Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

Who fault?


The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......



Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....

Gay History month stuff always leaves out the really important members of history who preferred the same sex. Alan Turing, Alexander, Hadrian, Cecil Rhodes, Francis Bacon, DaVinci, Isaac Newton, Solon. The people who appear in more general looks at the most influential in history, the changers of history. GHM focuses on too many mediocre unimportant 20th century characters.

If I remember correctly last year Alan Turing was recognized.

Wonder Man said...

yey for gay history

Q.U. : That's good (re. Turing).

Tales from the other side of town said...

I saw the list (Advocate), and there's no transgeder person.

I just wonder why.

Queers United said...
