Earning Reports on TD Ameritrade


I really like it that TD Ameritrade has a calendar marking the dates of all the earning reports for the companies you’re investing or tracking. Super convenient since I usually calendar in each company’s earning report in my Google Calendar and Google Tasks.

Attachments that Causes Us Suffering


“Emptiness” is all around us, yet we make it something and we attach ourselves to it. We have attachments to things, which cause us an emotional suffering when we have a hard time paying for the debt it caused, or when the item is damaged or lost. We also have attachments to events and people that causes us sadness or worse, anger. Is it something or is it nothing? What we think is something is actually nothing. Our attachment to a thing, event, or person that causes us suffering is something only if we think it is something. Through detachment, we realize that “something” is actually “nothing.” Through this practice, we can alleviate our suffering and in turn, help others. – Jon Riki Karamatsu -
