Homeless: Please Help

Proof that homelessness is on the rise is evident all over Center City Philadelphia. Love Park is over-crowded with homeless people and possibly, dope feinds. Walking down Chestnut Street you'll see at least two homeless people sitting on the ground on each block. All this leads me to one question...

It's growing right along with the increase in the crime rate. Pay attention people.

The Very First, All Diamond Ring

Shawish Jewelry, a company based in Switzerland, has created the very first all diamond ring. Ladies, this is a 150 carat diamond ring that compares to no other. It is one of a kind, all diamond. I mean like, the band and everything. Pure diamond, nothing else. Just beautiful! It's worth $70 million. Jewelers at Shawish took about a year to design the diamond ring and have already obtained the copyright for their design, so don't expect to see any copycat make-ups of this baby. Shawish jewelers calls their diamond beauty, "The World's First Diamond Ring." It's definitely worthy of the title. There was never a diamond ring, until this one. (The others were gold and diamond).

Top Selling Products Online

When thinking about starting an online store, or selling products or services online, one might want to figure out which products are bringing in the cash. I've been experimenting with selling on eBay. I've only sold clothes and shoes, but wanted to find out what products would bring in more money. I found an article that does a good job of breaking it down. The top selling items are Software, books, music, videos, flowers, computer hardware, consumer electronics, office supplies, apparel, and footwear. Click this link -> eStorefront Guide for more info. After reading the information I think I will stick to selling apparel. From my own experience with online sales I can say that children and women's clothing sell much faster than men's clothing. I'm making plans to open my eBay store as a children's clothing store.
