Glimmers of Hope for U.S. Economy


The recent rally in the stock market has been led by the very same financial sector that dragged down the market. Thanks to the modified mark-to-market accounting rules, several banks have seen much improved balance sheets and reported better than expected earnings for the first quarter of 2009.

What's the magic about "the modified market accounting rules"? Read more...

Free Music Download in China


After years of legal actions without success against piracy in China, the world’s biggest music record labels decided to adopt the old wisdom: "If you can't beat them, join them."

Last Monday, the record labels, including EMI, the Warner Music Group and Vivendi’s Universal Music, said they would offer free downloads of music to people in China via - a Google's partner.

OK. That part is easy. But, do they still want to make money in China? After observing how Google rack up revenues from Internet advertising, they hope the free music download service will boost the traffic to the site and hopefully the advertising revenue. They'll have a share of the advertising profit according to the deal.

I give them credit in finally figuring out that idea. I just wish they would have tried out the same idea beyond the border of China.

Sadness in April of 2009


Americans were in shock over the last few days due to a series of killings across the country.

A married couple were discovered inside their burning home in Herndon early Thursday in Fairfax County of Virginia. Police believes that the husband stabbed his wife to death and then set their home on fire. In Pierce county of Washington on Friday night, an angry farther who had dispute with his wife killed his wife and five children, before committing suicide. In Binghamton, New York, a gunman who recently lost his job killed 14 people at an upstate New York immigration center, before taking his own life on Friday. On Saturday morning in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, three police officers were killed by another gunman in front of the apartment the gunman shared with his mother. Luckily, the gunman surrendered himself after a four hour standoff with police.

I think the economic downturn has driven some of these people over the edge directly and indirectly. While wishing the best for the families that lost their love ones, I hope we as a country learn a lesson from these painful memories.
