How Under Armour went from a new hotshot sportswear company taking on Nike to a brand with a wholly uncertain future

Under Armour, still a leading athletic-wear seller, has fallen into a bit of a rut. Shares of the company fell 15% following the announcement of second-quarter earnings on Tuesday where the company missed revenue forecasts and announced it expects sales to decline in North America throughout 2019. Under Armour has had massive problems in the past, including $1.3 billion in unsold merchandise in 2018, shrinking popularity among teens, and a scandal involving executives going to strip clubs as a company expense. The company announced a turnaround plan in 2018 that didn’t lead to immediate growth — but in May of 2019, a 4% jump in shares after higher-than-expected first-quarter earnings… Read More

Here’s exactly what it costs me to live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the median rent for a three-bedroom house is $2,250. But, because I rent a room instead of owning a house, I pay much less: about $600 per month.
