I came across a site a few days ago, but I think I seen it before.

Now after seeing this site, I thought to myself this is exactly what I want. Not only people archiving text snippet from things on the net in their blogs, but now you can save links, share them, and not only search through them, but see what is popular.

Save This is more advanced than Delicious, but Save This costs more. It would cost me 300 dollars a month to keep Save This running for members of Knowledge Net and joeKnowl...

If you don't know, GM is having some troubles lately. It would seem to the point of pulling ads out of a newspaper because the editorials are calling for their heads as far as being a valuable company.

So what is their plane, in particular with Buick and Pontiac?
Businessweek Auto: GM's New Order

Well, it would seem that both brands will get a reduction in how many cars they will have and their will be a channel combining of which will align GMC, Buick and Pontiac in the same dealerships...

At the link, the article discusses how easy it is to drive around on the grease in your kitchen, beans and other products that can make oil toeher then... oil from Suadia Arabia.

I havAfter reading the article I was left thinking to myself, "Why, then don't we have this fuel for our cars?"
The article doesn't really answer the question. Due to my lack of time right now I haven't been able to Google it. I am sure it will be an interesting find to say the least, as to why we have not switched...

Bad Girls Go Wild
By Julie Scelfo Newsweek

.... The tragic event, which took place after the girls came to blows over a pink rubber ball, was a sad reminder that children can possess the same brutal instincts as adults. But for experts on youth crime, the killing was another instance of what they view as a burgeoning national crisis: the significant rise in violent behavior among girls. According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Report, the number of girls 10 to 17 arrested for a...

If I said it once, I must have said it more than twice; working hard is not enough. Working hard is a key element to 'making it', but it is not THE element nor is it the only one.

The way I look at it, this is how it works:
Hard Work: 50%
Oppertunity: 25%
Take Risk: 10%
Connections: 10%
Other: 5%
(Other could be anything from winning the lotto to some odd beating event happening)
(Yes I pulled those stats out of my ass.. but I told you that already)

Hard work helps to get you there ...

This is for the over worked, indebted American workers who seem to be more disgruntled then ever before:

"More and more Americans are turning to debt to pay for lifestyles their current incomes can't support," writes reporter Bob Davis. "They are determined to live better than their parents, seduced by TV shows like 'The O.C.' and 'Desperate Housewives,' which take upper-class life for granted, and bombarded with advertisements for expensive automobiles and big-screen TVs. Financial firms hav...

Are women just not aggressive enough? Does it start at school and teachers not picking female students? Here is a quote from the Wokplace article:

The women in the study opted out of a math tournament more often than the men did, despite the fact that many of the women performed the problems better or equally well. By declining the chance to compete, the women also turned down a shot at higher pay.

Most men, even those who performed poorly, chose to compete.

I know someone who fits t...

While this article is like totally promoting Outlook and MSN customer relationship management, it still is a good read. Keeping a good contacts list is just what you should do whether you have a job or ot. If you are starting your own business it is, of course, a good idea.

Does your baby cost too much? LOL
Thinking about having a baby on purpose? You might want to think about the cost: 250,000 USD. That is a lot of life time dollars. Lets just say its 22 years (4 year of college included... like anyone ACTUALLY takes 4 years anymore) - that is about 11363 a year. Of course, kids are moving back with their parents after college because they can't find work (or work that supports them where they live) so what happens then?

Too bad the number250,000 is actually d...

CBS seemed to have learned that after a reporter cursed out some annouying purposely put in place spectators by the Opie and Anthony radio show (yes, the same people who dared New yorkers to have sex in a church)

CBS fired the reporter, but people from all over the city wrote letters acking for his return.

Here is a quote:

Mr. Chi'en, acting human, lost his cool. After finishing his report, he turned to his harassers and yelled something on the order of, "What is your problem, man?" Tha...

Here is a clip from a day 3 article:

Mr. Croteau, who will be 50 in June, grew up in Keene, an old mill town in southern New Hampshire. His father was a factory worker whose education ended at the eighth grade; his mother had some factory jobs, too. Mr. Croteau had a difficult childhood and quit school at 16. He then left home, joined the Navy and drifted through a long series of jobs without finding any real calling. He married his pregnant 19-year-old girlfriend and had two daughters, Lael...

Here is a quote:

The cities that topped our list have all been regarded as "Renaissance" or "revitalized" cities, perhaps as a result of the influx of large corporations and federal defense spending. Chart-topper New London, CT is the new research and development headquarters of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, as well as home to a US Naval and Coast Guard base (slated to be closed).

Huntsville, AL, which landed second on the list of cities with the best "Salary Value", has seen a substantial ...
