If you haven't heard of this man, I would definitely recommend that you tune in on Bloomberg Television or open up your finance app on your phone. Everyone in the business and technology world just can't keep his name out of their mouth. I'm not going to lie to you and say that everything that is said about him is positive because it's not, but let's be real: as a man of his status who wouldn't have haters? Elon Musk is changing up the game and making the impossible into possible. Here are some reasons why he is so intriguing!

Three companies. Three creations.

Tesla

Yes, you heard that right, folks. He is the founder of Tesla Inc., SpaceX, and The Boring Company. If you didn't know he founded these companies, now you know. By having that futuristic attractive looking car there is no way that people can keep their eyes off it. Well, what about SpaceX? This man's goal is to go to Mars. I think that in itself is mind-blowing. Now let's get to The Boring Company, Elon literally started making holes on the ground! He intends to make these tunnels to decrease traffic in high-traffic cities, so thank you Elon.

South Africa must be proud.

South Africa

Elon Musk officially became an American Citizen back in 2002. He initially is from South Africa. If you listen closely, you can still hear his accent.

Talulah Riley

Even when you're out there changing the world, you have to make some time for romance. Elon has been married three times. Two of those times were to the British actress Talulah Riley. Don't worry Elon, I'm sure you'll get it right, next time.

He's a "thrillionaire."

I honestly did not know that this was an actual word. They made it especially for high-tech entrepreneurs like Elon Musk who are trying to make science-fiction dreams into a reality.

His Twitter game too strong.

Just because our current president tweets out important news doesn't mean that other people can't too. With anything that he posts on Twitter, people freak out and sometimes they become headlines. Elon knows the power that this social media has, so he has learned to use it to his advantage.

 Joe Rogan, what’s up man?

After being a guest in Joe Rogan's podcast, he decides to take a few puffs of weed. After this happened, Elon Musk had the attention of many because that came unexpectedly. It's okay Elon, you do you.

Elon has done such amazing and very memorable activities. I can't wait to see what the future holds for his companies and what he thinks of doing next. Stay tuned world!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
