In a land of honking horns, chirping cell phones and drive-through attention spans, there isn't time to be patient. Pick your poison: consumerism, materialism, self-absorption. Experts say they are each an ingredient in a recipe for perpetual impatience, turning humans into hamsters racing in their wheels, getting nowhere fast.   BE PATIENT - Studies show impatience can be unhealthy, linking it to hypertension, increased anger and elevated stress. CNS Illustration.  Elizabeth Carll, a clinical psychologist in Long ... [full story]

Dear Mr. Berko: We're retired and don't have enough income to meet our living expenses, especially real estate taxes, home insurance costs, food, medical and upkeep, which seems to be increasing every year. Please tell me about a reverse annuity mortgage. Like, what do they cost? Do we have to pay off our current low mortgage? Are they very expensive? What happens to the equity when we pass on?

Dear Mr. Berko: I want to invest about $14,000 in some high-yielding common stocks and some high-yielding preferred stocks that have been beaten down by the market and I want at least a 13 percent dividend. I'm willing to take a big gamble with this money, which is an unexpected tax refund because we grossly overestimated our income for 2007 on our quarterly payments. We will be investing this money in our "speculative retirement" account. ... [full story]

Dear Mr. Berko: I was looking at the stock pages recently and found Regal Entertainment Group selling at $20.60 and paying a nice $1.20 dividend, which is nearly 6 percent. I just renewed a $7,000 certificate of deposit and got 3.75 percent from my bank. I have a $3,500 CD coming due next month and thought I'd buy 150 shares of Regal because the yield is 6 percent and because during hard economic times more ... [full story]

Tiger Woods is wrong. That's what more than 56,000 people say. Or maybe they just wanted an all-expenses-paid summer trip to San Diego. Late last year, Golf Digest asked readers to write an essay about why they thought they could break 100 on the Torrey Pines South Course a week before this June's U.S. Open. It was Woods who made an off-the-cuff comment last year at Oakmont that the average golfer couldn't best three figures ... [full story]

On Dec. 14, 2005, Chuck Long answered the phone at his home in Norman, Okla. A reporter was calling that night from San Diego and asked if Long had received any contact related to the vacant head football coach's position at San Diego State. "No," Long said. He repeated his answer twice more for clarity. Less than three days later, he was introduced as the Aztecs' new coach. In other words, he told a fib ... [full story]
