Four Ways to Tell If Your 401(k) Plan is Being Mismanaged

Jan 23rd 2011 10:34PM What are the different asset classes? It would have been helpful if you had listed them all instead of just saying "and so on." Remember you are writing for the general public who want to learn about what is missing. Not listing what to specifically look for makes the article too vague.

Thank you.

Oct 16th 2010 8:44PM I couldn't agree more. PLEASE, no loud noise/music in public. If I want to hear your music, I will listen when I want to, not when you make me. I found this very rude.

'Lost' & 'Growing Pains' Mashup

Classics Refuted - The Onion's Picks for Much-Honored Flicks it's "Okay to Hate."

Jun 23rd 2006 4:22PM What is unavailable when viewing a movie at a later time than it's initial release is the impact it had as something new and different and focusing. This can be the type/special effects of the film (Star War's space opera) or the philosophical questions being raised (Clockwork Orange, Shawshank Redemption) or the tapping into the fears/hopes/dreams of the population (Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life). Since we are no longer in the same "space" that surrounded the film, our appreciation is diminished. The same thing occurs with any story-telling device. When I watch old movies, I try to imagine what the society that produced it was going through at the time that would make the film so popular. I often wonder what future generations will see/hear when they watch/listen to our current favorites. Even music is affectd by this phenomenon. It's interesting.
