Good morning and welcome to the first Minnesota Morning. Tomorrow my focus will be on Minnesota political races and some commentary on the ads that are being forced upon us.
-Dennis Smith at WirelessJobs.com with Who’s Ditching Landline for Wireless?. Looks like Minneapolis is one of the leaders in going completely wireless.
The University of Minnesota Board of Regents has a 6-year student position coming up for grabs. The Minnesota Daily with a story on the job and how to get it, So you want to be a regent?
-The Why of Local Recruiting
I know that Jim’s post is about the market in St. Louis but many of the things he has been doing are things I want to do here in Minneapolis, just not enough hours in a day. Maybe one of my local blogging friends would like to get into this with me?
-how to survive searching for the technical job of your dreams
There are plenty of good companies to work for. So often I see candidates focus on one or two with the big name. They do not think about the dozens of good companies they would pass on the commute every day that could make them just as happy and offer better opportunities.
-Is Your Staffing Brand Stale?
Mine was and that is why I made the major change(s) I did.
-Corporate America embraces social networking
That’s too bad. I was enjoying their lack of participation.
-Big news from Senator Barak Obama on a potential run for the White House in 2008. As an independent (note that with the little i and not the big I) I can be excited about him as a leader.
-Tuesday I will have some links to recent local poll results, maybe they are biased and maybe not. All I know is my Democrat friends are cautiously optimistic (borderline giddy) and my Republican friends are scared (bordering on suicidal).
Damn, there went the idea of an undefeated season. 6-1 is a great way to start the season and the national sports folks are already talking about hockey in June in St. Paul. Now we need to see the results of Marian Gaborik’s groin injury. If memory serves me right he missed 17 some games last year with it.
Whew, a week off and unlike last year no Love Boat Scandal. In fact, it was 100% quiet, maybe because it was too chilly to be on Lake Minnetonka. As for the Seattle game I actually watched most of it while I was in the office. The defense looked good, Brad Johnson looked good, and Chester Taylor continues to make me look good to my friends who I told to pick up in their fantasy football league.
-Gopher Hockey, Men
#7 Minnesota sweeps Ohio State to go 4-1 on the season. Friday night saw scoring from 13 players including nine freshmen who helped with 6 goals and 9 assists. Saturday the power play went 4-7.
For the most part I am not paying attention. I do find it ironic that all of the big time sports guys from New York are sitting in cold Detroit instead of Yankee stadium. Serves them right for thinking they could buy a trophy.
But did Kenny Rogers cheat? I have been asking for two weeks if he was on performance enhancing drugs be cause he has been awesome. Maybe I should have asked if he using substance(s) on his hand, from ESPN Rogers was masterful, but did he cheat?
