Resumes Must Grab Readers’ Attention
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2010
It’s only recently that I have personally taken advantage of DVR technology. Yes, I watched shows when they were on live AND sat through commercials. We didn’t even have cable (believe it), so using the VCR to record and replay shows wasn’t a good option – the reception was not good enough make it worthwhile. So, when TV went digital and the converter box for those without cable didn’t give me access to ABC, it was time to ...

The Late Show
by Suzanne Bates - May, 2010
"How we spend our days, of course, is how we spend our lives" - Annie Dillard, The Writing Life The meeting was in downtown Boston, about a 25 minute ride with no traffic. For some reason I had reserved only 30 minutes travel time on my calendar.
