Gawker's March Editorial Review Memo: Essentially 'Stop Writing Shitty Headlines.' Also "MOAR SEX CRIMES PLZKTHX" - New York News - Runnin' Scared
The stories that hit the Big Board in the office are usually pretty
well packaged; but there are still so many that could make it and
don't because the headline is too bloggy, too insidery, too clever,
too complicated or too opaque.

It's tragic: a few minutes of thought about the headline and a bit of
maturity could save that story you just sweated over.

5 Ways to Start Investing with $1,000 or Less | MintLife Blog | Personal Finance News & Advice

TreasuryDirect is your gateway to owning U.S. Treasuries. If you are looking for a conservative way to invest your $1,000, this is it. Plus, since your tax dollars fund the Treasury, you don’t have to pay any commissions or fees to buy or hold Treasuries.

Two of the most popular products individuals buy directly from the U.S. Treasury are I Savings Bonds and Treasury Inflation Protection Securities (TIPS), because both investments protect you from inflation.

You can buy I Savings Bonds in increments as low as $25, and you can buy TIPS in increments of $100. But don’t get carried away. Treasuries–especially those that protect against inflation–may be the safest way to invest, but their returns are typically lower than those you will find long-term in the stock market. So you probably only want a portion of your portfolio tied up in Treasuries.
