Deep Blue Publications Group LLC: How Retirement Funds Could Turn On You

Dec 19, 2014

Status: New

One of the biggest dilemmas people face today is what financial experts like to call the "variation of outcomes". In a more practical sense, it would mean the difference between those students who were on the top 10 during your high school, for example: 5 made it into Ivy League schools, 3 got into other universities, one went to work and the other took a break. In short, even in a supposed set of people, you can never predict what will happen in the future.   And when it comes to retirement investments, people tend to have similar strategies on withdrawal that consequently points to various outcomes. Case in point: how investors could have survived the peak of the 90s bull market which was viewed as one of the worst times to start withdrawing.   For example, you had 1 million USD invested by the end of 1999 and then decided to withdraw a fix rate of 5% (50,000 USD) every year. Five percent turns out to be a sustainable enough withdrawal rate, even with the inflation taken into account according to Deep Blue Publications Group LLC planners. (Note:  There really is no recommended sustainable percentage of withdrawals as brokers themselves admit they get antsy when clients begin to take more than 6% annually.)   Naturally, the outcome will be widely different depending on one's timing and specific investment. Then what's the lesson learned from that period of 2 consecutive bear markets?   * Do not withdraw from stock funds during a bear market for this will significantly increase your losses. Besides, once the fund rebounded, your withdrawals will decrease in value.   * Most popular funds of the month are not always recommended. They could have been overpriced and overstuffed which is perhaps why it had a supposed 'good' performance during previous quarters.   * Don't bet all your shares during retirement especially if you retire at the start of a multi-year bear market.   It does make a great difference if your investments are not that closely related with stocks as a safeguard for any unexpected outcome. The usual choice in making a diverse portfolio today is bonds but this could also mean you'll get hit once the interest rates increase. Consider foreign bonds instead, or get into real estate and gold, all of which are not that related with stocks.   In the end, the amount you withdraw at a given year is still based on a number of factors such as life expectancy, existing loans and lifestyle. Just make sure you avoid a wide "variation of outcomes" from your investments

Problem:  It took me over 1.5hrs to find out what TZ Series SonicWall supports Geo-IP filtering.Following sites do not show this security service and/or talk about it:1) http://www.sonicwall.com/us/en/products/TZ-Series.html2) http://marketing.sonicwall.com/documents/sonicwall-tz-series-datasheet-24525.pdf3) http://www.sonicwall.com/us/en/products/TZ-Series.html#tab=compareaI finally found it at: http://www.sonicwall.com/downloads/SonicOS_5.8.1.0_Release_Notes.pdfWhy the GEO-IP filter service option isn't shown link #3 is beyond me. All the documents I've read imply that SonicOS 5.8.1 has it included. Not true. It's only in the TZ210 series or NSA/NSA-E series.   IDEA:  Add GEO-IP Filtering Option on the COMPARE list.

We here at TexaSEO are big on typing, keyboards, and getting the job done - right! Might we suggest a keyboard for the "elite"!How about we build a keyboard that is mechanical, used topre key switches - silented for phone conversations, used a 55gram sensitivity with 2mm travel -  and used the HHKB PRO 2 layout featuring 60% less keys with a 60 key modified US ANSI layout. Call them: "Elite Dell Keyboards" - not for the weak; or faint of heart.More on the HHKB and TOPRE key switches: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Hacking_Keyboard

I like your site. I make great use of the favorites page (with respect to hardware ordering). What would be even better is if you would let the customer add their own "standard configurations" to the site. With business trends changing spo rapidly these days it is really a time savere to be able to go to th site and just click on what I need and then just modify the quantity.

A Computer for Network, Communication and other Laboratories.

Dell,Space is more important in any laboratory because of the presence of many equipments.   If the number of equipments are minimum it will be easy to do a task in a laboratory.   For example in testing software on a microprocessor Printed Circuit Board, an emulator for the processor, a powerful computer and a dumb terminal or monitor  for user interface, are commonly needed.   Typically the software is developed and compiled on a powerful computer.   The dubugging info.  from the emulator is fed to a screen through ethernet port.   The user interface of the product being tested is done on another screen through COM port.   So, there is a need for more than one screen for testing of the microprocessor based hardware product. This is a common scene in any software-hardware testing workplace.   In  places like networking laboratory, labs that develop electronic products, labs that develop software products this computer shown in the following figure may be useful.   The software can be compiled on a screen, while debug data from emulator can be fed to another screen and another screen can be used as user interface console for the product that is being tested.   The operating system must support screen management feature for this to work.    This computer idea  is very similar to the Tektronix measurement instrument that is shown below: By taking the requirement inputs from the people working at various labs a better lab-computer product can be made. - voxmu
