The average price rose from $78,923 last year to $89,913 this year, largely on the strength of Coolmore’s big buy and a couple of other million-dollar babies. But the median increased only from $47,000 to $48,000; it had been $45,000 in 2014 and 2015. As any statistician knows, the median is a more meaningful number, since the average can be affected in any year by the presence or absence of just a few high-end purchases.
Erzulie Freda is probably the most popular of all the Lwas, both in New Orleans Voodoo as well as Haitian Vodou. She is the goddess” people view as the most beautiful and the one who can help with love and romance. Her colors are pretty pinks and white, her Catholic syncretic Saint is a beautiful image – Our Lady of Sorrows (Mater Dolorosa) – and let’s face it, people like attractive people, places and things. And, they like the deities they worship to be attractive, too.
Because nearly 90% of the money bet on racing is bet off-track, the net takeout retained by a track that actually stages racing tends to be lower than the handle retained by the ADW bet-takers, who pay only a fraction of that takeout to the sending track. For example, CDI’s live tracks reported only a net profit margin, or takeout, of 10.1% in 2016, while Twin Spires reported a margin of 18.4% on its handle. If this is true across the industry, then either (a) there’s room for substantial takeout reductions, since ADW margins are way too high, or (b) the tracks that actually put on racing should increase their fees to the simulcast outlets. Or both.
Everyone of us is different; different gifting, different experiences, different calling. Who we are is not to be compartmentalized. Personally, I am a father, husband, business owner, team leader, basketball coach, mentor, and lover of Jesus, wherever I am and whatever I am doing. I may be coaching the basketball team in the evening, but I am still a business owner. When I am at work, I am still a father. I am not any less me” when I’m answering work emails nor am I any more me” when I am enjoying supper with my family at home.
C-cubed eventually went bankrupt, so Bill Gates and his friends began hanging around the computer center at the University of Washington. Before long, they latched onto an outfit called ISI (Information Sciences Inc.) which agreed to let them have free computer time in exchange for working on a piece of software that could be used to automate company payrolls. In one 7-month period in 1971, Bill Gates and his cohorts ran up 1,575 hours of computer time on the ISI mainframe, which average out to 8 hours a day, 7 hours a week.
The process involves using your smart phone to scan barcodes on items you find at retail stores to see, in real time, if you’ve found an item that would be profitable to re-sell. If you love treasure hunting, you’ll love using this method. I’m reading this book and loving it. I got really excited about the possibilities and I think you will, too. Highly recommended!
