I understood mil to mean million and not military, otherwise it doesn't make a lot of sense.
Also many people use 24hr time for convenience, especially if dealing with international references.

For what it's worth, I also thought he was simply referring to "a distraction" with the OJ comment.
Just as he meant Waco was the magician's other hand diverting the audience from the working of the trick.

good job avatar - so lincoln freed the "debt slaves". i was wondering what the african-americans had to do with it, obviously nothing at all (no wonder i was confused).

hey - look at cnn's front page news. all about OJ. the markets are mentioned on their sister site cnn money. so much for concern about the markets. but hey - the bailout passed so its all ok now!

well i can guarantee the one person who won't be watching it is 'god'.

he's too busy sitting back and admiring his fine creation to step in and help the world out in this obvious time of great need.

perhaps if the church gave away some of it's disgusting wealth to the people who actually need it and stop poncing around in gold threaded silks, living in palaces and lecturing people on their 'sins' then they may earn more respect.

how about they get on that direct line to god they think they have and get some help from him?

No sure if this is related but I'm gonna put it out there anyways:

I've been listening to Bloomberg radio for a little over a year now, every day on my way to work. A radio spot really caught my attention today, hadn't been for all this Reinhardt thing, probably I would have just ignored the commercial.

I've never heard a religious message on Bloomberg radio before, this was the first time.

The message was about this organization.

Like I said maybe is not related at all, I leave it for you guys to decide. But it was just odd to hear a religious message on Bloomberg radio.

From the website:

To be the internet source for people seeking the high calling of their work and daily life seeks to connect people with the faith that undergirds and sustains all that we do. That’s why it is the high calling of our daily work. Daily work embraces all aspects and activities of daily life—including home, community, leisure, as well as occupation.

Well, so far, the DOW is heading for a 'crash' in the true sense of the word. How the resilience of this market will fail sometime soon, it appears!


Interesting to see what it closes at.

P.s. anyone wake R up yet? Hope he's not having a sleep in.

according to babelzilla...

Exilarch - (Aramaic: ריש גלותא Reish Galuta lit. "Head of the Exile") (Greek: Æchmalotarcha) refers to the leader of the Jews of the Babylonian exile. After the fall of the first Temple, the Greeks used the term to refer to the leader of the people. The people were called golah [Jeremiah 28:6, 29:1; Ezekiel passim] or galut [Jeremiah 29:22].

Naim Dangoor info -

Mr Dangoor is an Iraqi Jew with a fascinating life story. His grandfather was the chief rabbi in Baghdad, when the city's population was 40% Jewish and owned 95% of the business. He came to Britain in the 1930s to study engineering at Queen Mary College in London and returned to Iraq to join the army and then set up his business empire. He spent the 1950s running the Coca-Cola franchise in Iraq with a beloved Muslim business partner.

Does gold, commodities surge signal war? Commentary: Gold bug sees impending attack on Iran

War Commodities

I'm no economist, but are these things connected??
BTW gold is up 5% How much would be a significant rise in the gold price to see something's up?
Here's an article from June 8, 2008

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Bears were blindsided by the past week's sudden spike in gold and commodities. But gold bugs have an explanation: the world smells war in the Middle East, specifically, an attack on Iran.

Londoner Claims Ancient
Jewish Title And A
Fortune in Iraq


Exilarchs Ruled Vast Domain From TIme of Babylon And (British-Jew) Naim Dangoor Wants It Back

The Wall Street Journal June 30, 2003 pp. A1, A6.

British-Jew real estate tycoon Naim Dangoor declared himself Exilarch of the Babylonian Jews in 1970, after the position was vacant for 700 years. His initial demand is $20 billion that he estimates the Iraqi-Jews lost after WWII. British-Jew Edwin Shuker, who is trying to form a Truth & Reconciliation Commission that would address the question of Iraqi reparations to Jews states that the claims of Dangoor are legitimate.

Last week at the United Nations, a new organization, Jews for Justice from Arab Countries, was established to seek reparations for Jewish refugees and for centuries of Muslim racism. Abraham Sofaer, himself an Iraqi-Jew, states the claims of Iraqi Jews are legitimate: He notes that much of the real estate of Baghdad and central Iraq is really Jewish owned. The Israeli Ministry of Justice has set up the World Organization for Jews of Arab Countries (WOJAC) to collect reparations claims against all Arab countries: So far 25000 forms have been filed. At the Congregation Kahal Joseph Synagogue in Los Angeles, a dozen families have filed claims; the claim of one family that fled Baghdad in 1967 is a 13 page listing of buildings, factories and plantations. The billionaire Zilkha family of Los Angeles and Houston are planning a lawsuit and claims ownership of much of the banking sector in the Middle East, including hundreds of banks in Baghdad, Cairo, Damascus and Beirut. Ezra Zilkha, president of Zilkha & Sons Inc., the family holding company, notes: "Whatever we can get now we'll take".

In Baghdad, Muslims are becoming aware of the game that is afoot: One local newspaper, Al-Saah, has noted that "returning Jews" are trying to seize Baghdad real estate. A sign on a factory bulletin board in Baghdad warns Muslims to "resist the temptation to sell anything to the Jews [lest] the money they make to be turned into bullets to be used against the Palestinians." Iraqis who endured Saddam's rule have contempt for the Jews and Kurds now clamouring for property after years of comfortable exile.


Iraq's Forgotten Exiles Seek Redress

By Joel Millman The Guardian - UK 7-9-3

A reports on the movement to restore Iraq's Jewry to its former glory...

For 1,500 years, from the era of Alexander the Great to the late 13th century, a high Mesopotamian priest in Babylon ruled as the supreme leader of Eastern Jewry. Known as the Exilarch, he settled all disputes brought before him by Jews living as far away as India and Spain. His authority ended only when Mongol hordes sacked Babylon, for centuries [home to] the world's largest Jewish community.

The year was 1270. Seven centuries later, a Jew named Naim Dangoor, once a Baghdad merchant but now operating one of London's largest property companies, re-established the office of Exilarch, naming himself to the position. The year was 1970.

"Exactly 700 years," smiles Mr Dangoor. "Interesting, no?"

Padding about in a Sabbath robe of silver and crimson brocade, the 89-year-old is ... relentlessly [pushing] toward his goal: to re-establish the glory that was Iraqi Jewry ...

He wants the $20bn [£12bn] he estimates Iraq's new leaders - whoever they may be - owe his people for the calamity that befell the world's oldest and wealthiest Jewish community when radical Arab nationalists began ruling Iraq after the second world war.

Today, descendants of Iraq's Jews are scattered around the globe ... [But] despite Mr Dangoor's efforts, few are packing their bags for Baghdad. And some worry that the spectre of an old man living in splendour here dunning war-ravaged Iraq for lost wealth will hardly improve Arab-Jewish relations.

"He definitely has the right to sit at the table," says Edwin Shuker, another Jewish exile in London who is working ... to establish a truth and reconciliation commission that might address reparations. "But really should he speak for all of us?"

There's a lot of money to go around. The US Treasury has frozen some $3bn [£1.8bn] in Saddam Hussein-era Iraqi assets, while US officials estimate another $10bn [£6bn] may be within reach in other countries and Iraq itself.

Last week at the UN, an organisation called Justice for Jews from Arab Countries launched a campaign to present the legal grounds for redressing grievances of more than three quarters of a million Jewish refugees from all Arab lands ...

Abraham Sofaer, former chief counsel of Ronald Reagan's State Department and himself the son of a Bagh dad-born Jew, says the claims of Iraqi Jews are legitimate ... but thinks bringing [them] to court won't be easy. None the less, thousands of Iraqi exiles have been filling out forms prepared by the World Organisation for Jews of Arab Countries, to be compiled for a possible class-action suit ...

In a land beset by rivalries between Kurds and Arabs and between Shias and Sunnis, Jewish claims may seem beside the point. Yet until the 1950s, Jewish and Iraqi histories were entwined. In 597 BC, after King Nebuchadnezzar conquered Israel, captive Jews were exiled to Babylon. Decades later, Cyrus of Persia permitted their return to Jerusalem but few did, so prosperous had Babylon's Jews become.

Mr Dangoor's grandfather was Iraq's chief rabbi; his father was reputedly the world's largest printer of books in Arabic.

During the second world war, Naim Dangoor turned Baghdad into a trading hub ... [but] suddenly, it all fell apart. With the birth of Israel in 1948, anti-Jewish riots swept the Arab world. In Iraq, regulations modelled on Nazi Germany's Nuremberg laws restricted the role of Jews in commerce. By 1952, most Iraqi Jews were in Israel ...

Naim Dangoor stayed in Baghdad until 1964. While visiting London that year, he got word he should return immediately or have his property confiscated as a "denationalised Jew". Fearing an even worse fate awaited him, he chose exile in England, where he prospered buying distressed real estate.

Today the only distressed real estate he is interested in is his old home, a stately, two-story building on Baghdad's famed Abu Nowas Street.

Recovering that lost property is likely to be tough ... One local newspaper, al-Saah, has speculated that "returning Jews" are behind the rise in Baghdad's real-estate prices since the fall of Saddam Hussein. Muslims, a sign on a factory bulletin board warns, should "resist the temptation to sell anything to the Jews [lest] the money they make be turned into bullets to be used against the Palestinians".

Baghdad residents hope the street will return to its glory days. But that may not include a role for its former denizens. One of Mr Dangoor's former neighbours refuses to give his name ... but doesn't hide his contempt for Kurdish and Jewish exiles who say now they wish to come back. Of Mr Dangoor he asks, "Did he expect anyone to remember him after all these years?"

Could this have been the reason Legatus was in town this week-end?

DNDN is the ticker. Take a gander at what it's done this morning. Nice bump during the turmoil for those in the know. Look at the volume, pretty huge considering the average volume.

Seattle based drug company Dendreon. Legatus in Seattle. Any connection?

Dendreon Announces Interim Data from Phase 3 PROVENGE IMPACT Trial

SEATTLE, October 6, 2008 - Dendreon Corporation (Nasdaq: DNDN) announced today that it has completed the planned interim analysis of the Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled IMPACT (IMmunotherapy for Prostate AdenoCarcinoma Treatment, also known as D9902B) clinical trial designed to assess the safety and efficacy of the investigational active cellular immunotherapy PROVENGE® (sipuleucel-T) in men with metastatic androgen-independent prostate cancer. While Dendreon remains blinded to the data, the independent data monitoring committee (IDMC) reported to Dendreon a 20 percent reduction in the risk of death in the PROVENGE arm relative to placebo (Hazard Ratio= 0.80; 95% Confidence Interval [0.610-1.051]) . The IDMC observed no safety concerns and recommended that the study continue to its final analysis.

"The treatment effect we have observed in this interim analysis is consistent with that observed in the integrated analysis of our previous Phase 3 trials in this patient population when analyzed at a similar 24-month follow-up time," said Mitchell H. Gold, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Dendreon. "Given the delayed treatment effect we have seen in previous studies, we are pleased to see evidence suggesting a prolongation of survival in the PROVENGE arm at the time of the interim analysis, as well as a favorable safety profile."

At the final analysis, which is anticipated in the middle of 2009, if the study demonstrates approximately a 22 percent reduction in the risk of death, based on 304 events, the company would expect the study to meet its primary endpoint of overall survival.

Another thing. I have read some posts from various people that they have been seeing an unusual amount of Egyptian symbology, either in print or on television lately.

I was taking a look at world market indeces, and lo and behold, the only index that is in the green is the CMA or ^CCSI ( the same ). It's the Egypt DJIA. Hmm is there something to this or is it just by chance they are the ONLY nation that is not affected?

well in the past, the privileged few had access to the information and always got away with it because the few that did suspect something could be easily gotten rid of.

nowadays we are more capable of collating snippets of information into a more coherent picture thanks to the internet and mass media.

still, it wouldn't surprise me to see a spate of 'suicides' and 'accidents' of some prominent people and their associates in the near future.
