Expanding Statistical analysis of the world’s details a good idea.

The ability to better analysis details and long term effects objectively would be helpful to the future development of the world. The world has come so far in developing the success, and progress on a number of measurable levels.  Statisitics is the study of numbers and out comes of events. Statistics of so many areas need to be continually measured and even expanded in areas like government, science, law, security, education, and quality of life.  With accurate and reliable statistics one can make better judgement.    All of the world is near access to food, shelter, caring, and some prosper.  We should cherish what we have, and look to better understand statistics of mathematics to continue in that direction.   In an effort to fight fraud, preserve integrity, and do our best.

Apple Corporation looks very attractive under $100 a share

Apple has long been a leader in innovative technology.  AAPL stock has traded much higher prices in the past, and probably will retest those highs around $200 at some point in the future.  Great investments are made at times of weakness into corporations that should be part of the solution.   Apple has great capacity to improve people’s lives around the world in a sustainable way.  I-phones are a revolutionary cell phone that is a great resource to owners.  Offering all the features of a phone, music player, and small personal assistant.  Including access to the Internet.  The idea that schools would cut payments to buy computers over payments to retired teachers , and law enforcement is pathetic in Topstockblog’s opinion.  Particularly to retirees’ with new jobs, and large savings.  Wake up America!  Make sure all children have access to technology.   Profit measures are inappropriate over relied on when valuing corporations like AAPL who have the ability to build a much better world.

Eharmony versus Match.com online dating sites; Where do look for your mate?

Where do you look for you mate?  Eharmony.com  focuses on a more complete profile of people.    Eharmony can be worked at to create a good relationship; even offers counseling for married couples.  Eharmony does the job on helping people learn more about themselves, and meet through the process of elimination.   My experience with Eharmony.com has not been great; so far, patience is a virtue.  Eharmony.com helps with self awareness and improving dating skills.   

Match.com  has a long history of being a user friendly dating site with many attractive members or at least freindly.  Match.com offers to help you find someone within six months or the service is free!  Topstockblog experience with Match.com has been positive.  Yahoo dating looks friendly.   It’s just lunch sounds like a nice option.

Quickest way to healthy economy is communication. Reducing housing payments and helping others

With careful communication the world could provide, maintain, and ensure housing for everyone while increasing the overall functioning of a healthy economy.   In large part this can and should be done with reduced taxation, reduced cost of housing, increased understanding of community, and the idiocy of paying for the same assets over and over.   Interest payments dictate many homeowners would pay as much or more than three times the cost of the house over a course of a loan.   That does not make common sense.  It has lead to a healthy economy for many years with a few less fortunate not benefitting in America.   With a more broad look around the  world the lack of banking opportunities, funcitiongovernment, trade relationship have left underdeveloped and impoverished people.  Education, and leadership can solve these complex problems.  For instance recognizing even as we have taken North Korea off the international state sponsors of terrorist list we must take further action to remedy the great poverty of the nation and ultimately helping our selves.   We should buy debt and employ the neighbor of South Korea to send products to the north.  The south is a major investor in the United States debt market and has great capacity to generate products that would greatly help North Korea.   American government can be a great force of stabilization while protecting Americans.

Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) looks like a good stock for the next 12 months,

JNJ corporation a family staple good.  Supplying a wide range of pharmeacutical products.  has an unprecedented number of supporters over at the Motley Fool an investment community; JNJ 5 star rated.  This could of course be a contradictory indicator; but, I think JNJ will trading near 70 is a safe bet with more buyers than sellers driving the stock higher in the next 12 months in my opinion.   In a recession sales of JNJ will be little effected and given it’s scale of economy it should be able to continue to increase efficiencies lowering costs supporting by the high quality products JNJ is know for.   JNJ pays out  a 2.5% dividend.

Paulson might just be a fraud of Wall Street, More concern for the long term potential rahter than profit margins.

Secretary Paulson (Updated 10/08/2008) has advised the buying of bad debt from rich bond holders.  To avoid worse consequences in the future for the economy. This is a direct violation of capitalist principles of allowing debts that are noncollectable to be declared worthless. George Bush purchased $25 Billion dollars in bad car loans. He is neglecting his duty to represent all Americans equally. America should have said no to this bailout in Topstockblog’s opinion.  America is already been burned once by Paulson buying bad debt.   Paulson the former head of Goldman Sach’sthe merger king of the world a certainly collapsible industry as it serves to concentrate, and isolate capital by the process of mergers.  Paulson’s actions do little or nothing for average, and poor Americans in Topstockblog opinion.  America deserves a shared ownership with corporations creating an opportunity to greatly lower taxes.  The rich who own bonds; not, average hard working Americans.  Many of the rich to benefit from the current buy out of bad debt are foreigners. The children of America should not receive more bad debt.   I apologize, and sympathize with unfortunate holders of bad debt in retirement funds. More unrecognized bad debt added to the national debt is a bad idea.

United States Senate refuses to discuss taking away tax breaks to Oil Corps.

A little sun light on why the U.S senate refuse to discuss taking away Oil corporations tax breaks ?  In a year with more record profits while Americans suffer.   The senate also failed to discuss tax cuts that are going to expire for renewable energy programs.  Tax hikes on Oil Corporations, and Pro tax cuts on renewable energy that will help our country and the world deal with both economic and environmental concerns.  Many democrats in the Senate say they are pro tax hikes on oil, and pro tax cuts on renewable energy programs.

    A loss of access to energy and environmental damage are dangers that need to be addressed through good judgement followed by sound action.  So talking about this problem and bringing sunlight to the United States Senators opposed to talking about Oil tax breaks of 17 billion dollars over the next ten years, and cutting renewable tax breaks is a mistake.  Inappropriate influence of Oil Cartels, Large Military powers (yes us), lies, and bad decisions made by people in power must have sunlight be brought to them.  A little sun light will help prevent these problems in the future.  All these events have the potential to destroy lives.  It’s just a matter of how risk is tolerated, and how well it is found to be controllable.

  Thanks for reading,  A special thanks and recomendation to United States senator Sam Wexler.   Mr. Wexler is doing a great job and sharing hope for justice with all around the world.  He continues to do so much to make are nation work appropriately.

Congress Representative Kirsten Gillibrand and the Public Forum Institute hosted economic summit on energy, and technology opportunities in New York

The 2008 economic summit was a great experience, and well attended at the Gideon Putnam Hotel.  The conference brought together influential people interested in economics of the region.   I learned about some interesting opportunities.   New windows that save great deals of energy in each installed house, and the strength of the windows was a highlight that stands out in my mind.  Classes on  gaining access to capital, and how to employ existing capital in the New York region.   Wind Farms can be created, and are being created.  

 

(8/21/2008) Congress Representative Kirsten Gilibrand of the 20th District of Upstate New York is proving to be a strong member.  The government website linked above documents and provides links to much of the hard work she has put into action since she took office.   Kirsten Gillibrand, and The Public Forum Institute is hosting an economic forum in September to discuss ideas to build a bright future for the region.  Topstockblog is very happy about receiving an invitation to the event and will let readers know more after attending the event.

Cuban tries to fix Olympic Referees’ with kick to the face!

Good Job my friend from Cuba. Referees’ are not what the Olympics are about. An upset Martial Arts competitor was disqualified for taking to long to recover from illegal blow. Then kicked the referee in response to show the referee’s aggressive tactics.   Olympic officials’ have become a scar of disgrace on the 2008 Olympics.  Several boxing bouts were judged completely inaccurately.   The boxers were robbed of their glory as the matches became a bitching session for disgruntled announcers and coaches.

China’s promised to crack down on human rights activists among others is truly a shame.  A shame that will not be tolerated.   Concerned citizen’s will raise awareness and protect human rights.

Barrack Obama chooses Joe Biden as his running mate to be vice president

Senator Joeseph R. Biden Jr.  is chairman of the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee.   Joe Biden checks out to be a good choice after reviewing some important voting records.   Topstockblog endorses Joe Biden because of his voting record.  

  Topstockblog does share a few worries about the Barrack Husein Obama – Joeseph R. Biden Junior Ticket for the 2008 president election. Joe Biden has been overly critical of Barrack Obama according to an MSNBC link below.   Joe Biden did vote for the war in Iraq; not good. The campaign may be to closely tied with bailing out rich investors. Responsibly American’s need to be given more of the credit for the good choices they have made. The suffering that goes on in our communities can be alleviated through thoughtful legislation led by thoughtful + intelligent people. The American government needs to become more intelligent. When we loan banks money because they have run out of money the American public needs to gain in the upside of any future money made on these loans. What is good for Corporations is good for Americans. Prophets; not Profits need to lead our world. Generous loans or bailouts saving bond holders + share holders is not appropriate unless radical change in governments around the world occur to support honesty and good will.
  Topstockblog needs to get new legislation through the government removing the executive powers ability to take facts away from the senate and congress. Ignorance only goes so far. Facts led by responsibility is needed.  
  Barrack Husein Obama is lucky to have had his experiences growing up over seas to know that war was not the best way forward.  Topstockblog was also against the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Joe Biden and Topstockblog both have suffered severe head trauma.  Not good; of course we are both relatively young at ages 65 and 32 respectively.   Senator John Mcain was a prisoner of war for years in Vietnam. Not good. 

 said he wanted a vice president who could help him with the economy.  Joe Biden is at the forfront of trade opportunities, understading, and awareness being chairman of the Foriegn Relations Commitee.
MSN just ran an article on Barrack Obama’s choice of Joe Biden to be the Democratic vice president in the 2008 election.
Here are some of Joe Biden’s voting record,
MSNB Barrack Obama to speak this evening + leaking of V.P. choice.
– Voted 2003 to use military force in Iraq.
– Voted 2003 against the Bush tax cuts.
– Voted against Republican Supreme Court nominees William Rehnquist, Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito.

Should congress prosecute Karl Rove the brain of George W. Bush?

Democrats.com supports prosecuted Karl Rove and switching away from ATT phone services.  I have attached an impressive list of sources included in the email.  Toptsockblog like takes a bearish position on ATT going forward.  A friend was sold the stock through soliciation over the phone at much higher prices in the IPO that was well over priced.

—– Below Sources cited in Democrats.com newsletter  to support claims ——

Sources:

1) Just a few weeks ago, CREDO teamed up with Brave New Films to help deliver more than 120,000 signatures to House Judiciary Committee members, calling on them to hold Rove in contempt and arrest him if necessary to compel his sworn testimony.

2) AT&T’s support of Bush-Cheney in 2000 here: http://images.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/fecimg/?20035274581 and 2004 here: http://images.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/fecimg/?24990933215 .

Some people believe Karl Rove should be prosecuted for criminal crimes.
Topstockblog is not sure on the best course forward. An investigation seems like a step in the right direction. Certainly political activism like reading and or discussing tough topics would be helpful. Can we really expect government to do all the policing if the peole do not care or take the time to care? does believe in governing using methods from the 1800’s. Comedian Ben Stien calls Karl Rove a good friend and describes Karl as good hearted. Topstockblog believes an appology from Karl Rove to the world would be appropriate.  Karl is said to have been part of a conspiracy Topstockblog recently watched on a plan that ws formed by the rich and elite to control the world forever with little concern for others.  Again, mistakenly a few individuals had innapropriate influence over important details in the economy with out concern for the people.   ignorant did not account for principles of technology, innovation, and intelligence to be able to do more with less while taking other complex variables into account to maximize satisfaction while minimizing harm. For example a basic principle of doctors of do no harm could be brought into all industries to increase the friendlyness of our economy.
Just because strategies of trickery used during the 1800’s worked in business, doesn’t mean we should not work to find better ways. The world needs to work to find ways we can work towards solving problems in the most positive way. Setting minimum standards and aiming towards other appropriate standards.
Democrats.com is an aggressive website targeting illegal, inappropriate, and other bad intentioned behavior that has gone on in Washington D.C.

Jamaica proving to be the fastest humans; Topstockblog sponsors 2nd child through Christian’s Children’s Fund.

 

 !Congratulations Jamicai!  Beijing, China –
The Jamaica track team is having a very strong performance at the 2008 Summer Olympics.   Shelly Ann Fraser won the women’s gold medal followed by teammates dead heating for the silver.  She is beautiful.  check out joyous picture at Yahoo Sports.

 

Topstockblog sponsored a 2nd child through Christians Childrens fund.  Topstockblog is now the proud sponsor of a handsome and intelligent 7 year old young man from Northern Vietnam.  His community has a vast number of needs that often go unmet.  He lives in a community that follows Thai belief system.  To raise True ( American translation) out of poverty I have to help his whole community.   True goes to school almost every day in his community.  The school is very poor, and has no electricity or water flow.  Topstockblog is very excited about this opportunity to help True, and his community.   Looking forward to learning more about his life, and culture.  I sent his community $500 dollars to help meet needs.  I sent $24 a month paid for the next six months, and $200 for the community to use to buy goats for breeding.   Goats are a tough animal that adapt to many conditions, easy to raise, and sell quickly.  Topstockblog bought Sandra’s family some goats over the years, and this is helping Sandra’s family out greatly.
In my seven year experience with Christians Children’s fund it has been wonderful. Most positive experience of my life. My first child Sandra is ten years old. She lives near Mexico City, and currently enoying being a ten year old kid.  Sandra, and her family express their thanks in writing, and through good actions.  All leters are translated free of charge, and typed neatly with the original letter.  Accounting standards are hight at Christian’s Childrens Fund.  I recieve pictured documentation of all the supplies + holiday gifts I have bought Sandra over the years.  I am very proud to help her family live a better life.  Her parents work very hard, and make good choices.  Sandra wants to be a school teacher when she gets older.  I hope to share more in the future about my experience with my sponsored children with respect for their privacy.

Government and mass media suppress the truth in the United States; Lower Taxes key to a moral society

 

The United States government is suppressing science and technology.   The executive branch (President – George W. Bush) suppresses technology, environmental, and probably much more from even the other houses of government by executive privileges.   Lets stop accusing China of media control until we are effectively dealing with our own problems of suppression.   Any time I publish anything of controversy it is systematically suppressed.  This happens with far to great a frequency to be random chance.  Limiting dissent (acess – distribution) of information in the United States written by Jules Boykoff of the American University. The Western Political Science Association held a conference in 2004 to discuss the significance of Limiting dissent of information in the United States.

Ballot initiatives fairly worded are the key to a successful election in the United States.   As the world reaches and exceeds maximum sustainable population at over three point some odd billion people the truth is the only possible cure. 

   Some businesses, corporations, and people have found ways to beat people down to recognize profits.  Taking advantage of slim margins that are most effective with high taxation policies.  With high rates of taxes corporations invest heavily in finding ways to not pay taxes.   Two thirds of corporations paid nothing in taxes last year.   Russia has moved to a flat taxes at 13 percent, proving highly successful in increasing taxes collected  and reducing fraud.   The need for lower taxes is clearly transparent.  Lower Taxes is key to reducing fraud in the world economy, and in this case horse racing.  For example Algorithims are the prescribed method of trading much of the money in the stock market.   Large parties control all aspects of the trade targeting small investors. Recently many  stocks have become so over sold despite profits because of the system is so unfriendly there are no real buyers.   Honest discussions and fair coverage of all sides of issues is a clear path to real solutions.

Georgia should make peace, Russia should re-explain the military actions.

 

(Update 8./20/2008 – Russia still has yet to figure out how to go forward with Georgia.  Russia and concerned citizen’s around the world world the United States government is biased against Russia.  Topstockblog asks readers what is best going forward for evolution?  Topstockblog has no idea; but, a careful guess tells me Russia should establish some kind of comprehensive understanding with the United States on reducing bias.  For example congress may be responding to filtered data provided by the executive branch on the subject.  An honest senator may well have voted for the war in Iraq regretable because of filtered data.  Honest leaders, careful communication, hard work, technology, people, and innovation all should play a part in resolving the conflict.  )

(Update 8/15/2008 – Russia explains that Georgia has been posturing, and speaking aggressively about the military plans towards Russia.  Topstockblog reafirms it’s support to Russia, and to work with Russia.  Russian diplomat expressed a strong willingness to work with the United States to meet challenges of the world, and a firm respect for the United States.)

Google has deleted Georgia maps indicating Russia has won the war annexing Georgia.  Topstockblog supports the Russian move to take over the geographically desirable land of Georgia.  Georgia will bring a beautiful part of ocean front property to Russia.  This move greatly increases Russia’s ability to be a lasting world power.   The move is aggressive.  The territory is historically under Russian rule is in part why Topstockblog stands behind the aggressive Russian military excercise.

  The move does violate international aggreements.  I encourage Russia to come forward with an intelligent explanation for the decision to take over Georgia.   Topstockblog stands firmly against evil intentions; please explain your actions Russia.

Larry Kudlow wants to be positive on the market, In July 2008 Larry said, “Short Oil, and Drill – Drill solutions!”

 Larry Kudlow of CNBC is looking for tax cuts.  Larry likes goldilocks economy – not to hot; not to cold.  on every evening at 5 p.m eastern time.   I hope to catch a show soon Larry.  At my last update Larry wanted to believe in a summer rally.   (Monday July 28th 2008)  Carley Furino “called for a depression if Barack Obama is elected.”   A stark contrast to the tremendous success Barrack’s recent visit with world leaders brought to aligning world interests in sensible ways.  Mad Money’s Jim Cramer talked about a news conference disclosing SEC policy enforcement of Short Selling rules already on the books to protect Americans, and he assumes the rest of the people of the world.

Being a good person will help you keep your job. + Republican senator loses presidential campaign post for calling America a nation of whiners.

Being a nice person was the point that stands out in a John Tesh radio broadcast offering helpful tips on dieting, and life skill development.  Eating an apple 5 minutes before a meal or other healthy appetizer will help your diet results. A  regular planned snack at night was also shown to help your diet in a study.  

   John also talked about what empoyers and co-workers look for in other employees.  Likeability was high on the list.   If you do a good job; but, are a jerk.  You better change your tactics and try to be a nice person.  Employers and co-workers favor pleasant co- workers.  Even if they have less skills.   Make three friends at work, and you are almost certain to enjoy your job. John Tesh Radio Show.

“America is a bunch of whiners that puts the nation in a mental recesion. ” by Texas Senator  (R) Phil Gramm. Caused the senator to lose his job as campain co-manager for John Mcain presidential campaign. Reality of negative viewpoints, policy, and comments like these are worth observing. John Mcain is a bit out of touch with the world, and probably not capable of doing a good job. I hope that , and what they call the brain of the operation is a lack of touch with suffering of people around the world.

Is gambling fun or a problem for society?

 

Bush's Social Security Gamble

About.com originally found

Is gambling fun or a problem for society?  That depends.  Too much of anything is a bad thing.  So Gambling should be done only occasionally to be really fun. Particularly for those inexperienced with gambling.  Gambling can be fun; but, addictive and innappropriate for some people.  I enjoy gambling very much. Gambling of all sorts can be entertaining.  National Council on Problem gambling website  helps connect people who want or even suspect they may need help with gambling.

When gambling takes place with a low take out, and gamblers move their money through the system with a positive experience while tax revenue is collected.  Gambling is an asset to the communities bringing in billions of dollars ever year in taxes.  Money spent in casino’s and race tracks around the world goes through the economy many times quickly.  More times than a normal dollar because the same dollar is repeatedly wagered giving action and happiness to people that would not be created otherwise.

     A Gamble should have near a zero positive or negative expectation to be truly fun.  In poker they call this pot odds.  Make sure the pot is offering you near the odds of you winning the pot or better odds. When you are going to make a bet the odds should be remotley fair for gambling to be fun.   In LasVegas, Nevda Casinos typically return more of the money to the customer to offer customers the most value for the money. At many Racetracks, and casinos the takes outs are very high, and can not be beaten most of the time.   Sports gambling can be a lot of fun in places it is legal and add an extra bit of excitement to the game.  Low take outs should be looked for and encouraged.

  
The Poker Player Alliance website serves to represent poker players in congress with congressman Robert Wexler leading the cause to get on-line poker legalized. Regulation is needed. Poker is a game of skill when taking all the possible know variables into account when making decisions.  Start with good cards is a good way to play.  Be careful not to be too predictable, and remember the later your position the easier it will be to make good decisions getting to act after you have seen what the other players do.

   If you gamble frequently you should look into gambling rebates, bonus, gifts, and other available rebate programs to give you that edge you need to have a legitimate chance to be near break even.   Horse tracks offer legal gambling in many states over the internet. Bet small, and spread your money out is a good way to have fun, and manage your risk. Place and show bets are often bad bets because the track takes a higher breakage percentage. Getting a rebate or free stuff for gambling can be a way to get closer to a break even expectation gambling, and maybe even making a few bucks gambling .

Try to position your bets with a positive expectation.  Get a favorable odds when wagering versus what you expect to get back when I win. Realizing you will lose many bets. Winning and losing is part of gambling. Keeping a balance in life builds good karma. Balance is more easily achieve for some than others.
Take your time to learn any game well if you want it to be more than fun. reality that falls far from perfect to over come. After years of counseling I am a tough gambler not carrying all of my old baggage. Experience takes time to build, and we all have lots of time.

Regulation ofr on-line at poker, and video gambling sites would be helpful. Many sites will take your money and not return it. Horse racing is legal to bet online.   

 Some people, cultures, governments, and religions do not speak highly of gambling or out right ban gambling.  Truth be told through my eyes is anything that entertains, adds value to peoples lives, and has no victims is not a crime.  Gambling does pose a significan amount of risk for some. Regulation, and access to needed help is effective along with lifes lesson. Most of the time people should not gamble because they will lose their money.  On a positive note you can spend a nice afternoon, and or evening gambling at a casino, horse track, from your computer, or with friends from time to time for entertainment. 
  When I gamble I like to bet on horse races.  Horse races have been a part of my life since I was a kid.  I live in a town with two horse tracks.  Lived in Vegas twice.   When visiting stay on the main strip ( I recommend the MGM or Hooters is a less expensive hotel and still centrally located) and be careful not to venture to far off the strip.

Daily excercise suggestions for all

Any exercise is better than none at all.  Finding the time to take care of your body will have a positive impact on your life, and the people around you.

Getting in good physical shape is a challenge. With busy schedules, air conditioning, and conveniences it is easy to see how people become over weight.  In fact getting in any type of shape at all is a mystery to millions of Americans. As my father would say “being over weight is something I understand.”

In Topstockblog tradition I found some exercise websites to share.   This exercises/health website has a nice article on Daily excercise suggestions for adults.

 Video Jug offers free video’s on a variety of work outs, and a number of other subjects.

Ask Men the benefits of Aerobic exercises to burn more fat. Ask Men boasts over 5 million readers a month.

Plyometric excercise is always something Topstockblog has wanted to learn more about.  About.com offers some insight in Plyometric excercise is used by high level atheletes to improve athletic performance.

Waste needs to be better managed around the world.

Waste should be reduced.

 Observation plays a large role in my belief that waste should be reduced.  Books, courses, experience, and research all influence my view point.  For most people problems of waste are of little importance and can be pushed to the sides.   Waste of of food, natural resources, and garbage can be reduced more.  Environmental damage needs to be reduced by human impact.  is the biproduct of humans being put on the side for someone else to deal with.  Alot of waste goes on.  Cool people don’t waste all the time.   Dealing with waste problems early is a good idea in my opinion.   Every one has a different view point.    On the fringes of the worlds serious waste problems should be dealt with.  Every one has their role to play in reducing waste.

Networking, learning, sharing, and adding value.

Networking is a key to success in life.   The people you meet in life have a lot to offer as does life.  Through networking we benefit from what others know and have to trade. 

   Trade takes many forms.  A successful trade is one in which both parties gain from the trade.  Successful trade is at the base of a developed civilization.  I have a college degree in economics and a minor in education.  So, blogging is fun for myself.  Recently I have been using this website to to add value and gain an audience to influence.   My blog has recently received a number of incoming links.  I thank all those who linked  to articles at topstockblog.  Linking other helpful websites is a form of trade that many bloggers benefit from along with their readers.  I have found it important to learn from others websites with intelligent articles, and ideas.  When blogging keep in mind your target audience and what they would like to read.  I have found editing past posts is a helpful way to improve your websites quality. 

 I would like to send a special thanks to yolynne.wordpress.com a blogger who has inspired this article on the value of networking with your peers.  She advocates communicating with other bloggers attempting to work from home. http://yolynne.wordpress.com/2008/06/05/workhome-for-filipinos/

Bin Laden speaks out!! American speaks back!!


Alot of good information is available to use to look at stock market charts yahoo finance
*** Sorry, interupted by the latest Bin Ladden message directed towards the west. *****

Topstockblog calls for an end of violent preaching by Osama Bin Laden.   As a citizen of the United States of America I supports appropriate influence and good values. I do not support the inappropriate influence of money supporting any unmoral goals.  We all share in homeland concerns of all people. I do particularly share my concern of the palestinian people who have paid too high a price for living in such an other wise beautiful part of the world. I and many American people support the Palestian people in their struggle for peace. We have friends who are from Israel. People supporting their friends is an American tradition. Honest communication, and a goal of appropriate influence I hope will be your goal Mr. Bin Ladden.
Topstockblog supports honest people looking to influence the world in a positive way. Topstockblog.wordpress.com Peace is the ultimate way of all people to evolve into a less violent, and more successful society.
Bin Laden goes to far, and I just had to get this out. Honest comunication should support democracy.

Can you make money working from home?

Making money working from home is a very hard accomplishment to achieve. I know from personal experience…lol
1. Who is your target market?
2. Is your product legal?
3. How much competition is out there?
4. What advantages do you have that may allow you to make money?
5. Does your business have value in your community outside the internet?

Topstockblog.wordpress.com is my attempt at blogging to generate web traffic to hopefully make some money adding value to the world we live in. I am averaging about 20 viewers a day. I am finding it very hard to increase viewership. I will just work hard and see where this leads me. I do enjoy blogging. I do like to be at home so that is an added benefit of my life of working from home

Past thoughts on CRM

 

(January 18th, 2008 –  CRM is trading lower this morning, and I think it may be the beginning of a big move lower.   Friday  January 18th, 2008      10:30 am

  I must say thank you Cramer from Mad Money for the UA information last weak that helped me make the move to short the stock.  I lost a little shorting CRM last week another Mad Money stock from Cramer about possibility of sell off.  Today the market seems to be positioned to take the stock lower when the market is open.  CRM has very little earnings;not good in my opinion.  Growth expectations to high for slow or bear market based on principles of doing more with less.  The competition is coming from all angles.  It is just too easy to duplicate customer management software.   Good customer service, followed up witha letter, and a couple of phone calls over the next year is not worth billions of dollars.  Not saying that’s all CRM does; but, you get the point.   INTUjust entered the market with a simple customer support  service that customers can call to get help.   The article pointed out other competitors CNQR , INTU, OMTR,TLEO,SFSF,N,PAYX.  It also mentioned GOOG in the article not as a competitor; but, as a source of new business for the sector.  I can see GOOG is looking to grow to move into the sector with the low barriers to entry.  Google has good street cred as Cramer would say when it comes to delivering a friendly product that makes investors mullah. –Some adlib–

   Pricing pressure in customer management from advertising or lack ther of.   To other anticipated slow downs that can hurt. , business cutbacks,  and churn should all erode CRM’s future hopes.  At least that my opinion.   http://www.forbes.com/2008/01/17/saas-recession-concur-tech-enter-cx_sm_0118saas.html?partner=yahootix
