Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (11/4/2016)
This week’s Friday wrap-up is coming to you from Los Angeles, where I am stationed for the Breeders’ Cup and surrounding events. It has been a busy week of travel between Las Vegas, Washington D.C. and now L.A., and the adventures do not stop here. Next week, I am off to Arizona and then Gainesville, where I will hopefully get to watch a still 1-loss Gators football team. Thanks goes out to Daily Accas and betting accumulator tips for supporting our site.
This week on Forbes:

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
