Judge orders end to Memphis Kellogg lockout

Kellogg
A judge has ordered the Kellogg Co. to put employees at its Memphis cereal production facility back to work.

Contract negotiations between the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union and Kellogg failed in October.

At Kamp KSI, unlocking global competencies is a chest move away

KSI
Kevin Monroe, 9, and Evan Bean, 10, stare intently at the pieces on a chess table. Kevin moves a pawn and looks at Evan. “You can do whatever you want to do now…” he says. 
 
“I know what I won’t do,” says Evan, as he slides a piece to a green space. 
 
The two cousins are just two of many children attending Kairos Services’ Kamp KSI summer camp. A nonprofit that works to help people become self-sufficient through employment, Kairos is committed to unlocking children’s global competencies by teaching children ages 6 to12 various disciplines to foster critical thinking, creativity and collaboration.
