The company—one the country’s largest wireless carriers, providing cell phone service for about 123 million subscribers—calls…

Women increased their participation in the workforce over the last 50 years. Even if wage equality is a problem still, this generation of women should give themselves a pad on the back for making history.

Having a higher inflation usually boosts the economy because goods (or services) made in the U.S. become cheaper compared to those made abroads thus increasing the demand for such goods and lowering the unemployement rate by stimulating production. Countries like China have often used this to their advantages to compete against the world. The article below presents an insight in the work of the U.S. Federal Reserve as it is approaching its full employment goal.

The Age of Hacks? I think the author is misinterpreting what has been going on since the first days of person computing and the internet. Our lives are indeed online but the hacks have always been there. Like one of my friends would say "it's like American football, you have to know the playbook and walk through each play until you find the right one." Medical records are at risk and need to be protected and under scrutiny now more than ever.
This is why -- and how -- all these hacks are happening.

Rachel has a talent for capturing the right moment. She is flexible and patient. Her knowledge of the Washington D.C. area saved me a lot of time when deciding where to shoot. I will certainly do business with her again!

Great food, great place (so beautiful in the back room especially). Portions are large so you can take some home. Got the Couscous Royale. The presentation was great too.

I went there with my mum right after we got off the megabus. It was a very nice small place with great food. We ordered their 'bento box' and it was delicious. The (great) reviews were right. Don't let yourself tricked by the "not so tourist-clean" street on which it lies. Definitely something to try.
