healthcare is going to be offshored. Countries are gearing up for healthcare tourism. You hop on a plane go to a spa and get several procedures done cheap. Once insurance companies get on board you will have no choice in the matter. You will get your choice of doctors from a list outside the country.

Upload is what matters. He is married to an internet personality who probably uploads video often. The ability to upload hd video in 1/20 the time is a big benifit. You don't want to wait 20 min to upload a 20 min vid. Not when it can take 1 minutes. The 19 min difference can get your content out before other sites.

2nd the above. Send her to a trade school. The nature of the work is local. It has some risk of automation but little risk of being offshored. As long as we need water plumbing will be needed. Electrician might be less future proof depending on advances in wireless power. Car repair will see some decline with electric cars. (they have less parts)

Google results are biased based on your old search history and based on the data Google has collected about you. What Google displays for to you is different than what it displays to the parent. You can type in the same terms but Google will order the results based on your history. Parent gets a bunch homeopathy pages. You get a more mainstream result. Google is not a safe way to research an idea. Sometimes your bias is just going to be reinforced.

501(c)(3) are charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering national or international amateur sports competition, and preventing cruelty to children or animals.

IRS views charity as something sepperate from religion, the arts(literary), and education. I think they should of applied under literary instead of charity/science/education. They can say their code/tools are works of art for the public good.
