BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
Miami Beach, Florida, has extended emergency restrictions because of out-of-control spring break crowds. Locals believe the masses are made up of more than just college students. An 8 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew has been put in place for the city’s entertainment district (the exception being food delivery services). The curfew rules began on Saturday and extended until the end of the month, with the possibility of further extension.
Since February, the city has made over 1,000 arrests, about half of them involving out-of-state-residents, and the influx has led to increasing crowd-control issues. The types of crowds that have descended on the popular South Florida destination are not made up of the regular college-age students officials are used to.
City Manager Raul Aguila believes that Florida’s lax pandemic rules have encouraged people from outside the state to visit. “This is a spring break like no other” Miami Beach had imposed a midnight curfew, and alcohol on the beach is forbidden. Tourists were getting cellphone messages warning, “Vacation responsibly or be arrested.”

MONDAY MORNING MARKETS
After last week’s losses, stock futures were a mixed bag early this morning, with futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling 65 points, futures on the S&P 500 remaining steady, and futures tied to the Nasdaq-100 increasing 0.8%. Last week, the Nasdaq Composite and the S&P 500 fell 0.8%, while the Dow slipped 0.5%.
This morning, the 10-year Treasury yield settled down to 1.68% after last week it soared to a point not seen in 14 months.
The stock market is, however, tracking for gains over several years, said Darrell Cronk of Wells Fargo’s Wealth and Investment Management: “If you went down the list and started putting boxes of check-check-check-check, you would look at this in a vacuum … and say it looks like an early recovery sycle that’s roughly a year in that probably has a number of years to run.”

In addition to protecting your cardiovascular health, the diet is also known for reducing stress and stress-related illness.

YOUR EDUCATION STATION
Nearly two dozen elected officials, including San Francisco Mayor London Breed, are urging the vice president of the San Francisco Board of Education to step down after a series of offensive tweets.
In a Medium post, Collins said the tweets were taken “out of context” and apologized but did not offer to step down.
While I feel a lot of people have taken to finding something to be angry about, I have to agree with the sentiments of those bringing the tweets to light.
Her tweets did not move the conversation further, but instead were racist and problematic.

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
This story is like the perfect storm. When Bernie Sanders speaks, his minions listen. And when Elon Musk speaks, the markets move. So, when the two of them get into a beef with one another, just about anything can happen.
Last week, Bernie called Musk and Bezos out for their wealth. “That level of greed and inequality is not only immoral. It is unsustainable.”
But Musk isn’t having it. While Bernie may not like the way he’s spending his cash, Elon has always had a better future for humanity at large at the forefront of his vision.
“I am accumulating resources to help make life multiplanetary & extend the light of consciousness to the stars,” Musk said on Twitter.
However, all of that extension of consciousness aside, I sure hope that Elon used his crystal ball to plan on paying a lot more in taxes this year and beyond.
