Past research has not found an association between exposure to natural disasters and personality changes.
Damian's past research has also not found an overall change in personality traits among those affected by major storms like Hurricane Harvey.

But the washout may not have reached its end game yet, according to two top private equity investors.
Investors need to be able to model long-term growth rates and profitability, and that could take a while, he added.
Both private equity leaders see consolidation among tech companies as a precondition to going public in the future.
There were too many companies in many of the new tech niches where investors backed public offerings in recent years, Ford says.

Sep 27, 2022; Toronto, Ontario, CAN; New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Judge (99) celebrates in the dugout with team mates after scoring against the Toronto Blue Jays in the third inning at Rogers Centre.
Mandatory Credit: Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY SportsTORONTO, Sept 27 (Reuters) - The New York Yankees clinched top spot in the American League East with a 5-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday but Aaron Judge's pursuit of Roger Maris's home run record remained stalled on 60.
But with eight games remaining in the regular season that pressure is being dialled up with each missed opportunity.
The seven-game home run drought is the second longest of the season for Judge after a nine-game homerless stretch in mid-August.
Tuesday's game marked just the second time in his career Judge had been issued four walks.
But for Impactive Capital co-founder and managing partner Lauren Taylor Wolfe, it all comes back to financial performance.
"We believe that ESG without returns is simply not sustainable," she said Wednesday at CNBC's Delivering Alpha conference.
Even if returns aren't the sole focus of an investment vehicle, sustainable investing can still generate alpha for investors.
When it comes to applying an ESG lens to public market investing, Impactive Capital's Taylor Wolfe said investors need to be creative around how ESG is used to drive returns.
She added that the recent market turmoil could spark a reset of sorts within the sustainable investing landscape.

I think you cannot ignore China."
"Corporations cannot ignore China, investors cannot ignore China, because if you want to ignore China, you also are going to ignore all the partners that China has."
"China right now is 20% of global GDP, probably going to 25% of global GDP by 2035.
And as Anastasia mentions, you can't ignore China if you're trying to understand global growth and you're trying to understand global markets," Cass said.
Perkins loans that aren't held by the US government do not qualify for Biden's new student-loan forgiveness.
To qualify for up to $20,000 in forgiveness, you must consolidate your loans into Direct loans.
This may not be the best option for everyone, since some Perkins loans are forgiven after five years.
Unlike federal student loans, some Perkins loans are serviced by the school you attended, but the federal government pays for interest accrued while you're still in school.

By historical standards, Gen X should be in charge of the US by now.
Think of them as the godparents of the "Xennials" — those born in the late 1970s or early 1980s who aren't fully Gen X or millennial.
No matter whether you deny the 61-year-old Obama is a boomer, Gen X is starting to get up there in age.

"It's like seeing a ghost that doesn't appear," she said of any expectation the presidency would just suddenly open up for Gen X.
California job postings will soon include pay ranges, thanks to a new salary transparency bill signed into law by Gov.
The move makes California the largest state where job listings will require salary information by law.
In California, women are paid roughly 88 cents for every dollar paid to a man, with the gap increasing for women of color.
Reporting pay data based on job and demographic background can help uncover occupational segregation that employers may not be aware of.
Previous California law already requires companies with 100 or more direct-hire workers submit job and demographic data for those workers.

A volatile market is traditionally a strain on active managers as they navigate their clients' portfolios, but 2022 has proven to be an unconventional year for their operations.
According to the SPIVA U.S. Scorecard, a new study by S&P Global, large-cap active managers are experiencing the best year against their benchmarks since 2009.
Ganti said the declining market has brought losses across equities and fixed income, as well as rising rates and rising inflation.
According to the SPIVA study, higher dispersion implies a greater possibility of generating above-average performance through judicious stock selection.
Eighty-four percent of active managers underperform benchmarks after five years.
The other day, Linda, the real-estate agent whom my wife and I used to buy our home, called me out of the blue.
Real-estate agents, like doctors, are the friendly, knowledgeable face of a bewildering, price-gouging system.
If Americans paid the same rate as the British, they would save more than $72 billion a year in real-estate commissions.
The potential for big money, in turn, has led more and more Americans to become real-estate agents.
Every dollar that is paid out in a real-estate transaction — to sellers, agents, inspectors, insurers, and the IRS — comes from you, the buyer.
WASHINGTON — The Senate voted Tuesday to move forward with funding the government through mid-December ahead of a Friday deadline to avert a shutdown.
The short-term funding measure includes money for Ukraine aid, Afghan resettlement, parolees and security enhancements for U.S. courts, among other provisions.
Republicans, still angry about Manchin's vote for the Democrats-only bill in August, credibly threatened to tank the government funding bill if his permitting measure was tacked on.
During the Senate vote, Manchin reached out to Republicans to discuss restarting negotiations over a permitting package, including Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., Cassidy said.
"The fact that Joe traded his vote for permitting reform doesn’t make permitting reform any less of a noble venture," Cramer said.
U.S. President Joe Biden speaks to reporters as he departs for Boston from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, U.S., September 12, 2022.
U.S. President Joe Biden's tendency to ad-lib in impromptu press situations is often referred to in Washington as his "gaffe" problem.
After Biden spoke on defending Taiwan in a CBS News "60 Minutes" interview this month, officials quickly said that U.S. policy towards Taiwan is unchanged.
His apparent willingness to commit U.S. forces to a battle in Taiwan clears up a long-standing disconnect in U.S. policy towards Taiwan.
While Biden's off-the-cuff remarks sometimes reveal deeper truths about his policy or opinions, other times they are simply misleading.
Coverage of the war in Ukraine has often focused on the new, high-tech weapons being used there.
These are Soviet systems.
Coverage of the war often credits Western weapons sent to Ukraine as turning the tide on the ground and allowing a Ukrainian counteroffensive to roll back Russian gains.
Ukraine is fielding more and more Western weapons as its older Soviet equipment is destroyed or replaced.
It's a sign of desperation that after losing more than 1,000 tanks in the war, Russia is using T-62 tanks that were obsolete nearly a half-century ago.

Americans have two options for a new omicron-specific Covid booster shot: Pfizer or Moderna.
Pfizer's booster is cleared for anyone 12 and older, while Moderna's booster is for people 18 and older.
"People ages 18 years and older may get a different product for a booster than they got for their primary series, as long as it is [Pfizer or Moderna,]" the CDC's website reads.
"It's OK to mix and match Moderna and Pfizer," Dr. Ralph Gonzales, associate dean for clinical innovation at UC San Francisco, said at a campus town hall earlier this month.
I definitely felt a stronger response with the Moderna — having had Pfizer before — but either combinations are fine."

A four-day work week, remote work, and "no meetings" are the new sticking points for job hoppers.
Smaller companies with 100 workers would save nearly $2.5 million annually if they dispensed with meetings, Rogelberg found, while firms with at least 5,000 employees would save more than $100 million.
On average, the companies Rogelberg interviewed wasted about $25,000 per employee by scheduling them for unnecessary meetings.
The report defines "unnecessary" meetings as ones that employees reported that they could skip, as long as they were kept in the loop.
But that's not to say that people aren't enamored with something like a four-day workweek, anyway.
The pain for stocks is far from over and investors should look elsewhere until the market comes to grip with a global recession caused by central banks, according to the BlackRock.
"Many central banks aren't acknowledging the extent of recession needed to rapidly reduce inflation," wrote Boivin and team.
Bonds and stocks have both fallen sharply this year as the Federal Reserve and other central banks have hiked interest rates.
