Professional Courtesy Email and Instant Message Use
Before dashing off a quick email or instant message to a friend or family member during a protracted work meeting, remember that your message may be monitored. Over three-quarters (76%) of US firms report that they record and review their employee communications on the job, with over half retaining and reviewing email.
The consequences of misuse can be severe. The American Management Association reports that one in four companies have terminated employees for email misuse. This might be the perfect day to brush up on what your employer says about proper use of email and IM in the "Company Handbook." Companies large and small are implementing electronic technology policies. The primary drivers for communication monitoring are legal and regulatory. In a court of law, email, instant messages, and other employee content has become evidence. They are the equivalent of business DNA.

The History and Legends Behind Valentine's Day
Every February we celebrate Valentine's Day by giving flowers, candy and cards to those we love. We do this in honor of Saint Valentine. You may be wondering, "Who is St. Valentine"?
Legend says, there was an Emperor at that time by the name of Claudius II. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those that were married and therefore outlawed marriage for young men in hopes of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, St. Valentine a priest at the time in Rome, decided this decree just unfair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When Emperor Claudius II found out about Valentine's actions he had him put to death.
Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor's daughter. Before he was put to death he sent the first 'valentine' himself when he wrote her a letter and signed it 'Your Valentine', words still used on cards today.
