first_img 92SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Details 1. Never forget what you’re saving forKeep your goal in mind. Everyone has a different savings goal whether it is putting away money for retirement or saving for a vacation. When you go shopping you need to keep your goal in the back of your mind. It can be easy to focus on what you are losing out on but instead you should focus on what you are going to get in return.2. When you get a raise, don’t change a thingWhen you get your first paycheck after a raise it is easy to look at that big number and see all the new things you can buy with it. However, there is no reason to change the way that you have been living. Don’t feel the need to keep up with the Joneses, you’ve been living happily on your previous income with no complaints. Use that extra cash as additional savings. 3. Stay true to your budgetOnce you know what you can spend each week, stick to that amount. Before you go shopping, make a list and only get the things that you need. I know those Keebler elves can make some incredible cookies and when they are on sale they are darn near irresistible, but if they aren’t in your budget, you don’t need them. Not everyone can operate by creating a list, but most people know what they can spend without going under. Don’t get wild with your spending.4. Keep your focus on earningSaving is incredibly important, but you should never stop trying to earn more. Whether that means working hard for a promotion or taking on a side job, having more money generally solves more problems than it causes. Remember that investing in yourself will yield a high return, so don’t be afraid to consider more education or certifications even if it costs you something upfront. You can’t save if you don’t earn, and earning more means more potential savings.last_img read more

Sundar Pichai, Google’s Indian-American CEO has predicted which teams will clash in the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and said he was “rooting” for the men in blue to emerge victoriously. Describing himself as a passionate cricket fan, the 46-year-old head of California-based internet giant said that when he came to the US, he found baseball a bit challenging. Speaking to a Washington audience that included US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and top corporate executives from India and the US during the India Ideas Summit of USIBC wherein he received the Global Leadership Award, Pichai outlined who would play the final.“It (ICC Cricket World Cup final match) should be (between) England and India.

But, you know, Australia and New Zealand, these are all very, very good teams. In cricket when you run, you always take your bat with you. So I also ran between the base with my bat as well. So eventually, I realised baseball was a bit difficult. I can adjust to many things, but I’m going to stick to cricket. There is a cricket World Cup going on. It’s a wonderful tournament… rooting for India to do well. But there’s a lot at stake here,” Pichai said. The rain has played havoc in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with three games getting washed out. The Pakistan vs Sri Lanka clash and Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh clash in Bristol have all been washed out due to the rain. In fact, even a toss could not take place and this became the first World Cup in which two games were washed out without a ball being bowled. The South Africa vs West Indies clash in Southampton was also washed out but 7.3 overs were bowled in the Proteas innings.New Zealand is currently on top of the table while India is in the third spot. Looking at the weather situation, things could remain the same but fans would be hoping that the rain gods have mercy and allow the match between India and New Zealand to take place.last_img read more

Student group advocates for cage-free eggs

first_imgUSC ALIVE, an environmental student group, has launched a university-wide campaign to inform students that USC Hospitality does not purchase its eggs from cage-free farms, as UCLA and several other University of California schools do, in hopes to creating change at USC.Animal rights · James Nalto (right), a senior majoring in accounting and finance, signs a petition to stop using eggs from caged chickens. – Dan Doperalski | Daily Trojan USC buys its eggs from battery cage factory farms, which USC ALIVE says treats chickens cruelly.“In battery farms, hens are stuffed into cages with no room,” said Connie Gao, ALIVE’s director of external communications. “The cages are stacked on top of each other, so feces filters down. The hens end up covered in feces and so does their eggs.”As of Friday, more than 1,000 students signed ALIVE’s petition to try to convince the university to go cage-free, Gao said.“I hope it will be enough to change the university’s mind,” she said.When hens are raised in a cage-free environment, they can exercise, spread their wings, and lay eggs in nests, Gao said, making the cage-free environment more sustainable and yield healthier eggs.Kris Klinger, director of USC Hospitality, said he met with the president of Wilcox Farms, a company that sells cage-free eggs to several universities, to discuss making USC a new customer.“They said they didn’t have enough product in their distribution channels right now, but we do plan on switching. We’re just not sure when,” Klinger said.One of the university’s primary concerns is the cost of cage-free eggs, Klinger said, a consideration that factors into all of USC Hospitality’s decisions. For example, USC Hospitality’s decision to offer students the Trojan Plan, an unlimited meal plan, is expensive for the university.“It did cost the university more money,” Klinger said.According to Klinger, Wilcox Farms, Stanford’s new provider, is currently unable to fulfill the demands of another large university such as USC. He said the earliest USC would go cage-free is next fall.“We understand it is the right thing to do,” Klinger said. “We just want to make sure it makes financial sense.”The cost per egg should not be a factor, said Lindsay Wolf, campaign director of the Humane Alliance in Southern California, a new branch of the Humane League, which has been promoting cage-free eggs with universities on the East Coast.“Cage-free adds a couple of pennies per egg, and in the long run students will pay about 10 cents more for an omelet,” Wolf said.At every university Wolf has worked, she said she has found the majority of students to be supportive of the cage-free alternative.“Ninety percent of students say they’ll pay more for a healthier and tastier egg,” she said.Many universities in California, including UCLA and Stanford have made the switch to cage free.Because voters passed Proposition 2, operating a battery cage farm will be illegal beginning in 2015.“Battery cages are criminal activity,” Gao said. “They treat their animals and workers badly.”When chicken feces are not disposed of, they accumulate, exposing workers to high amounts of ammonia, Gao said, adding that feces-covered eggs are much more likely to be contaminated with salmonella.USC ALIVE created the petition to eradicate USC Hospitality’s qualms about the increased cost.“Right now USC is hesitant because they’re not sure if students will be willing to pay a little more,” Wolf said. “The petition shows [the university] that students are aware and want to make the switch.”last_img read more
