Accounting for Reality

Ten years ago, in November of 1989, a commando unit of the Salvadoran armed forces entered the campus of the Central American University (UCA) and killed two women colleagues and six Jesuit priests. The tenth anniversary of the UCA massacre offers us a rich opportunity to continue our reflection on what a university must be for the 21 st century, especially a Christian, Catholic and Jesuit university. The murdered university president, Ignacio Ellacuría, and those who shaped the UCA wanted a university at the service of their country. They argued that this meant the "liberation of the poor majorities". The ...

accounting for reality tv
Yup, it's begun again. Another umpteen months of watching a group of talentless people do precisely naff all, with the 'papers finding out their dirty little secrets and debating which is going to be the next ' Brian ' or ' Helen '. Yes, we're already on Day Whatever of another series of Big Brother . As you may’ve already gathered, I'm not much of a fan . But, before I launch into a(nother) tirade on the way reality TV has ruined our viewing schedules and stifled the creativity of genuinely talented people, I've had another of my 'thoughts'…what if there was a reality TV ... market research, surveys and trends
Buddhist in the Bible Belt: Salacious Details Not Forthcoming. Maybe.
Ha! And you thought you were gonna get the dirt on my premarital foolings-around! No such luck. I've already written the letter for one of the books I'm flogging around, formerly titled Annie Sipkins, Accountant to the Gods, recently retitled No Accounting For Reality so as to better fit on a book jacket. The only big question left is where to send it. I was gonna send it to Daw, only to discover much to my dismay and chagrin that it was too short. Like about 50,000 words too short. I gotta tell you, too-shortness is a new one on me; Mindbender is like 150,000 words (500-600 printed pages). No Accounting for Reality is ... market research, surveys and trends

• Dollar Holds Steady Despite Clear Threats to Financial Stability and the Euro
There are two prominent roles that the US dollar fills for most currency traders: the benchmark currency is both a favored safe haven and the primary alternative to the euro. For the savvy fundamental trader, these two functions are invariably linked; but it is important to realize that they can develop individually and therefore guide the greenback separately. With that in mind, we were watching today’s fundamental developments intently to measure the response from the broader speculative market and the currency market in particular. The ultimate take away from today’s headlines was that the threat of a second ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Economists React: How Big a Threat Is Deflation?
with base effects accounting for a large part of the decline, the last three months have seen an annualized fall of both 26% in energy prices and 0.6% decline in housing costs. We remain concerned that the continued weakness in the consumer sector will see prices trend lower through the second half. The persistent inability of the recovery to gather any momentum frustrates the consumer and keeps demand and ultimately inflation on the back foot. –David Semmens, Standard Chartered Bank – Core prices [excluding food and energy] rose a bit more than expected, increasing 0.2%, the first such gain since October 2009.

Basing a political affiliation on factual evidence | Ask MetaFilter
Grossly oversimplifying, the left says "we need to spread the wealth so that people in need will be okay," and the right says, "we need to help the rich, because if we do, the rich will help the economy which will help all of us, including the poor." Almost everyone I know, except for me, has a STRONG opinion about which one of these views is correct. When I ask them how they come by their views, it's usually a gut feeling or else they're just following the standards of their family or social group. And they tend to get pissed of at people who hold the other view or no view at all. I was raised in a left leaning ...
Google Answers: Accounting with Excel (looking for good templates).
I am starting a business and am looking for a very generic set of templates I can use for: creating accounts, journal entries, and generating the big four statements (income, balance, R.E., cash flow). Also, I'm hoping to do keep sets of books: one for reality and the other for tax purposes. Perhaps there is a template out there that can make that a bit easier? I have been running websites for years and will start accounting for that, but there are invention investments I will be making now, so the range of use for the templates will be large. If for some reason you think accounting should not be done in Excel, feel ...
