The simple material we call Silicon has literally revolutionized human civilization to this point. Testifying to its greatness is more than 70 years’ worth of steady progress in electronic computing: from the first primitive desktop calculators to that pocket-size supercomputer we call a smartphone. If you formulate silicon just right, and shape it into a transistor, it can be both a conductor and an insulator, depending on the charge you run through it. If it wasn’t for this unique property, the entire digital revolution…everything from TikTok to Covid vaccines-- would be impossible. Silicon is plentiful. It makes up 28 percent of the earth's crust. But silicon is showing its age when it comes to technological advancements. Some say the reliable doubling of the computational power of microchips every two years, known as Moore’s Law, is dead. Today, we'll examine the materials being developed to keep Moore's alive and the capabilities may shock you. Then Medicare and health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us.

Most investors, especially in or nearing retirement, seek to reduce risk while growing capital prudently in the stock market. Gains are nice, but large drawdowns are sickening, especially in retirement when you don't have an income stream from a full-time job and time is no longer on your side. When time IS on your side, and because most bear markets tend to last only six months to two years at the most, you are able to rebuild the value of your account simply by staying put, and not rushing for the exit. FACT: The only people who lost in 2008 and 2009 were those who sold at the bottom.
