How Much Money Can You Make Playing Magic the Gathering Professionally?

This article originally appeared on VICE Italy.

When I was 11, I started playing Magic: The Gathering (MTG), otherwise known as the world’s most famous collectible card game. Released in 1993, MTG – or “Magic” – is played in person or online by two or more people. Players assume the role of a wizard, and win by draining their opponent’s 20 life-points through their cards, which represent creatures, spells and artefacts. I loved the game to the point of obsession.

But then I went to high school, where it was considered nerdy. In an effort to impress girls, I stopped playing. Looking back, that was a huge mistake. If I’d kept going, I might have travelled the world as a professional Magic player. Because yes, that is an option.

The game generates massive profits for the toys and games

Can I apply for FEMA money due to Hurricane Zeta in MS?

South Mississippi residents whose homes were damaged in Hurricane Zeta are wondering why no major disaster declaration has been issued, which would make available federal funding for repairs.

A major disaster declaration can be issued quickly when damage is catastrophic because damage assessments can be waived. Category 4 Hurricane Laura’s catastrophic damage in August in Louisiana, for example, led to a quick major disaster declaration.

But Hurricane Zeta did not reach a catastrophic level in Mississippi, where the hurricane hit as a Category 1. Wind damage was widespread in the three Coast counties, including from falling trees. Some flooding also was reported, especially in Hancock County.

Emergency managers say they are completing damage assessments needed before Gov. Tate Reeves can request a disaster declaration from the president. The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is documenting damage by county for individual and public assistance.

Public assistance goes to local governments and other

Online shopping hacks for S’poreans to save money on overseas buys

Not being able to travel this year is a real bummer, but at least you can still have the travel shopping experience by buying things from overseas.

There’s nothing more satisfying than making an online purchase. You track it being shipped from overseas and watch it arrive at your doorstep after travelling thousands of kilometres across land and sea.

But you know what’s even more satisfying? Buying stuff overseas and saving money on the purchase.

Here are four hacks while making online overseas purchases.

#1: Always pay in foreign currency

When looking for items online, some of us may be tempted to pay for items in SGD even if there is an option to pay in other currencies. After all, SGD is the currency we are most familiar with.

However, when checking out your cart, it is sometimes actually better to pay in foreign currency instead.

Yes, you will incur

Gov. Jared Polis. Sen. Michael Bennet, Rep. Joe Neguse discuss road money under Biden | Colorado Politics

Gov. Jared Polis and a cadre of lawmakers on Tuesday morning talked about the flow of traffic and money in northern Colorado, as the region hopes to keep the long-needed improvements for Interstate 25 on track.

“Northern Colorado is a driver in our state’s economy,” Polis told the Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance’s annual Issues Summit, held online this year.

The issues included: energy jobs, environmental activists, wildfires and traffic jams from Denver to Fort Collins, as local and state leaders try to find the federal dollars to keep work going on the region’s spine, I-25.

“Supporting transportation infrastructure is not only an important way to stimulate the economy, it is truly important to our state’s competitiveness,” Polis told the chamber leaders, citing quality of life, commercial centers and access to recreation. 

Last week, when the governor presented his budget recommendations for next year, he included a one-time state stimulus package

Buying Four Seasons Merch? Be Careful Where Your Money Is Going.

It’s now been three days since the Trump Four Seasons (no, not that one) news conference, and we’re still not over it.

A refresher: On Saturday, when Joe Biden was projected the election winner and became president-elect, President Donald Trump tweeted that his team would be holding a “big” news conference at the “Four Seasons” in Philadelphia.

Both the president and the luxury hotel chain were quick to clarify that the event would, in fact, be held at a landscaping company that happens to bear the same name, no relation.

It’s a storyline not even the “Veep” writers could concoct. And the internet crowd, as they say, went wild.

Mad Money Recap With Jim Cramer: Still Fighting COVID-19

Today’s positive news about Pfizer’s  (PFE) – Get Report COVID-19 vaccine sent the markets soaring, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Monday, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to sell all of your stay-at-home stocks quite yet. 

Cramer said the day’s news should offer no doubt that we will win this war against the pandemic, but with COVID cases hitting new record highs, we still have a long winter ahead of us.

By Pfizer’s estimates, the company will only have enough doses to treat 23 million people globally this year, and it will only be able to vaccinate 600 million throughout all of next year. That means it’s still not too late to sell the office and retail REITs and the banks into any strength.

Cramer said the oil stocks will also continue to struggle, which is why he’s only recommending Chevron  (CVX) – Get

Sneaky ways Disney World gets you to spend more money

Each year, Disney World releases exclusive new merchandise. Uniquely designed trinkets are made available, and larger anniversaries and holidays are commemorated with entire lines of themed products. In this way, Disney incentivizes guests to make purchases that correspond with their particular visit: A generic shirt is nice enough, but one with the year on it will remind a family of their specific visit forever. This also incentivizes collecting annual merchandise, as visitors might want to purchase multiple editions of the same mug or shirt for their varying designs.

While these yearly designs can be cute, purchasing more generic merchandise is a whole lot more frugal. You might want to make an exception for a landmark year (Disney World’s 50th anniversary, for example, in 2021), or if you’re commemorating your own personal milestone. Sets of ears that look like graduation caps are especially endearing.
