As remarkable as their imaginations were, could William Shakespeare, Mark Twain or Charles Dickens ever have dreamt that their stories would be told on a smart phone, or in an eBook? And since international airline prices and other basic travel costs are convincing U.S. travelers to stay close to home these days, says a recent report by AAA, why not ‘escape’ to far off places without leaving your house—through digital movies, eBooks and social media.

If your boat trailer is going to spend the off-season outside exposed to the elements, Boat Owners Association of The United States has five tips to protect your investment and eliminate problems down the road: A little spray will do you: Spraying lubricants such as WD-40 on metal trailer roller assemblies, winch gears and electrical connections will keep moisture away and rust at bay. It’s also best to take care of any rust spots now on the (galvanized) metal trailer frame: sand, prime and paint. (Trust us, this will be the last thing on your mind come springtime.)

Wide range of Medicare health and drug plan options continues in 2011
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that, on average, Medicare Advantage premiums will be 1 percent lower in 2011 than today. The majority of Medicare beneficiaries, on average, enrolled in Medicare health and prescription drug plans this year should find little or no change in their benefits in 2011, in addition to seeing more drug plans offering coverage in the prescription drug coverage gap or “donut hole.” Medicare Advantage plans project that enrollment will increase by 5 percent in 2011. And, consistent with the Affordable Care Act, beneficiaries, in most Medicare Advantage plans and Original Medicare, will gain access to preventive benefits with no out of pocket costs.

Although the economy has shown gradual signs of improvement, on-the-job pressure is mounting for some supervisors, a new OfficeTeam survey suggests. Thirty percent of managers interviewed said they are more stressed at work today than they were one year ago; just 11 percent indicated work-related pressure has declined. In addition, 28 percent of respondents expect their anxiety levels to increase in the coming year, compared to 8 percent who anticipate reduced stress.

Guys, it's OK to go gray this fall ... even if you're not a mad man. "Men don't want to read 'too loud' or 'too much fashion' these days," says Tom Julian, fashion industry expert and author of the recently released "Nordstrom Guide to Men's Everyday Dressing" (Chronicle Books, $17.95).
As tailored clothing for men continues to take a cue from the TV series "Mad Men" and its 1960s suit silhouette and colors, the color palette of gray is perfect for a season "focused on understated luxury," says Julian, who sees a return of the "power suit" emerging this fall in men's wardrobes.

"If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that carbon dioxide will need to be reduced from its current 385 ppm to at most 350 ppm." These strong words come from our nation's top climatologist, James Hansen, in a recent published study.

Glancing at the title of Deborah Fallows' new book Dreaming In Chinese suggested an author who had mastered the Chinese language. At the time, it did not suggest an author who could relate that mastery in terms that the simplest reader could understand. The Chinese language, Asian languages for that matter, has always held an aura of mystery, a language too difficult for the average Westerner to understand. Fallows could have called it Chinese For Dummies and been correct!

Corporate profits are at all-time highs, and bond rates in the Treasury market are virtually at record lows. That's a good combination for stocks, and it helped trigger a 255 point rally in Wednesday's trading. What's more, a surprisingly positive read on the ISM August manufacturing report delivered a strong blow to the double-dip recession pessimism that has plagued investors for many months.
Without question, the jobs picture is going to remain cloudy.
