The “Spaving” Trap: How 58% of Americans Wastefully Spend to Save

Americans’ lives have changed drastically this year, and so have their financial habits. As a result of widespread economic instability, it’s been reported that 64% of Americans claimed their spending choices would be permanently changed in the wake of COVID-19. Even if nationwide concern about saving is on the rise, it’s important for consumers to keep an eye out for common traps like “spaving” when they do go shopping.

Spaving is a term used to describe when people end up spending more money in an effort to maximize their savings.

Most advertisers are guilty of encouraging spaving, especially during the holiday season.

To find out who admits to spaving and to pinpoint how this tricky spending habit creeps into our budgets, we surveyed … Read the rest

White Utah Police Officer Charged With Felony Assault After Ordering Police Dog to Attack Black Man Who Had His Hands Up

Earlier this year in Utah, on April 24, as a Black man was being arrested with his hands raised as commanded by a white police officer, the officer ordered his K-9 dog to attack and bite the man. That white police officer has been charged with second-degree felony assault for his actions prosecutors announced earlier this week, according to USA Today.

The Salt Lake City District Attorney’s office has charged Salt Lake City officer Nickolas Pearce with aggravated assault stemming from the April 24 incident in which the police officer was responding to a domestic dispute call when he ordered his dog to bite Jeffery Ryans.

In August, bodycam footage of the video was released of the April incident that shows Ryans in his backyard as Pearce approaches with his dog.

“Get on the ground!” Pearce says. “Get on the ground or you’re gonna get bit.”

Months of quarantine have disrupted all of our wellness routines. As gyms faced closures and everyone was forced to remain in their homes to protect , many people found that their holistic health took a bit of a back seat. N​ot only did people’s workouts suffer, but many of us turned to comfort food, alcohol and other less-than-stellar choices in lieu of not having much to do. Restaurants switched to takeout-only services, and a lot of us found we were indulging more often than usual. Fortunately, our health and fitness routines are salvageable. 

To that end, I recently spoke with two wellness experts — renowned yoga instructor Brett Larkin

For business owners, understanding business vs. personal credit cards is key. It isn’t just a matter of using one credit card for your personal life and another for your business expenses. These are two different products that can have major economic and legal implications for your business.
