They are built so that they offer good protection but remain light enough so that the cornerback and safety can cover the fastest of receivers. Similar to linebackers though, the cornerbacks and safeties are normally in the top of the rankings when it comes to tackles so proper fitting Shoulder pads are imperative.

Apartment living is great. I have fantastic neighbors, I pay a reasonable price and I don’t have a lawn to mow or plumbing and electric to maintain myself. Frankly, I enjoy apartment living more than I could ever imagine enjoying living in a home that I owned and had to keep pumping money into just to maintain the investment. I really have trouble understanding how folks can both own a home and have nice things like a car, major appliances, cable, and the occasional steak for dinner.


Frankly, I’d say the only bad thing about apartment living is hauling stuff up several flights of stairs to get it into your apartment. That inconvenience means that when I get a bed or a dresser I hold onto it for years in an effort to not have to do all that heavy lifting. This is triple true for my heavy major appliances. Why would I go through the torture of replacing my Fridge when I can simply get a Frigidaire repair person to come take care of the old one? Who would go through the pains of getting a new oven or dishwasher when there is readily available and affordable Proboise Appliance Repair? Not me, man.

Since the Carmelo rumor’s legs didn’t strengthen we’ve got a new and more interesting deal, in my opinion, to mull over today. Check out the noise coming out of Bay Area this morning:

Joe Dumars, the Pistons’ president of basketball operations, gave notice after losing the Eastern Conference finals that no one on his veteran-laden team would be safe, and the source said Detroit is willing to divest itself of longtime stars Rasheed Wallace and Chauncey Billups.

Wallace, like Davis an unrestricted free agent after ‘08-09, would give the Warriors their best true power forward since Chris Webber’s first stint in 1993-94 and has 3-point range that coach Don Nelson would love.

Since Wallace and Billups will combine to take home nearly $25 million in 2008-09, the Warriors would need to add more salary ballast to Davis in order to make the salary-cap numbers work.

One possibility in that role would be forward Al Harrington. A source close to the 10th-year forward said he is currently leaning toward requesting a trade from the Warriors this summer, although he will not make a final decision until after the draft.


I like this deal. If we have to part with guys this deal sounds fun. Baron is very similar to Chauncey in that he’s a big bodied dominant guard. I think Baron is a little better going to the rim than Billups. Chauncey may have the better long range stroke, but Davis is no slouch. Plus, this gives our PG of the future, Rodney Stuckey, one more prime time floor general to learn from.

If you’re wondering…
Here are some things that you may want to consider:

(1) How many résumés did you send?
Jobseekers tend to send résumés to one or two companies and expect something to happen immediately. That’s a common mistake.

First, most companies put out hiring announcements months before they need to hire. While you’re desperate, waiting for a call, there’s a chance that the company (you sent your résumé to) is just taking it easy. They’re not in a rush to hire.

Second, if you need a job soon, why not apply to at least 15 companies? Imagine, if two of those companies decide to hire you after the interview, you still get the privilege of choosing one.

By not sending more of your résumé, you’ve imposed a limit on yourself. But if you’ll submit more, you’ll have more options.

(2) Apply for a job that fits you. (work you are good at)
Putting in your résumé “any job available” is not a wise idea. The company you want to work for knows what kind of talent they’re looking for.  So should you.
(3) The résumé shouldn’t be all about you. 
It’s about the job you’re applying for. Show the employer how you fit into the job position. If given the chance to work for the company, how will you contribute?

(4) Is your résumé presentable?
People will always judge a book by its cover. So will employers judge you by the kind of résumé you submit. After a quick look, they’ll decide if you’re worth giving the ‘air time’ for an interview.

  • Check for correct grammar and spelling – attention to detail is important.
  • Use quality paper – To stand out from a stack of résumé, print it on premium paper. Don’t pinch a penny in exchange for not getting a monthly income.
  • Attach a photo that’s taken by a professional photographer. Don’t crop your head shot from one of your barkada’s photo.
  • Keep your design clean and elegant. Avoid adding unnecessary elements that will add clutter. (No floral design or glitters please)
  • Instead of just listing your previous job title, emphasize the contribution you made from your last employment.
  • Remember, the purpose of a résumé is not to get you a job, but to make yourself interesting so that you can get an interview.


(5) Consider working for a small business owner.
Unlike a big corporation, small business owners conduct the interview themselves. They are more inclined to chat longer and they tend to decide based on gut feel.

If you’re trustworthy enough, they might even promote you as ‘kanang kamay’.

(6) Get more experience.
Work for free. Did I just hear someone say, “What?… Free?”

Yes, free.

The best way to convince an employer to hire you is to show them what you can do. Sometimes just referring to the résumé won’t do you justice. But if they can see how well you work with others, they’ll be more than willing to hire you as soon as a job position is available.

Even if they don’t, you can still add the work experience into your credentials.

(7) Find a mentor.
Who do you want to emulate? Maybe an uncle who runs a business? Or a family friend who is also an executive in a reputable company?

Ask him to be your mentor. Let him bring you around and teach you. Ask him how he started. Listen to his advice. If he sees you eager enough, he might help you get started. Also companies look most importantly to improve employee attendance so be punctual and dedicated.

(8) Get rid of the ‘entitlement’ attitude.
I’ve met jobseekers who thinks that the government or private companies owe them a job. (I’m sure you don’t think this way!) They don’t owe us anything.

It’s our duty to look for a job.  We are responsible for our own future.

Now, the pointers above are just some tips on how to get a job-interview.  The interview itself is another matter.
Apply what you’ve learned here. And then go learn some more.
