Never Judge A Book By Its Cover

UNITED STATES—So many of us have heard the phrase ‘Never Judge a Book by its Cover.’ Yet we constantly do it on a daily basis, which raises the question why.

Shrinkflation Is Indeed Real!

UNITED STATES—Look people cannot sit here in 2024 and tell me that Shrinkflation is not taking place. If people are saying that this is not the case, then explain to me what items are you purchasing.

Debate Does Not Have To Include Arguing

UNITED STATES—I think the world of debate is something we need more in this country. Too many people interchange the terms debate and arguing. They are NOT the same thing.

The Cinema Lover Returns

UNITED STATES—I love cinema, I really do, but I think the past week has been the most entertaining, educational and exciting week in cinema that I can recall in years. I have always been a fan of old-school cinema; I learned so much as an undergraduate about early films, technique and how the black-and-white era really placed a stamp...

Device Upgrade Affordability

UNITED STATES—I recently had an upgrade opportunity for my mobile service, not in particular my phone, but my iPad. I have had my iPad mini for close to a decade. It still works perfectly and I had no intention of getting rid of it because it works perfectly. The only issue was that a lot of apps that I...

Top Casino Payment Methods
