Good notes on the fact that this isn't an actual MBA; however, with the time commitments and study time an MBA takes, you might want to get your "unofficial" MBA, and then pay the $$ to get the real one with the confidence that you can basically skate through it because its not new knowledge. Of course every program… » 8/29/14 7:14am Friday 7:14am

I converted to digital years ago, and the only thing that should hold you in paper books is the irrational fear that we all will all get used to it, won't print books, and there will be some apocalypse and books will be lost forever. Thats plain stupid, because if that happens, you will have a lot more to worry about… » 8/21/14 2:17pm 8/21/14 2:17pm

I am a contract consultant, so I do things a little differently than most people; however, I employ a system that a lot of people could benefit from. As a contract consultant, I am looking for work every 18-24 months. That being said. Once I procure a job, I don't close my online profiles or say I am not looking on… » 8/20/14 9:30am 8/20/14 9:30am

I just had a garage sale this weekend and it was more a matter of the fact that I planned on tagging everything but didn't get to it in time. I did a lot better by not tagging. you won't be disappointed by everything selling for less than you wanted if you don't set the price in advance. Here are a few things to watch… » 8/18/14 8:19am 8/18/14 8:19am

I have to point to the double standard that she is the longest incarcerated woman. Yes, on average men are more violent than women, nobody is disputing that; however, that doesn't mean women are more innocent than men when it comes to straight-up murder. There are thousands of guys that have been in prison for doing… » 8/05/14 12:03pm 8/05/14 12:03pm

Do yourself a favor, if you are offered an interview where you are given a time to show up, and upon arrival, you are sitting in a room with 15 people who are in suits holding their resumes, only to be called into a room with the other 15 people, walk out of it. There are no jobs that have cattle-call interviews you… » 7/28/14 7:31am 7/28/14 7:31am

Books and magazines are the worst. Once I converted all that to digital and I no longer felt the need for a bookcase of leather-bound early editions in order to make myself look sophisticated, it created a lot of free space. Another great way to get rid of clutter is to enact a policy of opening all your mail,… » 7/28/14 7:18am 7/28/14 7:18am

Or, you could fork over $20-50 a year more and make it the absolute best cloud drive you ever used. I have every email I have ever sent or received for 16 years in gmail.....with attachments. Yes, I imported psd files from outlook galore. I might have forgotten to back things up at times in my life; however, if I know… » 7/24/14 10:47pm 7/24/14 10:47pm

Another great trick is to use Shazam to grab a song you hear audibly, and identify it. Now with Shazam there is a feature to take that discovered song and add immediately to a Spotify Playlist. Takes all the manual effort out of discovering new music. » 6/23/14 8:27am 6/23/14 8:27am

Being a resident of the area, this kind of thing happens all the time. Yes there is Chicago politics and the graft in Louisiana is bad, but the flat out incompetence of anyone that works for the City of Dallas is an ongoing thing that has been going on since before the Kennedy debacle. Add in the ass-clown of a… » 6/19/14 2:03pm 6/19/14 2:03pm

The thing I liked about Louie is that it was a show about the dichotomy of being a painfully mal-adjusted introvert, who had to spend a lot of time pretending to be an extrovert. There are a lot of people who live like that. I can only assume that all of them tell Louis CK that this speaks to them on a regular basis… » 6/17/14 5:45pm 6/17/14 5:45pm

I sold a car on Craigslist and did a title transfer; however, I didn't collect my old plates. About a week later the car was used in a crime, and the police came calling. It all got worked out, but it was a lot of time and effort that was unnecessary. Any time you change cars, treat your plates like a valued commodity. » 6/03/14 1:41pm 6/03/14 1:41pm

Either the government is the most all-encompassing, powerful, efficient thing on the planet. Or its the most inefficient, money-wasting, not to be trusted because of incompetence thing on the planet. But its not both. It can't be both. How do you think an organization that can't master Health-care websites, simple… » 5/27/14 3:30pm 5/27/14 3:30pm

I switched to mac, which sports a 256GB SSD. Coming from a Laptop with a 2TB drive. So I kind of had to embrace online drive space. The truth is that all physical drives eventually fail, and data is lost. Online drives from major carriers don't. » 5/22/14 10:07pm 5/22/14 10:07pm

In my small private high school (400 students) 2 different guys in 2 different years set state track and field and football rushing records, only to be found out as guys in their mid 20's who were in juvenile prison for their High School Years, and wanted to play college sports. Then the UIL investigated and found… » 5/16/14 10:56am 5/16/14 10:56am

Being frightened of this is as pointless as thinking you can predict it. Your body is flesh and bone, and one of a million small scenarios could fling an object to your person, puncturing and killing you, like a squirrel running across the road. If you dwell on it you won't accomplish anything. Someday, everyone will… » 4/24/14 1:10am 4/24/14 1:10am
