High Frequency Trading is a scam? New York Times has recently posted something that if read carefully will make you see how HFT is a scam. Here it is:
It was July 15, and Intel, the computer chip giant, had reporting robust earnings the night before. Some investors, smelling opportunity, set out to buy shares in the semiconductor company Broadcom. (Their activities were described by an investor at a major Wall Street firm who spoke on the condition of anonymity to protect his job.) The slower traders faced a quandary: If they sought to buy a large number of shares at once, they would tip their hand and risk driving up Broadcom’s price. So, as is often the case on Wall Street, they divided their orders into dozens of small batches, hoping to cover their tracks. One second after the market opened, shares of Broadcom started changing hands at $26.20.
The slower traders began issuing buy orders. But rather than being shown to all potential sellers at the same time, some of those orders were most likely routed to a collection of high-frequency traders for just 30 milliseconds — 0.03 seconds — in what are known as flash orders. While markets are supposed to ensure transparency by showing orders to everyone simultaneously, a loophole in regulations allows marketplaces like Nasdaq to show traders some orders ahead of everyone else in exchange for a fee.
In less than half a second, high-frequency traders gained a valuable insight: the hunger for Broadcom was growing. Their computers began buying up Broadcom shares and then reselling them to the slower investors at higher prices. The overall price of Broadcom began to rise.
Soon, thousands of orders began flooding the markets as high-frequency software went into high gear. Automatic programs began issuing and canceling tiny orders within milliseconds to determine how much the slower traders were willing to pay. The high-frequency computers quickly determined that some investors’ upper limit was $26.40. The price shot to $26.39, and high-frequency programs began offering to sell hundreds of thousands of shares.
What does this bring traders into? Here's what Market Ticker has to say:
The disadvantage was not speed. The disadvantage was that the "algos" had engaged in something other than what their claimed purpose is in the marketplace - that is, instead of providing liquidity, they intentionally probed the market with tiny orders that were immediately canceled in a scheme to gain an illegal view into the other side's willingness to pay.

Does the Kimbo Slice vs Roy Nelson results a sign that it's the last of Kimbo's appearance in the octagon? why? It is because Roy "Big Country" Nelson sliced a big win over Kimbo Slice on Spike TV's "The Ultimate Fighter" on Wednesday. But it seems that that fight is not the last that you'd be seeing of Kimbo Slice because some TUF insiders have hinted that Kimbo's strong showing at his last fight makes him a very good replacement for a replacement for another fighter who couldn't proceed in the tournament. TUF president Dana White also hinted earlier this month that Kimbo will continue to fight whatever the Kimbo Slice vs Roy Nelson fight results into.

Okay, we all know that OK! magazine has the exclusive rights to publish the Khloe Kardashian Wedding pics. They reportedly paid $300,000 for that right. Of course they know that many people would be interested to see the wedding pics. I have here the cover of the OK! magazine issue that carries the Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom wedding. Do you notice something about that picture in the cover? Yes, it barely looks like a wedding picture, it looks like the pictorial of three celebrity sisters and not the wedding of one of them. The groom is obscured by the two sisters.

So You Think You Can Dance flash. Have you seen that contestant in So You Think You Can Dance who rolled on the floor in elation after she was informed by one of the judges, Little C, that she is in and that she is going to Vegas? Well that girl is getting a lot of attention not because she rolled on the floor but because when she rolled on the floor she exposed her private part (that thing down there). Of course it was not intentional, it could be an accident, but who knows, she also did it to be talked about, like what is happening now. Perez Hilton has posted a slow motion video to make it possible for anyone to see that the girl was barely wearing anything underneath her dress. I saw the video and I can say that "Yes, she exposed it," see for your self.

The Spanish Prime Minister's daughters are goths. 13-year-old Alba and 16-year-old Laura showed their rebellious phase in a picture taken when Barack and Michelle Obama visited Spain. The picture above shows how goth the fashion of the two kids are. There's nothing wrong with being goth and it is part of being a teenager to strive to be different. But I guess their parents are somewhat embarrassed with their kids' choice of fashion.

The 25-year-old bride and her basketball player boyfriend tied the knot at the home of music mogul Irving Azoff in Beverly Hills, saying their vows next to triple arches of white roses, People.com reports.
Kardashian carried a white nosegay of roses, stephanotis and lilies of the valley, while her bridesmaids wore lavender dresses and carried white roses.

Phil Mickelson superb putting and better-than-average driving to keep Tiger Woods from winning the PGA tournament. Mickelson made a 65 to win the Tour Championship Sunday. Tiger Woods settled for the second place and the FedEx Cup but of course he was eying the tournament win. Sorry but Mickelson got it.
How much is the Fedex Cup Payout? It's a whooping $10,000,000 for the four-tournament playoff. But this will go to the winner's deferred-compensation Tour retirement account. The winner will only have access to it when he reaches the age of 45.
Here is more information about the Fedex Cup payout Sports.espn.com :
This system will create a lot of cash for players down the road. It has erroneously been reported that the payout is in the form of an annuity. It is not an annuity. Sometime after the Tour Championship, the winner of the FedEx Cup will have $10 million placed in his tour-based retirement account. That's tax free. And the money can be invested in as many as 15 different options.
Players cannot touch the money, of course, until the age of 45 or when they stop playing the tour, whichever comes later. They must start taking payments by age 60. But if you do the math, you can see just how lucrative the plan can be. In Woods' case, if he wins the $10 million, draws an annual rate of return of 8 percent and cashes in at age 45, he would have more than $29 million sitting in his account.

Honda Civic's new commercial features a quarter-mile stretch of Avenue K renamed "Civic Musical Road" in Lancaster, California. A musical road is defined in Wikipedia this way:
A Musical road is a road, or part of a road, which when driven over causes a tactile vibration and audible rumbling transmitted through the wheels into the car body in the form of a musical tune.
Musical roads are known to exist in four countries: Denmark, Japan, South Korea, and the United States of America.
But residents in the place where Civic Musical Road is located say that the road is no longer like what it was, it has changed.

Typhoon Ondoy took the capital of the Philippines by surprise; it flooded most of Metro Manila, no one was spared, the rich and the poor alike felt the the power of nature, everyone was wet, some died, and the rest of the country felt as if they were slapped on the face with the cold reality of nature's wrath. Here are the sad images of Metro Manila after Typhoon Ondoy had its fill.
I and my family are fortunate enough to have not experienced the typhoon, all we got was the mild rain. We are living in a place where typhoons could not happen, South Cotabato. But we have relatives in Metro Manila, my brother is in Metro Manila, my husband's sister is also residing there. We are really worried because we could not communicate with them because phone service are not available in their area right now.

Jennifer Aniston Pregnant? No not really, she just want to be pregnant and plans of taking a break to get a baby bump soon. But she's 40 and will be 41 by February next year, is her chance of getting pregnant still good at her age? I don't know for I am no doctor but I guess she'll have a hard time getting what she wants.
A source says that Jen really wants it to happen:
“Jen’s made no secret of the fact she wants to get pregnant. Now, with nothing on her schedule for a while, she can relax and address the priorities that matter most — and motherhood is right at the top of her list.”
“She wants to have a baby soon. And has set her heart on getting pregnant before her 41st birthday.”
I hope she gets pregnant.

They were an odd couple, he was a pastor and she worked in the adult industry. Their relationship ended in murder. Pastor Brian Lee Randone ended up torturing and murdering his girlfriend Felicia Lee Tang. Felicia has starred in many Playboy films and in some mainstream movies like "Rush Hour 2" and "The Fast and The Furious."
Randone and Tang were living together for some months. It is not known yet what caused Randone to torture and kill Tang.
According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune:
"Brian Lee Randone, 45, holds a bachelor's degree from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and a master's of divinity degree from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, according to a brief 1996 biography on the Baylor University Web site."
Randone also appeared on the Fox reality show "The Sexiest Bachelor in America" in the year 2000.
This morning I have posted about the arrest of Randy Quaid and his wife Evie Quaid for burglary. Now here is the Randy Quaid mug shot.
Burglary may sound quite scary but no this is a special kind of burglary, the Quaids did not really break into a house to steal something, allegedly they just checked in some classy hotel, rack up an emormous bill then leave without paying. It turns out that the couple has allegedly been doing this for some time now and the detectives had been following their pattern and caught up on them now. But the celebrity couple sent two items to the celebrity gossip site TMZ.com as a way of voicing out their side:
Here's the image of the cashier's check:
1. A tongue-in-cheek, hand-written statement which says "this is all for PR" and that "I promise the state of California, Texas does not bother people over hamburgers ordered by room service, supposedly burglarized."
2. A copy of a cashier's check from the Quaids to the San Ysidro Ranch - the place where they allegedly skipped out on the bill - for $5,546.96.

Some people do things that can make you wonder why they do it. It seems quite crazy but some people do things. Look at Randy Quaid and his wife Evi Quaid,they got themselves arrested for burglary. But it's not the kind of burglary that you are probably imagining now. What's their modus operandi? They check in to expensive hotels and stiffing the places when they leave. They stay in high-class hotels and then leave without paying. That can be considered burglary. Randy Quaid and Wife Evi Quaid were arrested in west Texas and are now being investigated by detectives. Police believe the Quaids were scamming the San Ysidro Ranch because they have done it before - to the Bel Air Hotel in L.A., and many other classy hotels before. The detectives had actually been following them after a pattern of their behavior was established, they were just waiting for a perfect time to nail the two and now the time has come. The Quaids hasn't given their statement about the case yet. Their bail is set to $10,000 each.

Concerns have also been raised that the carton labeling for Junior TYLENOL® Meltaways 160mg may be confusing to some consumers in determining the proper dosage. This labeling says that each dose provides 160 mg of acetaminophen. Consumers should know that each tablet of Junior TYLENOL Meltaways contains 160 mg of acetaminophen. Caregivers should be guided by the dosage directions in the “Drug Facts” labeling on the carton for the correct number of individual tablets to be given based on the child’s age and weight.

Julia Grovenburg of Arkansas who is two and a half weeks pregnant was found to be pregnant again. The woman was in a regular ultrasound visit to her doctor when the doctor found another fetus inside her womb. The second fetus is not the twin of the first fetus because the two are not of the same age; they have a 2 1/2 week gap in age. This means that 2 1/2 weeks after Grovenburg got pregnant, she got empregnated again. This is a very rare case and there has been only 10 cases recorded like this one. The two babies will be born apart, the first one will be born on December 2009, the second one will come by January 2010. Can't believe it? But it's true, a pregnant woman pregnant again! This case of a woman who got pregnant twice in three weeks is an example of Superfetation, or conceiving while pregnant.

If you've missed watching Mackenzie Phillips on Oprah last night, here's a video of the juicy parts of the revelation. The video clip below is the part where Mackenzie told Oprah why after 10 years of doing it, she finally stopped having that kind of relationship with her father.
Oprah asked her: "How did you finally stopped?"
Mackenzie said: "I became pregnant and I was in a relationship with my son's father as well. He knew nothing. He is one of the dearest men, and one of the best parents to our son, he's a wonderful, wonderful man...but I came up pregnant and I didn't know who the father was. The implications, the reality of that. I had an abortion and I never let him touch me again"
A woman in Indonesia has given birth to a very large baby on Monday at a public hospital in North Sumatra province. The baby weighed 19 pounds. The 19 pound baby is 24.4 inches long and was born by caesarean section. The baby boy is in healthy condition despite the fact that the doctors who attended to the mother has some difficult time getting him out of his mother's womb.
"This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum's womb. His legs were so big," said Binsar Sitanggang, one of the attending doctors during the delivery of the baby.

It seems that scientists are on the way to developing a successful HIV vaccine. It's not 100 percent successful yet but it looks as if it's going to that direction. 16,000 persons in Thailand volunteered to be part of a trial of the new HIV or AIDS vaccine which is known as known as RV 144. A significant minority of the volunteers were protected by the vaccine from being infected with HIV. The scientists are happy with the results of the trial but were also quite confused.The vaccine — a combination of two genetically engineered vaccines, neither of which had worked before in humans — protected too few people to be declared an unqualified success. The scientists do not really know why the vaccine worked. If they figure it out it is possible to finally make a vaccine that would defeat HIV.
Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said:
“For more than 20 years now, vaccine trials have essentially been failures, now it’s like we were groping down an unlit path, and a door has been opened. We can start asking some very important questions.”
Here's part of the report about the new HIV vaccine from The New York Times:
Results of the trial of the vaccine, known as RV 144, were released at 2 a.m. Eastern time Thursday in Thailand by the partners that ran the trial, by far the largest of an AIDS vaccine: the United States Army, the Thai Ministry of Public Health, Dr. Fauci’s institute, and the patent-holders in the two parts of the vaccine, Sanofi-Pasteur and Global Solutions for Infectious Diseases.
Col. Jerome H. Kim, a physician who is manager of the army’s H.I.V. vaccine program, said half the 16,402 volunteers were given six doses of two vaccines in 2006 and half were given placebos. They then got regular tests for the AIDS virus for three years. Of those who got placebos, 74 became infected, while only 51 of those who got the vaccines did.
Although the difference was small, Dr. Kim said it was statistically significant and meant the vaccine was 31.2 percent effective.
On the second night of the FOX network premiere of Dancing with the Stars, Kelly Osbourne took to the stage with her professional partner Louis van Amstel. They performed a stunning Viennese Waltz. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne were there to support Kelly. The rock star hugged and kissed his daughter while his wife was teary eyed. Luke Worrall, Kelly's fiance, was also there to support her.
Kelly's performance was good enough for the judges and for the audience who gave her their applause. Their number is the “best Viennese waltz of the night” according to Len Goodman.
Here is the video of Kelly Osbourne's Dancing With The Stars performance:

Mackenzie Phillips had sex with her Dad the night before her wedding to Jeff Sessler. And it did not happen only once but she had a "long term incestuous relationship with her father." This is quite dark and shocking for those who do not know about Mackenzie and it's worth the time watching Oprah tonight.
"On the eve of my wedding, my father showed up, determined to stop it," writes Phillips, who was 19 and a heavy drug user at the time. "I had tons of pills, and Dad had tons of everything too. Eventually I passed out on Dad's bed."But she said that her dad was "full of love." Mackenzie also revealed that her father was the one who taught her how to shoot drugs. Ouch! Now, it's all in her book "High on Arrival," are you willing to buy it?
I woke up that night from a blackout to find myself having sex with my own father.
"Had this happened before? I didn't know. All I can say is it was the first time I was aware of it. For a moment I was in my body, in that horrible truth, and then I slid back into a blackout."
The Story of Stuff video is quite controversial because of its nature. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out below and leave your thoughts about it.

On Oprah tomorrow Mackenzie Phillips the actress who stared on "One Day at a Time" will reveal a "dark" family secret. Of course it is natural for people to give their attention to what Oprah has to show them tomorrow because secrets to be revealed are always appealing to the masses, especially if those family secrets come from stars. Mackenzie Phillips is the daughter of John Philips, the founder of the band The Mamas and the Papas. Those who know the Philips know that what Mackenzie Phillips will be revealing is not something about her drug addiction because it's public knowledge that she was heavily into drugs so it's no secret. It is also certainly not the thing with Mick Jagger, a family friend, who once told Mackenzie "I've been waiting for this since you were 10 years old."
The self-described "peace-loving Hindu vegetarian" half-brother of Mackenzie is obviously not happy with the Mackenzie Phillips family secret revelation on Oprah, he told New York Post : "My family is and always will be a decrepit bowl of dog urine compared to Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. That is how great Nityananda is. Worship Nityananda, not the Phillips family. Nityananda can protect you."
So what could be the "dark" family secret that will be revealed tomorrow by Mackenzie Philips? And why is she doing this? Of course we know that she wants some attention because she has written a book entitled "High on Arrival" which is her memoirs. She probably hopes to hook the public's attention on the book by revealing some family secrets on Oprah. Lets just hope that the secret she is going to reveal are really dark and explosive and stunning and not heard of before.
Update: Mackenzie Phillips has revealed the secret read it here in my new post.

Joe Dado or Joseph Dado, a freshman at Penn State and who was reported to be missing on Sunday was found dead. Dado attended a fraternity party and left the frat house at 3 am Sunday. He was never seen alive since then. His family has asked the assistance the police and the FBI on Monday morning and a search for him was made. The campus grounds was combed and by Monday evening news came out that Joe Dado's body was found by repairmen in a stairwell. Joe Dado apparently fell 15 feet to his death near a mechanical room outside Hosler building. The investigators did not say that there was foul play in Dado's death, he was probably too intoxicated to see that he was putting his life in danger. Frat parties are known to get frat members too intoxicated with alcohol. It is believed that Dado fell to his death because he was very drunk that night.

Today internet security threats are becoming more and more sophisticated, new viruses, malwares, trojans, and many other threats are created everyday. Computer protection is a must. But it should not just be a simple computer protection, it must be good computer protection. There are many antivirus software out there, some are effective whereas others are not good enough. A computer user must be wise enough to choose the best spyware removal tool out there. But how can one pick the best computer protection software among the many that are now flooding the market? First it must have a virus removal ability that could not be found in other security software. Yes, all security software has the ability to remove viruses and malware but not all could remove all viruses because not all security software can detect every kind of virus.
I am always on the lookout for new security software that may prove to be good, one of the new ones that I have came upon lately is ZSecurity Antivirus, a complete internet security protection for your computer that can keep viruses, malwares, trojan horses, spam, and many other threats away from your computer. You better check it out in their website and see for yourself.
What do you think is the best investment? This question is not that easy to answer because when it comes to investing there are many things that comes into mind. Some people think about real estate, others think about stocks, and others think about gold. I know that the third one may come as a surprise to most of you, but gold is probably the best investment that anyone can have. Gold is time-tested, its value has been proven time and again to stand the test of any economic depression. Because today the economy is not that strong yet it is best to invest in something that is not perishable like gold. You can purchase gold now and become two or three times richer in the near future. You can purchase bullion or you can choose to purchase gold coins. But when you decide to purchase gold for investment, be sure that you only purchase from a trusted name. Whether you are planning to purchase gold coin or gold bullion you should see to it that you get it from someone that is recommended by Gold Coins Gain, an Aurum advisors website. Before you buy gold it would benefit you to read up on the GoldCoinsGain.com website and learn about purchasing gold, gold coins, or gold bullion. Remember that gold is the best investment so it is good to start buying gold now.

Mayweather vs. Marquez Results: Floyd Mayweather Jr, who is heavier than Juan Manuel Marquez, prevailed. Yes, Mayweather won but it was not a big win because it was obvious when the two fighters step on the ring that there is a big difference in weight and in size. I admire Marquez for being able to stay on his feet for the whole 12 rounds of the fight. This means that Mayweather is not that good because if he's that good Marquez would have gone down to sleep in four or five rounds, but Mayweather did not make it. Here is a news article from GMANewsTV:
(Update) LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. returned to the ring with another emphatic victory.
Maybe next time he'll pick on somebody his own size.
Mayweather overpowered the smaller, lighter Juan Manuel Marquez for an unanimous decision Saturday night, maintaining his perfect record in his return from retirement and a 21-month ring absence.
Mayweather knocked down Marquez in the second round and then peppered him with countless damaging shots to remain unbeaten (40-0, 25 KOs).
"I can get better," Mayweather said. "He's tough as nails."
Marquez (50-5-1) was a 130-pounder just 18 months ago, but the Mexican champion moved up two weight classes to be Mayweather's hand-picked comeback opponent. At Friday's weigh-in, he was four pounds lighter than Mayweather, who paid a $600,000 penalty for missing the bout weight of 144 pounds.
The size disparity was painfully obvious from the opening bell, but Marquez stayed on his feet for 12 one-sided rounds.

Tomorrow, September 19, 2009, Floyd Mayweather Jr, the former (I repeat "former") pound-for-pound king will try to make a futile comeback to the ring. I am saying that it'll be a futile comeback for Mayweather because even if he gets lucky and beat Juan Manuel Marquez, the "Numero Uno"" Mexican puncher, it'd not be an assurance that he'd be able to get back his former title of "pound-for-pound king" because he'll have a very very slim chance of taking that title away from the present pound-for-pound king, Manny Pacquiao. If Mayweather wins tomorrow a match with the real pound-for-pound king manny Pacquiao is inevitable. Half of me wants Mayweather to kiss the canvas tomorrow while the other half wants him to win a little point over Marquez so that a Pacquiao vs Mayweather match would happen. I want to see Mayweather become pulp under Pacquiao's punches, i want his blabbermouth of a father silenced by a very pathetic loss of his junior. But i am digressing, the point in this post is the Mayweather vs Marquez live stream which i could not really give you as of now.

Delonte West is not a wild west cowboy, he's an NBA player, but he's got guns! He was arrested on Thursday at Prince George's County for carrying three guns. He was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle when he was stopped for cutting a police officer. He told the arresting officer that he has a gun. But it turned out the he had three guns, one on his waistband, another strapped to his leg, and the third was in a guitar case on his back. It is not clear where West was headed when he was arrested and why he was carrying guns.
Volkswagen L1 concept has been given the nickname "one-liter car" because it boasts of so much fuel efficiency; it can travel 100 kilometer with just a liter of fuel. The idea of a one-liter car started in Volkswagen in 2002. Now it seems that the company is really poised at taking this concept into the workroom.
Here are some photos of the Volkswagen L1 concept at the Frankfurt auto show, this is just a prototype that "is close to production" and "will be developed," according to Volkswagen:
