Debit cards are different
Would you give a thief direct access to your checking account?
No? Unfortunately, you may be doing just that by regularly using your debit card. Debit cards may look identical to credit cards, but there's one key difference. With credit cards, users who spot fraudulent charges on their bill can simply decline the charges and not pay the bill. On the other hand, debit cards draw money directly from your checking…Continue

Here are 10 tax breaks -- some for itemizers only, others that any filer can claim -- that often get overlooked but that could save you some tax dollars.
1. Additional charitable gifts
Everyone remembers to count the monetary gifts they make to their favorite charities. But expenses incurred while doing charitable work often aren't counted on tax returns.
You can't deduct the value of your time spent volunteering, but if you buy supplies for a group, the cost of that…Continue

The topic of obesity is popular in mainstream media. We are constantly warned of the dangers of being overweight, and while many groups have been targeted for 'health advice' in the past, it seems those labeled as obese bear the brunt. While having more weight than one is physically comfortable with can be unhealthy, the fact that our governments and media have chosen to take a parental role by constantly telling us what we should and shouldn't look like, should give us pause. To add insult…Continue

COCOA, Fla. — Newt Gingrich is promising to establish a permanent base on the moon by 2020 if he's elected president.
Gingrich, the former House speaker, told an overflow crowd gathered on Florida's space coast Wednesday that he wants to develop a robust commercial space industry in line with the airline boom of the 1930s. He also wants to expand exploration of Mars.
The pronouncements appeared to thrill the…Continue

The recent threats and harassment from Iranian patrol boats are a distraction at best. The use of these speed boats against a fully armed and fully capable US Warship is to deflect attention away from the work on their nuclear program.
These actions by Iran are comparable to the nuisance of a fly. By taunting and harassing US ships it shows how little of an effect they have on us. The Iranians have backed themselves into a corner, at some point in time they will need to get out of it.…

I ask myself why did they do that? Was it hatred or was it a lapse in judgement? What it was is disgraceful, disrespectful and all around inhumane. I have seen the beheading of Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg these are the actions of our enemies it’s not ours.
America is a compassionate country when we send soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines to foreign shores we land as a liberating force. I fully understand the strains and confusion and flood of emotions that accompanies combat. As the…Continue

Manage Your Z's
To ensure you get enough rest, figure out your ideal bedtime. Breus suggests counting backward 7.5 hours from your normal wake-up time to determine it. "Most people need at least seven hours, but the average American sleeps only 6.9," says Breus, who also recommends taking a relaxing lavender bath before bed. "There's clear data showing that lying in a hot bath two hours before bed improves your ability to sleep," he says.
Be All That You Can Be

The first thing any savvy do-it-yourselfer should take into account when considering a new project is that it will probably take twice as much time and three times as much money as you thought.
Or maybe it's three times as long and twice as much money.
Either way, there's a good reason why it's true: DIYers make mistakes.
Lots of them.
But you can learn a lot from mistakes. For example, whatever it was that my husband did to make…Continue
