    2. So You're About to Retire. Now What?

      So You're About to Retire. Now What?

      If you're getting close to retirement, now is a good time to evaluate your situation and figure out how much income you may need after retirement. Check your accounts regularly, and see if you might need to boost your contributions in order to catch up.

      A good rule of thumb is that you'll need about 80% of your pre-retirement income in order to maintain your quality of life after you retire. So, if your final salary from your job is $100,000, plan on needing about $80,000 in income during your first year as a retiree. Then figure out where that money will come from.

    3. Drinking lead: Why California schools may be forced to test water

      Drinking lead: Why California schools may be forced to test water

      When a therapy dog refused to drink at a San Diego grade school, it was the first clue that something was wrong with the water.

      Tests revealed why the pup turned up its nose — the presence of polyvinyl chloride, the polymer in PVC pipes that degrade over time. But further analysis found something else that had gone undetected by the dog, the teachers and students of the San Diego Cooperative Charter School, and the school district: elevated levels of lead.

      What Happens If You Don't Pay Your Student Loans?

      During the 2016-17 school year, the average student at a public four-year institution can expect to pay $3,770 in tuition and fees, according to The College Board's annual Trends in Pricing report . Facing those kinds of expenses, most students are clearly going to need financial aid to pay for higher education. And as a result, former students are likely to face dauntingly high amounts of student loan debt.

      Social Security's Maximum Benefit: Is There Any Way You'll Get It?

      Most retirees need as much income from Social Security as they can get. That's what makes Social Security's maximum benefit so appealing: The prospect of getting the largest possible monthly benefit check from Social Security seems like an obvious solution to retirees' financial worries. Unfortunately, getting the maximum amount that Social Security will pay takes a lot of effort, and almost no one will be able to hit that theoretical maximum amount.

    6. A week after British vote, markets take stock

      By GREG KELLER AP Business Writer NEW YORK (AP) - A week after Britain's shocking vote to leave the European Union, markets seem to have pushed the pause button. After a two-day spree of near panic selling that wiped out an unprecedented $3 trillion from global markets, investors, analysts and pundits in the U.S. and abroad spent the week following the vote collectively revising their knee-jerk reactions to what has become known as the "Brexit" vote.

      Happiness With Life 9: Making Friends With Death

      Maybe I've simply reached that time of life, but it seems that, all of a sudden, people I intimately know are getting sick and dying. Less than six months ago, my best buddy in college died after a long battle with bladder cancer. Soon thereafter, the wife of a dear friend passed away from complications from an organ transplant. Then, to legitimize the aphorism that bad news comes in threes, another close friend’s wife recently died of a heart attack. What did I do with all this bad news?

      Five passengers (and one skipper and one first mate) set sail that day for a three-hour tour, but where are they now?

      With the passing of 'Professor' Russell Johnson Thursday, there are now two living cast members remaining of Gilligan's Island's original crew of seven — 75-year-old Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann Summers, and 79-year-old Tina Louise, who played Ginger Grant.

      Report To Congress: IRS Is Increasingly Unable To Meet Taxpayer Needs

      When Congress threatened "right-sized" budget cuts for the Internal Revenue Service last July, it was a clear swipe at the agency which had been under fire following a number of scandals.

      Cindy Murray and Robert Williamson share the same father, but lost touch in the late 1970s, when they moved about 20 miles apart; Williamson was just 6, Murray eight years older, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

      Murray, 51, went on to spend years searching for her little brother and only sibling, but unlike other such similar stories, Facebook, and the Internet in general, proved to be of little help.

      Valerie Harper 'close to remission'

      In a Today show segment this morning, the star was shown receiving very optimistic and good news regarding her brain cancer. She said in March that "three months" was her life expectancy.

      But based on her latest MRI in June, Harper, 74, is beating back the cancer for now. "I'd say that we're getting pretty close to a remission," neuro-oncologist Jeremy Rudnick is seen telling her and Meredith Vieira in a clip from a documentary that will air Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. on NBC.

      "It defies the odds," he added.
