If I had to do it all over again
Are you ready to start today?
As most know by now, professional golfer Tiger Woods was arrested Monday morning for DUI (Driving While Under the Influence). Full video of the arrest can be seen at the end of this story. What has often been cut out of newscast videos of the incident is that one of the officers said that he smelled “some odor coming from you” after asking if Woods had been drinking. But Woods’ blew twice into an Intoxilyzer machine registering zero alcohol. It came out later that Woods may have been under the influence of legal prescription medication and not alcohol as the police officer had assumed and clearly lied about. If the officer did smell alcohol, then he needs retraining — perhaps at a bar.
Lying about smelling alcohol or marijuana is a common tactic used by police even though they do not smell those substances, in order to justify in their…

Writing for Reason, Eric Boehm has a story showing that “all of the above” may be the right answer.
But I Am an Engineer
At first it seems like a story about government greed.
When Mats Järlström’s wife got snagged by one of Oregon’s red light cameras in 2013, he challenged the ticket by questioning the timing of the yellow lights at intersections where cameras had been installed. Since then, his research into red light cameras has earned him attention in local and national media – in 2014, he presented his evidence on an episode of “60 Minutes”…on how too-short yellow lights were making money for the state by putting the public’s safety at risk.”

UPDATE May 25, 2017:
So, we thought we’d check in to see how the portfolio was doing. The portfolio was posted on August 2015 and as of today, it has risen 53.3% while the DOW has risen by only 20.62% and the S&P by 15.47%. Our best-performing stocks have been Paypal and NVR; while the one outlier is owning a small amount of Bitcoin (in this example, the NYSE Bitcoin Index) which has risen well over 1,000% during our timeframe. Too bad we didn’t devote more money toward it. Bitcoin was a relatively small portion of the portfolio, but now it has become the single largest part of the portfolio. Even without the Bitcoin phenomena, the portfolio still would have performed well, especially for an “invest and forget it”/low-risk type strategy.
