I was looking to join some Yoga class and was intrigued by Art Of Living as i keep hearing so much about it and being highly skeptical by nature decided to do some investigation.

It’s that time of the year again, a favorite time for any US expatriate — the time to ensure you’ve filed the absurd TD F 90-22.1 Report Of Foreign Bank And Financial Accounts form. It’s a huge waste of time, but one expats are forced to endure or face a fine of up to $500,000 and five years in prison.

These are used to keep the animal and vegetable fats from turning rancid. Then there are “anti foaming” agents like dimethylpolysiloxene. This material is a suspected carcinogen and an established mutagen, tumorigenic, and reproductive effector. It is also flammable. (more…)

I feel your pain. Like you, I am a retirement plan trustee. This is a difficult time for us. Many trustees are being sued over breach of fiduciary duty; Congress is examining 401(k) expenses; and the stock market is volatile. What is a retirement plan trustee to do? (more…)
