NDA's 41st Annual Convention at The Mirage proves very successful
NDA
Even with impact of the triennial ConExpo/ConAg exposition that followed the NDA’s 41st Annual Convention at The Mirage, the Association’s 2014 convention proved a great success. Recent survey results reveal that show attendees enjoyed every element of the convention from former Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s keynote address, to FMI’s Leadership Development Institute, as well as, the Monday Night Jimmy Buffet Theme Party to this year’s gold tournament at the Arroyo Golf Club. Similarly, exhibitors at this year’s show noticed a significant increase in purchases made from the exhibition hall floor and interest in the many new products introduced at the 2014 Convention. This all bodes well for the growing construction economy and the NDA’s 42nd Annual Convention at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville in March of 2015.

Dismantling Fukushima: The world's toughest demolition project
IEEE Spectrum
A radiation-proof superhero could make sense of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in an afternoon. Our champion would pick through the rubble to reactor 1, slosh through the pooled water inside the building, lift the massive steel dome of the protective containment vessel, and peek into the pressure vessel that holds the nuclear fuel. Unfortunately, mere mortals can’t get anywhere near that pressure vessel, and Japan’s top nuclear experts thus have only the vaguest idea of where the melted fuel ended up in reactor 1.

10 key hourly employee prescreening questions
By Mel Kleiman
Once you have a stack of applications for a job opening, it's best to develop a list of preliminary, prescreening questions to ask promising applicants at the earliest possible stage in your hiring process. People who need a job will tell you they'll work any days, hours or times you want. However, if you hire them and the hours aren't to their liking, they'll soon be showing up late or not at all. Head this aggravation off at the pass by asking these questions before the applicant knows what days/hours/shifts you need to fill.

USA Today
Americans who own their own businesses have to wear a lot of hats, from saleswoman to marketer to janitor.

The good news is that a host of credits and deductions the Internal Revenue Service offers help sole proprietors of small businesses make the most of their endeavors. But the bad news is that the tax code can often be intimidating — especially to first-time filers who are self-employed. To help take the headache out of your 2013 tax return, here are five money-saving tax tips for those who own their own business and are about to file.
