Major U.S. Stock indexes zoom back to record highs:
NE YORK (AP) – Major U.S. stock indexes are back at record highs after a turbulent month.
Stocks rallied in the U.S. and overseas after Japan’s central bank surprised investors with a new round of economic stimulus. Just two weeks ago the U.S. market had its biggest slump in two years.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 194 points, or 1.1 percent, to close at an all-time high of 17,390 Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 reached its own record, climbing 23 points, or 1.2 percent, to 2,017.
The Nasdaq rose 64 points, or 1.4 percent, to 4,630.
Japan’s benchmark index soared 5 percent to its highest level since 2007.
Friday, the 31st of October, 2014 is the 304th day in 2014 and in the 44th calendar week.
Halloween or All Hallows Eve
October 31, 2014 in the World
Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints, but is today largely a secular celebration. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.
The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Eve…

True or False: You don’t go on Facebook anymore, because it’s such a drag not being able to talk about your private jet’s new upholstery. After all, a few of your old friends post regularly about student debt and (gasp) mortgage payments, and it’ll make you look like an insensitive prick.
If you answered True, this new social network called Netropolitan hopes you’ll be willing to pony up a whopping $9,000 up front to rub virtual elbows with the equally rich. Netropolitan’s website describes it as “an online country club for people with more money than time” and is open to anyone over 21 with cash to throw around. There’s no need to add friends, since you can see everyone else’s post once you get it, but you can form groups around common interests (which, by the way, you can also do on Facebook for free).
This new social network for the elite was created by James Touchi-Peters, a former conductor of the Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra, because he “saw a need for an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash,” according to CNN. He promises the website will show no ads and will offer a round-the-clock tech support to help you navigate the website. Netropolitan’s still in its very early stages, but if it lasts, you’ll have to pay a hefty $3,000 more per year to be able to stay.
If the website’s WordPress backend or .info TLD don’t suit your taste, though, you can always choose from the other exclusive social networks. There’s ASmallWorld, which was once described as the “MySpace for millionaires” and Affluence.org, which you can join for free if you can prove a $3 million net worth. Finally, there’s Topcom, which is like Facebook, Twitter and Skype combined, but only for the top 200 world leaders.

You don’t have to wait for a perfect day to take advantage, by taking advantage of the day you make it perfect.
I don’t get 10 out of 10 everyday, some days I have fallen below average. However, I still do my very best to take advantage of each day. Believe me you can too. To take advantage of your day you cannot complain and as Maya Angelo said, “What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.”
I don’t know about you, but I have no time to complain. In fact, complaining is a waste of time and energy. Let’s take advantage of each day even when we don’t score “A’s”.
No matter how much I was able to get done yesterday, with today comes a clean slate and the…
