    Michael Phelps can breathe a sigh of relief following the summer games. Not only is he returning home from Rio a 23-time gold medalist, but he's officially announced his retirement--and can retreat home to his very posh pad in Scottsdale, Ariz., to bask in his Olympic glory. In December 2015, Phelps and fiancee Natalie Johnson, a former Miss California USA, purchased their $2.53 million desert dream home, according to USA Today. There, the couple have raised 3-month-old son, Boomer Phelps, who also attended the Olympic Games (below) and cheered on dad during his races. Time to wake up!!! Daddy is racing soon!!!

  • ASK A FINANCIAL PLANNER: 'How much money should I keep in my bank accounts?'

    How much should I keep in my checking and savings accounts? And where should I keep my emergency fund? It's important to have cash available for both regular and unexpected expenses. For obvious reasons, your checking and savings accounts should have enough money in them to cover these costs — but you don't want all of your assets in cash, either. Checking and savings accounts don't earn much interest, so there are better places to park your money if you don't need it immediately. In your checking account: at least a month of net pay A good rule of thumb is to keep at least one month of net pay in your checking at all times. Look for a checking account with no monthly fee and no minimum balance.

  • Defying courts, 28 French mayors maintain burkini ban as swimsuit becomes presidential campaign issue

    The mayors of 28 French towns are maintaining burkini bans in defiance of a court ruling, as the issue becomes a key one to the presidential campaign. Last Friday’s judgment by the State Council, France’s highest administrative court, that it is illegal to prohibit the full-body swimsuit applies specifically to one resort, Villeneuve-Loubet. Its conservative mayor has said he will comply with the decision, which set a legal precedent for the other 30 seaside towns that banned the burkini. A Socialist mayor in northern France and a centrist in the south-east also decided to lift bans at the weekend. Most of the other 28 mayors belong to the centre-Right Republicans or the far-Right Front National.

  • A 9-Year-Old With a Pacemaker Was Held Up at the Airport by 18 TSA Agents

    Nine-year-old Chille always goes through alternate screening at the airport because a pacemaker implanted in his heart doesn't allow for him to go through metal detectors. However, last week at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, AZ, Chille was traveling with his mom, Ali Bergman, when he was refused security screening because TSA allegedly told the pair, "Some terrorist plots use children with pacemakers." Upon arriving at the airport, Bergman, Chille's scooter, and their four bags passed through security, and instead of the "typical smile and use of the other machine or swiping his hands for explosives," Chille was surrounded by no less than 18 TSA agents and police officers.
