~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

There's a wonder in the way we're always free
To change the world by changing how we see.
By Cyndi Craven, from "Love's Shining Peace"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Resumania" is a term coined by Mr. Robert Half, founder of RHI (Robert Half International) to describe the unintentional bloopers that often appear on job candidates' resumes, job applications and cover letters. Here's some examples:
Part 1 of 2 [June 6, 18]

"I perform my job with effortless efficiency, effectiveness, efficacy, and expertise."
(And an eye on the "e" section of the dictionary, evidently.)

"Insufficient writing skills, thought processes have slowed down some. If I am not one of the best, I will look for another opportunity."
(No problem ...)

"Seek challenges that test my mind and body, since the two are usually inseparable."
(Glad to hear it.)

"My compensation should be at least equal to my age."
(And bonuses "tied to" his shoe size?)

"I am very detail-oreinted."
(With the possible exception of spelling)

"I can play well with others."
(We'll be sure to tell your mommy.)

"Married, eight children. Prefer frequent travel."
(A new twist on work-family balance.)

We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public. - Bryan White

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Increased Awareness of Stroke Symptoms Could Dramatically Reduce Stroke Disability

Only a fraction of stroke patients each year are getting to the hospital in time to receive a treatment that makes the difference between disability and full recovery. Thousands more people could benefit from the treatment—a drug called tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA)—but do not, often because they do not know the symptoms of stroke or do not get to the hospital within the drug's 3-hour window of effectiveness. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is launching a national public education campaign, 'Know Stroke: Know the Signs. Act in Time,' to help people overcome these barriers and to get medical help in time. A Fact Sheet is available at: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/health_and_medical/pubs/knowstroke.htm
