@nicholaslepan California jobless rate falls below 5% for the first time since 2006. The state outpaced the nation in employment growth, expanding at a rate of 2.1% year-over-year, compared with 1.5% nationwide. The construction market is carrying the growth. Good for Canadian lumber companies that bought into California market? $CWX http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-california-jobs-march-20170421-htmlstory.html

@nicholaslepan EVERY DAY ACROSS the nation, people doing work for Google log in to their computers and start watching YouTube. They look for violence in videos. They seek out hateful language in video titles. They decide whether to classify clips as “offensive” or “sensitive.” They are Google’s so-called “ads quality raters,” temporary workers hired by outside agencies to render judgments machines still can’t make all on their own. And right now, Google appears to need these humans’ help—urgently. https://www.wired.com/2017/04/zerochaos-google-ads-quality-raters/?

@nicholaslepan Silver is easier to buy because of its price and you can buy more over a long time and build it easier, then plopping down a load of cash on gold, partly psychological and my current savings strategy can only afford so much physical that does not produce income
