'Offshoring' pace picks up, research firm says

ORLANDO, Fla. - The "offshoring" of U.S. service jobs to low-wage countries is growing faster than previously thought, a leading research firm reported Monday.

Forrester Research Inc., a technology trend analysis firm, estimates that 830,000 U.S. service jobs will be lost by 2005, a 40 percent increase from a projection of 588,000 jobs it made in November 2002.

Seems like Early Boners always flame out before the next day's PreMarket.

The deadliest Boners are where the futures drift quietly lower in Asian trading, then we wake up to one of those PermaBlasts starting at 3:00am which infect Europe trading right away, and of course lights a fire under U.S. markets.

I was only kidding about 5 points in 15 minutes.........

Didn't expect it to really happen......

SEC Fines Lucent Technologies $25 Million
MARCY GORDON

Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Federal regulators charged nine former and current Lucent Technologies Inc. executives with securities fraud Monday and fined the company $25 million in a settlement, saying Lucent failed to cooperate fully in an accounting investigation.

The Securities and Exchange Commission also charged a former official of Winstar Communications with securities fraud and aiding and abetting Lucent's alleged violations of securities laws in the accounting irregularities.

In a civil lawsuit filed in federal court in Newark, N.J., the SEC alleged that Lucent "fraudulently and improperly" booked some $1.1 billion in revenue in 2000.

something odd, my wife was putzing around the kitchen for the last hour and she had Headline News on. She just came in and told me that she noticed the Market Info was missing. They usually post the market info at the bottem of the screen on a very regular basis. I watched too, for 30 min. ,,, nothing. Not sure it means anything, but it is a change in the Matrix.

To break up the monatony. The Doors /Roadhouse Blues.

Yeah

Yeah, keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel
Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel
Yeah, we're goin' to the Roadhouse
We're gonna have a real
Good time

Yeah, back at the Roadhouse they got some bungalows
Yeah, back at the Roadhouse they got some bungalows
And that's for the people
Who like to go down slow

Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, all night long

Do it, honey, do it

You gotta roll, roll, roll
You gotta thrill my soul, all right
Roll, roll, roll, roll
Thrill my soul
You gotta beep a gunk a chucha
Honk konk konk
You gotta each you puna
Each ya bop a luba
Each yall bump a kechonk
Eat sum kont
all, right

Ashen lady, Ashen lady
Give up your vows, give up your vows
Save our city, save our city
Right now

Well, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer
Well, I woke up this morning, and I got myself a beer
The future's uncertain, and the end is always near

Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, all night long
NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.

The criminally timed BS announcement today that Sarin Gas was discovered in Iraq did not have the desired effect on the markets. That's a problem.

THEREFORE

It will be determined that upon further analysis, the prior announcement that Sarin gas was discovered in a bomb...thus supporting the argument for the existence of WMD...and justification for the resulting war...was faulty.

"Upon further analysis, the bomb which was previously believed to have contained the deadly nerve agent, Sarin, is now believed not to have contained that nerve agent. We apologize to any short sellers who were forced to cover short positions as a result of this announcement, and reserve the right to rediscover weapons of mass destruction at any point in the future."

On Pru Bear Chat, it was reported that this story was a transcription error.

And that what they really found was Sarah Jessica Parker in a sarong made of Saran Wrap.

Panic anyone!-Global TV in Canada reports that Rummy will transfer 20,000 to 30,000 troops garrisoned in South Korea to Iraq and will extend the service times of Troops in Iraq particularily the Marines. Now the biggest danger to the world is the North Korean wing nut with Nuclear weapons when he see's most of the U.S. forces leaving -he may well see a path to Seoul-bear in mind N. Korea have an army of 1 million and I doubt the Americans leaving will make South korea happy. The screwup just gets worse-doesn't it. On another topic Gas up here hit an all time high today of 99.9 a liter roughly a little over $3.- @ gallon Canadian so we are going stroke for stroke with you guys-the bad news is our Oil comes from here our own country and in most cases our own Province-so what it says is demand very much exceeds supply, if I was an American the good news would be that the flow from Canada could be counted on to continue but the bad news is the flow from off shore cannot be counted on anymore-that scares the Shit out of me! ;)

... North Korea ... and ... don't forget China and Taiwan ...

-----------------------
Beijing last night threatened Taiwan with destruction if President Chen Shui-bian doesn't accept China is "one nation."

In an official statement, the mainland government warned Taiwan leaders to make choices about the future carefully or the "Chinese people will crush their schemes firmly and thoroughly at any cost."

Big doo- I traveled the area for many years-The South koreans are good fighters, in fact like the North they would rather fight than eat-the Taiwanese how ever could not fight there way out of a wet paper bag. The sad part is two of the Worlds greatest Hotels-the Shilla in Seoul and the Sherwood in Taipei are at risk-and that is sad-the Sherwood Bar is like an out take on Bogies "Casablanca"! ;)
