  • Sirius XM starting new weekly country feature with YouTube [View news story]
    Thanks for that explanation! Fits right into how I use the computer I am
    writing on today.

    Both U Tube and Google work well on this computer and at my location.

    I changed a setting on the computer and now have excellent U Tube reception. The colors are crisp------and clear!

    Yes, awesome!.

    How will the two interface?

    Are there subscriptions for each separately.

    Who pays whom? E.G. Will UTube pay Sirius or will Sirius pay UTube.

    Seems like a good idea. Need more info on the process.

  • Sirius XM hopeful it has funds to re-up Stern to new deal [View news story]
    Stern is at the point in his life where he needs to think about his legacy in helping the nation that funded him with subscriptions and getting the Satelite movement moving.

    Those funds should come from his personal wealth accumulated to help the
    current American Citizens here in America.

    Yes this is mixing apples and oranges to some extent-------but may be germane----he should look to families who helped to fund America throughout the decades. The Carnegie s, the Rockefeller's, the private foundations that give in silence-------rarely heard of -----until there is a
    need in America or a community.

    In the process some give back to the Siri stockholders who supported him.

  • This Housing Bubble Is Set To Pop [View article]
    The housinng crash started almost immediately after Mr. Obama moved into the White House..

    The realtors were greedy; the banks were greedy and the mortgage brokers were greedy and all tied in with the Freddie, Sallie and Fannie debacle.

    The next big factor were the 'Home Equity" loans as WAMU and others pushed loans based upon the equity a homeowner had in their homes.

    A lot of mismanagement and bad government decisions and non citizens working in these firms.

    My heart is broken over what is happening in France-----Europe is slowly being
    destroyed. I pray for my friends in Paris.

    America needs to wise up and close its borders now and no more immigrants
    pushed by Mr. O, the President in Title.

    Or, will it be up on the basis of France taking the action over the weekend to
    say no more------this is like a bad movie but it is real.

  • Paris hit with coordinated terrorist attacks [View news story]
    Wrong. This has all been tried to date and is not working.

    Our nation America is in shambles due to such policy.

    The kind of education that Sanders is advocating and Hillary is
    the communistic education.

    Just don't buy that scenario. One can't solve the problem by electing
    more of the same kind of people who created the problem.


    My heart is truly saddened by the attack on Paris. I had classmates from

  • John Malone Wants You, To Recapitalize Him [View article]
    What is stopping Malone from putting all of Siri into a tracking stock?

    They have the majority of the stock , yes? Or. no?

    Back to CEO Meyer's report, don't have the exact words, he indicated that Siri's
    business was what was being reported.

    But, if, Malone owns the majority of Siri's stock; then ------appears he can do
    what he wants with Siri. I don't like it-------but seems that may be the way it is.

    Of course there is Stern's position------I have read articles about whether or not
    he will decide to stay via negotiating with Siri.

    This is all about as clear as mud.

  • Sirius XM hopeful it has funds to re-up Stern to new deal [View news story]
    Go to the interview with Meyer, the CEO. He talks to share holders according to the interview. Express your opinion.

    I liked the interview-----Meyer focused on Siri.

    He did not get sidetracked with questions about the Liberty 's.

    I suspect he is a good negotiator.

  • Sirius XM hopeful it has funds to re-up Stern to new deal [View news story]
    Stern has always been off topic for some of us.

    I bought a little Siri not because of Stern but because of the
    technology. There was XM that did the Classical and jazz I love
    and there was Siri. Gradually we have the combination.

    Stern broached subjects that now would not raise eyebrows.

    Now the internet is so full of trash. So I work around it.

    I decided to watch a couple of his shows back then------he did a segment on
    breast implants----American women were obsessed with that medical procedure.
    The questions surrounding the yes or no were addressed by guess who ---Stern.

    If more women had viewed his show, some of the women who had botched
    operations could have been spared the agony.

    So I looked at the idea of taking talk and music to the sky. I felt like I was
    technologically seeing the future.

    Well here we are-----when the floods happened in New Orleans. I thought
    okay this is one big use for Satellite-----if only everyone had access to Satellite
    in their vehicles-----could it serve in such an emergency.

    Are we there today? I don't know.

    I would suggest to Stern and his lawyers they consider the long time share holders and not be greedy. Without the public shareholders who stood by Karmazin and Malone Siri would not exist today imo.

    As I pour through the stock market, Siri is now at the point that it is attracting
    attention as a long term investment. So once again I say to Stern and Malone remember the investors (small) who lobbied the FCC back then to save Sirius.

    I kid you not; hours were spent in writing and talking to the FCC to smooth the
    way and networking with other stockholders.

  • Sotheby's: Going Nowhere Since 1989 [View article]
    Getting an appraisal , evaluation, and an unbiased one is the most difficult
    aspect of selling art.

    We buy art because of it's personal appeal to the buyer and even for specific reasons. My first piece of art was a birthday present for my husband. I walked in a local gallery----they were going out of business. There was a wonderful painting done by a young man who had spent time in the Carribean. I glanced around the gallery and within five minutes bought the painting.

    Gradually, I collected a little more------no master pieces but wonderful art.

    Later had an art dealer to come in to see what I had collected amassed.

    His comment--------great art; but not of value until after the artist dies.
    or maybe after I die.

    Of course at that point the art is swooped up and sold for more value than
    I will ever get.

    Would I buy BID now-------been watching for about a year.

    Had some BID and made a profit-----am a watcher now.

  • Cardica's (CRDC) CEO Julian Nikolchev on Q1 2016 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I just read the transcript presented with the followup phone calls by investors on Seeking Alpha.

    For common shareholders, it appears that the potential delisting is being dealt with in the hopes of not being delisted.

    The new CEO laid out a general time line for their plans . Suggest reviewing the transcript for that time line. I have read it now need to put it down in chronological order------noted on a calendar.

    Thank you to Seeking Alpha for providing the transcript of the the CRDC Conference Call with CRDC. Very informative.

    Thank you for your article about BID.

    A couple of short questions-----Does Mr. Taubman still have an interest in Sotheby?

    Thanks for your reply. I had our family in BID when he took the original interest.

    I was very skeptical of his leadership and eventually sold based mainly on technical

    Do you have a link for the bio for the new CEO?
