The goal of this event is for attendees to learn about the importance of sustainability in business and the different methods with which they can show their environmental and social values.

I’m sure my definition of equality is similar to what most Americans think of as equality. Everyone has the same civil rights; the laws apply to everyone and no one is treated differently. I’d be willing to bet that just about everyone is on board with that.
What too many people fail to realize is that when you treat everyone the same, when everyone enjoys the same rights, not everyone is going to be happy and by that, I mean being equal means you have to all play by the same rules. No one gets an advantage; no one group’s particular ideology should trump another’s and that applies to everyone on either side of whatever the argument is.

After a long offseason of waiting and wondering, baseball fans can rejoice as the MLB 2021 Season is just around the corner. Even though it’s Spring Training, the fact of the matter is that baseball is back baby!
Now it’s been an interesting offseason since the World Series with a lot of teams making moves and trying to load up for the upcoming season. But out of the 30 MLB teams, here are a few that you definitely should be paying attention to in the MLB 2021 Season.
Impeachment is over and done with. It was a perfect political storm for the White House.
As the effort to try and convict former President Donald Trump ramped up, many expressed concerns that the move would derail President Joe Biden’s agenda. Just days after the Jan. 6 riots, Democratic Representative James Clyburn floated an idea to delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate until after Biden’s first 100 days.
“I do have concerns,” Clyburn said on CNN when asked about the impact of impeachment on Biden’s agenda. “Let's give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running, and maybe we will send the articles some time after that.”
While many disagreed with Clyburn’s suggestion, concerns over the impact of a trial in the Senate just as Biden is attempting to jumpstart his presidency were rampant.
“For Biden and the Democrats the proceedings this week presented a strategic challenge,” journalist Peter Nicholas wrote in The Atlantic. “A long and complicated trial would risk derailing Biden’s stimulus package, slowing down his Cabinet confirmations, and distracting from his efforts to combat the pandemic.”
Perhaps that is true.

Well with the final seconds ticked off during the Super Bowl last week brought the 2020 NFL Season to a close. But with the closing of one sport’s season last week, another sport will be kicking off their 2021 Season this upcoming Sunday. The sport that I am referring to is NASCAR.
And what a way to kick off the beginning of the 2021 NASCAR Season than with its own version of the Super Bowl. Yup, you read that right folks. Unlike other sports where the big game concludes a season, NASCAR opens up their season with the biggest and famous race in American Motorsports: The Daytona 500.
