Top 10 International Military Schools
Interestingly (though not surprisingly), not all countries operate their military academies in the same manner as the U.S. While most international military academies mirror their American counterparts in the mission of training men and women to become leaders within the armed forces, they do not all include a post-secondary styled education. After a bit of thought, I’ve included on this list some of the schools that do not offer such a program (namely the Brits and Brazilians). The reason for this is that the main focus of these lists – in my mind anyway – has always been the military training aspect. There happens to be a number of international schools that excel at producing superior military officers and deserve inclusion, in my opinion, on any list that tackles this subject. After all, the idea behind any military school is to develop leaders, and this they do exceedingly well.

The 40 Greatest Movies About the Summer
Surfing, sleep-away camp, sailing, fishing, baseball, golf, summer school, sharks, roadtrips, invading aliens: These are the things that summer is made for. At least in the movies. While the "summer blockbuster" has been a Hollywood staple since 1975, when "Jaws" was released, Steven Spielberg's classic was actually just the latest in a long line of films in another genre: the summer movie. These are the flicks in which the sun is blazing, the beach and ocean are calling, and everyone is looking for the cute blonde girl to have that summer fling with. Here then, is a list of 40 of the greatest summer movies of all time, presented in no real order. Sound Off with your favorites in the Comments. One last note: surfing movies are tricky, because as any Brah knows, the best waves really come in the winter. But since these movies just make us think about grabbing our surf boards and heading out to the water, we included them.
The 7 Deadly Sins of Concealed Carry: Using the Wrong Ammo
I had a lot of fun with the “Seven Deadly Sins of Handgun Shooting” series a couple of months ago, and hope you did too.

5 Naughty Things Your Credit Card Won't Buy
Credit card brands always brag about their cards' ability to expand your purchasing power and vie with each other for the greatest universal acceptance worldwide. Remember MasterCard's priceless slogan: "There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard"? Or Visa's: "It's everywhere you want to be"? It turns out there are some things credit cards won't buy. So you can leave home without it, to riff off of American Express' catchphrase. While credit companies typically want you to pull out their credit card for a purchase, the payment networks -- American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa -- won't approve so-called naughty purchases. These transactions are treated as high-risk activities or run afoul of federal law, even if state laws allow it.

15 Business Theories That Will Improve Your Life
Harvard Business School professor Clay Christensen is best known for introducing the theory of disruptive innovation, which Steve Jobs and other visionaries have used to map out successful strategies for their businesses. We spoke with Christensen a few weeks ago about his new book, "How Will You Measure Your Life," which looks at how we can apply successful case studies — for example, how Netflix disrupted the video retail industry — to our own lives. "We’re forced to look into the future, which has no data available about it," Christensen recently told LinkedIn employees. "This means that we either pursue a path that is a crap-shoot or are forced to look into theories of causality: What causes what and why."
