John Lamparski/GettyHow many days from last year do you remember?
Really stop and think about it.
Now see if you can identify any patterns among those days that stand out. Were they all happy? Upsetting? Relaxing?
According to Jesse Itzler, we're more likely to remember experiences that are unpleasant, at least in the moment.
Itzler is the cofounder of Marquis Jets, owner of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks, and a former rapper; he's also married to Spanx founder Sara Blakely.
APEvery New Yorker knows that living farther away from where the action is saves you money.
But just how much?
You can pay up to $845 less per month by adding one extra subway stop and 2 minutes more to your daily commute, according to a new study by the apartment rental listings website RentHop.
The analysis of Renthop's own rental listing prices within less than half a mile from major subway stations shows that the city's most expensive one-bedroom rentals can be found near the 23rd Street station on the 1 line, where the median price is $4,000 a month.
The most affordable are in the Bronx on the 5 and 6 lines, where the median is $1,250 near the Gun Hill Road and Pelham Bay Park stations.
The median rent for one-bedroom apartments near the 66th Street stop on the 1 line is $845 greater than for those near the 72nd Street stop.
Dean Drobot/shutterstockLast year, 2015, was the year of the unicorn, a startup that raised so much venture investment, it was valued at $1 billion or more.

Cut to 24 hours later, as she was entering expenses into the 60 or so designated categories in Google Sheets and bemoaning the fact that she had already spent more than planned this month, thanks to an annual renter's insurance payment.

VandalIn New York, there are nightlife impresarios and then there are nightlife kings.
The heads of Tao Group, the ubiquitous nightlife empire stretching from Las Vegas to Sydney, are kings. They basically invented the "clubstaurant" concept with massively successful venues like their namesake Tao and Lavo.
Wall Street money loves Tao Group, and it's almost guaranteed that you'll find groups of second-year bank analysts, private-equity VPs, and hedge fund managing directors at any of its properties at any given time.
But that doesn't mean the food is good.
The new hot Tao clubstaurant is Vandal.
