ON THIS DAY...
After a stint of imprisonment, Mary Queen of Scots is forced to abdicate and her 1-year-old son becomes King James VI of Scots. Anyone else beyond excited for the new movie about Elizabeth I and Mary QS coming out this December?! It's directed by Josie Rourke for those theatre lovers out there!
Trial of Dutch exotic dancer Mata Hari begins in Paris for allegedly spying for Germany. This woman deserves an updated bio-pic: child bride, double agent, ultimately betrayed in the end? Perfect movie material! Unless its usurped by Maria Butina...
Apollo 11 returns to Earth...keeping the movie theme alive, catch the trailer for 'First Man' to see The Queen, Claire Foy and 'Hey Girl' Ryan Gosling portray this epic story.
Maybe you're like us and have two accounts from before you got married: 1. Your savings account, trusty, reliable, yours. 2. Your 401k that work excitedly brought you to in the turn of the century. Ever since, you have done...not much. Well, then this video is for you. Let these millenials inspire you to get off your savings account and put that money to work!
This woman literally turned chicken shit into chicken salad! Single mom Stacy Brown once made ends meet by selling tupperware containers of homemade chicken salad...until the health department shut her down. So she traded her trunk for a storefront and Chicken Salad Chick was born! Listen to her tell her story, complete with all her financial savvy, on NPR's podcast How I Built This.
We know you lived it, but you might have missed this extremely entertaining history class on the last financial crisis. We don't blame you if you didn't immediately head to the theatre to watch it (how many finance movies about men can there be??), but we're here to tell you to give it a second thought! With cameos by Brad Pitt (the guy in the up arrow - we know, can you believe it?) and Margot Robbie in bubbles not ice, you'll find yourself more entertained than you'd think!
