U.S. regulators will allow the creation of a market for trading futures contracts based on the predicted box-office revenue of Hollywood movies. Major Hollywood studios had opposed such a market, calling it a form of "legalized gambling." But the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission said Friday that it was approving the Trend Exchange. The commission is still reviewing the kind of contracts that would be traded on the exchange, as well as a proposal to create a second market called Cantor Exchange. --Associated Press LOS ANGELES — You don't need the last name Murdoch, Spielberg or Warner to be a movie ...
SBT has most of its schedule dedicated to children and pre-teens, making it the favourite network for the young audience. In 1998, SBT was running the longest-in-length children's programming block ever, together with TV Cultura ; it was shown from Sessão Desenho , a cartoon block, at 7:00 am (right after the morning newscast), until 9:00 pm, when the children's telenovela Chiquititas normally ended. SBT promoted this situation on the screen, calling this whole period as SBT Kids, a total of 14 hours per day, and until nowadays neither SBT nor other networks have beaten this mark. While most TV stations in Brazil ...

Uwe Boll's Rampage Review | Cinema Suicide
… and wins. His entire career is defined by a series of movies based on video games and not even good video games. His exceptionally terrible movies are based on games that review only slightly better than his movies. Everybody hates this guy. He’s frequently compared to the legendary director Ed Wood and it actually makes sense if you look at the comparison beyond the obvious observation that they both made and make really bad movies. Ed Wood loved film and loved making film. So does Boll. It just so happens that the end-product of their toils is such garbage. Boll gets away with flop after flop because of how film ... market research, surveys and trends


The billionaire newsboy. - By Jack Shafer - Slate Magazine
hasn't given an interview in more than 30 years, so we can't ask him why he entered competitive newspaper markets in San Francisco and Washington with his free, home-delivered tabloid Examiner s . Nor can we ask if he intends to take the enterprise to any of the nearly 70 cities where he's filed trademark applications for the Examiner name. Conventional wisdom holds that the newspaper industry is a mature business, and that once a daily establishes its dominance in a market, only fools and ideologues ever go head-to-head with them—either by starting a paper or, as Anschutz has in San Francisco and Washington, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Hollywood Stock Exchange: Are We There Yet?
Like an archaeologist fleeing a rolling boulder, Hollywood found itself looking for any way out Monday when the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission approved the actual box-office futures contracts that will be traded on Media Derivatives’ MDEX exchange. With tentative plans to launch trading on Sony’s upcoming heist movie Takers, it looks like Hollywood’s worst nightmare—aside from getting an NC-17 on a family comedy—could well come true. Still, the M.P.A.A.’s got one last card up its sleeve: Sen. Blanche Lincoln inserted an explicit ban on box-office trading into the mammoth ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Week In Private Equity: Back When Groovin' Was Groovin'
The revelation of Henry Kravis’ salary was almost as hotly anticipated in financial journalist circles as learning where LeBron James was going to land was elsewhere. So much so that we think Kravis should have arranged a one-hour special on a financial TV channel to unveil his compensation details, offering Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.’s limited partners a chance to buy ads, with proceeds going, perhaps, to pay down portfolio company debt. But KKR took a quieter route, filing an updated S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission with the juicy details . Turns out he and cousin George Roberts each earned ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Congrads on saving. First piece of advice, sit on your money for a while. I was out with two investors earlier this month who knew nothing about buying companies, and they informed me 'we are ready to do a deal today.'

Learn about Finance, how to evaulate investments, how to get your money back, watch people who you want to trust or vice versa and most of all begin to understand 'what is a good deal, what is not, and how to ...
