Denken Sie daran, diesen Film mit Will Smith in es: The Pursuit of Happyness? Viele von uns beziehen können, mit dem Gefühl der Charakter hatte, arbeitslos und mittellos. Das Gefühl der Ohnmacht kann völlig deprimierend und Energie-saugen. Auf der anderen Seite neigen Leute haben kein Geld-Mangel, gesellig, selbstsicher und besonnene, im Gegensatz zu häufig einsam, zaghafte und reizbar "Armen" Seelen sein. Dies gilt in vielen Fällen, die wir kennen, wenn nicht aus eigener Erfahrung, zumindest aus unserer engen Beziehungen.

Nationalstiftung für Kredit-Beratung in den USA hat eine Umfrage, die ergab, dass fast 80 % der Menschen behaupten, verlieren sie Schlaf durch geldprobleme über andere Themen wie ihre Ehen, die Kinder oder die Sicherheit des Arbeitsplatzes. Es scheint daher, dass viele schlaflosen Menschen in unserer Mitte ein Großteil der unglücklichen Familien umfassen.

Im Allgemeinen sind wir uns einig, dass echtes Glück nicht kommt aus unserer materiellen Besitz, sondern in die immaterielle Dinge, die wirklich im Leben wichtig. Jedoch kann damit geld klug umgehen hinzufügen viel auf das Niveau der Zufriedenheit und Vertrauen, die Menschen haben im Leben...

Target

Asking again, does anyone know when the Target Express will open here in Streeterville at 401 E Illinois?

  • I haven't heard anything about it since November. It's not listed on their site. They usually do a big media blitz before opening a store, so when it's coming up they'll be sure to let us know.

Streeterville Residents

I am a journalist with Medill Reports at Northwestern University and am looking for Streeterville residents who would be interested in being interviewed on camera regarding their reaction to the Whole Foods opening in you neighborhood. The interview will be Jan. 28 between 9am to 12pm. I will be at the grand opening ceremony for the new Whole Foods but am flexible and can travel. An honest reaction/opinion, whether good or bad, is what I am looking for. I realize this is last minute but my editor changed the angle of my story last minute.

Thank you in advance.

EveryBlock arrives too late

What is the point of getting messages a week late?

  • Judith: Can you clarify? Do you mean that news stories are out of date, or that messages and responses are slow to post? I haven't noticed either. I often am pointed to an interesting story that I hadn't yet discovered.

  • I've noticed that many posts, particularly local activities, seem to be posted the day after the event. Never understood why.

  • L

    Everyblock has an automated "web crawler" that searches for articles based on address. Thus, it is only reporting back what it finds. If someone posts an article today for something that happens today, you may or may not see it on EB in time.

They will play background music at an acceptable level that you can have a conversation which is why there will not be a DJ. There will be plenty of events for that :)

We have gone over with the senior management of this place a drink special that is not available to the general public and just our group which is why there is a $10 cover for this cocktail party. There also will be a photographer that we are paying to take professional pictures.

Traffic light behavior

Hi Chicago drivers,

Does anyone know why (in the past 6 mos or so) drivers are going through backed up yellow and green lights, resulting in their car blocking the intersection of busy downtown streets? When this happens, it blocks lines of traffic for a mile up the street, resulting in a total blockage and even more bad driving. Trying to understand why this is happening, if there are any laws against it in IL, and how to maybe reduce the occurrences of it.

  • David Lightman Part time head turner, full time jaw dropper

    "that's why I hate driving in the loop" shhhhhhh

  • In the past, we used to have traffic cops at certain intersections that were really bad. No more. I notice this on certain streets, and it's like these people are doing it on purpose. I don't drive but take the bus. I don't know how many times it would take 30 minutes to get through 1 light because of this.

Looking for interview subjects

Hi, I'm a videographer/photographer in Streeterville looking for interview subjects for a project I'm working on which collects stories or poignant moments from the older generation. We have a diverse community/rich history in Chicago and I know there are a ton of fascinating moments to capture. I've tried volunteering at nursing homes and calling assisted living facilities and only got a couple stories. Any suggestions or referrals is appreciated!

Armed robbery 1:30 AM Monday December 29, 2014

At approximately 1:30am Monday morning December 29, 2014 my son was walking home from the Red Line L stop at Grand Avenue. He was followed from the L stop and held up at gunpoint by a Black teenager who appeared to be 17 to 18 years of age. The armed robbery occurred at the end of East North Water Street on the ground level, by the parking lot, where the street bends at the river, directly across from the NBC garage and located underneath the Sheraton Hotel. His phone and backpack were stolen, along with his school books and laptop. A police report was filed.

    hello Lisa.as I said in a previous comment from a day or two ago it's easy for us to sit in our chairs in our apartment and our comfort and pontificate on what one should or should not have done based on hindsight. The element of surprise is the aggressors greatest asset. I too can sympathize with your plight of dealing with the legal system as two of my kids are attorneys and the stories I hear are overwhelming for my brain to absorb in the stupidity and frankly how serial criminals are treated within the justice system. They are treated with kid gloves and it seems like the first few offenses no matter how egregious ......they get a pass card of some type. Being assaulted stays with you forever. my hope for you is time dulls that feeling. All the best

  • Dear Lisa,

    Thank you. Here is the description: young black male, approximately 17-18 yrs old, approximately 5'11'', stocky build, round face, clean shaven, rounded nose, brown eyes set wide apart, strong jaw. The mugger was wearing a black jacket, jeans and what looked like a Bulls tee shirt.

    My son was less able to describe the gun - black metal pistol, maybe 9mm
