Two different kings

In chessboard, the army moves to capture the opponent’s pieces. When the opponent’s king is checkmated, the game is over. The ranks from the lowest to the highest in the army die to protect the king. This contradicts the rules of true leadership where the king, namely the leader should frontline the battle and strive to face […]

Heads or Tails

Which candidate is the best choice for the stock market or for the stimulus checks? Who will win the US presidential election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 Trump or Biden?
