03/14/10 MEDIA ALERT: Jane Genova: Our 2nd Revolution - Baby Boomers Keep Working

Biggest Experiment Next to Birth of Democracy: U.S. Baby Boomers Keep Working

Nearly one out of every three workers in America is over-50, documents the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Many of those Baby Boomers are pulling out all stops to continue just that way: Employed. Some can't afford to retire. More recognize that in capitalism not working means become invisible – and irrelevant. To remain marketable, they're disproving the myth that the aging resist change.

OVER-50: HOW WE KEEP WORKING, just published by Outskirts Press and available on Amazon.com, shows how flexible Baby Boomers are.

The book also hammers other ways to get, keep and move on to better paid employment. The author Jane Genova reset her own career in her 50s in 2003. Baby Boomers who don't stop working could put in play the biggest experiment in America since the birth of democracy. Again, that generation is taking center stage.

"Technology, a volatile global economy, and how the edge comes from creativity and risk are making work very different than it was even five years ago," says author Genova. She also co-wrote THE CRITICAL 14 YEAR OF YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE and operates two syndicated career sites http://careertranstions.typepad.com and http://over-50.typepad.com. "We Baby Boomers already started one revolution. This is our second as we redefine working, how and where it's done, and what it pays." She first realized this when her executive-communications boutique collapsed post-9/11.

After several tries, Genova launched niche enterprises in social media and transition coaching and lecturing. "Failure is the new rite of passage," she observes. On April 1, she addresses the New York State Bar Association on career change http://www.nysba.org.

OVER-50 predicts the lion's share of paid employment will take the form of just-in-time assignments. The workforce will be increasingly collar-blind. Baby Boomers will continually migrate among traditional white, blue, pink, gold, gray, and no collar areas. Unlike the generations following them, they dumped the baggage work usually carries such as the need for status, meaning, and lucrative income. When in career recovery, Genova worked as a just-in-time security guard in Sephora and Home Depot. Other insights and lessons are obvious in OVER-50's Table of Contents.

Whole Foods disaster and high tide

Mr. Nooose Man - where are you? Even the twits at Gr. Time had a real story up last night.

Here's post-able photos from the Whole Foods wall collapse.

Also, low tide at the sundial. The high tide wrack line from 10 pm the night before is in the foreground. Tides topped at at 12 Ft over mean low water.

The Town emergency crews were hooking up a generator there in Bruce Park to the sewage lift station, so somebody was mighty backed up.

No power yet on the north side of the Post Rd.

Topix Greenwich
Greenwich News - March 14, 2010
Tim Gaglio and Mark Mazzotta The Owners Of Pomodoro Pizzeria & Trattoria on East Putnam Avenue in Riverside Face Felony Charges In New York Two Riverside restaurant owners face felony charges after being accused Friday of failing to pay New York state sales taxes.
Antipasti, an Italian restaurant and wine bar at 1 N. Broadway, was charged with one count of second-degree grand larceny, a felony.
The charges were the result of joint investigations by the Westchester County District Attorney's Office and the state Department of Taxation and Finance.
Citi Center Café Inc., doing business as Antipasti, was accused of collecting and then failing to report sales-tax receipts in excess of $56,000 between Nov. 1, 2007, and Nov. 1, 2008.
The owners, Tim Gaglio and Mark Mazzotta, also own Amore Pizzeria and Pasta with locations on Broadway in Thornwood and Main Street in Armonk.
Tim Gaglio and Mark Mazzotta also own Pomodoro Pizzeria & Trattoria on East Putnam Avenue in Riverside.
Gaglio and Mazzotta could not be reached for comment.
Restaurants in New York are licensed to act as sales-tax agents and are required to remit those payments to the Department of Taxation on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis based on volume.
Antipasti's felony court date is pending. I
t is unclear if Tim Gaglio and Mark Mazzotta are current on Town of Greenwich or State Of Connecticut tax payments.
