sounds like you are not employed, otherwise your employer will buy health insurance for you. how long are you in the US for? do you have insurance before you came to US? will it still cover you now?

perhaps you should talk to your auto insurance agent first...

In my experience, your job is most "secure" if you are good at it. And you are best in your job if you love it. So I'd argue that "doing what you like to do" actually is to some amount good advice for job security.

I haven't yet read it, but I've heard a lot of good things about the book "My Programming Job Went to India" - might be worth a look for you...

i slightly disagree.

"secure" is all about "winning the competition against your competitor". what really matter is not "how good are you", it is "how good are you compared to your competitor".

"doing what you like to do" imply that you don't like change. it may work out, it may not.

however, we all have destiny, no matter how hard you try. so "doing what you like to do" may not be the solution, but it gives your peace of mind.

learning languages is a waste of time and effort. God should have created human with only one language.

image all the wonderful things you can do with the time wasted on learning foreign languages. well, you may end up just sleeping, even that is good, you will live healthier and longer

Sennheiser RS130, costs $100

that is 100 * ( 1 + 0.1 ) ^ 30 = $1,750 retirement money.

do you really want a headset now instead of a hp Digital Entertainment Center

think again

What is the better headset, Sennheiser or Plantronics?

My uses are:

(1) Listening to music on a computer.

(2) Getting the *BEST* quality voice transmission (on both ends), while using a chat program, such as Skype or MSN Instant Messenger.

This is what I've been considering:

Sennheiser RS130

Is there a product that's better than Sennheiser and Plantronics?

Kindest regards,

I went to an Indian Buffet the other day. Food is pretty good. I noticed there were 2 kinds of ygurt: yogurt with spice, yogurt with mint, spice.

they look attractive, so i decided to have a cup of each. but as soon as i put first spoon in mouth, i almost spill out. i try the other yogurt, they are the same. they taste nothing in common with yogurt. is there anyone out there can appreciate the taste?
