Not a Disaster: the Stock Market

The tsunami striking Japan was definitely a disaster, and in Hawai’i we’ve had damage that is disastrous on a smaller scale. But one thing that hasn’t been a disaster since the tsunami is the stock market.

The market had spun itself somewhat downward in late February and continued that through early February, but as of now–March 29, 2011, so with about a week’s worth of trading to go–the market has done just fine and dandy.

The Vanguard Total Stock Index Fund (VTSMX), the index on which the majority of my model portfolio depends, is up–a measly 0.974%, but up. Additionally, the Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund (VGTSX), which would seem more vulnerable to a natural disaster in Japan, has also been down, but just a hair–0.56%.

So far, the tsunami which did tons of damage to the islands of Japan has done about none to the markets.

    If you are a smoker who has tried to stop and couldn’t, you know how hard it is to just quit. If you are not a smoker but have loved ones who do, believe me, it IS hard to simply quit smoking. This article is addressed to the smoker. In it, I am going to explain why it is hard to quit smoking and tell you about an easy way to remove cigarettes from your life without trying to quit. You Didn’t Always Smoke Think back to the time before you started smoking. Whoops, that’s a long, long time ago, isn’t it If you are like most smokers who are trying to quit cigarettes, you have smoked for over 20 years and you started before the age of 18. Some people even start much earlier You probably can’t remember a time when you didn’t smoke because of many years and over 100,000 cigarettes. Yikes More than 100,000 cigarettes smoked Yes The average cigarette smoker uses one pack of 20 cigarettes per day. That is 600 Beats By Dr. Dre Headphones cigarettes per month and 7,200 cigarettes per year. So after 20 years, it’s, around 144,000 cigarettes Now that’s a lot of smokes. Of course, if you’ve smoked longer than 20 years, it’s even more. So it’s easy to see why the smoker simply can’t remember a time when they didn’t smoke. Of course, another big reason the smoker doesn’t remember is the seriously unpleasant nature of the learning to smoke process. You see, learning to smoke was the hardest and most miserable task you undertook in http://www.monsterbeatsprice.com your young life Smoking was something that you had to learn to do. You didn’t simply pick up a cigarette and start smoking. It took a while with persistence and enduing great misery to learn to smoke. What were you learning You were learning to suppress your body’s normal protective reactions to hot, polluted smoke entering your delicate lungs. Lungs designed for clean air only You were learning to control your body with your mind The Body’s Protective Reaction to Beats by Dr.Dre Justbeats Cigarette Smoke Cigarette smoke is hot, caustic, chemical pollution. If it gets in your eyes, it makes them burn and water. It can make your skin itch in really sensitive people. If you inhale the hot smoke, it makes you cough, gag and gasp for breath. This is the body’s way of telling you smoking a cigarette isn’t really a good thing to do. This reaction is what happens to the smoker to be with the first series Diddybeats High Performance In-ear Headphones with ControlTalk(white) of cigarettes. But the person really, really wants to smoke so they persist.
