Impact Investor: Stop Trying To Help People Without Including Them In The Conversation

“The Conscious Investor” is presented by Nuveen.

Morgan Simon learned that she could impact change in a big way when she was a student in college. Simon compelled Lockheed Martin to change their LGBTQ policies by convincing her college to file a shareholder resolution.

She has since spent nearly 20 years in impact investing and helped influence about $150 billion invested in the space.

Simon says impact investing can often fall short or be somewhat misguided. She says, “We’re often making decisions from the 30th floor of a high-rise on Wall Street and not taking our orders from affected communities.”

Simon says investors can start small by simply considering where they bank.

Lockheed Martin’s mysterious SR-72 — the fastest plane ever

In 2013, Lockheed Martin announced development of the successor to the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane.

The SR-71 was capable of reaching speeds over three times the speed of sound, and the SR-72 is intended to have even more impressive specs. Following is a transcript of the video.

The SR-72 is the successor to the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, which was the fastest plane to ever exist.

Built by Lockheed Martin in the 1960s, the SR-71 could reach speeds exceeding Mach 3 (above 2,200 mph). That’s over 3 times faster than the speed of sound. The recon jets went out of service in 1998.

Development of the SR-72 was announced in 2013.

It will be headed by “Skunk Works,” Lockheed’s advanced development program. Lockheed calls the SR-72 a “game changer.” The jet will be an unmanned hypersonic aircraft.

Lockheed claims it will reach speeds topping Mach 6 — over 4,500 mph — and they also want the jet to do more than just recon missions, including the ability to strike targets.

Experts say the jet could reach anywhere in the world within an hour.

Rumors of sightings have flooded the internet. Recently, an unmanned aircraft was seen at a Skunk Works facility. Reports say it could have been an early test for the SR-72. Lockheed confirmed plans to fly a research vehicle in the early 2020s.

If all goes well, it may not be long before the fastest plane ever hits the skies.

Money For Military: Trump appoints defense industry lobbyist as army secretary

Since Donald Trump took office, the share price of a number of military-industrial companies has increased significantly. Among them are Boeing, which besides civilian planes has a range of military aircraft, Lockheed Martin, a fighter jets and missile systems producer, and Raytheon, a major US defense contractor.
However, there are growing suspicions that the president favors those companies who supported him during his campaign. RT’s Miguel Francis-Santiago has more details.
