    Forth Worth Star-Telegram ^ | July 2, 2019 | Luke Ranker
    Mayor Betsy Price called for the resignation of Human Relations Commission member Mike Steele on Tuesday, hours after Steele’s demeaning and offensive Facebook posts drew attention. Steele’s Facebook posts drew public scrutiny when Emily Farris, a Texas Christian University political science professor, began tweeting screenshots of them. She said she was appalled to see Steele’s public profile, calling his posts “racist, sexist, transphobic, and anti-immigrant.” Steele said he did not plan to resign. He touted his military service in the Gulf War, saying he is a disabled combat veteran, and mentioned his time as a Watauga city councilman. He said...

    Bitcoin climbed close to $7,600 on Sunday, according to industry website CoinDesk. The world’s most-valuable cryptocurrency is now up nearly 90% since the start of the year. One analyst says bitcoin could soar as high as ”$50,000 or $100,000,” as it’s only “in the early part of its cycle.” Bitcoin has jumped above $7,000, continuing a stunning comeback for the cryptocurrency in 2019. The virtual currency climbed close to $7,600 on Sunday, according to industry website CoinDesk. It’s since pared gains, but is still holding above that $7,000 level. It marks yet another move higher for the world’s most-valuable cryptocurrency,...

    The Scottish Journal ^ | Mar 28, 2019 | T S Jadmin
    The main salmon farmer in Scottish waters has reported a sharp fall in the tonnage produced last year, much of that due to the problems with sea lice. Mowi’s annual report reveals the amount of gutted salmon it produced from Scottish waters fell by 36%. In 2017, the total weight of gutted salmon from Scotland was 60,186 tonnes but last year it was 38,444. According to Mowi, the total supply of salmon from all the country’s farms was 138,200 tonnes, down 13.4%. -snip- Mowi’s annual report said the incidents which raised fish mortality during last year included anaemia, fish damaged...

    It’s a tuna takedown. On Thursday, the Justice Department announced that food company StarKist Co. could pay a fine of as much as $100 million after pleading guilty to fixing prices on canned tuna from 2011 through at least 2013. StarKist, which has agreed to cooperate with the investigation, is the second company to plead guilty in this case: Bumble Bee did so last year and was fined $25 million for participating in the fishy conspiracy. The extent of the conspiracy, and the effect on consumers, has not been disclosed, but that does not change this core truth: the scheme...

  • Is Amazon Prime worth its new $119 price tag?

    MarketWatch ^ | 4/27/18 | Jacob Passy
    Free two-day shipping may be enticing, but it doesn’t necessarily justify the higher price tag for an Amazon Prime membership. Amazon AMZN, +3.60% raised the annual fee for its Prime membership program for the first time since 2014 — but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s less of a bargain for most consumers. The online retailer announced that it will hike the annual fee for a Prime membership in the U.S. by 20% to $119. The change comes as Amazon revealed that it now has more than 100 million people globally who are members of the program. In January, Amazon raised...

    The Economic ^ | 12/17/17 | Michael Snyder
    Would you rather own 100% of Wal-Mart or every Bitcoin in existence?  At one point such a question would have been completely absurd, but now things have changed.  As I write this article, Wal-Mart has a market cap of 287.68 billion dollars.  Wal-Mart is the king of the retail industry in America, and nobody else is even close.  Bitcoin, on the other hand, is an entirely digital creation that did not even exist until 2009.  No government or central bank in the entire world recognizes it as a legitimate currency, and there are very, very few retail establishments that are...

    Bitcoin broke 19,000k today for the first time. In the last week alone it's up just shy of $5,000. Even though the price was impressive what got my attention was that fact that investment banks Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and even the Bank of America are now getting in crypto currency. Today I see more and more companies accepting bitcoins than even a year ago. So I through I would throw some money that will not hurt me to lose to see what happens. For the record, had I invested 2K last January 2017 when bitcoin was $1k I would...
  • $10K Bitcoin By 2018? Looks Like Tim Draper Was On The Money

    Fobes ^ | 11/26/17 | Jesse Damiani
    As Bitcoin values continue to climb, the prophecy by the 'Nostradamus of the markets' is coming true. In September of 2014, in an interview with Fox Business, Tim Draper claimed Bitcoin would hit $10,000 USD in three years. To put that in perspective, Bitcoin was worth $413 USD at the time of the interview. Even strong believers in bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general were skeptical of such massive overall growth—particularly after the intense fluctuations the market, like the crash of 2011, in which the cryptocurrency declined in value by 94 percent. Well, today, Bitcoin surged past $9,000—having increased well over...

    The new .22 rimfire plant in Lewiston, Idaho, is on line. Vista Outdoors owns the CCI and Federal rimfire brands. They have increased production for both brands by 20 percent. With end of the Obama administration, the .22 ammunition bubble is deflating. Most stores have ammunition available.

    The headline in The Washington Post dates back to March 21, 2014. It reads: Personal FBI flights for Holder and other Justice officials went unreported The story begins: The agency that tracks federal travel did not report hundreds of personal and other “nonmission” trips aboard government planes for senior Justice Department officials including Attorney General Eric Holder and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, according to a watchdog report. Congress’s nonpartisan Government Accountability Office determined that the 395 flights cost taxpayers $7.8 million. But the General Services Administration, which oversees trips aboard federal jets, did not require documentation because of a...

    All the war talk is turning out to be great for bitcoin. It's been on fire since January, 2017 when it for the first time reached $1,000 U.S. Dollars. It's now worth 3 times the price of gold. I bet it will be up to $5,000 in early September and over $7,000 by the end of October. We will see how it plays out.

    Dallas proclaimed itself the first “human rights county” in Texas. The commissioners court embraced the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, an initiative that claims to cultivate communities worldwide, although the Geneva-based Human Rights Council (HRC) has come under fire for anti-Israel bias and member countries with poor records. “Human rights abuses occur in our community, our country, and our world every day,” said Democrat Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who pushed the resolution to a vote on July 5. “We must lead at the local level. We can’t do everything but we can all do something.” Democrat commissioners...

    The bulk of the decline in gasoline prices can be thanked on a recent plunge in crude oil prices as concern over weak demand and high supply has offset sentiment about last November’s OPEC production cuts. The number of U.S. rigs drilling stands at 877, a rise of 7 in the last week, but 462 more rigs- 111% more- than a year ago. While OPEC cut oil production, U.S. and Canadian oil companies have filled the gap, leaving OPEC to lose market share. How long the charade continues is up to OPEC, who will decide in a few weeks whether...

    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didn’t vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldn’t vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldn’t be able to run for office, but since he’s a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.

    Last week, Edward Price, a former CIA analyst, became a media darling after the Washington Post published Price’s op-ed announcing his resignation from the CIA because he was unable to serve the Trump administration in good faith because of President Trump’s policies and disregard for the U.S. Intelligence Community. While several media outlets rushed to interview Price and depict him as an ethical, non-political CIA officer who rejected what he claimed was the “deceitful” and “delusional” Trump administration, a brief look at the facts suggest not only is this a blatant instance of fake news, but that Price is a...

    Trump’s actions in office have been even more disturbing. His visit to CIA headquarters on his first full day in office, an overture designed to repair relations, was undone by his ego and bluster. Standing in front of a memorial to the CIA’s fallen officers, he seemed to be addressing the cameras and reporters in the room, rather than the agency personnel in front of them, bragging about his inauguration crowd the previous day. Whether delusional or deceitful, these were not the remarks many of my colleagues and I wanted to hear from our new commander in chief. I couldn’t...
