is more commonly used worldwide than FID. The United States, and even NATO, cannot control all insurgencies, however regional powers such as Nigeria and Brazil , as well as organizations such as the African Union (AU) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), have shown an increased willingness to take some responsibility for containing turmoil in their regions. Consider, for example, the deployment of AU troops in the Darfur region of Sudan and Economic Community of West African States Monitoring Group (ECOMOG) forces in Sierra Leone . But as Darfur has also demonstrated, regional troops can mobilize only if they ...

Reborn CompUSA (from Dallas Star-Telegram) | Retail 2.0
CompUSA is back — with an Internet-linked, in-store system that gives customers instant product information, including videos, and then allows them to compare prices charged by rivals. The chain opened a new store in Euless in February and plans another in about a month in Arlington near Interstate 20 and Cooper Street. It’s been a choppy ride for the 26-year-old consumer electronics retailer. Once known as Software Warehouse, it went public in 1991, acquired Tandy Corp.’s Computer City chain 12 years ago and then took over California-based The Good Guys chain in 2003. But it struggled to make profits as fierce ... market research, surveys and trends

Unconventional Transactions Boosted Sales (washingtonpost.com)
In October 2000, a critical question confronted America Online Inc. as it sought to clinch the largest merger in U.S. history: Was it feeling the effects of an industry-wide slowdown in advertising? AOL's president at the time, Robert W. Pittman, offered a resounding answer: "I don't see it, and I don't buy it," he told Wall Street stock analysts and the media. Other AOL officials were less optimistic. While overall revenue from online ads continued to grow rapidly, internal company projections raised caution about one sector: dot-coms. Failures were accelerating among those Internet start-ups, which ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Get me out of my dead-end legal job. | Ask MetaFilter
Help me figure out to do with myself. I'm an early-30's lawyer with school loans well into the 6-digit range. I live in NYC. I hate what I do, I know what I like and am good at, but have no idea how to get from what I'm doing now to what I need to be doing. I graduated from a top tier law school with middling grades in 2001. I have little substantive law experience, because I've been working document review for most of my legal career. I currently work temp jobs as a document reviewer in NYC (working 55-75 hours per week with no benefits and no job security). The work pays well enough for me to live in NY, ...

In conventional social gatherings they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, ...
