Saving on a paycheck to paycheck lifestyle

first_imgby: Lance CothernLiving paycheck to paycheck is flat out stressful.Stretching your last $20 bill until your next paycheck hits your bank account on Friday is an enormous challenge when you need gas, groceries and your kid needs money for a field trip on Thursday.While it may seem impossible, you can save money while living paycheck to paycheck.In fact, saving money is exactly what will get you out of the paycheck to paycheck lifestyle. So, what can you do to save?Here are four ways how to save money while living paycheck to paycheck and a guide covering what to do with the money you save.Pay Yourself FirstThe easiest way to save money when you’re living paycheck to paycheck is to pay yourself first.You can accomplish this a few different ways, but I find it is most effective to have your workplace split your direct deposit into two parts.The first and largest part will go to your checking account, as always, while a second smaller portion will go directly into a savings account you vow to never touch. I personally like using an online savings account, like Capital One 360 (read our review here), so it makes it harder to get the money for splurges. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Neymar banned for three Champions League matches over ref rant

first_imgPSG made Neymar the world’s most expensive player in 2017 by signing him from Barcelona for 222 million euros as they stepped up their bid to win a maiden Champions League title, but they have now lost in the last 16 in three straight seasons.Injury has already ruled Neymar out of several key European matches for PSG, the forward missing the last 16 second leg tie against Real Madrid in 2018, then both legs against Man United at the same stage this season.In June last year, his teammate Gianluigi Buffon was handed a three-match suspension after a tirade against referee Michael Oliver following his former club Juventus’ similarly dramatic quarter-final defeat by Real Madrid.Former PSG defender Serge Aurier was the first player to be banned by UEFA for comments made on social media in 2015.Neymar’s ban comes on the eve of his return to PSG’s starting line-up after injury for Saturday’s French Cup final against Rennes.He made his first appearance since January 23 as a second-half substitute in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Monaco as PSG celebrated clinching a sixth Ligue 1 crown in seven yearsShare on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: NeymarLausanne, Switzerland | AFP | Neymar was suspended for three Champions League matches by UEFA on Friday for a foul-mouthed tirade at match officials following Paris Saint-Germain’s shock exit from this season’s tournament to Manchester United.The Brazil star missed the 3-1 Champions League second leg last 16 defeat on March 6 through injury, but told match officials “to go fuck yourselves” on social media after watching on from the sidelines at the Parc des Princes.Neymar was found guilty of “insulting/molesting acts against match official”, European football’s governing body announced in a statement after opening an inquiry into his outburst on March 22.The 27-year-old, who will now miss half of PSG’s group stage matches in the Champions League next season, was angry with the award of a decisive injury-time penalty which Marcus Rashford scored to send United through.“It’s a disgrace. They get four guys who don’t understand football to watch a slow motion replay in front of the TV,” Neymar wrote in Portuguese on Instagram after the game.He had watched on incredulous from the sidelines as United were awarded the spot-kick for a debateable handball via the video assistant referee (VAR) system, allowing Rashford to fire United into the quarter-finals on away goals.Neymar was reportedly so enraged by the decision to give the penalty that he had to be restrained by PSG staff to stop him entering the referee’s dressing room.United were given the spot-kick after Presnel Kimpembe was judged to have handled Diogo Dalot’s shot.last_img read more

Twitter doesn’t take kindly after BCCI commentator says ‘every Indian must know Hindi!’

Powered by Firework The Ranji Trophy match between Karnataka and Baroda on Thursday witnessed controversy after a BCCI commentator declared that ‘every Indian should know Hindi as it is our mother tongue.’ Ironically enough, the match is being contested by the two non-Hindi speaking states at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. The incident took the social media by storm with angry netizens questioning the remark while some took it too offensively.Advertisement Picture Credit: Cricket CountryDuring the seventh over of Baroda’s second innings, one of the two on-air commentators said,‘I liked the fact that Sunil Gavaskar is commentating in Hindi and is giving his valuable in the same language. I also loved it that he called the dot ball as a ‘bindi’ ball.”Advertisement While his partner, the other commentator Sushil Doshi responded in a similar manner, “Every Indian must know Hindi. This is our mother tongue. There is no bigger language than this.”“In fact, I look at those people with a lot of anger who say that we are cricketers still we should talk in Hindi? You are staying in India then you will obviously speak its mother tongue,” he further added.Advertisement And naturally these statements brewed up a storm on social media as several fans quickly took to Twitter to voice their discontent.Check out some of the furious reactions to the controversial comment:According to a 2011 Census, only 26 percent of the country’s population use Hindi as their mother tongue; while the data also revealed that, even though Hindi is the most widely spoken language in the country, almost six in every 10 people, or 56.37 per cent of the citizens, do not identify it as their first language or mother tongue. You may also like:Should India’s athletes voice their political opinion on social media?ICC to review aggressive Bangladesh celebration footage against India at the U19 World Cup Advertisementlast_img read more

Hemp bill signed into law at the Ohio State Fair

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 57 into law, decriminalizing hemp and paving the way for the development of a new hemp industry in our state. The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will administer the newly-created hemp program.Hemp is a cannabis plant that does not produce intoxicating effects, grown for its many industrial uses. Hemp contains a fiber, a grain, and oil that can be extracted for CBD, which is now being used in food and dietary supplements.The hemp program sets up a licensing structure for farmers who are interested in growing the crop and those interested in processing it. It also allows for universities to grow and cultivate the crop for research purposes. ODA will also be testing CBD and hemp products for safety and accurate labeling to protect Ohio consumers.“Industrial hemp will give Ohio farmers another crop option to help them diversify their farms and possibly find another stream of revenue to offset years of declining commodity prices,” said Adam Sharp, Executive Vice President, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. “We are pleased that the state legislature passed and Governor DeWine signed SB 57 and we look forward to working with the Ohio Department of Agriculture as the program begins to take shape.”ODA has created a web page to explain the hemp program and gather information from those interested in growing or processing the crop.DeWine signed the bill at the conclusion of the Joint Legislative Agriculture Committee Meeting Ohio House of Representatives Agriculture and Rural Development Committee and the Ohio Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee meeting held at the Ohio State Fair in the Nationwide Donahey Land & Living Building. The bicameral group showcased the work they’ve accomplished and heard testimony on various food and agricultural issues at the event.last_img read more

Blame it on MySpace: Ad Spending on Social Networks Expected to Drop 3% This Year

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… As the Wall Street Journal points out, though, it is also important to note that eMarketer predicted a 10.2% growth in ad spending for 2009 in December 2008. For the upcoming years, eMarketer predicts that the market will rebound and it predicts a 13.2% increase in ad spending in 2010. However, given how far off eMarketer’s prediction for 2009 was, we will just take this projection with a grain of salt.More Bad News for MySpaceOverall, this is obviously even more bad news for MySpace, which is already struggling to just keep its current user base from moving to other services. Even as the MySpace team tries to improve the service and streamline its business, it faces an extremely tough challenger in Facebook, which also has a lot of momentum behind it right now. frederic lardinois Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Tags:#advertising#Facebook#news#NYT#social networks#web According to a new report from eMarketer, paid advertising on social networks in the US will drop 3% in 2009. In 2008, advertisers spent $1.175 billion on ads on social networks, but eMarketer predicts that this number will fall to $1.14 billion this year. The main culprit here is MySpace. EMarketer expects that ad spending on the social network will fall 15% in 2009. At the same time, it expects to see a 9% growth in ad spending on Facebook, and most other social networks are also doing just fine. EMarketer expects that this drop will be short-lived, however, and predicts a 13.2% increase in ad spending in 2010.It’s important to stress that except for MySpace, most other social networks are still doing just fine, and advertisers have actually increased their ad spending on Facebook and other social networks. Also, while most advertisers only spend a relatively small amount of money on ads on widgets and applications, the amount of money companies spend on advertising on these platforms will actually increase from $40 million to $70 million. last_img read more
