  • The Circle Is Complete - Robots To Write The Earnings "Reports" Read By Robots

    Zero Hedge ^ | 07/01/14 | Tyler Durden
    Has Skynet become self-aware? It seems the 'robots' that run the US equity markets (HFT/algo trading dominates what little volume there is left) have decided to cut out the middle man in the market as Associated Press reports this morning that it will employ the story-writing software by start-up Automated Insights to automate the production of U.S. corporate earnings stories. To be frank, given the copy/paste nature of most mainstream media 'analysis' of earnings, we thought this had already occurred but AP notes, "We are going to use our brains and time in more enterprising ways during earnings season."

  • Source: U.S. to allow ATF agent to write 'Fast and Furious' book, not profit from it

    Washington (CNN) -- A federal agent will be allowed to write a book with an insider's account of Operation Fast and Furious, reversing an earlier government attempt to block publication for "morale" reasons. However, John Dodson, an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, won't be allowed to make money on the book. A U.S. law enforcement official familiar with the matter says the Justice Department, ATF and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will review Dodson's manuscript and, after making redactions to protect sensitive law enforcement information, will clear it for publication. However, federal employee guidelines prohibit...

The sixty days for Congressional approval have ended. The implications here are monumental and disastrous for our democratic republic. Our president, who is showing clear signs of becoming a traitor, has used his own simple judgement to turn the might of our military against another country, Obama’s enemy du jour. He does not...

    I want help in writing a series of conversations of about 7 sentences, imagining two disgruntled Obama supporters. This is to appeal to independents, not the conservative base. The ending, where the waiter speaks, is always the same. Although we could improve anything, of course. One simply video without faces can be used with different voice-overs. The visual "punch" is the denying of the refill. There is no money here... does anyone want to volunteer? Criticism is welcome, positive advice & new scripts would be fantastic!

In the coming months we will work towards the goal of writing and introducing actionable legislation. If you're ready to rise above the fray and appeal to the sensibilities of an emerging post-partisan America, we invite you to join and be a part of this process. The American Writ of Grievances...

    I believe we need to do the following: we need to write to all the governmental official listed in the attachments, including pres Bush, that due to the fact that Mr. Obama refused to provide proof of eligibility (Hawaii allows to issue birth certificates to children of Hawaiian residents, that are born abroad, and issue them based on a statement of one realtive only) , he cannot be certified as President and he cannot receive National Security CIA briefings. We believe all the Secretaries of State should give Mr. Obama 24 hours to sign the consent for relies of any...

    I just answered the FR poll question about what one would do in the event of a McCain vs. Hillary choice in November. When I did I saw that more than 10% who have answered said they would write someone else. I don't think this can be done in a Presidential election. When one votes in the Presidential election he/she is not voting for the named candidate but rather a slate of electors pledged to that candidate. In the past I recall these names being listed on the ballot but more recently (or maybe where I live now in NJ)...

    The Senate is now considering legislation that would impose controls on the unprecedented flood of illegal immigrants pouring into the United States. I urge readers to write to their senators and ask them to put a stop to illegal immigration. There are now 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. They are avoiding taxes, getting free health care (in emergency rooms), getting free education, being protected by law enforcement, and availing themselves of other social services -- and letting the American taxpayer foot the bill. Illegals are "driving municipal budgets deep into the red."The world has 6 billion people. The...

The Berber script - Tifinagh - is related to Egyptian hieroglyphics Morocco has been dominated by Arabic culture since the seventh century when the Arabs swept across the Middle East and North Africa in the name of Islam.

    WASHINGTON - As Sen. Tom Harkin (news, bio, voting record) drafted letters to the Bush administration on behalf of an Iowa tribe, he had no shortage of ideas for wording: A tribal lobbyist who donated to the Democrat's campaign suggested language for him to use. Harkin wrote at least three letters in 2003 pressing the government to release federal money to help the Sac & Fox tribe in his state cope with the temporary closing of its casino due to a tribal dispute, according to Interior Department documents obtained by The Associated Press and records provided by Harkin's office.

    Don't use no double negatives. Don't never use no triple negatives. No sentence fragments Corollary: Complete sentences: important. Stamp out and eliminate redundancy. Avoid cliches like the plague. All generalizations are bad. Corollary: All statements must be specific. Never listen to advice. Take care that your verb and subject is in agreement. A preposition is a bad thing to end a sentence with. Anarchy should be the law. Corollary: I will establish democracy by dictatorial decree. Everyone should be a non-conformist. People who insult others are jerks. Always be sincere, even if you don't mean it. Death to intolerance. Down...

    Tribes fail to halt study of ancient skeleton 01/09/03RICHARD L. HILL Four Northwest tribes lost another round in federal court Wednesday in their effort to halt a scientific study of the ancient skeleton called Kennewick Man. U.S. Magistrate John Jelderks in Portland rejected the tribes' request to delay the study until the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals can hear the legal dispute. In August, Jelderks ruled that eight anthropologists who sued the federal government could proceed to study the 9,300-year-old remains. The Nez Perce, Umatilla, Colville and Yakama tribes appealed his decision and later asked Jelderks to delay...
