Most of the world’s current economic problems could have been avoided if the people that mattered only paid attention to Proper material handling. The term subprime, by itself, refers to loans that are delinquently served. The financial markets all over did not practice diligent handling of those accounts and did not implement measures that could have stopped it from growing to uncontrollable levels. Had experts in this matters been listened to, a few years ago, the global economy would have continued enjoying steady growth. Ces’t la vie.

Looking for a retirement business, I visited a entreprise expo in search for a good franchise opportunity. I saw food cart franchises that costs an arm and a leg but surprisingly low opportunities in the same industry also abound. And with gas prices becoming a big headache for most people nowadays, it was not surprising to see gas saving solutions among the hot businesses in the entire expo. I hope that people will take gas saving seriously. Most countries are dependent on oil imports and being able to control a country’s oil requirement is a good solution in the long term.

The introduction of LCD HDTV has pushed down the prices of current television sets, DVD Players and other appliances. Factories realize that they have to be able to make the most out of their soon to become obsolete manufacturing equipments hence the bargain prices. In my opinion, it won’t be long before the prices of Blu rays and the most expensive gadgets to go down. Technology is now moving at a much faster rate and trying to keep up with the latest gadgets can be very costly.

This “Pinoy Dream Academy – Little Dreamers” may have good intentions but the sight of a lot of little kids being voted out in front of a live audience on national television makes me surf the net for a portable oxygen concentrator. Kids getting a dose of life’s harsh realities is a little too much, at this point. I hope the organizers and dreaming parents should carefully consider such repercussions.
While having a late dinner with the person supervising my fence installation, I cannot help but look at the television from time to time. The program being played is the “Pinoy Dream Academy – Little Dreamers” It is a singing contest for aspirants aged 6 to 10 years old. Most of the kids are exceptionally good but their voices, of course, can still be expected to mature. The road to perfection is still long.
