TechCrunch Disrupt: Michael Arrington Forgets AngelGate At Bin 38
2012-05-25 01:15:00
Is TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington losing his memory? Earlier today, this blogger noted the drop in buzz for TechCrunch Disrupt New York, and pointed as the reason, in part, the absence of Michael Arrington’s direct control over the proceedings, and particularly his genius for making up news stories that created attention, and just happened to (Read More...)

Facebook Must Fix The Faulty Friending Algorithm
2012-05-12 05:40:00
Facebook’s friend algorithm is poorly designed, and to a degree that this blogger finds consistently annoying.

Being one to LOVE our cereal followed by our cereal milk, we kind of knew it, but this report by the Enviornmental Working Group solidifies the fact that most children's cereal contains a lot of sugar! It's not until it's contextualized with hightlight such as: "One serving of Honey Smacks has more sugar than a Twinkie." and... "One cup of any of 44 children?s cereals ? including Honey Nut Cheerios, Apple Jacks, and Cap?n Crunch ? contains more sugar than 3 Chips Ahoy! cookies." That one begins to realize the ramification of what this all means especially with childhood obesity...

What China's Credit Crunch Means For YOU.
2009-04-14 06:33:00
The Financial Times just did a story, entitled, Fears rise on China groups’ payments on how private Chinese companies are being negatively impacted by the credit crunch (h/t to China Economics Blog). China's credit crunch is already having a large impact on American and European companies that do business with China and I see that impact only growing. The FT story makes the following key points: -- A rapid deterioration in the ability of Chinese companies to pay their suppliers "is significantly increasing the risk of doing business in China." -- Chinese companies are facing "a liquidity crunch" due to China’s plummeting exports. "Many of them were also unable to access bank loans to tide them over the tough times, especially if they were small to medium-sized private businesses." -- Though Chinese banks have "ample liquidity," they usually do not lend to small private companies. -- Many Chinese companies have turned to their suppliers for credit, "thus forcing the ...
The Credit Crunch
2009-03-29 17:17:00
A Korean church asked me to preach on this.Ex. 20:1 And God spoke all these words: 2 ?I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 ?You shall have no other gods before me. Ex. 20:1 And God spoke all these words: 2 ?I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 ?You shall have no other gods before me.God was Israel?s saviour who had brought them out of Egypt. Would they now trust in Him to keep them, to provide for them? He is the Lord. He is their covenant God. Will they trust him? Sadly they often trusted in idols, false gods who were no gods but because they were the gods of powerful nations around them, God?s people were often led astray. Only exile cured them.Every one of us is, even from his mother's womb, a master craftsman of idols. John CalvinMan's mind is like a store of idolatry and superstition; so much so that if a man believes his own mind it is certain that he will forsake God and fo...

Tuesdays with Dorie: Caramel Crunch Bars
2009-02-25 10:40:00
This week's recipe on page 112-113 from Baking: From my home to yours: Caramel Crunch Bars has been chosen by Whitney of What’s left on the table. I served these small, rich but scrumptious treats at work. They were nearly gone, when I went home at noon. I couldn't find Heath Toffee Bits here in Northern Germany, so I used cow candies. It's obvious why they are called cow candies, the official name is Sahne Muh Muhs, in English Cream Moo Moos. I cut them into little pieces. Thanks to Nancy, who helped me to find out that 3/4 cup of toffee bits weighs about 180 grams. I also thank all the other members of the Tuesdays with Dorie group for their help and advice. For the recipe visit Whitney of What’s left on the table.

Some thoughts on the "Credit Crunch"
2008-12-04 10:31:00
Recession and the credit CrunchI have been trying to spin out technology from a govt. incubator in the N.E. of England, this has been a long and convoluted track, one which is precariously coming to a major nexus. The track has seen the business model morph from a major project , with debt finance in the teens of millions and matched equity financing , to the bare bones of a model which was built on a deck of cards that are crumbling away quickly. I am sure many of my readers have been there before, where a solid plan on the exterior is actually a convoluted network of supporting items and actions, if you miss or loose a couple of them the whole becomes very unstable( or role is to makes sure we have spare aces up our sleeves). This is normal for a start up but adding on top off that the financial institutions issues with the credit collapse, it makes it nearly impossible to raise debt financing , and the terms from your VC in general is like day light robbery, but what is a guy to ...

Beat the college loan crunch
2008-07-08 14:34:00
(Money Magazine) -- For families with children heading off to college, this has been the year from hell. First, a record number of applicants made 2008 the most competitive year ever for college admissions. Then the credit crunch hit the college market in a big way, igniting fears of a drought in financing for all students this fall.Spurred by dwindling demand for packaged loans from investors and cuts on federal subsidies, more than 100 lenders in the government college loan program have pulled out of the market. Private lenders are leaving the college market too - 27 so far. Those who remain are making it tougher to qualify for loans, while jacking up rates and reducing discounts.The result: If you're counting on a loan to pay tuition bills this fall, you're probably anxiously holding your breath, waiting to see if you'll be able to borrow what you need at a rate you can afford.Is it harder to get a student loan? Tell us.Well, Mom and Dad, you can officially exhale now. You'll...

BEAT THE CREDIT CRUNCH - GROW YOUR OWN PRODUCE
2008-06-17 10:02:00
The rising cost of living is encouraging scores of people to start growing their own produce.Gardeners are shunning the supermarkets in order to grow their own.Recent figures from the Horticultural trades association show a 31% increase in the sales of vegetable seed to householders, and a corresponding 32% decline in the sale of flower seeds. We are also buying nearly twice as many seedlings and young edible plants like tomatoes and marrows, and are growing far more herbs than ever before.The Royal Horticultural Society and seed companies back this up, saying that vegetable seeds sales are now outstripping flower seeds for the first time since the second world war!Suttons, which sells nearly a third of all household vegetable seeds in the UK, said this week that there had been a massive increase in vegetable growing in Britain. "We are seeing a big move away from flower seeds to vegetables. There has been a dramatic rise in things like sales of onions and potatoes. Spuds in particu...
