A reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan to a pretty girl seeking a rich husband

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here.
I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above.
You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.
My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?
I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?
Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.
I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
Ms. Pretty

A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan:

Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.
Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”.
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”.
Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advise that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps.

Casio GR8900a-1 G-Shock Review

This G-Shock GR8900a-1 watch is a robust and heavy looking watch, but in actual fact it is quite light in weight. But it is still extremely sturdy and if you want this as a sports

GR8900a-1 watch them it is certainly up to the task. It looks great both on and off the wrist, and it is surprisingly comfortable too.

G-Shock watches are known for their functionality, and the GR8900a-1 is certainly no exception to that. It has some great features and they are all easy to use and access. This model has a new design, and gives you a multi dimensional look which adds to the character of the watch.

Of course, as with all G-Shock watches, the GR8900a-1 is shock resistant. So if you do want it for wearing while you go about your sports or activities then you can wear this in confidence that it will stand up to anything you put it through.

The GR8900a-1 also has a very bright LED light, that can actually be used for reading a book with. Also handy if you are camping out at night, or on a night walk and you need to read a map as it will provide ample light for you to be able to read from.

A closer look at the GR8900a-1 G-Shock

Solar powered

You may wonder how this watch keeps the bright LED light and the power hungry functionalities of the GR8900a-1 all juiced up. Well, it runs off solar power, and is extremely effective in harnessing the power of the sun and turning it into long lasting power to run the watch.

Even when being used to its full extent, with the light and functions all being used at time, you will still get a lot of life out of this. And it will continue to stay charged as long as you are outside in the light. This is a great way to keep this watch running to its optimal levels at all times.

The GR8900a-1 also uses a power save method. When the watch is left in the dark it will go blank so that no unnecessary power is wasted. If the power does get low on the watch, then there is a power indicator that will let you know that it needs charging so you can get it into the light.

World time

If you travel a lot, you will not have to worry about what the time is in other countries. The GR8900a-1 has 31 built in time zones, covering 48 worldwide cities. You can also turn your daylight saving on or off, depending on where you are. So when you land in a different country you just need to change it to the right time zone and it will automatically set the watch to the right time for you.

G-Shock-GR8900a-1-2a

Stopwatch

The stopwatch on the GR8900a-1 uses 1/100 seconds so you get the most accurate times for your training or events you are at. You also have different measuring modes which include split times, elapsed times and then 1st and 2nd place times. These different modes will allow you to use the stopwatch more effectively in different situations.

Additional information

If you like to have an alarm on your watch, you will be pleased to hear that the GR8900a-1 has 5 different daily alarms that can be used. Set these up with different tones so you can associate a certain tone with a particular event or meeting you have.

There is a countdown timer on the watch too. You can set this to countdown from up to 24 hours. It will count down in 1 second intervals. The GR8900a-1 also has an hourly signal if you like to use one of these. If not, you can simply turn this off.

Final thoughts on the G-Shock GR8900a-1

This watch looks great, with the multi level face and the robust build of the watch. As usual with G-Shock watches, you get a lot of functionality, and this model has a really powerful LED light that can be used for reading. Overall the G-Shock GR8900a-1 is a great quality watch and also really good value for money at the price it is being sold for.

5 Signs That Your Body Is Starving For Vitamins

man tired exercise runningWhen your body is trying to tell you something—for example, that you’re skimping on critical vitamins—it may go to some strange lengths.

“With today’s diet of processed foods, it’s easy to become vitamin-deficient, either by not eating enough of the right foods or not absorbing them properly due to digestive issues,” says Dr. Susan Blum, the founder of the Blum centre for Health and the author of the new book The Immune System Recovery Plan.

“You may not get a disease, but you can end up with impaired functioning, because vitamins are cofactors for all the biochemical reactions in the body. We need them in order to function properly.”

That impaired functioning can sometimes manifest in mysterious ways.

Here are five unusual warning signs that you may be vitamin-deficient. 

The good news: Most are fixable with dietary tweaks—all the more reason to make nutrition a top priority. But if food cures don’t work, be sure to check in with your doctor.

Body Cue No. 1: Cracks at the corners of your mouth.

The Deficiency: Iron, zinc, and B vitamins like niacin (B3), riboflavin (B2), and B12. “It’s common if you’re a vegetarian to not get enough iron, zinc, and B12,” Blum says. Ditto if you’re skimping on essential immunity-building protein due to dieting.

The Fix: Eat more poultry, salmon, tuna, eggs, oysters, clams, sun-dried tomatoes, Swiss chard, tahini, peanuts, and legumes like lentils. Iron absorption is enhanced by vitamin C, which also helps fight infection, so combine these foods with veggies like broccoli, red bell peppers, kale, and cauliflower.

• • •Body Cue No. 2: A red, scaly rash on your face (and sometimes elsewhere) and hair loss.

The Deficiency: Biotin (B7), known as the hair vitamin. While your body stores fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), it doesn’t store most B vitamins, which are water-soluble. Body builders take note: Eating raw eggs makes you vulnerable, because a protein in raw eggs called avidin inhibits the body’s ability to absorb biotin.

The Fix: Reach for more cooked eggs (cooking deactivates avidin), salmon, avocados, mushrooms, cauliflower, soybeans, nuts, raspberries, and bananas.

• • •Body Cue No. 3: Red or white acnelike bumps, typically on the cheeks, arms, thighs, and butt.

The Deficiency: Essential fatty acids and vitamins A and D.

The Fix: Skimp on saturated fat and trans fats, which you should be doing anyway, and increase healthy fats. Focus on adding more salmon and sardines, nuts like walnuts and almonds, and seeds like ground flax, hemp, and chia. For vitamin A, pile on leafy greens and colourful veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes, and red bell peppers. “This provides beta carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, which your body will use to make vitamin A,” Blum says. “For vitamin D, though, I recommend a supplement—2,000 IU a day in one that also contains vitamins A and K, which help with D absorption.”

• • •Body Cue No. 4: Tingling, prickling, and numbness in hands, feet, or elsewhere.

The Deficiency: B vitamins like folate (B9), B6, and B12. “It’s a problem directly related to the peripheral nerves and where they end in the skin,” says Blum, noting that these symptoms can be combined with anxiety, depression, anemia, fatigue, and hormone imbalances.

The Fix: Seek out spinach, asparagus, beets, beans (pinto, black, kidney, lima), eggs, octopus, mussels, clams, oysters, and poultry.

• • •Body Cue No. 5: Crazy muscle cramps in the form of stabbing pains in toes, calves, arches of feet, and backs of legs.

The Deficiency: Magnesium, calcium, and potassium. “If it’s happening frequently, it’s a tip-off that you’re lacking in these,” Blum says. And if you’re training hard, you can lose more minerals (and water-soluble B vitamins) through heavy sweating.

The Fix: Eat more bananas, almonds, hazelnuts, squash, cherries, apples, grapefruit, broccoli, bok choy, and dark leafy greens like kale, spinach, and dandelion.

Communicate Better with Your Significant Other with These 10 Rules

image

No matter how smart you think you are, communicating with your significant other is never easy. That said, it’s not impossible, and according to The Wall Street Journal you can improve your communication with just a few tips.

The idea here is that men and women communicate a little differently, but that doesn’t mean both genders can’t take The Wall Street Journal’s advice as a whole:

FOR MEN

When you are listening

Don’t think about what you are going to say next while the other person is talking.
Ask follow-up questions. This demonstrates that you care.
Consider how the other person wants you to respond.

When you are speaking

Don’t give advice until asked.
Try to identify some of your emotions and take a chance: Express them!

FOR WOMEN

When you are listening

Don’t get upset if the other person seems curt, especially in email or text. This can be simply a matter of style.
Draw someone out with empathic guesses. ‘I imagine you were frustrated.’
Be calm, so the other person feels it is safe to share emotions.

When you are speaking

Edit your story. Pare down emotion and give only essential details. Perhaps prepare bullet points.
Tell him how you want him to respond. ‘More than advice, I need you to just listen.’

It’s a pretty simple set of communication guidelines and if nothing else should give you the time to work through those miscommunications a little more cleanly. Head over to The Wall Street Journal for a few more tips.

Grocery Shopping Tips

image

You are what you eat, so it only makes sense that you think before you do and even before that – plan and shop smart. Hunt for your food like a pro! Healthy grocery shopping is a skill and once you master it, it’ll help you make better eating choices, naturally. Here are some tips on how to get the maximum out of your shopping budget, get the best and get into eating better effortlessly. 

Never go grocery shopping on an empty or a full stomach. 

When you are hungry you are likely to make snap decisions and pick all the wrong things, quick meals and sweets instead of real food. Even someone with the best intentions will be tempted with a pie when the hunger pangs kick in. The complete opposite happens when you go shopping when you have just eaten, you suddenly think you can survive on a few lettuce leaves and some water and end up not buying enough food for the week. Have a snack before you go, a banana or a small yoghurt, or, if you have eaten, wait a little before you go so you can think clearly about what you’re buying.  

Buy real fresh food. 

If it’s been processed it’s not great for you. It’s been designed to look attractive and taste good but it’s probably high in preservatives, sugar and salt and has been through so much processing already it may just as well have been eaten at least once before. And it’s all a trick anyway, you are not saving anything by buying processed food and ready meals – neither time nor money, but you do lose out on the quality. 

Get meat cuts and fish, whole fresh vegetables and fruit, grains, eggs and plain yoghurts. You can do wonders in the kitchen in under 15-20 minutes if your fridge is stocked with these. 

If you have to buy ready meals use a simple rule: the shorter the list of the additives they contain on the packaging – the better it is for you.  Continue reading

10 Mind-Blowing Theories That Will Change Your Perception of the World

Reality is not as obvious and simple as we like to think. Some of the things that we accept as true at face value are notoriously wrong. Scientists and philosophers have made every effort to change our common perceptions of it. The 10 examples below will show you what I mean.

1. Great glaciation.
Great glaciation is the theory of the final state that our universe is heading toward. The universe has a limited supply of energy. According to this theory, when that energy finally runs out, the universe will devolve into a frozen state. Heat energy produced by the motion of the particles, heat loss, a natural law of the universe, means that eventually this particle motion will slow down and, presumably, one day everything will stop.

2. Solipsism.
Solipsism is a philosophical theory, which asserts that nothing exists but the individual’s consciousness. At first it seems silly – and who generally got it into his head completely deny the existence of the world around us? Except when you put your mind to it, it really is impossible to verify anything but your own consciousness.

Don’t you believe me? Think a moment and think of all the possible dreams that you have experienced in your life. Is it not possible that everything around you is nothing but an incredibly intricate dream? But we have people and things around us that we cannot doubt, because we can hear, see, smell, taste and feel them, right? Yes, and no. People who take LSD, for example, say that they can touch the most convincing hallucinations, but we do not claim that their visions are “reality”. Your dreams simulate sensations as well, after all, what you perceive is what different sections of your brain tell you to.

As a result, which parts of existence can we not doubt? None. Not the chicken we ate for dinner or the keyboard beneath our fingers. Each of us can only be sure in his own thoughts.

3. Idealist Philosophy
George Berkeley, the father of Idealism, argued that everything exists as an idea in someone’s mind. Berkley discovered that some of his comrades considered his theory stupid. The story goes that one of his detractors kicked a stone with his eyes closed and said, “There I’ve disproved it!”

The idea being that if the stone really only exists in his imagination, he could not have kicked it with his eyes closed. Refutation of Berkeley is hard to understand, especially in these days. He argued that there is an omnipotent and omnipresent God, who sees all and all at once. Realistic, or not? Continue reading

WHAT THE HELL IS PROJECT MANAGEMENT, ANYWAY?

Project management seems like a classic chicken-and-egg career conundrum: How do you prove you’re adept at managing projects if you haven’t worked as a project manager? Beyond that, what does project management really entail, and how is it different from, you know, being a manager? And what tools do the pros actually use, since there seem to be a new one released every week?

“PROJECT MANAGEMENT” CAN SOUND LIKE EVERYTHING AND NOTHING ALL AT ONCE. WE SPOKE WITH A PROJECT MANAGEMENT PRO TO CLARIFY WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO GET PEOPLE MOVING IN THE SAME DIRECTION.

To better understand some of the managerial speak around project management, I spoke with a 20-year veteran of the field, Frank Ryle. He’s worked as an international project manager for Arup International, managed construction and operation of the first Cadbury Schweppes factory in Russia, and now trains and teaches project management. Ryle analogizes project management to a nine-hole golf metaphor in his book, Keeping Score: Project Management for the Pros, available now as an ebook and due out soon in paperback.

Accomplish Any Goal by Doing Something Small, Every Day

Accomplish Any Goal by Doing Something Small, Every DaySEXPAND

It takes time to do anything worthwhile, but thankfully, we don’t need it all in one chunk. So this year, forget about the year as a whole. Forget about months and forget about weeks.

Focus on days.

This post originally appeared on Austin Kleon’s blog.

The day is the only unit of time that I can really get my head around. Seasons change, weeks are completely human-made, but the day has a rhythm. The sun goes up; the sun goes down. I can handle that.

There’s a reason many recovering alcoholics adopt “one day at a time” as their way of being. Here’s Richard Walker in Twenty-Four Hours A Day:

Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the battles of those two awful eternities, yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives us mad. It is the remorse or bitterness for something that happened yesterday or the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us therefore do our best to live but one day at a time.

Building a body of work (or a life) is all about the slow accumulation of a day’s worth of effort over time. Writing a page each day doesn’t seem like much, but do it for 365 days and you have enough to fill a novel.

The Incredible & Indispensable: 5 Must-Have Apps for your One – HTC Blog

The Incredible & Indispensable: 5 Must-Have Apps for your One – HTC Blog.

So you just picked up your stunningly sexy and sleek HTC One. Congratulations! Now, you’re probably wondering which amongst the virtual sea of Google Play apps will help you best put your One to good use. You’re in luck! We recently asked the HTC community on Twitter to share their top five indispensable apps for the One, which we’ve rounded up for you!

Instagram

The wildly popular mobile photography-based social media network has become a staple in the wake of increasingly powerful mobile phone cameras. Perhaps the first app to popularize photo filters, the collection of filters has increased over time, giving users access to a plethora of photo-customization options. Not much of a photographer? Not to worry: earlier this year Instagram also added support for short videos up to 15 seconds in length. What better way to show off your One’s powerful camera and all of your Zoes?

MX Player

The One comes equipped with a stunning 1080p display. That being said, it would be quite a shame not to put it good use with the occasional movie, right? Enter MX Player: a powerful, versatile, and feature-packed video player. Its support of several subtitle formats makes it perfect for discreet viewing, and its multi-core decoding ensures that you’re utilizing your One’s powerful quad-core processor.

Pocket Casts

Who needs iTunes to enjoy podcasts? Pocket Casts allows users to stay up to date on their favorite podcasts via streaming, or download them directly to their Android device for later listening. Podcasts are sorted through an intuitive, user-friendly graphical interface for easy browsing. Additionally Pocket Casts supports both video and audio podcasts, and has extra features such as variable speed playback, playlists, and the ability to toggle video podcasts to “audio only” when you need to direct your eyes elsewhere.

Waze

Google Maps may have set the standard for smartphone navigation apps, but Waze broke new ground by marrying navigation and crowdsourcing. What does that mean for you? It means access to the latest, user-submitted information on road hazards, construction, accidents, traffic jams, speed traps, and other potential impediments to your travels. Waze automatically updates maps based upon information such as traveling speed, or allows you to manually submit information to the Waze community—all hands free. Picking someone up? Waze connects your Facebook account and allows you to coordinate your travels together, or helps you notify your friends when you’re running behind.

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a favorite cross-platform messaging app amongst those who want an alternative to SMS messaging. Unlike conventional SMS inboxes, Whatsapp logs messages received while offline, allowing users to stay connected no matter what. Whatsapp supports group chat, audio messages, and video messages, and also conveniently syncs automatically with your Address Book. Whatsapp is free for a year—after which it only costs $0.99 annually—and is completely ad-free.

What is your must-download app for the HTC One? Let us know in the comments below.

You’ll Never Send Things To Friends The Same Way Again | PushBullet Blog

You’ll Never Send Things To Friends The Same Way Again | PushBullet Blog.

By  on November 05, 2013

You can now add and push to friends with Pushbullet, making Pushbullet the fastest and easiest way to share links, files, and more, directly with your friends.

Why is Pushbullet better than other ways of sharing? Because we’ve made it possible to send almost anything directly to a friend, without anything getting in the way. Here are a couple examples of why this is better than email:

  • By pushing a link directly to a friend instead of emailing it to them, they’ll instantly get a notification about the link and going to that link is as easy as tapping on the notification (as opposed to having to go and find it in their inbox). Cool.

  • Sending a picture or file to someone shouldn’t mean attaching it to a blank email. With Pushbullet, you simply send the picture or file right to them. They can then start downloading instantly by tapping the notification. So much easier.

This is awesome, how do I get started?

Once you’ve installed or updated the Pushbullet Android app, you’ll see this message on the top of the screen. Tapping on the message will take you to a list of your contacts, where you can select those you want to be able to push to. Tapping on the X icon will dismiss the message forever.

After selecting your friends and pressing the send icon, those you’ve highlighted will be added as your friends on Pushbullet. You’ll then be able to start pushing to them right away. Those that don’t already have a Pushbullet account will get an invitation to join.

You can also add friends by entering their email address in the Android app or here on pushbullet.com.

Once you’ve added someone as a friend, pushing to them is easy.

All of your friends on Pushbullet are shown as options that can be pushed to using the updated Android appChrome extension, and Firefox extension (or via pushbullet.com). This makes sending something to a friend incredibly simple—just select the person you want to send it to and away it goes.

What happens when I push something to a friend?

They’ll instantly receive a notification on all of their Pushbullet devices. This notification will be smart—links will open in their browser, addresses in Google Map, etc, just like the notifications for pushes to your own devices. Then, once they’ve dismissed the notification on any one of their devices, we automatically dismiss it on all of the rest. This means they’ll never be annoyed seeing the same notification multiple times.

What if I push something to someone who hasn’t signed up yet?

If the person you’ve pushed to doesn’t have a Pushbullet account, we resort to sending it to them as an email. They’ll be able to see whatever you’ve pushed them right from this emailwithout having to sign up first. This is important because it means you don’t have to worry about whether or not they have Pushbullet before you send them something–they’ll get it no matter what.

What if my friend has an iPhone?

We don’t have an iOS app right now but we are working on it. In the mean time, those using iOS can still install our Chrome extension to be able to send and receive pushes on their computer.

If you’re waiting for our iOS app and want to get updates as development progresses (and potentially help us test it before release), you can subscribe to updates here.

What comes next?

These new features are huge step forward in the evolution of Pushbullet. To see people start using us to share things with friends is incredibly exciting and we’re really looking forward to hearing what’s great about it and what we can make better. Our plan for the next couple weeks is to react as quickly as we can to feedback in order to improve this new component of Pushbullet.

Most-Used Smartphone App in 2013

Most-Used Smartphone App

Google Maps shown a huge response in delivering their service. They got the tittle of The Most-Used Smartphone App in quarter 2013 shown by Statista. According to data published by GlobalWebIndex, 54 percent of global smartphone owners used Google’s navigation app in the month preceding the survey. As per my earlier post about Google Maps, the Google Maps application has several function that is very useful for our daily life.

Google’s decision to develop an open source mobile operating system and give it away for free apparently pays off. Android’s market share in the smartphone market recently soared above 70 percent and since Android phones come preloaded with several Google apps, the search company controls a significant share of mobile web usage.

So, What’s your favorite apps?

 

Coach Carter Best Quotes

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. You playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”.

We should think about this, really!

24/7 Wall St.

educationThe kinds of jobs that don’t require a college degree probably hasn’t changed much in the last 30 or more years. What has changed is the number of those jobs now filled by college graduates.

According to study released today, about 48% of employed U.S. college grads hold jobs that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says require less than a 4-year degree. Of that total 11% of employed college graduates work in occupations that require more than a high-school diploma and 37% work at jobs that require no more than a high-school education.

Whereas in 1970 just 1% of taxi drivers and 2% of firefighters held 4-year degrees, more than 15% of those employed in both jobs now hold college degrees.

Not all colleges are created equal either. Graduates of elite private schools make more than do graduates of flagship state universities, who, in turn, earn more than graduates…
