When I first read the AP article posted at HaitiStartup.com I thought it was the most ridiculous thing the Haitian government can do right now. If they oust the prime minister Michele Pierre-Louis, Haiti will be making a giant step back politically and this type of negative news is not what Haiti needs right now. Michele Pierre-Louis is heavily supported by the U.S State Department and many other foreign nations. I think the people that need to be fired are the ones who want to do the firing. The people of Haiti need to step up and get rid of these bureaucrats by voting them out of office when the opportunity comes.

Hi! Mr Fenick Jean how are you. My name is VN residence in Brooklyn. I needed to know how do Wyclef Jean is realated to you. How do i get in touch with him? Thank you very much.Bye,bye.
Unfortunately Wyclef Jean and I am not related. I wish that wasn’t the case since I need to borrow a few dollars. Don’t worry, that’s just a bad joke. About two years ago I had an idea to create a sort of like a Wyclef Jean fan blog but that idea died. That’s as close as I’ve been to Wyclef Jean other than seeing him at a concert in Miami Beach. Oh yeah, I once tried to grow dreads like Wyclef but my hair was too dry and nappy.
Congratulations to all in the U.S Senate Finance Committee that voted in favor of reforming the nations healthcare insurance system. Montana Senator Max Baucus’s plan passed with a 14-9 vote consisting of 13 Democrats and 10 Republicans. Snowe, a Republican Senator of Maine sided with the Democrats and also ask other who apposed to take another look. It may not be perfect, but it’s definitely a start of something and better than doing nothing.
As written by Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, “So what do you think of President Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize? I’m nonplussed — I admire his efforts toward Middle East peace, but the prize still seems very premature. What has he done?”
I am an Obama supporter all the way to the bank but I thought it was very premature for him to be the winner of such a prestigious prize. There many other proven leaders, activist, and philanthropist that could have been chosen. It is too early in his presidency to hold such a heavy-weight prize.

In a brutal job market, here’s a task that might sound easy: Fill jobs in nursing, engineering and energy research that pay $55,000 to $60,000, plus benefits. Yet even with 15 million people hunting for work, even with the unemployment rate nearing 10 percent, some employers can’t find enough qualified people for good-paying career jobs.
Ask Steve Jones, a hospital recruiter in Indianapolis who’s struggling to find qualified nurses, pharmacists and MRI technicians. Or Ed Baker, who’s looking to hire at a U.S. Energy Department research lab in Richland, Wash., for $60,000 each. Read the rest of this entry →
