It's hard to believe that it's been 2 years since Steve Jobs passed away. Steve left a legacy that only few can do. He designed products that have changed our lives. While he is missed, life has gone on and so has Apple. We have a new iOS, new iPads, new iPhone, new Macs - and while he didn't have his hands directly in this new Apple technology - he is the reason that we have them today. Like many of you, I too jumped in on the Apple bandwagon - paying lots of money for fancy technologies created by Steve Jobs. I've read stories of how difficult a man he was to work for, how some saw him as strange. Even if those cases were such, we are all a little off, and this man left us many brilliant things. In addition to all of the fantastic technology products Steve created, he also left us with quotes that are unforgettable. I find it interesting to see he had so many remarkable things to say about life here on Earth and his death.

Stuart Tyson + Solange Sandstrom Back when blogs were first becoming a thing, lots of companies instituted non-disclosure policies that prevented employees from writing about their workplace--or blogging at all! These days, nearly everyone who has Internet access and something to say has some sort of presence on social media or a blogging platform, so it's that much harder for corporations to control subtle messaging outside work hours.
Recently, a London lawyer at Berwin Leighton Paisner was asked to remove her fashion blog from the Web after she began detailing her firm's dress code. She claims that women were instructed to wear only "neutral T-shirt bras and non-VPL knickers" because, according to the firm, "Nothing ruins an outfit like bumpy lace showing through your top or bulges on your bottom."

WealthyAmerica is in the midst of an empathy crisis, driven by multiple factors. First, there's the obvious: increased anonymous use of the Internet allows a lack of empathy to thrive, not to mention the fact that even close friends and family members interact more on social media than they do in real life these days. Humans don't see each other's faces the way we used to. We aren't in the same room when we communicate. We do more typing than we do talking, and as Louis C.K. so brilliantly pointed out recently, that lack of physical communication can lead to disastrous results.Read More »from An Embarrassment of Riches: Wealthy People Lack Empathy, Ethics

Millennials raised with instant messaging and texting over talking are described as having "a 48% decrease in empathetic concern" compared to young people in 1979, according to Psychology Today. Research also shows "that today's college students were less likely to have empathetic feelings for people less fortunate than them." This kind of criticism of Millennials

Abercrombie & Fitch Headquarters is far from perfect.Abercrombie & Fitch is famously controversial for its provocative ad campaigns, its CEO's commitment to not making plus-size clothing, and its very strict dress codes. Here, a former employee at Abercrombie's corporate headquarters explains what working in the thick of the brand was really like.
As told to Elisa Benson
"Did I not tell you it was supposed to be casual?" was the first thing my interviewer said to me when I showed up at Abercrombie's corporate headquarters in 2007. I was dressed for my first "big kid" job - tie, jacket, suit. She was wearing a fleece and jeans. I immediately rolled up my sleeves and ditched the tie (I probably looked like the end of a wedding), and surprisingly, the rest of the interview went well. A week later, the job was mine.Read More »from Confession: What It's Really like Working at Abercrombie & Fitch's Corporate Headquarters

Spend Less on Insurance
Pit insurers against one another
Don't auto-renew. Instead, spend 20 minutes comparing quotes (EInsurance.com is a good place to start). Then use competitor prices to renegotiate your rate. Say to the rep: "If I switch to State Farm, I can save $500. What can you do for me?"
Tailor your plan
Some insurers offer a better rate if you've stopped commuting or have an honor roll student on the policy. A tailored plan could save you between $460 and $1,100 a year, according to a study by CarInsurance.com.

,6:30 am - My iPhone starts screaming in my ear. For once I'm not short on sleep though. Since my job often requires me waking up around 5 am, 6:30 has become my new "sleeping in." I get ready, put on my business casual for work, then my favorite part of morning prep: I put on my Disneyland Resort name tag.
I'm a fresh Disneyland Resort CM (Cast Member), participating in the Disney College Program, an internship opportunity offered at the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. You'd be surprised how many misconceptions there are about working at the Resort; the most common FAQs are if I'm Mickey Mouse (which I'm not, there's only one Mickey Mouse, and that's the real one!) and if I ride rides all day. No.Read More »from Behind the Scenes at Disneyland: A Day in the Life of a Cast Member

,On October 18th the remake of the classic horror film, Carrie, will be released. The film is based on the Stephen King novel about a girl who suddenly discovers she has telekinetic powers after being bullied by girls in school. The original 1976 film starred a young Sissy Spacek in the lead role and launched her career.
The remake, directed by Kimberly Pierce of Boys Don't Cry fame, stars Chloë Grace Moretz, a young actress who launched into fame after her very first role, which was in the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror. In an interview with W Magazine, Chloë talks about her audition for The Amityville Horror when she was 6 years old. "I did about four or five auditions and had to cry at every single one. When you're that young, it's a huge feat to be able to cry, so I did the same crying scene over and over to prove that I could, and that I wasn't making myself crazy doing it."
