Easy PeasyGood morning.
Stocks jumped higher yesterday afternoon as the Federal Reserve kept interest rates at zero and kept in accommodating language in its statement.  Traders now expect the bank to refrain from raising interest rates into 2023.
While that’s what markets wanted to hear, it does run the risk of overstimulating the economy in the next few months as the pandemic lockdowns wind down.  While the Fed reported that inflation was running under 2 percent, a number of measures indicate higher prices in everything from food to homes.

Is the Fed right to hold off on raising interest rates until 2023, or should we brace for higher inflation?

Hit reply and share your thoughts.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

This image and message is circulating the globe … and with very good reason … but, I’m concerned with healthy peoples’ greater risk!

Being outdoors is 100% safe.

Please get outside and GET SOME SUN … whatever you do, please DON’T stay locked up inside your house … that’s the WORST thing you can do for your immune system right now.  You need to get outside and get some fresh air and sunshine (while still staying away from gatherings and practicing social distancing).  Now that we’re in late March, most areas in North America and Europe are getting warmer and sunnier, and getting sun on your skin is the biggest thing you can do to boost your immune system right now.  xan-griffin11
The aspect of vitamin D production in your skin from sun exposure is just one aspect of how sunshine boosts your immune system.  There are other reasons too, such as how the sun improves your mood, serotonin, balances hormones, etc.  It’s also important to note that getting vitamin D from sun exposure on your skin is thought to be significantly more beneficial for your immune system than a supplement.
So whatever you do, please make an effort to get outside for daily walks in the sun (without having your skin fully covered, since you need skin exposed to get the majority of the benefits), or get out-side and do some gardening or other yard work.  Or even just lay out in the sun if you have a deck (without getting burned of course).

brooklyn11Remember, getting outside doesn’t mean you have to be around a lot of people, or do anything risky at all.  You can still get outside and stay safe all while significantly boosting your immune system.  You will NOT catch coronavirus by breathing outdoor air.  That‘s basically impossible.  The virus only concentrates in indoor areas when you’re around people who are already infected and coughing.
It’s interesting to note that the coronavirus has been mostly clustered north of 30 degrees N latitude, but areas further south of that have been largely unaffected.  Many medical researchers believe, the reason for this is because the sun has been stronger south of 30 degrees N latitude, so most populations south of there have much stronger immune systems than people further north that haven’t seen any significant sun in the last 6 months.

There’s also a theory that this particular virus doesn’t like warmer temperatures, and while that may partially explain less infections further south, the aspect of sunshine and your immune strength is more likely the main reason for more infections further north and less further south.

I’ve been a follower of Mike Dillard and his “Self-Made-Man” podcasts for a great many years, gathering entrepreneur wisdom … to listen to … in either my “University on Wheels” or … while stocking the shelves of Calgary Co-op late at night.  Mike is revamping and doing a ‘life reboot of sorts’ — as a result — after watching the message below… head on over to Mike’s website to pick up a treasure-trove of $5_deals.

Hope you got value!  Until tomorrow… chow… 😉

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
