  • Aquaculture .

It is anticipated that worldwide population will reach 9.6 billion people by 2050. As a result, food security is becoming a major issue. With a growing number of mouths to feed, we must find a way to produce more food with a limited amount of agricultural resources. What's the answer? Aquaculture. At least it's one of the answers. Aquaculture, also known as fish farming or aquafarming, is the practice of farming aquatic organisms such as fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants.…

  • Gold .

Last July I wrote an article, " 7 Reasons To Buy Gold Right Now," which outlines my reasons for purchasing gold (NYSEARCA:GLD). Before last summer (2015), I hadn't owned gold since 2012. But with gold nearing support at the $1100/oz level, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to, once again, own the yellow metal. As we all know, gold eventually fell through this support level, bottoming out at $1050/oz in December, 2015. I purchased gold just above $1100/oz. I wish…

  • Business . california . minimum wage . SB 3 .

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), California's largest labor union, has filed two initiatives in an attempt to raise minimum wage in California to $15 per hour. The first initiative, titled the Fair Wage Act of 2016, was proposed by the SEIU-UHW, the healthcare worker arm of the union. This initiative seeks to raise California’s minimum wage to $11 in 2017 and then gradually increase it a dollar per year until it reaches $15 in 2021. Once the minimum wage reaches $15, it…

Remember the Better Business Bureau (BBB)? (They're actually still around but not as relevant as in years past.) I remember the BBB. I remember, in my youth, thinking that if I saw a business with the BBB accreditation sticker on their window, it meant that the business was legitimate and better than its non-accredited competitors. I also remember thinking that, if ever I had a complaint about a business, I could contact the BBB and they would sort it out…

It is finally becoming common knowledge that the foods we eat contain far too much sugar. The history of sugar and its use in our foods in this country is long, but to provide a simple overview: - In the 1960s and 1970s, scientists began collecting evidence that foods with saturated fat could raise LDL cholesterol and, therefore, increase the risk of heart disease. - As a result, in 1976 Senator George McGovern called a hearing to raise attention to the…

I recently wrote an article, "7 Reasons To Buy Gold Right Now," which, along with providing a brief history of the metal, outlines my reasons for owning gold as a long term investment and my reasons for purchasing the commodity over the weekend. After having not owned gold since 2012, last weekend I purchased gold at around $1130/oz. Since my purchase, gold has dropped a few percentage points and is trading at $1085/oz (as of this writing). So, am I…

  • Gold .

I bought (physical) gold today. I haven’t purchased or traded gold in a while because the 2013 gold crash scared me. I got out. I didn’t want to be holding “falling knives”, as they say. So for the past two years I really haven’t paid much attention to gold. Then yesterday I took a look at the price of the yellow metal. It’s low. Real low. Say what you will about whether you think gold is going to continue to…

My wife and I and another business partner are opening a restaurant in downtown Chico. We plan to open early September and, in preparation, we recently put out a couple ads on Craigslist for front and back of house positions. Within the first week of posting the ads we received over 50 applications/resumes. Of course, it’s very encouraging to see such interest from job applicants. And now we have to sift through all those resumes and hope a few applicants…

Update: Megan published my comments. It was a simple misunderstanding as they landed in her spam. So definitely no harm, no foul. I leave my post below for anyone interested in the topic of GMO salmon. I thank you, Megan, for the opportunity to add input on your blog and I definitely appreciate the transparency. --- This topic deviates a bit from what I generally write about but I feel that I should put it out there for the sake of…

As shown on both daily and weekly charts below, most recently, the stock broke out above this prior resistance level in…
