The agency may be forced to cease Saturday mail delivery; terminate more than 200,000 career positions; and close hundreds of smaller post offices. Other proposals include partnering with UPS and FedEx; selling advertising on the sides of mail trucks; and phasing out delivery to front-door mail slots.

  24. 25. Twitter Horror <ul><li>FRIDAY, JAN 16 </li></ul><ul><li>This Guy Probably Got Fired for Offending All of FedEx </li></ul><ul><li>Here's a story that will be used as an example of why it's vitally important to watch what you say on Twitter. A representative from Ketchum New York (a PR and Marketing firm) heads to Memphis to give a big presentation to their big client, FedEx, and totally offends everyone who works there before even stepping foot in the building. </li></ul><ul><li>Upon landing in Memphis and getting a lay of the land he tweets, &quot;True confession but I'm in one of those towns where I scratch my head and say, 'I would die if I had to live here.'&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Someone from inside FedEx was following Capt. Footinmouth, whose Twitter name is 'keyinfluencer' — quite possibly the douchiest nickname of all history — and that person sent the letter we posted below. You'll want to read it, because not only is it amazingly poignant, but because it was copied to &quot;the FedEx Coporate Vice President, Vice President, Directors and all management of FedEx’s communication department AND the chain of command at Ketchum.&quot; Thank you Peter Shankman for sharing this story . </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Mr. Andrews, </li></ul><ul><li>If I interpret your post correctly, these are your comments about Memphis a few hours after arriving in the global headquarters city of one of your key and lucrative clients, and the home of arguably one of the most important entrepreneurs in the history of business, FedEx founder Fred Smith. </li></ul><ul><li>Many of my peers and I feel this is inappropriate. We do not know the total millions of dollars FedEx Corporation pays Ketchum annually for the valuable and important work your company does for us around the globe. We are confident however, it is enough to expect a greater level of respect and awareness from someone in your position as a vice president at a major global player in your industry. A hazard of social networking is people will read what you write.&quot; </li></ul>

  39. 45. Stay Positive <ul><li>A recent IBM survey of 30,000 people uncovered several trends that speak to the dawn of a new day in consumerism. </li></ul><ul><li>Some 90% of those polled are changing what they spend to some degree. That may seem like a no-brainer to many of you. </li></ul><ul><li>Consider, however, that 90% of the general population is not facing hard times . </li></ul><ul><li>What's happened is that our psychology has shifted to a place where we're all worried and feeling pinched even if we're not in reality. </li></ul><ul><li>The biggest revelation from the IBM survey is that 30% of those polled have become what are called &quot;shifters.&quot; That means they have absolutely no store or brand loyalty; they just want the most for their money wherever they can get it. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, that also means 70% are still brand and store loyal, but the best deals will obviously flow to the 30%. </li></ul><ul><li>One final thought: Just because we're facing tough times, it doesn't mean that things will always be this way. That kind of belief -- that our economy will just keep going further down -- is called &quot;inertia bias&quot; in psychology and economics. </li></ul><ul><li>But it's not true. So it's not a question of &quot;if&quot; the economy will recover -- it's a question of &quot;when.&quot; </li></ul>
