Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Mouse lag fix

2020.11.29 08:48 lazigi Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Mouse lag fix

===ENG===
Good day. The other day we were distributing the game Rising Storm 2: Vietnam at Epic Games and decided to play this game, as there were a lot of positive emotions from Rising Storm: Red Orchestra 2.
And here's the bad luck when moving the cursor, the frame counter dropped to zero. I was shocked, because the computer is not the weakest, but the FPS is down to zero; the characteristics are shown below. After reading articles on the Internet, I realized that from the conspiracy theory to aliens, everyone in the district is trying to harm the poor RS2: Vietnam, but I caught one essence - the essence in the Mouse and its drivers.
After conducting my own investigation, I realized that the old mice will return to fashion, only because of RS2: Vietnam and because of their DEVELOPERS.
Mice that can work (The list is small, well, excuse me, I don't have many mice in the house):
===RUS===
Доброго времени суток. На днях раздавали игру Rising Storm 2: Vietnam в Epic Games и решил поиграть в эту игру, так-как было много положительных эмоций от Rising Storm: Red Orchestra 2.И вот незадача при перемещении курсора счётчик кадров падал до нуля. Я был в шоке, потому что, компьютер не самый слабый, а FPS до нуля; характеристики указаны ниже. Почитав статьи в интернете, я понял, что от теории заговора, до инопланетян, все в округе пытаются навредить бедному RS2: Vietnam, но уловил одну суть - суть в Мышке и драйверах к ней.
Проведя собственное расследование, понял, что старые мышки вернутся в моду, только из-за RS2: Vietnam и из-за их РАЗРАБОТЧИКОВ.
Мышки которые могут работать(Список мал, ну извините у меня не много мышей в доме):

2020.11.29 04:59 theshadowysoothsayer A caution for those who swipe right on every profile on Tinder...

I've... never been much of a dater. Honestly, I suck at it. I'm pretty much average in every way you can think of. Average height, average face, average to the point you could call me the Mean. Women never really showed any interest in me, and it's not like I pursued them either. I never felt special, so why bother. I heard so many horror stories from my older siblings about how much rejection hurt that I just didn't try. I didn't let it bother me as much when I was younger. The way I figured it, I'd get into college, be myself, and hopefully find the future Ms. Average.
Well, that was years ago, and my college career came and went, and my dating life was non-existent. Yeah, there were a few dates here and there, but nothing concrete. I guess I didn't have the charisma or the eloquence to be a great romantic. But I have a heart too, you know, and it hurts after a while not being wanted. I've spent the last year trying to fix this, and mainly through online dating apps. I live in a pretty sleepy town and there's not a huge population of girls here to choose from if I'm honest. Those in my league passed on me long ago, so I thought I'd cast the net wide and see if anyone wanted to talk to regular ole me. I signed up for nearly all of them, safe for those weird ones reserved for the super religious or those folks that dress up like animals. That's not really my bag. Bumble, Hinge, OKC, you name, I signed up for it and I got nowhere. I mean zilch, nada, no interest, nobody caring, no bites nothing. Turns out I'm about as magnetic as a potato and about as tasty to women as a magnet is.
That fucking sucks, of course, and I drowned my sorrows in the last place a desperate heart should go:
Tinder
I know, I know. I can hear you laughing at me from behind your computer screens. Why go to the most savage, most cutthroat, "only the aesthetically pleasing may apply" place on the internet? Desperation simply, my laughing friend.
At first, I tried curating my selections. I read profiles, measured up compatibility, and took a good look at how I was swiping on, and in the end, it got me nowhere. I leveled up my photos, and even got a friend to do some filters and smoothing out, and still nothing. I decided then to be extra needy and just start swiping right on every single profile I could find. Quantity, not quality! That was my mantra and I'd be there, happily zipping through profiles so fast I couldn't tell who was under my thumb. I could have swiped right on a donkey wearing yoga pants and I still would have taken the match. Til that annoying pop up would ruin my day. "You've used up your swipes, come back in 12 hours". That wrecked my momentum, so regrettably, I paid for Tinder Gold, and have unlimited swipes.
This had to work. I had no limitations now, surely some woman wants to date me.
So, I started swiping into overdrive. I worked out a pretty great system actually. I'd watch Netflix and just swipe, not even looking at the profiles anymore. I'd set a timer for 30 minutes and then I’d check to see if anyone bit.
You'd get some matches that way, and being honest, most of them were mis-swipes from girls, or bots, or people with no sense of conversation. Have you ever matched with someone, opened the dialogue and they just don't respond? No decency to unmatch, they just stare at you like some sort of vaguely pretty blank statue, unresponsive and bland.
A week in and I still hadn't gotten a meaningful conversation and I got sick of it. I opened up the app to go and cancel it all when a weird surge flickered through the screen. It went black for a second and was unresponsive and before I could hold down the power button to restart it, a message popped up.
"You've swiped over a thousand times and no conversations. Why not try Tinder Black and enjoy a totally curated experience? No need to swipe, we’ll find the perfect partner for you”
I expected a huge price tag and being matched with more undatable beasts like myself
“and for our Gold members, enjoy a complimentary Tinder Black match on us.”
Then a little box popped up imploring me to “SIGN UP”, no X for canceling it though.
I thought about it for a moment. I hadn’t heard of this new service, and it looked sketchy, but then again, it knew enough about me to be plausible. They’d definitely have my swiping habits, and it was probably a thousand swipes, at least, the way I was doing it.
“Fuck it” I thought, “It’s not like things could get worse” and I tapped the sign-up button.
The app reloaded into a new black and white theme; the little flame replaced with a little black heart on fire. The flames of new love, I guess.
“Get ready, we’re putting the finishing touches on our pick”, the screen promised, “We know you’re gonna love….”
Confetti graphics flashed and a name popped up on the screen.
“Emma B!”
The screen faded again, and a gorgeous face replaced the words. She looked incredible. Pale skin with the right number of freckles, stunning scarlet red hair, a smile that could make Stevie Wonder see, and the most amazing eyes.
I never saw anything like them before. I swear they were purple, the irises anyway. Definitely, contacts, or some fucked up kind of hazel, but I’m not an optometrist, so what do I know? What I did know though, was that this woman was incredible looking and so far out of my league we weren’t even playing the same game. This was an Olympian competing against an amateur Tiddlywinks player who isn’t even that good at tiddly winking but does it for the human interaction.
I swiped through the other photos. Not only was her face incredible, but she had the body of a goddess. Tall and lean, there were at least 3 bikini photos and a few of her in elegant dresses, all the while her eyes drew you in like a hug. I was in love a little already.
The details were sparse. She was 25, and self-employed, but didn’t specify. It didn’t matter though, because before I could finish looking through her profile, I got a message alert.
She opened the dialogue herself!
I tapped the icon and there was the first message;
“Hey there pally, I’m Emma. I’m so glad Tinder Black worked out for the both of us, and you look really cute. Would you like to chat?”
I think I tapped back a reply so fast, I nearly cracked the phone screen.
--
Our relationship grew from there. Turns out we were really similar. Same music tastes, same movies, and she actually gave a damn about me, you know? She sent me messages at work throughout the day and she had an excellent gif game. Like scary good, it was love man.
We even started doing these little online watch parties every night, using a site that lets you screen share. We’d go back and forth picking stuff, me with my comic book heroes, she loved old action and I think we watched every Charles Bronson movie ever made.
She had this amazing voice too. The right kind of tone, the right pitch. It would get high during her excited bursts of conversation and huskier when our chats would inevitably move to a more romantic arena. She was perfection.
The only problem was this damn Covid lockdown. We wanted to meet for months and we couldn’t, til one night, I couldn’t take it anymore. I raised the idea of me breaking the quarantine to go see her and braced myself for the rejection.
Instead, she replied “OMG, really? I’d love that baby, seriously. These last few months have been torture talking to you without even getting a kiss. Come see me, baby, it’ll be a night you’ll never forget”
When she sent me a pic of her in new purple lacy lingerie, I ran to my car and drove into the dark night so fast, the spiders in the corner of my room saw a dust apparition of me collapse into nothingness.
--
She lived about an hour away in a city near the border. She sent me the address and my phone’s GPS led me to an apartment building down by the docks. New and modern, it looked expensive and I made a mental note to ask Emma about her job. She must have had serious dough.
I parked and walked up to the main entrance. I tapped on her house number, 17a, and waited “Baby?” the voice came back, and it was definitely Emma “It’s the loving express, Emma” I called back, and her giggles were momentarily blocked out by the buzz of the door opening.
I took the elevator up and didn’t even have to knock on the door. There she was, in a dressing gown and a huge smile. Shorter than I thought, but stunning was too weak a word to describe this kind of beauty. She radiated it.
“Baby!”, she exclaimed and wrapped her arms around me, hugging me tight and way stronger than I thought. Thoughts faded though as she kissed me fast and my mind began to swim.
I felt like lightning hit me, that kiss was so good. That kiss felt like the feeling you get peeling the plastic off of new electronics times a million. It was every slice of cake you ever ate coming back to you at once and dancing the rumba on your tongue. It was getting a clap on the back from Superman and the Dalai Lama while Elvis played in the background. It was the heaven of heavens, the holiest of holy feelings. It was beyond description.
She led me to her sitting room and I barely noticed the décor of the apartment. It looked minimalist, but girls these days love that Marie Kondo stuff, so who I am to question that. She pushed me down into a seated position and sat on my lap, kissing me more and more.
If you could get drunk off affection, I was punch drunk by the second kiss and I didn’t even need anything more. The sight of this beauty in my arms kissing me of her own free will was like an eraser, rubbing out 30 years of mistakes on the whiteboard of my life. Her kiss was so good, even though she was full-on with her tongue.
She slid off my lap onto the floor and put her palm over my eyes. “No peeking ok?”
I nodded, enjoying the game.
“Before we go any further baby, I have to know. Are you going to be faithful to me? Forever and ever and ever?”
I gasped “I will, I will Emma, you know I will”
Her voice was huskier
“Will you devote yourself to me, like a good boy?”
I playfully pushed against her palm “I renounce all other gods before you Emma, you’re all I need”
She laughed a little “You’re the sweetest” then she squeezed my knee and a sharp pang of pain rose up through my leg. I cried out a little, feeling the torn fabric, and pulled free of her palm blindfold.
What knelt before me was something out of nightmare and fantasy rolled into one. She retained her immaculate body, the curves, the perfection, the proportion. But her mask had slipped and morphed and become primal, monstrous, almost demonic. Those big eyes turned a full deep violet and they stared up at me with a knowing taunt, as a tongue, long and serpent-like flicked flecks of her venom across a mouth and lips that split wider than anything a human could manage. Her hands were claws, harpy sharp, and a thin trickle of blood ran over the one still clasped around my knee.
She looked at me with a smirk and her long-forked tongue darted out and licked the blood off her claw tip.
“Delicious”, her voice still infectious and sweet and sexy*. “but you shouldn’t have peaked. Boys like you usually devote yourselves to me in the dark and rarely see me for who I really am”*
I struggled against her grip as she whispered in my ear “Now that you’ve seen me for what I am, I’ll ask you again. I’m fair, after all. I may be a monster, but consent is still important”
I pushed back as she blew in my ear “Do you devote yourself to me, baby? I can promise you a life of pleasures you’ll never forget. You’ll serve me, yes, but with a smile and I’ll never give you a reason to go. All you need to do is devote and let e taste your soul. I promise I won’t drink it all. We'll be together forever and ever and ever and you can leave your boring life behind ”
She giggled again, and I didn’t know what to do. Her kiss had disorientated me but without constant contact, I could feel myself returning to my senses. Seeing the nightmare hunched at my feet, I screamed
“No, I can’t, I can’t, Jesus”, I pushed and pushed, and she let me go, with a laugh, albeit a sad one.
“I guess even monsters can’t catch a break” as I took off, running out of her apartment.
The last thing I remember was her sweet voice calling out to me as I ran down the fire stairs.
“Feel free to match me again on the app, I don’t take it personally!”
I got into my car and rolled down the window, tossing the phone into the sea and speeding off into the night.
--
That was a month ago now and I’m not quite sure how to process what happened to me. I deleted all the dating apps and tried in-person stuff for a while. Speed dating is actually pretty fun, and I tried a few more things too. Sadly, though my old troubles returned, and I just couldn’t get anyone invested in me.
I found myself missing her; her laugh and her humour, and the hours of conversation we shared. Maybe it was genuine, I don’t know. But it has me thinking of whether what she was offering was all that bad. My life is nothing really and if I died tomorrow, the only people who would notice would be those who complained of the smell in the hallway after a week.
My new phone came in the post today and the previous apps are all reinstalled except for the last one. I’m putting the finishing touches on this note, just in case. I think I have a fun time ahead of me, but this will be here just to dispel anyone thinking I went and decided to disappear off into the night out of unhappiness. I did it for something more than a life of merely existing.
As I finish, the phone beeps, letting me know Tinder Black has reinstalled. I log in and I see a familiar face with a new message:
“Miss me?”
For the lonely guys out there, there are options, you know. You may get matched with someone completely out of your dreams or your nightmares, but if you get on well with them, isn’t that what matters?
There are worse things that can happen than getting the soul sucked out of you.

2020.11.29 03:22 icropdustthemedroom CVIMCU RN here & author of this subreddit's sidebar megapost. Very proud of this new BRAIN SHEET I've made and thought I would share it all with you here for FREE! Also making a "the best nursing school supplement on the internet" YouTube channel for FREE and accepting video ideas!!

Hey all. I am the author of one of this subreddit's mega posts in the sidebar SEE HERE which helped hundreds of you previously, and I'm back to share something else that I hope many will find useful!
I'm now an RN BSN with 1.5 years' experience on a Cardiac Intermediate Care Unit at a Level 1 trauma teaching hospital, and I've been working on the perfect brain sheet for myself ever since I became an RN. This below is the real brain sheet I use daily at work and love, and I thought I'd share what I've come up with with you all for free! I see not just cardiac patients, but patients of all kinds and acuities, so I'd think this brain sheet would be useful on nearly any hospital unit (probably even pediatrics though I don't see peds).
GOOGLE DRIVE LINK TO THE PDF HERE.
Before I explain my brain sheet below and how I use it, I also wanted to announce I'm also making a YouTube channel!! I know there are many nursing-related YouTube channels out there...My goal is to make one that is the VERY BEST NURSING SCHOOL SUPPLEMENT on the internet. I will do my very best, for FREE, to teach you everything you ever wished you were getting out of nursing school but maybe aren't. It'll be similar to my megapost linked above in terms of quality content and real-world nursing tips, but much more.
I'll focus on things like: getting into nursing school, paying for nursing school (budgeting, fin aid tips, long-term considerations, and traps to avoid), how to land the best clinical placements in nursing school, thriving in clinical (real, tangible, actionable tips & tools, like this brain sheet!), best side jobs while in nursing school, Pharmacology (all the reliable and MOST USEFUL Pharm content you could ever want to know) and memorization tricks, NCLEX prep to rival some of the best NCLEX prep content out there (but for free!), skills review, specialty routes and how to pick, interviewing for RN jobs (choosing jobs to apply for, warning signs for jobs, the questions they'll ask in interview, how to respond, and what you should ask them), what new grad nurse orientation is like, devices you'll see in the hospital and how to use them, surviving your first year and thriving at it (real, practical tips), certifications (why/when to get them & how), intro to critical care nursing (enough to significantly prepare you if you go on to the ICU), unions, travel nursing resources and considerations, advanced practice routes, and more! Nothing in my YouTube channel will be content that I wouldn't be interested myself in watching even now for review as a working RN...I'm not going to be focusing on me or my life or "nurse lifestyle." I'm going to be focusing on content that to the best of my ability would be useful to ALL of you, and would rival the best nursing programs out there. In my past life I was also an HR Generalist & Manager for 2+ years and did about 1000 interviews on job applicants in that time, so I can help greatly with your job application prep. :) I ALSO WELCOME VIDEO / CHANNEL SUGGESTIONS AND IDEAS in the comments below! I'm starting filming soon.
Now back to this brain sheet... A quick walkthru of how I use the PDF each shift/work week, line-by-line to maximize your use (if you're interested in reading this part in detail): First of all, I typically work 3 nights in a row each week, and I use a multi-colored pen like these. On night 1, I write in black ink. When I come back the next night, for any updates on the patient I get, I write in a different color (e.g. write in blue for night 2 updates I get, write in green for night 3 updates). I typically use red only for things that I need to do urgently after receiving report. I print off 2 of these brain sheets on my night 1, because even though I only ever get a max 1:4 ratio, sometimes I'll get discharges/admits.
Line 1: Each night I write the name of my "buddy" RN, the other RN I'm paired with for the night. This is the person I handoff to when I go on lunch and vice versa, and the person I call first when I need another RN's help.
Line 2: The "Full Lookup Done" thing is for confirming I've FULLY looked up everything I need to know in the Electronic Health Record. I do this FULLY, and have a set list of things I look up for each patient at least on my Night 1. That list is for another post, but once I've done this for a patient and written down what I need to I check that box. I typically don't dig so much in the EHR on nights 2 and 3 because I typically know the patients pretty well by then.
Line 3: I write down my assigned CNA for this pt / room.
Line 4: Pt age/sex
Line 5: Code status. THIS IS BOLDED, IN WHITE TEXT AND BLACK HIGHLIGHT because I want to be sure to let anyone know of this info if I hand off this patient to them (like on my lunch). Same goes for every other box on the brain sheet: if it's a section that's BOLDED, WITH WHITE TEXT AND BLACK HIGHLIGHT, it means it's typically critical info to tell others if you're handing off the patient to them (e.g. CODE status, COVID status, primary diagnosis/why they're here, recent vitals, calls appropriately... etc.). Rows/boxes that are shaded fully grey are typically less-critical info...things that are less important (usually) to focus on to make sure your patient doesn't have a terrible outcome or die on your shift. :/
Line 6: Allergies (notice it's in grey, meaning it's important enough to write down, but I've not yet had a patient have a life-threatening allergic reaction in 1.5 years of nursing, so it's probably not critical to tell this to my buddy on my lunch so it's in grey)
Line 7: Weight and BMI (typically the admit weight or weight on my night 1, also in grey/not critical).
Line 8: Team (critical because I want to know EXACTLY who to contact and HOW [what pager #] if my patient starts deteriorating fast), so it's white background and not greyed meaning "critical" but not as critical as, say, CODE or COVID status.
Line 9: COVID or other isolation status (again, it's a white row but with white text and black background for the text with a warning icon because this is some of the most critical info to communicate to others)
Line 10: Admit date (not critical)
Line 11: Primary Diagnosis... what is the MAIN REASON this patient is here? This is super-critical, as whatever they're here for, there's a pretty good chance it could happen again usually (e.g. is the pt post-STEMI?), and whatever they're here for has undoubtedly certain unique risks associated that you should be trying to identify and thinking about.
Line 12: Admit Hx: What has there whole trajectory been since admission? Yeah maybe they came in for STEMI, but then what happened? Did they go to ICU for a while? Why? Did any other problems arise? Did they require surgery? PCI? Imaging? Pressors? How long have they been out of ICU? Etc.... Critical info (which is why this row is white and not greyed-out), but usually not quite as critical as their primary diagnosis, and the whole trajectory might not be critical to communicate to your RN buddy when you go on break.
Line 13: Relevant PMH. Oftentimes you can find like 30+ items of past medical history for your patient. Look at all those things, and then look at your next 12 hours with the patient, and consider their primary diagnosis and admit history. Write down generally only the things that you think will / could likely affect the patient in their next 12-24 hours. E.g. it might not be relevant that they had their appendix removed in 2005. But if the patient has sleep apnea, is congested, and is receiving sedatives?...that's probably very relevant. You get the idea. Write down what's probably relevant to this admission.
Line 14: Vitals. Very critical but I typically only write down stuff that is non-WDL, meaning "not Within Defined Limits." I don't write down if my patient has been typically getting blood pressures in the 110s / 80s...but I would write down if they're hypotensive, febrile, tachycardic, etc., and the relevant notify parameters set by the providers.
Line 15: Neuro. I work nights. Bed alarms are king. I mostly want to know if the patient is alert, oriented, calls appropriately, needs a bed alarm. This is the super-critical stuff your buddy RN mostly only cares to know too, unless your patient is experiencing acute/new neuro changes. RASS / CAM / GCS scores are helpful for giving data to all this but the actual data scores aren't typically critical for your buddy to know when you're only going to be gone for an hour.
Line 16: Amb/Device/Muscle/Falls. How does your patient ambulate, if they do? Do they do it independently (if not, again, do they need a bed alarm?)? Do they use any devices (like a front-wheeled walker)? Are they weak? Do they have a history of falls? Do they have bedrest orders due to a recent procedure / incision (sometimes pts can't get up for like 6+ hours or else risk bleeding)? Critical info to give on handoff even just for your break to your buddy RN.
Line 17: Pain. Does your patient have any PRN meds available, and if so, what and at what dosage(s)? Where's the pain and why? Any concerns for them getting/becoming oversedated? Critical info even for your lunch break.
Line 18: Cardiovascular. What rhythm is your patient in, if you know, and are they on telemetry? Are they having any known perfusion issues (peripherally or centrally), and are there any things we're watching out for related to those? Are they having any signs/symptoms that their heart is becoming more irritable/more prone to dysrhythmias (e.g. increasing in PVCs, runs of VT, increasing QTc length)? This stuff is critical to tell, ANYTIME you give handoff, if it's known.
Line 19: Respiratory. Is your patient using/needing any respiratory devices (e.g. nasal cannula, mask, CPAP)? Are they on continuous pulse ox at bedside or remotely? Are they taking off their respiratory device without telling you and falling asleep / any need for continuous pulse ox (e.g. OSA pt that declines respiratory devices)? All of this is critical to tell, even for a brief handoff while on lunch.
Line 20: Diet. Can your patient eat anything if they call? Are they NPO at 0000? Is their a limit on how much more fluid they can have? Have they had really high or really low blood sugars that your buddy needs to know?
Line 21: Other GI. This is less-critical to tell your buddy in a brief handoff, except for maybe how the patient voids (e.g. BSC) if they call.
Line 22: GU. How are they voiding (e.g. urinal while in bed)? Are they having dangerously low UO ( < 0.5 mL / kg / hr), and if so is team aware? Are they having retention and need to be catheterized soon? All critical info.
Line 23: Skin. Do they need to be turned Q2 or sooner to prevent/heal any ulcers? When were they last turned? Possibly important for your buddy to know on your lunch, but less critical.
Line 24: Active wounds. Do they have an ulcer? A skin tear? A groin site that's been oozy that we're watching? Misc Devices means things like wound vacs, chest tubes, or other miscellaneous devices that, if knocked over or messed up can often hurt the patient pretty quickly.
Line 25: Drips. What do they have running now / soon, why, and at what rate(s)? Did you verify the concentration of the drip and rate? Is the bag going to run out soon?
Line 26: Labs. Not TYPICALLY critical for your buddy to know while you go on lunch break, BUT share it if it provides insight: "Frank has been having more PVCs this shift than usual, but I called the team and we think it may be because he has a K+ of 3.5 right now so I just gave him 40 mEQ of K+ 15 minutes ago so hopefully that will improve soon. Team wants to be paged if he starts having more than 10 PVCs a minute or becomes otherwise symptomatic."
Line 27: Pt-specific / family. Any patient characteristics or patient / family preferences that are critical for your buddy to know if they have to go in the room? E.g. "This patient is comfort care but the family has not yet fully come to terms with it so PLEASE don't directly or indirectly refer to death and dying if you go in the room."
Line 28: Hospital plan and discharge plan. Not CRITICAL for your buddy to know usually when you're going on lunch (which is why it's greyed out), but you should look at the doctor, RN, and Case Management notes and talk with your other RNs and Charge RN to try to figure this out!
Line 29: Risks. Now look at EVERYTHING above and ask yourself, "What are the greatest RISKS for this patient over the course of my shift? Falls? Hypoxia? Another STEMI?" etc. etc. THIS STEP IS CRITICAL, otherwise someday you will be caught off-guard. Every good nurse does this step each shift!!!
Line 30: Day 2 3 4 RN. This is just where I write down who I'm giving handoff to on Day 2 (i.e. at the end of my Night 1 shift), Day 3 (end of my Night 2 shift), and Day 4 (end of my Night 3 shift). At the start of each shift when receiving handoff, I ask the other RN "are you back tomorrow?" If they say yes, I write their name down for that next day so I remember the next morning that they had this patient and don't need to hear EVERYTHING again, they only want to hear the updates.
Line 31: Gave Handoff. I just use a checkmark here at the end of every shift to absolutely confirm I gave handoff at the end of the shift. Your brain can play tricks on you at the end of a long 12-hour shift!
Backside / Page 2: This is a stripped-down version of page 1. This is just for RECEIVING BRIEF HANDOFF from my buddy RN when THEY go on lunch, during which time I will briefly have 8 patients (their 4 and my 4). These are the absolute need-to-know things I make sure I always know about their patients. The first table is for my Night 1 receiving my handoff from my buddy. The duplicate tables below that are for my Night 2 and Night 3, in case I have a different buddy with different patients (or if I have the same buddy but with some different patients due to admits / discharges).
And that's it!
I love this brain sheet because it makes life easy for me in a number of ways: 1) I know what to ask about when receiving report (I especially look for boxes for the patient that have no text in them yet), 2) it helps me with what to look up for my patients in the EHR and do it more quickly, 3) it helps me give a fast handoff by giving only the critical info when I'm going on break, 4) it helps me RECEIVE a FAST handoff by using page 2 on the back to get only the critical info on my buddy's patients when my BUDDY is going on break, 5) it helps me not to forget to give handoffs on all my patients when leaving after a long shift (nurses have done this! forgetting to give handoff on 1+ patients!) :/, and 6) it helps me give a SUPER thorough, system-by-system handoff when I am leaving a shift, knowing that I am giving a very organized and thoughtful handoff without forgetting anything. This system-by-system approach is also great practice for ICU if you ever intend on working in one as that's what they do up there! Using color-coding for your day 1, day 2 updates, day 3 updates takes this all to a whole new level, at least for me.
Anyway, hope this helps you all. I know my brain sheet might not be for everyone, but I would guess many here would like it and I put so much work into this that I couldn't not share -- and I welcome any suggestions or ideas for the YouTube channel! Thank you!

2020.11.29 00:05 Erhard_Eckmann [Event] University Tour

University Tour

As the push for Pan-Scandinavism has become a hot political issue in Norway, Nasjonalt Kalmarpartiet leaders Emilie Mehl and Jon Dale sought to push the discussion ever further by speaking to younger voters and academics. There was no better place to do this than by speaking to the voting-aged university students across the country. Having guest speakers is typically a popular event on a university campus, and to allow students to ask free-form questions to the leaders of the Pan-Scandinavian would be beneficial to give answers to those on the fence of supporting such an initiative.
The two leaders split their list of universities in Norway and began putting out requests to speak to the students in open-form Socratic debate/speech events. Ultimately, if they were able to make these public appearances, and change some minds about the initiative, the younger generation would take their political ambitions to the internet, which would eventually make its way to the media. All of this, whether good or bad, is excellent advertising for the Pan-Scandinavian movement.

The events were largely successful and challenging. Both of these leaders had to answer quite difficult questions over the course of the events. Largely, both leaders feel confident that this has expanded the popularity of their movement but also promoted a greater understanding across Norway about why Pan-Scandinavism is so important now, and what can be achieved by contribution to a greater good. There were always some challengers to the political position, like degrading Norwegian nationalism and the national image, however, the leaders were both successful at presenting the importance of preserving national and cultural identities within a proposed union super-state. A system of federalism that stresses the importance on the relative autonomy and rights of the member nations to dictate their legislation and desires should be the foundation of such a unified super-state. This was quite popular, even amongst the critics, which has allowed a gradual decay in the opposing political groups as more have signed on to the growing idea of Pan-Scandinavism. Social media has continued to show a growing trend in interest and popularity for the movement. This support has pushed the Nasjonalt Kalmarpartiet to believe that the time has arrived to begin making legislative changes and that the popular support is enough to begin moving in the direction of hard action towards their goals.

Instagrowth vs. AiGrow – What’s Better for Instagram Growth?
Keeping with our series comparing Instagram automation tools from around the web, today we’re looking at Instagrowth.
What’s Instagrowth? According to their website,
“Instagrowth easily automates everything such as your liking, commenting, and following activities based on specific hashtags, as well as unfollow users from different sources.”
Instagrowth is right in our neighbourhood of Instagram marketing, so we decided to put it to the test against our own Instagram marketing tool, AiGrow.
Here are the topics that we are going to look at:
  • Setup
  • Connecting Instagram account(s)
  • Features
  • Maintenance and Support
  • Price
  • Conclusion

Set up – Instagrowth vs. AiGrow

Instagrowth

Start by going to Instagrowth’s website and clicking on “START 7 DAYS FREE”.

If you see the icon like below, it means that you’ve installed the extension successfully.

https://preview.redd.it/t94x0kobj1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=494af2733ea744b46a1ee33663fd686ea3e28e57

That’s all. No download required.
With AiGrow, you don’t need verification via email or download. Moreover, AiGrow’s platform is available in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Persian.

Connecting Instagram Accounts

Instagrowth

To connect your Instagram account on Instagrowth, simply provide your login information like you would if you were logging into your Instagram on your phone.
Keep in mind that Instagram and Instagrowth app tabs must remain opened and connected to the internet at the same time.

AiGrow

When you are done with the setup, you then need to connect your IG account.
To do so, on your dashboard, click on “Add Instagram Account” and simply enter your IG username and password. For some accounts, Instagram may send a 6-digit code that AiGrow will ask for.
When you are finished with the connecting step, you can see your account on the dashboard. With AiGrow, you also have the ability to add multiple Instagram accounts.
https://preview.redd.it/60cwxz9mj1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=98ee8d6e7920bc35753d1b04f44fcc62d3a6df13

Features

Instagrowth

Basically, Instagragrowth works based on Follow/Unfollow, Follow for Follow, and Like for Like strategies by automating your Follows, Likes, and Unfollows.

FOLLOWS

Hashtags
Also, you have the ability to target your Follows based on Hashtags simply by going to Instagram and searching for a hashtag. Then, click the buttons “Like Posts with this tag” and “Collect from this tag” and click save.

https://preview.redd.it/8j8hqvmrj1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=de821f189fa076070aed752a8885aded28d28fea
Users
You can also automatically follow users based on if they are followers of a specific Instagram user. Once on the user’s page, click the button “Collect Followers” and then click “Save”. Make sure the “Activate” button on the Follows box is set to ON.
Here are the configurations of Follows:
  • You may set the Pool option, which is basically the Queue of users.
Users stay in Queue so the are followed later.
  • You may check or remove Users, Tags, Locations on this screen.
https://preview.redd.it/q2mjh8yuj1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=6c7eeb1865b861b9900a0e89d57460766d74aa79
Here are the Filters of Follows:
  • You may select the minimum and the maximum of Followers, Following and Posts for better targeting.
  • You may select to target Private or Public accounts.
  • Also, you may exclude accounts with specific keywords in their bio.
https://preview.redd.it/yjz66ztxj1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=1f0e40fcb01ab8bea6ba405ad75fe90c421afa98

UNFOLLOWS

Here are the configurations of Unfollows:
  • Check ‘Enable auto unfollows’ to unfollow new followed users. It’s recommended that you always have this option checked.
  • Uncheck ‘Do not UnFollow followers’ if you want to unfollow users that are following you.

LIKES

Here you may see the configurations for Likes:
  • By default, the “Collect Posts from Home Feed to like” is enabled. It likes any post on your feed.
  • If you activate “Collect Posts from Tags to Like”, visit a hashtag page on Insta and then click the button “Like Posts with this tag”.
  • Set “Time interval between Likes (seconds)” to at least 60 seconds or check the Recommended Settings.
https://preview.redd.it/un4gmgp3k1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=7e4c0b4c1752c40f8d0152636faffb4cdc62cb5b

AiGrow

AiGrow users have access to multiple features of this platform.
This includes:
  • Auto DMs and Growth Engine (auto Likes, follows, unfollows, and comments)
  • Scheduling Posts and Stories
  • Engagement Groups
  • Desktop Inbox
Let’s talk about each one by one.

AiGrow’s Growth Engine

AiGrow automates your Likes, comments, follows, unfollows and DMs.
You can also targeted your automated actions based on:
  • hashtag
  • location
  • follower of username
  • list of usernames
For example, if you provide AiGrow with the hashtag #fitness, you will automatically engage with only users on Instagram using #fitness.
You can target up to 30 hashtags, 20 locations, and 10 accounts.

https://preview.redd.it/d1ryuia7k1261.png?width=901&format=png&auto=webp&s=f6c98a229fc8f75de4afb87fe3576a9aaa3eeac4
You can even customize how quickly your account performs the actions and how many Likes, Follows, Unfollows, Comments, and DMs you want to perform on a daily basis.
As you begin engaging with your target audience, people will visit your profile in response, engage with your posts, and ultimately follow your page.
This way, you generate real followers who are actually interested in your page, unlike a bulk purchase service like Socialproof. When you use services like Socialproof, you get Likes and Views from random people and untargeted followers.
Note: AiGrow has safeguards put in place so that you never exceed Instagram’s daily limitations.
After setting up your targeting options, simply hit “Start Growth”. AiGrow will then run until you tell it to stop.
Even after you close your browser and turn your computer off, AiGrow will continue to run.

AiGrow’s Schedules your Posts and Stories

Instagram still doesn’t have an official way to upload and/or schedule your posts from your desktop.
Fortunately, AiGrow provides a completetly free desktop Instagram scheduler.
To access it, go to your AiGrow dashboard and click the tab called “Schedule Posts”.

https://preview.redd.it/1d0x2p7bk1261.png?width=605&format=png&auto=webp&s=57fd7b22e00b5ea8355d1d2549ab774fce63a291
From here, just write your caption, search and add the right hashtags, choose a date and time, select the accounts you want to upload to (you can upload the same post to multiple accounts), and finish by clicking “Schedule”.
As mentioned above, AiGrow even offers a hashtag research tool right inside the tool.
If you want to find the most popular hashtags related to your post, just search a keyword related to your post and AiGrow will display the most popular hashtags related to your keyword in descending order.
You can then easily add these hashtags to your post with one click.

AiGrow’s Engagement Groups

Engagement groups are groups of people on Instagram that agree to Like and comment on every post uploaded by another group member.

https://preview.redd.it/9ywi83adk1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=f997821ef431ca5732bfb7f4076ee3668f48da66
So if you are part of a Likes-only engagement group with 100 members, then when you upload a new post you will get 100 guaranteed Likes. This is on top of all of the Likes you get from Instagram users not in your engagement groups.
Whereas engagement groups outside of AiGrow are usually manual and require a fair amount work on your part, AiGrow’s engagement groups are completetly automated.
This means that all you need to do to get the Likes and comments from your engagement groups is upload your posts with AiGrow’s scheduler. That’s it!
Once your post goes live, all members in your engagement groups (you can be part of multiple groups at the same time) will automatically Like and comment on your post.
And because engagement groups are specific to the kind of Instagram page you have (photography, business, fitness, fashion, pets, etc.), all the engagement you get from your engagement groups come from real people in your Instagram community.
Joining engagement groups is as easy as finding the right group (you can search or scroll through the pages) and clicking “Join Group”.
AiGrow currently offers over 300 active, niche-based engagement groups catering to virtually any kind of Instagram account.
https://preview.redd.it/jnbjvthgk1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=8c4d3d73a45293a68ffb57ea7c74554451cad4ea
With AiGrow, you can also send automated DMs to targeted groups of people on Instagram.
You can send DMs to people based on:
  • Hashtags
  • Username lists
  • Connection to competitors
  • Current followers
  • New followers
You can also manage your DM inbox from your desktop.
This means you can filter DMs based on read, unread, sent and all. It also means you can search for DMs from specific people and reply to DMs on a one-to-one basis from your desktop.

Maintenance and Support

Instagrowth

Instagrowth has a “Troubleshoot – Errors – Help” which tries to describe all the issues that may come up.

https://preview.redd.it/forq9r2jk1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=c15170939248831bda944211503f4206b53c473f
But If you stumble upon any other problem, you can just send them a message via an Email because their chat is not available right now. They will reply as soon as possible.

AiGrow

If for whatever reason something forces your growth to stop, AiGrow’s team will automatically let you know through email and provide possible solutions, as shown in the example below:
https://preview.redd.it/wisfz66lk1261.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=90dafc58a107e4bf4ce6c1f6f1093d1e0f9c671f
If you experience an issue, you can also likely find an answer in AiGrow’s FAQ page. AiGrow also offers free one-on-one appointments to help get your account set up, and they also have a dedicated support email. AiGrow also offers a live chatbot for anyone with questions.

https://preview.redd.it/7y5pv8dnk1261.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=c0e789b222d3b481ce93c400e59cb679187be8cc

2020.11.28 16:32 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on smallstreetbets. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading week ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020.

Stocks on track to close out month of big gains as jobs data looms - (Source)

Stocks next week will come off one of their best months ever into a busy week of economic data and the ongoing tensions between the spreading virus and positive news on vaccines and treatments.
Another highlight of the week is expected to be Tuesday’s testimony from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before the Senate Banking Committee. They will be discussing the emergency measures taken to help the economy after the outbreak of the pandemic.
The Dow was up nearly 13% for November so far, and if it holds its gains into Monday’s close, it will chalk up its best month since January, 1987. The S&P 500 closed at a record 3,638 and was up 11.3% for the month. The gain is its best performance since April’s 12.7%, which was the third best month for the S&P 500 since its origin in 1957.
November was a big month also for market rotation, with investors favoring stocks that would benefit from a rebounding economy and showing less love for long-held favorites among big tech and internet names. Financials were up more than 17% in the past month, and industrials rose nearly 15%, as investors bet vaccines would help the economy return to normal next year.
Tech notched a single digit gain for the month so far and lagged the broader market. But some strategists expect big tech and internet names, stay-at-home stocks, to fare better in December.
“The death of big tech has been announced over and over again, and we see that the market doesn’t abandon them, but in fact migrates to big tech whenever there are concerns,” said Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial. “The post-pandemic question is whether big tech can co-exist with the small and mid-cap.” Small caps were one of the biggest winners in November, with the Russell 2000, up 20.6%.
“We did not see major selling in Nasdaq,” as investors put funds in cyclicals and value, she said. Nasdaq was up 11.9% for the month so far, slightly better than the S&P 500.
Experts have warned that there could an even bigger surge in virus cases, following the Thanksgiving holiday which could start to show up in the coming week. There have been more than 12.6 million cases in the U.S.

Jobs report

There are some important economic reports in the week ahead, the most important being Friday’s November employment report. There is is also ISM manufacturing data Tuesday.
“My thought here is the data is going to matter because if you listen to the Fed, and if you read through the Fed’s minutes, they’re in transition here. They’re becoming more concerned about the rise in Covid cases, certainly about the lack of fiscal support,” said Gregory Faranello, head of U.S. rates at AmeriVet Securities.
Strategists say another key report will be weekly jobless claims, which showed an increase in each of the last two weeks. “The employment data clearly has been weakening,” said Faranello. If it continues, it will keep a lid on Treasury yields, which move opposite prices.
Jefferies economist Tom Simons expects the elimination of Census Bureau workers to detract from the job gains in November, and he forecasts the economy added just 340,000 jobs.
“It is hard to envision a particularly strong report coming out on Friday,” noted Simons.
Bank of America economists forecast just 150,000 payrolls were added for November, compared to 638,000 in October. The private sector is expected to add 300,000, but expected government layoffs impacted total payrolls in their forecast.
Faranello said he expects the bond market to be much more active than normal this December because of the pending change in the White House, as well as the runoff election in Georgia Jan. 5 that will decide whether Republicans keep their Senate majority. The market has also been concerned about the lack of stimulus from Washington.
“The theme in the market right now is definitely hope and optimism versus the on the ground dynamic with Covid,” said Faranello. “The real question is can the vaccine rally hold up if we see the virus rise and we continue to see shutdowns. How does the market perform in light of that?”
Krosby said she expects the market to watch for vaccine news. “The question I think is now whether or not we see the emergency authorization given to Pfizer and followed by Moderna,” she said. “I think that is a catalyst to the market because that is when you will start to see the vaccine distributed.” The Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisory committee has a meeting set for Dec. 10 to discuss emergency authorization for the Pfizer
Analysts expect investors to continue to gravitate to value and cyclicals, since they could have the biggest gains compared to already high priced big tech. But tech is still attractive.
“We still see the Nasdaq leading,” said Krosby. “Whereas we enjoyed the vaccine related boom in the market, the fact is that investors and and traders are looking for big tech names to give them that growth in earnings and revenues.”

December Almanac: Small Caps Have Shined

December is now the number three S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials month since 1950, averaging gains of 1.5% on each index. It’s the top Russell 2000 (1979) month and third best for NASDAQ (1971) and Russell 1000 (1979). In 2018, DJIA suffered its worst December performance since 1931 and its fourth worst December going all the way back to 1901. However, the market rarely falls precipitously in December and a repeat of 2018 is not highly likely. When December is down it is usually a turning point in the market—near a top or bottom. If the market has experienced fantastic gains leading up to December, stocks can pullback in the first half of the month.
In the last seventeen election years, December’s ranking changed modestly to #2 DJIA, #5 NASDAQ, but S&P 500 remains #3. Small caps, measured by the Russell 2000, have had a field day in election-year Decembers. Since 1980, the Russell 2000 has lost ground just once in ten election years in December. The average small cap gain in all ten years is a solid 3.0%. The Russell 2000’s single loss was in 1980 when the Prime Rate was 21.5%.

Sector Weights Rising and Falling

For most of the past year, one significant trend on a sector by sector basis has been the outperformance of sectors like Technology and Consumer Discretionary. The relative strength lines of these sectors have consistently shown outperformance versus the rest of the S&P 500 as a whole, but since August, other sectors have begun to take the wheel. As we noted in today's Sector Snapshot, just about every sector has had a banner month in November with some of the biggest month to date rallies of the past 30 years, but some sectors have seen much larger returns than others. One of the best examples of this has been Energy which has risen over 35% in November. Similarly, Financials has risen an astounding 19.5% this month compared to more modest but still significant rallies of around 10% from Tech and Consumer Discretionary. Given those large degrees of outperformance, the relative strength lines of Energy and Financials have taken a sharp turn higher in recent weeks. Similarly, they have seen a turnaround in their weightings in the S&P 500 as shown in the charts below.
Over the past three months, the Financial sector has gained a full percentage point weighting while the Technology sector has lost 1.36 percentage points with a decline in weighting in three straight months. For Financials, that is the largest gain in weighting in a three month span since January 2017. For Tech, outside of the reshuffling in 2018 that saw a large share of its weight change into Communication Services, the last time the sector lost this much or more in weighting in three months was November of 2008. Prior to this recent string of losing weight over the past three months, Tech had seen weight gain in every month from October of last year through August. Even though the weight loss has been significant, it has only put a dent in the increased share of the entirety of the past year as the sector's weight is only back down to where it was in May.
Similarly, looking at the other sectors, while Financials have added a full percentage point in share over the past few months, that follows nine months of declines running from last December through August. That brings the sector's weighting back above 10% in the S&P 500, but that is only at the highest level since March. Similarly, Materials and Industrials have also seen their weights rise for three and four months in a row, respectively. As for Energy, the 0.44 percentage point gain in November is set to snap six straight months of declines; the longest such streak since at least 1990. As with Financials, that turn around this month has only put a dent in the longer term trend of weight loss as Energy's weighting is now only back to its highest level since July. Opposite of Energy, Consumer Discretionary is on pace to lose weight for the first time since March.

A Month to Be Thankful For

Heading into today with just three trading days left in November, the average Russell 1,000 stock was up 17.44% month to date. As shown below, not one of the five largest stocks is up even close to 17% on the month. For a market that had recently been driven higher in large part because of the five mega-cap Tech names, November has seen the mega-caps stall a bit while the rest of the market has seen broad participation. This is the type of breadth that market bulls have been waiting and hoping for.
Of the 35 largest stocks in the Russell 1,000, Tesla (TSLA) is up the most so far this month with a gain of 43%. The other big winners include Chevron (CVX), JP Morgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Disney (DIS), and Comcast (CMCSA). Not one stock in the top 35 is down on the month, but the ones that are up the least are Netflix (NFLX), Procter & Gamble (PG), Amazon (AMZN), and Home Depot (HD).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Looking at sectors, the average Energy stock in the Russell 1,000 is up 46% month-to-date but still down 27% year-to-date. Three other sectors have seen their stocks average MTD gains of more than 20%: Financials, Industrials, and Real Estate. Stocks in the Health Care and Utilities sectors are up the least on an average basis this month, but even these underperformers are still up more than 5%.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
There are 37 stocks in the Russell 1,000 up more than 50% so far in November. Below is a list of this month's biggest winners. Coty (COTY) and Nordstrom (JWN) stand out the most with gains of more than 100%, followed by Spirit AeroSystems (SPR), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Diamondback Energy (FANG), and Empire State Realty (ESRT). The list of biggest winners this month is full of names that got hit hardest by COVID in areas like energy, travel, retail, and real estate. Notably, while these stocks are up an average of 68.5% in November, they're still down an average of 23% on the year. On a median basis, they're down even more year-to-date at -31.55%.

Biden - Best Since Reagan

The market started off November on a positive note, and even after the election has continued to add to its gains. Through the close today (11/24), the S&P 500 is up 7.90% since the close on Election Day. Relative to every other Presidential election since the beginning of the S&P back in 1928, the three-week performance of the S&P 500 following this Election Day ranks as the second-best of all time. It came down right to the wire, but the only other US President to see a stronger market reaction to their election (or re-election) was Ronald Reagan in 1980 (7.97%). Behind Reagan and Biden, the only other Presidents where the S&P 500 experienced an upside move of 5%+ in reaction to their elections were Hoover in 1928 and Clinton in 1996.
On the downside, the most negative reaction of the market in the three weeks after Election Day was the 14.75% decline following President Obama's election in 2008. In addition to Obama, the S&P 500's four other three-week downside moves of more than 5% came after the elections of Truman in 1948, the election of George W Bush in 2000 (although at the time it was unknown who was the winner of that election), the election of Franklin D Roosevelt in 1932, and Dwight D Eisenhower's re-election in 1956.
In aggregate, the S&P 500 hasn't historically responded all that great in the three weeks after a Presidential election. For every one since 1928, the median return of the S&P 500 in the three weeks after Election Day has been a gain of just 0.35%. Breaking out returns by party, in the three weeks after a Democratic candidate is elected, the S&P 500's median performance is a decline of 1.11% compared to a median gain of 3.04% when a Republican is elected.

DJIA 1,000 Point Thresholds

What a wild year 2020 has been! With the DJIA closing above 30,000 today, it was the second first-time upside break of a 1,000 point threshold this year. While there have only been two new upside crosses of 1,000 point thresholds, due to the sharp pullback in March from the pandemic that briefly took the DJIA below 19,000 on a closing basis, there have actually been 12 different upside 1,000 point thresholds at some point in the year.
The table below lists the first time that the DJIA closed above each 1,000 point threshold in its history along with the total number of times the index has crossed that level on a closing basis throughout history. The thousand point level that has seen the most crosses on a closing basis was 11,000 (87 crosses) while 10,000 ranks second at 67.
Obviously, the higher the DJIA goes, the less impactful a move of 1,000 points becomes. At current levels, 1,000 points represents just 3.3%, which is really nothing more than a very bad day in the market. Given the diminishing impact of 1,000 points in the DJIA these days, their significance declines. Even still, the twelve new 1,000-point crosses since the 2016 election has given the President (who has publicly discussed the stock market more than any other President in history) plenty of ammunition to tweet about.

30,000 Reasons To Be Thankful

As 2020 winds down, it has been an extremely tough year on all of us. Still, there are many reasons to be thankful and today we will share some reasons investors should be thankful.
Stocks have had one of the largest reversals ever in 2020, something to be thankful for. In fact, this could be the first year ever to see the S&P 500 down more than 30% peak-to-trough and finish higher.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We should also be thankful that Congress was split in 2020, likely marking the 11th consecutive year the S&P 500 gained under a split Congress. Gridlock is good they tell us and that very well could be true yet again.
Want something else to be thankful for? We likely will have a split Congress for another two years after the two Georgia runoffs are official.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that it is looking like stocks once again will be higher the year a President is up for re-election. In fact, you have to go back to FDR in the ‘40s the last time the S&P 500 was lower for the year when a President was up for re-election.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the fastest bear market in history (only 16 days) is officially a thing of the past.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are thankful that we are in a new bull market, which if history plays out once again, could have a lot of life left to it. In fact, the average bull market has lasted more than five years.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
“Let’s be thankful that the huge move off the March lows was a major clue of more strength,” explained LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “We noted at the time (many different ways) that the enormous move we saw off the March lows likely suggested significantly higher prices, while many ignored the market signals and instead looked for a re-test for months on end.”
The 20-days off the March lows was the second best 20-day rally ever and sure enough, the returns have been very strong.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are finally seeing many stocks participate in this bull market, another reason to be thankful. In fact, the Value Line Arithmetic Index recently made new all-time highs. This index is a great look at what the ‘average’ stock is doing and is a sign that this move isn’t being led by just a few large cap tech stocks.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the NYSE Cumulative Advance/Decline line is at new highs. This looks at how many stocks are going up versus down and new highs are a sign of very healthy participation.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Emerging markets have started to turn higher and we are thankful that this group could be on the verge of a major breakout to new highs, clearing their peak from 2007. As we move into ’21, this is one group we think could continue to do quite well for investors.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Global investors should be thankful, as the MSCI Global Index broke out to new highs as well, suggesting this rally isn’t only about the US anymore.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We upgraded our view on small caps in September and the Russell 2000 Index is currently on pace to have its best monthly return ever. Investors should be thankful that this group is finally participating, as there are many more small caps than large caps, another sign of improving breadth, while small caps are also more domestic by nature and could be suggesting a strong US economy next year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Investors should be thankful for the incredible strength around the election, as the S&P 500 gained more than 1% four consecutive days. This is extremely rare, yet, extremely bullish going out a year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
As we showed in Frothy Sentiment Rides Bullish Technicals, the huge number of stocks in the S&P 500 making new monthly highs should make bulls quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Earnings are expected to see a major bounce back, as the global economy gets back online next year, making many investors quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Economic forecasts may not develop as predicted.
As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the final reason to be thankful? Dow at 30,000!

2020.11.28 16:30 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on wallstreetbets. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading week ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020.

Stocks on track to close out month of big gains as jobs data looms - (Source)

Stocks next week will come off one of their best months ever into a busy week of economic data and the ongoing tensions between the spreading virus and positive news on vaccines and treatments.
Another highlight of the week is expected to be Tuesday’s testimony from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before the Senate Banking Committee. They will be discussing the emergency measures taken to help the economy after the outbreak of the pandemic.
The Dow was up nearly 13% for November so far, and if it holds its gains into Monday’s close, it will chalk up its best month since January, 1987. The S&P 500 closed at a record 3,638 and was up 11.3% for the month. The gain is its best performance since April’s 12.7%, which was the third best month for the S&P 500 since its origin in 1957.
November was a big month also for market rotation, with investors favoring stocks that would benefit from a rebounding economy and showing less love for long-held favorites among big tech and internet names. Financials were up more than 17% in the past month, and industrials rose nearly 15%, as investors bet vaccines would help the economy return to normal next year.
Tech notched a single digit gain for the month so far and lagged the broader market. But some strategists expect big tech and internet names, stay-at-home stocks, to fare better in December.
“The death of big tech has been announced over and over again, and we see that the market doesn’t abandon them, but in fact migrates to big tech whenever there are concerns,” said Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial. “The post-pandemic question is whether big tech can co-exist with the small and mid-cap.” Small caps were one of the biggest winners in November, with the Russell 2000, up 20.6%.
“We did not see major selling in Nasdaq,” as investors put funds in cyclicals and value, she said. Nasdaq was up 11.9% for the month so far, slightly better than the S&P 500.
Experts have warned that there could an even bigger surge in virus cases, following the Thanksgiving holiday which could start to show up in the coming week. There have been more than 12.6 million cases in the U.S.

Jobs report

There are some important economic reports in the week ahead, the most important being Friday’s November employment report. There is is also ISM manufacturing data Tuesday.
“My thought here is the data is going to matter because if you listen to the Fed, and if you read through the Fed’s minutes, they’re in transition here. They’re becoming more concerned about the rise in Covid cases, certainly about the lack of fiscal support,” said Gregory Faranello, head of U.S. rates at AmeriVet Securities.
Strategists say another key report will be weekly jobless claims, which showed an increase in each of the last two weeks. “The employment data clearly has been weakening,” said Faranello. If it continues, it will keep a lid on Treasury yields, which move opposite prices.
Jefferies economist Tom Simons expects the elimination of Census Bureau workers to detract from the job gains in November, and he forecasts the economy added just 340,000 jobs.
“It is hard to envision a particularly strong report coming out on Friday,” noted Simons.
Bank of America economists forecast just 150,000 payrolls were added for November, compared to 638,000 in October. The private sector is expected to add 300,000, but expected government layoffs impacted total payrolls in their forecast.
Faranello said he expects the bond market to be much more active than normal this December because of the pending change in the White House, as well as the runoff election in Georgia Jan. 5 that will decide whether Republicans keep their Senate majority. The market has also been concerned about the lack of stimulus from Washington.
“The theme in the market right now is definitely hope and optimism versus the on the ground dynamic with Covid,” said Faranello. “The real question is can the vaccine rally hold up if we see the virus rise and we continue to see shutdowns. How does the market perform in light of that?”
Krosby said she expects the market to watch for vaccine news. “The question I think is now whether or not we see the emergency authorization given to Pfizer and followed by Moderna,” she said. “I think that is a catalyst to the market because that is when you will start to see the vaccine distributed.” The Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisory committee has a meeting set for Dec. 10 to discuss emergency authorization for the Pfizer
Analysts expect investors to continue to gravitate to value and cyclicals, since they could have the biggest gains compared to already high priced big tech. But tech is still attractive.
“We still see the Nasdaq leading,” said Krosby. “Whereas we enjoyed the vaccine related boom in the market, the fact is that investors and and traders are looking for big tech names to give them that growth in earnings and revenues.”

December Almanac: Small Caps Have Shined

December is now the number three S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials month since 1950, averaging gains of 1.5% on each index. It’s the top Russell 2000 (1979) month and third best for NASDAQ (1971) and Russell 1000 (1979). In 2018, DJIA suffered its worst December performance since 1931 and its fourth worst December going all the way back to 1901. However, the market rarely falls precipitously in December and a repeat of 2018 is not highly likely. When December is down it is usually a turning point in the market—near a top or bottom. If the market has experienced fantastic gains leading up to December, stocks can pullback in the first half of the month.
In the last seventeen election years, December’s ranking changed modestly to #2 DJIA, #5 NASDAQ, but S&P 500 remains #3. Small caps, measured by the Russell 2000, have had a field day in election-year Decembers. Since 1980, the Russell 2000 has lost ground just once in ten election years in December. The average small cap gain in all ten years is a solid 3.0%. The Russell 2000’s single loss was in 1980 when the Prime Rate was 21.5%.

Sector Weights Rising and Falling

For most of the past year, one significant trend on a sector by sector basis has been the outperformance of sectors like Technology and Consumer Discretionary. The relative strength lines of these sectors have consistently shown outperformance versus the rest of the S&P 500 as a whole, but since August, other sectors have begun to take the wheel. As we noted in today's Sector Snapshot, just about every sector has had a banner month in November with some of the biggest month to date rallies of the past 30 years, but some sectors have seen much larger returns than others. One of the best examples of this has been Energy which has risen over 35% in November. Similarly, Financials has risen an astounding 19.5% this month compared to more modest but still significant rallies of around 10% from Tech and Consumer Discretionary. Given those large degrees of outperformance, the relative strength lines of Energy and Financials have taken a sharp turn higher in recent weeks. Similarly, they have seen a turnaround in their weightings in the S&P 500 as shown in the charts below.
Over the past three months, the Financial sector has gained a full percentage point weighting while the Technology sector has lost 1.36 percentage points with a decline in weighting in three straight months. For Financials, that is the largest gain in weighting in a three month span since January 2017. For Tech, outside of the reshuffling in 2018 that saw a large share of its weight change into Communication Services, the last time the sector lost this much or more in weighting in three months was November of 2008. Prior to this recent string of losing weight over the past three months, Tech had seen weight gain in every month from October of last year through August. Even though the weight loss has been significant, it has only put a dent in the increased share of the entirety of the past year as the sector's weight is only back down to where it was in May.
Similarly, looking at the other sectors, while Financials have added a full percentage point in share over the past few months, that follows nine months of declines running from last December through August. That brings the sector's weighting back above 10% in the S&P 500, but that is only at the highest level since March. Similarly, Materials and Industrials have also seen their weights rise for three and four months in a row, respectively. As for Energy, the 0.44 percentage point gain in November is set to snap six straight months of declines; the longest such streak since at least 1990. As with Financials, that turn around this month has only put a dent in the longer term trend of weight loss as Energy's weighting is now only back to its highest level since July. Opposite of Energy, Consumer Discretionary is on pace to lose weight for the first time since March.

A Month to Be Thankful For

Heading into today with just three trading days left in November, the average Russell 1,000 stock was up 17.44% month to date. As shown below, not one of the five largest stocks is up even close to 17% on the month. For a market that had recently been driven higher in large part because of the five mega-cap Tech names, November has seen the mega-caps stall a bit while the rest of the market has seen broad participation. This is the type of breadth that market bulls have been waiting and hoping for.
Of the 35 largest stocks in the Russell 1,000, Tesla (TSLA) is up the most so far this month with a gain of 43%. The other big winners include Chevron (CVX), JP Morgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Disney (DIS), and Comcast (CMCSA). Not one stock in the top 35 is down on the month, but the ones that are up the least are Netflix (NFLX), Procter & Gamble (PG), Amazon (AMZN), and Home Depot (HD).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Looking at sectors, the average Energy stock in the Russell 1,000 is up 46% month-to-date but still down 27% year-to-date. Three other sectors have seen their stocks average MTD gains of more than 20%: Financials, Industrials, and Real Estate. Stocks in the Health Care and Utilities sectors are up the least on an average basis this month, but even these underperformers are still up more than 5%.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
There are 37 stocks in the Russell 1,000 up more than 50% so far in November. Below is a list of this month's biggest winners. Coty (COTY) and Nordstrom (JWN) stand out the most with gains of more than 100%, followed by Spirit AeroSystems (SPR), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Diamondback Energy (FANG), and Empire State Realty (ESRT). The list of biggest winners this month is full of names that got hit hardest by COVID in areas like energy, travel, retail, and real estate. Notably, while these stocks are up an average of 68.5% in November, they're still down an average of 23% on the year. On a median basis, they're down even more year-to-date at -31.55%.

Biden - Best Since Reagan

The market started off November on a positive note, and even after the election has continued to add to its gains. Through the close today (11/24), the S&P 500 is up 7.90% since the close on Election Day. Relative to every other Presidential election since the beginning of the S&P back in 1928, the three-week performance of the S&P 500 following this Election Day ranks as the second-best of all time. It came down right to the wire, but the only other US President to see a stronger market reaction to their election (or re-election) was Ronald Reagan in 1980 (7.97%). Behind Reagan and Biden, the only other Presidents where the S&P 500 experienced an upside move of 5%+ in reaction to their elections were Hoover in 1928 and Clinton in 1996.
On the downside, the most negative reaction of the market in the three weeks after Election Day was the 14.75% decline following President Obama's election in 2008. In addition to Obama, the S&P 500's four other three-week downside moves of more than 5% came after the elections of Truman in 1948, the election of George W Bush in 2000 (although at the time it was unknown who was the winner of that election), the election of Franklin D Roosevelt in 1932, and Dwight D Eisenhower's re-election in 1956.
In aggregate, the S&P 500 hasn't historically responded all that great in the three weeks after a Presidential election. For every one since 1928, the median return of the S&P 500 in the three weeks after Election Day has been a gain of just 0.35%. Breaking out returns by party, in the three weeks after a Democratic candidate is elected, the S&P 500's median performance is a decline of 1.11% compared to a median gain of 3.04% when a Republican is elected.

DJIA 1,000 Point Thresholds

What a wild year 2020 has been! With the DJIA closing above 30,000 today, it was the second first-time upside break of a 1,000 point threshold this year. While there have only been two new upside crosses of 1,000 point thresholds, due to the sharp pullback in March from the pandemic that briefly took the DJIA below 19,000 on a closing basis, there have actually been 12 different upside 1,000 point thresholds at some point in the year.
The table below lists the first time that the DJIA closed above each 1,000 point threshold in its history along with the total number of times the index has crossed that level on a closing basis throughout history. The thousand point level that has seen the most crosses on a closing basis was 11,000 (87 crosses) while 10,000 ranks second at 67.
Obviously, the higher the DJIA goes, the less impactful a move of 1,000 points becomes. At current levels, 1,000 points represents just 3.3%, which is really nothing more than a very bad day in the market. Given the diminishing impact of 1,000 points in the DJIA these days, their significance declines. Even still, the twelve new 1,000-point crosses since the 2016 election has given the President (who has publicly discussed the stock market more than any other President in history) plenty of ammunition to tweet about.

30,000 Reasons To Be Thankful

As 2020 winds down, it has been an extremely tough year on all of us. Still, there are many reasons to be thankful and today we will share some reasons investors should be thankful.
Stocks have had one of the largest reversals ever in 2020, something to be thankful for. In fact, this could be the first year ever to see the S&P 500 down more than 30% peak-to-trough and finish higher.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We should also be thankful that Congress was split in 2020, likely marking the 11th consecutive year the S&P 500 gained under a split Congress. Gridlock is good they tell us and that very well could be true yet again.
Want something else to be thankful for? We likely will have a split Congress for another two years after the two Georgia runoffs are official.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that it is looking like stocks once again will be higher the year a President is up for re-election. In fact, you have to go back to FDR in the ‘40s the last time the S&P 500 was lower for the year when a President was up for re-election.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the fastest bear market in history (only 16 days) is officially a thing of the past.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are thankful that we are in a new bull market, which if history plays out once again, could have a lot of life left to it. In fact, the average bull market has lasted more than five years.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
“Let’s be thankful that the huge move off the March lows was a major clue of more strength,” explained LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “We noted at the time (many different ways) that the enormous move we saw off the March lows likely suggested significantly higher prices, while many ignored the market signals and instead looked for a re-test for months on end.”
The 20-days off the March lows was the second best 20-day rally ever and sure enough, the returns have been very strong.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are finally seeing many stocks participate in this bull market, another reason to be thankful. In fact, the Value Line Arithmetic Index recently made new all-time highs. This index is a great look at what the ‘average’ stock is doing and is a sign that this move isn’t being led by just a few large cap tech stocks.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the NYSE Cumulative Advance/Decline line is at new highs. This looks at how many stocks are going up versus down and new highs are a sign of very healthy participation.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Emerging markets have started to turn higher and we are thankful that this group could be on the verge of a major breakout to new highs, clearing their peak from 2007. As we move into ’21, this is one group we think could continue to do quite well for investors.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Global investors should be thankful, as the MSCI Global Index broke out to new highs as well, suggesting this rally isn’t only about the US anymore.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We upgraded our view on small caps in September and the Russell 2000 Index is currently on pace to have its best monthly return ever. Investors should be thankful that this group is finally participating, as there are many more small caps than large caps, another sign of improving breadth, while small caps are also more domestic by nature and could be suggesting a strong US economy next year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Investors should be thankful for the incredible strength around the election, as the S&P 500 gained more than 1% four consecutive days. This is extremely rare, yet, extremely bullish going out a year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
As we showed in Frothy Sentiment Rides Bullish Technicals, the huge number of stocks in the S&P 500 making new monthly highs should make bulls quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Earnings are expected to see a major bounce back, as the global economy gets back online next year, making many investors quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Economic forecasts may not develop as predicted.
As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the final reason to be thankful? Dow at 30,000!

2020.11.28 16:29 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on stocks. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading week ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020.

Stocks on track to close out month of big gains as jobs data looms - (Source)

Stocks next week will come off one of their best months ever into a busy week of economic data and the ongoing tensions between the spreading virus and positive news on vaccines and treatments.
Another highlight of the week is expected to be Tuesday’s testimony from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before the Senate Banking Committee. They will be discussing the emergency measures taken to help the economy after the outbreak of the pandemic.
The Dow was up nearly 13% for November so far, and if it holds its gains into Monday’s close, it will chalk up its best month since January, 1987. The S&P 500 closed at a record 3,638 and was up 11.3% for the month. The gain is its best performance since April’s 12.7%, which was the third best month for the S&P 500 since its origin in 1957.
November was a big month also for market rotation, with investors favoring stocks that would benefit from a rebounding economy and showing less love for long-held favorites among big tech and internet names. Financials were up more than 17% in the past month, and industrials rose nearly 15%, as investors bet vaccines would help the economy return to normal next year.
Tech notched a single digit gain for the month so far and lagged the broader market. But some strategists expect big tech and internet names, stay-at-home stocks, to fare better in December.
“The death of big tech has been announced over and over again, and we see that the market doesn’t abandon them, but in fact migrates to big tech whenever there are concerns,” said Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial. “The post-pandemic question is whether big tech can co-exist with the small and mid-cap.” Small caps were one of the biggest winners in November, with the Russell 2000, up 20.6%.
“We did not see major selling in Nasdaq,” as investors put funds in cyclicals and value, she said. Nasdaq was up 11.9% for the month so far, slightly better than the S&P 500.
Experts have warned that there could an even bigger surge in virus cases, following the Thanksgiving holiday which could start to show up in the coming week. There have been more than 12.6 million cases in the U.S.

Jobs report

There are some important economic reports in the week ahead, the most important being Friday’s November employment report. There is is also ISM manufacturing data Tuesday.
“My thought here is the data is going to matter because if you listen to the Fed, and if you read through the Fed’s minutes, they’re in transition here. They’re becoming more concerned about the rise in Covid cases, certainly about the lack of fiscal support,” said Gregory Faranello, head of U.S. rates at AmeriVet Securities.
Strategists say another key report will be weekly jobless claims, which showed an increase in each of the last two weeks. “The employment data clearly has been weakening,” said Faranello. If it continues, it will keep a lid on Treasury yields, which move opposite prices.
Jefferies economist Tom Simons expects the elimination of Census Bureau workers to detract from the job gains in November, and he forecasts the economy added just 340,000 jobs.
“It is hard to envision a particularly strong report coming out on Friday,” noted Simons.
Bank of America economists forecast just 150,000 payrolls were added for November, compared to 638,000 in October. The private sector is expected to add 300,000, but expected government layoffs impacted total payrolls in their forecast.
Faranello said he expects the bond market to be much more active than normal this December because of the pending change in the White House, as well as the runoff election in Georgia Jan. 5 that will decide whether Republicans keep their Senate majority. The market has also been concerned about the lack of stimulus from Washington.
“The theme in the market right now is definitely hope and optimism versus the on the ground dynamic with Covid,” said Faranello. “The real question is can the vaccine rally hold up if we see the virus rise and we continue to see shutdowns. How does the market perform in light of that?”
Krosby said she expects the market to watch for vaccine news. “The question I think is now whether or not we see the emergency authorization given to Pfizer and followed by Moderna,” she said. “I think that is a catalyst to the market because that is when you will start to see the vaccine distributed.” The Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisory committee has a meeting set for Dec. 10 to discuss emergency authorization for the Pfizer
Analysts expect investors to continue to gravitate to value and cyclicals, since they could have the biggest gains compared to already high priced big tech. But tech is still attractive.
“We still see the Nasdaq leading,” said Krosby. “Whereas we enjoyed the vaccine related boom in the market, the fact is that investors and and traders are looking for big tech names to give them that growth in earnings and revenues.”

December Almanac: Small Caps Have Shined

December is now the number three S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials month since 1950, averaging gains of 1.5% on each index. It’s the top Russell 2000 (1979) month and third best for NASDAQ (1971) and Russell 1000 (1979). In 2018, DJIA suffered its worst December performance since 1931 and its fourth worst December going all the way back to 1901. However, the market rarely falls precipitously in December and a repeat of 2018 is not highly likely. When December is down it is usually a turning point in the market—near a top or bottom. If the market has experienced fantastic gains leading up to December, stocks can pullback in the first half of the month.
In the last seventeen election years, December’s ranking changed modestly to #2 DJIA, #5 NASDAQ, but S&P 500 remains #3. Small caps, measured by the Russell 2000, have had a field day in election-year Decembers. Since 1980, the Russell 2000 has lost ground just once in ten election years in December. The average small cap gain in all ten years is a solid 3.0%. The Russell 2000’s single loss was in 1980 when the Prime Rate was 21.5%.

Sector Weights Rising and Falling

For most of the past year, one significant trend on a sector by sector basis has been the outperformance of sectors like Technology and Consumer Discretionary. The relative strength lines of these sectors have consistently shown outperformance versus the rest of the S&P 500 as a whole, but since August, other sectors have begun to take the wheel. As we noted in today's Sector Snapshot, just about every sector has had a banner month in November with some of the biggest month to date rallies of the past 30 years, but some sectors have seen much larger returns than others. One of the best examples of this has been Energy which has risen over 35% in November. Similarly, Financials has risen an astounding 19.5% this month compared to more modest but still significant rallies of around 10% from Tech and Consumer Discretionary. Given those large degrees of outperformance, the relative strength lines of Energy and Financials have taken a sharp turn higher in recent weeks. Similarly, they have seen a turnaround in their weightings in the S&P 500 as shown in the charts below.
Over the past three months, the Financial sector has gained a full percentage point weighting while the Technology sector has lost 1.36 percentage points with a decline in weighting in three straight months. For Financials, that is the largest gain in weighting in a three month span since January 2017. For Tech, outside of the reshuffling in 2018 that saw a large share of its weight change into Communication Services, the last time the sector lost this much or more in weighting in three months was November of 2008. Prior to this recent string of losing weight over the past three months, Tech had seen weight gain in every month from October of last year through August. Even though the weight loss has been significant, it has only put a dent in the increased share of the entirety of the past year as the sector's weight is only back down to where it was in May.
Similarly, looking at the other sectors, while Financials have added a full percentage point in share over the past few months, that follows nine months of declines running from last December through August. That brings the sector's weighting back above 10% in the S&P 500, but that is only at the highest level since March. Similarly, Materials and Industrials have also seen their weights rise for three and four months in a row, respectively. As for Energy, the 0.44 percentage point gain in November is set to snap six straight months of declines; the longest such streak since at least 1990. As with Financials, that turn around this month has only put a dent in the longer term trend of weight loss as Energy's weighting is now only back to its highest level since July. Opposite of Energy, Consumer Discretionary is on pace to lose weight for the first time since March.

A Month to Be Thankful For

Heading into today with just three trading days left in November, the average Russell 1,000 stock was up 17.44% month to date. As shown below, not one of the five largest stocks is up even close to 17% on the month. For a market that had recently been driven higher in large part because of the five mega-cap Tech names, November has seen the mega-caps stall a bit while the rest of the market has seen broad participation. This is the type of breadth that market bulls have been waiting and hoping for.
Of the 35 largest stocks in the Russell 1,000, Tesla (TSLA) is up the most so far this month with a gain of 43%. The other big winners include Chevron (CVX), JP Morgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Disney (DIS), and Comcast (CMCSA). Not one stock in the top 35 is down on the month, but the ones that are up the least are Netflix (NFLX), Procter & Gamble (PG), Amazon (AMZN), and Home Depot (HD).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Looking at sectors, the average Energy stock in the Russell 1,000 is up 46% month-to-date but still down 27% year-to-date. Three other sectors have seen their stocks average MTD gains of more than 20%: Financials, Industrials, and Real Estate. Stocks in the Health Care and Utilities sectors are up the least on an average basis this month, but even these underperformers are still up more than 5%.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
There are 37 stocks in the Russell 1,000 up more than 50% so far in November. Below is a list of this month's biggest winners. Coty (COTY) and Nordstrom (JWN) stand out the most with gains of more than 100%, followed by Spirit AeroSystems (SPR), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Diamondback Energy (FANG), and Empire State Realty (ESRT). The list of biggest winners this month is full of names that got hit hardest by COVID in areas like energy, travel, retail, and real estate. Notably, while these stocks are up an average of 68.5% in November, they're still down an average of 23% on the year. On a median basis, they're down even more year-to-date at -31.55%.

Biden - Best Since Reagan

The market started off November on a positive note, and even after the election has continued to add to its gains. Through the close today (11/24), the S&P 500 is up 7.90% since the close on Election Day. Relative to every other Presidential election since the beginning of the S&P back in 1928, the three-week performance of the S&P 500 following this Election Day ranks as the second-best of all time. It came down right to the wire, but the only other US President to see a stronger market reaction to their election (or re-election) was Ronald Reagan in 1980 (7.97%). Behind Reagan and Biden, the only other Presidents where the S&P 500 experienced an upside move of 5%+ in reaction to their elections were Hoover in 1928 and Clinton in 1996.
On the downside, the most negative reaction of the market in the three weeks after Election Day was the 14.75% decline following President Obama's election in 2008. In addition to Obama, the S&P 500's four other three-week downside moves of more than 5% came after the elections of Truman in 1948, the election of George W Bush in 2000 (although at the time it was unknown who was the winner of that election), the election of Franklin D Roosevelt in 1932, and Dwight D Eisenhower's re-election in 1956.
In aggregate, the S&P 500 hasn't historically responded all that great in the three weeks after a Presidential election. For every one since 1928, the median return of the S&P 500 in the three weeks after Election Day has been a gain of just 0.35%. Breaking out returns by party, in the three weeks after a Democratic candidate is elected, the S&P 500's median performance is a decline of 1.11% compared to a median gain of 3.04% when a Republican is elected.

DJIA 1,000 Point Thresholds

What a wild year 2020 has been! With the DJIA closing above 30,000 today, it was the second first-time upside break of a 1,000 point threshold this year. While there have only been two new upside crosses of 1,000 point thresholds, due to the sharp pullback in March from the pandemic that briefly took the DJIA below 19,000 on a closing basis, there have actually been 12 different upside 1,000 point thresholds at some point in the year.
The table below lists the first time that the DJIA closed above each 1,000 point threshold in its history along with the total number of times the index has crossed that level on a closing basis throughout history. The thousand point level that has seen the most crosses on a closing basis was 11,000 (87 crosses) while 10,000 ranks second at 67.
Obviously, the higher the DJIA goes, the less impactful a move of 1,000 points becomes. At current levels, 1,000 points represents just 3.3%, which is really nothing more than a very bad day in the market. Given the diminishing impact of 1,000 points in the DJIA these days, their significance declines. Even still, the twelve new 1,000-point crosses since the 2016 election has given the President (who has publicly discussed the stock market more than any other President in history) plenty of ammunition to tweet about.

30,000 Reasons To Be Thankful

As 2020 winds down, it has been an extremely tough year on all of us. Still, there are many reasons to be thankful and today we will share some reasons investors should be thankful.
Stocks have had one of the largest reversals ever in 2020, something to be thankful for. In fact, this could be the first year ever to see the S&P 500 down more than 30% peak-to-trough and finish higher.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We should also be thankful that Congress was split in 2020, likely marking the 11th consecutive year the S&P 500 gained under a split Congress. Gridlock is good they tell us and that very well could be true yet again.
Want something else to be thankful for? We likely will have a split Congress for another two years after the two Georgia runoffs are official.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that it is looking like stocks once again will be higher the year a President is up for re-election. In fact, you have to go back to FDR in the ‘40s the last time the S&P 500 was lower for the year when a President was up for re-election.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the fastest bear market in history (only 16 days) is officially a thing of the past.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are thankful that we are in a new bull market, which if history plays out once again, could have a lot of life left to it. In fact, the average bull market has lasted more than five years.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
“Let’s be thankful that the huge move off the March lows was a major clue of more strength,” explained LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “We noted at the time (many different ways) that the enormous move we saw off the March lows likely suggested significantly higher prices, while many ignored the market signals and instead looked for a re-test for months on end.”
The 20-days off the March lows was the second best 20-day rally ever and sure enough, the returns have been very strong.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are finally seeing many stocks participate in this bull market, another reason to be thankful. In fact, the Value Line Arithmetic Index recently made new all-time highs. This index is a great look at what the ‘average’ stock is doing and is a sign that this move isn’t being led by just a few large cap tech stocks.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the NYSE Cumulative Advance/Decline line is at new highs. This looks at how many stocks are going up versus down and new highs are a sign of very healthy participation.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Emerging markets have started to turn higher and we are thankful that this group could be on the verge of a major breakout to new highs, clearing their peak from 2007. As we move into ’21, this is one group we think could continue to do quite well for investors.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Global investors should be thankful, as the MSCI Global Index broke out to new highs as well, suggesting this rally isn’t only about the US anymore.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We upgraded our view on small caps in September and the Russell 2000 Index is currently on pace to have its best monthly return ever. Investors should be thankful that this group is finally participating, as there are many more small caps than large caps, another sign of improving breadth, while small caps are also more domestic by nature and could be suggesting a strong US economy next year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Investors should be thankful for the incredible strength around the election, as the S&P 500 gained more than 1% four consecutive days. This is extremely rare, yet, extremely bullish going out a year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
As we showed in Frothy Sentiment Rides Bullish Technicals, the huge number of stocks in the S&P 500 making new monthly highs should make bulls quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Earnings are expected to see a major bounce back, as the global economy gets back online next year, making many investors quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Economic forecasts may not develop as predicted.
As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the final reason to be thankful? Dow at 30,000!

2020.11.28 16:24 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on StockMarket. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading week ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning November 30th, 2020.

Stocks on track to close out month of big gains as jobs data looms - (Source)

Stocks next week will come off one of their best months ever into a busy week of economic data and the ongoing tensions between the spreading virus and positive news on vaccines and treatments.
Another highlight of the week is expected to be Tuesday’s testimony from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before the Senate Banking Committee. They will be discussing the emergency measures taken to help the economy after the outbreak of the pandemic.
The Dow was up nearly 13% for November so far, and if it holds its gains into Monday’s close, it will chalk up its best month since January, 1987. The S&P 500 closed at a record 3,638 and was up 11.3% for the month. The gain is its best performance since April’s 12.7%, which was the third best month for the S&P 500 since its origin in 1957.
November was a big month also for market rotation, with investors favoring stocks that would benefit from a rebounding economy and showing less love for long-held favorites among big tech and internet names. Financials were up more than 17% in the past month, and industrials rose nearly 15%, as investors bet vaccines would help the economy return to normal next year.
Tech notched a single digit gain for the month so far and lagged the broader market. But some strategists expect big tech and internet names, stay-at-home stocks, to fare better in December.
“The death of big tech has been announced over and over again, and we see that the market doesn’t abandon them, but in fact migrates to big tech whenever there are concerns,” said Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial. “The post-pandemic question is whether big tech can co-exist with the small and mid-cap.” Small caps were one of the biggest winners in November, with the Russell 2000, up 20.6%.
“We did not see major selling in Nasdaq,” as investors put funds in cyclicals and value, she said. Nasdaq was up 11.9% for the month so far, slightly better than the S&P 500.
Experts have warned that there could an even bigger surge in virus cases, following the Thanksgiving holiday which could start to show up in the coming week. There have been more than 12.6 million cases in the U.S.

Jobs report

There are some important economic reports in the week ahead, the most important being Friday’s November employment report. There is is also ISM manufacturing data Tuesday.
“My thought here is the data is going to matter because if you listen to the Fed, and if you read through the Fed’s minutes, they’re in transition here. They’re becoming more concerned about the rise in Covid cases, certainly about the lack of fiscal support,” said Gregory Faranello, head of U.S. rates at AmeriVet Securities.
Strategists say another key report will be weekly jobless claims, which showed an increase in each of the last two weeks. “The employment data clearly has been weakening,” said Faranello. If it continues, it will keep a lid on Treasury yields, which move opposite prices.
Jefferies economist Tom Simons expects the elimination of Census Bureau workers to detract from the job gains in November, and he forecasts the economy added just 340,000 jobs.
“It is hard to envision a particularly strong report coming out on Friday,” noted Simons.
Bank of America economists forecast just 150,000 payrolls were added for November, compared to 638,000 in October. The private sector is expected to add 300,000, but expected government layoffs impacted total payrolls in their forecast.
Faranello said he expects the bond market to be much more active than normal this December because of the pending change in the White House, as well as the runoff election in Georgia Jan. 5 that will decide whether Republicans keep their Senate majority. The market has also been concerned about the lack of stimulus from Washington.
“The theme in the market right now is definitely hope and optimism versus the on the ground dynamic with Covid,” said Faranello. “The real question is can the vaccine rally hold up if we see the virus rise and we continue to see shutdowns. How does the market perform in light of that?”
Krosby said she expects the market to watch for vaccine news. “The question I think is now whether or not we see the emergency authorization given to Pfizer and followed by Moderna,” she said. “I think that is a catalyst to the market because that is when you will start to see the vaccine distributed.” The Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisory committee has a meeting set for Dec. 10 to discuss emergency authorization for the Pfizer
Analysts expect investors to continue to gravitate to value and cyclicals, since they could have the biggest gains compared to already high priced big tech. But tech is still attractive.
“We still see the Nasdaq leading,” said Krosby. “Whereas we enjoyed the vaccine related boom in the market, the fact is that investors and and traders are looking for big tech names to give them that growth in earnings and revenues.”

December Almanac: Small Caps Have Shined

December is now the number three S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials month since 1950, averaging gains of 1.5% on each index. It’s the top Russell 2000 (1979) month and third best for NASDAQ (1971) and Russell 1000 (1979). In 2018, DJIA suffered its worst December performance since 1931 and its fourth worst December going all the way back to 1901. However, the market rarely falls precipitously in December and a repeat of 2018 is not highly likely. When December is down it is usually a turning point in the market—near a top or bottom. If the market has experienced fantastic gains leading up to December, stocks can pullback in the first half of the month.
In the last seventeen election years, December’s ranking changed modestly to #2 DJIA, #5 NASDAQ, but S&P 500 remains #3. Small caps, measured by the Russell 2000, have had a field day in election-year Decembers. Since 1980, the Russell 2000 has lost ground just once in ten election years in December. The average small cap gain in all ten years is a solid 3.0%. The Russell 2000’s single loss was in 1980 when the Prime Rate was 21.5%.

Sector Weights Rising and Falling

For most of the past year, one significant trend on a sector by sector basis has been the outperformance of sectors like Technology and Consumer Discretionary. The relative strength lines of these sectors have consistently shown outperformance versus the rest of the S&P 500 as a whole, but since August, other sectors have begun to take the wheel. As we noted in today's Sector Snapshot, just about every sector has had a banner month in November with some of the biggest month to date rallies of the past 30 years, but some sectors have seen much larger returns than others. One of the best examples of this has been Energy which has risen over 35% in November. Similarly, Financials has risen an astounding 19.5% this month compared to more modest but still significant rallies of around 10% from Tech and Consumer Discretionary. Given those large degrees of outperformance, the relative strength lines of Energy and Financials have taken a sharp turn higher in recent weeks. Similarly, they have seen a turnaround in their weightings in the S&P 500 as shown in the charts below.
Over the past three months, the Financial sector has gained a full percentage point weighting while the Technology sector has lost 1.36 percentage points with a decline in weighting in three straight months. For Financials, that is the largest gain in weighting in a three month span since January 2017. For Tech, outside of the reshuffling in 2018 that saw a large share of its weight change into Communication Services, the last time the sector lost this much or more in weighting in three months was November of 2008. Prior to this recent string of losing weight over the past three months, Tech had seen weight gain in every month from October of last year through August. Even though the weight loss has been significant, it has only put a dent in the increased share of the entirety of the past year as the sector's weight is only back down to where it was in May.
Similarly, looking at the other sectors, while Financials have added a full percentage point in share over the past few months, that follows nine months of declines running from last December through August. That brings the sector's weighting back above 10% in the S&P 500, but that is only at the highest level since March. Similarly, Materials and Industrials have also seen their weights rise for three and four months in a row, respectively. As for Energy, the 0.44 percentage point gain in November is set to snap six straight months of declines; the longest such streak since at least 1990. As with Financials, that turn around this month has only put a dent in the longer term trend of weight loss as Energy's weighting is now only back to its highest level since July. Opposite of Energy, Consumer Discretionary is on pace to lose weight for the first time since March.

A Month to Be Thankful For

Heading into today with just three trading days left in November, the average Russell 1,000 stock was up 17.44% month to date. As shown below, not one of the five largest stocks is up even close to 17% on the month. For a market that had recently been driven higher in large part because of the five mega-cap Tech names, November has seen the mega-caps stall a bit while the rest of the market has seen broad participation. This is the type of breadth that market bulls have been waiting and hoping for.
Of the 35 largest stocks in the Russell 1,000, Tesla (TSLA) is up the most so far this month with a gain of 43%. The other big winners include Chevron (CVX), JP Morgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Disney (DIS), and Comcast (CMCSA). Not one stock in the top 35 is down on the month, but the ones that are up the least are Netflix (NFLX), Procter & Gamble (PG), Amazon (AMZN), and Home Depot (HD).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Looking at sectors, the average Energy stock in the Russell 1,000 is up 46% month-to-date but still down 27% year-to-date. Three other sectors have seen their stocks average MTD gains of more than 20%: Financials, Industrials, and Real Estate. Stocks in the Health Care and Utilities sectors are up the least on an average basis this month, but even these underperformers are still up more than 5%.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
There are 37 stocks in the Russell 1,000 up more than 50% so far in November. Below is a list of this month's biggest winners. Coty (COTY) and Nordstrom (JWN) stand out the most with gains of more than 100%, followed by Spirit AeroSystems (SPR), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Diamondback Energy (FANG), and Empire State Realty (ESRT). The list of biggest winners this month is full of names that got hit hardest by COVID in areas like energy, travel, retail, and real estate. Notably, while these stocks are up an average of 68.5% in November, they're still down an average of 23% on the year. On a median basis, they're down even more year-to-date at -31.55%.

Biden - Best Since Reagan

The market started off November on a positive note, and even after the election has continued to add to its gains. Through the close today (11/24), the S&P 500 is up 7.90% since the close on Election Day. Relative to every other Presidential election since the beginning of the S&P back in 1928, the three-week performance of the S&P 500 following this Election Day ranks as the second-best of all time. It came down right to the wire, but the only other US President to see a stronger market reaction to their election (or re-election) was Ronald Reagan in 1980 (7.97%). Behind Reagan and Biden, the only other Presidents where the S&P 500 experienced an upside move of 5%+ in reaction to their elections were Hoover in 1928 and Clinton in 1996.
On the downside, the most negative reaction of the market in the three weeks after Election Day was the 14.75% decline following President Obama's election in 2008. In addition to Obama, the S&P 500's four other three-week downside moves of more than 5% came after the elections of Truman in 1948, the election of George W Bush in 2000 (although at the time it was unknown who was the winner of that election), the election of Franklin D Roosevelt in 1932, and Dwight D Eisenhower's re-election in 1956.
In aggregate, the S&P 500 hasn't historically responded all that great in the three weeks after a Presidential election. For every one since 1928, the median return of the S&P 500 in the three weeks after Election Day has been a gain of just 0.35%. Breaking out returns by party, in the three weeks after a Democratic candidate is elected, the S&P 500's median performance is a decline of 1.11% compared to a median gain of 3.04% when a Republican is elected.

DJIA 1,000 Point Thresholds

What a wild year 2020 has been! With the DJIA closing above 30,000 today, it was the second first-time upside break of a 1,000 point threshold this year. While there have only been two new upside crosses of 1,000 point thresholds, due to the sharp pullback in March from the pandemic that briefly took the DJIA below 19,000 on a closing basis, there have actually been 12 different upside 1,000 point thresholds at some point in the year.
The table below lists the first time that the DJIA closed above each 1,000 point threshold in its history along with the total number of times the index has crossed that level on a closing basis throughout history. The thousand point level that has seen the most crosses on a closing basis was 11,000 (87 crosses) while 10,000 ranks second at 67.
Obviously, the higher the DJIA goes, the less impactful a move of 1,000 points becomes. At current levels, 1,000 points represents just 3.3%, which is really nothing more than a very bad day in the market. Given the diminishing impact of 1,000 points in the DJIA these days, their significance declines. Even still, the twelve new 1,000-point crosses since the 2016 election has given the President (who has publicly discussed the stock market more than any other President in history) plenty of ammunition to tweet about.

30,000 Reasons To Be Thankful

As 2020 winds down, it has been an extremely tough year on all of us. Still, there are many reasons to be thankful and today we will share some reasons investors should be thankful.
Stocks have had one of the largest reversals ever in 2020, something to be thankful for. In fact, this could be the first year ever to see the S&P 500 down more than 30% peak-to-trough and finish higher.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We should also be thankful that Congress was split in 2020, likely marking the 11th consecutive year the S&P 500 gained under a split Congress. Gridlock is good they tell us and that very well could be true yet again.
Want something else to be thankful for? We likely will have a split Congress for another two years after the two Georgia runoffs are official.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that it is looking like stocks once again will be higher the year a President is up for re-election. In fact, you have to go back to FDR in the ‘40s the last time the S&P 500 was lower for the year when a President was up for re-election.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the fastest bear market in history (only 16 days) is officially a thing of the past.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are thankful that we are in a new bull market, which if history plays out once again, could have a lot of life left to it. In fact, the average bull market has lasted more than five years.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
“Let’s be thankful that the huge move off the March lows was a major clue of more strength,” explained LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “We noted at the time (many different ways) that the enormous move we saw off the March lows likely suggested significantly higher prices, while many ignored the market signals and instead looked for a re-test for months on end.”
The 20-days off the March lows was the second best 20-day rally ever and sure enough, the returns have been very strong.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We are finally seeing many stocks participate in this bull market, another reason to be thankful. In fact, the Value Line Arithmetic Index recently made new all-time highs. This index is a great look at what the ‘average’ stock is doing and is a sign that this move isn’t being led by just a few large cap tech stocks.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Let’s be thankful that the NYSE Cumulative Advance/Decline line is at new highs. This looks at how many stocks are going up versus down and new highs are a sign of very healthy participation.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Emerging markets have started to turn higher and we are thankful that this group could be on the verge of a major breakout to new highs, clearing their peak from 2007. As we move into ’21, this is one group we think could continue to do quite well for investors.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Global investors should be thankful, as the MSCI Global Index broke out to new highs as well, suggesting this rally isn’t only about the US anymore.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We upgraded our view on small caps in September and the Russell 2000 Index is currently on pace to have its best monthly return ever. Investors should be thankful that this group is finally participating, as there are many more small caps than large caps, another sign of improving breadth, while small caps are also more domestic by nature and could be suggesting a strong US economy next year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Investors should be thankful for the incredible strength around the election, as the S&P 500 gained more than 1% four consecutive days. This is extremely rare, yet, extremely bullish going out a year.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
As we showed in Frothy Sentiment Rides Bullish Technicals, the huge number of stocks in the S&P 500 making new monthly highs should make bulls quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Earnings are expected to see a major bounce back, as the global economy gets back online next year, making many investors quite thankful.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Economic forecasts may not develop as predicted.
As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the final reason to be thankful? Dow at 30,000!

Leptitox Reviews Reddit (2020)

Leptitox Nutrition

According to the Leptitox website, Leptitox was once spearheaded by a firefighter by the name of Morgan Hurst, and is the end result of Malaysian tradition and an independent medical researcher by means of the name of Sonya Rhodes. This supplement, packaged in a 60-capsule bottle is their solution to weight loss.
>>>Click Here to Know More About Leptitox
A quick end to the Leptitox sales page will show Hurst’s testimony on how his devotion to saving his wife’s lifestyles gave him the drive to scour through research to discover the one thing that would work. The story (which is most likely a transcript to an advertisement) covers how an unexpected outing to Malaysia would serve as the moment of epiphany for Hurst. Bringing his newfound knowledge, he would then link up with Sonya Rhodes, an independent researcher with simply under three decades of experience to no longer only validate his findings but enhance them with different natural ingredients that are said to double their effect.
“Morgan Hurst” and “Sonya Rhodes” are most in all likelihood pen names that were used for the advertisement, and not real people. In fact, there’s a suitable chance that most (if not all) of the story is fictional, and was written specially to sell the product. That being said, Leptitox is a real product and a lot of people have bought it.

Leptitox Reviews Reddit: What are Leptitox Weight Loss Pills?

Leptitox is a supplement that is supposed to help detoxify the body of endocrine-disrupting chemical compounds to correct leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone produced by excess fats that directs the body in terms of alerting when the body has had sufficient to eat and what to do with the energy in store.
In a properly functioning organism, the second food intake reaches a certain threshold, the leptin hormone is released, signaling to end eating. Since most people looking for weight loss supplements have greater fat stores, the process becomes extra complex. Although higher fat stores would suggest a higher release of leptin, the saturation of the hormone in the bloodstream leads to an insensitivity known as leptin resistance.
When a man or woman becomes leptin resistant, it becomes more tough for the body to recognize the “stop” command proposed by the hormone and overeat. Overeating then in addition increases fat stores and decreases leptin response.

How Does Leptitox Work?

https://preview.redd.it/d7ugpqc3dz161.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2f27513bcb219b929b95448aa9c522593e0150ac
According to Morgan Hurst, the offender behind stubborn fat, ignored by using the existing weight loss industry, is leptin resistance caused by an abundance of endocrine-disrupting toxins in the body.
Leptitox is intended to assist the body in cleansing itself from these toxins which with the populace are so often in contact. Hurst mentions several studies that appear to indicate a correlation with these chemicals and leptin resistance, but I have now not verified this.
According to the website, some of the sources of these endocrine-disrupting chemicals are:
  • BPA: found in meals storage plastics and water bottles
  • TBT: found in paint, pesticides and certain material preservatives
  • PFOA: a man-made warmth resistant chemical used in non-stick cookware
  • DEHP: another man-made chemical used primarily is plastic production to aid with elasticity
  • ZEA: a mycotoxin that can be used to expedite growth in cattle.
The claim is that through the recipe shared via a Malaysian native, in addition to eleven hand-picked ingredients by Sonya Rhodes, Leptitox can help mitigate the outcomes of such chemicals.

Leptitox Ingredients

Although Leptitox is a proprietary blend, meaning that the full list of ingredients is unknown, the internet site does offer a substantial amount of records about what goes into a Leptitox capsule.
Here is a list of ingredients mentioned on the website, and some of their supposed benefits:
  • Milk Thistle – Supports weight loss, promotes liver health, reduces insulin resistance
  • Apium Graveolens Seed – Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer properties
  • Jujube – Helps with insomnia, regulates blood circulation, regulates blood pressure
  • Grapeseed – Helps with kidney function, antioxidant, protects the liver
  • Alfalfa – Antioxidant, anti-diabetic, lowers cholesterol
  • Chanca Piedra – Helps with constipation, helps kidney health, protects the liver
  • Taraxacum leaves – Helps with weight loss, fights inflammation, antioxidant
  • Brassicas – Antioxidant, promotes digestive health, helps the immune system
  • Barberry – Antioxidant, lowers blood sugar, protects against metabolic syndrome

Does Leptitox really work for weight loss?

https://preview.redd.it/ayylccd7dz161.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=426cf5d14cf60efd378578a04bf80a2d89261869
The Leptitox sales page makes a lot of claims regarding Leptitox, and many of the claims are challenging to believe. And if you search Google for “Leptitox reviews”, most of the “reviews” you’ll find are associated with affiliates of Leptitox who earn a fee if you purchase Leptitox using one of their links. I also earn a fee if you purchase Leptitox through one of my links, but I refuse to write a pretend review, even if that means I earn fewer commissions.
As of this writing, the Amazon reviews of Leptitox are not very good. However, it appears like at least some of the Leptitox bottles being sold on Amazon may be counterfeits. If you decide to buy Leptitox, I recommend purchasing through the professional website. That way you know you’re getting the real deal, and you will qualify for their money lower back guarantee.
When this article was published, Leptitox has a Trustpilot rating of 3.4 out of 5. It appears that some of the critiques (both positive and negative) may not be from true customers. There are multiple positive reviews, trying to earn money with the aid of promoting Leptitox. Also, one of the reviews appears to be an assessment written for a different product entirely.
But let’s forget about Leptitox for a moment, and talk about the effectiveness of weight loss tablets in general. According to a review of 11 studies, Alli (orlistat), one of the most popular weight loss drugs, used to be found to increase weight loss by a common of 2.9%. Think about that. That’s less than a 3% boost in weight loss! And don’t forget, any drug (even natural supplements), are now not without side effects. And of course, there are many supplements/ingredients out there that have never been scientifically validated to improve weight loss at all, yet people nevertheless buy them.
I personally have never tried Leptitox, however even if I had tried it and I lost weight, it would be hard to prove that it was once because of Leptitox.
Money-Back Guarantee
If you purchase Leptitox from the official website, you’ll be eligible for their 60-day cash back guarantee. To get a refund, you need to return all of your bottles (including empty, full or partially full bottles) to the achievement center within 60 days of the date you originally ordered the product (not the date you certainly received the product!), along with a written or printed note interior the package containing some information, which you can find on the Leptitox “Shipping & Returns” page. You can find a hyperlink to the Shipping & Returns page in the footer of the Leptitox homepage.

Leptitox Where To Buy

Can You Buy Leptitox at Amazon, eBay, CVS, GNC, Target, Walgreens, Costco, Walmart, etc.?
The company behind Leptitox solely sells their products through their official website. If you determine to purchase from 3rd party marketers on websites like Amazon and eBay, just be aware there’s a hazard you may end up getting a fake knock-off, as a substitute than the genuine Leptitox product.

If You Decide to Buy Leptitox: Purchase Through the Official Website

If you decide to try Leptitox, make positive you purchase through the official internet site to ensure you are getting the genuine Leptitox product. Ordering from the official internet site also means you will qualify for the money returned guarantee.

2020.11.28 10:00 ThrowRAcookiws I lost my only chance of getting away

My (14f) mom is so controlling and over protective and overall crazy. She is also an addict (hardcore drugs). And when I said she was crazy I meant she had (undiagnosed) problems she’s very paranoid and she doesn’t think rationally a lot of the time she has severe trust issues and think people are after her for her dads money. She’s a mess. My dad is dead.
Recently I was on video call with my art teacher about a project we had to explain/represent individually and because I was way past due date i gave her an excuse that my mom was sick and I was nursing her which is a lie (my mom was paranoid again and took my devices away, unplugged the internet, the landline in the kitchen, tv, and messed with the AC and heating system) she thinks someone is spying on us. She does this every now and then I’m used to it. During the call with my teacher she busted into my room and starting call me names idk if I’m allowed to say them on this forum but moral of the story it was really bad because my teacher heard every single word she said and she also didn’t hit me but threatened to kill me if I didn’t stop being the (bad words) she was calling me. All of this happened because she during her paranoia hid her drugs somewhere and forgot where she hid them and blamed me for it saying I purposely took them from her.
My teacher called CPS which I begged her not to do. Two ladies came and asked me a few questioned and I lied about it because my grandma won’t take me (I asked her to multiple times and I asked her to admit my mom but she didn’t) and I’m not about to lose my friends and my life and go live a poor and depressing life somewhere in “the system”. I already live a very depressing life so...the only difference would be that I would not have the money and accessibility I do now. I know it’s bad what I’m about to say but due to my mom not being in her right mind most of the time things could go my way if I plan it right. I also I’m not a cold hearted human (although everyone thinks I am in fact when I show empathy or any emotion to anything people and weirded out) but I know my mom and as horrible as she is she is very vulnerable and I witnessed her being played and taken advantage of by almost everyone that’s been in her life. From my grandma who doesn’t want to get her daughter help so she gets to live off her money to her friends who don’t bother talk shit about her to my face or start up doing horrible horrifying things to her that I regularly have nightmares about.
My teacher was very disappointed in me and she (knowing I desperately wanted it) didn’t put my name on the list to the art school I always dreamed of that also offered housing (it’s more of a boarding school) for as young as 16year old students meaning I could leave somewhere nice but not cut my mom off. But now my teacher (who knows people inside the school and she knows that I deserve it) didn’t recommend me.
Why does god hate me? But jk that’s not the question, how do I make it up to my teacher so she would help me get in the school I want without screwing up w my mom?

2020.11.28 07:21 superdork93 Windows 10 Throttling Internet Connection Speed?

I have experienced what appears to be Windows 10 throttling my internet connection speed. It has happened on multiple occasions, and it happened again tonight so I wanted to check with this community to see if there is a possible permanent fix to prevent this from happening again.
Firstly the background information:
I have a 300mb download connection speed from my ISP. I average somewhere between 270mb and 340mb down depending on time of day and network traffic. My upload is pretty consistently around 20mb, give or take a 1mb.
I am using WiFi (802.11ac) on my device which is about 12ft from the wireless router (also 802.11ac) and in clear line of sight.
The issue as I have observed is that my internet connection speed tanks to average about 100mb down. The upload speed appears to be unaffected. I found that to correct the issue, I need to do one of the following:
1) Log in with my Microsoft account in Windows 10. For some reason, my account would log itself out periodically and Windows would prompt a notification to tell me I need to sign in again. This was happening like once a week for a while, but every time I had been signed out, the connection speed would tank.
2) Run Windows Update. I found that even if there is a simple update to Windows available, even optional updates, this can cause Windows to throttle my internet speed. Running the update will correct the issue.
This particular evening was unique and it had me a bit stressed out. I was meeting with friends online to play a game together, but we had not decided on which game yet. Once we met on Discord, we decided on the game and I went to download and install it. The file size was just under a gig, about 940mb or so. Normally, my connection speed would make short work of a file that size. It normally would have been done in a couple minutes at most. Tonight, it took 45 minutes...
I went to check my connection speed and once again, I was only getting ~100mb down. I tried rebooting my modem and router with no improvement. I tried rebooting my computer and still no improvement. Then I checked other devices on my network and confirmed the issue was only with my computer. I then went to check if my Microsoft accound had somehow been signed out, but I was still signed in. So I went to Windows Update and it said that my system was up to date, however, on the same page, it said something along the lines of 'Try the new 20H2 update'. This wasn't a required update, and it seemed more like an advertisement. So I opted to update to this new version, and after rebooting, suddenly my download speeds were back to normal.
Has anyone else experienced this before? Is there a way to stop this behavior with Windows10?
It seems to me, based on my experiences, that Microsoft is throttling my internet connection speed and it is very concerning.

2020.11.28 05:05 bkymph I'm not angry over losing an election...

I'm not angry over losing an election, I'm angry over direct, stated threats to go after my job, my family, and my friends by politicians such as AOC calling for "accountability" and "retribution" against all Trump voters and supporters, and at blatant fraud. I can accept a legitimate election loss, I cannot accept a blatant destruction of my ability to vote. I beg of you to listen, put an honest discussion, or else you leave few paths left. I know you have spoken of voter disenfranchisement in the past, and the fact you only do so when it applies your way is stunning. The following is a brief summary of a small portion of the evidence submitted thus far.
Sworn testimony by several poll watchers in Georgia of Trump votes being placed into Biden piles, he specifies which table and where he was at, and when he brought it up to the superintendent he was rejected with extreme hostility and pushed out
Sworn testimony of another watcher saying that they watched two workers do the same, then take votes from the No Vote and Jorgenson tray and placing them into the Biden tray, then took all ballots from the Biden tray and began writing them on the count sheet
Sworn testimony at least three ballots for Biden had watermarks that were solid instead of transparent and that batches came in 100% Biden and claiming that the ballot was counterfeit to the superintendent was told that it was a legitimate ballot
Similar testimony was made of Pennsylvania
In Pennsylvania alone there are over 700,000 ballots more submitted than could have been returned as it is more than were assigned or sent out
Poll watchers were kept away at more than 30 feet in some places, or even kicked out of the building entirely
Boards were placed atop the windows of a polling station to prevent views
There are no "glitches" that have advantaged Trump thus far found in the entire total, not a single case has been provided, not a case of one going to Trump when it should have gone to Biden
We have a digital record of votes being deleted from the Trump count and the same number added to the Biden count on voting machines
We have a physical record of thousands of ballots being "returned" before they were sent to the location, the official place in which this was recorded has since deleted the dates returned when Republicans used it as evidence of fraud.
We have a polling place which stated there was a flood by a broken pipe and no ballots were being counted there, turning away the watchers, this was later proven false and merely used to keep people from transparency
Thousands of sworn testimonies saying their rights were violated that they were prevented from voting with the claim that they had already voted by absentee when they never did
Confirmed cases of dead individuals voting
Voting machines were connected to the internet
Spikes of more than 300% voting participation from the previous election.
Voter participation up to 98% in Wisconsin with some districts reporting over 100% is a blatant indicator of voter fraud, as even in countries where it is illegal to not vote the highest percentage is 95%, the highest rates in Wisconsin in history previously were about 75% with the average around 60% including the last election
About 1/3rd of votes in a single Michigan county were swapped from Trump to Biden by the voting machine, that's not 1/3rd of Trump votes that's 1/3rd of total votes
Sworn testimony of, at 4 am, after election day, three vehicles driving up to a station and dumping over 600,000 ballots at once, with not a single vote that wasn't for Biden, similar spikes were found across Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona within two hours of each other.
Several polling places hid sections of their vote counting from the public in sealed rooms separate from the rest of the count
Sworn testimony of poll watchers that signatures were not verified
Signature verification laws were illegally ignored and changed by Democrat counties when the state legislature has not voted on them
Sworn testimony from a man who has been an election official for 20 years in Georgia that the markings used for ballots were likely filled in by machine as they were consistent from one ballot to another, that these ballots had no markings of where the ballots had come from or been processed, that the ballots had a very specific slight pre-fold, entirely pristine with no clear handling by people, used different paper, and all but two, not two percent, two of these ballots went to Biden of the ones he observed with an estimation of over 98% going to Biden.
Sworn testimony that there was a breach of custody in voting machines before the election where the voting machines were unsealed before being accepted and the serial numbers did not match the documentation of the machines intended to be used
These machines are well known to be vulnerable to hackers and were left unattended and unguarded for months prior to the election, a professor has photos of himself opening up the machines and standing near them prior to the election to prove this
Several hand recounts were instead counted by machine in Georgia
Benford's law of distribution states Biden's distribution of votes as statistically impossible and fraudulent, while Trump's matches the curve almost exactly
Millions of ballots for Biden, 34%, have only the president selected whereas Trump has around 1.2% such votes, which is a clear indicator of fraud as indicated by prior studies of African elections
Using the same study, extended periods of voting are also indicators of fraud
Using the same study, irregular spikes of voter turnout where the select party controls the area are also indicators of fraud
A director at Dominion stated that he will make sure Trump does not win, that anyone who voted for Trump is utterly irredeemably evil and stupid "Don't worry, he won't win, we fixed that."
This same man, Eric Coomer, has stated that he can control the votes by administration and decide which batches are counted, which are not, add and delete counts, decide which are permitted, as a central operator.
The company itself has stated that the system is "very vulnerable to malicious administrators"
"It is possible for any administrator of the "ImageCast Central" workstation to view and delete any individual ballot scans from the "NotCastImages" folder by simply using the standard Windows delete and recycle bin functions..."
This folder is one where the machine is not 100% certain of the ballots.
There is no paper backup to verify results so recounts are essentially meaningless as there is no record of these changes.
Many areas have transferred their vote batches on a USB drive rather than any physical information or record.
Dominion system is known to be entirely insecure and manipulable within the software
One of the people on Biden's transition team is the CEO of the company, Smartmatic, that developed the software used to rig the elections in Venezuela
The sworn testimony of a man who was part of the national security guard of the President of Venezuela stated that he was witness to the fact that Domestic and Smartmatic were established and founded for the explicit purpose of ensuring elections, namely that Hugo Chavez remained dictator of Venezuela and he saw it work, and to be unable to be addressed by audit or recount, and several more workers from Venezuela have testified the same
The dangers of these have been known since at least 2006 in the United States
There is also the testimony of a United States Air Force Lt. General that he believes a program from the CIA was used on the United States election, and further testimony from a CIA whistleblower of the same nature, and both claim that the software was made to be used on the United States by the Obama administration. I do not know the legitimacy of these claims, but if Snowden is anything to go by, if the "CIA isn't spying on American citizens" is anything to go by, then I lean towards it being legitimate.

2020.11.28 00:53 Denske203 Trying to Explain What it's like to be an Addict to a Non-Addict

The current profile for the young male addict is quite different from the old conception of an addict. I feel like to properly convey my experience you must understand what has fueled the opiate epidemic. I think it's part due to a certain quality in young males, something like a general lack of a desire to engage in life like is normal in society. It's thought that this is the result of technology like the internet and social media. Basically, parents allow their young children unfettered access to video games and tv. Between this and a few other unhealthy parenting habits, the child misses out on crucial interaction with peers. This results in a lack of social development which later in life will result in the feeling like they are unable to connect to anything outside themselves. If you mix this with a lack of direction or passion for anything other then video games and add in a dash of trauma you have the correct environmental activator for the addiction gene.
Now as to the way it feels, I don't speak for everyone, but this is my experience. During my childhood I saw my parents failed careers and marriage while thinking to myself, if this is the result of trying in life why does anyone try at all. This train of thought was deeply embedded into my psyche and I find myself unmotivated by anything but immediate gratification. This started out with addiction to video games/tv, this led to trying marijuana, this led to trying other things, and after graduating it led to pills, and finally heroin. Once I tried it, I fell in love, I finally understood what it felt like to be whole and completely at peace. This turned into an 8 year love affair and there is not much else to this side of things. You feel like there is only one thing in the world that matters and what you will do to obtain your drug becomes more intense everyday. During this time a lot of bad things happened jail, living on the streets, got stabbed, etc. In most cases, people can't get sober until they have experienced enough pain to fuel the change they want to accomplish. Especially during the latter half of my use, I felt trapped, scared that I would never be able to choose to quit.
I went to rehab 8 times and detox over 20 times, each ended in a relapse. Despite wanting to stay sober, I failed time and time again and around 6 months sober I always found myself with constant anxiety which always led to relapse. At age 26 I found out I was going to be a father. I thought that having a child was exactly what I needed, I thought that this was what was going to fix me. I got out of a rehab the day my child was born. I was happier than ever seeing him be delivered, yet within 3 weeks I had relapsed. This relapse was short but what I experienced can only be compared to as the most hopeless and helpless person on the face of the planet. I thought there was nothing anyone could do to fix me, I was going to die an addict. This experience is what led to my current sobriety date of 10/23/2014 and I have been sober since.
Now let's get into what it feels like being in recovery. I cannot begin to portray to you the amount of change necessary for addicts to attain long-term sobriety. They say that the day the addict starts using, they stop developing. This for the most part is true. I started using marijuana regularly at 15 and that is what age I felt like in the beginning of sobriety. So I am a 15 year old newly sober heroin addict, who just became a father. I had no clue how to take care of myself physically, emotionally, spiritually...I had no work experience, skills, family hated me, little education...and I had to address legal issues, outstanding debt, terrible credit, find a place to live, find a way to feed myself, etc. Then comes trying to address our mental state. I did this with the 12 steps and a sponsor. But once I was done with them there was still a lot of change needed. The main thing was learning to be happy, which took quite a while.
If you remember I told you about always getting to 6 months sober and developing extreme anxiety. This phenomenon is actually what makes addiction so hard to overcome. Our brains when exposed to drugs for a long period of time become hardwired in a bad way. What I mean is drugs are just a way to trick our brain into feeling happy by triggering a release of endorphins. Our central nervous system has no way to tell the difference from the endorphins released by drugs and the endorphins released from normal sources of happiness. So after we get sober your brain no longer gets those endorphins and after a few months of sobriety your brain is screaming "where are our regular shots of endorphins!?". The central nervous system then sends an anxiety this in the means to make the person act and a craving for whatever the person's drug of choice, in my experience these do not go away. This is why white knuckling very very rarely works.
To my knowledge, this is the only way to circumvent these urges, by learning to live fulfilled and happy. This in an effort to achieve those regular release of endorphins through actions and thoughts alone. Finding happiness and fulfillment is already hard enough on its own but if you combine this with everything else required to stay sober, you'll understand why recovery rates are so abysmal. While rare it is possible, thanks to guidance from sponsors and mental health professionals. I do have to do continual maintenance on myself though to make sure I don't slip into my old ways of life. In summation, it is one of the worst mental illnesses you can be born with. I would not wish it on my greatest enemy.

2020.11.27 21:34 CuteBananaMuffin The Absurdities of Water Fluoridation

by Paul Connett, PhD
November 28, 2002 from FluorIdealAlert Website

Water fluoridation is a peculiarly American phenomenon. It started at a time when Asbestos lined our pipes, lead was added to gasoline, PCBs filled our transformers and DDT was deemed so "safe and effective" that officials felt no qualms spraying kids in school classrooms and seated at picnic tables. One by one all these chemicals have been banned, but fluoridation remains untouched.
For over 50 years US government officials have confidently and enthusiastically claimed that fluoridation is "safe and effective". However, they are seldom prepared to defend the practice in open public debate. Actually, there are so many arguments against fluoridation that it can get overwhelming.
To simplify things it helps to separate the ethical from the scientific arguments.
For those for whom ethical concerns are paramount, the issue of fluoridation is very simple to resolve. It is simply not ethical; we simply shouldn't be forcing medication on people without their "informed consent". The bad news is that ethical arguments are not very influential in Washington, DC unless politicians are very conscious of millions of people watching them. The good news is that the ethical arguments are buttressed by solid common sense arguments and scientific studies which convincingly show that fluoridation is neither "safe and effective" nor necessary.
I have summarized the arguments in several categories:
- Fluoridation is UNETHICAL because:
As stated by the recent recipient of the Nobel Prize for Medicine (2000), Dr. Arvid Carlsson:
"I am quite convinced that water fluoridation, in a not-too-distant future, will be consigned to medical history... Water fluoridation goes against leading principles of pharmacotherapy, which is progressing from a stereotyped medication - of the type 1 tablet 3 times a day - to a much more individualized therapy as regards both dosage and selection of drugs. The addition of drugs to the drinking water means exactly the opposite of an individualized therapy."
As stated by Dr. Peter Mansfield, a physician from the UK and advisory board member of the recent government review of fluoridation (McDonagh et al 2000):
"No physician in his right senses would prescribe for a person he has never met, whose medical history he does not know, a substance which is intended to create bodily change, with the advice: 'Take as much as you like, but you will take it for the rest of your life because some children suffer from tooth decay.' It is a preposterous notion."

- Fluoridation is UNNECESSARY because:
  1. Children can have perfectly good teeth without being exposed to fluoride.
  2. The promoters (CDC, 1999, 2001) admit that the benefits are topical not systemic, so fluoridated toothpaste, which is universally available, is a more rational approach to delivering fluoride to the target organ (teeth) while minimizing exposure to the rest of the body.
  3. The vast majority of western Europe has rejected water fluoridation, but has been equally successful as the US, if not more so, in tackling tooth decay.
  4. If fluoride was necessary for strong teeth one would expect to find it in breast milk, but the level there is 0.01 ppm , which is 100 times LESS than in fluoridated tap water (IOM, 1997).
  5. Children in non-fluoridated communities are already getting the so-called "optimal" doses from other sources (Heller et al, 1997). In fact, many are already being over-exposed to fluoride.

- Fluoridation is UNSAFE because:
  1. It accumulates in our bones and makes them more brittle and prone to fracture. The weight of evidence from animal studies, clinical studies and epidemiological studies on this is overwhelming. Lifetime exposure to fluoride will contribute to higher rates of hip fracture in the elderly.
  2. It accumulates in our pineal gland, possibly lowering the production of melatonin a very important regulatory hormone (Luke, 1997, 2001).
  3. It damages the enamel (dental fluorosis) of a high percentage of children. Between 30 and 50% of children have dental fluorosis on at least two teeth in optimally fluoridated communities (Heller et al, 1997 and McDonagh et al, 2000).
  4. There are serious, but yet unproven, concerns about a connection between fluoridation and osteosarcoma in young men (Cohn, 1992), as well as fluoridation and the current epidemics of both arthritis and hypothyroidism.
  5. In animal studies fluoride at 1 ppm in drinking water increases the uptake of aluminum into the brain (Varner et al, 1998).
  6. Counties with 3 ppm or more of fluoride in their water have lower fertility rates (Freni, 1994).
  7. In human studies the fluoridating agents most commonly used in the US not only increase the uptake of lead into children's blood (Masters and Coplan, 1999, 2000) but are also associated with an increase in violent behavior.
  8. The margin of safety between the so-called therapeutic benefit of reducing dental decay and many of these end points is either nonexistent or precariously low.
Fluoridation is INEQUITABLE, because:
  1. It will go to all households, and the poor cannot afford to avoid it, if they want to, because they will not be able to purchase bottled water or expensive removal equipment.
  2. The poor are more likely to suffer poor nutrition which is known to make children more vulnerable to fluoride's toxic effects (Massler & Schour 1952; Marier & Rose 1977; ATSDR 1993; Teotia et al, 1998).
  3. Very rarely, if ever, do governments offer to pay the costs of those who are unfortunate enough to get dental fluorosis severe enough to require expensive treatment.

Fluoridation is INEFFICIENT and NOT COST-EFFECTIVE because:
  1. Only a small fraction of the water fluoridated actually reaches the target. Most of it ends up being used to wash the dishes, to flush the toilet or to water our lawns and gardens.
  2. It would be totally cost-prohibitive to use pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride (the substance which has been tested) as a fluoridating agent for the public water supply. Water fluoridation is artificially cheap because, unknown to most people, the fluoridating agent is an unpurified hazardous waste product from the phosphate fertilizer industry.
  3. If it was deemed appropriate to swallow fluoride (even though its major benefits are topical not systemic) a safer and more cost-effective approach would be to provide fluoridated bottle water in supermarkets free of charge. This approach would allow both the quality and the dose to be controlled. Moreover, it would not force it on people who don't want it.

- Fluoridation is UNSCIENTIFICALLY PROMOTED. For example:
  1. In 1950, the US Public Health Service enthusiastically endorsed fluoridation before one single trial had been completed.
  2. Even though we are getting many more sources of fluoride today than we were in 1945, the so called "optimal concentration" of 1 ppm has remained unchanged.
  3. The US Public health Service has never felt obliged to monitor the fluoride levels in our bones even though they have known for years that 50% of the fluoride we swallow each day accumulates there.
  4. Officials that promote fluoridation never check to see what the levels of dental fluorosis are in the communities before they fluoridate, even though they know that this level indicates whether children are being overdosed or not.
  5. No US agency has yet to respond to Luke's finding that fluoride accumulates in the human pineal gland, even though her finding was published in 1994 (abstract), 1997 (Ph. D. thesis), 1998 (paper presented at conference of the International Society for Fluoride Research), and 2001 (published in Caries Research).
  6. The CDC's 1999, 2001 reports advocating fluoridation were both six years out of date in the research they cited on health concerns.

Fluoridation is UNDEFENDABLE IN OPEN PUBLIC DEBATE
The proponents of water fluoridation refuse to defend this practice in open debate because they know that they would lose that debate. A vast majority of the health officials around the US and in other countries who promote water fluoridation do so based upon someone else's advice and not based upon a first hand familiarity with the scientific literature. This second hand information produces second rate confidence when they are challenged to defend their position. Their position has more to do with faith than it does with reason.
Those who pull the strings of these public health 'puppets', do know the issues, and are cynically playing for time and hoping that they can continue to fool people with the recitation of a long list of "authorities" which support fluoridation instead of engaging the key issues. As Brian Martin made clear in his book Scientific Knowledge in Controversy: The Social Dynamics of the Fluoridation Debate (1991), the promotion of fluoridation is based upon the exercise of political power not on rational analysis.
The question to answer, therefore, is:
"Why is the US Public Health Service choosing to exercise its power in this way?"
Motivations - especially those which have operated over several generations of decision makers - are always difficult to ascertain. However, whether intended or not, fluoridation has served to distract us from several key issues.

It has distracted us from:
  1. The failure of one of the richest countries in the world to provide decent dental care for poor people.
  2. The failure of 80% of American dentists to treat children on Medicaid.
  3. The failure of the public health community to fight the huge over consumption of sugary foods by our nation's children, even to the point of turning a blind eye to the wholesale introduction of soft drink machines into our schools. Their attitude seems to be if fluoride can stop dental decay why bother controlling sugar intake.
  4. The failure to adequately address the health and ecological effects of fluoride pollution from large industry. Despite the damage which fluoride pollution has caused, and is still causing, few environmentalists have ever conceived of fluoride as a 'pollutant.'
  5. The failure of the US EPA to develop a Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for fluoride in water which can be scientifically defended.
  6. The fact that more and more organofluorine compounds are being introduced into commerce in the form of plastics, pharmaceuticals and pesticides.

Despite the fact that some of these compounds pose just as much a threat to our health and environment as their chlorinated and brominated counterparts (i.e. they are highly persistent and fat soluble and many accumulate in the food chains and our body fat), those organizations and agencies which have acted to limit the wide-scale dissemination of these other halogenated products, seem to have a blind spot for the dangers posed by organofluorine compounds.
So while fluoridation is neither effective nor safe, it continues to provide a convenient cover for many of the interests which stand to profit from the public being misinformed about fluoride.
Unfortunately, because government officials have put so much of their credibility on the line defending fluoridation, it will be very difficult for them to speak honestly and openly about the issue. As with the case of mercury amalgams, it is difficult for institutions such as the American Dental Association to concede health risks because of the liabilities waiting in the wings if they were to do so.
However, difficult as it may be, it is nonetheless essential - in order to protect millions of people from unnecessary harm - that the US Government begin to move away from its anachronistic, and increasingly absurd, status quo on this issue. There are precedents. They were able to do this with hormone replacement therapy.
But getting any honest action out of the US Government on this is going to be difficult. Effecting change is like driving a nail through wood - science can sharpen the nail but we need the weight of public opinion to drive it home. Thus, it is going to require a sustained effort to educate the American people and then recruiting their help to put sustained pressure on our political representatives. At the very least we need a moratorium on fluoridation (which simply means turning off the tap for a few months) until there has been a full Congressional hearing on the key issues with testimony offered by scientists on both sides. With the issue of education we are in better shape than ever before. Most of the key studies are available on the internet and there are videotaped interviews with many of the scientists and protagonists whose work has been so important to a modern re-evaluation of this issue.
With this new information, more and more communities are rejecting new fluoridation proposals at the local level. On the national level, there have been some hopeful developments as well, such as the EPA Headquarters Union coming out against fluoridation and the Sierra Club seeking to have the issue re-examined. However, there is still a huge need for other national groups to get involved in order to make this the national issue it desperately needs to be.
I hope that if there are RFW readers who disagree with me on this, they will rebut these arguments. If they can't than I hope they will get off the fence and help end one of the silliest policies ever inflicted on the citizens of the US. It is time to end this folly of water fluoridation without further delay. It is not going to be easy.
Fluoridation represents a very powerful "belief system" backed up by special interests and by entrenched governmental power and influence.

I’m posting this because I’ve spent countless hours googling and looking at every forum possible to find out more about Special Forces (SF), selection (SFAS), the 18X pipeline, and everything related to Green Berets. I got a lot of helpful information from the internet and by talking with people already in SF that really prepared me for the pipeline. I’m only posting this because I want to be able to pass along this knowledge to others going down this route and hopefully answer questions that I wish I had answered when I was going through.
I am not posting this because I think I’ve made it - I passed SFAS and am now in the Q Course, so I’ve by no way made it. I am not posting this with the intent on helping people cheat the course (people typically call this “G2” or getting “intel” on the course). None of the information I’m passing along isn’t already in the public domain. I hope this information helps people prepare, train, and understand the SF pipeline up to SFAS. I’ll answer all questions in this public forum but probably won’t do individual/private messages.
I’m going to roughly break down my thoughts thematically and chronologically so it isn’t an enormous amount of rambling.
18X/REP63 Contract
All I wanted to do in the Army was go SF so I made that very clear to my recruiter. You have the power in that relationship with the recruiter - they can’t force you to sign a contract that you don’t want so make sure you stand up for yourself. If they say they don’t have any 18X contracts, then wait until they have it or talk to another recruiter in your area. DO NOT RELY ON PICKING IT UP IN OSUT (OSUT is basic training and infantry training combined) - we had zero people pick it up in our OSUT class. If this is what you want, then don’t leave your future up to chance. Be mature and advocate for yourself with your recruiter to get the contract you want and be willing to wait or go somewhere else to get it.
I’m very happy that I went the National Guard (NG) route. Not many people know about this route and always say they wish they did. The 18X/REP63 pipeline is exactly the same until you graduate and go to your SF group - Active Duty (AD) guys will go to their active duty group and NG guys will go back to their state. I ultimately chose the NG route because there was a unit in my home state and it would allow me flexibility when/if I make it to have a piece of civilian life with my SF duties. Nobody likes to think about it, but statistically only ~30% of people make it through SFAS. And that’s not including all the people that get dropped before SFAS from injuries, failed PT tests, stupid mistakes, and life factors that result in not making it through the pipeline. So, by going NG, you have a fall back plan if things don’t go according to plan. Granted that “fall back plan” can become an easy excuse to quit when you’re deep in the suck, so if you’re not committed enough that’s definitely dangerous. I recommend people look into the NG route if you want to go SF - I’m very aware that it’s not for everyone and it definitely has its drawbacks, but it’s important to know all of your options.
Prep Before OSUT
I was in extremely good shape going into OSUT and I lost a lot of that strength throughout OSUT. You’re not getting great sleep or food and the physical training (PT) is meant to get the bottom 10% of the OSUT class to pass the minimum standards. The PT program is not meant to get in shape guys stronger. So you’ll definitely have to do a lot of bodyweight work on your own in the barracks to maintain strength or get stronger. Even though I lost a lot of that strength, I was still glad I physically trained a lot before because I had a higher bar to drop from if that makes sense.
I did a decent amount of rucking before I came to OSUT and I wouldn’t say that’s super necessary. Any rucking progress you make in the months before OSUT will be hard to maintain in OSUT because your rucks are very slow group marches that are way below the speed you’ll need for SF standards. But I’m glad I did because I learned what the different speeds felt like - I knew what a 12:00 / 13:00 / 14:00 / 15:00 ruck generally felt like. But that’s all stuff you’ll learn when you make it to Fort Bragg and can ruck on your own and in the prep course. Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about rucking before OSUT
Basic Training/OSUT
I’m not sure how it’s working now, but infantry OSUT for me was 22 weeks. That’s a very long time and it definitely felt like that, especially because the world changed with COVID about halfway through. I’d say the most important thing is to have a goal/skill you want to work on in OSUT. I knew I was a good leader in sports/my civilian life, but I knew that this leadership environment would be different; a mixture of some highly motivated/capable guys, 18 year olds that joined without fully knowing what they were getting into, and people from all different races, class, education levels, and motivations.
So I told myself I’d use this as an opportunity to practice how to lead a guerilla army - how do you gain respect, understand, teach and lead a diverse group like this? I sought out leadership positions throughout OSUT and tried different techniques to connect with different groups of guys in the platoon. That gave me something to focus on and develop a skill that I knew I’d need further down the line.
There are a lot of other goals you can use. Focusing heavily on improving physical fitness and doing a lot of extra PT on your own or leading group PT in the barracks. If you know you lack discipline, really lean in on making your lockeequipment/uniform/behavior always super disciplined. Things like that will help you get a solid take away from your time in OSUT and not make it feel like a waste of time.
You do morning PT of either track running or calisthenics like pushups/situps and other body weight work. It’s not very challenging if you’re in shape and can get redundant. Then you have breakfast and do your training for the day. If you’re going to the shooting range you’ll spend almost all day there, or you’ll do medical training week, or other random stuff. Land navigation week was pretty good training in OSUT so take that seriously because it’s a good base for the rest of the SF pipeline. I honestly don’t remember most of the training now but it wasn’t very hard. My platoon got more tactical training because we took it upon ourselves to work with our Senior Drill Sergeant to really get a lot out of our field training exercises on ambushes and raids so I actually learned a lot there. The training is what you make of it, but also how much your Drill Sergeants care.
Airborne
Airborne is your first taste of “freedom” where you have your phone, can choose what you eat in the dining hall (DFAC), and you can do your own PT in the morning (at least we could because of COVID). The school itself isn’t hard, just don’t get hurt. Listen to all the instructions, get a strong exit out of the airplane, and know what to do for malfunctions and when to pull your reserve parachute. I knew some good guys that had bad luck and broke their legs on jumps which really sucks. But that’s a small minority - if you do what they teach and don’t panic you’ll be okay. It was pretty cool the first time, but after that I just focused on not getting hurt. Don’t touch your equipment once you’ve been inspected in the parachute shed or they will recycle you.
Special Forces Prep Course (SFPC)
SFPC, used to be called SOPC, is designed to prepare 18x’s for the physical events and land navigation portion of SFAS. And I’d say it does a good job at that. You do two PT sessions a day and usually have a class in the middle of the day. Classes vary from simple knot tying, blister care, a leadership practice course, one obstacle course, land navigation classes, and other things. The mornings are usually a run varying from 1 mile repeats to a 5 mile run. The afternoon is typically push ups, calisthenics, and ruck based workouts (we didn’t use weights because of COVID so we would do pushes over our head or ruck rows/squats). Then every week on Friday you do a ruck 4M, 6M, 8M, 10M, and the final 12M.
The last week of the course is designed to simulate Gate Week in SFAS; Gate Week is week one of SFAS that has runs and rucks to judge your individual physical capability. So the last week of SFPC is an APFT + 6 pull ups, 5M Run, and 12M ruck - the standards are Army standards, so no secrets exposed here: 240+, 5M in less than 40 minutes, 12M ruck under 3:00 (less than 15:00 pace).
Those minimum scores will not get you selected.
Big things to focus on in SFPC - keep your PT numbers up, stretch a ton, and DO NOT GET HURT. We had a lot of guys get hurt in our SFPC class and that will mess up your pipeline and result in not going to SFAS when you’re supposed to. Push yourself in SFPC, but not to the point that you’ll get injured. If you’ve played sports you’ll know the difference between being hurt and being injured. Going into SFAS injured is an easy way to get dropped because you’ll have very little time to recover while there.
Also, if you can’t climb rope, get some extra reps of that during SFPC. There are plenty of ropes around Bragg you can use. You’ll only climb rope on the Nasty Nick obstacle course but you won’t get much training on that in SFPC so you have to seek it out on your own. You’ll do a mini obstacle course during SFPC which is a confidence booster.
SFAS
SFAS is broken into three weeks - Gate Week, Land Navigation, and Team Week. I’m not going to give away any information that isn’t already out there, so this is pretty generic.
Gate Week is a week of physical events to see if you can physically withstand the rigors of SFAS and are strong enough to be SF. Events include the APFT+6 pull ups, unknown standard/distance runs and rucks, obstacle course, and other physical events. You won’t know the time or distance of the events, so it’s important to do your best and try to be in the top half or top third of the class.
Land Navigation is a week of practice events and two nights of the graded Star Course. Take the practice events very seriously - you’ll be able to get a good feel for the terrain, what it’s like to go through a draw in day vs. night, narrow down your pace count, and gain confidence.
General Tips
Team Week is the differentiating factor in SFAS. It’s the hardest, most challenging thing I’ve ever done and will definitely test you. It’s very important that you just be yourself - you can’t fake who you really are when you’re that exhausted, stressed, hungry, and tired. Lean on your strengths and help in any way possible. I know that’s all super generic but I’m not giving away any of the events or how to do anything because team week is the most important part of SFAS to make sure the rights guys get through. The classic advice you always hear is “Don’t Quit.” Definitely true in team week.
Overall, I have a lot of respect for SFAS. It’s brutal and will challenge you in many different ways. But it’s not impossible. Just avoid making unforced errors - that’s key. if they tell you to have your equipment set up in a certain way, set it up exactly like that. If they say have x,y,z packed, then have all of that packed. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot by making avoidable mistakes on very obvious and clearly stated standards.
Other Random Thoughts
The 18X pipeline is very long, so you really need to know that this is what you want. Write out exactly why you want/need to do this. If you can’t put it into words, or it doesn’t go deeper than “I think it’d be really cool” then you’re screwed. You’ll see along the way a lot of guys that aren’t serious about it, signed up on a whim, or aren’t physically/mentally prepared for this job. Those guys will pass along the wayside, so really make sure you make friends with motivated and serious candidates. Have people that will push you and keep you accountable.
30th AG is the inprocessing center for 18X’s going to infantry OSUT at Fort Benning. That place is AWFUL. I can’t imagine how much worse it is with COVID. Don’t lose hope there - and I’m not kidding, I saw a lot of guys just completely lose it there. You will get out of there and move on to OSUT but that place sucks. Keep your eye on the prize, meet some good friends, and just try to keep a somewhat positive attitude. You’ll be kept up all night, standing in the cold, waiting in lines, getting yelled at by drill sergeants, having civilians herd you like sheep through all of your equipment issuing/shots/medical/finance, and other soldiers acting like idiots. I wish someone braced me for what 30th would be like, so let this be your warning. It should only last 10 or so days, but sometimes people can be stuck there longer. Stay strong.
I’d recommend keeping a journal of the pipeline so you can think through your thoughts. There will be a lot of good times and a lot of trying times and putting your thoughts onto paper can be helpful in processing those. And it’ll be cool to look back on at the end.
When you get to Fort Bragg, don’t overdo the drinking/eating out. It’ll be your first taste of legitimate freedom and you’ll want to live it up, but you really need to stay focused. Drinking is detrimental to your physical performance and can undo all of the hard work and gains you’ve made on your own or in SFPC. Also, alcohol related incidents are the easiest way to get kicked out of the pipeline so it’s a huge risk that’s not worth the reward. Have a few now and then if you’re of age, but don’t over do it.
Practical Tips
I’m sure I’ll think of more things, and please ask as many questions as you want. I’ll do my best to circle back and answer all that I can. I’ve gotten a lot from these forums in the past so I just wanted to help out anyone going through the pipeline. Good luck and stay focused.
