The Astron Road Show

This fall the Astron Road Show will be in high gear!  We hope to see you at one of the following events this October.

On October 5th, Mike Maciekowich will present to the
Human Resources Association of the Twin Tiers (Corning, NY) on Compensation Strategies to Control Costs.  The session is part of the association's annual one day conference.

October 5 - 7th finds Jennifer Loftus in St. Petersburg, FL, presenting at the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC) annual HR Seminar.  Jennifer will present a concurrent session on total rewards trends for the coming year, and a general session on retaining and motivating long-service employees.

Mike Maciekowich and Nicholas Karras head to the land of the Packers and the Brewers for the annual Wisconsin State SHRM conference, October 6 - 8th in Appleton.  In addition to visiting with everyone in the exhibit hall, Mike will present an early bird session on "Building a Compensation Program Based on Changing Strategic Objectives, Focusing on Cost Controls and Real Life Solutions."

We'll see you on the road!


Fact or Fiction

Bananas are not radioactive.
Bananas are in fact radioactive. Explains one reference: "The fruit contains high levels of potassium. Radioactive K-40 has an isotopic abundance of 0.01% and a half-life of 1.25 billion years. The average banana contains around 450 mg of potassium and will experience about 14 decays each second."
Perhaps this explains why bananas mysteriously ripen so quickly sometimes!
Fruits and vegetables are an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.  What are some of your favorite fruits and vegetables and why?  Please share your experiences with us, and we'll feature them in the next issue of Astronology!
