The traditional record store soon will be a distant memory, its stacks of CDs and LPs rendered obsolete by the Internet, downloading and file-sharing, right?  
 
Wrong – at least in the case of one remarkable Chicago institution, the Jazz Record Mart, which lately has been approaching record sales.  
 
"Business seems to be growing … It's been good news, and it seems to be getting better," says Bob Koester, who owns both the Record Mart and Delmark Records, a revered Chicago jazz-and-blues label.
When I approached Casio's PR team for some information about their bestselling model, I got a curt email response saying: "Casio is not making any further comment on the F-91W watch at this point in time." Is this a case of too much negative publicity? Is the fact that Osama Bin Laden himself wears an F-91W bad for the brand's street cred? Yes and no. Arguably, it is a ringing endorsement of the product's lethal reliability. Many brands would embrace that cult status.
Walmart is a little different in China. They sell some really weird stuff there.  
 
worth mentioning is #16, the last one on the list
Sadly, not an iconic deep level structure, but the former Shoreditch station that used to be the terminus for the East London Line before the line was diverted as part of the Overground extension works. Frankly, it’s a bit of a shed and not that interesting – but nonetheless, a chance to own a disused tube station is pretty unique.  
 
It is being sold off by auction and has a comparatively low reserve price of £180,000 – probably as it straddles the former railway line, so access rights/leases will have to reflect the legal issues of not owning the land under the building.
Take a peek at this record player. It’s the kind that plays vinyl records, the 12″ kind, and it does it well with only the bare minimum. Fantastical! It’s called “Turnstyle” and it’s made up of the motor, the needle, the speakers, and the controls. What more do you need? It’s a skeleton of its former self, and not former as in it was stripped, former as in there’s no reason to ever go back to more!  
 
This project is designed by RD Silver, a designer who has the guts to take away everything but the guts. The requirements for function set upon this project were the following: spin record, on/off, volume, speaker, and needle. As far as design requirements: no corners, no hard edges, no 90 degree angles.
The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal's natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.  
 
Octopus Book: the Octopus Chair is the first piece of the Animal Chair collection, and it establishes a base and point of departure for the pieces to come.

Why do we spend so much time judging others’ spending? Because virtually everyone has experience with taxes and eating and expensive clothes. We therefore believe we are “amateur experts.”  
 
Yet many of these same people probably have never spent even three hours reading a personal finance book. They waste their energy focusing on others, judging them for spending $5 on lattes or $25 on an entree, instead of taking steps to improve their own finances.  
 
Why? Well, even if we tried to rationally critique our own spending, we would encounter an almost insurmountable number of psychological barriers that prevent us from honest self-examination.

Cost of ownership is higher on newer cars, largely because they're more capable, far cleaner and fuel-efficient and far safer. That 1965 Mustang you used to fix for a few bucks doesn't come close to meeting today's government regulations, goes down the road like a tractor compared with a modern car and had few of the electronic doodads we now take for granted. Ultimately, however, we pay for the technology—a 1965 Mustang cost just $2500—both initially and for repairs. Here are some examples of why fixing today's cars is so expensive.
