The landscape of work-life balance has changed dramatically over the last couple of decades, and the nurturing of personal relationships is now more important than ever.

The Crucial Role That Social Welfare Professionals Play In Society

The role of a social worker is performed in numerous settings which include institutions, counseling services, fields and everything related to an individual’s everyday issues that are expected to stunt one’s progress in life and society. An individual who adopts serving mankind as a profession indicates that a person nourishes a strong and passionate energy for human welfare and thus, is all set to counsel people and solve their personal and social issues.

In the world of today, social welfare work is a proper profession and is directly associated with community improvement, individual welfare, stable public administration and health and consistent societal development. On a social scale, this means bringing about strong prevalence of health, medicine, education, and awareness about substance abuse. This also includes legal protection and assistance by the government, to contribute to public management and administration. These are just some of the issues encountered by a social worker, and are immensely challenging as well.

What Qualities Are Needed For Self Employment

Self employment does seem to be quite fascinating and one of the best ways of leading your life, but just pause and think – are you really cut out for self employment? There are people who can do quite well being self employed and there are people who just cannot get into the drift. So, where do you fit in?

Green Careers More Than You Think

Some say that the takeover of the House of Representatives and several state governments byRepublicans in November of 2010 spells doom for green careers and a clean energy future. However, let’s be fair: President Obama had a two-year window in which he could have acted aggressively to move the country toward sustainable energy.

Sadly, instead of acting like Franklin D. Roosevelt, he chose British prime minister Neville Chamberlain as a role model and pursued a policy of appeasement. And frankly, since 2006 too many Democrats in Washington D.C. revealed themselves as being firmly in the back pocket of Exxon-Mobil, BP and the rest.

Requirements For Us Expats For Filing Income Tax Returns

Living outside USA will not get you rid of the requirement to file annual income tax returns. Citizens and US green card holders are required by law to file their tax returns each year even if they have stayed outside United States or have not generated any income in United States of America. They should continue to file their returns same as when they were living in US if their annual gross income as an individual is in excess of $ 9,350 or $ 18,700 when filing as married jointly. The filing of tax return by expats is also required to claim any tax benefit including foreign earned income exclusions or foreign tax credits. Let us further study these requirements.

There are some special provisions in place which are applicable for expat taxpayers to make it convenient for them to file their returns. The filing of state tax returns may not be due but it is still mandatory for all of them to file their federal tax returns to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) department.
