Not maroon, but a light, barely noticeable color is perfectly fine. Frankly, no nail polish at all is worse than clear or sheer pink, but that's my personal opinion as a hiring manager. [ Reply | More ]

Depends on how organized, how much assets, but I would say 2K for each (and each party needs his/her own lawyer). Traditionally, if one party wants the prenup, and the other does not, the one who wants it pays for the attorney of the other one (but the other one must pick and actualy send check to other attorney). Another 500-1000 for a post nup (needed if either/both parties have qualified plans) [ Reply | More ]

Yes. Probably good to get a baseline at 35. I started at 38 because a friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer (no family history) and she convinced me to go. I go every year. [ Reply | More ]

You should talk with your doctor. Unless you have close family with a history of breast cancer, the recommendations are later and less frequently than you suggest. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/12/health/study-adds-new-doubts-about-value-of-mammograms.html?_r=0 [ Reply | More ]

I think it is partly history and partly awful leadership at the SUNYs. The SUNYs do not have a flagship, unlike most state U.

I think Bloomberg did a great job with improving the CUNYs (honors programs, more dorms, etc), but DeB doesnt care about kids at top of academic scale. [ Reply | More ]

I am more worried about my DH/SO working around the clock, never being around, and being miserable which is how many of my friends describe their relationships.

I think she is just assessing what types of guys she would want to date and later possibly marry. I think you are smart to think of this….I could never have a husband who worked 24/7 or whose job comes before the family. I don't care how much money you make. So you have money but yet the worst marriage? What good is that? So you can give the divorce lawyers the money you made when you get divorced ….which has a high probability in these cases. I think you (poster) should just find a really good guy that would be a good husband and Father and not be hung up on the other stuff. [ Reply | More ]

First off, this "stuff" shouldn't be ignored. It's not different from kids all over the world running off to join ISIS. That is: it's a story about racism and angry youth, including the guy who was allowed to die (or killed) in Baltimore. I guess if you lack compassion or understanding there's no hope for you (or us) but sometimes life forces you into situations. You don't even see a way out. There are poor black kids in cities all over this country who aren't even aware the Fifth Avenue (in the city where they live) exists. If we continue to ignore all this stuff, it will no doubt (as it's already beginning to do) bite us in the ass. Then perhaps you too will become a thug. [ Reply | More ]
