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. It twisted in a way that without modern medicine, I would not have survived.

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.

Shares took a hit recently after RDS missed earnings projections.

Best new career booster
