If you believe that being the first to file a lawsuit does you any good, then this could be a surprise. Because women are more likely than men to file for divorce. Since the 1950s, folks reported that women are more likely than men to want out of marriage; .

For years, my policy has been to get things done. Oh, sure, everyone says that. But, I mean get things finished. Which may mean I put in a 36 hour day (yes, I know how ludicrous that sounds- but it’s not a new day unless I go to bed), an 18 hour day, a 10 hour day- or a 2 hour day.
A new study using the data from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions, in particular some 21,859 folks employed over the age of 18 was just completed. “Anxious?

Seth Prins, Lisa Bates, and Katherine Keys (Columbia University), along with Dr. Carles Muntaner (U of Toronto) serving as the authors.
It’s amazing what some kids can do. If you ever meandered the Westinghouse Science Fair floor (now the Intel Science Fair), with the best of 50 states’ high school ideas, you know what I mean. Sometimes, those things really make a difference in our world.

My son and I were off to visit the college of his choice. We had a tight window- we were leaving in the morning, to return that evening. He had a track meet the next day.
