Imagine Nashville in 2040; Now Help Shape It

Imagine Nashville in 2040; Now Help Shape It

 by Pam Coyle
Imagine greater Nashville with 1 million more people. Imagine our metro area is the size of Denver’s.

Now imagine what Nashville could be like in 25 years if we don’t creatively plan for such growth. By 2040, the region will absorb 1 million more people, the ratio of “traditional” families will change, Millennials will dominate the workforce and Middle Tennessee will be even more diverse.

NashvilleNext is a broad effort to involve the community – as in real people who live and work here – in creating a vision for the city’s future. An event at 10 a.m. Saturday at [...] Read More

Facebook Fraud: how social media is making you vulnerable.

Facebook Fraud: how social media is making you vulnerable.

by Pam Coyle

When I set up my Facebook profile four or five years ago I did not fill in the fields for birthday. Vanity was my initial defense. Most of my life I’ve been told I looked younger than my years and I wanted to keep folks guessing.

I ignore requests for my birthday from well-meaning Facebook friends. Yes, I could simply disclose the month and day and skip the year. Still, I resist.

Turns out I may have preserved more than the illusion of youth. I may have unwittingly erected a defense against identity theft.

Budgeting: A Necessary Evil

Budgeting: A Necessary Evil

By Ellen Margulies

The last couple of years have been interesting, career-wise and financially speaking. I went from a well-paying career I loved to a low-paying job I struggled with to a temp job I was lucky to get that covered about two-thirds of my bills. All of this was interspersed with months of virtually no income at all. (Unemployment, if you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to need it, is woefully inadequate. The government formula seems to be: your old salary multiplied by number of months it will take you to find work divided by screw you, we’re going to give [...] Read More

Healthy Holidays to all!

Healthy Holidays to all!

By Ellen Margulies

This is how the song should really go: On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: 12 sausage and cheese balls, 11 mini-quiches, 10 holiday cocktails, 9 nutty-cheese dips, 8 Christmas cookies, 7-layer dip, 6 pigs in blankets, 5 kinds of fuuuudge… 4 homemade turtles, 3 egg nogs, 2 candy canes and a fruitcake that I didn’t even want.

Because at this time of year, the parties are killer. And let’s face it: In Middle Tennessee, we aren’t going to be skiing or ice-skating those calories off. For some of us, keeping up a semblance [...] Read More

Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas

by Ellen Margulies

Days get darker, shorter. It’s rainy and cold. All around you are beautiful reds and greens, but all you feel is blue. If Judy Garland’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” plays on the radio, you’ll go right over the edge.
Being depressed sucks any time of year, but it seems to carry an extra sting at Christmas. The holidays are full of light and joy for so many, so when something is lacking in your own life, the contrast is all the more remarkable. I’ve always loved Christmas, but I’ve experienced a few that were more maudlin than [...] Read More
