Many companies hire top-notch talent but then fail to reap the full benefits of those star employees. Often, the culprit is faulty managerial practices. The current economic recession has provided managers with a tempting environment for acquiring “star” employees on the cheap. Consider, for example, how the recent failures of large organizations like the investment banking giant Lehman Brothers and the venerable law firm Heller Ehrman Partners have enticed competitors to go on a hiring spree, acquiring top-notch talent from those now-defunct businesses. Similar opportunistic hires occurred after the downfall of Drexel Burnham ...

Netbooks: Best Eee PC alternatives | Reviews | CNET UK
Most miniature laptops do exactly what they promise -- they're small, they let you browse the Internet and they're great for enjoying movies and music on the move. Despite this, there are several factors to consider before parting with your hard-earned cash. Firstly, you'll need to decide which operating system you prefer. Most netbooks give you a choice of Windows XP or Linux -- a free, open-source alternative.

US Equities Set Up for Earnings Driven Rally?
After months of being almost entirely focused on macroeconomic concerns -- foreign and domestic -- US equity market participants will be concentrating most of their attention on earnings in the next few weeks. This sets up a potentially interesting scenario. A focus on earnings, particularly in the context of very depressed overall sentiment driven by macro factors, could catalyze a major relief rally over the course of the next 10-20 trading sessions. As I see it, two major ingredients could conspire to drive a major relief rally over this period. First, I wouldn't expect any new data to emerge in the next few weeks ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I've bin told that People have intelligence, but I seriously doubt our wisedom to use it. First, we cut down trees, and for some odd reason are too foolish to see that we need those to breath. Ok, so we can still breath if we cut those trees down and plant more, let the cycle progress as long as we never upset the balance. Ok fair enough. This entire statement shows your lack of understanding of the environment you seem to champion. Approximately 90% of our air comes from UNDERWATER PLANTLIFE, not land-based trees.
