Really? Beauty Blunders Could Cost You The Job?

After reading this, I guess Beauty blunders CAN cost you the job, after all. Here how Beauty Blunders Could Cost You The Job!

From split ends to chipped nails to (huh?) no mascara, here is a list of the most-hated beauty blunders and what they mean to hiring manager.

Beauty Blunders Could Cost You The Job? The Checklist

  1. Chipped nails, 24 per cent (nervous/unprepared)
  2. Split ends, 19 per cent (lazy)
  3. Smudged mascara, 17 per cent (party animal)
  4. Fake tan, 13 per cent (loves a holiday)
  5. Bright red lipstick, 7 per cent (power crazy)
  6. Heavily pencilled brows, 5 per cent (too confident, cocky)
  7. Overpowering perfume, 4 per cent (attention seeker)
  8. Lipstick on teeth, 3 per cent (careless)
  9. No mascara, 3 per cent (emotional wreck)
  10. Line of foundation, 2 per cent (lack of attention to detail)
  11. Drawn-on beauty spot, 2 per cent (untruthful)
  12. 100 per cent immaculate, 1 per cent (gunning for boss’s job)

Do You Agree that Beauty Blunders Could Cost You The Job?

So before we begin our eye-rolling let me just say that there is, without a doubt, some merit to looking professional and polished for a job interview. Yes, if your nails are chipped that is particularly noticeable. But it’s not going to make-or-break your chances. And some of these are just plain bizarre.

Samsung Galaxy S3 HDMI MHL USB On The Go

I’m still on the quest to figure out how the MHL and OTG can co-exist; this is what I come up with so far, it was just an idea. … i think if i could connected two mhl cables it might work, since it satisfies the requirements… for (1) power IN, (2) HDMI out, (3) S3 microUSB in and (4)OTG IN
what do you think?

Since the MHL’s MicroUSB IN is for mainly for power, however it also transfers data, hence hdmi output. Now you would say “if it also transfers data, why not just plug the otg directly into it,” right?

Samsung Galaxy S3 HDMI MHL USB On The Go

Perhaps all we need are splitters, are there micro USD Splitters? … yes there are, so maybe we can try that.

Which brings us back to out original thoughts on this in the beginning. But the solution seems too simple, and if no one else had thought of this, they might have mentioned it, and yet mostly likely someone else had already tried it and they have not gotten it to work, so Back to Square One with the SG S3.

Sometimes simple solutions are the best, on seconds thought and review, i think it’s not going to work… after all!

Samsung Galaxy S3 HDMI MHL USB On The Go

Because… no matter how many mhl’s there are… it will not result in an extra MicroUSB out for the USB OTG, because it will always be for the power source

Onomastics and the Foundations of the (American) Cyber-Culture;

A.) According to the Free Dictionary, (www.thefreedictionary.com/)

on·o·mas·tic (n-mstk)
adj.
1. Of, relating to, or explaining a name or names.
2. Of or relating to onomastics.
[French onomastique, from Greek onomastikos, from onomazein, to name, from onoma, name; see n-men- in Indo-European roots.]
The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition copyright ©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. Updated in 2009. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved.

B.) Definition and examples of onomastics via Grammer dot about dot com (SEE Onomastics – Onomastician – Onomasticon – Paronomastic)

Etymology:

From the Greek, “name”

Examples and Observations:

“The study of place-names (toponymy) is closely allied to geography, history, and related disciplines. The study of personal names (anthroponymy) is related to genealogy, sociology, and anthropology. Another sub-discipline is literary onomastics, which examines the use of proper names in literature, and often focuses on the names of characters in fiction (characternyms). A primary requirement of onomastics is the clarification of certain basic terms relating to the concept proper name. In casual usage, proper names, proper nouns, and capitalized words are often taken to be the same thing. That assumption, however, can mislead, because the three expressions refer to three different things which partially overlap.”
(John Algeo, “Onomastics,” in The Oxford Companion to the English Language, ed. by Tom McArthur. Oxford Univ. Press, 1992)

“A striking feature of American place-naming practice is the frequency of incident-names, some of very banal origin. Massacre Rocks (ID) commemorates the killing of emigrants there in 1862; Hatchet Lake (AK) was so-called because a surveyor cut his knee on a hatchet there in 1954; Peanut (CA) was named by the postmaster, who, when asked for his views on a possible name, happened to be eating his favorite peanuts at the time; at Kettle Creek (CO or OR) kettles were lost; and at Man-Eater Canyon (WY) a reputed murderer and cannibal was finally arrested.”
(Richard Coates, “Onomastics,” The Cambridge History of the English Language, Volume IV, by Richard M. Hogg et al. Cambridge Univ. Press, 1999)
Pronunciation: on-eh-MAS-tiks

C.) While the Free Merriam-Webster … defines Onomastics as…

a : the science or study of the origins and forms of words especially as used in a specialized field
b : the science or study of the origin and forms of proper names of persons or places
2
: the system underlying the formation and use of words especially for proper names or of words used in a specialized field
— on·o·mas·ti·cian noun
First Known Use of ONOMASTICS
