Millennials are more likely to have a side hustle than older workers...

Feeling Down? Fight Back With These Top Tips!

Most people go through periods of feeling down. Some for longer than others. But fighting back is one of the most important things you can do.

For some, middle age is a particularly hard period to get through. Others get it in their twenties or thirties. There’s no right or wrong. Everyone is d...

How hobbyists are saving endangered killifish from extinction

Killifish biology has long intrigued fish enthusiasts and scientists. But human encroachment, habitat loss and climate change are dwindling killifish populations in the wild. Thankfully, collection efforts by conservationists are saving these creatures. The conservationists distribute specimens and their eggs to academic and hobbyist circles for captive breeding and stewardship. To date, at least 1,270 killifish species are known worldwide, according to Portland State University’s Podrabsky Lab...

How to Create an Impressive Collection

From a period of history when humans had to struggle for everything to a contemporary society of abundance and apparent plenty, it’s no wonder that there’s still a part of our brains that compels us to collect and stockpile objects of curiosity and personal value. It’s almost hardwired into us that the more we have, the happier life will be.

Where the billionaires are concentrated

While the census doesn't name individual billionaires or their ventures, these trends toward tech-centric business creation certainly include the founders of high profile Bay Area companies such as Facebook and Google. It's also unsurprising, then, that given the concentration of tech billionaires real estate prices in cities such as San Francisco continue to rise.

Revenues and customers can still be a hobby

For a few years, I have noted in update presentations and elsewhere that some gig drivers who only drive occasionally, do it for cash generation or to pass the time, or have other income sources, might really have an activity not engaged in for profit ("hobby"), rather than a business. The tax consequences of the hobby designation are tremendous in that no deductions are allowed starting in 2018. No self-employment tax is owed either, but loss of tax deductions for a gig driver is costly.  Follo...

Irony can be Fun!

B'SD 23 Elul, 5778 One of the ways that I ask people to take their disrupted lives back is to pursue rewarding activities. Do things that leave you smiling a long time later, no matter the medical problem. I do that by indulging in a sewing and craft hobby I'd had years ago. I recently picked up my tools and started it anew. I'm enjoying the irony of making lovely hand-sewn evening bags with a friend. And to laugh with even more joy from the "I'm doing this despite my visi...

I love art supplies. I have a tendency to collect them in droves. Keyword here: collect. Although I try to use them whenever I can, I've turned into a digital world kinda gal. ^^; Like most kids, it started off with a set of Crayola Colored Pencils we needed to buy for school. (You know, those super hard, waxy, inexpensive ones? The ones you had to scrub and scrub to get color out and would more likely dent the paper you're coloring than make a mark?) I had my small collection of wooden pen...

Magnet fishing is the coolest hobby you probably didn't know existed

As a kid, I grew up near minutes from the beach and many times saw grownups meticulously sifting through the sand with a metal detector. I imagined they were pulling up diamond rings and pirate's gold. My dad assured me they weren't, though I suspect he just didn't want to buy me a metal detector.   In any case, these magnet fishing hobbyists have them beat.  By dropping a very strong magnet underwater, history buffs "WW2 Wendal" fish their local lochs and rivers for valuable metal objects....

Lawsuit: sicko Sheriff ordered 900 teens groped in illegal mass-frisking at school

A is underway in Worth County, Georgia, where Sheriff Jeff Hobby is defending a mass-frisking of 900 high school students, performed in public without warrant or even the pretense of probable cause, during which cops reportedly manipulated student's breasts, inserted fingers inside bras, exposed bare breasts and reached into underwear and cupped and groped kids' genitals.
