1.) Even the Transportation Security Administration admits s that airport screening lines can be long and frustrating. So, if you have a better idea, they want to hear it.

2.) If you want to keep more of your money, stop wasting it on name brands and buy generic drugs. A new study done, in part, at the University of Chicago, found that 9 times out of 10, doctors buy generic aspirin over the brand-names. For xxample: A bottle of 100-tablet Bayer brand aspirin costs $6.29 on CVS.com. The CVS store brand costs $2.27 for the same dosage, ingredients and active ingredient. It’s the same product at half the cost. The study found Americans waste $44 billion a year on name brands when store brands cost half the price. The average household buys brand name products 26% of the time. Pharmacists buy brands only 9% of the time.
