Top 10 Richest Women In the World
Today we’re going to talk about the 10 richest women in the world. Most of these women inherited their fortunes rather than building them, but we have to give them credit for saving their fortunes, controlling businesses, and for making those fortunes grow.

Top 10 Career-Ending Blunders of All Time
Anyone who has spent significant time in the real world understands that one misstep can ruin a promising or even established career. It’s why we choose not to become too comfy around our coworkers, speak our minds in the office, or behave in any manner that indicates we’re unprofessional. The fear of what could happen is enough to keep most people in check, especially if they live in the public eye. Just look at the prominent people listed below — their successful careers were gleefully guillotined in public by the merciless, blood-thirsty lynch mob that is the media. Of course, in some cases, these people were already suffering career declines, and their so-called "career-ending" blunders didn’t really end their careers, but crippled them. Semantics aside, we can all agree that their falls from grace were cringe-worthy.

Top 10 Over Rated Acts in Music Today
The mainstream music industry does a good job of catering to low expectations. Such expectations are consistently low thanks to the lack of opposition within the music industry (that’s what indie music is inherently for). The industry wouldn’t be what it is without being an absolutely totalitarian entity, one that holds a dangerous amount of sway over the public consciousness. Too many listeners are lazy.
