Budgeting: Part 3

How to Budget Successfully

It’s one thing to sit down and decide you need to budget and another to execute it. The key to really being successful at budgeting is to take a multi-step approach to budgeting and to stop making budgeting excuses or serious budgeting mistakes. In general, traditional budgeting starts with tracking expenses, eliminating debt, and once the budget is balanced, to even try building an emergency fund. Here are some tips which will make it easier for you to budget successfully.

Before You Budget

One of the reasons people fail when they begin to budget is that they don’t believe in the budgeting process and have a difficult time determining how a budget will help them improve what they want to do. They may feel like they are too poor to budget or that things will work themselves out. So before you sit down and hash out the numbers for your budget, you need to decide what you want your budget to do for you. read more

Chemical Structure of DNA is Discovered

February 28 1953

On this day in 1953, Cambridge University scientists James D. Watson and Francis H.C. Crick announce that they have determined the double-helix structure of DNA, the molecule containing human genes.

Though DNA–short for deoxyribonucleic acid–was discovered in 1869, its crucial role in determining genetic inheritance wasn’t demonstrated until 1943. In the early 1950s, Watson and Crick were only two of many scientists working on figuring out the structure of DNA. California chemist Linus Pauling suggested an incorrect model at the beginning of 1953, prompting Watson and Crick to try and beat Pauling at his own game. On the morning of February 28, they determined that the structure of DNA was a double-helix polymer, or a spiral of two DNA strands, each containing a long chain of monomer nucleotides, wound around each other. According to their findings, DNA replicated itself by separating into individual strands, each of which became the template for a new double helix. In his best-selling book, The Double Helix (1968), Watson later claimed that Crick announced the discovery by walking into the nearby Eagle Pub and blurting out that “we had found the secret of life.” The truth wasn’t that far off, as Watson and Crick had solved a fundamental mystery of science–how it was possible for genetic instructions to be held inside organisms and passed from generation to generation.

Four women were eating lunch together one day and they got on the subject of children. One of them says, "My boy's a priest, and whenever he walks into a room, everyone says 'Hello Father'."

Another woman joins in and says, "My boy's a bishop, and whenever he walks into the room, everyone says 'Hello Your Grace'."

The 3rd woman decides to chime in and says, "My son's a Cardinal, and when he walks into a room, everyone says 'Hello Your Eminence'."

Finally the last mother says, "Well my son didn't go into the priesthood, but he's a 6 foot 2 inch 200 pound burning hunk of muscle and whenever he walks into a room, everyone says 'Oh my GOD!'"
