1. Investing vs. Gambling

    Finally, sports betting will be legal in North Carolina on March 11!  Gambling on sports is nothing new.  We’ve all participated in our office pools.  I remember filling out March Madness brackets as far back as seventh grade, with each game being worth around a quarter. A perfect bracket was worth about thirty dollars, which…

  2. The Long Term Care Puzzle
