Who would think you’d have to know how to actually talk to someone to get a job. that’s one of the major reasons young kids can’t get a job. 60% of hiring managers say they are actually the ones that are holding themselves back, and the big thing is many don’t know how to talk to other people in a professional way. Other ‘soft skills’ they lack arewriting, problem-solving, flexibility, punctuality…There’s a good place to start: don’t be late for the interview.
There’s a website that can guess what you say on your Facebook statuses.
It has some sort of algorithm that trends what you say over all of your statuses, jumbles them together and then you find out what you get!
Complete random ones!
Pop culture ones!
Go ahead and log into Facebook while you’re there. You’ll get some gems! Let us know which funny, family friendly ones you got! Tell us in the comments on the QMIX Facebook page!
Don’t deny it!
I love it when friends on Facebook post interesting reads that suck you in and get your mind thinking. It provides a good balance from all the Bit Strips and Ridiculous memes and info graphs.
OK- back to this great read…
I’m sure if you’ve ever traveled to another country, you’ve come across some interesting traditions, food, ways of living, etc…and I bet you have thought “That is so weird! Why do you do it this way?”
Well this article is how other countries see us…
Some very interesting insights in this…both on the light and heavy side. I think we as Americans get so caught up in the attitude that we are awesome at everything and do all the things right, that we miss considering how other cultures and countries see and do things in their daily lives.
I hope you take some time to check this out (or at least bookmark it and read it at lunch).
It’s a great opportunity to appreciate what you have, and realize that we can be “foreigners” too.
Enjoy! -Sara Beth
And it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t think it’s best to stay home from work if you’re sick, but few follow that advice. Only 16% of people believe someone who is sick should go to work, but three times as many (47%) say they go when they’re sick. And even if they do stay home, they’re not staying there until they’re better. 76% of people say that’s the right thing to do, but only 44% say it’s what they do. For me it’s because buying a $8 bottle of NyQuil and knocking myself out for a couple of days isn’t acceptable anymore and my boss wants a doctor’s note!
If you’re going through a divorce it’s always good to have a friend who’s grounded to talk you out of doing the stupid stuff that comes to mind. Case in point, the guy in Vero Beach who left a fake bomb in the kitchen of his to be ex-wife. She called the cops and told them her husband left a gray pipe with a wire sticking out of it on counter along with several hand-written notes that said, “This is (an) explosive. (It’s) a bomb.” They found him down the street and arrested him. He said he did it because they had had a fight. Well, this is bound to help him in his divorce!
Not only that, but people who supposedly want nothing to do with you all of a sudden see worth in it. The man who won the $338 million Powerball jackpot in the spring is fighting for his money because his ex says she deserves half of it. His lawyer says she has no claim it because they were never married. Her lawyers say the two lived together for 10 years, have a child together and shared ownership of a grocery store so she is entitled to part of it. The funny thing is, after arguing for their respective clients the lawyers are going to come away with most of it.
As I was searching for new tunes yesterday, I noticed something different about A Great Big World’s “Say Something” on the charts….
This is the version that we currently play…however there is now a version featuring the lovely and talented Christina Aguilera! Take a listen here…
I would have know about this earlier if I would have been a better fan of The Voice and would have seen this performance last week, but alas, things happen. The good thing is that I know about it NOW and can share it with you!
So- Which version do you love? Do you like the straight honesty of A Great Big World? Or are you a Xtina fan and enjoy her harmonies in the mix?
Love to know what you think! Who knows, maybe you will hear the Christina version on QMIX soon…
Dear Mother Nature….
Thank you for making it snow the way I like snow….
Enough to say- Hey! It snowed! But not enough to make us shovel driveways and delay school.
I may have been humming this song as I was getting ready this morning…
I had these sentiments while digging through my tub of sweaters….
I am also craving one of these….
oh wait…no….that’s everyday…. .
Sure the snow will be gone by the afternoon…but that is ok. I wasn’t done yet with fall anyway.
I hope you enjoy this winter-y fall Tuesday!
…a fan of this Katy Perry performance at the 2013 MTV EVMAs.
She started out as this May Pole thing…
Her dancers were at the bottom and were weaving a cocoon of awesomesauce around Miss Perry
And then towards the end of the song, she shed her cocoon to reveal even more awesomesauce
Check out the full video here. Sorry, I couldn’t find a high quality one, but you get the idea.
