5 Things Financially Reckless Young People Say
By Dan Rafter, FOX Business
Michael Chadwick has a simple message for 20-somethings: You can't have everything you want right away. You can't live in the same kind of home your parents have. You can't motor around town in the same kind of car your parents drive. And you can't afford to follow your parents' example and take two vacations a year.
Is More Entertainment Worth Less Legroom on Your Flight?
By Scott McCartney, The Wall Street Journal
There’s a growing problem underfoot in airline seats: foot space.

By Tami Luhby, CNN Money
Here's a little-known, scary stat: More than half of middle class kids who start college fail to earn a bachelor's degree within six to eight years.

A college degree, once a ticket to the middle class, is now a must-have to maintain that status.

By Kate Seamons, Fox News Health
One of your vices could one day be a little more virtuous: Scientists are announcing on Wednesday that they've figured out how to make chocolate healthier. The findings will be detailed by researchers from Belgium's Ghent University and the University of Ghana at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Denver, and center around how antioxidant-rich the sweet is. As a press release explains, it all comes down to tweaking the process. Cocoa beans are removed from pods, fermented in baskets, sun-dried, and then roasted.

Google could soon let you pay bills in Gmail
By Jose Pagliery, CNN Money
Google is working on a secret project to let users pay bills directly through its email service Gmail, according to tech news site Re/code. According to Re/code, Google is calling it "Pony Express." That's a reference to the 1860s mail delivery system in the mostly desolate American West that relied on horseback riders as relays. They vastly shortened delivery time and made it easier to communicate (until they were replaced by the telegraph).
To boost your memory, take a nap, study says
By Matt Cantor, FOXNews
A new study supports the idea that nap time shouldn't only be for kids. Researchers in Germany found that subjects who napped for 45 to 60 minutes were five times better at a memory task than those who watched a movie instead, MarketWatch reports. The memory task involved recalling 90 single words, as well as 120 unrelated pairs of words—phrases like "milk taxi," a researcher says in a press release.
