The Great Gatsby In my English class our teacher made us pick a classic and I picked The Great Gatsby because I had too. In the beginning I was having a rough time connecting and understanding the book. The more I read the book I thought of the American dream and what my American dream would be. For those who don’t know what The Great Gatsby is, it is about a millionaire, Jay Gatsby, who is unhappy with his life because he cannot be with the woman he loves, Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, the narrator, is Gatsby’s neighbor and later in the book becomes Gatsby’s good friend. When Daisy and Gatsby were on their way back to Gatsby’s place, Daisy accidently hits and kills a woman named Myrtle. Gatsby’s love makes him protect Daisy and take the blame for the accident. When Myrtle’s husband...

Dear Mr. Buffet First and foremost, I would like to say I admire your business acumen that I have viewed my entire 2nd half of my adult life. I am posting this letter as an open letter, I hope you don’t mind. I loved your idea with the Earned Income Credit being increased for the average income to be a living wage. Because of your concern for the masses of people, I am studying a problem that will affect hundreds of millions of people and the majority of people are not even being educated or aware. This is a problem that will affect people more than the 2008 economic collapse. The first half of my life, I wasn't too aware of who you were. I had a brief NFL career and was part of the statistics of being part of the 78% of athletes that will be broke in their first 2 years of...

After seeing the long queues outside the banks and the post office , I was bit worried about the current scenario. There were many questions in my mind like "Are these 50 days enough for Our people to get there currency exchanged ??" or "Are the no. of banks in our country is enough to cater 125 Cr people?" or "Do we have any other Solution , by which we can accelerate the currency exchanging procedure ??" . I Think We have. India is the world largest Democracy, We have the highest no. of voters around the world and If we can manage So much no. of voters during Elections with the help of our Respected Teachers and Schools , Then I think in this need of hour We can ask them to Support the nation. As I have calculated that a school can easily cater 10k-20k (As per the Size of the...

"Dear George I am a basic rate taxpayer. When, on 8th July 2015, you sat down after your Budget, I was nearly £2,000 a year worse off because of changes to the tax regime. Yet the media lauded your Budget as a tax-cutting success. How did this discrepancy arise? It arose because I am the owner of a small business and I remunerate myself via salary and dividends. 8th July 2015 marked the day when the Conservative party finally ditched any pretence to being the party of small business; the era of "crony capitalism" (corporatism) is now accepted and openly touted by the establishment. Small business is so "yesterday". So yes, I have a vested interest in whingeing. I admit it. But let me put to paper my thoughts on why this new taxation of dividends is so damaging. First, let...

Hello Everyone, Thousands of students from all over the world are unable to get admission in their dream universities. They are left hopeless and they think every door is now closed. Then there are those who do get admission to the university they want to but their family won't allow it. I am one of such miserable students. I got my offer letter from University Of Leeds a few days back. Although I was too excited to get it, a part of my head was unhappy. Why? Well, it dreaded my parent's reaction. I knew they won't be as much pleased as I was. I knew they would not approve of me going to UK. And yes, my assumptions were more than true. I asked them and they denied. As simple as that for them. But no one thought how desperate they were going to leave me.''We don't money with which to...

I am writing this not for sympathy, as I know my problems are of my own doing, but am writing this to highlight how easy it can be for people to get themselves in to trouble gambling, and hopefully stop at least one person getting themselves in to debt they cannot afford. In the last three months, I have managed to lose nearly £50k gambling online. I am now on the verge of losing my house, and am drowning under the debt I have mounted up/ This process of losing money is all too easy online, and I truly believe some new legislation needs to be brought in to stop this happening to anyone else. On a few occasions I have managed to get myself a large amount in profit, but due to the length of time it takes companies to process withdrawals (3-5 days in some cases) and the fact that it is...

Dear industry stakeholders, fans and observers, By now, you have probably heard about the launch of EquiLottery, The Greatest Two Dollars in Sports. We have received coverage from every major publication in the Thoroughbred industry, which helped drive over 5,000 people to EquiLottery.com in our first 72 hours. We made our initial public splash last Friday when industry allies Sen. Damon Thayer and Rep. David Osborne gave EquiLottery a voice in their monthly Licensing...

Dear Sir, Would it be presumptuous to tell you how I really feel? Share my emotions? Lay bare my belabored soul? I agree with your smirking look of disdain and superiority entirely. You sure know how to handle yourself when dealing with sales associates. You’re absolutely right to use your stop-right-there-I-don’t-want-you-to-try-to-sell-me-anything-even-though-I-came-to-the-store-today-to-make-a-purchase “Not interested” as soon as I start to welcome you to my register. Why? Because I NEED it. Let’s be honest, when I tell folks I work here for “beer money” or because “it’s a refreshing change of pace” from the tedium of my 9-to-5, required-a-bachelor’s-degree-so-I-got-one-and-now-I’m-drowning-in-debt-and-need-a-second-job-to-afford-my-little-house-in-the-iffy-neighborhood-I-...

Could you please take a look at the student loan scheme when you prepare your next budget? I realise that your 2015 surplus target is looking increasingly out of reach, but I have a suggestion to help you get back there sustainably. New Zealand’s student loan borrowers are a parasite on the Government’s books, and a quick glance at the state of the Government’s balance sheet shows these parasites are in plague proportions. Solving this plague will definitely improve your chances of returning to surplus sustainably over the medium-term. Despite education being an investment in oneself, as evident by the higher average earnings of tertiary graduates, the Government seems content with continuing to subsidise graduates even once they have embarked on a successful professional...
