hechingerreport.org — "Reinvent."

How millennials can play salary catch-up

fortune.com — Now that millennials have started to land jobs after being thrown into labor market purgatory due to the economic crisis, it's time for them to play salary catch-up. And fast.

I Almost Died A Year Ago Today. What Should I Do About It?

ryanderousseau.com — A year ago today, I nearly died. I don't mean I had one of those near-death experiences where a truck almost hit me or a falling piano almost crushed my unsuspecting self as I walked below. No. I mean my body gave out.

McDonald's seeks to supersize its growth

money.cnn.com — McDonald's is struggling to add new menu items that sell well enough to boost same-store sales. The Golden Arches haven't shone for investors lately. Over the past 12 months, McDonald's stock has returned less than 3%. That compares with an average 21% return for restaurant stocks.

Top stock picks from top pros

money.cnn.com — The Hague-based energy conglomerate explores for, extracts, and refines oil, and Shell stations retail gasoline.
