Faults of Character in Investments: the Personae.

 In investing, particularly for the generally uninformed and dilettante sorts;  various types of flaws of character come to the foray; particularly if one could be seen to be faulty in character. This subject applies to us, succinctly, for that we could (or might) care to try our hand at investing at our age (I'm gearing my content, in this case, to the post-college aged-ish through millennial demographic). Like my target demographic, I am somewhat the speculative investor: new to forex trading, which can move fast, due to the volatility of foreign and global currency markets, (some, and at times, as well - of various means and meanings of times, at that),  given the increased leverage on margin which is afforded to the investor in forex. As such, that the forex markets seem to be a compelling platform for establishing a trading hobby, as a slight towards for a cottage industry professionalism, that things could aught be, given forex trading as the subject, it would be more fruitfu

Scoring Appearances - You're more right, most of the time, yet when you're wrong, it's time to concede.

I recently had an encounter of a chance nature over text message. A guy contacted me about a transaction that began, over craigslist, of which there had been scarcely any such thing going on, in my life, as far as craigslist goes. I was going to purchase a laptop from him, at a given price. When I showed up to meet him, though, he quoted me $400 over what I was expecting to pay, which was the scraping edge of my budget, set aside for the computer in question.  I couldn't purchase the computer, obviously, given the discrepancy. I was legitimately confused, but then again, I felt; "whatever. He's just saying that it's such and such price, and he figures something or other about it."  In Elizabeth Kübler-Ross' séminal work (in the field of psychology), the first stage of loss is disbelief. I didn't quite believe the guy was being genuine, or that I was unsober enough, from then, until the time I met him, after I'd traveled out a good distance to meet him,

Discovering: the in-hand, by-sight explanation of how algae grows, in comparison to "plants."

 Albeit  in the literature, (earlier on), algae had been referred to as "plants," themselves,  Later understandings and publications on Phycology (the science and study of algae) came to recognize the organisms and phylum category of species as separate and distinct from plant life, as we commonly know it, whereas these primordial ocean and sea life precursors to plants, in their similarities, and differences, demonstrate arcane and scarcely documented (check out the date, it's winter of 2020 | 2021!) - the mobile device cameras, on the high-end iPad Pro and Pixel 4a (5G) are marvelous instruments of digital capture.  What eyes may have seen, once before, in former years, as best as they could see them; the mysteries and forma of algae, seaweed, and coralline sea life, were a wide crevasse of primordial simplicity, of some of the micro-organisms of algae, and whereas, formerly, access to high quality nutrients and growth medium materials may have been of a greater cost th

The [white] algae project - producing accelerated GMO Floridian coralline strains of beneficial algae on ocean fauna using ionic mineral-infused water.

An ad-hoc project, as it begins, as I’m new to this. First, an assay of my gathered ocean fauna, in photos.  I’m hoping that the slightly greener tinge of this kelp is a signal of that it has some life in it, yet.  I’m particularly interested in this reddish Florid algae, as it’s complex strands and coralline tendrils suggest a more complex organism. I find that it’s perhaps an ad-hoc growth or attachment (or entanglement, amidst it’s journey to the shore). A strand of kelp. Some promising whitish tendrils, suggestive of new root growth, on the grassy algae-forma.  The tuberous rooting-form of the sea-berry (as I’ll call them, for now). There are hints of reddish growth on this tuber, and some nascent suggestions of perhaps that the specimen has taken root, in the water. The Florid red algae, amidst the grassy algae. A large leaf of kelp. A strand of sea-berries. I’m wondering if the blackened color of the specimens is due to a magnetic effect upon the ionic iron, in gathering iron fro
