    Let’s here it for the Viking FED’s. They are treating their banks like the English Coast crica 600AD:
    “The comments come as Scandinavia breaks away from the pack in revealing banks’ individual risk profiles after finding that Basel’s capital disclosure rules aren’t enough.”

    Distributed Denial-of-Service Attacks (DDoS): It’s one thing to hear about them, but it’s another thing to actually see them (look at the map linked below)….

    This gives a better picture as to the inner workings of the internet.

    Faber: I Expect a Big Stock Selloff in the Fall

    I predict Faber will predict a winter stock market this Autumn.

    40 years ago today, Nixon, pre-speech, confesses to be always worried that WH photographer Ollie is “gonna catch me pickin’ my nose”, then announces his resignation, effective noon, August 8, 1974.

    New Computer Chip Is Designed to Work Like the Brain
    By JOHN MARKOFF
    AUG. 7, 2014

    Inspired by the architecture of the brain, scientists have developed a new kind of computer chip that draws no more power than a hearing aid and may eventually excel at calculations that stump today’s supercomputers.

    The new processor, named TrueNorth, was developed by researchers at I.B.M. and detailed in an article published Wednesday in the journal Science. The chip attempts to mimic the way brains recognize patterns, relying on densely interconnected webs of transistors similar to the brain’s neural networks.

    The new chip’s electronic “neurons” are able to signal others when a type of data — light, for example –passes a certain threshold. Working in parallel, the neurons begin to organize the data into patterns suggesting the light is growing brighter, or changing color or shape.

    The processor may thus be able to recognize that a woman in a video is picking up a purse, or reaching into a pocket and pulling out a quarter. Humans are able to recognize these acts without conscious thought, yet today’s computers and robots struggle to interpret them.

    The chip contains 5.4 billion transistors, yet draws just 70 milliwatts of power. By contrast, modern Intel processors in today’s personal computers and data centers may have 1.4 billion transistors and consume far more power — 35 to 140 watts.

    Struggling to regain momentum? I think a 1.8% advance from the lows last night suggest no trouble regaining momentum. We’ll know “markets” are markets again when this kind of nonsense ends.

    the ‘great war’ or the end of all wars. still resonates today.

    seems that about 40% of ‘liberals’ have been on a social safety net program

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/rampage/wp/2014/08/07/9-myths-about-the-social-safety-net-annotated/

    and about the same number of conservatives have been.

    but 90% of all have had some interaction with one program or another,.

    even if they dont remember it unless they are asked about specific programs
