Last Wish!

The Last Wish

A death row inmate awaiting execution, asked as a last wish a pencil and paper. After writing for several minutes, the convict called the prison guard and asked that this letter be handed over to his biological mother.

The letter said ...

Mother, if there were more justice in this world, we would be both executed and not just me. You're as guilty as I am for the life I led.
Remind yourself when I stole and bring home the bicycle of a boy like me?
You helped me to hide the bicycle for my father did not see it. Do you remember the time I stole money from the neighbor's wallet?
You went with me to the mall to spend it.
Do you remember when I argued with my father and he's gone?
He just wanted to correct me because I stole the final result of the competition and for that I had been expelled.
Mom, I was just a child, shortly after I became a troubled teenager and now I'm a pretty malformed man.
Mom, I was just a child in need of correction, and not an approval. But I forgive you!
I just want this letter to reach the greatest number of parents in the world, so they can know what makes all people, good or bad ...is education.
Thank you mother for giving me life and also helping me to lose it. 
Your child offender.

Good Jobs Report Means a Change in Monetary Policy 22/6/2015

Good Jobs Report Means a Change in Monetary Policy 11/6/2015

GREAT NEWS, good job report = a great day for stocks. BAD NEWS, now the FED will raise rates = bad day for stocks!

Hiring at American companies shifted into higher gear in October, helping to lift wages and clearing the path for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates next month. The 271,000 jump in payrolls reported by the Labor Department on Friday was much more robust than expected and suggested that the economy had enough strength to allow the central bank to begin its move away from the crisis-level interest rate policy it has been following for nearly eight years. 


Fed officials were poised to raise short-term interest rates from near zero earlier this year, but they held off as economic conditions overseas worsened and domestic job growth slackened in August and September. 


But now the underlying solidity evident in the October report is expected to strengthen the hand of monetary policy hawks who favor an increase in short-term rates, while reassuring Janet L. Yellen, the chairwoman of the Federal Reserve, and her centrist colleagues that the economy can handle modestly higher borrowing costs.
