"Person to Person - Satisfaction and Service are Our Business"
If my personal or professional reputation is trashed online & I don't know
it, does it matter?
With the rise of social media like Facebook, My Space, Twitter and blogs it is
easier than ever to trash someone online and they don't know it. From Cyber Bullying to
investigating your new potential beau's online reputation and background it is
critical that we know about and monitor what is said about us or someone online.
Here are a couple of articles and sites that can help.
Yes. You read that right. A social media background check is now possible thanks
to a ruling by the Federal Trade Commission. It also provides us parents with further
reinforcement that it's incredibly important to teach our children how to "safely and
responsibility network online".
It can be a scary thing when you notice a change in your child's behavior and you
come to find out that something happened, or is happening, to them online. That's
what happened to a friend of mine who recently reached out to me.
MyReputation® acts as your own personal PR agency. It gives you complete control
over your online reputation by alerting you to all personal content or information that
exists online about you, automatically monitoring who is searching for you, and
helping you create a customized online presence by publishing content about you.
The launch of Google+ has caused an old issue to boil to the surface: should you
be required to use your real name when signing up for Facebook, LinkedIn and other
social networking services? The Big 3 think so and whether you agree or not, you're
witnessing the beginning of the end of the anonymous internet.
Let's be diligent out there!

FIND OUT WHAT YOUR GOVERNMENT'S UP TO!
The locked doors of the government are now open at http://www.data.gov. This site
contains three separate catalogs of data and data-based tools for government
information: the raw data catalog, which includes a variety of data streams and file
formats, the online tool catalog of compiled searches and resources, and the geodata
catalog of geography-based data streams.
Data.gov is part of the federal government's Open Government Directive; this
website is a clearinghouse for federal public information. It's also a major part of the
government's effort to become more accessible and transparent. As the potential of
open data and open government evolve, this site is likely to play a major role in the
way government information is shared.

Coinflation vs Inflation
Finances have been the main topic of conversation and news coverage for quite
a while now. Everything from the national debt to budget crisis to the value of
the dollar are discussed by all, it would seem. And there are countless
complicated pieces of advice for investments and battling inflation ... steps to
take to help or protect you that boggle the mind and require a degree in finance
or accounting just to start. Not to mention a requirement of funding that many of
us don't have.
If only there were some way to get an instant profit returned on an investment as
little as .25˘! You know .... pull a quarter out of your pocket and have someone give
you 50˘ for it! You'd do that all day long - wouldn't you? Well, start emptying
your pockets and piggy banks and go to http://www.coinflation.com to see that a lot
of the change in your pocket could now be worth more than face value!
In a time where gold and silver are valued long term investments, many dealers
of coins and silver are buying coins for their silver value alone. Coinflation
gives you a daily updated value of coins, the % of metal content (such as silver
or gold) and a lot more.
The tables do not reflect U.S. Mint production costs, but the pure base metal
value that composes the coin. Calculations are based on coin weight, metal
composition, and base metal prices. It gives you an opportunity to see what coins
are over 100% of their face value ...and there are a lot more than you think.
For example today I took the quarters out of my change drawer at my desk ... I had
$5 to spend in the vending machines .... 20 quarters. Most of them were dated from
1969 to 2000 and are not impressive - but 3 were dated 1963 and 1964, which today can
be sold for $7.2755 each! That's correct .... I will take those into a coin shop on
my way home and gladly let them give me $7 or so for it - they get a profit and I
make $21+ and still have $4.25 to waste in the vending machines. Not a bad day!
During these times of spiraling inflation pay a little more attention to the
change in your pocket and use coinflation instead.
