The Checkup - Teen birth rate hits record low
"When money is very tight, all of us think harder about taking risks, expanding our families, taking on new responsibilities," Brown said. "Now I know that teens may not be as savvy about money as those in their 20s and 30s - they probably don't stress over 401(k)s like the rest of us --but many teens live with financially stressed adults, and they see neighbors and older friends losing jobs and even losing houses. So they, too, feel the squeeze and may be reacting to it by being more prudent.... Maybe part of tightening our belts includes keeping our zippers closed, too!"

Dear Foursquare, Gowalla: Please Let’s Stop Pretending This Is Fun
'Use of location based services is declining.'

sales-online = "If they want to reach the majority who don’t care about making it to Mayor, they need to abandon their pretense of fun, stop pussyfooting around with silly slogans, and make their value proposition stark, simple, and profoundly unsexy: “Check in and get coupons.”"

Army colonel in Afghanistan fired for criticizing PowerPoint - Yahoo! News
Sellin isn't the first officer to lament the over-reliance on PowerPoint in the military. Last year, retired Marine Col. T.X. Hammes wrote in Armed Forces Journal that the application is "actively hostile to thoughtful decision-making" and "has fundamentally changed [military] culture by altering the expectations of who makes decisions, what decisions they make and how they make them." The PowerPoint slide above is from an actual presentation created by a Special Forces soldier serving in Iraq--it was designed both to brief superiors on counterinsurgency strategy and to mock the military's love affair with clip-art and bullet points.

For 2011, the festival wanted to return to Red Bank, but was muscled out by Red Bank's "Riverfest" for the first weekend in June.
