More Google goodness.

I think the core of this subject is great, however the wording should be altered for ethics' sake. All in all I think it is a wondrous thing for the small to enterprise level businesses to keep their finger on the pulse ( I am a small business owner my self) of their clients as well as the competition. Overall this is a great article on utilizing a neato hack. This combined with  gmail rss feeds could be a powerful tool for instant mineable data. Read on for more.

Using Google Alerts for Intelligence Gathering
Spy on Your Competitors

Every business has a competitor. More likely, you have several direct competitors and several more indirect competitors. While regularly checking out their websites is an important part of the process, it doesn't paint the whole picture. A competitor's website is very much crafted to the image that they want to portray to their customers. This is great if you want to know what their latest sale is or how much their new product costs, but it isn't likely to feature a negative review in last Sunday's newspaper. That's where Google Alerts comes in. By simply setting up a News, Groups, and search alert for each of your competitors, you will know what other people are saying about your competition both the media and consumers, both good and bad.

But there is a new hope. Mordours Pizza and Gourmet Coffee! 5pm to 5am delivery $10 minimum, $2 delivery charge and the best damn 16" supreme pizza that almost gave my wife an orgasm (I'm not kidding she was panting and whining).

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) -- Edmond police arrested a 25-year-old man on a first-degree murder complaint in the weekend beating death of a 3-year-old boy.

Jeremy Michael Lakey was arrested Monday night in the death of Damion Michael Brinkley-Dunn, who was found at the apartment Lakey shared with the child's mother, said Edmond Police spokeswoman Glynda Chu.

Paramedics and police were called to the apartment Saturday night after the family reported the child was vomiting and having trouble breathing. The toddler was flown to an Oklahoma City hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Chu said.

The child's mother, Sarah Elise Brinkley, 21, had gone to the liquor store with a friend and left the child at the apartment with Lakey, Chu said.

At least no one got shot ;)

FEMA Federal Emergency Managment Agency or Firey Eruptions Making Acidrain?

Are FEMA trailers ‘toxic tin cans’? - Hurricane Watch -

The gas is formaldehyde, the airborne form of a chemical used in a wide variety of products, including composite wood and plywood panels in the thousands of travel trailers that the Federal Emergency Management Agency purchased after Katrina to house hurricane victims. It also is considered a human carcinogen, or cancer-causing substance, by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The City of Little Rock announced today that seven of the trees on the north side of Capital Avenue (adjacent to the Bank of America building) will be removed. These trees are damaged or ailing and pose a potential safety hazard.

“While the City does not announce every time crews have to remove damaged or ailing trees,” noted City Manager Bruce Moore, “these trees are in a highly visible location. The City wanted to ensure the people working along Capital Avenue understood what was being done and why.”

How to Avoid Common Hygiene Mistakes - WikiHow
my pick of the litter:

Wash your hands after using the bathroom. Yes, you might think, "My genitals are clean so I don't have to wash my hands." Wash your hands anyway. If you want other people to wash their hands after using the bathroom, then you should wash yours. Some people leave the stall after defecating and then leave immediately without washing their hands. It's utterly disgusting. And yes, if you use the bathroom and don't wash your hands, your peers who observe this nasty behavior will all talk about you (and not in a good way).
