A lot of the news material is essentially clickbait targeted at generating revenues from people who have a very high sensitivity to a certain point of view and look for affirmation or confirmation.

Ray Dalio says the workplace is never going back to the same way it was pre-Covid

“The future of the workplace is going to be characterized by probably two things — customization and technology. We’ve been given a gift to be able to rethink what we are doing,” Dalio said Wednesday at CNBC’s @Work Summit. “I don’t think we are going to go back to the old world.”

'We'll go back to relatively normal:' Bridgewater's Dalio assesses U.S. outlook amid coronavirus

This guy is walking clickbait, always pontificating about things outside his narrow niche of macro trades. It's sad that QE-forever has made so many geniuses who can tell everyone what to do.

Colin Powell had been previously infected with Covid-19 and vaccinated as well

news.yahoo.com

Crucially, Powell suffered from a blood cancer known as multiple myeloma — precisely the kind of “immunocompromised” condition that experts have said from the start could lead to lower vaccine efficacy. In fact, the vaccines seemed to work especially poorly in patients afflicted with that type of cancer, even after a booster shot. (Powell also suffered from Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative condition.)

Analysis: Bitcoin futures highlight some pitfalls for new ETFs

"There is no free lunch, however," said Martha Reyes, head of research at digital asset prime brokerage and exchange BEQUANT.

"An ETF based on futures is not ideal as there is a cost to rolling into the futures contracts, given contango ... translating into underperformance versus the underlying asset," she said.

Traders typically roll over futures to switch from the short-term contract that is approaching expiration to another contract further out in months. This rollover entails a cost.

Inside Brazil’s Dangerous Battle Over Fake News
BY MARIANA PALAU | OCTOBER 19, 2021
In the 2022 election campaign, Jair Bolsonaro and his followers may test the limits of democracy to protect their “right” to post.

americasquarterly.org

Bolsanaro is Brazil's Trump. If the vaccines had completed trials and gone to mass distribution under Trump's watch, I think it would've all been a different story. Everything is about attacking things that are perceived to benefit the opposition.

His Ivermectin Covid cocktails in lieu of vaccination have been a disaster. Calls to charge him for crimes endangering the population with quack remedies (probably personally profiting his cronies).
