A financial planner says 3 steps can keep high-earning millennials from blowing their money

  • This cohort of millennials — known as Henrys, short for "high earner, not rich yet" — doesn't have a plan to make sure they're saving consistently and automatically.
  • According to Drucker, Henrys only save whatever money they have left at the end of the month after prioritizing all their other needs.
  • This bucket is for money sitting in the bank that's easily accessible — also known as liquid money, Drucker said.
  • Assets, such as your home or retirement accounts, are the least liquid because they're invested — allowing them to gain value over time, reported Business Insider's Tanza Loudenback.
  • When you open a CD, you agree to tie your money up for a specific period of time — usually anywhere from three months to five years — in exchange for a fixed annual percentage yield (APY), according to Loudenback.

Despite a few high-profile incidents, helicopters are generally safe to fly — as long as proper safety procedures are followed

  • Accidents in the United States have generally trended toward a decline, despite a slight increase from 2016 to 2017 and a spike in 2018, according to data from the US Helicopter Safety Team (USHST).
  • Papillon Airways, the company that operated a helicopter involved in the 2018 Grand Canyon crash, was also involved in a 2001 crash that killed six when the pilot made an error, National Transportation Safety Board officials said at the time, according to CNN.
  • According to the US Helicopter Safety Team, accident rates in general aviation — the type of flight performed by a private individual or company including private charters, as opposed to a common carrier like an airline or some larger charter companies — show that helicopters are actually involved in slightly fewer accidents than fixed-wing aircraft.

The first download numbers for Byte, the app heralded as Vine 2.0, show it still has a long way to go to catch up to TikTok

  • The debut of Byte on Friday was met with rapt attention from creators and fans who adored the six-second video app Vine and mourned its death when Twitter shut it down in 2016.
  • The immediate hype surrounding Byte translated to around 780,000 downloads of the app over the weekend, according to data provided by app analytics firm Sensor Tower.
  • When Vine launched in January 2013 (solely on the App Store for iOS devices), it accrued 105,000 downloads in its first few days, according to Sensor Tower data.
  • That means Byte lapped Vine's download numbers by more than seven times over in its debut.
  • In the same timeframe this weekend that Byte attracted 780,000 downloads, TikTok racked in 8.2 million downloads, Sensor Tower told Business Insider.

Iranian state TV used a photo of an actor from 'Zero Dark Thirty' to spread a wild theory that a senior CIA official was killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan

The movie is a dramatization of the US assassination of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.
  • The network also said D'Andrea "had a key role in killing Iranian general Qasem Soleiman," according to BBC Monitoring.
