Nations Presse Info Greatest Stories Ever Told - "Tons Of Steel" By David Dodd Here’s the plan—each week, I will blog about a different song, focusing, usually, on the lyrics, but also on some other aspects of the song, including its overall impact—a truly subjective thing. Therefore, the best part, I would hope, would not be anything in particular that I might have to say, but rather, the conversation that may happen via the comments over the course of time—and since all the posts will stay up, you can feel free to weigh in any time on any of the songs! “Tons of Steel” I had the distinct pleasure of being present for Brent Mydland’s first show with the Dead, at Spartan Stadium in San Jose. Brent wrote the words and music for “Tons of Steel.” It was performed fairly regularly throughout 1985 through September 1987, making its last appearance on September 23 at The Spectrum in Philadelphia. So, it’s a song about a train. What do trains evoke in Dead lyrics? Brent’s train is something else. That one is up in the air for me.

Démentiel : les banksters sont désormais “Trop gros pour aller en prison” ! [C’est la façade du bankster UBS à Locarno, en Suisse. Le climat et l’environnement sont infiniment plus agréables qu’à Luxembourg, mais on y pratique aussi le recel de fraude fiscale à grande échelle] On en lit des trucs sur Internet ! Mais heureusement il y a des jours d’exception. Mes images sont mal choisies car la lumière peut aussi être bénéfique. Ce journaliste s’appelle Matt Taibbi. Un grand merci à Madame Laetsgo, qui écrit à ses heures sur le blog collectif “Ruminances”, qui lit et commente par ici, et qui est aussi l’un de mes plus efficaces hauts-parleurs dans ce capharnaüm qu’est Twitter. Des liens, ici, il y en a pléthore. Or là : paf ! Je le dis et le répète, la finance a pris une place démesurée sur cette planète, et comme un cancer qui commence à métastaser, il faut l’arrêter par tous les moyens. Vous ne me croyez pas ? Ces deux banques ont récemment été convaincues de malfaisance répétée et généralisée. Tous corrompus, tous aux ordres. Et voilà.

Tips for a Better Sex Life These five missions will push your sex life—and your relationship—to new heights. Whip out your red pen and start crossing them off your to-do list. 1.

Ignore their howls of protest. If bankers leave the country, it would be no loss | Simon Jenkins The peasants are revolting across Europe. They want bankers' blood and mean to get it. Until now, public response to the credit crunch has been one of general bafflement and wrist-slapping. The worm has turned. Meanwhile, a Swiss referendum now requires top executives to seek explicit shareholder approval for their pay, with a ban on golden hellos and goodbyes. Europe's once omnipotent banking lobby has been all but neutered by the scale of scandal. Only in Britain do ministers still dance to the bankers' tune. Last year the City of London's much-heralded "shareholder spring" got nowhere. The reality is that the banking community has allowed this thirst for revenge to build up for over four years, and it just did not care. This had nothing to do with free markets, except within a tight group of high-rolling traders. For four years the British government – Labour and the coalition – huffed and puffed but was too terrified of the banks to act.

Recipe: Grilled Asparagus and Avocado Tacos Unless you're a no-meat athlete, your grill likely cooks hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken breasts, or steaks almost every time you fire it up. Sure, you'll throw on some veggies as a side dish, but the meat tends to take center grate. It doesn't when you're making these tacos — and you won't even miss it. Ivy Stark, executive chef at Dos Caminos, touts this recipe as one that's healthy but still tasty, filling, and satisfying. Stark has been running for 25 years, and often run-commutes between three and four miles to whichever Dos Caminos location she's working at that day. You'll need to oil your grill and your avocadoes really well to ensure that they don't stick. Grilled Asparagus and Avocado TacosRecipes by Ivy Stark, executive chef at Dos Caminos How to make it:1.

Building Human Rights - United States Furthur : Free Music : Free Audio : Download & Streaming : Internet Archive Dark-pool trading reaches record levels in Europe By Anish Puaar European share trading taking place in anonymous, off-exchange venues known as "dark pools" reached its highest-ever level in July, amid lower volatility and a growing proliferation of high-frequency trading on the platforms. About 10.3% of all European equities trading last month took place on these venues, according to data from Thomson Reuters. By value, trades worth EUR75.1 billion were transacted on these venues in July, 12% higher than the value traded in dark pools in January and 28% higher than in July 2012. The Thomson Reuters data includes activity in "dark" multilateral trading facilities, that are operated by exchanges such as the London Stock Exchange Group and Bats Chi-X Europe and brokers, as well as those run by investment banks in the form of broker crossing networks. Dark pools do not display prices to the market, and allow investors to place orders anonymously to help minimise market impact.
