Past week review 5/23-5/29: Random things

Standard

This past week was a lazy week. I did not learn Spanish as much as I want to, did not practice keyboard, and did not read any new book. I did not even have a topic to write, so I decided to write about random things in my life.

Bloomberg Game Changer

Standard

I just got back to my studio last night, kind of exhausted :(. I will try to catch up with my writing this weekend. In the meantime, I want to introduce you with Bloomberg Game Changer series. My friend said that watching this show was much more interesting than TVB drama because it was about true stories. I have watched lately the stories of Richard Branson (CEO of Virgin Atlantic) and Marc Andreessen (founder of Netscape). Their stories are so amazing and inspiring. Whether you are interested in entrepreneurship or not, I think the show is worth-seeing to strengthen your courage, initiation, and hardship in what you are doing now.

I did have a really good time in OC with my parents. My dad told me that everything happened for a reason. If you try to understand it, you will find a way to solve the problem. So don’t give up and don’t forget to take time with your loved ones.

Bloomberg, CNBC, Yahoo and Google Finance

Standard

In financial market, CNBC and Bloomberg are two specialized TV channels that you should watch. The websites are very informative and reliable. I prefer Bloomberg because I can watch live for free online ^.^, but it depends on the internet speed. Someday the connection is really bad and I will not be able to watch it at all >.< CNBC does have plenty of videos with all kinds of topics. The clips have solid information which is very helpful if you understand. I am still learning, and it is so excited when I understand what they are talking about.

Is Gold a good investment?

Standard

A lot of my friends think that gold price has always been going up and buying gold is absolutely a good investment. However, the fact is that gold has fallen half the price in 1980s, and fallen further down in 1990s. Will history repeat? Maybe, but I do not know when. Overall, its price has risen since 1975, so it is a good investment hedging against inflation, but not good for speculators (who are trading gold in short terms).
