Is Racism in America Causing the High Rate of Black Fatherlessness?

"The moment that we all of a sudden de-emphasized fathers being in the home and subsidized fatherless-ness. We saw all these other trends increase so in the one thousand nine right before the civil rights act passed about twenty four percent of black children. Were born without a father. Now it's upwards of seventy percent you guys can look at the washington examiner. It's seventy seven percent. Let's say it's sixty five percent so something has to explain that forty point increase back yet. Just let me finish yet. And and it's not necessarily that. America got more racist. It could be the cocaine thing which you know is a common issue. It could be operations of all these things. But a forty point increase. I would point to a culture. Fatherless-ness really bad government run public schools and then subsidizing behavior. That isn't good so there are a few things that i can agree with you. On first of all having to people in your house to raise you pretty essential You absolutely this is undeniable While i don't believe in shaming single parents even if they're single parent did mrs bad decision making. It's still good you need. It's up in this economy one parent honestly but with that being said there has been research shown that the rate of black fatherless-ness is somewhat over exaggerated in large part because that number only applies to married fathers so husbands raising their children. It turns out when you account for unmarried. Black couples taking care of their kids. The numbers actually rise to those just think just below white couples. I think there was an article on that. I don't know if i remember sought advice but attracts back. Some really big study. That was done back in two thousand sixteen So that's one point but you are right. There are perverse incentives for example Many welfare Stipulations cut off With a shared income which is only a few thousand dollars per year higher than the necessary. Cutoff for the single income. Meaning that if you're a single mom You can apply for the welfare just fine but then if you get married or otherwise file jointly you get you go above the cap for welfare. This is a horribly program undeniably ended incentivizes bad destructive

Q2-2021 Biotech Earnings, Commercial-Stage Biotech Suffers

"And the first company. I want to talk about is by jin which is a real favorite of mine ticker symbol b. I believe and they're sitting at a fifty billion dollar market cap and what we heard is that they announced q to revenue of two point. Seven eight billion dollars and this is compared to twenty twenty cutie revenue of three point six eight billion so huge decline there and that is mostly due to a decrease in their ms revenue of twenty four percent year over year. And if you remember. When i went through the biogen episode i did. The majority of their revenue comes from their ms franchise and since the lawsuit against by jin was in favor of the generic companies including mylan they have launched generic versions of tech der which are now at risk because by genus filed an appeal. And what this means is that these generic companies are going to be able to sell their generic version of tech era at the risk of biogen winning on appeal in which case Going to be able to litigate against them for patent infringement. So during this time at which we don't know what the status of the appeal is gonna be biden's gonna start losing. Ms franchise market share pretty quickly to these generic companies. So we're starting to see this now with these abysmal. M s numbers now. The company did increase their guidance for the rest of the fiscal year. Only by about two hundred to three hundred million dollars so not a huge amount but they said that. This is due to better-than-expected ms sales. So who knows what's going on there but really the bulk of the call was the excitement around the addy home commercialization efforts and now just to say the amount of home revenue was only like one or two million dollars so very much a drop in the pan not very impressive so far. But it's because all of these infrastructure efforts need to take place in order to get hospitals up and running in order to treat patients

Los Angeles Pilots Program to Try 'Colorblind' Foster Care Decisions

"Los angeles department of child and family services is launching a pilot program called blind removal. Now this is the government agency that deals with child welfare issues. Dcfs is the government agency that also makes decisions about whether or not a child should be removed from home Based on the safety of that household. Now i i wanna tell you more about this blind removal pilot program because what it has to do with is the overrepresentation of children of color within the foster care system meaning the children who are typically removed from these households happen to have parents who are black or latino and it looks as though there might be issues with some implicit bias in the decisions that are made so blind. Removal is Meant to take the race component out of it as social workers are deliberating in regard to whether or not they remove a child from a home. So i wanna tell you how the numbers look right now so you can understand why this is a problem. So for instance. Seven percent of children in los angeles county are black while twenty four percent of those removed from their homes from last april to this march were black according to the la county department of children and family services. Twenty percent of children in the county are white with twelve percent of those removed. So as you can see there's an overrepresentation of black children. Being taken out of their household moved out of their households now. Three quarters of children removed from their homes in la. Two thousand twenty. Where either black. Or latino

"There's misreading the numbers then. There's yesterday's note from goldman sachs analyst rod hall. He and his missed expectations in the december quarter by a lot missing march. Twenty twenty four missing in june. Okay missing in september fine but the amount he missed nine months into the pandemic look. I'm not saying i could do it. But i'm also not getting paid. Who knows how many tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars to do it. Apple's read auto in part of a note whole wrote according to his firm's data. Pc shipments for the december quarter hit eighty nine point seven million units up twenty six percent year on year beating the bank's expectation by twenty one percent consumer side sales. Were up twenty. Seven percent beating their expectation by eighteen commercial. Sales were up. Twenty five percent beating their expectation by twenty four percent while he's apparently good at being wrong about computers. in general. We've come to know hall over the past couple of years for being wrong about apple in particular. Didn't used to be that way. Not sure what changed whatever it was. He doesn't appear to be changing back quoting his note. Apple rose thirty five percent year on year. End up with the sheriff fifteen percent up. One percentage point year-on-year that we note that. I'm wanting max where likely in short supply in the corridor. Quoting another part of his note. Hp lost share due to supply constraints while apple grew slightly faster than the market driven. In part by. Its new am one. Max looking ahead. We expect this general p strength to persist in the first half but we can in the second half driven by reopening as well as tougher compares to be fair hall said basically the same thing in a note back in december still do atypically typically apple three dot did not list halls rating and price target on apple shares. The last mentioned the boat was in the wake of apple's last call when hall stuck to his cell rating on apple shares. He did up as priced at that time. Though from eighty dollars to eighty three dollars since then shares have gotten as high as one hundred thirty seven dollars though. They've spent most of their time in the one hundred.

This is our first recording. You and i in the in twenty twenty one. Yeah it's going to be Should be really interesting year. I we it has to be different. I don't know better but it has to be something has to change. I'm i'm really hoping for better and speaking of changes you're talking about that today a little bit. We're going to talk a little bit today about Proposed changes under the new administration and things that people ought to be thinking about nassir panicking about yet but just thinking about because of the lightning what we could see some changes dealing with the last couple of years all right and what kind of changes are we talking about specifically today. Well there's there's kind of a basset of multiple different ones. We've you may or may not have heard about the we're going to be seen some increases in taxes or some individuals and some of that depends on what happens with the so called trump tax break of twenty eighteen. One of the things have benefited everybody. That was included in there was a was the twelve percent tax bracket and that's been really beneficial to absolutely everybody who pays taxes and they're talking about on reversing those trump those tax bills. Which would mean that all of us. Potentially you know three percent more in taxes. Ghana still up on. These things are all in the air. But that's one of the first things we look at. We started talking about. How is this going to affect all of our clients in general or just individuals in general taxes. And that's the first thing that i was thinking about the other. Now that we know where georgia falls is that we could potentially be seeing other attached changes that can affect how you've been planning for your retirement or for the passing of your assets the next generation one of the ones that i am most interested in keeping an eye on for our clients is somewhat People either they've heard about it. They have no idea how this works. And it's called a step up in basis that you heard of this before i have but i don't quite understand all of it okay. So let's start with that with the basic idea. Let's say that Your parents bought calf dozen stocks in the sixties. And and they've held them ever since then. Well if your parents died in leave you those stocks you might be able you would be able to today. Turn around and sell those and pay no taxes on the gain you know. Maybe it's a million dollars with the gains okay. Yeah yeah yeah so i. If my parents were to sell them they'd have to pay yet. But if i if i inherit them then i don't that's correct. Well okay. that sounds good basis and you imagine people who are retired been retired for a while. who have some of these positions stock positions. If up well hail hold onto it. And if i die owning my kids will have to pay taxes on part of their narrates not a bad strategy. If you didn't need the money yeah problem now is all we're doing now is kicking the can down the road because if that does get refilled and that is really high on the list That can change. How you're going. You know how you plan on passing those assets so the kids. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah yeah and i was gonna say it seems to be almost a double edged sword there. Because if you're saying that they may change that and then if i in twenty years let's say i passed these stocks down to my kids and they have to pay taxes on them. We've we've already kind of seen the writing on the wall. That taxes are most likely going to be higher because we have to pay for all the debt that happened this last year with kobe. The relief and everything else in the trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars so that really changes the game not only does it bring those taxes back it. they'll probably higher. Don't you think absolutely. Oh boy i had this conversation with one of my clients In december and and in that situation they had About two million dollars in capital gains. And what was trying to get him. Understand was the taxes weren't going to get any cheaper and and we were better off to take the beating at which is approximately twenty four for them would have been about twenty four percent in taxes taxes any real by the stocks back but if pay taxes on it because it won't be cheaper in four years to pay the taxes mondo stocks if the gains continued to go. So it's it's a lot more complex than than just the the idea that you're right. It's going to get more experience so we know it is. It has to yeah not even last year. I mean we've been we've been spending money like drunken sailors for

New York City Covid Vaccine Disparities Revealed in ZIP Code Data

New York City Covid Vaccine Disparities Revealed in ZIP Code Data

"One of the big challenges in distributing the coach vaccine is trying to ensure that they don't disproportionally go to the most communities and as more people get vaccinated in the united states. We're getting more and more data about who's getting their shots. I and the data coming out of cities is well. It's painting a fairly consistent picture in the neighborhoods with the highest death rates from cova which tend to be poorer and more black and brown folks. Fewer people are getting vaccinated by contrast in wider more affluent neighborhoods. Vaccination rates tend to be higher even though a smaller percentage of people in those neighborhoods have lost their lives the virus. So here's an example map in new york city. We have data by zip code there. We should note. The same dynamic has also played out in washington. Dc and other cities so in this section of manhattan's upper east side. That's a wealthy neighborhood. There have been one hundred sixty six deaths from covid per hundred thousand people so far in that zip code sixteen percent of adults vaccinate which is great. That's good we want people to be back but now let's look at say brooklyn's east new york neighborhood much much poor much much much less white in that soco there have been a staggering eight hundred and thirty seven deaths per one hundred thousand people. Think about that. It has been hit so so much harder by the virus but in that neighborhood only five percent of adults have been fully vaccinated compared to the sixteen percent of the upper east side. Now the city not breakdown vaccine recipients by race or account for the percentage of people in a given zip code were eligible but again the broad picture. Here's pretty clear. See playing out across the city and across the country in fact in some poor neighborhoods. Only two percent of adults are fully vaccinated. Well vaccination rates are fourteen fifteen sixteen percent and richer neighborhoods. This is a huge in central problem to solve and discuss it on join. Shell gave stolberg new york times. Washington correspondent covering health policy has been writing about the vaccine rollout specifically so let's just start with the phenomenon. I want to sort of check against myself here that this is something that's happening. That's showing up data that is being produced around the country. It's not just a particularity of new york. No no this is absolutely happening around the country and you can see it in the cdc's national data. I think nationally last week African americans who account for more than eighteen percent of the population were eleven percent of those vaccinated. And we're seeing in disparities around the country here in washington where i am We had a situation where people from wealthy white neighborhoods were going into black neighborhoods to go to clinics that primarily serve underserved people to get vaccinated and it is creating a real disparity and it is completely contradictory to what president biden has said he wants which is a vaccine and a covid response that is centered on racial equity. So there it seems that there's a few factors at play here for why this is a it seems to me that there's a demand issue right is sort of people's willingness and i think we can get to that later. The first thing just seems to me it's one of those situations where a certain amount of social capital connections time or resources to other people to go through the logistics of the planning and the websites use tending to advantage. More affluent. folks is. That is that sort of your understanding of what's driving this yes. I think there's two things that are driving it in one is exactly what you say. Which is more apple and people tend to have the resources to the computers savvy the time frankly transportation to be able to get vaccinated but another big reasons vaccine heston san. We know that people of color particularly african americans are more hesitant than whites to be vaccinated in part because of the legacy of systemic racism and Government experiments like the horrific experiment that still linger in the mind. So there is that issue of hesitancy that the government is going to have to overcome. It wants to see people of color vaccinated. Yeah this is a december pull from. Ap now that's this is know almost two months old now but we we saw huge has seen the beginning huge racial disparity in terms of folks. You know fifty three percent of white people saying they're gonna get vaccinated while in twenty four percent of black folks thirty four percent of hispanic hispanic respondents now. Those numbers have changed a little bit. Even though there are still racial disparities out there examples of places where this is being dealt with forthrightly in a way that is that is sort of reintroducing a kind of equity here well i think that's hard to know in one reason that's hard to know is that the government doesn't really have great data on race the people who are vaccinated but more broadly one of the states. That is actually a really good job. Back stating across the board is west. Virginia and it has back stated i think eighty three percent of its vaccines have been administered in. It's far ahead of most states in terms of effective and quick backseat distribution.

You and i were chatting Earlier today and when we were talking about twitter and one of the things i said was twitter just seems like one of those companies. That can't get on a hot streak. They really can't string together. Three or four or more Really great strong quarterly reports in a row. The performance over the past year sort of goes against you know what i just said. But how optimistic do you think. Shareholders should be about twenty twenty one. I think twitter is really interesting because we have seen you know a return with advertisers. You see that. Advertisers are choosing to spend money on ecommerce on social platforms. That's where they're going to get the best return on their advertising dollars and so. I think that we haven't really figured out where twitter is in how effective it is for advertisers and users. You know it's clear when you're on instagram. You could be shopping for clothes when you're on pinterest. You should could be shopping for home decor. I think it's hard for people to make a clear connection between people who are scrolling through politics twitter to know you know. What are you now buying. And so for an advertiser. What is the of being on this specific platform versus many other platforms. And i think you know that's what we need to keep looking for an understanding four when it comes to twitter as why do advertisers need to go to that platform and it's

"Tony Fauci update hang on for that I'll give that to you in just a second no it's not black a replay the Julia Roberts interview with him okay seriously though we just went through some of the states that had the biggest jumps in roadway fatalities last March versus this March as compared to last March in remember volume way down way down in volume the actual number of miles driven dropped almost nineteen percent across America this March versus last March okay I went through some of the states that have the biggest jump states with decreases notable ones anyway included Hawaii thirty two percent fewer fatalities this March the last March Idaho twenty eight percent drop Oregon twenty four percent drop Maryland thirteen percent drop South Carolina twelve percent drop I was thirteen percent drop Wisconsin fifteen percent drop fifteen percent decrease fifteen percent fewer roadway travel fatalities in our state this March as compared to last March now why you know the answer but you taxpayers have already answered it I alluded to it at the top if you have fewer cars lower volume you have fewer accidents but the accidents you have are more severe again nationally it jumped forty percent what does that mean it means in all likelihood people are going faster and when I'm no scientist I'm no mathematician I'm no physics expert by any means if you are going fast in the vehicle and you collide with another vehicle or something else if there is a collision on the roadway and you're going faster than you should be the odds of there being a fatality at the end of the accident are higher than not so this tells us that would you would I have been hypothesizing over the last six seven eight nine weeks or so that people out there are driving faster in one way shape or form it it does support that and unfortunately unfortunately it supports it with the worst possible statistic fatalities the president and CEO of the national safety council her summation of the numbers for March disturbingly we have open lanes of traffic in an apparent open season on reckless driving right now in the midst of a pandemic in crisis we should take it as our civic duty to drive safely if we won't do it for ourselves we should do it for our first responders are law enforcement and our health care workers who are rightly focused on coronavirus patients and should not be overwhelmed by preventable car crashes that's another good point so I I shot an email to us some folks at the Wisconsin department of transportation I'm just curious if if they have any more you know specific numbers and maybe not for April yet but they might have some numbers now for March we know the the Wisconsin fatality rate in March fifteen percent lower as I say this March the last March it doesn't mean that we Wisconsinites about walk ins well you know we're surrounded by the most polite and down orderly drivers I mean I I saw it I know many of you saw it maybe you still see it in some parts with there's a light volume I just felt again feeling anecdotal story that people were driving more recklessly on the roads and unfortunately the fatality rate across the country would back that up not so much here in Wisconsin so that is the good news of the wrong not rooting for more fatalities come on now and neither are you but there is something to be said for the fact that all in all Americans were not maybe V. smartest or the most disciplined when they have to go out and about let's see if I get some specific Wisconsin numbers will continue to track this and follow this I'm just really interested in trying to find out at what we'll see maybe we can get some some numbers in terms of you know how many speeders were pulled over and and law enforcement or or traffic related stops things like that but I would imagine in some ways a lot of ways it would go down but I'm interested to find out how in Wisconsin specifically for you get so specific is here in southeastern Wisconsin one of the numbers bear out here because like I say cheers heck felt when I was out there driving you know some of them that I was but when I was out there that people just were not as they were not was courteous if ever courteous they were not as safe quite frankly on the roads going too fast we too fast and unfortunately in many cases across this country it with their lives seven twenty three I'll give you that phone she update and then I want to double back to what we heard from the president today as he visited that ventilator Ford factory in Michigan that's coming up in just a moment right here to order us WTMJ nights.

F. our efforts at the social distancing stuff so it's we've already changed the future on that but I'm just saying this could be that's why it's it's all could be it maybe some of it is the media wanted to fear monger the hell out of you because there despite the fact that we're in a pandemic despite the fact that we have a serious situation with with China that now the U. K. is all rattling their saber about saying there's going to be a reckoning other countries are starting to be a lot about it despite the fact that all of this is occurring you have many in media a lot of Democrats the majority that are still only how can we get more power how can we use this to get more power I'm gonna tell you you better be damn glad that this was a trouble condom United Obama Connie when the set and you better be damn glad that the leaders are running on solar power so so don't forget about it it's gonna I mean it is what it is freaking out about that when you get all worked up over doesn't change it doesn't change for the better but we are in a good we're in a good position where I actually I'm not concerned about the economic trajectory so long as the administration keeps making good decisions with light which I think they've been doing don't listen to the media on that because half the time they're blasting him for acting too early on travel restrictions from hot spot and then they blast him for the job that governors fail to do whether it is as we told you yesterday Andrew Cuomo and the ventilators that were stockpiled in the warehouse and Andrew Cuomo says they're not stockpiled in the warehouse we have a bunch of in a letters in a warehouse that's the same thing and also here's something else I wanted to share with you that now there's they're doing studies on this but this I thought it was interesting enough that I wanted included included here for you he studied there so there's two studies going on right now the first is that China is actually now and this comes by way well couple places including Reuters they were they are studying one thousand five hundred forty one symptom free a corona virus positive patients and they all I think that they only have been talking about this is an only released it to the world because they are getting their **** kicked right now optically and numb and the perception appalling and everything else so they had they had these people under observation and they are studying to give an idea as to whether you have basically what a symptomatic looks like and and how widespread it is and this is according to health commission data and they said that and I still think they're lying about their numbers I don't repeat the numbers that China puts out there because I think it's B. S. it's B. S. I don't trust them for nothing and to me and I'm not the only there are actually some classical liberals in some left leaning meant media outlets they're saying the same thing because they're intellectually honest so you cannot trust at all these numbers that they're putting out so next up is the second study is how much of the amount of coronavirus have you heard about this this study the amount of coronavirus that that that you are infected with and this is a weird headline could decide whether or not you suffer mild or severe symptoms now I didn't go there to it it's talking about your initial viral load so how much you pick up when you contract it apparently they're they're not convinced yet but they say that having a high viral load gives the **** jumpstart and raises the risk of a patient's immune system becoming overloaded so they said that someone who touches the door handle could ultimately end up with milder symptoms than someone who say grossly inhales ape an infected person coughs and they said that it gives the immune system more time to get a handle on the infection before gets overwhelmed and symptoms start to show and I'm not a virologist understudy infectious diseases I don't know if this is like a common place but I've never heard like if you are exposed to a little slow I don't really mean squat in terms of how severe the flu is that you have then they say the RNA shedding isn't really a live virus is just like a pro team thing that that summer plan now for the current events I mean it's a lot I mean it's active but that's and when the infected that's like in the beginning stages so that's like if you're looking at a at a fourteen day span that's in the earlier days they said the moment the study that we had and I had that like dividend last dot com the in the moment you have a symptom and you start it then it starts I forget how many copies of RNA it is per milliliter of the to give you this yeah yeah yeah in your way in your liquids whatever yeah my understanding of it was that it was a protein that has to do K. it's not really a live virus right it's something that the RNA itself is just a copy of the virus right right right that is essentially your body will react to but it's the proteins that attach to it has to do with you decay in order for it to go away so your body has to continually yeah keep fighting it so I guess it kind of makes sense that the more that you get from someone shedding the yeah for severe your symptoms would be because your body is dealing with more copies I guess that sense this is where that it's not the same for any other virus though that I know of I think again I'm not like an expert in infectious diseases but I thought that was I did I did find that interesting I wanted to share that with you a couple of other things here the above above the thanks to talk about that that perhaps what sort of bill would look like the number rate of infection some are star are art work I know that last year and last night's press conference he said that the peak is going to be about a week or two weeks which that makes sense doctor found she was saying that that this actually could come back we could see another wave maybe perhaps this fall now he was he said he wasn't sure but he said if the bay had behavioral and then you said a whole bunch of infectious diseases stuff that was like mmhm so there are graphs that are trying to determine when the P. the pandemic will peak in your state and they say that New York might just be ten days away before the apex of its operate Florida they said it's not gonna come around for another month and they are they're studying the the route that how the number of infections are reported daily they're basing their their models on this they said Florida still another month away they said their peak in Florida is gonna be like may third that's now that's what the models are this could all be affected by social distancing but what we're going to see in two weeks is what we're doing right now just like what we're seeing right now is what we did two weeks ago that's I got a look at it so a couple of other things to touch on as well I we were also going to talk about some civil liberties are really seriously being violated their number of people number of lawmakers have stepped over a line now and we got to be very very attentive to the summer gonna get into that pretty heavy duty I I do think that it's good that the administration yesterday released a statement out along with a DHS that gun shops are considered essential businesses that should remain open as other businesses that are retail that are classified as non essential they they they have to close now gun control groups are mad and they said it's a policy that put puts profits over public health as they gobble up all of the money from the billionaires that fund them and so you guys can sit down it said you would have a discussion of our profits over public health and let's talk about some of the decisions from the part of politicians that you supported that actually lead and and that and helped contribute to the

"You just tune in our cities some light on retirement why we have a retirement crisis but what you can do to get out of that that mold where you can retire you gotta be able to create income during your accounts during your working years to have enough for retirement and not draw down those assets and I was talking about how a lot of people are just looking to leave a legacy for their family for our kids and our grandkids also self directing and I know that some of the stuff that we're gonna get into on this segment and now you know I got it just ask you you can we bring up a lot of new terms you have speaking investing there was one last week I just can't remember what it is we talked about bullish bearish or radiation or right is your right and be this week we have a new term it's called health health health health in I don't I don't know what that is I think it looks really elaborate a little bit more but you know we a lot of people want better financial health like you said in the last segment and you know what it's all about is when you have better financial health you take matters into her own hands and you do it yourself but you got to learn that skill how are you helping people get to that point where they're comfortable and also confident it created our goals yeah and and that's the key word confidence it is is key in in you can only do that if you know what you're doing it's understandable that you would shy away from or fear something that you don't know the that makes sense as a he is a human being we'd we shy away from what looks like it's scarier or painful so learning they're they're having the right education it is easy to do not look the the internet is available to all of us trading platforms are sophisticated the knowledge is there but the real key is to is to get the knowledge along with the skills to use it in that skill as a process that's that that takes time it's a process that you build over time they do it with somebody who can mentor you and give you this port that's what we do that's really where the online trading academy I think really shines is that we are excellent at a kind of experts at at developing skills helping you build that skill we provide live trading sessions for our students for the rest of their life so they can continue to build those skills but right now this is one of the most exciting times in the market that we have seen a but for a lot of people it's kind of scary because they don't know how to take advantage of these big moves up and down in their little concern now because the market is moved up so much so what do they do just do they keep investing in those who have put more money in the market or should they get out well if you understand what you're doing you can number one you can keep your money in the market you can keep investing but you can be protected and options are one way of doing that it's like having an insurance policy on your portfolio so you really don't have to fear what the market is doing just look at these opportunities that are out there almost on a daily basis but I understand the right strategies to use and that's all part of the the the core strategy that we teach our students it shows you how to identify the entry or exit point regardless of what the market is doing and then how much profit you're going to get then you realize that with a platform that we have for all of our students call click this is like this is a tremendous advantage that we have provided to our students it's a platform where he is actually like taking you by the hand and walking you down the proper steps for every trade or investment ever the set up for that and then when you go through the steps it's going to tell you that this is a good trade you should take this traitor no this is not a good trade how great would it be for you to be told by a platform that you should not be taking that trade is a bad trait keeps you out of your own way in in do you know you're you're the you're you're the biggest enemy to yourself and being successful get the education is there learn the skills to use the education and then make no that you have the support so that if anything ever becomes a question to you you you have a worry a place to go to get help for you have somebody to contact the can help you kind of work through those those times and that's key I like that you brought that that that up this far as the platform click that online trading academy has because you have to learn the skill well you have to have a platform to place your trades and make your investments but it's it's important like you said to have something to guide you through that process because the education is actually integrated into that platform that's correct and then you can just take the emotions out of it do what's on your plan so she tried to plant exact and that's all it is the end and it grows with you as you as you become more sophisticated the the click platform becomes more sophisticated for you it it's just an unbelievable a platform that that we are providing for our students NO I mentioned before health health you know who you know what that is yeah well I'm really very just just talking about the health of your your body you know your medical health and actually your financial health can impact that I I read this where it confidence in investing in in in your finances which again comes from preparation cation improves happiness by twenty four percent well being by thirty six six percent it reduces stress by nineteen percent so there is that that association there and you think about it what really causes stress in your life and in one of them the biggest things is your financial situation get to even learn to do this in a waiver that should not cause stress this should be a comfortable thing for you you learn the confidence you learn the comfort by understanding how the markets really work how you can take advantage of them and then also know that you're never alone that you always have a support mechanism a place you can come to get help or someone you can contact that is one of the I think one of the biggest advantages that our students at the only trading academy always mention to us is that they never feel alone they always know they can get help if they need it and that's amazing how your financial health can help your health health because to me it it it I I don't know us that's all thanks for the which is a health bill I did yes your view full stats today and you know a lot of people are looking to create have a better financial health in in and now we know that it helps your your normal your body health just for mentality stuff like that and if you're looking to have a better lifestyle

"Openly declared that he's thinking about stepping into the democratic run to become the candidate to go up against trump now what's interesting about that is it is ninety days approximately ninety days before the first caucus where we start learning who is going to be the ultimate candidate and if we've got Bloomberg same with just ninety days left I'm thinking about getting back into this because he was in it for a little while wait a while ago what does that say about the Democratic Party is that they're desperate that people everywhere there's no they have no direction I think unanimously to party should be against anybody trying to join at the last minute because what are you going to actually bring to the table I think all ideas and also out on the board you have to be trump what is this new guy going to do and president trump is an anomaly every billionaire millionaires not gonna be the stepping in and somehow be a hero this is only a once in a lifetime same as trump is a hero he's actually he wrote to me I I think you I think you save America if you axe me but this guy is going to have to have a lot of Mexicans from DD at name recognition people already know we was that actually liked him before he decided to run as a Republican he supported Democrats for years and so this guy's not going to be able to pull it off you just don't have the juice well when we look at who's running right now we look at the numbers here in Arizona the question was if the democratic presidential primary were being held today who would you vote for Arizona right now has biting that twenty four percent Warren at fifteen percent and Sanders at sixteen percent if we look at the numbers for I awhile which of these Democrats will be your first choice in the Iowa caucuses we've got Warren at twenty two Sanders at nineteen a bite me in at seventeen so it's the same Canada it's just a little mixed up there that sounds like Joe Biden's not too concerned about Bloomberg coming into the race he welcomes him trump on the other hand he's coming right out and say this guy is not going to do well I think is the difference between real versus fake okay trump is given a fair evaluation on and just keep in a one hundred think is not gonna win any to get hurt he harbor until Biden Joe Biden is being politically correct it sounds good it makes you look good in July all are welcome everybody else played what I may come home and you want to win doesn't want him in the race he can't afford to have him in the race well he would not siphon off those votes from him and then all of a sudden Warner or whoever else jumps right ahead of them why because he's a unique component in the race Warren standards a lot the people that are front runners are far left Joe Biden seems to be a little bit more moderate and you have another person it appears to be moderate they're going to take your thunder Joe Biden is the only one in a race that connects to compete on his level although I believe that he has absolutely zero chance and I really do feel bad for because I think he's a little too he's a little too old for this I mean his eyes believe me it's fallen out he's fallen asleep you don't remember which state is in I mean that's not a good look brother in with Donald Trump is tweaking the way it in the seventies oh my goodness well to me I think this reflects very badly on the Democratic Party I think it shows that there is no clear front runner and there's nobody that strong enough right now to be able to really hold a candle next to trump or at least that's what the Democrats think that is your big story number three bring.
