Just like homeowners, renters can tap into the short-term rental market through Airbnb. Of course, it helps if you’re on good terms with your landlord, and there are other concerns to consider. Namely, liability insurance. Not just for you, but for your landlord.
Our brains are wired to rekindle a romance, especially if it developed when we were young. It’s not unlike the attachment a baby forms with its mother. Sounds creepy, right? But it’s just science.

While the law mainly protects against libel and slander, the ownership of the story of your life depends on a variety of factors. How much of your life is private if you’re involved in a major news event that receives wide publicity? If you hold public office, to what degree can you expect a degree of privacy?
