LAS VEGAS -- Fight fans vented their anger after having to spend close to $50 for pay-per-view telecasts to witness Mike Tyson dispatch Peter McNeeley, Frank Bruno and Bruce Seldon in less than three rounds, so they have been offered a money-back guarantee for tonight's heavyweight match against Evander Holyfield.Cablevision, operating out of New York, will charge only $9.95 per round, up to a maximum of $49.75 for five rounds or more.The cable industry views this as a strong marketing tool to recruit a greater base of fight fans, but the idea of rebates does not sit well with the Nevada State Athletic Commission and rival television executives.

NEW YORK - For about four months early last year, Steve Willett had been looking for a job. The laid-off project manager from Jericho, N.Y., sent resumes, made phone calls and attended networking events. Nary a nibble. After hearing one fellow job hunter say, "I'm a CEO, and people won't even look at my resume," Willett started thinking last spring about how to make himself stand out from the crowd. Which is what led him to think of putting his photo and resume on a 2 1/2 -by-3 1/2 -inch card (the size of a baseball trading card)

WASHINGTON - In his 22 years on television in this mecca of self-promotion, Brian Lamb has not once uttered his own name. In his hour-long interview show "Booknotes" each week, Lamb appears on camera for about four minutes. His guest gets the other 56. And when Capitol Hill's gossipy social season rolls around, Lamb is not among the Congressmen, Cabinet secretaries and celebrity journalists who gather to drop names and rub elbows. If you're wondering how anyone could possibly run a TV network this way in an environment so conducive to bluster over substance, then you just don't understand Lamb or C-Span, the cable network he founded in 1979.
