    If you bought the S&P 500 into the sell-off after Obama’s election you’re up 28%.

    I must remember to make sure I get enough sleep tonight…

    Sleep allows brain to wash out junk (ScienceNews)

    “Sleep hoses garbage out of the brain, a study of mice finds.

    “The trash, including pieces of proteins that cause Alzheimer’s disease, piles up while the rodents are awake. Sleep opens spigots that bathe the brain in fluids and wash away the potentially toxic buildup, researchers report in the Oct. 18 Science.

    “The discovery may finally reveal why sleep seems mandatory for every animal. It may also shed new light on the causes of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

    “’It’s really an eye-opening and intriguing finding,’ says Chiara Cirelli, a sleep researcher at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The results have already led her and other sleep scientists to rethink some of their own findings….”

  3. A little late to the revelation. Cohen named Snowden a traitor in a column back in June, but like so many was much too accepting of the establishment spin – including a few lies – on this subject. Alas, now he’s simply struggling to say what Snowden is. Frankly, I think many if not most Americans would rank Snowden far above lawmakers regarding what they’ve done for – or to – the country.

    “I also wrote that ‘No one lied about the various programs’ Snowden disclosed. But then we found out that James Clapper did. The director of national intelligence was asked at a Senate hearing in March if “the story that we have millions or hundreds of millions of dossiers on people is completely false’ and he replied that it was. Actually, it was his answer that was ‘completely false.’”

    I’ve been saying this. if you want to live on the east coast in the NY, NJ area, then I am sure the job market feels lousy…If you come to the Midwest, there’s a job for you.

    big bet from 2007. about go belly up?

    also was a big bet that ‘the market’ would provide cheaper electricity. which has turned out to be a big failure. for a state that has natural gas in large volumes and uses lots of it to power it power plants, we have really high electricity prices.

    Updating Yale Model is good stuff and links to an excellent whitepaper called The Portfolio Whiteboard Project. Objectives based allocations are nothing new, I thought while reading that maybe fee only retail focused outfits using PIEtech or Wealthcare might actually be a little ahead of the game on that note
