5 secrets of successful career changers - 05/18/10 09:30 AM
(Money Magazine) -- Tolstoy wrote that unhappy people are each unhappy in their own way. The same can be said of American workers today. In a bleak survey out earlier this year, the Conference Board reported that job satisfaction was at its lowest level in more than two decades. And the sources of employees' unhappiness ranged across a broad spectrum of misery, from job insecurity to meager pay.
Maybe you feel it too: the weariness that comes from doing more with less, the nagging feeling you could get a pink slip at any time, or the futility of being unemployed (1 comments)
Housing market diagnosis: Bi-polar - 05/17/10 08:55 AM
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Bi-polar is what comes to mind when diagnosing the post-homebuyer tax credit market. There are two separate forces pulling it in opposite directions, and experts aren't yet sure which path the market will take. On one hand, sales and prices are rising, indicating recovery. On the other hand, so are interest rates and repossessions, which most certainly do not. And then there are the millions of foreclosures that need to be sold but haven't yet been listed -- so-called shadow inventory -- that could derail a real recovery if they hit the market in floods.

From June 2009 By Tom Austin See our slideshow of America's Best Little Beach Towns. Nightlife-driven souls looking for Floridian action point their convertibles toward the likes of Fort Lauderdale and Key West . But a certain quieter, off-the-radar destination on the state's Gulf Coast holds a different kind of allure. The cult-fave town of Boca Grande is a throwback, an Old Florida time warp with such whimsically (1 comments)
High - End Repo - the rich should pay their bills too! - 05/12/10 01:15 PM
High-end repo men snag planes, yachts By Bob Ruff and Carol Costello, CNN - Count the rich among the victims of the Great Recession. Just ask Ken Cage, who repossesses very expensive toys that the rich can no longer afford. Business, HIS business, is booming. (CNN) "We sold 12 boats and airplanes in a day," he told us. His biggest repo? A nearly new $14 million Gulfstream jet taken from a real estate developer who fell behind in his payments. Cage often sells the repossessions himself, taking a small cut of each sale and giving the rest back to the banks. (1 comments)

Do you live in a fat city? - 05/07/10 08:32 AM
Look at a map of the United States and you'll be reminded of just how big Texas is. But what you can't see is the size of the state's citizenry: Five Lone Star cities are among the nation's fattest, with Corpulent Christi at the top. To arrive at our rankings, we calculated the percentage of people who are overweight, the percentage with type 2 diabetes, the percentage who haven't left the couch in a month (CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System); the money spent on junk food (Bureau of Labor Statisticsrestaurants); and finally, the number of people who ate fast food (4 comments)
