Efforts to Prevent Gun Sales to Mentally Ill May Deter Patients From Seeking Help


Vol. 298 No. 5, August 1, 2007
Medical News & Perspectives
Thomas B. Cole, MD, MPH


JAMA. 2007;298:503-504.

New legislation designed to prevent homicides such as the mass killings at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg last April may have the unintended effect of discouraging individuals from seeking mental health services, experts say.

The bill (HR 2640), which passed the US House of Representatives in June and has been under review in the Senate, would provide incentives for states to submit complete, automated records of involuntary commitments to mental institutions and other data relevant to gun purchases to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), for the purpose of disqualifying certain individuals with severe mental illness from purchasing firearms.

In addition, the legislation would mandate treatment for persons with reportable mental illness, but it would also require removal of an individual's record in the NICS after a determination that the individual no longer posed a danger to self or others.

Forex? What is it, anyway?


The market


The currency trading (FOREX) market is the biggest and the fastest growing market on earth. Its daily turnover is more than 2.5 trillion dollars, which is 100 times greater than the NASDAQ daily turnover. (click here to read full market background by Easy-Forex™).


Markets are places to trade goods. The same goes with FOREX. The Forex goods (or merchandise) are the currencies of various countries. You buy Euro, paying with US dollars, or you sell Japanese Yens for Canadian dollars. That's all.


How does one profit in Forex?

Very simple and obvious: buy cheap and sell for more! The profit is generated from the fluctuations (changes) in the currency exchange market.


The nice thing about the FOREX market, is that regular daily fluctuations, say - around 1%, are multiplied by 100! (in general, Easy-Forex™ offers trading ratios from 1:50 to 1:200). If, for example, the exchange rate of "your" pair of currencies increased by 0.6% in the last 4 hours, your profit will be 60% on your investment! Such can happen in one business day, or in a few hours, even minutes.


Moreover, you cannot lose more than your "margin"! You may profit unlimited amounts, but you never lose more than what you initially risked and invested.


You can implement your choice (the pair of currencies, the volume amount) under any direction to which the market is moving, and yet make profit. It does not matter whether the exchange rate is going up or down: you can always decide to buy Euro and sell dollar, or vice versa - buy dollar and sell Euro. You don't have to physically possess certain currencies in order to perform "buy" or "sell" with them.



How do I start?


Register (Easy-Forex™ offers the simplest and quickest registration process, no obligation); deposit your first trading "margin" amount (credit cards are welcome, only by Easy-Forex™); start trading.


It can't be simpler or easier than that. Need help? We'll provide you with 1-on-1 training and service, as much as necessary (Easy-Forex™ offers real people service, live, in your own language).


How do I trade Forex?


You select the pair of currencies with which you wish to make a Forex deal. You determine the volume (the amount of the deal). You deposit the "margin" (collateral needed to facilitate the deal. Usually - only a very small portion of the whole deal, say: 1% or 1:100).


Before you finally activate the deal, you can still "freeze" it for a few seconds. That enables you to either change the terms, or accept it as is, or altogether regret the whole idea. The "freeze" feature is a unique service by Easy-Forex™.


When your Forex deal is running (you hold an "open position"), you can monitor its status and check scenarios online, whenever you wish. You may change some terms in the deal, or close it (and cash the profit, if any, or minimize the loss, if any). Moreover, Easy-Forex™ lets you determine a "take-profit" rate, with which the deal will close automatically for you, when and if such rate occurs in the market. Meaning: you do not have to stay near your computer when you hold open positions.



Want to know more? Want to get on-line training? Register here (simple, quick, no obligation), we'll be glad to guide you, every step of the way.



Good luck!



Forex trading involves substantial risk of loss, and may not be suitable for everyone.

Profit From Sector ETF Trend Divergence


By Deron Wagner
September 8, 2005


Are there benefits to determining which sector ETFs are showing the most divergent trends? You bet!

When the major indexes are steadily trending in one direction or the other, the broad-based ETFs are an ideal trading vehicle. To profit in a smoothly trending market, one only needs to identify which of the broad-based ETFs are trending the best and then initiate positions in the direction of that trend.

However, non-trending, choppy days are far more common than trending days over the course of an average week. While choppy markets may be ideal for day traders who thrive on volatility, they present a challenge for ETF "trend traders" who do not look outside of the most popular "big three" ETFs mentioned above. Swing traders who attempted to profit from positions in SPY or QQQQ from mid-May through the end of June can attest to the challenges of range-bound markets.

Profit From Sideways Action
Fortunately, there is a solution that enables ETF traders to profit even when the broad market is not cooperating. In this article, I will share the basic concepts of a technique that our company uses to trade ETFs in all market conditions, but specifically in sideways, range-bound markets. Though the "big three" ETFs are likely to stop you out due to whippy action in a range-bound market, there are always a handful of industry sector ETFs that show divergent trends from the broad market. These sector indexes often will generate double-digit percentage gains even while the S&P and Nasdaq are mostly unchanged. If you can identify those sectors that are showing the greatest degree of divergence, you can subsequently enter positions in the ETFs that most closely correspond with the particular sector. To do so, though, you first must be aware of the various types of ETFs and the families to which they belong. . . .

New Orleans

Subject: RE: New Orleans Haunts - Restaurants, etc.


This place was recommended to us by a local and we loved it:

Rita's Olde French Quarter Restaurant
945 Chartres Street * New Orleans, LA 70116 504-525-7543
Authentic Creole recipes served in a casual and friendly environment.

This is a favorite breakfast spot each time we went there:

Quarter Scene Restaurant
900 Dumaine Street * New Orleans, LA 70116 504-522-6533
Casual local spot with a varied menu of New Orleans and American favorites.

I did not like Lafitte's the last time I was there. It had TVs and was dirty and had crummy beer.


On Frenchman Street, I liked Adolfo's, also recommended by a local. Upstairs from the funky Apple Barrel Bar.

The worrying wonder drug: "But more importantly, these doctors fear that regular statin takers are putting themselves at risk from numerous side effects, some potentially fatal. 'If you give statins to anyone they will suffer minor muscle damage,' says Dr Kendrick.
'But it is the elderly and frail who are affected significantly. In my own patients, I have found muscle damage to be a common side effect, which manifests as muscle pains and weakness.'
The problem is more serious if the patient develops rhabdomyolysis (muscle wastage that can lead to kidney failure). According to Dr Kendrick, drawing on figures from the US Food and Drug Administration, there have been a total of 416 deaths between 1997 and 2004 directly attributable to simvastatin (Zocor) alone.

Other side effects of statins include amnesia, cognitive problems, irritability and impotence. The World Health Organisation is examining reports that taking the drugs can lead to amyotrophic lateral dystrophy, a devastating neurological condition which rapidly progresses to death."

Both Incisive CEO Tim Weller and ALM CEO William Pollak characterized the sale as an opportunity to expand ALM's business internationally and on the Internet. The deal, which is expected to close at the end of the third quarter, will leave ALM's management intact. Incisive, which has annual revenue of $280 million, is a rapidly growing business-to-business publisher with operations in New York, London and Hong Kong.

INDIA


Indian labor market tightens

India's skilled-labor market is tightening putting human resources issues at the centre of the corporate agenda according to a report in the Financial Times.

Over the last financial year, recruitment at the two largest Indian IT companies by market value, Infosys Technologies and Tata Consultancy Services has reached staggering levels. Infosys, based in Bangalore, hired no fewer than 31,000 new employees, taking its total workforce to 72,000.

The company boasts a market value of $27.5bn. This year, its revenue growth is expected to reach 28-30 per cent and it plans to recruit 24,500 people next.

Yet a shortage of graduates and rising staff turnover are becoming a problem. Graduate numbers do not provide an accurate picture of the levels of employable skills in India. According to the Financial Times, the available engineering talent, for example, is relatively low.
Indian engineering schools produce about 400,000 graduates a year. Of these, the best 125,000 will be snapped up by the five big IT companies – Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, Satyam and Cognizant. Smaller software players will recruit a further 100,000. This leaves a dwindling number available to all other sectors of the economy.

The challenge of sourcing such a quantity of people amid worsening shortages of skilled labor has led Infosys to move its finance director, Mohandas Pai, to oversee HR.

Whilst in many mature Fortune 500 companies this might be considered a step down, it is seen as essential in a market that has tightened faster than expected.

The shortage of engineers is seen as the result of an education system that produces graduates of a standard below that required by the offshore information technology and outsourcing industries.

A study by Indian lobby group the National Association of Software and Service Companies, states that around 25 per cent of engineering graduates and 10-15 per cent of general college graduates are up to standard. It warns that the Indian IT sector faces a shortfall of 500,000 professionals by 2010.

Lost? A Personal Locator Beacon Could Save Your Life
- New York Times


Are U.S. Cellphone Carriers Calcified?

Last week, I spoke at a cellular-industry conference in Lake Como, Italy. (Yes, I know, life's rough. And no, I did not spot George Clooney.)Continue reading.

My topic was the increasing number of cool services that tie together the phone and the Internet. I've reviewed a number of these service in The Times recently: GrandCentral, which makes all your phones ring at once so people don't have to hunt you down (and was just bought by Google); Teleflip, which turns your e-mail into text messages on your phone; SimulScribe, which turns voicemail messages into text that arrives on your phone or in e-mail; and so on.

The talk went well, but in the end, I wound up learning as much from the attendees as they did from me.

The cellular industry is going through insanely rapid change. Almost everyone there - 800 attendees from 200 phone companies in 65 countries - was running scared of VOIP. That's voice over I.P., better known as Internet phone. VOIP includes cheapo unlimited home-phone service like Vonage, as well as absolutely free computer-to-computer calling with programs like Skype. It's all growing like crazy, which is making a huge dent in these companies' ARPU.

Oh, yeah - that's Average Revenue Per User. Telecom companies live and breathe ARPU. The talks at this conference were all about "Improving Your ARPU." (They *love* acronyms in this business. Typical seminar description: "Learn how ISM and FSM can decrease your OPEX and CAPEX and boost your ARPU!")

Most of these carriers intend to fight off VOIP by growing into a Double Play, Triple Play, or even Quad Play.

What, you don't know those terms either!?

If you're a single-play company, you just provide landline service. Add cellphone coverage, and you're a double play. Add Internet service and TV, and you're a quad play. You can see the same syndrome here in the U.S., too, as cellphone companies try to deliver TV service, cable companies roll out phone service, and so on.

On the exhibit floor, companies were demonstrating very, very cool next-generation services for the onrushing era of unified communications. FastWeb, a company that started only in 2000 and is now a $365 million quad-play company in Italy, lets its customers watch any TV show that's aired in the past three days, on any channel, whenever they like. It's like retroactive TiVo.

Other demos included upcoming services that let you text messages to and from characters inside Second Life, the virtual-reality game; a software module that brings your phone's incoming text messages onto your computer screen, so you don't miss them and can reply with your keyboard; and various systems that unify your communications (voice, text messages and chat, for example), giving you a single address book and mailbox for all of them.

You know how young people are spending $10 billion a year on ringtones, just because it lets them express themselves? The next big thing, I'm convinced, will be avatars. This feature, too, was on display: You design your own little character, or avatar, choosing a hairstyle, clothes, facial features and so on.

Then, whenever you call people, your character appears on their cellphone screens. I'll bet avatars will be the next huge teen fad in 2010 or so.

But don't look for any of these goodies here in the United States.

I get the distinct impression that American cellphone carriers are calcified, conservative and way behind their European and Asian counterparts. (For one thing, I wasn't aware of any cellphone companies from the United States at this conference.)

One guy at the conference told me that his company, which sells software modules to cell carriers, had developed visual voicemail - a highly touted feature of Apple's iPhone, in which your voicemail appears on the phone like e-mail messages - *three years ago.* It had no takers among American carriers. ("This week, our phones are ringing off the hook," he told me sardonically. "We're digging the CD's out of storage.")

I also remember hearing friends on the Palm Treo team tell me what a nightmare it was to sell their early phones to the American carriers, who traditionally wield veto power and design control over every feature of the phone. The Treo team had all kinds of great ideas for improving the design and software of cellphones - but those carriers turned up their noses with a "we know what's best" attitude.

As you can imagine, the iPhone was a primary conversation topic at this conference. Lots of grudging admiration and amazement at what Apple pulled off.

Not just technologically, either. The biggest impact of the iPhone may be the way Steve Jobs managed to change the phone maker/cell carrier relationship for the first time in years. "We'll give you an exclusive," Apple told AT&T, "and you'll let us do whatever we like. We're going to handle the billing. We're going to take the signup process out of your stores and let people do it at home. You're going to redesign your network so that it works with our visual voicemail system." And so on.

Stan Sigman, president and chief executive for wireless at AT&T, is on record as saying that he had no idea what Apple's phone would be like when he agreed to this-a deal that would have been unthinkable in the pre-Jobs era.

If the iPhone becomes a hit, then, it could wind up loosening the carriers' stranglehold on innovation. Maybe phone makers' imaginations will at last be unleashed, and a thousand iPhone-like breakthroughs might bloom.

The cellular executives at the conference didn't seem to oppose this development; indeed, several were thrilled by the shift, as though they'd been feeling just a little uneasy about the whole "we're-the-gatekeeper" thing themselves. That's really exciting stuff.

Note to the cell carriers: Go with this new flow. You'll only improve your ARPU.

(P.S. ... As longtime Pogue's Posts readers know, my biggest cellular pet peeve is the endless recording you hear when you reach someone's voicemail: "To page this person, press 2 now. You may leave a message at the tone. When you finish recording, you may hang up. Or press 5 for more options" - and so on.

At the conference, I asked one cellular executive if that message is deliberately recorded slowly and with as many words as possible, to eat up your airtime and make more ARPU for the cell carrier. I was half kidding - but he wasn't fooling around in his reply: "Yes."

The secret's out.)

Do Stocks Show a Bullish Bias at Month's End?

Month End


Do Stocks Show a Bullish Bias at Month's End?: "We show that over the past 11 3/4 years, stocks have been much stronger near months-end than they have been any other time of the month. And, stocks which have dropped a day or two near the end of the month have out-performed even more. The fund managers like to buy near months-end, and it looks like they especially like to buy stocks as cheap as possible near months-end."

How to use the 2-Period RSI


TradingMarkets | How to use the 2-Period RSI
As mentioned above, the default/most common setting for RSI is 14-periods. You can change this default setting in most charting packages very easily but if you are unsure how to do this please contact your software vendor.

2-Period RSI

We looked at over seven million trades from 1/1/95 to 6/30/06*. The table below shows the average percentage gain/loss for all stocks during our test period over a 1-day, 2-day, and 1-week (5-days) period. These numbers represent the benchmark which we use for comparisons.

We then quantified overbought and oversold conditions as measured by the 2-period RSI reading being above 90 (overbought) and below 10 (oversold). In other words we looked at all stocks with a 2-period RSI reading above 90, 95, 98 and 99, which we consider overbought; and all stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 10, 5, 2 and 1, which we consider oversold. We then compared these results to the benchmarks, here's what we found:

Oversold

* The average returns of stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 10 outperformed the benchmark
1-day (+0.06%), 2-days (+0.21%), and 1-week later (+0.50%).
* The average returns of stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 5 significantly outperformed the benchmark
1-day (+0.12%), 2-days (+0.33%), and 1-week later (+0.65%).
* The average returns of stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 2 significantly outperformed the benchmark
1-day (+0.22%), 2-days (+0.51%), and 1-week later (+0.87%).
* The average returns of stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 1 significantly outperformed the benchmark
1-day (+0.27), 2-days (+0.62%), and 1-week later (+1.05%).

When looking at these results, it is important to understand that the performance improved dramatically each step of the way. The average returns of stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 2 were much greater than those stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 5, etc.

This means traders should look to build strategies around stocks with a 2-period RSI reading below 10.

Dick Morris


"More than thirty members of Congress have hired their wives to work on their campaign payrolls...But another growing trend is that members' wives, husbands, sons, daughters, sons-in-law, daughter-in-laws are actually becoming lobbyists! That way, they get paid to lobby their spouses or parents!

It's a neat gig. Even if your family consists entirely of dullards, they’re a cinch to get a job if all you have to do is lobby dear old Dad. With so many goodies on the line, - through government contracts, special interest legislation and regulations and budgetary earmarks - everyone can play the game. Usually the legislator piously declares that his family/lobbyist cannot lobby him. One even barred her from his office. But nobody is fooled. Everyone knows what is going on."
