Puerto Rico is a self-governing commonwealth in association with the United States. The chief of state is the President of the United States of America. The head of government is an elected Governor. There are two legislative chambers: the House of Representatives, 51 seats, and the Senate, 27 seats.
Puerto Rico has authority over its internal affairs. United States controls: interstate trade, foreign relations and commerce, customs administration, control of air, land and sea, immigration and emigration, nationality and citizenship, currency, maritime laws, military service, military bases, army, navy and air force, declaration of war, constitutionality of laws, jurisdictions and legal procedures, treaties, radio and television--communications, agriculture, mining and minerals, highways, postal system; Social Security, and other areas generally controlled by the federal government in the United States. Puerto Rican institutions control internal affairs unless U.S. law is involved, as in matters of public health and pollution. The major differences between Puerto Rico and the 50 states are exemption from some aspects of the Internal Revenue Code, its lack of voting representation in either house of the U.S. Congress (Senate and House of Representatives), the ineligibility of Puerto Ricans residing on the island to vote in presidential elections, and its lack of assignation of some revenues reserved for the states.

Come August he has the right to sell those shares so you can bet he is going to pump Greece just to get out, not one bank in Greece will pass the stress test under the new guidelines, even if they claim to have a Tier 1 of 15 which is based under the old accounting method, they have to go with the new method, also if many banks in Europe looks bad you can bet Greece will be in the toilet.
Under the new Basel ruling European banks will not be able to use their bonds banks that they own as risk free on their balance sheet, that was announced a few days ago, now add that to NPL`s and you have a mess, hope I am wrong, and good luck
you bought into COCO ? I thought you sold, that one is going bankrupt, I grabbed PRKR and looking for a decent rebound in the next couple of weeks, good luck on that stock
Argentina plays the Netherlands, the Netherlands aren't Germans but the Germans hit the Brazilians butt yesterday, 7 to 1 that was a slaughter. heres the news, (Reuters) - German media savored the national soccer team's unprecedented 7-1 semi-final victory over World Cup hosts Brazil on Wednesday, describing the rout as a sensation and a miracle and - even though the final is yet to come - its players as immortal.
Top-selling Bild devoted six of its eight main pages to the match under the banner headline "Speechless!", summing up the sense of disbelief at the scale of the win.
A picture of jubilant two-goal midfielder Toni Kroos adorned the front page. "Boys, you are immortal!" read the gleeful column in Bild, which thanked all the team by name and coach Joachim Loew.
"Germany will never forget this July 8, 2014... Thanks for this moment of glory. Thanks that we could experience it!"
The paper dedicated a full page to each of the five German goalscorers in their red and black strip.
Your correct and I apologize and hope you except my apologies. From the board Neo nz who is like the Roman empire that loves to kill innocent people, and think all things of Germans are holy but that's in your opinion.
My Bday is next week also but I think you and Maria have more in common, just think she got all dolled up for you, her gray hair went to some hairdresser and she got her fingers and toes painted just for you, she just cant wait to see you and hold you hehe
Global banking regulators are considering new measures that would make it harder for banks to understate the riskiness of their assets, including potentially ending the long-standing treatment of all government bonds as automatically risk-free, according to people familiar with the discussions.
The changes under consideration by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the Switzerland-based group that sets global banking rules, could force banks to raise billions of dollars in extra capital.
The Basel Committee is considering new regulations that would reduce banks’ latitude to measure the riskiness of their own assets, a key determinant of how much capital they need to hold, these people said. The panel is looking at barring banks from assigning very low risk levels to certain types of assets, a tactic some lenders have used to reduce their capital requirements, these people said.
The potential changes would address two of the most controversial elements of bank accounting. Banks’ treatment of government bonds as without risks became a punch line during Europe’s financial crisis when Greece defaulted on its widely held debts; investors continue to treat some European government bonds as far from risk-free. Meanwhile, banks’ discretion to estimate the riskiness of their own assets has contributed to the perception among many investors that banks’ capital ratios aren’t reliable indicators of their financial health.
I have a bid to buy DRL at 5.31 as my first buy back, I still hold 25 percent of my shares since I sold 75 percent of them. my calculation for lowest price is 4.75, I have created my own method to get a stock price in short term, Bollinger band and the RSI determines my calculation, but volume determines the speed at the price I hope for, it doesn't always work but have been getting better at the prices by using more charts. I have 75 percent of my JDST to sell at 14.39 and bought them at 12.10 last week, will see what happens tomorrow when I get home from work, also have half my marijuana stock up for tomorrow at double what I paid for them lol
ANAS its a sub penny stock, 99% of those stocks are scams but I found this one interesting, they will be stocking the shelves with a product called 5 Hour High, you can now go to work without smelling like you smoked a joint LOL that's my opinion of the stock. They wont do a reverse split and are buying back shares instead, that's unheard of for a sub penny stock, but look at market cap 4.22K that's correct 4.22 K, it closed up 28% but was higher. It reminds me of the marijuana vending company that was a sub penny but now on the major exchange LOL so these goofy ones seem interesting since I don't follow that industry, also I am not here to pump some sub penny stock, I will checkout yours.
Being honest doesn't create negative energy for the person who is honest. Hold is misleading a person from the truth on what you believe as HOLD will make other people believe theirs still hope, but its your right to do that.
