9 Women On Why They Decided To Pay For Their Engagement Rings

Buying an engagement ring is often the first big financial decision a couple makes together. These days, it's pretty typical for couples to shop for rings well ahead of the proposal with the proposee choosing the ring and knowing the cost. But who should pay for that ring? Tradition stands that it's the man who pays and does the proposing (of course, this goes out the window in same-sex relationships), but as more women out-earn their partners, it seems only natural that they would chip in (or ...

Zoroastrian ‘fire temple’ opens in Houston

On a typical-looking stretch of southwest Houston — down the street from Kwik Kar Lube and Storage Choice, across from a privacy fence hiding cookie-cutter McMansions — a Zoroastrian fire temple opened last week: a brand-new, sparkling-white place where priests from one of the world’s oldest religions tend a holy flame. By Lisa Gray, www.houstonchronicle.com Priest Zerkxis Bhandara tends a fire at Houston’s new Atash Kadeh. Zerkxis Bhandara, a Zoroastrian priest, stands at the san...

Amy Zhang Became A Hit Author At 15. You Could, Too.

Liz Emerson, the main character of the novel Falling Into Place, thinks like a teenager. She sounds like one, too. That’s probably because she was written by one.Over the course of a single month in the autumn of 2010, 15-year-old Amy Zhang wrote Liz Emerson to life. Each morning before school, Zhang rose at 4 a.m. and worked on her novel until 6. “Sometimes, I’d take a 30-minute nap,” she told Refinery29, laughing. Zhang raced through the school day so she could come home and write again.Looki...

New name beat: Fifth City

Maybe it’s because I was reading The Fifth Risk, Michael Lewis’s 2018 book about how the current administration in Washington is “government led by the uninterested,” as NPR put it, but my first response to the announcement last week of the Fifth City makeup brand was: What are the first, second, third, and fourth cities? It could have been worse: They could have called it Fifth Place.   Fifth City is a private-label brand sold through SaksOffFifth—the discount division, launched in 1990,...

Turning Failure Into Prosperity: How 4 Women Used Their Setbacks To Achieve Success

Ask any successful woman and she’ll tell you, on the road to financial freedom and confidence, you’re likely to hit a few bumps along the way. Setbacks come in many forms — the layoff that hits you when you least expect it, the business launch that flops, or the debt that feels completely overwhelming. While for some, these obstacles are perceived as failures, for many women, they can actually serve as the wake-up call that pushes her to reassess, take bigger risks, and achieve even greater suc...

Zinc solved a stinky feet problem

He Who Sees True Opportunities Shall Always Prosper

--> People lose their jobs. Often people are released, even from the best jobs they might have ever had. People may find themselves in a position where they cannot find a job that is as good as the one they lost. What is important, however, is what people do when they are in this position. I cannot tell you the number of people I have seen completely blow it when it came to reestablishing their careers, after losing their prior jobs. I do not want you to be one of these people.

From Planned Parenthood to Patreon to ASPCA, millennial women are giving — regardless of how much money they make — to the causes and charities they care about.Philanthropy isn't a word reserved just for multimillionaires.

Giving Circles Are Helping Young Women Make 'Change, Not Charity' In Their Communities

“Your donation, however small, matters!” You've probably heard something like that from political fundraisers, sad animal commercials, friends on Facebook. So you click on those "Donate $5" buttons, submit your credit card to GoFundMe campaigns, then just sit back, hoping others are doing the same. But there are some people — even young non billionaires — who are getting the satisfaction of seeing their money make a real difference in their communities and in the world through another model of ...

5 reasons why Danish workers are the happiest in the world

You will often see Denmark listed as one of the “happiest countries on the planet.” Interestingly Danes are not only happy at home, they’re also happy at work and according to most studies of worker satisfaction among nations, the happiest employees in the world are in Denmark. Here’s just one data point: Gallup found that 18% of American workers are actively disengaged, meaning they are “emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive.” The same number for Danish...

Trucks break. People get injured. Employees do not show up to work. It rains. The police give you a hard time for the condition of your equipment. People do not pay you for the work you have done for them. Suppliers go out of business. Customers get incredibly angry with you. Accidents occur, and mater...

Everything You Need To Know About Gayle King's Shocking & Emotional Interview With R. Kelly

While R. Kelly has always denied, typically via attorneys and reps, the allegations made against him (ranging from sex with underage girls to claims that he is holding women in his house and abusing them), he had yet to publicly tell his side of the story. On CBS This Morning on Wednesday, Gayle King gave him that chance, and what resulted was a long-winded interview filled with tears, outbursts, and, most of all, denials of the accusations that have been made against the 52-year-old.While thes...
