There has always been something inherently funny about men stripping before an audience. If you don't believe me, look at how women respond to male strippers -- they hoot and yell and jeer and cheer because it's not really erotic, it's just good nasty fun. Something about the male body and the male persona simply doesn't allow men the same freedom of sensuality and seduction that comes when a woma ... ...

Unpleasant or dissatisfied employees, poorly trained workers, rapid turnover, or a toxic work environment can all predestine your organization to failure. Here are the 5 lessons I learned about hiring from interviewing several ...
Recently, I connected with dozens of corporate executives of large and small companies in an effort to understand the benefits of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to the corporation. The question, I learned, is harder to answer than you might expect, principally because most corporate do-gooders approach their social good efforts with more of an eye toward impact on the community than on ...

Tampa StarTampa Star – Regional News for Tampa and Southwest Florida
The Tampa Star is essentially a local Tampa newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Tampa, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Tampa, Florida, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Tampa Star.

That's why Zenit, as the first Russian Premier League club, has taken measures to reduce the number of police at the stadium, replacing them with stewards from private security organisations," he said on the club website Thursday.
Stewards at Zenit's new school will be taught the laws governing matchday security and "the basics of etiquette," the club said.
There have been plans to reduce the police presence at Russian stadiums before but they have often fallen short.
In July, Premier League security head Alexander Meitin proposed "invisible security" and planned to use the pre-season Super Cup as a demonstration of how stewards could replace police but the scheme fell apart when heavily-armed police units turned up at the game despite being told they were not needed. ...
