Longest Running TV Game Shows

Television game shows have been entertaining America and challenging minds for decades. With cash, prizes and trips on offer, it’s no surprise that viewers tune in day after day to see who might win big. 

Jeopardy

If you have questions, then Jeopardy will provide the answers. This show has been awarded 27 Daytime Television Emmys and its viewers are in the millions. Host Alex Trebek has been at the forefront of this successful game show, giving the answers to contestants who buzz in to give the quickest question response. 

Jeopardy allows the winner to continue playing until they are defeated. It was Ken Jennings in 2004 that had everyone wondering just how far he would go in the game. The answer was 74 wins with over $2.5 million in winnings. The show has been on air since 1984 and there is no end in sight.

When and How to Refinance Your Mortgage

Many homeowners choose to refinance to lock in a fixed interest rate or reduce their monthly payment. However, a lower payment doesn’t always mean you’ll save money. Knowing the right time and process for refinancing goes a long way toward making a wise decision.

Refinancing Pros and Cons

There are several pros to refinancing.

-Lower interest rates can significantly reduce your monthly payment and the overall amount you pay.

-Shortening the length of your mortgage term increases your monthly payment, but saves you much more in the long run. However, be aware that you may do just as well by paying a little extra each month under your current terms.

Is a Part-Time MBA Right For You?

Is a Part-Time MBA Right For You?

An MBA has long been considered a golden ticket to better employment opportunities. As great as that sounds, attending a full-time MBA program remains impracticable for many people. However, a part-time MBA can help individuals who may otherwise pass up the opportunity to expand on their professional knowledge. But is a part-time MBA really worth the effort? The following can help you decide if a part-time MBA is right for you. 

No Time for Full-Time

The vast majority of people that choose to do a part-time MBA do so because they already have a career. They usually cannot devote the time necessary to participate in a full-time program. Part-time programs allow students to achieve success while still maintaining important work and family commitments. This is obviously an important factor, as more people are choosing to go the part-time route.

Bring a Touch of Tuscan Sun into Your Home

Bring a Touch of Tuscan Sun into Your Home

What does the scent of buttery garlic, fresh herbs and spices have in common with the magnificence of hewn marble and the lightly textured coolness of terracotta? They’re all evocative of the Italian countryside, just as Tuscan style has come to represent pastoral Italy anywhere in the world. 

Italian Palette

Warm, earthy colors typify the fertile ground and bright sunshine of rural Italy. Terracotta browns, golden yellows and hints of rich olive greens or deep vineyard purples epitomize the scent of freshly turned earth and sun-ripened grapes.

Because Tuscan color schemes use bold, dark colors on walls, it is important to use lighter neutrals in your furnishings. The eye is drawn toward lighter colors, so cognac or dusty creams are great for seating areas. This further emphasizes themes of family and togetherness.

What Adoption is Really Like

Adoption is a polarizing subject. Skim through news articles and you’ll find both sides of the spectrum: excited parents cherishing the tiny life they get to share, and heartbreaking stories of kids wounded so deeply that they only know how to hurt others.

Adoption is complex. Its nuances are deep and varied. There’s joy and sorrow, defeat and victory, wounding and healing in the process.

Kids from Hard Places

According to Dr. Karen Purvis, director of the TCU Institute of Child Development, every child has some risk factors that can affect their lives.

  1.     Difficult or stressful pregnancy
  2.     Difficult birth
  3.     Prematurity or early medical trauma
