Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis Accused of Sexual Assault

October 17th, 2017|Comments Off on Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis Accused of Sexual Assault

PNN – Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis has been accused of both sexual harassment and sexual assault in a newly filed lawsuit. These accusations echo those made last year by former Greenville County Sheriff Steve Loftis, who produced documents outlining a 2011 internal investigation into then-Deputy Lewis’ behavior towards female officers. Lewis resigned shortly thereafter–a move that Loftis insists was done to avoid the firing that Lewis knew was eminent.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of former Greenville County Sheriff Department employee Savanah Nabors. Nabors served as Lewis’ assistant starting shortly after his election to the position last year, and she continued on until April. In the lawsuit, Nabors alleges that Lewis began his inappropriate behavior almost immediately, starting with […]

The Uphill Battle Of Medical Outreach Just Got Easier

December 14th, 2017|0 Comments

If you live in a rural area, you know how hard it is to get the best of the best medical treatments become available to you. Not only are you always afraid that the local healthcare technology in surgeries may be behind what is being sold and bought in the cities, but you also hope that modern technology is also lacking. It’s a bit of an uphill battle at times because as residents it’s difficult to have your voice heard at times. The budgets of different regions, cities, and countries all vary and are perhaps the biggest deciding factor of what level of treatment and quality of care is available to you. Sometimes, however, even the medical staff share your […]

Challenges Facing The US Jobs Market In 2018

December 14th, 2017|0 Comments

When it comes to measuring the success of an economy, jobs are essential. An economy cannot boom and thrive without high numbers of available jobs and a low unemployment rate; these are the figures that govern the overall GDP of a country.

Jobs have long been a discussion point for American politicians on both sides of the aisle. The more jobs there are, the more people are at work, and the higher the income tax take is– so it’s fair to say this is one area where all politicians can agree.

At the present time, the US jobs market is doing fairly well. There’s plenty of new jobs being created month on month, and the unemployment figures make for nice reading. 2017 […]

Everyone wants to earn more income. For most people, this means earning enough to cover their costs and then funding their hobbies and interests. For this reason, the profit incentive exists for both individuals and corporations. Every person, unless supremely sheltered, must one day find a method of making and sustaining their inflow of money.

Some people are happy working a job, while some people are more interested in entrepreneurial ambitions. This latter category must focus on a wider range of variables, as their success will be directly influenced by every choice they make. Niche markets are available to make money from, but sometimes they can be temporary, part of a fashion and otherwise unreliable. For example, fidget spinners were selling […]

December 8th, 2017|0 Comments

We often hear about how borrowing is a bad thing and that debt causes nothing but problems that can drag on for years and decades. Is that always the case though? Or are there times when it makes sense to borrow money if it allows you to do things and buy things that would otherwise be impossible?

Money Talks

December 7th, 2017|0 Comments

Money really does talk in every aspect of life. It rules our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine. There aren’t many things that can be done in life without the power of money anymore. It controls all the governments around the world, and all businesses depend on the cash flow of money to be successful. All households rely on money to be able to raise themselves, and their families. But, we’re living in a time where unless you’re super rich, money can always feel a little bit tight. Most of us don’t have the luxuries the rich do, and we have to struggle to afford the things we want in life. Money has the power to influence all […]

Video game company Nintendo is set to launch their games on a console other than their own for the first time ever.

Breaking with history, the company will make some of its most popular titles, mostly older games from its discontinued Wii console, available on the Nvidia Shield in China. This is a set-top box, rather than a traditional games console, but it is still a big move forward for the company who have traditionally avoided licensing games of its own creations to rival console companies.

New Market

Currently, Nintendo, who is a Japanese company, do not sell their Nintendo switch – their newest games console – in China, with the majority of Chinese gamers using PCs and mobile devices to play […]

If You Work in the Emergency Services, You Always Need to be Learning

December 7th, 2017|0 Comments

It’s never easy working in the emergency services. You’re under pressure nearly always, you rarely get the full thanks that you deserve, and you always just need to have faith that you’re doing the right thing. That just comes with the territory of working in your profession. On top of all your primary responsibilities, you also need to be doing something else, too: learning. If you’re not always improving, then neither is society.

The Most Common Sidewalk Injuries

December 5th, 2017|0 Comments

It’s true that you’re most likely to be injured in your house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get injured elsewhere. Another common place is literally the area just outside your house and within your inner city. Often we don’t think of our hometowns as dangerous areas, but there’s a lot of injuries that can arise from being in them. Overall, that means that when we go out and about, there’s a lot of risks we can get ourselves into. These are a few of the most common injuries you can receive when you’re enjoying the outside world.

When you’re not the most well-seasoned of travelers, you may find yourself sticking to the same kinds of experiences that you’ve always had. Whether that’s hopping on a charter flight to golden coastlines, or loading up the car and camping under the stars. While there’s nothing really wrong with sticking to something you love, or following family traditions, you can be keeping your experiences quite closed by doing this. Because one of the biggest joys of travel is that it’s exciting and eclectic, energetic and different! So why not enjoy some of that?

Has The “Manly Man” Tag Finally Gone?

The days of the man of the family being the breadwinner are well and truly in the past, or is it? The dichotomy of being a manly man or just being part of the male sex is something that shouldn’t even be debated in the modern world. But, when we look to these classic images of what men are, you might think of your James Deans, Steve McQueens, or even something a bit more up-to-date, a la the 80s action stars. Is there any room for these types of men in the modern world?

Far from losing out on the growing popularity of vaping, some of the world’s leading tobacco companies are actually profiting from the booming vaping trend.

Winter Health Risks To Avoid

Winter is upon us, the countdown to the festive season has begun, and many of us are spending out evenings hibernating in the house in chunky pjs and 10 blankets. The winter is a stunning time of the year, with crisp mornings, snowfall and bright sunlight: but it can also be dangerous. If you’ve ever seen a wildlife programme, you’ll know that most mammals hibernate in the winter to stay safe. The same applies to us in a way: we don’t have fur to protect us from the harsh conditions which means we need to wrap up warm to avoid our hands freezing. It can be a time of year when many different health issues are aggravated or even […]

There are very few sports that don’t involve some level of teamwork. From basketball to soccer, the team will perform better when each player has the capacity to work well with others. Being selfish, or focussing solely on individual strengths is not going to cut it when playing a team sport. If you are somebody who wants to take all the glory, you should probably get into golf instead.

If you are currently involved in a team sport or are thinking about joining a club local to you, the following are what you need to focus on to become a better team player.

Should you be an employer, you need to know that it’s harder than ever to retain your employers. In this age of millennials, loyalty is an issue, as outlined in the Deloitte Millennial Survey.

What’s The Populism Behind Brexit?

November 2nd, 2017|Comments Off on What’s The Populism Behind Brexit?

The world is going mad. It’s the bold statement made by Bruce A. Ritter, a journalist at the Real Truth, when describing the surge of violent outbursts throughout the world. From trying to get even with a relative after an unresolved argument with poison to burning down a spouse’s boat, the age of rage seems to see people take disproportionate actions to correct a wrong they felt. While some of them might regret their choice of behaviors afterward, there’s no denying that there’s more underneath the emotional wild card. At a personal level, people are looking for a quick revenge path for a situation that they believe has been caused by a specific and identifiable individual. Unable to cope with […]

Spartanburg Party Leaders Unify Around ‘Penny Tax’ in Joint Press Conference

October 31st, 2017|Comments Off on Spartanburg Party Leaders Unify Around ‘Penny Tax’ in Joint Press Conference

Early Monday morning, a curious alliance of Spartanburg’s political spheres presented their unified support for the new “Penny Tax,” a temporary 1% increase in the county’s sales tax, being offered for the consideration of the voting public. The funds obtained via the new tax would be used solely for the purpose of building a new courthouse.  Standing in the cold air in Morgan Square was Allen Smith, President of the Spartanburg Chamber of Commerce; Shelly Roehrs, chairman of the county Democratic Party; Josh Kimbrell, Chairman of the county Republican Party; and Karen Martin, president of the county’s Tea Party organization.
