  • 24 successful people who wake up really (really) early

    Published: Mon, Jul 6, 2015

    They say the early bird catches the worm, and research suggests there might be some truth to the old adage.   Waking up with (or before) the sun allows executives like AOL's Tim Armstrong and Pepsi's Indra Nooyi to get a head start on the day, knocking out tasks before the rest of the world has rolled out of bed.   Those "extra" hours also give them a chance to do some creative thinking, fit in a workout, and spend time with family.

But wait a few days to check your 401(k), and it's likely it will make the losses back. U.S. stocks slid last week once it became clear that Greece would miss a big debt payment to the IMF. It was its worst drop of the year, and it could happen again. But here's why the pain may be limited. First, Greece is small. The country makes up 0.3% of the global economy, and most investors began avoiding the country after it first threatened to default on its debt about five years ago. Second, Greece owes its money to big institutions, not private banks. Private-sector exposure to Greek debt is much smaller than it was the last time Greece neared default, and analysts say that healthier European banks should help stabilize markets -- regardless of Greece's fate in the eurozone.

  • Obama disappears, abandons press corps | WashingtonExaminer.com

    Published: Sun, Jul 5, 2015

    President Obama disappeared abruptly without the press pool after spending Sunday golfing at Andrews Air Force Base. He took former Hawaii school mate Mike Ramos, pal Marty Nesbitt, the co-CEO of the Vistria group, ESPN's Mike Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser with him to the links for approximately six hours of golfing, before abruptly taking off without the waiting press pool. Obama left Andrews AFB at 2:48 p.m. and according to a White House official, returned to the White House at 3:04 p.m. The press pool exists so that news organizations can pool resources and send reporters to events where large number of journalists may not attend. An assigned reporter follows the president and sends out a pool report to the member news organizations. No word on why Obama left without the press. The White House has deferred questions to the Secret Service.
