1) Fluency - Foreign Language Learning - What is fluency?: One of the questions* that I get asked all the time is How long will it take me to speak French fluently? Unfortunately, the answer to this question is difficult for several reasons: There's no universal definition of fluency Every person has a different language-learning potential It depends a great deal on where and how one studies * Wondering what the other questions are? Read my FAQ. This article is an attempt to provide you with some information about these issues - the what, when, where, and how of fluency - so that you can determine your own "fluency potential." :-)

2) Seven LEAN Years: Trying to get a "good" job -- that is to say, a job that is above the national median income of approximately $14 per hour as of 1998 -- is getting harder and harder for a surprising new demographic in America. While the conventional wisdom and the media "talking heads" keep on droning endlessly about a supposed "high-tech labor shortage," the reality of the labor situation in the early twenty- first century is far different from a shortage. The truth about the economic desolation of the American middle class is being hidden by a barrage of press releases emanating from professional spin-doctors who have an agenda that is in opposition to aspirations of the mainstream American high-tech worker.

4) Tech talent alarm sounded (7/22/2001): >"I am not shocked by the content of the Mercury News' recent article >``Tech Talent Alarm Sounded'' (July 22). However, I am shocked that >Congress and much of the media are accepting the pro-immigration lobby >``party line'' without question. > >The cold, hard truth is this: Many U.S. companies have outsourced their >talent-recruitment to third parties who refuse to hire qualified U.S. >scientists, programmers and engineers because they are perceived to cost >more than imported H1-B replacements. > >There is actually a huge surplus of high-tech brains in America, but we >have zero social capital. That is why we can be discriminated against with >impunity. I personally spent seven years in poverty while looking for >high-tech employment. How did I escape? By removing my Caltech master's >degree and my six years of NASA experience from my application. > >By pretending to be a mediocre worker instead of a genius, I was suddenly >offered work by the same companies that had refused to consider me before. > >Yes, in the 21st century it has become necessary to lie on the résumé and >pretend to have lower qualifications in order to avoid being discriminated >against by the anti-genius, anti-U.S.-worker high-tech establishment. > >Tom Nadeau >Dickson, Tenn.

6) A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole: Dave : The Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole is one of my favorite books. It's very funny. Highly recommended. If you want to understand what's going on don't think of others being such a confederacy. Instead think of us all as dunce-like dancing puppets, and you'll be closer to Great Hair.

7) THE MERCK MANUAL--Home Edition, Sec. 4, Ch. 38, Occupational Lung Diseases: Occupational lung diseases are caused by harmful particles, mists, vapors, or gases inhaled while a person works. Where in the airways or lungs an inhaled substance ends up and what type of lung disease develops depend on the size and kind of particles inhaled. Larger particles may get trapped in the nose or large airways, but the smallest ones reach the lungs. There, some particles dissolve and may be absorbed into the bloodstream; most solid particles that don't dissolve are removed by the body's defenses.

9) BookRags Notes: Old Man and the Sea: An old man named Santiago has gone 84 days without catching a fish. During the first 40 days of his unlucky streak, he fished with a young boy named Manolin, who had been with the old man ever since he was five years old. Due to Santiago's bad luck, however, Manolin's parents told their son not to fish with the old man. They forced him to join up with a more lucrative boat, which ended up catching three good-sized fish in its first week.
