Shortly after 1 p.m. on Wednesday, hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the Capitol’s perimeter. After ninety minutes of grappling with officers in full riot gear, demonstrators got into the building, and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Police evacuated the House floor. 

An armed standoff took place at the House front doors. One woman is dead after being shot on the Capitol grounds. Multiple officers have been injured. This display of insurrection was the first time the US Capitol had been overrun since the British attacked and burned the building in August of 1814. 

The building was secured around 5:40 p.m.  The Capitol is once more secured.

What’s happening in the markets right now?

Despite yesterday’s chaos in the Capitol, U.S. stock futures this morning traded on a positive note, with all three major averages increasing. 

Even as protestors interrupted the joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College results yesterday, the market appeared relatively unfazed. 

“I think the reason the markets aren’t too flummoxed is it’s not going to change the transition of power,” said Fundstrat Global Advisors Co-Founder Tom Lee. 

Investors were also digesting the possibility of a Democrat-controlled Congress, as both Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were projected to win the Senate seats in Georgia’s runoff elections. 

And the government will release its latest look at jobless claims this morning. Economists expect that the number of people filing for unemployment benefits will increase to 815,000 compared to 787,000 the week earlier.

We’ve all heard about self-worth, but what exactly is self-value? Well, self-value is more behavioral than emotional, more about how you act toward what you value, including yourself than how you feel about yourself compared to others.

To value something goes beyond considering it as important; you also appreciate its qualities while investing time, energy, effort, and sacrifice in its nurturing or maintenance. If you value an old vase, you focus on the beauty of its design rather than the chips and cracks in the porcelain.

People often mix up self-value and self-esteem. The difference between the two is that those with high self-value will necessarily treat others with a sense of respect and worth. That’s why it’s essential to boost your self-value as soon as possible, and this is how!

Woodstock damages lead to a lawsuit from farmers

When you think of Woodstock, you probably think of peace, free love and happiness. All mixed together with a little mud and “freeing your mind.”

But when neighboring farmers saw the damage done to their fields after the Woodstock music festival, they weren’t feeling very peaceful at all.

Max Yasgur was hardly your typical Upstate New York dairy farmer. But he was the man who ultimately decided to “let” his land for the event. And he didn’t do it for free.

In fact, he raked in some pretty respectable fees. 

But the lawsuit neighboring farmers would launch on this day back in 1970 definitely put a dent in those profits…
