I am new here and I am already enjoying reading. Hopefully I will be able to contribute something meaningful in the future

yes good traders should naturally not contribute something meaningful to others, they should mislead competitors and put out fake info and bad models! or alternatively write on totally different topics than trading and quant finance.

  1. I have been browsing online for over 4 hours today, but I haven’t found any interesting article like yours. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers write good articles like what you have done, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

"I discovered when I started making money that I didn't really need it." -- Avicii
I find the converse and inverse of this quote apply for much of the time but the contrapositive applies all of the time.
How do I verify this convoluted text" Do I read from right to left or is it  just NOT ("I discovered when I started making money that I didn't really need it." )
What's a contra?

In fairness, no commas. It proves you are NOT {Dutch, Italian, French}.
Avicii:  If I make money, then I don't need it.
Converse Avicii:  If I don't need money, then I make it
Inverse Avicii: If I don't make money, then I need it.
Contrapositive Avicii:  If I need money, then I don't make it

What, you mean, that, in due consideration of the facts, and, not entirely parenthetically speaking, you don't like kommas?

I'm with Joyce on this one, but would phrase it differently
- James Joyce preferred dashes to quotation marks for aesthetic reasons. He even went so far as to call quotation marks "perverted commas".
(i like dash punctiation)

As we speak we are reverse engineering a  blurb by someone with the commaitis syndrome.

Your software must do a lot of accidental subtraction then.

It beats writing "B". - 'B' works fine.

The percentage of men who are not working, nor looking for work, has been rising for decades, writes economist Gregory Mankiw in The New York Times. While 14% of men were out of the labor force in 1950, today that number is 31%. Women, by contrast, have seen labor force participation rise sharply; the number of women out of the labor force has dropped from 66% in 1950 to 43% today. The decline among men is partly attributable to spending more time in school and living longer, but a recent study also found men with lower education levels participate less in the labor force because of technological forces and global trade. "One step in the right direction would be to expand opportunity by increasing educational attainment and skills training," writes Mankiw, acknowledging that these measures require political will and funding.

Do you realize there are only seven colors of the rainbow? Only seven. Look what Michelangelo did with those seven colors! There’s only seven musical notes. Look what Beethoven did with those seven notes! There’s only 10 numbers. Look what Bernie Madoff did with those 10 numbers.

Well we got no class
And we got no principles
And we got no innocence
We can't even think of a word that rhymes

International Journal of Applied & Exprimental Mathematics,  3: IJAEM-125
"Dirac Quantum Bra-Ket Notation in Experimental Mathematics: Observer-Operators in the 4-Stage Cycle of Creative Consciousness & Cognition
Ernest Rossi*, Kathryn Rossi
PDF

"We propose an integrated quantum field theory (QFT) of physics,biology and psychology in new applications of experimental mathematics for optimizing health and wellness in the current evolution of psychotherapy. Our unified quantum field theory brings together a variety of interdisciplinary fields ranging from stress reduction, psychosomatics, psychoneuroimmunology, meditation and mind-body medicine to the psychobiology of optimizing human performance, problem solving and creativity. Paul Dirac’s transformational equation set from early quantum dynamics to the classical calculus of variations is utilized as an experimental mathematical bridge in Box 1 to illustrate how the quantum qualia of human experience during activity-dependent gene expression, brain plasticity and new consciousness may be conceptualized. This new application of Dirac’s [1] original quantum formulations [2, 3] is consistent with Penrose (2004), Wilczek [4, 5] and Carroll’s [5] insights into “The essence of the Core Theory – the laws of physics underlying everyday life – expressed in a single mathematical equation.” We propose how the highly sensitive quantum qualia of problematic dissociations during Stage 2 of the 4-Stage Creative Cycle are source of quantum level conflicts between Real and Grassmann numbers that can lead to war, discord, inappropriate competition, hate crimes, terrorism and other stress related psychosocial pathologies that can be resolved in Stages 3 and 4 of therapeutic consciousness and cognition. Quantum Bayesian concepts of the novel observer/operator have insightful applications in counseling, psychotherapy, translational medicine and virtually all the mind/body therapies. We conclude with clinical case illustrations of how innovative psychological quantum field theory applications of Dirac’s Bra-Ket experimental mathematical notation of how the quantum qualia of the human observer/operator in subjective experience can be a causal agent in facilitating problem solving on the objective molecular/genomic level."

""If you can't communicate, it's like winking at a girl in the dark -- nothing happens. You can have all the brainpower in the world, but you have to be able to transmit it," Buffett continues

is he talking about in Norwegian or Englishe ?
