Surprising Jobs that Pay $25 an hour? Perhaps only in America

According to an article posted at Yahoo hot jobs title Surprising Jobs that Pay $25 an Hour, below is the list of Jobs:

  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technician
  • Human Resources Recruiter
  • Paralegal or Legal Assistant
  • Respiratory Therapist
  • Police Officer
  • Advertising Sales Agent
  • Interior Designer

It is true that you don’t necessary need a post graduate to qualify for the jobs above, but it’s a different story if you’re thinking of making at least $25 per hour. It might be true if you’re staying in the US but things might be different if you’re staying in other countries. It’s all about the demand of the profession versus the numbers of profession available. Depending on which country that you stay, for example China or India, the value of profession is very much different. A lot of foreign students graduated in the US decided not to return home to pursuit their career mainly because lack of demand of their profession in their country. Certain profession receive more paid and respect in US than other countries. That is why we see so many different faces and colors in Silicon Valley. Most of these foreign profession plans to work in US for few years and return back to their home country after their bank account have enough money. After few years of working in US, most of them already familiar with the working culture in the states. When they return back to their home country, most of them find it difficult to blend into the work culture of their country. Thus most of them decided to return to the state and make it a permanent job. Plus, the pay is way better in the state.

P/S: Just take an example of the salary of a Technician. Compare it with few other countries and you’ll see the big difference.

Remembering Patrick Swayze

It is a shocking news that Patrick Swayze dies of cancer at the age of 57. According to the news, Patrick Swayze suffered from pancreatic cancer and has been struggling with the illness for the last 20 months.

Patrick Swayze starred in A&E network's "The Beast" that air recently. I saw that series and it did draw my attention to finish all the 13 episodes. The series first season is not bad and I was hopping to see more of Patrick Swayze in the second season. Honestly he did not look like a person that is suffering from an illness. He did look skinny but still can feel his energy and passion through his acting. It's truely a great loss for such a talented actor.

I still remember couple of the movie that Patrick Swayze starred in, "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost". Some of the memorial scene in these movies are unforgetful, including the music, songs, faces and words. It also makes me remember the young beautiful Demi Moore, talented Whoopi Goldberg and Jennifer Grey.

Fans of Patrick Swayze will surely miss him, including me. As a tribute to Patrick Swayze, I'm sure television network around the world will be showing his movies and drama. I'm expecting to see "Ghost" and "Dirty Dancing" to air in my country.

Anything for a cup of free coffee

Some people will do anything for free coffee. If Mac D is giving out free coffee for doing that, I really don’t mind doing it. In fact, I think it’s fun. Perhaps I’ll bring my boss along whenever I’m getting that free coffee.
