Better Than Google

We have a new addition to our database collection and it comes courtesy of the Ramapo Catskill Library System.  It is called Glassdoor Jobs and Recruitment Site, and will be a boon to all those job seekers out there.  Due to its unusual content, you can search for a job title, but more than that, you can explore the corporate culture of an employer. Glassdoor holds a growing database of more than 8 million company reviewss, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, benefits reviews, office photos and more. Unlike other jobs sites, all of this information is entirely shared by those who know a company best — the employees. Add to that millions of the latest jobs — no other site allows you to see which employers are hiring, what it's really like to work or interview there according to employees, and how much you could earn.

What's Cooking?: The Slow Cooker

slow cooker

Do you own a slower cooker?  If you do, it’s time to dust it off and take it out.  Once you start to use it, it becomes an invaluable appliance which cooks your meals unattended.  I love my slow cookers.  I have three of varying sizes and shapes.  It is popularly known as “Crock-Pot” by the company who first manufactured it.  The crock is the thick and heavy ceramic inserted into the base unit which is insulated with the heating element.  The slow cooker uses low levels of heat, thus, it can withstand lengthy cooking times.  It can be left cooking unattended while you are working or running errands.  For those who have busy lives or want to be free from being behind the stove all day long, the slow cooker is a must have.  Nothing speaks to me like a ready home-cooked meal with little preparation.
