Women in the workplace still having problems!

Good morning! I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk and i hope that
everyone is having a very enjoyable weekend.
This morning I'd like to touch on a favorite peeve of mine and that is women
in the workplace. Let's be honest here: Despite the fact that there have
been many positive changes for women in the workplace, there is very much
more that needs to be done when it comes to women having more than a decent
opportunity at being able to compete on a level playing field. A recently
published survey in the United States reveals that upon graduation, women
can expect to make an average of less than 20% in their chosen profession
and it gets even worse for them as time goes on. This survey also reveals
that even after the first three years in the workplace, the difference in
salary for women versus men is 30% less for women.
How can women be expected to be motivated to do their best at their chosen
jobs and professions when these types of stats exist? True it is that women
have come a long way in improving or closing the gap in the workplace, but
it's simply not enough. The majority of corporate boardrooms in the united
States are still being run by men. Women are still very much under
represented in the boardromms across America, and I believe that women only
make up about 5% of boardrooms today. There still exists that famous glass
ceiling for women in the workplace and there's no denying it.
Women have started to become more and more prominent in the medical field
and recent trends are showing that more and women are graduating as medical
professionals and at the same time less and less men are doing so. However,
it's not the same in the business field. As a matter of fact, the number of
female graduates from business schools across America is dropping
drastically and the experts are saying that this may have to do with women
becoming fedup and tired of being treated like second class citizens in the
boardrooms and the workplace as a whole.
I think that it's time for women to start thinking of creating their own
opportunities. The time has come for women to become more creative, more
innovative, and more imaginative. The small business and entrepreneurial
world awaits those women who are committed and serious about becoming true
business leaders. Time for women to think about showing off their skills,
grit, and it can be done. If you're not sure how to start looking, where to
look, and what to do, then please give a read to the info below.

The cheapest university tuition in North America is?

Good day everyone! I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk and I'd like to
share a news flash with you.
With rising tuition fees a constant problem for students across North
America I'd like to share something very useful with our students. The
cheapest university tuition in North America today can be found in Quebec!
Yes, Quebec! A very beautiful province in Eastern Canada.
This province also referred to as La Belle Province, boasts of several
leading universities in the world. Among these are McGill university
situated in down town Montreal, Concordia university also situated in down
town Montreal, and the Université de Monréal.
McGill University is one of the leading universities in the world. Known
for its research work in the field of medicine, it also boasts of one of the
best faculties of medicine, along with leading faculties of law, business
administration, and dentistry.
Concordia university also has excellent credentials for its faculties of
computer science and information technology, music, and fine arts.
The Université de Monréal is also known for its excellence in law, medicine,
and language.
Montreal itself is a very wonderful and very picturesque city for students.
The city continues to hum with activities that include: Rich entertainment
at night, excellent dining and cuisine, refreshing outdoor activities such
as ice skating, skiing, golfing, lawn bowling, football, plus much more.
I can tell you from personal experience that the dining and cuisine are
absolutely superb. Montreal is made up of several cultures and as a result
the cuisine does not suffer for a lack of imagination, gusto, taste, and
creation.
Montreal is home to English Canadians, French Canadians, thousands of
Europeans, and Middle Eastern and Eastern cultures. Everyone gets along and
racial harmony is the order of the day. Despite its cold weather in the
winter, the people of Montreal are extremely warm towards visitors and they
go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome.
Give it some consideration if you're looking for cheaper but excellent
tuition fees from excellent universities.

Are cell phones wiping out our bees? Plus more?

Hey there!  I'm back and I'm Alix Shadonnay at the business desk.
Today I'm going to share an article with you that I recently came across.  Great food for thought and maybe someone out there can give us their opinion.
 
Here goes.
 
Are mobile phones wiping out our bees?
Scientists claim radiation from handsets are to blame for mysterious 'colony
collapse' of bees
 
 By Geoffrey Lean and Harriet Shawcross
The Independent  (UK ) ,  15 April 2007
 
 It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some
scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food
shortages, as the world's harvests fail.
 
 They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile
phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre
mysteries ever to happen in the natural world - the abrupt disappearance of the bees that
pollinate crops. Late last week, some bee-keepers claimed that the phenomenon - which
started in the US, then spread to continental Europe - was beginning to hit Britain
as well.
 
 The theory is that radiation from mobile phones interferes with bees' navigation
systems, preventing the famously homeloving species from finding their way
back to their hives. Improbable as it may seem, there is now evidence to back this
up.
 
 Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) occurs when a hive's inhabitants suddenly
disappear, leaving only queens, eggs and a few immature workers, like so many apian
Mary Celestes.
The vanished bees are never found, but thought to die singly far from home.
The parasites, wildlife and other bees that normally raid the honey and pollen left behind
when a colony dies, refuse to go anywhere near the abandoned hives.
 
 The alarm was first sounded last autumn, but has now hit half of all
American states.
The West Coast is thought to have lost 60 per cent of its commercial bee
population, with 70 per cent missing on the East Coast.
CCD has since spread to Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy and
Greece.
And last week John Chapple, one of London's biggest bee-keepers, announced
that 23   of his 40 hives have been abruptly abandoned.
 
Other apiarists have recorded losses in Scotland, Wales and north-west England, but
the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs insisted: "There
is absolutely no evidence of CCD in the UK."
 
The implications of the spread are alarming. Most of the world's crops
depend on pollination by bees. Albert Einstein once said that if the bees disappeared,
"man would have only four years of life left".
 
 No one knows why it is happening. Theories involving mites, pesticides,
global warming and GM crops have been proposed, but all have drawbacks.
German research has long shown that bees' behaviour changes near power
lines.
Now a limited study at Landau University has found that bees refuse to
return to their hives when mobile phones are placed nearby. Dr Jochen Kuhn, who
carried it out, said this could provide a "hint" to a possible cause.
Dr George Carlo, who headed a massive study by the US government and mobile
phone industry of hazards from mobiles in the Nineties, said: "I am convinced the
possibility is real."
 
The case against handsets Evidence of dangers to people from mobile phones is increasing. But proof is
still lacking, largely because many of the biggest perils, such as cancer, take
decades to show up.
 
Most research on cancer has so far proved inconclusive. But an official
Finnish study found that people who used the phones for more than 10 years were 40 percent more likely to get a brain tumour on the same side as they held the handset.
Equally alarming, blue-chip Swedish research revealed that radiation from
mobile phones killed off brain cells, suggesting that today's teenagers could go
senile in the prime of their lives.
 
Studies in India and the US have raised the possibility that men who use
mobile phones heavily have reduced sperm counts. And, more prosaically, doctors have
identified the condition of "text thumb", a form of RSI from constant texting.
 
 Professor Sir William Stewart, who has headed two official inquiries,
warned that children under eight should not use mobiles and made a series of safety
recommendations, largely ignored by ministers.
 
 
Now for some very important information.
 
Are you tired of looking over your shoulder because you're so scared of being scammed out of your hard earned savings, your house, and your other assets?
Are you looking for ways to avoid those scams with their broken promises and get rich quick schemes?  Are you worried that one day soon someone is going to try and scam you out of your worldly possessions?  Do you know what you should be doing in order to combat those seedy scammers, identity thieves, and shady investors?
Now you can take advantage of some very potent info and daily updates plus more in order to help you stay healthy and sleep well at night.  All of this info is free for the taking and it will save you thousands of research hours, protect your savings and worldly possessions, and help you to make decisions that are safe, logical, and sound.  The experts at www.untappedwealth.com are offering you all of this at absolutely no cost because their philosophy is that if they help you then you will help others and we will become a safer and better country.  Check them out!  You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Some very important travel tips

Hi everyone!  I'm back and I'm Heather DeMarco at the business desk.
Today I'd like to give you a head start by providing you with some very important travel tips.  I know that summer is just around the corner and that many of you will be travelling either by air, by ship, or over land.  So, I hope that these are of use to you.
First, if you're planning to book a flight online:  Be ware that your flight fare does not include cancellation insurance.  If you're looking for cancellation insurance, and you should always take out flight insurance, you need to talk to a travel agent.  If you book your flight directly through the airline, then you still need to take out travel insurance.
If you're planning to visit another country for more than a month:  Then don't leave home without visitor's insurance and the appropriate medical coverage.
If you're a senior or a special needs person and you're worried about being able to find your luggage when you go to pick it up at the end of your flight:  Then when you check in be sure to ask the airline agent to place priority tags on your suitcases and bags.  This way at the end of the flight your luggage will be taken off first and be put on the floor close to the carousel.
If you're thinking of visiting the Caribbean for a summer holiday:  Be ware that the hurricane season usually starts in June and lasts till November.  The summer months are usually the best when it comes to cheap rates for hotels and air fares.
Wondering about the weight allowance for travelling to Britain or Europe?  It's 70 pounds per suitcase or bag.  To the Caribbean it's 50 pounds.
What can you take on board the plane?  Still no liquids, gels, toothpaste, and no liquid makeup.  You can only take bottled water if you've bought it after clearing security at the airport.
How many suitcases can you take?  Two suitcases for an economy traveler and three for a business class traveler.
I hope that these tips are a good start for you. 
 
Now for an important tip.
 
Are you looking for experienced multi lingual translators and writers?
Experienced professionals who can help you to write and translate, proof read and edit, and research plus more?
Are you looking for professionals who can help you to write and speak flawless English?
Having problems getting that right someone to help you proof read, edit, and research the appropriate information?
Then you need to contact the staff at www.translationpeople.com.
You can even download free useful information updated weekly and at absolutely no cost you can also keep abreast of the latest trends and headlines updated daily.

Wanted! manual writers

Greetings everyone!  I'm Jayna Sheffield at the business desk and I'm back.
This morning I'd like to put out a call for manual writers.  You're being sought by businesses of all sizes, by governments, and by practically everyone who's looking for skilled help to assist in spreading their messages. 
If you enjoy writing, if you want to make health five figure and even six figure incomes, and if you want to work from the comfort of your home, then you need to pay attention to this message.
More and more companies are striving to produce manuals that are concise, easy to understand, and easy to read.  They are seeking writers for both online and hard copy manuals, and one of the primary skills is that you can write in flawless English.  If you can also do so in another language such as Spanish, Mandarin, or Cantonese, and even in any of the more popular Indian dialects, Japanese, or French, then this will be a very valuable bonus. 
These manuals have to be written clearly but you also need to understand what you're writing about.  It may be better for you to specialize in writing for one particular topic or one specific industry.  For example, if you enjoy writing manuals for software, then stick with these types of manuals.  If you have an interest in writing instruction manuals for appliances, then stick with this.  There are several types of manuals:
Instruction manuals for appliances such as washers, dryers, dish washers, fridges, stoves, and so on.
Manuals for software and hardware.
Manuals for electronics such as VCRs, TVs, stereos, and those handheld devices.
Manuals for video games.
Manuals for big items such as cars, SUVs, trucks, and so on.
Manuals for courses.
Manuals for practically everything.
One of the most common complaints is that manuals are never written in a language that is easy to understand.  Another is that manuals are written in such a way that it's o so difficult to follow the steps outlined.  Another off shoot of manual writing that you should be looking at is writing of instructions for labels on food boxes and cans, and on those billions of pill bottles.  Lots for you to think about.
So, if you enjoy writing, can write clearly and concisely, want to work from home, and you want to make health five and six figure incomes, then please do your research and follow up on my suggestion.
 
Now for some free info.
 
They call themselves a "One Stop Writing Shop" and well they should.  There are not too many companies around at present that are able to do this and do it so well.  The experts call them unique!  They offer complete services that can help you do research, write, translate and transcribe your info into multi languages.  For absolutely free they can help you to keep abreast of important trends and news items if you're either too busy to search for them or you don't know where to find them.  They can help you to increase your revenues, reduce your costs, and expand your customer bases.  They can offer you a free online monthly magazine filled with info designed to help you keep abreast of market trends and consumer habits and articles that will point you in the right direction when it comes to finding opportunities that are explosive, lucrative, but above all safe.

Title theft on the rise

Good evening!  I'm back and I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk.
This evening I'd like to draw your attention to a very disturbing trend that is rapidly growing right here in America.  The experts have coined this one as the title theft trend and it pertains to identity thieves stealing the title of your home from right under your nose.
Try picturing this:  You buy your new home and take out a mortgage to pay for it.  You visit a financial institution, more than likely your friendly financial institution that you've been dealing with for most of your life, and the friendly folks at the financial institution do the necessary to put through the paper work to get things done.  It does not take very long to get all of this done and soon enough you are now the proud owner of your dream home.
You move in, start buying things for your new home, and you involve yourself in decorating and fixing up your new castle.  Things are going fine till one day there's a knock at your door and when you answer it you're served with an eviction notice because your home is now owned by someone you've never met.  A total stranger!
How did this happen?  How could this be true?  Why is this happening?  It is happening, it has happened, and now you suddenly find yourself being evicted from your own home.
What has actually happened is that an identity thief has found a way to steal the title of your home away from you in the still of the night and they've done it with consummate ease.  Somehow, they managed to get ahold of either a single   piece or pieces of your identification, managed to discover that you own a home, and they have managed to change the title of your home removing your name from the title of your own home and inserting either their own name or the name of someone else.  Now you find yourself in real hot water.
You now have to seek the help of your financial institution, the one from which you obtained your mortgage and you have to work very hard to retrieve the title to your own home.  If you're lucky your financial institution will help you, but what we're finding is that most institutions are not too willing to help.  What to do?
In order to deal with this situation and to avoid not getting into such a dilemma, you need to take out title theft insurance and you need to do so before you buy your next home.  Those who have owned their homes for more than five years or more may be safe but those of you who have bought homes within the last five years are not so safe.
Please, pay attention to this picture.  Title theft is growing at an alarming rate and it's up to you to take the necessary measures to combat it.
 
Now for some vital information.
 
Are you looking for skilled and experienced translators/writers/researchers to help you craft your articles, blogs, business letters, emails, faxes, newsletters, and proposals in multi languages? 
Are you seeking skilled and experienced language coaches to help you learn the English language more quickly and efficiently?

The Internet to be revamped?

Good day everyone!  I'm back and I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk.
I know, you're probably already beginning to snicker at me but this news item is for real and it has been hitting the news wires for the past few days.  It seems that the original developers of the Internet are seriously contemplating revamping the Internet.  You see, when the Internet was first developed way back in 1969, the original intent for its existence was to facilitate the free exchange of information among and between universities.  The original idea was for researchers, professors, and students to exchange information among themselves freely and without any inhibition.
At that time, it was thought that trust could be used to ensure that information would be authentic, accurate, and timely.  The original developers of the Internet strongly felt that their brain child could be used to foster rapid creation and development of ideas, breakthroughs could be more easily accomplished, and the sharing of information could be used as a means to keep universities in touch with each other.  This concept did work for a short time, but as things stand today the original dimensions of the Internet can no longer serve this purpose plus keep up with the overwhelming demand for information.
With the advent of hackers, cyber pirates, identity thieves, and e commerce, the Internet has now become a market place of practically hundreds of millions of businesses and individuals.  What we're seeing today is a picture of:
Individuals using the Internet to retrieve information, communicate with each other, and do business with companies of all sizes.
Companies of all sizes using the Internet to carry out e commerce.
Governments using the Internet to share and spread information, and to carry out their business.
Universities using the Internet to offer courses, share information, and do business.
Identity thieves using the Internet to reach havoc with both businesses and individuals.
Cyber pirates using the Internet to do the same.
The developers of the Internet feel strongly that they can revamp the Internet so that it becomes even more powerful.  Faster, more secure, and more in tune with the demands of the day.  More able to accommodate e commerce, more fool proof against hackers and identity thieves, and more able to meet the needs of everyone.
It would be interesting to follow this story as it develops because if it indeed comes to pass, then the experts strongly believe that there may soon be a tsunami like demand for designers, developers, and programmers to help with this massive project.  Keep your eye on this development.
 
Now for some useful info.
Looking for ideas and opportunities to crack the over 50s market?  The baby boomer market?  The seniors market?  Other niche markets?
Are you seeking opportunities in markets that are explosive, lucrative, but above all safe?
Are you having difficulty keeping abreast of important trends and news items because you're either too busy or don't know where to look?
