BD, not knowing your composing process, I would suggest a possible simple solution. When you finish writing and before you try to post it, highlight all your text, then RIGHT CLICK and select COPY. If the post is subsequently lost, start a new one and put the cursur into the tablet area, RIGHT CLICK again and select PASTE from the menu. Your opus should again appear before your eyes. Hope this helps.

1:25 (Dow Jones) Bear Stearns sees a coming shift in sentiment - and a

rising stock market. "We believe that equities are poised for a move forward,

driven by Fed rate cuts, fiscal stimulus and credit markets beginning to

renormalize," anal cyst Jonathan Golub says. "In conjunction with a market

rebound, we expect a rotation toward cyclical areas and away from defensive

areas." The defensive areas especially include utilities, which Golub

downgraded to market underweight from market weight. (KJT)

DJ Nuclear Reactors Still Down After Florida Power Outage -AFP

 

 

MIAMI (AFP)--Power officials said Wednesday two nuclear reactors in southern

Florida remained shut down, one day after a massive blackout darkened millions

of homes across the state.

 

"The reactors still are not running," said Karen Visepo, spokeswoman for

Florida Power and Light, a unit of FPL Group Inc. (FPL) and the company

responsible for providing power in southern Florida.

 

The disabled reactors at the Turkey Point nuclear power plant were unlikely

to cause new blackouts, she said, but workers labored feverishly to get them

operating again.

 

"Getting them up and running again is a slow process," Visepo said.

 

Tuesday's massive power outage left millions of people in southern Florida

without electricity for several hours.

 

The power outage Tuesday stretched across a wide swath of Florida, from

Miami in the south to Daytona Beach mid-state, causing traffic jams, forcing

schools to lock down, and prompting stores to close.

 

Officials said the outage was caused by a malfunctioning switch at a power

substation near Miami.

 

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said in a statement it was looking

into possible violations of federal rules, as it consulted with other U.S.

agencies.

 

The outage was the country's biggest since August 2003, when about 50

million people were left without power across the northeastern U.S. and

Canada, plunging New York City into darkness and halting its subway network.

Neither.

 

I was talking about the safety of T-bills. The only way the US government can pay its bills today is to borrow even more money and the gap between revenue and expenses is blasting off into the stratosphere, way beyond the worst expectations of government financial planners.

T-Bills are not promises to deliver gold, silver, platinum, wheat, corn, soybeans, oats, crude oil, or anything else

 

they are not even a promise to provide a certain number of man-hours of labor

 

they are simply a promise to deliver a certain number of Dollars

 

Dollars

 

which can be created from thin air, in unlimited quantity, at zero cost, only by the U.S.

 

the Dollars do NOT have to be "borrowed", they can be printed

 

the U.S. has no debt problem

 

the BagHolders have a problem

 

I say let's just print enough dollars to pay off all the debt right now and be done with it

 

then print another million per person and direct deposit it

 

that way we're all debt-free millionaires

 

can't believe nobody thought of this before

Global shortage of metals looming

Our peak oil thesis gained some new respect last week as oil prices hit yet another record, the first close over US$100 per barrel. Demand fluctuates, but it is all about supply, and supply concerns this week showed how tight the market really is.

 

Peak oil has lots of press, but what about peak copper? Peak zinc? Peak gold? Sounds preposterous, but maybe it's not so far-fetched. Nearly every commodity is experiencing some supply issues, for a host of reasons. Add it all up, and it means potential supply shortages in the future. Demand may slacken this year, but in the next 10 years today's high commodity prices may actually look like a bargain.

 

Let's take a look at some of the issues facing commodity projects today, and give some examples of companies that have already been impacted by them.

 

Cost overruns: Inflation, equipment shortages, and labour issues have combined to wreak havoc on so many new commodity projects that long-term supply issues may result.

 

Simply put, because of inflation, a commodity project that appeared economical two years ago may no longer be viable. Case in point: Novagold's (NG/TSX) Galore Creek project in British Columbia.

 

Costs estimated at $2.5-billion a year or so ago escalated to more than $4-billion. The cost overruns have put the project on hold despite high copper and gold prices. That means an expected 432 million pounds of copper production a year is not going to hit the market anytime soon.

 

Newmont this month said its Boddington gold mine in Australia was experiencing 77% cost overruns.

 

Petaquilla's copper project in Panama is in a similar situation, with costs soaring to $3.5-billion.

Kohn Says Fed Weighs Need for More Rate Cuts

 

By Jim Brumm

http://www.reuters.com/article/ousiv/idUSN2636487720080226

 

WILMINGTON, North Carolina -- A top Federal Reserve official said on Tuesday that a weakened U.S. economy was a bigger worry than higher inflation, suggesting a willingness to lower interest rates further as the central bank tackles "difficult times."

 

"I do not expect the recent elevated inflation rates to persist," Fed Vice Chairman Donald Kohn told business school students at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

 

"In my view, the adverse dynamics of the financial markets and the economy have presented the greater threat to economic welfare in the United States," he said.

Hilarious shorty.

 

The scary thing is this has been thought of and tried many times before under different guises. Zimbabwe, Uganda, Turkey, Argentina, Weimar.

 

Have a read of Fed Vice Chairman Donald Kohn?s speech from Monday

 

?I expect the run-up in headline inflation to be reversed and core inflation to edge lower over the next few years. This projection assumes that energy and other commodity prices will level out, as suggested by the futures markets. Moreover, greater slack in the economy should reduce pressure on prices and wages. Despite high resource utilization over the past couple of years and periods of elevated headline inflation, labor cost increases have remained quite moderate, and inflation expectations remain reasonably well anchored.?
