As I watched an ad for GPS gadgetmaker Garmin Ltd. during the recent Super Bowl, I had a fleeting thought the $2 million spent would be a waste, just like all that money those long-gone dot-coms once spent on the big game.
Last week, as I read about a parade of mobile phone-based navigation debuts at a European trade show, that thought turned into pessimism for Garmin, Tom Tom, Chicago's Cobra Electronics and other makers of stand-alone global positioning systems.

Substitute teacher Neil O'Neill has become quite popular among students and staff members alike at James Logan High School for his musical talent and passion for the arts.
O'Neill is an accomplished musician and theater performer. As a substitute teacher, the proud native of Scotland has used his talents on the acoustic guitar and his singing to manage the classes he subs for.
"I usually make a contract with the students that if they re on task through the class when I m taking over that we pause a little earlier in the end to have some music." said O Neill, " I try to let them choose the songs and I sing to them. It's an incentive, most people like music live music
Born in Johnston, Scotland in 1954, O Neill began singing at the age of 6, and took up the guitar at the age of 16.
