You know how actresses love to talk about their instincts? 9-years-old Quvenzhane Wallis, now the youngest Best Actress nominee ever, doesn't talk, she does. The little girl from a small town in Louisiana who helped turn a micro-budget film by a first time director into an Oscar nominee sweeper has no prior experience in Hollywood, film or acting in general. When the 85th Annual Oscar nominations were announced Thursday morning (see the full list here), somewhere sandwiched somewhere between the names Abe Lincoln and Anne Hathaway was the name Quvenzhane (nickname "Nazie") Wallis. Here's why:

New year, maybe new job? If you're on the hunt for a job, you need a resume. Perhaps you're wondering how to improve one that already exists. Perhaps you don't have a resume and need to create one. You have two options: You can send your credentials off to a resume writing service and pay big bucks -- figure on at least $100 -- or you can do some research and tackle the job yourself -- for free. Frugal consumers will clearly opt for the latter.

And, if she doesn't, people are already on the job trying to figure out what other left-leaning woman might be good at the very top of the ticket. No doubt, Republicans have their eye on a few women for 2016, as well.
There are now plenty to choose from, as we now have 20 women in the U.S. Senate, most of them Democrats. We could even see a mother of young children vying for the Oval Office - possibly Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, whose four-year-old son Henry was on hand to help with her latest swearing...Read More »

Make any gig more fun with these 6 tips.
Think back: Remember all the reasons you took this job in the first place. Was it the sweet hours? A quickie commute? Tons of responsibility?

Escape your desk: Working endless hours can affect your productivity. Take an honest-to-goodness lunch break (we know, crazy, right?) and eat your salad in the park or hit a yoga class. You'll be more effective after a time-out, research shows.
Set two goals: Make one short-term-"I'll go to two networking events this month"-to get an instant sense of satisfaction that you're opening doors to a happier future. The other should be bigger-picture: "In a year I want to get promoted." Clear-cut goals increase your energy and...Read More »
