Pre- and Post-Offer Employment Testing Saves Organizations Money
By Michael B. Stack - February 12, 2020

Organizations can ensure they have the right worker for the right job by taking some simple and relatively inexpensive steps.

Finding qualified people to fill jobs these days can be challenging. The unemployment rate is such that many employers take the attitude that beggars can’t be choosers, and getting butts into seats — any butts — is the only goal. They think the idea of spending any time and money on testing applicants is a waste. But is any hire preferable to a bad hire?

Haunted by Aliens, Secreted, and with Claims Denied
By Jorge Alexandria - October 31, 2019

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für Ufos aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
'ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher

 - Nena (Kerner), 99 Luftballons, 1984

In one simple catchy chorus, the German singer, Nena, sums up the Cold War in our era of nuke-laden bombers.  The song, as cited in a newspaper article from the Las Vegas Review-Journal is about five local high school students who play a prank to simulate a UFO by launching 99 aluminized Mylar balloons in the Nevada desert. A bunch of these balloons show up on the radar as unidentified objects and the Air Force scrambles planes to full alert to counteract a perceived nuclear attack. The song finishes with the singer walking through the devastated ruins of the world and finding a balloon. The final line of the piece is the same in German and English: "Denk' an dich und lass' ihn fliegen," or "I think of you and let it go.” Surrealistically, we then hear the balloon float away.
