The oligarch recovery: most Americans can't afford to live in any metro area in the US:

(The cover below is being used as an example of what's wrong - I certainly don't think that Ben Bernanke is a hero - quite the opposite.)
We were told we needed to bail out Wall Street in order to save Main Street. Well the results are in... Wall Street has never done better, and Main Street has never done worse.

I own $BABA and I'm holding it for the long term. This article suggests why that's a good idea.

Disclaimer: I don't own enough of it to trigger any trading laws, and this is all based on readily available information anyway.
Alibaba’s stock price fell below its IPO price for the first time on Monday with the company’s durable competitive advantage set to reward investors.

I'm making my survey response public +SpaceVR (but not the reward levels). I already signed my name to it, and I must say that I'm very disappointed in the cancellation of the existing kickstarter and the start of the new one. I was eagre to be a backer before - not so much this time.

I know I already posted about this, but switching back to Gmail from Inbox is SO much less stress.

"If central banks purchase stocks in order to support equity prices, what is the point of having a stock market? The central bank’s ability to create money to support stock prices negates the price discovery function of the stock market."

While it does negate it, it also makes it fairly easy to "ride" the central bank purchases & sales to make a lot of really easy fake money.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-08-24/paul-craig-roberts-central-banks-have-become-corrupting-force
As asset bubbles are in the way of the Fed’s policy, a decline in stock prices removes the equity market bubble and enables the Fed to print more money and start the process up again. On the other hand, the stock market decline could indicate that the players in the market have comprehended that the stock market is an artificially inflated bubble that has no real basis. Once the psychology is destroyed, flight sets in.

Hilarious #stylusgate  take by BGR on what the press release would look like it Apple released the flawed #GalaxyNote5 . (I'm glad I decided to stay away from that one from the start.)

http://bgr.com/2015/08/28/galaxy-note-5-design-flaw/
The media just loves to take the ball and run with it when Apple makes mistakes. Meanwhile, Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 issues weren't even covered by mainstream media. That leaves us wondering... what...

The US now ranks 20th on the Freedom Index:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-08-28/us-falls-behind-canada-finland-and-hong-kong-human-freedom-index

I moved to the UK, and it was a step up to 9th - and I knew it would at least be a step up.

The United States lags far behind other developed countries in terms of personal, civil and economic freedoms, according to a study released this month. Its neighbor to the north, for example, ranked 14 spots ahead of the so-called “Land of the Free.”

Why I Switched Back to #Gmail from #Inbox @inboxbygoogle

Yeah, not so much. When Google made Inbox available to everyone, I jumped at the chance to use it. I had put in for an invite, but never gotten one. (This was all the stranger when I had also applied on my wife’s behalf, and she had gotten one though we…

(I also posted this review to Trip Advisor.) This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Limassol. Slightly tucked away off the main road across from the Four Seasons hotel, this place looks unassuming from the outside. Blended in with the dozens of other local eateries, it quickly stands out once you start eating. My wife and I went in February, so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The kitchen was staffed by an older gentleman (presumably the proprietor) and a younger man (presumably his son). The menu was the first evidence that this is a quality establishment - instead of a slapdash listing of food like many places on the island, it was a well-bound thick book with Greek and English, and pictures where appropriate. We had hummus with pita bread and garlic bread as appetizers. The garlic bread was crisp and delicious, and slightly burnt around the edges to maximise the flavour. The pita bread was the perfect warm temperature, and contrasted with the colder hummus quite nicely. The hummus itself had just the right amounts of olive oil and paprika, and held its own aside from the bread. My wife's fish soup was delicious, with the fish complemented highly with the choice of vegetables, in a well-rounded flavour profile that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. I had the dolames, which is shredded pork and rice wrapped in vine leaves and cooked in a hearty tomato sauce, which came with a plate of vegetables (salad-like, but more than salad) and potato wedges. It's tough to describe the flavour combinations that were evoked with the dolames, except to say that I don't know that I've ever had all the parts of my tongue working together like that before. There was a tzatziki sauce on the side that somehow made it even better (adding to the texture and muting the temperature just a bit in a good way) and it was simpy fantastic, insofar as words are inadequate to do the experience justice. On asking for the bill, we were given complimentary galaktoboureko, a sweet dessert which neither of us had room for until we actually tried the first bite. Suddenly, we found the room, and the plates were both empty in a couple of minutes. We both wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Moving to the UK from the States was far easier than it would have otherwise been without Foxtons. The ability to do everything online meant that other than seeing the property I could do everything without having to travel overseas (and this included documents & fees). Their service was helpful and friendly, and I recommend them highly!
