The Greek soap opera continued, but investors took some encouragement in the hope that a deal will be soon reached. Bond yields backed up on reduced fear about Europe and on reduced odds of further Fed asset purchases.

The January 24-25 Fed policy meeting minutes showed only “a few” officials leaning toward QE3, although others thought such action would be warranted if “the economy lost momentum or if inflation seemed likely to remain below the (2%) inflation mandate over the medium term.” Fed officials continued to see an unusually high level of uncertainty surrounding the outlooks for growth and unemployment.

The Consumer Price Index rose 0.2% in January (+2.9% year-over-year), up 0.2% ex-food & energy (+2.3% year-over-year).

We Are Made of Dreams and Bones

 

TeachersDavid Mallet is a folk singer and song writer whose name you may or may not know. Originally from Maine, he lived in Nashville for many years but returned to his home state in 1997.

When educating a child, one has to always keep in mind the dual side of our existence on this planet. It’s not uncommon when you are working diligently on some concept to be interrupted by a kindergartener or first grader who claims dramatically that he is bleeding and be shown a pinprick at the end of a tiny finger. The intellect and physical life of a child are always interconnected. «Read the rest of this article»
