As a kid, Austin Netzley remembered being enthralled with the concept of money and promising himself that one day he'd be wealthy. And now, at 28, by most people's measure, he is. He's been an athlete, student, engineer and entrepreneur. And at this point in his life, he considers himself "retired."
If Styles ends up being straight, the implications of his recent statements would be practically revolutionary. At his age, following the "bro" code typically means acting as straight and narrow as possible. How many straight guys are comfortable with being mistaken for gay or bisexual?
Feminism has become the word du jour. But what's its message? Its goals? Why is it so divisive?
The human mind doesn't always work in our best interests when it comes to spending decisions. But the good news is that scientists are trying to tackle the problem -- and uncover how we can retrain our brains to make better choices.
A recent Cosby audience love fest was not simply an aberration of groupie fan mania. Legions passionately believe Cosby is being wrongly crucified on the cross of raw public opinion by a pack of greedy, publicity-seeking, career-wrecking liars and schemers.
TS Madison has become really popular over the past year. She is a YouTube sensation who recently got her own show on YouTube via World of Wonder. Madison just dropped her first album, so I thought it would be a perfect time for her to be asked "15 Questions."
Black, Asian and Latina women combined barely make up 1 percent of the total number of persons in top positions. White women comprise 14 percent.
In May 2004, comedian, social critic and philanthropist Bill Cosby took the stage at Constitution Hall in his hometown of Philadelphia. It was a gala commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Brown decision on school segregation.
In declaring a state of emergency in Missouri before any actual announcement by the Ferguson grand jury, Gov. Jay Nixon is shedding a valuable light on what happens when a culture of fearful white supremacy can't tolerate dissent, disorder, or difference.
Our daughters will learn from us how to value themselves. Whether we like it or not, we are responsible for what they are exposed to and what they hold up as values while they are young.
Keeping control of overall debt is an important part of financial planning no matter what your stage of life. But a flat statement about eliminating all debt in retirement may be too simplistic. That's because the amount of debt you can comfortably handle is very individual and depends on your bigger financial picture.
My heart belongs to the ladies on 14th Street who stood with me night after night, trying to survive and just be their authentic selves. I cry today for those ladies who are no longer here with us in 2014, but my heart remembers them.
Whether or not Darren Wilson is indicted for his behavior in those 90 seconds, American society as a whole bears indictment for those four hours and thirty-two minutes. That level of disregard for black life cannot be attributed to the actions of one police officer.
The focus of our strategy should not be on what we do or do not do with our military. The principal focus of our "fight" should be on getting the countries in the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Bahrain, etc., to make the defeat of ISIS their responsibility.
As we honor our friends and family we have lost to anti-transgender violence on Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), how can we ensure that transgender women of color are leading the LGBTQ anti-violence movement?
For the second time in two months, Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri approved the execution of an African American man sentenced to die by an all-white jury. But Missouri and this governor have absolutely no moral authority to execute anyone.
Since last fall's tragic death of her fiancé A.J. Jewell, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kandi Burruss has been taking her time before getting involved with a new significant other.
But, on the season premiere of 'Housewives' viewers get an inside look at the new man in her life.
Willis McGahee is a running back for the Baltimore Ravens. Though the 28 year-old is no longer the NFL team's starting running back, last year he ended the season with his best career statistics, including second most touchdowns in the league with 14.
But, in addition to balancing his hectic professional football career, McGahee is working hard at winning over the 34-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter on the new season of the top-rated Bravo reality series.
In the first episode of the new season of 'Housewives,' Burruss reveals to her cast mate Kim Zolciak that the Miami native flew to Atlanta to meet her. The couple is later seen rock climbing in another scene of the season three premiere.
She admitted that the Pro Bowler and Heisman Trophy finalist was "good looking, a cool guy, and fun," but she expressed her doubt in any serious relationship with McGahee saying "he is in the NFL and athletes are used to girls flocking to them and I'm used to guys flocking to me. Plus, I don't like long distance relationships."
McGahee is slated to earn over $40 million through his seven-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, but with more money comes more problems.
Off the field, the University of Miami graduate has had a lot of drama with several child support cases. He has three children with three different women. And, is rumored to currently have a live-in girlfriend and another newborn child.
In 2005, two school teachers filed paternity suits against him claiming he fathered their boys. Keisha Walls gave birth to a boy, Kai Walls on April 19, 2006 and Chiniqua Smith gave birth to a boy, Willis McGahee IV, on Jan.6, 2006. The third woman, Dorothy Doretha McNeil previously sued McGahee in 2005 saying he fathered her daughter, Bria McGahee, born Jan. 17, 2005.
He was ruled the biological father – and has since paid child support – for McNeil's daughter and Smith's son. But, it is still unclear whether he is the father of Walls' child. Oddly enough she was married when she hooked up with McGahee, who she says she's been seeing on and off since 2003. It has not been publicly confirmed if McGahee is the father in the third case.
Still, McGahee and Burruss seem to be open to the idea of taking things further even though she proclaimed their current relationship is "nothing too serious."
Cameras show the two on their date discussing the idea of having sex. The Atlanta native tells McGahee that she made a bet with a friend that she could be celibate for one year. To which, he asks "Is oral sex eliminated?" and she said, "No." And he replied, "That's cool" with a sly smile.
Burruss vows to taker her time getting to know the next man who she likes before taking it one step further and having sex.
