We Are Pi

postedPosted in Science, Stuff, Wonder Wonder on August 14th, 2012 by glennm

Just after 2:29 p.m. ET Tuesday, the American population reached 314,159,265, or pi (3.14159265) times 100 million, according to the Census Bureau’s population clock. “This is a once in many generations event … so go out and celebrate this American pi,” demographer Howard Hogan said in a statement from the Census Bureau.

Never Enough

postedPosted in Business, Money Matters, Social Media on October 8th, 2008 by glennm

See, whatever governments do, it is not enough to calm the stock market lemmings when they are panicking. Stocks Volatile After Rate Cuts [NYTimes.com]. The Fed discount rate is 2.5% and prime is about 3.5%, close to their historic lows, oil is down to $80 per barrel and the DJIA still falls by almost 200 points to less than 9,300. That’s nonsensical at best, insanity at worst and inexplicable on any rational basis. For a suggestion on how to cope, see my Twitter finance lesson of the day…from the ancient past (a mere eight days ago) — “What Does Down Shall (Soon?) Go Up.”

More Politics of Disinformation

postedPosted in Lawyers, Guns & Money, Politically Incorrect on August 13th, 2008 by glennm

So the Department of Justice has concluded that its hiring practices under President Bush broke civil service laws in favoring applicants with political connections and conservative political credentials. But they refuse to do anything about it. Justice Dept. Issues a Callback [washingtonpost.com].

“Where there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime, we vigorously prosecute,” the attorney general said. “But not every wrong, or even every violation of the law, is a crime.”

Wow, what a concept. If a government official breaks the law governing his or her core official functions, how can that NOT be a crime?

Rational Thinking On Telemarketing

postedPosted in Business, Cyberspace, Lawyers, Guns & Money, Rants on October 7th, 2003 by glennm

Starting in late September, the federal courts completely screwed up the law on privacy and telemarketing, deciding that the Federal Trade Commission’s “Do Not Call” registry was, first, unauthorized, and second, in violation of the First Amendment. Today the 10th Circuit stayed those decisions, holding that “there is a substantial likelihood that the FTC will be able to show … that the list directly advances the government’s substantial interest and is narrowly tailored.” [yahoonews.com]. Finally, a little sanity is brought to the law.

The Washington Post calls the situation “Do-Not-Call Recalled,” which is cute but a little misleading. What’s been recalled are the asinine decisions by decrepit old judges hand-picked by the Direct Marketing Association to assure stupid rulings favoring local calling center business over the privacy rights of consumers nationwide. DMA says the court of appeals “appears to allow” the FTC to proceed with its plans. So, these guys can’t read either!! What “appears” true is that the telemarketers still refuse to admit that consumers hate them and that their entire business depends on being so obnoxious and misleading that people are bullied into submission. The courts have closed them down, at last.

Can Spam Act

postedPosted in Cyberspace, Lawyers, Guns & Money, Politically Incorrect, Rants, Tech Bytes on June 20th, 2003 by glennm

The Senate Commerce Committee has passed a “tough” anti-spam bill, reports MSNBC. But this Cox-Wyden-Burns measure would only require accurate headers and opt-in — nearly all spam messages already say you “asked” to be on their list — but would also preempt all state remedies against spammers. Meaning there’s no way to go after these folks. It’s a little bit of nothing on spam and a lot of political spin. But that’s Washington.
