Every man's (not to mention Hugh Hefner) dream will be fulfilled this Friday, when the June issue of Playboy magazine hits the newsstands. Inside we will find an eye-popping brunet beauty, Hope Dworaczyk, Playboy's Playmate of the year in eye-popping 3-D!
In a stroke of promotional genius, HBO, a unit of Time Warner Inc. (TWX) will help pay for the cost of the included special glasses - required to experience the new nude phenomenon.
A new and better model by researchers from Colorado State University, UC Irvine and Yale shows that soil microbes exhale less carbon dioxide as soil temperatures increase. Thus, there will be no positive feedback due to the evil global warming soil microbes, as the rogue Global Warming pseudo-scientists where happily assuming.

Pilot Lt. Miroslav "Steve" Zilberman was born in Kiev, Ukraine. Moved with his parents to Columbus, OH, when he was in the sixth grade. Joined US Navy to pay for college.
Miroslav died on March 31, 2010 in the North Arabian Sea at the age of 31. His E-2C Hawkeye plane's engine failed as he was returning from a mission in Afghanistan. He saved his entire crew, but was not able to save himself. His call sign was Abrek, just like one of the first two Soviet space monkeys.
First and foremost in my thinking these days is relative market risk of any position in my portfolio. What I see as high valuations have prevented me from opening any new equity positions so far this year and for much of 2009. In fact, before Exelon, my sole purchase this year has been that of iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasuries Bond ETF (TLT) on February 11th, 2010 at $90.12 and I see it as insurance against a declining stock market and troubles in the Euro zone.
I just spoke to the fine folks at State of Colorado DORA (Department of Regulatory Agencies), Division of Securities and, apparently, they have not yet put the information about this latest alleged Ponzi scheme based in Colorado online. I could also not find online Friday's court order freezing the assets of Mueller and his companies, Mueller Capital Management, LLC. and Mueller Over Under Fund LP. So, here is the information as reported by Denver Post and 9News - at least somebody is on the ball informing consumers!

In an unprecedented turn of events the recent early April dry spell has been replaced by unusually wet conditions. Today was the third day in a row with considerable precipitation. It started on Wednesday with rain. Yesterday came hail. (Hey G-d, next time, please watch out for me - you almost got me on the head with some of them marble-sized pieces yesterday.) And this morning, there was even some snow - real pretty.
