Confessions of an Amateur Investor

Gold was too expensive. I was unfamiliar with the other metals people invest in (platinum, palladium, etc.), so I decided silver was the next best thing. The silver market is volatile, but has performed well since 2004 (I invested before the recent dive in price). I found a couple of options for investing in silver: 1) Buy coins or jewelry. As someone who tends to misplace things, I don’t want to deal with a safe deposit box (which requires a key, which I may lose) or a stash at home. Finding a buyer for the coins, once I’m ready to sell, also sounded like a pain. 2) Buy shares of silver stock. This instinctively made me wary ...
Confessions of an Aca/Fan: Archives: Vidding Kung Fu Panda in China
From time to time, I use this space to showcase the global dimensions of the kinds of participatory culture which so often concern us here. When I first started to write about fan culture, for example, the circuit along which fan produced works traveled did not extend much beyond the borders of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and perhaps Australia. American fans knew little about fan culture in other parts of the world and indeed, there was often speculation about why fandom was such a distinctly American phenomenon. Now, fans online connect with others all over the world, often responding in real time to the same ... market research, surveys and trends
Global Voices in English » USA, Russia: Discussing 'Spies' 2.0
[EN], a 28-year-old “venture investor,” attracted most attention. The online discussion went into several directions: mocking both the “spies” and the US officials; analyzing the consequences for the US-Russian relations; discussing Chapman's online data and pictures; and the future of covert operations under conditions of total virtual “transparency” provided by the new media. Although the topic was popular, the sources of ongoing reporting on the story were scarce: only the Voice of America Russian Service provided live coverage with reports from the courtroom [EN] via their LJ ... market research, surveys and trends


Confessions of a Money Manager: Investment lessons learned at St ...
I must confess that I'm a golfaholic. While I can't play as well as I used to, I still enjoy the game and watching golf on TV. This week's event was the British Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews. On Thursday, Tiger Woods missed a few short putts but still managed a tidy 5-under par 67. Meanwhile, 21-year old wunderkind Rory McIlroy shot a remarkable 9-under par 63 to take the lead. But low and behold, Tiger never challenged from that point on and unknown - at least on the world golf stage - South African Louis Oosthuizen captured the event, winning easily by 7 shots over Englishman Lee Westwood. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

2000 Municipal Market Roundtable (Keynote Address)
  – I honestly thought that you were going to say the Chairman because I was going to give my remarks a title. Nobody loves munis more than I do unless it's nobody, but I think it is a contest. I really do believe it is a contest as to whose heart and soul is more deeply involved in this market, and I'm sure that it isn't just a contest between the Chairman and myself. But many of you in this room who are over the last 30-odd years have been in the trenches, and, if not you, perhaps some of your parents have who have been in this industry. I will say that I have given the better part of a life to ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

WikiAnswers - What did witches do in the 17th century
Not exactly. In the 17th century, the term "witch" was specifically applied to those who used magic to cause harm. Those who used magic in the way modern witches do were usually referred to as "wise-folk" or "cunning-folk". The term "witch" was rehabilitated in the mid 20th century, and now has a very different meaning to the 17th century usage. Many old women were accused of being a witch, and many died an innocent death. For an example, If a lady were caught being a witch, or if she were accused of being a witch, they would tie rope around her stomach and put them in the water. If they ...
