Who is Calin Rovinescu? No stranger to Air Canada

 Calin Rovinescu, new president and chief executive officer of Air Canada, “is not a traditional airline guy,” one analyst said Tuesday. But he is no stranger to Canada's dominant airline, or the turbulence it once again finds itself in.
As a corporate lawyer and managing partner with the law firm Stikeman Elliott, Mr. Rovinescu advised Air Canada in its successful 1999 defence against a hostile takeover bid by Onex Corp. and its partner, American Airlines Inc.
The following year, 2000, Mr. Rovinescu joined the airline as executive vice-president for corporate development and strategy. He subsequently served as chief restructuring officer.
“In the latter role, Mr. Rovinescu was a key figure in the company's emergence from [Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act],” analyst Ben Cherniavsky of Raymond James Ltd. said in a research note Tuesday. “We remember him as an impressive figure with a sharp mind and a keen understanding of corporate strategy.”

Air Canada brings in 'hatchet man' reviled by unions to oversee dramatic change

The Amazing Race: Visit to Romania - A Preview

Sunday’s episode of CBS’ The Amazing Race is sure to become a classic as teams travel to Romania and visit Transylvania, the home of Dracula’s castle. While there, teams will search for their next clue - which will be buried in a coffin outside of the castle. Teams will visit another landmark while in Romania: The National Sports Complex in Bucharest where Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci trained. While at the complex, teams will be faced with a Road Block where a member from each team will have to learn and correctly perform gymnastic maneuvers.

The third leg of the race will also be filled with drama as mishaps happen to a number of teams that could affect the outcome of the race. Tension continues to rise between Victor and Tammy as the siblings struggle to find a harmonious working relationship and the right path to get to their next clue. Brad and Victoria find themselves arriving at the airport after their flight to Romania has left. Kris and Amanda pull a Toni/ Dallas and lose their money and passports. Cara and Jamie lose patience when they learn their taxi driver isn’t as familiar with the area as he claimed.

As we watch Sunday’s episode, Amazing Race host, Phil Keoghan will be preparing to leave on his own adventure. The New Zealander native who admits to having flown across the United States dozens of times has decided to pedal across America to see the country up close. His itinerary begins in Los Angeles on March 28 and ends in New York on May 9 just in time for the finale of The Amazing Race the next day.

Phil plans to visit 30 cities and along the way will make appearances at open casting calls for The Amazing Race, and visit local GNC stores and CBS affiliates. He welcomes Race fans and former Race contestants to join him on his journey as he travels through communities and stops to sign autographs. He also plans to attend bike rallies sponsored by the National MS Society.

Among the cities Phil will pass through will be Las Vegas; Denver; Lincoln, Neb.; Des Moines, Iowa; Chicago; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Columbus, Ohio; Pittsburgh; Washington D.C.; Baltimore; Philadelphia and New York.

Watch your CBS station to follow along on Phil’s trip across the country and tune in on Sunday nights at 8 to watch as The Amazing Race contestants travel around the globe on their own adventure.

Here are a few quotes of inspiration and some food for thought about work and life ... CARPE DIEM (seize the day)

"Networking is more than meeting the right people. It's about connecting with their purpose and helping them achieve their goals. It's about connectin them with their success."

  • Craig Elias: Canada's Mr. Networking
  • "So you ask “what can I do to build confidence in myself”? Start by discovering who you are (your Personal Brand), which will allow you to understand what you need to do in order to gain this confidence you seek. Once discovered, it is all about repetition, through telling yourself that you are unique and “you have nothing to lose.” Saying this will help you be more outgoing, which translates into confidence."

  • Dan Schawbel
  • "Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives. Unfortunately most of us are completely unaware of this fact and we do not monitor our thoughts with the care needed so that we can create in our lives the results we say we want. Since the great majority of people do not feel worthy and deserving of abundant good fortune, radiant good health and total success in all areas of their lives that overriding thought pattern controls the results people get. The first order of business of anyone who wants to enjoy success in all areas of his or her life is to take charge of the internal dialogue they have and only think, say and behave in manner consistent with the results they truly desire. - Sidney Madwed

    "You cannot escape the results of your thoughts. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain or rise with your thoughts, your vision, your ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration." - James Lane Allen

    "In football you always get judged on your last game. Whoever you are, or how amazing you are, it's the last game that everyone has seen." - Thierry Henry

    "80% of the stuff you get you are never going to need again. 20% you do need, and you need to prioritize its importance."

  • Julie Mahan
  • "It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project." - Napoleon Hill

    "The only thing that doesn't change is change itself." - Heraclitus (You can't step into the same river twice, the old Greek said, because the water keeps moving. - If you're clinging to your old reliable tools, you're not just standing still, you're actually moving backwards from the point of view of those who are moving on with the river of technological change.)

    "The secret of man's success resides in his insight into the moods of people, and his tact in dealing with them." - J. G. Holland

    "To put distance between you and your competition, you must become more VALUABLE... not just more PRODUCTIVE."

  • E. R. Haas
  • "When one door closes another door opens; but we do often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us." - Alexander Graham Bell

    "Successful people are not necessary smarter than anyone else, they are simply more effective."

  • Ross Mackay
  • "You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing."

  • Dale Carnegie
