Aussies in transition from industrials with lower interest and what’s it called Loonie dollar is causing pick up with exports. Possibly to slow this year a bit.  Mortgage doing good and seeking to be stable instead of a bubble. Their dollar up tiny bit tonight.  NZ larger lvrs requiring more down payment for housing. Low interst rates  helped housing, expected to be stable and immigration increasing so they figure it will keep demand supply in balance. That’s what they expect anyways. It is all subjective on opinion.

Farmboy: Thank you for your kind words.

Coming from you, it means a lot. I remember, in the past, commenting  on your way with words.  At the time, it went through my mind what a good writer you were. It’s obvious that you haven’t lost your touch.

My villain – well, you’ll just have to wait and see if he lives up to your expectations. My heroine – I’ll want to know what you think about her.

I hope it isn’t too long now before the book is published. I’m thinking, within a month or so.


margaret @ 13:49 ?Congratulations Are In Order!

Posted by Farmboy @ 18:44 on January 20, 2016  

Title of Published Author now to be added to your already long list of accomplishments and skills. You are truly an exceptional and amazing woman. I hope your writing is met with the greatest of acceptance and applause my dear. Just remember us folks back here at the Oasis when fame and fortune comes a’knockin at your doorstep. I look forward to ordering your book as soon as you can release the details. Just goes to show you that you never know who you are rubbing elbows with while reading these pages.


Now about this ‘American villain’ you mention. I hope you realize the time frame you mentioned is just a tad before my time. However, I do hope you have captured the proper amount of romance and skull drudgery that would make any villain proud.  Certainly sounds of an intriquing storyline to say the least. Don’t guess I could talk you into giving the ending away? (grin)


Seriously though, wishing you success beyond even your dreams with your book. Perhaps, you have discovered a different road to that Golden Treasure we seek. Very proud of you, Best Farmboy

ISIS Cuts Fighters’ Pay By 50%, Cites “Exceptional Circumstances”

Tyler Durden’s pictureSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 01/20/2016 17:15 -0500

As anyone who holds a “non-supervisory” job in America’s double-adjusted “recovery” is acutely aware, wage growth is missing in action in the US.

Your boss may have gotten a raise, but you probably didn’t and if the number of multiple job holders is any indication, America’s rapid transformation from middle class utopia to feudal system is likely to continue unabated for the foreseeable future.

Of course it’s not just Americans who are forced to deal with economic realities like the soaring cost of housing on wages that never rise.

There’s the Japanese for instance, who have discovered that all of Abe’s “arrows” have failed to hit their mark.

And then there’s ISIS, whose cash flow has been constrained thanks to hundreds of airstrikes against its oil infrastructure carried out by a determined Vladimir Putin.

According to a translation of a document posted by Middle East Forum research fellow Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi, Islamic State just cut its fighters’ pay in half citing “exceptional circumstances.” The original document and full translation is below.

Natural News: Markets crashing across the globe… sell while you still can!

Posted by silverngold @ 17:27 on January 20, 2016  

Exactly as I have been warning about for months, global markets are now experiencing a systemic crash that’s only just beginning.

There’s a lot more downside yet to come… perhaps 30, 50 or even 70% losses on many stocks.

The only people still holding stocks are those who traditionally get slaughtered during market crashes. You’re being told by the financial media to “hold” while behind the scenes, all the people in the know are selling like mad.

Those who “hope and hold” are going to be financially decimated. The global market crash has begun… SELL while you still can!

Get the full story here.

See if you can find anything on security filings before news including any insider buying or selling. You know what they say lol but the rumor sell news. If there about to have news or earning or divis they tend to go up before then sell off near or after. Divis usually before. It depends what your targets and time frames and know for sure’s on fundamentals. Fundamentals only work in stong sectors though. During a sector crash generally even if fundamentals are good it will get taken down like what going on now here.General rule for majority with some exceptions,  Keep an eye on dollar and here vs yours and just watch your stops. What percent down in mind you’d sell.

Sad to say PM shares only rallying

Good advice.  We’re keeping a good watch on the situation. In the meantime, we’re waiting on a quarterly report to come out on a company. We might pop into that one.

Nasdaq up 22

Posted by newtogold @ 15:28 on January 20, 2016  

Reversal of about 180 points. Can the turn around the Dow and S & P to the green side? Amazing.


When the DOW was down 550 NUGT kept declining to almost unchanged–with gold up $18

Posted by Richard640 @ 15:26 on January 20, 2016  

,now that the DOW has recovered 200 pts & gold pulled back, the HUI & NUGT have caught a bid…but nothing great…gold is just about impossible to trade…”they” make it very rough for interested bulls…then there’s silver–been dead all day–hardly a condition to inspire confidence in opening a long trade…

Orrr.. A carrear politician like Merkel or pick you choice here lol . Merkel running off  saving her suitcase of Euros while the city burns.

Your book, that sounds interesting. Let us know when your selling it. Can we have it signed by you since we know you to pass on to kids or would that be difficult. No matter  let us know when it’s out.

Armstrong points out over and over that gold will rise when confidence in gov is bad but that’s not the all of it. Besides as things are now how much more confidence has to be lost.?!?!?!?

Financial appears to have more to do with it than human rights or their own people apparently. The market is all connected so each country can be affected by what another does. Emerging markets are most vulnerable especially if their products or exports are dependent on what the larger economies are doing.  If the pog is moving up with rates lowering looks like you can expect more cuts going forward so possible upside to pog but not all. Here it can work in reverse too so look back see if any correlation and the big driver confidence and where money is going there. I’m glad your not marring your stocks but don’t be too nervous either not to get left out standing the sidelines. If u do be patient don’t decide to get back in at the top. Doesn’t always have to be all or nothing as long as it averages to your being in the green. Dollar up here but economy not seeing much from it due to taxes regulations or gov greed. Even Russell small cap not seeing the difference since it has handful of US companies that should benefit. In Calif gas higher because gov greed seeing profit loss taxes on to every gal. So when other states see 1.69 we see 2.69 and will never stop till people wake up and start slamming fists on desks.  Behind closed doors taxing. Most don’t realize it. Anyways let us know when book is out.

PM shares are looking better

It’s given me quite a thrill that you’re interested. Although I have been writing for years, this is the first time I have thought to get a book published. It’s quite exciting.

Plastic to outweigh fish in oceans: report

Posted by silverngold @ 14:08 on January 20, 2016  
  • A new report says there will soon be more plastic in the world’s oceans than fish. (AAP)
A new report says soaring plastic use is filling our oceans with waste, to the point where plastics will soon outweigh fish in the seas.

20 Jan 2016 – 12:16 PM  UPDATED YESTERDAY 1:39 PM
 The world’s oceans will contain more plastics than fish by 2050 as plastic, mostly packaging, enters the seas at the rate of a garbage truck-load a minute, a new report has warned.

Massive volumes of plastic packaging are being thrown away after one use, the report by the World Economic Forum has found while only 14 per cent of plastic packaging is collected for recycling.

The report says eight million tonnes of plastic leak into the ocean every year – the equivalent of one garbage truckload of waste every minute.

“If no action is taken, this is expected to increase to two per minute by 2030 and four per minute by 2050. Estimates suggest that plastic packaging represents the major share of this leakage,” the report says.

Plastic in guts of 99 per cent of seabirds by 2050
Scientists have predicted 99 per cent of the world’s seabird species will be affected by eating plastic by 2050.


The report estimates that by 2025 there will be one tonne of plastics for every three tonnes of fish and by 2050 the oceans will contain more plastics than fish by weight.

Plastics have become an essential part of the global economy and production has surged from 15 million tonnes a year in 1964 to 311 million tonnes in 2014, with the report estimating that will double in the next 20 years.

The report, titled “The New Plastics Economy: Rethinking the future of plastics”, calls for a new approach to the production, use and life cycle of plastics.

The authors note that plastics deliver massive economic benefits through increased productivity, longer food shelf life, lighter products and less fuel consumption.

However, they have increasingly apparent drawbacks, including accounting for a growing proportion of global oil consumption as most plastics are sourced from virgin fossil fuel feedstocks.

Apart from the enormous environmental impact, plastic waste is a huge cost to the global economy, with the WEF finding 95 per cent of the value of plastic packaging is lost after one short use and materials worth $80 billion to $120 billion are lost to the economy each year.

“A staggering 32 per cent of plastic packaging escapes collection systems, generating significant economic costs by reducing the productivity of vital natural systems such as the ocean and clogging urban infrastructure,” the report says.

The report warns the costs of these after-use impacts plus greenhouse gas emissions add up to $40 billion a year – more than the profit pool of the packaging industry.

“In future, these costs will have to be covered,” it says.

Floridagold. Nice to hear from you.

I hope to have it published this month. I’ll let you know when it happens.  It should be in Amazon.

None of this Med East Crap

Posted by Ororeef @ 13:59 on January 20, 2016  

would have happened if Obama hadent made moves against Putin in Crimea and Ukraine ….and used NATO to put missiles in his back Yard  ..

Yes we should have let him know not to get expansionist minded but it wasent unreasonable for him to protect Russian speaking people in those areas ….

There would have been NO SYRIA,NO ARAB SPRING nonsence ,no support for Iran , No refugees streaming into Europe its all because of Obamas Stupidity !

If you use military threats on him ..you better have the wherewithal  to use it or dont make such threats  ..because he then will stick it back to you and make you look like a fool like Obama is….Stupid is as Stupid does….He should have been our ally in fighting Muslims ..after all they were his enemy and are still a threat to him….

NOW Obama made them  a threat to US…..NICE work Obama…

A complete screw up by Obama who pushed Putin into supporting IRAN as it was a strategic move and he knows how to play that Chess game  ..

Obama is such a complete fool who only knows domestic politics ..how to fool the majority by promising something for nothing and then make them pay for it….

He then started this oil price decline as a way to Punish PUTIN and now its backfired on us !   I wonder just which side hes on ?

Yes, it’s a great song.  My husband has heard it before, but not me.

Unfortunately, I won’t be around much because I’m starting on the sequel to a book that should be published very shortly. Writing leaves you little time for anything else.

Not sure if you want to hear this – but the villain in my novel is an American. You don’t have to worry that you know him, because the story takes place in Fiji in the 1860’s. You don’t have to be concerned, not unless, in some past life, you came across him on one of your travels in the Pacific.

I’ll make sure to make my next villain a New Zealander, or more appropriately, an Australian.

Yes, it’s about the rates.  You certainly have a good grip on how they work. I don’t. I just watch the charts going up and down.
