24 products people waste too much money on that you should stop buying immediately

Some items we're used to buying every day can actually be a huge waste of money. Store-bought greeting cards, physical books, cable TV, and premium gasoline are just a few examples. Bigger purchases, such as a boat or a time-share, often aren't worth the cost either. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories . Waste not, want not. We make so many purchases that we don't always realize what we are buying — and how we could be saving money. If we take a step back and think about a...

Why ‘Days of Our Lives’ axing its gay characters was the worst decision ever

Daytime soap fans are as loyal as The Lord of the Rings’ Samwise Gamgee. If they weren’t, soap operas wouldn’t be be passed along from generation to generation, sometimes remaining on air and in production for more than half a century. When was the last time a primetime drama series did that? In 2020, Days of Our Lives, the longest-running of the four surviving network soaps after General Hospital, is celebrating its 55th year of love in the afternoon. To commemorate the occasion, the powers th...

Bernie blows the casino doors off in Nevada

Sen. Bernie Sanders continued his methodical march to the Democratic nomination on Saturday with a blowout victory in Nevada over his chief rivals. As was the case after Iowa and New Hampshire, none of his competitors has a clear path to the nomination, even though Sanders only has a slim delegate lead with a tiny percentage of all delegates allocated. And crucially, Sanders broke through the polling ceiling that seemed to hang over his campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire, not only beating expect...

Once Again, My Miracle on Ice Story

18 years ago today (February 22, 2002), I wrote a blog post about being in the arena for the “Miracle on Ice”: the USA vs. USSR Olympic match on February 22, 1980.

I don't know if I ever said this myself, but as a teen and then young adult, I definitely tried never to ask for help, and seldom would allow myself to accept any.
