As we near the supposed end of the world, which according to the Mayan calendar, is slated to occur in less than two months, with only one week's notice, hurricane Sandy is giving us a sneak preview of what the media might be like if such a dark fate were to soon bare down upon all of humankind.
Wall Street Holiday
The New York Stock Exchange planned a rare shutdown Monday because of Hurricane Sandy. The last time the NYSE closed down for a weather-related event was on Sept. 27, 1985, for Hurricane Gloria. Click here for a look at other unusual NYSE closings throughout history.
Perfect Timing, Perfect Storm
Recent market uncertainties may exacerbate due to the timely arrival of this sudden "Frankenstorm," which comes at the start of a key week in US politics and the financial sphere.

To drive their collective messages home, both mainstream and alternative media outlets are inherently sensational. That's why most of us keep tuning in, and some of us keep tuning out.

I suspect we can all agree in part with the saying, "Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see." However, if just 1/10th of what we see and hear these days is true, it remains in each of our best interests to take some common-sense prudent measures to effectively manage the most basic safeguards for ourselves and our families.
