Officials plucked human remains from the Mississippi River in Minneapolis over the weekend, and some are questioning whether this latest discovery has anything to do with the Adam Johnson case. 

A few weeks ago, segments of the man’s dismembered body were located mere blocks away from this latest gruesome find on July 4th. It remains unclear how that investigation may or may not be linked to these remains. 

“We have an item removed from the water,” a police spokesperson said. 

So far, authorities have been pretty vague when it comes to details surrounding the discovery, but this case does feature some unusual circumstances. 

The medical examiner is slated to share more when the time feels right, officers said.

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.

Popular Reddit trading group WallStreetBets goes private

Reddit group r/WallStreetBets (WSB) has officially closed its doors and is now a private-only community. 

WallStreetBets is the group that initiated the mega GameStop Corp short squeeze at the end of January. They managed to drive the price of GameStop to over $400 while causing massive damage to hedge funds that shorted it, such as Melvin Capital.

WSB stood together while brokerages like Robinhood (which recently filed for an IPO) banned buying “meme stocks” and driving fear in the market. Coining the phrase “Diamond Hands,” the group has managed to rally together all retail traders who took up trading during last year’s lockdown.

More recently, the group had pushed AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc to over $70 in the middle of June.

Before this shutdown, WallStreetBets had over 10 million members.

Now the question is: where will retail traders flock to now?

As President Joe Biden welcomed professional baseball players to the White House on Monday, he made a claim about hitting a ball 368 feet that was later proved false.

He began his remarks by flattering his visitors — the Los Angeles Dodgers, who won the 2020 World Series. 

“Not only does Dodger Stadium host world champions,” Biden said. “It helps save lives and strengthen our democracy as well.”

But then he swiftly made the moment about himself, by regaling onlookers with a pretty far-fetched tale. 

“… We have a congressional baseball game every year,” he said. “… I played… and I hit one off the right-centerfield wall. It bounced off the wall. I think it’s 368 or — I don’t know what is exactly now — but off the wall.”

This elaborate story was later proved false. But how?

This is how you can set a more realistic budget that you can actually live with

If you have little or no savings, that makes it hard to handle emergencies — and I don’t need to tell you that life is full of curveballs. 

When life gives you lemons, it’s a little hard to make lemonade when you don’t have the time, tools, or money. But budgeting can help with all of that. The problem is, many people set themselves up for failure by giving themselves unrealistic goals and standards. 

Here’s how to set up a realistic budget that works for your life.

Office organizational hacks for the best productivity this year

What if I told you that you could do something today that would boost your effectiveness, reduce your daily stress, and maybe even set you up for a nice little promotion? Would it surprise you if I told you the task was organizing your environment?

An organized work environment has a lot more than just visual appeal. For starters, DIY office organization has been shown to reduce stress.

The appearance of clutter signals to your brain that there’s extra work to do. When your brain feels overwhelmed by all this (actual and perceived) work, it triggers a stress response. Organizing your workspace reduces the frequency of that stress response and gives you a feeling of control.

Plus, being organized will help you become more efficient.. Searching for files in a disorganized workstation wastes time and renders you less effective. Suppose your goal is to move up the ranks. In that case, there’s evidence to suggest that clutter decreases your chances of getting that next promotion, both by boosting your effectiveness and by creating a positive impression of your work habits with higher-ups.
