The employment website Glassdoor has put together a new list of the “Best Jobs in America,” for people who are primarily concerned with money and advancement. Their list doesn’t take into account things like overall satisfaction or flexibility, instead relies on three more pragmatic factors: Current number of job openings, average base salary and how easy it is to advance. With a base salary of $111,376 and more than 45,000 current openings, physician assistant topped the list. It was followed by software engineer, business development manager and HR manager. Mysteriously absent from this year’s rankings was “Professional Netflix Binge Watcher.” You can go here to see all 25 jobs ... Discuss

Ira Keys is an 81-year-old man whose father taught him a simple rule: "'Whatever you do, son, save your money,'" Keys recounted to KCBD. "Back when I started in '52, I didn't have a lot of money, so I saved pennies and I just kept saving them."

The Slaton, Texas resident did just that and, millennials, take heed. Keys finally took all his pennies (all 500 pounds of them) down to the bank to cash in, netting a cool $816. Not a bad return for a simple habit he picked up as a little kid. Of course, the local bank in Staton reportedly had to count each penny by hand, so maybe not everyone is thrilled with Keys' decision, but his wisdom holds up ... Discuss

Aaron Joseph Purmort was diagnosed with a brain tumor back in 2011. Around that same time, he met Nora, whom he would go on to marry and spend the next, last three years of his life battling cancer alongside. In that time, the two had a son and slowly learned to accept that the tumor would take Aaron's life. But the two shared a wonderful sense of humor, and co-wrote his obituary—an obituary which is now seeing the light of the day, after Aaron passed away last Tuesday. It's sweetly funny, very heavy on Spider-Man fandom and even poignant.

Purmort, Aaron Joseph age 35, died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a years long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer, who has plagued our society for far too long. Civilians will recognize him best as Spider-Man, and thank him for his many years of service protecting our city. His family knew him only as a kind and mild-mannered Art Director, a designer of websites and t-shirts, and concert posters who always had the right cardigan and the right thing to say (even if it was wildly inappropriate). Aaron was known for his long, entertaining stories, which he loved to repeat often. In high school, he was in the band The Asparagus Children, which reached critical acclaim in the northern suburbs. As an adult, he graduated from the College of Visual Arts (which also died an untimely death recently) and worked in several agencies around Minneapolis, settling in as an Interactive Associate Creative Director at Colle + McVoy. Aaron was a comic book aficionado, a pop-culture encyclopedia and always the most fun person at any party. He is survived by his parents Bill and Kim Kuhlmeyer, father Mark Purmort (Patricia, Autumn, Aly), sisters Erika and Nicole, first wife Gwen Stefani, current wife Nora and their son Ralph, who will grow up to avenge his father's untimely death.
