[12:11] {nemo} whoa plce
[12:11] {Threei} and if she objects it's either because I don't get women at all (no big surprise there) or because she just likes to object
[12:12] {nemo} guess .28 was support

[12:20] {Threei} see?
[12:20] {Threei} [12:11] {Alert} Threei and if she objects it's either because I don't get women at all (no big surprise there) or because she just likes to object
[12:24] {larisa} I just have to defend my favorite setup :) it is not what you think it is
[12:24] {Threei} of course not
[12:24] {larisa} lol
[12:24] {Threei} now... I knew a couple once,
[12:25] {Threei} for 35 years husband was giving the same gift to a wife on every borthday,
[12:25] {Threei} parfume that he gave her once during courting years
[12:25] {Threei} and she said she loved it.
[12:25] {Threei} Parfume went out of production,
[12:25] {Threei} He went to great lengths to keep finding it
[12:26] {Threei} She never told him she hated it, always,
[12:26] {Threei} she was simply polite that fuirst time,
[12:26] {Threei} and then he was so happy to do it for her
[12:26] {Threei} she kept accepting it and thanking him
[12:27] {Threei} GSK German health officials reportedly plan to reduce order for swine flu vaccine doses by half to 25M doses; officials say GSK is willing to accept the reduced order
[12:28] {Threei} why wouldn't it... a few month more and no one will order it for ages
[12:28] {larisa} She may be polite but not smart. With men you have to tell them directly what you want.
[12:29] {patience} vad, give me your money
[12:29] {Threei} yup... "sit down and shut up" - we understand the language
[12:29] {fernp} LVS, Vad?

[12:33] {Les} ok
[12:33] {Les} ah its popped
[12:33] {Les} but will continue to watch it
[12:33] {Threei} market direction is needed, but FCX is weaker than market today,

[13:56] {Threei} Imax Corp Exec: 2010 is poised to be one of the best years we have ever seen for the business - Citi conf call
[13:56] {Threei} - Digital projection and distribution, and the elimination of very expensive film prints, have transformed the business.
[14:02] {Threei} Study on electric cars casts doubt on the chances for widespread adoption of electric cars by 2020 (related ABAT )
[14:03] {Threei} seriously?
[14:04] {Threei} - Although electric-car battery costs are expected to fall sharply over the coming decade, they are unlikely to drop enough to spark widespread adoption of fully electric vehicles without a major breakthrough in battery technology, according to a new study by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
[14:04] {Threei} - The study concludes that the long-term cost target used by many carmakers in planning their future fleets of electric cars$250 per kilowatt-hour (kWh)is unlikely to be achieved unless there is a major breakthrough in battery chemistry that substantially increases the energy a battery can store without significantly increasing the cost of either battery materials or the manufacturing process.
[14:04] {Threei} - Most electric cars in the new decade will use lithium-ion batteries, which are lighter and more powerful than the nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries used today in hybrids like the Toyota Prius. Citing the current cost of similar lithium-ion batteries used in consumer electronics (about $250 to $400 per kWh), many original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs) hope that the cost of an automotive lithium-ion battery pack will fall from its current price of between $1,000 and $1,200 per kWh to between $250 and $500 per kWh at scaled production.
[14:04] {Threei} - BCG, however, points out that consumer batteries are simpler than car batteries and must meet significantly less demanding requirements, especially regarding safety and life span. So actual battery costs will likely be higher than what carmakers predict.
[14:04] {Threei} - Despite this cost challenge, the report projects steady growth for electric cars and batteries. Electric cars include mild and full hybrids (like the early Toyota Prius and 2010 Ford Fusion, respectively), which combine an internal combustion engine (ICE) power train with supplementary electric motors to run the car at idle and low speeds; plug-in hybrids and range-extended electric vehicles (such as the next-generation Prius and General Motors' Chevrolet Volt, respectively), which combine electric motors with a supplementary ICE to run the motors after the batteries have been depleted; and fully electric vehicles (like the Mitsubishi i MiEV and upcoming Nissan Leaf), which can only be recharged by plugging into the power grid.

[15:05] {Threei} The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, which includes representation from the Fed said: "In the current environment of historically low short-term interest rates, it is important for institutions to have robust processes for measuring and, where necessary, mitigating their exposure to potential increases in interest rates."

[15:23] {strider} Are you suggesting 'they' are doing this, vad?
[15:24] {Threei} - Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:CYCC) (Nasdaq:CYCCP) ("Cyclacel" or the "Company") today announced that, on December 9, 2009, the Company was notified by the NASDAQ Staff that the Company does not comply with the minimum $10 million stockholders' equity requirement set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(b)(1)(A) (the "Rule") and that the Company's securities are subject to delisting from The Nasdaq Global Market unless the Company requests a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel").
[15:24] {Threei} Cyclacel intends to timely request a hearing before a Panel, which automatically stays the delisting of the Company's securities pending the issuance of the Panel's decision after a hearing. Under NASDAQ's Listing Rules, the Panel may, at its discretion, determine to continue the Company's listing pursuant to an exception to the Rule for a maximum of 180 days from the date of the Staff's notification or through June 7, 2010. However, there can be no assurances that the Panel will do so.
[15:26] {Les} really? rig one's stock price to stay in the NASDAQ?
[15:26] {strider} so do you think the news is phoney?
[15:26] {Threei} I'vw no idea
[15:29] {Threei} I have certainly seen this kind of situations before
[15:30] {Threei} but I alsao have seen real cases when company would pull itself from brionk of destrcuction
[15:30] {Threei} only typed better
[15:31] {Threei} I even saw a case when CEO promised great news after the close, and got a lot of people to buy... only to announce voluntary delisting

[15:31] {Threei} it's a real story, I am not kidding
[15:32] {strider} I guess he sold his shares before close.
[15:32] {fernp} of course
[15:32] {Threei} better yet
[15:32] {Threei} stock went to pink sheets, and in a few months he nmanaged to maNIPULATE THE PRICE TO ABOUT 15
[15:33] {Threei} so, in a way he was right... it was a good news
[15:33] {strider} news was that CEO was a very clever guy.
