How To Avoid Harassment and Know Your Rights: The Fair Debt Collection Process

When many people think of the stereotypical debt collector, it's a hardened scoundrel of melodrama infamy that tries to throw widows and orphans into the lane, because rent is inflated. Although it's tempting to portray these people as shameful villains — and some of their behaviors were history's less than admirable — one thing is essential to remember: no one has to borrow money. Finally, it is because of the option of borrowing money that you owe a debt. Your creditor issued your loan or credit line on your guarantee of the payment of this loan. Your creditors have a…

My Divorce Story and How I Survived

People from all walks of life have that longing of being attached to someone and be valued for who they are as a person. Man and woman are wired differently yet the desire of being connected intimately are inherent in the deepest core of an individual. Those who are seriously in love will consider marriage to make the union official, permanent and later on form a family that makes up a society.

Gendered Justice: What Women Can Do To Survive A Criminal Charge

A Criminal charge could be everyone's nightmare, but things are just a whole lot different for women who got a criminal charge. In the United States, most crime categories arrests for women are lower than 20 percent compared to men. It's true that females have fewer arrest rates than males for all crime categories with prostitution as an exemption, this is a fact in all countries and backed up by reliable data on a historical period. That's why things are a whole lot worse if it's a female that got convicted with a criminal offense. The emotional, mental and psychological…

Because Culture Shapes our Differences

One day when I was four or five  years old my father took a baseball out of my hands saying that I should give it to my younger brother and step aside to the nearby sidelines to watch without getting hit by the ball because “baseball is not for girls” . That one sentence changed my life irretrievably forever. My father and my grandfather loved me dearly from before my first breath until their last breaths departed decades later, so it was not an act of bad intentions or conspiratorial meanness with some evil goal and certainly not hate. If…

I was excited for my first nurse manager position. Unit 51 was a 20-bed medicine unit with the lowest patient scores in the hospital. I was ready to make it my project. On my second day of work, my new boss, “Kitty” gave me the sister unit, Unit 52. I was now doing a job that for the previous sixty years took two people to do. This led to the first time I stood up to her. I reminded her that we agreed that I would only manage Unit 51, and at a pay cut from my previous position. She…
