Thought you might be interested in this, since it kind of mentions UKIP and so forth.

Hi +Andrew Fear Please can you lift this article and put it into our Euro Economics section, I'll cover it in the Nightly News. Good link back to Mario's Negative Interest Rates, and references to BitCoin. Thanks mate.

Well, though the few days we had raining cherry blossoms are over, spring hasn't sprung till I see this:

I know what I'm going to graze on for breakfast tomorrow.  Candy!  Not one bit like the tiny dark green wood pencils they overprice at the stores.

I usually harvest them until the shoots start to get woody then let them grow the rest of the year in the container.... it gives the slugs something to munch on instead of the other veggies but doesn't hurt the plants

I used to trade, semi-pro (made plenty to live on).  I got out.  I saw this happening personally - even on low speed (1/sec) feeds, but also on Nanex.  Michael is telling truth here.  It's why I got out, and so have a lot of others.
However, the "bad guys" he mentions are being vilified so they can take the fall for the real crooks - the fed, and the government (and no, the federal reserve is not part of the government, they are as federal as fedex).

HI Doug,Im a micro scalper of the indices and I contacted globex today to talk with someone about another problem and scam thats going on, my broker reported over 500K volume on sp emini 500 but the ticks and market breath is moving so slowly. there was the time frame and period I was looking at the 5 second charts and the emini was trading at 9:45 am which is the highest volume ,supposedly on the day, made the same price close on 5 second charts 15 consecutive charts were moving at just 1 tick up and down. that is unheard of with 500K volume, who the hell is trading the indices and who the hell is bidding this indice to new highs on dreadfull volume? where is the volume that they report?? no one is trading, it seems a few people are playing bids with eachother. It's a joke. no brokers around the world are utilizing seel and buy programs at all. what happened to fibbonacci retracements, what happened to counter knee jerk reactions, profit taking ,why is this market not selling off and moving back up? it just bids up like a slow grind and basically trades like flatline.

Not news for many, but for this southern boy, waking up to see this - with a roaring fire in the same room.  Brrr.  Warmed up to 1.2F at sunrise.  But - all the prep paid off - my plumbing still works.  Most around here had no idea - plumbers are going to have too much work to do for a few days.
Our previous low since 1979 was 8F.  We saw -2 last night.  Yeah, I know you northern or midwest guys are going "Wuss" right now.  It's a matter of perspective.

I haven't kept up here as much as I'd like but yea, It was colder than usual in ohio too. I'm glad to know your little abode held on tight.

Yes, obviously if these numbers are "real" I have to really start sweating rad shielding even more than now.  This was ~4x out previous best output (again, if the numbers I was able to get are real) with 1/10th our normal net input power.  I have both RF and radiation issues (and rads are both neutrons and gammas).  Looking into that - I'm going to fix the RF first, as it's not as hard (I hope) and then I can trust my data aq and know if I really do have the other problem.  I'm already behind a lot of lead and leaded glass, but that doesn't do much for either neutrons or really hot gammas, and we have some because neutron capture in the hydrogen in our moderators for detectors makes 2.2 MeV gammas - takes a LOT of lead to stop that.  Even boron is in the .5-.6 MeV range when capturing slow neutrons (one of our detectors uses that for the detection mechanism).  Again, a 1/8th inch thick piece of lead - or a 3/8" thick lead-glass radiology window (backed by 3/4" pyrex) doesn't have much effect at those energies.  Just a little Compton scattering...

This is real science for ya - not always sure on the first go, since I know that some of my instruments didn't give me (good) data, yet some (silver activation) surely did.  So, replication first, then claims.  Credibility matters.

In the victorian age electricity was pseudo-science and stage-magic. The hollow sun theory might be fringe now, but I am pretty sure it wont be for much longer. The source of gravity is not inside the stars but surrounding it. Once we start revisitting this old idea, all the other parts of the puzzle will start falling into place. Our earth bound dogmas need a huge revision, and the most important will be our model of fusion. Sonic cavitation show us the first clues, sonoluminescence is the phenomena we need to understand. I will get around to building my own setup, but it will be a bit further into the future, and I am sure someone will get there before I can get the funding and experienced engineers to build anything. So till then I will wish you good luck, and I hope you find something worth sharing with the world.

Just a quickie on my Maytag, the most energy efficient washing machine on earth so far, as modified by me.

Necessity was and is the mother of a lot of cool (and not so cool) things.  This is one of the cool ones, I think, and it's even fun to use.  Kind of an event rather than purely a chore.  Certainly better than taking up room in a landfill - which are someday going to be our richest mines if things keep on as they are.

An update to this from more experience.  I finally do see 40+mpg running on gasoline, the Volt demanded I burn half a tank I'd bought the previous July to keep it from going stale, and it was 93 octane, no ethanol.  THAT gives the mileage, as the variable cam timing etc just crank the compression up till it's almost knocking and getting far better thermodynamic efficiency than with regular or anything with ethanol in it (which has far lower energy density/gallon than "real" gasoline.
I'm now in the 200's mpg for this year too, lifetime is taking awhile to catch up to that due to burning around 50 gallons of gasoline initially, before I had enough solar panels to run this on almost-always electricity.  I expect it'll "get there" in a year or two if I don't take any long road trips in it.  But you never know.  At any rate, it's already over twice the best you can do with a prius.  And it's a far nicer car that weighs more and is tons more quiet, comfortable, and did I say it handles like a dream for this old racer?

Just saw this myself.  No, I hate crack, I'm too wired as is.  And yes, this is all quite real - Gir is welcome to come and be irradiated by neutrons if he doesn't think it's real - I'll make all his jewelry so radioactive he'll be afraid to take it home (we use gold and silver as activation targets to prove we're making fusion in the first place, the electronics can be fooled by EMI).  This is my real name, and  you can ring me up on G+ for vidchats most evenings (EST) if you like.  Many people do, we have a lot of fun there when I'm not "at work" or whatever it is you call it I do during the day.  More on my own youtube channel - user there is DCFusor.

+Alexander Biersack The "second filament" is just another fusor grid, a poor one for fusion, but it's a great ion source due to the increased d in Paschen's pxd rule.  It's glowing in the pic because it's a lousy fusion grid and the wires get hit a lot by ions due to poor focus.
This 2nd grid, when things are "biased up" shows a power gain of about 100 if you think of the main grid and tank as a PNP tube (sort of, it's a plasma triode), with the "control" electrode being that second grid.  This is just electrical power gain, like most active devices have.
  
This means you can make the thing oscillate (maybe more than one frequency at a time) and I'm moving in the direction of a pops type of mode.  More on my website/forums under theories and actual fusor runs threads.  Most fusion seems to happen at the onsets - it then gets into a dynamic equilibrium that is poor for fusion (which no on has a credible theory for, but it's there to observe).  Thus, getting the thing to oscillate (see https://www.youtube.com/user/DCFusor) has just shown us gains in Q (defined as fusion per watt input) of around 2800 better than we had before - another record, and that was "first light" and no tuning of anything - just oscilatioin at some random frequency.  I expect it to get a lot better once we learn a little more and tune appropriately.  That was a relatively huge leap.  Incredible for a "first go" situation.  You'll do better watching my forums and youtube channel than here - this is getting awfully crowded and disorganized.

Running on the ragged edge. Several different kinds of oscillation - RF down to motorboat.
It appears we have a PNP "tube" with considerable power gain.

Leap-froggy technologies are so cute.  Jumping over the other little froggies and pushing around all those lazy little stupid envelopes.  Here's to the frog men!  Congrats, Doug.  You're getting greener all the time.
