Happy Friday! Hope you haven't fallen for any pranks yet! #april1st

Here are seven of the top stories and resources that I have been checking out this week:

  1. There is a phrase that is sometimes used called "the criminalization of poverty." This article talks about such an instance that led to a young man's death. Regardless of your political leanings and public policy beliefs, such stories should break all of our hearts. This article specifically deals with the topic of criminal fines. One stat from the article: "In 1986, 12 percent of those incarcerated nationally were also fined, while in 2004 this number had increased to 37 percent."
  2. "The College Board, the nonprofit organization that owns the [SAT], told Reuters it recycles United States SAT tests for overseas test-taker." And apparently they didn't think that might cause some cheating.
  3. What does 'cage-free' eggs mean? Apparently, not much.
  4. Looking for some extra income? Here are some side hustle ideas.
  5. Here is a new (AND FREE) ebook from Michael Hyatt on how to keep your message from getting lost online.
  6. Run into the issue of trying to email files that are too large? Here's some help.
  7. And, lastly, Google just released something epic. 

Have a phenomenal weekend and remember to spend time with your loved ones!

Oh, and here is one quote that I'm working on applying to my life right now: 

Cows run away from the storm while the buffalo charges toward it - and gets through it quicker. Whenever Iā€™m confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment, I become the buffalo.
— Wilma Mankiller, 1st female chief of the Cherokee nation
