The Half Past Human process for predicting the future from dynamic linguistics extracted from the internet began in 1997. Well, we have actually been gnawing on most of the concepts employed since about 1983. In 1994, we developed what we call the 'language model' for storage of data in large quanities for fast recovery when using SQL data bases. This extention of set theory as applied to data storage led to the examination of language in a new way. With the advent of the internet, the ability to test some of the 'language model' theories led to a series of programs being developed. This software is primarily written in prolog and implemented using LPA (Logic Programming Associates) version of this language as it offered pure prolog for the PC, as well as superior 'word concept' recognition and regex handling.

The price of gold is dropping sharply because of a pledge by the IMF to dump 403.3 tons of gold bullion onto the market, but that sale requires U.S. Congressional approval to go through. Is this all just a scam to get people to dump their gold, further driving the price down, then 'they' come in and buy it all up on the cheap, thus pushing the price to $2000/oz. and beyond.
Does anyone think the Congress would ever allow this sale to go through?

The IMF agreed to conduct a limited sale of IMF gold, the proceeds of which would be placed in an endowment that would generate annual interest earnings and cover the bulk of the remaining gap. The IMF would minimize risk of market disruption by (1) pursuing off-market sales to central banks; (2) conducting sales over several years; and (3) coordinating with the European central banks in accordance with the Central Bank Gold Agreement to fit IMF gold sales into existing expectations for official gold sales....
Likewise, U.S. assent to the sale of IMF gold to finance an endowment requires authorization by Congress....
Pursuant to the quota reform and IMF income negotiations, the Administration has submitted legislation to the U.S. Congress to gain the required legislative authorizations.
