ESPRESSO APP

  People like their coffee strong and fast. But apparently, our coffee still isn’t fast enough.   That’s why Starbucks is working on an app that will let you pre-order your coffee online, so you can just swing by the store and grab it without waiting in line.

Ways to lose weight without trying.

BATTLE OF THE BULGE

If you’re looking to drop a few pounds, there’s no need to overhaul your life.

Here are some ways to lose weight without trying:

  • Drink water 15 minutes before every meal or snack.
       
  • Don’t eat three hours or less before going to bed.
      
  • Drink warm lemon water first thing in the morning.
      
  • Eat more garlic, onions, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli, which relieve inflammation, a common cause of weight gain.
      
  • Eat the whole egg, not just the white, to keep hunger at bay.
      
  • Limit slow and steady cardio to 20 minutes a day because anything more isn’t doing any good. (ChicagoNow)

Salaries for College Grads Haven’t Increased Since 2007

The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco conducted a survey and found that wages haven’t budged for those who just got their college degree since the recession of 2007.

It’s like time – and money – have stood still for seven years.

Government subsidizes college education so colleges can ignore the market value and inflate tuition to ridiculous levels.   

Stop morgaging ypur your house to send your kid to college. It’s not worth it!

Skills your grandfather had that you don’t

Technology has changed – and continues to change – the way we live our lives.

And, it’s happening spectacularly fast. Want proof?

Here are some skills your great-grandfather had just 90 years ago that you don’t.

  • Hunting, fishing, and foraging
        
  • Butchering
        
  • Bartering and haggling
        
  • Lighting a fire without matches
        
  • Writing with a fountain pen (Ancestry)

Study: Men like nice women - But not the other way around

According to a new study men like nice women – but women don’t like nice guys.

That’s right. Nice guys finish last.

Researchers found that men perceive nice female partners as “more feminine and more attractive.”

On the other hand, women didn’t necessarily perceive nice guys as less masculine – but they definitely were less attracted to nice guys. (Newsweek)

FACEBOOK is worth more than Coca-Cola

Despite the fact that it was founded in 2004, Facebook is now worth more than Coca-Cola – which was founded in 1892.

Facebook is also worth more than Disney, AT&T, and Bank of America.

If Facebook continues to roll like this, there’s a good chance it could become one of the most valuable companies in the world – and it’s being run by a 30-year-old.

Overachieve much?

And, here’s a fun fact that will either cause you to admire or hate Mark Zuckerberg more … He has more billions of dollars than his age. (Quartz)
