Saturday blog-sweep

Average is apparently over.

Yesterday, my sister graduated from the OU top of her class thirty-five years after leaving school. Lord Puttnam made a short and very thought-provoking speech to us.  He quoted Tom Freidman's article in last months NYT suggesting average is no longer enough. It is well worth reading and pondering if you want to think about the future of work, education, economics and the world of work our children may have to face.

"In the past, workers with average skills, doing an average job, could earn an average lifestyle. But, today, average is officially over. Being average just won’t earn you what it used to. It can’t when so many more employers have so much more access to so much more above average cheap foreign labor, cheap robotics, cheap software, cheap automation and cheap genius. Therefore, everyone needs to find their extra — their unique value contribution that makes them stand out in whatever is their field of employment. Average is over."

If your flight is canceled you can search for other flights which may still get you to your destination.
So stations stepped up the amount of events they did per year.

So you can imagine how much your choice has increased from before.

Perfect for a chillout slow jam hangout after the clubs close.

Compassion also arises out of a sense of vulnerability and shared humanity'the realization that we are all connected to everyone and everything at all times, that we are not isolated or separate. This was a live performance recorded by Dutch national television, 2 April 2011 (therefore it isn't fully cough free), by four pianists:
Elisabeth Bergmann, Marcel Bergmann, Sandra van Veen, and Jeroen van Veen.

On the positive side the purchaser could earn a quick and substantial profit
if they can quickly sell their option to a third party.
Just like residential real estate contracts, Dallas commercial real estate
contracts have their share of contingencies.
Here is what to study: Sales rate, time on market,
list to sale ratios, average sale price per square foot by style
of home, percentage of listings that expire unsold and home value and rental rate trends.
