2008 Pig Book - Citizens Against Government Waste:
If Washington, D.C. were to export a commodity, it would be rhetoric.  Politicians especially love to talk about fiscal responsibility.  On March 13, 2008 the Senate had an opportunity to test that rhetoric when Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) offered an amendment to impose a one-year moratorium on earmarks.  Pork beat talk as the measure failed by a vote of 29-71. In the House of Representatives, Republicans want a one-year moratorium but will not unilaterally disarm.  Democrats won’t agree because of objections from big porkers such as House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman John Murtha ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

I finished "Shift: How to Reinvent Your Business, Your Career, and Your Personal Brand" (Broadway Books, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, 208 pages, black and white photos, index, $23.00) by Peter Arnell with Steve Kettmann with a great deal of trepidation. I wanted to rush to the window and yell out like Peter Finch -- he played anchorman Howard ("I'm Mad As Hell") Beale -- in the classic 1976 flick "Network": "I'M NOT A BRAND OR A NUMBER OR A BAR CODE; I'M A REAL PERSON, A HUMAN BEING!"   It would be my Philip K.

Qwest dials back its presence
Alice Sternad was one of 400 switchboard operators in Omaha handling long-distance calls at Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. on Christmas Day in 1946. More than 25,000 calls were put through that day. THE WORLD-HERALD Published Sunday August 22, 2010 Cindy Hadsell walks up a flight of stairs in a windowless building that once was one of the primary control stations for all phone calls made in central Omaha. Opening the door into a room now holding computer equipment, Hadsell, a 40-year veteran of Northwestern Bell, U S West and now Qwest, can visualize the dozens of phone operators who once sat at switchboards here.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Google Answers: Published Works on Business Psychology
What is the role of sincerity, honesty, passion for your work, and genuine concern for your customers in the success and failure of businesses? I am interested in the general answer to this question, and also, more specifically, the role of these issues in customer service. When I say passion for your work, I do not mean passion for profit-making - I mean passion for your actual craft. As a secondary issue, what is the impact of pretended sincerity or false politeness on the relationship between a company and its customers? I am looking more for a comprehensive list of references, with information on how to access them, than ...

I'm particularly interested in introductions for non-experts to subjects like biology, physics and astronomy, but I thought that opening up the question as broadly as possible would make it most interesting to me and other readers, especially as a future reference-point. I am thinking of books like " Mathematics for the Million ", which made math accessible to a great deal of people. The Oxford Guide to Library Research by Thomas Mann is one of the most essential books for learning how to formulate a research question and then go about answering it. Slightly more advanced, but still very much intended for the layman is What ...
