Serious Surfing
Business News
WSJ.com Logo Along with a student subscription to the Wall Street Journal comes free access to the online Interactive Edition . Regular subscribers can upgrade for a small annual fee. Check out the latest news, create custom stock charts, or read the sports page.

Careers
Even if you're not a subscriber, be sure to visit the WSJ's free career site. Oh yes, UWT Career Services went online over the summer. Their brand new site, which boasts job listing, grad school, internship, alumni, and assessment info, is a must for UWT students. Don't wait until you graduate...

Reference Tools
Oxford English Dictionary Logo If you need reference materials, the UW Reference Tools page can point you in many directions. Web tools, weather, libraries, time, maps, schools, writing tools, government,... The Electronic Reference Shelf features a more detailed selection of writing and research tools including biographical, consumer, news, financial aid, and statistics sources. It presents several encylcopedia and dictionary sites, including free access (UW only) to the mother of all dictionaries: The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) online search. It's all there - Dictionary, Etymology, and Quotations. Why spend $3,000 on the 20-volume set? Just get wired!

Oxford University Press Logo To learn more about the history or future of this lexigraphical leviathan, visit the official OED web site.. When you're ready for more light reading, dive into some other Oxford University Press titles.

Recent Research

I've had some thoughts on:
  • Information Technology Skilled Labor Shortage
  • Market Behavior in the Global Economy
  • Financial Accounting Standard Setting
  • Intellectual Capital and Knowledge Acquisition
Unfortunately, they're still only thoughts. Writing them down? Well, that's entirely different. Writer's block, I believe.... Anne Lamott's 1995 book, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, is a highly recommended weapon in this all-too- common battle. At least that's what I've heard. Her 1996 follow-up, Word by Word, may be more my speed. Reviews and shopping courtesy of Amazon.com.
