Job hunter Tim Anderson of Glendora, a manager laid off from the CVS in Camden in December, filled out at least a dozen applications for managerial positions with a variety of retailers, from Seiko to Adidas and Nike and Samsonite. He had been a manager for 15 years at Blockbuster Video, a chain that went out of business in 2013. Job seekers began lining up outside Friday at least an hour before doors opened for the 10 a. m. to 7 p. m. job fair for the Gloucester Premium... By noon the applicant number already had exceeded 1,000. There were still 500 people waiting to enter the packed fair shortly after 11 a. m. They were brought inside to wait on an upper floor of the two-floor fair at the Connector Building because... Kristen Murdica, the outlet manager, was thrilled with the response for 800 jobs that need to be filled for the Aug. Of the 90 expected retailers, 63 were at the fair talking with prospective employees, handing out applications and in some cases interviewing job seekers in smaller rooms. Simonae Witherspoon, an unemployed 19-year-old from Winslow, who was 10th in line at 8:43 a. m. , was looking for almost any job. "I need a job desperately," she said as she found a scarce seat and filled out applications for sales.
The abacus is the oldest known calculating “machine,”, dating as far back as 2700 BCE in Mesopotamia. An extremely simple and easy-to-use useful counting “machine,” the abacus was the gold standard until the 1600s when calculating machines were developed using rediscovered gear technology. I say rediscovered because around 100 BCE, the ancient Greeks, who understand complicated engineering, built an analog computer to determine astronomical positions and eclipses. From the middle of the 1600s, mechanical “computers” were built using gears, levers, and cams to derive numerical answers from user inputs. The ability to easily calculate large numbers helped drive ever larher and more complex feats of engineering, which in turn required even more powerful calculators. These mechanical computers and calculators were built all the way up through the 1960s before being displaced by electronic calculators and emerging digital computers at the beginning of the digital age. There have been recent inventions and attempts at using mechanical computers for very specific tasks that eliminate the possible software bugs. The largest (and I mean physically largest) mechanical computer that I.
Can Apple sell you a luxury fashion item at 11 o'clock in the morning. So I made an appointment at a California Apple store and wondered whether its always motivated crew could make me feel beautiful at what is normally, for me, a time of somnolent prayer. Arriving in my finest gym shorts and stained Dr. Doom sweatshirt, I was greeted by a very nice lady who swiftly decided that I was a leather man. I had already explained that the sport versions would make me feel like I was wearing an iPhone 5C and that wasn't quite my rhythm. She took me over to a colleague -- an expert, I assumed -- and asked him to unveil the leather. This was the young man who would undoubtedly inspire my passion for watches (I don't wear one) and make my wrist feel like a flower has bloomed from the fertilizer of my little hairs. He then helped me wrap the magnetized leather around my wrist. The size of the case (42mm) suited my wrist well. However, when I tried to push the button on the side and turn the little wheel (or, as neo-classical watchmaker Jony Ive calls it, the digital crown), nothing happened. This was 11:15 a. m. on a Monday, but he was acting like it was 7:30 and the garbage truck had woken him up. I was therefore left to imagine what my wrist would look like with Mickey Mouse perched upon it in a rather.
