Seen on a You Tube chat :

"Citadel is owned by Press Secretary Jen Psaki's brother."

IS THIS TRUE?

Dilanian Stands By Story
The piece came under fire for implying that donations to the pro-Israel group raised questions about Neuberger's loyalty to the United States, a longstanding and insidious anti-Semitic trope. Dilanian's report quoted anonymous critics arguing that the donations "risk creating the possible appearance of bias" in favor of Israel.

This could only happen to a Democrat.

Ken Griffin Founder, CEO, and Co-CIO Citadel LLC

In 2016 Griffin reportedly earned $600 million in compensation from Citadel.

In 2017 Griffin reportedly earned $1.4 billion in compensation from Citadel.

In 2018 Griffin reportedly earned $870 million in compensation from the hedge fund segment of Citadel.

In 2019 Griffin reportedly earned $1.5 billion of compensation from Citadel.

As of October 2020 Griffin had an estimated net worth of US$15.8 billion, making him the 2nd richest person in Illinois and the 45th richest person in America.

Doesn't appear to be linked to Jen Psaki

Many of the articles on the Gamestop story have pointed out many of the Reddit retail traders are people who can't work due to the pandemic lockdown and many of them used their stimulus checks to pay for their initial investments. In other words, a large chunk of the Redditor retail traders started out with only hundreds or a few thousand dollars.

Here is something to think about for the future. The Redditors who are leading the charge are now going to be multi-millionaires once they cash in their Gamestop stock. They don't intend to sell until the shorts that the hedge funds bought expire. If these Redditor retail traders can do this to a major hedge fund when they started out with only hundreds and a few thousand dollars, what will they be capable of doing once they have millions of dollars available to them?

This is who the companies favorite scribe targeted:

Neuberger's grandparents are Holocaust survivors,[11] and her parents, George Karfunkel and Renee Karfunkel, were among the passengers on the hijacked Air France flight in 1976, rescued by Israeli commandos in Operation Thunderbolt from Uganda’s Entebbe Airport.[12][13] Neuberger is also the founder of a nonprofit organization, Sister to Sister, that serves single mothers across the United States.[12] She also serves on the board of Bridging Voice and JDC.

Neo

Not a whole lot, unless there is yet another stupid hedge fund out there who naked shorts a stock for more than 100% of the stock.

Digital learning is actually preferred because the experience provided to the student is controlled by the software creator of the virtual reality and the software is a beast at collecting data that can be used to 'adjust' as desired going forward.

I have lots of books and papers on this, but perhaps the most stunning is Willis Harman who started the Institute for Noetic Sciences in his book Global Mind Change,/i> where he pointed out the body reacts the same to actual reality and virtual reality when it comes to the neurobiological changes. VR is much easier to manipulate to the desired ends and has said so.

UNESCO 's digital work has always been run out of moscow and even though english and french are the official languages, much of their work remains in russian untranslated and the previous head, irina bokova, had lots of EU complaints about her preference that this work be conducted in russian and remain in russian.

These are certainly creative definitions. No wonder they jumped at the george floyd video.

Climate action includes individual, collective, personal, and political efforts that help to mitigate against climate change and its underlying technical and social drivers, and/or strengthen the adaptive and transformative capacities of our human, natural, and socio-ecological systems.

Climate empowerment is the practical, political, and personal process to understanding the complexities of the systemic drivers of climate change. These include historic and contemporary systems of oppression over marginalized groups; the capacity to exercise power to disrupt and transform unjust and unsustainable systems and vested interests; and the increased access to resources and opportunities for individual, collective, personal, and political action in response to and in anticipation of climate change and its impacts.

Ecological literacy is knowledge not only about the environment and climate change, but also about the interconnected and interdependent socio-ecological systems through which humans are connected to each other and to the planet. This includes an understanding of gender, power, patriarchy, and colonialism, and how these can extend to our (extractive and destructive, or regenerative and sustainable) human interactions with the natural world.

Did I close it all successfully?

Is any of this subject to an antiSLAPP motion?
Even if it isn't, pleadings and testimony are close to absolutely protected speech. And the courts have been pretty expansive by including any and all communications referring to or associated with contemplated lawsuits as privileged even if made outside court or pleadings.

AN excellent thread about how credentialism enters into this Wall Street mess, as well as a good clip of Psaki telling a reporter that Yellen deserved those speaking fees from Citadel ($810,000 at last count) because she's an "expert":

https://twitter.com/Doc_0/status/1355144052983914497

rse

Now cathy, why would this type of aspiration leave a wreck in its wake?

Prioritize radical acts of care and reconnections to systems of care. Because this approach to education engages headfirst with issues of power and inequality, this means conflict, grief, anger, and trauma are a core experience of transformative learning.

This is especially the case in the context of coming to terms with the full complexity of the climate crisis, its underlying systemic drivers—including gender inequality and the violation of human rights—and its irreversible losses.

Indeed, researchers suggest that an important mediating process—in addition to agency and the recognition of opportunity structures—is the affective or emotive experience of climate change.


While educators can design experiential, action research or action learning projects to engage learners with personal change or local community-level action, it is the facilitation of the psychological and the emotional process that lead students to either withdraw from action or become motivated to act. Such emotive processes can either render learners hopeless and without a sense of purpose, or can help to build their identities as change makers, paving the way to the development of political agency and a political consciousness.

Before you enter that short squeeze game, see if you can read these paragraphs from a CNBC story to you wife and explain them to her as you go. If she nods her head, go right ahead and buy in. Your wife is a keeper.

CNBC:

“While the ‘value shorts’ that were in GME earlier have been squeezed, most of the borrowed shares that were returned on the back of the buy to covers were shorted by new momentum shorts in the name,” Dusaniwsky added in an email.

Shares of GameStop, along with other heavily shorted stocks, spiked once again Friday, after Robinhood said it was resuming limited trading of previously restricted securities. The gain pushed GameStop’s rally this week to over 400% and this month to more than 1,600%.

The video game stock has been the star of the show on the WallStreetBets Reddit forum, whose membership has grown rapidly to over 5 million. A wave of day traders continued to encourage each other to pile into GameStop’s shares and call options, creating a massive short squeeze that inflicted pain for hedge funds betting against the stock.

The borrow fee on GameStop’s stock — or the cost-to-borrow shares for the purpose of selling them short — jumped to 29.32% on existing shorts and 50% on new short positions, S3 said.

“If most of the shorts had covered, we would not be seeing stock borrow rates at these high levels — by now you would be able to borrow GME stock at single digit levels due to an increase in the lendable stock loan supply due to borrowed shares being returned after all the ‘supposed’ buy-to-covers,” Dusaniwsky said.

Maybe someone can explain to me, as I'm constrained as to how I can buy and sell stocks due to my wife's employer, so I have no direct knowledge. Why does RobinHood have so much power here? Surely it's not the only way to buy and sell GameStop, is it? Can't I buy and sell it using Schwab or any of the other online brokerage services?
