"In addition, thousands of jobs would be created."

"Much safer and better for the environment than transporting crude oil by rail."
[Safer for the environment??? That's ridiculous.And why do we need to be importing oil from anyone?]
Conservatives prefer to just call everyone who disagrees with them names. Mounting a discussion requires thinking. Like I asked about ten times on this board what the Republican plan was to create jobs. Never got an answer.

With the final polls before Tuesday’s pivotal Israeli election showing him narrowly behind, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to choose a message to close on. Some candidates close on trust; others on change. Netanyahu is closing on chutzpah.
On his Facebook page (the main source of communications in Israeli elections), Netanyahu wrote on Friday: “Left-wing and media elements in Israel and abroad have conspired to bring [Zionist Union leaders Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni] to power illegitimately, by means of slander at home and unprecedented money from abroad.”
When the anchor of Israel’s Channel 2 later stated the obvious and reminded Netanyahu that foreign money and media have also helped him over the years, Netanyahu replied: “That is not true.”
Not true? This from a man who routinely hires American political consultants who specialize in attack politics and who, in recent years, allowed himself to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, the founder of a free newspaper—now Israel’s largest—devoted to relentlessly promoting Netanyahu and, well, slandering his opponents.
Israeli campaigns are traditionally waged and decided on security issues, which should work to Netanyahu’s advantage on Election Day. But as I learned after two weeks reporting in Israel, the March 17 election might be the exception that proves the rule.
Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has been AWOL for more than a week, and reports now say that the 62-year-old president may have been deposed in a silent coup deep within the Kremlin. But Putin is scheduled to make a public appearance on Monday, so the mystery of his disappearance could be cleared up at that time — or it could grow even deeper if Putin pulls a no-show, as he has at several announced meetings since March 5.
But a new report, based on claims by a key Putin ally Saturday, says that Putin has been removed from office in a behind-the-scenes coup led by the former chief of Russia’s Federal Security Service, known as the FSB — the secret police and intelligence organization that has functioned as an important pillar of the Vladimir Putin regime.
“I think that Putin is neutralized at the moment, but of course, he is alive,” Putin backer Geydar Dzhemal, leader of the National Islamic Committee, said on TV in Georgia, an independent country once part of the Society Union. “He is under the control of the power-wielding agencies, who have, in my opinion, organized a coup d’etat.”
Dzhemal, quoted in Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, pointed the finger squarely at ex-FSB head Nikolai Patrushev. According to Dzhemal’s account, Patrushev met with the anti-Putin Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov on Wednesday “and tempted him over to his side.”
If Vladimir Putin is indeed still alive...rumors have it he may be in Switzerland where
"the Russian president had fathered a child with his long-term girlfriend"
Which would also make us wonder about his mental health. I have to wonder if the economic problems aren't making him a little wacko.
"A huge cut and paste fest amounts to nothing other than you are disturbed about the decline in Intel's share price."
[As disturbed as you, Lucy, over the increase in Intel's stock price from $19.23? During which time you were consistently bearish.]
"Intel is obviously doing whatever it takes. A recent rumor that Intel “could be getting LTE modems into Apple’s iPhone in 2016” would be a huge deal, if true. "
[They say it's a huge deal.]
"What's ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE is for Intel shares to reach $22."
The last people to know what will happen now will be Lucy and the pinheads without shares.
Back in January 2013 we posted a report titled "Apple Preparing Low Cost iPhone for Emerging Markets." We noted that there were rumors out of Asia's supply chain claiming that Apple was working on a low-cost version of the iPhone aimed at emerging markets with China being Apple's first focus. New information surfacing yesterday now supports the initial rumor.
According to a new report by VentureBeat, "Intel will provide the fast wireless modem chip for a new Apple smartphone in 2016." The thing is, this won't be a standard iPhone according to the report.
Intel has been gunning hard during the past year for a place in the iPhone and now appears to have succeeded, at least partly. The 7360 chip will ship inside a special version of the iPhone that will be marketed to emerging markets in Asia and Latin America," the sources said.
Intel's new 7360 LTE modem will occupy a socket on the new iPhone's circuit board that's long been reserved for Qualcomm chips. Intel's 7360 LTE modem chip is capable of 450 megabits per second (mbps) of download speed, and supports Category 9/10 LTE and 3X carrier aggregation. Industry analysts have told VentureBeat that the chip has impressed phone makers for being well built, power efficient, and fast.
For months Apple engineers have been making trips to Munich, Germany to work with Intel engineers to ready the Intel LTE chip for the iPhone, one of our sources said.
