I love traveling and I think anyone can make travel a part of their lives with a little penny pinching. You might have to save up for an airline ticket, but there are lots of little things you can do to save money while you are on a trip. Whether you pack just a backpack and stay in a hostel, or walk instead of hire taxis, there are always ways to travel on a shoestring! Check out five things I always do when planning my trip or while on the road: - By Chelsea Fuss

- Is there any artist in pop music harder to pin down politically than Taylor Swift? In a world where Lady Gaga stumps for gay marriage and Jay-Z parties with the President, Swift maintains a prim inoffensiveness, always careful to stay within the bounds of acceptability for both the country fans at Wal-Mart and the latte-sippers in Starbucks. As Swift told NPR, "I don't have enough wisdom about myself as a person yet to go out there and say…'Vote for this person.'"
Taylor Swift Election Day
In that same NPR interview, Swift revealed that she is definitely voting in this election, and that she has no plans to reveal whether she's leaning left or right. That doesn't mean that we can't speculate, though. Looking at demographics, philanthropy and the messages in her lyrics, it's time to figure out once and for all who Taylor Swift is voting for.
If, as they say, demography is destiny, then it should be fairly easy to get a handle on who Taylor Swift supports: Just look at the preferences...Read More »

Ladies, congrats on being coveted. Both presidential campaigns and most pundits agree that women are some of the most sought-after voters in this election. But for all the shout-outs to the ailing grandmothers and hardworking moms of America, it's not totally clear what's at stake for women in 2012. We might all agree that women are an important voting bloc, but there's little consensus on which issues and priorities we collectively care about.

Still, the lack of analysis on what women stand to lose (or gain) on November 6 has been pretty surprising. NARAL tracks reproductive-rights votes, Emily's List points the way to strong female candidates, and NOW offers a compare-contrast between Romney and Obama. But what about the big picture?

(In a recent United Nations study of proportional gender representation in government, the U.S. ranked 78th, tied with Turkmenistan.) But according to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand - who has campaigned heavily for other female candidates in...Read More »
