The Mismanagement of Berkshire Hathaway

Berkshire Hathaway, based in Omaha, Nebraska, is a multinational holding company. It is under the expert leadership and guidance of Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Warren Buffet. Buffet is a financial icon who, by 1996, managed to amass a $30 billion investment portfolio for his company. He owns various businesses which include GEICO, Fruit of the Loom, and Dairy Queen, It also has minority holdings in the Heinz Kraft Company, American Express, Wells Fargo and Coca Cola.

On March 9, 2018 Porter Stansberry of Stansberry Research wrote an article called “The Massive, Hidden Problem at Berkshire Hathaway.” In this article, he made a few controversial accusations against Warren Buffet and his management of his company. He states that Berkshire Hathaway has made a series of investments that are “disastrous” and that this information is being hidden away from the company’s shareholders. He is deeply concerned that the company is being “badly mismanaged (”

It is Porter’s opinion that Warren Buffet took a dramatic departure from investing in and buying companies that were efficient with their capital and instead moved into the banking sector, see also related articles of Stansberry Research. Buffet invested more than $20 million dollars buying the stock of four banks. These financial institutions include Bank of America, Bank of New York, Wells Fargo, and U.S. Bancorp. These companies have produced marginal returns at best.

Porter also mentions that Buffet has invested a major amount of capital into utility companies that have been highly regulated since 2003. These two companies, Berkshire Hathaway Energy and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad will probably be two investments that will require more capital to operate in the future. Based on Stansberry Research, Porter explains that 44% of Berkshire Hathaway’s after tax earnings was invested into these two utilizes last year. He questions this financial strategy and predicts that Berkshire Hathaway’s capital stream will dwindle in the near future. He stresses that these utilities will soon start generating serious debt for Berkshire Hathaway.

Stephen Murray led CCMP Capital from its birth to multi billion dollar success

Stephen Murray was a famous name on Wall Street before his untimely death in March 2015 at the age of 52. Murray was a well known figure for the time he spent leading CCMP Capital after it was created from the buyout business of JP Morgan and continued to be successful with Murray leading the company through two multi billion dollar deals. Despite the success Murray had in the business world he was also a popular philanthropist who was willing to work with many different charitable groups to assist others in need and areas of interest for the CCMP Capital CEO.

Murray’s business career began when he joined the training program at Chemical Venture Partners and took in a number of major companies before Stephen Murray led CCMP Capital as it became a company on its own after a number of ownership changes. The Boston College and Columbia Business School graduate saw his working career begin in the 1980s and remain constant as a leader of the JP Morgan buyout business for many years until the birth of CCMP Capital. The company was guided to success by Murray, a success that includes a deal worth more than $3 billion completed towards the end of 2014 that secured the success of the company in the eyes of the financial industry.

CCMP Capital was not the only love of the life of the father of four, he was also well known for the many philanthropic works he completed throughout his life. Murray had remained active throughout his life in the support of a number of causes, including remaning a member of the board of trustees for his alma mater Boston College. Stephen Murray also made sure he gave something back to the community he lived in by working with the Make A Wish Foundation and local food banks throughout the New York City area.

Tony Geary Leaves Luke Spencer Behind

Anthony Geary is one of the most beloved actors in daytime television history. His role as Luke Spencer on General Hospital was only supposed to last for a few weeks. It turned into a job that would last decades when he became a fan favorite. Although Geary left the show several times, vowing never to return, he could never stay away from the fictional town of Port Charles. Unfortunately for fans, Geary has taped what is likely his truly last scene as Luke.

Geary also played the role of Luke’s look-a-like cousin, Bill Eckert, for a short time. Fans did not like that character and he was killed off in order to make room for Luke’s return. In recent months, Geary pulled off playing a dual role as the evil Luke and the nice Luke. Fans of Handy called him Fluke, but they did not care for the new Luke. It was finally revealed that he went over the edge because of a very dark past that had never been explored on the show before. It not only helped wrap up the character, but showed off Geary’s amazing acting talent as well.

The character of Luke Spencer will remain in the hearts of fans forever, but Tony Geary is comfortably retired from the show and enjoying his home in Amsterdam. He hopes to add new roles to his acting career there that will challenge him without the ghost of Luke Spencer following him. So long, Tony Geary. Fans wish you well on the next chapter of your life.

These Aren’t the Shoes You’re Looking For

High heels have had a dubious reputation among women for a long time. While they certainly have plenty of desirable traits, including increasing a woman’s height and giving her killer leg muscles, they’re also known for being difficult to wear and even causing problems in the feet and ankles over time. It’s always been a case of “buyer beware” when heels are mentioned.

Finally, however, scientists have decided to put it to the test and see just what the real long-term effects of wearing heels might be. The study followed the progress of women who were attending college for flight attendant training. These future flyers were required to wear heels to class each day in case they were hired by a Korean airline that would require them to wear heels on the job. For four years, the students wore heels daily, making it easy to track the effects on their joints over time.

At first, researchers were surprisingly pleased by what they found. Sophomores and juniors, who had only been wearing heels for a couple of years, seemed to have increased muscle strength in certain areas on the outside of the joint, suggesting that their bodies were adapting to the change in footwear stated Mr Amazing Loan. By the time they were seniors, however, the students experienced a significant decrease in balance and weakening of muscles around the foot and ankle.

Does that mean that heel-wearing ladies should set aside their footwear forever? Of course not, insist the scientists. Instead, ladies who wear heels regularly should perform appropriate stretching exercises, including heel raises and heel drops, to keep the muscles around the feet and ankles equally strong. The study also recommends removing heeled shoes whenever possible, including under the desk during the work day.

The House Passed A Stripped Down Legislation That Will Fast Track Obama’s Pacific Trade Agreement

The Bill Was Defeated The First Time It Was Heard But A Stripped Down Version Is Now Ready For Senate Approval

Democrats say the new Pacific Rim Trade Agreement looks too much like the North American Trade Agreement.(NAFTA) That agreement cost American workers more than 5 million jobs. Democrats usually back their president, but this agreement has caused some major issues within the Democratic Party. The Democratic leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi, voted against fast tracking the measure, and Hillary Clinton said Pelosi knows more about the agreement than Obama. That didn’t make Obama happy, but it won’t be the last Clinton comment that will ruffle his sensitive feathers.

The agreement is called TPP. TPP will lower trade barriers and put labor protection boundaries in place. Some lawmakers believe the Asian countries are getting a better deal, but US exporters like Ford, Cisco, IBM, Caterpillar, and others think it will help their business in that part of the world.

Japan and Canada want the agreement, but opponents say the 20-year-old NAFTA deal left a bad taste in the mouths of American workers like Sergio Cortes, and this deal will do the same thing.

“X-Files” Television Series to Return

There will soon be a return of the popular 1990’s “X-Files” television show. So far, at least six episodes are planned and the shows will again feature original co-stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. The shows are currently being filmed in Vancouver.

Some pictures have been released on the Internet by the producers of the show of Duchovny and Anderson working together again. Duchovny is sporting a stubble of beard and Anderson looks a bit older, but other than that the two look much the same as they did in the original show.

It will be interesting to see if this new reboot of the show will work as many fans like Kevin Seawright are excited to see. The show set a high bar for itself during its initial years, and fans aren’t going to accept anything less than great episodes. Personally, I was surprised to see this happen since both Anderson and Duchovny have been busy with other projects. I guess when there is enough demand for a show to return, it will happen.

In my opinion, the X-Files was a great show during its first few years. Then, it got too hard to follow. Because of the show’s success, I think that its creators were able to become more self-indulgent and create shows that only made sense to hard-core fans who had watched every preceding episode. That’s not good. A television show should be accessible to anyone, in my opinion.

MERS Cases Increase, 64 Quarantined

So far, 77 people have been in contact with the first man who was diagnoses with MERS. 64 of them are under quarantine and the rest are remaining in self-imposed isolation. Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a respiratory tract infection that effects all other vital organs of the body. MERS is highly contagious and the current outbreak in China has been traced back to one man who returned home from Saudi Arabia after visiting his father who was known to have MERS. The man traveled back home to Huizhou by bus, despite the doctor’s warnings to avodi public places and public transit, and exposed all his fellow bus passengers to the MERS virus.

Those under quarantine have been sent to a camp in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Two female bus passengers have refused to go to the camp and be under indefinite quarantine. Steve Murray can understand their reasoning.
Reported earlier today was a confirmed death due to MERS, the third one so far. Since the first official case of MERS in 2012, 442 have died from the respiratory illness. Jim Dondero feels like that is pretty crazy. Appropriate action is being taken to stop the spread of MERS and Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon encouraged his people not to be too fearful of the contagious disease.

The Up Hill Battle People Seeking Student Loan Forgiveness Face from the DOE and Its Contractors

According to federal law passed in 1993, people taken advantage of by education institutions may have their student loans forgiven under certain conditions. Besides the obvious factors such as death, or permanent disability, debt forgiveness is possible in cases where the institution misled students as to their accreditation and graduate job opportunities. One such person seeking relief is Yvette Colon of New York City. Colon, who worked for years in medical billing, was seeking to become a cardiac sonographer. She enrolled in the Manhattan campus of Sanford-Brown Institute over the period of 2006 to 2008. The price of tuition was daunting, but the school carried excellent accreditation and a good-paying job awaited her upon completion of her certificate.

In a manner of speaking, Colon was “had bad”. She racked up $51,000 in student loans via both private and federal loans, and that was a bit overwhelming for Brad Reifler to see. Sadly, Sanford-Brown Institute did not have the type of accreditation they touted having. Nor did Colon find the employment opportunities which she was led to believe existed. Since that time, she has returned to medical billing, but finds it difficult to pay her student loans. At this time, she has to take distributions from her pension in order to service the student loan debt. However, her application for relief was denied by Navient, a major company servicing Sallie Mae student loans. In addition, not only are people being denied claims by student loan contractors approved by the Department of Education (DOE), the DOE’s department handling debt forgiveness also seems to be indifferent as well.

Antonio Banderas Spotted With New Girlfriend

Antonio Banderas is one of the most successful actors of the modern era. He has starred in several films such as, ‘Desperado,’ ‘Shrek,’ and ‘Assassins.’ Antonio is also one of the most handsome men in Hollywood, and his perfect features have earned him a lot of attention from women according to a magazine article in GQ from Ray Lane. Banderas is 54-years old, but that does not stop him from dating much younger women.

Antonio Banderas is currently in a relationship with 34-year old fashion student Nicole Kimpel. Antonio Banderas was married to Melanie Griffith for several years, but the couple split a year and a half ago. It seems that Antonio Banderas moved on rather quickly, and he was recently spotted with Nicole in London. Antonio was treating his new girlfriend to a day of shopping and feasting. The couple went to the finest shops and restaurants that London had to offer.

Many people felt that Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith we’re going to stay together forever, but unfortunately things did not end up like that. Melanie Griffith was recently seen walking around in a sleeveless shirt. Melanie’s tattoo of Antonio has been fading, and this leads people to believe that she is currently getting the ink removed. However, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith will always be remembered by the fans and paparazzi. For more information on this story, visit DailyMail.
