Sales Fatigue in America's Real Estate Market

While there is little doubt that the housing market has come off its post-Great Recession lows, several factors show that the current situation is far from healthy and gives us a sense of just how bad the Great Recession was compared to recessions going back to the early 1970s.  One of those less than stellar factors is the number of new single family homes sold.    Here is a graph from FRED showing the number of new single family homes sold in the United States:   September's level of 467,000 was the highest since the end of the latest recession, up very slightly from 466,000 in August 2014.   Here's a closeup graph showing what has happened to new single family home sales since the end of the Great Recession:   Notice the tail of the graph?  From...

Two RAF Typhoon jets escort Latvian cargo plane to Stansted airport

Two RAF Typhoon jets escorted a Latvian Antonov cargo plane to Stansted Airport following a loss of communication with the aircraft.  The jets were scrambled as a precaution and the Latvian registered cargo plane was diverted and landed at Stansted at 5.20pm.

Will Ukraine Commit Economic Suicide?

Will Ukraine Commit Economic Suicide?

Ukraine is on the brink of committing economic suicide after imposing a crippling 55 percent tax on private gas producers, while parliament prepares to vote on next year's budget, which aims for a continuation of the same. The Oct. 14 budget vote—which is already a month late—is a major condition for Ukraine's next credit tranche from the European Union, but if the 2015 budget goes through as proposed, it will decimate independent gas production, remove any potential for Ukrainian energy independence and deal a further blow to the already struggling economy. "Kiev's attempt at fiscal discipline to fund the war effort in the east and stave off an economic crisis is not working, and the end result is going to be economic suicide," Robert Bensh, majority shareholder of Cub Energy, Ukraine's fourth-largest...

Lessons of North Korea for Iran Nuclear Talks

Middle East, Monday, October 27th 2014

Lessons of North Korea for Iran Nuclear Talks

Among the arguments marshaled by those  wary of a nuclear agreement with Iran is that past efforts to negotiate away North Korea’s nuclear weapons program failed. Iran’s regime, they argue, is just as untrustworthy as North Korea’s and what’s more, Wendy Sherman, the chief U.S. negotiator with Iran, was also involved in talks with the North Koreans under the Bill Clinton administration and thus is somehow inherently suspect. The critics sidestep massive differences between a small hereditary dictatorship that has already conducted nuclear tests and a large oil-rich country that has repeatedly stated that it will never develop nuclear weapons. Also, Sherman, who became involved with North Korea in Clinton’s second term, had nothing to do with negotiating a landmark nuclear agreement that was signed 20 years ago this week. Still the criticism is worth examining... Read more

Soros Signals Argentina’s Shale is Biggest Place to Be

One of the world’s legendary investors is upping his bet on Argentina’s shale oil and gas industry in a show of confidence for shale production in South America’s largest unconventional prize —and a big boost for both supermajors and smaller players making big waves in the heart of new discovery areas. George Soros has doubled his stake in YPF SA, the state-owned oil company in Argentina, which sits atop some of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources, and is about to get even larger following a new discovery over the last couple of weeks of a second key shale play.  Argentina holds an estimated 27 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil and 802 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas, much of it located in the Vaca Muerta, an...

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

QBs Recovering from Offseason Surgeries as NFL Training Camps Open

It has been an off-season of recuperation for a number of NFL quarterbacks who underwent surgery in recent months.

He said his relationship with an unnamed “woman in her late 20s” began two years ago, and over time included “role-play,... Read more

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

The debate over which energy storage technology will prove to be the best in the long-term is woefully misguided. Many technologies have been tested in the field or been fully installed, but their real-world applications have created constant questions around a number of fixed themes: the three-points concern cost, technology, and potential environmental impact, as well as the need for specific regulation and end-of-life management. Here, engineers have run into the dilemma of energy storage technology. It is difficult for any energy storage method, at least at the current stage of development, to produce the amounts of power and energy required at a cost-effective price. However, passing judgment on energy storage by using this equation alone is simply incorrect. After all, we do not expect renewable energy to provide a one-size-fits-all solution... Read more

Office 365 Customers Get Unlimited But Flawed OneDrive

Microsoft is giving away unlimited storage but they will have to improve OneDrive before it matters By Stephen Pate – Microsoft Office 365 customers can now use OneDrive with unlimited cloud storage. That follows the announcement in the spring of 1 TB OneDrive storage. Does it mean anything to you? When you get a gift that is worthless, the French say “pas un cadeau” – not a gift. Like many products related to The Cloud, OneDrive is a great concept – share files anywhere on any device – that is flawed in execution. When Microsoft upped my limit to 1 TB, it encouraged me to use OneDrive more. I had up to 400GB stored on OneDrive until August when I scaled back to only occasional use. OneDrive is a deeply flawed product that follows the... Read more

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

When you’re all cozy in a friendship you can totally relax. Even going to school is more fun because your friend is there. But when you move to a school where you know no one, and your bff friend from your old school stops acting like a friend, then nothing feels right. I recently got this email from a girl who is in that sad place: Where do I fit it?!  The Girls' Friendship Q&A Book, by Annie Fox, iIllustration by Erica DeChavez © 2014, Annie Fox and Erica DeChavez Hey Terra, Last year I moved to a new place. Later I heard that my best friend was best friends with some new girl. That girl is apparently really popular and cool (and also kinda mean) and in one year’s time my bff has become friends with all the poplar kids... Read more

Matthew Mcconaughey: What’s So Funny?

Matthew McConaughey maintained the deadpan look on his face as he walked through the airport with his wife Camila Alves. Maybe the paparazzi were teasing him about Jim Carrey’s SNL impersonation of him in his Lincoln car ads and he wasn’t amused. Ironically, the car the couple left in was NOT a Lincoln. {ads1}Photo Credit: Pacific Coast News Click HERE to read more from Janet Charlton Read more

Case Of The Missing Bob Dylan Slip-Case

Early buyers of Bob Dylan The Lyrics: Since 1962 are not happy when the art book came without the promised slip-case – The Lyrics now selling for $500 By Stephen Pate – Updated – When bobdylan.com, the official website for the bard of the 60’s, announced the new book Bob Dylan The Lyrics: Since 1962, they advertised the special edition with a slip-case and showed it in the photo. “Almost 1,000 pages and 13 pounds, this slip-case edition is roughly the size of an LP record, and is being published as a limited edition.” Customers who got their copies of the book from Amazon.com have complained the slip case was missing.

Music Review Kill Dil

Music :: Filmi, Thursday, October 16th 2014

Expectations: Shaad Ali is known for a good music sense - and has a great tuning with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Music: The acoustic-heavy, almost R.D. Burman-esque title-song 'Kill Dil' (Sonu Nigam, Shankar Mahadevan), a breezy, instrument-dominated groovy track, reminds us in parts of the epic title-music of Sholay. While Gulzar recites the introductory verse (which he also does in two more tracks) Sonu Nigam and Shankar Mahadevan sing with Kishore Kumar-esque abandon in the largely meaningless track that works while listening only because of its infectious rhythm and pace. We liked the sitar riffs in 'Happy Budday' (Sukhwinder Singh-Sonu Nigam) where Gulzar uses the imaginative line, 'Bas Aashiqon Pe Rahe Curfew' before taking a tangential look at the occasion. Sukhwinder sounds miscast in the song, as his rendition is somehow too harsh for a... Read more

Are Mutual Funds Being Haunted by Shadow Banking and Illiquidity?

In the October 2014 edition of the IMF's Global Financial Stability Report, there is a very interesting paragraph buried on page (ix) of the Executive Summary:   "The share of credit instruments held in mutual fund portfolios has been growing, doubling since 2007, and now amounts to 27 percent of global high-yield debt.  At the same time, the fund management industry has become more concentrated. The top 10 global asset management firms now account for more than $19 trillion in assets under management.... Read more
