    *Banks in stress-test for ‘global shock’…

    The six largest US banks had their trading positions compared to a “global market shock” as part of the latest round of government-mandated stress tests.

    The tests included a doubling of German sovereign debt spreads and a 56 per cent drop in the price of benchmark oil.

    On Monday, the Fed made public for the first time the assumptions the six banks had to use when stress-testing their portfolios.

    (The Good News? They seem to hold up well from the test)

    (The bad news? If they manipulated the results in anyway to look better.)

  • Letmethink

    From Daily Beast
    Zucker launched his makeover Tuesday by announcing the imminent arrival of ABC News anchor Chris Cuomo to take over the troubled 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. slot currently occupied by Soledad O’Brien.

    I may tune in again is OBrien is no longer a part of the 7-9 programming

  • Coffee Steve


    CNN is going to make an all out effort to restore some of the glory days for them. They have already made some major announcments with more to come. Kudo’s to CNN for making an effort.

    OK Class open your books to page 301 quantum physics.

    First Question on quiz

    What are indivisible units of energy called?

    (Answer) No cheating guess before you look at the answer in next post :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    They are called called “quanta”
    There are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory:

    1 Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units.
    2 The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves.
    3 The movement of these particles is inherently random.
    4 It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is.
    5 The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in.

    Thursday we study the Particle/Wave Duality :mrgren:

    BBL..school is now open

  • Mikey O

    @Coffee steve Nah they wouldn’t fix the numbers or cook the books on the banks stress test results. Not the same banks that got tax payer money and the execs still got big bonus approved by the feds. Just like the news media spin this morning on 4th GDP .1 % if was all because of defense cuts and that consumers were still spending great. Just wait until next quarter when consumers cut spending. Oh my who will they blame this time ????

  • Coffee Steve

    @Coffee steve Nah they wouldn’t fix the numbers or cook the books on the banks stress test results


    AIG not only cooked them they shredded everything that would have shown them not only cooking the books but just flat out false numbers

  • Coffee Steve

    Oh Oh…

    *GDP -0.1%…
    Santelli: ‘We Are Now Europe’…



  • Coffee Steve

    *Israel strikes at Syria-Lebanon border, sources say

    Alleged airstrike comes day after Lebanon reported three separate overflights by IAF jets; Israel increasingly concerned over fate of Syrian chemical weapons.


  • UpAndOver

    “And that’s why today I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay — and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control.” — President Obama, February 23, 2009

    Sorry, at this point I thought we could all use a good laugh.

  • usa8888

    Did all the right wingers read the latest news about Fox’s ratings collapse, worst ratings since 2001 (above)???

  • usa8888

    I am quite surprised that so many of the right wingers on here have been sucked in by rush slimebaugh…

  • usa8888

    Coffee–your “physics lessons” are from a 4th grade textbook? You should know that Physics is ALL MATH and you need to get into the advanced calculus if your lessons are to mean anything….

  • usa8888

    coffee–*GDP -0.1%…
    Santelli: ‘We Are Now Europe’…


    No surpise! The uncertainty caused by the right wing GOP in the House cause this. AND, we are NOT in Europe!!!!

  • cathy

    Good Morning Everyone.

    I don’t understand why you people feel the Republican party excludes anyone or has very strict standards.

    Republicans only have standards.

    What issues do you think the Republicans are too extreme on? And wait, I know it’s extreme to hold people accountable for their actions. It’s exclusion to tell people you have to work hard in school and at a job to make it in this country.

    Heck, there is what I see;

    The Democratic party says, you can’t make it without the Federal government. It’s not your fault you are not successful. It’s not your fault that you can’t read because you don’t want to go to school. Every problem you have is someone else fault. It’s your body do whatever you want with it. We will give you birth control and if that doesn’t work we’ll make sure that a***tion is legal. It’s not a life if you don’t want it. We owe you a good job, a nice house, nice car, nice clothes, vacations and to retire. The rich man wants to keep you down. We will make sure you have everything you need to live. You need us because bad people in American are using you. Women, gay, non-white and every special group need lots of laws to be treated equal.

    The Republican party says, you don’t need the Federal Government in your daily life. You can be successful without our help. We will help you get training and an education but you have to work at it. We already have enough laws that tells employers to treat everyone equally.

  • Coffee Steve


    I cannot tell you the shock waves that are hitting the market now, this is the first time in 3 years the economy actually shrunk. Markets are reacting now

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning Cathy, hope your 401K is sound, cause the rest of this week they are going to take a beating, this economic reports is a disaster

  • cathy


    If Nuclear weapons don’t kill people, countries kill people.
    Then you have to agree, that Gun’s don’t kill people.

    So, what do you mean by well-regulated when talking about guns?

    Coffee, I hope everyone is fine and mother nature don’t get anyone in your area.

  • usa8888

    People like Cathy, who represent the far right of the GOP, STILL don’t get it. The GOP chief strategist said last night if the GOP doesn’t change its social thinking, they will never win another election. The country is changing and the far right wing is back in the 1880’s…
