The Pentagon needs to reverse course

A lot has been written about the Pentagon's plan to move its computing operations onto the cloud. The contract to do the work it is said to be worth $1 billion in just the first year to the firm that wins the bid, and billions more after that. The contract is sole source - meaning one company would be responsible for designing and maintaining the contracted services for at least a decade and probably in virtual perpetuity - so it's no surprise rumors about the bid being rigged are flying around.

Summer crops and winter wheat

The drought hasn't lessened with the area in extreme drought and the outlook isn't promising. As if that wasn't enough to worry about, the area has experienced well below freezing air temperatures (the low 20s) for an extended period of time twice in the last week which while not rare is certainly uncommon for the first week of April. So what does this mean for the 2018 wheat crop? As is almost always the case, there isn't a cut and dry answer.

Ten things you can do with your tax refund

According to the IRS, the average tax refund in the United States in 2017 was $2,763. But remember, a tax refund is not a gift or a windfall – it's your own hard-earned money that Uncle Sam has used interest-free for a year. Before you go on a spending spree, think about ways you can use your tax refund to improve your financial situation.
