Extremely useful online speed reading java applet. Any text you copy and paste into it is "flashed" one word at time as fast as you'd like. You can use it offline too by saving it in IE7 as a "Web Archive .mht file" to my local hard drive so it works when I'm disconnected from the internet.  [more]

1st Commercial-Scale Tidal Power Turbine; Ethanol DeathWatch Map; Flying Cars?; Electric Planes

July 19, 2008 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: GM , TM , F

 "The world’s first commercial-scale tidal turbine, developed by British tidal energy company, Marine Current Turbines, has delivered electricity onto the grid for the first time. In principle, SeaGen works much like an “underwater windmill” with the rotors driven by the power of the tidal currents rather than the wind. Conservative estimates suggest there is at least five gigawatts of power in tidal flows in Britain, but there could be as much as 15GW.  [more]

Oil Below $80? Just Close the Enron Loophole

July 08, 2008 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: OIH , DBC , XOM

On 30 Dec 07 my call was for $175 oil. I expected the run up due: 70% to expectation of war with Iran, 10% Enron loophole, 10% due to increased demand, 10% declining dollar. I now believe oil over $80 is +80% Enron Loophole. If you are long oil, or commodities, you might want to understand the Enron Loophole, very, very well. The Disciplined Investor has a Pod cast with Michael Greenberger, professor of law at Maryland University and former CFTC Director of the Division of Trading & Markets. The Podcast is an hour, but I listened to it 3 times, to ensure I was picking up everything. I will wager you a REC, this POD cast is worth listening to for ALL STOCKMARKET investors. If the Loophole is closed oil will drop like a rock. TDI Podcast 63: OIL-OIL-Enron Loophole-OIL-OIL

Many Indian and Chinese economists studied at Western universities. They are taught the Keynesian model of economics which includes Central banking inflation to promote growth and employment. They believe there can be a permanent prosperity, growth and near full employment if interests rates and money supply are manipulated by Central bankers/planners to varying levels.  [more]
