The Dangers of Sugar and Children
"We all know that sugar isn't good for us but really let's take a deep dive into why we really need to limit it in our kids diets. Oh absolutely well. I think you know. Sometimes we forget that during times of rapid growth like in childhood and adolescence that you know kids bodies are really sensitive to the influence of dieting activity. Because they're growing so fast they're seltzer turning over rapidly and that makes them especially vulnerable to the effects of food of physical activity and weight and even environmental damage that can occur and so we really need to put an emphasis during this time of rapid cell growth to make sure that the genes that are being activated or turning on towards health not towards a genetic susceptibility and sugar can actually displace some of these high value. Nutrition foods that play in essential role not just in growth but an immunity but also cognition and genetic expression okay. That's something that we don't typically hear about. And so what about the things we do hear about a lot in terms of childhood obesity. Type two diabetes like these things. We should be concerned about.

Just places. high value nutrition and micronutrients that can increase the inflammatory process that leads to chronic disease over time. Even kids who were teenagers who are overweight and adolescents have a significantly higher risk of colon cancer later in life. I mean we're even seeing precursors in heart disease in children. I mean if you look at like obesity in preschoolers. I think it's risen from around five percent in the early seventies like nineteen seventy two up to close to fourteen percent

Wallin's dangerous the double album which also had earned more than one hundred thousand and each of its first five weeks.

Mock Draft 1.1: Houston Rockets
"Let's start with the houston rockets. They are one of three teams with the best shot of having the number one pick in the draft over fourteen percent chance of the number one. Pick a fifty two point one percent chance of winning a top four. Pick one of things that's relevant for the rockets is that if they don't get a top four pick in the draft. They must send their picked the oklahoma city thunder and so right now fifty two point one percent chance they pick it. It's it's really fifty fifty that the rockets even have their pick this year and thunder could potentially have to top five picks. And we'll talk about that a second when we get to the thunder but assuming for a minute that they get the number one pick in the draft. I have the number one on. Big board are sorry. I'm mock draft one point one km cunningham and i'll just say this about kate cottingham it is looking more and more likely that he is going to be the number one pick in any scenario that we can really think about it. Discuss right now he he. It seems like every team and scout. That i'm talking to the league has caved cunningham number one. I mean we'll see more on on lottery night on who actually gets the number one pick in which way it may go. But it's looking highly likely that cape cunningham is going to be the number one pick in the draft regardless of who draft where and certainly for the rockets. he fits indeed It's really a no brainer to have a versatile wing with his feel for the game and the way he can see the floor the way he can defend multiple positions. I think he's a no brainer for the rockets. But i could also say that about a lot of the other teams there so right now and mock draft one point one. The rockets get cade cunningham.

"In securities we rarely talk about strategy when investing your money and securities there there are two major strategies that that most people are considering and and a major debate going on amongst advisors and investors in the industry regarding these two strategy so so the basic question should you invest in an active way or passive way do you understand the difference and what are the pros and cons of each will stay with us because we're breaking it down for you today yeah we are we're gonna break it down very well. to ride again can you explain what is passive investing actually sure of course Clyde well let's jump then by helping me understand what the differences between passive and active investment strategies of many people you may simply understand the best thing is just putting your money into securities like stocks and bonds and yet the hope and pray that your money will appreciate over time well it seems really simple right well while they're a boatload of different investment vehicles that you can use to obtain your goal but depending upon who you talk to whether who you work with what you work with a financial advisor or broker or not or whoever it is if you handle your own investment you might even do it differently that you're likely fall under what what's considered the passive strategy war active one of the other server pretty much polar opposites to each other so what is passive so invest in a passive way of or using a passive strategies to use what are probably the most popular investment options out there today index options index mutual funds they're the most popular investment options on Wall Street today were you may consider investment index ETFs mainly what that means is you're buying things were really there's may not be an actual management being done at all you're buying a group of different funds and that that might that'll be tied to a particular index whether it's the day our whether it's the S. and P. there's a Barclays an index out there we've got on very well isn't this an extremely well yeah so far this year that it's up almost fourteen percent yeah but. that will of if you're buying things where there really is not a lot of actual management being done it's passive to be in an index investors to be a passive investor it means that you don't think it's worth it to pay more or have an adviser or to do it for you or or both were thinking that the fee or services is it going to yield any better results than the actual market itself thank you yes you may think the opposite and that you shouldn't pay any additional fees to funds are managers offered to manage the fund for the mere fact they probably won't outperform the benchmark for the index itself anyway but let's let's get a little bit more detail here you know you must first understand what the term benchmark is to understand in the past one busting of benchmark is something that you can compare your fun to or your portfolio to a very common bench mark is the S. and P. five hundred which represents five hundred large cap stocks so if you label the S. and P. five hundred as your benchmark your goal as a passive or index investor is to literally mirror the results of the benchmark so save the S. and P. five hundred goes up eight percent for the calendar year you should expect our desire that your money will also go up eight percent for that same time frame are you sure hope it will and that's referring to indexing so we're gonna mirror the index the S. and P. or the data or the nasdaq and there are funds that are designed exactly mirror that index and referring to the index that your basic premise for the idea of being a passive investor you believe that there's no advantage to actively buying or selling or trying to beat the market or the benchmark of that very frankly it's very difficult to do anyway so guess what it's time for a break your listing. the safe retirement solutions radio stay tuned because we've got a lot to go over today we're gonna discuss passive and active investing and we're going to give our weekly health to and we'll be right back. this WZVN traffic.

The seven thirty seven sits low to the ground lower than the Airbus. The new engines were bigger, and they didn't fit quick they were just literally too big to fit under the wing. Exactly that that. That's it. That's it. Chris Brady the pilot says the solution. Boeing found was to move the engines forward and up on the wing intesting engineers found this change meant the engines themselves were generating a little lift and that in turn could pitch the nose of the plane up. Boeing was still they couldn't put the engines anywhere else. So they had to put in an official system to lower the nose. And that's what the system is. The m caste system is the automated flight control system. We have heard so much about recently. Investigators are looking at whether it malfunctioned in the lion aircrash Indonesia last fall as well as the airlines crash this month Boeing is working on a soft. Update that would address problems with the system and make it easier for pilots to override it originally. Boeing hadn't even told pilots this system existed or explained that it could automatically kick in based on data from a single sensor. Chris Brady says all this leaves him disappointed in Boeing, but still confident the problems can be fixed. It's very sad chapter for the seven three seven, but it will continue to be a very safe aircraft. Overall, nerve, no doubt. There will be some three seven's flying stealing thirty forty years time. Bob bogus. Remember the engineer who helped build the prototype today. He's the caretaker for that prototype which lives in the museum of flight in Seattle. I I don't think a lot of people realize how personal these airplanes are to most people at Boeing and any accident that all just feels like a stab to the heart really everybody realizes. And I'm not speaking for Boeing, I've been retired. A long time. But everybody working on these things realizes that people are climbing on these things with their families and their entrusting their lives to people. They never met which is the us, and it's very depressing. When there's an accident any accident still Babu gash also believes the 737 has plenty of years left in this airplane will avow lived my entire career and probably for sure outlive me too. So a vote of confidence from a man who has been there since day. One dissenting vote came today from Indonesia which announced it intends to cancel its order for the Boeing seven thirty-seven max for now Boeing has more than forty six hundred orders stacked up to the max leaving with plenty of work ahead, both building planes and rebuilding the trust of the flying public.

"Welcome to the Rick Edelman show, I'm RIC Edelman, and we indeed have great news. Once again, massive numbers of new jobs created in the country in January, according to the federal government, we added over three hundred thousand new jobs. Very very exciting. This is the one hundred months in a row that we've added jobs to the economy. This is really rather exciting. Not only are we adding jobs to the economy wages are rising as well. So more people are working and more working people are making more money than ever wages rose three percent from a year ago. According to the bureau of labor statistics department of labor, really exciting. And in fact, you're feeling pretty good yourself. You're feeling at least better than you were in December. According to the spectrum investor confidence index it rose in January. Now, we all know, why don't we in January? The stock market did just fine. For the first month of this year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose eight percent. So sure people are feeling pretty good. By the way, not only did the investor confidence index rise in January, thanks to the stock market's rise. Do you know what the confidence index did in December it fell to the lowest level in five years? And you remember what happened in December? Right. The stock market fell dramatically in fact, over the last three months of last year, the final quarter of the year, the stock market fell fourteen percent so picture this. The stock market goes down investor confidence goes down in January. The stock market rises an investor. Confidence rises are you following this as the stock market goes down investor confidence goes down as the stock market goes up investor confidence goes up in other words, people are up to mystic when prices are rising in there. Pessimistic. When prices are falling. You seem to feel that if the prices are going down they're going to keep going down, and therefore your confidence goes down. But if prices are rising, you think they're going to keep rising, and your confidence goes up doesn't make any sense. And in fact, if that's how you believe if you think, hey, g prices are going up. I feel good. I think I wanna buy or. Hey, oh my goodness. Prices are falling. I think they're going to keep falling. I think I'd better sell. You're simply going to be guilty of buying when they're high and selling when they're low causing yourself. To do the exact opposite of what investors are supposed to do causing yourself to actually lose money. Even though the markets themselves might be doing just fine. And here's the biggest trap of all. Here's my biggest warning for you. The Dow Jones industrial average gained about eight percent in January. This was the best start to a year in thirty plus years, very exciting. And it's causing a lot of people to feel really good as evidenced by the spectrum investor confidence index it rose January. Here's the problem. Are you getting cocky are you getting confident? Are you getting up domestic is it encouraging? You is it motivating you to buy investments to invest in the stock market to buy stock mutual funds or exchange traded funds. Well, think about this for a minute. The Dow Jones industrial average gained eight per. Percent roughly in January. If it keeps up that pace. The stock market will end the year with a gain of about one hundred percent as they try that one again, really, do you honestly believe that the stock market is going to double this year? Do you really think that if someone were to call you on the phone and say, hey, I think you should put your money into a stock mutual fund because it's going to double in value? It's going to gain about one hundred percent this year. You would know that's nonsense. You wouldn't believe such a sales pitch. In other words, we've got to temporarily Suzy Azam we've got to recognize that although January was fabulous month. Can't possibly be sustained. Now that doesn't mean you should sell. It doesn't mean the prices are gonna fall. It just means that the pace of growth isn't going to be as fabulous in the next eleven months as it was in the first month. That's all I'm saying, I'm not saying that the stock market will end lower than where it is. Now, not at all, I think based on everything we're seeing an economic data based on inflation rates and interest rates and unemployment rates based on the corporate profitability based on manufacturing indexes and supply indexes of purchasing managers at companies based on housing data based on automobile data. There's no reason to believe that we're gonna see a decline in the stock market, of course, past performance doesn't guarantee future results. But I just don't think we're going to see a one hundred percent gain either. So don't be surprised if this fabulous start isn't going to be sustained during the year. Oh, there's one other message. Wanna convey to you while the Dow Jones industrial average gained eight percent in January. The Russell two thousand gained thirteen percent in the month of January. Now, what's the difference between the two and why does it matter? Well, the Dow is an index that consists of thirty of the biggest companies in America each from different industrial sector to provide an estimate of how overall big companies and overall the economy is doing gals up eight percent. The Russell two thousand isn't just thirty stocks. It's two thousand stocks most of them small companies, not the big huge conglomerates. Like, you find in the Dow, but small companies and the Russell two thousand index is up thirteen it's up dramatically more than the Dow itself. What's so interesting about that? It's the exact opposite of what happened in two thousand eighteen. And in fact, it's the opposite. What happened in two thousand seventeen small-cap stocks? Usually if we're long periods of time, small companies were called small cats small companies make more money than big companies didn't happen last year. Didn't happen the year before but it's happening now. And the reason I cite this is that if you have a properly diversified portfolio, you probably own more than just big stocks, you probably own mid sized stocks as well and small stocks. And if you do if you own small companies middle companies and big companies, you might have noticed that the small companies didn't do as well. And it might have encouraged you to get out of them to sell them. Well, if you had done that at the end of two thousand eighteen you would have missed out on their thirteen percent gain in the Russell two thousand in the past thirty days from the month of January. So the message here is clear we need to make sure we're maintain. Winning a diversified portfolio and equally important a long-term investment. Horizon. Don't take the attitude that because it didn't work out well in the last month of the last quarter or the last year or the last several years that it therefore will never work again because that's not how the financial markets operate. And therefore, we need to recognize that no matter how good we begin the year that doesn't mean the year is going to stay that way for a long time. Hey, you know, what else is coming on this week? It's Valentine's Day. And I want to give you a couple of digital dating terms that you might not be aware of since Valentine's Day. Did you ever hear of ghosting you might have? That's when you're seeing someone and all of a sudden, they disappear they stopped responding to your tasks or your emails. They don't return phone calls. They ghost you. You might have heard of that phrase. But what about breadcrumbs? This occurs. When someone sends you flirtatious text messages or they show their affection on social media through likes or comments or direct messages. But they're not really asking you out on a date. And if they do plans are never confirmed, and they're often cancelled it's called breadcrumbs how about micro cheating small online acts of emotional attraction. Without telling your partner micro cheating or how about love bombing. An explosion of affections all at once. How about benching or you know, what it means in sports when you get benched well on dating you go on several dates, but all of a sudden, they don't ask you out again you've been benched and finally the slow fade. It's similar to ghosting. But it's a lot more subtle instead of going to the next level moving in together meeting, the parents, it just stays superficial. I'm mentioning all of this. So that you.

There's a few different ways to acquire one of it is through like an interval fund and by doing that you're able to buy professionally managed diversified real estate the same tax advantages a private ownership. And yields and returns closer to private ownership. But you can redeem it back to the issuing company every quarter. So it doesn't trade on the secondary market.

Averaging right now, I've done it in the past and it's worked out, but I'm nervous that the market will keep going down. Well, you know, what value averaging is? But for those that don't value averaging is essentially like dollar cost averaging except that what you're doing is. You're building an expectation into what you expect your portfolio to generate. And if it generates more than that, you sell a little bit off the top if it generates less than that, you add into it to get to let's say you wanna ten percent return every year will last year, you got a minus three or four. That means you add fourteen percent to your investment portfolio this year to ensure that it went up by ten follow and vice versa. Well, this fellow obviously followed me for a long time. I think it's a great time to be doing value averaging we've had extreme volatility, but the market a peak in October of two thousand eighteen it's come down a little bit. Since then sure why not Mark do some value averaging. But it's an interesting concept, I've gotten emails from people over the years that have actually done that over years because I've been talking about it I've written about it and so forth. And it's my own little version of value. Averaging there was a fellow that wrote a book on it years ago. I kinda stole it from him.
