Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (23)


Quote of the day:
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. 
-Aesop

Four men who foiled a suspected terror attack on a Amsterdam to Paris train have been awarded France's top honour. French President Mr Hollande presented three Americans -Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos, Anthony Sadler and Briton Chris Norman with the Legion d'honneur at the Elysee Palace.

An audiovisual and IT company has hired 28-year-old, Karrie Kemeling who quit her sales job, and later took an unconventional approach to applying for a job. After getting tired of sending applications over the internet without replies, she took her search to the street, standing at an intersection in New York with a sign that read "Not Homeless but Hungry for Success!! Take a Resume." According to her, an executive in the company had heard about her passing out her resumes on the street and sent someone to get one before following up with her.

  1. It's ridiculous that college graduates are having such a difficult time now. I guess a college degree is becoming like a high school degree? So many people get it now, it holds no real value?

  2. And you have them lined up in order of relevance. Excellent. I love that beach house. What a nice week that would be. Some good books and an easy chair.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  5. Courage and innovation, as exemplified by your first two mentions, are always inspiring!
    The house, on the other hand, would inspire long, slow thoughts... always fulfilling. =)

  6. Good Sir, "acts of Kindness" is how I was raised to treat others ...
    "Chivalry" is all but dead .. and you seldom even get a "thank you"... but, we will continue to do kind deeds for and unto other till I die.... just part of my "nature"... often even to "rude" people

  7. What a unique way to get a resume out there! Definitely shows outside of the box thinking. I also love celebrating people who put themselves out there to save and protect others. Bravo!

  8. Hero is an overused term, but in the case of those four men, it is right.

  9. Such a cool way to search for a job ;)
    Well done to the girl for the clever idea!

  10. We've heard about the brave men stopping the terrorist attack on the train while we were on holiday. Well desvered medals!
    The holiday home reminds me of the house that was used in "'The Ghost Writer", a film I reviewed here on my blog a couple of years ago - there is a picture on my blog post of the place, wonder if it reminds you of that holiday home, too.

    As for handing out my CV on a street corner, I don't think I'd go that far. I'd be afraid of my personal details getting into the wrong hands.

  11. Those guys who thwarted the would-be killer deserved the medals and more. I hope there are others who would be just as brave.

  12. Love the "heroes". They are invited to come to Amsterdam!

  16. The news from Austria is so bad I think I need all the inspiration I can get.

  17. You chose the right items to inspire me.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  18. "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. "

    A great choice for quote of the day.

    All the best Jan

  19. An interesting and inspiring trio of stories.

    It's a shame more builders/architects don't embrace the natural ways to cut down on heating/cooling/lighting costs, etc.

  20. People of courage and deserving of honour. The vacation house is very unique!

    ReplyDelete
  21. My choice? The beach house for the weekend. When is checkin?

    ReplyDelete
  22. All great things happening to people who stepped out to help others or who took a chance themselves. I also read of a college grad trying to sell her degree on ebay for the amount of $ she took to earn it, unfortunate.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Those three guys on the train did a great job!

    And she tried a different, risky approach, and it worked.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The resume girl is a go getter. I love her approach and it certainly paid off for her.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You chose three prime examples to illustrate your point. The brave young men who saved the lives of so many people deserve all the honors they are receiving. The young woman who made her own luck is someone for others to admire. And the vacation home is beautiful.

  26. The concept of handing out resumes on the street is a daunting one, so I take my hat off to her! :)

  33. The first story had me in goosebumps. Good men! This post made my day, Blogoratti!

    I like reading the news on your blog. Good vibes only! Just yesterday I opened up a mainstream online news portal and I got so overwhelmed with all the negativity, I couldn't stand it for more than a few seconds.

    Good work here, do keep it up!
