If you’ve spent any time in the #personalfinance or #FIRE spaces you’re almost certainly familiar with the popular and widely proclaimed tenet that one cannot save one’s way to wealth; that, rather, one must invest to achieve wealth.
Scroll through the Instagram and Twitter accounts of popular finfluencers and you will encounter a plethora of graphics/charts underlining the paltry yield one makes on a savings account vs the divinely guaranteed 7% return one can expect to make in the stock market every year.

There was a large #fire in #Russia yesterday that may have been more than just another industrial accident. The fire was in #Dzerzhinsk, a city in the Nizhny Novgorod region, 230 miles (370 km) east of Moscow. A 🧵. 1/
The fire in Dzerzhinsk, Russia occurred in an old industrial park outside the city center. It started when a railway tank car exploded, which set other nearby railcars on fire as well. The tanks contained either solvents, fuel, or lubricants, depending on reports. 2/
Eventually the fire covered an area of about 2000 square meters (0.5 acres). That's not a particularly big area, but the fire was strong and generated a lot of smoke. Almost 100 firefighters with 29 pieces of fire equipment were called in to put out the blaze. 3/

Heute kam der Sohn meines Nachbarn bei mir vorbei, mit einem Brief seines Arbeitgebers. Warum wir in diesem #System unbedingt etwas ändern müssen, ein #Thread. #arbeitswelt #arbeit #arbeitgeber #arbeitvonmorgen #leben (1/x)
Dieser junge Mann aus einer etwas schwierigen Familie mit Migrationshintergrund, 20 Jahre, möchte seinen Führerschein machen und hat sich beworben. Also schreiben wir gemeinsam Bewerbungen. Im September letzten Jahres fängt er eine Arbeit als #Kommissionierer an für ein Verlag.
Er muss ziemlich früh raus, gegen 4 Uhr muss er schon auf den #Zug. Die #Verbindung ist schlecht, er muss auch mit dem #Bus fahren. Aber er arbeitet gerne. Versteht sich mit den Kolleg*innen und war bisher immer #pünktlich, arbeitet #sauber und #ordentlich.

First #Fire, now water: #Storm hits Greek island #Evia

Dubbed #Athena by #Greece meteorologists, the storm caused "huge damage" to the road network near the coastal villages of Agia Anna & Psaropouli, a regional official said
Dozens of homes have flooded ... torrents burst their banks (even though) the rain only lasted a couple of hours. This is a sign of a very tough winter to come," deputy central #Greece governor for Evia George Kelaiditis told the channel. #Storm
#Evia #Greece
There were no immediate reports of people trapped in homes or cars, he added.
