SEC should cease regulatory fraud, quit issuing SABs — The ...
From the War on Terror to the War on Wall Street, due process violations by government agencies are proliferating like nuclear weapons. Facilitated by widespread ignorance among Americans — general public, financial professions, and the federal judiciary — the pattern of abuse threatens not only American markets but the very foundations of American life. In April 2009, the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission took another bite out of due process by issuing without public notice or input a “Staff Accounting Bulletin” or “SAB” for the first time since December of 2007. I stumbled on ... market research, surveys and trends
Business Law Prof Blog: SEC Commissioner Atkins Speaks Out on SAB 99
among other things, the "age-old" question: What does it mean to be material?  Of particular interest were his comments on Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 99, which gives the SEC staff's view that the use of percentages as a numerical threshold for determining materiality is not acceptable: The SEC allowed the waters to be muddied on the issue of materiality in 1999 with Staff Accounting Bulletin 99.

In San Joaquin County, CA, Another Battle Over LSSI
The combination of a budget squeeze and some dismay over past library leadership has led San Joaquin County, CA, to explore outsourcing management of the Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library (SSJCPL) to Library Systems & Services, LLC (LSSI), a process that leads to tightening benefits for staff and perhaps cutting positions (as LJ described in a 2004 feature ). While an ad hoc committee evaluates LSSI's bid--the sole response to an RFP--two local citizens groups have begun raising alarms about library privatization, warning that there has been no public input so far on the process. That evaluation on the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
ICKLER: Ready To Run At Quirky Gateway
There is no track on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule quite like Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Ill. Built in 1996 by Chris Pook, former President and CEO of CART and the founder of the highly successful Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (Calif.), Gateway is a 1.25-mile egg-shaped oval. Turns one and two have a tight radius and are banked at 11 degrees, while turns three and four are longer and more sweeping, but have slightly less banking at nine degrees. What that means for drivers and crew chiefs in Friday night's 200 is that compromise is the key. Because each end of the track is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Summary: This staff accounting bulletin summarizes certain of the staff's views in applying generally accepted accounting principles to revenue recognition in financial statements. The staff is providing this guidance due, in part, to the large number of revenue recognition issues that registrants encounter. For example, a March 1999 report entitled Fraudulent Financial Reporting: 1987-1997 An Analysis of U. S. Public Companies, sponsored by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) of the Treadway Commission, indicated that over half of financial reporting frauds in the study involved overstating revenue.

I sold and built a large peice of equipment for a customer. They don't have room to store it and have asked me to keep it for them.
