Live at Shrine in Harlem on December 5, 2007 for the fundraiser for Darfur. These are two songs I wrote a while back strung together with paraspace, ether, noise or however you want to conceptualize with me. Can you figure out what they are about?

The current dogma is that anthropogenic Global Warming is a fact, I disagree. The crusade led by Gore and his cronies is all about furthering their own careers and political agendas. Whats to gain? Power, controlling your 'carbon footprint', means controlling you, absolutely. Their fundamental assumption is that Earth's climate was stable and was doing just fine before the Industrial Revolution started interfering with climate's 'natural' state. But it is plain to see that both warming and cooling occurred numerous times before the Industrial Revolution. Similarly, all the dire predictions of global-warming consequences - sea-level rise, for example - have happened in the past. In fact, the greatest warming period was when dinosaurs walked the land (70-130 million years ago). There was then five to 10 times as much CO2 in the atmosphere as there is today, and the average temperature was 4-11 degrees Celsius warmer. There has never been a stable climate system. For another, the level of CO2 in our atmosphere is near its historic low. There is absolutely no concrete evidence to support the claim that our efforts are having any effect whatsoever. Their claims tap neatly into our own arrogance and hubris as a race that we could make an impact. The point I tried to make with this video to do your own research, find your own conclusions and don't be afraid to be a 'heretic' against this new religion.

We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States will emerge stronger than before. That was the message sent by President Obama during his address to the joint session of congress on Tuesday night. Like a doctor talking to the family of an obese patient who has just undergone quadruple bypass surgery, President Obama had to walk the tightrope of instilling a sense of urgency and a sense of optimism to the American people. For, just like our hypothetical heart patient, America as we know must undergo a metamorphosis or all of America’s yesterdays will have “lighted fools the way to dusty death.” Metamorphosis- change- is what we bought when we elected Obama- and the time has come- as he said- to act boldly and wisely. Among the metaphors that Obama used to illustrate the change that lie ahead what struck me most was his mention of the town Greensburg, Kansas, a town that was completely destroyed by a tornado, but is being rebuilt by its residents as a global example of how clean energy can power an entire community how it can bring jobs and businesses to a place where piles of bricks and rubble once lay. "The tragedy was terrible," said one of the men who helped them rebuild." But the folks here know that it also provided an incredible opportunity." From the rubble of our economic crisis, what how do we rebuild? By stimulating lending- Obama says- giving more money to banks- but telling us it is really to benefit main street- because we must grow- Obama says. Growth is good. Bigger is better. Right. America must continue biggering and biggering. So Joe the bus driver and Jane the teacher can buy more things. Cuz we need things. What is the real cost of our addiction to more things? Consider our foreign policy…. From the rubble of our health care crisis, how do we rebuild? By enacting reform that will give more public dollars to health care and insurance companies and moving towards the day when all citizens are required to purchase healthcare? OR Do we get rid of insurance companies- except for those select few rich who choose to purchase supplemental insurance- and join the rest of the industrialized world and give public dollars to free health care for all? From the rubble of our criminally insane and murderous foreign policy, how do we rebuild? Do we pay reparations to the Iraqi people, acknowledge in any way that this unnecessary and immoral war has cost the lives of somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 million innocent civilians not to mention gutted the infrastructure of a country that posed no threat to its neighbors or to America? Or do we, in the face of international scorn say boldly- as President Obama did- because living our values doesn’t make us weaker, it makes us safer and it makes us stronger- And continue a foreign policy of pre-emption and preventative war in places like Afghanistan and Pakistan? America is not yet like the town of Greensburg, Kansas, the town that was completely destroyed by a tornado. But that tornado is coming. And President Obama may be bold- by the perverse standards that exist inside the beltway- but like our doctor talking to the family of an obese patient who has just undergone quadruple bypass surgery he must be aware that underneath his hubris, that the bedside manner he displayed in his address to congress on Tuesday night was full of sound and fury, yet signified nothing. ########## Dennis Trainor, Jr is a regular video contributor to TheUptake****.

This is the story of how one man, one bank and one country experienced world economic history. Armann Thorvaldsson, a former CEO at Icelands Kaupthing Bank in the UK, tells the story of how he witnessed the bank grow from a small brokerage house to a £6 billion international bank. As the bank expanded, Thorvaldsson represented the money behind such household names as Iceland, easyJet, and Karen Millen. He travelled from Reykjavik to London, to Monte Carlo, and partied on yachts with celebrities. And then it all came crashing to a halt. As the financial crisis engulfed the world, even the most frantic efforts to save the bank were fruitless. Iceland was slammed with antiterrorist laws in a major diplomatic incident, and the countrys economy was in tatters. Frozen Assets is a powerful story about big ambitions, big money and hubris.

Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer (In Theaters: November 5th, 2010) This documentary feature takes an in-depth look at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Nicknamed "The Sheriff of Wall Street," when he was NY's Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America's largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as Governor, with the largest margin in the state's history, many believed Spitzer was on his way to becoming the nation's first Jewish President. Then, shockingly, Spitzer's meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when the New York Times revealed that Spitzer - the paragon of rectitude - had been caught seeing prostitutes. As his powerful enemies gloated, his supporters questioned the timing of it all: as the Sheriff fell, so did the financial markets, in a cataclysm that threatened to unravel the global economy. With unique access to the escort world as well as friends, colleagues and enemies of the ex-Governor (many of whom have come forward for the first time) the film explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power.

BY NOE GANDILLOT ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO It’s the longest prison term for insider trading in U.S. history. Hedge fund billionaire Raj Rajaratnam has been sentenced to 11 years behind bars. CNBC reports: “Galleon hedge fund founder Raj Rajaratnam sentenced to eleven year in federal prison in connection with insider trading, his conviction last may also find 10 million dollars. This is a record insider trading sentence.” The trader allegedly made profits or avoid losses of $72 million by using a corrupt network of tipsters - among them former executives of McKinsey & Company, Intel or I.B.M. Prosecutors called Mr. Rajaratnam “the modern face of illegal insider trading.” Although an all-time high, the 11-year sentence is considerably less than the 24 years prosecutors had sought. MSNBC reports, the judges took the 54 year-old man’s poor health condition into account. "Raj Rajaratman has advanced diabetes. He’s in imminent need of a kidney transplant and as a result, the judge said it is unclear whether the fed prison system will been able to care for him adequately, and that was one of the thing that weighed against a heavier sentence.” Rajaratnam’s defense team is appealing. Nevertheless, The Economist says the judge’s historic sentence is meant to send a clear message to capital markets. “Mr Rajaratnam’s demise is a boon for regulators’ campaign to root out market abuse and prove the markets are welcoming of ordinary investors. At one point Galleon was one of the largest hedge funds in the world. But now it is an example of Wall Street’s misguided hubris and greed. Mr Rajaratnam’s crimes, the judge said, ‘reflect the virus in our business culture that needs to be eradicated.’” The Economist also notes Mr Rajaratnam’s sentencing highlights a “central issue for insider trading: how you calculate the victims.” So, is Rajaratnam’s sentence too long, too short or just about right? In an interview with Bloomberg, formal federal prosecutor Douglas Burns says there is no easy answer to that question. “You could have academic seminars all-day long about : ‘should somebody who robs a bank with a gun, how should He be punished versus a guy who steals with a business suit and a calculator to buy an 18-million dollar yacht ?’ (...) There are different theories and ideologies about that.” And American society’s tolerance of offenses like insider trading have changed over the years. As The New York Times notes, Mr. Rajaratnam’s sentence continues a trend of ever-stiffer penalties against white-collar criminals. “Historically, judges showed leniency when penalizing corporate criminals because they were not seen as a threat to society... But gone, for the most part, are the days of slap-on-the-wrist sentences and ‘country club’ prisons where white-collar defendants would serve short stints in relatively comfortable quarters.” And Raj Rajaratnam might soon share his cell with another notorious white-collar convict. The insider trader’s defense team asked that he serve his prison term at the Butner Federal Correction Complex, whose most famous inmate right now -- is Bernie Madoff.

The $60 pricing model is broken in the retail space, and that's a scientific fact that can be proven with science. It's truly staggering, then, that publishers are attempting to apply that awful model to the digital space, where they can better afford alternative pricing tiers. Simply put, a digital game should not cost the same as its physical counterpart, and the hubris involved in such a decision is astounding.
