Poker is a card game that requires skill, strategy and luck in equal measures to be successful. While playing for real money or just entertainment can be enjoyed equally, many are concerned that doing so constitutes illegal gambling – but there are ways of engaging in the activity without breaking the law. Are poker games with friends legal in each state? That depends on state regulations and how the game is organized. Some states consider poker a game of chance while others recognize its skill component.

Amy Chua of Yale Law Professor published a memoir detailing her parenting style known as tiger parenting in 2011. In it, she detailed raising Sophia and Lulu with strict methods aimed at excelling academically, musically, computer gaming or sports – as well as obeying their parents at all times regardless of whether they agree with what their parent says or doesn’t say. Media depictions have often painted her as an abusive drill sergeant; thus prompting many to ask: Are children of tiger parents truly blessed? This topic is complex. Studies on this issue have explored this area extensively and provided mixed findings; for instance, Su Yeong Kim and colleagues’ study published in Slate revealed that children of tiger parents tend to perform worse academically and be more depressed or alienated from their parents than peers. On the other hand, Vivian Louie and others’ research suggests immigrant children typically outshone native-born…

Ombudsmen provide advocates and resources for long term care residents (older adults and people living with disabilities in nursing homes, assisted living communities or family home care) ensuring their rights aren’t infringed upon. Their role is to listen, investigate and work towards finding resolution for resident complaints when possible; alternatively they refer such issues directly to appropriate agencies when resolution cannot be found through them. Our research employed a qualitative approach with interviews of 44 users who reported their experiences to the Health Ombudsman between May and August of 2010. For inclusion, they must have provided statements in person, by telephone or letter; this criterion allows us to gain an in-depth knowledge of how the Health Ombudsman functions within public health system.

Anyone who lived through the 90s will remember an onslaught of get-rich-quick schemes that flooded radio, email chains and infomercials during that decade. Though most weren’t scams, many did promise wealth beyond anyone’s reach – one such popular get-rich-quick scheme was currency trading. Forex trading involves purchasing and selling money, much like exchanging currencies when traveling to different countries, except that traders purchase and sell currency pairs rather than individual ones. Profit is made by correctly anticipating whether a pair will increase or decrease in value against one another. Currencies are usually traded in pairs, and in order to trade effectively with them a trader must understand both currencies involved. Furthermore, they need to know how these interact with one another – for instance if Euro strength was greater than Dollar’s then the trader may purchase euros while selling dollars (known as long positions).
