money rainYou shouldn't have to dread looking at your bank account, should you?

The sad story is similar for most of us, though: we try to save, but at the end of the month we somehow end up back at square one or with less cash than we thought we had. Oftentimes, it's the most overlooked aspects of our spending that really chip away at our checkbook.

If you're disappointed at the number in your bank account, it may very well be due to your overlooked bad habits. Fortunately, some small changes over time can ultimately help you keep money in your pocket without having to sacrifice too many comforts.

So, how can you start saving sooner rather than later?

Stop Smoking

If you smoke a pack of cigarettes per day, you could easily be spending thousands of dollars per year on smoking alone. Think about it: you could potentially have five figures in a savings account right now if you would have quit five years ago. Although hindsight is 20/20, it's never too late to stop smoking and rethink the negative impact not only on your health but also your bank account.

Each year, the Art Fund hosts its Museum of the Year ceremony. Last year, the winner was the Victoria and Albert Museum. Home to some of the most beautiful exhibitions London has to offer, the Victoria and Albert has long collaborated with the Art Fund to help build its collection.

The Art Fund will be hosting its annual Museum of the Year celebration on 5 July 2017. This year, the ceremony will be held at the British Museum in London, and there are some very strong contenders for the award. The winner will be awarded £100,000, and all other finalists are recognized for their fantastic achievements towards furthering the arts with prizes of £10,000 each.

In 2016, the Art Fund named the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) museum of the year. Stephen Deuchar, director of the Art Fund and chair of the judges, said: “It was already one of the best-loved museums in the country: this year it has indisputably become one of the best museums in the world.”

Much excitement is building on the coronation of the Museum of the Year 2017, but what is it that made the V&A so special, and such a worthy winner in 2016?

It feels like GTA V was only just released, but it’s been almost four years since Rockstar’s flagship franchise returned to the sunny streets and beaches of Los Santos, a fictional composite of Los Angeles. Even though the studio is gearing up for their sequel to Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar cannot escape speculation regarding their plans for the next installment of the Grand Theft Auto game series.

As of now, no official word has come from the company about a new GTA title. Recent legal battles between the franchise creators have fans wondering if a new installment will even happen, but the record-breaking sales of the last release will undoubtedly force the Houser brothers and Leslie Benzies to deliver a new one shortly.

If the next GTA is set in the past, it won’t be the first time. However, we wager it will likely stay set in current times, as the last two have. With this in mind, one has to wonder what they will include as far as activities, events, and story lines are concerned. This is because the GTA games are nothing if not known for their attempt to mirror pop culture in a satirically twisted way. Whether it’s online dating, cannabis legalization, social media mania, or hybrid cars, the latest trends often make their way into the worlds created for the Grand Theft Auto games.

In 2010, former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship went to court following a massive explosion in which 29 miners died. After several years of investigations and court proceedings, it was determined that the CEO was at fault. He had violated a series of health and mine safety standards that caused the explosion. Blankenship was committed to a year in prison – a sentence that just finished at the beginning of May. Now, he wants vindication from the Supreme Court.

Blankenship Appeals the Supreme Court

The Upper Big Branch (UBB) disaster went down in history as one of the biggest corporation tragedies, but Blankenship is still pleading innocent, even after a guilty conviction and a year in prison. “We never give up,” says his attorney William Taylor regarding their efforts to clear his name. Taylor notified the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to inform them of the Supreme Court petition.

Taylor is convinced that the Supreme Court will hear their plea. “It’s a pretty clear issue,” he reported. “We’re either right or wrong about that.”
