McQuiston: Man’s Best Friend Or A Liability?

on April 6, 2017 - 5:10pm

I am an animal lover, but dogs are my personal favorite. They are great company and it’s in their nature to seek your approval and love. Dogs are said to be “man’s best friend”, but have you ever thought about how your insurance could be affected by the type of dog you decide to own?

An insurer has the right to non-renew or even refuse to write your homeowner’s policy based on the breed of dog you own. There are specific breeds of dogs that have a negative connotation due to their aggressive reputation.

And if you’re a member of the so-called “Sandwich Generation,” you may well have plenty of stress to deal with — especially financial stress. And that’s why you may want to look at this month as an opportunity to explore ways of “de-stressing” yourself.

Letter To The Editor: Grateful To Smith’s Employees

By Grateful Los Alamos Resident
 
I'd like to thank the person or persons at Smith’s who have kept the mobility carts for handicapped use fully charged and ready for use in the last six months or so.
 
In the past, most, if not all, of these carts were not available for use because of fully discharged batteries. No one would plug them in. Sometimes all 12 carts were not usable and I had to go back home without shopping and try again the next day.
 
So thanks again to every Smith’s employee who has been helping all of us who need the carts for shopping.

Udall, Heinrich Fight For Equal Pay For Women

on April 4, 2017 - 3:44pm

U.S. SENATE News:
  • Women in New Mexico make 85 cents compared to their male counterparts — and Hispanic women make just 56 cents compared to white men

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich marked Equal Pay Day and reintroduced the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that would strengthen the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and guarantee that women can challenge pay discrimination and hold employers accountable.

“It’s long past time that Congress passed the Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure that women in New Mexico and across the country receive equal pay for equal work,”

Letter To The Editor: Pay Equity Makes ‘Cents’

on April 3, 2017 - 9:36am
By JUDY PRONO
Public Policy Chair
AAUW-Los Alamos 

Equity pay makes “cents” … that’s an understatement. In fact, for women in the workplace, pay equity would increase lifetime earnings by as much as $2 million for those with graduate degrees and by more than $1 million for those with undergraduate degrees.

That would mean more money to pay off student loans, put food on the table, and save for retirement. And pay equity isn’t just a women’s issue—it’s a family issue.

World Futures: PEOPLE ... Sustainable Long Term Encapsulation – Including Mental

• World Futures:  What Do We Need?

In the domain of science fiction (e.g., Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek…) we see space vehicles zooming around the universe with human beings on board seemingly doing well pursuing a mission, discovering new worlds, finding new life forms, and engaging in combat.

Many aspects of the voyage, however, are taken for granted since it is a fictional universe. Perhaps most important in the “for-granted” category are energy, mass, time, and the sanity of the humans.

Wiemann: Teach Your Children Well … About Finances And Investing

Save for a goal. In our highly commercialized culture, it’s almost inevitable that your children will eventually become somewhat acquisitive. Obviously, it’s important to teach them that they can’t have everything – and they certainly can’t have everything right now. So, once they are old enough to receive an allowance or to earn money in some fashion, encourage them to set a goal for something they want, such as a toy or video game, and to put money aside every week for that goal.
