Morgan Stanley ‘bullish’ on corn prices

US officials provided a “sanity check” in raising their estimate for domestic supplies by less than markets had expected, Morgan Stanley said, as investors forecast – for now – an end to corn price falls. Morgan Stanley pegged corn, with palladium, as its best bet among commodities, saying that investors were “continuing to underestimate the potential for a rebound in US demand”, as highlighted by US Department of Agriculture data on Friday. The USDA, in its much-watched Wasde crop report, raised its forecast for world corn stocks at the close of 2013-14 to 1.887bn bushels – an upgrade of 32m … Continue reading Morgan Stanley ‘bullish’ on corn prices

The Myth of the Good War: America in World War II

In the night of February 13-14, 1945, the ancient and beautiful capital of Saxony, Dresden, was attacked three times, twice by the RAF and once by the USAAF, the United States Army Air Force, in an operation involving well over 1,000 bombers. The consequences were catastrophic, as the historical city centre was incinerated and between 25,000 and 40,000 people lost their lives.[1] Dresden was not an important industrial or military centre and therefore not a target worthy of the considerable and unusual common American and British effort involved in the raid. The city was not attacked as retribution for earlier … Continue reading The Myth of the Good War: America in World War II

Paris restaurants usher ugly customers to back tables

Two upscale restaurants in Paris reserve their best tables for attractive customers and assign people who are considered ugly to corner tables where they will be less visible, a French daily has revealed. A fat billfold is no guarantee of a good table at upscale Paris restaurants, which arrange customers based on two very specific categories: the attractive and the ugly. Hostesses and waitresses at the chic restaurants Georges, on the rooftop of the Centre Pompidou, and Café Marly, overlooking the Louvre’s courtyard, have to observe strict seating arrangements based on looks, according to a French daily. Tables near the … Continue reading Paris restaurants usher ugly customers to back tables

So Just How Much More Israeli Imposed Poverty Can Americans Take?

The Banker Occupied Government in Washington has been imposing poverty on Americans by transferring wealth from the workers, farmers and small businessmen to the elite in New York and the City of London for more than 100 years. I have spoken many times of how the bankers steal our money. They create our money out of nothing and charge us interest for using their money. They also are allowed to steal billions of dollars every week from federal spending which we peasants are not allowed to audit. Donald Rumsfeld announced on 9-10-2001 that he could not trace 2.3 trillion dollars … Continue reading So Just How Much More Israeli Imposed Poverty Can Americans Take?

4 Creeping Ways Capitalism Is Killing Us

The profit motives of this system offer little incentive to feed the hungry, treat the sick, secure us in retirement or provide job opportunities. The process is gradual, insidious, lethal. It starts with financial stress in various forms, and then, according to growing evidence, leads to health problems and shorter lives. Financial stress is brought upon us by the profit motive of capitalism, which offers little incentive to feed hungry children, to treat the sick, to secure us in retirement, to provide job opportunities for middle-class Americans. Some of the steps in the process are becoming more and more familiar … Continue reading 4 Creeping Ways Capitalism Is Killing Us

Egypt: The First Nation Ever to Revolt Against Democracy?

In fact, the military’s claims that Egyptian protesters sought an end to the experiment in democracy are highly doubtful. When Egyptian military leaders decided to end Egypt’s first ever-ever democratic experience in a coup d’etat on July 2nd, toppling the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) government from powerand imprisoning President Mohammad Morsi, Egypt perhaps became the only country in the world that had a revolution against democracy. As a result, the new government embarked on persecuting and illegally imprisoning members of the Muslim brotherhood and others who defy the military takeover of power. Last Monday President Morsi was arraigned in court for … Continue reading Egypt: The First Nation Ever to Revolt Against Democracy?

How did graffiti become respectable?

FOR old school graffiti taggers, it may be the final proof that commercialism is destroying their proud culture. Justin Bieber, the Canadian singer, has been accused of spray-painting the wall of a hotel in Rio de Janeiro. But even before the baby-faced 19-year-old took to spraying things, graffiti were going mainstream. In Britain, tagging and train painting—two of the staples of graffiti culture—are in precipitous decline. Meanwhile, arts students are getting into drawing on walls and some businesses have even started selling graffiti painted on their premises. Why did graffiti suddenly become respectable? Graffiti have been common for millennia. The … Continue reading How did graffiti become respectable?
