  • 6 worst place to holla at women

    Posted by Jake Kelly

    People always want to know where can they meet “good” people. Sorry, this post is the complete opposite of that. The fact of the matter is there are good people around us practically everywhere we go, it’s just a matter of being aware and not letting silly red flags (i.e. I don’t like his shoes) skew your vision.

    As much as I wish the random street "holla" would get replaced with legitimate conversation, it's not going away any time soon. Actually, speaking when you see someone you find attractive isn't that bad of a thing it's really how and where you holla. So today I'm going to address the fellas on inappropriate places to "holla." Ladies, if you agree feel free to chime in…

    WHEN SHE’S IN THE GYM

    If I know one thing about women it's that they hate being approached when they don't feel they're looking their best, and being all sweaty after the gym or just wearing sweats on the way to the gym are usually one of those I-don't-feel-sexy moments. However, if I know one thing about men it's that when women are dressed down and alone that they're the least "intimidating" to us. I for one find a (the right) woman in sweats sexy. Not only does it highlight her booty, if a woman can catch my eye dressed down she must have it going on even more when she's dolled up. #ThinkAboutIt

    Still, I wouldn't recommend hollering at the gym, fellas. First of all (most) women are there to workout (others are there for a fashion show) so the last thing she needs is some fool trying to kick it while she's on the treadmill. Secondly, like I said earlier, she's probably in sweats or spandex and doesn't feel her sexiest despite how good her booty looks to you. Thirdly, if her goods are on full display because of her skintight clothes and you’ve been ogling her while she was doing jumping jacks, she may feel you're only after her body. All in all, the gym or pool is a very awkward place to holla because you’re both half-naked. I'd rather give a woman her space and try to catch her at the exit once her workout’s complete and the sweat glands aren't working overtime.

    WHEN SHE’S AT WORK

    This goes for people who work together and for those trying to holla at someone while at their place of business. Sexual harassment cases are big deals these days and a lot of companies don't play that. While some offices are like extended versions of high school, generally speaking, hitting on the new girl is a big no-no. Yeah, she's cute but she's also your co-worker. In the event that things don't work out because you hardly know her now you've got an ex that hates you that you have to see every damn day. ThatsABadLook.com.

    As for hollering at someone while they're at work that can be tricky too. One, they're there to provide customer service and might be getting paid commission so their friendliness might not actually mean they're into you as much as they’re just trying to get the sale. Also, some bosses might frown upon their employees fraternizing with customers so you could potentially be getting them in trouble and ultimately costing them money. Also, if you're flirting while there’s a bunch of people on line behind you, you either have a great audience for getting shot down or a bunch of angry people waiting to be served. Keep it short and sweet, slip her your number and keep it moving. If she's feeling you she'll call if not, oh well, I hope you really like your purchase.

    WHEN SHE’S AT THE HOSPITAL/DR. OFFICE

    Uhm, you're both at a medical facility presumably to get something treated. A waiting room doesn’t sound like the sexiest place to be trying to holla. The million-dollar question in my mind is: What exactly is she here for? And she’s probably thinking the same thing. Besides that, if she's there for a mysterious “rash” I doubt she's thinking about going out on a date with you next weekend. Just like if I'm dealing with a 105 fever on New Years, the last thing I'm thinking about is hollerin' at some chick.

    Although once I started feeling better in the ER I did start scoping to see if there were any hot nurses running around. Sadly, there weren’t. Even if there were, though, hot nurses are off limits when you’re a patient. They have way too much access to your charts and medical history. Not that I have anything to hide, but I'd much rather have her focused on getting me better than digging all through my medical charts. I can always get another chick to dress up like a sexy nurse later.

    WHEN SHE’S DRIVING

    Seeing a hot girl the next car over is not like seeing a hot girl on the street. You just can't stop her and try to spark a conversation. Y'all are both in control of two vehicles and probably have other cars behind you. Unless she's trying to pull over, which I doubt, your chances of getting the number are slim to none. Also, turning down your music when you're speaking would help, too. Oh, and please don’t follow her in your car that’s borderline stalkerish and a bad way to start off a relationship.

    Now, if you're driving and she's on foot the whole "can I talk to you for a second" bit is a tad played out. Most women with class don't make a habit of walking up to strange men's car windows like a common streetwalker. Also, you should be keeping your eyes on the road and not every chick on the sidewalk because the last thing you or your game need is to run into a light pole when you're trying to stunt for a chick. Good news, I just saved you a bunch of money on car insurance, playboy.

    WHEN SHE'S WITH BOYFRIEND/ANOTHER MAN

    I don’t care if a woman is with her brother or her priest, it’s the ultimate form of disrespect to approach a woman while she’s with another man. You have no clue of the dynamic between the two of them and you’re basically emasculating the other brother, regardless of whether or not he’s a suitor or not. I mean, even if a woman and I were truly just friends I’d still feel a way of some random dude just walked up and tried to kick game. Like, seriously, you don’t see me sitting/standing here, dude? How you know I’m not hitting this—or at least trying to hit?

    A lot can be said for body language and you can make assumptions about the dynamic between a man and woman, but you never really know as an outsider looking in. If a woman that happens to be with another brother catches your eye and you feel the urge to holla, at the very least acknowledge the man first and ask if it’s his woman. If he says yes, simply compliment him on being a lucky man and keep it moving. If he says no, the gentlemanly thing to do would be to ask permission to engage her in conversation. Anything else would be uncivilized.

    WHEN SHE’S IN THE COLD

    There’s a time and place for everything and the cold is never the spot for hollerin’. Just like my list of the 10 things every bachelor should have in his pad it’s all about being comfortable when engaging a woman for the first time. So having her stand out in the cold while you try to spit game doesn’t cut it. If you happen to see an attractive woman during the heart of winter chances are she’s focused on getting from point A to B as fast as possible.

    It doesn’t matter how cute you think you are she’s not trying to freeze her butt off for some random dude on the snow-lined streets. If you’re skilled enough to grab her attention in the cold why not try to dip into a nearby store or something to continue the conversation, she more likely to warm up to you when she’s actually warm as opposed to freezing to the point her nose turns red like Rudolph.

    Do you go to the gym to look cute or to actually workout? Do you feel self-conscious in your workout clothes? Do you think it’s a good idea to flirt with someone you work with or while someone is at their job? Do you think it’s tacky for a woman to talk to a guy through a car window? Would you feel disrespected if someone trued to kick it to a friend of the opposite sex right in front of you? What’s the worst place someone has tried to holla at you? Are there certain places or times that you never want someone to approach you? What would you add to the list?

    Steven Tyler and American Idol have parted ways permanently but the Aerosmith frontman is happy to explain where it all went wrong.

    Apparently Fox pressured him to become the a-hole judge. The scathing Simon cowell fill-in, if you will.

    Steven prefers a gentler approach. He revealed:

    "The show's about kids and what you do to nurture their talent. They wanted me to take the p**s out of the kids and I don't have that in me. That's not what I'm about. That's more about that other guy [Simon]. Not me."

    A 32-year-old woman who has already fought cancer twice faces yet another battle after both her hands and feet were amputated following a rare infection caught from her puppy.

    Hannah Rinehart has been in a medically-induced coma at Northside Hospital in Cumming, Georgia since July 3, after the bacteria ravaged her body and left her with a 103 degree fever.

    Doctors were forced to amputate the nurse's hands and feet last Thursday after her body went into septic shock and she suffered circulatory problems.

  • Best and worst jobs of 2012

    Posted by Jake Kelly

    Here's the list of the top 5 Best Jobs for 2012.

    1. Software Engineer
    2012 pay: $88,142
    2011 pay: $87,140
    Change in pay: +1.1%

    Software engineer has been the No. 1 job for two years running. You can sum that up in two words, Lee said: “Technology revolution.”



    2. Actuary
    2012 pay: $88,202
    2011 pay: $87,204
    Change in pay: +1.1%

    Actuaries analyze the financial costs of risk and uncertainty, using mathematics, statistics and financial theory to assess the risk that a particular event will occur, according to the BLS.

    There is always demand for risk analysts across all industries – actuary has made the top 10 for four years running -- but the uncertainty that came with the financial crisis, and economic havoc it wreaked on companies, juiced demand for this profession even more.


    Resources Manager
    2012 pay: $99,102
    New to the list for 2012

    At first glance, HR manager being the No. 3 job was the biggest surprise of the best list, but when you think about employment trends, it makes sense: There are some high-skilled jobs in high-demand fields like health care and information technology that are in demand and there aren’t enough skilled workers to fill them, Lee said.

    Add to that the fact that a lot of skilled HR managers are retiring and fewer young people pursue human resources as a career and you’ve got a perfect storm for one of the best jobs in America this year.

    And, because it requires a qualified HR person to be able to spot and hire these skilled workers, HR managers get paid, on average, just shy of six figures.

    4. Dental Hygienist
    2012 pay: $68,109
    2011 pay: $67,107
    Change in pay: +1.5%

    Dental hygienists clean teeth and examine patients for oral diseases such as gingivitis. They are increasingly doing more of the dentist’s work. To be a dental hygienist typically requires an associate’s degree in dental hygiene.

    Perhaps a reflection of our declining dental hygiene as a society or the fact that fewer people are pursuing work as a dental hygienist – or both – employment in this field is expected to grow by 38 percent between 2010 and 2020, according to the BLS.

    “It’s a lot like computer programmers – there’s demand and not enough supply,” Lee said.

    5. Financial Planner
    2012 pay: $104,161
    2011 pay: $101,164
    Change in pay: +3%

    As Baby Boomers get older, they not only need health care – they need financial advice for retirement. And with the stock-market gyrations that resulted from the financial crisis, that demand is even greater.

    “People are realizing that they haven’t made the investments they need to make,” Lee said. “Even the savviest investors got hosed. It was a bit of a warning call that they need someone to help them with their investments.”

    Not only is there demand for financial planners, but there are fewer people going into this profession than the demand is requiring, Lee said.



    Here's the list of the top 5 Worst Jobs for 2012.

    . Lumberjack
    2012 pay: $32,144 
    2011 pay: $32,109 
    Change in pay: flat 

    Lumberjack has always been one of the worst jobs — like dairy farmers, you’re working outside whatever the weather, in dangerous conditions, with low pay in an industry that took a huge hit during the recession (hello housing bust) and is increasingly being automated. 

    That being said, you’ll find a lot of lumberjacks who say they do it for their love of the outdoors and that they take great pride in their work. 

    “I talked to one lumberjack who said, ‘I love my job! I’m outdoors,’” Lee explained. “I said, ‘But isn’t it dangerous?’ He replied: ‘Oh sure, I’ve broken my leg twice, my collar bone and lost my pinky finger. But it’s no big deal. Just part of the job,’” Lee said. 

    “How many of us would give up our pinky finger for our job?” Lee quipped. 

    2. Dairy Farmer
    2012 pay: $33,119 
    2011 pay: $32,114 
    Change in pay: flat 

    Dairy farmers weren’t in the 10 worst last year so they not only shot into the bottom 10 but they debuted at No. 2. 

    First, it’s a low-paying job. Second, it’s very dangerous working with large animals such as cows. “Moving the animals, [farmers] could get their feet crushed,” Lee explained. “And there are more fatalities in dairy farming than ever before.” 

    Plus, the working conditions are tough — not only the obvious manure issue (though talk to a dairy farmer and he’ll tell you he doesn’t even smell it anymore) but also the fact that you have to get out there whether it’s 10 degrees or 100 degrees. 

    And the job outlook is tough: Dairy farming is increasingly becoming a corporate business, which is squeezing the little guys, Lee said. 

    3. Enlisted Military Personnel
    2012 pay: $36,261 
    New to the list for 2012 

    Enlisted military personnel is new to the list but not because it suddenly became a tough job. It was hard to get solid data on the profession, according to CareerCast. 

    “It’s incredibly dangerous. You’re on the front lines and you’re responsible for others. The stress level is extremely high,” Lee said. 

    Plus, the hiring outlook is now weaker than it was at the peak of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

    4. Oil Rig Worker
    2012 pay: $32,132 
    2011 pay: $32,143 
    Change in pay: flat 

    You might be surprised to find any job in the booming oil industry on a “worst” list but these guys are the entry-level spot on the oil totem pole. Their jobs are dangerous: working on oil rigs, often far away from home or offshore, in bad weather and dangerous working conditions. And they don’t share in the wealth of the industry because they are typically paid very low.

    “It’s clearly the most dangerous job in the industry,” Lee said. “The fatality rate is very high.”

    One bright spot is this category climbed up three notches on the list, after being the absolute worst job in America for two years running. 

    “With the surge in the energy industry, the hiring outlook improved enough to nudge them higher,” Lee explained. 

    “It’s dangerous and doesn’t pay well but many people thought, ‘Well, at least it’s a career where I can retire young,’” Lee said. “Now, you can’t even guarantee that you’ll maintain your job, nevermind retire from it,” Lee said. 
     
    5. Newspaper Reporter
    2012 pay: $35,275 
    2011 pay: $34,275 
    Change in pay: +3% 

    Newspaper reporter has always been a high-stress, low-pay job, but add to that the explosion of online and mobile news and newspaper reporters make a hard landing on the “worst” list.

    “The newspaper industry is going through a full retrenchment. There are mergers, bankruptcies and layoffs everywhere,” Lee said. “Point to a newspaper that hasn’t had layoffs – not in this country!” he said. 

    With the move to digital, the pressures have mounted on newspaper reporters. “They are now required to tweet and do video as well as write articles,” Lee said. “They’re asked to do much more for less — and the pay is not good.”
