Eat That Frog!


7 Habits of Highly Ineffective People  Lots of lessons here like:  Eat that frog!  What this means is simply to do the hardest and most important task of the day first thing in the morning. A good start in the morning lifts your spirits and creates a positive momentum for the rest of the day. That often creates a pretty productive day.

 

Time for the truth about Gardasil  As of Jan. 31, 2010, 49 unexplained deaths following Gardasil injections have been reported to the CDC.  By contrast, 52 deaths are attributed to unintended acceleration in Toyotas which triggered a $2 billion recall.  No recall for Gardasil yet, which is required for sixth-grade girls in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and many other states.

Life is a Balancing Act..

20-something job seekers hiding Facebook profiles  A recent survey found that 70 percent of employers in the U.S. have rejected an applicant because of information they uncovered online.  A desire to keep private lives private has caused many 20-something applicants to fiddle with their Facebook privacy settings. 


Twitter homepage adds 'top tweets'  Twitter's homepage got a new look Tuesday, featuring a scrolling list of "top tweets" designed to give non-members a look at what they're missing.

Good think someone can hide their Facebook info....it's amazing what some people put on there.  I would think it would compromize employment chances.  In fact I had a friend who got into some hot water over his Facebook content.  I learned a good rule which is "if you wouldn't display it on you desk at work, don't put it on Facebook either."

Cheers!

Elva:  That's how I de-stress between phone calls and e-mails.  If it wasn't for Twitter and jogging, I'd have to pick up drinking and smoking....

Kevin:  With over 7,500 followers and about as many followed, a rich list of favorites who post the latest and the best about health, seo, technology and various other topics, each day provides a smorgus board of information. 

Frank:  That's a good rule of thumb:

"if you wouldn't display it on you desk at work, don't put it on Facebook either."

Ralph:  Yup!  Me too!  I decided to put these blogs together as much for myself as for everyone else.  That way I can revisit them whenever I'm looking for information I know I have (somewhere...).
