"The company is creating clearer career paths for associates so they know what is expected of them in order to move from entry level positions to jobs with more responsibility that pay $15 an hour or more. The door is open for associates who want to work full time and earn $15 an hour, all they have to do is walk through it."

It's a new moon at its closest to Earth. Expect higher-than-usual tides in the days ahead. It's also the third of four new moons in this present season.

Living with type 1 diabetes can be challenging, to say the least. Sufferers have the arduous task of attempting to maintain their blood sugar levels daily with insulin injections and fingerprick tests, which often amounts to guesswork. But scientists around the world are endeavoring to develop new ways to manage the condition, such as non-invasive skin patches that constantly monitor glucose levels for you.

Introduction
I am an actress, singer, freelance writer, and amateur astronomer who is actively advocating the planet status of Pluto and all dwarf planets.
