Jennifer Lopez Turns 43! (PHOTOS)

“the woman is talented (sure up for opinion but not the point) and successful, but really - most of the things listed are not a job. An appearance here and there for a magazine cover or Home Shopping Network, dressing well, making a guest appearance on a show... I'm more impressed by the everyday single mom with a full time job, kids, and an evening waitressing job to make ends meet than J-Lo being busy.”

“It says he started a company - it doesn't say he actually dug in the dirt. There's a good chance he started the company (helped by his 6 figure income for the start up capital) and outsourced the manual work to cheap labor. I'm not impressed w/out further details.”

“Most people who start up business put in a lot of hard work and sweat in the beginning, on their own. When you are able to hire others, you still have to be there to troubleshoot and manage things. No one will look after your own business as well as you do. When my spouse and I began our own business, we put in 16-18 hours a day, 7 days a week, and didn't draw a salary out of it for the first 8 months. We also watched expenses carefully, and took no vacation that year, not even a mini-weekend. It eventually paid off, but not without a lot of self-sacrifice. I still commend this man.”

“Not very impressive on a 6 figure salary. It's actually shameful that he was making minimum payments on the loan while living lavishly. Does Harvard not teach personal finance? I read about a couple who make $35K a year and they paid off $30K in debt in just over 2 years. Now that is impressive. Making somewhere over $100K and paying off 90 in 10 months (while selling large ticket items) is not very impressive. If he makes $150K or more a year he still lives better than most of the population while paying off his entire loan quickly. It's really not a challenge to be single and live on $50K.”

“how is the store supposed to stay in business with people buying towels for $0.65? What RIGHT is being able to coupon to the detriment of the store? The mentality that you should receive a (WAY) below cost deal but still have the luxury of having a nearby, clean / organized, climate-controlled retail store sporting the latest items around to shop at, staff to help you find things or answer questions, and a cashier to back up your purchase, is rather absurd. So many couponers can't see the difference between getting a fair deal and ripping someone off. If they charge $4 for towels and make a profit that's a rip off you say, but if you make them LOSE money by stealing the towels for 65 cents that's just good business?”

“How is this racist? Wait, is anything that refers to a person's color or place of origin automatically racist? Doesn't matter if it's derogatory or not? Apparently.”

“You did read the article saying that the woman lost her husband and daughter a year ago. Love their dog or not with everything on their plate it probably was not top of their mind to call the microchip company.”
Diet Sabotage: Nearly 1 In 5 Calorie Counts Wrong

Diet Sabotage: Nearly 1 In 5 Calorie Counts Wrong

Commented Jul 20, 2011 at 13:15:51 in Healthy Living

“It's not a matter of the restaurant lying - it's that the calorie counts are for the regulated specific way to prepare the foods and that's not always done in real life in the restaurant kitchen. The cheese may not be weighed out but instead the server threw a handful on your salad - twice as much as "should" be on there per the calorie count. Perhaps the cook uses a TON of butter or oil on the grill instead of the tablespoon that is accounted for in the official preparation calorie count. There are a lot of factors. I do count calories (I'm a numbers person, I like it. I'm also only on the high end of healthy for my weight. It just helps keep me in check.) and on days I eat out (definitely not 3 days a week) I assume that I am eating more calories than my counts say I am and I also try to get in a super good workout that day to make up for it.”

“I think the dad should have taken the kid out if it was being loud or disruptive (though the kid can be there if there are no age limits on the ticket and it's behaving), but i have to say - if that kid in the video is the one they are referring to, why is no one calling out the sensationalism of the writer for calling that kid an infant? Since when has a somewhere in the range of 1 yr old from looking at the video - considered an infant? Or even a baby at that point!? Writer is using buzz words to sensationalize.”
