10 Futuristic Technologies We Wish Existed Right Now

As technology invents and reinvents the way we live our lives and think about things, one thing is for sure: the future may never truly arrive -- at least not how we want it to. As nerds, we've become accustomed to being teased with countless painfully plausible devices from our favorite movies, books and shows that at times seem like they're only a year or two away from proper execution in our digital world, until we realize that it's been five years since we read the article telling us that it was finally happening. Some of the fictionalized tech exhibited in this list isn't necessarily from a futuristic timeline, but is futuristic to us since we don't have it yet. Maybe one day we'll get our mitts on this fine machinery, but until then, all we can do is hope. Hope, of course, and look to the future.

5 Things You Should Do Before Tying the Knot

I’m at a friend’s wedding this weekend, traveling with my own husband and kids. The wedding invitation labelled the event as a “triumph of hope over experience”. It is that, and I’m honored to be invited as a witness. But it’s also a business arrangement, something I’m sure my friend (a respected economist) is well aware of. I haven’t pried into the monetary details of their union, but I’m sure they’ve talked about it. There are myriad good approaches to the business of marriage. J.D. often mentions that he and his wife, Kris, don’t share finances. By contrast, my husband and I have completely merged our money: Both of our names are on every bank account, asset, and debt we have. We share every penny, and every decision about what to do with those pennies. Whether you choose to go all in like we did or hold onto your independence, you live with your spouse’s spending choices — for good or ill. If you have kids, they’ll inherit the fruits of your shared financial life. And while research suggests money isn’t as responsible for divorce as many experts believe, it can certainly sour goodwill in a relationship. Trust me on this one. The really dangerous part is to pretend marriage that marriage has nothing to do with money.

5 Best Sites to Help Students Prepare for the SATs

Through the years, I have tutored many kids for the SATs. Many were students whose parents couldn’t afford to pay for tutoring lessons; others were just looking for resources to be able to study on their own.

Parents search for ways to help their kids but find themselves having to spend hundreds of dollars on study material. Well, with a belief that everyone should have the same opportunities, I have prepared a list of sites where any student can prepare for the SAT test for free.

8 Reasons To Switch To Windows 7 (If You Haven't Already)

Recently, CNET reported that Windows 7 has captured ten percent of the personal computer market. That means, now, 1 in 10 computers worldwide runs on Windows 7. There are no doubts about the fact that Windows 7 was received with open arms by not only the average computer user, but also by people who jump on every opportunity of criticizing Microsoft. The company drew a lot of flak for Vista, and a huge number of PC users were so frustrated that they went back to XP. But Windows 7 changed the game altogether. Being a user of Windows 7 for the last few months, I have personally found it to be a great improvement to its predecessors. If you are still contemplating a switch to Windows 7 and have some doubts in mind then this article aims to clear the air.

7 Must Read Life Lessons from Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States. He served from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln successfully led the United States through its darkest hour … the American Civil War. In the end, Lincoln was able to preserve the Union and end slavery. Prior to his election in 1860, as the first U.S. Republican president, Lincoln was a country lawyer, an Illinois state legislator, a member of the United States House of Representatives, and an unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Senate twice. Concerning slavery, Lincoln was forthright and open in his opposition to the expansion of slavery. This attitude earned him the Republican nomination in 1860; later that year he was elected president. Just six days after a large-scale surrender of the Confederate forces (under General Robert E. Lee), Lincoln became the first American president to be assassinated. Lincoln is considered by scholars to be one of the greatest U.S. presidents to ever take office.
