JPMorgan’s Masters Urges No `Panic’ as Commodities Unit Slips (Bloomberg)
“Don’t panic,” she said in summing up the 35-minute call, a recording of which was obtained by Bloomberg News. “No one’s going to get screwed. We’re not going to do crazy things on compensation at the end of the year.” She hopes the second quarter “proves to be a record bad quarter for us in that there’s nothing but upside from here,” she said. “The outcome was both significantly below plan, significantly below last quarter and significantly below the year-ago linked quarter,” she said. The unit would have been in position to meet goals for the first half except for $83 million in revenue that the company deferred booking during the first six months “for a variety of sensible reasons.”

Marc Faber: Fed Printing May Create ‘Final’ Crisis (CNBC)
“Investors should have listened to me already six months ago when I wrote that the Fed will continue to monetize … they will print and print and print until the final crisis wipes out the whole system,” Faber said.

SEC Probes BP Potential Insider Trading (Reuters)
The SEC probe is one of a number of investigations of the company and others tied to the spill. Congressional committees and a presidentially appointed panel are probing various aspects of the spill.

Fed Mulls Symbolic Shift in Bond Strategy (WSJ)
The issue: Whether to use cash the Fed receives when its mortgage-bond holdings mature to buy new mortgage or Treasury bonds, instead of allowing its portfolio to shrink gradually, as it is expected to do in the months ahead. Any change—only four months after the Fed ended its massive bond-buying program—would signal deepening concern about the economic outlook. If the Fed’s forecast deteriorates significantly, it could also be a precursor to bigger efforts to pump money into the economy.

Political Ads Off Limits, Goldman Promises (NYT)
Goldman Sachs has pledged not to spend any of its vast corporate reserves on political advertising. The move was an unexpected sign of restraint after a major Supreme Court ruling this year that gave corporations the power to devote unlimited amounts to electing or defeating candidates for federal office. The investment bank quietly revised its statement on political activities on its Web site last week, adding a sentence addressing the powers that were granted under the Supreme Court decision in January, known as Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. “Goldman Sachs also does not spend corporate funds directly on electioneering communications,” the firm said in its statement. Those communications are generally interpreted to mean advertisements on radio and television broadcasts in the run-up to an election.

The Warren Commission (Portfolio)
As head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau at the Fed, Elizabeth Warren would give bankers agita. Here are a few alternatives who would give them the heart attack they need: Joe Borg, Eric Dinallo, Jim Chanos or Eliot Spitzer.

    I’ve come across that nowadays, more and more people will be attracted to camcorders and the field of pictures. However, really being a photographer, you will need to first spend so much time frame deciding the exact model of photographic camera to buy and also moving store to store just so you could buy the most inexpensive camera of the brand you have decided to settle on. But it won’t end there. You also have to contemplate whether you should purchase a digital digicam extended warranty. Thanks alot : ) for the good suggestions I accumulated from your site.

    It’s my belief that mesothelioma will be the most dangerous cancer. It contains unusual attributes. The more I really look at it the greater I am persuaded it does not work like a real solid tissue cancer. In the event mesothelioma can be a rogue virus-like infection, in that case there is the possibility of developing a vaccine and offering vaccination for asbestos uncovered people who are at high risk of developing foreseeable future asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for expressing your ideas about this important ailment.

    I have observed that in digital cameras, extraordinary receptors help to focus automatically. The particular sensors of some camcorders change in in the area of contrast, while others use a beam with infra-red (IR) light, specifically in low light. Higher specification cameras at times use a mix of both programs and likely have Face Priority AF where the dslr camera can ‘See’ a face and focus only on that. Thank you for sharing your opinions on this site.

    Thanks for your publiction. Another point is that to be a photographer involves not only difficulties in taking award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in establishing the best digital camera suited to your requirements and most especially challenges in maintaining the caliber of your camera. That is very correct and clear for those professional photographers that are into capturing the nature’s eye-catching scenes – the mountains, the actual forests, the wild or seas. Visiting these daring places definitely requires a dslr camera that can live up to the wild’s hard setting.

    Apple tyt888 today has Rhapsody as a possible app, which is a great start, but it truly is currently hampered with the inability to store locally with your iPod, and incorporates a dismal 64kbps touch rate. If that changes, then it’ll somewhat negate this kind of advantage for your Zune, but your 10 songs a month will still be a massive plus in Zune Pass’ prefer.
