7 Days. 7 Highlights.

7 Days. 7 Highlights.

As I'm finishing up this post early Friday morning, I'm also finishing off an awesome cup o' joe from Hubbard & Cravens. I'm banking on this coffee to get me through the homestretch to an exciting weekend (a weekend filled with a banquet, an interview for my pastoral ordination process, and preaching on Sunday). What's your go-to energy boost? 

Here's my wrap-up of the most interesting stories, studies, and advice from around the internet during this past week. Enjoy!

  1. We all probably assume the rich live the longest of anyone. But the newest research is showing that the life-expectancy between those in poverty and the rich is GROWING. Which, in my opinion, should be unacceptable for 21st Century humanity.
  2. The booming tech industry is at risk for generating some of the negative side-effects of ill-planned gentrification. Here are a few ways that can be avoided
  3. Looking to increase your Facebook presence? Here's some advice on how to grow your FB influence.
  4. So that Parmesan cheese you sprinkle on your favorite dinner dishes may not be...Parmesan. Learn more about this crime against food here.
  5. Finances are complicated...and often frustrating. Here's a guide to help you get your bearings. 
  6. And speaking of finances, research is showing that student debt is disproportionately hurting minorities
  7. In other not-good news, "the number of hate groups in the United States rose dramatically in 2015."

This is what has held my attention this week - I hope you find it educational and inspirational as well!
