Americans do have a bit of a reputation for suing each other, and it’s one that’s backed up by at least some of the statistics. But personal injury law is certainly not limited to the United States, say legal experts at law firms Halifax. In Halifax, Nova Scotia — as well as all around Canada and in many other countries besides our own — there are laws designed to protect people who become injured because of someone else’s negligence.
No question about it: burning fossil fuels is not great for the environment. Car exhaust is a major factor in environmental problems, like pollution and global warming. Lucky for us, there’s a great deal we can do to minimize the impact of our driving habits on the globe, even if we don’t want to give up driving altogether!
Our “money story”--the way in which we experience money, often determined by our own personal history with it--can take the form of a “poverty mindset” that keeps us from spending money where we ought to. And, as the old saying goes, “there’s nothing more expensive than being poor” (or, in this case, acting like it): when we lack the funds to protect ourselves and maintain our valuable possessions, or act as if we do, then we expose ourselves to more risks and costlier problems.
There are plenty of great reasons to spend time outdoors! When we have fun in the sun, we’re doing more than just getting a little exercise or working on our tans. Experts believe that spending time outdoors is actually healthy regardless of whether or not you’re getting exercise.
Protecting innocent children should be a top priority, not only for parents but for the public at large. The debate over how to best protect them is now the ongoing controversy, but you can dismantle most arguments into those focused on the people and those focused on the weapons.
Experts, I have some travel advice to ask of you. I love taking vacations, but I’ve never done what I’d consider a true “outdoor vacation.” Sure, I’ve hung out outside on vacation--I’ve been on beach vacations like everyone else--but I never felt like I really experienced nature, outdoor sports, or other staples of those hip, outdoorsy vacations that everyone seems to be taking these days.
Supply and demand are two of the most basic economic forces, and they are in play even in some of the most complex financial situations. Let’s take a step back and try to understand how marketplaces work--from the simplest to the most complex.
Gold has been considered valuable for almost as long as human beings have been on this planet. The reasons for that are simple: there’s only so much gold available, it’s an attractive metal, and it’s easy to shape into jewelry and coins.
Brisbane, Australia is a fantastic place to visit for any amount of time. Unlike Sydney, Australia, which continues to develop a poor reputation for its unreasonably exorbitant cost of living, Brisbane is considered a hidden gem. While major cities like Sydney and Melbourne succumb to overcrowding and skyrocketing real estate values, Brisbanites are enjoying some of the best times to date. That’s excellent news for your upcoming travels, especially if you plan to have fun without breaking the bank.
I could use a second opinion. My parents called me yesterday to let me know that my grandpa passed away. It wasn’t necessarily unexpected, since he’d been struggling with health complications for about a year. Everyone in our family has had a traditional burial so far, but, apparently, my grandpa didn’t want that. I know it’s his choice, but it seems pretty unconventional. Is cremation considered more acceptable now?
