Landmark Financial Tokyo Review of Gold and Silver in 2020

Category: 

The prices of gold and silver prices show moderately higher results in midday United States futures trading on January 7, 2020. Because of overnight downside price corrections, it looks like a great buying opportunity, in which prices increase during the day session.

This Landmark Financial Tokyo review of the silver and gold prices in 2020 will discuss valuations and investments. Read on to know more about them.

Gold and Silver Drastic Price Increase

Gold price futures at $4.60 per ounce last February ended at $1,573.30. For silver, the previous higher prices were $0.201 last March and ended at $18.375 an ounce on January 7, 2020. There are a lot of factors that could affect these prices. There’s speculation that if the tension in the Middle East gets worse, gold could hit $1,600 per ounce.

The United States and Iran Tension

Gold soared high as the Middle East tensions heightened between Iran and the United States. The drone airstrike of the United States killed Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian general, in Baghdad, Iraq. This incident boosted the appetite of investors for gold, and the rise shows that.

Many investors and traders probably think that Iran won’t retaliate against the United States that could be devastating to their country. Some veteran market watchers believe that Iran will retaliate but not sooner. The economic effects of the US and Iran retaliation can be impacting as what you’ll find on Landmark Financial Tokyo Review.

15 questions to ask when hiring a social media partner

Category: 

How do you know what to look for in a social media management firm? Here’s what you should ask any agency you consider hiring to manage your social channels.

Nearly a third of the world uses social media regularly, and 92 percent of marketers claim it’s important to their business.

However, many organizations are too busy to focus on bringing social media marketing into the fold; instead they out their social media management to outside firms.

It’s important to make an informed decision before hiring a social media agency or consultant.

These questions will give you a strong understanding of exactly what they’ll provide, what your involvement would be and how the two of you would work together.

1. Who will be managing my social media account(s)?

When you talk to an agency or firm about managing your business’ social media marketing, make sure you ask who will manage your account(s). Will they have a dedicated team member focused on your company or will they have a few people working on it? Who do you contact if you have questions or new information about your business?

2. Do you develop a social media strategy? How do you do this?

It’s really important to have a social media strategy in place before you begin your campaign. This provides a roadmap for which platforms you’ll focus on, how often you’ll update those pages, when updates will go live and what type of content you’ll be sharing.

If you’re talking to a social media expert that doesn’t create a strategy or can’t provide a brief overview of how they create one, move onto another potential partner.

Brewing Beer with Justin Bosch, Parliament Brewing Company

Brewing Beer with Justin Bosch, Parliament Brewing Company

When Sheryl and I moved to Santa Rosa, we were excited to be living in California, but we were also excited to explore the local craft beer scene. As you know, we travel far and wide to find delicious locally brewed craft beer. We had access to a lot of great beer in SW Florida, but now we have access to well established breweries like Russian River Brewing Company, Bear Republic Brewing Company and Lagunitas Brewing Company. There are also a lot of small breweries in town like Cooperage Brewing Company, Plow Brewing Company and Fogbelt Brewing Company. In an effort to visit them all, we discovered Parliament Brewing Company in Rohnert Park, California.

One night we drove down, grabbed a seat at the bar, and ordered a flight. We had a good conversation with the bartender, and ended up meeting Justin Bosch, the brewmaster. We talked for a bit and I mentioned my blog. A few days later we were talking via email and he agreed to an interview. We headed back down on a day they were closed, but Justin was brewing. We spent time together, learned more about the brewery, his beers, his education and his plans for expansion. Did you know a group of owls is called a “parliament?” Justin talks about that, too! This was a fun interview and I enjoyed seeing Justin in his element. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Justin Bosch. Cheers!

Dry needling technique is a skill performed by chiropractic physicians trained. While addressing particular dysfunction in movement, a therapist aims to manage muscular injuries. This technique uses a thin needle made of filiform for skin penetration. They reach deep into the fascia and muscles to identify the trigger and connective tissue points. The results of this technique are speedy healing and muscular pain relief. The decrease in muscular hypertonicity increased joint motion, and correction of movement are the outputs of the procedure. Releasing the trigger point adhesion eases the muscles and reduces pain due to muscular tension.

How to Find Clothing Manufacturers for Startups

Starting a clothing line is a popular startup idea because of its great branding opportunities and relatively low capital requirements. No wonder why we see a lot of clothing startups come and go in the industry. Some fail to leave a mark and eventually go bankrupt while there are many others that become successful and are thriving up to this day. Much like any other business, there is nothing sure with having a clothing line as a business venture. There will always be tough challenges ahead and it is up to the business owner to overcome these.


Most of the time, the biggest challenge for startup clothing lines is finding a start up clothing manufacturer which works perfectly for them. Someone who is willing to provide maximum services despite of the business owners’ initial minimal orders. Most clothing manufacturers prefer working with established brands and companies because of the financial security they get from them. However, the emergence of small businesses through e-commerce paved the way for manufacturers to consider small up to mid-sized businesses as clients.

In this article, we will teach you how to find clothing manufacturers in a different perspective. We already know we can find them in events such as trade and industry fairs or look them up in supplier directories online, but this time we will provide extensive tips on the other aspects of finding a clothing manufacturer.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Launch, Vivo S1 Pro Price in India Reveal, CES 2020 Preview, and More Tech News This Week

 

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite launch was the highlight of the first week of 2020 as the tech companies prepare to show their wares at the next week’s CES 2020 tech fair. We already have some announcements of the products being showcased at CES and we will be talking about some of those as well as what we can expect next week in this wrap. Additionally, Vivo S1 Pro made its India debut and Jiomart was introduced on a pilot basis. Read on for more on the happenings that dominated the tech news space this week.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite launch

In a surprise announcement ahead of CES 2020, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite smartphones. Both smartphones will be going on sale in the coming weeks around the world, but we don’t have India-specific information right now. However, it shouldn’t take very long. As their names suggest, both Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite phones are the budget variants of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 phones, respectively.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite share a couple of specifications, but there are some differences between the two phones as well. Both phones feature 6.7-inch full-HD+ screen with a hole-punch design, however the Galaxy S10 Lite, which is more premium out of the two, uses Super AMOLED Plus display, whereas Galaxy Note 10 Lite has a Super AMOLED display. According to Samsung, “Super AMOLED Plus display creates ergonomic design with thin and light display panel by adopting flexible OLED technology” – whatever that means.

The hedged nature of early retirement extreme

Category: 

There’s one defining characteristic way about the way I plan: I may not win, but I never lose. (You may have picked up this sentiment from some of my discussions of strategy.) Hence I will focus my efforts disproportionally towards avoiding bad outcomes rather than seeking good outcomes. This leads to a modest but tranquil life; perhaps suitable for a stoic.

It also annoys the optimists.

As you may have noted, I have a background in peak oil. Peak oil is currently at a stage where climate change will be in ten years. Nobody denies it anymore. When I first got interested in it, back in 2001/02, this was far from the case. The USGS and the IEA were very optimistic (they have since brought their predictions in line with more realistic numbers based on reality rather than on predicted economic demand(*) ) and peak oilers were somewhat of a fringe group. Officialdom believed in the magic of technology. It was considered a crazy idea that oil would ever exceed $100. (It later did.) We had very reasonable and rational arguments that it would—and it did. But we were unable to convince anyone else about it. We could only prepare for it on our own.

(*) The theory being that if you and I are in a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean and we’re running out of water, then if I write you a big enough check, you will mange to procure/invent a glass of water for me.

What to do? I decided to “leave” the field and stop preaching to the choir—I have learned what I could and taught what I could. (Since then the choir has gotten much much bigger. Back then there were only a small handful of books about peak oil—I’m a coauthor of one of them. Now there are dozens.
