Avon Gets Knocked

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Not sure what to make of the pre-open action in Avon (AVP) ... reported Q3 results at 7:01 AM ... Associated Press wrote this post at 7:23 AM ("results topped Wall Street expectations") ... stock actually opened *up* at 8:00 AM and traded several thousand shares above $11.50 before a correct interpretation took over during the conference call ... the stock ended down around 9% from yesterday's close.   Anyone who could intelligently parse the results when they were released would have made a bundle on the short side.

Transparent -- S01 E10

Sets up for season two which I've read is in the works ... interested enough to continue gawking at this dysfunctional family ... show won't fly in flyover country, but if you're a member of the coastal elite, check it out.

‘Transparent,’ TV review  - NY Daily News  

"None of the “Transparent” characters hits us up front as particularly likable. They seem less representative of a conflicted world than simply self-centered."

“Happy Valley” and “Transparent” Reviews SEPTEMBER 29, 2014 ISSUE  

"there has been a set of excellent series recently, from Sundance’s “Top of the Lake” and “Rectify” to the BBC’s wonderfully quiet British seaside thriller, “Broadchurch.” " 

DIDN'T MAKE IT FAR INTO TOP OF THE LAKE AND BROADCHURCH DISAPPOINTED IN THE END BUT RECTIFY WAS GOOD 

"the show has mildly funky pacing: like “Girls” and “Looking” and “Louie,” it’s part of the new school of indie-inflected TV, a set of lyrical outliers that stop and start, using music and montages to suggest ideas without fully explaining them." 

YES 

"As a member of the tribe, Soloway is free to critique a certain generational strain of urbane self-obsession, one that merges self-love with self-loathing." 

SHOW IS GENERALLY VERY JEW-Y FOR SURE

The final product, he writes, “is not a perfect representation of everything that happened.” That may be true but if you find yourself editing out all the catcalling white guys, maybe you should try another take."

Beijing’s Subway Fare Reform: Good, But Not Good Enough | David Feng  

" a majority approved changes that would see starting fares a la Shanghai (CNY 3.— instead of CNY 2.—). The rates being proposed are not cheap!

Mileage between 6 km and 12 km: CNY 4.— 
Extra CNY 1.— per 10 km for distances from 12 km to 32 km 
Extra CNY 1.— per 20 km for distances from 32 km onwards

Katz’s Delicatessen: How the iconic deli stays in business against the odds.  

"The fundamental problem facing every remaining deli, Katz’s included, is that the gargantuan sandwiches for which they are known aren’t very profitable. Rather, they’re a legacy of the early 20th century, when brisket (used in corned beef) and navel plate (the fattier, bovine belly meat Katz’s uses for pastrami) were considered cheap trash cuts and hundreds of Jewish restaurants could compete for immigrant clientele with rock-bottom prices. But the days of inexpensive navel and brisket are long gone—thanks in part to the national love affair with Texas-style barbecue—and delis can only raise their prices so high before turning off customers."

Working in coordination with Ad Block Plus, AdNauseam quietly clicks every blocked ad, registering a visit on the ad networks databases. As the data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user profiling, targeting and surveillance becomes futile.

The roasted rice was delicious and added a great crunch.

Understanding Chinese cash flow statements | China Accounting Blog | Paul Gillis  

There is a big differ-ence in the cash flow statements under the two standards. IFRS (and US GAAP) permit use of either the direct or indirect method for the cash flow statement, but most companies, including Tianhe, elect to use the indirect method. In the US, a 2007 study of 600 listed companies found 594 used the indirect method. CAS, however, requires that the cash flow statement be prepared using the dir-ect method, and following the belt and suspenders approach of Chinese financial reporting, CAS requires disclosure of the indirect method in the footnotes. So investors get it both ways, a modest plus for CAS.

NxCore Access Applications  

HotLists: 

Next on the list is a new Hot-List Viewer Application. The Hot-List Viewer is one of the most popular apps that ships with NxCore. Hunsander wraps a lot of power into this application (having also written the Hot-List Viewer in QCharts in the Quote.com continuum API days, he is infinitely familiar with what users want in a Hot List app). To top it off this new Hot-List Viewer is even more powerful than the integrated Hot-List found in the APIViewer! Hunsader brings you more functionality, more GUI options, more fields and much, much more. Contained in one source file, you will be well served to do a full examination of this code as it is difficult to believe this much functionality comes with this small a footprint. So, want to tweak the Hot-Lists to your liking? Now's your chance!

Movies Watched -- Under the Skin

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Weird one ... sort of a sci fi horror film ... the more I think about it the more I liked it, so it gets a recommended rating, but it's not easy to watch ... or listen to, the soundtrack is intentionally disturbing.  Scarlett plays a good alien with her blank look, sort of like Arnold being ideal for playing the Terminator. Spoiler: My theory is she was persona non grata once she brought back the Elephant Man, whom the Borg rejected ... once on the run, she was just bewildered and dying. She didn't have long to live, the torch just sped things up.  Glazer made Sexy Beast, which was one of my favorite movies in whatever year it came out, can't remember.

Goose attack ... it's true that geese are fierce; I'm a country boy and know this firsthand ... they switched the actress who was playing Mrs. Samsky's girlfriend, who I thought was super hot in a cold Nordic way (Gen X Colgate alum, Gillian Vigman).

NJDOH - Vital Statistics, How to Order a Vital Record, Birth, Marriage, Death Certificates, Types of copies  

Certified copies have the raised seal of the office issuing the record and are always issued on State of New Jersey safety paper. Certified copies may be used to establish identity and are legal documents.
 
Certifications are issued on plain paper with no seal and clearly indicate they are not valid for establishing identity or for legal purposes. Certifications are generally only useful for genealogy. Certifications of death records do not contain the Social Security Number or the Cause of Death medical terminology.

Getting an Apostille Seal – An Apostille Seal is an additional seal required for certain certified records that will be presented to a foreign government that is a member of the Hague Treaty.  Also, the seal is often required on documents for international adoptions or establishing dual citizenship. Contact the consulate of the country involved to determine if you need an Apostille Seal.

To get a record with an Apostille Seal, first obtain a certified copy of the vital record from the Office of Vital Statistics and Registry. Indicate on your application that it will need an Apostille Seal, and you will receive a certified copy of the vital record with the original signature of the State Registrar or Assistant State Registrar. You must forward this document to the New Jersey Department of Treasury, which issues the Apostille Seal.
To get a copy of a vital record, you must submit:

A completed application
A copy of the proof(s) of your identity
The correct fee
Proof of your relationship to the person listed on the vital record you are requesting (Only required for certified copies)

But I didn’t receive anything. I think the organizers should have postponed the race – there’s no way anyone should have attempted running without a mask.”"
