Re: virus protection..?

Mike B.
 


If you're talking about Windows 10, you should have it installed by default.  If I'm not mistaken, if you're running a different antivirus program, and you disable it, Windows Defender is supposed to start up after rebooting but, I'm not 100% sure about this.  Also, I'm not sure in which version of Windows 10 but, Microsoft changed Defender's name to Windows Security.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I was trying to use the stocks app off the iPhone, guess I forgot that freedom changed it’s name woe. Maybe that was why I was not having luck finding what I wanted off google. I seem to remember as high school students, our class was given grant money or something. We were allowed to use the money to invest in the market and the money we made funding school projects. I think we made 25 thousand dollars from this project. I always wondered what happen to this now as I think it was just befor the tec bubble  in 2000! Cheers, Thank everyone for their info, always like to learn something knew! Heather

Enter, and Arrow down to Skip to topic, or whatever it is, hit Enter. Most of the time, you will get to something like Market Summary. Arrow down to get the information.

Re: question why is something that is a non proffit still making money?

Steve Matzura
 

LOL, non-profit doesn't mean they don't have bills to pay and need money to do that.Non-profit simply means that at the end of the year, their account ledger can't be in the plus column. They either have to break even or lose money to maintain that NP status. It's perfectly legitimate for NP's to make money. I've worked for several over the years part-time and been paid quite well for my services thereto.

Hi all,
I was able to add this email address to my profile on Facebook, but

get sent to this address? I saw that there's a link to remove this address from

using mbasic.facebook.com, the latest Edge, the latest Jaws 2021, and Windows 10

Here's some advice from someone who has been investing in the stock market for 35 years. Forget about hot tips, hot sectors and frequent trading. You will lose your shirt. Unless you have money to burn, you need to be very careful how you invest it. I discovered the hard way that the only way to consistently make money in the stock market is to buy and hold index mutual funds or exchange traded funds with low annual operating costs for the long run, and be patient. You will never outperform the overall market, but you will never underperform it, either, in bad times, and you will minimize your downside market risk. Over time, your assets will grow surely but steadily. Schwab, Fidelity and Vanguard all offer low-cost S&P 500 and Total stock market index funds. Never allocate more than 10% or 15% of your money to risky or speculative investments such as IPO's, hot tech stoks or fast-growing companies with no consistent track records. If you are a BARD patron, I suggest downloading Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine every month to get investing ideas from respected market analysts and financial experts.

I have some friends, and their church had something like $300,000, so for tax preservation, they had to invest. I would have given it to missions, but they got new carpeting for all of the church, which, I guess was OK, because probably eventually they'd have to do that.

Non-profits can and do make money to pursue their goals and pay employees. However, any additional profit must be re-invested into the organization. To ensure that re-investment is taking place, there are generally additional accountability and transparency requirements, the specifics of which will depend on the countries where they're registered.

more about it.  How do you intend to invest?  It won't make any difference
if you buy stock in a company, assuming the stock is fully purchased.  You
are buyng stock from another holder and no money is raised in that way by
the company.  The stocck continues to trade because when companies want to
issue new stock to raise more money, the new stock has a value, whatever the

value of the old stock is at the time of issue.  If there are other wways of

investing in such companies, I am not aware of them.

I can't tell you what methods may raise more money for any specific company.

I can tell you that if you want to help a company that depends a good deal
on contributions, you can contribute to NVDA.  It isn't investing, it’s a
contribution.

As far as searching with Google, the site, type your search in the edit
field and press enter.  Then, after a short pause, start moving through the

page using h for heading.  All results are displayed by heading.

Sighted people search constantly and they often use an actual site
interface.  If blind people don't know how to search, they are putting
themselves at a significant information disadvantage.  I'm not saying that
as criticism of you, I'm saying it because it may encourage more people to
try searching.

Despite what you may have heard about complexities of searching, just type
what you want to know.  You can use full sentences or phrases.  Most
snowfall in Chicago for example, or what is the most snowfall in Chicago
history, I doubt there is any difference or any significant difference in
the results. I Want To Hold Your Hand lyrics is an example of finding lyrics

for words to a song.  Name of book followed by the word review or reviews to

find reviews of a book, the same for a restaurant, etc.

Hay, after all the stuff with game stop over the past week, I was thinking
about freedom scientific and NVDA access. So I saw freedom was on the stock,

it would not give me it’s stock price. So wonder if someone can tell me how

check on this? I asked both google and alexa and they were acting stupid
about the whole thing. I would ask google.com, but not sure how to start
searching!, It made me start to think about investing in our blindness
technology perhaps it will generate more income and that can create better
products that we all can use. Like a better braille display, screen reader,

better note taker. I agree with the red it theme, take charge of your own
and not let wall street and companies decide if the stock is worth something

or not, we should have a say not a person who does not use these products.
Just a thought for the tec group might have someideas or not! Cheers

Re: question why is something that is a non proffit still making money?

Alex Kenny
 

Non-profits can and do make money to pursue their goals and pay employees. However, any additional profit must be re-invested into the organization. To ensure that re-investment is taking place, there are generally additional accountability and transparency requirements, the specifics of which will depend on the countries where they're registered.


question why is something that is a non proffit still making money?

Mich Verrier
 

Hi all the topic of stocks made me wonder this why does something that says it is non profit still make money or need to? Since I thought that proffet ment that it was a money making thing? So if something is non profit shouldn’t it not make money and there for not have to pay any one and they can just work for free? From Mich Verrier from New Liskeard Ontario Canada.


Re: inspired by red it stocks

I should add that I don't know that much about investing so what I said may be partly misleading or some things may be wrong. For example, while thinking about this further, I think I was wrong about new issues of stock being the time to buy in bulk if you have a lot of wealth and want to move a stock price higher, helping the company to make more money. I don't think the company will make more money as the price goes up. Those who know more may wich to comment. I believe the company makes a certain amount per share when it offers new stock when it is purchased bythe first purchasers. After that, it is traded among investors and as far as I know the company doesn't make money from those trades. But if a company stocks are rising in value, they can charge a higher price when offering new stock and make more money that way. So if a stock is at a certain price at the time of a new offer, it can make more money.

When I say you should nvest for return, I'm not saying that movements to buy or not buy certain stocks may not make a difference in a companies profitability. My impression is that they often don't but I suspect that in cases where people decide as a large group at a certain time or over a period of time to invest in something like green technology companies, that such trends will increase the value of the sector and help finance such companies and help new or newer companies get started. But as I said, whether you, as an individual invest in a blindness tech company makes no difference unless you have the wealth to move that stock in the market and that move may not be permanent..

Heather, here's another catchy symbol to play ball with; NVDA ... No, not
what you and I are familiar with. NVDA is for Nvidia, and, if memory
serves, the company makes graphics cards for computers; it's possible it
makes other products, but that's what made it popular.

I honestly wish I could find a good group with stock advice. Something
really teaching the little guy how to get started, best platforms to
get started, and maybe a few stocks to really get going. I wish I had
gotten gamestop a few weeks ago. Should have put all my holiday cash
behind that one.

Excuse me? Vispero/Freedom Scientific most certainly does still own JAWS.
Despite the new name of the company, they still use the Freedom Scientific
name in the addresses of web sites for JAWS, Open Book and Zoom downloads,
and still refer to their podcasts as FSCasts. So the Freedom Scientific
name is still widely used by the company and has not been officially phased

out entirely.

I haven't done this for a long time, but You evidently can't, in any

There is no stock, as the company is privately held.
