Losing a Job is Never Easy: Just Ask Ann Curry
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2012
It pained me to watch Ann Curry’s goodbye on The Today Show today. Job loss isn’t easy for anyone; having to make the formal announcement on national television was obviously very difficult for her. She showed all the classic emotions of job loss…shock, grief, fear, denial, and perhaps a tinge of anger. Obviously Ann is in a much better place than many of us. She is being reassigned, she will still command a nice salary, and...

by Randall Hansen - Feb, 2012
Why college? Unless you are one of the lucky few who receive a full scholarship to college, is a college education -- and tens of thousands of dollars in debt for you or your family -- always the right path after high school?
