In our society, the more money you have the better access you have to pretty much everything – from healthcare to art. For some people, there are pathways to making huge amounts of mone…

Tourism boosters say without the revenue generated by tourists we’d all be paying way more in taxes and our cost of living would be through the roof. Whichever of these …
 
If you want to know the answer to a question, all you have to do is ask Alexa, Siri, or Google. If your question happens to be, “What is the capital of Latvia?” or something else pretty straightforward, Siri, Alexa, or Google will do just fine. But if you’re looking for information that’s more complex, or if you have to be absolutely certain that w…
