A good reason to hire interns, pod cast share.

I’m a fan of listing to many Podcasts, one of them is Ken Courtright’s today’s growth show.

In the episode below is one of the best arguments I’ve heard on why it’s important to hire interns at your company.


3M Worktunes AM/FM & headphone jack (product of the month)

I’ve been using my 3M Worktunes headphones AM/FM radio & headphone jack for over a month at work around some loud equipment.

I know some people use ear buds under there normal headphones however the 3M product line is a good turn key solution. They offer a bunch of different versions however I liked the combo of AM / FM radio with a conventional headphone jack and 2 AA batteries. Other combos include AM / FM with blue tooth and blue tooth only versions.

The frequency, AM/FM and channel pre sets all have audio feedback from a computerized voice. It’s a nice feature so you don’t have to take them off just to change the channel.

https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/locate is a free web site where you can find close by FM & AM radio stations near you. This can help speed up the process when setting up your presets.

What happened to the X-33 Venture Star? (video share of the month)

Yet another excellent video from Paul Shillito on the Curious Droid YouTube Channel.

I remember the X33 was all the rage when I was in High School & College. I forgot about it for quite some time.  I never knew what happened to it until I saw this video. It’s surprising that the linear aero-spike technology has not been used in all the new space craft that have been in development over the last few years.
