The Story of Behavioral Finance

I was talking with a friend of mine who’s one of the best No Limit players in the world. He told me that in the two years, the crop of No Limit players would be scary, much better than those at the top of the game today. I agree. Perhaps these players are already out there, but don’t yet have the bankroll to play in the big games (an unfortunate requisite for being considered a top player). Or maybe they’ve not yet turned twenty-one. My friend’s view was that he should maximize his win while he’s at the top of the game, and then move out of the way a bit when the new crop takes over. This is smart ...
the institution traces its roots to 17th-century clergymen who sought to establish a college to train clergy and political leaders for the colony. In 1718, the College was renamed Yale College to honor a gift from Elihu Yale , a governor of the British East India Company . In 1861, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences became the first U.S. school to award the Ph.D. Yale College was transformed, beginning in the 1930s, through the establishment of residential colleges : 12 now exist and two more are planned. Almost all tenured professors teach undergraduate courses, more than 2,000 of which are offered annually. The ...

"Rambo took the barrios by storm: Spanish videotapes of the movie were widely available, and nearly all the boys and young men had seen it, usually on the VCRs of their family's more affluent friends. . . . As one young Sandinista commented, 'Rambo is like the Nicaraguan soldier. He's a superman. And if the United States invades, we'll cut the marines down like Rambo did.' And then he mimicked Rambo's famous war howl and mimed his arc of machine gun fire. We both laughed."from the book There is a Nicaragua that Americans have rarely seen or heard about, a nation ... market research, surveys and trends
Does Analyst Accuracy Correspond With Seasonality? | Markets ...
An academic paper says seasonal affective disorder increases pessimism during winter months, yet it offsets an overall tendency toward overenthusiasm. A study published in the Journal of Behavioral Finance called “Analysts Get SAD Too: The Effect of Seasonal Affective Disorder on Stock Analysts' Earnings Estimates,” by Steven Dolvin of Butler University, Mark Pyles of the College of Charleston, and Qun Wu of SUNY Oneonta, examines “the potential effect of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a documented psychological condition that produces heightened pessimism and risk aversion during the fall and winter ... market research, surveys and trends


Pfizer Broke the Law by Promoting Drugs for Unapproved Uses ...
the lawyers eventually hammered out, the Pfizer unit, Warner-Lambert, pleaded guilty to two felony counts of marketing a drug for unapproved uses. New York-based Pfizer agreed to pay $430 million in criminal fines and civil penalties, and the company’s lawyers assured Loucks and three other prosecutors that Pfizer and its units would stop promoting drugs for unauthorized purposes. What Loucks, who’s now acting U.S. attorney in Boston, didn’t know until years later was that Pfizer managers were breaking that pledge not to practice so-called off-label marketing even before the ink was dry on their plea. On the morning of Sept. 2, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Elizabeth Warren has all the right enemies
Kremlinologists into a frenzy. On Tuesday night, Elizabeth Warren, the progressive choice to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, had dinner with Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. And on Wednesday, right after attending the signing ceremony for the Dodd-Frank bill, Warren had lunch with Obama's trusted senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett. What can it mean? Who wins in a Jarrett vs Geithner throw down? Is Elena Kagan offering tips on how to pass confirmation hearings with flying colors? Or is Warren operating a last-ditch lobbying effort to win over hearts and minds? The chatter over Warren's prospects has grown ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The web means the end of forgetting
Four years ago, Stacy Snyder, then a 25-year-old teacher in training at Conestoga Valley High School in Lancaster, Pa., posted a photo on her MySpace page that showed her at a party wearing a pirate hat and drinking from a plastic cup, with the caption "Drunken Pirate." After discovering the page, her supervisor at the high school told her the photo was "unprofessional," and the dean of Millersville University School of Education, where Snyder was enrolled, said she was promoting drinking in virtual view of her under-age students. As a result, days before Snyder's scheduled graduation, the university ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Do the Jews believe the story of creation in Genesis is the ...
Most Jews do not read the Bible literally. There is no dogma in Judaism. Judaism is a religion of action and proper behavior, not belief. In Judaism, beliefs flow from behavior, while in Christianity, behavior flows from beliefs. The Jewish tradition doesn't ask us to believe in doing good, or even to feel good, before actually doing good. We're supposed to do it anyway. While Jews and Christians might agree on the essentials of a golden rule of love of God and neighbor, Judaism, unlike Christianity, is less a religion of correct doctrine and belief and more a religion of communal practices and behavior. ...
Does Ron White really have behavioral problems or is that just the ...
Behavioral Problems is the name of his tour and DVD; though he probably has them, too. White is a comedian and was a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which helped elevate him to star status following the original Blue Collar tour and DVD release. He developed a drug addiction while serving in the military, so he probably does have some behavioral problems of his own. His DVD, Behavioral Problems, has gotten fairly poor reviews.  by newuser41673462 on Apr 20 2009 (15 months ago)  by newuser33492305 on Apr 20 2009 (15 months ago) I've always run hot and ...
