Bloggers To Brave Non-organic Food & Truck Stops In the Name Of Activism

A group of Californian blogger/activists is boarding a "BlogMobile" today in Los Angeles en route to next weekend's "One Nation Working Together" rally on the National Mall in Washington, DC. From the group's website:
The One Nation Working Together Blog Mobile is an RV filled with 7 Californians (plus CA 2 drivers) who are driving across the country in to [sic] Washington, DC — stopping along the way to interview and tell the stories of Americans from different walks of life, highlighting the hopes, struggles and experiences that unite us.

The trip will run from Sept. 25 – Oct. 2nd, 2010 — and will culminate when the RV pulls up to to participate in the One Nation Working Together’s Oct. 2 March on Washington, DC.

They'll stop in seven cities on the way to Washington, DC. These cities are Riverside, California; Phoenix; Albuquerque; Oklahoma City; Pine Bluff, Arkansas; Atlanta, Georgia; and Charlotte, North Carolina. In between, they'll complain that their connection to the Internet keeps dropping.

You can follow their trip here and on Facebook. For more information about next weekend's "One Nation Working Together" rally on the National Mall, click here.

  1. How about planning on organic food delivered to every doors? What ya think? Just asking.

  2. Not a bad idea, given hunger statistics and the price of most organic food. You should check out FeedingAmerica.org for hunger statistics if you get a chance. They are eye-opening.

    Thanks for your comment.

Seven tips for dealing with a jealous coworker

Look at you, doing so well at work! We're so happy for you. Well, most of us are happy for you and refuse to spend the entire work day talking behind your back. Let's talk about how to handle our jealous co-workers!Like every other professional, you've no doubt experienced your share of failures and successes. Lately, however, things seem to be going your way at work. And how! Perhaps you've managed to ace an important project this quarter, been instrumental in landing a huge client, earned some well-deserved rewards for this and that, or -- egads! -- been given a slight promotion or additional work responsibilities (e.g., the work responsibilities you actually want).You're quietly chuffed, but somehow your co-workers seem none too pleased with this rapid turn of events. Oh no, what should you do now?It's a workplace tale older than the disjointed last season of Mad Men. The playing field in the department was even, cozy and overall very friendly -- until so-an…

Employees Blame Technology For Slowing Them Down At Work

Do you feel like you're always working, but never getting very much done? If so, you're not alone. Too much technology, and too much red tape, keep slowing us down at work. But technology, and more of it, is supposed to make our lives easier! Too much technology, however, does not compute for employees. A new SAP/Knowledge@Wharton survey of almost 700 corporate employees finds a full 60% of respondents blame technology "for inhibiting their ability to meet strategic goals." Gee, anyone who has ever used the self-checkout line at the grocery store can tell you that. However, 40% surveyed said that looking for ways to simplify the technology has been "a low priority" for their company. Too much paperwork is an on-going problem for the workplace, too. A new ServiceNow survey of nearly 1,000 managers finds that 90% are doing too much administrative work, no matter the size of the company. This paperwork includes filling out forms, writing status updates, …

Is Your Co-worker Always Late For Work?

You've started the workday, but where is your co-worker? Oh, she's running late again, just like yesterday. And the day before. And the day before that. Let's get an early start on solving her tardiness problem, shall we? Working with someone who is consistently late is one of the most annoying aspects of office life, and also one of the most common, unfortunately. It's a universal theme of the workplace that everyone will get to work on time (give or take a few minutes...) except for the employee who is egregiously late nearly every day. And the excuses can get pretty amazing. Employees became more punctual as the Great Recession lingered, at least according to surveys. Everyone, that is, except for your able-bodied but habitually-tardy co-worker. It's bad enough dealing with tardiness when you're a manager, but it can be even more frustrating when you're a rank-and-file peer without any magical "shape up or ship out" managerial powers. So you…
