he shift to consulting services will make Dell look more like IBM (and HP). Dell has an existing services division, which will be rolled into Perot Systems. Peter Altabef, the current CEO of Perot Systems, will run the combined IT Services business. Both Dell and Perot Systems are based in Texas, which should make the combination go smoother.

Guest post by Jason VanTreesEver seen programs online that offer bonus commissions to help increase possible earnings? If like many people, one's thoughts that comes to mind when approached by such programs or systems would be thoughts like “scam”, “rip off” or “to good to be true”. Unfortunately there are some programs made available that offer riches and fame and the glory to become financially free by simply signing up with an email address or a free trial to get you involve and then BANG, you are on your own yet again trying to make something work that will make you profits onl

As summer begins the days become hotter and lengthier which present adventure on the road. All though it can be exciting to take to the road there are still issues of weather and other hazards which could hinder the unsuspecting motorist.
Temperatures during the summer months will rise, yielding in some places a lack of rain. Debris that is not taken away by rainfall can increase on the surface of the roads. Other surface issues such as oil, dust, and rubber can also be plentiful in areas where rain has not occurred often. A lack of rain can make the road more slipp

ery.
Slick roads can also increase after a small rain, as the water stays on the road rather than running off. Debris, dirt or oil mixed with water can create conditions that are less than safe. The driver may not even suspect the problems.
Driving once it has rained, and then the roads warm again will affect how you can brake. In fact the distance will increase for the amount of brake time you need to stop or to go around a curve. The tyre grip is going to be less controlled.
Asphalt, after a very hot dry period is worse than just after a short rain. A polished sheen can be seen on the ground as the heat mixes with the tar. The more cars that travel over an area the hotter the road can become.
The warm and enjoyable weather will bring out more than a keen driver. It will also bring out the holiday motorists with their caravans. The open road becomes a mecca for those who enjoy a long drive in the country with their convertible or the travelling family wanting to camp out. Holiday caravan drivers can put a small ruffle in the drive, but you should not irritate them. They have every right to be on the road, thus remaining calm is essential even if you are wishing to pass.
Be aware that many of these drivers will have been travelling for long distances, on roads they are unfamiliar with, possibly distracted by their children or satellite navigation. Be prepared for them to make unexpected manoeuvres without signalling, and factor this into your decision when deciding whether it is appropriate to overtake them, and remember you easily come across a slow moving vehicle mid way through a blind bend.
Modern vehicles come with daylights which turn on even when it is sunny out. Running lights during the day in summer has been researched, which is one reason daylights are now on modern cars. It was determined that having lights in the daytime reduces collisions and accidents by 12 percent. Factors like sun glasses, spotty shaded areas, and the summer sun makes leaving your lights on safer for other drivers to see you and you to see them.

About the Author:
If you are considering running with your car lights on during the day it is well worth upgrading your Car Lights, to maximise their visibility and endurance. One area that your lights will really benefits is by fitting New Sidelight Bulbs, they are straight forward to fit and are available as either xenon or LED bulbs.

It's fun writing about Wall Street's greedheads and tax dodgers. But every once in a while, I get to write about something positive -- and unpublicized -- that some Wall Street types have done. Today's reversal of the Street's natural order involves Davis Advisors.

Time to call all of my buddies, go to the store and stock up on beer and snacks, and head on over to the couch because it’s NFL season again! This NFL season, of course everyone will be picking out there hopefully winning teams to bet on. Making a little bit of money here, then losing that same money on another game, what a cycle that never seems to win. Losing is an option, it always has been, and doesn’t have to stay this way. Would it feel good to have a professional doing all of the game

Question: My wife and I keep $20,000 in a passbook savings account as an emergency reserve. What's driving me crazy is that we're getting only 60 cents a month in interest. I like the security of the account and the immediate access, but 60 cents a month on 20 grand???? How can I do better? --Dale F., Waldorf, Maryland
