In all the chatter during the 2016 election campaign about the neglected and overlooked people in the country, precious little was said about the tens of millions of people over 50 who are in desperate or near-desperate financial straits. And maybe that makes sense, because these people have been neglected and overlooked for so long they are barely part of any conversation.

LOS ANGELES, CA – If you’re a Los Angeles native, resident or even visitor, you will probably cringe at the combination of “LA” and “rush hour.” Sitting in LA traffic is an excruciatingly painful task, and not just because of the hours you spend putting pressure on your lower back. If your brakes aren’t screeching because of the driver who just cut you off, then you’re probably yelling about the bumper-to-bumper deadlock. Truth be told, traffic is infuriating, exhausting and unproductive

Stock market cycles are something of an enigma — if investors generally know they exist, why don’t they get out at the peaks, and buy back in when the market is down? The better you understand the dynamics of market cycles, the better you can take advantage of them rather than being victimized by them. What makes up a stock market cycle?

To no one’s surprise but everyone’s dismay, 2016 is proving to be the hottest year on record according to the World Meteorological Organization. Delivered at the UN Climate Conference in Marrakech, this announcement highlights why countries and companies and cities must act together, focusing on the science and solutions rather than the pitch and yaw of global politics. Changes in climate affect us all but particularly vulnerable populations such as agricultural smallholders – who also form the roots of many of our supply chains.

Optimists are hoping for a Trump makeover. They cling to his brief victory remarks suggesting that he wants to be the “president of all the people.” In his 60 Minutes interview following the election Trump said that the protestors were out in the streets because “they do not know me.” They recall his statement some months ago that he had to say outlandish things in order to get greater media attention and reach more people than his Republican primary competitors.

By Adelyn Zhou Every entrepreneur can likely relate: You wake up each morning to hundreds of unread emails, stare at a to-do list that never seems to die, and schedule meetings on a fully-booked calendar two months out. With a workload like this, every minute is essential. That’s why I constantly invest time in finding ways to automate the more mundane aspects of work
Before I launched my 365-Day writing project , I came up with a 13-page (10 point font, 1.5-spaced) list of ideas. In the early days of the project, this numbered list guided me; I’d even used the strikethrough feature to cross out the topics I wrote about. As the year progressed and the calendar pages flipped faster than the leaves fell off the trees, I couldn’t keep up with the old stories on the list because new narratives were consistently presenting themselves for write-ups It was easier to write about something which happened today than to dig deep into my subconscious to recall a story from childhood or adolescence; something which helped define me, shape me, or gave me membership into a “life club.” Whatever crazy shit happens to us as humans, the “life club” concept is designed to help us feel like we’re not alone; we can always find someone who can relate, no matter how ludicrous our situation or experience may seem
