  • The Unwanted Arab Spring that’s bad for business
    Call me a cynic. God knows I’ve tried to be an idealist for the last couple of months. It started with Egypt. I was so moved by the millions of people who braved everything to take to the streets and demand Mubarak step down. Yes! Tunisia was not a fluke. A democratic wave might roll through the autocratic Middle-East and North Africa. There was hope. There was light. But...

  • I got SCAMMED looking for a job
    Like a lot of other poor slobs, I have been unable to find a job since graduation from UNLV May 09.  Not hearing back from employers or temp agencies that have no jobs, I am definitely feeling the effects of the 15% unemployment rate. I looked in the Sunday Review-Journal Classifieds.  In the Miscellaneous section I found several job postings that didn’t really...

  • FDA and Drugs That Kill
    I took a lot of flack about my article on the FDA and drugs. The book I recommended by Kevin Trudeau, I was told, was written by a charlatan with no credentials other than he had made bucketsful of money selling himself as one of the gurus of the self-improvement age. Having made lots of dough promoting yourself, to my mind, demonstrates having a real good sense of what...

  • Gas prices too high? Don’t pump on May 15
    There’s an internet action in the works to boycott gas pumps on May 15 in protest over high gas prices. The claim is a national “gas out” in April 1997 in protest of those gas prices (look cheap today) caused gasoline prices to drop 30 cents/gallon overnight. The program goes like this: There are 73,000,000 American users on the internet. It takes...

  • Public Speaking Workshop
    Today is the Las Vegas chapter of the National Speakers Association workshop on Sat May 19 from 9a-4p. This is a dynamic group of people – intelligent, involved and interesting. These are all qualities that I often hear people are searching for in other Las Vegans. Let me stress you do not have to be a member to attend the workshops, but your fees are less if...

  • High-End Antiques at Wholesale Prices
    This seems like a unique opportunity for non-professionals to have a chance to purchase some very high-end antiques at wholesale prices normally reserved for designers, decorators and builders. Market Road is owned by two local UNLV law graduates, who are following their dream of collecting and bringing to the public an eclectic mix of British, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish...

  • FDA assault on natural health choices
    The FDA is a powerful government organization that controls our access to prescription and non-prescription drugs. The FDA wants to control access to natural health products like vitamins, minerals and herbs – along with natural health therapies of all sorts. If you do your research, I think you will find that the FDA is too closely involved with the pharmaceutical...

  • Kick Off World Trade Week
    World Trade Week has been an institution in Los Angeles for 80 years. Nevada has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, so it seemed liked a natural that Las Vegas was ripe for its own World Trade Week.
