(CREUSE-NEWS.EU) -- For many years conventional wisdom has said that the whole world is controlled by the monied elite, or more recently by the huge multi-national.

One thing is certain, if there was to be a shooting war, liberals will not die for what they believe in. Taken alone, the Regal GS reads on paper like an Audi. Both offered satisfying performance, and your preference will determine what works best. As I've also mentioned, I love my trips to India One of my previous gigs before I discovered the red pill was in a multinational media firm predominated by women.
Study shows powerful corporations really do control the world's finances
These amplifiers employ the recently developed KT output tubes. In addition to utilizing the KT output tubes, the ART and ART feature new input and inverter stages using s for voltage gain, main power supply reservoirs boasting a more than ten-fold increase in total capacitance compared to our earlier ART mono-blocks and ARTSA amplifiers, and a new regulator circuit for the input stage power supply.
The output tubes are showcased behind a clear window spanning the full width of the protective tube cage, while the input tubes are enshrouded in a clear protective block. As with earlier anniversary products, production will be limited to units of the ART and pairs of the ART Channel Islands PEQ 1 mk.
The soundstage is massive, and the dynamics convincing, with a great deal of fine detail. The musical presentation here is hardly budget.
After a long listening session, accompanying audiophile pals are all left stunned. Handpicking some very special op amps and meticulous attention to board layout is what gets the job done here. Quality touches are everywhere, from the carefully machined chassis quite a few steps up from what CI has done on past products to the Cardas input and output jacks.
As he did this, he pulled his knob rhythmically, slowly driving himself to the edge of sexual desire and wanton lust. He came, shooting cum all over himself. He then spoke, "Jake, I want you to do something for me. He began withdrawing his cock, it hurt Benny as his expanded knob came loose, but he learned to like the pain. The first and most obvious victims of the government's lies are the 40,000 or so Americans who this year will become HIV-positive, overwhelmingly gay men or poor, inner-city drug users and their sexual partners.
If Kahn's model is correct, redirecting the 540 million now wasted on spreading the myth of heterosexual AIDS to high-risk groups - mostly gays and inner-city drug users - could wipe out new infections entirely. The two stood embraced, in a pool of warm fresh blood.
Friday, November 17, The Blob As many of you know, I've been off the grid in rural India for the last few weeks. As I've also mentioned, I love my trips to India I get a chance to regroup, reset, meet wonderful people and think about things I rarely take the time to think about. It's all about perspective. Anyway, while I was traveling, I had a chance to peruse the Alibaba September Quarter figures, Press Release , 6K , Investor Presentation and of course, took some time to listen to the always entertaining Investor Call.
The Alibaba business model has triumphed once again. Why in the world would anyone invest in all of that expensive GPS, scanning, package tracking automation and logistics hardware when you can just dump your packages on the sidewalk and let homeless people figure out how to get them where they are supposed to go? Many Cinephiles consider this flick to be the late, great, Steve McQueen's quintessential work. That's right, I am of course referring to that trans-generational, classic, " The Blob " From the trailer: I won't bother to dissect the numbers any more than I have in the past, but suffice it to say that the same accounting shenanigans I've discussed herein, every quarter since the IPO in September of are still alive and well.
See my last 20F analysis for a little more detail: Gigantic, unbelievable "asset-lite" growth, huge fake efficiencies and synergies abound. Asset write-ups and inflated carrying values of "Questionable Assets" scattered across the books of more than six hundred un-auditable, consolidated entities are omnipresent. A Billion dollars of loans to insiders See: It's all about delivering nebulously defined "value". The call was, of course, capped off with the usual, odd, irrelevant, softball questions posed by the religiously devoted cadre of analysts.
Note that the analysts all refer to the business as "our segments" or "our strategy" or "how are we going to expand Call transcript posted below courtesy of Seeking Alpha. I'm not necessarily picking on Eddie Leung here, he seems like a really nice guy, but he happened to ask the first question. Thank you for taking my questions. I have two questions. One is on Cainiao. Could you share your thought on the long-term positioning of Cainiao?
Again, as the professional logistic service providers in China and globally, how to differentiate and perhaps cooperate in logistics? And then secondly, on New Retail, have we seen any change in the way that we cooperate with some of our brands and merchants across our multiple channels after we developed our offline channel recently? When you dump the packages on the sidewalk, what percentage of the merchandise is stolen? Second, this is the first full quarter you've consolidated InTime as your "new retail" The correct response to this question should have been: I'd like to answer your questions.
You'll get a bigger, better calculator on a device with a bigger screen iPad or larger. Here's the take-away from the calculator: Slot machines suck your money away faster than any other casino game. Unless you're comfortable with the kinds of losses shown, then either switch to video poker or table games see my crash course in table games , or if you must play slots, then at least bet less per spin.
The faster you play, the faster you lose. So slow it down. For table games, look for full tables, which will automatically slow things down. Bet high and die. The more you bet, the more you'll lose. Cut your losses by betting fewer lines or credits. My wife and I play just a penny at a time. We can afford to lose a lot more, but we have just as much fun with the pennies. Don't get cut on the edge.
The house edge is the casino's average profit per bet, and it varies from game to game. The higher the edge, the more you lose. You can't know the edge of the slot you're playing because the casinos don't disclose it, but we've got a good idea of slots in general because of the reports the casinos file and because of independent research. In some games, like video poker and blackjack, the house edge goes up if you don't play proper strategy.
The longer you play, the more you'll lose. So take a break from gambling and have some other kinds of fun on your vacation. How to calculate average loss You don't have to calculate average loss, because my calculator above does all the heavy lifting for you.
It's not the amount you actually expect to lose. The house edge in roulette is 5. I'm on a mission to replace the poorly-named "Expected Loss" with the more meaningful "Average Loss".
