I saw an advertisement the other day for a neurosurgery practice. It made me feel kind of weird. I totally understand that all sorts of businesses can and should advertise, but when it comes to medical stuff like specialist doctors and prescription drugs, it makes me worry that I’m supposed to be figuring out if I need this stuff. Like, should I be checking constantly to see if I need brain surgery? How am I even supposed to do ...

I need some guidance. I recently inherited a property that I plan to convert into a few rentable apartment units. A friend of mine, who’s a realtor, said the process isn’t as simple as it sounds, and that there’s a great deal involved in being a successful landlord. Everything I read emphasizes using caution when it comes to marketing and finding ways to simplify the administrative duties. I also found many articles warning...

I could use some guidance. I’m a senior graduating in May with a degree in microbiology. I’ve really enjoyed learning about infectious diseases and how they spread. Unfortunately, I haven’t found working in the laboratory much fun. I explained to my advisor that I want to work on prevention through better policy and public education. I discussed running a clinic and possibly a trauma care center one day. She encouraged me t...

Many of us are familiar with brick-and-mortar casinos, even if we’ve never been to one. We also know about betting on things like horse races. But what about online gambling? Is there are reason to do one or the other, besides the obvious factor of whether or not you feel like going to a “real” casino, or are they pretty much identical besides the physical difference? Gambling is gambling, of course: you risk money, you wi...

need some quick guidance. My mom recently bought my dad a vintage Porsche 959 for his sixtieth birthday, which is a pretty big deal. She struck a deal with a collector who lives in Germany, since it wasn’t for sale in the US. The issue now is getting it here. At first, he had business travels in Europe that overlapped perfectly, but the trip was canceled. So, my mom is freaking out about what to do. She called yesterday to tel...

My roommate and I could use some basic guidance. We’re both undergraduate students who want to invest a little on the side.

Few people know about our plans, since we haven’t been advertising them. We’re both a little nervous about making poor decisions and squandering our money. That’s why we could use some tips from someone more knowledgeabl...

I could use some serious help. I’m taking an honors introduction to financial markets class this semester, and it’s far more challenging than I expected. This coming week is a perfect example. I’m supposed to research something called the “iron butterfly” strategy, and present an overview of it to our class. The presentation is only about five minutes long, but the topic is really technical. I’m not very good with ma...

I recently got my driver’s license. I know, I know, it’s about time! I had older siblings and a lot of friends who drove and, I don’t know, I guess I just never felt much urgency about it. But I’ve finally done it, and I’m ready to hit the road! My question for the experts is this: do you have any specific tips about staying safe on the road? I know the basics, of course, but I was hoping to get some more surprising or ...

I have a few friends who have graduated. Some have really high-powered jobs, while others work in offices or even outdoors.

Is it as w...

I love to write, so I’ve been maintaining a blog while I’ve been in school. The thing is, I’d really like to do this more seriously. However, that’s not really possible right now, because nobody really knows that my blog exists! I write about news and general-interest stuff, so I think there might be a market for my blog, but there’s no way to know right now because nobody is paying attention to it. How can I bring my bl...
