I've been slowly layering into a short position against the US S&P 500 stock market. At this rate, I plan to be 80% short in my trading and retirement accounts by the end of May. You know “Sell in May and go away.” I am now at 45%.
That’s my general strategy here.
My reasons for building up this short position are many. Here are a few of them.
Public libraries have long been safe places for homeless people. In San Francisco, library administrators realized that because of their safe-place reputation they had a unique opportunity to reach out to the local homeless community. They hired Leah Esguerra, a psychiatric social worker who is believed to be the nation’s first full-time social worker at a library.
Food waste has become an enormous global problem, with an estimated one third of the world’s current food supply for human consumption being lost or wasted every year. And the solutions aren’t simple, as food waste is as complex a problem as it is dire. Food waste occurs at every step along the supply chain, including producers and distributors who reject imperfect food, stores and restaurants that discard uneaten food, and consumers who throw away leftovers or allow food to spoil.

What if you could carry and exchange gold in the exact same manner as you do with the dollar bills in your wallet?
Two years ago, we introduced the precious metals community to a company called Valaurum, which has developed a technology that's making this possible.
I recommend But Anyway, a new song about gentrification by Washington DC-based lawyer and rapper Tarica June. It hits a nerve.
I haven't watched my hometown disappear like her. That's because as a Navy brat, I've never had a hometown. That's probably why the song resonates. That plus watching as half of my friends and much of what I loved about San Francisco disappear over the last five years due to gentrification.
