There Was a Winner in Thursday’s Night’s Debate

It’s Friday and I’m simply taking in the market action. I did have a chance to watch the vast majority of the Trump-Biden debate Thursday night. I will say this one came across much better than the last.

There was no clear-cut winner for me, but fossil-fuels will be a clear loser over the next four years if we see a Blue Wave. The opposite can be said for clean energy and green tech. I do believe green will win either way, but old school energy is the wildcard post-election.

That doesn’t take energy off the table for me as a trade. If anything, it has me watching it closely. If we don’t see weakness, then it would reinforce the idea a reversal is in the works. However, we are seeing some weakness Friday in the sector. The overall market has turned red as the possibility of a stimulus bill

Trump reportedly outscored Biden on the topics of climate change, race relations in America, national security, leadership, and healthcare.

The methodology tracks what the company calls “graded performances on a scale of 0-10 (10 being best) based on dimensions of vocal delivery (meaning how professional and polished they sound, as following known best practices for speakers) and also predicts how a typical audience would perceive the speakers by using AI models that were trained on millions of data points on human perception of voice.”

“Keep in mind that our

After Trump-Biden debate, Internet declares moderator Kristen Welker the real winner

One question garnering praise for Welker is one that appeared to be directed to all White Americans.

NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker is being praised today for her calm, able performance moderating the final presidential debate last night in Nashville. 

Welker, 44, was the only person of color chosen to moderate a debate during this presidential election cycle. She was tasked with helping ensure a smoother event than the candidates’ first one-on-one exchange on Sept. 29, which saw Fox News’ Chris Wallace largely lose control while both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden shouted and interrupted each other.

The $2m Jackpot Winner Denied By ‘Software Error’ Heads To Court

A man who won $2m from a British bookmaker, only to be denied his winnings because of a “software error”, is taking his case to Britain’s High Court.

Andy Green won £1.7m ($2m) from bookmaker Betfred while playing a blackjack game on his smartphone. His account was credited with £1,722,923.54, but when he attempted to withdraw the winnings, the request was declined, according to a report from the BBC.

Mr Green was then called by a director of the bookmaking firm, who claimed there had been a “software error” and that the company was rejecting the claim.

Betfred reportedly offered Mr Green £30,000 ($38,000) as a token of “goodwill”, as long as he agreed to a non-disclosure agreement, later upping that offer to £60,000 ($72,000). Mr Green refused both offers and is now suing Betfred for £2 million ($2.6
