Re: Will

To do trusts skips probate. So it depends on where you live whether trusts are worth the cost. Setting up trust for the two of you might cost a couple thousand dollars.

Trusts do not avoid inheritance taxes if you are fortunate enough to [more]

The long answer:

Well, theory has become a messy word with one meaning for laymen and another for scientists. In science a theory and a law are pretty interchangeable and explain all observed phenomena. Something not yet proven to explain [more]

You are absolutely right. In the Federal Government, researchers have no Civil Service protection because they pretend you can only do the project you are currently on (no matter what projects you have done in the past). It is crazy, [more]

I have no quarrel with your post; however, I think there may be no greenhouse gas savings in using natural gas over coal because of leakage in its production. Perhaps this problem can be overcome. Still there are good reasons to [more]

Re: McDonald's lays off 70 American accountants

I think this is a criminal misuse of the H-1B visa and I have always opposed these visas, especially when I was a young scientist. Presumably people on such visas are filling jobs because no U.S. talent exists. It was not intended to save money and [more]

The Week In Stocks

Although the stock market indices went up a bit for the week, it didn't feel like it. All of a sudden on the NYSE, the 52-week highs dropped below 100/day on September 9th and continued throughout this last week. Not only that, but the new [more]

Losing Cursor

Every so often my cursor just disappears. If I hit return, it comes back. What causes this? Is my keyboard going bad?

Sometimes when I keep typing it seems to come back after a few missing characters.
