Dragon Ball Super - Predictions on how the Universe Survival Arc will Progress

This past Saturday, July 1, 2017, Dragon Ball Super episode 97 aired, which was the start of the tournament of power.  In my opinion, the episode was pretty good and did not disappoint.  There was a lot of action, and it laid the groundwork for the tournament and even saw a pair of characters get knocked off the ring already (albeit nobody important).

I've been trying to figure out how this arc will go, and I just can't imagine all the losing universes being erased.  Obviously Universe 7 is going to win the tournament, but the writers have spent so much time crafting some of the characters in Universe 6 such as Champa, Cabba, and Hit, that it would be kind of crazy for them to go away at the end of the tournament.

Now this is all speculation, but I'm going to go out on the limb and say that the tournament will not come to a conclusion.  Similar to the Buu Saga, something crazy is going to happen and the tournament will be suspended.  

At first, I thought this was going to be a linear story line.  The universes would gather their warriors, the warriors fight, and Universe 7 wins.  Goku is declared the best fighter, and uses the Dragon Balls to revive the other universes.  

But, when they got rid of Majin Buu and replaced him with Frieza, that provided a twist.  Initially I thought this was because Universe 11 had Jiren the Gray and Goku would need powerful allies to combat him.  However, Toriyama seldom has a battle won by a group versus an individual (unless if you count the Spirit Bomb as a group effort, then yes, it happens all the time).  For example, I can't see Goku, Frieza, and Vegeta gang up and beat Jiren the Gray, that just doesn't happen in Dragon Ball.

Back in episode 95, we saw Frieza make a mental note that he knew for a fact that the gods could be manipulated because of the unique situation of the tournament deciding the fate of the universes.  In episode 96, we see Frieza and Frost agreeing to work with one another, although to accomplish what aim, has yet to be seen.

I'm speculating in future episodes that Frieza and Frost will hang around for a handful of episodes but then get knocked off the edge and on to the bleachers.  I am also speculating that at that point in the arc, all of Universe 9 will be eliminated.  Because Universe 9 will be eliminated, Sidra will form an alliance with Frieza and Frost to undermine the Grand Priest and Zeno.  From there, Frieza and Frost will cause conflict among the Gods of Destruction, so much so to the point where the tournament has to be suspended. For example, they'll cause a fight between Beerus and Champa.  

Sidra will learn of the location of the Super Dragon Balls and teach Frieza the language of the gods.  Frieza and Frost will kidnap the Yardrat from Universe 2 and use him to teleport them to the Super Dragon Balls.  They will then use the wish orbs to imprison Zeno, the Grand Priest, and all of the angels.

The warriors from the participating universes along with the Gods of Destructions and Kais will realign themselves in all out war for dominance over all the domains.  Universe 7 will lead the group who will seek to free Zeno and the others.  While Universe 9 will lead the group that seek to not be erased.

This all just speculation but let me know what your thoughts or feedback in the comments section.

9 Core Values to Help Disciplined People to Steadily Build Wealth

This post is for people who are self-disciplined and looking to invest money outside of their employer sponsored retirement plans.  It is also for those who are aspiring to find ways to generate passive income.

As an educator in New York City, we are provided an employer sponsored 403-b called the Tax Deferred Annuity (or TDA for short).  For more information on it, I wrote about some of my observations about educators and retirement in an earlier article called A little bit goes a long way. 

For those who are not familiar with TDA, it offers a variety of investment options but the most promising is the guaranteed returned fix rate for UFT members at 7% annually, and 8.25% for all other members. The maximum contribution that an individual can make is $18,000 for the year, which is similar to a traditional IRA for everyone else.

If you find yourself in a unique situation where you still have money to invest then I would like to share some of my own ideas that I have put into practice.…

Influence People

Today we continue exploring Dale Carnegie's book How to Win Friends and Influence People.  The first part of this two series post was on How to make friends which you can check out by clicking the link below:

How to make friends

The other portion of this text is about influencing people.  If you'd like to read all the points that Dale Carnegie suggests, wikipedia does a nice job of laying it out in an easy to read format in the link below.

While Mr. Carnegie lists out twelve key points to winning people over to your way of thinking, I'd like hone in on a few of his points that in my opinion are the most important.  I think because these points feel so counterintuitive that it becomes difficult to understand how these points could be valid.

Nonetheless, I would like to share my thoughts with you on these few ideas and pair them with a brief anecdotal.  Then you can be the judge and determine its merits or…

7 Key Traits Required For Stock Selection.

In Chapter 14 of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor, he focuses on the 7 items for defensive stock selection.

In the preface, this chapter is highlighted by Warren Buffett as one of the keynote chapters, and therefore the reader should pay special attention to the advice that Graham offers.

For those who are unfamiliar with Benjamin Graham he was a former fund manager, professor, and is considered the father of value investing.  Value investing is a strategy where stocks are purchased at less than their intrinsic value.  Intrinsic value in layman's terms is the amount the company is worth (Assets - Liabilities = Worth).

By the way, the equation above is not the actual method for finding intrinsic value, it is just a gross oversimplification of what it means.  I would also like to note that intrinsic value is different than the stock price.  The stock price is what the market is valuing the company at, but it may not reflect its intrinsic value.

For example:
