DEALS O’ THE WEEK, TECH DEALS

SKYPE
We used Skype this past week to chat and web cam conference with a Swedish foreign exchange student. My wife was her liaison this past year. By the way, if you are ever interested in becoming a foreign exchange parent, let me know. Our neighbors, run one of the Cleveland area organizations, AFS, here in the Cleveland area. Great program.

Same type of service like Skype. I used it to talk to my cousin from England. It gives you a local number and them a local number. So it like a regular phone call. Can’t beat that.

NEW YORK TIMES
They plan to charge for access to news on their internet site in 2011. If that works, look for that trend to follow other news sites. I still love getting a newspaper. Nothing like reading it with my cup of coffee.

HAITI
Haiti suffered one of the worst natural disasters ever with upwards of up to 200,000 dead. The poorest nation in the Northern American Hemisphere, the country was already suffering. A report found that the poorest tenth of the population in Haiti earns $123 annually. Yes, annually. Makes you appreciate what ya have. Check out this pdf:

Before you make a donation to a charity, check to make sure the organization will get most of the donation to those affected instead of to the charity’s administration. At least 65% to 70% of a charity’s money should go to its programs and not administration. The site http://www.Guidestar.org reviews charities’ financial info. Also check out http://www.charitynavigator.org, http://www.bbb.org/charity, or http://www.charitywatch.org.

Americans are always generous, even with the tough times in the U.S.
These verses from Proverbs say it all:
If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.
A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
