stock talk

My son and I play at trading stocks ( getting more serious as $$ adds up) . Some tips we have used to make some cash.

The upper chart is half year for GOOG , and  the lower is  three (3) year range for GSOL. stock values

GOOG likes to double dip over 2-3 week period.

GSOL shows a dispersive function with price dip before its 4th quarter earnings report then a price jump immediately  after wards ( time period 3-4 weeks.)

special devotion of Pope Francis

Pope Francis does have a special devotion to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots. While studying in Germany in the 1980s, he discovered this devotion at the Church of St. Peter  Perlach in Augsburg. In the church, there is a painting from about 1700 that depicts Mary in heaven surrounded by angels. She holds a long ribbon and is untying a large knot, one of several on the ribbon.
This devotion had a profound impact on Pope Francis. As archbishop of Buenos Aires, he introduced and encouraged the devotion to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots. The devotion became so intensely popular throughout Argentina and Brazil that the British Guardian called it “a religious craze.”
