CHEF TIMOTHY Amid back-to-school excitement and the day-to-day rush don't overlook the importance of having a nutritious breakfast. A healthy breakfast provides great benefits for children in their early childhood development. This should be their biggest meal of the day, helping to keep their young minds sharp and alert.
The United Negro College Fund slogan – embedded in the national consciousness over four decades ago – declares that, "The mind is a terrible thing to waste." Well, an undernourished mind leads to a hungry and uncontrollable child.
A healthy breakfast recipe to blend into a child's morning features a simple waffle with some fruit on top and a glass of cold almond milk.

MONEY MATTERS Because of tax changes that take effect in 2013, some upper-income households are facing the prospect of higher tax rates on investment earnings.
The potential for taxes to claim a larger share of investment earnings means that many people might take advantage of opportunities to invest in tax-deferred retirement plans such as 401(k)s and IRAs. Of course, many factors other than taxes should influence investing decisions, including your investment goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance.
The following rate increases explain why you might consider the tax implications of investment decisions.

ON OUR WAY TO WEALTHY Breaking into retail is never easy, which is why Tiffany Greenlee tapped into her creativity and obtained a kiosk in the Wolfchase Galleria to give herself a leg up.
Rather than wait for her candles to be in every retail store, Greenlee decided to create her own retail opportunity and now envisions a chain of kiosks across the region.
Carlee McCullough: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Tiffany Greenlee: I wear many hats! I am a mother of three boys, one of whom has autism. I am a wife, a published author and a nurse by profession. I am an advocate for autism and currently sit on the board of The Autism Lives Foundation. I am a very humble God-fearing woman.
CM: How and when did you begin your career in the candle making industry?

In the grand scheme of music, it's pretty safe to say that the average rapper has the career span of a housefly. That's not very long by the way.
Musical history screams out that anyone looking to get into the game of music in general should have a "Plan B" to fall back on. Those who are looking to get into the rap game should already be involved in their Plan B before they even get started. While some have a Plan B already in effect, others have sort of discovered their back-up plan in the process of carving out a career. And then there are those for whom it takes a little longer to bounce back.
Rapper Coolio has decided to take a different career route these days. He has chosen to auction off of the royalties of his music catalog to fund his new career. He released a cookbook in 2009 called "Cookin' With Coolio" and was featured on the Food Network series "Celebrity Chefs."
