A study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE by scientists at the University of Maryland and the US Department of Agriculture stated, "Recent research is uncovering diverse sub-lethal effects of pesticides on bees." Earlier this spring, the USDA released a report stating its fears that the U.S. does not have enough honeybees to pollinate crops this year, meaning our nation's food supply could be at risk.
Long before colony collapse disorder hit national news, Ted Dennard, lifelong beekeeper and owner of Savannah Bee Company, made it his personal mission to protect these vital creatures. Last week he officially started The Bee Cause Project: a not-for-profit that teaches children the ABCs of honeybees, beekeeping, and the importance of both. The goal of The Bee Cause Project is to put observation hives in 1,000 schools, instilling a sense of responsibility for our environment in our nation's children.
The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are thrilled to present Mike Veeck, one of America’s and Charleston's most recognized marketing, promotion and business leaders, as the speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, August 1, 2013.
Mike is pinch hitting for us replacing our previous speaker, Sue Stevens, who recently resigned her position as the Director of Charleston Airports. Who better to pinch hit than the part owner of five baseball teams, including the Charleston RiverDogs.
As small business owners, we prepare business plans, marketing plans, promotion plans and even exit strategies. But things happen that you just can't foresee.
How can you mitigate a problem?
What are the best steps to take?
How can you turn a problem into a "Positive?"
Mike Veeck is an advertising professional, Adjunct Professor at The Citadel's MBA program, coveted public speaker, founder of the Veeck Promotional Seminar, and all around idea man.
He has spoken and entertained groups at companies such as the NBA,
3M, General Mills, and NASCAR. He's appeared on 60 Minutes,
HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, NBC Nightly News and ESPN
Sportscenter, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC’s Nightline, National Public
Radio’s Weekend Edition and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
Mike began his baseball career with the White Sox and also worked for the Detroit Tigers and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. It is his inherited belief that anything is possible and no idea so silly, and that is how Veeck operates his ball clubs and businesses. Veeck has hired a dog and a pig to deliver baseballs to the umpire, a Roman Catholic nun to give massages, mimes to perform instant replays and locked out fans of the stadium to set an all-time attendance for the fewest people at a game.
Each month, Small Business Lunch at Halls features a distinguished speaker from the business, civic or political arenas upstairs at Halls Chophouse with an imaginative three course meal prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner.

"Hip and high-end, the spacious, apartment-style rooms inside The Restoration on King come with romantic little touches like robes and private balconies to help amp up that lovin’ feeling. The AAA Four-Diamond boutique property is at the crosshairs of the downtown shopping district, but with just 16 rooms, the hotel still feels intimate enough for a couple’s getaway."
Welcome Cariloha. It’s not a typo. Cariloha (from the words Caribbean and Aloha) is
a recently opened King Street shop that features a unique assortment of products all
made from bamboo. If you’re thinking fishing poles and flower arrangements, think
According to Cariloha’s website, “Bamboo is largely considered a woody plant;
however, it's really a true grass. It can be found in many parts of the world but is
primarily grown in East Asia and South East Asia, where it’s used for everything
from building materials to food sources! Bamboo’s soft, silky feel, its antimicrobial
qualities, its ability to take colors well and its breathability are designed to appeal to
those who seek the very best in natural luxury. Bamboo means soft, cool and clean.”
And green. Bamboo is cut and soaked in an environmentally friendly solution that
breaks down the fibers, which are dried into parchment-like sheets. They are milled
into fluffiness, spun into threads and voilá, cloth twice as soft as cotton and nicely
comparable to cashmere and silk.
The beautifully appointed, compact and charming space at 341 King Street is now
filled with soft apparel, bath items, handbags, bedding, blankets, towels and robes.
They even have those ubiquitous second skin yoga tanks and pants seen everywhere
on people with perfect bodies. And some that aren’t. ‘nuff said. Stop in, look around
and say hello to husband/wife managers Ryan and Ashley Porter. It’s a friendly,
pretty place. And soft. Very soft.
August is fast-approaching as is the month's lovely peridot birthstone! We love this gorgeous peridot necklace from Joint Venture Estate Jewelers .

The Preservation Society of Charleston’s Book & Gift Shop at King & Queen will host author Nicole Seitz to sign her newest book Beyond Molasses Creek. Having traveled to the ends of the earth as a flight attendant, Ally Green has finally returned to the Lowcountry to bury her father as well as the past. But Vesey Washington is still living across the creek, and theirs is a complicated relationship—he was once her best friend . . . and also part of the reason she’s stayed away so long. When Ally discovers a message her father left behind asking her to quit running, it seems her past isn’t through with her yet.
As Ally’s wandering spirit wrestles with a deep longing to flee again, a young woman on the other side of the world escapes her life of slavery in the rock quarries of Nepal. A mysterious sketchbook leads Sunila Kunari to believe there’s more to her story than she’s ever been told, and she’s determined to follow the truth wherever it leads her.
A deep current intertwines the lives of these three souls, and a destiny of freedom, faith, and friendship awaits them all on the banks of Molasses Creek.
This book signing event is free and open to the public. Stop by the Preservation Society of Charleston’s Book & Gift Shop on Sunday, July 14 from 1-4pm during Second Sunday on King Street.

The Real Estate Studio is pleased to host a show by
Belgian artist Fred Jamar, with an Artist Reception on Friday, July 12th from 5:00 –
8:00pm. The show will remain at the Studio from July 3 – August 13.
Before moving to Charleston in 1997, Fred was a valedictorian from the Belgian
Maritime College and spent three years at sea. With a major in finance, he spent 30
years at J. P. Morgan & Co. focusing on global credit exposure, so was able to live
and travel all over the world. There are no continents and very few countries he has
not seen. While living in the United States, a favorite family vacation spot was
Kiawah, which eventually led to him permanently moving to Charleston in 1997 after
retirement, to “the most European of American cities”.
