Check Out This Week’s Winning HubNuggets!

After over 120+ people placed their vote over here, the final HubNuggets were finally made official yesterday and sent out in the HubPages Weekly newsletter to all of the fine Hubbers out there (over 55,000 of them!).

Also, it’s worth mentioning that Kelsey Tallis has set an  all-new HubNuggets record for the highest percentage of votes with a dominating 40% (which she can thank her friends and fellow 30 Seconds to Mars fans over here for). Here are the 5 Hubs that made the cut:

HubNugget 1: Jared Leto and the So-Called Cult of 30 Seconds to Mars (40%)

“The name Jared Leto may be familiar from movies like Requiem for a Dream, Fight Club, Panic Room, etc. He also stars in Jaco van Dormael’s new sci-fi fantasy Mr. Nobody (set for release in May). But a lot of people still don’t realize he is also the front man for the increasingly popular rock band 30 Seconds to Mars (30STM).” Read more »

HubNugget 2: The Other Side of SubPrime Loans (14%)

“The roots of subprime crises can be traced back to as early as 2001, when the terrorist attacks happened and US economy had started reeling under immense pressure and that was also the period when dotcom bubble had burst.” Read more »

HubNugget 3: FoodEco-Friendly and Frugal: Buy Less Packaging and Get More Food (14%)

“Everyone wants to save money, right? When we are busy being hammered by an economic crisis that could rival the Great Depression, we’re always thinking economy. Right now, we need to have our precious dollars go further. But sometimes, we get fooled by packaging. While it might seem like processed and prepackaged foods save you time and money, it’s a carefully crafted illusion. Packaging is designed to entice you – and your kids. But it isn’t delivering any nutritional value.” Read more »

HubNugget 4: 99 on Wednesday (11%)

“A year short of a century. It’s beyond a number. It’s a lifetime. A life of love, laughter, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-greats and yes, even great-great-greats. A life of teaching and learning and crying and laughing and peace and wars and mostly, love. She’s loved more than anything else. More than she’s cried. More than she’s laughed. More than she’s been angry. She has loved ALOT. And she IS loved ALOT. She has influenced people, family and strangers alike. She is responsible for introducing hundreds, if not thousands of people to Christ. She is the reason I have the peace of knowing that no matter how bad it is or becomes here, I’ll eventually find myself in a place of perfection where there are no tears, no pain, no hurt, no anger, no stress, no frustration, no fear. I owe her more than I will ever be able to repay.” Read more »

HubNugget 5: How to Quit Smoking: An Easy Method (6%)

“Almost five months ago, I quit smoking after fifteen years as a smoker. I had tried and tried in the past to put the cigarettes down, but nothing worked. I hated the chiding that I received from family, and the unsupportive comments that my husband made about how it’s “easy” to quit. He was never a smoker. I had read books, browsed websites, signed up for programs and talked to counselors. Nothing had helped. I’d been pregnant three times as a smoker, but it was my last birth that really pushed me over the edge and forced me to make a decision. She was born at less than six pounds, two large knots tied in her umbilical cord. My labor was induced due to fetal distress. I knew then that something had to change.” Read more »
