Is it time to decriminalize prostitution? Two New York bills answer yes in unique ways

Today in the majority of the United States, it is a crime to sell sex, buy it, or promote its sale. The Sex Trade Survivors Justice & Equality Act would decriminalize prostitution in New York state while maintaining punitive measures against buyers and pimps. Opponents suggest this law would only push the illegal sex trade further underground and seek full decriminalization for everyone involved. Although incorrectly labeled the world's oldest profession, prostitution has been on the minds of l...

Why You Shouldn’t Purchase a Timeshare

Timeshares are vacation properties that several people share partial ownership of – usually over a time span of about 25 years. They’re typically located in exotic locations that are popular tourist destinations. Starting in Europe in the 1960s, the concept of timeshares spread quickly to the United States.
