On WWE and "Wrestlemania Day"

Figured I’ll just blog about this before I sleep. People who know me well probably know I’m an almost-diehard fan of the WWE. Yes, I absolutely agree, watching the WWE may not be the most glamorous thing to do; it’s a violent (and sometimes real violent, if you see what people shriek at nowadays) version […]

A lot of economics in online media this week, understandably..

I think these reports should generally be understandable for the college student (like me). On regulation http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/27/us/politics/27cnd-dems.html?_r=1&nl=pol&emc=pola1&oref=sloginhttp://www.economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=10926446&fsrc=nwlhttp://www.economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=10924188 On government intervention Russia and oil: http://www.economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=10925679&fsrc=nwl Argentina and taxes, notably on farming: http://www.economist.com/displaystory.cfm?story_id=10925670&fsrc=nwl

As one Singaporean put it, “As a regular public transport commuter, thousands of other Singaporeans and I hear and see daily, […]

PM/MM’s Response

There’s reason to believe that the PM (http://sg.news.yahoo.com/ap/20080309/tap-as-gen-singapore-terror-suspect-832f4ab.html) and MM’s responses were crafted specifically in response to the concerns iterated in the alternative media sources, though I probably don’t have the time to bring this further (if anything, I’m bored of reading about this). And the missing “independent” from “inquiry” in the Channel 5 News […]

Transparency
