Your Questions About Paper Trading Site

Steven asks…

How much money is needed to do stock investing?

Do you need to already have a fat wallet to even consider stock or no?
Also, who knows of a stock investing and trade website besides E trade?

John answers:

You should paper trade options before using real money… And the best site to use is thinkorswim.com

Donna asks…

What is the best way to help the endangered tarsier to be saved from extinction?

I need this for a Biology paper im doing.

John answers:

The Philippine tarsier, as its name indicates is endemic to the Philippines; albeit, around 45 millions years ago, they were known to populate rainforests around the world. They are primarily found in the island of Bohol and Leyte in Central Philippines and in the remaining rainforest of Sarangani Province, near the southernmost of the country. However, as human population continues to grow, farming as the livelihood of many of the common Filipino folks increasingly become extensive, disturbing much of the natural habitats of these primates that qualify as one of the smallest around the world.

Tarsiers have never formed successful breeding colonies in captivity, and when caged, tarsiers have been known to injure and even kill themselves because of the stress.One site in the Philipine Island of Bohol is having some success restoring tarsier populations.

The sale and trade of the species is prohibited.

For the past 45 million years, tarsiers have inhabited rainforests around the world, but now they only exist on a few islands in the Philippines, Borneo and Indonesia. In Bohol, the Philippine Tarsier was a common sight in the southern part of the island until the 1960s. Since then, the number has dwindled to as few as an estimated 1000 still left in the wild. Once protected by the humid rainforests and mist-shrouded hills, these mysterious primates struggle to survive as their home is cleared for crop growing. Due to the quickly growing human population, which causes more and more forests to be converted to farmland, housing areas and roads, the place where the Philippine Tarsier can live its secluded life is disappearing.

Along this line, the dwindling of Philippine forests has posed a grave and significant threat to the survival of the Philippine Tarsier because this results in the destruction of its natural forest habitat. Indiscriminate and illegal logging, cutting of trees for firewood, “kaingin” or slash and burn method of agriculture, urbanization patterns have encroached on the habitats of the tarsier, causing the tarsier to be threatened or endangered.

The unabated hunting of the species by humans for house pets or for trade has contributed to its decline as well. Hunting tarsiers to sell as pets was a thriving industry until recently. Because of its adorable and benign appearance, many have been lured to keep the Philippine Tarsier as pets. This demand fuels the capture and illegal trade of the animal further diminishing its remaining number.

Conserving biological diversity involves tools like the protection of natural or semi-natural ecosystems, the restoration and rehabilitation of degraded lands, and ex-situ conservation techniques. In-situ conservation is the maintenance of plant and animal genetic material in their natural habitat. The aim of in-situ conservation is to allow the population to maintain itself within the community of which it forms part and in the environment to which it is adapted so that it has the potential for continued evolution.Protected areas are among the most valuable in situ conservation tool and cost-effective means for preserving genes, species, and habitats and for maintaining various ecological processes of importance to humanity. They are set aside to conserve species that cannot be preserved ex-situ and wild crop relatives. The protected areas system maintain species diversity by protecting the range of different community types and by allowing for changes in species’ distributions. They do this by protecting the diversity of physical environments containing a range of situations to allow organisms to adjust their local distribution in response to climate change and linking corridors of natural and modified environments, which will allow species to change their continental distributions.

Reforestation attempts to restore deforested areas using indigenous tree species are more consistent with biodiversity conservation strategies such as protected area management and natural regeneration. This allows for enhanced forest ecological services such as watershed functions, wildlife habitat, and maintenance. As a result, local biodiversity is protected and rehabilitated. In trial sites in Leyte, local fauna has been seen to quickly re-colonize the mixed plantations of rainforestation cooperators/farmers.

Mark asks…

What is the difference between Micron and Grammage?

when determining the thickness of paper or card.
I don’t suppose there is a formula for coverting between the two?
sorry bad spelling — converting !!

John answers:

Traditionally in the paper trade grams per square metre g/m2 (sorry haven’t found out how to put symbols in here should be a small high 2) was used for paper and microns (thickness) for card. The dividing line was 160g/m2 or 200microns.

When photocopiers and other office printers started to be introduced the manufacturers quoted all paper tolerances by weight and this is starting to become the norm.

It is quite a good idea but thickness will vary between papers of the same weight because of different substances used to make different grades. For instance glossy art papers are made using china clay which is heavier than paper pulp. There is therefore no way to convert one measurement to the other. Sometimes paper merchants give both measurements but usually not and they are no longer consistent with the paper/card rule.

If there is a specific paper you need to know about try the manufacturer’s web site and send an enquiry.

Robert asks…

What exactly are those stock sales people doing?

I’ve seen movies and TV where what looks like hundreds of business men are all in one room, on the phone, shouting at whoever is on the other end. Paper is strewn all over the floor and they all seem to be rushing to get something done before time runs out for the day. My questions are:

1. What exactly are they doing?
2. Why the shouting?
3. What’s the big rush?

I know it has something to do with the stock market but that’s the extent of my knowledge on the subject.

John answers:

They are trading all sorts of things. Could be commodities, Bonds, Stocks, Oil, etc. They are shouting because it’s loud when you have a few thousand people on the same floor or like an enclosed mall and all are shouting.
The big rush is money is on the line that needs to be executed quickly, thousand of dollars could be lost in a few seconds, sometimes billions of dollars lost in a few seconds, so time is money. That explains your big rush and adrenaline pumping.
I invite you to check out my site for beginners and send me questions if you ever have any.
