Maybe AMZN should slap an Orange logo on their phones. That way customers can compare Apples and Oranges. Scru AAPL they're gonna die a slow death.
What do y'all Americans pay taxes for if ya can't reasonably expect safe food? Or maybe ya just don't pay high enough taxes for that luxury huh...
@@@@@Japan Nuclear Crisis: Information for Canadians Regarding Imported and Domestic Food Following the March 11 earthquake in Japan, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) took several measures to assess and protect the Canadian food supply from potential effects of Japan's nuclear crisis. In coordination with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and other government and international partners, the CFIA implemented enhanced import controls, which did not allow food and animal feed products from affected areas in Japan to enter Canada without acceptable documentation or test results verifying their safety. The CFIA also launched a sampling and testing strategy to monitor radiation levels of imported food from Japan, domestic milk and domestic fish off the coast of British Columbia. More than 200 food samples were tested and all were found to be below Health Canada's actionable levels for radioactivity. As such, enhanced import controls have been lifted and no additional testing is planned.
I would think tuna would be checked for radioactivity... hella if government can afford to scan you to the bones at the airport surely they can afford to screen fish through an el-cheapo geiger counter.
You are insane. My gains over the last 4 months are largely intact. That's the benefit of a well-balanced portfolio with some minor strategic hedging. How did your shorts do over that period?
excellent show... ozzy sang amazingly well (first time I ever saw him). i passed on the stones last year... saw them 3 times already and figured #$%$ those hags (tickets were obscenely expensive... shame on them).
Troll says---Bingo. You are pretty slow but you seem to be catching on.
You say---buzz your are finally catching on.
you sound like troll's twin brother. anyway #$%$ you both.
Ukraine is going to go dark. EU will suffer like Japan did when nuclear power went off. Shame on the western world for creating yet another mess.
If Russia invaded Ukraine how do you think the western world would respond? I suspect there would be increased sanctions but that's it. Poor Ukraine got sucked into the hype and now they are basically left in the cold. Shame on the western nations for pushing them into this mess.
I just hope there's no big earthquake near Fukushima again. That would royally #$%$ up the whole planet if the entrapped radiation there was suddenly released. Sometimes I wonder why I still hold U stocks...
Do you know of any site to track money flows in/out of ETF's and mutual funds? The BRIC ETF's I follow have been quite strong lately..
Maybe this will help you
@@@@@Cantor reaffirms its Buy rating and $65 price target on Align Technology (Nasdaq: ALGN) following the company's announcement that the International Trade Commission (ITC) has upheld last year's Administrative Law Judge's ruling that privately-held ClearCorrect has infringed on at least 18 of Align's claims related to digital data and treatment plans imported from Pakistan.Analyst Jeremy Feffer commented, From a competitive standpoint, we believe that this ruling further strengthens Align's intellectual property fortress and creates even more significant barriers to entry for other potential participants in the clear aligner market, especially in light of recent product enhancements. More fundamentally, we also believe the company is well positioned to achieve the high end of 1Q:14 guidance, driven largely by continued strength O-U.S., stable pricing in the U.S. on better product mix (driven by Teen and G4), and improving trends among GP dentists. Longer term, we remain bullish on the story, as ongoing investments in new products (such as G5) and training programs, as well as recent deals with 3M and DENTSPLY, should help improve utilization trends, in our view.
Organic foods are mostly a scam. In Canada, all eggs and dairy come from animals that are free of hormones and antibiotics so no need to go organic for those products. Poultry and pork are free of hormones also. Beef is another story though...
@@@@@In Canada, growth hormones are only given to beef cattle (and not dairy cattle). There are no growth hormones used in poultry or pork production. Antibiotics, on the other hand, are used more often. They may be used in poultry, pork and fish that are being raised for food. Antibiotics may also be sprayed on fruit and given to honey bees. For animal products, if a cow is treated with antibiotics because of an infection, the milk they produce while being treated is not sold. When hens are given antibiotics, the eggs they lay are thrown away.
Only once... nailed a 25x gain on CREE far otm puts I bought for 30 cents just minutes before August earnings release. Got a more 'normal' 5x with a bear put spread a few months later on Oct earnings. I may try far otm calls this time around, especially if it tanks along with tech stocks next week.
Different yes but still a chronic underperformer. Compare ABB stock price with ROK for example. I held this for a few years and was underwhelmed.
