  • EU foreign policy chief to visit Cuba [View news story]
    What have so called sanctions achieved in the last 50yrs?. Folks that have not lived or experienced autocratic government tend to always question how difficult could it be to rid a dictator. We have seen over thousands of years of history that the only way is a revolution. Sanctions mostly end up punishing the unintended victims that were / are meant to be saved.
    A new approach is what the president is trying and it is a whole lot better than the ineffective sanctions. Swallow our pride and admit that sanctions has failed to deliver the desired results.

    If you wanna know how it works , go read this http://bloom.bg/1C8k73e . Most of the warrants on this are expected to be converted @ less than a dollar based on the filings. In my humble opinion any spike up should be sold and exited if you are in and haven't done so already.

    I was being sarcastic. It is a worthless company that should have closed down years ago.

    And the facade continues. Hopefully in our lifetime a working commercial product will be sold & shipped. Santa, you heard my wish.

    It is going to continue to retrace down. When you get an explosive parabolic rise like that especially after a reverse split, it means the shorts sent it to the moon to maximize profit. Expect it to go back to pre rev split level before any significant uptrend, barring any major positive development from the company.

  • Google co-founders to sell $4.4B of stock [View news story]
    You are a true bonafide "isheep" . There is a reason for wall street valuation of some of the tickers you mentioned and that is a near monopoly with negligible competitors. Not that I support or agree with some of those valuations but that is what Wall street likes and rewards. Apple has competition but right now it is still able to squash most of them .Once cellphones become truly commoditized like a lot of Chinese manufacturers(xiaomi, etc.) are pushing towards , Apple's over sized profit reliance on cellphones will also be her Achilles heel if it does not diversify successfully.

  • Saudi King passes away [View news story]
    In terms of Arabs scientific contribution to humanity, there are many which are the rudiments of mathematics and astronomy that we use today. You should also be aware that "history is often written by victors of war" .You can google those contributions and you find them.
    In terms of women not being allowed to drive , I read a response on a storyhttp://http://huff.to/1Cz6M3f the Queen of England got behind the wheels of her Range rover to give the dead king a tour and scared the jeebies out of him) posted on yahoo a few days ago, that stated some of the reasons it has been difficult to change that law are
    A) since men are not allowed to touch non family female members , it would be almost impossible to police them if there is any problem.
    b)I believe the guy also mentioned something about female cops and male cops cannot be in the same room together ( I might be wrong on this one.
    Nevertheless those 2 reasons are still excuses that could be overcome once they have enough of the populace accepting the changes. It is no different with our folks here denying gays the right to marry, slowly more of us are more accepting of their rights . Keep in mind how difficult it is for humans to accept changes. From what i can recall some ultra right wing Orthodox Jews (Hasidic Jews) also practice similar treatment of women in Israel and here in New York.
    Patience and understanding will change them one day.

    I apologize for my uncouth response. I promise to be civil from now on. Just to let you know I grew up in Africa and have experienced similar regime, so am quite familiar with the intricacies of such. Am also very familiar with atrocities and injustice carried out covertly by our CIA in other countries while claiming to "defend American interests". There is a possibility I am probably more versed & unbiased on these topics than you are, based on having lived in both sides.

    Will you just shut the heck up about folks supporting the killing of innocent people on 9/11. You need to stop looking @ things from just your perspective. You are the kind that all you see in USA is good but only bad in others. We are not perfect but we are the closest to one out there, does not not mean we don't have our faults. Try to be objective and impartial for one.

    According to reports have read, the guy was more moderate than any of his predecessors before him but faced staunch opposition from religious knucleheads.
    It is ironic that a lot of folks lambast Saudis' about this "Obama (and other presidents) are supposedly all about "women's rights" but "our friends" don't allow women in Saudi Arabia any freedom. They can't even drive cars." but here in America the so called "protector of rights & choices",lots of folks deny gays marriage rights and women abortion rights. Are we really that righteous to judge, are we any better or just a little further along in true universal rights & choices for all

    It is also ironic that God who the extreme religious right in America & the extremist knuckleheads in Islam/Saudi claim to be defending, gives all humans the free choice to worship him or not.
    Funny thing is both sides are always eager to declare war on each other. Fox news has been very eager to have USA declare war on their nemesis in Islam even though they share very similar views.
