"The United States Secret Service is the oldest federal law enforcement agency in the nation and is recognized as one of the most elite in the world. It is a self-contained organization, not part of the FBI or CIA. At the mention of the Secret Service, most people conjure up images of big men in dark suits and sunglasses, surrounding the leader of the free world wherever he goes. Indeed, the agency has a long history of protecting not only presidents, but vice presidents, their families, foreign dignitaries, and even presidential hopefuls. However, this is only part of the Secret Service story. The agency was initially created as a division of the Treasury Department. In the wake of the Civil War, there was a large quantity of phony money in circulation. In fact, it is estimated that more than one-third of American currency was counterfeit at the time. President Abraham Lincoln established the Secret Service to combat the problem and to ensure the integrity of the nation’s financial infrastructure. Ironically, Lincoln signed the legislation creating the agency on April 14, 1865 – the very day John Wilkes Booth assassinated him. Yet, it would be another 36 years before the Secret Service assumed the responsibility of protecting American presidents. Since its inception, the agency has been investigating and guarding against financial crimes, such as counterfeiting, identity theft, computer fraud, money laundering, and all types of financial fraud. It also took on anyone 'perpetrating mass frauds against the government,' which included the likes of the Ku Klux Klan, among others. In 2003, the Secret Service was transferred to the Department of Homeland Security. Today, it fights crime on a global scale, investigating a growing list of technology-based crimes, such as cyber-attacks against the nation’s financial and telecommunications infrastructure, and technological attacks that hack into government systems."--Pages 1-2

"Choosing a career is not a game. Except when it is. Casino gaming has exploded in the United States over the past few decades, creating thousands of new jobs for dedicated careerists who would like to take a sure bet on an exciting career. Nearly 200,000 people are employed in gaming today, and you could become one of them. Historically a niche business legal in only a few places, the gaming industry now has outposts across the country ranging from bars in South Dakota with a few slot machines to the over-the-top mega-casinos of the Las Vegas Strip. The gaming industry has grown rapidly, fed by demand for safe and legal gaming, and by the state and local governments that regulate casinos and depend upon the tax revenue they generate. Jobs specifically devoted to gaming include dealers and gaming supervisors who run the games and gaming floors where patrons partake of games. The business has also created demand for legions of careerists in associated hospitality fields, especially restaurants, hotels, security and live music and theater. Although this report will touch upon opportunities in these related industries, it will concentrate on those careers specifically related to gaming. business has also created demand for legions of careerists in associated hospitality fields, especially restaurants, hotels, security and live music and theater."--Pages 1-2
