Where millennials go for financial advice

first_imgScarred by the Great Recession and laden with student debt, few millennials are in the mood, or in a position, to seek out a traditional financial adviser. But they need financial advice just the same.Hence the arrival of new and unconventional approaches that try to help 20- and 30-somethings start saving and investing. These range from largely free or inexpensive services offered by financial-services providers—including those the hipsters have tended to shun—to podcasts and blog posts hosted and written by financially savvy young people working hard to win over a generation of skeptics.Twentysomethings are “still going somewhere for the information,” says Stefanie O’Connell, 29, whose blog posts about personal finance from her perspective as a young actress getting by in New York led her to a book-publishing deal earlier this year. Ms. O’Connell has blogged for Northwestern Mutual, Barclaycard and hosted a “Millennials & Money Trivia Night” for Capital One. continue reading » 30SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

FL deputies injured in shootout over Amazon Alexa

Peterson, 62,  got into an argument with his wife and shot at the wife’s Amazon Alexa.Peterson then engaged in a stand-off with authorities by barricading himself in the house for several hours before firing multiple rounds at deputies who entered the home, police say.Around 4:00 a.m. deputies began deploying gas, and sent a SWAT robot in and found Peterson with a wound to his head.Deputies did not confirm if the injury was self-inflicted or due to exchange in gunfire.“This was a battle. This was an absolute gun battle. And the deputies’ heroism was second to none,” Sheriff Chris Nocco said.In addition to the two injured officers, “several sheriff vehicles were struck by gunfire, as well as neighboring homes,” Nocco said.Peterson is facing five counts of attempted homicide and a domestic battery charge.He was psychologically evaluated before taken into custody.last_img read more
