I'm not sure why it always smells that way, it could be the clerk who is around late 70s or early 80s. I walk around just browsing the aisles, just looking for something. “What are you doing?” The clerk asks me as I see a pair of jeans. “Looking ma'am.” I make my way to a jewelry case and I see a silver ring, which looks rather nice. “Can I see this ring?” I ask the clerk. She walks over to me slowly. I sigh in annoyance for how slow she is moving. “Which one.” she asks me. “The silver one.” I say pointing to it. She grabs it with a cloth and gives it to me.

    People may make judgements or assumptions about who you are based upon where you live, the car you drive, the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, etc. I’ve been thinking about who I am, my value system and personality.

I am a wife, mother, work full-time and college student. All my life family has…

    Standing Out In a World of Fraudulent Non-profits Before donating to a charity, one should always look at where the money goes. The unavoidable conversation with the volunteer worker just ahead on the trail to donate to their cause might just be a far less innocent act than perceived. In modern society, many charitable organizations have adopted overly-capitalistic practices with regard to their income. As the former executive director of Oxfam, Nicholas Stockton describes the hiring practices…

The more prominent NGOs have become over the…

    Charity does exist, but not in the sense which Feinberg speaks of it. Feinberg speaks about “duties of charity,” but this is where Feinberg errs. While there certainly is such a thing as charity there is no such thing as a duty to be charitable. Inserting a legal duty into the equation nullifies any charitable action. For instance, if the government taxes me to take care of the poor this is not charitable. The government taxing me and later distributing my coerced contribution in a noble way is…

    NGOS/Charities When it comes to NGOS, charities and organizations everything appears really black and white. I feel that media really portrays it as that way. So I decided to put it in color and bring out some facts by providing certain certain incidents that take place in these groups. I feel that it is very important to do research before donating. In your mind you may think this money is going to individuals in need but in reality these groups may be using it for their own benefit. It is…
