I think I am going to start posting interesting links from the previous weeks on Tuesdays. These are some of the articles that I come across in my daily internet surfing (its not all blogging on ATerrificLife and ThinkActProsper) and I would like you to check out too!
Giuseppe is hosting his 4th bi-annual Top Shelf Flea Market at Somerville's Davis Square VFW. There are a number of small vendors all specializing in those of us who like to dress well, but affordably. I am a huge fan of this blog, please check it out.
For those of us who are feeling overworked and/or underpaid, do not lose faith. Here are some tips on how to ask for a raise. I believe its important to make yourself indispensable, so specialize in something you are good at, and learn it better than anyone else. This will add value to your team.
Zero Hedge is one of my favorite blogs, talking all things financial, as this is my industry, it is quite relevant. They are obviously a little harsh and overly pessimistic, but they dig up tons of good tidbits. This clip from a European trader on BBC claims "Goldman owns us all".
Bill Simmon's Grantland has been pretty solid so far, tons of good writing and media. With the NBA lockout looming, which incidentally might not be so bad to my Celtics, here is an article related to the business of basketball owners. Commissioner Stern claims that Ratner lost several hundred million on his sale of the New Jersey Nets to Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, but fails to mention the potential $1,000,000,000 in profits for his company on sales of apartments as well as the new Brooklyn stadium. The moral of the story is that no one should feel bad for the owners.
JD Drew is one of my favorite personal finance writers. He writes on either saving money or making more of it to increase your wealth. His writing on personal debts and banking is some of my favorites. Not to mention his garden project. Here he comments on a familiar problem, grocery shopping when you are hungry.
