[ - ] i live in brooklyn and was just invited to a Rodan+Fields party at the house of one of my child's clasmates. I thought this was a big thing in the suburbs. What's the deal with it? Why are so many people signing up? Do they really make good money? This woman is well-employed. Her friends are replying "cant wait!!!". Can you UBers break it down. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Ugh. Her "friends" are fellow sellers who hype it up as part of marketing. I have had 2 friends get involved. One quit after 6 months because she couldn't stomach the extent to which she was supposed to exploit her friendships. The other still does it, and has for over a year, but I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe there is any real money to be made. These people are shameless [ Reply | More ]

"Trump needs the Russian cash, Marshall reported — citing a Bloomberg News story — because his debt load has nearly doubled in the past year alone and now stands at a whopping $650 million. At the same time Trump’s “liquid” assets — that is, available cash — dropped from $225 million to $170 million. “Trump has been blackballed by all major US banks,” Marshall wrote. “Post-bankruptcy Trump has been highly reliant on money from Russia, most of which has over the years become increasingly concentrated among oligarchs and sub-garchs close to Vladimir Putin.” [ Reply | More ]

"In 2013, after Vladimir Putin published an anti-American op-ed column in The New York Times, Trump hailed the essay as “a masterpiece.” Trump also denies that a Putin has ordered political rivals and critics assassinated, though most experts agree that there is plenty of evidence to support the accusation. If indeed Putin had his rivals killed, Trump seemed to give the Russian leader a pass, saying, “at least he’s a leader.” [ Reply | More ]
