10 Signs That It Might Be Time To Quit Your Job
Now that Christmas has passed, many people look to the New Year for a new start. You know, ”out with the old and in with the new”. Bottom line, the New Year is a perfect time for a new beginning. As I made the decision to leave my old job after 9 wonderful years, I initially made a pro/con list of why I should stay and why I should go. Well, I won’t bore you with that...

One thing I love about being a journalist is the people I meet. Case in point: a retired judge named Mike Duggan whom I met last month while working on my final report for NBC4 in Los Angeles.

Two emails, specifically two receipts from iTunes, telling me that Apple has charged almost $80 dollars to my credit card for shit I didn’t even know that I had bought. At first I thought it must be a mistake, it had to be. There was NO WAY I’d purchase game apps (one cost a whopping 40 bucks). So, I did some investigation...
A powerful wind storm blew into Southern California overnight. Actually things got really insane right about as I was arriving home at midnight. That’s when the Hurricane Force winds blew out powerlines and then sparked an explosion and fire near our home. Fearing an evacuation, I immediately started packing up essential papers, clothing, pictures and other items. What did MeHubs do?...
