Socially Responsible Investing – Are You Ready To Invest
We grew up in world in which the news about the failure of Social Security is almost as constant as the news about the failure HMOs. We all know that it is unlikely that many people who are currently contributing to social security will ever see the money we’ve invested into the program. At least these funds are probably not coming back to darken our doors. This means we need to find alternatives and end our reliance on the government for a comfortable retirement that doesn’t appear to be in the woodworks. For this reason we are seeing more and more people in the twenty and thirty something generation taking matters ... market research, surveys and trends

Potty in the USA: Why we're slow to the toilet
Tinier and tinier bottoms are making their way to the potty these days. In my Santa Monica, Calif., community, and other strongholds of baby wearing, co-sleeping and home birthing, a growing number of parents practice "elimination communication" -- a method that starts babies on the toilet in the first six months of life. My first reaction: furrowed brow. Is that physically possible? And isn't toilet training supposed to unfold slowly and delicately in the preschool years, involving the dispensing of M&M's, Potty Power videos and books about the ubiquity of pooping? Apparently, it is possible. And not only ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
