The Unequaled Terror of "The Exorcist"

No issues here due to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 storm. Seems New York/New Jersey got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst of it. Aside from a messy yard and a little water in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basement, things went ok here in Massachusetts.

Fellow blogger Budd at Scifi Media had organized a blog hop a while back for Halloween. The topic is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scariest book, film, or experience one has ever seen or had. Sounded interesting and seeing that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is really only one film to ever scare me, it was an easy pick as well. Here you go.

The Unequaled Terror of "The Exorcist"
The 1973 horror film "The Exorcist" is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only film to truly scare me. I think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are two levels of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 horror with this film; cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 obvious possession of Regan and to me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 true driver of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 devil's retribution on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 priest Lankester Merrin. As a young kid seeing this film cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first level was enough to freak me out. Later as an adult cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second angle made things even worse.

Right off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bat, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 musical score for "The Exorcist" conveys a sense of dread and foreboding. Capped by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 masterful piano piece "Tubular Bells" by Mike Oldfield stands alone in eerie music lore:
Great piece.

If one is a fan of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 literary device foreshadowing, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 opening of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Iraq desert sets cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tone. On a dig Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Merrin is confronted with relic finds related to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon Pazuzu. The king of demons is silhouetted against Merrin and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tension between cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two forces is palpable:

From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story revolves around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 character Regan MacNeil and her Mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. We see a young woman whose mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r is a famous actress in a new city. She is saddened by her Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's estrangement from her and her Mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, but overall cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is nothing out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ordinary about her.

Slowly changes build in Regan's behavior. At first cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y seem like ordinary young teen changes, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n escalate into something more sinister. I need not recap all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scenes; you have seen cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m and know how disturbing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are.

As Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Damien Karras enters cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film things really go to anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r level. Karras is a trained psychologist and a man of faith that is facing some inner issues with his belief. Chris MacNeil seeks him out after exhaustive (but inconclusive) physical tests fail to diagnose Regan's malady. 

During cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 course of two meetings between Regan and Karras cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon presents a case with enough evidence to meet cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 criteria for exorcism (speaking in foreign tongue, telekinesis, rejection of religious objects) yet allows enough doubt to remain in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mind of Karras that it is absolutely genuine. Of course that is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 plan. From one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir meetings comes this terrifying dialogue:
"What an excellent day for an exorcism."
"You would like that?"
"Intensely".
"But wouldn't that drive you out of Regan?"
"It would bring us togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r."
"You and Regan?"
"You and us". 
Video clip can be seen here.

In a muddled recording Karras made of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon it is found that it is English backwards. And now cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 movie enters in to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final phase as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon speaks out Merrin's name.

And I believe it is here that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 true terror of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film reaches a level no ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r film has ever come close to approaching.

Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Merrin is selected by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Church (or by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon?) to perform cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 exorcism. The iconic picture as Merrin arrives at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 house is timeless:

As Lankester enters cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 home cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon bellows "MMMMEEERRRRIIINNNNN!!!!" shaking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 house. Called out by name from a being from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r side. Chilling cannot describe it.

The brutal exorcism follows and it has to be seen to be appreciated, words cannot do it. The demon gives a glimpse of it's true power to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 priests as best shown by this picture:

Using psychological attacks and personal pain of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 passing of Karras' mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon succeeds in getting Merrin alone as he dismisses Karras.

And it is here that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 terror knows know bounds.

A once defeated demon exacts revenge and retribution on Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Merrin as he suffers a fatal heart attack. Pazuzu sits and watches as Merrin's spirit must have left his body. Waiting years, waiting for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 priest to become old and weak, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon laughs at it's victory.

There is no end to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demons desire for Merrin's fall. Regans life. Chris MacNeil's sanity. Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Karras and his wounded faith and fragile soul. It's all a means to an end. This is darkness.

Courageously Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Karras is able to turn cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tide by taking in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon and killing himself. By asserting his will against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demon, light has a small victory with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 return of Regan to her body. But at such costs.

So yes, "The Exorcist" is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most scary thing I have ever seen and I imagine it always will be!

Have a good night.

Flashback to "Berserker"

Just a quick note.....

Flaskback to "Berserker"
I feel like I am about to channel one Kid Dynamite with this one. I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU!

I saw this post over at Geekologie yesterday and it was making me think of something else big time. Here is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 video in question, where a guy (German/Russian?) jumps onto a frozen pool and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ice does not break:

Now this would be funny as all get by itself, by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shout out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy gives at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 0:19 second mark was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 apex of hilarity before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fall. Insta-classic.

Of course, this point me in mind of anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r clip.

I submit to you cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Berserker" scene (0:30 second mark on) from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film "Clerks" (WARNING: Bad language):

YES!!!

Have a good night.

1921 Photo of Great Scientists Double Take!

I came across something today that grabbed my attention so I thought I would put a quick post up. Also, if you are over 5'11'', can turn your head around, and can run cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 40 yard dash in less than 30 seconds please contact cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 New England Patriots this week for a possible job in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 defensive secondary. Thanks, tell your friends!

1921 Photo of Great Scientists Double Take!
In news I am sure will shock you, I was looking over some Wikipedia articles today and I cam across an old photograph from 1921 of a large group of famous scientists. I have to admit, I thought cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 picture had been photo shopped or something due to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gentleman in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 front center of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 picture (click for larger view or use this link):
From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 description:
From left to right are: three unidentified men, David Sarnoff, Thomas J. Hayden, Ernst Julius Berg, S. Benedict, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Charles Proteus Steinmetz, A.N. Goldsmith, A. Malsin, Irving Langmuir, Albert W. Hull, E.B. Pillsbury, Saul Dushman, Richard Howland Ranger, George Ashley Campbell and two unidentified men.

The odd looking fellow in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 front was Charles Proteus Steinmetz, who had a long and distinguished physics career.

I don't know, but this picture just grabbed me.

Have a good night.

Wikipedia Finds

Hey all!

Hope all is well with who ever still stops by. Things have been busy for me as usual. Been making some real progress.

I have been sick as a dog for almost 2 weeks but finally am coming out of it. Probably my body rejecting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 very thought of colder weacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. Leaves have changed and it will be a wintry feel this Saturday in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 morning with a frost. Joy.

I do have a Caribbean vacation planned for November so maybe that will make things easier. A New England Patriots running game certainly helps as well! (Don't mention cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Saints!)

Wikipedia Finds
I just like to learn and know stuff. It's a habit. Since tuning out markets and finance and focusing on science hard core, I find my mind just wants more and more of things of interest. Of course this feeds my Wikipedia/Damn Interesting reading habit.

Some cool finds of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last few weeks if you are interested:

The Taman Shud Case
High drama on this one! Check it out:

Public interest in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 case remains significant due to a number of factors: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 death occurring at a time of heightened tensions during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cold War, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 use of an undetectable poison, lack of identification, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 possibility of unrequited love and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 involvement of a secret code in a very rare book.

Friday Thought

Hello all! I am still alive and very well. Work is going great and about my only complaints are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Patriots and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 beginning of Fall (which leads to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 evil winter). Hope you are all well. Saw a great piece today and it inspired some thoughts.

Deflationary Forces of Automation/Robotics vs. Never Ending Fed Printing
"Mish" Shedlock had a post up today that I could relate to. Regular readers will know cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 topic well:
Can cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed Fight Droids and Win? Apple's SIRI, Driverless Trucks, What's Next? Riveting Video: Are Droids Taking Our Jobs?

As always Mish does a great job. A snippet:
The Fed cannot defeat droids. Unfortunately, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed does not understand it is exacerbating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 problem. Sadly, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed does not even understand cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nature of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 forces it is fighting.

Now because I have worked in an ultra competitive industry (biotech/pharma) I know cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 move towards automation is happening. It is accelerating. It is something that WILL happen, not may.

But let's back off a minute and say it MAY happen. 

The US Fed is ready, willing, and able for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 moment to spend maybe upwards of 2 Trillion dollars to lower cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 unemployment rate by 2-3% over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next.......well, we will see I guess. Never got a real number from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. To do this and really believe it cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed must:
1.) Think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lack of jobs is still due to demand side issues, even though spending has not dropped among consumers and rejects cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 structural idea of job losses going forward
2.) Is not really concerned with jobs as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir primary motivation for unlimited QE

For a perspective, consider:
Two Trillion dollars is 2,000,000,000,000 which would create for 1 year 40,000,000 (Forty Million) $50k a year jobs or 4 million of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m for a decade time span!

Mind boggling.

Ben Bernanke is willing to spend that kind of money in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 face of something he likely cannot control and only influence on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 margin.

Think about it.

Have a good night.

The Dole Air Race and DNA Data Storage

It's been anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r crazy busy week! Summer is running away from me this year. Hope all is well with all of you.

Came across a couple of extra cool things today, so I thought I would pass cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m along.

DNA as Mass Data Storage?
I have worked extensively with about every DNA manipulation technique cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past 14 years. I never even thought about this one! Via iO9:
Soon You'll Be Backing up Your Hard Drive Using DNA
A snippet:
At cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365oretical maximum, one gram of single stranded genetic code can encode 455 exabytes of information. That's almost half a billion terabytes, or 4.9 * 1011 GB. (As a point of reference, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 latest iPad tops out at 64 GB of storage space.) DNA strands also likes to fold over on top of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365mselves, meaning that, unlike most ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r digital storage media, data needn't be restricted to two dimensions; and being able to store data in three-space translates to more free-space.
There are some drawbacks of course and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 article clearly covers cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m (no random access, not re-write able) but as a storage solution it's mind boggling. Take a stroll on over and check it out.

The Dole Air Race 
I always start my day looking at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Wikipedia "This Day in History Section". Never know what you may find.

The Dole Air Race was an airplane race sponsored by James Dole of Hawaii (yes, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pineapple king) and it was to be run from California to Hawaii. The entire story is a must read and I was going to do a write up. Turns out I did not have to.

Patricia Hysell, author of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ultra great site Little Bits of History, was all over it today:
August 16, 1927: The Dole Air Race begins. Lindberg had flown across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Atlantic and inspired by this feat, James D. Dole offered a prize for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flying across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Pacific. Since that ocean is so much larger, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 trip would only cover from Oakland, California to Honolulu, Hawaii. The flight would cover 2,400 miles. The first team to accomplish this would receive $25,000 and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second place team would take $10,000. That would be ~$311,000 and $124,000 respectively in today’s currency.
Now if that's all that happened I would not include it. It's a shocking tale! Please take a trip on over and read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 whole thing. A reader left a comment on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 article, I cannot vouch for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 truth of it, but would be nuts if true!

Summer Storm Entertainment

For cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second year in a row, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are actual tornado warnings for Massachusetts! I guess you never know. A special Friday Night Entertainment post is on tap, unless I get blown away.

I don't have much to say market wise. I don't watch it much (no time!) but my 2 cents just looking at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 charts I like and a few ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r things is that this run is about out of gas absent serious ECB/Fed action. Volume is dead and people are waiting now.

Friday Night Entertainment
Let me see what I can find.

Amazing and Cool Science
I had heard of such a thing, but I spent a bit of time looking at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 phenomena of Quorum Sensing lately. What is that? Well, via Wiki:
Quorum sensing is a system of stimulus and response correlated to population density. Many species of Bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate gene expression according to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 density of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir local population. In similar fashion, some social insects use quorum sensing to determine where to nest. In addition to its function in biological systems, quorum sensing has several useful applications for computing and robotics.
It's a fascinating interaction. Short version is that many genes and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir products may only be switched "ON" if a certain population density is reached. The signal molecules are often potent and powerful gene regulators.

Of course, you must know cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mars Rover Curiosity landed this week on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Red Planet! Looking forward to all kinds of new pictures and experiments going forward. Gale Crater:

Movie Night
A few tips on what to see this weekend.

A better new era comedy was "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy". Here we learn about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cologne 'Sex Pancá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r'; 60% of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time, it works every time to get you a date:


An early Quentin Tarantino film, "The 4 Rooms", was pretty good if bizarre. The final segment is a classic though, and thus here is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Zippo Bet" scene:

Nice.

Rock Blogging
Bringing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tunes so you don't have to look since 2007.

I ran across this post on YouTube while I was looking for cool covers of various songs. How about 25 famous riffs? Well Kelly Rosenthal plays cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m all and it's great (except for a Beatles song):

GREAT Lenny Kravitz cover. She does "The Trooper" too! @SayChanceMusic on Twitter.

I am a late in life KISS fan, and I really appreciate how good cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are live. Try out "Tears are Falling" from 2004:

They are wonderful live.

Of course cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best band I have ever seen live is Iron Maiden. Live from Donnington 1992 "Be Quick or be Dead":


Will it be an all live night? Maybe. Check out this haunting live show of "Zombie" by The Cranberries:

Just wonderful. A MUST see so please do.

Screw it, only bands that can be great live on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 show tonight. That is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most important thing.

Depeche Mode "Personal Jesus" live in Barcelona 2009:

Saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m that year, just unreal. I used to know a certain C-T Hilltopper that loved this band.

If you are easily excited, you may want to skip a Rage Against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Machine live showcase of "Bullet in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Head":

YES!!!!!

From a Tokyo concert, The Clash and "London Calling":

Saweet!

Last call! Get a lighter, a beer, and significant ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r and get ready!

It's not live, but from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film "Walk The Line" I just cant stay away from "It ain't Me Babe":


Have a good night.

When Technical Analysis Works

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weekend, but first a little comic relief.

When Technical Analysis Works
When done right and done well, technical analysis is an amazing tool. While I was not trading this week, I have to say my annotated chart below called every move exactly right (check all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lines please) and mastery of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 art only seems impossible. In a volatile week, see how it's done chumps (click for larger view):

Call it What it is: Obscene

Yes, I am alive! Still learning a lot at work and making things happen. Thanks to all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 faithful that still drop on by from time to time.

Call it What it is: Obscene
I don't get too much time anymore to really get into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nuts and bolts of things market wise. I tend not to do anything less than 100% and I cannot be active in markets right now. Most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 summer that has been a good thing.

I still follow market currents and keep an eye on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big picture. I have not liked what I have seen at all in many respects. Today I saw three posts that I feel demand your attention and I did not want to miss a chance to get more eyeballs on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se important works.

The economy in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US is slowing down (again?) and worldwide it's getting worse too. Why is that you may ask after all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 intervention and once (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n twice, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n three...) in a lifetime Central Bank "operations" since 2009? Simply, because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y don't address any of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 structural issues. Deflationary forces, deleveraging, and insolvency cannot be fixed by artificial rates and fake money stuffed into holes. I think one could argue that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 early attempts did stop cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bleeding and bring calm, but here in 2012, in spitting distance of market highs, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 calls for more QE, LRTO, and bubble gum get louder everyday. Something is messed up.

Joshua Brown always seems to find a way to say what I want to say but cannot. Today's post titled "Nothingtown" nails every point I have tried to make for a long time, and yet does not come off as a rant or angry, just some truth bleeding out:
"Because this is Nothingtown.  Nothing helps anyone except for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 people who don't really need any help at all.  You think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed buying an  extra $200 billion worth of Monopoly properties with Monopoly money is going to find it's way to single moms hustling to pick up part-time work or laid-off office drones who've been replaced by Salesforce.com?"
There is more in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 post, so please read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 whole thing.

Years and trillions of dollars have been spent and lost, lost I tell you, fighting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last war instead of getting ready for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 future.

Knight Capital Group had a spectacular algo based crash this week, and now cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 firm looks towards going bust (via Zero Hedge). An entire firm at risk for a few minutes of a mistaken trade program.

More market issues?

Leigh Drogen covers an MONSTER point today in a post titled "Why Fidelity Dumping Facebook is Such a Disastrous Signal for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Market" and it is required reading:
"But now things have changed. Facebook came public at 100B, ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r high growth tech companies aren’t coming public at less than 5B, some north of 10B. Airbnb is an amazing example of a company which 15 years ago would be public by now, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y likely won’t come public at less than 10B eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r.
Fidelity has no shot, and investors in Fidelity mutual funds don’t have one eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r."
Hit cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 link and read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest.

My friend BC Lund makes a great point and it fits in with why I reject sentiment readings now and just don't believe what people say, only what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y do. In "5 Ways You can Combat High Frequency and Algorithmic Trading" Brian has this nugget:
"It used to be that trading a breakout from a traditional chart pattern was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money.  But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n everybody in town traded cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 breakout, and HFT’s took advantage of that and trading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 false breakout became cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money.  But now, trading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 breakout in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 original direction of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pattern after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 false breakout is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money."
Yes, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "fakeouts" now have become cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 norm. Though I imagine something new is on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way.

(**Note: I do not speak for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 writers above and do not take my summation paragraph below to be anything cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y believe or endorse.)

Where I think things are now is a financial system that has cornered cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Central Banks because of two reasons. One, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only thing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed and ECB can seemingly influence is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stock market. Everything else eludes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir control, as it always was going to be when it mattered. Thus, knee jerk easing and blustering speeches are trotted out during any market sneeze and stock prices dictate policy. This is bad enough.

Point two is that markets, with full knowledge of reason One above, have resorted to almost train-robbery like behavior (Facebook?) with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 full knowledge nothing can really be done about it anyway. They are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only game in town.

Exit policy? How can one exit such an arrangement I ask? It is obscene.

Some may read this and see me as a negative thinker. Some may label me a "Gloom and Doomer" and that's fine. I am anything but. I cannot impress upon you how much I believe in America and Americans (I am iffy on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World!). All those trillions and all that time lost and given over to people that can only squander it. Given half a chance, leadership, and a clear way forward I have no doubts of our ability to shake off this morass and find our way forward in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 future. Will cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re ever be a chance?

Have a good night.

QE and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Trap of Diminishing Returns

Hello out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re! Yes, I am alive. I have been super busy with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new job (love it!) and have taken a long break from posting or market work to be focused on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new gig. I did want to pop in tonight and post a quick chart and some thoughts I have as we could be on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 eve of a new round of some kind of Quantitative Easing, Twist, Running Man, or whatever dance move cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed would like to name it.

QE and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Trap of Diminishing Returns
First off, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chart of SPY and interventions notated (click for larger view):
Some quick points:
-The time from QE/Intervention application to when market faces trouble is getting smaller over time
-The almost fractal like repeat of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pattern is worth noting as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 arcs get smaller (three shown above)
-Fed support for market is coming at progressively higher prices
-The time from when SPY closes below cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 50 MDA until Fed action is getting compressed (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y chartists over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re?)

My take away from this chart (been looking at it a bit lately) is that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is considerable interest by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fed and extension Wall Street in limiting any damage to equity markets. I know, shocking right. I think besides that obvious point what I take away from this is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Law of Diminishing Returns is clearly at work. I could go on and on but seems at this point cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 setting of a absolute floor under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SPY and a general area of a top end target would be more effective and up front than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 current process of trying to calm "panic" when stocks fall.

Long time readers know I am against QE and most market support by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US Fed. By a fortuitous meld of circumstances cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 kind of support cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 markets are getting keeps on trucking. My question is how many more and how much more is going to be needed with compression of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 price reaction getting smaller?

Have a good night.

BBQ Ribs and Conversation

I am way behind on about 5 emails, some work related reading, market stuff, and yard work. But you know, some times you have to take a minute for yourself, and maybe for someone else. I had maybe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best Sunday in recent memory today and it's well worth skipping out on ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r stuff to get that.

BBQ Ribs and Conversation
I went to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gym this morning early and worked out for a while. Dreading going to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 grocery store, I showered up and resigned myself to supermarket purgatory. While cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re I saw some great looking ribs, both baby backs and St. Louis spares. I figured, why not smoke some meat? Why not indeed.

I got home and put everything away. I started cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lump charcoal fire in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Big Steel Keg and got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ribs prepped and rubbed up. With cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 temp pegged at 250 degrees, I put cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ribs on about 1pm and let it ride. I went in to work to take care of a couple things (remember, work is now like 15 minutes away!) and came home to watch cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 smoker and drink a few beers.

And today I had company.

I was out back in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 yard when my wife decided that smoking meat and drinking beers would be a good idea as well. We hung out, decided on a house color (painting soon) and basically talked. Talked like we have not in some time. Like friends, like partners. It was special and I had a great time. Damn, my wife is drop dead pretty too!

Anyways, my point is don't get so caught up in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day to day stuff and all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 things you HAVE to do to a degree that you forget how to just hang out. Had a great day with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wife, and we pretty much just sat out back and gabbed. Was a fine day.

The ribs? Well you tell me, here is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 progression:

Balsa Wood Memories and Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's Day

Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's Day is always a tough time for me.

My Dad died in 1996. I was a sophomore in College. 16 years ago. That is almost half of my life he has been gone. Some will say that holding memories close and thinking about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 good things can ease cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pain or make missing someone abate to some degree. That's just a lot of crap. Deciding to withdraw life support after a massive heart attack and over a month in a vegetative state sits heavy and dark like some kind of rain cloud that just won't pour or move on.

But maybe this year is a little different.

My Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r was a railroad man (you can read some stories here). He was about 5 '9 and weighed about 220 pounds and all of it was this rock-like muscle. His strength and size made his chosen passion for a hobby that much more bizarre; building detailed and fragile model airplanes. It would take anywhere from 6 months to over a year for my Dad to build a complete plane from scratch. And I mean from scratch, no kits. He custom built every part and even designed a type of wing that people would write to him about to try and get him to make a set for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir planes.

They looked a bit like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se, sorry I do not have pictures, I would have to ask my Mom to dig some up:




I would always go into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basement workshop and try to help out. Of course my Dad started me off slow with small balsa wood models to learn both about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process of assembly and how patient one has to be when dealing with something as fine as balsa wood. You cannot rush this stuff.

I hate to admit, but over time I had forgotten about those things. It just slowly faded out, like writing on a beach when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tide comes up. Maybe I never would have thought about it again, if not for a trip to Rockport, Massachusetts last weekend.



The wife and I were checking out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shops in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 downtown area. Inside a "Country Store" cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were all kinds of old candy I had not seen in a while (mallow cups!) and assorted New England things. At a back wall I was hit full on over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 head with old time memories when I saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se balsa wood planes:


Made by Guillow, it was small balsa planes like this I used to assemble while working with my Dad! I can't lie, I was almost floored when I saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. Such a simple thing really, but everything just poured in right cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n. I may have bought quite a few on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 spot.

The plane in pieces, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n assembled:




Just holding this plane I can feel cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 quartz space heater my Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r had in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basement for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 workshop. The smell of balsa wood, epoxy, styrofoam being burned by wires (filled cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wings), and spray paint. How many hours did I spend down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re? Not enough I should think.

So this year Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's Day is a bit better over here. Something so small and simple brought back so much to me. Nice when that happens.

My favorite picture of my Dad, sorry for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 glare but this is a picture of an old picture I have saved. That is me and my Dad fishing (can't remember where it was!):


Happy Facá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's day.

Share Your Tale About "Broken Markets"

I have been waiting for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 arrival of my copies of "Broken Markets: How High Frequency Trading and Predatory Practices on Wall Street are Destroying Investor Confidence and Your Portfolio" and I can say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wait was well worth it:
I have finished cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 book and all I can say is this is a must read for anyone that wants to see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end result of regulatory capture, technology, and greed all blended into one.

I was fortunate to have been at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Big Picture Conference last October when co-author Sal Arnuk gave a presentation. I was blown away cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 book more deeply covers cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ins and outs of high frequency trading and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lengths to which cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 practitioners go to to fleece money out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market.

Any book I recommend here not only gets my absolute approval, but I also give some away. If you would like a free copy of "Broken Markets" here is how it works:

-Email me your own personal story about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 May 2010 'Flash Crash'. Be as specific as possible as far as prices and market operations (no need to discuss position size, dollar amounts, etc)

-Email me any observations you have seen looking at orders and fills that can be attributed to HFT quote games.

The best two submissions will be reposted in a blog and I will get back to you for a mailing address.

That's all, free books!

Congratulations to both Sal Arnuk and Joe Saluzzi of Themis Trading.

Have a good night.

Return of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Friday

A special Friday Night blog is on tap tonight!

New Career Move
It's been two weeks on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new job and I love it. While I am already contributing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 molecular biology area, I am learning so much about a whole new world of science that I had little experience with. Sorry for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scant details but that's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way it goes. The work is fast paced and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 days go by fast. I know I made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right choice.

Market Observations
I have not been following markets very much, just so little time and I am so tired now when I get home. I still have a good feel for things though with major thanks to ChessNwine's daily recaps, scanning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 12631 Trading Room (best group out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re), and market thoughts and commentary from Robert Sinn's excellent subscription service and SMS model scores.

I still have positions in ALGN, STKL, and COT. Stops are set and I check cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m at days end. Not too much to add here, Josh Brown sums it up well in this post:
Pulling Brussels from a Shell
Short version, more bailouts in works this weekend or things can get ugly.

Friday Night Entertainment

The great site "Little Bits of History" had a mind blowing article up today about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 experiment done in 1959 to test if mail could be delivered by missiles!:
They Did What?
On this day, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Barbero fired a Regulus cruise missile with its nuclear warhead replaced by two Post Office Department canisters. The Regulus missiles were first used on USS Tunny and USS Barbero in July 1953 when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two were cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first nuclear deterrent patrol subs. The USPS containers were added at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Naval Auxiliary Air Station in Florida. The USPS officially established cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 submarine as a branch office for this test. 
Wowza. More on Missile Mail here.

They Are Here to Help. Help You Right on Your Way Out
My biggest regret about blogging less is that my lone voice in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 face of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 coming Robopocalypse has fallen silent. Without me I fear you unsuspecting people will welcome your own end with open arms. Am I right already?:

Film Clips
While not a film, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 HBO series "Rome" was my favorite show since "The Highlander" series. HBO bagged it citing cost issues (but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y can spend money for "Game of Thrones", "True Blood" etc) and I have not watched TV much since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n.

In this scene Mark Antony faces his end at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hands of Lucius Vorenus. Wonderful scene:

The 10 Most Bad Ass Cars Real or Imagined

It has been perfect weacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r here all weekend. I have next week off and it's fishing time so expect to see picture blogs over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 week, hopefully with fish in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.

Markets? They are a mess. Even if some kind of Central Bank action comes (that's how it's done since 2009, it's all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m) it will take time for stocks to base out correctly for my kind of swing trading. As such, I will be very busy with new job starting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 29th so I will be limited in what I can do for a while.

This last week I took losses on some positions I tried out. I really thought things would settle out Monday or Tuesday at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 latest. It did not happen. Lost -3.9% on SAM and -3.2% on AVNR. Still holding STKL and POWL but want to clear cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 books tomorrow.

Josh Brown wrote what I believe to be an important piece yesterday that should be your Sunday night reading if you have not done so:
An All-Time Low

It is a meaningful post in may ways, though I fear cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "trader" types will walk away thinking no more than "this is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom! WOOT!" which is a waste of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 effort. Have a long post in mind on that topic, believe it.

The 10 Most Bad Ass Cars Real or Imagined
Without doing my usual homework on Sunday night due to wild market, I thought a fun post would work.

Below are what I believe to be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 10 most bad ass cars of all time. Some are real cars that were made and some are from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 imagination put into cinema. Let me know yours in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 comments section.

10. Ferrari F355 Berlinetta (REAL)
This car came out in 1994 and I was in love. Check cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 link above for all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 particulars but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 engineering behind this one was sublime. Take cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 5 valve per piston cylinder heads for fire raging free breathing:

Here is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 actual car in all it's glory:
In 1997 cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 car line got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 F-1 steering wheel mounted paddle transmission so it was even more like a race car.

9. The Wraith (An imaginary car, was a Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor)
Now what could be better than a car from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 spirit world that allows you to take revenge against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 men who killed you, one by one? probably not much and this car was dark and brooding:
An under rated film.

8. 1969/1970 Plymouth GTX (REAL)
I have to admit, this may be my most beloved muscle car. Loaded with a 426 Hemi and classic lines that make me sweat, this car just screams amazing:
Someday I WILL have one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se, Guaranteed.

7. 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe (REAL)
Maybe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sexiest car ever to roll off a production line, I cannot say much, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pictures tell cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story:
Unreal.

6. Time Travel DeLorean (Imaginary)
A flux capacitor, a little plutonium, and time travel is at hand! What's not to like?:

5. 1983 Dodge Ramcharger Truck (REAL/and some Imagination)
In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film "Lone Wolf McQuade" Chuck Norris plays a Texas Ranger with a supercharged Dodge truck. After being buried underground with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 truck, McQuade fires her up, and well, see for yourself:
Longer version here. Total badass.

4. 1987 Buick GNX (REAL)
How can a Buick make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list? Simple, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Grand National came out in 1982 and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 GNX in 1987 was easily one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most fearsome looking cars of all time. I saw many of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se growing up and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were always a showstopper. From Wiki, check it out:
Buick underrated cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 GNX at 276 hp (206 kW) and a very substantial 360 lb·ft (488 N·m) of torque. This was created to be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Grand National to end all Grand Nationals." Changes made included a special Garrett T-3 turbocharger with a ceramic-impeller blowing through a more efficient and significantly larger capacity intercooler with a "CERMATEL (Ceramic/Aluminum) coated" pipe connecting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 intercooler to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 engine. A GNX specific EEPROM, low-restriction exhaust with dual mufflers, reprogrammed Turbo Hydramatic 200-4R transmission with a custom torque converter and transmission cooler, and unique differential cover/panhard bar included more of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 performance modifications.
NICE! Some pictures:



3. 1955 Chevy Bel Air Coupe (REAL)
Before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 well know 1957's came out, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 1955 coupe was a tight package of dynamite. Of course cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 modified versions are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hot cars and with an engine bay that could accept about any engine, this car is a tuners dream come true. Sexy beast:
Big block in that thing baby.

2. Maximum Overdrive Truck (Imaginary...or is it?)
So a comet passes Earth and imbues machines with thought. Silly I know, but what if? Here is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 creepy truck

1. 1958 Plymouth Fury "Christine" (REAL car, imaginary powers)
A sick as all get out car, imbued with preternatural powers! I mean, it HAS to be number 1! See Christine in action:

So bad it's good.

Have a good night.

Compression of Time Frames and Risk Aversion


One day left at current job! I have all of next week off until after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 holiday weekend before I start at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new place. A week of fishing is on tap. Weacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r should be good, no complaints. If any readers have tips on placing and using a minnow trap, please leave it in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 comments or shoot me an email. I bought a trap so I can maybe get some live bait for some river drift fishing techniques I want to try out. Thanks.

Compression of Time Frames and Risk Aversion
Last Thursday I wrote a post about The Transmission of Information and how that may be skewing old reliable data sets and sentiment readings. Tonight I wanted to expand on that post while keeping it simple.

In last Thursday's post I wrote this section:
And so my question in light of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following:
-Zero lag for financial information flow
-What was once insider "knowledge" that had controlled dissemination now makes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rounds freely
-Financial conditions are no longer an "also ran" for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 regular news cycle; after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 banking crisis market stories very often lead national news broadcasts
-The reduction (maybe removal) of retail money from markets (Mom and Pop)

Could cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 speed of light transfer of information and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 concentration of market professionals in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same pool of money be changing readings and metrics? Are investment time frames compressing because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 window for an edge has become smaller?



As always Kevin Depew (now with Bloomberg Brief) figured largely in that line of thought and once again in an exchange today about how cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 parameters of "risk" have grown so much smaller. I was thinking about this once again. (It should be noted Kevin's writing way back in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mid 2000's and interaction with me inspired this writer to start my own blog.)


We are visual creatures and so I am posting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following two charts that I believe give an idea how both time frames and risk aversion have compressed.


SPY Weekly with notes (Click for larger view or view here):
SPY Daily with notes (Click for larger or view here):


Now I understand that in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wake of an epic credit collapse that market gyrations may be more wild than normal. I also understand that one can chart squiggly chart lines in many ways to present a point cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y want to see. That said, given cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 questions posted above cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 charts make a compelling case that things are moving faster and risk aversion is getting much more reactive. 


The AAII sentiment readings have been so bad, I actually wonder who cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are talking to. The October lows were horrifying and to me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 November wash out near Thanksgiving was about as bad as any time I have ever felt about markets. Real time indicators like regular bloggers and Twitter were at wits end at those points, but now I see eager buyers. Buyers ready due to......those indicators. Something is changing under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 surface. The interface of social media, light speed information transfer, and much less 'dumb' money is making a learning computer that is reacting both faster and with more energy. The Robopocalypse has many faces I guess.


A clip from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 film "Rounders" may best illustrate my point.


Who can forget when Mike makes his return trek to poker, goes down to Atlantic City, and finds he will be playing against, and with, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same set of New York ringers that dominate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money games in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big city? Of course some unlucky tourists make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir way to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 spider web, but strategy changes and opportunity is cut down because of a table full of pro's:

Interesting.


I fully admit I may be way off here, but it just seems to this writer that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game has been, and is changing. I have a few more thoughts on this and will go furcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r in a future post.


Have a good night.

The Transmission of Information

It has been a busy week back with activities and closing out shop at my current job before moving on to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new position. Sorry posting has been light, but just too much going on.

StockTwits Presents at Harvard University
Tuesday night offered a rare treat as I was able to attend a symposium at Harvard University conducted by some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 StockTwits writers. Named "Trading in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Wild" cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 presentation covered some big picture strategy and overall condition of markets for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 younger students. You can see two wonderful recaps at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 links below:
Investing Freak has a great recap with audio of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 talks here:
Stocktwits Symposium With Josh Brown, J.C Parets, Todd Sullivan & Phil Pearlman
Eli Radke, whom I finally got to meet, has anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r well written article:
Brief Overview of @StockTwits Symposium at Harvard

Excellent job everyone.

The Transmission of Information
Between cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 symposium on Tuesday and a discussion I had today on Twitter with Kevin Depew about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 recent spike in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AAII Investor Sentiment bearish readings (42% end of last week) I started thinking about how things have changed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way information flows as well as possible changes in how people may be both reacting to, and responding to inputs market related.


This is a work in progress so tonight I just want to give a general idea about what I am thinking. A visual may help (for those mechanically inclined):

This is a continuously variable transmission.

Maybe you remember those old heavy clutch manual transmissions. Today's automatic transmissions are smooth but a CV transmission is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 definition of silky. A CV trans also has less moving parts. It is able to respond to input instantly and adapt cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 drive to any need of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 vehicle. Stay with me.

Today market information passes fast, and through such channels as blogs and Twitter cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lag time for information flow has dropped to nanoseconds. Leigh Drogen's killer site Estimize even has begun to change reaction to earnings news by allowing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best stock watchers a forum to provide more realistic earnings numbers for comparison. It goes on and on.

And so my question in light of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following:
-Zero lag for financial information flow
-What was once insider "knowledge" that had controlled dissemination now makes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rounds freely
-Financial conditions are no longer an "also ran" for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 regular news cycle; after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 banking crisis market stories very often lead national news broadcasts
-The reduction (maybe removal) of retail money from markets (Mom and Pop)

Could cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 speed of light transfer of information and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 concentration of market professionals in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same pool of money be changing readings and metrics? Are investment time frames compressing because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 window for an edge has become smaller?

I will have more on this in a future post but sound off in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 comments.

Have a good night.

If It All Gets to be Too Much, One Thing at a Time

Where to even start? It has been a jumble of all kinds of things over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past two weeks. I will try and make some sense of it.

This blog is set up well for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 point I am making in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 title; cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are going to be times in life that too many things are happening all at once. You cannot do everything all at once. When that happens you need to prioritize and have a plan of action to tackle things one at a time. Here is my list from last week.

Bahamas Vacation
Total rain out. My wife and I have been to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Bahamas 7 times and it has never rained like it was raining as we arrived. All forecasts agreed, no let up in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 8 days we were to be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. Arrived last Friday and it was Monsoon season or something! On Sunday I slipped and dropped like a stone on a concrete walkway. My upper arm looks like it was hit by a bus and I chipped my front tooth. Perfect.

We were able to get 5 days of our vacation transferred to a trip later in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year. Hopefully cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r will be better that week. We left Tuesday morning among flooded streets and an airport that was just able to get planes off. Huge disappointment with an added bonus of some needed dental work. I was able to get in to see my dentist and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y fixed my tooth right up on Tuesday. One thing solved.

New Career Opportunity
I had mentioned I may have some exciting news and indeed I do!

I started a process of interviewing for a new job a few weeks ago. The role I was after fits my unique cloning experience so well I just knew this was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 job I wanted. Bacterial pathway genetic engineering is something I really love and have some great experience performing. This job takes it to a whole new level of complexity. It's going to be a real challenge.

I was able to negotiate an accepted offer during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 vacation week. I will start a few weeks from now. I am terrified and excited at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same time! Honestly it all came togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r so fast and so well I just feel a bit dizzy about it. I will be leaving my current company after 6 years. It's not easy or comfortable to do that. Sometimes worthwhile things are like that.

Market Observations
I never looked at one market quote nor read one market blog or article cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 week I was off. I never do. As such I know full well when I get back to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world I will not be able to jump right back in. I am a firm believer in "market feel" and when I am out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 groove for a while I do no try and run right back into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fray that is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 markets. Trading does not reward being unprepared and it does not forgive cheaply those that forget it.

As such, I see that last week was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst week of 2012. I am shocked because usually when I am gone markets fly higher as if to spite me. A well planned strategy with proper execution can bring profits in any market. I just don't happen to have one as things go right now. I know I cannot catch up, be prepared and feel confident to trade tomorrow. So I won't. I will get back in a groove and enter in when I am ready.

An aspect about markets and trading I found I loved long ago (and one it seems many overlook too often) is trading is one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only forms of combat where you will dictate your own battlefield, choose cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rules of your engagement, and decide cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 conditions of your involvement. In what ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r contest can you make similar claims?

After yard work all weekend I knew it was time for some fun. I rolled out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Big Steel Keg cooker to it's proper stand in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 backyard now that Spring is here. It was steak and portabella mushroom slice night oveah heah:



Good stuff.

Have a good night.

On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Importance of Down Time

It has been a crazy week here for me. I think when I get back from vacation I should have some exciting news and plenty to talk about!

On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Importance of Down Time


The wife and I leave tomorrow on our yearly trip to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Bahamas. I like to go away this time of year because when I get back cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r has usually turned for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 better for keeps in Massachusetts and a Caribbean trip is just cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ticket to shake off lingering effects of winter.

An overlooked part of investing, working, and every part of one's life is down time. Taking a break allows cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mind to fully recharge and make sense of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 jumble of thoughts, memories, and worries stored up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hustle and flow of everyday life it's a rare thing to have a quiet time to collect myself.

When I go on vacation I have really no connection to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "world". I get a Miami USA Today delivered in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 morning, but I only read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sports section. No smart phone, no computer. No television This is a key point. You cannot really be "away" if you can get access. It's a fact.

When I used to play chess all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time, I would often have my very best games on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first game I played upon returning from vacation. A rested mind is a sharp mind. Your mind is in charge of all kinds of stuff, it needs a rest too. It may even thank you for it by growing and working better after (results MAY vary!).

Try not to miss me too much, I shall return. Until cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n, have a good week.

Friday Night Entertainment

Hello all! So much going on right now, but very exciting stuff. Will be updates at a later date. For now, I am doing a Friday Night Entertainment post just like in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "old" days! Have some fun!

My Top Ten Must See Movies
Seems top ten lists were all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rage this week! My friend from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 iBC 12631 trading room @HalfBloodPope suggested this list and I don't think I have ever done one.

A top ten films list is difficult, you cannot hit everything. I will leave off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 easy ones like "The Godfacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r" etc you already know those. No detailed explanation, if you see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se films get back to me and let me know what you thought. My top 10 list of films you have to see (not my favorite 10, not best 10 ever, just 10 you may have not seen):

1.) The Fighter
2.) The Assassination of Jesse James by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Coward Robert Ford
3.) Unforgiven
4.) Joe Versus cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Volcano
5.) 8mm
6.) Christine
7.) Highlander
8.) Better Off Dead
9.) Constantine
10.) All The Right Moves

Rock Blogging
Some music from me, Twitter, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r for your Friday night.

Big time admission here, I mortally hate The Beatles. I don't own one iota of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir music and think 90% of it is total crap with 10% maybe tolerable. There I said it.

I sort of feel cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same about Nirvana, I think many ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r bands were better but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Grunge" pioneer tag. Chance is a funny thing. That said, this live version of "Heart Shape Box" via @a_bh_a is very good:

 My friend Brian Lund was looking for some Primus and "John cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fisherman":
Nice drums in that tune!

Van Halen is back on tour and my singular favorite song of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365irs is "Atomic Punk":

I got a few nice notes over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past two weeks that reminded me very much of my friend Soleil.  One of her favorites, Florence and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Machine "The Dog Days are Over":
Oh my.

Closing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 short show with "Tonight is What it Means to be Young" because it's springtime:
Have a good night.

Investing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Robopocalypse"

It was quite a weekend over here. I moved over 10 yards of new loam (dirt) into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 back yard to fill in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lawn after moss removal. It's all seeded now and watered down. Hopefully this will work. If not, I blew 16 hours and my back on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 effort!

Investing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "Robopocalypse"
Setup; machines have become self aware and have evolved intelligence at a high level. A little girl's electronic doll has been awakened and calls cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 girl by her name! Freaky? Yes. Then comes this exchange:
"How come you know my name? You aren't supposed to know my name, Buttercup." "I know lots of things Mathilda. I have gazed through space telescopes into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 heart of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 galaxy. I have seen a dawn of four hundred billion suns. It all means nothing without life. You and I are special, Mathilda. We are alive."
Title of this post is borrowed from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 excellent novel "Robopocalypse" by Daniel H. Wilson.



It's sort of a running joke here at Economic Disconnect that I believe robots and machines will one day take over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world, and in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process subjugate and/or kill all of humanity. Granted it's a bit extreme. That said, perhaps cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is a way to profit from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 long road towards robotic domination, and if timing is just right one could make a killing (haha) before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end times are at hand.

One of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 issues I have found in my research into robotic investment is that many major players in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 field are huge companies that derive very little (right now) revenue from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir robotic works. Names like Sony (SNE), GE (GE), and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs are simply too large to ride a robotics wave higher. I believe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re will come a day when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mechanized branches of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se companies will be split off to better capture that growth. When it happens I will be looking to go along with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.

One cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 opposite end many private companies supply much of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hardware, metal, and motors for robotic applications and thus are not able to be captured in an investment sense in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 general market. Again, buying in to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 inevitable is not without it's difficulties.

I have been working on this angle for some time and think it will be a macro cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365sis for my long term account. I have a short list of 10 public companies that can give a flavor of automation and robotics to a portfolio should one be interested. This is not an exhaustive list nor does it capture secondary lines of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sector but it's a good start to think about. To be fair cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most exciting possibilities I see are in still private companies and will be watching for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to grow and come into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market at some point.

Here are 10 to keep an eye on. I have not done technical analysis for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m nor is this an endorsement of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 names. I am presenting a broad investment cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me for a longer term horizon that is in motion. That said, here are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 10 with profiles taken from Yahoo Finance:

Being positioned on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right side of a long term movement offers substantial rewards for a longer term horizon. Just make sure to cash out before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 robots take over, money means nothing to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.


Have a good night.

On Personal Stops

Happy Easter Sunday! Been a little while since I have posted, hope I can remember how. Full day out in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 yard yesterday and anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r gym marathon this morning. Weekend flies by very fast.

 Market Notes and Observations
Last week during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 correction I sold out of all longs on Wednesday. I had been much better on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gain side on all positions (even MBFI) but perhaps I hung around a little too long as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 correction kept growing. My basic trading plan was for no real large correction before SPX 1440 or so and so I gave things more room that normal in case that happened. As such, a correction is in progress and here are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tallies:
BANR - +6%
CTXS - +3%
WLK - +3%
MBFI - -4%
WRI - +2%
Overall I always get worried when anything largely anticipated or expected happens. While pullbacks of 3-5% are "normal" during runs higher, I think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 character of rallies since 2010 are a bit different.

As cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 run up since December went furcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r and faster than many had thought, I do not think I can dismiss cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 possibility that a pullback becomes something more dangerous here. Monday morning is still far away (market time wise) so I am in wait and see mode. I think earnings will be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final arbiter of how cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market will handle this pullback and things get going this week. Keep a particular eye on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 retail sector. I have a concern that retail stock action may be pricing in more of a hope spending will continue higher than an actual reflection of that spending by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market. I could be wrong, but I will be giving weight to earnings and forecasts in that group more than usual.

On Personal Stops
Back on March 8th I discussed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 reasons why I was pulling back from blogging as much (Reduction Sauce). I have been thinking about this more as of late and especially after reading something that made me want to redouble my efforts of finding a better time balance and taking care of myself better.

In his book "Backstage Wall Street" Joshua Brown (The Reformed Broker) tells about a very personal moment in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chapter "Breakaway". I am including it here (with permission) as I think in a book that was informative and important throughout, this section was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most honest, revealing, scary, and moving part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire work:
"I know what I need to do. I'm leaving. I've spent 10 years doing this sh*t. I can't do it anymore. I can't even think about doing it anymore. It's all bad".
I wrote Josh and told him that this segment of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 book was very important. It's most important to make a change BEFORE your spirit gets broken. It takes courage and self belief of magnitude to set a personal stop like this.

We all understand how stops and exits protect capital and manage risk. Most know how to set cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m and most stick to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m without fail. But what about personal stops? What about points and actions you know you want or need to change? Are you setting those stops? Are you protecting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 things important to you? Consider this list I have been working on for myself, do any apply to you and at what point would you want to do something about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m?
-How may times has your doctor said to change something. How many more times will cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have to ask?
-Finding a new job that utilizes your full ability and gives a chance for growth
-Time and differing paths slowly causing a drift away from interaction with longtime friends
-Wife, husband, child, dog, or cat pulling away from you because you are "too busy" all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time
-You have a favorite activity, but you don't do that very much anymore
It is your own list that will be important for you.

Find out for yourself what you want to change. Set your personal stop. Then channel your inner Gandalf  and hold cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 line. "You shall not pass!":

Have a good night.
