  • Ukrainians Are Selling US Heavy Duty Arms On The Black Market – Can Take Out A Tank/Helicopter, Discount Sale Price 30K

    Russia is being hit hard by Ukraine‘s Javelin anti-tank missiles. What makes this weapon so powerful? The U.S.-made FGM-148 Javelin is one of the premier portable anti-tank missile systems in the world. It’s also an expensive piece of kit, with each missile typically costing more than the targets it eliminates. However, corruption is the main problem that every country has to fight with and the Ukrainians are no different! The expensive javelins have allegedly found their way into the black market on the Internet. Telegram channels have repeatedly reported that military equipment is being sold by the Ukrainians. The sales...

    The White House defended President Joe Biden’s son Hunter for selling $375,000 worth of his artwork, despite questions about the ethics surrounding his newfound career. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the buyers of Hunter’s art would remain anonymous, as part of the “purview of the gallarist” showing his paintings.

    A Century City home owned by Don Rickles, the late funnyman known for his insult comedy, just surfaced for sale at $6.5 million. It’s the first time the villa has hit the market since it was built three decades ago. Following Rickles’ death in 2017, the home was owned by his widow, Barbara, who died earlier this year. The 5,600-square-foot residence is one of 36 Mediterranean-style homes in Century Woods Estates, a guard-gated enclave tucked under the high-rise Century building. Earlier this year, the home of late actress Rhonda Fleming hit the market there for $12 million. Gated and walled,...

    Key Points: Expired food is regularly sold to consumers via third-party vendors on Amazon. Amazon's marketplace has grown to millions of sellers, making it hard for the company to adequately police the platform. Many brands have grown so frustrated by the abundance of expired products that they're taking steps to clean up the marketplace themselves. ------------------------------------------------- Amazon's sprawling marketplace, consisting of millions of third-party sellers, has become a go-to site for many grocery shoppers, especially since the company's acquisition of Whole Foods over two years ago. But an increasing number of consumers are finding that, just as the broader Amazon...

    Last May, T-Mobile promised to stop selling its subscribers’ location data after reports surfaced that it was being funneled to law enforcement officers who’d otherwise need a warrant to get it. But that hasn’t happened so far. ... AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have reportedly all agreed to do this. But at this point, who can believe them? ... Now, almost every major teleco is being forced to reckon with their own negligence by severing all ties to these so-called “location aggregators,” which have paid god knows what for access to our whereabouts.

    The Roomba is generally regarded as a cute little robot friend that no one but dogs would consider to be a potential menace. But for the last couple of years, the robovacs have been quietly mapping homes to maximize efficiency. Now, the device’s makers plan to sell that data to smart home device manufacturers, turning the friendly robot into a creeping, creepy little spy. While it may seem like the information that a Roomba could gather is minimal, there’s a lot to be gleaned from the maps it’s constantly updating. It knows the floor plan of your home, the basic...

    Gatter: '$50’s on the low end, $50 [per specimen] was like 12 years ago'! The costs of baby organs increased dramatically in the last ten years, a Planned Parenthood executive said in video released by the Center for Medical Progress on Wednesday. In 2014, undercover videographers posing as organ procurers captured Planned Parenthood executive Dr. Mary Gatter discussing the cost of "specimens" obtained following abortion. When the pro-life activists mention $50 as the going rate for each specimen, Gatter informs them that costs have jumped over the last decade. "You know, you have to pay a little money to use...

    WHEN I STARTED doing asylum work almost 20 years ago, the comfortable cocoon that had been built around me by the nuns and then Bryn Mawr and then my first few jobs in the courtroom and classroom began to crumble. ~snip~ Asylum work heightens your perception of evil, and at the same time teaches you to expect it in unexpected places. Hannah Arendt once famously talked about the banality of evil, and she was right. It is not just the towering Hitlers, Stalins, Pol Pots, Mao Tse-tungs and Robert Mugabes who are capable of gross inhumanity. The capacity for evil...

    Stem Express It didn’t take long for Stem Express, the California-based company caught buying aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood, to get back in business online. Stem Express, which LifeNews reported offline on Wednesday is back online today—advertising the sale of the same baby livers, Deborah Nucatola so callously went on about during her salad and red wine lunch. Planned Parenthood’s baby livers, advertised by Stem Express, are going for anywhere from $565 to $2433. Hard to believe they’re back so soon. Perhaps Stem Express principals are emboldened by the nepotism of their Planned Parenthood /Republican Party connections.
  • The Selling of the New Hillary

    Joe McGinnis, a young writer who got access to the advertising agency with the Nixon account in 1968, changed the way we thought about electing presidents with his best-seller, "The Selling of the President." The very idea that a presidential candidate could be packaged like a tube of toothpaste, a can of shaving cream or a pack of cigarettes was shocking. Americans held elections as something close to a sacred trust, and the cover of the McGinnis book featured Richard Nixon's face on that pack of cigarettes, suggesting (this was before "Mad Men") that Madison Avenue would stoop even so...
  • Why Is A Saudi Prince Selling Out Of News Corp?[Fox News}

    Forbes ^ | 02/04/15 | Chris Wright
    Few individual investors have quite as much capital to deploy as Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. Through his Kingdom Holding , he holds significant stakes in companies including Citigroup C -0.41%, Twitter TWTR +1.28% – and, until recently, News Corporation. The Prince hasn’t sold out completely – he still owns about 1% of the company, as well as a separate 6.6% shareholding in 21st Century Fox Inc which in itself is worth about $1.7 billion – but he previously also held 6.6% of News Corp NWSA 0%, or a total of 13.184 million class B shares. He’s shed...

    The biggest misconception that we hear or read about is that "all ivory is ILLEGAL to own, buy or sell". If you believe this statement then I will be selling a beautiful bridge, located in New York, on EBAY next week... no reserve! In the next few paragraphs I have put together a simple summary of the INTERNATIONAL and U.S.FISH & WILDLIFE laws which regulate the commerce of ivory, which in turn is regulated by C.I.T.E.S. (Convention on the International Trade in endangered Species) and the 'Marine Mammal Protection Act'. C.I.T.E.S. is an organization that was formed in 1973 as...
  • Insider Selling At Yelp Is A Non-Issue

    Insider selling in Yelp (YELP) was identified as a concern in a recent article. In the comment section it was put forward by an apparent Yelp skeptic that these executives could stop the automatic selling in their 10b5-1 trading plans if they really felt the stock is undervalued. In reply, a Yelp defender pointed out that it is "very typical, insider selling at this point... People sell for all kinds of reasons, buying a house, sending kids to college, taking deserved profit to diversify holdings." Indeed one can say there has been significant selling in Yelp but only by...

    This is worrisome because corporate insiders — officers, directors and the largest shareholders — presumably know more about their companies’ prospects than the rest of us do. If they were confident that the shares of their companies would soon be trading markedly higher, they wouldn’t be selling them now. Yet selling they are — at an alarming pace. snip To be sure, insiders have been selling heavily for several weeks now, and the market has continued to rise — including the Dow’s eclipsing of the 14,000 level in recent sessions. This surprising strength in the face of insider selling has...

    From The Orlando Sentinel: That has prompted NASA to advertise a long list of KSC facilities and equipment as available for use, lease or, in some cases, outright purchase by the right business. Among them: Launch Pad 39A, where shuttles were launched; space in the Vehicle Assembly Building, the iconic 526-foot-tall structure first used to assemble Saturn V-Apollo rockets; the Orbiter Processing Facilities, essentially huge garages where the shuttles were maintained; Hangar N and its high-tech test equipment; the launch-control center; and various other buildings and chunks of undeveloped property. A lot of the stuff needs to be transferred by...

    The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today the release of its latest ad, 'Selling Access', another two-minute web video aimed at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, calling him out as a corrupt Washington insider who got rich through influence-peddling. The video, which the campaign plans to promote prominently on conservative web sites, includes a clip of Gingrich calling himself an 'insider' and another in which the former Speaker brags about getting paid $60,000-a-speech. The video comes after the viral success of Paul's earlier web ad, 'Serial Hypocrisy', which criticizes Gingrich for many of the same issues.
