Stop #SOPA and #PIPA

Two bills before Congress, the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and trample the First Amendment.

New blog focuses on heart healthy meals

Jason’s Marketing Primer now has a sister blog: Heart Healthy Meals.

While Jason’s Marketing Primer is dedicated to marketing, leadership and other business news, Heart Healthy Meals is my effort to write about a whole new topic. The new blog is dedicated to providing readers with recipes that are low in sodium and low in saturated fat, as well as tips for living healthy. The first two blog entries are for a turkey meatloaf recipe and a how-to on reading nutrition labels for sodium content.

If you’re at all interested in eating healthy food, check out Heart Healthy Meals today.
