Taking care of business

UT SPORTS

You’ve been ‘megged’: UT soccer players’ stunt goes viral

Soccer ball at her feet, Jordan Fusco scouted the potential targets from a short distance away. She broke down their stride lengths, analyzed their pace and scanned how many others were in their vicinity.

TENNESSEE TITANS

Gospel music preps Simmons for NFL violence

Call it the calm before the storm. As violent and dominating a player as Jeffery Simmons can be, one might think he marches to hard-core rap strains of NWA or Eminem. Or maybe Simmons gets fired up for football with the hard rock sounds of AC/DC or Guns ‘n Roses.

Titans find their versatile running back in Hilliard

When running back Derrick Henry went down last season, the Titans examined their options as to how to fill his role. They first tried Adrian Peterson, but when it was evident that the future Hall of Famer didn’t have much left in the tank, the job fell to the duo of Dontrell Hilliard and D’Onta Foreman.

Mister Least-Favorite-Co-worker came around today, and you wanted to run.

MILLENNIAL MONEY

Teach your children to invest using these accounts

During my late teens, my mom handed me two worn, blue passport-size books with details of my custodial investment accounts. I had no clue what to do with them, but it didn’t matter, because the accounts were empty anyway. Perhaps for the best, because I’m almost certain my assets wouldn’t have stood a chance.

CAREER CORNER

Job market favors workers now, but prepare for change

I love that the last few years have been a job seeker’s market. In order to recruit and retain the best employees, companies have made large adjustments that seemed impossible before.
