Is this for real? We had a lot of people don the ‘Stache throughout the past few months, many local news anchors, NFL and ESPN Commentators…but now, we have Kim Kardashian staching. Not sure how this slipped through the search radar, but I found a blog post and photo from February 27th. (She tweeted it I guess) Say what you want, we need Jags fans from all over!
Khan You Dig It? I Khan.
I saw this on Facebook reshared by Gary Sharma of GarysGuide from Robin Lim, though I’m not sure where it originated.
A reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan to a pretty girl seeking a rich husband
A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:
Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?
… I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here.
I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above.
You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.
My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?
I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?
Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.
I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:
1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan:
Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.
Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”.
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”.
Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.
Hope this reply helps.
J.P. Morgan CEO
Facebook will be switching all brand pages to the new Timeline view this Friday. While this is a big change for many, a little understanding will make the transition that much easier. As announced at the Facebook Marketing Conference (#fmc) they called it “Mission control for your business on Facebook” and with the new platform, this holds true.
In no confusing terms, here’s a brief run down on some of the new phrases and terms you’ll need to know and understand for the transition to Facebook Timeline.

Google’s shift to semantic search will be a game changer if successful, and businesses need to leverage on it
This week the engineers behind Google search announced that the engine is to undergo its most radical makeover to date. And the overhaul could be transformational, both for users and businesses.
Google is now going to start fusing semantic search technology with its classic keyword search system.
SXSW’s Music Festival has been a historical springboard of exposure for thousands of bands to record labels and publishing companies. But the world has changed, musicians can’t rely just on album sales or touring alone…you need to diversify your career if you want to make money in the music business world. SXSW has expanded and with the interactive and film components as well as music, there’s a lot of people to throw your name at.
So last year to help promote the wealth of musical creativity that exists within the Syracuse University community, Bandier and the iSchool teamed up to create the SUxSW Mixtape. This mixtape was distributed and promoted online through social networks, and also via QR download cards passed out throughout SXSW. (Also featured on a number of blogs, radio shows, and even Syracuse.com)
The success was huge. We received tracks from more than 50 students and alums, and in the end the Mixtape had more than 2,000 downloads from more than 50 countries!
Because of last year’s success, we’re doing it again. So we need any and all CURRENT AND FORMER SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS who are pursuing a music career in some way shape or form to submit your act’s track to our mixtape. We will be doing the same thing as we did last year, passing out QR codes with a Bandcamp download.
Working with Producer/Composer and Newhouse alum Nick Cicero (Konvict, G.O.O.D. Music, Def Jam, Universal, Ford Motor Company, A&E and more) we will be accepting submissions from current and former students who want their band (or music) featured on the compilation. Starting now and ending March 6th, you can submit up to (but no more than) 3 MP3’s to email@example.com
The coolest part about this promotion is that we create a Syracuse-branded mixtape in just under a week that showcases the diversity of Syracuse’s music scene to the entire world. Wouldn’t you want to be a part of that?
