I am trying to stop looking at the news because it makes me want to SCREAM. And, I am somewhat addicted to checking the news online at least twice a day! I am so frustrated to hear about all that is happening in Washington and our economy, and how those who need the most help will be getting less. As you can guess, I could go on with my rant – but what good will it do? Does it help fix things in Washington? no.. Does it help those in need? no.. Does it help me feel better? no!
What type of paper is in there? According to one study, newspapers alone account to 15% of the total space in landfills. Despite the availability of news online and on television, newspapers still comprise the biggest trash deposit in landfills. Of course, there are other “papers” in landfills like old milk cartons, used notebooks, books, office waste (shredded documents) and more.

Our bodies are designed to fight or flee when presented with life-threatening events or creatures. We create this fight or flee response – many of us on a regular basis – with our thoughts and worries.

Cutting back on coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, etc. can definitely calm your stress reaction.
“I’m too old.” Too old to what? To do something good for yourself? To learn some simple but important skills? I believe you’re never too old to help yourself. And if you think you’re too old to show up on an attacker’s radar, think again. A quick search of xeberler articles turns up page after page of reports of women in their 80s and 90s who were raped, beaten, and killed in random acts of violence. Thankfully, I have also found several stories of women in the same age group, who fought back against their attackers and prevailed. Which group would you be in?
Both The New York Times Company and Dow Jones (DJ) went the route of buying an established online destination. I’m always skeptical of these kind of me too acquisitions. These businesses did need to go online, but they needed to do it in their own way. The acquisitions will probably work out better than I thought they would. But, I still think the real value is in the brand.
My recommendation is if you want to reach the Gen X and Gen Y home buyer, make some videos, post them on both YouTube and on Facebook, link them to your website homepage, and to your blog, then get busy making new online friends in all the right forums.
