Let’s face it. When out on an RV trip, sometimes we need a break from all that nature. In these cases, it helps to have a television handy to relax and binge-watch a great show or movie.

Yes, there are TVs specifically built with vibration-resistant technology for RV use that protect it from vibration and extreme temperatures. Not just any high definition flat screen television can endure all those bumpy roads along your journey. 

However, mounting your flat screen will greatly extend the life of your electronics while also opening up that precious counter space. So, I say out with the old tv and in with the new tv that saves storage space!

Here’s a guide on the different kinds of mounts and how to install a flat-screen TV in an RV.

Before You Buy Anything

The type of TV RV owners mount depends on where in the RV they place it.

So first choose a spot on the RV wall and make sure it has a power source to plug in. 

Next, you’ll need to measure t

The Road to Authoritarianism is Paved with Fiat Currency

Some Fed board members are forecasting a rate increase by late 2022 or 2023, though with the rate still not reaching one percent. The Fed will neither allow interest rates to rise to market levels nor reduce its purchase of Treasury securities. A significant increase in interest rates would make the government’s borrowing costs unsustainable.

The Fed also raised its projected rate of inflation to three percent, although it still insists the rise in prices is a transitory effect of the end of the lockdowns. There is some truth to this, as it will take some time for businesses to get back to full capacity. However, the Fed began taking extraordinary measures to prop up the economy in September of 2019, when it started pumping billions of dollars a day into the repo market that banks use to make short-term loans to each other. The lockdowns only postponed and deepened the forthcoming Fed-caused meltdown.

Germany’s Deutsche Bank recently released a paper warning about the Fed

A Christian non-profit is challenging the Internal Revenue Service after the agency denied them tax-exempt status saying “the Bible’s teachings are typically affiliated with the Republican Party and candidates.”

Christians Engaged describes itself as educational, Christian, and non-partisan, and operates out of Garland, Texas. Its three main goals, as described by the non-profit, include:

To awaken, motivate, and empower ordinary believers in Jesus Christ to: pray for our nation and our elected officials regularly, vote in every election to impact our culture, and engage our hearts in some forms of political education or activism for the furtherance of our nation.

The non-profit works to show Christians how to “civically engage as part of their religious practice” but does not promote specific parties or candidates or earn money for political causes, according to the organization’s appeal letter to the IRS.

It’s been a typical market view in recent history that when a European oil major invests in renewable energy, like wind or solar, while ExxonMobil stays away, the decision is as much about being a European company as it is about being a fossil fuels one. But for the new European CEO of iconic American motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson, the push into electric bikes is simply an undeniable part of the motorcycle’s future.

“Electrification is a given,” Jochen Zeitz, Harley-Davidson CEO, said last week at the CNBC Evolve Global Summit. “The future will be electrified also in motorcycling.”

Electric bikes bring a focus on a new urban consumer, and also play into the bigger consumer idea that Zeitz — who took over as CEO last February — is pinning the motorcycle maker’s success to: “desirability.”

After having shored up the company’s financial situation — a strategic plan called Rewire that included cutting bac

“I’ve been dabbling in the crypto and stuff now for maybe eight months and you know we found some of these, I guess it’s just like play coins, things people make,” said Chris Williamson 

Williamson said he sank about $20 into a cryptocurrency called Rocket Bunny and it might have lived up to its name Tuesday morning, breeding like, well, bunnies rapidly overnight.

“I woke up, it’s like 9 a.m. and I always check my phone to check how my crypto to see how it’s doing and I like looked at it, I’m waking up, and I’m just like, ‘Naw, I’m sleeping,” the Georgia nursing school student said. “I look at it again and I’m like… at that point I fall out of my bed literally, and I run to my desk and I’m logging into the Coinbase app and stuff and I’m talking to my friends, got him on the phone and I’m like, ‘Dude, you need to help me figure out how to sell this now!’ He’s like, ‘Chris, somethin

As pandemic subsides, businesses push Congress for one more bailout

The U.S. economy is surging back from Covid-19, but restaurants, hotels and other industries hit hardest by the pandemic are telling Congress they still need tens of billions of dollars in new government funds to stay afloat.

The growing list of trade associations lobbying for a new round of pandemic aid — also representing gyms, amusement parks, travel agents and horse shows — say they suffered massive, unrecoverable financial losses because of social distancing restrictions and still face uncertainties as the economy recovers.

The plea comes even after Congress appropriated more than $1 trillion over the past year to support smaller employers through forgivable loans and grants. The Paycheck Protection Program alone delivered nearly $800 billion in short-term aid to 11.8 million businesses during the pandemic, with economists divided on the extent to which it really saved jobs.

“We’re still incredibly vulnerable,” said Sean Kennedy, the National Res

The World Relies on One Chip Maker in Taiwan, Leaving Everyone Vulnerable

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. ‘s chips are everywhere, though most consumers don’t know it.

The company makes almost all of the world’s most sophisticated chips, and many of the simpler ones, too. They’re in billions of products with built-in electronics, including iPhones, personal computers and cars—all without any obvious sign they came from TSMC, which does the manufacturing for better-known companies that design them, like Apple Inc. and Qualcomm Inc.

TSMC has emerged over the past several years as the world’s most important semiconductor company, with enormous influence over the global economy. With a market cap of around $550 billion, it ranks as the world’s 11th most valuable company.

Its dominance leaves the world in a vulnerable position, however. As more technologies require chips of mind-boggling complexity, more are coming from this one company, on an island that’s a focal point of tensions between the U.S. and
