Is Your Company Depressed?

Of all the business problems companies have, I think they become more magnified when the chief executive officers lose sight that their organization is made up of people. In my experience...

I'm Majoring in Awesome. You?

I'm Majoring in Awesome. You?

Remember when your mom told you your eyeballs would freeze if you played video games for too long? Well, she was only looking out for your best interests, but now you can tell her that all those hours spent fighting virtual villains just might translate into a great career in the video game industry.

When you're starting college, one of the most important decisions you will make is what you're going to major in. The trick is to find something you'll be passionate about (and it helps if that passion will actually pay the bills one day.) A growing number of students are finding that combination with newly minted game design degrees. Colleges like the University of Southern California and Carnegie Mellon are sending graduates to work for industry giants like Electronic Arts Inc. and Digital Domain. The average starting salary for the industry is $73,600.

We sooo picked the wrong major.

If video gaming isn't your bag, what other interests really capture your attention? Do you think you'll be able to turn a hobby into a career by finding a coinciding college major? [LA Times]

TRUSTED LENDER (LEXIELOANCOMPANY@YAHOO.COM)
My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
