Fact or Fiction?
There is a job for milking a snake. Fact or Fiction?


Yes, this is actually true, believe it or not. There are over 2,900 species of snakes in the world, but only 600 of them are known to have any type of venom. If you were ever to get bitten by one of these snakes you would need to receive antivenins (anti-venom) to be OK. That is where the snake milker job comes into play. The snake milker gets the venom from the snake by making it bite a membrane that is stretched over a glass receptacle. The anti-venom is then created from the collected venom.
Announcing the Launch of MyHrWebsite.com!
Did you know that National Director Jennifer Loftus is launching a new web community called myhrwebsite.com?

How many times have you asked a handful of people that you know for:
·    Who's a good vendor for a specific HR service?
·    How to do something in Microsoft Office?
·    Word of mouth referrals for a job opening?
·    HR trends in others' organizations?
·    Sources for a story you're working on?

The network that you reach out to is probably small, relatively speaking.  And you may have a few people on LinkedIn, a few in an e-mail group, and another few people on Facebook - groups that don't necessary interact with one another.  As you know, the more people you reach out to with a question, the more valuable information you'll receive.

Myhrwebsite.com gives you the power to reach out to thousands of individuals with the click of a button, without the hassle of having to remember to visit message boards or access listservs with targeted members.

How myhrwebsite.com works is when you have a question, you visit the website and complete a quick form to submit your question.  Up to once a day, everyone in the community receives an e-mail with all the questions submitted by myhrwebsite.com members.  You can answer the questions you have expertise in, and ignore those on topics that you're not familiar with.  The Astron team will pre-screen the questions before the e-mail goes out to prevent spam from getting to you.  If there's no questions on a day, we won't send an e-mail.

Today we're asking you for a minute of your time to please do two things:

·    Sign up to join myhrwebsite.com's community at www.myhrwebsite.com - we can't do it for you because we're not spammers - and

·    Forward this invitation to individuals in your network whom you think would enjoy and benefit from this free service.

Please let us know your questions after reviewing myhrwebsite.com.  We look forward to having you and your network join us, so that the next time you have a question, you can say "let me visit myhrwebsite for the answer!"

Telecommuting: Is it feasible for your company?
