Are IKEA’s Down Alternate Comforter Allergy Free [and hypoallergenic]?

ikea-down-comforter-allergy-freeToday, we are going to be answering the question: “Are IKEA’s Down Alternate Comforter Allergy Free?”

This is very important because we sleep for 1/3 of our lives and we need to know that our comforter will not cause us discomfort — that would be a somewhat ironic.

So I will put on my investigative hat and determine for you whether the IKEA alternate comforter is allergy free!

Is “The” Capitalized In A Title?

capitalize-the-in-titlesShould the word “The” be capitalized in a title?

I haven’t studied grammar in years and I can’t remember whether the word The should be capitalized in the title or not. Help!” Thanks, Barb from Sherman Oaks.

Online Dating: Get Lovin’ While Looking for Love

online-datingOn a recent visit to San Francisco, I learned that a large number of guys do Match.com (as well as Tinder obviously) to get dates.

These are not guys you would consider pathetic or lame but guys who could get dates in the real world.  However, they get even more dates on Match.com and the rewards are rather…instantaneous.

On a Wednesday, my friends and I were setting up a round of golf.  We called Jim to be the fourth player.

“Jim, can you play on Friday?”, we asked.

“Nope,” he responded, “I’m going out with this girl from Match.”  Saturday?  “Got a lunch date from Match and then going out with another one Saturday night.”  Sunday?  “Going on a picnic with a girl from Match.”  After the picnic?  “Got a dinner date.”

My friends and I celebrated our independence last year on The Strand in Hermosa Beach.   The Strand is the sidewalk area just behind the beach but in front of the houses.  The Strand carries weight.  People use and abuse this term regularly, so much so that it’s often met with skepticism.Read More

Income Equality and Standard of Living | Does Income Equality Lead To A Higher Standard of Living?

income-inequality-standard-of-livingIn this article, we will take a look at countries with high income equality AND high income inequality and ask the question:  Between these two, which leads to a better standard of living for the whole?
