The total cost of raising a child today -


From Money.cnn.com

 

If you're thinking of starting a family, you might be in for some sticker shock: Raising a child could cost you nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

A middle-income, married couple with two children is estimated to spend $233,610 to raise a child born in 2015, according to a report released by the Department of Agriculture Monday. And that number only covers costs from birth through age 17 -- so it doesn't include college expenses.

 

Families can expect to spend between $12,350 and nearly $14,000 a year, on average, to raise a child.

Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood have wrapped the Oceania leg of Keith’s super successful Ripcord World Tour. While we’ve seen photos of the Aussie celebrating his downtime with wife Nicole Kidman and daughters Sunday and Faith, we’re still enjoying video from the duo’s tour.

Ever embarrassed yourself at your office Christmas or Holiday party?


From NYPost.com

 

When Don returned to work on Monday morning, he found himself the talk of the water-cooler crowd.

Don, who asked that his last name not be used for professional reasons, worked part-time in sales for a midsize consulting firm in Midtown and was vying for a full-time gig when he attended the company’s holiday bash two years ago.

The party was held at a small Midtown hotel’s banquet room for three hours; open bar was included, as well as hors d’oeuvres, but the real debauchery began at the afterparty in the West Village. Amid Fireball shots and dancing on tables, Don proceeded to “dirty dance” with not one but two of the bar’s waitresses — with Don sandwiched between them.

Orlando is the 4th most sinful city in the country?!


From WalletHub.com

 

Las Vegas isn’t the only sinful place in America. In other cities, bad things happen and stay there, too. From beer-loving Milwaukee to hedonistic New Orleans, the U.S. is filled with people behaving badly. No place is innocent. We all have demons. But luckily for the saints among us, all American vices are not created — or distributed — equally.

So in order to identify the darkest corners of America, WalletHub’s data crunchers compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities across 27 key indicators of evil deeds. Our data set ranges from “violent crimes per capita” to “excessive drinking” to “potential cheaters.” Scroll down to see the baddest of the bad cities, expert recommendations for overcoming humanity’s devilish nature and a full description of how we ranked the cities.

What do you think about this couple's tiping policy?


From DailyDot.com

 

Tipping is a much-debated issue in America. Some restaurants have started to eliminate tipping, instead raising menu prices so they can pay their staff a livable hourly wage. But most states have a different “tipped” minimum wage that applies to servers, meaning they earn most of their money from tips.

Which is what makes this couple such dicks. Get ready to clutch every pearl in the house.

Twitter user @pimpcey_ posted a screenshot of a Facebook post, in which one member of a terrible couple outlines their tipping policy (we couldn’t find it on Facebook so it might be fake, but let’s complain about it anyway, shall we?). Their plan involves placing five dollar bills on the table at the beginning of the meal and taking away a dollar every time they think the server messes up. “You will receive the best service of your life,” they cry, seemingly unaware that their power trip is breaking every rule of etiquette and common decency.

Sexiest and least sexiest jobs for men and women


From AskMen.com

 

With such little on many dating apps these days, what you put on your profile becomes extra important. The text in your bio (or lack thereof), your age and especially your photos will make you stand out for better, or worse. But there's another thing in there that might be impacting your matches — what you do for work.

Clover, a dating app that's sort of a mix between Tinder and OK-Cupid allows its users to put their profession in their profile and noticed some intriguing results. When it looked at 1.5 million profiles, Clover found that going to nearly a decade of school can really help your chances at getting a date. Lawyers, psychiatrists and doctors, the latter of which get 2.5 times more likes than average, are the sexiest professions for men.

Dunkin Donuts and Pop-Tarts are teaming up to create GOODNESS


From AOL.com

 

Dunkin' Donuts-flavored Pop-Tarts are hitting grocery store shelves this month.

On Thursday, Pop-Tarts' parent company Kellogg announced that the company would be releasing limited edition Frosted Chocolate Mocha and Frosted Vanilla Latte Pop-Tarts flavors. Both flavors will begin shipping nationwide to retailers and grocery stores in the coming month.

The Chocolate Mocha Pop-Tarts feature chocolate-espresso filling and are topped with whipped cream-flavored frosting. We tried the snack and thought it tasted like an elevated s'mores Pop-Tart with a pleasant coffee aftertaste.

The Vanilla Latte flavor has a sweet vanilla filling and is topped with coffee frosting. This Pop-Tart had a much less prominent coffee taste with an overly-sweet flavor that was difficult to place. One tester said it reminded him of a "cheap stale cookie blended with an overly sweet coffee drink." Had the box not been labeled "Vanilla Latte," we wouldn't have been able to guess the flavor.

In a discovery that will give nutritionists the shivers, a Japanese scientist has discovered that consuming ice cream for breakfast improves a person's alertness and mental performance.

Yoshihiko Koga, a professor at Tokyo's Kyorin University, has carried out a series of clinical trials in which test subjects were required to eat ice cream immediately after waking up. 

They were then put through a series of mental exercises on a computer.

Compared to a group that had not eaten ice cream, Prof Koga's subjects exhibited faster reaction times and better information-processing capabilities, the Excite News web site reported.

How to make Holiday travel LESS stressful!


From NYTimes.com

 

Traveling during the holiday season can be a less than enjoyable experience, said David Solomito, the vice president of marketing at the travel search engine Kayak. “There are more cars on the road, longer lines at airports and an increased chance of flight delays and cancellations because of wintertime weather,” he said.

The rush may be inevitable, but feeling fraught isn’t. Mr. Solomito shared his top tips on how to minimize the stress of holiday travel.

TRAVEL ON THE HOLIDAY With fewer crowds, less traffic on the road and lower airfares, traveling on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve is usually less stressful than traveling the day or a few days before the holidays. According to Kayak’s data, travelers saved 11 percent on flights in 2015 when they flew on Thanksgiving Day versus the day before and 14 percent when they flew on Christmas Day, compared with Dec. 23. “You’ll save money and won’t see nearly as many people because traveling on holidays isn’t popular,” Mr. Solomito said.

Among the photos of presents, parties, and booze-reddened relatives, another common theme seems to have emerged on Facebook in the past few weeks. A sizable chunk of my female friends, at least, have recently posted images of themselves grinning while holding up a jazz hand with a ring on it.

“Doesn’t it feel like everyone is getting engaged right now?” a friend from home asked the other night.

What are our favorite things about Thanksgiving?


From PRNewswire.com

 

QUINCY, Mass., Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent national survey commissioned by grocery store retailer Stop & Shop reveals Turkey Day favorites – everything from dishes served to dream guests around the table. As the survey shows, while Thanksgiving is a holiday that revolves around family with close to half (49%) of Americans said spending time with family & friends was what they loved most, nearly a quarter (24%) said eating is their favorite part of the holiday.

How to eat as much as possible tomorrow


From PopSci.com

 

Every Thanksgiving, Americans gather to celebrate family, give thanks, and stuff our faces until we all feel sick. Tragically, filling up too fast on a good holiday meal means you won’t manage to grab seconds or thirds of all the best dishes on the table. You need to maximize your food intake—here’s how.

Note: This advice is not conducive to a healthy everyday diet. But then again, neither is Thanksgiving.

1. Prepare

Getting ready for the big meal is a matter of balance. To consume as much as possible, you’ll need to start on an empty stomach. But if you’re starving, you’ll eat too quickly instead of pacing yourself.

“Fasting is typically not a good idea,” says registered dietician Leslie Bonci. Instead, she recommends that you follow your regular meal schedule, but stop eating four to six hours before the main event.

Exercising earlier in the day is also a good idea. Physical exertion can stimulate the appetite. And a brisk walk or run helps move food through your digestive system and empty out your stomach in preparation.

Finally, it’s easier to eat a lot if you’re relaxed. So immediately before the meal, take some deep breaths, think calm thoughts, and avoid confronting your ornery uncle (you can argue with him after you’ve defeated your turkey).

Top turkey myths!


From UPI.com

 

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 23, 2016 -- A nutrition expert is talking turkey to dispel some common myths about the focus of most Thanksgiving meals.

The most-repeated myth is that eating turkey makes you sleepy. While it does contain tryptophan -- an amino acid supplement that promotes sleep when taken alone on an empty stomach -- turkey also contains many other amino acids that are likely to limit the effects of tryptophan, said Judith Rodriguez. She is chair of the department of nutrition and dietetics at the University of North Florida.

After a large meal, your sleepiness is more likely due to blood being diverted from throughout the body, including the muscles and brain, to the stomach for digestion, Rodriguez explained in a university news release.

3 guys are suing Chipotle due to too many calories in their burritos. There are jokes here...


From USAToday.com:

 

Chipotle's chorizo burrito as diet food? If you read the description of the menu item, available since October, you certainly wouldn't think so: It packs chicken, pork sausage, rice, beans, and cheese into a tortilla. Except that same sign also said "300 calories." And so three customers who bought the burrito in Los Angeles this month are suing. As City News Service reports, one of the men behind the proposed class-action lawsuit brought in Los Angeles Superior Court ordered the menu item on Nov. 3 thinking it was a 300-calorie dish. David Desmond "felt excessively full and realized that the burrito couldn’t have been just 300 calories" after eating it, per the complaint.

Guide to when your favorite stores are open on Thanksgiving and Black Friday


From CNBC.com

 

Some retailers are staunchly against it. Others use it as a tactic to steal sales from the competition.

No matter where they fall in the debate over opening their stores on Thanksgiving Day, one thing's for sure: The divide is making it harder for the 137.4 million Americans who plan to shop that weekend to map out their plans.

With some retailers changing their tune this year — and others sticking to their guns — CNBC has compiled a list of several of the major chains' Thanksgiving and Black Friday hours.

Hours can vary depending on the market, or if the store is located in a mall that's closed that day. As for Wal-Mart, nearly all of its stores are open 24 hours a day, so its starting time pertains to Black Friday doorbusters.

It's best to check with your local store for their exact hours.

Georgia man STILL doesn't know who won the election... and it's great!


From 11Alive.com

 

Despite all the tension around the presidential election, one south Georgia man is not the least bit stressed about the outcome. That's because, he says, he doesn't know who won the election.

Joe Chandler said he’s locked himself into a sort of special "cone of silence."

“Well, I started out just needing a breather from it,” he said. “I wanted to give myself 24 hours.”

Chandler could be the only person in the world who does not know the results of the American presidential election.

“The only cognizant person who's not in a coma or down in a cave - and even then they might be able to get a signal on their cell phone,” said Chandler.

Chandler began election night the same way everyone else did -- glued to a TV, but after a few hours:

“I just didn't have it in me,” Chandler said. “I’m like, 'I’ve got to step off this insane merry go round; I just don't want to know. I’ll look in the morning.”

The next morning turned into the next afternoon then the next night. Before Joe knew it, he was ringing in hour 56 of post-election blissful ignorance.

That's not to say he doesn't go out. He just takes along a few extra tools, including headphones and a sign.

There's a child screaming. Did you remember to get ice? Someone's at the door. It's Aunt Patty. But the pie needs to come out of the oven. Ask cousin Jake to get it. Hopefully he wears oven mitts. The kid is screaming again, somewhere in the backyard. Watch out for that football. What else do you need to do? Breathe. You need to breathe. It's Thanksgiving. Isn't this supposed to be enjoyable?

Yeah, it is. It's easy to get caught up in the stress of turkey day, but this year, you don't have to. You're going into this meal with sound mind and body. You'll be cool, calm, and collected with a bit of advice from BA staffers and Thanksgiving experts.

If a consistent internet connection is more important to you than having an active sex life, you wouldn't be alone. According to a new study, 4 in 10 of us identify Wi-Fi as our most important daily need, above sex, chocolate and alcohol.

The study, carried about by Wi-Fi connectivity provider iPass, surveyed 1,700 working professionals across Europe and the US about their connectivity habits. It involved asking participants to rank the importance of Wi-Fi against other "human luxuries and necessities" on a scale of 1-4, with one being most important and 4 bring least important. Wi-Fi was labelled most important by 40.2% of respondents, followed by sex (36.6%), chocolate (14.3%) and alcohol, which was ranked as the number one daily essential by 8.9% of respondents.

If your candidate loses tomorrow - here are the best countries to move to


From Thrillist.com

 

America's classic shut-down line is "Love it or leave it," which, strictly speaking, is a false choice. You can love your country and leave it. Most Americans who've lived in other countries would tell you it's hard to appreciate the States, really, until you're away long enough to miss 'em.

Where to go, though, is an open question. Americans are much better at welcoming immigrants than emigrating themselves, but the State Department guesses that somewhere between 3 million and 6 million American civilians live abroad -- not a small figure! That's like a Missouri's worth of us, out there roaming the world.

More Big Macs to love are coming soon!


From BusinessInsider.com
 

McDonald's is making some big changes to its core menu item: the Big Mac.

The chain is launching a "Mac Jr" and a "Grand Mac" nationwide for a limited time in early 2017, the company said Thursday.

The Mac Jr. is a miniature version of the Big Mac with a single 1/6-pound burger patty.

The Grand Mac features 66% more beef than the regular Big Mac, an extra slice of cheese, and a larger bun.

The regular Big Mac has two 1/10-pound burger patties, three pieces of bread, and two slices of cheese, special sauce, lettuce, pickles, and onions. 

"The Big Mac is a legend and a great-tasting burger with hints of pickle relish, mustard, garlic and onions,"  McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz said in a statement. "We listened to our customers who told us they wanted different ways to enjoy the one-of-a-kind Big Mac taste. The classic combination of ingredients remains timeless and customers around the world continue to enjoy its signature taste."

Chubby dads live longer and are more attractive to the ladies!


From Telegraph.co.uk:

 

Pudgy older fathers live longer, are more attractive to the opposite sex and are better at passing on their genes than their leaner counterparts, scientists have claimed.

Becoming fatter after fatherhood due to decreasing testosterone levels may not fit the “macho” ideal, but it actually prolongs lives and strengthens immune systems, according to Richard Bribiescas, professor of anthropology and deputy provost at Yale University.

There is evidence that these men are less likely to suffer from heart attacks and prostate cancer, while a study in 2008 found that men with high metabolisms were around 50 per cent more likely to die in a given year than those whose bodies burned up less energy at rest.

If you think that Halloween isn't for laughing, and rather only for screaming, then you've got it all wrong. Yes, horror movies and thrillers and suspense are an awesome way to embrace the vibe of the season, and I have scared myself silly and screamed myself hoarse in many a terrifying haunted house in my day. But trust me, you can also get in the spooky spirit by laughing your butt off, too. There really are so many different types of funny Halloween movies. You've got the sweet and kid-friendly, the brutal satire, the campy and outrageous, the subtle and dry, and the flat-out hilarious.

Halloween itself, with all the different types of paranormal creatures and otherworldly adventures, is kind of perfect for comedy. After all, anything can happen during this season. So I have put together a compendium of many of these fantastic, funny (and yes, sometimes a little freaky) Halloween movies for you to watch if you want a break from the nonstop gore of a slasher movie marathon. Instead, consider a marathon of the 17 funniest Halloween movies, listed below.

Pressing the door close button in an elevator does NOTHING?!


From NYTimes.com

 

Pressing the door-close button on an elevator might make you feel better, but it will do nothing to hasten your trip.

Karen W. Penafiel, executive director of National Elevator Industry Inc., a trade group, said the close-door feature faded into obsolescence a few years after the enactment of the Americans With Disabilities Act in 1990.

The legislation required that elevator doors remain open long enough for anyone who uses crutches, a cane or wheelchair to get on board, Ms. Penafiel said in an interview on Tuesday. “The riding public would not be able to make those doors close any faster,” she said.

From MiamiHerald.com

 

On his way home from a strip club, a Florida man fell out of his truck, ran himself over and then ran off, troopers say.

The man was down, but his truck kept going, rolling into a nearby house and injuring a 58-year-old woman inside, the Sentinel reported.

Are you single and miserable? Use the new app Date Miserable People!


From AZFamily.com

 

PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK) -

You've probably heard the expression "misery loves company." And if that holds true, a new dating app should be very successful!

The app 'Date Miserable People' launched right here in Phoenix this week.

It's the brainchild of Shaun Price. He says he created the site so people could engage in online dating while keeping it real and honest without feeling intimidated.

"D.M.P is an online platform that allows people to engage in online dating honestly and within the realities of their daily lives," Price said.

Price said he personally has been through the trials and tribulations of all the online dating websites and has experienced the "intimidation of feeling inadequate for the majority of people that have profiles posted on these sites."

The idea of D.M.P., according to Price, is to give users with "not-so-perfect lives" a place to be comfortable sharing their lifestyles, interests and concerns without feeling inadequate.

Woman sues KFC for false advertising


From NYPost.com:

 

A Hudson Valley woman is finger lickin’ mad at Kentucky Fried Chicken, claiming its understuffed buckets are for the birds.

Anna Wurtzburger, of Hopewell Junction, says she bought a $20 bucket of chicken from KFC over the summer and was disappointed to find it looked much different than what’s in the chain’s ads.

“I came home and said, ‘Where’s the chicken?’ I thought I was going to have a couple of meals,” she told The Post.

–– ADVERTISEMENT ––

“They say it feeds the whole family … They’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken,” the 64-year-old widow griped. “You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces!”

Wurtzburger rang up the fast-food giant’s Georgia headquarters to complain, and was told the chicken was portrayed prominently on the commercial “so that the public could see the chicken.”

“If you want the public to look at your chicken, put it in a dish,” she fumed. “It’s a lot of BS. … I expect to get what you’re telling me.”

From CareerBuilder.com

 

CHICAGO and ATLANTA, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While calling in sick, when you are feeling just fine, is not a new phenomenon in the office, slightly less workers say they have done it over the last 12 months, according to a new CareerBuilder survey. Slightly more than a third of workers (35 percent) said they have called in to work sick when they were feeling just fine, down from 38 percent last year.

More than 3,100 full-time workers and more than 2,500 full-time hiring and human resource managers (of which 2,379 are in the private sector) across industries participated in the nationwide survey, conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder from August 11 to September 7, 2016.

When asked why they called in sick when they were feeling well, 28 percent said they just didn't feel like going in to work and 27 percent took the day off to attend a doctor's appointment. Another 24 percent said they needed to just relax and 18 percent needed to catch up on sleep. Meanwhile, 11 percent took the day off to run personal errands.

Ladies - do you get road rage more than guys? Study says...


From DailyMail.co.uk
 

A new study suggests that road rage affects women more than men, and that females are far more likely to lose their cool behind the wheel. 

The researchers suggest that women have an instinctive 'early warning system' which dates back to our early female ancestors who had a sense of danger for threats. 

But this finding contradicts previous studies, which shows that men are predominantly affected by road rage.

Crawling is the hot new exercise?!


From Uproxx.com

 

Here’s the deal: There’s no denying that crawling looks easy — and as anyone who’s ever been too drunk to walk can tell you, it can also feel easier than having to lug yourself up and amble — but it’s actually much more involved than you’d think. And there’s a good reason that Chiropractor Justin Klein, who’s trying to turn crawling into a movement, is referring to it as the “new plank.”

Ever want to know which side of the Oreo the cream will end up on?


From Gizmodo.com

 

The game of twisting an Oreo and seeing which wafer the cream is on has been used to make decisions, random predictions and resolve disagreements for decades. Now, a group of graduate students from Princeton claim to have cracked the code for which cookie the cream will end up on so that you can be a dirty cheater.

 

John Cannarella, Dan Quinn and Joshua Spechler were studying together at Princeton’s mechanical and aerospace engineering program in 2014, when they decided to solve the mystery of the Oreo twist. Quinn, who is currently a postdoc at Stanford University, tells Quartz, “The Oreo was our generation’s wishbone.”

Fastest ways to clear your nose are...


From MensHealth.com

 

When you’re so congested your face feels like a 16-pound bowling ball, your first line of defense is obvious: a decongestant. 

Just make sure you choose the right one. Some “decongestants” actually dry your mucus instead of drain it out, says Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an associate professor at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
 
This makes your secretions thicker and tougher to eliminate. And all that dried-up crud that sticks around can grow bacteria and cause a nasty sinus infection.

 

“You go from a pond to a cesspool,” says Dr. DeStefano.

Almost half of all men SHAVE THEIR LEGS? WTH?


From Independent.co.uk:

 

Almost half of men admit to trimming or shaving their leg hair - an eyebrow raising admission, even for a generation of spornosexual manscapers.  Male hair trimming that rarely concerns body hair south of the border, unless you’re a professional swimmer or cyclist - but these days average Joes everywhere are taking razors to their hairy pins. 

Surveying their Facebook followers, Men’s Health found that while the majority of men are not completely shaving their legs, a surprising 15 per cent are, while a further 33 per cent admitted: “I don’t shave clean, but I do use a trimmer to cut it down”. That’s nearly half of the men polled that are tackling their leg hair in some way or form - but why?

No wifi? Just call 911! SMH


From HeraldOnline.com:

 

A woman called 911 five times because the person with whom she was staying wouldn’t allow her to use the Wi-Fi, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies on Saturday responded to a home on Hickory Grove Road in Sharon after the suspect called 911 for a fifth time “saying that she was in fear for her life because she didn’t have access to Wi-Fi,” according to a sheriff’s report.

The 49-year-old woman, who is from Houston, told deputies she had been in South Carolina for three weeks and wasn’t allowed to use the home’s Wi-Fi or phone because she ran up the bill calling people in Texas and Indiana.

The owner of the home where the suspect was staying told deputies he allowed her to stay there if she cleaned the home. After three weeks, the homeowner said, the suspect had run up a large phone bill with the long-distance calls.R
