Written by Thursday, September 29, 2016
By Veronica Mackey The first of 3 presidential debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, held on September 26, was for the most part predictable. Each candidate spoke and acted as they have during the campaign. It was obvious that Trump, who said he didn’t want to be “over prepared,” wasn’t.

The financial changes that come with owning, the need to consider planting longer-term roots in a neighborhood, and new neighborhood rules are things renters may not be thinking about enough. Moving can already be one of the most stressful times in a…

Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi announced on Wednesday that her government will not support the city’s bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. She cited financial debt as the major reason, and said pursuing the idea would be “irresponsible.” Explaining that currently Rome can barely pay for city sanitation, Raggi said conditions for hosting a delegation of young athletes, officials and visitors would be “unlivable.” The news which ended Rome’s Olympic dreams has now boosted…
