“We’re doing our best to just make sure that we get every vote counted,” she said. “Whatever it takes to get that done, we’re going to do it.”- Advertisement – In the early hours of Friday, the nation’s attention turned to Clayton County, Georgia, where the latest batch of ballots narrowed President Trump’s lead in the state to fewer than 500 votes.By 4 a.m., 98 percent of the state’s precincts had reported their totals, with roughly 2,500 ballots left to count in Clayton. – Advertisement – Election workers in face masks and plastic visors counted absentee ballots — many of them from U.S. service people — through the night. “We are going to stay here until every single absentee ballot is counted,” Shauna Dozier, the director of Clayton County’s board of elections, said in a televised interview with CNN shortly after 2 a.m, adding that she expected to finish counting later in the morning. “We’re doing our best to just make sure that we get every vote counted. Whatever it takes to get that done, we’re going to do it.” Election workers in gloves, face masks and plastic visors counted absentee ballots — many of them from U.S. service people — through the night.” We are going to stay here until every single absentee ballot is counted,” Shauna Dozier, the director of Clayton County’s board of elections, said in a televised interview with CNN shortly after 2 a.m, adding that she expected to finish counting later in the morning. Local journalists and election observers anxiously watched the count through a window from an adjoining room, trying to interpret the poll workers’ movements for signs of how many votes remained.Clayton County, a heavily Democratic area south of Atlanta, received roughly 30,000 absentee ballots this year, compared to only 3,170 in 2016, Ms. Dozier said. The margin in Georgia remains so narrow that election analysts said it would be difficult to call the race early Friday, even if Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. pulls ahead. But a victory for Mr. Biden would significantly narrow Mr. Trump’s path to holding onto the presidency.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –
I was going to include this in my “five key plays” yesterday but Justin Gilbert kick return TDs deserve posts of their own.Just for fun let me walk you through what happens in my mind when Gilbert houses a kick. That’ll be fun, no?0:09 – “You slipped 5 yards deep into the end zone and you’re still trying to return this? We need a clock-killing drive to get Weeden into rhythm, not another bonehead special teams play!”0:10 – “What am I saying…this is Justin Gilbert.”0:12 – “Omg there’s a hole the size of an Olsen twin, I bet he can get through that!”0:13 – “Crap, that guy hosed him, he’s going down. You know he should really put some weight on in the offseason and try to come back looking like Patrick Peterson next year.”0:14 – “Still on his feet?! Get an eraser for Perrish Cox’s name!!!”0:15 – “Only the kicker to beat! Justin Gilbert will not fall at the hands of a kicker.”0:18 – “That guy has no angle, oh my gosh, he’s gone.”0:19 – “HE’S HOUSING THIS!”0:20 – “Oh…oh…I’m woozy, I feel light-headed.”0:21 – [large crash that sounds like a jaw bone hitting a wooden floor]0:22 – Just this.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

HernandezHernandezRandy HernandezExecutive vice president of operationsKenall Manufacturing Co.Whether leading a business or a sports team, the ability to see around corners is an important skill. Randy Hernandez, executive vice president of operations at Kenall Manufacturing Co. in Kenosha, recommends the book “Blink: The Power of Thinking without Thinking” to those interested in improving their ability to skate to where the puck is going.“More than anything, ‘Blink’ has a lot to do with studying cognition,” Hernandez said. “Taking information and synthesizing that information in a way that’s useful.”While one may not have all the information, “Blink” shows how a person can still make good decisions without the complete picture.“You listen to snippets and small amounts of information and you apply that to what the decision is,” Hernandez said. Having studied some of this, I think it’s helped me make better decisions over the course of my career, much better for the folks in the organization and for the business in general. Also, it helps in seeing this ability in other people.”“Blink”By Malcolm Gladwell Get our email updatesBizTimes DailyManufacturing WeeklyNonprofit WeeklyReal Estate WeeklySaturday Top 10Wisconsin Morning Headlines Subscribe
