No sign of relief for Facebook shares after Zuckerberg apology

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - Shares of Facebook Inc fell 3 percent in premarket trading on Thursday as an apology from Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg did little to quell Wall Street nerves about how much a row over user data privacy will cost the company.

AccuWeather: Heavy Snow, Gusty Winds Today

Source: WPVI

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --
A WINTER STORM WARNING has been issued for our entire area until 2 a.m. Thursday.


SNOWFALL/COASTAL ISSUES: We're looking at the possibility of about 8-12" in much of SE Pennsylvania, northern Delaware and areas of South Jersey near the NJ Turnpike. 4-8" is expected in areas closer to Allentown and Reading, as well as the heart of South Jersey closer to the coast. The immediate coast receives only about 2-4" of snow and ice. COASTAL FLOODING is also likely at times of high tide, both in the morning and evening with moderate flooding possible. In Atlantic City, high tide is 10:51am and 11:13pm. Beach erosion is also possible today and tonight.

Poisoned Spy Is a Warning to the West, Courtesy of Putin

http://observer.com/2018/03/poisoning-of-russian-spy-sergei-skripal-reeks-of-putins-dirty-work/

The Poyntz case may not be of merely historical interest in Washington these days. We are in the unprecedented situation where the president and his retinue are under special counsel investigation for their secret ties to the Kremlin. Given Putinís predilections, Americans who cooperate with Robert Mueller and his prosecutors, sharing information that will harm Team Trump, may be putting themselves at risk of Russian retribution.

Last week, Rick Gates, the Trump campaign official who agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation and spill the beans about Russia-related happenings in 2016, cancelled a spring trip to Boston in response to online threats of violence against him and his family. While this was most likely just noxious trolling of the sort thatís depressingly common regarding anything Russian, Gates made the right decision. In Cold War 2.0, the old Chekist rulebook has been thrown out. Anyone whoís deemed a threat by Putin may be at risk of getting lethal attention.

Do you actually realize how fundamental this change is?

People without guns are marching to state that they too, as disarmed people going about their
lives, also have rights.

For the longest while that has not been the case. Those without arms were afraid to protest, went
silently through the months, hoping nothing untoward happened.

Living in fear is no freedom. It is often not even civil. It is no way to experience life in the fullest.

Andrew Nagorski, Author, "Hitlerland"

Wide ranging interview of a former Newsweek journalist who has many a tale to tell about people and journalists who visited Germany pre-war. He's met many of the famous journalists of the period. He says people didn't take Hitler seriously, thought him a lightweight, or that he was a "marvelous demagogue". Have we heard this recently? And this interview is from 2012 so they had no idea Donald Trump would be anywhere near the presidency.



Did you know Richard C. Hottelet, the famed CBS journalist, was held by the Third Reich in 1941? I sure didn't.

Neighbors from Hell

Noisy rock music 3 nights a week, target practice on many weekends, afraid to complain, townships don't enforce zoning anyway.

Music's been going on a year, other issues 5-10

All I want to do is move, but how do you sell a property with neighbors like these?

Surely I'm not the only one with neighbors from hell

Hey Look! On CNBC, tomorrow is March already!!!

After a rough February, stocks are entering what are typically two of the best months of the year for the market.

The S&P 500 closed out the final day of February with a 1.3 percent loss to 2,744. For the month of February, it was down about 2.8 percent, relatively modest after the gut-wrenching decline of 10 percent from January's highs in the first nine days of the month. Since Feb. 9, the S&P has sprang back 8.4 percent.

"March is actually a pretty good month. February on average is the third worst performing month for the S&P 500 going back to 1945," said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA.
