Stock Market 101

Yesterday while at a business luncheon, I sat at a table with a number of financial analysts and the discussion was quite interesting. The speaker yesterday was Dr. Sean Snaith of UCF's Institute for Economic Competitiveness. If you don't know who he is, he is a nationally recognized forecaster, researcher and professor of economic developement. Much of the conversation at our table was about the workings of the stock market as well as predictions on when things might turn around. One thing that that was discussed quite alot was the effect that startups and IPO's have on the market. I recently heard about Liquid Scenarios which is a program that allows any user to open a licensed file of information of historical data as well as projections. Imagine seeing into the future of IPOs, with a simple interactive program that allows you to comment back and forth with a the use of a Facebook/Twitter application. With a Liquid Scenarios Viewer file all a founder, investor or other party has to do is click install, activate a license and then use “Back” and “Forward” buttons. This information allows the user to see deeper into an IPO or other transaction in ways even the IPO Company’s investment bankers or founding investors couldn’t do without spending tens of thousands of dollars.

Pretty cool, huh?

Well, if you want to know more I strongly urge you to check out Liquid Scenario Viewer. Hey, you never know, you might actually learn something.

Get paid to upload your resume

What if you could get paid to upload your resume and then get paid even more when employers view it? Well, it is possible to do this by posting a resume on Resumark.com. This website will not only pay you for your resume and for your reviews, but they will also pay you for referrals. There is currently a contest going on where you can win $500.00 by inviting 100 friends that will generate a legitimate registration.

Resumark pays the owner of the resume $1 and makes donations to a school or to a charity of their choice. By doing this they can attract many more employees – even those who are not currently in the job market.

They have recently been featured on Forbes, CNBC, The Usa Today and many more reputable news sites.

Blinds on a budget

I have to replace my blinds in my living room because they have never worked right since I moved in and I was trying to put them down one night and the bottom piece broke in two. I can barely shut them at all now, so I've just decided to get some new ones. I'm thinking a nice faux wood might be the best way for me to go. Unfortunately, I have to get custom blinds because the ones in the stores don't come in my size. I need a 52x52. What do you think, what would you get? A nice faux wood or a vertical blind?

Some pics of Makenzee

Several months ago, I posted that Makenzee had been really sick due to what the vet believed to be early kidney disease. He prescribed a prescription diet food for him and he's been eating it now for about 6 months. As you can see, he is now back to being healthy and expects to be treated like a king. He can't just lay on the couch, but rather has to lay on a pillow on the couch. Silly cat!
