    I have some savings I want to invest, I don’t know anything at all about
    the stock market, zero. I have tried reading a little, but understand much
    less. I don’t want to buy any prepackaged portfolio, but rather get some
    ‘safer’ ETFs. I don’t understand any of the jargon, could someone explain
    to me as if I’m 5, what I should do step by step? Thanks.?

    This is an interesting concept for a video, but you guys don’t do a very
    good job of explaining this stuff at all. I’m of the opinion that if you
    can’t explain something well enough that a child can understand it, then
    you don’t understand it very well yourself. And if you think it’s just not
    possible to teach kids concepts like this, I taught my daughter about
    things like relativity, quantum mechanics, particle physics and chemistry
    before she even went into kindergarten, and she understood them just fine.
    And in case you think it’s just unique to my daughter, I was able to teach
    my nieces of the same age those same concepts I taught my daughter.?

    For marketers, Reddit has a lot of things going for it: most notably, an
    audience that’s both young and huge. Last month, Reddit drew 71 million
    unique visitors who viewed 4.8 billion pages. Their big challenge, however,
    is to find a way to make money from that audience without driving it away.

    I like this idea but unfortunately this vid isn’t correct. Only the IPO
    money goes to the company. If people panicked and sold off their shares it
    would have zero effect on the company’s financial health as those shares
    are being traded in a secondary market, shares are not sold back to the

    Alright champ, what ever makes you sleep at night. You pay for the name,
    not the education that’s why private schools have a higher acceptance rate
    because they are more biased towards the word private. Also teachers in
    private schools have to be registered teachers so where do they get their
    own education? Teachers college just like every other teacher in public
    school, sorry champ.

    I get your point, but I also see a lot of adults not understand kid humor
    or behavior, and simply diagnose it as ADD when they become parents. That’s
    just how some kids are, and it’s all part of the fun of being a child, even
    if it does make your life a little bit tougher. I’m not sure what you mean
    by documentation though. Autocorrect mistake? If you mean something like
    sensory information, then I totally agree with you.

    Okay. I realize this might be a little hard to follow for a victim of the
    forced confinement “schooling”/conditioning system to follow, but the point
    here is: High placement rates from prep schools are well known, but what is
    NOT well known is the HIGHER rate of Ivy league placements from HOME
    school. The dirty secret of the Ivy league is not anything that is offered
    in the classroom, It’s that they preselect for preexisting success traits.
    They know their alums will go on to success [cont.]

    Really, if “public schooling” taught communication skills and good manners,
    then the “public” would not be dispossessed of these skills. Public
    schooling teaches conformity and it’s fruits can be seen all over this
    comment section. Google “Against School John Taylor Gatto Harper’s
    magazine” Ironically the current education model is Prussian (German)
    Perhaps the Prussians were too well trained in their polite communication
    to interrupt ******.
