Dave Roos, How Stuff Works

If your main source of information is "People" magazine, you might think that everyone in Hollywood is filthy rich.

HD Cameras Blast into Orbit


NASA has installed four commercial HD cameras on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS) and is streaming the feed live to the public. Called the High Definition Earth Viewing experiment, its purpose is to expose the cameras to cosmic and solar radiation in order to determine the effect of space on video quality and help engineers find the best type of video for use in the harsh environment of space. This is part of NASA's effort to assess and integrate Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment into its future missions.

Should You Pay Employees an Hourly Wage or a Salary?


Joe Worth, www.entrepreneur.com


This subject is covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) and its accompanying regulations. The law spells out, among other things, minimum wages, rules about determining hours worked and the definitions and treatment of nonexempt and exempt employees for overtime pay.

Overtime, in fact, is one of the critical considerations in determining how to pay your staff. Nonexempt employees--typically those who get an hourly wage--must be paid overtime when they work more than 40 hours per week. Exempt employees do not receive overtime. (We commonly call these salaried employees, but the kicker is that even some salaried employees may actually be considered nonexempt and subject to overtime pay.) To make matters even more confusing, each state has its own "wages and hours" laws, and they're usually more stringent than the FLSA's requirements.
