Neil Cavuto talks about balancing parenting and work in the Star-Ledger.
I haven’t met a mother or father who hasn’t wrestled with this issue of balancing home and work. Even the most hard-charging executive – male or female – doesn’t wince at missing a child’s game or recital. I’ve missed more than a few such events over the years with my daughter and sons. That’s why I make doubly sure to call and check how that game went. I’ve also discovered technology can be a wonderful thing. Between Skype and Apple Face Time, I always can connect with the family while on the road or on assignment.

Still, I also think kids are as perceptive as adults. When they see you’re making the effort, they see you’re still trying to make a difference.
Jo Ling Kent gave tips to Investopedia on the Greece debt crisis and shares four things that everyone should know.

Citizens cannot transfer money abroad or pay bills using debit cards. According to the Wall street Journal, Greece’s banking system has about 1 billion euros in cash left as of Wednesday. Unless the situation changes, the country will probably run out of cash in just a matter of days.

This is an opportunity for the world to see that it can be done — and not just to make money, but to also ensure that we are living in a sustainable world.
