Your Resume: What a Potential Employer Sees

Review Resume

Over the years, I’ve looked at plenty of resumes while in management or supervisory positions. Some of them were humorous, filled with misspelled words, obnoxious fonts, unorganized information, even ridiculous accomplishments (high score in a video game – really?). Some of them were plain, and thus passed over, with boring descriptions of educational and work…

Russia, Dr. Strangelove and Deterrence Theory

eastern-aviation-tu95

  I’ve written about game theory on my blog before in the context of North Korea, but with the reports last week of a Russian TU-95 aircraft being intercepted in UK airspace carrying a nuclear payload, I think it may be a good idea to rehash the idea of deterrence theory to help explain what…

My Review of American Sniper

American Sniper Poster

It is impossible to review American Sniper without addressing the two controversies surrounding it. First, Chris Kyle has been criticized for calling Iraqis “savages” and expressing joy at killing them (he actually referred to the enemy, not all Iraqis, as savages). Michael Moore famously commented about snipers being cowards who shoot people in the back;…

The Power of A Cigar

Rocky Patel Cigar

The taste was extravagant, the odor; pungent. The feeling was as relaxing as the first shower after a long week in the field. The exact feeling I needed from my first cigar. I was deployed overseas in Ramadi, Iraq from the beginning of 2008 to 2009. I was barely 19 years old, freshly married (like…

Back in the 80’s I was a big fan of the comic strip Bloom County. In one of the comic’s subplots the main character Opus the penguin, on a quest to find his mother, finally tracks her down at a Mary Kay Makeup animal testing facility. Just as he’s about to rescue her, the “Mary…

Ignorance and Arrogance: the Charlie Hebdo Tragedy

To begin, I should state that I firmly believe if everyone in the world routinely watched the cartoon South Park, the world would be a better place. Is this because I think the world needs more sophomoric jokes and making fun of people? No, not really, but there is a very important vein to South…

Important Firearms Safety Reminders

Unfortunately, we’ve witnessed some pretty chilling headlines lately when it comes to gun safety.  Here are some examples I’ve seen in the news or that I have known about personally over the last several weeks: Sheriff accidently shoots his wife while in bed. Grandma accidently shoots self in the stomach before grandchildren arrive. Two-year-old reaches…

Who’s Better for the World: Government or Corporations?

Corporations

I recently heard a lecture on corporate responsibility and image, and this question immediately popped into my head. While the Left tries fervently to replace Religion with Government, they also indoctrinate their followers to believe that corporations are evil, greedy institutions with no goodwill for the world. But is that really true? And if so,…

Hillary, the DNC and the Crash

Depression

Have you recently wondered why the media has been reporting everything in the economy is sunshine and flowers, that we’re out of the “Great Recession,” and that things around the country are getting better, but you can’t seem to find an actual person on the street who agrees with them? I’m a financial nerd, so…
