Congratulations to American Pharoah, the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. What a life he has now made for his owners and himself. They look to pocket between 40 and 50 million dollars for his breeding rights and he gets to spend the rest of his natural born days romancing the mares. This [...]

Hillary Clinton is once again making a pitch for equal pay for women. She may have a point.

This Week’s Commentary Metals: The metals have pretty much traveled the way of the US Dollar of late. As the Dollar drops to support, metals rally to [...]

Hey Han Solo, do you think you could have parked the Millenium Falcon on that golf course? Or was that Indiana Jones who was unable to avoid the blow darts being shot his way by the locals as he took off which caused the crash? Next time better let Chewbacca do the flying. This Week’s [...]
