Nemesis in Slow Motion.

The Treasury in America has led the world in the curative process to heal the wounded monster that they had created. The rest of the world has followed suit like lambs to the slaughter. YES, we will guarantee bank deposits, YES we will inject "liquidity" back in to the banks, YES we will regulate the financial markets more, YES, we will ask the IMF to supervise the transactions in derivatives and CDO's and be the Guardian of the Free Market. Who are these guys kidding ?

The relentless selling we have seen over the past month in precious metals was kicked off by the manipulative interventions occurring right around the time of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac implosions in mid-July.

Wall Street Taking A Closer Look at Collateral Management

The collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers and the struggles of AIG have brought a gravity and urgency to counterparty risk and its sidekick, collateral management. Just as people tend not to think about insurance until they have an accident, collateral management -- the tracking and managing of the collateral that backs loans and credit-related derivatives -- was a relatively ho-hum middle-office function until the subprime crisis.

Academics warn of EU 'three strikes' back door plan

The content industry has lobbied to force internet service providers (ISPs) to disconnect users they suspect of engaging in copyright-infringing file-sharing after two warnings.

Digital rights activists have questioned the accuracy of the evidence gathered by industry against individuals and have said that the effects on a whole household of one user's actions are disproportionate.

Lost bird's 'phone call' to owner

A missing cockatiel is now safe and sound at home after confirming its own name in a phone call to its owner.

Accountant Sue Hill, who found the bird in Wrexham, was put in touch with a possible owner by a local vet.

When she called the number she let the bird listen to the voice at the other end of the phone - at which point it chirped its own name: "Smokey."

Mrs Hill said it was the first time the bird had spoken, which convinced her she had found its owner.

Oops... Female astronaut loses tool bag during Shuttle spacewalk

It's a common question voiced by many exasperated DIY enthusiasts... just where did I put my tool bag? For one astronaut, making repairs to the International Space Station, the answer was unfortunately into infinity.

Lead spacewalker Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper was working on restoring full power to the orbital outpost when she lost her vital kit, 200 miles above Earth.

The astronaut from the Endeavour shuttle had realised one of the grease guns she was using had leaked, soiling her glove.

Out Of Pure Light, Physicists Create Particles Of Matter

A team of 20 physicists from four institutions has literally made something from nothing, creating particles of matter from ordinary light for the first time. The experiment was carried out at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) by scientists and students from the University of Rochester, Princeton University, the University of Tennessee, and Stanford. The team reported the work in the Sept. 1 issue of Physical Review Letters.

Finger-pointing begins as Senate nixes auto vote

A Democratic Congress, unwilling or unable to approve a $25 billion bailout for Detroit's Big Three, appears ready to punt the automakers' fate to a lame-duck Republican president. Caught in the middle of a who-blinks-first standoff are legions of manufacturing firms and auto dealers - and millions of Americans' jobs - after Senate Democrats canceled a showdown vote that had been expected Thursday. President George W. Bush has "no appetite" to act on his own.

U.S. auto companies employ nearly a quarter-million workers, and more than 730,000 other people have jobs producing the materials and parts that go into cars. About 1 million on top of that work in dealerships nationwide. If just one of the auto giants were to go belly up, some estimates put U.S. job losses next year as high as 2.5 million.

Arts Patron Guilty in Fraud Case

DANIEL J. WAKIN NY Times

Mr. Vilar, 67, blinked when the first guilty verdict was pronounced by the foreman in a United States District courtroom but remain stone-faced. His former partner and co-defendant, Gary A. Tanaka, 65, was convicted of three of the counts.

[...]

The two men, former partners in Amerindo Investment Advisors Inc., were charged in a 12-count indictment alleging conspiracy and securities fraud, investment adviser fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. Mr. Tanaka was found guilty of conspiracy, securities fraud and investment advisor fraud.

Indian warship destroys pirate ship

An Indian warship destroyed a pirate "mother vessel" in the Gulf of Aden, the navy said Wednesday, as bandits demanded a ransom for a Saudi super-tanker seized in the most daring sea raid yet.

The Indian frigate INS Tabar, one of dozens of warships from several countries protecting shipping lanes in the area, attacked the Somali pirate ship late Tuesday after coming under fire, navy spokesman Nirad Sinha said.

Will The US Government Accept Responsibility For The Slaughter Of Over 1,000,000 Iraqis.

By Michael Schwartz
I recently received a set of questions from Le Monde Diplomatique reporter Kim Bredesen about the 2007 Project Censored story about 1,000,000 Iraqi deaths due to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. The questions and answers are, I think, useful in framing both the untold story of the slaughter in Iraq and the failure of the U.S. media to report on its extent or on U.S. culpability for the deaths of 4% of the Iraqi population.

Global liquidity crisis 'is over'

Un-named Staff Writer BBC Business News

The head of Japan's largest brokerage, Nomura Holdings, has suggested the global liquidity crisis is over.

Nomura chief executive Kenichi Watanabe said the main problem now was how to revive the real economy.

Nomura is buying bankrupt Lehman Brothers's European, Asian-Pacific and Middle Eastern operations for $2bn (£1.34bn).

Google's browser labelled a 'digital Trojan horse'

Perhaps the biggest threat to Google's increasing dominance of internet search and advertising is the rising fear, justified or not, that Google's broadening reach is giving it unchecked power.

This scrutiny goes deeper than the skeptical eye that lawmakers and the US Justice Department have given to Google's proposed ad partnership with Yahoo. Many objections to that deal are financial, and surround whether Google and Yahoo could unfairly drive up online ad prices.

Oldest nuclear family 'murdered'

By Julian Siddle
Science Reporter, BBC News

The oldest genetically identifiable nuclear family met a violent death according to analysis of remains from 4,600-year-old burials in Germany.

Writing in the journal PNAS, researchers say the broken bones of these stone age people show they were killed in a struggle.

Comparisons of DNA from one grave confirm it contained a mother, father, and their two children.

The flying car

To Timbuktu by flying car: it sounds the most unlikely journey on earth; a sci-fi voyage from the pages of Jules Verne. But this is no fantasy. The car really flies. And the journey will become reality early in the new year when two explorers set off from London in a propeller-powered dune buggy heading for the Sahara.

The G-20 Washout

As expected, the G-20 Economic Summit in Washington turned out to be a total bust. None of the problems which have pushed the global economy to the brink of disaster were resolved and none of the main players who gamed the system with their toxic securities were held accountable. Instead, the visiting dignitaries gorged themselves on stuffed quail and roast rack of lamb before settling on a toothless "Statement on Financial Markets" which accomplished absolutely nothing.

Another Act of Treason: George W. Bush 'Outed' Valerie Plame

Former Press Secretary Scott McClellan has revealed that it was George W. Bush himself who authorized Dick Cheney to 'out' Valerie Plame. When he is no longer President, Bush will not be able to 'pardon' himself for the many 'counts' of high treason that will be charged him. Bush must therefore move to pardon himself while he is still in the White House but doing so will prove his guilt! Innocent folk don't 'pardon' themselves of serious crimes.

CONFIRMED: "Bin-Ladin Hunt PHONEY"-Bush Admin NEEDED Him To JUSTIFY Military Expansionism(Juan Cole)

The USG Open Source Center translates an article from the Persian Afghan press alleging that French troops were at one point close to capturing Usamah Bin Ladin in Afghanistan, but that American forces stopped them from doing so. It says that a forthcoming French documentary containing interviews with the French soldiers provides proof for the allegation. The argument is that the Bush administration needed Bin Ladin to be at large in order to justify its military expansionism.

Change in intelligence?

Mr. Obama will not be able to change the culture of the intelligence community and restore the moral compass of the CIA unless there is a full understanding and repudiation of the operational and analytical crimes committed in the Tenet era. If Mr. Obama genuinely wants to roll back the misdeeds of Vice President Dick Cheney, restore the rule of law at the CIA and create the change that Americans want and can believe in, he should not be relying for advice on the senior officials who endorsed these shameful actions.

Spirit rover recuperating after dust storm

The Mars rover Spirit is still alive and is slowly recharging its batteries after a weekend dust storm that caused the craft's power levels to drop to an all-time low.

Rover team members were awaiting a sign this week that the craft had survived the storm, which blanketed Spirit's solar panels with dust.

During the storm, the amount of energy available to the craft dropped to an unsustainable 89 watt-hours, the lowest level seen since Spirit and its twin, Opportunity, landed on Mars with about 10 times that amount in January 2004.

Data retention laws: what they mean for ISPs

If you think you're making a private call, or sending a discreet message, think again. Under an anti-terrorism law passed in late 2001 in the wake of the atrocities of September 11, details of every website visited and the transmission of every email sent and every phone call made in the UK can be retained and made available to authorities. This may give individuals privacy concerns but for telcos and internet service providers faced with the consequent storage and retrieval requirements, it is cause for financial concern.

AIG to Pay Millions To Top Workers

American International Group plans to pay out $503 million in deferred compensation to some of its top employees, saying it must tap the funds to keep valuable workers from exiting the troubled insurance giant.

News of the payments to top AIG talent comes as the federal government has just put more money into saving the company from bankruptcy, beefing up the total public commitment to $152 billion. Meanwhile, members of Congress are questioning the company's expenditures -- including lavish business trips to resorts -- during a time when taxpayers are on the hook for the bailout.

Woman Loses $400,000 To Nigerian Email Scam

Why did this woman, a reverend and a nurse, give over $400,000 to Nigerian email scammers? It started with just $100. The emails told her a long-lost relative with the same last name had $20.5 million caught up in the banks of Nigeria. Janella Spears just had to help with a few processing fees...

As she sent the money, more and more obstacles would arise, each needing more money to solve. Driven by blind greed, she sent over $400,000 to the scammers, draining her and her husband's savings, retirement fund, mortgaged the house and put a lien on the car.

Girl sentenced for swastika lie

A German girl who won a "civic courage" award for allegedly defending an immigrant child from neo-Nazis has been found guilty of inventing the story.

The 18-year-old - named as Rebecca K - had carved a swastika on her own thigh, the court concluded, rejecting her claim that neo-Nazis had done it.

In February she had received an award from a Berlin association campaigning against far-right violence.

She claimed four men had attacked her last November in the town of Mittweida.

This is a confidential strategy paper for the November 15 G-20 summit in Washington DC. This is not a new Bretton Woods in any sense, but rather a British-steered attempt to impose the dictatorship of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on the entire planet, wiping out all hope of economic recovery, the modernization of the developing countries, and national sovereignty at the same time.

RAHM EMANUEL: Ardent Zionist called Obama’s ‘Svengali’

More sinister than Karl Rove and potentially deadlier than Dick “Darth Vader” Cheney, his name is Rahm Emanuel, and he was recently appointed chief of staff in the president-elect’s White House. This first official act should send waves of alarm through people because Barack Obama promised change, but what we’re getting is the exact same cabal that brought us 9-11 and endless war in the Middle East.

The TARP Is Dead

Think back. Think far, far back into the past. Think all the way back to the last week of September 2008. Historians tell us that at that time many Americans took leave of their senses. Despite all the evidence of their own eyes, ears, and noses, they became persuaded that the world as they had always known it stood on the verge of utter destruction. Hysterical "journalists" and "experts" on radio and television told them so. What else could they do? Because life without a flush 401(k) lay beyond their wildest imagination, they concluded that "something must be done."

Iraqis Believe Americans Bombing Them to Push Status of Forces Agreement

Some people are saying that the Americans are making the bombings to make Iraqis believe that it is very important for them to stay in Iraq, that they are still needed. The Americans say that when they
withdraw from Iraq violence will increase. Is that a threat? You can read it as a threat, or you can read it as an expectation. Some Iraqis take it as a threat.

Some people are asking: “Are the Americans punishing us with bombings because Iraq has refused to sign the SOFA?” [Status of Forces Agreement]

Gradually the firm has started expanding throughout the world, including the Gulf. “There is no debate that Rothschild is a Jewish family, but we are proud to be in this region. However, it takes time to develop a global footprint,” he says.

Baron Rothschild shares most people’s view that there is a New World Order. In his opinion, banks will deleverage and there will be a new form of global governance.

So how did the Rothschilds manage to emerge relatively unscathed from the financial meltdown? “You could say that we may have more insights than others..."

"When Israel was first created, I had a lot of admiration and respect for the Jews; now I want to throw them all into the sea."

First, the FDIC has guaranteed new, senior unsecured debt issued by a bank, thrift or holding company, which will help banks fund their operations. Debt that is issued by the end of June 2009 will be fully guaranteed by the FDIC to June 2012, which should provide investors with the comfort necessary to invest in longer-term obligations of financial institutions.

Large numbers of Nigerian children are abandoned, abused and tortured for being "witches."

"Saving Africa's Witch Children"

In some of the poorest parts of Nigeria, where evangelical religious fervor is combined with a belief in sorcery and black magic, many thousands of children are being blamed for catastrophes, death and famine: and branded witches.

Denounced as Satan made flesh by powerful pastors and prophetesses, these children are abandoned, tortured, starved and murdered: all in the name of Jesus Christ.

Americans Vote Yes for Equality Between Jews and Non-Jews Inside Israel

Election day in the United States, 2008, will be remembered in most history books as the day
Americans elected the first African-American as president. But it also deserves to go down in
history for another reason. It was the first day when Americans rejected the instructions of their
pro-Israel politicians and newspapers and instead voted for the principle that non-Jews should be
equal with Jews under the law inside Israel, and not discriminated against as they are today in
apartheid Israel.
The Somerville Divestment Project (SDP) placed Question 4 on the ballot in two state

SC priest: No communion for Obama supporters

"Voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exists constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil, and those Catholics who do so place themselves outside of the full communion of Christ's Church and under the judgment of divine law. Persons in this condition should not receive Holy Communion until and unless they are reconciled to God in the Sacrament of Penance, lest they eat and drink their own condemnation."

Bald Boomers, and The Hubris of the American Oligarch in the Age of Obama

This site has a plethora of Libertarian posters that serve up libations to the reading public. Where are they?

They have failed to point out that two bald Boomers have seized control of everyone’s economic prospects.

The Age of the American Entrepreneur has been eclipsed by The Age of the Bailouts.

What does this mean for the makeup of American society and the future of everyone’s children who will inherit it?

Consumers Don't Cause Recessions

With all the talk of consumer spending and national income, we often forget that actual production must occur before people can consume anything. It doesn't matter how many green pieces of paper are in your wallet; you can't "demand" a TV set unless the store has an actual unit on the shelf.

Eurofighter came within half a SECOND of hitting private jet in 530mph dive-bomb practice

A Eurofighter came within half a second of hitting a private jet after screaming past the plane at 530mph while diving, it has been revealed.

The RAF’s £138million Typhoon was simulating a bombing run with a ‘high-angled strafe’ when it flew past just 240ft from the Hawker Siddeley 125, which was preparing to land at an airport.

They missed each other by ‘the blink of an eye’, air traffic experts said.

The incident near Louth, Lincs, was classed as an ‘A’ by the Civil Aviation Authority’s Airprox Board — meaning there was a ‘definite risk of collision’.

It's No Joke: Fed Hires Failed Bank Executive

The Federal Reserve Bank is drawing jeers for hiring a former top executive from the now-defunct investment bank Bear Stearns to help it gauge the health of other banks.

"How's this for sweet irony?" business publication Portfolio.com needled the pick.

Michael Alix was head of risk management for Bear Stearns for two years until the institution imploded this spring, a victim of its (risky) subprime-mortgage related investments.

Last Friday, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York quietly announced it had hired Alix to advise it on bank supervision.

LG, Sharp plead guilty to LCD price-fixing, take $585m fine

Allegations of LCD price-fixing have been swirling around for years now, and it looks like at least some of the companies involved have dirt on their hands -- LG, Sharp and Chunghwa Picture Tubes have all just pled guilty to price-fixing in a case filed by the US Department of Justice and will pay a combined $585m fine. LG's taking the biggest hit at $400m for conspiring to fix prices from September 2001 to June 2006, while Sharp's on the hook for $120m for jacking prices on panels sold to Dell, Motorola and Apple during the same time frame. Naughty, naughty.
