Wired bonds

Despite high inflation expectations, Treasury bond yields are declining, possibly due to risk aversion-driven demand before PCE release. This is evident as the stock market drops and short-term yields rise back today, while long-term yields still fall.

How to rough estimate TLT price change from treasury yield change
2024-2-17 21:18

TLT price ~= Treasury yield change

example: US 20-year treasury yield change from 4.4% to 4.3%,

  • treasury yield change : 4.4 - 4.3 = 0.1, change =0.1/4.4 = 2.27%
  • TLT price change ~= 2.27%

Let warring ways be banished from the world.

Let justice everywhere its carpet throw.

May Friendship reconcile ancient hatreds.

May Love grow from the seed of love we sow.

Forgive me, God, or whatever you are. Whether you forgive me or not, I don't care.

What I should do:

  • Train, do my best to improve myself, no matter how hard it is, I can do it!
  • Rest, this is part of training, do it!
  • Create, build the list, finish the list!

I'm somewhat down today. A high amount of listening has made me not want to do anything. I'm tired!

I need some change.

Listening The Daily's "The Afterlife of a gun"
2024-1-10 12:59

What happens to guns that nobody wants any more?

In U.S. police departments, many firearms are kept from confiscations, buyback programs, and other sources. There are usually 2 ways to dispose of them:

  • melt it down
  • destroy it by blowtorch or sledgehammer

But what people commonly don't know is that a company called Gun Busters provides a free service. They will destroy the gun by just destroying one piece like the receiver or the frame (which is allowed by law). However, the problem is that the gun isn't fully destroyed. They also sell the materials to others, and these materials can be used to make new guns.

I will Never! Never! Never forgive those who start and support the war!

In just one second, a little boy lost his mother in Gaza. There are thousands of unseen tragedies in the war.

前几天我买了个森海赛尔的耳机,包头的,有线,原因是我的旧的森海塞尔有线接触不良,经常需要转一转插头到一个特定位置才能听到双声道。买包头的因为想隔绝环境音+不要漏音,买有线是觉得简单,不用充电,森海的音质也好。淘宝上一般三百多,有一家店只要159。

我觉得可能是有线的买的少了,有些要清库存就低价,于是我选择了159的,等了2天,满怀激动的心情我拆开了它,刺鼻的味道,不灵活的伸缩告诉我这可能是假货,于是我准备退货,但是我知道卖假货要退一赔三,我去找店家申请。他当然是不同意的,于是我曉之以情动之以礼,顺便淘宝投诉假货,他妥协了,退款,赔我一百五,加耳机送我。

于是我拿着赔偿款可以够一够next level的耳机了,看评测,发现舒适度排行第一的耳机Sony WH CH720n, 索尼的无线耳机xm4我买过,重,不舒适,降噪虽强但是极度不适应,所以出了,这个720号称是索尼最轻的包头耳机,于是我决定给他一个机会。

已经等了两三天了,我不想再等了,京东769次日达,淘宝海外自营679,2天后达 当然是选便宜的,本来下单了,看到了同城自提只有10km,又心痒了,没骑一会,大货车呼啸带过来的灰尘让我想起一句话:“不要花时间在低于自己时间价值的事情上”,一个闪送三十块,干嘛要自己去取。来都来了只能硬着头皮去继续骑,只能安慰自己我是在体验贫穷,好让我知道没钱是多么艰难。出了绕城,来到一片工地包围的写字楼,终于拿到了货。命运的齿轮开始转动,心情从最低谷开始上升。

轻,舒适,一路回家听完2集podcast,戴着骑车也不冷,这让我很是开心,支持同时连2个设备,好好好,折腾一番,戴着跑步,稳定,还是轻,比xm4好多了,第一次体验这样安静的环境,激情的音乐,纯粹的跑步。

事件就是这样的事件,我觉得很有意思,第一次打假维权,买到超过期望的耳机,不用担心图书馆空调噪声等了。但是我喜欢强行总结点感悟,那就感悟点吧,不要花时间在低于自己时间价值的事情上面,但是花了好像也没那么糟。还是多折腾,多改变重要,总是会有惊喜。

Happy New Year!

In 2024, I will do my best to love, love my family, love myself, love my friends, love the world.

The end, try other lists...
