Posted by Taylor A. Davis on Apr 6, 2016 4:54:50 PM

Have you ever wanted to know what your customers think of you? Or how they value your product? It helps to know what exactly makes your customers appreciate your business, and the best way of knowing is to ask.

As a student, resident, or even an employee, you can’t help but feel the slightest bit of fear crawl into your lap as you watch the news, listen to the radio, or glance at your phone. After terrorist related events this past couple of months, it feels like more and more threats loom over us, and it gives way to fear.

Trumping The Competition

Posted by Taylor A. Davis on Mar 16, 2016 11:44:49 AM

Let’s get one thing straight. IRIO is not politically biased toward any candidate, and our beliefs and ideologies vary on the whole. But one figure in the political world never ceases to amaze us... Donald Trump. He is a candidate who has drawn in mounds and mounds of media attention with his antics, assertions, and accusations. Either people are devoutly for him or passionately against him, leaving very few in the middle.

But what is it that’s boosted this politically inexperienced candidate in the race?
