    ISTM FPA that at some point the people say the hell with the Troika, IMF, EZ, ... it's more important to eat, support your family, have opportunities to improve yourself and your kin, ...

    Then support for any current government must wane and alternatives will be sought, found and istituted.

    It's a matter of time and number of cycles I think.

    "the current currency climate likely makes it even harder for a US based company to do business in China"

    Only if you are selling into China stuff that was manufactured outside China, say in the U.S., and have to price and sell in dollars stuff that was made at, e.g. USD prices.

    If the stuff is manufactured in China, say final assembly, rare earth magnets, ... those are bought with strong dollars (maybe - could be bought in country with Yuan I guess) and a substatial part of the cost is China-local, so the USD effect is reduced, making price more attractive in China (and elsewhere too if transportation isn't too expensive).

    This would help in penetrtion of the China markets for buses, mining equipment, etc.

    Further, if capacity is sufficient and trnsport costs are reasonable, some product could be exported from China, with the lower cost-basis, and exported around the world, including into the U.S. And in the U.S. they would be cheaper, as long as the dollar remains strong, possibly helping sales here at home.

    The trick is to not get the IP stolen and not lose jobs here at home due to that.

    D lane: Yes!

    Should be a joint venture I would think.

    CN: I was also busy and didn't find it until about 1 hour after release.

    What I really want to see is something out of their China initiatives, but I'm expecting nothing for at least six more months.

    Hope I'm wrong though.

    "The biggest downward revision (-.7%) came in 2013—the height of the Federal Reserve’s most aggressive bond buying program in history. Way to go Ben and Janet!"

    As much as I dislike/distrust the Fed, and much of what they were/are doing, "correlation is not causation" should be kept in mind.

    They certainly could have caused, or aided and abetted, the weak growth, but that's one of those "known unknowns" here.

    "organic ..." yep, but from my pool experience, it's optional.

    Algae seems to start regardless. BTW, it comes in brown and black too - the latter requiring copper-based (or other metallic) algaecide usually to get rid of it.

    The "organics" just speed the process and enhance the "lushness" of the crop.

    With today's technology we could make biofuel out of it quite economically. :-))

    "Does stupidity ever go away?"

    No, it propagates too quickly, like algae in a pond - one day it's clear and suddenly, green scum everywhere.

    Chatter on the tube mentions Chinese dumping as one cause. Nucor CEO also mentioned it recently making the stell sector tough.

    So if Chinese have their own met coal industry (or alternative suppliers?), which I don't know, or if they have overcapacity and price pressures are in play, I can see Chi producers producing less high-quality steel (requiring less met coal).

    Don't know - just speculating.

    No meat, but I didn't know UQM played here: "Siemens, UQM Technologies, General Electric, Schottel, Rolls-Royce, Imtech Marine, BAE Systems, Caterpillar, Alewijnse, Aspin Kemp & Associates, Torqeedo, and Steyr Motors are some of the major players in the global marine hybrid propulsion market profiled in this report".

    LT; Didn't know if you caught this or not - just did an IPO and on the interview talked about enabling the "killer cells", a subset of "T" cells that had receptors that identify cancerous cells. Also talked about how they had receptors that could disable them and the cancer cells had "learned" to activate the disabling receptors (I hope I've explained that right).

    The company has learned to reactive the killer cells, grow them and put back into play.

    Price after IPO rose hugely, but that wasn't my purpose here. Thought you might want to investigate.
