    Iran Launches Missile Attacks On Military Bases Housing U.S. Troops In Iraq
    Iran has launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. military and coalition forces, targeting at least two military bases in Iraq, the U.S. Defense Department announced late Tuesday.

    The strikes on military and coalition personnel at the Ain al-Assad air base in Anbar province and in Irbil — at the center of Iraq's Kurdistan region — began at approximately 5:30 p.m. ET, according to a statement.

    Considering a New Life on the Northern Shore of Lake Chapala?
    If you are considering a new life on the northern shore of Lake Chapala, let me tell you a bit about where you will be living.

    Of all the popular retirement communities for expats in Mexico, Lake Chapala is one of the most beloved. Lake Chapala, which is home to nine different communities on its northwestern shore, is the largest freshwater lake in Mexico and is located less than an hour from downtown Guadalajara. It rests in the arms of the Sierra de San Juan Casola Mountain range, which is about 8,000 ft. above sea level. Lakeside is about 5,000 ft. The result is one of the best climates on the entire planet, with some of the most comfortable temperatures and gorgeous views. Lake Chapala, like many popular destinations in Mexico, is rich in culture and history. If you are trying to find your dream retirement destination, Lake Chapala is a great place to look.

    Australia is next as we’re tracking the decline in global new-vehicle sales that started in the US in 2017 and took on serious dimensions in 2018 with vehicles sales falling for the first time in modern China, the largest auto market in the world.

    New-vehicle sales in Australia fell 7.8% in 2019 to 1,062,867 units, the lowest since 2011, after having already fallen 3.0% in 2018, for a combined decline from the historic peak in 2017 of 10.8%. The sales declines in 2019 got worse all year, well before the horrific wildfires began. And December, when the wildfires were raging, new vehicle sales actually fell “only” 3.8% year-over-year. Soley blaming the wildfires would miss the target ...
