A Better Way To Shine Light In A Dark World

Years ago I purchased a headlamp - a small flashlight that straps around your head to light your way. It is really useful because it leaves both your hands free as you work or walk. I used my headlamp during the dark half of the year to exercise my dog in dark pastures and an undeveloped No Man's Land on a steep hill near my house....

Bronx Letter Carrier Honored For Heroism

It was early Wednesday, December 18, 2013, and Jermaine Shirley could not wait to get to work.

How Many British Governors Were Elected By The People Of Hong Kong?

The answer to the above question, for those who did not know, is none. In 1841 under duress the Qing Dynasty ceded Hong Kong Island to the British.

A Great Man Cometh?

Every once in a great while a larger than life figure comes along who dramatically changes his (or her) country for the better.

And yes this has significant investment implications.
