[ooyala code=”lsZTJubzrf3DSYivO2SP_kdplNbNoFnJ” player_id=”9ae34776f76145da969becdeb205e6a5″]NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — A young computer whiz from New York City has launched a site to help people buy cheap plane tickets. But an airline company and its travel partner want to shut him down.

United Airlines and Orbitz filed a civil lawsuit last month against 22-year-old Aktarer Zaman, who founded the website Skiplagged.com last year.

The site helps travelers find cheap flights by using a strategy called “hidden city” ticketing.

[van id=”bestoftv/2014/12/10/qmb-iata-tony-tyler-airline-outlook.cnn”]The idea is that you buy an airline ticket that has a layover at your actual destination. Say you want to fly from New York to San Francisco — you actually book a flight from New York to Lake Tahoe with a layover in San Francisco and get off there, without bothering to take the last leg of the flight.

This travel strategy only works if you book a one-way flight with no checked bags…

Bake. Create. Love.

So who’s down for a painless way to save $1378 in 2015?

It’s simple. Every week you save money based on what week in the year it is. The first week you save $1. The next week, you save $2. The twentieth week, you save $20 (and so on).

You can use actual cash and put in a jar, or you can set up a separate savings account and transfer the money from one bank account to another every week. I use the bank account method. Since I don’t carry cash ever, I feel like I’d waste more than I’d save. The first week, I’d end up getting $20 from the ATM, buying a pack of gum to break it, putting a dollar in the jar and then blowing the rest, which doesn’t feel like saving to me.

I am God's Favour

cheating-husband1

Wow! This is a MUST read story guys! Came across this piece online and not sure who wrote it, but it’s a great story with a solid lesson to teach and a reminder to every woman. Please continue reading and don’t forget to share…..someone out there might need this!

“Biyi hasn’t worked for that long?” Dayo’s voice drips with resentment. “For real?” “He’s been trying,” I say in feeble attempt to defend my husband. “You know how the economy is.”

…My husband and I had vowed never to bring in a third party into our relationship but with a bank account screaming for revival, I need to share my burden with someone else. I grip the phone. Dayo is unusually quiet. “You still there?” I ask. “Hello?” “I am here,” she says. “I just didn’t know things were this bad. And all this while, I thought Biyi was providing for…

Dear Family and Friends:

I understand that we will be visiting each other for the holidays this year! Sometimes these visits can be very hard for me, but here is some information that might help our visit to be more successful.
