If only you'd paid extra attention in math class and become a mathlete . . . you'd FINALLY be hot right now. A website called CareerCast just came out with a list of the best and worst jobs for 2014 . . . and MATHEMATICIAN is number one. Overall, three of the top four jobs on the list are in math . . . and the other one is "professor," which could also be in math. Jobs are ranked on different criteria in four categories: Environment, income, outlook, and stress. Mathematician came out on top because it pulls in big money, it's low stress, and our world is getting more math-driven so the field is growing.
The rest of the top 10 best jobs are:
2. Tenured University Professor
6. Dental Hygienist
7. Software Engineer
8. Computer Systems Analyst
9. Occupational Therapist
10. Speech Pathologist.
On the other end, LUMBERJACK was named the worst job . . . it's incredibly dangerous, the pay is bad, and the industry is declining.

Miley Cyrus was hospitalized yesterday in Kansas City due to a severe allergic reaction to some kind of medication. She had to cancel a gig at the city's Sprint Center because of it. I'm sure your first thought was that it was some kind of non-prescription "medication". But remember, Miley had to cancel a show due to the flu last week, and a source says she's been battling major throat and sinus issues. She seems okay though. Last night she Tweeted a picture of herself in her hospital bed with a toy octopus, whose name is apparently "Mr. Octopussy".
Courtney Love likes Bruce Springsteen as a person . . . but apparently NOT as a musician. In a video on her YouTube channel, Courtney summed up her distaste for Bruce's music like this . . . quote, "Saxophones don't belong in rock and roll . . . they just don't belong in rock and roll."
