More Men Are Landing More New Jobs Than Women

If you're a woman this should come as no surprise to you!  Men are getting more than two thirds of the jobs as our economy enters into the recovery stages.  One reason for this might be that many men are showing up in jobs that were predominatly female dominated, retail being one of them.

The Winter Blues Don’t Have To Get You Down

I did a story on the Morning Show this morning about "winter blues."  That's because, here in West Michigan, we have very little sunshine during the late-fall and winter months.  A lack of sunshine can really be depressing.  Some suffer so severely that they're diagnosed with a disorder called SAD, (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and it can be debilitating.

Are You Ready To Junk Your Blackberry?

Do you own a BlackBerry?   My wife does.  Are you frustrated with the service, or, non-service?   My wife is. If the answer is ‘yes’ to the above, you can yell with my wife.   But, please don’t yell at me.  I can’t make your phone work.  Famous line in my house…’well, do something’!

Okay, Blackberry services are coming back to life across the world after the three-day outage that interrupted email messages and Internet services for millions of customers.

Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer Has A Green Screen Mishap[video]

Green, I have come to learn, is the wrong color to wear when you sit up against a "green screen".  A "green screen" is used to superimpose different backgrounds for a reporter to stand up against.  Television reporting 101 says don't ever wear green.  Guess Lara didn't get the memo!  Cute because she's already little but to see the rest of her disappear like magic.  Well, it's fun to watch along with her embarrassment and razzing from the rest of the crew. Check out the video after the jump!
