  2. Some skinny on court reporting

    Well, I used to be a court reporter in PA, and a little in FL. I did that for 12 years. Everyone always thinks -- court reporting, wow, you must be earning so much money, blah, blah, blah. It is truly a lot of fluff!!! Court reporting agencies seem to dole the good work out to reporters that...

  9. Passion vs Stability

    My absolute passion above passion is; working with animals. This year I was inspired by my own passion (my mum kept a book on me growing up and it reminded me of my passion for animal care), so I enrolled in a home course 'Animal medical knowledge and first aid for pets'. Today I updated my CV,...

  14. Teacher's Suicide Blamed on Test Scores

    Or as I like to call it, "Completely and Totally Screwed Up." Here's a good, award-winning, and beloved teacher, willing to work with poor and disadvantaged minorities who can barely speak English, and he is vilified in the press for it. This country is screwed. I can retire in four years and...
