Final Decision May Be Looming...

The long term benefits to the community and the others it provides consistent revenue for greatly outweigh the short term cash they will get by selling the building in my opinion.

Places like this educate the community and help it to solidify.

We still have time to get the decision reversed though, so please sign the SAVE petition on facebook!

My Family Loves Eco Friendly Products from Tom's of Maine

This post brought to you by Toms of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.
Tom's of Maine: Eco-Friendly Company & Products
My mother and I have been using Tom's Of Maine products for like 20 years now.  We first started many years ago when it was brought to our attention that aluminum in other deodorants may be harmful or even carcinogenic.  Actually, now that I think about it, her mother was the first person to recommend their deodorant.  Grandma lives on a farm in Gainesville, FL so she is highly environmentally conscious.  And I frequently thank her instilling those same values in my brother and I.
Nowadays, I have two small children myself and choosing safe products is very high on the list for my wife and I.  Add to that the fact that many global corporations are polluting the planet and hindering eco-friendly legislation.
Check out some of the articles on their "Good Matters" blog (http://www.tomsofmaine.com/blog) to get a quick understanding of how "Green" Tom's of Maine actually is.  Our children deserve a green planet and companies like this "Get It."  So please give their products a try and I am certain you will not be disappointed: http://www.tomsofmaine.com/
P.S.  They are having a contest where you could win a $500 Target gift card just by sending out a tweet: http://thatswickedfresh.com/  That's Wicked Fresh contest page

Children's Aid Society Leaving Lower Manhattan! Please Help

The charity is tricking people with that explanation, which actually is incorrect. (The money could be better used for poor kids) which is a good point but they are closing one of the few locations that actually produce large amounts of revenue that is then sent to locations that need funding.

Right Now! these centers product revenue which is used for people who need it. long term revenue and fund raising efforts for the entire charity is worth way more if this location stays open. And the amount of money they will get for selling the buildings during a horrible real estate market will be millions of dollars lower that what the actual value is.

please help if you can!

Traditional Media Hates Links (HyperLinks) & Series of Tubes

I still do not understand why traditional media continues to resist change by not using links when referencing proper nouns like Amazon Kindle, Verizon, and Hershey's like done here in the first sentence. I'm impressed you were intelligent enough to link to your own content though. And i wonder if this will pass moderation. Just in case it does not I will publish on Google SideWiki because its a great modern tool that adds value to traditional content similar to the wonderful little "Link" or "HyperLink" that gets hidden by Old media, cannibalized by Facebook & Twitter and devalued by Google (GOOG).

Meanwhile, with out the mere "HyperLink" the internet would have gone nowhere.

Bloomberg Rogue on Education!!!

How can you possibly justify putting someone with no relevant experience in such an important post?

Why don't you hire me as your pilot for your next flight then? You think this woman can fathom the horrors of inner city schools? You think she will understand educators when they speak?

Time will tell, but its not looking good Bloomberg.

Be Thankful You are NOT Starving Right Now!

Its one of the greatest lessons we could ever learn. Be thankful for every breath, every moment, every interaction….because there are many who would give everything for that one breath. One more moment with their loved ones.

Be thankful that you are reading this and not one of the 10,000 children who will die today because of global poverty. Even much of America lives below the poverty line these days. Be thankful that you can join me in helping these people! feedingamerica.org

In turn, you will be helping yourself, your family and our entire global society.

Congress Promises Pork without Tax Man Cometh!



The front-runners to replace the so-called "king of pork," the late Robert C. Byrd, laid out decidedly different approaches Monday night to bringing the bacon home to West Virginia. Click here to read the full story on Fox News: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/10/18/senate-candidates-west-virginia-debate-earmarks-health-care-taxes/

I think the entire country has the same sentiment.  Our GDP and unemployment rate are really horrible right now.  The same old thinking will not do!  I wish I was in health care or accounting, those two industries are still moving right along!

Site of the Day: Virginia Weight Loss Center

Here is yet another site we are working with to increase traffic and revenues. As you can see the design is top notch but I am going to dig deep into the architecture now to see what we can do to make this site perform better.

Demand for Nurses and Health Care Workers Increases

Here is one of the many many projects I am working on currently. The founders of this site are aiming to help prospective health care students find the career which best suits their interests.

The current universal health care debate in Congress is shining light on the expanding scope of our health care system. Forecasts predict the market is increasing dramatically so the need for trained professionals is imperative.
