Both Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are eager to colonize outer space. But is that just because they’re looking for somewhere where human rights don’t hold the same sway?

That’s what a growing number of people are starting to think. 

“The rich have also found ways to protect themselves from the rest of humanity—in fortified castles, on hillsides safely above smoke and sewage, in grand mansions far from the madding crowds.”

Musk’s SpaceX just won a $2.9 billion NASA contract to land astronauts on the moon, beating out Bezos.

Now, let’s be clear – the money isn’t a big deal for either of them. Musk is worth $179.7 billion. Bezos, $197.8 billion. Together, that’s almost as much as the bottom 40 percent of Americans combined.

Both are racing to the moon right now, but that’s just a stepping-stone. 

Here’s what the universe might look like if they get their way.

Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)
But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.
“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”

And his No. 1 stock picks across his various research services have been phenomenal.
In 2017, he recommended Plug Power. It gained 1142% in 3.5 years.
In June 2018, he recommended Tandem Diabetes. It’s currently up 520% and still climbing.  
In December 2019, he recommended Enphase Energy. It gained 638% in 1 year. 
And in March of last year, he recommended Carvana. It’s currently up 877% and still climbing.
But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

This is it: the busiest week of earnings season

The last week of April will be extremely busy for markets with a third of the S&P 500 reporting earnings, a Federal Reserve meeting, and new spending and tax proposals from the White House.

Big Tech is a highlight of the earnings calendar, with Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet all releasing results.

The Fed is not expected to take any action, but economists expect it to defend its policy to let inflation run hot.

There is some key data including first-quarter gross domestic product and the Fed’s favorite inflation measure: the personal consumption expenditures deflator.

Watch as rescuers attempt to save a man from a flood with an excavator

A still from the video

A man failed to heed the “turn around, don’t drown” advice and attempted to drive across a river during a flood. His vehicle was unfortunately swept away and he was left in a life or death situation. 

When the vehicle was swept away, it thankfully became stuck on some rocks and debris, instead of being totally consumed by the raging water and sent downstream. The man was able to crawl out of the vehicle and onto the back of his SUV.

The water continued to pummel the vehicle and rage around him. It was too dangerous for him to make it to dry land, and the current was too swift and strong for rescuers to swim or boat over to him. That’s when rescuers got creative – they decided to use a heavy excavator to attempt to rescue the man.  

So, where did this crazy situation unfold and was the rescue attempt a success?

Trade school vs. college: here are the pros and cons

When it comes to furthering your education, it’s essential to think about what type of career training will work best for you. For the past several decades, the push has been toward driving graduating high school students toward traditional colleges and universities. That’s left a big hole in the workforce, with employers experiencing difficulty attracting highly skilled blue-collar workers.

Now, with the U.S. facing a significant shortage of skilled tradesmen and women, it’s time to take another look at the reasons to consider a trade school instead of college.

If your credit score isn’t where you want it to be, you might be looking at all kinds of options. One thing that comes up often in this situation is the idea of a credit-builder loan.

Credit unions and some banks offer credit-builder loans. They work differently than traditional personal loans. With a traditional loan, you get the money up front from a lender after you’ve been approved to borrow. Once you have the money, then you start making monthly payments to your lender. 

So what is a credit-builder loan, and how can it improve your credit score?
