‘Child 44:’ Movie Review

‘Child 44:’ Movie Review

I’ve always been a fan of World World II films, the most recent (and one of my favorites) being The Imitation Game (2014). However, I can actually say that I am not a big fan of this movie. Then again, the setting doesn’t actually takes place in World War II, so I guess its okay. […]

This Chart Is Stupid…

This Chart Is Stupid…

I’ve talked about productivity before. I’ve also discussed wages. I’ve tried to avoid placing the two together until it was referenced. Considering that it is election season and the Democratic front is attempting to push the inequality issue, I figured that this chart would make an appearance sooner or later. Although its only one chart, […]

‘Unfriended:’ Movie Review

What’s more fun than watching yourself drag your mouse across the computer screen? Almost everything. Couple this with a interactive Skype chat with your peers playing a game where the stakes involve life or death, and your night suddenly becomes more interesting than cybersex (sort of). That seems to be the direction Levan Gabriadze and […]

‘Ex Machina:’ Movie Review

I normally don’t review Sci-Fi genres, mostly because the person reading requires one of two things: 1) an imagination and 2) a basic competency of science or scientific terms. Other than that, unless you are familiar with this, you probably won’t find much Sci-Fi enjoyable. One of the main reasons why I passed on reviewing […]

Enter Ben Bernanke, Exit Derek Kaufman

Before, I mentioned that I wasn’t sure how helpful Ben Bernanke would be in his new role at Citadel or whether his influence would change the way things are done there. Perhaps I already received my answer. Derek Kaufman, the head of global fixed income and a member of the Citadel’s portfolio committee, resigned two […]

Ben Bernanke To Join Citadel Investment Group

This man is truly a wonder. He’s been retired from his position as Chairman of the Federal Reserve for a little over a year. Naturally, like all of the other former Fed Chairman, aside from all of their speaking gigs, one would think they would simply fade away into obscurity. Instead, he joined Twitter and […]

Have Analyst Underestimated Apple Again?

Did you hear about the Apple Fanboy who tried to preorder an Apple Watch at 5 o’clock in the morning, only to be put on a three month waiting list? That’s exactly what happened to me. Apple decided to launch their preorders on Friday 12 am, pacific standard time, and in less than 2 hours, […]

‘It Follows:’ Movie Review

I’m not sure what has happened in the horror genre, but it seems seems Hollywood has a difficult time scaring people these days. Everything that has managed to work as been done already, and re-done, and recycled to the point of where everything is tired, predictable and boring. There wasn’t a single decent horror film […]

Greece Could Default As Early As Next Week

Greece Could Default As Early As Next Week

As much as Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis would love to reassure everyone that there is no possible way that Greece could run out of funds, recent events and economic evidence suggest otherwise. Tax revenues for the nation this year are more than €1 billion short of the target Greece banks need for liquidity. Depositor […]
