17. Are You Begging or Fundraising? -

Fundraising is a noble profession. As a fundraiser you meet some of the best people around. You provide people with information and opportunities that allow them to pursue things that are important to them: “things” that really can’t be bought.

It’s maybe more impressive that in going 11-0, 7-0 in the SEC, the Crimson Tide has given up just 12 touchdowns. And more impressive still that only six of those TDs have been scored by teams other than Texas A&M with someone at quarterback not named Johnny Manziel.

32. Talk to Your Parents About Their Future -

Ray’s Take It’s a conversation no one wants to have; however, it’s important to have at least an idea of how financially prepared your parents are for their retirement. People are living longer – much longer – and the costs for senior care are soaring. Many older Americans saw a large portion of their nest egg disappear in the last recession.

33. Top Twitter Turnoffs -

Twitter users often make a split-second decision whether to follow you, which means you have to make a positive first impression to gain new followers.

While some prospective followers may click to see your full profile, the lion’s share make their determination based solely on your summary screen – your personal avatar, the background image you’ve selected, your bio, your location, the Web address you choose to promote and your stats. Featured stats include the number of tweets you’ve made since creating the profile, the number of Twitter users you’re following, and the number following you. Since this is all most users will ever see about you before deciding whether you’re “follow-worthy,” make each element count and be sure to avoid these top Twitter turnoffs.

Ray’s Take: There’s only two ways to earn money honestly. One is by working and the other is by investing so your assets work to make money for you.

53. Explore Alternatives to Banks -

Ray’s Take In decades past you built a relationship with your bank and, more importantly, your banker. After so many mergers, that’s become harder to do.

57. We All Have a Right to Rights -

BENDING EVERYBODY STRAIGHT. I know a guy who’s into shoes. And into colors, theater and rearranging furniture. He majored in art, and can spend hours hanging one piece in the only two square feet of wall space he has left– robin’s egg blue and Chinese red walls, I might add. He wrote and directed musical satire in college. Johnny Mathis is all over his iPhone, iPad and iPod along with Judy Collins singing “Danny Boy” and way too many original Broadway casts singing their showstoppers, all of which he incessantly hums. He makes tomato aspic. He wears a lot of purple and pink, liberally sprinkles words like fabulous and spectacular in general conversation, has a couple of precious matching dogs, and has the legs for cross dressing. He’s a lifelong Memphian, but he doesn’t hunt or fish.

58. Recovery Tied to Nation’s Business Cycle -

Another jobs bill was recently filibustered in the Senate, lacking just two votes for passage. Without direct stimulus emanating from a deadlocked Congress, the Federal Reserve announced one more quantitative easing program, designed to provide liquidity for more bank lending that would hopefully lead to more investments in small and medium-sized businesses. Banks and corporations, for that matter, have ample cash on their respective balance sheets for investment in the domestic market, but both are waiting for a signal that consumer demand is on the rise.

59. Volunteer Spirit -

Next month, a group from Emory University in Atlanta is coming to the Memphis Botanic Garden to participate in an “alternative fall break.”

60. A Tasteful List 2012 -

63. Eggs And Elmo Take Me Back -

PERFECT REMINDERS. I’m reminded. He stared at the target, and on this particular night it seemed larger than ever. He got his signal – same as before – bring the heat. As soon as he let it go, he knew that’s the best I got. Nobody’s touching it.

76. Start Living on One Income -

Ray’s Take: Some of the best advice I can give engaged couples is to live on one income right from the start, because you never know when you might be forced to do so. If you’re already married, it’s still a good idea – for the same reason. Plus, it enables you to really save for the future and the unexpected.

77. McDonald's Drops Egg Supplier Over Cruelty Charges -

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – McDonald's Corp. said Friday it has dropped a Minnesota-based egg supplier after an animal rights group released an undercover video of operations at the egg producer's farms in three states.

78. Tigers Ace First Test, Take Talents to Maui -

Every season has a first game. But this was not a perfunctory tip to an ordinary season. This one felt different, felt like the first act of a play that could have the ultimate, dramatic, ending.

Months from now, no one will remember all the particulars from the University of Memphis’ 97-81 victory over Belmont on Tuesday, Nov. 15. People will forget that Will Barton, Wesley Witherspoon and Joe Jackson all went for at least 20 points, that the game started at 11 a.m. on a Tuesday (to accommodate ESPN) and that outside FedExForum it was a gray, rainy day.

79. Symposium Set For Miss. 'Personhood' Initiative -

82. US Gets Chance to Catch Up on Credit Card Security -

NEW YORK (AP) – The next time you swipe your credit card at check-out, consider this: It's a ritual the rest of the world deems outdated and unsafe.

The United States is the only developed country still hanging on to credit and debit cards with those black magnetic stripes, the kind you swipe through retail terminals. The rest of the industrialized world has switched –or is in the process of switching– to "smart" chip-based cards.

83. Venture Off Kid’s Menu Every Once in a While -

So, you’re in the restaurant, the family and the kids. Everybody is behaving well, speaking in “inside voices,” including the adults. So far, so good, but the point is, what is everybody going to eat? The kids take one peek at the menu and look as if they’re beginning to tune up: “Mom, Dad, we hate tilapia with Southwestern succotash and mango-jicama relish!” Mom says, hopefully, “Look, Dick, look, Jane, there’s a kid’s menu! You love kid’s menus!” Signaling the helpful waiter for another martini.

88. Think Before Buying Home -

Ray’s Take: Home ownership is a bedrock of American culture with many benefits, but being a good investment is not necessarily one of them. Does that shock you? Maybe not as much now as it would have three years ago. However, it was just as true then as it is today.
