Remember Tony Hayward of BP oil "spill" fame? Karma train got him.

He who complained he wanted his life back during the height of the BP mess, and was later.....re-assigned....from public eye?

Well, he "left" BP ( under a dark greasy oil cloud)
and was chosen to be Chairman of Glencore Company in 2013, over the complaints of Glencore investors.

One institutional investor has sold off its entire holding in the business over concerns that Hayward
– the former boss of BP who was forced out of the oil multinational in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico four years ago
– is to take over as chairman of the company created through the controversial merger of Glencore and Xstrata.


Glencore’s shares have been pummeled by concerns that the world’s largest copper supplier and thermal coal exporter may struggle to safeguard its credit rating in light of its heavy debt burden, which is among the highest in the industry.

Here is their stock chart:

Job offer on Craigslist.....maybe you know someone who qualifies

This is what a $350,000 house in San Francisco looks like

According to the broker, it’s the cheapest home on the market in San Francisco, and it’s an unlivable shack.

It is a worn-down, decomposing wooden shack that was built in 1906, and the interior is unlivable in its current condition.
Originally an earthquake shelter, the shack was built in the aftermath of the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The 765-square-foot unit caught the attention of Tran and Han during a drive around the neighborhood

GM to SUV owners: Don't drive these ,they can catch fire in the motor.

DETROIT (AP) – General Motors is telling owners of some SUVs not to use their windshield wipers because an electrical short could cause the motor to catch fire.

The company is recalling nearly 32,000 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia SUVs from the 2016 model to fix the problem.

Only 6,400 were sold and the rest are being held at dealerships until they are repaired. Most are in North America.

GM says if weather stops owners from taking their SUVs to dealers, it will pick up the vehicles for service. It also will arrange rental cars if parts aren’t available.
Dealers will replace faulty wiper motor covers that allow some electrical terminals to come in contact with each other.


You can check your SUV on this site:

Where are these made, anyhow?
How come there are so many recalls of GM cars?

I am so happy about Jerry Brown's decision on Right to Die legislation.

Jerry Brown’s Humble, Humane Decision
All lawmakers should follow his example, especially when thinking about life and death.

This week, California Gov. Jerry Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, signed the End of Life Option Act. The new law will permit Californians to obtain prescriptions for lethal doses of painkillers if they are suffering from a terminal illness. Brown was clearly deeply conflicted as he signed off on the controversial legislation, which will make California the fifth state to pass a physician-assisted suicide law after Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Vermont. This is of huge consequence to backers of the right-to-die movement because once California's law goes into effect in early 2016, 1 in 10 Americans will live in a state that would permit terminally ill patients to end their lives. Twenty other state legislatures have been considering this type of legislation.


The link outlines the many personal steps Brown went thru before signing the law.

I want that option for myself if needed, even if it means moving to West Coast ( most likely back to Washington)

This is the best present I could think for all DU peeps.

The next time the morons of the universe, particularly the Repubs ( I am looking at you, McCain, et all) drive you nutz,

go here:

works great for that around the bend insane crazy OP we run into occasionally.

Try it....then tell us how you feel.

Graham opposed Sandy aid but wants help in South Carolina Eric Bradner

Sen. Lindsey Graham is asking for federal aid for his home state of South Carolina as it battles raging floods, but he voted to oppose similar help for New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2013.

When asked why South Carolina deserved the disaster relief money but New Jersey did not, Lindsey did the charming trick of riding a bicycle backwards.

“I’m all for helping the people in New Jersey. I don’t really remember me voting that way,” Graham said.

Pressed further, he said: “Anyway, I don’t really recall that, but I’d be glad to look and tell you why I did vote no, if I did.”


So who is watching Madam Secretary???

amazingly up to date, they opened with TPP.
