Get Commission Free Stock Trades with Robinhood

This is huge for those looking to get into trading with a smaller account. Normally–if you are trading with less than $2k–commissions will eat up your account and make it almost impossible to do anything except for buy-and-hold (that and the PDT rules). Without a desktop app, I don’t see it being a viable option for real day-trading, but could be a great tool for beginners looking to get their feet wet with doing a few trades a week.

Walter Mitty Preview

Awesome six minute preview of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Can’t decide if I want to see this or The Wolf of Wall Street on Christmas.

Humans Are Becoming More Carnivorous

An interesting study, which measures species “tophic levels” shows that humans have started to consume more meat, in general. By doing so, we also increase our negative impact on the environment. Read more at Scientific American.
