The Assistants #SRC2016

Image
I am participating in the Summer Reading Challenge again this year! I love it! The book I am currently reading is The Assistants by Camille Perri.
About The Book: Rule #1: All important men have assistants. Rule #2: Men rule the world. Still. Rule #3: There is enough money. There is so much money. Tina Fontana is a thirty-year-old executive assistant to Robert Barlow, the CEO of Titan Corp., a multinational media conglomerate. She’s excellent at her job and beloved by her famous boss - but after six years of making reservations and pouring drinks from bottles that cost more than her rent, the glamour of working for a media company in New York has completely faded, but her student loan debt has not. When a technical error with Robert’s expense report presents Tina with the opportunity to pay off the entire balance of her loans with what would essentially be pocket change for her boss, she hesitates. She’s always played by the rules, but this would be a life-changer. As Tina begins to f…

4 Items That Are Worth Their Higher Price Tag

Image
When your budget is stretched thin and you typically have more month left than money, it’s definitely a good idea to look for bargains whenever possible. However, while it is important to be frugal, you must also be wise about what you are buying. In some cases, spending less will ultimately mean paying more—especially if what you are buying is poorly made. For example, the following items are definitely worth spending more on now, so you can save more later: TiresBuying new tires often involves a serious case of sticker shock, especially when you need to replace all four at once. But this is definitely a product that is worth investing in. Inexpensive tires are more likely to vibrate, wear down faster and perform poorly in bad weather, and you will probably quickly regret saving $25 or $50 per tire when you are sliding all over the road with your precious family in the car. Fortunately, it is possible to find affordable prices on quality name brand tires; for example, TireBuyer.com sel…

Be A Stroke Hero!

Image
There are many super heroes out there. Moms, Dads, Grandparents, people who are simply lending a hand to others. We consider those people super heroes. Many of those super heroes are behind the scenes; they never get recognition for what they do, and that is okay with them. But what if you could be a super hero that saves lives? You might be thinking – wow, that would be a big deal – right? It is much easier than you might think!  May is American Stroke Month, so we’re working with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association and the Ad Council to raise awareness about Stroke knowledge, prevention, and what to do in an emergency. Stroke is the No. 1 preventable cause of disability – and 80 percent of strokes are preventable! You don’t need superpowers to be a Stroke Hero.

The House Of Bradbury #SRC2016

Image
I am participating in the Summer Reading Challenge again this year! I love it! The book I am currently reading is The House Of Bradbury by Nicole Meier. About The Book: Mia Gladwell's life is going nowhere. The media has skewered her debut novel, her fiance Carson, a successful Hollywood producer, has jumped ship, and now she's living in her sister's carriage house unattached, unemployed, and uninspired. Then she learns that the Los Angeles estate of iconic author Ray Bradbury is up for sale, and she feels an immediate urge to buy the wonky old house, convinced that moving into the late author's home will inspire her to create her best work yet. Life in the Bradbury house is not what Mia imagined, however. Soon after moving in, to fulfill a debt she owes to Carson, she agrees to take in a pill-popping young actress as a tenant, and suddenly she finds herself in a balancing act between her needy ex, an unpredictable starlet, and her disapproving sister, who's keeping …

3 Educational Activities That Will Benefit Children With Dyslexia

Image
Dyslexia is one of the most well-known learning disabilities, with 1 in 5 students facing the challenges it presents. Although it used to be widely believed that boys were more likely to be dyslexic than girls, recent studies from Yale University show the disorder affects both boys and girls equally. While dyslexia can present some roadblocks to the intellectual development of many children, it can be overcome with creative approaches to learning. Here are three activities that can help children get beyond their struggle with dyslexia. Play Word GamesA great way to help children pick up new words and phrases is to play a game that engages their minds in different ways. Whether it’s Scrabble, a crossword puzzle or a homemade flash card memory game, by adding an element of fun to the learning process you encourage them to develop new strategies in recognizing different words and making connections to words they already know. Games like these put more focus on a single word, instead of se…
