THESE ARE THE TOP 50 MOST PATRIOTIC AMERICAN BRANDS


By web gangsta | Published:

Nothings says “AMERICA” like pure, unadulterated consumerism.

Whether it be across the country or around the world, Americans are defined by what they wear, what they use, what they drive, what they eat and drink.

Congratulations!  You have a new job!

…and you find out you hate it.  Like, really really really hate it.

Do you hate your job so much that you despise going to the office and working with the other people there, and every day is a struggle just to show up and do your assigned tasks?

And yet you continue to go through the motions, because you kinda like your assigned duties – it’s the environment and everything around that’s really not agreeing with you.

Top 5 Indicators of a Dirty Restaurant Kitchen


By web gangsta | Published:

If there’s one thing that you should make note of, it’s the FOOD SAFETY INSPECTION notices that are posted in your local restaurants.

There are only two reasons why an Inspection Score is not posted: the manager forgot to do so, or the score is embarrassing to the owner/manager.

The former is seldom likely to happen, as not having the score posted itself is a violation to be noted on the next review.  The latter is more the case.  Some locations do everything they can to hide a low score from being visible to the inquiring public, from placing it far away behind a counter – visible, but not readable; to placing it behind other paperwork on the wall – also visible, but obscured.

We do know of one fast-food chain location that was so proud of their “100 out of 100” score that they made a 2′ x 3′ poster of the inspection and placed it at the front door. No hiding from that.

The 25 Best Companies to work for – if you want a HUGE salary


By web gangsta | Published:

For some people, the higher the salary the happier they are.

They’ll jump around from company to company, spending 6 months in one place, a year in another – all in the attempt to continually “bounce up” in salary when moving from one company to another.

Why do they do that? Because we all know that staying with one company and relying on that 2%-3% annual raise – if you get even that – is not the best way to increase your retirement nest egg.

The 25 Most Trusted Companies in America


By web gangsta | Published:

Trust is one of those business attributes that a company earns over time.

Once you lose that trust, it’s hard – but not impossible – to win back.  Take Tylenol for instance – they had a horrible marketing nightmare after their scandal a few years back.  Pundits said that Tylenol would never recover from the backlash.

But what did the company do?  They fought back hard and were able to restablish that bond between themselves and the consumers.  They earned back trust.

Other companies, however, don’t learn.  They bungle their relationships with their customers and soon find themselves being left behind.  Again, once you lose that trust, it’s hard to get back.

Who are the Top Craft Beer Brewing Companies in the US?


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s nothing like sitting out on the back deck with friends and some tunes, firing up a couple of burgers and having an ice-cold beer in your hand.

For some, that means getting a case of Bud Light or Michelob Ultra or Miller Lite and setting it on ice.

For others, they brew up a special batch of their own unnamed brew, then pass along their prodigy like it’s the next thing to sliced bread.

Every successful CEO was really good at kindergarten

You’re likely familiar with the book ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN.

Sure, it’s a funny title and has almost become a cliche – but there really is a lot of truth to the topic, perhaps some item that you hadn’t taken the time to thing about recently.

What’s the one simple thing the Music Industry can do to make more money?


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s not a surprise these days – the music industry is doing everything they can to get as much money as they can from consumers and give as little as possible to the artists and songwriters.

We don’t really blame the record companies for this — business is business, after all, and there has to be some give-and-take in order to turn a profit these days.

Would you buy Thomasville Furniture from the Back of a Truck?


By web gangsta | Published:

Talking with some friends over lunch, they told us about a strange thing that happened to them at home the other night.

They were at home making dinner, when there was an unexpected knock on the door.  Outside, was a tractor trailer with the doors open wide. The side of the truck indicated that it was from Thomasville, North Carolina – home of some of the best furniture outlets around.

“We’re from Thomasville,” the man at the door said.  “Would you like to buy some of our furniture?”

Women will make the most money in these six US states


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s been often said that women earn anywhere from 60%-80% of what a man’s salary is in the exact same position.

And while that particular line item has been debunked as being a gender rule and more along the lines of what happens when you look at overall averages and neglect to take into account that women temporarily leave the workforce to raise a family for a portion of the time that men continue to earn money — there is still some truth that some women do earn less than some men in particular careers.

How many bodies can a cemetery hold?


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s one thing that’s a given in life, they say: death and taxes.

And if you’re lucky, you won’t ever have to pay taxes.

But everybody is going to die sometime, and the question you should ask is what do you plan on doing with your body when you’re gone?  Are you a burial person?  A cremation person?

Not everybody is going to have their ashes sprinked into the water on the it’s a small world ride at Walt Disney World (we know it’s happened), or packed into a firework and blown up in a celebratory display, or made into a diamond.

The Top Grossing Nightclubs and Bars for 2013


By web gangsta | Published:

Nobody likes to go to a bar or nightclub that’s empty.  Chances are, it’s empty for a reason.

And it’s likely to close soon.

There’s a reason that most nightclubs and bars operate on a cash-only basis – they may not be around long enough to warrant opening a credit card processing account with their bank.  If they even have a bank at all.

Top 10 Happiest Places to Work


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has said it before and we’ll say it again: if you’re not happy at work, then you need to find a new opportunity.

Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule.

If you know that what you’re doing now is merely temporary, then no need to rock the boat and jump ship before you’re ready to do so. And there are different ways to measure happiness – sometimes the job you’re doing now may not be making you happy per se, but it allows you to do other things that do.  Like that overnight shift may not be ideal, but it frees up your daytime hours to spend time with the kids or attend school to be able to advance to the next career choice.

What do football and underwear have in common?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch was chatting with a friend the other day who happens to run their business from home.

Part of their job involves meeting with clients, often at their homes at various times of day.  Hey, not everyone has an office job, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a job.

So they said that one thing that often happens to them — and they stressed the word “often” — was that their clients would take the meeting in their underwear.  Or their spouse would walk into the room in their tighty-whiteys.
