I had a friend in college who made FAKE ID for students who were under age.

Later in life, living in  Chicago, he stole stain glass windows out of churches.

NOT NICE

Nick Clegg, who was Britain’s No. 2 leader from 2010 to 2015, has been hired to be Facebook’s top policy and communications executive.

So BRITS what say you?

RC:
Where I read it says...
"Traders seem to be unduly traumatized by recent equity weakness. The Fed is motivated by actual economic numbers that allow them to pursue the imperative of continuing to normalize rates.

It was refreshing that the minutes didn’t feature an overly tortured debate on exactly where the neutral rate lies. It is an example of pragmatism over theory. Much better that they acknowledged leveraged loans, tariffs and emerging market strains. Those are things that actually affect people’s lives. I think the notion of raising rates above neutral is a brilliant tour de force. I doubt they want to meaningfully do it, but it certainly stops the ceaseless speculation about when this hiking cycle will end. This is your first actually data-dependent Fed. Embrace it."

Traffic / Google Finally Acknowledges "Project Dragonfly"
« on: October 16, 2018, 02:36:54 PM »
For readers who missed the damning series of leaks sketching out the scope of the project, "Dragonfly" is intended to be a censored search engine that would block results for queries that the Chinese government considered sensitive, like the Mandarin phrases for "human rights" and "student protest". It would also require Chinese users to log in with their credentials before searches can be run, ensuring that the Communist Party can log and examine a comprehensive record of search activity.
