Visiting the Visitors: Photographs at the 9/11 Memorial

A visitor takes pictures of the North Pool at the National 9/11 Memorial. Photo: Shaughn and John On the day of the attacks, twenty years ago, we were all counseled to stay away from downtown. Among so many other shocking moments that day, that one sticks out in my mind: when the official advice came over the TV to “evacuate Lower Manhattan.” (How would you even do that, I wondered.)

Are You Too Optimistic or Too Pessimistic with Your Financial Plans?

Individuals tend to have a natural bias toward optimism or pessimism. Experts believe that this bias is about 25% genetic but heavily influenced by your upbringing, relationships, and ease of schooling and other early successes and failures. It is also determined by age. A study found that optimism generally increases throughout younger adulthood, flattens out between ages 55 and 70 and then slowly decreases again after that. (Yes, it coincides roughly with the ages when you are happiest.) Is this a glass half full? Or, a glass half empty? No matter how you got to be the way you are, it is important...
