Re: Coronal Mass Ejections

CME's scare me but I can't figure out widespread on the Earth's surface they would be and if they would get the whole earth or just the side facing the CME at the time.

Re: KLIC

Re: Resume: most-recent experience or most-relevant

On my resume, should I list my experience from most recent, or should I list my most relevant experience?

Re: great signage

My favorite is the lawyer, Sue Yoo.

There's a urologist practicing in Austin, TX named Dick Chopp. He is the man to see for a vacectomy. I was surprised to see he isn't on the list.

Re: Holes in resume ... what have you been doing?

Re: explaining quitting just because

I'm putting in my notice around the middle of December. I'm not going to another job, or back to school or starting my own business. I'm quitting because I hate the job and have for almost 2 years now. I know my boss/co-workers will want a reason [more]
