It Bogle’s the mind, Feats of courage and LOL

It Bogle’s the mind, Feats of courage and LOL

  1. To paraphrase The NY Times 8/12/12, John Bogle states that this is the worst time for investors that he has seen.  He urges everyone to wake up because the financial system has been badly damaged and a Black Swan event, something apocalyptic, though small is real.  He further urges  return to fiduciary responsibility.  In an ideal world, people would do the right thing, but as many have noted before, enforceable laws , creating stability in the marketplace is required once again.
  2. Also quoted, in the NY Times, Gretchen Morgenson, requests that we mark 8/29 on our calenders because the SEC votes on limiting taxpayer exposure to teetering money market funds when the next financial meltdown occurs.  Mary Schapiro , Chairwoman of the SEC is committed to protecting taxpayers and intends to require funds to set aside capital to protect their share price.  But , to no one’s surprise, the fund managers strongly oppose any new capital requirements.  It’s better to “stick it”to the taxpayers once again, then live up to their fiduciary responsibility.
  3. (4 ) NY Democratic Representatives are skipping the Democratic Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.  They are Representatives: Bishop, Hochul, Owens and Slaughter… Takes courage to stay away from the circus, courage that should be admired and replicated by other Congressmen from both Parties.  After all, with Citizens United, this is no longer a “free” election.  We will be electing the best that money can buy.
  4. And in the LOL column, A toy that was included in our Tedx Bounty, Buckballs, has been taken off the market.  I thought these rare earth magnets were an interesting diversion and gave them to my creative 16 yr old grandson.  Though he has made many tetrahedrons and other interesting designs, it never occurred to me that this was a dangerous “object”.  Don’t blame the manufacturer , take personal responsibility and don’t give it to small kids or anyone who may choke on these balls.  We’re not outlawing bullets.  Why should we outlaw Buckyballs?

  2. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
