When it comes to investing, it would be an understatement to say that we’re living in merely interesting times. Thanks to the collective boredom of the youth, the stock market has become a high-powered slot machine powered by memes.
But despite the ups and downs of the stock market, there’s one place on which I can always rely; my beloved property market.
I adore the property market for being the slow, dependable option that can still go just a bit wild, usually the moment you think you’ve got it all figured out.
If you saw Dan Levy’s episode of SNL…
In a move that should surprise absolutely no-one, News Break has dropped their game-changing $1,000 per month minimum royalty guarantee for all creators on the platform.
If you’re a News Break creator and you’re unable to believe that the platform couldn’t sustain that payment model anymore.. then I have no words. What is your life.
News aggregate service “News Break” burst into the scene late last year with a promise for writers that was so unbelievable, it seemed like a scam. When I was first told about it, I was confident that it was either fake or a pyramid scheme…
When friends ask me to accurately tell them what the hell is going on with the stock market right now, I just shrug my shoulders.
“The rule book was thrown out the window” I casually say before getting back to my latte.
“Is that because Reddit ruined everything?” My naive friend will ask, causing me to splutter latte all over my shirt.
Reddit didn’t ruin anything, let’s just get that straight right out the gate. Reddit simply dared to do something when they didn’t like what the hedge fund overlords were up to.
Let’s be real, hedge funds have been…
For most people in the world right now, the drama that’s unfolding on the stock market looks completely insane and unjustified.
It can feel strange to hear from every corner of the internet that the hedge funds “deserve this” and that all these big money guys are evil.
What could anyone have done to deserve this much of an outcry from the Reddit community?
In case you haven’t heard, the subreddit WallStreetBets banded together and bought up the shares of failing retailer GameStop over December and January. This collective action caused the $18 share price to skyrocket to over $300…
“What the hell is going on?!”
You scream as the stock market shatters around you. Redditors are shaking the foundations of the market while hedge fund managers run screaming from the building, desperately shoving cash into their pockets as they run.
Ladies and gentlemen, what we’re experiencing is something unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.. and the ride isn’t over yet.
This whole misadventure begins with r/WallStreetBets, the subreddit made up of thousands of investing fanatics who believe in the average investor and hate the crooks that make up Wall Street.
For all who watch and enjoy great TV and films, learning that a beloved actor has died can be almost as traumatic as losing someone in your own family.
We grow to love the actors who play well written characters on our screens, and have never been more connected to them than we are now through social media.
Because of these facts, we were rocked this year when some of our favourite actors were taken from us. In one way or another, each of these performers touched our lives, and we will remember them forever.
Here below are a few…
A brand new Nintendo Direct has been released, finally giving us a proper look at the brand new Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan. But more exciting than that is the confirmation that the park will expand to Orlando in 2023 and LA after that.
But after seeing how the park will look in Japan, I can only hope that their US plans will improve on the original design.
During the direct, we were given a tour of the completed park by Super Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. …
Yesterday was the day a lot of us have been waiting for all year, it was finally time to get our hands on the AirPods Max.
Originally rumoured to be called Studio AirPods (which would have been a far better name), these are Apple’s first foray into over-ear headphones.
From a business perspective, it’s a surprise that Apple made the jump at all. After its $3 billion acquisition of Beats, Apple already spent its way into the headphones market.
Releasing a competitive earphone brand that it will market alongside its own Beats models is cannibalising its own business, especially since…
Since joining News Break a week ago, I’ve had a blast exploring what works, what doesn’t, and trying to strategise a way forward on this new platform.
As part of my process, I’ve joined one of the dedicated Facebook groups for News Break Creators, and man, is it a minefield of everyone’s fears and insecurities.
People are so worried about where they’re going to end up if they don’t start attracting enough audience interaction to match News Break’s expectations.
So what’s expected? And why is everyone so worried?
As many readers will already know, News Break is offering writers a…
From ‘Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life’ to ‘Newlywed and Dead’, Lifetime Original Movies have made themselves famous and a lot of money by being much more memorable than they are high quality.
After years of spending the bare minimum to provide us with the most laugh-out-loud titles imaginable, Lifetime has a new movie for us that is breaking the internet in half.
Backed by a licensing deal with KFC, Lifetime has made a horny romance flick starring Mario Lopez as sexy Colonel Sanders.
In the movie, the Colonel is called Harland, and he’s the brand new chef for the beautiful…
