Venture Capital Internship - How To Grow Your Business

venture capital internship

Summer break is a great time for college students to brush up on their skills and make some tuition or extra spending money in the process. Whether you plan to return home for the summer or stay at your new location, a great summer job is within your grasp.

Here are some great summer job ideas for student who need practice in the real world and decent cash to survive the expense of college:

Business-Related Internships
One of the best ways to secure a job after graduation is to experiment with an internship in your related field. Internships can be paid positions and will give you excellent insight into the reality of your chose field. If you are able to prove yourself during the summer internship, you increase the likelihood you?ll have an in with a good company and a good network of people after graduation.

Food Service
Working as a waiter/waitress can bring is some great tip money as well as the opportunity to network with a ton of different kind of people. Choose a restaurant in a good location, like the beach, where tourists are likely to bring in consistent crowds and good tips. Fast food is not as lucrative but it may be steady work throughout the summer months. Another good option in food service is to contract with a catering company that pays well. You?ll likely get to work a flexible schedule and get to mingle at exclusive parties.

During the summer months, you likely can snag a retail job where you can take advantage of discounts on merchandise. A clothing store, electronics store, or other relevant locations that sell things you can use for college and in your daily life. It also gives you experience in sales that you can use on a resume after college. It also helps you brush up on your people skills.

Adventure Work
If you are more into the adventure side of things, there are resorts and cruises across the country that actively seek out college students to work during their busy season. Resort work offers many opportunities, including food service, lifeguarding, sales and marketing, hosting, tour guides, adventure guides, cruise ships, and entertainment. Many students earn the opportunity to keep the same job each summer where they can learn, earn, and have fun during their break from school.

Camp Counselors
Like resorts, summer camps actively hire college kids to work at the various camps for kids. If you plan to work with children as a career, counselor jobs are good resume material. You likely get fa good pay rate, free room and board and get to spend your summer months outdoors, mentoring the young campers.

Amusement Parks
College kids can have a blast each summer by finding a job at an amusement park. From smaller, local places to the large-scale, nationally known companies, amusement parks draw crowds all summer and are perfect for a college student. There are a lot of job types available within a park that a student can learn from and add to their resume.

Entrepreneur Ideas
There are many successful entrepreneurs who are rich and famous due to their novel ideas during college. These entrepreneurs made a decision to start their own business during college and many have never looked back. Capitalize on your own skills and experience and turn it into a profitable business venture. College is the best time to experiment. Start a landscaping company, design websites, invent a cool new product, hire yourself out as a mover. There are endless ideas that can bring you a steady paycheck and plenty of opportunity to take it to the next level.

As a college student, you may be reliant on your parents to keep you in school and in food but earning money for yourself does not have to be boring or non-lucrative. Consider what it is you want to do in your career and brainstorm ideas that will benefit your resume later in life.

Census: Fewer Tenn. kids living in married homes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Newly released Census data finds that fewer Tennessee children live in homes with married parents and more children are living with a single parent or with a grandparent compared to a decade ago.

According to the census data released this month, 58 percent of children lived in a married family household in Tennessee in 2010, which includes remarried parents and stepfamilies. That's down from 64 percent in 2000.

The number of children living with single parents has increased from 25 percent in 2000 to 28 percent in 2010.

Grandparents are also more likely to take care of their grandchildren. About 9.4 percent of all Tennessee children lived with a grandparent in 2010, compared to 7.3 percent in 2000.

Amarathia: A Haven Amidst the Horde

(post co-written by Script, Tiko and Zephyr)

"Aside from them, essentially, we found a great deal of very little. The city's a ghost town. There's no way that they've got a proper settlement going on there, I doubt there's more than another dozen of them on top of those we saw. Whatever supplies they have, that's what they're living on. There's nothing there to grow anything new, no livestock, nothing."

Ciela leaned forwards onto her knees, sat on the log that was serving as a makeshift bench around the smoldering embers that were the largest campfire it was safe to have lit - any more light and they risked attracting unwanted attention. The cover of the thicket was already sparse enough, without glowing flames drawing the creatures that infested the plains like moths. "But whoever they are, they at least know what they're doing when it comes to combat. They're an odd mix of men and women, different ages ... nobody had the look of a 'civillian', though. They're warriors, of a sort, all of them."

?But how is that possible? Who are they? Where did they come from?? Brent asked as he poked at the burning embers with the end of his sword. They were questions he knew Ciela couldn't answer and with a scowl he stood up and sheathed his weapon. ?Well, whoever they are, I don't like this place, it's too open. We should double the watch tonight,? he said in the effort to address more practical concerns that the soldier could wrap his head around easier. At mention of this, a groan was heard from amidst the party. "Void take me now..." Niv muttered to himself, a scowl etched heavily into his face.

A few paces away from the hub that the firepit formed, a chuckle came from another of the party. "But that's the key, isn't it Brent?" Emma mused, "It's not possible. At least, not within the parameters that we're thinking."

The blood mage turned, tapping her staff on the ground with a click of her tongue. "So we have around fifteen unknowns squatting in an abandoned city. Far too few for a settlement, far too organised and skilled for scavengers, and no signs of anywhere nearby they could've come from."

Emma glanced around, "But look at us. Fifteen of us, out in the middle of nowhere. We're obviously not local. Maybe they aren't either? Maybe they're on their own expedition from wherever they're from, maybe some settlement we don't know about."

?Another scouting party?? Ruan asked, as he mulled the idea over in his head.

Niv shifted his weight, lifting a finger to scratch his chin in thought. "What Emma says does seem to make sense. The likelihood of another scouting party being here may be small, but given the circumstances, it is the most likely." He stared at the group for a moment, noticing many of the members had their eyebrows cocked at him. It took him a few seconds to realize why they were all looking at him so; when in The Light's name was he ever helpful? He cocked an eybrow at them all, his previous scowl reappearing. "What, am I not allowed to be helpful'r somethin'?" He grumbled, hunching his shoulders in agitation. His words were accompanied by the snorted chuckling of Brent in the background.

"It is less that you are not allowed, elf," Talos said from where he sat, his hood up as ever, casting shadow over his unnatural eyes, "More that you seldom take advantage of the allowance. We are surprised."

An eye roll so pointed it was almost audible came from the blonde elven girl who was toying with a small gemmed bracelet by the fire. "Surprised is one word for it," Erina murmured, "Wary, maybe. For once we are in agreement, mage."

Niv shot them both a glance. "Yeah, well don't expect it to happen again."

Ciela gave Niv a glare of her own, "You're on this expedition to use your skills constructively, Niv. If you don't intend to, then I'll happily leave you to find your own way home. Remember that."

"Correction, dear girl." The half-elf said brightly, his mood lightening at the chance to agitate another. "I am here to get paid. Whether or not I use my skills constructively's all dependant on the situations we face." He finished, a rather snide smile upon his visage.

The ranger's eyes narrowed, and the half-fae opened her mouth to deliver a harsh retort, but a sharp cough came from the blood mage to the side of the camp.

Emma sauntered casually over to where Niv sat, leaning down and placing a 'friendly' hand on the half-elf's shoulder. "Here to get paid, sure." she said, "But, ya know. Hard to get paid when you're in the stomach of about three dozen voidlings. Might not want to piss off the people who'll be preventing that. Just a word of advice."

She paused, leaning back and grinning down at him, "And, on top of that -- I am a blood mage, you don't know when I might go crazy and kill someone. Most likely you. I mean, you're closest."

At this, Niv's mouth twitched. The smile remained, but there was an undertone of fear only slightly apparent now. "Indeed. Though I'm sure you wouldn't allow that to happen. You need me too much." He said, ever so slightly scooting away from her. "I'll keep that in mind, though."

Ciela scowled, "I'm sure we could manage..." she murmured, shaking her head. At this, Niv shot her a smirk. "How sure, exactly? I could always quit, you know. People are dying for my services..."

"Shut your mouth, elf." The harsh words from the far side of the camp came from the imposing black-clad figure of Shana, the ex-mercenary captain, "Or you'll be the one dying for your services. Don't think I haven't considered it already in this journey. You're only an asset as long as you make yourself one. After that, you're a liability, and liabilities get left for the beasts." Instantly, Niv's face went blank. Shana was one of the few people in the party he actually feared.

Coughing loudly, a blonde robed woman frowned. "I think we need to take a deep breath and remember who the enemy is here. As much as we might have ... differing opinions, we're all allies." Nihm sighed, "It's bickering like this that got Sara killed back in the mountains. I hope we haven't all conveniently forgotten that."

At that moment, as if on cue, a cry from one of their watchers at the edge of the thicket carried to the group. "Swarm!"

The argument was abandoned as the group swept into motion, drilled and practised motions bringing them to attention, their weapons taken up and their eyes alert. The elf man from the edge of the thicket broke into the small clearing at a dash.

Seconds later, what looked like a tidal wave of black followed.

"Shit..." Niv said baffledly. "Well, have fun. I'll let you all handle this." He began muttering some spell or other, and within a second, completely vanished from view.

"Hold together! Take formation!" Ciela barked, taking swift command. "Meet the charge!"

An experienced unit, the (majority of) the scouting party were already taking up positions - melee fighters forming a solid line and ranged fighters readying their attacks. Aren, the watcher, dashed past the line, and they loosed.

Arrows and fire flew into the voidlings in a volley, striking down the front lines of the swarm quickly. But there was to be no holding back the swarm from a distance, and it didn't take long for the distance to be closed, and they met the front line with a clatter of weapons. Brent swung his claymore through the air in a wide cleave to meet the swarm as it descended upon them, but though the attack released a shockwave that felled them by the dozens, for each one dropped, dozens more took their place. ?There's too many!? he bellowed.

"He's right," Ciela called from where she launched her arrows at the horde, "This camp is lost! Fall back now, before we take casualties!"

Shana growled as she thrust her curved sword through the throat of a voidling, kicking it backwards and off of the weapon. "Fall back to where, ranger? We're on open plainlands!"

"The only place on the bloody plainlands that doesn't have voidlings in it," Emma snapped, "The city!"

There was no time for argument, and most were too occupied with staying alive to comment, and so agreement was conveyed by lack of protest. "Go!" Emma yelled, "Me and hoodie here will hold them off for a few moments so we can actually disengage."

Talos gave Emma a sidelong glance at the new nickname, but nodded his head. Ciela scowled, but she too nodded. "Alright, disengage! Fall back! Head for the city, don't stop unless we have no choice!"

As the others broke off and fled, the voidlings made to cut them down as their backs turned, but a flash of light burst outwards from Talos' position near the back. A globe of energy swept outwards from his form, washing harmlessly over the party but impacting with force as it met the voidlings. The creatures were forced backwards by the expanding shield, tossed into one another and piled up against it.

Emma planted her staff in the ground with a thud, grabbing a knife from her belt with narrowed eyes. The blood mage glared daggers at the swarm for a few moments, before with a swift and clean movement she drew the knife downwards across her wrist.

The blood that sprayed outwards from the wound flashed with energy, glittering in the air before it spun up to gather around Emma's arm. Her eyes were filled with crimson light, and she took up her staff once again. Energy gathered in the weapon at a speed that made the hair on the blood mage's arm stand up with static, before gathering at its tip.

For once not deigning to come up with a witty one liner to accompany her strike, Emma swung the staff forwards and released the magic. A cannon-like blast of crimson energy shot from the weapon and slammed into the horde with a shockwave of force, throwing them backwards and scattering them like bowling pins.

Drawing her arms backwards, Emma directed her glare at some of the voidlings still on their feet, an insidious light pouring from her already glowing eyes. A single pulse broke from the light, expanding outwards for a moment before fading - only to be mirrored by similar pulses from the eyes of each of the voidlings targeted.

"Come on, hoodie. Time to go." Emma called, as the group of voidlings gathered their bearings... before letting out enraged cries and tearing viciously into the other demonic creatures around them without hesitation. Weak willed creeps were always easy to subvert, Emma noted with satisfaction.

Talos gave Emma a dark stare that made his disapproval clear, but nodded with grudging respect. The two turned and ran after the main group - the wound on Emma's wrist smoothly sealing - making quick ground as Talos tore a chunk of earth from below them to carry them quickly over the plains.

David Beckham Could Miss Entire MLS Soccer Season | Articles ...

When David Beckham suffered a torn Achilles? tendon in a Italian league game in mid-March, doctors gave him an outside chance of returning in time for the World Cup or at the very least part of the MLS season. Unfortunately, it doesn?t look like either of these favorable scenarios will transpire. In a recent statement Beckham broke the news that his recovery is behind schedule and he won?t be able to resume playing soccer until November at the earliest.

This timetable does leave open the possibility that he could return to action should the Los Angeles Galaxy make the MLS playoffs. As far as a potential return to England?s national team the first realistic opportunity for Beckham to play would be in a European Championship qualifier against Wales in March 2011. He?s been assured that he?s welcome back at AC Milan in Italy?s Serie A league whenever he?s back in playing shape.

Beckham, who is still using crutches to get around, explained his recovery process:

?I won?t be running for another three months, so I will be playing again in, probably, November.?

?My mentality is to kind of push it and get moving and running and soon as possible. But it?s an injury that has to take time to heal. It?s frustrating. It?s obviously disappointing because I?ve been working for the last two years to get into the English squad [for the World Cup].?

?At the moment, it?s just getting the motion back into the ankle, the tendon, because it?s still repairing. I?m trying to get mobilization back into the ankle.?

Beckham also discussed the injury itself:

?It was like being hit by a hockey puck. I thought someone was behind me and kicked me. Obviously no one was there and I saw my foot hanging and then I felt down there and there was a hole.?

The former England captain would have likely served in a reserve capacity with the World Cup squad, though his Howitzer-like free kicks remain one of the most feared offensive weapons in the sport. Even without Beckham in the lineup soccer betting enthusiasts are bullish on England?s prospects this summer. The ?Three Lions? are currently the third favorite in World Cup future betting behind Brazil and Spain.

Easy Methods To Reduce Pain Due To ... - Fitness And Health Home

Monday, August 29th, 2011 at 8:18 am ?

Plenty of considerations are traced to just why somebody suffer from receding gum area. Typically, it takes place obviously with time. It may also occur to individuals having several medications or even illegal drugs, those starting radiation treatment, and also women who are currently pregnant. Those who do not possess frequent consultations on their dental surgery and observe good oral cleaning practices tend to be as well vulnerable to the disorder. They should utilize the right steps in nurturing their teeth and gum line and also know how to stop receding gums.


Periodontal depression will be with two types. The primary sort is observed in men and women that have vulnerable and lean gum cells. Eventhough they will scrub its teeth and consult their own dentist frequently, the case is based on a structure getting very lean and you could actually find the bottom level root base of the teeth. Gum recession is usually microbe and even due to contamination. This is definitely accessible if you experience swelling within the gum line.

Once the sickness may be in early stages, it may be detected readily. It is actually considered that receding gums grow back along with ideal care along with recommendations through your dental surgery. The condition is also cared for straight in your house. Yet, if you ignore the condition, a health care might be prolonged and even more costly. When symptoms are usually recognized, it should be taken care of at the earliest opportunity.

Double-amputee Pistorius reaches 400 semifinals (AP)

DAEGU, South Korea ? With a strong finishing kick on his carbon-fiber blades, double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius swept past several able-bodied runners in the 400 meters Sunday to qualify for the semifinals at the world championships.

It also was another historic breakthrough for Paralympic athletes.

Pistorius recovered from his traditional slow start to pounce with power through the final bend and finishing straight to take third place in the final heat of the event and qualify for the next round. His time of 45.39 seconds was the 14th best of all competitors.

"I have worked extremely hard to be here," Pistorius said. "And it has been phenomenal to run."

Despite his fame, the South African was never destined to win his heat ? just getting through had been a cliffhanger in itself.

Running in the tough outside lane, he had to count on a big move in the second half of the race and with 50 meters to go, five runners were still in it for the four automatic semifinal places.

Pistorius, though, dipped at the tape for his third-place finish behind Bahamian winner Chris Brown.

"It has been a lot of pressure in the race, and there is a lot of work for tomorrow," Pistorius said about the semifinals Monday

He immediately slapped hands with runner-up Martyn Rooney, embraced several others and then formally bowed to the South Korean crowd of about 10,000 for their cheers and support.

"He ran the time to get here," said Olympic champion LaShawn Merritt, who also advanced. "A great heart. I wish all the best to him."

Others suddenly see him as the direct rival he has become and the competitive threat he has become.

"With him being inside the race, automatically everybody steps up," Brown said. "No one wants to get beat by him. Me, definitely, I don't want to get beat by him. Everybody is going to come out and run their A-plus game."

The International Association of Athletics Federations had banned the multiple Paralympic gold medalist from able-bodied competition, saying the blades he wears gave him an unfair advantage.

But in 2008, Pistorius was cleared to compete by the Court of Arbitration for Sport ? even though he failed to qualify for that year's Beijing Olympics and the 2009 worlds in Berlin. He did win three gold medals at the Beijing Paralympic Games.

This year, he qualified for the worlds on his last attempt and followed up with an inspiring race in Daegu.

Before Pistorius' thrilling run, Liu Xiang, Dayron Robles and David Oliver made sure the most compelling final was still on track when all three qualified for the semifinals of the 110 hurdles.

Liu proved he is finally getting back to the form which earned the 2004 Olympic and 2007 world titles by having plenty of time to ease up at the line and still win his heat. Oliver kept his powerful shoulders in perfect balance over the hurdles as he dashed through a winner, too.

Only the easygoing Olympic champion from Cuba, who flaunted his form with his graceful strides over the 10 hurdles, let American rival Aries Merritt nip him at the line.

"Everybody is looking good," Robles said. "It's very good for the final."

The final is set for Sunday and should bring the three fastest performers in history together for one of the highlights of the nine-day championships.

"It will take 13 seconds or better to win," Liu said through a translator.

Robles holds the world record at 12.87 seconds, with Liu's best time just 0.01 seconds behind. Oliver trails by another 0.01, highlighting how tight the race could be.

Defending champion Ryan Brathwaite failed to make the semifinals.

In the first of six finals of the day, Olympic and defending world champion Valeriy Borchin led a 1-2 Russian finish in the 20-kilometer walk with a time of 1:19:56. Vladimir Kanaykin took silver, 31 seconds behind, and Luis Fernando Lopez of Colombia was third.

"After 15 kilometers, I was just going into my finish speed and not thinking about anything," Borchin said. "I was not looking at anyone, just running my race. It ended well."

Later Sunday, Usain Bolt will highlight the 100 semifinals and likely the final, too, considering how dominating the Jamaican was in Saturday's heats.

Kenenisa Bekele will be looking for his fifth straight 10,000 title, which would push him past the mark he now shares with Ethiopian great Haile Gebrselassie. Since he has not run for the better part of two seasons because of injury, victory is anything but assured.

The men's decathlon also reaches its climax, with American teammates Trey Hardee and Ashton Eaton at the top of the standings after seven of 10 events.

The women's long jump and discus throw are the other finals Sunday.

Verlander deserves an MVP look

It wasn?t his prettiest outing, but Tigers ace Justin Verlander became the first major league pitcher of the 2011 baseball season to reach the 20-win plateau in Saturday afternoon?s 6-4 victory over the Twins.

Verlander yielded eight hits and four runs, and at one point allowed back-to-back homers to light-hitting Twins reserves Luke Hughes and Jason Repko, but he eventually settled in. The 28-year-old right-hander finished the start with six strikeouts and three walks, throwing 76 of his 120 pitches for strikes.

Verlander is the first pitcher to win 20 games before the end of August since Curt Schilling accomplished the feat for the Diamondbacks in 2002. Verlander is now sporting a 20-5 record, 2.38 ERA and 0.90 WHIP through 29 starts this season. He also has 218 strikeouts in 215 2/3 innings, and has walked just 48 batters.

While Angels ace Jered Weaver deserves consideration, Verlander is the clear favorite for the American League Cy Young Award with around five weeks to go. Verlander could also draw some MVP consideration.

Seven dead as Irene edges into Virginia

Top developments:
? Two killed in Virginia, including 11-year-old boy
? Power failures affect more than 500,000 in Virginia
? Huge waves kill surfer in Florida
? Four dead in North Carolina, one missing
? Pentagon orders troops to stand by to assist
? At least 2.5 million under evacuation orders, 300,000 in NYC
? More than 8,000 flights canceled through Monday

Seven people, including two children and a surfer, were dead and the East Coast was a solid wall of red hurricane warnings Saturday as Hurricane Irene began lashing the Virginia coast on its way to what forecasters and authorities warned could be a catastrophic run north.

Neighbors said a woman came running out screaming, "Where's my baby?!" after high winds knocked a tree into an apartment complex Saturday afternoon in Newport News, Va. Rescue crews searched for several hours before finding the boy's body.

Later in the afternoon, a tree fell on a car in Brunswick County, killing an occupant, Virginia State Police Sgt. Michelle Anaya told the News & Messenger of Northern Virginia.

Police in Goldsboro, N.C., said a child died in a wreck after the car the child was in crashed at an intersection where Irene had knocked out power to the traffic lights. Several other people were taken to a hospital after the crash around 4 p.m. ET, Police Capt. Chad Calloway told The Associated Press.

Three other people were confirmed dead in North Carolina: one who died in a vehicle crash in Pitt County, a man who died after a branch fell on him in Nash County, and a man who died of a heart attack Thursday in Onslow County as he was trying to board up his home.

In Florida, the Volusia County Beach Patrol confirmed that a surfer was killed Saturday when he was knocked off his board at New Smyrna Beach, where surfers flocked to take advantage of 10-foot waves kicked up in the wake of Irene.

"It appears he went over a wave and might have gone head first into the ground," Tammy Marris, a spokeswoman for the agency, told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue said people should not be fooled by Irene's rating as a Category One storm, the lowest on the scale.

"She may be a One, but she's a mean One," Perdue said in an interview on MSNBC-TV.

Half a million without power in Virginia
U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano called Irene a "large and dangerous'' storm and urged residents to take it seriously. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, meanwhile, ordered 6,500 active-duty troops to prepare for orders to help with relief assistance.

Interactive: PhotoBlog: Eye of the storm (on this page)

At 5 p.m. ET, the eye was about 50 miles south-southeast of Norfolk, Va., and Irene's high-speed outer wall was already well into the state. With the worst danger past, hurricane warnings were canceled south of Cape Fear, N.C., near where Irene made landfall Saturday morning.

At least 506,000 customers were without power in Virginia, whose governor, Bob McDonnell warned Saturday morning that the next 12 hours "are going to be very, very bad for Virginians," with the hardest-hit areas expected to be Norfolk and Williamsburg.

Tropical storm conditions had already spread farther north into Washington, Maryland and Delaware. With Virginia, they make up the so-called DelMarVa peninsula, where tornadoes are often a significant secondary threat from hurricanes. A tornado that ripped through the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach destroyed five homes and damaged several others.

"We're feeling the impacts now, but the worst is still to come," McDonnell told MSNBC-TV as rain bands started lashing the state. He said officials were especially concerned about coastal flooding.

Sandbags were no longer available anywhere in the nation's capital ahead of Irene's expected arrival in the Washington region about 6 p.m. ET.

Forecasters warned that major flooding was likely at the Maryland and Delaware beaches, which were expected to be swamped with a 4- to 8-foot storm surge that they said could cause significant beach erosion.

On Maryland's beaches, Irene was expected to arrive just about at high tide between 8 and 9 p.m. ET. NBC's Tom Costello reported from Ocean City that waves driven by sustained 30-mph winds were already peaking at 19 feet.

Eddie Hopkins, a spokesman for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, agreed that "our concern is for the flooding that we could see out of this," telling msnbc that "with the saturated ground, we're also very much concerned about the uprooting of trees and power lines."

In Delaware, areas around the Delaware River in and around Wilmington were being evacuated because of expected floods, George Giles, director of the Wilmington Department of Emergency Management, told MSNBC TV.

Landfall at daybreak
Irene made landfall about 7:30 a.m. ET at Nags Head, N.C. Winds howled through the power lines and felled trees, rain fell in sheets and some streets were flooded at daybreak on the North Carolina coast.

Progress Energy, the local electrical utility, said about 200,000 customers throughout coastal North Carolina were without power.

Readers capture Hurricane Irene's approach

A coastal town official in North Carolina said witnesses believed a tornado spawned by Irene lifted the roof off the warehouse of a car dealership Friday night in Belhaven and damaged a mobile home, an outbuilding and trees. Six homes were reportedly damaged by the apparent tornado.

NBC News reported early Saturday that the end of the Atlantic Beach Pier collapsed into the water, and NBC station WITN-TV of Washington reported that pier at the Sheraton in Carteret County was collapsing.

High winds also blew off part of the roof of Berkeley Mall in Goldsboro, N.C., on Friday night. No one was injured, emergency management officials said.

New York preparations well under way
Irene wasn't expected to reach the densely populated Northeast Corridor until late Saturday. Well ahead of its arrival, authorities ordered unprecedented evacuations and transit shutdowns.

"Staying behind is dangerous, staying behind is foolish, and it's against the law,'' Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a media briefing Saturday at Coney Island in Brooklyn.

Coney Island is one of the areas expected to be hit hardest, along with Staten Island and the New Jersey shore, by what Weather Channel meteorologist Bryan Norcross predicted would be a "horrible storm surge" Sunday morning.

The city's subway system closed at noon ET , an unprecedented shutdown due to natural causes. As airlines canceled more than 8,000 flights, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey told NBC News that all five major regional airports would be closed at least through Sunday.

Philadelphia also made the unprecedented decision to close its SEPTA transit service with eight to 15 inches of rain expected. Philadelphia has already had record rainfall this summer, and meteorologists said it would take only two inches to trigger major floods.

All told, about 2.5 million people have been ordered to leave up and down the East Coast, more than 1 million of them from the New Jersey shore alone, Gov. Chris Christie said.

Christie said at a news briefing that he remained concerned because some residents of Atlantic City, particularly senior citizens, were refusing to leave, even though "we are most certainly going to suffer property and structural damage."

As hundreds of thousands of fled from Irene's path at the height of summer beach season, supermarkets and hardware stores were inundated with people stocking up on food, water, flashlights, batteries, generators and other supplies.

Once Irene passes through the New York region, New England remains Sunday.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said that 500 members of the Massachusetts National Guard had already been deployed to assist and that 2,000 more would be activated Saturday.

The U.S. Geological Survey issued a landslide alert for Connecticut, where Gov. Dannel Malloy warned that heavy urban flooding was possible from rain bands expected to drop more than an of rain per hour Sunday.

President Barack Obama was briefed Saturday by the Federal Emergency Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. He said the storm could be "extremely dangerous and costly" for a nation that recalls the destruction in 2005 from Hurricane Katrina, which swamped New Orleans, killed as many as 1,800 people and caused $80 billion in damage.

Tackling mysteries about carbon, possible oil formation and more deep inside Earth

ScienceDaily (Aug. 28, 2011) ? How do diamonds the size of potatoes shoot up at 40 miles per hour from their birthplace 100 miles below Earth's surface? Does a secret realm of life exist inside the Earth? Is there more oil and natural gas than anyone dreams, with oil forming not from the remains of ancient fossilized plants and animals near the surface, but naturally deep, deep down there? Can the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, be transformed into a pure solid mineral?

Those are among the mysteries being tackled in a real-life version of the science fiction classic, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, that was among the topics of a presentation in Denver at the 242nd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Russell Hemley, Ph.D., said that hundreds of scientists will work together on an international project, called the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO --, to probe the chemical element that's in the news more often than perhaps any other. That's carbon as in carbon dioxide.

"Concerns about climate change have made millions of people aware of carbon's role on the surface of the Earth, in the atmosphere and in the oceans," Hemley said. "The Deep Carbon Observatory will uncover critical information about the movement and fate of carbon hundreds and thousands of miles below Earth's surface. We call that the deep carbon cycle."

Hemley said this basic research could have practical implications in the future. Using laboratory equipment that reproduces pressures deep within the Earth, which are thousands to millions of times higher than on the surface, scientists in these labs have discovered a way to convert carbon dioxide into a rock-like material called polymeric carbon dioxide. With further refinements, scientists could enhance its stability closer to the Earth's surface.

The findings also may lead to new materials for commercial and industrial products. Hemley's laboratory, for instance, has developed a way to produce "super" diamonds, or high-quality diamonds that are bigger and better than existing ones. Natural diamonds form slowly under the high-pressure, high-temperature conditions that exist deep within the Earth, while today's synthetic diamonds form under similar conditions in the laboratory. Using a process called chemical vapor deposition, Hemley's research group made diamonds rapidly and at low pressure. The new diamonds have superior qualities, including extreme hardness, improved transparency and better electrical and temperature properties. The diamonds could lead to improved computer chips that run faster and generate less heat than existing silicon chips, Hemley said. They also show promise for use in advanced cutting-tools, more durable and heat-resistant windows for spacecraft and other applications, he noted.

The DCO project will probe the big mystery about the formation of natural diamonds, including their chemical composition and how they shoot up quickly from deep within the Earth. Scientists can't directly observe that process at present, as there's no practical way to travel down 100 miles beneath the surface of the planet. Observations are limited to laboratory simulations of this process for now, said Hemley, who is director of the Geophysical Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution of Washington in Washington, D.C. His laboratory specializes in the chemistry and physics of materials under extreme conditions. Hemley's presentation at the ACS meeting, entitled "Chemistry of Planetary Gases, Liquids, and Ices in Extreme Environments," focused on what happens to planetary material under conditions of extreme pressure and temperature, as well as other insights relevant to Earth.

Another area that the DCO will explore is energy. The extent to which hydrocarbons in the Earth form from inorganic processes deep within the Earth rather than only from the fossilized remains of plants and animals remains an important unanswered question. Exploring the nature of carbon deep within the Earth may provide clues on how and to what extent this abiotic process might contribute to energy reserves, Hemley said.

Finally, DCO research has implications in the search for other life forms on Earth and even outer space. Scientists have already identified microbes at about a mile or so deep within the Earth under high temperatures. They suspect that some forms may exist at even deeper levels.

Past studies suggest that bacteria and other life forms can't survive beyond several thousand atmospheres of pressure. But new studies by scientists in Hemley's lab show that some bacteria are capable of surviving pressures of up to 20,000 atmospheres. That supports the theory that life might exist in extreme extraterrestrial environments, Hemley noted.

Funding sources for these studies include The Carnegie Institute of Washington, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

When Mitt Romney gets frustrated with women

When Mitt Romney waged his first political campaign, for a U.S. Senate seat in?Massachusetts in 1994, his wife told the press that in 30 years together they had "never had a serious argument."

"Mitt has never once raised his voice to me,"?Ann Romney said, adding that she'd "dissolve into tears" if he ever did.

Those comments are worth keeping in mind as you watch a clip from a Mitt Romney town hall event on Thursday that some are touting as his "Chris Christie moment." In the exchange, an unidentified woman offers a lengthy critique of Romney's anti-government rhetoric while Romney stands and listens, trying to keep a smile on his face. Soon he grows frustrated, cuts her off, and demands that she ask a question, and when she tries to butt in during his reply, he silences her with a forceful, "Let me finish, Madam!":

(post continues below)?

Obviously, this does call to mind a heated exchange Christie had with a female teacher at a town hall event a while back, one of the YouTube hits that helped establish the New Jersey governor as a national GOP?star. And since the woman questioning Romney here seems to be criticizing him from a liberal perspective, this clip itself will probably help Romney's image with the right.

But what happens at the next GOP?debate if, instead of this liberal woman, it's Michele Bachmann who decides to challenge Romney, on (say) his healthcare law? And what happens if she gets under his skin just like this woman did? This one was easy for Romney, but he still seemed uncomfortable and not quite sure how to handle the situation -- lots of forced smiling, stiff language, and a tone that could be construed as condescending. Twice he called her "madam."

If anything, it reminded me of a 2002 gubernatorial debate in Massachusetts when Romney grew frustrated with his opponent, Shannon O'Brien, and called her attacks on his abortion rhetoric "unbecoming." That particular moment is at the 4:30 mark in this video:

(post continues below)

Romney's "unbecoming" line caused a stir in the race's closing stretch. O'Brien even held a press conference the next day with then-Sen. Hillary Clinton and said that "I certainly think that he wouldn't use the term 'unbecoming' if he were speaking about a male opponent." Of course, Romney had his defenders, too, and the controversy didn't cost him the election, which he won by 7 points.

But try picturing a similar exchange -- over abortion, healthcare or something else -- between Romney and Bachmann. She presses him, he gets irritated and makes a remark that sounds somewhat condescending, and she calls him on it. Given that the GOP's base likes and trusts Bachmann more than it likes and trusts Romney, it could cause a real headache for Romney.

In the two debates they've participated in so far, there's been very little interaction between Romney and Bachmann. But that figures to change. Chances are she'll end up going after him, and he'll have to engage. It'll be very interesting to hear what comes out of his mouth.

Positive Attitude

Positive attitudes are contagious to situations as well. If you arrive at a job you hate with a positive attitude, the job does not seem quite so bad. You still may not like it -but somehow your positive attitude made it improve a little. A positive attitude allows you to see things in a different light, and if you try, you can almost find something good in every situation -no matter how bad the situation may seem.

You'll be able to Fix your Relationship with Commitment and Free ...

You are here: Home / Uncategorized / You?ll be able to Fix your Relationship with Commitment and Free Marriage Advice

Creating a marriage relationship is among the most tough work you are going to do in your entire life. There is no ideal model to follow, because all partners are very different, and also the work doesn?t have a guidebook. In addition, there?s a reason that conventional wedding vows ask you to say that you take your partner for better and for worse. Each marriage will probably have high points along with some rocky places that take some more effort to get through. At times such as these, it is nice to know where you can get some free marriage advice from that will help you weather the storm.

It seems like individuals get divorced so easily today. I once heard a high school student statement, ?When I get married for the first time?? How casually we have learned to get rid of our relationships w\ithout even giving them time to develop and prosper. We?re all in it for the ?better? part, but when the ?worst? occurs, we want to decamp. We are constantly hoping for something better thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Without a permanent commitment to relationships, you are never going to create anything you?re very happy with.

You?ll find nothing realistic about thinking that a marriage will be an unending honeymoon. If either husband or wife expects that, the partnership is bound to fall. However, almost all marriages can be kept with the right assistance. I?m not referring to a marriage counselor here. Exactly what I am stating is that there?s free marriage advice available from someone that has been there and done that.

Today you are probably telling that it will never work, because you know your partner just isn?t going to go the majority of assistance. However, it won?t usually take 2 to straighten out an ailing relationship. Often only one partner can change things around for the better. You just need the right individual to help you realize what you need to do and for you to be seriously dedicated on keeping your own marriage. Give it an opportunity, and you?ll notice that getting some %can modify your life and resurrect the marriage you believed was long gone forever.Doc No.sdlkh-sdAE

Encouraging Your Office Team to Use Personal Development Plans ...

Performance reviews are part and parcel of office life. Each new hire goes through a probationary period of sorts, and after some time their boss checks on their progress and evaluates them. Depending on the type of company you work for, Human Resources may offer periodical assessment tests to check for potential in the roster, and offer training opportunities to the ones who stand out.
All of the above are company-initiated development programs. What we rarely see is an employee-initiated personal development plan, where the person analyzes his own strengths and weakness on his own volition. If you manage your own team, encourage them to independently monitor their respective progress. Point out to them the merits of coming up with their own assessment, several being:
. They know the extent of their own capabilities.
. Only they can really determine what path they want to take in their career. Tests can only tell so much about a person?s potential career match. Write down those dreams to make them official.
. The plan is private. No one else can see it. Sometimes people are too embarrassed to admit to others their areas that need improvement. You can be honest with yourself when you write your personal development plan.
. You can compare your own plan to that of the company?s. If you see any glaring gaps between your self-evaluation and the company?s, consult your manager and Human Resources. You need to know if you have missed anything when you assessed yourself. Leave no stones unturned.
. Seeing a plan in black and white is like making a contract with yourself. It reminds you that you are in that office not simply to work for your paycheck but to build an image, a career and a future. You are responsible for your own progress. Having that sense of accountability drives you to do better, especially when your personal development plan starts getting filed with marks of accomplishments.
. It shows the company that you have initiative and are serious about your career.
Make this plan visible and available so you are constantly reminded of your goals. Tack it on your board, save it in your PDA, and even save it on your home computer. Seeing it often instills a stick-to-it habit in your system and before you know it, the quest to improve becomes second nature.
Just remember to be flexible when some things don?t work according to what?s on your personal development plan. The path to progress isn?t always smooth. Keep learning, trust your instincts and welcome advise from colleagues who want to see you succeed.
