Scented Candles Too Girly

Mancans was born out of that idea. These no-fuss wax blocks with wicks are housed in a used Campbell’s soup can, and they all smell like something the grimy, sweaty, good old fashioned American male can enjoy. Hart has sold over 500 candles, the first proceeds of which went to his new racing bike.

Pakistan’s image problem

The countries where more than two-thirds of those surveyed held mainly negative feelings about Pakistan include the Philippines (79 per cent, obviously those tableeghi trips and employment opportunities for maids are not working out), France (77), Germany (76), the US (75), Brazil (75), Australia (74), Spain (72), Italy (70), India (68), UK (68) and Canada (67).

Unskilled labor

Perhaps it’s time for a new definition.

Unskilled labor is what you call someone who merely has skills that most everyone else has.

If it’s not scarce, why pay extra?

Skills matter. The unemployment rate for US workers without a college education is almost triple that for those with one. Even the college rate is still too high, though.  On the other hand, the unemployment rate for skilled neurosurgeons, talented database designers and motivated recombinant DNA biologists is essentially zero, despite the high pay in all three fields.

Unskilled now means not-specially skilled.
