postheadericon NC Restaurant Puts Up “No Guns” Sign… Guess Who Didn’t Listen

DURHAM, NC — Once again, we have been given an example of the mindset of “banning guns makes people safer” blasted to bits when faced with the brutal reality that criminals don’t operate on those rules with the news of a recent armed robbery of a barbecue restaurant in Durham, NC.

While this story is from a few years back, it’s worth sharing as another example of how ‘no guns’ signs are pretty useless.

According to WTVD:

Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor.

The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured.

Not only was the place robbed, but employees were hurt. They could have been killed.

That danger could have been greatly mitigated by not having a “no guns allowed” sign on their door, as Guns ‘n’ Freedom reports. In fact, I would dare go so far as to say that the management of the store endangered their employees by having that sign there.

It’s grossly irresponsible.

And on a personal note — I am a NC native. I used to love this restaurant, but you better believe that I don’t go there any more. I haven’t been since I got my permit.

It’s too dangerous, and I won’t support a business that actively works to thwart the exercising of my rights.

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about this robbery!

postheadericon MetLife puts customers first through the power of Office 365

REDMOND, Wash. — Oct. 21, 2013 — MetLife Inc., a leading provider of insurance, annuities and employee benefit programs serving more than 90 million customers, has selected Microsoft Office 365 to offset the challenges that can accompany a rapidly expanding global workforce and the company’s global presence. MetLife has begun deployment to its 64,000 employees and expects to have Office 365 fully implemented by November.

“As we expand our global presence, we had to start thinking differently about how to get things done more quickly while still putting our customers first. This absolutely affected the way we evaluated our previous technology investments,” said Jim O’Donnell, senior vice president and chief technology officer, MetLife. “As a whole, the insurance industry can be challenging for consumers to navigate, so getting all of our global employees onto one standardized platform helps us collaborate more effectively and efficiently. In turn, we can ensure the customer experience is as smooth and consistent as possible.”

The move to Office 365 will allow MetLife to reinvest cost savings into mission-critical technologies, which will enable MetLife to further strengthen its focus on customer-centricity. In an increasingly competitive industry, the ability to strongly differentiate the brand as customer-centric will help MetLife face competition from other insurance companies head-on.

“The opportunity to take advantage of Outlook and the other tools included in the Office 365 suite will ultimately help us mitigate the time and distance factors that can be detrimental to customer service. Office 365 supports and enables our strategy of customer-centricity,” O’Donnell said.
