Solar Eclipse

Reading Time: 1 minute

Tomorrow, there will be a Solar Eclipse partial visible during my area. For a brief moment, the Moon will be in line with the Sun blocking it from Earth.

According to TimeandDate.com between 1:11 pm and 3:51pm it will be visible in my area. Hopefully I will be able to witness this when it occurs. If not for the next Solar Eclipse to happen in my area would be June 10th, 2021 and it would be another partial for my area. Maybe in between that time, I might be in a different area and able to view it from a different perspective.

After this Solar Eclipse, the next eclipse would be a partial Lunar eclipse happening January 31st, 2018. And after that another year later on January 20th, 2019 is the next eclipse view-able in my area.

Stockstream – Twitch Channel

Watch live video from StockStream on www.twitch.tv

StockStreamLive is a social experiment billed as “The worlds first cooperative multiplayer Stock Market game using real money.”. Mike Roberts, the creator put $50,000 into an account on Robinhood which stocks being voted on by the channel’s chat. Think Twitch Plays Pokemon but using real money in a stock market. The experiment ends when the account reaches a balance of $25,000, so a loss of half the starting amount.

While I don’t participate in chat for the channel, I routinely monitor the portfolio and twitter feed @stockstream. It is interesting to see the gains and losses that Mike is getting with this experiment. Currently at the time of publication Mike is up over $1,000.
