Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

Soul Serenade: Danny White, “Can’t Do Nothing Without You”

For every musician who becomes a household name, there are hundreds, probably even thousands who toil in clubs for many years, getting a whiff of success every now and then but never quite climbing that ladder to the top rung. At some point they must realize that they are never going to get there and yet, they toil on, maybe because they love music or maybe because it’s the only thing they know. Danny White was born and raised in New Orleans. After serving in the Army in California he returned t...

Here's How To Earn Back Money You Lost Thanks To The Wage Gap

17% is no small quantity. In a pizza pie, it’s a slice and a half. In a week, it's more than a day. In a bottle of wine, it's a tall glass. And in parts of the workforce, for equivalent positions. That percentage varies across location and occupation, but no matter the framing, women are still getting the short end of the stick. It’s been 56 years since the Equal Pay Act was passed — and it still often feels like we're closer to building flying cars than we are to ironing out income inequalit...

The FDA Just Confirmed The Presence Of Asbestos In Makeup From Claire's

In 2017, after growing concerned about the safety of her daughter's glitter makeup from Claire's, a Rhode Island-based mother and lawyer sent samples of the product to an independent lab for testing. Yesterday, more than a year later, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration released a statement confirming those suspicions: Product samples from the brand — as well as fellow teen retailer Justice — have tested positive for asbestos, the dangerous fiber that’s linked to lung cancer, mesothelioma, and ...

On paper I have it all: I’m married to a supportive man, I'm mom to two children, and in the past six years I’ve managed to double my income. And while I’ve spent the past 15 years working as a financial expert, the top question I’ve been receiving lately from the many driven young women in my community has nothing to do with money.
