Before he ever stepped on stage or in the studio, Hanson studied business and marketing. Published June 28, 2019

America's closest friend in the Middle East

Throughout its history, the United States has developed and nurtured friendships with allies around the globe. Some share similar economic interests. Others are tactical political partners.

A generation ago the word Cadillac became synonymous with excellence. When someone was trying to describe the very best of a certain category there was no greater compliment than to be labeled "the Cadillac of desk chairs," or "the Cadillac of kitchen appliances." The category didn't matter, the comparison to Cadillac did. Published June 4, 2019

World leader in natural gas

Qatar's modest history of fishing and pearling was forever changed in the mid-20th century with the discovery of oil reserves.

Oil paved the way to a variety of opportunities and in 1971 Qatar became an independent state. Published June 4, 2019

Don't like an outcome in life? No problem, just change the rules

Remember back in high school when your basketball team lost more games than it won? It was no fun, not for the team, not for the fans, and not for the students. Remember how rather than switch coaches or improve team training your school instead simply changed the rules? Each time your team scored a basket they were awarded 4 points rather than the standard 2. Was the rule change fair? No. It did meet your needs, however. Your school won more games.
