Stock Trading


Stock Trading

Lately I’ve been doing a little research about the stock market and so far I’m finding it to be very interesting. I purchased a book about learning to invest in stock, and now I am getting familiar with some of the basic principles. Many of my friends gamble everyday on lottery tickets, sports, cards, etc., but none of them are interested in the stock market.

Even though my friends are not interested, I am strongly considering stock trading. I have read quite a few success stories about how lucrative stock trading can be. Online trading is the best option for me since I am always on the internet. Firstrade.com has a lot of information about stock trading and IRA accounts .

Before I start spending my hard earned cash on purchasing stock, I’m going to make sure that I have acquired as much knowledge as possible. I understand that investing can be risky, therefore I’m going to take this thing one step at a time. If I become a successful investor, I will gladly share the information with those whom are interested. If you are an online broker and would like to give us your opinion, don’t hesitate to comment below.

Marriage—> Divorce

Age Women Men
Under 20 years old 27.6% 11.7%
20 to 24 years old 36.6% 38.8%
25 to 29 years old 16.4% 22.3%
30 to 34 years old 8.5% 11.6%
35 to 39 years old 5.1% 6.5%

The divorce rate is America is almost 50%.  BUT,  between male AND female, the divorce rate is higher between the ages of 20-24.  Does that necessarily mean they got married TOO young.?

Number of Americans Without Health Insurance Rises

Americans without health insurance in the United States rose by a record 8.6 percent to 50.7 million! Now, that is a huge difference in the “no insurance book.”

A study from the Kaiser Family Foundation discovered that the cost of health care is quickly rising. Employees now pay 47 percent more for coverage now than they did in 2005 while employers are seeing increases of 20 percent.

 President Barack Obama signed a new health care legislation will eventually provide coverage to another 32 million people. However, many of the provisions in the law do not take effect until 2014.

SO, is health insurance on the job/period worth it to yu??

Malcolm X Daughter sentenced to 5 years of probation

According to CBS News: Malcolm X’s daughter has been sentenced to 5 years of probation for stealing the identity of an elderly family friend to run up big credit card bills. Prosecutors say Malikah Shabazz made $55,000 in illegal purchases.

Welp, if she wanted to be famous..That’s a GREAT  way to go about it!

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick

Kilpatrick recently said in a released statement. “I am beginning anew. I am looking forward. I have new dreams and aspirations. I have a new hope. My greatest desire is that my testimony will give anyone who will listen permission to dream of greatness and to push toward it even in the midst of failure.

Kilpatrick spent 14 months in prison from probation violation. on felony charges from text message scamming!

But, that’s NOT it, 

Kilpatrick still owes the city of Detroit more than $800,000 of the $1 million he promised to pay as part of his punishment for the text message scandal.

‘Confusion leads to violence between a black man and a Korean on a bus’

Seems like we as a people (not a black race, but mankind) have much work to do. That’s why it’s so important to have an understanding of cultures, and even take some foreign languages before visiting a culture that is foreign to yours. For certain things will confuse you, leading to some friction. Take this matter for example.

There was a case on a bus in Korea to which supposedly, this guy, who happens to be ‘black’ and a foreigner was talking really loud. The korean man told the girl who was screaming there (who’s his girlfriend), as you will see in the video “Niga Jom Joyonghi Halago Haejwo” ( “니가 좀 조용히 하라고 해줘”) which means “Could you tell him to lower his voice”. However, the guy, again whom happens to be ‘black’ began screaming and acting out because he thought the Korean guy called him a n*^@@er. Yet the truth is that in the Korean language, Niga (니가) means “you” and not the n-word so loosely used in America by many of our own people, despite the essence of it being derogatory towards ‘our’ kind. Again, that’s why it’s so important to know a little about the cultures to which you decide that you want to visit, as well as take up some language courses.

I lived in Korea for two years, teaching English as a Second Language. Though not required that I speak Korean, it was helpful towards building relationships with Koreans whom might not know how to speak English, or whom are shy speaking English to a foreigner. Having stated that, Niga in the Korean language is not a term used to call someone a derogatory name. However geomdong-i (검둥이), which means coon or darky is the term that a ‘racist’ Korean would use.

This is not a matter of black vs. Korean. However, it’s a matter of lack of understanding related to cultural differences and language.

Snoop Dogg ft. Uncle Chucc – Wonder What It Do video

I know you all are like this cat has been on some West Coast ish lately, from discussing Game’s album, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg & Tha D.P.G.C. (Tha Dogg Pound). Well you know….I just make it do what it do and capitalize off of all things ‘superb.’ So on that note, I present to you, after funky Snoop Dogg joint ft. Uncle Chucc, entitled ‘Wonder What It Do’ off Snoop Dogg’s Doggumentary album, produced by the legendary DJ Battlecat, one of Snoopy’s long time producers and hit maker behind many of those classic West Coast tracks. And you thought the West only has the Good Doctor (Dr. Dre).

This video features cameos from a few of your music and/or entertainment favorites alongside so beautiful women. Snoop’s Uncle Reo also makes an appearance in the video. There are also a few other things to look out for, such as a beautiful painting of the late Dogg Pound crooner, Nate Dogg. “Snoop why didn’t you invite me to the video shoot mayne?” The video looks like they all had a lot of fun.

Who Is Tyler The Creator: Best New Artist?


Who Is Tyler The Creator: Best New Artist?

So is this what hip hop has evolved to.  After so many conspiracy theories about rappers and secret societies, devil worshipers and hidden agendas, now the movement is more direct.  Instead of sending subliminal messages, now we have artist like Tyler The Creator.  An atheist rapper that doesn’t bite his tongue about anything.  Blasphemy lyrical content with Satanic symbols, the agenda is no longer hidden folks.  The devil is definitely at work!

The sad part about this movement is the fact that Tyler The Creator is actually a gifted MC.  His delivery is dope, he has lyrical content and character.  How the hell a hip hop artist win a VMA award without getting radio play in a city like Atlanta?  Is his radio rotation outside of the south that strong or is his Youtube campaign powerful enough to generate nationwide stardom?  I don’t know, do you?


‘Jay Z isn’t tripping off Lil Wayne’

Yes that’s right. Jay Z isn’t tripping off Lil Wayne and his ‘little’ disses. Why? Because Jay Z is a brand. Just ask music business mogul Steve Stoute about whether Mr. Sean ‘Jay Z’ Carter will respond to Lil Wayne’s diss. (It’s On, Lil Wayne ft. Drake & Jadakiss)

“For Jay-Z to do anything that resembles moving backwards right now would be insane,” Stoute explained in an interview. “And a Jay-Z beef is moving backwards. Jay is so much bigger than rap at this point. He’s a movement. And that’s where his head is at. That’s where his focus is. And no one is on his level, even worthy of him battling with. No one. So you probably won’t see that happen.” (You Heard That New)

Agreed? Will Jay Z respond to Lil Wayne? Even silently?

Stay tuned…

Lil Wayne ft. Tech N9ne & Andre 3000 (Interlude)

It’s getting hot in the rap biz. I’m talking about Jay Z and Kanye West having recently released the near platinum selling ‘Watch The Throne’ album and now the Young Money CEO and Cash Money Records spitter, Lil Wayne is expected to release another platinum album ‘Carter IV’.

Speaking of Lil Wayne, after releasing a bomb (It’s On) last Friday, due to the Carter IV being leaked, there’s another bomb exploding right now. This bomb, which will also appear on the Carter IV features Tech N9ne and 1/2 of Outkast, Andre 3000. Now when I first heard this track, I was like dangggggg, Tech N9ne is killing it and was hoping that 3000 was going to release a beast. However, I thought…it was alright and that I expected more. But being that 3000 is…….you know…3000, I definitely had to take another listen. And I must say, Dre got the skills that will have someone putting his verse on repeat over and over and over again. If you don’t believe me, listen for yourself.

Is yelling out SOO WOO in the rap game a trend now?
