This article presents news on different issues. In a poll of women, it was found that wish to have a different weight is always in the minds of the respondents. Job security now is no better than it has been since the recession struck. In tracking of corporate CEO departures by outplacement firm Challenger, Gray& Christmas, August had the fewest such moves of any month since September 1999. The report says fewer CEOs are being pushed out, and this dovetails with the fact that the average age of August's departing CEOs (64.3) is far higher than the average of the past three years.
