Manga fans can collect something new: a doctorate

"To earn this Ph.D., you need to hit the books — specifically, Japanese comic
books.

Japan's Kyoto Seika University said Tuesday it will launch the country's first
doctoral program in manga studies next year.

The private university in western Japan is well known for its manga and anime
programs and established a master's degree course in manga last year."

Cue the conspiracies: Australia UFO X-Files 'lost'

"Australia's military has lost its X-Files, detailing sightings of Unidentified Flying
Objects, or UFOs, across the country, a newspaper report said Tuesday.

After a two-month search in response to a newspaper Freedom of Information
(FOI) request, which forces government officials to release documents of public
interest, Australia's Department of Defense had been unable to locate the files,
the Sydney Morning Herald said."

Hopefully he can get it dismissed. Pennies are legal tender, whether the hospital likes it or not.

Depends...was he paying that way as a form of malice, or just because he had them (why would you have 2,500 pennies to carry around to pay a $25 bill?)

I think the main problem is the way he carried it out. He just dumped the whole lot of coins on the counter and floor and expect the staff to count them all. The coins are legal tender but its his behaviour that is in question here.

Good for him though. Now he has another opportunity to dump another sack of pennies when he pay his fine.

Unless he can prove that his intention was to simply pay the bill and not carry out a "revenge attack" on the hospital by dumping the bag of coins (i.e he placed the pennies down on the counter and the bag broke due to weight), it will be dismissed.

Otherwise, it is a count of harassment. Though it would be interesting to know the reason behind it.

EDIT : Shouldn't this dipshit go back to school instead and learn about "diluting the money supply"?

Bernanke takes his critics back to school

Quote:
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The people who blame the Federal Reserve for all of our problems are starting to really get under Ben Bernanke’s skin.

Bernanke devoted nearly half of his major address on the economic outlook to debunking the charge by his critics who say the Fed’s ultra-accommodative policies are responsible for high gas prices, high food prices and the falling dollar. Read more about Bernanke’s speech saying the economy will bounce back later this year.

It’s not the first time that the Fed chairman has fired back at critics of his unusual approach to monetary policy in an unusual time — those who say that ultralow interest rates and the massive expansion of the Fed’s balance sheet have fueled an epic bubble in assets, including commodities.

Essentially, Bernanke’s defense is that supply and demand explain virtually all of the increase in commodity prices since 2008. The simplest answer explains it best: The developing world is growing rapidly and using tremendous amounts of petroleum, metals and agricultural commodities, which is pushing prices higher temporarily because producers can’t keep up with demand.

You can feel Bernanke’s frustration boiling over, just as Peter Diamond did on Monday with that broadside against the know-nothings in the Senate who kept him off of the Fed’s board.

The condescension was dripping from Bernanke’s pen:

“When the price of any product moves sharply, the economist’s first instinct is to look for changes in the supply of or demand for that product,” he remarked. “Indeed, the recent increase in commodity prices appears largely to be the result of the same factors that drove commodity prices higher throughout much of the past decade: strong gains in global demand that have not been met with commensurate increases in supply.

“With the demand for oil rising rapidly, and the supply of crude stagnant, increases in oil prices are hardly a puzzle,” he said.

As for the decline in the dollar, Bernanke pointed out that recent weakness is merely reversing earlier strength in the dollar, created by the massive flight-to-quality flows during the darkest days of the 2008 panic. In any case, the dollar’s value is determined by many variables, including the pace of growth and the current account deficit.

The curt “class dismissed!” at the end of the speech was implied, not spoken. Read the full text of his Bernanke’s prepared remarks.

Or perhaps he could have ended it this way: “It’s economics, stupid!”
People are HOARDING supplies because USD is formerly used to transact for them. Now people lost confidence in the USD, people are buying them up and holding their supplies because USD is deemed to be worthless as a medium of trade. And now the central bank is unloading their bonds onto the Fed to increase money supply, but the money isn't going to the people....it goes back to the bank who lends them out to earn interest rates. This means less money owned by the people, more owned by the bank, and it doesn't change anything because people are unwilling to borrow in fear of small print!

Keynesian Cross, expectations of inflation. It is still macroeconomics, but Dr Breen got that wrong. This could end badly if Thomas Malthus' version is right.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

'Avatar' director rumored to have bought first ticket to the moon

"The first of two $150 million tickets for a pioneering tourist mission to the moon
was off the market Sunday, and its owner was rumored to be the world-
famous "Avatar" director James Cameron.

Space Adventures, the American company offering the trip scheduled for 2015,
said only that the buyer of the ticket was a "well-known" personality. The
expedition will begin aboard a Soyuz spaceship launched from Kazakhstan."

If you name your boat Titanic II, you’re asking for it.
Nevertheless, when Mark Wilkinson of Birmingham, England headed into a Dorset harbor on his 16-foot cabin cruiser, that was the name plastered on its side.
The boat sank. Go figure.

guess no one is going to name their Titanic anytime soon.

In such a case the bloaded german legal system would actually give right to the hospital. Because there is a law that defines how many coins have to be accepted as payment/change (central banks excluded). Typically stores will accept a higher number of coins as a good will business practice though (atm. the legal limit for a store to reject a payment is 51 coins per payment).

And by the time the sixth one sinks you can give them all appropriate titles:
Titanic I: The Iceberg Menace
Titanic II: Attack of the Clones
Titanic III: The Revenge of the Iceberg
Titanic IV: A New Hope
Titanic V: The Titanic Strikes Back
Titanic VI: Return of the Titanic

When was that law instituted? I don't remember any country in the world having a law like that.

Return of the Titanic? So it will be the old 1921 hull being reused a century later?
