    In Pamplona, rumour has it that Hemingway never ran in front of the bulls during the festival of San Fermín. It’s an urban myth: he did run – several times. What is not true is that he was injured, as he would later claim to a news agency. In fact, Hemingway was close enough to the action to witness a man being gored by a bull in 1924. This was actually the very first fatality in the modern history of the encierro, as the running of the bulls is called in Spanish.

    DETROIT -- Lions running back Reggie Bush, who has been outspoken about the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, continued his outspoken nature Sunday when he wore a shirt reading "I Can't Breathe" during pregame warm-ups Sunday. Bush wrote the message -- in black ink on his blue shirt -- signifying the last words of Eric Garner, the New York man who died while being placed in a chokehold as he was being arrested. Bush wore the shirt a day after Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose wore an "I Can't Breathe" T-shirt in pregame warm-ups prior to his team's game Saturday night...

    Here's The Latest Look At The 'Real' Mega Bears Joe Weisenthal May 20, 2013, 5:51 AM This is a chart that people don't much look at these days. It's updated semi-regularly by Doug Short, and it compares the great US bear market (starting in 2000) with the great Nikkei bear and the Great Depression bear. For awhile all 3 were looking very similarly, but at this point it's clear. The US has broken away from history, and with stocks hitting new highs, doesn't even vaguely resemble the past ones.Doug Short

    Where Did All The Bears Go? Cullen Roche, Pragmatic CapitalismMarch 22, 2013, 4:45 AMThat’s what Schaeffers Investment Research is asking after a huge run in the market in recent months. Despite persistent chatter that everyone is expecting a market decline (eventually), the data shows that there aren’t many bears at all. Here’s Ryan Detrick from Schaeffers: “It is expiration Friday and we are usually pretty busy, so here’s a quick chart that should give the bulls pause. With news highs being made just about everyday, one thing to be aware of is investors are getting excited. Is this reason to...

It's not just that the S&P is near all-time highs. It's not just that pro-investors are more in stocks than they've been in years. It's also that economic skeptics are starting o throw in the towel, and accept that the economy is back. Either that's a great sign, or it's a sign that things have gotten way to extreme on the positivity front....

Investors clearly have confidence issues this year and that's why you've seen these sharp moves to the upside and the downside. We...

    One elderly thrill-seeker was gored in a leg and five others slightly injured as thousands of adrenaline-fueled runners raced ahead of six fighting bulls in the streets of the northern Spanish city of Pamplona in the first running of the bulls of this year's San Fermin festival, officials said Saturday. Runners, in white clothing and red kerchiefs around their necks, tripped over each other or fell in the annual mad daredevil rush along early morning dew-moistened streets to the bull ring. One youth got the top of his shirt and kerchief caught on a bull's horn, inches from his face,...

    Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah(notes) shouted a homophobic slur at a heckling fan on Sunday night (the video can be seen here), mainly because he decided he was going to act like an unmitigated idiot in that particular situation. There's no way around that level of in-the-moment stupidity. He's since "apologized" (I guess?) for saying, in his words, "something," but does he not really understand that contrition better come a little stronger than that, these days? "I got caught up," Noah said. "I don't mean no disrespect to anybody."

    Commodities Are Sizzling, Risks Are Building by: Daniel Moser October 13, 2010 Practically all risk assets, and even many “risk-off” assets, have enjoyed extraordinary performance in the past month–maybe even too much. Jim Cramer, like him or not, coined the saying, “bulls make money; bears make money; pigs get slaughtered”. It would appear prudent to print out those words of wisdom and tape it to your computer screens for at least the next few weeks. A substantial portion of the gains in the last month seem most attributable to the prospects for additional quantitative easing. There has been some degree...
