Friday's Featured Accent: The Amish | The Accent Lab
In this series for The Accent Lab, we will be presenting an example each week (on Friday) of an unusual accent/dialect that speaks to the incredible diversity that can be found among native English speakers in how they produce the language. This week’s submission is from Amish Country (hat tip: Dialect Blog ) : Through his experience teaching ESL, as well as his efforts to learn foreign languages, Matt has developed a strong knowledge base in accent reduction. He created The Accent Lab to help students and teachers find great accent reduction information and resources. To get in touch, check out his Facebook page , follow him on Twitter , add him on Google+ , or email him from the Contact page . To check out another site that Matt Tschoegl has put together, head on over to Root Of All Money , a portal for people looking to learn how to monetize their WordPress websites.

Best Bags For Guys To Carry To Work
Gentlemen: We've recently taught you how to match your shoes to your pants, how to dress like a hotshot without breaking bank, and how to make sure your suit fits properly. Now it's time for a lesson in work-appropriate bags. But first, let's get one thing straight: You need a bag. Every career professional needs a reliable work bag — for your papers, your electronics, your wallet, your umbrella, your ham sandwich. We're not talking the nylon laptop bag you've had since college, or the bulky black briefcase your dad lugged to work (yeah, you know the one). We're talking stylish, professional and practical work bags. And with sales of men's bags on the rise, these handy accessories won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
