Action cures fears.
Doing what’s right keeps your self conscience satisfied and builds confidence.
Capacity is a state of mind.
There is bad silence and there is good silence. When you know the difference, you know inner tranquility.

Pronto is an avid reader of the Journal of American History. He is currently enjoying “The Urbanization of the Eastern Gray Squirrel in the United States” by Etienne Benson. He can’t believe that cats who lived in cities 200 years ago didn’t have squirrels to chase. How did they entertain themselves?

Meet Moossa, a 6 months old boy from Baghdad – and sadly, Iraq’s first victim of polio in 14 years.

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy"
“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job.

The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.
It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”
