Artificial Stock Prices


WHAT WORRIES ME:

With every Fed-induced rally comes the risk of an artificially valued stock and bond market and an ugly correction when the Fed goes public with QE withdrawal.

For the most part, I have been bullish since my March 10, <a href=http://www.agoshow.net/Angels-48-Torii-Hunter-White-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-56/>Angels 48 Torii Hunter White 2010 All Star Jerseys</a> 2009 鈥渂uy.鈥?And I still believe the bull has room to run, that it eventually will enter the stage that characterizes the end of most bull markets, namely speculation in small company stocks and the return of the individual investor.

It isn鈥檛 going to get there in a straight line, corrections will occur along the way.

One of those corrections will accompany the realization the Fed is backing away from its stimulus policy.

That can develop if the economic recovery accelerates and jobs pick up and Fed action becomes a sure thing, or it can result from Fed commentary/action.

Either way, the higher the stock market is driven by Fed chief Bernanke鈥檚 direct, ( or inferred), commentary that it is not close to 鈥渢apering鈥?out of QE, the bigger the tumble when it finally does come.

We saw interest rates shoot up and bond and stock markets plunge

immediately after Fed chair Bernanke鈥檚 comments June 19 that the Fed may begin to ease out of QE by year-end with a total withdrawal by mid-1014.

Not only did the Fed dispatch FRB presidents for damage control, prompting a sharp rally, but Bernanke spoke again Wednesday essentially, saying accommodation will continue, though gave no specifics about easing out of QE.

The market did what <a href=http://www.agoshow.net/Rockies-2-Troy-Tulowitzki-Road-Cool-Base-Grey-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-89/>Rockies 2 Troy Tulowitzki Road Cool Base Grey 2010 All Star Jerseys</a> would be expected, it rallied.

Would the market be at these levels without another goose by the Fed ?

When the Fed withdrawal correction comes, it will come from artificially higher levels and it could get very ugly, because the Fed won鈥檛 be there to play catch.

I think Bernanke Co. has done a great job, but I am VERY disturbed by what I have seen over the last 30 days - INCONSISTENCY. I am not now sure it knows how to get out without major repercussions in stock and bond market. Why else would it panic last month ?

TODAY:

While the DJIA and S P 500 hit my targets yesterday, I wasn鈥檛 happy they did.

It suggests the level of stock prices is increasingly dependent on Fed assurance that QE will continue.

As if it isn鈥檛 enough that the economy must breast feed, now the stock market is also fully addicted.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE FED DOES THE INEVITABLE 鈥?BACKS OUT OF QE ?

This market is driven by hopes the economic recovery is solid but not strong enough to prompt Fed taper. That鈥檚 not a good reason for higher prices.

There is going to be a trade off here 鈥?an accelerating economy in exchange for QE. I鈥檒l take the economy ten out of ten times.

But the transition from one to the other stands to be disruptive. If stock prices have been driven up sharply by continued QE, the correction in stock and bond market could be nasty, really nasty.

The DJIA and S P 500 could new hit all-time highs today, 15,542 and 1,687 respectively. While I think a good cash reserve is warranted now, I think that would be a good reason to increase it even more.

Investor鈥檚 first read 鈥?an edge before the open

DJIA: 15,460.92

S P 500: 1,675.02

Nasdaq Comp.: 3,578.30

TECHNICAL COMMENTS 鈥?STOCKS:

The following comments are based on 鈥渢echnical analysis,鈥?which is intended to reflect the consensus of the Street at a given time.

Apple (AAPL: $427.28)

Wrong read. While AAPL may have gotten s boost from the overall market yesterday, it鈥檚 move up deserves respect. Late day buying reversed an attempt to slip below $426. Resistance begins at $436, but the big hurdle will be its July 23d, Q3 earnings report which is expected to show no-growth year-over-year.

Odds favor AAPL has seen its lows for 2013, but it has had 5 false moves since its September 2012 high of $705.

I really think management should be out there selling an image of an innovator, industry leader and great service company. What this company brings to the table is worth 12 times earnings, just because it is Apple. It sells at less than 10 x earnings, yields 2.9% and has a ton of cash. What will this company look like 3 years from now ?

FACEBOOK (FB - $25.81)

FB looks ready to attack resistance is now $26.75. The pattern here has been for sharp moves to be quickly followed by a 3-4 day correction. This move should be good for another day or two. I am raising support to $25.50.

I DO NOT OWN, NOR HAVE I EVER OWNED APPLE OR FB.

ECONOMY:

The Street is now faced with a choice 鈥?Is it hoping for disappointing reports and an increase in the likelihood that the Fed won鈥檛 back away from QE soon ? Or will it hope for upbeat reports, a sign that QE has been helping. It can鈥檛 have it both ways 鈥?For access to information including charts and graphics go to .

FRIDAY:

Producer Prices (8:30) Proj. for June 13: + 0.5%

Consumer Sentiment (9:55) Proj.: July 13 84.1 vs. 84.5

Blame Game After Athletes Too Old for Games


Who鈥檚 to blame for sending at least a dozen overage Indian athletes to compete at the ongoing Asian Youth Games in China? Neither the Sports Authority of India, India鈥檚 sporting federation, nor the Athletics Federation of聽India, the apex athletics body in the country, seem to know the answer to that question.

Late Sunday, selectors in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing where the games began Friday ordered at least 12 track-and-field Indian athletes to return home after authorities found them to be too old to compete in the tournament, a senior official from the AFI told India Real Time.

The disqualification has prompted a tussle among Indian sporting agencies 鈥?the SFI, the AFI and the Indian Olympic Association 鈥?with representatives of each body blaming the other for failing to adhere to regulations for the event.

Fresh rules for the Asian Youth Games issued by the Olympic Council of Asia in 2011 lowered the age limit for participation from 18 years, as set for the first edition of games in Singapore in 2009, to 17 years for the second edition of the games in China. The new age limit, , would enable the same athletes to compete at the Youth Olympics next year, where the bar is fixed at 18.

India, <a href=http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/nike-san-francisco-49ers-99-aldon-smith-red-team-color-stitched-nfl-elite-drift-fashion-jersey-p-159.html>randy moss 49ers jersey</a> which fielded 27 athletes for this year鈥檚 Asian Youth Games, said those disqualified on Sunday were over 17 years, but under the age of 18.

鈥淲e picked the team based on guidelines for international sporting events, where 18 is the bar. We <a href=http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/site_map.html>http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/site_map.html</a> weren鈥檛 informed that rules had been tweaked for this one event,鈥?Adille Sumariwalla, the secretary of the AFI 鈥?the body to pick the athletics team 鈥?said.

鈥淚t is the duty of the Indian Olympic Association to inform us about any such change,鈥?he added.

The IOA, meanwhile, is juggling with its own set of challenges. In December last year, the International Olympic Committee suspended the IOA for violating the Olympic Charter, particularly for government interference in its election process and for failing to restrict time-bound tenures in its leadership.

The suspension forbids Indian athletes from competing under the national flag at 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janerio and also bans the country from receiving funds from the IOC.

IOA President Vijay Kumar Malhotra, who approved the athletics team for the Asian Youth Games, said the responsibility for the error lay with the AFI. 鈥淚t is the job of the AFI to ensure selection takes place according to requisite guidelines. I gave my approval for the athletics team believing they would have done so,鈥?Mr. Malhotra told India Real Time.

The Sports Authority of <a href=http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/nike-seattle-seahawks-3-russell-wilson-green-stitched-nfl-elite-drift-fashion-jersey-p-4.html>Wilson Green Jerseys</a> India also distanced itself from the disqualification.

鈥淭he burden of responsibility rests with the AFI and the IOA. We have nothing to do with this,鈥?said an SFI official, who declined to be named. The official acknowledged that the SFI had sanctioned visas for the athletics team, but said the body had no role to play in selection.

The three sporting bodies also differ about the number of athletes found to be over age for the event.

Mr. Sumariwalla of the AFI, for instance, said 12 athletes had been disqualified. IOA鈥檚 Mr. Malhotra, on the other hand, claimed 17 were too old to compete. The SFI official, meanwhile, said as many as 19 athletes had been asked to return.

Organizers for the 2013 Asian Youth Games could not be immediately reached for comment.

鈥淚t鈥檚 a shame how India鈥檚 sporting bodies are washing their hands off any responsibility,鈥?said Janit Desai, who heads communications at Mumbai-based nonprofit聽, which scouts for and trains athletes. 鈥淭he callous attitude of sporting heads, this is exactly why India鈥檚 performance in sports remains so poor,鈥?he added.

Despite over 90 years of participation at the Olympics, India 鈥?home to 1.2 billion people 鈥?has a paltry record at the Summer Games.聽 The country won its first 鈥?and so far only individual gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Last year, India , the country鈥檚 highest-ever tally at the event.

Sporting observers little will change unless India鈥檚 sporting federations 鈥?most of which are headed by politicians 鈥?are made transparent and accountable.

鈥淧oor governance is a key hurdle in the road to clean up and revamp Indian sport,鈥?Mr. Desai said.

Sen. Heller- Keep mortgage forgiveness debt relief tax_0


For many underwater Nevada homeowners, the most important part of the New Year鈥檚 Day fiscal cliff deal wasn鈥檛 the assurance that their income tax rates wouldn鈥檛 rise, but the guarantee that for the coming year, they could refinance their mortgages or short-sell their houses without owing income taxes on the money they saved.

But in another six months, that guarantee will expire 鈥?potentially setting back financially strapped homeowners by tens of thousands of dollars.

Now, senators from the two of the states hit hardest by the bursting of the housing bubble are trying to make sure Congress extends mortgage forgiveness tax relief for at least two years.

Nevada Sen. Dean Heller and Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow released a bill Wednesday that would extend mortgage forgiveness tax relief until the end of 2015.

鈥淚f Congress does not act this year, then thousands of Nevadans who are underwater in their homes will be forced to pay a tax at a time when what they need is some relief,鈥?Heller said. 鈥淭his legislation is a common sense approach that will prevent Nevadans from being taxed on income they never received.鈥?
In 2007, Congress passed the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, which allowed homeowners to exempt up to $2 million of forgiven home mortgage debt to be written tax-free. Before then, the IRS taxed any debt that was waived as income.

The extension of the provision under the fiscal cliff bill provided significant relief to Nevada homeowners, about 60 percent of whom were underwater on their mortgages at the time of passage. In the first quarter of 2013, about 45 percent of Nevada mortgages are underwater 鈥?an improvement, but still enough to rank the Silver State as the worst in the nation.

As a 鈥淗ardest Hit鈥?state, Nevada has federal money dedicated to encouraging banks and other mortgage service providers to reduce the principal on underwater loans. The idea of principal reduction is that by reducing the overall amount owed, it becomes more manageable for homeowners to pay off their debt and stay in their homes. Recipients of the assistance cannot earn more than one and a half times the <a href=http://www.wholesalefootballtshirts.com/minnesota-timberwolves-c-73_81>Minnesota Timberwolves T Shirts</a> area鈥檚 median income 鈥?which was $48,927 in Las Vegas in 2011 鈥?and cannot have a mortgage balance of more than $427,184 in Clark County.

Such principal reductions can be worth up to $100,000, according to <a href=http://www.wholesalefootballtshirts.com/san-antonio-spurs-c-73_84>wholesale San Antonio Spurs T Shirts</a> the state鈥檚 Department of Business and Industry 鈥?a significant amount to be taxed as income, should mortgage forgiveness tax relief expire.

Meet Rebecca Davis, bringing ballet to post_0


MHP Foot Soldier Rebecca Davis nonprofit organization performs ballet based on history and literature to genocide-stricken nations.

The Melissa Harris-Perry Foot Soldier this week quite literally uses her feet and arms and legs, to be fair to make a difference.

Rebecca Davis turned her love of dance into a nonprofit organization that promotes ethnic reconciliation among youth in post-genocide countries in Africa and Eastern Europe and connects them with educational opportunities. She is the founder of the , a professional dance company that performs ballets based on literature and history.

One of the company鈥檚 performances focused on Darfur, and sparked Davis interest in understanding more about post-conflict countries. So she traveled to Rwanda, where her experiences led her change the mission of RDDC to focus on underserved youth in Rwanda, Guinea, and Bosnia-Herzegovina and currently works with over 800 youth per year. I asked Rebecca about that change and the work RDDC does.

After the premiere of the ballet about Darfur you traveled to Rwanda. What happened next?

Experiencing Rwanda, for anyone who鈥檚 been there, knows it鈥檚 almost impossible to describe properly. The immense devastation and yet to see the society recover so remarkably, powerfully and well in such a short period of time is just mind boggling. And yet I see these kids who are living on the streets and have just fallen between the cracks of society. And I could connect with them so quickly because they love to dance and I love to dance.

So I came back to my company and for the next several months it was an internal struggle of: well, I鈥檝e seen this happening in the world聽and I鈥檝e seen these kids need help, and yet I run a dance company here that uses the tool that can reach those kids. So what can I do differently with my organization in order to provide this type of service to those kids because I think they really need it and no one else is providing it for them?

That eventually led to in 2010 a mission change- closing of the Philadelphia studio in order to free up my time and my dancers time to work internationally聽and set up programs in the three countries we work now: Guinea, Rwanda and Bosnia.

Tell me about the three countries you picked; how did you pick them?

Dance is just a powerful tool [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/new-york-yankees-c-1_21]Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys[/url] of reaching children; it鈥檚 just an incredible equalizer. And working with different ethnicities that have hostilities towards one another, dance is one of the few mechanisms that can be put in place that dispels the separation of ethnicity. So that鈥檚 why we started with Rwanda, and the first phases of the program were specifically focused on mixing the Tutsi and Hutu children together.

[In Rwanda the youth we work with] participate in our dance programs three days a week and they have basic computer class IT training twice a week. And the top students are then sponsored to go to boarding school and reintegrated into the formal education system in a school in Rwanda.

In Guinea鈥?we work with street children as well as underserved youth in Guinea in the city of Kindia. The kids have their dance program daily followed by a meal program there鈥檚 severe lack of nutrition in Guinea, dealing with again the state of poverty. And then following the meal program they have a literacy program and then English language.

And in Bosnia, we work in the city called Mostar and here it really is focused on ethnic reconciliation, where we have a program serving Croat children and Bosnian children. And the educational component is social dialogue discussions based on reconciliation.

Why is it important to have people from the local community be involved?

RDDC runs the only American on full time contract is me; everyone else is local to the country or a partial contract to come augment the skills abroad. 聽And the type of work the RDDC does is only possible because we have locals leading it in country.

I think that one of the most important things that young students who are aspiring for careers in international development can learn is that鈥?these are not our countries and these are not our children, and we need to listen to the local communities and the local leaders to really understand what鈥檚 needed there. And if we have the ability to help them help themselves we should do it. And if we don鈥檛 we should move on.

Tell me about the reception to the programs from the children.

The kids have been amazing, which is probably not a surprise. But the reason that our [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/cleveland-browns-c-115_442_450]Cheap Cleveland Browns Jerseys[/url] program works and the kids come and they like it is because we鈥檙e initially reaching them through dance and dance is non-confrontational; dance doesn鈥檛 have the idea of, 鈥淚鈥檓 teaching you, you listen to me, you have to do everything I say.鈥?Dance is an environment where we do instruct and we do lead, but there鈥檚 room for each child to be his own in that environment.

What is in store for your company in the future?

Our goal this year is to raise for the awareness and support for the program in Rwanda because many of our children now are ready [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/new-york-yankees-c-1_21]Cheap New York Yankees Jerseys[/url] to go to boarding school, but we need the secure support for them to actually be sponsored to go to boarding school, which is a really important component for them because that鈥檚 the only way that they鈥檒l quit the street life permanently.

When they go to boarding school they have a place to sleep, they have three meals a day, they get a school uniform to wear and they get an education. So that鈥檚 kind of the complete solution for these children.

Davis paid a visit to the Melissa Harris-Perry set for an interview on Saturday. See the video below.

Immigration Reform Heads to Senate Floor _2


This week, a U.S. Senate committee approved sweeping immigration proposals pushed by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL. (Photo: Flickr.)

By
Florida Center for Investigative Reporting

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill Tuesday night. The bill, which includes a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants and tighter border security, now heads to the U.S. Senate floor for final consideration.

A bipartisan group of eight senators led by Marco Rubio, R-Florida, drafted the legislation and have worked to make this the year sweeping immigration reform finally passes.聽Their bill is now a step closer to becoming law, and immigration reform a step closer to becoming reality.

:

The vote was 13 to 5, with Democrats joined by three Republicans Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch, who secured a last-minute change adding more visas for tech workers. The bill now goes to the full Senate for consideration. Even tougher prospects lie in the House, which has yet to produce its own bill.

Florida聽Republican聽Sen.聽Marco Rubio聽is not on the committee but was a critical member of the Gang of 8 that wrote the bill. Rubio lent support for amendments that were added to provide even tighter enforcement, including an exit visa tracking system.

However, gay rights advocates and union officials have said the bill is imperfect.

Rubio was part of an effort to keep an amendment out of the bill that would have allowed non-citizens whose same-sex partners are Americans to聽receive automatic green card privilege.聽Currently, only married heterosexual couples have this privilege.

there was a significant effort among conservatives to keep this out of the bill:

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, perhaps the main Republican shepherd of the immigration bill in the Senate, has warned the amendment could kill the bill, saying that 鈥渋f that issue is injected into this bill, this bill will fail. It will not have the support. It will not [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/oklahoma-sooners-c-86_104]Cheap Oklahoma Sooners Jerseys[/url] have my support.鈥?Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.)聽聽the New York Times the provision was a 鈥渄eal-breaker for most Republicans.鈥?
[Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Patrick聽Leahy, D-Vermont], of course, disputes that,聽聽Politico, 鈥淚t鈥檚 not going to kill the bill.鈥?Jonathan Rauch, a leading gay libertarian,聽聽if for nothing else than as a test of Republicans. 鈥淛ust how much electoral support and moral standing does the GOP want to give up to affirm its hostility to homosexuals?鈥?Rauch [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/detroit-tigers-c-1_24]Cheap Detroit Tigers Jerseys[/url] asks.

The effort to keep the measure out of the bill succeeded.

Unions, on the other hand, are upset over an added provision that would create an easier visa process for high-tech workers.

:

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka called the amendments job killers for U.S. workers.

鈥淟et鈥檚 be clear: Senator Orrin Hatch鈥檚 H-1B amendments are unambiguous attacks on American workers,鈥?Trumka said.

鈥淗atch鈥檚 amendments change the bill so that high tech companies could functionally bring in H-1B visa holders without first making the jobs available to American workers. Hatch鈥檚 amendments would mean that American corporations could fire American workers in order to bring in H-1B visa [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/cleveland-browns-c-115_442_450]Cheap Cleveland Browns Jerseys[/url] holders at lower wages.

鈥淭he next Sergey Brin (co-founder of Google) might be sitting in an American classroom right now,鈥?Trumka said. 鈥淏ut if that future innovator cannot get an entry-level job in high tech because employers prefer importing temporary workers, entrepreneurial innovations will not occur in the United States.

Rubio said the provision聽will boost American job creation.

Despite discontent from gay rights groups and union, immigration reform faces its toughest fight in the more conservative U.S. House.聽Many GOP House members are , which conservatives consider a form of amnesty.

Moderate Republicans such as U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, are working to hammer out the House version of the bill. However, no legislation has been released yet.

Sep. 5, 2013 at 2:47 PM ET
Video: More and more middle and high school students are using e-cigarettes, but federal health officials worry they could act as a gateway for smoking the real thing. NBC鈥檚 Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.The percentage of U.S. high school students who say they have tried e-cigarettes has doubled in the past year to 10 percent, government researchers reported Thursday.<br>They say it鈥檚 a troubling trend as no one knows yet how safe e-cigarettes are, although they are often marketed as a safer alternative to regular cigarettes.鈥淓-cigarette experimentation and recent use doubled among U.S. middle and high school students during 2011鈥?012, resulting in an estimated 1.78 million students having ever used e-cigarettes as of 2012,鈥?researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration wrote in a report.鈥淢oreover, in 2012, an estimated 160,000 students who reported ever using e-cigarettes had never used conventional cigarettes. This is a serious concern because the overall impact of e-cigarette use on public health remains uncertain.鈥漌hile the numbers of kids smoking e-cigarettes aren鈥檛 huge yet, the fact that they are doubling so quickly is a bad sign, said Dr. Tim McAfee, director of the CDC Office on Smoking and Health.聽鈥淚 think the thing of most concern is the trend,鈥?McAfee told NBC News. 鈥淭here aren鈥檛 many things where we see a doubling in one year. We are not talking about adults here. The absolute numbers in middle school are small but they are doubling. We think it is something we need to get ahead of.鈥?br>And, health experts say, tobacco companies are obviously marketing e-cigarettes to young people. 鈥淲ith flavors like bubble gum and cotton candy, e-cigarettes are very clearly being made and marketed in ways that appeal to children,鈥?said Paul Billings of the American Lung Association.鈥淭hese data show the urgent need for oversight of these products,鈥?Billings added the FDA doesn鈥檛 regulate e-cigarettes but wants to.Just 2.8 percent of high school students say they鈥檝e used e-cigarettes in the past 30 days, which suggests many are experimenting but not smoking them steadily - yet. "Nicotine is a highly addictive drug,鈥?says CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden.<br>E-cigarettes are pencil-shaped devices that use [url=http:www.wholesalenflelitejerseys.org]nike nfl jerseys China[/url] a cartridge to deliver an aerosol mist containing nicotine with flavorings.

Koepfler / The News Tribune via AP file More high school students are trying e-cigarettes, the CDC and FDA report They are pricey - an e-cigarette product ranges from $10 to $120, depending on how many charges it provides. And there are dozens, if not hundreds, of brands.聽CDC and FDA researchers looked at answers from the 2011 and 2012 National Youth Tobacco Survey, a pencil-and-paper question颅naire given to students in grades [url=http:www.wholesalenflelitejerseys.org]wholesale NFL jersey from China[/url] 6-12 at their schools.The data show that [url=http://www.wholesalenflelitejerseys.org/san-francisco-49ers-c-598_659]San Francisco 49ers Jerseys[/url] 76.3 percent of middle and high school students who used e-cigarettes within the past 30 days also smoked conventional cigarettes in the same time. And about 20 percent of the middle school students who had tried e-cigarettes said they have never tried conventional cigarettes. The researchers worry that e-cigarettes might act as a gateway to conventional tobacco products. 鈥淎bout 90 percent of all smokers begin smoking as teenagers,鈥?said McAfee. 鈥淲e now have young movie stars being paid to appear in ads on television for the first time in 40 years doing something that looks to all intents and purposes [url=http://www.wholesalenflelitejerseys.org/]wholesale nfl elite jerseys[/url] like smoking.鈥?McAfee fears the promotion may undo years of work marginalizing smoking, banning it from workplaces and restaurants and making it an unpopular habit.Nicotine itself may also be harmful, McAfee added. 鈥淲e are particularly concerned about adolescents being exposed to nicotine in any form because it has the potential to impact their brain development,鈥?he said.About 20 percent of Americans smoke, down from 40 percent in the 1960s. About 18 percent of high school students have smoked one or more cigarettes in the past month.

When Chef Miguel Angel Guerrero Yagues isn鈥檛 in the kitchen smearing mole on his signature wood-fired pizza crust instead of the usual tomato sauce, or using freshly-hunted duck in his burritos, or drenching venison [url=http://www.newfootballjerseys.us/2012-nike-nfl-new-york-jets-10-santonio-holmes-white-jerseyselite-p-8246.html]Holmes White Jerseys[/url] tartare in olive oil, chile and escamoles, aka ant eggs, maybe you can catch him on his motorcycle.
He鈥檒l be the stud with the camo chef coat, a convoy of friends on cycles riding along with him, all followed by trucks filled with guns, fishing harpoons, kayaks, portable grills, camping equipment, and lots and lots of wine.
This fourth-generation Tijuana resident grew up on a ranch and started hunting and fishing at age 5.
鈥淚 watched my family hunt and trim meat and fish. They made cheese and grew produce. When I became a teenager I figured out I should learn how to cook what I caught because girls like a guy who can cook,鈥?Guerrero says.
Despite his skills in the kitchen learned early on, Guererro got his law degree and later opened a market and liquor store. He says it was his wife who convinced him he was too good a cook not to become a chef.
He took her advice and went to Mexico City and studied for a year and half. When he returned to Baja in 2001, he cut his market in half and built his first restaurant in Rosarito called La Querencia. This was the birth of what Guerrero has trademarked as the cuisine he calls 鈥淏aja Med鈥?
With his restaurants El Taller, La Querencia, and Almazara, the chef explains that Baja Med is a combination of influences - Mediterranean recipes with Mexican flavors.
鈥淚t鈥檚 a mix of the easy to grow produce available in Baja [url=http://www.newfootballjerseys.us/2012-nike-nfl-cleveland-browns-33-trent-richardson-elite-white-jerseys-p-9781.html]Richardson White jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.newfootballjerseys.us/women-nike-chicago-bears-17-alshon-jeffery-blue-nfl-jerseys-p-4080.html]chicago bears 17 jerseys women[/url] and both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez.
"The Mediterranean influences I have are from my Spanish culture. Of course traditional Mexican food influences me, and the valleys of Baja or the Valles De Guadelupe鈥攁n area which produces 95% of all the wine made in Mexico. And there鈥檚 a very large Asian population in Baja and that influences my food as well,鈥?Guerrero says.
He recently left his responsibilities and three restaurants behind for a twenty-four day, 2800-kilometer trip through Baja. The chef says they caught fish and hunted everyday, drank great wine, and crossed the Sea of Cortez eight times.
鈥淲e鈥檇 eat elaborate six to eight course meals every night, and sometimes sing Karaoke. It was a trip of a lifetime,鈥?he says.
Though Guerrero could rightfully be a diva, he doesn鈥檛 act like one. He says all he wants to do is cook. He tells a story about a recent dinner guest who ate at his restaurant La Querencia. It was a large table of people, he knew they were Irish, he was asked to go out of the kitchen and talk to them. He says he said hello and chatted for a few minutes. It wasn鈥檛 until he returned to the kitchen that his staff told him the Irish guy was Bono.
He says he doesn鈥檛 know what the future of Baja Med cuisine will be, but he says he鈥檚 glad it鈥檚 on the map for now. 鈥淓leven years ago we had nothing. No one believed we were important. We couldn鈥檛 convince people to come down here for great food,鈥?Guerrero says.
In a couple of months the chef will open a new restaurant called El Taller on 5th. It will be located along a part of the once touristy Revoluci贸n Boulevard. Lately this area in Tijuana is fast making a transition from a time where people commonly posed for photos with painted burrows, looked for cheap tequila and found mediocre food.
Guerrero hopes, as all the new hot Baja chefs probably do, that the rise of interest in this area will continue to grow.
With celebrity chefs like Rick Bayless and Anthony Bordain arriving in Baja recently to see what all the fuss is about, a wider and wider audience is bound to follow.Rebekah Sager is a nationally published lifestyle and culture writer. She's a regular contributor to Fox News Latino.

TBJ reveals the Triangle鈥檚 50 fastest_0


Triangle Business Journal on Monday [url=http://www.3dots.co.in/mcc_panel.html]Nike NFL Jerseys[/url] unveiled its 2013 Fast 50 Awards list of the 50 fastest-growing private companies in the Raleigh-Durham area.
The Fast 50 winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth and profitability in the preceding three years (2010-2012). The numbers are crunched and analyzed by PricewaterhouseCoopers, a Fast 50 partner.
鈥淭hese winners represent organizations who have been champions of growth in the Triangle,鈥?says , publisher of Triangle Business Journal. 鈥淭hese leaders are doing all they can to add jobs and inject cash into our community, and we鈥檙e so thankful for it.鈥?
This year鈥檚 [url=http://adsin.net/side/Arizona-Cardinals-Jerseys.html]Custom Arizona Cardinals Jerseys For Sale[/url] crop of Fast 50 winners features some multi-year winners, including Mutual Distributing Co. and CaptiveAire Systems.
Conversely, the folks at PwC say that nearly half of this year鈥檚 honorees were not on last year鈥檚 list. And quite a few [url=http://www.3dots.co.in/mcc_panel.html]New NFL Jerseys[/url] companies, such as Appia and National Pawn, have never appeared on TBJ鈥檚 Fast 50 list.
Since research is the lifeblood of my professional existence, I decided to break down this year鈥檚 list a bit further. Among this year鈥檚 winners:
Average company age: 20.4 years
Average total employee count: 459
Top four cities represented on the list (by number of companies headquartered there): Raleigh (23); Durham (7); Cary (6); Morrisville (6).
So, now that you鈥檝e been teased, who are this year鈥檚 winners? Click through the slideshow on the right to see an alphabetical list.
The rankings won鈥檛 be [url=http://adsin.net/side/Arizona-Cardinals-Jerseys.html]Arizona Cardinals Jerseys[/url] revealed until the Fast 50 Awards dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at the Raleigh Convention Center in downtown Raleigh. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and should conclude around 9:30 p.m.

Miley Cyrus, Bangerz And The Plot To Kill Hannah Montana


And that鈥檚 exactly the point.
Everything that Miley Cyrus has done over the past few months has been part of a concerted effort to put as much distance between the young star and the character she once played. That鈥檚 one of the specialties of her manager, Larry Rudolph鈥揾e also manages former teen star . And although he declined to comment for this story, he recently  up Cyrus鈥?VMA performance by saying, 鈥淚t could not have gone better.鈥?
Cyrus herself has described the shift in her image even more clearly. In her Saturday Night Live monologue earlier this month, she : 鈥淚鈥檓 not going to do Hannah Montana, but I can give you an update. She was murdered.鈥?
SNL is meant to be funny, but Cyrus鈥?statement was about as serious as it gets. Everything seems to be going according to plan. Though some have accused Cyrus and her team of chasing YouTube views and record sales at the expense of her image, the new Cyrus seems to be as marketable as ever.
鈥淢iley went from like No. 350 on my list of most requested celebrities for brand partnerships to the top ten, practically overnight,鈥?says Adam Kluger, president of product placement firm the Kluger Agency. 鈥淪he鈥檚 not difficult to sell. If it鈥檚 an edgy brand, it鈥檚 going to work.鈥?
To be sure, by doing away with Hannah Montana, Cyrus and her team have killed a golden goose of sorts. Fueled by earnings from the final days of her portrayal of the Disney character, Cyrus pulled in $48 million in 2010. She probably won鈥檛 match that total this year. But the Hannah [url=http://a1corp.in/jerseys/NFL_Jerseys_for_men.html]NFL Jerseys for men[/url] Montana shtick wasn鈥檛 going to last forever.
鈥淚t鈥檚 never easy to transition from being a kid to a grown-up entertainer, [url=http://www.a2zbahrain.com/softwaress.html]Wholesale NFL Jerseys[/url] particularly when you鈥檝e made your mark as a G-Rated celebrity,鈥?says entertainment attorney Lori Landew of Rothschild, who had a hand [url=http://www.a2zbahrain.com/softwaress.html]Wholesale Jerseys[/url] in Britney Spears鈥?first record deal. 鈥淎gain and again, we see these young people struggling with how to be taken seriously as artists when they are so strongly associated with an image or brand.鈥?
Both Landew and Kluger [url=http://a1corp.in/jerseys/NFL_Jerseys_for_men.html]NFL women Jerseys[/url] believe the 鈥渘ew Miley鈥?could be sustainable鈥揳s long as it truly represents part of her personality. And her antics, crude as they may be, don鈥檛 seem too far from the norm for a partygoing college-aged youngster.
鈥淭his doesn鈥檛 mean that this personality can鈥檛 change again,鈥?adds Landew. 鈥淥ne need only look at the many faces of Christina [Aguilera] through her formative years or , for that matter, to know that artists can evolve and stay relevant in an ever-changing market.鈥?
In other words, as Cyrus herself said on SNL: 鈥淚鈥檓 only 20 years old, I need some freedom to grow up and make mistakes. And no matter what happens, I promise I鈥檒l always be true to Miley Cyrus.鈥?
It seems that will hold true regardless of what Hannah Montana fans鈥揳nd their parents鈥搕hink about it.

Use The Holiday Season To Find A Job


Most job seekers think November and December are lousy months to look for work. People are distracted by festivities and family. When potential hiring managers are at their desks, they鈥檙e overwhelmed by year-end deadline pressure. Plus, those who have been job hunting for a long time feel like the holidays present an opportunity to take a break.
But , an Austin, Texas, career coach and author of the book New R sum , New Career, says job-hunters who keep at it are actually more likely to find a job over the holidays. Among the reasons: There鈥檚 less competition, the season puts people in a receptive mood, and all those parties and family gatherings overflow with networking opportunities.
鈥淧eople forget what great resources they have in their current networks,鈥?observes Jewell, who worked in advertising and marketing for 15 years before she became a career coach. Family and friends want to help you, and even if you feel like you already stay in touch regularly, seeing them face-to-face when everyone is in the holiday spirit offers the perfect opportunity for reminding them of exactly what you鈥檙e looking for. Be as specific as you can during your conversations, Jewell advises. 鈥淭ell them the title you鈥檙e looking for, the kind of company,鈥? [url=http://a1corp.in/jerseys/NFL_Jerseys_for_men.html]NFL women Jerseys[/url] she says. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e asking for information.鈥?If you鈥檙e lucky, your cousin knows someone at the firm where you鈥檇 love to work, and can provide a lead.
If you鈥檙e employed and thinking about changing jobs, or if your objective is to make a career switch, holiday gatherings also offer a chance to ask people about their own work. Be inquisitive. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e not pushing your agenda,鈥?says Jewell. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e a sponge for data.鈥?
It can be helpful to ask a fellow partygoer what鈥檚 going on inside her company. Example: at a luncheon, Jewell met a woman who works for a state agency. Jewell inquired about what was new in the training realm, and the woman said her division was focusing on leadership. Since Jewell does leadership training herself, she realized she鈥檇 found a great lead, and she arranged to follow up with a phone call the next week. The connection resulted in a contract for Jewell to provide 28 days of leadership training for the state agency.
In addition to parties thrown by family and friends, there are always plenty of festivities hosted by professional associations. If you can cadge an invite to the office [url=http://a1corp.in/jerseys/NFL_Jerseys_for_men.html]NFL Jerseys for men[/url] party of the company where you want to work, you might get an inside scoop.
鈥淭he bottom line is that the best job leads come from other professionals,鈥?Jewell points out. 鈥淭hey are your entry point to the secret job market, which is only available through contact with people.鈥?Out of the 150 people Jewell coached last year, she says, 125 got their jobs via information they found through family, friends or business associates. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 where the leads are,鈥?she says, 鈥渋n people鈥檚 heads.鈥?
Most job-seekers think that it鈥檚 fruitless to call a hiring manager on Dec. 22. But Jewell says that鈥檚 wrong. 鈥淢any managers have a decreased work schedule during the holidays,鈥?she points out. If they鈥檙e not away, they鈥檙e more likely to engage with you when you [url=http://www.a2zbahrain.com/softwaress.html]Wholesale Jerseys[/url] call.
Jewell has some more holiday job-seeking advice that may seem a tad Pollyannaish [url=http://www.a2zbahrain.com/softwaress.html]Wholesale NFL Jerseys[/url] to the cynical among us. 鈥淭he holiday time is a great time to count your blessings,鈥?she says. 鈥淵ou may be unemployed, but you still have a home to live in and a family that loves you.鈥?She points out that hiring managers are more receptive to job-seekers who express confidence and an optimistic frame of mind. If you can use the holidays to renew your appreciation of all that is good in your life, that can help you pursue your search with an attitude that鈥檚 most likely to get results.
This is an update of a piece that ran previously.

Science And GMOs Are Not The Bad Guys Here_0


Blogger Beth Hoffman, who is like me a Forbes contributor, tells us in a against genetically modified (GM) foods that
journalists on both sides of the argument seem to have forgotten there are many ways aside from 鈥?science鈥?to describe the world around us, and that there are other highly effective tools out there to solve hunger and malnutrition besides genetic engineering.
In writing about [url=http://www.a2zbahrain.com/softwaress.html]Wholesale NFL Jerseys[/url] on GM Golden Rice, Hoffman goes on to say that science has a credibility problem and cites the usual suspects, including DDT and tobacco, as examples.
These sweeping indictments of both science and journalism seem to demand counterpoint, especially if, like me, you鈥檙e a member of both groups. Luckily, the counterpoint is the same for either.
Science is a way of understanding and describing the world, yes. In fact, regardless of any other ways used to characterize or view the world, because science encompasses all the natural, physical processes that form it, anything else must necessarily come back to 鈥?science. Philosophy, culture, humanities 鈥?when you trace what drives any of these fields to their origins, you will find yourself standing at the feet of science.
Science in scare quotes isn鈥檛 just one way of describing the world around us. It is the ultimate way to understand it, and it gives us the information we need to change it for the better.
That said, other ways of viewing our world clearly carry greater weight for people than science or evidence does. If evidence and data were the only factors in human decision-making, the epic debates humans engage in about whether vaccines eradicated smallpox or whether global climate change is real wouldn鈥檛 exist. Even though science is the ultimate lens for truly understanding what underlies our entire existence, we obviously use other, frequently more myopic lenses available to us.
And that leads me to the faults of science. Humans do science, and because we bring our own [url=http://www.a2zbahrain.com/softwaress.html]Wholesale Jerseys[/url] personalized lenses and biases to whatever we do, science will involve error. But the wonderful thing about science is that it鈥檚 a self-correcting process that over time, disciplines itself. How did we discover the real effects of tobacco or DDT that ultimately were revealed? Science made those revelations, and science provided the data everyone needed to know the truth.
If that weren鈥檛 enough, we鈥檝e obviously all benefited from the practices of science in more ways than any of us could ever calculate. I鈥檓 alive, here, typing on a laptop, posting via wifi for people from all over the world to read thanks to all kinds of scientific work, covering everything from computer sciences to engineering to medical sciences to infectious disease research to materials science and more. I鈥檇 hazard that Hoffman owes the same debt to science in ways far too numerous to list.
But let鈥檚 come full circle here and accept that other lenses are relevant and that science doesn鈥檛 need to answer all the problems related to feeding our exploding population. What does Hoffman offer up instead? Her core solution is
Meanwhile, again and again, simple low-cost, low-tech solutions like 鈥渒itchen gardening,鈥?improved agricultural methods, and cover cropping have been found to give outstanding nutritional and economic results quickly to farmers. If people can grow a carrot or yam for far less expense and trouble [url=http://a1corp.in/jerseys/NFL_Jerseys_for_men.html]NFL women Jerseys[/url] than developing a strange looking rice (it is bright yellow 鈥?and we think getting people to eat brown rice has been hard!) 鈥?why aren鈥檛 carrots or yams the first stop for solving the problem?
Here鈥檚 where that whole issue of 鈥渄ifferent ways of describing the world鈥?gets tricky for Hoffman. Why? Because what she鈥檚 talking about is upending [url=http://a1corp.in/jerseys/NFL_Jerseys_for_men.html]NFL Jerseys for men[/url] entire cultural and dietary practices鈥搒uch as replacing rice for the millions of people who rely so heavily on it鈥揻or the sake of having them consume carrots and yams instead. So it seems that it鈥檚 OK to take someone鈥檚 lens on their world, their culture, and replace it entirely with something utterly and culturally different鈥揳nd in some cases, alien鈥搕o them as long as you鈥檙e not using science. Although, of course, science is what tells us whether or not her suggested solutions (also based in science) will work. For example, science could probably tell us how tenable 鈥渒itchen gardens鈥?are for people who live in resource-poor, high-population-density areas with little access to what鈥檚 needed for a kitchen garden.
She argues that orange rice will be offputting because getting people to eat brown rice is difficult. The reason for the latter is that brown rice is viewed in many parts of the world as a 鈥減oor person鈥檚 rice鈥?and white rice as a sort of mark of social status. It is also not as readily available or inexpensive as white rice because of low demand. Neither of these factors has anything to do with the success or not of Golden Rice, the very name of which implies otherwise. (It鈥檚 actually quite a lovely color, reminiscent of saffron rice.)
In her effort to offer up a sweeping indictment of science because of a 鈥渢rust issue,鈥?Hoffman has instead offered up a top-down approach, insisting that entire cultures replace their customary diet with foods that themselves have undergone considerable human-directed engineering. That kind of short-sighted viewpoint on the world could benefit from a broader lens.
鈥斺€斺€斺€斺€斺€斺€?
Some further reading: For a good look at the specifics of the Golden Rice issue, Andrew Revkin at the NYT DotEarth blog that includes relevent cultural insight and information, a large number of useful links, and comments supporting the Golden Rice initative from Big Names who historically are not know for their love of GMO. And , Forbes contributor David Kroll asks the question of whether or not scientists should actively seek to provide counterpoint to fearmongering around controversial issues like GMOs.
