In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3.

At what point would you guys suggest moving to day trading full time. I’ve become extremely profitable in 6 months but I don’t want to prematurely make a decision.
