According to the most recent salary survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the average starting salary for a Class of 2012 graduate is $44,442 – not too shabby. In fact, it’s up about 4 percent from last year!
Of course, starting salary varies by major, and it probably comes as no surprise that business majors are making more than education majors (not that it necessarily should be!). Here’s a list of the highest-paying bachelor’s degrees by academic…Read full post

Protein is an important part of a healthy diet, and meat is one of the best sources of the muscle-building nutrient! But as you are probably fully aware, meat can be expensive, especially when you’re feeding a family. Luckily, you don’t have to eat meat to get your protein in; in fact, Americans seem to be catching on: According to the USDA, Americans are eating less meat on average (from 184 pounds per person in 2004 to 166 pounds…Read full post
