So the developers at my employer have built this advanced budget tracking dashboard to allow you to track your media […]

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 […]

by koku_jin
'I want him to be more selfish' – Silva demands of Everton player – originally posted on Sportslens.com Everton secured a narrow 1-0 win at Watford’s expense at Goodison Park on Saturday. Bernard’s 10th minute strike was enough to seal all three points for Marco Silva’s men, and the Toffees have now won five games in a row at home for the first time since April 2017. Everton will have to become more ruthless in front of goal if they are to finish in top-six this season, and the Portuguese has demanded more from the Brazilian forward. While he assisted […]

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. This is both to ensure the longevity of my results and to reduce obesity-related risks and healing time. I also just like the look of the results better on non-obese patients. If I'm going to spend all this […]

by koku_jin
This article is part of Football FanCast’s The Chalkboard series, which provides a tactical insight into teams, players, managers, potential signings and more…  Aston Villa’s start to the Premier League season has begun with back-to-back defeats. They opened the campaign with the tough test of the Champions League finalists, Tottenham, where for the best part of an hour they looked a solid side that could have potentially caused the upset of the weekend. John McGinn’s early first-half strike was cancelled out in the 73rd minute by a Tanguy Ndombele thunderbolt before England’s Harry Kane netted a brace inside the final […]

Mason Mount provides the answer to Graeme Souness’ big Chelsea concern – opinion

by koku_jin
It ended up being a disappointing afternoon for Chelsea against Leicester City in what was Frank Lampard’s first game at Stamford Bridge as Blues boss since returning earlier in the summer. Despite a positive start, they could only come away with a 1-1 draw against the Foxes, and were in danger of ending up with nothing at all towards the end. The south-west London side will have felt that they should have capitalised on the pressure they had at the start of the game, but they were unable to put together a convincing lead and were eventually pegged back. Does […]

Norwich 3 Newcastle 1 – Watch official match highlights here

by koku_jin
It ended Norwich 3 Newcastle 1 on Saturday afternoon. Newcastle going down to a defeat against a much weakened Norwich side. A team that is strongly expected to be relegated, yet the Canaries absolutely dominated the Magpies. The first half saw Joelinton put a header just wide from am Isaac Hayden cross but that was about as good as it got until the final seconds. Longstaff setting Shelvey up for a very decent goal just before the final whistle. All a bit meaningless though as Norwich had dominated up to that point and the Pukki hat-trick was the very least […]
