Control the Focus and Control the Meeting
by Chris Lytle Monster Contributing Writer
Life is one big seminar. It is not always necessary to go to formal training sessions to learn how to sell. There are many accidental seminars put on by people you encounter every day. In this one, I learned a valuable lesson about asking questions and controlling a meeting's focus. (more...)

Being Here, Now
Living in the moment:
It is the basis of a whole philosophical movement. Almost every spiritual practice embraces it. It is both simplistic and complex in concept; living in the moment is about just being. Being fully present in every situation, body, mind, and soul, so that you experience everything you do totally and absolutely.
In those moments when you engage yourself completely, nothing in the future exists - and nothing in the past is holding you back. (more..)

School Daze....

Cash Freeze for E-Rate Hits Schools
A freeze on $3.28 billion in requests for aid under the federal E-rate program has left hundreds of school districts scrambling to pay for their technology needs--and, in some cases, crippled classroom instruction. http://www.edweek.org/ew/ewstory.cfm?slug=06Erate.h24

Schools Abroad Brace Against Terrorism
The horrifying hostage standoff at a school in southern Russia last month underscored the vulnerability of schools around the world, where the scope of security varies greatly, school leaders and private consultants say.

Translation Efforts a Growing Priority for Urban Schools
The New York City school system is setting up, for the first time, a centralized office to routinely translate school information into eight different languages.

Vouchers Linked to Graduation in Milwaukee
Students using state-financed vouchers to attend private schools in Milwaukee graduate from high school at a far higher rate than young people in the city's public schools, according to a study released last week by a group that supportsthe high-profile choice program.

Paige: It's Not Too Early to Call School Law a Success
Secretary of Education Rod Paige is declaring the No Child Left Behind Act a success, arguing that there is ample evidence the law is improving student achievement. But linking test scores directly to federal policy is a risky business, and some say the Bush administration is getting way ahead of itself.

Field Trips to the Mall?
A growing number of public and private schools are taking their students on"retail" field trips to outlets such as Petco, Sports Authority, Winn-Dixie, andthe carmaker Saturn, EDUCATION WEEK reports.
In a time of tightened budgets,these retail field trips have proved popular, but have also been criticized asblatantly promotional. Is there a role for school field trips to retail stores? What do such fieldtrips teach?
What kinds of field trips are most valuable for students?

Good news: 'Phishing' scams net only $500 million
By CNET News.com Staff CNET News.com
September 29, 2004, 12:22 PM PT

The online cons known as "phishing" have cost U.S. consumers $500 million, according to a study released Wednesday.
In addition, the study found that three-quarters of wired Americans have noticed an increase in phishing incidents during the past few months, with one-third saying they've receiving e-mails sent under fraudulent pretenses at least once a week.
The study, sponsored by Truste, a nonprofit privacy group, and NACHA, an electronic payments association, surveyed 1,335 Internet users across the United States.
Phishing scams use e-mails that appears to come from trusted companies to lure people to bogus Web sites, where they're asked to divulge sensitive personal information, such as
credit card data. Attacks frequently target bank customers, but recent scams have sought out users of Gmail and Amazon.com.

KNOCK-DEAD COVERAGE

It is a sad commentary on the state of campaign coveragethat droves of reporters emerged on Friday with the exactsame judgment, delivered with the exact same boxing metaphor.

Save Our Transit Goes to Harrisburg on October 5 –
There’re Still Seats Left!
Shortly before their summer recess, a bipartisan group of Pennsylvania lawmakers introduced legislation that will provide a dedicated and reliable funding stream
for public transit operations all across the state. Both urban and rural public transit will benefit when these bills pass. If Senate Bill 1162 and House Bill 2697 do not pass, public transit riders will face disastrous service cuts beginning in early 2005. On Tuesday, October 5, there will be a bus trip to the State Capitol to join with other public transit groups from around the state
to rally for these bills. The bus will leave from downtown Pittsburgh at 7am and return by 8pm.
The cost will be around $15 round trip but nobody will be excluded for lack of funds. Call 412-361-3022 for more information and to get on the bus.

Upcoming Statewide Healthcare Conference

PA United for Single Payer Healthcare (PUSH) is a key participant in the planning for what is likely to be an extraordinary gathering of state and national experts and citizens from across Pennsylvania. The purpose of the state
conference is to grapple with a crisis in healthcare of unprecedented proportions. It will be held on Monday, October 18th in Harrisburg.
Tens of millions of Americans are under-insured. 45 million have no health insurance. Healthcare costs have increased by about 50% over the past four years. Small and large businesses and non-profits face exploding premiums. This results in cutbacks in coverage for employees and affects hiring decisions.
President Bush has just announced the largest increase in Medicare premiums in the history of the program.

Something has to give. While the experts have much to tell us about various aspects of the problem, the dialogue with those who are most affected will be crucial to the development of
strategies to adequately address the problem.

The conference has two immediate goals: to develop a statewide national healthcare coalition and to adopt a bill to cover all Pennsylvanians similar to the legislation that has been introduced in over a dozen other states.

It could also help build the momentum to place universal health care in the U.S. on the agenda. The U.S. is the only industrialized nation in the world that lacks a system of national health care.

It is important to register early for the conference. Registration is $25. You can do so at: https://www.123signup.com/register?id=fgrfh

Overqualified?

In most job interviews, the phrase “overqualified” means “overpaid.” Like a good sales rep, counter this argument by focusing on your value rather than your price. Mention qualities like judgment, insight and experience -- especially if you've seen mistakes and won't make them.

Learn more interview tactics in my new book, Monster Careers, which can be found here or in bookstores everywhere. -- Jeff Taylor
