There’s no denying it – social media is a huge part of our lives. I usually scroll through my Instagram feed before I’ve even had my first cup of coffee, and I don’t do anything before I’ve had my first cup of coffee. It turns out I’m not the only one addicted to screen time- Americans in the 25-34 age bracket look at their devices 50 times per day. There’s even a word for when you ignore your significant other for your phone –
This morning, as I was posting on Instagram, I couldn’t figure out whether National Women’s Day was National Woman or National Women’s day. Yes, I was an English major. Yes, baby brain is still a thing when your baby is almost two. Not wanting to make a grammatical faux paux on my return to social media, I googled it. I stumbled upon an article on Forbes called “On National Women’s Day, Don’t Look Less Than You Are.” And wanting to delay the start of my billing as long as possible,
Pot. Mary J. Cannabis. Grass. Dope. Ganja. Smokinnn a doobie. Whatever you want to call it, Marijuana is a hot topic in the news and political arena. Twenty-eight states and Washington, D.C. have made marijuana legal for medicinal purposes. Seven states and the Washington, D.C. have laws legalizing marijuana for recreational use. In states like California, dispensaries look more like the Apple Store than pharmacies, with the special stuff coming in different flavors, potencies and products,
Do you ever go to farmer’s markets and daydream about quitting your day job and selling your famous jam or granola? Glad I’m not the only one. Usually when you sell food you’re subject to Department of Health regulations and other state regulations that require you to have a licensed commercial kitchen. But there are laws in place, called cottage food laws, to help the little people out who want to sell their food on a small scale.
So you’re hiring a nanny…Leaving your most beloved human with a stranger is definitely nerve-wracking, so you may not have even begun thinking about everything that goes into finding that special someone. Before all of the paperwork, like setting up a contract and figuring out taxes, you’re going to want to interview the potential nanny to see if she’s a good fit. You’ve spent countless mornings getting ready for interviews yourself – “Is this heel more cocktail hour than morning meeting?”
On this Sunday, March 12, we lose an hour of sleep. If you’re a glass half full kind of person, that means we gain an hour of sunshine at the end of the day, woohoo! But ya, that alarm is going off an hour earlier. Daylight Savings Time wasn’t invented just to mess with our emotions twice a year, and hasn’t been around forever – it’s actually based on a law.
Daylight Savings Time got its root during WWI,
Contracts come in all shapes and sizes. There are employment contracts, residential lease contracts, and Fifty Shades of Grey contracts (probably not enforceable).
Contracts are like written promises. And like promises, they can be broken, and when they are there are consequences (like that time Dave promised to bring me home ice cream when I was nine months preggo and didn’t deliver).
Knowing what you sign is important because contracts are legally binding documents.
In 2011, Megyn Kelly had this to say to Mike Gallagher, a political commentator who called her maternity leave a “racket”:
“Just in case you didn’t know, Mike, I want you to know that the United States is the only country in the advanced world that doesn’t require paid maternity leave. Now I happen to work for a nice employer that gave me paid leave. But the United States is the only advanced country that doesn’t require paid leave.
Valentine’s Day usually brings out the warm and fuzzy in all of us, but for some couples, this day is just the beginning of the end. And while you may have thought it was no big deal that you were too busy this year to get a gift or a card for your significant other, you may be wrong. The day after Valentine’s Day kicks off divorce season around the country, with February being the busiest month of the year for divorce attorneys.
Calling all food bloggers out there! The internet is full of gourmet chefs showcasing their latest unique recipe, and wanna-be-foodies simply copying recipes from their Ina Garten cookbook and calling it their own. So how do the truly innovative chefs keep their hard-earned recipes from being copied by imposters posting their recipes online without permission? You may be thinking copyright law, and you’d be partly right. Copyright law protects original works of authorship,
