Mark R. Reimet, CFP®CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™Jodie BoothFinancial Advisor,Mark R. Reimet, CFP®CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™Jodie BoothFinancial Advisor Congress is on recess for another week, returning to Washington next Monday 7 /20/20. Lawmakers have likely heard from their anxious constituents, many of whom are among the 17.8 million unemployed Americans as of 6/30/20. There is Congressional support for what would be the third round of “Paycheck Protection Program” (PPP) loans for small businesses, on top of the $659 billion already allocated to be loaned at 1 % for two years. Policymakers are also thinking “out-of-the box,” considering other plans to stimulate consumer spending as it relates to travel, vacations and dining out (source: Congress).Millions of Americans are on the move because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and not just because of job losses. For some, being quarantined in a big-city apartment has pushed them to move back to their home state to be closer to aging parents. For others, the “work-from-home” requirement has caused employees to realize that as long as they have an internet connection, they don’t have to live in expensive major cities on either coast. Remarkably, home purchase applications for the week ending 7 /03/20 were +33% higher than the same period a year earlier (source: Mortgage Bankers Association).In late April 2020, the Congressional Budget Office forecasted a budget deficit for fiscal year 2020 of $3.7 trillion or 18.1 % of our $20.4 trillion economy. The “deficit dollar amount” record in the U.S.A. is $1.41 trillion from fiscal year 2009. The “deficit as a percentage of GDP” record in the U.S.A. is 29 .6% from fiscal year 1943 (source: CBO). Notable Numbers for the Week:TAKE IT AND SPEND IT – The CARES Act authorized non-taxable distributions of $1,200 per individual and $500 per child (under the age of 17). 159 million electronic payments and checks totaling $267 billion were paid to income-eligible Americans (source: CARES Act).DEATHS – The first American death from the COVID-19 pandemic occurred on 2/06/20. As of 9am ET on7/06/20, i.e., five months later, 130,937 Americans had died from the pandemic. 93% of the American death total has occurred in the last three months, i.e., since 4/06/20 (source: NBC News, Meet the Press: First Read).JUST IN CASE – 45% of Americans surveyed in May 2020 have living wills in place. Living wills document an individual’s “end of life” medical care wishes in case he/she loses the ability to communicate (source: Gallup Poll).HOW LONG? – 37% of 1,000 American voters interviewed during the last week of June 2020 anticipate that the U.S. economy will “fully recover” within a year from now, i.e., 63% of those interviewed believe it will take at least another year for the U.S. economy to come all the way back (source: Financial Times-Peter G. Peterson Foundation).

FH woman celebrates first year selling sports equipment to femalesBy Anastasia MillickerKendra Boyd runs her A Chic with Stix store, which caters to female lacrosse and field hockey players only, from the top floor of her parents’ Fair Haven florist shop.FAIR HAVEN – Kendra Boyd has had a field hockey stick in her hand since middle school.The Atlantic Highlands native started playing field hockey as a youngster, gradually moving up to play at the high school level for Henry Hudson Regional High School then at the college level for the The College of New Jersey.Today Boyd is still playing but her passion for field hockey has not stopped on the field. Boyd is the founder and owner of the shop A Chic With Stix. Named after her recreational field hockey league, A Chic With Stix offers girls’ only lacrosse and field hockey equipment and apparel.Boyd, 25, said field hockey has always been her passion. She had a dream to set up a store to help educate female athletes – especially those playing field hockey and lacrosse – about finding the right equipment to help them succeed. So she set up shop above her parents’ garden shop, Boxwood Gardens, on River Road.Teaching health and physical education during the day at Carl Sandberg Middle School in Old Bridge, Boyd operates the shop in the evening with the help of her parents, Bill and Pam, and her sister, Christy.Located on the second floor of the two-story Victorian home, A Chic With Stix has a wall lined with a wide range of selections for female athletes, including lacrosse and hockey sticks of all colors and sizes, apparel in bright and fluorescent colors, shin guards and a rack of headbands decorated with lacrosse balls.Unlike large sporting good stores in the area, A Chic With Stix offers firsthand and personalized knowledge about the equipment, Boyd said.“In a large store, you order a stick or a lacrosse stick and you don’t get to try it out and sometimes people working in the large stores aren’t as knowledgeable. But here you can try out the stick and, if it’s your first time, I can show you how to properly hold it and size it,” Boyd said.Boyd also offers field hockey lessons.When the store first opened its doors a year ago, the shop initially offered only field hockey equipment. Today it has expanded its selection offering lacrosse sticks and apparel including some brands typically not offered in large sporting good stores such as Dita, Grays, Gryphon, TK, STX, Harrow, and deBeer.When first purchasing a stick, Boyd said she asks customers if they have played before. Then, based on their experience, height and athletic performance level sought, Boyd tells them the size and shows clients how to use the equipment.Kendra Boyd in her shop, A Chic with Stix, 807 River Road in Fair Haven.Hockey sticks range from $50 to $299 based on style and athletic level while lacrosse sticks range from $45 to $200 depending on brand, types of lacrosse sticks and heads. Teams can receive 10 percent discounts when they place a team order.Many local high school and middle school athletes, including those from Red Bank Regional, Rumson-Fair Haven, Red Bank Catholic and Manasquan high schools, come to try out and purchase sticks, Boyd said.Boyd attributes much of her business’ success to her parents’ and teammates’ support.Friends and members of teams have spread the word about her business by sending email messages to school athletic directors and coaches throughout New Jersey.“The girls I played with all throughout my years, alumni, and coaches at The College of New Jersey and Henry Hudson Regional High School have all been huge supporters and promoters for my store,” Boyd said.A Chic With Stix celebrated its first year anniversary in April. Boyd said the past year has brought many successes and she hopes to continue into the upcoming years.As for future plans, Boyd hopes to expand her business throughout the state by opening locations in North and South Jersey.A Chic with Stix is located at 807 River Road and is open from 3-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.Additional information is available on the store’s website at www.achicwithstix.com.
ARCADIA, Calif. (June 26, 2015)–Breaking from the rail in a field of 11 sophomores, Anytime Anyplace sat close to the pace under Drayden Van Dyke and took command a furlong out en route to a convincing 1 ¼ length win in Friday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita. Trained by Paddy Gallagher, Anytime Anyplace covered 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in 1:14.50.“He’s a nice horse and he ran great,” said Van Dyke, who was aboard for the first time on Friday. “He could’ve run a little straighter there the last part, but he kind of jumped over to his right lead and went toward the rail with me (resulting in a stewards inquiry that involved runner-up Diamond Majesty). I tried to correct him as soon as I could though and it worked out.”Idle since running fourth in the 1 1/8 miles turf La Puente Stakes April 18, Anytime Anyplace, who made his first start for Gallagher on Friday, was the 5-2 favorite and paid $7.20, $4.60 and $3.40. Owned by the Harlington Ferro Family Trust and Aaron Sones, the Florida-bred colt by Any Given Saturday improved his overall mark to 7-2-2-1. With the winner’s share of $34,800, he increased his earnings to $107,210.Ridden by Flavien Prat, Diamond Majesty re-rallied after the incident and was just up for the place by a nose over longshot Lovenseek. Off at 5-1, Diamond Majesty paid $6.20 and $3.60.Lovenseek, who was off at 12-1 with Tyler Baze, paid $7.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.56, 44.29 and 1:07.98.First post time on Saturday, Gold Cup at Santa Anita Day, is at 1 p.m. Santa Anita will offer a 10-race card, to be highlighted by the Grade I, $500,000 Gold Cup, the Grade I $300,000 Triple Bend Stakes and two other graded stakes events.Additionally, Triple Crown Champion American Pharoah will be paraded between the seventh and eighth races. All Santa Anita THOROUGHBREDS Club members will receive a beautiful officially licensed American Pharoah Triple Crown Champion T-Shirt, free with paid admission, while supplies last. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m. –30–
Here are a couple of updates to stories we reported earlier in the category “Everything we thought was wrong.”Globular cluster ages: Our 10/05/2003 entry reported that beliefs about globular cluster ages were undergoing a radical revision. You can almost feel the rumblings in a related story on [email protected]; “In a complex Universe, astronomers thought they had at least one simple system to tell them how stars are born. Turns out they were wrong,” reported Jenny Hogan. Other statements say that globulars “aren’t as simple as astronomers used to think,” and that “it’s changing our ideas completely,” and that this will require us to “tear up textbooks.” Moreover, the realization that GCs are not homogeneous collections of ancient stars, but are now seen to contain young blue stars, will have ripple effects. “If you have problems reproducing star formation in globular clusters, you will have problems with a galaxy,” reported one astronomer. To be sure, a new interpretation is emerging that there were two episodes of star birth in most GCs. Hogan downplays the impact of the revelations, commenting that the new picture “shouldn’t upset long-term calculations of age too much.” To remind us, though, that shouldn’t has an element of wishful thinking in it, she ends: “But, astronomers add, they haven’t yet had time to work out all the implications.”Atmospheric methane sources: In a 01/12/2006 entry, we reported the surprising finding that plants contribute a third of the methane budget in Earth’s atmosphere. Nature brought the story up to date in the 08/17/2006 issue (442, 730-731(17 August 2006) | doi:10.1038/442730a). In “The methane mystery,” the magazine said that this finding has “shaken up atmospheric scientists.” The January claim, corroborated by another team in March, “rattled many, because textbooks hold that methane is produced from organic matter decaying in oxygen-free environments, not from living plants,” the news item said. “If true, his finding could account for a substantial fraction of the methane entering the atmosphere – potentially throwing off calculations of how much humans contribute.” Scrutiny of these announcements has not yielded a consensus to confirm or refute the data. Analysis is complicated further by another finding in Brazil that suggests some species can emit 4,000 times more methane than others. The findings are contentious and may have major ramifications on how atmospheric scientists interpret the human contribution to global warming. The goal now is to collect better data. Nature did not land on a particular side of the debate, but quoted one scientist’s advice, “You need to understand the entire greenhouse budget before you can start thinking about mitigating climate change.”Both these stories came out of the blue. Both are having major impacts on the way scientists think about subjects over which they used to be confident. Both are overhauling textbook orthodoxies, and both are illustrations of the fact that nothing in science is immune to revision.Encore: Here’s a story from the University of Bristol, UK, about Neandertals. It begins, “Neandertals were much more like modern humans than had been previously thought, according to a re-examination of finds from one of the most famous palaeolithic sites in Europe….”Since these are controversial subjects, students should only be taught the standard view. Teachers do not have time to teach the controversy, and it is not the job of public schools to go beyond the prescribed curriculum. Students might be confused by hearing differing views. Despite the credentials of the scientists involved, we can’t be sure they were not politically or religiously motivated. This is how science is done, and if you are going to play the game of science, you must play by the rules. Administrators should prohibit teachers from showing these articles to students under the guise of “supplementary material,” even if they come from the scientific journals. Failure to cease and desist will provide grounds for a lawsuit. (Commentary inspired by Eugenie Scott and the NCSE thought police.)(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

CONSTANTINOPLE – Olympiakos qualified for the Euroleague final, after beating CSKA Moscow 82-78 and holding off the Russian team in another dramatic reversal.Olympiacos’s last lead was 7-9 during the first quarter of the semifinal. Agravanis and Green each missed from downtown with a chance to change that almost 2 minutes before the end of the game.Spanoulis didn’t.A deep triple with 1:53 showing put the Reds ahead 73-74. Spanoulis then drew attention to set up Birch for an alley-oop slam. But he’s not the only former MVP on the floor and Teodosic tied it at 76-76 with a three, which indecently moved him into eighth place among Final Four scorers all-time with 148 points.That fact did not impress Green, who answered with a three with 42 seconds to play. CSKA needed a defensive stand and got one. But Teodosic missed a pull-up shot in transition. Still, the champs got the ball back and had Higgins at the line with 3.1 second left down 77-80. He made the first and missed the second intentionally, but Khryapa and Hines were unable to corral the rebound.And Olympiacos proved to have CSKA’s number when it mattered most once again.See the highlights and read more at Euroleague.netOlympiakos qualified for the Euroleague final, after beating CSKA Moscow 82-78, holding off the Russian team in another dramatic reversal.

APTN National NewsChief Theresa Spence is planning her exit strategy to end her weeks-old fast Thursday by demanding a commitment from federal opposition leaders and chiefs to press the Conservative government on a list of demands going forward.The list includes the eight points laid out by the Assembly of First Nations to Prime Minister Stephen Harper during their meeting Jan. 11, that included proper funding for education and respect of treaties.“The eight-point plan, plus straightforward additional commitments that reflect our needs in our communities in terms of housing, in terms of funding issues. All those things have to come into play. All those things need to be discussed openly and transparently,” said Spence spokesperson Danny Metatawabin to APTN National News Wednesday. The full story airs tonight on the APTN National News.Spence and her supporters have been in discussion with Liberal leader Bob Rae and NDP MP Romeo Saganash, who is said to be leading the negotiations, to determine the list of demands and ensure their parties are on board to campaign on behalf of First Nations.“I’ve been involved for some time now in trying to allow Chief Spence to end her fast with dignity. This has meant extensive discussions with the AFN, individual chiefs, Chief Spence and her team, and others,” said Rae in a statement. “She has done a lot to galvanize opinion around an issue of critical importance to Canadians.”If they don’t sign on Spence said she will continue her fast that began Dec. 11 on Victoria Island in Ottawa.Also on the list is demands original demand – a meeting between Harper, the governor general and First Nation leaders.Metatawabin said they don’t feel a commitment was made from the Jan. 11 meeting, although Harper said there would be further meetings, but the next one will only be with AFN national chief Shawn Atleo.“We stand firm. We stand united to add those commitments on to a declaration and endorsed by chiefs and endorsed by opposition parties to carry this forward,” Metatawabin said Wednesday. “Everybody is in all this together and we need to support that movement together for future generations.”He said accepting to carry the torch, so to speak, for Spence and First Nations is what they need to see before Spence packs up and heads back to Attawapiskat as members of her band council head to Ottawa to demand she quit her fast or quit her role as chief of their community.“It’s up to (the leaders) to accept those commitments and if they don’t accept those commitments we continue here,” said Metatawabin, who believes they’ll be successful in achieving their goals. “Eventually we will get there.”A source close to APTN National News said Wednesday morning Spence will end her fast Thursday, the same day a ceremony is being held in Ottawa to honour Spence.
TORONTO – Another Canadian clothing retailer, Roots Corp., wants to take its company public as it plans a massive North American and international expansion over the next several years.For the heritage-fashion retailer the switch from being a private company for more than four decades comes against a challenging retail environment that’s seen numerous bankruptcies, and mass store closures and layoffs in recent years.The company known for its poor boy style hats and woolly winter mitts that have adorned both Canada’s Olympic athletes and consumers has applied to list on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol ROOT.The retailer, which operates 120 stores in North America and has a partner running another 136 between Taiwan and China, is looking to open dozens of new locations.That includes up to 10 in Canada and up to 14 in the States by the end of its 2019 financial year.Roots is also eyeing international markets, hoping to grow by up to 25 new locations between Taiwan and China, and build a presence in Singapore and Malaysia in the same time frame.Beyond that, the company is evaluating partnerships in a dozen new markets abroad.“When you have such large expansion goals and projections, then it makes sense to go forward with an IPO,” said Tamara Szames, a Canadian fashion and apparel analyst for the NPD Group.An initial public offering would provide some of the capital necessary to fund the expansion plan, she said.The price and the number of shares being sold by Searchlight, Budman and Green — the private investment firm that purchased a majority stake in Roots in 2015 — was not immediately disclosed. A Roots spokesman declined to comment.The company’s IPO comes against “a favourable backdrop,” said Craig Fehr, principal investment strategist at Edward Jones Investments.Investor sentiment is quite positive, equity markets have a lot of momentum behind them and stock prices are up across the board, he said.Additionally, Roots disclosed financial growth in its preliminary prospectus that’s quite strong, he said, a good sign that its managing ongoing disruption to the retail industry by the rise of e-commerce and other factors.The retailer is following in the footsteps of other Canadian fashion companies, including recent initial public offerings by Vancouver-based Aritzia (TSX:ATZ) and Toronto-based winter-coat maker Canada Goose (TSX:GOOS).Shares in Canada Goose have soared more than 40 per cent since they began trading earlier this year, however Aritzia shares have struggled and fallen well below their IPO price. The shares debuted on the Toronto Stock Exchange in Oct. 2016, with an IPO price of $16, but are currently trading below $14.Fehr said the different paths of those retailers may demonstrate that a company with a niche offering like Canada Goose is more likely to succeed.Investors may be more comfortable betting on a luxury retailer whose parkas sell for upwards of $1,400, added Szames, than on Aritzia, which sells its goods at a price range where many retailers are struggling.Roots, which points to its leather goods and footwear products as a possible area of expansion, could position itself in a high price bracket, Szames said.However, both IPOs had one thing in common, she said, highlighting that each stock soared on the first day of trading.Szames anticipates Roots will be seen as a similarly hot item.“We’re going to see that surge,” she said, adding no one can predict what will happen next.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.
