Ten years ago, the idea of downloading apps was brand new. Now making those apps is the most lucrative thing you can do with your time.
CNN/Money just released their annual list of the best jobs in America for 2017, and the number one career right now is mobile app developer.
The average app developer makes $97,000 a year . . . there are a ton of open jobs for you to snatch up . . . it’s low stress . . . and you can usually work from home.
The top five jobs right now are:
- Mobile app developer.
- Risk management director . . . they help make plans for either communities or companies in case a disaster happens, and also run the clean up and rebuilding if it does.
- Landman . . . that’s someone who makes deals between oil companies and people who own the land that has natural resources under it.
- Product analyst . . . that’s someone who studies products and figures out how to improve them.
- Info assurance analyst . . . they figure out ways to protect companies’ data and network.
(Here are all 100 jobs on the list.)
The way things are in the world right now, it might not be such a good idea to make a music video that looks like it’s set in a city that just got BOMBED. Especially if it’s gonna be a BOOTY-SHAKING video.
But that’s kind of what FIFTH HARMONY did with their video for “That’s My Girl”. It takes place in a city where SOMETHING just happened. They don’t tell us WHAT, but it could easily be a war-torn area like Aleppo. (Or, as Gary Johnson calls it . . . What?!)
The ladies show up to help, but they also DANCE. In fact, they mostly dance. If they were going for some kind of fantastical, Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic thing, they failed. There’s nothing here to indicate it’s not 2016.
The clothing, the bombed out cars, the ruined city . . . they’re all very much of the present. The girls even have a not-remotely-futuristic Jeep.
It’s just weird . . . and an odd choice, given that there are a lot of cities in the world that look like this right now.
Here are some random facts for you . . .
1. Purple Skittles aren’t grape in other countries. In England and Australia they’re black currant.
2. It’s illegal to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower at night. And France actually catches people when they post them on social media.
3. A Hungarian fencer named Pal Szekeres won a bronze medal at the 1988 Olympics. Then he became disabled after a bus accident, and went on to win six medals in wheelchair fencing at the Paralympics.
That makes him the only person who’s won medals at the Olympics before a disability, then at the Paralympics when he was disabled.
4. The average person passes gas 14 times a day.
5. Mary Shelley got the idea for “Frankenstein” from a nightmare.
Costume Trends This Halloween
Now that it’s October, you’re probably already planning your Halloween costume.
Just kidding . . . you’ll be scrambling to buy something crappy and over-priced at a crowded Halloween store at 6:00 P.M. on the night of Halloween, just like the rest of us.
But if you DO feel like getting a jump on things, here are the two big costume trends this year. It’s according to Pinterest though, so take that for what it’s worth.
- Group costumes. Instead of everyone doing their own thing, you pick an idea for a bunch of people, and everyone sticks to the theme.
It can be anything . . . Mario Kart, “The Walking Dead”, the Kardashians . . . whatever.
- Throwback pop culture costumes. And the ’90s are hot . . . Pinterest says ’90s costumes are 500% more popular than they were last year.
Think boy bands, “Scream”,the Spice Girls, “Clueless”, “Ace Ventura” . . . you get it.
Tuna salad sandwich
This is the easiest $25 you’ll ever make.
There was a class-action lawsuit filed against Starkist Tuna about two-and-a-half years ago, claiming they were intentionally under-filling their cans by a few tenths of an ounce.
And they just settled the lawsuit. Even though they didn’t officially admit to anything, they’re PAYING UP.
If you bought at least one five-ounce can of Starkist tuna between February 19th, 2009 and October 31st of last year, you’re eligible for $25 . . . or $50 in tuna.
Now, odds are you don’t have any grocery store receipts to prove you bought the tuna. But that’s fine. You just have to SAY you did. Although if you lie, you could be facing perjury charges . . . but we have no idea how they’ll prove it.
