    DOW -393 NAD -147 SP-47 The market is currently in panic mode. Investors across the globe are wading in a sea of deep red, sparked by concerns about slumping global growth — otherwise known as China. But Jeff Saut, chief investment strategist at Raymond James, appears to be suggesting that the selloff that has gripped markets over the past several days is equivalent to what he describes as a “selling stampede” that could last about a month before it’s exhausted.In other words, he (unlike George Soros) is holding off before calling this a crisis. “For whatever reason, our stock market,...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Republican on Sunday said he expected more witnesses to step forward with information about last year's deadly attack on a U.S. mission in Benghazi and how President Barack Obama's administration responded to the unfolding events. "I do think we're going to see more whistle blowers. I certainly know my committee has been contacted," Representative Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview on "Fox News Sunday". Last week, Republican charges that White House covered up details of the September 11, 2012 attack gathered more steam after former U.S. diplomat Greg Hicks...

    Whites, not so much. Via Politico: President Barack Obama tends to skim lightly over the details of his health care law in speeches. But his administration has a far more specific pitch to black and Hispanic audiences. The message: Blacks and Hispanics, among whom uninsured rates are significantly higher than among whites, stand to benefit disproportionately under the health law, gaining access to free preventive care and other services that will help reduce existing health care disparities. The sustained outreach from the White House aims to make voters eligible for new benefits aware of them and how to get them....

    At night I hear a train whistle where I live, only occasionally and actually rarely. Have heard it about 3 or 4 times in about 7 years. Thing is I live about 7 miles from a train track. Is it possible to hear a train whistle that far away? and it does sound kind of ghostly, echoey, resonates. I wondered if anyone else hear knows how far a train whistle can be heard. I live in Phoenix Az, by Camelback Mountain.

The need for a decisive, bold response on the part of the Oak Park Police Department leadership was clear, and the brass did not disappoint. The answer iswhistles!

Many in Saudi Arabia had called for Busacca to sport a different whistle to avoid offending Muslims. He has previously refereed several soccer matches in the Kingdom....
