If you're a big fan of college basketball, think twice -- even thrice -- before making any changes to your portfolio over the next couple of weeks. Why? Because today marks the opening game of March Madness, and during tournaments as popular as this one you are especially prone to act irrationally when your favorite sports team loses. And I don't just mean doing something foolish in your local sports bar. When your favorite team loses, believe it or not, you're also likely to do something foolish in your portfolio, too. That at least is the conclusion reached by a rigorous academic study that appeared in the ...

Understanding Stocks | StockMarketInformation.Org
This book is a great book for beginning investors. Nearly every book I’ve read on the subject has been dry and boring, and I’d tend to retain little knowledge as I trudged my way through. Michael Sincere does an amazing job of covering a large amount of information in a format that’s easy to read and understand. Most books on stocks I’ve read are heavily biased towards fundamental or technical analysis, and do very little to explain both. This book covers both fundamental and technical analysis, and gives the pros and cons of each, suggesting that using both is best, and leaves it to the reader to ... market research, surveys and trends

Free Money Finance: The First Million is the Hardest Million to Make
Why does the 1st million seem so difficult to make? It’s the principle of compound interest that makes the 1st million the hardest million that you will ever earn. Here are a few examples. If you started with $100,000 and would like it to grow to $1,000,000 than you would need a 900% return on your money. ($100,000 + $900,000) = $1,000,000 If you started with $10,000 and would like it to grow to $1,000,000 than you would need a 9,900% return on your money. ($10,000 + $990,000) = $1,000,000 If you started with $1,000 and would like it to grow to $1,000,000 than you would need a 99,900% return on your money.

May 19-20, 2005 Writen Testimony for Remarks by Clyde Prestowitz
With the U.S. economy on life support lending from the central banks of China and Japan and the White House backtracking on open markets in textiles, steel, and agriculture while proving unable to conclude new free trade deals, it’s time for American economists, CEOs, and political leaders to fess up. In its current form and mode of operation, globalization is ultimately unsustainable and is presently undermining long term U.S. welfare and power. As usually presented in the press and quantified in economic models, globalization presumes a world of private enterprises engaging in free trade through open markets under ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

I'd like to transcode the commentary tracks of some DVD's for iPod listening, preferably on a mac. I think I have it narrowed down to some obscure VLC commands. Not really knowing where else it would be appropriate to ask this, but does anyone else think that the years and events since the turn of the century (2000) have been particularly trying, difficult, and full of tragedy? Especially in light of this weeks most recent disasters. Odd spot. A couple weeks ago I discovered a pink patch about 2 inches long by 1 inch wide on the top of my left breast. Being a city person, I am curious about why so many barns on the ...
