Stock Market Big Sell-Off Looming -- Winston, 23:16:59 05/03/15 Sun
Astro-wise, we have Mercury opposing Saturn Sunday on the Full Moon and then Saturn sesqui-squaring Uranus Monday (usually an outlier event signature that can cause panic). To top that off, we have the Sun T-Squaring Jupiter, which can exaggerate the move. We have a Bradley turn due Monday coming off what appears to be the end of a counter trend 'b' wave. All this tells me we have a 'c' wave down into late Monday or early Tuesday to the SPX 2064/65 zone. Top to bottom, this would be about a 2% drop. From what I'm reading, this is just the beginning of the down move. http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article50506.html

with my own soul on this entire subject. And Bob god bless him he thought that I was wrestling with him but the Gnostic line of reasoning surpassed all of the esoteric philosophers and defenders of Roman Catholicism and its derivatives.
But absolute reason dictates that one eventually one comes down to the Gnostic take on our original origins. My whole life has come down to reducing everything down to its logical conclusion.
Its elegance is uncompromising. But it requires one to unlearn certain powerful tenants that have been programmed by the matrix which is Mystery Babylon that was designed to perpetuate a riddle wrapped in a enigma that has kept the elect in bondage for eons.

Can Bitcoin Conquer Argentina? - NYTimes.com -- Forestgold, 13:56:52 05/03/15 Sun
Commerce of this sort has proved useful enough to Argentines that Castiglione has made a living buying and selling Bitcoin for the last year and a half. “We are trying to give a service,” he said.
That mundane service — harnessing Bitcoin’s workaday utility — is what so excites some investors and entrepreneurs about Argentina. Banks everywhere hold money and move it around; they help make it possible for money to function as both a store of value and a medium of exchange. But thanks in large part to their country’s history of financial instability, a small yet growing number of Argentines are now using Bitcoin instead to fill those roles. They keep the currency in their Bitcoin “wallets,” digital accounts they access with a password, and use its network when they need to send or spend money, because even with Castiglione or one of his competitors serving as middlemen between the traditional economy and the Bitcoin marketplace, Bitcoin can be cheaper and more convenient than Argentina’s financial establishment. In effect, Argentines are conducting an ambitious experiment, one that threatens ultimately to spread to the United States and disrupt some of the most basic services its banks have to offer.

yin yang solid state @ gold & silver -- Bullishonbronze, 03:21:31 05/02/15 Sat
(Irrespective of gases, plasmas and liquids, but as solid entities and thus more exactly paralleling the western symbol Wheel of Fortune), although commonly perceived as a dynamic symbol--opposites in motion--the yin-yang is static because no third element is represented therein. There is no grist, or lubricant, as it were, for the two entities to slip past each another.
in thus, what were the ancients suggesting?
On the other hand, Erwin Schrödinger--who had a keen interest in religion of the East--could have suggested that the third element is the beholder of the symbol (the observational perspective).
And what might have been offered by the Frenchman, Jacques Derrida (1930-2004): the context (the semantic field) in which is postured the yin-yang.
In light of these insights, back to the ancients. The symbol could be interpreted anew as:
In reality there is an element which appears as change but is not itself change, rather all changes about it.
In the movie The Matrix (1999), said to Neo: "It is not the spoons which bends."

The 30-plus-year-old bull market in US bonds, notes and bills may well be the most destructive man-made “Bubble” in all of recorded history. It will sooner or later implode because it is unsound to the core. A puncturing of the bubble may start when any of several huge holders sells. Its implosion will trigger the sale of other overpriced corporate, municipal and foreign bonds, and the dollar itself may well be replaced as the world reserve currency. The US bond bubble is the Godfather because it is so large that no other investment market can absorb the mass exodus which will come from it. It is logical that those who have worked so deliberately to create this debt bubble will fight even harder to prevent its collapse. When it implodes, it will probably bring down lesser bubbles and excesses, including the function of the dollar as a world exchange currency. http://www.jsmineset.com/

Although the Sun appears to "rise" from the horizon, it is actually the Earth's motion that causes the Sun to appear. The illusion of a moving Sun results from Earth observers being in a rotating reference frame; this apparent motion is so convincing that most cultures had mythologies and religions built around the geocentric model, which prevailed until astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus first formulated the heliocentric model in the 16th century. ~ wikipedia
How Student Loans Could Cripple the U.S. Economy -- Forestgold, 22:22:19 04/30/15 Thu
The parade of graduation commencement speakers starts soon, and hopefully Rick Rieder won’t be among them. Because the message from BlackRock’s chief investment officer of fundamental fixed income to all those fresh-scrubbed graduates would be a big downer: Your student debt could cripple the U.S. economy.
Rieder doesn’t actually blame college grads for student debt reaching almost $1.2 trillion last year, its highest level ever. It’s what they and their parents must borrow to pay for college—what he calls “this long-term unmitigated acceleration in the cost”—that he targets. It’s something people should be concerned about even if no tuition or student loan looms in their future, he says. Rieder cites four interrelated reasons why college debt could hurt economic growth.

More Stockman -- RIP, 13:47:05 04/30/15 Thu
...By contrast, between 2000 and 2014, the real defense spending component grew by 37%. So the quality and sustainability of the 3.6% real final sales growth number for 1953-1971 was far better than the 1.8% rate posted during the most recent 14 years. The latter period was inflated by wasteful defense outlays, reflecting the Bush wars of invasion and occupation that are now being rolled-back owing to the abysmal failure of these imperial adventures and to the belated fiscal constraints of the sequester.

"If Iran strikes a deal with the West, all sanctions will be lifted very quickly and there's nothing the U.S. Congress can do to stop it, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told a New York audience Wednesday.
In a set of blustery and self-righteous remarks, Iran's top diplomat assured the crowd at New York University that President Barack Obama would be compelled to stop enforcing sanctions only days after any nuclear agreement was signed and would have to figure out how to lift congressional sanctions on Iran within weeks, no matter what Congress has to say about it. He also said that any future president, even a Republican, would be compelled to stick that agreement.
Zarif also took several shots at the U.S. Senate, just as it debated amendments to a bill designed to slow the lifting of sanctions against Iran and give Congress an oversight role on the deal."
. . .
"Zarif also said that if the next president tries to change or withdraw from the agreement, as some Republican presidential candidates have promised, the U.S. would risk isolating itself in the world and ruining its credibility.
The American president is bound by international law, whether they like it or not. And international law requires the United States live up to any agreement this government enters into,he said. You know that, maybe Senator Cotton doesn't.
Zarif criticized the effort in the Senate to pass a bill from Senator Bob Corker that would delay the lifting of sanctions by several weeks while Congress reviews any deal. Several Republican senators are trying to add amendments making the bill tougher on Iran. Zarif said the U.S. will pay if Congress successfully interferes with nuclear deal.

How to really view American politics in 2015 -- Permabear1, 10:01:29 04/29/15 Wed 
If you imagine how a Republican form of government is suppose to work including everything you learned in civics class concerning the balance of power between executive, legislative and judiciary, this is what we have now:
The political process should now be viewed as a financial transaction, much like the process involved with launching a stock IPO. Any new candidate should be considered an IPO once he or she strives for national office. At the local city, county and state, the candidate is more like a startup and seed capital is provided. This seed capital may involve providing some of the most important funds in the process in that they perform like stock options that are exercised later if the startup you put money into reaches Congressional level and you ponied up some of the seed capital. When you exercise your stock option on your successful congressional candidate, a solid dividend return can be expected in the form of your candidate "bringing home the bacon to the home district". Whoopee your investment has netted a huge return.
To get a startup going however, you need smaller "investors (i.e. potential voters)" who allow themselves to be used by the startup process. This is called a political caucus where the startup has learned every line and verse by heart of "telling the locals what they want to hear". These investors do not actually get a return other than ego gratification if they candidate does well. More importantly, this initial supporters help spread the candidates "prospectus (i.e. talking points)" around so help generate more interest in the startup.
Once the IPO is successfully launched at the Congressional Level, stock offerings show up every two to four years as the congressional stock is much higher priced now so it takes more and more investment capital to buy a position in the candidate. The two to four year cycle is used to legitimatize this process and the "citizens" who partake in this hollow exercise are called voters.
Conclusion: Voting is pointless unless you actually have some green in the game because it is pointless to expect anything from the process other than the payout back to individual or corporate investors that took part in the process.

Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, subsidies, and access to social services. With few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture; aid from the United States represents a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product.

Russian Scientist Makes a Breakthrough: Quantum Protection for Physical Objects is Created -- Forestgold, 23:38:48 04/28/15 Tue
The newly developed payment card is a clear white sheet of plastic in which there is no magnetic tape, chip or any other commonly used component to encode electronic information.
During the process of the new card's manufacture, nano-sized material, capable of absorbing a broad spectrum of energy and irradiating in the visible spectrum, is mixed with polymer granules. One of such substances is so-called quantum points. The inventor has also created the equipment for industrial production of quantum points, resistant to aggressive environment.
In the process of melting the plastic mass, the quantum points are distributed throughout the molten fluid in a random and thus irreproducible way. After the new card is produced the spatial coordinates of each quantum point are being registered, to be stored on a secure server. When the card is scanned its geometric pattern is being matched with that of the original patterns stored on the server, and the card is authenticated.

Noticing the same issue again and again over several months ... so it is not just a need to wait for a shipment.

wondering how one gets some and how best to keep in cold storage--for later use when things become problematic with the dollar. I like the idea have having a coin that has a micro-chip, however how would one know that the company actually did that right--one would not, it seems, until one attempts to engage it in commerce. Can BTC be stored on a memory-stick? Or does one need another computer or hard-drive not connected to the net. ... Where's the store to buy BTC? And does one write a check or wire from a bank?

Rip does not have Dyslexia. Many directors and writers that I have run into have some form of Dyslexia. Letters being inverted or up side down such as p,d,q,l,v,n,m,w play havoc in typical elementary education.
I kick a ball with my left foot but write with my right hand. I could get more hits batting left handed but could hit home runs with my right.
The reason that I suspect is the reason of the over creative representation of LD or dyslexia is perception that makes one think and feel different regarding an abstraction that he or she is perceiving.
Good grammar and the perfectionary utilization of the mechanical tools of the english language in particular is dependent on the utilization of different regions of the brain.
Screen writing is easier for me then writing a novel as you are required to describe entire scenes as snap shot.
I have done both.
But Nobody does everything when story telling in today's world. The writer provides content from his or imagination . The editor provides structure so more people can understand better what the writer is seeing.
Rip doesn't seem to believe many of my stories. But the joke is on him because he still reads them and creeps or visits me where ever I am on the Internet. As a story teller I don't give a rat's ass on what Rips believes because I know he will read every fucked up sentence I write.

"Ukrainian online news Web site LB.ua on April 21 published an interview with a Latvian citizen who claims to have worked as an interpreter for the Donetsk People’s Republic militant organization. Although it is difficult to verify his account, the tale of lawless and banditry in the militant-held parts of Ukraine chimes with other recent reports coming out of the area. Translation of original article in Russian by UNIAN staff. "
'DNR translator: This is a spectacle for the whole world'
By Zoya Lukyanova
Why are Russian humanitarian convoys half-empty? What kind of seized tanks are filmed by Russian journalists? Who is actually fighting for the DPR [the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic] and what is the local civilians’ attitude toward those people? We managed to record an interview with a Latvian citizen, who served as an interpreter in a reconnaissance group of the DPR forces for 21 days.
He was born in Latgale, the eastern part of Latvia, which is home to about half a million native Russians who have repeatedly complained of “political discrimination by the Latvian authorities.” In the wake of current events in Ukraine, pro-Russian sentiment in Latgale has risen significantly. Even an image of a “Latgale People's Republic” flag can be found somewhere on the Web. Pro-Russian propaganda is also working over there, so our interlocutor, who is Latvian, came to the DPR-held part of Ukraine absolutely sure that he was going to defend the Donbas people from the brutal “ukry” [a derogatory term recently created in Russia for Ukrainians, mostly Ukrainian military]. But he quickly changed his mind and tried to leave the territory of the self-proclaimed republic. He actually managed to make it out, which he counted a big success. The former interpreter for the DPR agreed to tell about what he had seen in the DPR, on condition of anonymity under the pseudonym “Latgalets” [born in Latgale].
. . . (See link)
So they just let you leave, after all that you had seen?
Well, I’ve been really helpful over there. They’ve taken away everything, there are just a couple of pictures left in my phone. When I was leaving, someone shouted “Stop!” behind me. I thought, they would shoot me in the back of the head, I already began to tremble, and he goes, “Give me back the ticket.” That was the only way he would give me back my passport, in exchange for a ticket. I came back the same way as had come. I'm afraid that they would figure out who I am. Either those guys or the SBU [the Security Service of Ukraine]. I know that two Latvians failed to return.
What is your subjective evaluation of what you saw?
Just hold your territory, don’t go on offensive. There’s no help for the Russians there, no support – the locals hate them. Civilians have no jobs and no peace because of them. Everybody is dying from idleness and even from hunger. This is yet another Holodomor. Both in Luhansk and Donetsk. All this made me stutter for a couple of weeks. Now I’d like to fight for the other side. Against these people, not against the civilians. This is banditry, I can’t find no other name for it.

That's good news for Russia. Since Russia is anti-NWO, that makes me pro-Russian. How Russia doesn't fall into traps and outmanoevers NWO is refreshing to see.
Russians already proved themselves friends of the American people when they alone responded immediately to Abraham Lincolns request for protection for American coasts from foreign forces during civil war, buying 100 more years of democracy.

Oh Oh bad newz for Smittie,Winnie, Mickee and Ripofkov -- Carmack, 15:38:00 04/27/15 Mon
On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.
Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.
When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.
The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation
it's anyone's guess as to why Skinee hasn't invited RIP to learn the secret handshake -- Bullishonbronze, 15:26:38 04/27/15 Mon
but it's very likely Skinee concluded RIP is busy Saturday evenings with people who tell RIP that they significantly influence the price of gold. It's a notion that Skinee finds funny since Skinee has people telling him that they secretly influence anyone who is influencing the price of gold. Yet both do hold in common the opinions that neither the Chinese or goldbuggs influence gold pricing, and that the Chinese do not influence the price of realty in Vancouver, B.C., and that Walmart controls China manufacturing, ... that US Treasuries are the best investment ever, and that the Cubs will win the World Series this year.

Gold has been cash for 3000 years -- Smythe, 04:39:43 04/27/15 Mon
what if "they" are looting and procuring every oz of gold that they can find, not to enrich themselves directly from holding gold, but to switch to a cashless society and ensure that there is insufficient gold left as an alternative to fiat cash ? Of course , gold is not rationed by weight , but by price, but practically there is a point at which the units of gold become too small to effectively assay for the consumer.
They do really hate the junk, because their printathon ponzi looting scheme is a far more effective wealth creator for them, even if it is terminal for the greater economy. That's what parasites do. They will milk it as long as it lasts, and they will squeeze every last drop out of it.

They operate on these and all other boards where they feel opposition exists. They are obvious if you wish to see. IMO They scream the loudest for (IM)moderation, censorship and banning. You know who they are.

The problem with these knuckle dragging Marxists(now reinvented as neo-liberal conservatives, when their last attempt at revolution failed) ,bent on overthrow, is that they are too stupid to understand economics, it seems. Or is it, too greedy to care ?
Their entire premise is built on capitalism being a voracious growth monster that will eventually consume the entire planet. Not that they care for the planet , only themselves. Their carbon crap is just another financial derivative and tax opportunity.
That form of so-called capitalism , which was ironically created by their own Ponzi financiers , is not capitalism but fascism. Crony capitalism, by definition.
Free market capitalism is the rationing of resources by price, brought about by innovation and improving productivity. Free market capitalism is,as Schumpeter explained, "Creative Destruction". Free market capitalism
preserves scarce resources, destroys old inefficiencies and switches to new innovative resources if scarce resources are priced out of the economy. Replacement, not addition to, of the outdated and inefficient by the more efficient. eg aircraft that can fly further and further per unit
of fuel are demanded by airlines whose margins are under pressure by competition. Aircraft crashes cannot be countenanced, as far as is humanly possible. Maintenance must be regularly done, new aircraft must replace
old models, because if an airline has a crash the future passengers vote with their feet and it goes out of business. Innovation and efficiency of resource use is pressured into existence by the market and the old stuff
is recycled and is gone. South Africa used to have plastic bags littered all over the place, until industry started paying for collection to recycle them. Thousands of jobs were created and now not a plastic bag in sight.
If is the neo-conservative model of govt protection for monopoly businesses, for cronies, that causes sloth and lack of productivity and innovation and a squander of scarce resources. It is the "money as debt" model of the printing of unlimited debt by monopoly, govt protected
financial agents that causes the feedback control signaling of free rates to break. Unlimited , otherwise uneconomic enterprises that should die, stay alive and just keep devouring resources in an orgy of malinvestment. Unlimited , fresh money out of thin air to fund an unlimited orgy of
squander. Market discipline is dismantled by the greed of neo-liberal financiers. That is why they must always conquer more lands to procure more assets to offset the economic damage their fascist economy produces. Permanent war and misery is what they spread. And then they blame
Capitalism !? We(millions who now have access to the knowledge for the first time via the net) know their game.

After reading your posts, the American public with 1/2 a brain would vote 100% for Boherner over you. The only press you are getting is on Voy and he is Worldwide in major newscasts and papers.
But of course you leftie Putin and Castro lovers can be expected to show disdain for people who strive to maintain a democracy.
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?
The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY ???
Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America 's history."
AN AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RESPONSE
Dear Mr. Obama:
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence ?
Bill of Rights?
Didn't think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England ? No.
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No, they did not.
In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?
Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?
There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?
Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?
Where were Muslims during World War II?
They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?
If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East . No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network's that day. Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims whose asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America ...
Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.
And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan .
Also, don't forget the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15.2013 was done by 2 Muslim Brothers. That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America
EVERY AMERICAN MUST READ THIS !!
Be sure to SEND IT TO ALL.
Muslim Heritage, my ass.
And if you don't share this message,
you are part of the problem

Insider buying at gold mining companies is surging significantly of late.

Approximately a dozen Native actors and actresses, as well as the Native cultural advisor, left the set of Adam Sandler’s newest film production, The Ridiculous Six, on Wednesday. The actors, who were primarily from the Navajo nation, left the set after the satirical western’s script repeatedly insulted native women and elders and grossly misrepresented Apache culture.
Elephant garlic (Allium ampeloprasum var. ampeloprasum) is a plant belonging to the onion genus. It is not a true garlic, but actually a variant of the garden leek. It has a tall, solid, flowering stalk and broad, flat leaves much like those of the leek, but forms a bulb consisting of very large, garlic-like cloves. The flavor of these, while not exactly like garlic, is much more similar to garlic than to leeks. The flavor is milder than garlic, and much more palatable to some people than garlic when used raw as in salads. ~ wiki

Not sure of the 'supplement Ca-D-Glucarate' is exactly one of the components of Hyaluronic Acid, since I've seen only NAG referenced to HA, but not also Ca-D-G, which is usually referenced for detoxification and modulation of excess estrogen. And because there are some other compounds which sound similar to D-glucarate. Some of these are used medically, but not as supplements. Their application and toxity is different, etc.
However, it might be interesting to examine whether the two products linked above (incl. some other company brand) would be useful together, etc.
In the extracellular matrices of vertebrate tissues, hyaluronan has evolved as the backbone for the assembly of a family of proteoglycans into large, soluble, multimolecular aggregates. Aggregation involves lectin-like interactions that are highly specific for hyaluronan and provides an unusual example of one type of polyanion being assembled on another. A small link protein, structurally related to the proteoglycan, is important in stabilizing the aggregate. The link-module responsible for hyaluronan-binding of link protein and the proteoglycans is also found on other proteins, such as CD-44 and TSG-6. Its structure has been determined and shown to be related to that of the mammalian C-type family of proteins, but it differs in that its carbohydrate-binding properties are not calcium dependent. Proteins containing the link module are the major ligands for hyaluronan in the extracellular matrices of higher animals. "

Grains could only be staples when agriculture arrived 10,000 years ago, and for most only much, much more recently. That is nothing in genetic time.
Before grains were aggregated by agriculture, the energy equation for gathering and eating grains was negative. Ie it required more energy to gather sparse grains than you could recover from then eating them. Man evolved to eat the greatest aggregators of grains that had the digestive systems to extract all the nutrients from the grains, animals.

the trouble is the SMkt could likely run up huge into September about the time when the devaluation of the dollar happens by 30%. By that time there will be no silver or gold available to buy, either because there is no supply or because of an executive order. And if you move money to a bank account, don't think you can get cash, because they've already banned that. And while you're waiting what to buy with a credit card, the US dollar will devalue by another 30%.
About the best thing a feller could do is plant a large garden and fruit trees. However, that better be located in wilderness because they will be seizing private property soon enough. They'll either just take it, or lien it away. ... Morever, don't plan on canning any of your produce or fruit because an executive order disallowed that because it competes with the processed food companies owned by WarrenBuffet.

I’ve mentioned before that investing is, on one level, an emotional process. If investors wish to be successful, they must learn to recognize and control the emotions that can sometimes interfere with rational, objective investment decisions.
Of all the emotions investors must wrestle with, overconfidence is likely the most dangerous. Overconfidence can lead to “blind spots”: Investors don’t think about the full risk they’re taking on, or they ignore obvious signs that suggest now is the time for caution.

Minsky(the computer scientist) -- ellix, 10:06:31 04/23/15 Thu
History is full of experts prognosticating on the future with laughable results.
"Patent Office Commissioner, Henry Ellsworth. In it Ellsworth states, "The advancement of the arts, from year to year, taxes our credulity and seems to presage the arrival of that period when human improvement must end." This quote was apparently then mispresented and attributed to Duell, who held the same office in 1899."
If such is to occur, it will be because, through technology, we have taken up residence with god, who, apparently, has founded the universe to actualise and amuse him/herself-- in otherwords, a hobby.
It always comes down to a lack of imagination. There is nothing magical about the human brain except that we do not understand the how of its intimate functions. It may be simply a matter of the number of neurons and interconnections or it may be that elements of quantum physics play a role.
Personally I suspect that the essence of being lies elsewhere whilst the brain merely serves as a modulator or channel through which the spirit (for lack of a better word) manifests itself for better or worse.

I ain't talking about somebody taking advantage of a bitcoin system of finance. Instead talking about bitcoin becoming a thing unto itself.
There's a movie from probably the late 1970s whereby they put computers in control of the nuclear defenses. Then the Soviets and Chinese do the same. ... But then suddenly these separate computers begin synching and working together. These computers begin to dictate where people should live for purposes of the climate/ecology (sound familiar to AlGore?, it should). . . . The computer solution was sought as a way to avoid human mistakes and an evil dictator starting a nuclear war. But then the computers supervened the situation and became more than what was.
I was recently wondering about this French philosopher named Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908–1961), who succeeds Sartre and Martin Heidegger. What Ponty does is reject the notion taken from Kant, by others, that human conciousness is almost wholly goverened by rules. Incidentally, this notion is what guides a lot of A.I. to this day. Ponty instead talks about perception (conciousness) being embodied. Consequently there is a robust sensibility in Ponty's writings which take Heidegger but ground him in the body.
Hubert Dreyfus is a famous philosopher at UC Berkley. Dreyfus is to Merleau-Ponty & Heidegger what Carl Sagan was to Astro-cosmology. Dreyfus has argued, since the late 1950s, that the trajectory A.I. is on will not yield an intelligence like human intelligence, but something other. He says to reproduce something like human intelligence one would need an embodied being that has been enculturated (society upbringing), & etc.
Today it seems A.I. is making tremendous progress by all the news accounts and by what people like Hawking, Gates and "Woz" are warning about it.
Taking together Dreyfus and these opinions about A.I. making tremendous;y frightening progress, would suggest that what we shall get might at first appear quite similar to us, but then turn out quite differently . . . kinda like that crazy girlfriend experience played by Glenn Close vv. Michael Douglass (1987).
I mention all this obviously because of the palpable relation of bitcoin (in all its applicable manifestations, incl as currency trade vehicle) to A.I.
I wonder if should bitcoin become something of a coin of the realm and truly transform banking and financial services in the big way as Smythe and ReggieMiddleton forsee, what if it turns out to be even less friendly than the current system?
I could envision a scenario where the bitcoin becomes self-reflective (for lack of a better phrase) and begins to disallow transactions. .... Already it has "memory", which is the blockchain of historic transactions. . . . If it were to become entrenched and linked into most everything, etc. etc, and, furthermore, if its modality is utilized elsewhere (such is being developed as we speak), then one could imagine a science fiction situation where the virtual world becomes the emperor and begins to suppress world population via economics/finance.
@bitcoins -- Smythe (), 01:48:03 04/23/15 Thu
the network consensus problem is a problem with only a statistical solution. It can only approach 100% certainty. It is encapsulated by a problem called the Byzantine generals' problem, where two generals leading two separate armies, geographically apart, need to attack simultaneously to defeat an enemy. To coordinated the time they must send messengers to each other conveying their readiness, and each must return messages acknowledging receipt. But how do they know the messengers are legitimate and not enemy spoofs ?
It turns out to be a difficult problem. It took more than 20 years to solve. That was the bitcoin breakthrough, ensuring that only those messengers who were committed enough to do more work than others, would be considered legit . Once you have network consensus, the range of applications that can use that trusted network is limitless.

the target T is mathematically adjusted, given the current computing power of the network, to make it likely that the problem will be solved in approx 10 minutes, yielding a steady state of about 6 every hour. That is 6 confirmations of a transaction are likely every hour. That is considered to be enough confirmations to prove the transaction (although usually 2 are considered practically enough).
T is adjusted downwards to increase the difficulty. (the smaller a number the less whole(hex) numbers less than that number)

@bitcoin -- Smythe (), 23:29:19 04/22/15 Wed
securing the network consensus (ie securing its non counterfeitability) IS what gives bitcoin value(along with its fungibility, portability, durability etc)
in a nutshell to secure network consensus,
The mathematical problem/puzzle/equation
that must be solved is this:
Find a number such that the double
SHA-256 hash of the block header,
which includes the number, is less
than the target.
The target is mathematically determined by the difficulty.
SHA256(SHA256(H, N)) < T, where H is the
header, N is the solution (included as part of
the header), and T is the target.
Here is the current target (in hex):
If you look at block #353192 ( https://
blockchain.info/block-height/353192 ) you
will see that N is 3813908736 and the result
of SHA256(SHA256(H, 3813908736)) is
which is less than the target.
The entity most likely to solve such a computing intensive problem is the network with the most computing power. That is , the majority of the bitcoin network and that would most likely be the group that would most likely want to secure the network. Bad actors are squeezed out.

" In general, conferring resistance to plants for a susceptible insect the selected lectin should not be native to the plant, i.e., the lectin must come from a species other than the plant being transformed. However, in species that produce toxic lectins but not in sufficient amount as to kill insects, it may be preferable to insert a gene of the native lectin under strong constitutive promoter to cause over production, thus achieving insecticidal level. Alternatively, where a plant produces native lectin but the lectin is not
produced or not distributed to tissues which are normally infested by insects, a tissue specific promoter can be used to provide localized expression or over production. "

Wisconsin’s Shame: ‘I Thought It Was a Home Invasion’
. . .
(but wait .... there's much more to this story, its
IMO, Amazingly well written, and it even starts connecting the constellation of data points. The last part here is exquisite:
. . .
And so, almost five years after their secret beginning, the John Doe proceedings are nearly dead — on “life support,” according to one Wisconsin pundit — but incalculable damage has been done, to families, to activist organizations, to the First Amendment, and to the rule of law itself.
In international law, the Western world has become familiar with a concept called “lawfare,” a process whereby rogue regimes or organizations abuse legal doctrines and processes to accomplish through sheer harassment and attrition what can’t be accomplished through legitimate diplomatic means. The Palestinian Authority and its defenders have become adept at lawfare, putting Israel under increasing pressure before the U.N. and other international bodies.
The John Doe investigations are a form of domestic lawfare, and our constitutional system is ill equipped to handle it. Federal courts rarely intervene in state judicial proceedings, state officials rarely lose their array of official immunities for the consequences of their misconduct, and violations of First Amendment freedoms rarely result in meaningful monetary damages for the victims.
As Scott Walker runs for president, the national media will finally join the Wall Street Journal in covering John Doe. Given the mainstream media’s typical bias and bad faith, they are likely to bring a fresh round of pain to the targets of the investigation; the cloud of suspicion will descend once again; even potential favorable court rulings by either the state supreme court or the U.S. Supreme Court will be blamed on “conservative justices” taking care of their own.
Conservatives have looked at Wisconsin as a success story, where Walker took everything the Left threw at him and emerged victorious in three general elections. He broke the power of the teachers’ unions and absorbed millions upon millions of dollars of negative ads. The Left kept chanting, “This is what democracy looks like,” and in Wisconsin, democracy looked like Scott Walker winning again and again.
Yet in a deeper way, Wisconsin is anything but a success. There were casualties left on the battlefield — innocent citizens victimized by a lawless government mob, public officials who brought the full power of their office down onto the innocent.
Governors come and go. Statutes are passed and repealed. Laws and elections are important, to be sure, but the rule of law is more important still. And in Wisconsin, the rule of law hangs in the balance — along with the liberty of citizens.
As I finished an interview with one victim still living in fear, still shattered by the experience of nearly losing everything simply because she supported the wrong candidate at the wrong time, I asked whether she had any final thoughts. “Just one,” she replied. “I’m hoping for accountability, that someone will be held responsible so that they’ll never do this again.” She paused for a moment and then, with voice trembling, said: “No one should ever endure what my family endured.”

looking level to oneself out towards the horizon is still looking through the sky, just not overhead. There are ways in which you are still anthropomorphizing God.
Telly Savalas had a saying, "if you think God is not bigger than you, then probably you are trying to get people to worship you when you run around telling people 'who loves ya baby'."

one question I have is if the body has a workaround substitutability of K1 v. K2. I.e., it might the case that in deficiency states of one, the other can play a role. Or if something else steps in to play the role.
usually the human body has several pathways and backup systems.
[e.g., in an obscure pathway, arachodonic acid (the primary fatty acid in animal fat, what you get from eating a burger) can be transformed into Omega 3 fatty acids. Whereas the common notion is that Omega 3s have essential status and must be directly sourced in the diet.]
BB -- Carmack, 11:22:18 04/21/15 Tue -- Bullishonbronze (), 16:53:03 04/21/15 Tue
extremely important always to distinguish between K1 v. K2. Neither their nutrient source nor their physiological application is the same.
The Japanese are the most knowlegeable about vitamin K2. This is because of their food staple natto, which is a source of it. (intestinal flora is said to be a source .... assuming one has a healthy probiotic culture in the gut)
Much has been posted here regarding K2. Whereas K1 is sourced in green vegetables, and it is primarily the coagulant factor in blood (although it might also help produce the collagen fiber web in bone, as well as having an involvement in immune inflammatory response. I used to notice a calming down of the inflammatory process with episodic use of K1, and I think there is some literature to support this role, in that it influences one of PGE factors involved in inflammation. (Keep in mind that inflammation is not patently bad, but actually is a part of immune defense as well as body repair. It's just when it is overdone as in chronic pahthologies.)
I could be wrong about this, but a bone might be thought of like a woman's silk stocking to which plaster-of-paris has been applied. The K1 creating the (collagen) stocking; the K2 facilitating mineral deposition onto it. ....
But inasmuch as K2 places minerals like Ca, its deficiency might lead to Ca in unwelcome places like arteries and as dental calculus.
Coumadin, the commonly presdcribed blood thinner, operates by interupting vitamins K. I asked about its interruption of K2 also, not just desireable of K1, and the physiologist said that the time for the deleterious effect pales both in light of its usefulness and given the patient's elderly age. But obviously, then, a younger person on blood thinners might ask about supplemental K2 when on coumadin. .... He also said the advantage of coumadin over other blood thinners is that if the patient has another medical problem--such as a severed limb, vitamin K1 can be injected and immediately over-ride the plasma coumadin--but for other thinners there isn't recourse, hence the patient bleeds to death.
There's a best selling book on Amzn about taking huge amounts of D to cure just about everything. The author points out the need to also take K2. But he also says that too much K2--that is, not in balance with D--could result in Ca deficiency in the plasma (remember that Ca is a blood pH alkailizer).
So, D causes increasing Ca absorption and retention, and K2 reduces its presence in blood plasma. So there is a balance going on.
It should be also noted that Ca is involved in cell signalling and gate channels especially in the heart and also nerve cells. Radical changes in how the body uses Ca can lead to heart palpitations, etc.
Such problems are likely not immediately noticeable, unless one is doing mega supplementation or depending upon the sensitivities of that particular person. But they probably could develop serreptitiously over time to anyone. .... Some people therefore cycle on and off supplements as a possible strategy. Or they get tests for their levels along the way.
Do your own due dilligence, talk to your doctor, etc.

I should really add this one given what we know about 59 percent of Clinton's appointments. Objectively, this is the same gang that took us to where we are today, stripped of our savings and assets and in many cases impoverished by a group of people who refuse to consider themselves as a people apart who have wandered for many hundreds of years.

I take 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 each day, per my doctor' advice.
Since I am taking a combo of Glucosamine & Chondroitin, and I have about a year' supply or more in my medicine cabinet, I simply can't throw it away. I have printed your today' post at 01:28:15. I want to make sure that I do not forget. Thanks. Other supplements you mentioned may be a problem for me. My doctor has eliminated any B-complex and some other supplements, because of the current condition of my kidney/liver (I can't remember which one at this time). So, I will come up with your ideas later in my kidney was not in stage 4.

It is only the pronouncement of yet another idiot who thinks he has suddenly become a wise old man by owning an investment inflated in a bubble.
other thing that helps is vitamin D -- Bullishonbronze, 01:31:19 04/21/15 Tue
not only less creek joints, but had one of those bumps on a bone which is some kind of calcium cyst. The D reduced that by 75%. Also take D with vitamin K2 so as not to get calcium misplaced. ... And the fat soluble vitamins are synergistic, so make sure getting sufficient A and E-complex in the diet. One way to get E-complex is rice bran oil, red palm oil and palm dates (fruit).
And with NAG your body can make hyaluronic acid, which is the lubricant in joints. To buy hyaluronic acid as supplement is expensive. NAG by Jarrow is inexpensive.
I never got any relief from supplemental glucosamine or supplemental hyaluronic acid. But it seemed to me that NAG did provide some relief -- less creeky shoulders.
I would take with vitamin C. And when taking vitamin C remember it's only absorbable to about 90mg / hr. And it is helpful to get bioflavonoids along with that (or eat with fruit of some color). Also make sure you get enough lysine, proline in the diet (something vegetarians might not).

Is there a difference between "Glucosamine Sulfate 2KCL" and "N-Acetyl Glucosamine"? I have been taking the former with "Chondroitin Sulfate Sodium" [750 mg former and 600 mg latter; each twice a day] for years. I also take 2 tsps. of MSM.
A couple of months ago, I added 3 grams of "Chicken Sternum Cartilage Collagen Type II". THIS one reduced my OA pains sufficiently enough that I reduced my Serrapeptase enzyme from 360,000 IU to 240,000 IU/per day. I plan to continue taking all this for the time being.
The reason I wanted a less expensive option is that it is so darn expensive, what with us living on retirement income.
THANKS for taking interest in the subject. I normally post for two reasons: (a) somebody may have a better answer, and (b) my experience may help someone else. Sharing an experience is better. After all, we all learn from each other' experience.
I have often thought that.
Recent extensive travel through the US confirms your statement. Major cities are filthy. Homeless are everywhere. Gang graffiti is the new art form. Not too many other people out and about. (ya think?)
From the highway, I-40 eastbound from NV to VA, you could see one boarded up town after another. Airports closed. While the highway was maintained, city streets are in shambles. Here are some other trip highlights.
SLC, UT.–Pollution capital of the US, mega homeless.
Las Vegas–Filthy, Uber foreclosures, gangs, drivebys, tent cities along highway.
Kingman, AZ–no English, desolate, (don’t stop)
Flagstaff, AZ–clean air, nice, Uber expensive (trying to keep out trash) good water.
Texas– Looks nuked, big influx Hispanic, Austin is ok. Big cities dangerous. Keep going.
OK, AK–Dirty, dangerous. Tons of poor folk, everywhere. (Stay on military bases or keep going)
Memphis, TN–O..M..G..If you value your life, keep going. Went to the Zoo, am still alive. Thugs wandering around in droves.
W.VA–Used to be nice, countryside is beautiful. Lots of mobile homes now.
VA.Beach, VA–becoming or is, the most dangerous city in america. This place is beautiful but gang activity has taken over. The most violent thugs live here. Cops put up search lights to illuminate beach front at night. (I lived here as the gangs came, I left) The water is so polluted you can smell it. The ocean waves are dark brown. Lyme disease and rabies are a big problem. The feds have heavy surveillance here.
The whole East coast is a mess, bigger cities are dangerous. Forgot to mention empty commercial property/abandoned houses everywhere. This is a huge problem in the area where I live also.
This was my last trip. What used to be fun is now life-threatening. You know, everything this guy says on this site is true. And from what I have seen, when ANY kind of collapse, or heaven forbid a water or food shortage emerges, you will see what the “third world people” are capable of..

Uncle Buck is swell.
Interest rates are headed nowhere but down.
Peak oil ain't peak at all.
incidence of cancer is said to be correlated with when the USDA mandated fortification of flour. Among the fortificants was 'folic acid'.
Folic acid is a growth factor, utilized in DNA/RNA. Furthermore, supplemental folic acid is said to be not quite same molecule as folate found in vegetable greens.
Thiamin is another growth factor. Most vitamin products have ginormous quantities of it. In fact, is is virtually impossible to by a thiamin tablet at the RDA level or anything close to it.
Beta-carotene's potential harmfulness has been long known, esp for somokers. And the problem here is that in carrots, beta-carotene is one of many other carotenoids. Perhaps they are syngergistic. Taking just the one is not balanced.
Same applies to vitamin E. As supplement it is most regularly found as alpha-tocopherol--not only in supplements but as when found added to any kind of processed food. However, vitamin E is actually a complex of tocopherols and tocotrienols. And it is known taking much alpha-tocopherol in the absence of all the others, leads to greater problems.
" Because of their precise carbohydrate specificities, lectins can be blocked by simple sugars and oligosaccharides. Wheat lectin, for example, is blocked by the sugar N-acetyl glucosamine and its polymers. "
" Another suspect lectin disease is rheumatoid arthritis. The normal human IgG molecule possesses carbohydrate side chains, which terminate with galactose. In rheumatoid arthritis much of the galactose is missing, so that the subterminal sugar—N-acetyl glucosamine—is exposed instead. These deficient IgG molecules feature strongly in the circulating immune complexes that cause fever and symptoms. In diet responsive rheumatoid arthritis one of the commonest trigger foods is wheat, and wheat lectin is specific for N-acetyl glucosamine—the sugar that is normally hidden but exposed in rheumatoid arthritis. This suggests that N-acetyl glucosamine oligomers such as chitotetraose (derived from the chitin that forms crustacean shells) might be an effective treatment for diet associated rheumatoid arthritis. Interestingly, the health food trade has already siezed on N-acetyl glucosamine as an antiarthritic supplement. "
" Many lectins are powerful allergens, and prohevein, the principal allergen of rubber latex, is one. It has been engineered into transgenic tomatoes for its fungistatic properties, so we can expect an outbreak of tomato allergy in the near future among latex sensitive individuals. "

I loved Telly Savalas when I was a boy. Could not wait for the TV show. His persona had a natural love of self without reifying it into some kind of object that others must worship. Instead, it was like: "hey, it's me, Telly, who loves you baby."
I guess nowadays all there is are Clooney clones. These are the opposite dynamic Telly was bringing to the table. With these there is not a natural love of self, but one who is as much in adoration of the object as are the fans supposedly.
Do you catch my drift?
While I do very much like the old actors who had the machismo in there persona--Wayne and Bronson--I also liked Telly a lot. Yeh, he was macho, but it was more of a macho sexuality. He was principally manly unto the women, whereas the others I mentioned were manly vis a vis the men.
And by the way, I'm not so interested in the actual life person. But the persona they project into the camera. That's the only empirical data I got anyway since I never met these people, never played cards with them.
On a different note. I can remember about the age of 8 when I was in Glendale and they were filming a TV show, detective show, out front of the house we were visiting. I got a chance to meet the lead actor. I can't think of his name, but if I said it you would be familiar. He was one of those actors who was always working, in lots of things, but not a huge name.
Anyway, being philosophical at that young age, I was able to be concious of the experience of meeting someone famous and a TV celebrity. And back then it was probably a bigger deal since TV then was it, no internet, etc.
It turns out this actor was a real regular man. And he shook my hand and spoke with the adults I was with and was cordial. And yet all the while I was marveling at the dynamic of him being just a man and at the same time having this mega-personality wrought by TV. I sensed, perhaps psychically, that he was aware of what I was thinking--or was it that he was such a grounded person that even he was aware of the dynamic of ordinary people meeting not him but his stage persona. He probably sensed that I had the charism to see him just as he were.
I've had two or more occassions in life with some brush with personal celebrity. One involved getting into the newspapers and TV news as a hero. The other had to do with leadership, a position I had. . . . I also did a little bit of stage acting in college. The theater was small so you could really feel the connection with the audience.
This whole area, this dynamic of the person, used to really fascinate me. I spent some time in sales and met some salesmen who really had the gift of mesmerizing.
But I haven't thought about this dynamic in a very long while. And I don't see much of it that is the real thing anymore in public life. It all seems generated by marketing departments and political science rather than occuring naturally by destiny and charisma.
When you do spot the real thing, or when you have a personal adventure with it in your personality, it is rather amazing. It is a kind of reality that surpasses most anything else. I almost want to say it is a religious experience. And it is easy to say how dangerous it can become for anyone having this power or for those, the audience, who are put under its spell.

what makes Ayn Rand superior to many today is this, her ability to acknowledge a debt to a philosopher with whom she undoubtedly would have several disagreements--e.g., something as basic as the nature of charity (which turns upside down in her little book The Virtue of Selfishness (1964).

Vice spending leads the way, both in terms of inclination and ability to spend. If luxury good spending is sensitive to shifts in the economic winds, vice is even more so. One thing that sets it apart from other types of consumer spending (besides being frequently illegal) is that itï¿½s typically a cash-based transaction. You canï¿½t buy pot with a credit card (not yet anyhow). Another distinguishing factor is that vices are not cheap. A prostitute costs almost two days of after-tax wages. Gambling in Vegas is potentially more. The consumerï¿½s stack of money has to be a certain height before they can get on that ride. The vice economy lives and dies according to cash flow; by how much money is burning a hole in the consumerï¿½s pocketï¿½
"Now aware that both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are substantial immune reactions triggered by exposed collagen,219,20 scientists sought ways to target the common immune origin of these joint-destroying diseases. The ideal prevention would be to re-educate the immune system to differentiate between exposed collagen fibers and foreign bodies. This would inhibit overreaction to proteins normally found in joint cartilage, and prevent immune-mediated attacks on the joints. Fortunately, a number of studies have shown that a form of a natural collagen does just that!" Life Extension
"Studies show that exposure to small amounts of type II chicken collagen can inhibit immune overreaction to exposed collagen proteins, substantially reducing the pain and disability of osteoarthritis4,6-8 and rheumatoid arthritis.9-12 In one study, an unheard-of 14% of patients taking undenatured type II collagen experienced complete remission of their rheumatoid arthritis!9." Life Extension
If the collagen is not working IMO do the complete protocol to be 99% sure of nailing it. OA CAN BE many many DIFFERENT things. They ALL will cause almost the same symptoms. Incidentaly if you want plenty of free chicken collagen just chew all the gristle and bone ends off your chicken bones and the huge amounts of gristle from the breast bone. I have been doing it ever since I learned of chicken collagen.

Someone here posted info. on it, but he made it himself at home. I can't do that!
Anyone who knows about the collagen curing OA, please discuss it with me. Is "Chicken" part in the name necessary? Will "shark" do the same? Also, some vendors are offering Type 1&3. I don't know what difference it might make! Some are offering with large amount of Vitamin C (why?). Others have chondroitin, glucosamine, hyaluronic acid.
