The T.I.R.E.D. Device

The T.I.R.E.D. Device

The seven-year-old and the four-year-old each held my hand (or rather I held on to them) as we walked down the mall.

I felt like a helicopter trying to get the blades spinning. They jerked, twirled, and pulled my arms as we walked.

After 30 minutes, I wondered, "Don't these kids ever get tired?"

I am an inventor. I have developed computer programs, music, electronic devices, cosmetics, health products, mechanical devices and other stuff in addition to writing MountainWings.

I have an idea and I want to run it by you to see if you would want one. It's always good to do market research before spending a lot of time developing something.

This is the idea:
A device that transfers your kid's excess energy to you.
It's called the "Transfer In Reverse Energy Device" or T.I.R.E.D. for short.

Whenever you feel a little drained and your kids have energy to spare, you would simply push the button labeled "T.I.R.E.D." and instantly (well maybe in ten seconds or so) you would get a big burst of energy and they would calm down.

Before I began working on T.I.R.E.D., I just wonder is there anyone besides me who needs such a machine and how much would you pay for it?

Sanitize Your Facebook Profile or Else!

Sanitize Your Facebook Profile or Else!


Before you post that naughty picture on Facebook you may want to consider this.

70% of employers admit to have rejected job applicants because of the personal information found on the internet.

Apparently though, potential employees are not as oblivious to this percentage as one might think. Although 60% of applicants say they are concerned about the effect their public internet profiles may have on their employment chances, only 15% of them actually censor the content they post.

According to these numbers, it seems that, statistically speaking, the majority of people value an embellished cyber-life more than a career.

These outrageous numbers are so out of proportion that Microsoft now sponsors an annual non-holiday day termed "Data Privacy Day." The aim of this day is not only to spread awareness about the risks of negligent postings, but more so to publicize their flip side.

86% of U.S. human resource workers say that employers assign great value to job candidates' positive online representations, and impressive background searches can amount to positive outcomes for employees.

Do you sanitize  your online profile for employment purposes? Are you concerned about how your online profile might influence your profession?
