1.) It’s always better at the top – particularly if you’re the CEO. According to the latest Executive Paywatch report, CEOs earn 345 times what the average worker takes home. The AFL-CIO has taken the reported compensation for CEOs from 327 companies in the S&P 500 and compared them to the average employee pay for 2012. The average worker makes less than $35,000 a year while the average CEO takes home more than $12.25 million.
2.) One of the best things about eating sugary cereal is the milk left at the bottom of the bowl. Now, a company is selling milk that tastes exactly like that. “Cow Wow’s” cereal milk is getting ready to roll out nationwide. Their first two flavors will taste like the milk leftover after a bowl of Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles. Look for new flavors designed to taste like Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch before the end of the year. The milk comes in eight-and-a-half-ounce packages, and they have about 175 calories each.
3.) If you’re a smoker, selling your house is more difficult. According to a survey of real-estate agents by Pfizer, 56% of agents said that buyers are less likely to buy a house if the previous owners smoked in it . . . and 27% said that most of their buyers REFUSE to consider a house where someone smoked. Plus, even if you’re able to sell your house, the smoke smell will drive down the price. One in three agents say that a smoker’s house will sell for 10% to 19% less. Another one in three thinks smoking lowers the price by 20% to 29%.
