Hello my friends -
At last, it's Saturday morning!. It's hard to believe, but blanket weather is already here in upper Westchester. For those of you lucky enough to escape New York City on the weekends, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Somehow, the air is just crisper here. The silence is welcome after a hectic week on NYC's streets, subways and such.
I have a weekend routine which includes coffee, my front porch, my two golden retrievers and a breathtaking view of Bear Mountain. Deep Breath. Exhale. I'm sure you have your routine this morning and I hope you'll work in watching some of our videos. Unwind and Rewind with some of our video highlights.
The signs of fall are sneaking up on us everywhere. The leaves are starting to drop and my view of the mountain is getting more and more spectacular. But this Saturday is proving difficult to enjoy my few moments of solitude before the children wake up. Instead, my thoughts are focused on friends and family living in South Florida. I grew up down there and covered, chased and experienced my share of hurricanes. As a young Executive Producer of Miami's coverage of Hurricane Andrew with fellow Executive Producer Mark Angotti and meteorologist Bryan Norcross... I know all too well what a storm like this can do. Hurricane Irma is another monster and it's expected to make landfall in the U.S. this weekend. TheStreet's special report breaks down everything you need to know, from how to prepare for the storm to how major corporations will be impacted to stealthy stock opportunities.

Bitcoin believer or bust
Ok, are you a Bitcoin believer? Or are you still watching from the sideline? Jeff Christian, managing director for New York based CPM Group did not mince words when it comes to the cryptocurrency. 'Bitcoin is the ultimate pet rock,' he told Kitco News Friday. 'I think it's just a gigantic speculative play, it has no tangible asset behind it. It's a scandal waiting to happen.' The longtime precious metals expert says he prefers gold because it is a more 'legitimate' asset class. 'What you are seeing is speculative players buying bitcoin,' he said. 'Just because you make money on it doesn't mean it's a legitimate activity.'
