Among all the movies and TV shows produced by Stanley Kubrick , I like "Eyes Wide Shut" the most, and "manned Moon lending" the least. ;-))
Just focus on these two questions:
(1) what is the probability of successful manned Moon landing at its first try given the fact the unmanned soft-landing on the Moon surface was achieved only after more than 30 failures?
(2) Why was the absence of manned Moon landing conducted by US or by another other country, since 1972?
APRU needs to be on your watchlist right now. This cannabis play could explode. We have all seen cannabis stocks go up 1000% plus. Here is one that is virtually undiscovered still.
I've been trading JPM very successfully, but I'm looking for a good research site to get stock picks from.

Sure, the numbers announced today are better than expected. That give 0.9% for the first half of 2014, and it still needs average 3% for the 2nd half in order to meet Federal Reserve 2% growth expectation.
But do not forget that these not-so-impressive numbers are obtained on the back of 15-20% annual stock market appreciation during the past few years. The stream is apparently running out.
The implosion might come in full force next year.
Again, the truth always, in my view, lies between what you hear from cnbc/bloomberg, and alternative media such as x22report.
That 4% is kind like a knee-jerk reaction to the Q1 negative number. Now Q1 is revised to -2.1% ( as you can see these estimates fluctuate a lot), the averaged GDP growth for the first half is about 0.9%. So in order for Federal Reserve's 2% forecast to hold, we need average 3% for the 2nd half.
Do not forget, these numbers were achieved when the stock market jumped 15-20% annually. When the run-up stalls, the number will be significantly lower.
The pressure of implosion is present and strong. It was only pushed further into the future.
The sanction might push EU into a recession. Now, they can blame the recession on Putin.
If Russia chooses to widen the conflict and determines to make the Eastern Ukraine independent, then markets in EU and US might crash. Then we might have 2015 recession for Russia, EU, US, etc. Japan's Abenomics will also collapse.
Wow, we are living in a "complex" world.
The multi-decade credit bubbled popped in 2008. The unwinding process (implosion) continues ...
Five years from now. most of common people will start to realized that the $4+ trillion balancesheet is permanent. Since 2008, everybody on the Wall Street way saying that Federal Reserve is printing the money. Actually the printing part has been done during the past 30 years by the PONZI banking and shadowy banking systems. The inevitable implosion started in 2008 and Fed pump the fantasy money to SLOW DOWN the credit implosion, i.e. use public money to bailout the private profit.
The recent GDP growth trend is yet another sign that the implosion is still on going. This time, we need to pray for miracle. ;-))
Its hard to understand but the supervision of European banques failed and a family that hold a group that is the major shareholder of banco espirito santo have created a scheme to avoid the help of the portuguese state, that scheme have lived hunder the suprevision of the troika even the IMF; European Comission and the ECB did not find the scheme of a financial group that have survived to austerity, after the exit of the troika the scheme collapsed, the family have entered in default of its financial group, now its a Madoff case, i believe the euro and the supervision of central banks have failed. How to avoid this situation nobody knows and europe have lots of financial familys with investement financial groups.
Check out X22report on you tube. What he said is almost the opposite of what you hear from cnbc or bloomberg. The truth is likely in between. That is my hope. ;-)))
