Kansas Turns to Wind Energy

Construction is underway in Lincoln and Ellsworth counties on Kansas' fourth wind farm. The 56 turbines are anticipated to generate enough power for a town of about 33,000 people. Use of wind towers has caused some controversy in the sunflower state. Some traditional environmental groups oppose the development and believe the turbines will obstruct scenic Kansas views for landowners and tourists. Many ranchers, on the other hand, are enthusiastic about the potential land rental income of $2,000 per turbine. As for the future of Kansas wind farms, Governor Kathleen Sebelius has set a goal to provide 10 percent of the state's energy through wind power by 2010. National goals are 20 percent of the country's energy power produced from wind by 2030.

Office Humor

A young executive was leaving the office at 6pm when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in hand.

"Listen," said the CEO, "this is important, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?"

"Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

Kansas Players Recognized in Big 12 Awards

Kansas State and the University of Kansas football teams both faced challenges during the season. Kansas State posted a 5-7 record for the season losing the last four straight games. Over Thanksgiving weekend KU faced a devastating 38-26 loss to rival Missouri in the Border Showdown at Arrowhead Stadium blemishing a previously undefeated record for the season. Though both overcame hurdles, K-State and KU fans have much to celebrate as the Big 12 Conference announces the 2007 Football Awards.

The Topeka Capital Journal quoted KU head coach as saying, "I mean it when I tell you the credit belongs to our coaches and our players." Big 12 voters disagree giving him the credit as Mangino takes the 2007 Coach of the Year award making him the first coach in Kansas history to receive the honor. He will have to share the award with Missouri coach Gary Pinkel, although this makes the honor no less impressive as he took his team up the polls as high as No. 2 and finished the regular season No. 5 in the BCS rankings.

Mangino makes a valid statement though in giving his players credit as well. Fellow award winners include WR Marcus Herford as Special Teams Player of the Year and James McClinton receiving the Defensive Lineman of the Year award. Four other KU players were named to the 2007 All-Big 12 Football First Team, one offensive and three defensive players.

Kansas State fans also have reason to feel good about the 2007 team as KSU players took both Newcomer of the Year awards for the second time in conference history. Deon Murphy, WR, was named Offensive Newcomer of the Year and Gary Chandler, DB, received Defensive Newcomer of the Year. Three other KSU players were named to the 2007 All-Big 12 Football First Team, one on offense and two defensive players.

To see a list of all 2007 Big 12 award winners see:

Right vs. Left Brian

Click on the image to view it. Which way do you see it spin? If the image is spinning clockwise then you are more right brained and if it is spinning counterclockwise then you are more left brained.

Deck the Halls!...

...with new employees? It's the middle of November, why would you be thinking about job searching? Better yet, why should you? There are more important things to think about, such as, who's playing Thanksgiving Day? (And what time?!) How early are you going to have to wake up on Black Friday? Is it really necessary to get the dog a stocking? (And fill it?) Job searching should be the farthest thing from your mind right now, right?


I came across an interesting article written by John M. O'Connor, President of Career Pro of NC Inc, "After the Holidays (And Other Bad Job Search Advice). According to John O'Connor, the holidays are not such a bad time to job search: Logically, there is less competition! "The truth is," O'Connor says, "many positions come open hear the holidays. It's a good time for individuals to make moves, quit and end employment. Remember this-The Bureau of Labor Statistics report that 65% of people are dissatisfied with their jobs. This may put companies into a bit of a crissi mode. But it's an advantage to you."

O'Connor suggests that even though the Holidays can be stressful enough, be productive with your time and your attitude. "Develop a new, professional resume; .... It may be a good time to face reality about your resume." He suggests working on Choppy Work History, Out of Work, Unrelated Experience, Lack of Experience and Hazy Objectives over the Holiday season.

Finally, O'Connor reminds us to act happy through out the Holiday season: "No one wants to network with or interview a depressed, negative sounding person. The people you meet have reason to talk.. Hey, it IS the Holidays after all!

Tips to Help Save Money at the Gas Pump

With gas prices reaching nearly $3 a gallon, we're all looking for ways to try and conserve our use of gasoline. According to the Federal Trade Commission, there are several ways to help conserve gas while driving:

-You could improve in-town gas mileage by up to 5% by avoiding "jack-rabbit" starts and stops.
-Stay within the posted speed limits. Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph.
-Use cruise control when appropriate.
-Keep your engine tuned, and be sure to change your oil on a regular basis.
-Check and replace air filters regularly. Clogged filters can decrease your gas mileage by 10%.
-Remove all unnecessary items from your trunk to help reduce fuel economy.
-Keep your tires properly aired and aligned.

Mixed bag for SCCA

"We still need to work on the spectator base," said Jim Julow, president and chief executive officer of the Sports Car Club of America.

Though official attendance numbers were unavailable on Monday, the number of fans in the stands at Heartland Park Topeka last week wasn't as high as organizers expected. Last year, attendance was poor, partly because of cold rainy weather. Weather cooperated this year except Saturday morning when it rained.

Steps for a Successful Job Interview

The big day is here! You've filled out multiple applications and submitted resume after resume. Finally, the company wants to interview you! Don't stress! Here are some simple tips to help you impress any future employer during an interview!

  • Research: Make yourself familiar with the company and what type of business they are. Look at their website. Make sure you know where they are located and the directions to get there.

  • Attire: Anything you would wear to mow the lawn or for a night on the town should be left in your closet. Avoid excessive jewelry and perfume or cologne. Leave your cell phone and alarm wristwatch at home!

  • Etiquette: Don't forget to bring extra copies of your resume to the interview. Arriving at your interview 10-15 minutes early and introducing yourself to the receptionist could already leave a positive, lasting impression with the employer. During the interview be sure to sit up straight, make eye contact, and do not chew gum. Once the interview is complete, thank your interviewers for their time, and ask for a business card.

  • Questions: Before the interview, think of 2-5 questions you may have for the employer. Be prepared for the interviewer to ask you what you already know about the position or industry. When asked a question, be sure to think it through. If you answer too quickly, you may begin to ramble and forget what the question was in the first place.

During any interview, remember: Stay calm, relax and keep in mind they chose to interview you! Something about your resume or application caught their eye. Now is the time to impress! Good luck!
