Of course, I then smacked the offending party down hard and fast, because as a freelance writer, my writing is my livelihood. Duplicating my content steals my hard work and damages my search engine rankings.Unfortunately, plagiarism is an ever-growing problem online. People seem to think if an article, image or photo is uploaded, it suddenly…See More

Female Athletes and Social Expectations

The 2012 Olympics were important for female athletes everywhere. For the first time since, well, ever, every nation competing fielded at least one female athlete. Which was great. Of course, we also had Hairgate, where Twitter users got their collective panties in a bunch because Gabby Douglas was more concerned with winning two gold medals than with the state of her hair.…See More

"Nice post, Shane. You raise several excellent points.  Yes, it's true that several large regional newspapers have either folded or gone all digital -- like the Rocky Mountain News of Denver and the Seattle Post…"

My mom got the financial section and the coupons, my dad got news and sports, and my sisters and I argued over entertainment and cartoons.Now that I’m grown, I don’t even get the Sunday paper anymore. I can find everything I need to know online and on the local news, which I can stream on my…See More

Stock then begins to see increases when there is talk of new items and then…See More
