Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images Since we haven’t even been able to do the 2020 Summer Olympics yet, it can be easy to forget that the 2022 Winter Olympics are fast approaching.

Secondary Markets

Buying something from the creator or issuer is often called the “primary market.” Reselling it to someone else is often called the “secondary market.” I have spent my career in the primary market, buying equity from very young companies and holding it for many years usually until a sale or IPO. That has worked well for me over the years but recently, I have watched a vibrant secondary market develop for private company shares and I think that is a good thing as I believe more liquidity is better...

Divisional Play Doesn’t Tell The Whole Story

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, The division-centric NHL season of 2020-21, particularly with the seven Canadian teams tucked away up there in the Great White North, has made it a greater challenge to take in what’s happening across the full 31-team landscape. One month into last season’s schedule, for instance, the Bruins had played 13 games, against 12 opponents, and only four were division brethren. On Friday night at Madison Square Garden, the Bruins played their 1...

How The Band Phish Played Chess Against Its Fans on New Year's Eve

An anonymous reader writes: So on New Year's Eve, the "jam" rock band Phish re-broadcast their legendary 1995 performance on New Year's Eve -- while playing a game of chess against the audience. (Just as they'd done in 1995 -- although during that tour they'd made two just moves during each show.) In a video promoting this year's event, a chess "historian" remembers "No single band in the '90s was playing better chess against their audience" and shares an alleged conspiracy theory that they wer...

Entombed beneath Madison Square Garden, the station served 650,000 riders each weekday before the pandemic, or th...

America of the 1930s saw thousands of people become Nazi

During the 1930s, thousands of Americans sympathized with the Nazis, holding huge rallies. The rallies were organized by the American German Bund, which wanted to spread Nazi ideology. Nazi supporters also organized summer camps for kids to teach them their values. Having radical fringe groups tearing at the seams of America is not a new phenomenon. Less than a 100 years ago, the Nazis were gathering for big rallies on U.S. soil, running youth camps, their numbers growing by tens of thousands.I...

Whicker: Lomachenko vs. Lopez winner takes all finally

Joe Brown had 187 professional fights. That doesn’t count all his bouts in the Navy, or, for that matter, the seven times he joined American invasions of Japanese holdings in World War II. Carlos Ortiz lifted Brown’s lightweight title in 1962. He lost it to Ismael Laguna but got it back seven months later. Aside from that interregnum, Brown and Ortiz were lightweight champions from 1956 through 1968. No WBC, no WBA, no EIEIO. Just one. When Ring Magazine landed in the mailbox, the first page you...

Democrats look to flip increasingly ‘purple’ suburbs

No Doubt talks ‘Tragic Kingdom’ at 25: The tears, tours and triumphs behind the classic album

On Oct. 10, 1995, No Doubt’s third album, “Tragic Kingdom,” was released.
