By Brandon Miller, CFP– You probably think your financial decisions to save or spend, buy or sell are based on taking in all the information at hand and selecting the right option for you. Psychologists know better. The truth is, every decision you make is influenced by subconscious biases. Financial decisions are no different. You can do all the research you want on investing, but if you don’t account for your blind spots, your decisions might have unintended consequences. Preconceptions can sometimes work in your favor, but just as often, they can cause you to lose money, opportunities, or ..read more

Let’s Talk About Women

By Joanie Juster– As I write this column, women have been dominating the news lately, for better and worse. I’ll get to the better (really, fabulous!) in a moment, but let’s start with one of the worst: the Arizona Supreme Court, whose justices on April 9 ruled to enforce an 1864 law (!) that bans nearly all abortions. The law, which predates Arizona’s statehood by nearly 50 years, provides no exceptions for rape or incest, only allowing an abortion if the mother’s life is in jeopardy. Under the law, it is suggested that doctors can be prosecuted for terminating pregnancies. The backlash from ..read more

Jackie Biskupski and Laura Milliken Gray, founders of JL Productions By Laura Milliken Gray, Attorney at Law– Last year, state legislatures across the country proposed over 500 anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ laws. These laws attack the trans community, bar DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) programs, and try to ban rainbow flags in classrooms; all are designed to strip the LGBTQ+ community of our rights and protections. Like many queer Americans, I feel a sense of helplessness as I watch our rights being eroded. As a scrappy lesbian lawyer who spent over 25 years in the legal trenches of uber-c ..read more

Ann Rostow: Transgender Bunnies Unite

By Ann Rostow– Transgender Bunnies Unite Here’s an odd one that I somehow missed earlier. In late February, a divided three judge panel at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit reinstated Indiana’s ban on transgender youth healthcare on its own initiative with no appeal from the state. The ban had never been enforced, since a lower court had issued a preliminary injunction against the law a few weeks before it was to go into effect last summer, thus allowing a challenge to the law to proceed. The State of Indiana appealed that injunction, but did not ask the higher court to revers ..read more
