I'm thinking about the global economy during lunch today.

"In a blog post earlier this week, Olivier Blanchard, a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, pointed out that exports to China make up less than two per cent of U.S. G.D.P., so even a serious slowdown in China shouldn’t be a big drag on the American economy."

Uniting a Mysterious Ring With Its Rightful Owner http://nyti.ms/1GHA65J

I almost didn't read this. 
When the writer receives the gift by mistake, her attempts to return it take on added significance because of a 25th wedding anniversary and a death.

What some will stop doing in hopes of making a lot of money. Good people are losing their jobs! Super models have to (lightly) eat too!

"GoDaddy’s image makeover is part of the plan behind the IPO, according to people close to the company. Commercials with model Bar Refaeli and race-car driver Danica Patrick are gone."
Customers recognize GoDaddy from ads with Danica Patrick and others but the web-hosting firm now hopes a $20-a-share IPO will help its transition to serious small business Web partner.

At times, I've been surprised by the amount of ammunition some people carry with their holstered handgun. Obviously, I'm not seeing what's being concealed.

"...Kansas joins Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming in having such a policy."
Kansas will become the fifth state to allow its residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit throughout the state.

The Fire TV Stick arrived from +Amazon.com earlier today. A Chromecast will remain the primary streaming source on this television, but I am pleased with the new device.

If I use the forth HDMI connection on this television, I will have an AppleTV, Chromecast, FireTV Stick and Roku 2 consolidated to a single room. And yes, that seems excessive to me too.

A Roku HD-XR continues to be a prominent device within my home. I use this device to stream content to my 27" Sony WEGA (480i) television.

A future Amazon Echo will likely go into this room too; I continue to wait for my reservation request to be accepted. Living alone certainly has its streaming benefits.
Fire TV Stick is a streaming media player with a dual-core processor, up to 1080p HD, certified Dolby Audio, and more. Shop now.

The article shares a great story about video games, Penn and Teller, and the opportunity to help young people.

"Desert Bus for Hope is now going into its seventh year, and has raised over a million dollars. “I liken it to AIDS walks,” said Teller. “When they first started, I think everyone was quite puzzled by them. Then people began to understand that performing a mundane task and having someone sponsor you is an interesting way to raise money.” "

Obamanet?

"Humility is rare because regulators like to regulate. But as the FCC discovered by giving in to Mr. Obama and adopting Obamanet, regulatory hubris can carry enormous costs—including to the reputations of the regulators."
In The Wall Street Journal’s Information Age column, L. Gordon Crovitz writets that the FTC’s decision not to sue Google showed a refreshing restraint. The FCC could learn from it.

Shale oil needs $50 a barrel to be profitable.

"The problem is that most of the shale oil production that is being added has break-even costs above $50 a barrel. This is a number supported by many energy analysts, and also attested to by the drastic drop in drilling rigs and the steep cuts in capital budgets for U.S. shale drillers as oil prices declined below $50 a barrel."
ROBERT RAPIER: As the price of West Texas Intermediate went into free fall in the second half of 2014, nobody had a clue where the price might stabilize. After all, in mid-2008 a similar free fall began that took WTI from nearly $150 a barrel into the $30s. As the price dipped below $50 a barrel, many analysts began suggesting oil could fall much lower.

I'm looking forward to trying this app.

"But the Android version is in preview only: to get it, you need to visit the Office Lens Android Preview page on Google+, sign up to be a tester (under “About this community”), and then follow the instructions."
After a year-long reign on Windows Phone, Microsoft's Office Lens is coming to Android handsets and iPhone.
