Randoms-Meditation not Cure All & Major Bling from McDonalds

Gross … A frat at Cornell University was put on probation after word got out about their so-called “pig roast” contest. Seems this sick “game” at Zeta Beta Tau fraternity rewarded members for sleeping with larger women, and a bonus was given to the guy who slept with the heaviest person. Guess an Ivy League education can't buy class. (NY Daily News)

           

Millennials are going broke … because of social media. According to research by Allianz Life, 57 percent of Millennials (compared to 28 percent of Gen-Xers and 7 percent of Baby Boomers) say they've spent money they didn’t have because of something they saw on social media. Seems lots of Millennials feel pressure to keep up appearances – with nearly 50 percent saying they are influenced by their friends’ posts of lavish vacations and lifestyles. According to the survey, “Social media has become the Millennials’ financial Achilles Heel.” (Moneyish)

       

Burger Bling … This Valentine’s Day, show your love … to McDonald’s. McDonald’s and jeweler Nading Ghosn have created the "Bling Mac" -- a stackable 18k gold ring inspired by the Big Mac. Each layer of the ring represents the layers of the burger, including diamonds for sesame seeds, Champagne brown diamonds for patties, green gemstones for lettuce and orange sapphires for the Special Sauce. Interested? This $12,500 ring can be yours for free. All you have to do is be the best at showing your love. McDonald's is asking fans to write “vows of love” to Big Macs on Twitter. Just tweet @McDonald's with #BlingMacContest. The contest runs through February 14th. (Cosmo, Bustle)

               

Ohm-oh … While meditation has become more and more popular in recent years, a new study says that it's not a cure-all. Researchers found that meditation doesn’t really increase compassion, connectedness or empathy. It also doesn’t reduce aggression and prejudice. To be clear, it doesn't make you worse. But it also doesn't make you better. Who you are when you start your meditation session is pretty much who you are when you end that session. Thoughts? (Forbes)
