  • Get a tiny Raspberry Pi Zero with adapters

    The Raspberry Pi Zero is a tiny Linux computer. Ever since they were announced last year for $5, they have been hard to get. But if you are willing to spend about $20, you can get one on Amazon. This Raspberry Pi Zero kit from Argon Forty is $18.50, and it also includes a Mini HDMI to HDMI adapter and a Micro USB OTG to USB Adapter, both of which I needed anyway, so it's a good deal. The Raspberry Pi Zero W is $2 more and comes with onboard Wi-Fi. You will also need a Micro SDHC flash memory...

  • More Hilarious Facts About Tesla From A Hedge Fund Shorting The Stock

    Via SovereignMan.com, A few weeks ago, we shared a note about Tesla from the hedge fund Vilas Capital Management. The firm, which is short the shares, said “Tesla is going to crash in the next 3-6 months.” I received an update from Vilas this morning explaining why they’re even more bearish on Tesla today. The firm pared its short positions after the recent selloff. And Telsa now comprises about 98% of their short book. Clearly Vilas thinks Tesla’s reckoning is imminent. You can read the...

  • 100 Easy Outfits to Try When You Have Zero Clue What to Wear

    If you've ever promised yourself you'd wake up early only to snooze five different alarms and stumble out of bed last minute, we feel you. Waking up can be rough - but not quite as rough as getting dressed on mornings like these. Nothing looks right (were you insane when you bought that top?!), clothes are everywhere, and you're about a nanosecond away from sobbing and pretending you're sick. ("Sorry, can't adult today.")

  • I'm a millionaire who creates zero jobs. Why do I pay less tax than you?

    Our tax code is deliberately designed to reward money over work, and the corporate tax cut financially rewards companies for moving money and jobs overseas In 2013, just a few years after the 2008 financial crisis, I was part of BlackRock’s Financial Markets Advisory Group working for the Greek Central Bank, assessing the capital requirements of the bailouts of the Greek banks.

  • Hedge Fund Leverage Plunges Most Since The Financial Crisis

    While it may seem like a lifetime ago, it was only in late January that the market was melting up relentlessly with every trading day, as volatility crashed lower and lower to unsustainable single digit levels, sending the S&P into a buying frenzy. It was, as Morgan Stanley pointed out at the time, "euphoria." Commenting on the dramatic shift in market mood, Morgan Stanley's Michael Wilson also said that the S&P 500 P/Es peaked in December, the same day as Bitcoin, one day before the...
