NOT NECESSARILY NEWS




For every lonely heart who has spied his soulmate in traffic, only to watch her speed away once the light turns green, www.flirtingintraffic.com has come to the rescue. The Web site collects headshots and bios of flirts and assigns each a numbered sticker, or Flirting ID, to affix to their car bumpers. When other members see that number and like what they see in the drivers seat they can log onto the Web site, enter the sticker number and learn more. If flirts want to communicate, they do so through the Web sites e-mail system.

You already know what that person looks like because youve seen them in their car, says creator Ben Philips. The online photo provides additional recall. And the most important part about www.flirtingintraffic.com is that all of the members are truly single and available. You wouldnt put our sticker on your car if you were married or in a relationship.

For people who dont drive, Philips says those flirts can put their Flirting ID on their purses, bookbags or briefcases.


Ageism Gets the Boot

An aging workforce calls for employers to use new strategies to retain the experience and reliability of their workers over the age 50, says the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). To that end, the organization, along with the AARP and other groups, has formed the Alliance for an Experienced Workforce.

The alliance aims to help employers understand, plan for and create workplaces that successfully engage and use the skills of workers over the age of 50.

By 2010, nearly one in three workers in the United States will be over the age of 50, according to CompTIA, and the relative proportion of younger workers will decline, so companies must attract and keep older workers.
