Fantasy Pool and Fantasy Football! Can I make it happen?

So, my buddies and I are looking to build the ultimate bachelor pad. We are in college in Brisbane, Australia and want to build a pool to go along with the amazing barbeque setup that we have. We host some pretty wild parties and want to start hosting fantasy sports parties as well. The idea is to create an atmosphere where watching sports ends up being an all-day event. What type of setup do you recommend, and what should I be taking...

Tired of a boss and seeking opportunity

In the last few years, my cousin, who’s a few years older than I am, has been moving between jobs.  This last move was not voluntary, and he was unemployed for a while. He finally had enough and started looking for opportunities to sell items that he can buy wholesale. I’m a business major, so I decided to help him do some research and planning. He wants to be his own boss and sell items that are in high demand in the different online...

Green gifts for girlfriends going away

I want to become a better gift-giver, and I know where to start. I’ve got a friend who’s graduating and going to be a science teacher. It’s exactly what she has always wanted to do, but we are really going to miss her, and I’m sure she is going to miss us (when she isn’t living her dream). She’s one of my best friends; there’s a group of five of us who have been really close for three years now. I want to get her a gift that’s from...

I work a part-time job as an admin assistant. I’ve been asked to develop and create the ability to run background checks on prospective and current employees and vendors and obtain basic public information. However, the company I work for is small, and they do not want to sign up for a service or pay monthly fees for each piece of information.

How car insurance works (and why)

Well, here I go! I’m in the real world now. I think I’m almost ready for the responsibilities I’ll have. However, I must admit that some “adult” stuff still confuses me. So, I’m here to ask the experts about one thing that embarrasses me to not understand: car insurance. I know how most insurance works, but car insurance is weird to me. People tell me it doesn’t cover my car, but the other person’s car. However, I hear ads saying...

Mental Health and Recovery

My older brother has been suffering from mental health issues and substance abuse problems for years–almost as long as I can remember. He has managed to stay sober on and off for a few months at a time, but he’s never had long-term success, and he still deals with things like depression all of the time. I worry about him, especially because things seem so static. He has been living with my parents for years, going to the same...
