Americans Are Getting Lazier Each Day

UNITED STATES—Sometimes I wonder about Americans, it seems like each day some new form of technology has been invented that is supposed to make our lives easier. However, in my personal opinion it is not making our lives easier, it’s making us lazier. I heard someone praise and I mean praise the notion of not even having to go...

Should The Age To Vote Be Lowered?

UNITED STATES—It is the age old debate that seems to have no end in sight: should the voting age be lowered in the United States? Before you answer that question think about it for a second. Really think about it America. There is a proposal by a U.S. Congressman Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts. I didn’t realize that the voting...

The Perks And Drawbacks Of Daylight Savings

UNITED STATES—This weekend marked daylight savings time and for many Americans it has its pros and cons. I don’t mind the notion of gaining an hour of sleep; however, I hate the notion of losing an hour of sleep. That notion of springing forward can create all kinds of chaos. For starters, for those of us who work and...

Exhausted Vs. Tired: Is There A Difference?

UNITED STATES—I recently had this debate with someone and it was bit heavier than I thought. When you think of the words ‘exhausted’ and ‘tired’ many would argue they are the same thing. When I think of the word exhausted, it reminds me of just being burnt out; your body has reached its point of no return. When I...

You Save When You Cook

UNITED STATES—In the past two years I have discovered something about my spending habits that I never paid much attention to: food is costly. That especially holds true if you’re one who indulges in eating out. I will not say I eat out every day of the week because I don’t and I know it would NOT be healthy...

What’s In It For A Birthday?

UNITED STATES—I just had a birthday and I turned a milestone to say the least.  It seems the more that you age; the more things come into perspective for you. The little things in life that you used to complain and whine about no longer have relevance. At the same time you start to reflect on the past; things...

Money Management Matters

UNITED STATES—You have it one minute, it’s gone the next second. I’m talking about money. Americans want it, some of us have it, some of us have a lot of it and some of us don’t have much of it at all. It is indeed a conundrum to say the least. I used to toss around the word budget...

The Problem With Award Shows

UNITED STATES—Awards season is slowly coming to an end, and I must say I’m happy. It can be exhausting for those of us who cover these ceremonies. You have to be dedicated anywhere from 2-4 hours (looking at you Grammys) to watch a show, that for the first 30 minutes is fun, but the remainder of the ceremony is...

Oscar Outrage

UNITED STATES—Hearing that the Academy Awards would not have a host for the 2019 ceremony did not stun me to say the least. However, after news broke this week about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences broadcasting awards for 4 categories: film editing, cinematography, makeup and hairstyling and live-action short via commercials are was speechless. The notion...

Was Super Bowl LIII The Worst Ever?

UNITED STATES—Wow, I cannot recall a Super Bowl that was this boring, this slow, and this terrible ever. Super Bowl LIII saw the New England Patriots win yet again this time over the Los Angeles Rams. This cements Tom Brady for many as the greatest NFL player and quarterback with 6 wins. Yes, the guy has more rings than...
