‘Tax cuts for the wealthy have long drawn support from conservative lawmakers and economists who argue that such measures will "trickle down" and eventually boost jobs and incomes for everyone else. But a new study from the London School of Economics says 50 years of such tax cuts have only helped one group — the rich.’ - https://www.cbsnews.com/news/tax-cuts-rich-50-years-no-trickle-down/

I really like that the Mastodon v3.3.0 modal background color changes to match the image https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/15217

In case someone is checking for Mastodon index corruption following this tutorial https://docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/troubleshooting/index-corruption/

Talking about fake news and spreading fake news. It's perfect.
Here is the original video for anyone that understands Portuguese
One of the most known political commentary person in Portugal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_Sousa_Tavares said today in an interview that fake news is a big a threat to democracy and that as soon as 2021 there will be a new technology that will stop fake news. This technology is called... wait for it: blockchain.
When asked what blockchain was by the interviewer (that I suppose has never heard of blockchain) he said that the answer was in the name: to block a chain of fake news. #theirony #fakenews

"I want to say that the treatments we have for depression are appalling. They're not very effective. They're extremely costly. They come with innumerable side effects. They're a disaster. But I am so grateful that I live now and not 50 years ago, when there would have been almost nothing to be done. I hope that 50 years hence, people will hear about my treatments and be appalled that anyone endured such primitive science." - https://www.ted.com/talks/andrew_solomon_depression_the_secret_we_share

Last week a song named WAP by Cardi B was released. I noticed some noise around it and as my company name is https://wap.pt/ I decided to investigate... I think I should buy the Urban Dictionary mug:
When I first started playing with algorithmic trading I thought it would be viable to aim at a >5% per day profit and was confused why more people weren't working on it.
Several years later and with much trial and error, actual reasonable/realistic backtesting and many experiments I think that now I have the answer. A strategy that consistent provides over ~0.2% profit per day is pretty much a best case scenario.
