Everyone hates paying taxes! Especially when you don’t know where in the world those hard earned tax dollars go. Who does it help? Where does it all go? Is it paying someone to do something? Well, The U.S. government has a specific process of where all of those billions of [...]

Most people have either dated a co-worker or have thought about pursuing a co-worker, but there seems to be an underlying hesitance to do so because of the “sexual harassment” fear. It is perfectly okay to ask a co-worker on a date as long as you do not make them feel uncomfortable or imply [...]
