Think you’ve got what it takes to be a great budtender? In what must have been the most well-attended career event…well…ever, Denver, Colorado put on its first marijuana industry job fair, the CannaSearch Job Fair, hoping to attract qualified candidates for a variety of positions. Some of those positions even require actual degrees and credentials, like say, accountants, marketing execs and tech experts. Oh yeah and sellers, too. No mention on samplers, though. Potential employees had to be at least 21 years of age and marijuana use was a no-no at the fair.

There’s something different about you…

Haven’t you been spending a lot of time AND money at Ulta Salon? No? Not you? Impossible since their earnings shot up about 14% more compared to this same quarter last year – taking Wall Street by surprise. The cosmetics and beauty retailer, conveniently located at a strip mall near you, beat analysts’ expectation by two cents. A pittance to you but not on Wall Street where it pays to beat The Street. And that, my well coiffed-friend, takes a lot of make-up and hair product.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…

You remember that big old mess (I am being flip, of course) that BP caused in the Gulf of Mexico back in 2010? You know, the Deepwater Horizon blowout? The fatal one that also led to a massive oil spill that caused epic environmental damage? BP is still waiting to hear if a court will find them grossly negligent. But that’s not the news here. What is news is that they must be the luckiest company. Ever. Because the US government is still planning on doing business with them and they’ve even reached a deal with environmental protection authorities for new drilling rights – once again in the Gulf of Mexico.  After all, BP US did invest $50 billion in the last five years. John Mingé, head of BP America said, “Today’s agreement will allow America’s largest energy investor to compete again for federal contracts and leases.” Isn’t that just the best?
