Jan 8th 2013 4:24PM I lived in Utah for 25 years. Formerly from the SF Bay area and truthfully, 20 years ago this journalist might be correct, at least from her first perspective of the city. But, I think you'll see a dramatic change in the culture (FYI: There are more non-Mormons in SLC than Mormons), though I enjoyed and had many Later Day Saints members as friends. The point, if you like to recreate, there's something for everyone and in the countryside, you'll never see a bluer sky. If you haven't been to the Red Rock country in the south of the state you're missing something special. If it wasn't so cold there in the Winter, I'd still be living there.
Mar 21st 2011 8:44PM Fake vibrato? Frank Sinatra never sang vibrato. Not ever. Perhaps you are confused with another musical intonation.
Mar 21st 2011 8:43PM Not Frank Sinatra and not even close, but what I appreciate is a young man who has reached back to some lovely songs of the past. It's nice to know rap and hip hop haven't captured the imagination of all our young kids.
Feb 7th 2011 8:27AM Am I the only one that thought the game was sub-par? Dropped passes, missed assignments, lack of creativity and just no excitement at all.
Dec 28th 2010 8:20AM Actually, I think he's a mirror image of Steve Young. Quick feet, smart passer and tons of energy he brings to the game. They're almost built the same.
Sep 14th 2010 10:01AM Nadal's knees won't hold up. No matter how much he rests in between. At 24 years of age, he's way too young to have these kinds of problems. He'll never make 27.
Jul 18th 2010 9:26PM Yeh, I'll remember "what's his face" when he wins 14 Majors. This writer seems to be too emotionally involved in his stories. Stick to the facts. It was a good win today, but let's do away with the hyperbole.
Mar 1st 2010 8:31AM I would disagree. Your resume should be outstanding and stand above others. It should bring to life would you have to offer. HR departments, recruiters and employers in general are receiving hundreds if not thousands of resumes for a single opportunity. If you expect to tell someone your entire life history in multiple pages, you're allowing quite often, a low level HR person to make some decisions about you before you ever get a chance to explain yourself to a decision maker. Less is more.
Feb 22nd 2010 8:51AM Exotic, Adventure, Culture, Landscape and People. All the pieces to a Tour of a Lifetime. Hope I'm selected.
Nov 16th 2009 4:08PM Why the surprise? There isn't one successful company in any socialist country that doesn't try to send their money offshore or hide it in a labyrnth of corporations, charities, trusts and any other tax shelter they can find or find themselves taxed through the roof. These kinds of companies are always attractive targets for socialist governments. That's why you see all the successful professional athletes move to Monaco or other tax havens.
Fact is, the more productive you are, the more you are penalized. Tax these companies reasonably on the front end; on their gross earnings and you'd probably find you would be getting more money out of them without all these tax shaninigans.
