    Double or Nothing: Are Millennials Gambling with their Financial Future?

    TORONTO , Aug. 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Canadian Millennials are rolling the dice and not seeking financial help or professional advice when they receive an inheritance, according to a new survey from TD Bank. The survey uncovered that while 83 per cent of Millennials who have received, or who anticipate receiving, an inheritance feel confident in their ability to manage their inheritance, nearly half (46 per cent) of those who have already inherited wish they had sought professional advice on how to manage their new-found wealth. "Managing an inheritance can be incredibly overwhelming, especially for those Millennials who are typically not as well-versed in managing larger sums of money or assets.

    Amalie Arena tries to lure millenials to its Firestick Grill

    TAMPA — How to attract the cool kids? This is the mantra for so many restaurants these days: That huge generation of millennials eats differently, thinks differently and spends differently than their parents. So how do you reel them in and make them loyal customers? Even venues like Amalie Arena are grappling with this question. The arena's bread and butter is hockey, fans zipping in to the Firestick Grill before regular season games for a $77 buffet of grilled lobster tail and carving stations of prime rib and tomahawk ribeyes.

    Millennials Get Blamed for a Lot, But They Could Help to Save the U.S. Postal Service

    Where you live has a huge impact on your health and happiness: Location dictates everything from your local weather to crime rates. Each year, the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index interviews 160,000 U.S. adults about their lives, scoring different regions of the country on their residents' well-being and ranking the states based on the overall happiness of the people who live there. This year, according to USA Today, 24/7 Wall Street decided to add to that dataset by analyzing even more socioeconomic data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the FBI, and elsewhere, such as poverty rates, crime, social ties, and health across the U.S. The result is a more complete picture of how happy some states are, and how miserable others are. Both Dakotas made it into the top 10, with South Dakota taking the overall prize for the happiest state.
