Baby Boomers have been investing more and more in Facebook even as their children and grandchildren have been using it less, said Nicole Sherrod, Managing Director of Trading at TD Ameritrade. Sherrod added that the social media giant has moved up 5 positions on its list of most held stocks by Boomers. One stock which boasts multi-generational appeal is Apple.

This is an excellent statement. Admittedly, we are overloaded with bad news in Syria.

I know some think I'm being silly, but Sochi and other Olympic game sites lie abandoned and could be used to resettle. There are business opportunities here, not just endless humanitarian needs. #Syria  

Middle Eastern Studies degree from UT-Austin, smiles.

I have in the past been entertained by travel slideshows of friends picturing what they believe to be "poor" Arabs wearing traditional headdresses out in the middle of the desert (picturesque). But I always say, the person you have captured on film might be the owner of an oil company. In the Middle East, appearances are sometimes deceiving.

Idea: to the many "microloan" funders out there today - channel the money to Syrian refugees wanting to launch businesses in their new resettlement communities! You know who you are, smiles.

Youth & Jobs in Tanzania

Learned about this via NetSquared (our global tech club organizers group). They are seeking some help in Tanzania:

"250 TZS for Solar pump and Green house is a project campaign that desires to provide solution on youth unemployment through Agricultural sector in Tanzania. This campaign requests funds for acquiring Solar pump and Green house for developing the 3 acres training farm in Mvomero District Morogoro see campaign here http://oviag.blogspot.com , http://www.greenchangesforlenec.webs.com or https://www.facebook.com/pages/Local-Entrepreneurship-Network-and-Environmental-Conservation-LENEC/265836526851788?ref=hl"

"True beauty transcends beyond looks; it’s something you feel. Throughout the year, we’re highlighting women who shine inside and out. In light of their inspiring stories, we’re giving back to the nonprofits that have touched our hearts with their commitment to improving women’s lives. Every time you share a story, we will donate $1."

While I am not a client, this is a terrific idea. Had to share!
