Egypt plans to dig new Suez Canal costing $4 billion

Posted by ipso facto @ 20:36 on August 5, 2014  

By Oliver Holmes and Stephen Kalin

CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt said on Tuesday it plans to build a new Suez Canal alongside the existing 145-year-old historic waterway in a multi-billion dollar project to expand trade along the fastest shipping route between Europe and Asia.

The project, to be run by the army, is a major step by new President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to stimulate Egypt’s struggling economy and recalled some of the grand national programmes of one of Sisi’s predecessors, army strongman Gamal Abdel Nasser.

Begrudgingly, NY judge obeys higher court and approves $285M Citigroup settlement with SEC

3 minutes ago

By LARRY NEUMEISTER

(AP:NEW YORK) NEW YORK (AP) — A Manhattan judge begrudgingly approved a long-delayed $285 million settlement between Citigroup Inc. and government regulators Tuesday over toxic mortgage securities, but not without a parting shot at the appeals court that forced his hand.

“They who must be obeyed have spoken,” U.S. District Judge Jed S. Rakoff wrote as he said the deal met the requirements the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals set in a June decision that found Rakoff had overstepped his authority.

Rakoff rejected the deal in November 2011, saying the settlement was “neither fair, nor reasonable, nor adequate, nor in the public interest.”

The settlement was reached after Citigroup was accused of making $160 million by betting against a complex mortgage investment in 2007 while investors lost millions.

In part, Rakoff had ridiculed the size of the settlement and the fact that it did not require Citigroup to admit wrongdoing. Citigroup routinely reports billions of dollars in profits.

Since Rakoff protested, the SEC has changed its position and sometimes companies have been required to admit wrongdoing.

In June 2013, SEC Chairman Mary Jo White said the SEC would begin demanding admissions of wrongdoing in cases involving serious fraud or harm to investors.

Three months later, JPMorgan Chase & Co., the nation’s largest bank, admitted wrongdoing when it was announced it would pay $920 million for lacking oversight in a $6 billion trading loss that shocked the financial world in 2012.

In its ruling, a three-judge 2nd Circuit panel said there was no basis in law for a judge to require admission of liability before approving a settlement.

The appeals court also instructed Rakoff not to infringe on the SEC’s discretionary authority to choose its terms of settlement.

In approving the deal, Rakoff said he could not say the agreement between the parties was procedurally improper or failed to meet the “very modest standard imposed by the Court of Appeals.”

However, he said he feared that the 2nd Circuit’s decision would mean there will be “no meaningful oversight whatsoever” of similar settlements.

“But it would be a dereliction of duty for this court to seek to evade the dictates of the Court of Appeals,” Rakoff wrote. “That court has now fixed the menu, leaving this court with nothing but sour grapes.”

Messages for comment left with lawyers in the case were not immediately returned.

They can have all my stinking passwords, they aren’t worth much anymore anyway. Now, if they could just get Gates, Buffet and Soros’ passwords maybe they could steal something worth a damn or even Obama’s I heard he has $1 billion waiting for him in a Swiss bank somewhere as payment for destroying the US.

Russian Gang Amasses Over a Billion Internet Passwords

A Russian crime ring has amassed the largest known collection of stolen Internet credentials, including 1.2 billion username and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses, security researchers say.

The records, discovered by Hold Security, a firm in Milwaukee, include confidential material gathered from 420,000 websites, ranging from household names to small Internet sites. Hold Security has a history of uncovering significant hacks, including the theft last year of tens of millions of records from Adobe Systems.

Hold Security would not name the victims, citing nondisclosure agreements and a reluctance to name companies whose sites remained vulnerable. At the request of The New York Times, a security expert not affiliated with Hold Security analyzed the database of stolen credentials and confirmed it was authentic. Another computer crime expert who had reviewed the data, but was not allowed to discuss it publicly, said some big companies were aware that their records were among the stolen information.

my personal opinion is that all the big money is run by machines these days and have been for quite a few years.  AND a lot of the machines are front running the other machines – so that puts us way down the line!

p.s.  Good point you made about the baileys! 🙂

As the gld deteriorated end of day the gold miner bearish etf fell right along side. Makes no sense.

Funny how the SM isn’t even down 1% and the financial pundits are in a tizzy. Imagine what it would be like if they held a pm stock.

 

Tells you that even they know it is all a crock and the SM is a disaster waiting to happen.

 

Gotta love the closes…you just had to buy the SM and sell the PM’s for yr portfolio as the World is such a great place.

Glad you’re still awake. Your argument about the oil price makes the most sense. Oil should be up big and yet it’s not. IMO, either the info we’re getting from around the world is B.S. and meant to deceive OR this is financial warfare 101. Probably both.

Funny how the SM isn’t even down 1% and the financial pundits are in a tizzy. Imagine what it would be like if they held a pm stock. Geesh.

Hi there not sleeping yet…..Tks for the comment….Was watching Oil closely recently and noticed the hits coming at the same time….but as Richard 640 has said,they have a much harder time keeping Oil down.

But to see it down here with what is going on in the ME is crazy, it’s like a perfect strom of bad news out there and getting worse by the day….Still as you say all about painting pictures.but reality ain’t far away.

Yeah, but silver is not recovering. The pm shares while looking better are still barely up.

Even when you’re winning they make you feel like you’re still losing.

I know you’re probably sleeping but I may need to commend you on your call that the US paper criminals are hitting oil to try and hit Russian oil production and sales.

The question is, when Russia completely drops the USD as a means of exchange for oil what then happens?

Listening to CNBS, these crooks are saying everything they can to protect their precious SM. Lie, cheat, steal is the name of the game.

Looks like gold bottomed about 1:30 pm-it’s only up $3 but what is HUGE is that

Posted by Richard640 @ 15:06 on August 5, 2014  

it is up at all when stocks are in trouble–Russia is the ALIBI for both stocks and gold…but Russia is just the match that lites the tinder

Yep, HUI is green.

“5:37am- Gold and silver are addressing their respective YellenGaps from the July FOMC meeting, evident on GLD and SLV charts. Canada returns to the gold and silverfields today. Welcome back, lonely without you. The Zeal gold bull seasonals average from 2001-2014 forecasts a launch right off August after a dome consolidation in July. I’m thinking the dome consolidation off the YellenGap this year is in its final carving out and the FULL MOON this weekend is the catalyst for THE LAUNCH next week.”
