The Silence Of Susan Rice

riceScott Johnson –  By letter to Susan Rice dated February 8, 2018, Senators Grassley and Graham posed 12 numbered questions. I posted the Graham/Grassley letter in “Rice papers the file.” By letter dated February 23, 2018, white collar criminal defense lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler has now responded to the Grassley/Graham letter on Rice’s behalf. I posted Ruemmler’s letter nearby this morning in “Susan Rice responds, sort of,” and am embedding it again at the bottom.

Let’s take an inventory of Rice’s response to the questions: answeredpartially answeredanswered narrowly, or not answered. I have italicized my accounting below, subject to further thought and analysis:

Question 1. Did you send the email attached to this letter to yourself? Do you have any reason to dispute the timestamp of the email?


Question 2. When did you first become aware of the FBI’s investigation into allegations of collusion between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia?

Not answered. Continue reading “The Silence Of Susan Rice”

How an MBA Benefits Self-Made Entrepreneurs

business skillsSuccess stories of entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates and Richard Branson often focus on the fact that neither of these two highly successful and influential individuals earned a college degree. Whilst society may tell you that a college degree is essential if you want to work in a successful career, this is clearly not always the case if you have a saleable business idea that is bound to grow. However, with an increasing number of people now starting their own businesses and working from home, more entrepreneurs are considering furthering their education to improve their knowledge and skills, along with increasing their credibility in the industry. Here are some of the best reasons for self-made entrepreneurs to invest in studying for an MBA.

#1. Improve Your Knowledge

Although anybody can start a business of their own, there’s a significant amount of learning which needs to be done before you can understand how to run a business successfully. When you first started out with a business idea, you probably knew a lot less than you do today, and much of it may have been through trial and error. For many business owners with little prior experience, learning is usually done through making mistakes and trying new things to figure out what works. However, studying for an MBA will help you skip making mistakes by providing you with a solid foundation of proven business knowledge to go by when making decisions for your company.

What’s the buzz about ‘green jewelry’ all about

While jewelry makes a great gift for all occasions it’s not always the benign, love-filled gift we expect it to be.

While many of us like wearing jewelry and expensive stones we’re beginning to realize the ways these stones are mined may reflect too high a price in human treatment. And this worries us.

Jewelry, especially diamonds, are often linked to conflict. This is because the price of weapons and wars are often paid with diamonds. Diamonds exchanged for guns ultimately cost lives and limbs. Obviously, a stone or piece of jewelry worn with such an origin is tainted, which is not a pleasing thought in the least. In fact, the term ‘blood diamond’ applies to stones used in these types of exchanges.

Fortunately there are now companies hard at work identifying jewelry for customers that is conflict-free, ethical and sourced without any blood being shed. Continue reading “What’s the buzz about ‘green jewelry’ all about”
