    Might he know something we don't?  This could be an indicator of a positive payrolls number tomorrow.

    Author’s reply » Prior to this announcement I wouldn't have been surprised if the number was positive, but now I would be surprised if it wasn't. Unfortunately, I purchased some volatility hedges for my portfolio today; now I wish I had waited until tomorrow.

    The Fiat patent fraud. About the Fiat hybrids: the technology double clutch with electric motor between has been stolen by a patent that Fiat Company has never wanted to purchase, but only shamelessly to copy. This hybrid solution will be the basic technology with Chrysler's electric and hybrid car program. Please give a look in my blog where the "vitality" and boldness of the Fiat planners it appears in all of evidence: dualsymbioticelectrome.../
    If the industries can afford unpunished to copy the ideas and defending it need very expensive trial, to which target need the patents? How to defend the rights of private inventors? How our young people can find intellectual courage if the economic potentates crush the rights of the single ones? Whoever is about to ask for a patent or wants to propose a proper patent to a big firm I suggest to give a look to my experience with the Fiat, to get able to operate with better adroitness. Thanks and good time to everybody. Ulisse Di Bartolomei
