    Here’s a couple lines from the “Pure Loyalty” website you liked:

    “For the safety of our students and their devices are routines are consistent and effective. We believe in making sure that we are reliable, accurate and fast.”

    Oh yes–that REALLY makes me trust their accuracy!

    Seriously–you like this service? How about TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONES AT SCHOOL AND IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY PARENTS CAN CALL THE SCHOOL!

    Related news about Boston Beer company.

    They have set up a fund (I’ve heard both $250k and $600k) to help small craft brewers get started or expand. Any money that comes back goes into the pool to help somebody else, until it runs dry.

    In addition, they provide direct coaching and even help purchase ingredients at Sam Adam’s bulk rates.

    Keep in mind, that these are potential competitors in the craft beer market. The hope, of course, being that anything that helps grow the craft beer market as a whole benefits Boston Beer Company more than they lose to these new brewers.

    (Also, Jim Koch seems like a genuinely nice guy.)
