The Path to Partnership 2.0 (6/9/10) -- GovExec.com
In 2009, President Obama signed an executive order, similar to one President Clinton signed in 1993, establishing governmentwide labor-management forums and promoting partnerships between federal employee groups and agency officials. Supporters of Clinton-era labor-management partnerships say they fostered greater cooperation, recognized the importance of input from employees and their union reps, and brought faster resolution of contract disputes and grievances. Detractors argue the process sometimes excluded middle managers from important discussions, required senior managers to relinquish too much power, and failed to hold ... market research, surveys and trends

Cornell News: American attitudes toward Muslims
ITHACA, N.Y. -- In a study to determine how much the public fears terrorism, almost half of respondents polled nationally said they believe the U.S. government should -- in some way -- curtail civil liberties for Muslim Americans, according to a new survey released today (Dec. 17) by Cornell University. About 27 percent of respondents said that all Muslim Americans should be required to register their location with the federal government, and 26 percent said they think that mosques should be closely monitored by U.S. law enforcement agencies.

News from Portland's neighborhood
Enter Kelley Roy of Sassafras Green Building Development and Consulting, who plans to transform a vacant lot on Northeast Garfield Avenue into a Cartisans' Market -- similar to a gathering of food carts. "I love the idea of various businesses operating out of carts," Roy said. "It's a micro-retail option that's affordable and simple." Roy imagines the site will include a few food carts, along with those selling artisanal products (think small-batch cheeses and fresh bread), handmade clothing and art. She also wants to host bike-in movies this summer using the huge blank wall of the adjacent ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Fee disclosure is coming to your 401(k)
BOSTON (MarketWatch) -- Investors lost a battle this week, but the war isn't over. Lawmakers in the Senate decided to drop a measure that would have forced the 401(k) industry to disclose fees to participants. But that's OK, because the numbers still favor retirement savers. There are 50 million 401(k) participants who deserve to know how much they are paying for their retirement account. By contrast, there are just a few dozen lawmakers and few dozen lobbying groups that don't want 401(k) investors to know just how much things cost. Now don't get me wrong. Those who advocate against 401(k) fee disclosure ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Web Development (3), Starting Up (2), Blogging (2), Internet Marketing (1), Communication and Public Speaking (1), E-Commerce (1) This was selected as Best Answer Like it or not, Twitter and its ilk are assuming greater importance in our society. Websites and blogs are already being archived, so it makes sense that as our communication patterns shift, that which we save should be changed accordingly. If you think tweets are individually and collectively useless, imagine what a historian could do with this data years from now. Broadcast media are no longer indicative of the overall zeitgeist.
