Volatility is back! And it’s back in a big way. Indeed, since the revelation late Thanksgiving night that a new COVID-19 variant, dubbed “Omicron,” had been identified in South Africa, markets have been extremely nervous. That was evidenced by Friday’s huge holiday-shortened session selloff, where the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite both got smacked down […]

A few years back, the mainstream news was packed with the absurdity of a new game being played by adolescents called the “Tide Pod Challenge.” This “game” […]
Today, I watched something wonderful. That something was the second space flight of Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ company that is dedicated to making space travel a commercial venture for individual citizens, not just professional astronauts.
