-Next, from CNN, an article that says for jobless lawyers, plan B can include good works (H/T Ari)

-If your company has received millions upon millions in bailout money from the government, you may want to think twice about giving huge bonuses to your employees. Now MSNBC's First Read says there may be a way those bonuses may be [t]axed away.
-Best Universities has a list of the top 100 webs tools to help you boost your resume and reputation during the recession (H/T @jimstoud)
-Jos. A Bank, as reported by the Baltimore Sun, is going to give suit refunds to customers who lose their jobs--and let you keep the suit as well (H/T Wendy).

We'll see how far this spreads but it really is good marketing.   
-Lastly, at the time when NCAA brackets go out and unproductivity is about to start, a guide from Slate on how to win your NCAA office pool. Not that we're encouraging them here, but if you were to do it, and you don't want to lose...(no money-backed guarantee if it doesn't work)
