The Many Advantages of Contracts for Difference (CFDs)

(November 18, 2020)--Contracts for difference are unique in the world of trading. Because they are derivatives, the buyer does not need to own the underlying asset. Compared to stocks and futures, CFDs offer a lot more flexibility and are not nearly as structured, so you never have to worry about expiration dates. Those are just a few representative examples of how stock shares and futures are completely different than a contract for difference. In all, CFDs carry numerous advantages for traders of all experience levels, including liquidity, the ability to use a high amount of leverage, the advanced trading platforms, and the ability to make large profits in a short amount of time. There's more to it than that, so here's a quick look at... Read more →


Labor Caucus Fighting for Worker Funding for 2021 Federal Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Congressmen Donald Norcross (D-NJ) and Mark Pocan (D-WI) are leading a letter this week to Congressional leadership requesting they include funding for key federal programs that implement and enforce worker safety measures, protect workers’ rights to organize, and provide access to employer and employee training – especially registered apprenticeships – in any final appropriations package for the 2021 fiscal year. The measures outlined in the letter were already included in the House-passed appropriations package but excluded from the Senate package detailed this week. In less than a week, over 40 members of Congress have joined the Labor Caucus, dedicated to centralizing the needs of working people and the labor movement in Congress. “How we invest our nation’s funding is a reflection of our...

Air Conditioning Units: Their Common Problems and Corresponding Solutions

Image Source (November 18, 2020)--I think everybody would agree that we cannot live without air conditioning units or commonly known as AC, especially during hot seasons like summer. They make our lives more comfortable since they make every place cooler. When they are in good condition and work optimally, they make everything in our lives so much easier. We sleep, work, and hang around better with them in our day-to-day lives. But what if they are not always on their best foot forward? What if they experience derailments too? Are our lives still as comfortable as they were when these ACs were still serving their purpose? Or would they add to the usual predicaments we face every day? Regardless of the answer, know that air... Read more →

How Families Can Stay Safe During Pandemic Many colleges will soon close until the spring semester as COVID-19 surges nationwide. A Virtua Health expert – and dad of a returning college student – offers advice. (Marlton, N.J.) Like many parents, Dr. Chris Pomrink will bring his son home from college for Thanksgiving and an extended winter break.

NJ Fixing 3 Critical Bridges - State Needs Strong Fix-It-First Instead of Hwy Widening

HOME COUNTRY: The Unique Holiday of Thanksgiving

by Slim Randles |CNBNews Columnist When it comes to our unique holiday of Thanksgiving, I think we all can see past the turkey and trimmings to what it’s all about. Oh, there are some historians who will tell us the Pilgrims really didn’t share a meal with the Indians, and that’s okay, because they got grant money to tell us that. And there are other historians who tell us that the Pilgims and the Indians were pals and split the turkey and dressing. And that’s okay, too. Historians have to eat just like the rest of us. But to me, that’s immaterial. No matter who came up with the idea, it’s a good idea. At least once a year we need to pause and give... Read more →

(November 18, 2020)--Online betting has become increasingly popular across many countries and with the increase in technology, wider coverage of sports, and the amount of data that is available, there is no wonder why.

Now, with the many online gambling sites that are out there, you can back a horse or join a blackjack table in no time at all, and while that is very convenient and many find it great fun, you do need to have discipline...

(LAS VEGAS) — Pennsylvania’s online and retail sportsbooks celebrated the second anniversary of the launch of legal sports betting in the state with its first $500 million month.
