Heads up on two interesting opportunities

Two of my favorite mentors have some interesting programs going on:

Rich Sloan of StartupNation alerted me to the 2nd annual Home-Based 100 competition which highlights entrepreneurs like me who do work in the midst of laundry/toddler/toy/crumb-laden environments (wait, maybe that is only me — the rest of you may have much cleaner home office environments).  If you work from home, check out the categories and enter your business to win!

Dr. Srikumar Rao is offering a new segment of his renowned Creativity and Personal Mastery Course in Los Angeles, California.  Pardon my late reporting since the application deadline is September 5th, but if you have a moment, I really suggest you check it out.  One of my life goals is to participate in this life-changing program.

Creativity and Personal Mastery(CPM) will be offered beginning October 5, 2008 in Los Angeles. The deadline for application is September 5, 2008.

This is a very innovative course and many have found it life-changing. This article from the Financial Times tells you more about the course and the instructor Professor Srikumar Rao:

The syllabus, application procedure, calendar, fees and other details are at:

CPM is the only business school course anywhere that has its own alumni association – a testament to the overwhelming value that those who have taken it feel they received.

This program is not for everyone and there is a deliberately cumbersome application process. Do read the syllabus carefully and see if you think you qualify. It is best to do this early and not wait for the deadline. The application requires thought and takes time to complete.

Good luck if you choose to participate in either of these events!

    Here’s our market view on American stock market for 17th October, 2008
    The major stock averages had another dramatic day of swings yesterday, the Dow reversing from down 380 in the morning to close up 401 points. The averages finished just shy of their highs of the session and the NASDAQ Composite led the way.
    Stocks briefly rose at the opening, then reversed lower as a plunge in the October Philly Fed index (reported -37.5 v. estimated -10) and disappointing reading on September industrial production (reported -2.8% v. estimated -0.8%) weighed heavily. Follow-through selling from Wednesday was also a likely factor adding to the pressure on stocks.
    The measures of fear again reached record levels in the morning plunge. The CBOE Volatility Index, the VIX, and the CBOE NASDAQ 100 volatility indicator both rose to new intraday all-time highs of 81.17 and 84.62, respectively. Stocks steadily slid to their late morning lows. At that point, the DJIA was down 380 and the NASDAQ 62 point and the internals of the market were overwhelmingly negative for both the NYSE and NASDAQ.
    From the lows, the Dow rallied more than 500 points in an hour, gave back 200 points from their early afternoon peaks and settled into narrow ranges. A late acceleration sparked another 500-point rally up to the close. With the stock market successfully holding onto to their gains, the VIX and NASDAQ Volatility indexes eased back into their closes. The broad market finished solidly positive. Volume picked up substantially from the previous day’s low levels.
    Today – Volatility will also rise as a significant amount of options expire in a triple-witching session. The opening looks lower.
