CAN the EPA be fined just like any other entity for polluting the Colorado river or is it the usual double standard?
Agency aimed to downplay severity of the incident
New Mexico official: EPA kept water data secret after spill.

You can't manipulate the market but you can manipulate individual stocks
The most typical forms of manipulation a bunch of "individuals" with lots of profited cash
1- when there's not much demand by retailers on the buy and sell, bid up up the price with big block orders with an AON order (all or none) on the bid side
2-shorting a stock, causing it to plunge, and covering at a profit.
3-Shaking out weak holders in a particular stock to buy shares at a discount;
4-Selling puts or calls on a large block of stock you control - For example, you are about to sell a 4% stake in a large cap stock; you know your selling will at least temporarily depress the price, so before you unload you sell a bunch of calls to unsuspecting investors who believe the stock will go up, then sell the stock and keep the premium as the calls expire worthless.
I think at the moment there's NEM accumulation by stock manipulation. Nov 2011 Newmont Mining was trading at $69.00 share ok...ok yes we all know gold was much higher then, I just want to say that if China gets their economic going rest assure Gold will be favored BUY again and this stock will follow.

The Ferrari initial public offering is now expected to be complete between the second and the third quarter of 2015, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne told reporters in Italy.
FCA announced last month it planned to spinoff Ferrari from the group, selling a 10% stake via a public offering and distributing the rest of FCA’s stake in Ferrari to its shareholders. The Ferrari IPO is expected to raise $5 billion to reduce FCA’s debt and bolster the company’s balance sheet.
"If they're crooks it's because corrupted lawmakers all around the world allow them to behave like that"
Exactly and correct, and it also includes the type of people in our National Highway Traffic Safety Administration corruption at the best. Now with a fine of 105m against FCA for cars made long before Chrysler takeover and approved by the same NHTSA, what about GM, Ford? FCAU common shareholders will be the losers here.
