– El Gringo The vast majority of the world  believes that climate change is real and, for the most part, human beings are to blame for the acceleration of this phenomenon.

Switzerland Moves Closer to another Housing Bubble Crisis

We already know that Switzerland is uber-expensive. It is often referred to as the playground of the rich.

by Taistealai Sarasota has not been a bull’s-eye for a major hurricane since reliable records began in 1871. There are several theories out there to explain this phenomenon. Long time resident Jim Lawson suggests that the reason Sarasota lucks out is its proximity to Pass-A-Grille and St. Pete Beach. The old reincarnated pirate has been protecting these areas for years. He has said as long as he is around Pass-A-Grille and St Pete Beach would never take a hurricane head on. Think about it how close has a hurricane come and then veer off at the last minute. He uses

At least that’s what the numbers suggest. Depending on the source, the average person obtains a 10-30% salary increase when changing jobs. Therefore, it’s no surprise that people are quitting their jobs more than ever before. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the proportion of Americans who quit their jobs hit a 17-year high in May at 2.4%, with the annual quit rate rising16.2% in 2009 to over 26% in 2017.
