1. Your favorite public broadcasting network, NPR, is looking for someone to record their “this… is NPR” voiceover show closers, “support for this program comes from…” ramblings, and more. You could be that person! Although, come to think of it, the following people have voices made of gold and silver and other precious things, so they might deserve the job. Because, really, you don’t really want the job anyway. Hearing yourself after Ira Glass or Terry Gross might send you into a state of anxious paralysis.

  1. Even before Benghazi, the IRS and the Department of Justice controversies started heating up, the economy had consistently taken a back seat to issues such as immigration and gun control.

    "The economy is by far the most important issue for voters," says Karlyn Bowman, a polling expert at the American Enterprise Institute. "It’s not unusual for Washington preoccupations to be different than those of the public."

    She says that the public is skeptical that Washington can provide economic answers at this point. Politicians themselves seem a little dubious.

    The average American will never work for Google or Apple. But the rise of the high tech sector matters to all of us, including those who work outside high tech. One important reason is that attracting an Internet company or a biotech company to a city results in significant job gains for workers in the local service sector – occupations like waiters, carpenters, doctors and teachers. I call this the multiplier effect. This multiplier effect is surprisingly large. My research shows that for each new high tech job in a city, five additional jobs are created outside high tech in that city. In essence, from the point of view of a city, a high-tech job is much more than a job.
