Private aerospace companies and NASA have been developing space taxis to replace the US Space Shuttles that retired their last ship in July 2011. As of August 2014, America now has three companies producing space taxis to shuttle both supplies and humans back and forth between Earth and the International Space Station.

NASA partnered with an initial 63 aerospace companies before July 2011 in order to continue development of important aerospace developments in the public and private sectors. The American Space Agency then chose six companies to design proposed space taxis to replace the US Space Shuttle and to eliminate dependency on Russian shuttles.

From among the work of six top companies, NASA chose three firms to further develop the aerospace vehicles America needs/ These three big-name companies are:

  1. SpaceX under Elon Musk,
  2. Sierra Nevada, and
  3. Boeing.

The development that the Unbited States needs at this time is one that reduces the time of the journey to the ISS. The US Shuttles took about 2.5 days to reach the space station, but Russian shuttles, launched from a higher latitude, require only 6 hours of flight time. A possibility exists in a northern US State and aerospace jobs will increase with time at that location.

The new film  ITHACA is based on William Saroyan’s novel and manuscript of The Human Comedy. based in stories of his youth during World War II in California. Filming is in Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia during the summer of 2014.

Director Meg Ryan chose Virginia over Ohio, which is to the northwest and not very California-like.

The amount of the Virginia Film Tax Credit awarded the movie production depends, in part, on how many local people are hired, so watch newspapers and websites for advertisements of speaking and more minor parts in ITHACA.

One of the songs the movie soundtrack was written by John Mellencamp and performed by Leon Redbone.

Space Taxis and other vehicles of the future.

Space Taxis and other vehicles of the future.

As the United States adds additional jobs in the 2010s, the variety of work available is changing for the better. Many new jobs are connected with the growing aerospace industry that will take us to the moon, asteroid fields, and Mars very soon and as early as 2018.

This is all true despite political ideologues that claim our space program is dead – killed by other political ideologues, fact.

It’s not dead, it has switched to the private sector and universities in large part, but NASA is still at work, with plans for 20 years into the future.

Did you  know that SpaceX company has already replaced the obsolete US Space Shuttles that last flew in July 2011? The Dragon2 Capsule is the replacement. Now, we must decrease the time of transit from Earth to the ISS. Russia can send a shuttle to the space station in just six hours, so we need to match that time.

Did you know that Google and/or Google execs have started and expanded the Asteroid Mining Business (2012) the Lunar Lander Contest (early finishers done in 2013), time-sharing telescopes for the American public, and expansions farther into space ventures through partnerships with people Kelli Sir Richard Branson, James Cameron, the NASA Commercial Crew (private businesses), Buzz Aldrin, spokespeople  Brent Spiner and Robert Picardo and etc.?

It is an exciting time!

A Certain Attitude Helps in Writing Your Resume!

Preparing an effective resume can be more pain-free than you ever thought possible

Maintain a positive and determined outlook can kill off all those feelings of intimidation at the prospect of putting yourself down on paper.

Some job seekers fear making a mistake on a resume and are unable to even begin the process, but the miracle of word processing makes it easy to change wording and rearrange resume sections — changes can be easily made, and no one is the wiser.

You never need to feel the obligation of allowing anyone to look at the resume or any document until you have completed your writing. At that point, you can ask a trusted friend to read it over to see whether it makes sense and looks good.

Your resume is an introduction to a company and the boss. It is also a commercial for what you – a valuable product – can do for that company.

The US Department of Labor officials state in their manual of job that the job titles Claims Adjuster, Claims Examiner, and Claims Investigator at the entry level require only a high school diploma.

In the real world, employers prefer job candidates for these positions that possess bachelor’s degree or at least insurance-related work experience or some sort of training certificate. However, not all employers are i this category and about  3 or 4% of these jobs overall don’t require a college degree. That sounds like few jobs,  but it amounts to about 1,000 openings in the USA.

Companies that do hire people with high school diplomas and offer on-the-job training OJT are listed at the link below for quick reference.The largest number of total job listings in these job titles that do not require a college degree fall under Claims Investigators.

The Big Ohio River Becomes a National Scenic Byway in 1996, one of the 14 National Scenic Byways first chosen in the United States.

This honor gives the river a distinction not unlike that of being one of the 13 Original Colonies.

The Ohio River passes through 14 different counties between Indiana and Pennsylvania. In West Virginia and Kentucky, it has sometimes been called Big Sandy River.

The place farthest to the south in the state is a city called South Point. At the western end is a GHOST TOWN and at the eastern end is the place where a famous criminal died. In between are incredible archaeological and historical sites, concerts and other entertainment venues, sports, fishing, places to relax, paddle boat cruises, hiking & biking, great diners and restaurants, museums, art galleries, and a series of bridges to Kentucky and West Virginia natural wonders.
