White House Security Mishap

  UNITED STATES—The White House is one of the most highly secured properties in the country, so someone please explain how an ex-military personnel was able to hop the gate and enter into the compound before being detained by authorities? That is a question that is being heavily debated at the moment, but the bigger concern is what would have...

Are Credit Cards Safe Anymore?

  UNITED STATES—I’ll be the first to admit, I have not always been one to whip out my credit card every time I make a purchase.

What is one of the biggest proponents of destroying...

Learning Not To Stress

UNITED STATES—Stress can be one of the most common factors that most of us encounter in life. I don’t know a person who doesn’t encounter stress on a daily basis. Rather you’re young, middle age or old, stress is a common denominator for all of us. There are some things in life that are not in our control and...

Quitting Your Job

UNITED STATES—By now, I’m sure everyone has heard of the Alaska reporter who decided to make herself a media frenzy by quitting her job on live television. Is the video funny, without a doubt, but there is more to the story that we’re not discussing. Was it a wise choice for the reporter to blatantly disrespect the company she...

Arrogance At Its Best

UNITED STATES—Well, once again rapper Kanye West has done it again.

While performing in Australia, West decided to halt...
