Wal-Mart to Offer Its Workers a College Program

Wal-Mart to Offer Its Workers a College Program

Good or bad identity of Wal-Mart, I think this is a step in the right direction. I have personally had to go through the situation where I needed the financial help and job security which were interdependent on each other.

In order to have the job security I needed to take higher studies and in order to pay for the higher studies I need the job. I already had the loans to pay for the education as I skipped the college after certain time and now wanted to get back into school but all counseling suggestions and the representative suggested loans were just outrageous.

I believe a company sponsored solution will be greatly helpful to these Wal-Mart employees.

NPR - Science Friday
2. NPR - This American Life
3. Star Talk - Radio Show
4. TED Talks - Ideas Worth Spreading
5. NPR - TED Radio HourI hope to to update this list in future and share with you my latest Top Podcasts.Hope you have a happy listening time.

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.

Talk about not so bright people being responsible for naming conventions and acronyms. The IE team allegedly says that “Mic” stands for “Medium Integrity Cookie”… hmmm I might give some hoot to a MSDN blog but is it really??? The process runs non stop, and if I try stopping it, the process makes Windows 8 non stable.hmmm What Gives?
