Best PlayStation VR games: the best PSVR games around

by koku_jin
The PlayStation VR, which works with the PS4 and PS4 Pro, was released nearly three years ago now. When it launched, it was the first good quality virtual reality headset experience you could try at home that didn't need a powerful PC to get it up-and-running. That's changed now with the launch of the Oculus Quest, but the PSVR continues to be the best-selling virtual reality headset on the market.  Sony has always been committed to bringing high-quality games out onto its system, and has done so on hardware that puts entry price at just as an important standing as […]

Here’s how Trump’s Greenland plans fit in a long history of U.S. island imperialism

by koku_jin
One of the most unexpected turns of Donald Trump’s presidency came this week, when revelations spilled out about the president’s serious consideration of the purchase Greenland from Denmark. According to the Washington Post, senior administration officials mulled possibly offering some $600 million in annual subsidies to the Danish territory, alongside a “large one-time payment” to Denmark for the transfer. Trump even joked about trying to swap Greenland for Puerto Rico, the latter of which remains an American territory. The idea, at least as of right now, remains a farce, and isn’t yet a tragedy. However, there’s a clear historic legacy […]

Abbreviated pundit roundup: Trump’s Jew-baiting is feature, not bug; crafting a worker-led economy

by koku_jin
Carl Bildt at The Washington Post writes—Trump’s Denmark saga of the absurd: Apart from the surreal theater of the entire thing, and the profoundly insulting behavior toward a long-standing and loyal ally, the issues of Greenland and the Arctic are serious indeed. But it’s certainly not exchanging territories that is the way forward. Greenland is not for sale, and neither is Svalbard or Iceland. Instead, the necessary way forward is developing cooperation between all the stakeholders of this vast and challenging region to address challenges that are common to all of them. And climate change and its effects are by far the […]

The Death Of The 60/40 Portfolio

by koku_jin
Submitted by Guy Haselmann, macro strategist After almost 70 years of success, the 60/40 portfolio investment approach has become too risky and structurally incapable of meeting its intended objectives. It needs revisiting. First a bit of background. A 60/40 portfolio, which divides assets between equities and bonds, has been the standard for most personal investment portfolios. It is the starting point for many wealth advisors who might recommend a percent adjustment based on age; whereas, for instance, a higher equity allocation is recommended for younger people. Foundations of the 60/40 portfolio emerged from Harry Markowitz’s Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) work […]

Is 40lbs in 6.5 months a reasonable goal for me with these stats? (F | 34 | 5’2″ | 172lbs)

by koku_jin
So the reason this is time sensitive is that I'm having breast reduction surgery in late February. This is something that I've wanted for a long time and is going to make a HUGE difference in my quality of life and self esteem, but the surgeon recommends that I be within 5-10 lbs of my goal weight at the time of surgery.

If I'm going to spend all this […]
