Obama is almost oveweight (and the fallacy of a one-size-fits-all job search strategy)

obamaApparently President Obama is at risk of being overweight. An article on CNN, which reports Obama was told to lower his "bad" cholesterol (LDL), says his body mass index (BMI) is 23.7. If he gets to 25.0 then he's considered overweight.

According to this Department of Health and Human Services BMI is a "reliable indicator of total body fat," which is important because the total body fat is "related to the risk of disease and death." That phrase, "disease and death," is the real clincher here - it insinuates "pay attention or you might get diseased... or you might die!"

 The rules have changed. If you're looking for a great job, with a great company, with great benefits, that you will have your entire life, until you retire, stop looking. That was then this is now. That job doesn't exist anymore for 99% of us. It took me 3 months of searching for a job to make me realize that I had to think outside the box. A friend of mine told me that he found a home business opportunity at this site ( snipurl.com/EZHomeBiz  ) Normally I would consider all of those programs to be scams but this one seemed to cover all of my previous fears and objections. And with a real money back guarantee I knew I had nothing to lose. All I can say is that it worked out much better than I even dreamed it could and I am thriving even in this bad economy.
