Article of the Week:If only I had more time. There aren’t enough hours in the day. Since most of us have an overabundance of time, how can we make the most of it? This week’s highlighted article gives us ideas to move past our FOMO (look for the ✦ below).
Phone calls from your alma mater. Direct mail appeals featuring swoon-worthy puppies. Requests to buy Girl Scout cookies as you’re leaving the grocery store. We’re exposed to more fundraising pleas than ever before, so what is it that persuades us to feel philanthropic and reach into our wallets?

Envision you’re cruising down the highway, and a new song comes on the radio; it has a great beat and you enjoy the singer’s voice. A few days later, you hear the song and notice a lyric that really hits home, so you feel a connection – a similarity.

To many, March Madness is more than just a basketball tournament. It promises bracket competitions, buzzer beaters, and the occasional Cinderella story. And when it comes to seeing the NCAA tournament in person, there’s madness indeed. At Duke, tickets to see the men’s Blue Devils are so highly demanded that fans can’t simply purchase tickets; instead, they must enter and win a lottery before being presented the opportunity to buy tickets. In other words, the stars must first align before the credit card can work its magic. So, what are these tickets worth? You’d be surprised.
