Over the last 30 years I’ve accumulated a lot of “junk” from eBay Now, I’m also trying to clean out my house, and sell it at cost or a small profit. With eBay now sending out 1099s, I believe I have to pay taxes on the profits. Is it possible to use the income figure on the 1099, say $6,000, and contribute this amount to an IRA rather than claim the small profit and pay taxes?
Defense, aerospace, and space giant Boeing (NYSE: BA) scored a long-awaited win on Nov. 16, when the Boeing-built Space Launch System successfully lifted off from Kennedy Space Center on a long, looping trip out past the moon and back. The space mission, dubbed Artemis 1, won't wrap up until the spacecraft it launched -- Lockheed Martin's Orion -- returns to Earth on Dec. 11. Just halfway through the mission, though, Artemis 1 scored a PR success for NASA and for Boeing, snapping a photo from its greatest distance -- a quarter million miles from Earth -- that space fans are calling "iconic."

NEW YORK (Project Syndicate)— The world economy is lurching toward an unprecedented confluence of economic, financial, and debt crises, following the explosion of deficits, borrowing, and leverage in recent decades. In the private sector, the mountain of debt includes that of households (such as mortgages, credit cards, auto loans, student loans, personal loans), businesses and corporations (bank loans, bond debt, and private debt), and the financial sector (liabilities of bank and nonbank institutions).
Question: I have heard it a thousand times: “People make more money with a financial advisor, don’t lock in your losses, stay invested,” etc. So I started with a financial adviser at a national firm in March. It has been a nearly continuous plunge of my savings, with a 13% loss in my portfolio, and yet not one adjustment has happened.
