Re: As if the Cruise-ship needed this bad press

I agree with you 100%. With that said, I would prefer to believe the actions of Belize were based on "an overabundance of caution" (overused phrase) in an effort to help protect their tourist industry and curtail any apprehension of [more]

Re: Fact checking the Ebola Wackos

The real stretchers have been the false assurances by Obama and the CDC about how well prepared we are to deal with Ebola infections.

Along with the Veterans Department and Secret Service, it appears that the CDC is another government

Re: Harvin to Jets

Hmm, oft-inured clubhouse cancer with a huge contract. Not very surprising. Still a loss though.

Re: sex slaves - ISIS

The difference is this; ISIS could not do what it is doing without some level of support, consent, maybe even indifference to their actions. If you compare extremists of both worlds, I'd have to point out that no one follows extremist christians ( [more]

Out of Africa

I thought the movie sucked. Finch-Hatton and Blixen are unable to make minor compromises to continue their relationship, so their relationship ends. Color me not surprised.

Re: Dropbox Hacked

Syke6,

According to their pricing page, it looks like some sort of free trial, with $12.50 per month for an individual user thereafter (or $25.00 per month per person for business).

How does their "free" version work?

Re: Deflation?

I can't understand why the Fed, Mr. Bullard and all the talking heads on bubblevision are worried about deflation, when the Consumer Price Index has not been declining except for a couple of months here and there over the last 10 years. The trend [more]

Re: Lockheed-Martin claims it has 'cold fusion'

That's hot fusion. Hot fusion reactors are always pitched as being 20 years from being feasible. This guy claims his design is only ten years away. An obvious violation of the laws of physics.

Strike price paid for off-shore wind: £155 per MWh

Re: Deflation?

Art Cashin on CNBC says that, if the WTI oil drops below $80/bbl, the fear will be deflation. He thinks the price of oil overrides everything else.

I don't understand it because, if oil prices drop, then people will have more money to buy

Re: Uh...This is big news, really big

They made a lot of claims about the F-35 too.

The F-35 worked perfectly. Its purpose was to transfer an enormous amount of money from the taxpayer to Lockheed.

Re: Bond…James Bond

I like all the Bond music in general, but I am a little partial to Skyfall which won Best Song academy award (and of course I loved the movie) and Goldfinger. If you watch/listen to all of this, check out what happened to Tom Jones.

Re: Bond…James Bond

I have a dark horse candidate for fave Bond girl, Maryam d'Abo who played Kara Milovy in the "Living Daylights." As Bond films go, LD was mediocre, but it was the best in an era of many substandard ones. Maryam was amazing.
