Sassy City Girl reviews, Orphan Black. Watch it now on Crave TV. Tracy Gerhardt’s Love Winx Page.

Orphan Black .png

Orphan Black is a Canadian sci-fi TV series filmed mostly in Toronto. The fifth and final season started on June 10, 2017. I first came across this show in 2014 and it’s been my favorite ever since. It examines moral issues around cloning, has great characters, and is constantly surprising me. I’m sad that it’s ending, but I have seen what happens to shows that get dragged out so they keep airing. Besides, it will be an amazing season if the first episode was any indication.

Orphan Black centers around a group of female clones all played by Tatiana Maslany. The series opens with con-artist Sarah Manning witnessing a woman commit suicide. She notices that Beth Childs looks exactly like her and steals her purse. She meets several of her clones soon after. At first, Sarah is only interested in Beth’s money, but she grows to care about her sisters. They are fighting threats from the extremely religious Proletheans and the science institute DYAD. A few of the clones also develop a

A few of the clones also develop a mysterious life-threatening illness. The show examines the moral implications of cloning as well as how it affects each sister’s identity. Other clones include soccer mom Alison, scientist Cosima, Ukrainian assassin Helena, and “pro clone” Rachel. Each one has her own personality and struggles.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe they are all portrayed by the same actress. Maslany is extremely talented, doing many different accents flawlessly. The non-clone characters are fantastic as well. Sarah’s biological daughter Kira is very precocious and senses when things are not right. Her foster brother Felix and mother Siobhan have strong personalities yet are very loving. Cosima’s girlfriend Delphine does whatever she feels is best for her even if it compromises their relationship. Alison’s husband Donnie often provides much needed comic relief. I recall a scene where he accidentally killed an antagonist and I couldn’t help laughing.

Another thing that makes the show amazing is unexpected plot twists. I didn’t like Helena in the first season. However, she turned out to have a soft side and is now one of my favorites. Certain characters turn out to have hidden motives or be more involved in the conspiracy than I thought. The genetic original was not who I was expecting at all. There are many emotional moments. One scene in season four had me crying harder than I ever have during a TV show. I even tweeted that I wished I could kill a certain antagonist. However, there are many heartwarming moments too. I really enjoyed the ending of season three where several clones were having dinner together and reminiscing about recent events.

If you have not seen Orphan Black, I highly recommend it. The show deals with moral issues of cloning, has amazing characters with strong bonds, and always surprises you. New episodes air every Saturday at 10 PM on Space and are available on space.ca soon after. Past seasons can be watched on Crave TV. I am excited to see what transpires during the rest of the final season.

TTC You said it campaign parody

You said it campaign.png

Ashton writes: So if you have been on the TTC recently you have probably seen their ad campaign “You said it.” The ad campaign designed to shame riders with bad behaviors with sourced tweets.

Well, I decided I will parody that campaign with some tweets you probably won’t see on the TTC subway anytime soon! Yeah I plan to make this a regular thing, so please feel free to tweet me at Ashton4321 on or Instagram me something about TTC at AshtonQBE.

That actually happened to me commuting to Eglington West. It was actually scary how wrong the driver was in this situation because he was rushing an elderly man. Is Toronto supposed to be accessible? I think we are missing the mark!

Why we aren’t currently social media marketing

Presentation1.png

Ashton Deroy writes: It is plain to see I still write Social media, website & SEO content. However I have not taken out any web based advertising in 2017 at all. Why haven’t I taken out any ad space? According to Marketline Instagram and Facebook are the best affordable mediums for a B2B targeted campaign.

What am I doing instead? I am relying on content to gain traction, I am reaching out in the community and utilizing the SEO tools with the WordPress.com Business package. Listen it is clear to see that within this year if I want to continue running my business I will need a new advertising + Sales campaign! It is just a matter of creating one that will bring in new contacts that I can convert in to clients. I am also going to hang up posters around Toronto.

It is also important to not here that it is great if Social Media Marketing boosts your idea! It is not great if your idea lives and dies with Social Media Marketing…

There is no conversion guarantees in Social media marketing. Some people like to think like, okay if I get in front of this ____ people, I will sell to 4% of the people! It is highly idealistic, but you a web based business, If you convert 1%, it is a miracle. Plus web businesses have the cliche flaw of being really under developed. I sold to my first client thanks to social media advertising, but it was a small sell.

Minimizing advertising to focus on development. Ironically, I saw Beaut doing this and I thought it was stupid as hell! It still kind of is, because my sales projects aren’t down just my advertising is down. Toronto Businessphere needs a new logo, we need to print merchandise & create a community relations plan.

Capital expansion. Ashton Deroy is going to be starting a job at Teleperformance in time to put a little capital in the business and keep fueling this little fire. Don’t let the internet fuel you, these businesses require a massive amount of capital to start, and a massive amount to keep going! Considering people that enhance Toronto-Businessphere get paid. The need is still present for full time employment to continue development of the brand.

My friend actually said “This is a good idea but I wouldn’t spend money on it until it makes money.” Having no business background she had no idea for an idea to make money you actually have to spend a lot of money. Business projects are long term investments that require capital to fund and can require increasing amounts of capital for five years before even approaching a break even point. This was something I learned through studying Financial accounting in school though, not from working telemarketing where her and I met.

I do see other people online begging for their projects to expand so it can become full time work. I actually don’t think that is what I want at this time… I think I am glad this project is still small because if it was big it would be out of control a bit. I also think I miss the working world and I can’t wait to go back in to it and develop more professionally.

Flight service issues

 

Flight attendants are over stressed!

Sometimes when you work in a service role with a company you can only do so much before you break down. In the flight service industry, there are still a lot of glitches in providing high standard customer service. 

Flights are still overbooked, regulations are increasingly high and the expectations of employees in mid-level jobs are becoming more & more demanding.  

It becomes increasingly hard to do your job as a flight attendant when you consider your large scope of responsibility. This includes but is not limited to: 

  • Ensuring emergency equipment works
  • That Cabins are clean 
  • Attending to passengers 
  • Makes sure there is enough food on board 

You are expected to do this in conditions where: 

  • Your company irresponsibly oversells tickets
  • Post 9/11 regulations practically force you to be suspicious of all customers. 
  • Customers are uncomfortable due to lack of space in the cabin. 

Of course, all of this is becoming harder during high use times of flight services. Here are some examples of flight mishaps during heightened service times. The downside of over stressing customer service people is stuff like this happens, read articles below: 

Anderson, Mae. ” American Airlines grounds flight attendant after a confrontation on plane.” CP24. N.p., 22 Apr. 2017. Web. 22 Apr. 2017. <CP24 Flight grounded>. Leslie Scott a public ambassador of American Airlines was put on the spot in the eyes of the press after a male flight attendant had a physical confrontation taking away a stroller from a passenger. This article proves working in the public service sector is increasingly difficult and to some degree, there is bound to be a burnout. Although you can not excuse this public mishap you have to wonder if the stress of his employment caused this!

Passy, Jacob. “Nearly half of young Americans won’t fly United anymore.” Market Watch. N.p., 22 Apr. 2017. Web. 22 Apr. 2017. <Young Americans won’t fly anymore>. This article talks about young people now making the choice not to fly. Also the wrongful removal of David Dao a 69 year old doctor on a United Airlines flight. This another famous example of customer mistreatment on a North American flight service. Just another reason why consumers are considering their options in national and international travel. Are the employees really to blame? Or are the consumers right in blaming the company for creating such hellish travel conditions?

To conclude, it is my opinion that Flight attendants are in an overstressed role that should be more service focussed but rather has become more job focused. It is my opinion that certain attendants should not work with the consumers but rather just handle the administrative resource & emergency duties. Flight attendants who specialize in customer service should be the only ones dealing with consumers.

Ashton Deroy Writes “I heard this morning about the attack that left 5 dead near British Parliament from 680 News. This is deeply saddening and tragic news that we are still facing these acts of hate in 2017.”

It takes a special kind of lunatic to say “I am going to make a statement of defiance by killing people with my car!” If you really feel that defiant don’t join a cult movement. Take up drinking… Like normal people!”Satirical commentary on the above event. 


Diana UK.png

Diana & I talk.png

Diana Skye writes: I was very saddened to hear about what happened in London. While there have been terrorist attacks all over Europe in recent years, the UK was largely spared from them. It just goes to show you are never completely safe from these heartless and selfish terrorists.

Even in Canada there have been attacks, notably the one in Ottawa in 2014 and the incident Ashton and I discussed above. That was when a terrorist attacker wielding a knife went into a military recruitment centre in Toronto and stabbed two soldiers. He also attempted to stab Ashton’s aunt who worked there. Fortunately none of the injuries were serious.

My thoughts go out to London and everyone affected by such senseless attacks.


Organizational Culture Study for Business Management Class. 

Ashton Deroy Writes Now to move on to some cool Business School assignments I wanted to share with Blog readers.

What is Organizational Culture? According to works cited in the PDF Organizational culture is defined as,  A set of values, beliefs & attitudes possessed by employees of a company.

The major players we found in Organizational culture were:

    • Terrence Deal and Allan A.Kennedy  – They proposed one of the first models of organizational culture. Terrence was a University professor at the University of California.
    • Eric Sinoway – A writer who writes boldly for Harvard Business Review that top performers who hurt employee culture should be fired.
    • James Wolfensohn – A former investment banker who said re-staffing management roles was the best way to change organizational structure in a company.

Biography on Eric Sinoway

Biography on Allan A.Kennedy

Below is a PDF on Organizational Culture.

Organizational Culture

Statement

One cool thing I found on the work for successful Organizational Cultures, is that they have a lot of affirmative action. A company wants to cut out the cancers so that the life that is the company can live with the highest quality. Alot this statement stems from the investment banker James Wolfensohn’s work in organizational culture structure in the investment banking section of finance.

On thing a professor repeats to me consistently is this. “You can’t soar with eagles, when you fly with chickens.” I apply this to work relationships, friendships & choice of romantic partners.

I have seen what being passive gets you from years of watching loved ones get screwed over by toxic relationships, friendships & relatives. So why bring that crap to work? 

Small Business = Big pressure!

Small Business = Big Pressure.png

Written by Ashton Deroy: Small Businesses are currently defined in Canada as Businesses with under 100 employees. With that in mind we should define a micro-business as a business with under 20 employees. 

A lot of people think if you work in a small business this takes away your pressure for high performance and professionalism. When in fact your small team and close knit relationship with your boss probably in fact demands a higher performance not less! 

While people may think it is okay to express stress by exhibiting bad attitudes at work. The fact of the matter is in a small business setting the quarters are much too tight between a boss and the employees to display that kind of behavior. As a result this cliche proves that you need to perform higher in a small business rather than lower. It goes to show Starter companies are not the kickback, feet on the table kind of businesses people expect them to be!

Higher stakes when employees under perform. 

Personal Capital at stake– Take it from Ashton Deroy an ex employee of two small businesses. When the boss has personal equity in the business and they know their ass is on the line. They are far more likely to care when you screw up! Far less likely to show sympathies bigger companies have the benefits of showing.

Running a small business is serious and if they have gotten the business to self-sustain you can bet the spent a lot of money to get there. I have worked for an ex Health food store in Brighton Ontario which has shut down and Willow’s Publishing on commission. Those were to examples of the most anal bosses I have ever had! 

Pressure to keep up – If you are the new guy on a 5-20 person team. You can start your job with your foot half way out the door because the first 3 months will make you or break you. Now is the time to shine, or pack your shit. Dangers of entering a business clique like this is working against the waves in motion, haunting productivity or going against the business culture. Your best hope is to assimilate and find your place in the business. 

Pressure to prove you are worth the cost – In a small business every puzzle piece has to fit. If you can’t prove you are worth the money, save the business money or generate revenue. You are out the door. 

To conclude weather you are the employee of a small business or the owner. There are a lot of pressures in play when use real money to self-start a real business. If you look to fit in to the small business culture prove you are a good investment, keep up at the job and prove you are worth every dime in your new job. If you don’t you will just be the guy who used to work for the small business company.
