Ten Things You Should Know About the Nano (would you buy this car?????)

1. Does it really cost Rs. 100,000? (About $2,000)?
Yes, but that's for the base model, without tax. The higher-end versions will cost more.

2. What makes it so cheap?
It is made with less material than other cars, so it costs less to produce. Tata Motors, headed by Ratan Tata, pictured here, asked every one of its components makers to redesign their parts to minimize their weight and cost, but still perform well.

3. Does it have enough power to pass a truck on the highway?

More women needing cash go from jobless to topless

CHICAGO – As a bartender and trainer at a national restaurant chain, Rebecca Brown earned a couple thousand dollars in a really good week. Now, as a dancer at Chicago's Pink Monkey gentleman's club, she makes almost that much in one good night.

The tough job market is prompting a growing number of women across the country to dance in strip clubs, appear in adult movies or pose for magazines like Hustler.

Some Rich Districts Get Richer as Aid Is Rushed to Schools

RANDOLPH, Utah — Dale Lamborn, the superintendent of a somewhat threadbare rural school district, feels the pain of Utah’s economic crisis every day as he tinkers with his shrinking budget, struggling to avoid laying off teachers or cutting classes like welding or calculus.

Just across the border in Wyoming, a state awash in oil and gas money, James Bailey runs a wealthier district. It has a new elementary school and gives every child an Apple laptop.

Proposed 20% state cutback angers charter school chiefs

Toledo charter school leaders said Monday their schools will face devastating effects if Gov. Ted Strickland's proposed 20 percent cut to charter school funding is approved.

Renee Marazon, superintendent of the Maritime Academy of Toledo, said the reduction could force the school to close its doors.

"If I lose 20 percent of my funding, that translates into $500,000 a year. I cannot afford that," Ms. Marazon said during a news conference at the school at 1000 Monroe St.

You pay for the service the City provides

I could not believe that someone in the City said this, but they did:

"People think they're paying [taxes] to get every street plowed and salted, but they're paying for the service we provide."

The City of Toledo is accepting resumes for all positions


There was a good sized ad in the Toledo Blade today stating that the City of Toledo is accepting resumes. Huge list of positions/departments/areas.

Makes you wonder if they are getting resumes on hand for scab workers, in case the union decides to strike?

I'm sure in this economy, they'll have no shortage of resumes or applications.

Toledoan of the Year 2007??

I was just on the city's website and noticed an ad for Toledoan of the Year 2007 award nominations. I was kinda thrown off, thinking maybe they put the wrong year. Reading further it says to nominate somebody who made a difference in the year 2007. By the time the awards are announced this summer, 2008 will almost be half over. I don't get it....
