MEXICO CITY, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Protesters set fire to the door of the Mexican presidential palace this weekend after evidence surfaced that 43 students were killed by a Mexican gang, with police cooperation.
Police attacked the students on Sept. 26 in Iguala, and the students were not seen again. A video from the Mexican Attorney General's office, obtained by the Fusion network, shows confessions of three members of the Guerreros Unidos gang, who say they received the students from the police, killed them and burned them in a dump.
It has been alleged that the mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca, is aligned with the gang, and he and his wife have been arrested. Parents of the missing students are waiting on DNA evidence to confirm the statements made in the video.
Protests over the incident had been relatively peaceful until they people began tearing down fences around the presidential palace and burning the door with Molotov cocktails. Riot police responded aggressively to the scene.
I am having issues with the main forums page. even after I read a new post and then go back to the main forums page it says there is a new post even when there isn't. Not refreshing I guess is what I'm trying to say.
Also DOTS... brings me to the first post every time.
These issues happen in IE, Safari and Chrome so I'm sure it's not my browser.
Not complaining, just observations. Thanks for all your hard work.
I see the exact same behavior.
Yes, the DOTS forum is really broken. No matter what I click, post #1 always appears. I always have to go to the bottom of the page to get to the last page.
" From 2008 to 2011 the gold price tripled from $650 to $1,900. Over the last three years the bullion banks and Governments have tried to break the backwardation and normalize the economy by dumping huge amounts of physical gold and “paper gold” at the gold spot price. But they have failed, because although they have reduced the gold price from $1,900 back down to $1,200, they have not been able to create a lasting contango. Instead, the gold buyers and hoarders have dug in, bought everything and demanded more – which has only strengthened the backwardation.
Sooner or later, the bullion banks and Governments will run out of ammunition and they will be forced to step back and allow the market to do its thing. Which is to repeat of the 1970s – the worst of all economic outcomes – stagflation. Unfortunately, this is the consequence of all the money printing and while it can be delayed – it cannot be stopped. The gold price will eventually peak in the tens of thousands of dollars and unless the bullion banks unwind their short positions, they will either default or go bankrupt.
But the most serious outcome is Fekete’s vision of a “permanent backwardation” whence, unlike the 1970’s, the gold backwardation can NEVER be broken. In this case, the gold price tends towards the infinite, taking inflation with it. The gold lease rate GLR is also driven to infinity (by the market seeking gold) and LIBOR is dragged up with it under the relationship LIBOR = GLR – GOFO. But in this case there is no end - confidence in dollars is completely lost and gold goes into deep hiding (bid no offer). Under these circumstances we get a hyper-inflation and a total collapse of the fiat money system. Just like the Weimar Republic and Zimbabwe. Gold will then have (once again) reasserted its supremacy.
The world will then be divided between those who have gold and those who do not. War and chaos will reign until the poor countries accept the terms of the rich countries under a new world order using gold as currency. Somewhat ironically, this scenario was originally dictated in the US Constitution - but as Winston Churchill famously said “you can rely on Americans to do the right thing AFTER they have exhausted all other possibilities”. And so I think history will judge the period from 1971 (Nixon) to 2014 (?) as the era of American economic insanity."
Maybe this is what Deagel is basing its decimation of U.S. population on.
It's not broken... we just run caching on the forum summary pages. This ensures the forum experience provides a much higher level of performance, albeit at the sake of real-time updates. Therefore this means the data *may* not be up-to-date every time you click on it.
Sparactus, when you say "sticky on the homepage," do you mean on the main landing page of the forums?
Exellent ! The mosh pit of TF Metals is finally here at the back of the bus, the unwashed masses screaming for....well soap I guess :)
Bank of England halves forecast of wage growth
Posted in 'Banking' by George Coburn
19 August 2014
Mark Carney, the Bank of England’s Governor, has confirmed that despite the recent drop in unemployment figures and an increase in hours being worked the growth in people’s pay has been weak. Average salaries are now expected to rise by 1.25% this year.
This figure has been calculated using the latest official figures which show, when excluding bonuses, average wages increased by 0.6% and this represents the lowest growth in 2001 when records began.
The Bank of England uses the term ‘spare capacity’ to represent the underperformance of the UK economy resulting from poor business investment in employing staff, technology or machinery.
Luv it! Good one, Hammer!
