  • Houston flooded: what are your rights as a renter?

    HOUSTON, Texas – With Houston flooded once again, it’s still difficult to estimate the scope of the damage. And while much attention has been given to home-owners and the hit their houses took, it’s the tenants who are sometimes kept under the radar… or should we say under the water. “As a tenant to apartment complexes you don’t get the same relief that home-owners get: you have renters insurance but it only does so much,” expressed Tiffany Richardson. She rents […]

  • This is how you can help flood victims

    HOUSTON, TX – We want the rain to go away, but it looks like the weather has other plans for Houston.  Thousands of residents have been affected by the Tax Day Flood. Their houses destroyed, their furniture gone, their savings evaporated once again. “It’s pretty bad, and the fact that it happened 11 months after the last flood is what’s most devastating of all” said Southwest Houston home-owner Steve Bunin. “On Monday morning I was in a raft, trying to […]

  • What to do if your car or house was damaged in the flood

    HOUSTON, TX – It was supposed to be a hundred-year flood, but it looks like these types of natural disasters are becoming common place in the Bayou City. “I had my moment when I realized that I just lost everything,” cried Asia Craft, a resident at Meyergrove Apartment Homes on N Braeswood and South Loop.

    BROOKLYN, NY – Is this what they call a New York state of mind? At the Thursday night Democratic debate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders clashed – literally – one last time, days prior to the Empire State’s primary. Candidates played their familiar tunes on issues such as foreign policy, college tuition, health care and the economy.

  • How often do healthy couples have sex?

    ONTARIO, Canada – What would life look like without sex? That’s probably a question for a monk, a Jedi master or a bunch of very unlucky guys. But how often do we need to get laid to be able to say that we have a healthy sex life? Apparently, the answer for married couples is once a week.

    NEW YORK, New York – What do you think? Do aliens exist? To answer that question, there’s a team willing to go the distance.  Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner want to send starships to another galaxy, to find proof of extraterrestrial life. The Starshot project is also sponsored by Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg. The initiative is quite ambitious.  But if you’re in a hurry, this space mission isn’t for you.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – One dollar for the guys and 79¢ for the ladies. Sounds like a ripoff, right? It’s Equal Pay Day, folks, the day to think and protest the lack thereof. Why April 12? It’s the day women would finally make the same amount of money men earned last year. To add insult to injury, minority women on average have a much worse deal. Under #EqualPay, celebrities and regular folks are raising their voices on social media against discrimination. […]

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Even if the end of the world comes tomorrow, don’t hold your breath: your student loans will still be there the day after. They’re kind of the financial version of Twinkies. “Student loans will not go away in bankruptcy,” explained LaTasha Goudeau, Director of Scholarships and Financial Aid at the University of Houston-Downtown. However, the big picture may explode soon.  The U.S. Department of Education says more than 40% of the nearly 22 million borrowers with federal […]
