    An “expert” whose work on cybersecurity has been cited by the NY Times and the Washington Post announced on Twitter that the unvaccinated should be denied life-saving hospital treatment because they are “not fit for life on earth.” Chris Vickery, who describes himself as a “data breach hunter” also brags about how his “findings have contributed to investigations conducted by the FTC, FBI, SEC, Secret Service, HHS, SSCI, and more.” During an unhinged Twitter rant, Vickery asserted that a time limit of December 1st should be put on people refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine. “Set a date now.

    Over the last two weeks, 10 teams ranked in the top 15 have lost, including seven in the top 10.The last time the No. 1 team in the country lost to an unranked team was 2008. The last time Alabama lost to an unranked team was 2007. Texas A&M snapped both those streaks and brought true chaos to this college football season. The Aggies dragged a two-game losing streak into Kyle Field on Saturday night, looking like one of the most disappointing teams in the country. Then Texas A&M beat the mighty Crimson Tide, scoring almost as many points in...

    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has joined the FBI in the investigation of Pennsylvania’s biggest pension fund, subpoenaing records about its board’s adoption of a false figure for its financial performance — and about improper “compensation and gifts” possibly offered staff. State employees are forbidden from accepting such gifts under a ban imposed by Gov. Tom Wolf. The subpoena issued to the PSERS school pension plan Friday was the first indication that investigators are looking into possible presents or money from investment advisers and consultants. The FBI and federal prosecutors launched a criminal probe of the $70 billion PSERS...

    It was a rude awakening for the Texas Longhorns as they travelled to Fayetteville, Arkansas to face off with the Arkansas Razorbacks. The only thing they left town with besides a loss was the realization that they are most certainly not ready to compete in the SEC. Lucky for them, there still might be time to sneak in and shred the contract.

    Sen. Rand Paul revealed Wednesday in a disclosure that was more than a year overdue that his wife in February 2020 bought up to $15,000 worth of shares in Gilead, a biotech company that brought to market the first drug designed to treat COVID-19. Paul’s mandatory filing with the Senate shows that his wife purchased between $1,000 and $15,000 worth of Gilead stock on Feb. 26, 2020. Gilead’s antiviral drug remdesivir became the first COVID-19 specific treatment to win an emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration less that three months after the purchase in May 2020.

    Any day is a good day to celebrate the achievements of Alabama Football. The offseason is the most opportune time, with little attention drawn by a future game and a need to fill the long interval with Crimson Tide wonderings. Alabama football fans frequently speculate on Nick Saban’s eventual successor. As in not a replacement because no coach can ever replace Nick Saban. Tide fans discuss who might be worthy of following Saban and how far the Crimson Tide might fall when it happens. Instead of those conjectures, this post is about what Nick Saban has already done. Both in...
  • “You’d have to shut down the Internet” to ban Bitcoin, says SEC’s Hester Peirce

    Any of the government’s efforts to ban Bitcoin would be “foolish,” said Hester Peirce (aka “Crypto Mom”), a very Bitcoin-friendly commissioner at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), during a MarketWatch virtual conference earlier this week. “I think we were past that point very early on because you’d have to shut down the Internet,” Peirce said, adding, “I don’t see how you could ban it. You could certainly make the effort. It would be very hard to stop people from [trading Bitcoin]. So I think it would be a foolish thing for the government to try to do that.”The...

    Michael Burry's Twitter habit led to a visit from federal regulators. "The Big Short" investor has blasted Tesla, bitcoin, Robinhood, and meme-stock buyers. Burry indicated that he's not planning to tweet anymore. Michael Burry's incendiary tweets have piqued the interest of federal regulators, the investor revealed this week.

    The SEC charged Jessica Richman and Zachary Apte, the co-founders of the poop-testing startup uBiome, with defrauding investors out of $60 million through misleading statements and false representations of the company’s prospects.

Regulators submitted their filing in federal court in San Francisco, and are seeking to bar Richman and Apte from serving in future officer and director positions. Thursday’s indictment describes Richman and Apte as fugitives... Founded way back in 2012, uBiome burst onto...

    Once upon a time, stock trading served as a way for businesses to raise capital and for traders to make investments. If companies flourished, stocks rose and investors made money; if not, stocks fell and investors lost money. This was the way the stock market was intended to function. Over time, however, more and more rules and regulations were added, each to address something that at the time was thought necessary to prevent cheating and manipulation. Just like the proverbial “Road to Hell,” Wall Street became paved with regulatory good intentions. Instead of eradicating cheating, manipulation, and fraud every new...
