Is My Money Really Safe?
Frank Answers to Your Tough Questions

When IndyMac bank failed this summer, the lines of nervous account holders trying to withdraw their money made headlines everywhere. But that was an anomaly. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) has taken over ten other banks this year without incident. If you are worried about the safety of your money – in banks or brokerages, such as Lehman Brothers, which filed for bankruptcy September 14 – or money you've paid your mortgage servicer for taxes or insurance, here are answers to your pressing questions.

Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs
What You Should Know

We’ve all heard that using compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) is one very simple thing we can do to have a big impact on the amount of energy we use. In fact, if every American home replaced just one incandescent light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified CFL, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars.

Salt
It's the Spice of Life
By Kirk Leins
