there are some cultures where a two-hump camel is valued higher than a wife. even a model that can cook and carry water.
so… let’s see if that incites enough ire to get this post viral?
it fascinates me how interested Russians and Chinese are in Google. but, with that view comes research and an understanding of how Google can and probably level many a playing-field in terms of information and how we live our lives.
consider the Chinese Parable about, “Maybe”. there are numerous versions. however, this one helps make the point:
maybe – a parable
a chinese farmer lost his horse.
the neighbors reacted, “that’s terrible!”
the farmer: “maybe”
next day, the horse came back with several others.
the neighbors: “that’s wonderful!”
next day, the farmer’s son tried to tame one of the
wild horses, fell off, and broke a leg
neighbors: “that’s terrible!”
next day, the chinese army came through gathering men
for their army, but did not take the son due to his broken leg
neighbors: “that’s wonderful!”
meanwhile, and for it’s rich perspective…
“Even in this recent bull market spurt to new all-time highs, the run-up in Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) share price is dramatic. Since the beginning of the year, the stock has gained almost 13%. On March 6, …”
NOTE: thirteen percent (13%) comparatively speaking, is not “dramatic”. however, we must needs maintain the vital perspective that this, like many Google related articles, are a form of infomercial. and ANYTHING Yahoo! is suspect.
Brian Patrick Cork: the Google boys want to see their stock hit $1000 for bragging rights. but, it won’t get there on real merit. the products listed as drivers in this article are actually not fully baked. the right strategy is to split the stock. then hold on to your hats. otherwise, look for the Russians and Chinese to keep pushing some short action to keep the range lively enough for spot-trading.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
