About halfway down the article, there's an interesting and informative demographic about how different voting blocs acted during the 2020 election compared to elections past. Compared to 2016, President Trump gained:
+3 points with white women
+6 points with black men
+5 points with black women
+4 points with Hispanic men
+5 points with Hispanic women
+7 with Asians and other minority ethnicities
The trend is unmistakably clear - the cultural zeitgeist was that minorities would break heavily away from Trump, and not only did that not happen, the reverse ended up happening among every single group.
What was the reasons for this? Does it call into question the longstanding assumption of Democrats being ascendant in the future as the party of "rising minorities"? And can Republicans build on this in 2022 (and conversely, can Democrats push back and attempt to recapture some of the minority vote they lost)?
This is going to be a long - and for some boring - writing so buckle up with your favorite drink and snack. We’re going on a deep dive.

Inflation is rising. It’s inevitable and the rise may come more steeply and rapidly than anticipated leaving the FED (and central banks) no other option than to halt money supply by stopping QE. The FED will also need to rise the interest rates and less liquidity will be flowing into the market and a decline of GDP into what may become the next recession. There's no predictable way to foresee when shit hits the fan. The only thing I observe is that all the pointers are looking at this becoming a problem soon.
Scroll to the end for ideas on how to capitalize on this.
Most of the economics theory used in this post is from the Oxford Economics twelfth edition (ISBN: 978-0-19-956338-8) for those of you that actually know how to read.
Inflation is fairly simple and is just the term for an increase in the price level whether it be from a once-and-for-all event or a continued sustained event.
The theory describes the event that drives inflation as an inflationary shock and can be caused by either a supply shock or a demand shock.
A negative supply shock can be cause by rapid rise in the raw materials required to produce, such as oil, steel, iron and so on. It can also be caused by large increases in the wages (often large increases are required) which then directly impacts the total cost to produce the given goods.
In short, a negative supply shock can be categorised as follow:
>An event that directly impacts the cost to produce the goods which in turn raises the price of the final product
This event can be modelled with SRAS (short-run aggregate supply) . We're not going into modelling this as it would be pointless, we just need to understand the dynamics this curve have.
When the total cost to produce increases, the SRAS curve lifts upwards as seen from S... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have invested what I can afford in projects I believe in, but being young and not having a lot of capital at my disposal means that I (and probably a lot of other people too) won’t be able to capitalize big time. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing my investments grow to new time highs. But knowing if I was born a few years earlier I would’ve invested more and invested sooner, is kind of a bummer.
I guess some new project will come about in a couple of years time, but it’s still a little sad to just miss out on one of the biggest investment chances in years.
The Part 1 was first posted on 'the old sub' where it prompted 250+ comments of diamond-level discussion amongst your fellow minority shareholders. Unfortunately it has since been deleted, but I reposted it on superstonk: ^(https://www.reddit.com/r/Superstonk/comments/mlb3nm/the_game_did_not_stop_project_quick_update_plans/)
Here is a TL;DR of the first DD:
Some responses to the bearish comments on v1. I think they are valid observations, but I think the conclusions some people are drawing are boomer-wisdom uninformed by actual facts about the eSports and gaming industries in 2021 and onwards.
This is a different packaging of a recent post but I think it needs to be worded direct for us smooth brained Apes and not missed.

Good info to consider- NOT financial advice.
Edit 1: There is an Ape that must be tired and is commenting not to make you all aware of this potential tactic. The point of the post is to make you aware of this possible scenario. It is something that COULD happen and if we get any disruptions and see shit like this go down, be aware.

Why are you still quiet? You think 6 months down the line, anyone will even care about this? CAPITALIZE ON THIS MOMENT! You should feel no guilt.

For everyone considering an investment in GME's little sister - wanted to open the floor to a few facts and why AMC is not GME and how "big finance" has already dumped on retail investors, and are about to celebrate big plays for round 2.
The kicker: There are BIG incentives to keep prices elevated in the short term. AMC has already stated they're in the midst of considering whether to issue more shares again and dilute you further, which would be the mother of short squeeze killers.
The insider conundrum: What might seem bizarre and bullish is that based on the SEC filings to date, the largest insiders have NOT exited their positions yet, unlike insiders at Koss who were happy to unload their entire portfolio. Unfortunately, altruism and optimism are almost certainly not the explanation as share prices are still far above... keep reading on reddit ➡
In my area I estimate a quarter of the MLS listings I read have the first letter of every single word capitalized. Why? Was anyone trained this way for some reason? It Drives Me Insane.
I searched for "=UPPER(LEFT(A2,1))&LOWER(RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-1))" this formula but the sentence after a full stop '.' is lower case as well. I want the first letter of every sentence to be capital.
for example i want my sentence to look like: Hi how are you? I visited the park yesterday. I returned home by midnight. Grabbed a quick bite from the local restaurant.
from the above example you can see the first letter of every sentence are capitalized.
Excel 2016 is what i am using i suppose.
Any help will be really appreciated thank you and kind regards.
It's not Chicago style which specifies "the captain" and a similar style with other ranks and titles (IE, king) when replacing the name with the rank (except when you're directly addressing the individual in a quote." AP style is the same:
Spell out and lowercase a title when it is substituted for a name: Gen. John J. Pershing arrived today. An aide said the general would review the troops.
And I've seen it a lot in science fiction novels, and not simply self-published novels, but Tor and Baen. Is it a case of a house style that goes against standard formats, or is there another standard I'm unaware of?
Stylistically, which do you think works better?
So, apparently, Fiji castaways agreed beforehand, that, if there's a car challenge, then anybody who wins gives this car to Dreamz. When the time came, Yau did give the car to Dreamz, but in exchange for the immunity at the Final Four. So he tried to capitalize on this (which I guess was not discussed).
If that is so, Yau can be considered somewhat sneaky and is Dreamz then so bad because he went back on his word? Or we can really say that Yau had what was coming to him (because he tried to capitalize on the car thing)?
Still Dreamz is hated by a lot of people and Yau is one of the most favorite people ever.
I think the top 3 most obvious answers to this question would be Hellboy, Fables, and Saga. They are comic book universes with unique tones that would be incredibly difficult to make in live action without making some major changes I believe. I would have also said Locke and Key or Umbrella Academy, but those already got turned in live action series (And in Locke and Key's case I think it kind of holds it back).
So what are some other creator-owned comics with mature themes but wacky, creative worlds that you think could get there own animated series in the following years?
