Webolution: The “Media Minefield”

We begin this “summit week” with a few notes about the online digital revolution that’s underway.  What we shorthand as The Webolution. For new readers, there are now two governments in most countries of the world.  A constitutional government (old...

Coping: “Messin’ with Authority”

I have (like I need it) another new hobby. OMG, what now? Turns out on eBay, there are all kinds of now-defunct magazines available on CD and DVDs for a reasonable price.  I think in the last month I’ve picked up $150 worth of such collections.  Great sources of...

Heartbeat of the Market

I do not know when I have been more excited about something: In our decade-plus search to find new ways to analyze stock market data we have come up with a regular heartbeat to the market. In today’s report, we not only tell you how to calculate this heartbeat...

Is You a Bull? Or, Is You a Bear?

A couple of readers Wednesday noticed that a few things on UrbanSurvival stopped working for a while.  For example, our “header image” went missing for a couple of hours.  And when it came back, the next issue was when people wanted to make a reply to a...

World War Web is On

Is World War III underway already except no one knows it because it’s hidden in plain sight?  Are you immune to it yourself because you fail to view your phone or computer as a “battle space viewer?”  Strong case to be made for that… one that...

Soft Summer Peak, But Then What?

Our view of economics data is just settling now.  Been up since 1:30 this morning, in fact, working on several items for the in-depth on Peoplenomics tomorrow. The super-short version (free, lol) is that there is a case for a “soft summer rise” into about...

Coping: Countercyclical Living

This may seem like a strange topic, but when we get into the hot part of summer its often the best time of the year to go shopping for cold-weather goods. A few idea on how to get the most for your money are implied in this approach which distills down to...
