This month, I’d like to talk about a very serious disease that affects an estimated 54 million Americans and can significantly impact one’s quality of life—osteoporosis. The National Osteoporosis Foundation reports 10 million individuals have been diagnosed with osteoporosis and another 44 million with low bone density, placing them at increased risk (www.nof.org).
When people think about cycles in the stock market, they tend to look at the obvious drivers of stock prices: major forces such as the state of the economy, the level of corporate profits, and conditions in global markets. But did you know that a presidential election itself can be a key pivot point in stock price trends?
After enduring months of political ads and sloganeering, we’re finally nearing Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. After casting a vote for your preferred presidential candidate, treat yourself to something sweet at the Rotary Club of Sylvania’s Flapjacks and Chef Hats pancake dinner fundraiser, to be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Sylvania Southview High School cafeteria. This fun and flavorful annual event helps support Sylvania Rotary’s educational and charitable initiatives both locally and around the world.
