Combining Philanthropic Spirit with Professional Skills
By Monica Eaton-Cardone
Whether it's helping to feed those in need, cleaning up a local park, or mentoring younger kids, Americans overall contribute a fair amount of volunteer hours each year. Studies show more than 25% of Americans volunteer regularly, contributing a collective total of 7.9 billion charitable service hours, or $184 billion, each year.

Thought Leader Spotlight: Michelle Caruso Cabrera
By Fatimah Gilliam
It might have been a twist of fate with my high school teacher, but I quickly realized how much I loved telling stories. When I was younger, I thought I was going to be a criminal psychiatrist.

It's the Law? Traffic Rules that May Surprise You
Where do quirky-sounding traffic laws come from? It's impossible to say in every case. City and state traffic codes are full of laws and ordinances that don't always make sense at first glance. "Constituents can go to their legislators and request new laws," says Duane Kokesch, director of the National Traffic Law Center.
