Jeff Sachs omits aid from things ending poverty. Are we really any wiser than we were five years ago? How can the Fed wean the economy from stimulus when stimulus IS the economy? The story peddled by mainstream economic commentators goes that the US Federal Reserve and its international cousins have acted boldly to prevent a second Great Depression by stepping in to support the banks and not coincidentally the government bond markets by printing trillions of dollars of ex nihilo money which, through the mechanism of quantitative easing, will mysteriously reflate the economy.

The company was founded in and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. To review Barrett's stock, please take a look at the 1-year chart of BBG Bill Barrett Corporation below with my added notations: BBG had been trading in a sideways range for the last months.

During that period of time the stock had also been bouncing within a common chart pattern known as a rectangle. Rectangle patterns form when a stock bounces between a horizontal support and resistance. A minimum of 2 successful tests of the support and 2 successful tests of the resistance will give you the pattern.


Now that the stock has broken its rectangle resistance higher prices should follow. Volume would add validity, but that doesn't mean the stock isn't still going higher. Please share this article. Rent vs. US Weekly Economic Calendar.

Solar activity is at a year low, and even though we were supposed to be in the midst of a solar maximum this year, our sun has been eerily quiet. So precisely what in the world is going on?

Cloud implies that local-only proponents are false teachers, who start with a pre-conceived definition of church and then force it on every usage of ekklesia.

He buttresses that point by referring to three times in Acts 19 that the KJV translators translate ekklesia"assembly. However, the translation does more to damage Cloud's cause, since they translate it "assembly," because that's what ekklesia means. Of course, ekklesia is not always a "church," but that doesn't mean that it is anything other than an assembly.

Cloud shows his ignorance of Greek, when he says a meaning of ekklesia is "called out assembly. Called out to what?


To assemble. The original usage of the word was the citizens of a Greek city state called out of their homes to assemble for governing.

It still means assembly. Cloud says that local-only advocates say that "church" must always be used as an assembly, because that's what the word means. He says the Holy Spirit can adapt Greek words to mean something different than their standard usage in the first century. What he is saying is true in certain instances, but not in very many. Almost exclusively the word was used in the Bible the same way it was in secular literature.

In the case of ekklesiathis is true. It is always an assembly, which is why that word was used. We can easily see that ekklesia is used as an assembly. We don't have one instance of a usage that would have us know that it means anything different than assembly. Cloud doesn't give one in his article. Then Cloud states that Ephesians 2 could be referring to a spiritual church in heaven that is gathered there already, since believers are already seated in the heavenlies.

He writes: For example, Ephesians 2 says that every believer is made alive and risen from the dead and seated in heavenly places together with Christ Eph. If you look at the verbs in the Textus Receptus or the critical text for that matterthey aren't present tense verbs. They're aorist. None of them are present tense. So the kind of action of those verbs is not continuous.

When you make a theological point, a teaching, based on the verbs being "present tense," and they're actually not present tense, that really does undermine completely your argument. They are not said to be continuously sitting in heavenly places, as if you've got a functioning assembly already in heaven made up of all the saved people.

An obvious point is that you don't have the word "church" ekklesia appearing in Ephesians Cloud reads that into the text. There is no doctrine of the church there. Cloud starts then to answer questions about the church. I'll talk more about those later.

Today marks the beginning of our next book, Lead with a Story by Paul Smith. Experience is the best teacher, but a compelling story is a close second. Corporations are also recognizing the importance of telling stories. Storytelling is simple.

Anyone can do it. Storytelling is timeless. Unlike fads in other areas of management such as total quality management, reengineering, Six Sigma, or 5S, storytelling has always worked for leadership, and it always will. Stories are demographic-proof. Everybody — regardless of age, race, or gender — likes to listen to stories. Stories are contagious. They spread like wildfire without any additional effort on the part of the storyteller.

Stories are easier to remember. According to psychologist Jerome Bruner, facts are 20 times more likely to be remembered if they are part of a story. Organizational psychologist Peg Neuhauser found similar results in her work with corporations. She found that learning derived from a well-told story is remembered more accurately, and for far longer than the learning derived from facts or figures. Stories inspire. But you have heard people say that about stories. Stories appeal to all types of learners.

Visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners all benefit from stories. Visual learners appreciate the mental pictures storytelling evokes. Kinesthetic learners remember the emotional connections and feelings from the story. Stories fit better where most of the learning happens in the workplace. And the bedrock of informal learning is storytelling.To start off your Monday with a smile, we present our second installment of "Texts From a Lawyer" changed from Sunday's title "Texts from a solo-practitioner".

It happens more that you might suspect. Sometimes the mistake is realized after a few moments.

A lot has been going through my head since I first heard last September that Jim only had a year or so to live. Not only about Jim, but life itself. He had already been at the station for a few years or so.

He, like the other small "new music" staff at the time, all came from different backgrounds and areas of New Jersey. But our love of music brought us together. Many of the on-air personalities at at the station came and went over the years, but Jim never left.

He gave up his overnights for a handful of years, and for most of his tenure at the station, spent almost every Saturday night at the station, for the love of music and playing music for the tri-state area that HE thought EVERYONE should like.

I don't think he missed more than 5 shows before the beginning of this year. Jim did a lot not only for the artists he played, but built one of the most dedicated group of listeners and station supporters over the years.

All of Jim's shows were an pleasant adventure. Not only musically, but what Jim talked about and ranted about in-between the music. Of course I will miss this, but most of all I will miss the guy who did and said what he believed in.
