Fred Nilson opines that technology is in constant motion so it is not always easy to keep up with. It seems like new tools are always surfacing to help us save time and improve productivity.

Doug Jackson opines in Quora that in light of the Donald Trump rise in the U.S. primary polls and his associated rhetoric, the term fascism is being thrown around a lot these days.

The trial began earlier this year and is being managed by Kela, the National Social-Insurance Institute. Kela selected 2,000 Finns between the ages of 25 and 58, each of whom was receiving some form of unemployment benefits, to receiv... More →

Just last year, he built a new house in a great neighborhood, and is proud to be able to take his family on an annual vacation to a white-sand Caribbean beach.
