The growth in the number of millionaires was a result of the rising stock and property markets last year. The Hang Seng Index rose 36 per cent in 2017 while property prices rose 14 per cent, creating more wealthy men and women in Hong Kong.
Do you know who does have to work in your best interest? Fiduciaries. There are plenty of them out there—you can search for one here—and these advisors pledge to do what’s best for you, their client. Certified Financial Planners (CFPs) and Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are fiduciaries, for example. They don’t get kickbacks from certain products, they don’t tack on extra fees. Instead they help you make a financial plan that works for you.
Add government transparency into the mix and what will hostile non-state intelligence operatives like Julian Assange have to publish? I say we drive the WikiLeaks fake news complex right out of business by eliminating the immense veil of secrecy which shrouds so many levels of US government. That way when those annoying conspiracy kooks try to say we’re not being given the full story about the behavior of America and its allies, our leaders can just tell them “Uh, yes we are actually” and show unredacted documentation of all their behaviors.
What Happens When An Algorithm Cuts Your Health Care (blackeagle)
When an assessor arrived in 2016 and went over her situation, it was a familiar process: how much help did she need to use the bathroom? What about eating? How was her emotional state? The woman typed notes into a computer and, when it was over, gave Dobbs a shocking verdict: her hours would be cut, to just 32 per week.
The Global Elite is Insane (Revisited) (Matt H.)
So I would like to propose a more rigorous definition of sanity: Sanity is the capacity to consider a set of circumstances, to carefully analyze the evidence pertaining to those circumstances, to identify the cause of any conflict or problem, and to respond appropriately, both emotionally and intellectually, to that conflict or problem with the intention of resolving it, preferably at a higher level of need satisfaction for all parties (including those of the Earth and all of its living creatures).
Markets Have Gone “Thelma and Louise” (GE Christenson)
Markets occasionally experience “Thelma and Louise” (T&L) moments when they “cross over” into a new phase. The results are usually traumatic. Now is a good time to call Miles Franklin to convert over-valued digital assets into real silver bullion.
While many politicians focus on the gun debate when discussing the issue of mass shootings, what virtually none of them ever mention is the clearly established link between such mass homicides and psychiatric drugs. The mental health watchdog organization, CCHR International, recently reported that at least 36 school shootings or other school-related acts of violence were committed by people who were either on psychiatric drugs or withdrawing from them – which can be just as dangerous.
It should be noted that violence in rural areas of South African has been endemic even before the expropriation law was passed. Not all of the violence is black on white. Many blacks have been murdered as well. But what’s happening there is reminiscent of what happened in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in 1980, when the black majority took control and an orgy of black-on-white murders of white farmers drove the rest into exile.
According to the sheriff’s office, precautionary evacuations are being conducted at Moccasin Point Campground and facilities downstream of the dam along the creek have been evacuated.
First discovered in the early 1990s, the trash in the patch comes from around the Pacific Rim, including nations in Asia and North and South America, Lebreton said.
The patch is not a solid mass of plastic. It includes about 1.8 trillion pieces and weighs 88,000 tons — the equivalent of 500 jumbo jets. The new figures are as much as 16 times higher than previous estimates.
