How To Pick A Lifestyle Consistent With Your Passion

Too many people, young and older, let their career and their lifestyle happen to them, rather than proactively making things happen based on their personal passions, skills, and interests. Others make decisions based on someone else’s interests, such as the father who wants his son to take over the family business, or dreams openly of having a doctor in the family. Neither of these approaches is likely to lead to a satisfying career or personal happiness for you.

These days, with the instant access to information and experts in every field around the world, and the wealth of personal …read more

The suspended Florida State quarterback took the field for warm-ups before his team’s game on Saturday night in full pads and wearing his helmet even though he was barred from playing. Winston did this “after apparently being told he would not be allowed to dress for the game,” according to ESPN’s Chris Fowler. Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, seemingly quite exasperated, sent Winston back to the locker room to change.

Activists, Journalists Killed In Spate Of Assassinations In Libya

CAIRO (AP) — Targeted killings in Libya over two days left 10 rights activists, journalists, and members of the security forces dead in the country’s east, local security officials said Saturday.

Among the slain Thursday and Friday were two activist bloggers, and four current and former military and police officers. The officials said three other people who were targeted survived assassination attempts in the eastern city of Benghazi. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters.

The identity of the assailants was not immediately known. Islamic radical militias, however, have been …read more

'Women > Winning' Is A 'College GameDay' Sign Of Change

Florida State may have put it hopes of a repeating as national champion at risk by (eventually) suspending Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston for an important game against a major rival. But, perhaps, it achieved, even if only reluctantly, a more important victory for its female students and fans.

Following a vulgar, misogynistic outburst on campus earlier this week, the redshirt sophomore superstar was sidelined for No. 1 Florida State’s nationally-televised clash against No. 22 Clemson. The University initially suspended Winston for just the first half …read more

Tesla Falls Yet Again As Wall Street Sobers On Stock

Wall Street may finally be sobering on Tesla.

The stock price for the electric automaker has soared during the past year, but it fell on Friday after a Goldman Sachs analyst predicted the company will need at least $6 billion over the next 11 years to make its vehicles go mainstream, Bloomberg reported.

If billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, the company’s chairman and CEO, wants Tesla’s vehicles to be as popular as Apple’s iPhone or Ford’s Model T, the company will have to be producing between 1.8 million and 3.2 million vehicles a year by …read more

ESPN's Sam Ponder: It Shouldn't Be This Hard For Jameis Winston To Respect Women

ESPN’s Samantha Ponder understands that the spotlight is on Jameis Winston.
