I came across an article in Bloomberg Newsweek that I think is refreshing and contains a real golden nugget. It was in the Jan. 14th -20th, 2013 issue, Etc. Social Studies. Entrepreneur Jia Jiang gets rejected every single day (sometimes more than once) and shares those moments with us through his blog.

This is all just getting under way but the question is: “To e-hail or to halt” that is the question for the judge, whoever he/she may be. Check out the current state of affairs. For the record, although this is a matter involving a number of well entrenched interest groups with considerable power, the fact [...]
Henley Varner, a budding musician, contacted us via our contact us feature and asked if we could help promote his music. IN the spirit of sharing and community, I present you with some fresh tunes from our extended community!
If you have something you would like to share with the CabCorner community, don’t be shy, give [...]
