The New York Times Small Business Page

One of you fine folks at a NYS SBDC center (I won't mention who, but the person has the same first name as my father AND my sister) sent me this nifty link to the New York Times Small Business page with news, tips, and the like.

One of the stories, also sent separately by this SBDCer, is this story: "The Supreme Court, in its most important patent ruling in years, on Monday raised the bar for obtaining patents on new products that combine elements of pre-existing inventions."

Interesting stuff. Please feel free to send us useful sites such as this one.
New postage rates, as you probably know, started yesterday. But while the first ounce charge went up from 39 to 41 cents, the subsequent ounce rate went DOWN from 24 cents to 17 cents. So the cost of a two-ounce letter has gone from 63 cents to 58 cents.
I thought those of you who attended last year's staff training would find this story rather intriguing.
