Ok, before you scroll this article and subconsciously (or outwardly!), say "What the ____?," allow me to explain... I started a sort of project (for fun) last fall, in ascertaining what is important to people on the Internet and they submitted their own versions of mini-blog posts. Now, you can read them, yourself, by clicking [...]
There are many different methods of stock market manipulation that exist, including personally devastating methods like Madoff's ponzi scheme and other schemes like "cherry picking." No matter what the level of fraud, it remains fraud and is damaging to those affected, as well as the greater community, which is impacted by the effects of stock marketing manipulation. Listen, as Mr. Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, helps lead us through the confusion that masks this stock market manipulation from the naked eye.
The first time that I heard about BlogEngage.com was while visiting Karen Woodham's Blazing Minds blog. I kept seeing these advertisements for Blog Engage on her site and the phrase, "Blog Engage," alone, caught my attention. I like to engage, and to engage with other bloggers? I was curious.
Soon after, Karen had a contest and the prize was a Blog Engage account. Ok, I was game. I mean, all I had to do was a few tweets and shares per day, right? Silly me was new to raffles and didn't realize it was a drawing. So, after I had ensured that I was ahead, by all the points I garnered, sure that I would win, I was sad to find out I didn't win the Blog Engage membership.
I would daily visit BlogEngage.com and try to figure out what it was all about. It wasn't clear to me at the time, as I felt like I was peering through the windows, like a child looking at a candy store.
Recently, I received a question via a comment on one of my service pages and thought it was a brilliant idea to have a page devoted to Q&A. So, if you have a question about Twitter (or social media), feel free to post here!
Talking Technology Behind The Investment Industry... Information for the Individual Investor
Listen, as Deborah answers questions about little-known and little-discussed issues that may affect the safety and the validity of the reporting of YOUR investments.

- Why would/should we care about the technology behind our investments?
- How does this affect me, since I don't use a Private firm for my investments?
- I don't invest anything, should I really care about this topic?
- How do I know if I'm at risk?

Soon after we ordered, another couple came in and sat near us. They were quietly perusing their menu when the waitress came over and abruptly asked them what they wanted to order. The gentleman politely requested some more time to decide. She insisted on drinks. Again, he said that they needed more time and in an effort to appease her, asked for some waters. She interrupted him, again, to insist that he give his meal order. He again, calmly, requested more time. She walked away. So did they, slipping out of the restaurant and away, probably for good.
After my hubby and I had been there about fifteen minutes, and I had enjoyed my soup and uncharacteristically eaten my bread before my meal, the waitress came over and looked at my untouched plate and said, "You take a reeeeallly long time to eat." Now, had she laughed, or made it sound like a joke, that would have been one thing, but instead, she accompanied the comment with a long, condescending, condemning glare. I felt instantly humiliated and embarrassed.
