That's according to the authors of "The Millionaire Next Door," who devised a formula to determine whether you're wealthy or at least, as wealthy as you should be. "Prodigious accumulators of wealth" - America's richest people - have a net worth twice their expected level. Wealth is relative. According to Thomas J. Stanley and William D.

Autocracy: Rules for Survival | by Masha Gessen | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books 111016
Masha Gessen: One of the falsehoods in the Clinton speech was the implied equivalency between civil resistance and insurgency. This is an autocrat’s favorite con, the explanation for the violent suppression of peaceful protests the world over.
The second falsehood is the pretense that America is starting from scratch and its president-elect is a tabula rasa. Or we are: “we owe him an open mind.” It was as though Donald Trump had not, in the course of his campaign, promised to deport US citizens, promised to create a system of surveillance targeted specifically at Muslim Americans, promised to build a wall on the border with Mexico, advocated war crimes, endorsed torture, and repeatedly threatened to jail Hillary Clinton herself. It was as though those statements and many more could be written off as so much campaign hyperbole and now that the campaign was over, Trump would be eager to become a regular, rule-abiding politician of the pre-Trump era.

Masha Gessen on the "Impulse to Normalize" | On the Media | WNYC 120616
The journalist Masha Gessen recently wrote a piece called "Autocracy: Rules for Survival" in the New York Review of Books. Rule #1 is: "Believe the Autocrat. He means what he says." But when a leader makes false tatements or contradicts himself, how should he be covered?
Gessen warns that in the Trump era there will be an impulse to normalize, causing coverage and thinking to drift in a Trumpian direction. She saw that drift when she returned to post-Soviet Russia after years of living in the United States, and noticed that even the way certain words were used had become constrained. She talks to Brooke about how the press need to bridge the gap between reporting the facts and telling the truth, and how historical lessons offer a way forward for covering Trump.

Hundreds Of Sea Turtles Are Freezing To Death In Frigid Waters Off The Northeast US |112518
Nearly 200 sea turtles have died off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in the past week, freezing to death in what wildlife rescuers call a once-in-a-lifetime weather event.
The turtles apparently fell victim to the recent cold snap in the northeast, as well as strong winds and the treachery of the Cape’s hook-shaped geography. Jenette Kerr, communications coordinator for Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, told the Cape Cod Times that the "vast majority of them" were "frozen solid."
Many of the turtles were found frozen in slushy ice water, while others were washed up on shore. Kemp’s Ridley turtles, one of the world's most endangered sea turtles, were among them.
Experts say warming ocean temperatures have drawn the turtles further north. However, when the weather snaps to frigid, they can be caught off guard and left essentially defenseless against the elements.
Sea turtle rescues started in earnest in October, but wildlife rescuers say the past week has been the deadliest ever recorded. A 300-pound leatherback turtle that rescuers tried to save was one of the casualties.
