What mathematical fact? To out preform you don't need to win big early.
No, that big returns early are beneficial to long term growth (and more beneficial than big returns later)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

My problem is with him calling this a "lesson for investors". Contrast that with how Richard Russell (עליו השלום) put the lessons for investors, stressing NOT chasing returns, and not losing money (which I am sure Ritholtz agrees with). Russell's advice could be replicated by anyone.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I don't understand the appeals court. If "shipment or distribution" is a single clause, then the sentence is a fragment, missing the "and" or "or" to tie the list together.
If you don't care why would you comment?

I think one really needs to know Hebrew for this one, but for those that do, I find this very interesting:

Oy
Based on the headlines I was thinking that this might just as well be an Arab with dual US-Israeli citizenship. But after reading further down it says that this person "made aliya" which would exclude such a scenario. Though there's no indication whether he is Jewish or not.

Israeli press reporting that he is Jewish.
