Maybe you want a job that requires management experience. Why not take up a job in retail or restaurants and work real hard to perhaps one day get promoted to become a manager? There are all sorts of angles to approach it.

Chris Bosh. A multi-talented player with many elements to his game, Bosh can score the ball with ease and his quickness makes him one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the game. At just 25 years old, he should continue to improve with time.

Al Horford. This may be an unconventional pick, but all one must do is look at the Hawks’ record this season. Moreover, look at the team’s record since they drafted Horford. What was once a miserably unsuccessful franchise just a few short years ago is now one of the strongest teams in the Eastern Conference. What’s the difference, you ask?

Here’s a case in point. This month, Mehmet Oz, MD (Dr. Oz of the popular television show of the same name) will air the results of his “no salt challenge” where he searched the country for a chef who loved salt so much he would find it difficult to give up.

Chef Bacigalupo, a Culinary Arts Instructor at Bay-Arenac ISD career center in Bay City, MI was chosen for the project and at my last check, he was down 21 pounds after 13 days of his experiment.

Warning: Don’t make contact more than once a week. I said persist, not pester!
