How much money you need to save each day to become a millionaire by age 65

If you want to get rich, start investing — and start as early as you possibly can.

To illustrate the simplicity of building wealth over time, an expert laid out a chart that details how much money you need to set aside each day, month, or year in order to have $1 million saved by the time you’re 65.

The chart assumes you’re starting with zero dollars invested. It also assumes a 12% annual return.

The simplest starting point is to invest in your employer’s 401(k) plan. Next, he says, consider contributing money toward a Roth IRA or traditional IRA.

How to Scare a Man Away

Relationship experts, Laura Yates and Genevieve Zawada, say you could be scaring away your male love interests with 12 simple mistakes you’re making.

Here’s the list:

1-Not having friends. Men are attracted to women who have an active social life. Having friends implies that people want to spend time with you.

2- Being irrationally jealous. This shows buried insecurities and diminishes attraction. Men are attracted to women who have a sense of inner confidence and security.

3- Texting too much. If you’re constantly texting a man, it conveys a sense of neediness and that you have a lot of time on your hands.

4- Baby talk. It’s not cute or endearing. It comes across as needy and immature.

5- Being possessive. Allow a man to also be free to keep doing all the things he loves.

6- Talk badly of other women. This also conveys insecurity. If you’re bringing down something about other women, it can suggests you’re hard work and lack confidence.

7- Being a drama queen. Creating drama for no real reason can suggest that you’re high maintenance.

8- Pushing for too much commitment too soon. While it’s good to know where a relationship is going, it’s also wise to let it evolve naturally and not put pressure on a man to commit.

9- Oversharing. Part of building connection is being about to trust your partner with the more private things about you, but you should avoid getting into all of this too soon.

10- Calling the shots. Little Miss Bossy is not a good look when it comes to dating either, remember they have survived this long without you micro-managing them.

11- Expecting the man to pay for everything. If this has not been agreed beforehand and even expecting him to get you home can scare a man off.

12- Not having any outside interests. Men are attracted to interesting women with passions, hobbies and things to talk about. You can only have these things if you engage in activities and interests outside of the relationship.

PINE TAR BAT DAY

1983

Kansas City Royals’ George Brett slammed a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Royals a 5-4 lead over the New York Yankees!

New York Yankees Manager Billy Martin complained there was too much pine tar on the bat used by Brett. The distance limit for pine tar on a bat handle is 18 inches. The umpires measured the bat, using home plate as a measuring stick, and they decided that Brett did have too much pine tar…so they called him out! 

The president of the American League, Lee McPhail, later reversed the umpires’ decision on the pine tar incident and ruled that the game was suspended — with the Royals leading, 5-4.

The game was completed 3 1/2 weeks later, on August 18, with the Royals winning 5-4.

The bat is now in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown
