The Startpage.com website says they've been profitable since 2004. How are they making money?
They still display ads, the ads are not based on your browsing history but based on your current search terms.

Re: Rethinking the Permanent Portfolio

In other words, at duckduckgo, search !google “The Worthy Idea Behind Facebook’s Libra” Doing this completely bypasses any privacy of DDG. Because your search is actually taking place on that other site, you are subject to that site’s policies, including its data collection practices. You might as ...

Re: Anonymous SJW Chatbots

I’ll let insurance guy answer for startpage. For google via duckduckgo, I assume that the results are tweaked by google. It’s logical. Now that I know about these SJW shenanigans, I may occasionally try a pure duck 2 go search afterwards. Both DuckDuckGo and StartPage keep you out of the “Filter Bu...

You can use duck to search google without having your search results remembered- slightly off topic, but the main point is that I need google’s results. Not bing, not yahoo...
Startpage.com uses google's results but they are anonomized.

Re: PP Inspired Momentum - A Comprehensive Approach

My original post was meant to give ideas of how one might develop an investment model in order to not bias any discussion. Given that any discussion has run it's course, I have made several edits that reflect more closely my personal version of the model and it's prior trades for any who wish to fol...

Re: Tactical Asset Allocation + HBPP an intriguing combo

Good to know about iShares. Schwab seems to be working hard GEM's rolling 12-month return is -5.47%. Not all strategies are created the same. My modified version of GEM has a rolling 12-month return of +11.4% (unlevered). Unless you are willing to share signals on a regular basis, it is hard to fol...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

It's not TOEFL Recall, it's DOFU Recall (DOFU = TOFU) http://www.pbs.org/food/wp-content/blogs.dir/2/files/2011/10/mapo-tofu-hp-288x162.jpg That is a very Chinese joke. Not everyone will get that, but I appreciated it. I thought DOFU Recall was the burnt-in memory from the first time you ate Stinky...

Re: Tactical Asset Allocation + HBPP an intriguing combo

Not sure, I will run my data and do what it says to do. Over the past two months there has been a lot of research using the basic GEM methodology and measuring momentum. Personally I have been convinced by it that having a single signal is not a good long-term strategy. I have moved to 10 different...

Re: Largest College Admissions Scam Includes Hollywood Actresses and Coaches

As long as your primary motivation is to give your kids a better life, then breaking laws and cheating the system is okay isn't it? Isn't that the message we are all being sent by our immigration policy? I nominate jacksonM's comment as post of the year. So true. It's okay for poor people to do it,...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Just one quick comment: if you had one onerous administrative task to do many times a day, but that task involved up to 50 different forms, sets of rules, procedures etc that varied case to case requiring a huge administrative layer to sort through, what would happen if those were reduced to just o...
