50 of the most powerful business women

Indra Nooyi - PepsiCo chiefI’m out of town. I’m at a Surgery meeting. (high speed connection isn’t really high speed.  Therefore, it will be hard to post video until I get back home.)  There was a forum on diversity. Then I found this article. I have to admit that I didn’t know half of the people on the list. I didn’t know that woman is the head of PepsiCo. I need to read more business journals.

Indra Nooyi – All the arrows are pointing in the right direction, with revenues ($35.1 billion), operating profits ($6.4 billion), and earnings per share ($3) all rising strongly last year. The 2001 Quaker Foods acquisition, in which Nooyi played a key role, is working out well, and Pepsi International, a priority for the company and a particular interest for the Indian-born Nooyi, is coming on strong too; its revenues rose 14%, to $13 billion, and operating profits rose 21%, to $1.9 billion. Oh, and in May, Nooyi added the title of chairman to her own portfolio.

A most ridiculous suit (lawsuit)

A judge took a mom and pop dry cleaners to court over some lost pants. Judge Roy L. Pearson sued Soo Chung and his wife for $54 million. Yep, $54 million. I don’t understand it. I’ll never understand it. Even if it was my favorite, my lucky, my damn grandest pair of pants that I had ever owned, I don’t understand dragging these folks into court. Ask for $100. Ask for $400 for pain and a decrease in your luck factor but $54 million. That’s a waste of the court’s time.


From NYT:

A District of Columbia administrative law judge who filed a $54 million lawsuit against his neighborhood dry cleaner over a pair of missing pants will not get a penny, a court here ruled Monday.

Judge Judith Bartnoff of Superior Court ruled that Judge Roy L. Pearson Jr. failed to prove that Custom Cleaners misled consumers with its “satisfaction guaranteed” sign. For that matter, Judge Pearson was not even able to convince her that they had lost his pants.

“The court finds that the plaintiff is not entitled to any relief whatsoever,” Judge Bartnoff wrote. (more…)
