BizVoice Extra: Auto and Steel Industries: Early Sparks, Enduring Impact

BizVoice® Extra: I Can Never Get Enough of History

Tony Edmonds was an accomplished Ball State University history professor. So accomplished that many years ago he made a three-hour-plus night class in the subject both interesting and intriguing.

BizVoiceExtra: ‘Scalers’ Soaring to New Heights

I, like many others, have been keeping a close watch on Scale Computing in recent years. There has been plenty to see – with more to come.

The (motivational) writing is on the wall in a room at Goodwill Commercial Services (GCS) in Indianapolis. It bears inspiring inscriptions from graduates of New Beginnings, a six-month program that combines on-the-job experience and classroom training for ex-offenders. “I put my quote up there on that wall (on graduation day in 2018),” forklift operator Greg Perry reveals during a [...]

In fact, Promise Indiana’s program is directed at communities around Indiana that work to help equip their youth and families with a number of financial resources and support, including [...]
