Have Laptop, Will Travel with a Home-Based Business and a Map
Ever wondered what to give the “Person Who Has Everything”? A Gift Basket could be just the thing. Have you been from shop to shop and thought “Yes This is It” and then discounted the gift because it wasn't really what you wanted. My best friend has everything and when I say everything, “I Mean Everything”. She has either been given or purchased every conceivable gadget available in the last 5 years. She loves to shop.

Both Microsoft, Google seal deals with Twitter - Technology ...
SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter is selling the rights to mine its communications hotbed to both Internet search leader Google and Microsoft in dueling deals that underscore the growing importance of being able to show what's on people's minds at any given moment. The announcements made Wednesday within a three-hour span also represent the latest bit of gamesmanship between two of technology's fiercest — and most powerful — rivals.

US federal agents nationwide bilked by brazen Ponzi scheme
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department said he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to media reports. A rumor now popular among some federal law enforcement agents casts a bit of bitter irony over McLeod’s fate, indicating that he killed himself with a pistol given to him by the DEA to commemorate his years of service to the agency. Whether that rumor has any basis in reality is not clear, but it speaks volumes about how some law enforcers feel about what McLeod did to a number of DEA agents, as well as dozens of other former and retired federal agents. McLeod’s death came only some five days after he confessed to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How to Beat the Crowd in the Stock Market
Charles Lee's portfolio management style requires accounting for human biases to nudge prices closer to their real value. by Maria Shao By now, the fallout from the epic financial crisis is both familiar and tangible: foreclosed mortgages, failed banks, lost jobs, recession. On the less tangible side, the meltdown also shook faith in a widely accepted economic principle: Markets are efficient. Since the mid-1960s, many academics have embraced the theory that prices paid in large public markets, such as those in stocks and bonds, reflect the collective wisdom of investors acting rationally on all available ...
