Rudy Giuliani Is a Nasty Man: Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch (1999)
Edward Irving "Ed" Koch (/ˈkɒtʃ/ kotch; December 12, 1924 – February 1, 2013) was an American lawyer, politician, political commentator, movie critic and reality television arbitrator. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/156980155X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=156980155X&linkCode=as2&tag=ub066-20&linkId=a33b6774fd951b48c009c662a49eca83 He served in the United States House of Representatives from 1969 to 1977 and three terms as mayor of New York City, which he led from fiscal insolvency to economic boom, from 1978 to 1989. Koch was a lifelong Democrat who described himself as a "liberal with sanity". The author of an ambitious public housing renewal program in his later years as mayor, he began by cutting spending and taxes and cutting 7,000 from the city payroll after the expansive Lindsay and Beame administrations. As a congressman and after his terms as mayor he was a fervent supporter of the State of Israel. He crossed party lines to endorse Rudy Giuliani for mayor in 1993, Michael Bloomberg in 2001, and President George W. Bush in 2004.[2] A popular figure, he rode the New York City Subway and stood at street corners greeting passersby with the slogan "How'm I doin'?"[3] His private life was enigmatic, with speculation about his sexuality, which he rebuffed as nobody's business but his own: he had no children, and no publicly acknowledged romantic relationships, but declared his heterosexuality upon his retirement. He won re-election in 1981 with 75 percent, the first New York City mayor to win endorsement on both the Democratic and Republican party tickets. He won his second re-election with 78 percent of the vote. His third term was fraught with scandal regarding political associates, although it never touched him personally, and with racial tensions, including the murder of Yusuf Hawkins a month before a fourth primary, which he lost in a close race to New York City's first black mayor, David Dinkins. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Koch Rudolph William Louis "Rudy" Giuliani[1] KBE (/ˈruːdi ˌdʒuːliˈɑːni/;[2] born May 28, 1944) is an American lawyer, businessman, former politician, and public speaker from New York. Politically a Democrat and then an Independent in the 1970s, but a Republican since the 1980s, Giuliani was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York during the 1980s and prosecuted pivotal cases against the American Mafia and against corrupt corporate financiers. Giuliani tamed organized crime—most famously leading the case that sent boss John Gotti, the "Teflon Don," to prison for life based on testimony brokered in a deal with Sammy "The Bull" Gravano. That accomplishment, which won Giuliani a reputation for being tough on crime, helped to launch his political career.[3] During his first term as Mayor of New York City, Giuliani hired a new police commissioner, William Bratton, who applied the broken windows theory of urban decay, which holds that minor disorders and violations create a permissive atmosphere that leads to further and more serious crimes that can threaten the safety of a city.[3] Within several years, Giuliani was widely credited for major improvements in the city's quality of life and rates of violent crimes.[3] While still mayor, he ran for U.S. Senate in 2000, but withdrew upon diagnosis of prostate cancer.[4] Still, he gained international fame as New York City's leader in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in 2001. Giuliani was named Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2001,[5] and was given an honorary knighthood in 2002 by the United Kingdom's Queen Elizabeth II.[6] In 2002, Giuliani founded Giuliani Partners (security consulting), acquired and later sold Giuliani Capital Advisors (investment banking), and joined a Texas firm while opening a New York office for the firm renamed Bracewell & Giuliani (legal services). Giuliani sought the Republican Party's 2008 presidential nomination, and was considered the early front runner in the race,[7] before withdrawing from the race to endorse the eventual nominee John McCain. Giuliani was considered a potential candidate for New York governor in 2010[8][9] and for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.[10] However, Giuliani declined all races and instead remained in the business sector. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudy_Giuliani

The Impact of The Sopranos on Italian-American Stereotypes (2001)
After the pilot was ordered in 1997, the show premiered on the premium cable network HBO in the United States on January 10, 1999, and ran its six seasons with 86 episodes to June 10, 2007. The series then went through syndication and has been broadcast on A&E in the United States and internationally. The Sopranos was produced by HBO, Chase Films, and Brad Grey Television. It was primarily filmed at Silvercup Studios, New York City, and on location in New Jersey. The executive producers throughout the whole run were David Chase, Brad Grey, Robin Green, Mitchell Burgess, Ilene S. Landress, Terence Winter, and Matthew Weiner. The Sopranos is widely regarded as one of the greatest television series of all time. The series also won a multitude of awards, including Peabody Awards for its first two seasons, 21 Primetime Emmy Awards and five Golden Globe Awards. A staple of 2000s American popular culture, the series has been the subject of critical analysis, controversy, and parody. It has spawned books,[7] a video game, high-charting soundtrack albums, and a large amount of assorted merchandise. Several members of the show's cast and crew who were previously largely unknown to the public have had successful careers after The Sopranos. In 2013, the Writers Guild of America named The Sopranos the best-written TV series of all time,[14] while TV Guide ranked it the best television series of all time. The show has frequently been criticized for perpetuating negative stereotypes about Italian Americans. Several major organizations have voiced their concern that The Sopranos presents a very distorted and harmful stereotype of Italian Americans and their cultural values, including the National Italian American Foundation, Order Sons of Italy in America, Unico National, and the Italic Institute of America. In 2000, officials in Essex County, New Jersey denied producers permission to film on county-owned property, arguing that the show depicts Italian Americans in a "less than favorable light." In 2002, organizers of the New York City Columbus Day Parade won an injunction preventing Mayor Michael Bloomberg from inviting cast members of The Sopranos to participate in the parade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sopranos Image By gdcgraphics [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Governor Christie: We Cannot Continue To Make Moral Judgments About Addiction
Scientific American Opioid Addiction Forum at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, 5-19-2016 Transcript: Governor Christie: When my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, no one came to us and said don’t treat her, she is getting what she deserves. Since 1964, she’s been warned that smoking could or would cause lung cancer and she chose every day to open another pack of cigarettes, light them up and smoke them. So really she is getting what she deserves. No one said that to us, in fact the reaction, as many of you I’m sure have experienced yourselves with members of your family or friends, was the exact opposite. People suggesting the best hospitals and doctors for her to go to, sharing their own stories to try to be compassionate to her. To give her hope. We did not see any of the stigma that is attached to an addiction even though my mother’s disease was exclusively caused by her own conduct and her own choices and her addiction. But people saw it somehow as different. Why? The fact is that, as it was mentioned earlier, there are lots of factors that come into the issue of drug addiction but we believe now, if my mother was a heroin addict rather than a smoker, would people have reacted the same way? Would we have told people? I had no hesitation in telling people that my mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer. I was seeking help, seeking guidance, seeking comfort. If my mother was a heroin addict would we have said the same thing? If my mother was addicted to opioids would we say the same thing? We wouldn’t. We know we wouldn’t and we don’t. And what’s that cause? It causes us not only to have a lack of candor and honesty, which leads to an even greater lack of openness, but also it leads to the person suffering from the disease being unwilling to admit it, to discuss it, to seek treatment and to deal with the issue. They deal with it in the shadows, at best. So the stigma issue has to be fixed and I think only can be fixed by forums like this and people in public life, in all aspects of public life, not just political leadership, talking about the issue. It’s extraordinarily important and giving permission to people who are suffering from this disease to admit it and to seek help. And for us not to continue to make the moral judgements that we have been making. Now, this is in the context of me being one of the most anti-drug governors in the country. I don’t believe in the legalization or decimalization of marijuana. I don’t believe in the legalization of drugs in anyway and I believe in stiff penalties for those who profit from the dealing of drugs. The two are separable and in fact I think need to be for us to be effective. We have to continue to encourage people not to start but recognize that when they do, we have an obligation to encourage them to seek help because this is a disease. # # #

Obama takes the lead in Iowa
Hello on this Thursday, January 3, 2008. I'm Kristin Volk with a UPI Headline Update. Senator Barack Obama has grabbed the number one Democratic spot in Iowa as voting for the 2008 presidential election begins there today. That's according to a new poll just released. Barack Obama is in a four-point lead over John Edwards. Hillary Clinton has faded to third. In the Republican race, Mike Huckabee expanded his lead six points over former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson is in third place. Today's contest in Iowa kicks off a state-by-state battle to choose Republican and Democratic candidates for the November election to replace President Bush. Meanwhile, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg is denying that he'll run for president. There's been speculation recently that the mayor may jump into the race after it was announced that he would attend a forum next week. That forum is being led by a bipartisan group that believes the Republican and Democratic parties are out of touch. Bloomberg is now independent. Earlier today, he said he's going to focus on being mayor and wants to see an independent approach in the '08 elections to stop partisan bickering and special interests. The U.S. Justice Department is launching an investigation into the CIA's destruction of those videotapes. The tapes showed harsh interrogation techniques of terrorism suspects. The CIA says it acted lawfully, but critics say the agency ignored court orders and investigators' requests that it hand over evidence in various terrorism cases. A California congressman is retiring after being diagnosed with cancer. Democrat Tom Lantos says he will not seek re-election this year because of his disease's treatment and development. The 79-year-old, who's the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says he has esophageal cancer. Lantos is the latest of more than a dozen members to announce plans to leave the House at the end of the year. That's all for now. Check out our new special segment called "Nothing but Hope" on upi.com today. Thanks for watching.

Mayor Bloomberg Announces Improved Health Outcomes As a Result of Advancements in Technology
Mayor Bloomberg, Deputy Mayor Gibbs and Health Commissioner Farley Announce Expansion of Electronic Health Records Result in Major Health Care Improvements City's Primary Care Information Project Helped an Additional 96,000 Patients Control High Blood Pressure, 81,000 Improve Diabetes Management and 58,000 Quit Smoking Program Now a National Model Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Deputy for Health and Human Services Linda I. Gibbs, Health Commissioner Thomas A. Farley today announced that the use of electronic health records has led to better health outcomes for tens of thousands New Yorkers in the critical areas of high blood pressure management, diabetes and tobacco control. New York City's introduction of electronic health records, which has become a national model, was a result of the Primary Care Information Project, a program that began in 2005 to help medical providers, particularly those with underserved patients, use technology to improve the quality and efficiency of health care. The prompts that electronic health records give doctors, such as signaling a daily dose of aspirin to prevent heart disease or follow up questions for someone who smokes, make a dramatic difference in how aggressively they treat the chronic health conditions of their patients. Through 3,200 primary care providers serving more than three million New Yorkers with electronic health records, over 96,000 additional patients reduced their high blood pressure, 81,000 patients improved their diabetes management and an additional 58,000 smokers were given assistance and successfully quit. The Mayor made the announcement at the "NYC Celebrates Improved Health Through Technology" event at the New York Institute of Technology where he was joined by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Dr. Farzad Mostashari and Director of Health Services Andrea Cohen. The Primary Care Information Project was started in New York City by Dr. Farzad Mostashari under then-Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Frieden as a $27 million city initiative to use technology to improve the quality and efficiency of health care throughout the five boroughs, especially in some of New York City's medically underserved neighborhoods: East and Central Harlem, the South Bronx, and Central Brooklyn. More than 3,200 medical providers treating 3 million New Yorkers received electronic health record software and training to learn how to use it in their practices. Patients served by doctors participating in the program were, for example, reminded to take daily aspirin doses to prevent heart disease or counseled to quit smoking. Electronic Health Records also permit doctors to view data on their entire population of patients, which helps them modify their routine office practices to help all of their patients and then evaluate how well those changes work. Between 2008 and 2011, the number of preventive care services participating doctors provided grew, on average, by about 290%, from 39 services per 100 patients to 113 services per 100 patients -- nearly a threefold increase. The use of this technology led to improvements in detecting certain preventable health problems, including high blood pressure, tobacco use, high cholesterol, and diabetes. With the help of electronic health records, an additional 81,000 patients improved their management of diabetes, 96,000 New Yorkers got help controlling their high blood pressure. And an additional 58,000 smokers got help kicking the habit. Early intervention in these illnesses is key to improving the health of New Yorkers and increasing life expectancy: Smoking is the leading cause of preventable premature death, and can lead to debilitating diseases such as cancer and heart disease; while steady decreasing, nearly 15 percent of New Yorkers reported being smokers in 2011. Obesity is also a leading cause of preventable death, and causes a number of illnesses including diabetes which, if left untreated, diabetes can lead to amputations, blindness and many other consequences. In 2011,11 percent of New Yorkers reported that they had diabetes. High blood pressure, a consequence of both smoking and obesity, damages your heart, brain, arteries and kidneys. Nearly 29 percent of New Yorkers reported being diagnosed with high blood pressure in 2011. The success of the City's Primary Care Information Project inspired a national initiative to introduce electronic health records to medical providers across the country as a way of improving the quality of care. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has funded 62 Regional Extension Centers to help over 132,000 primary care providers adopt electronic health records.

Dr Luis A. Diaz Foresees Mismatched Repair Testing Implementation in Cancer Treatment
Luis A. Diaz, Jr, MD, associate professor of Oncology, Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, discovered that patients with high mutational burden with mismatched repair responded well to checkpoint inhibition of anti-PD1. For colon cancer and perhaps for additional cancers such as pancreatic, lung, and ovarian, Dr Diaz predicts that mismatched repair testing will change the course of cancer treatment in the coming years.                “My suspicion is that this will become standard of care in the near future for colon cancer. And that will demand that mismatched repair testing be a part of the standard of care for those patients,” Dr Diaz said. “And I suspect that up front, when you get diagnosed with advanced colon cancer, you’re going to get mismatched repair testing.”   Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center is now in collaboration with Merck, which Dr Diaz said is in the beginning stages of opening 2 new studies focused on patients who failed all therapy and on patients who are newly diagnosed in an effort to compare which standard of care works more effectively.

On April 29, 2014, the newly constructed NBC News Los Angeles Bureau was dedicated in Tom Brokaw's name. This video presentation was played for ceremony attendees to highlight Mr. Brokaw's breadth of work throughout his four decades with NBC News. Friends and colleagues including Brian Williams, Jane Pauley, Steven Spielberg, Robert Redford and Michael Bloomberg sat to discuss the impact Mr. Brokaw has had on NBC and the world of broadcast news. Spoken in the video: Michael Bloomberg - CEO, Bloomberg L.P. Jane Pauley - American television journalist Brian L. Roberts - CEO, Comcast Warren Buffett - CEO, Berkshire Hathaway Steven Spielberg - American filmmaker Brian Williams - American journalist Deborah Turness - British journalist Steve Burke - CEO, NBCUniversal Matt Lauer - American journalist Robert Redford - American actor Herb Allen - American businessman Phil Griffin - President, MSNBC Credits: John A.

"Tom Brokaw gets his name on NBC facility; newsman fighting cancer Tom Brokaw fondly remembers the seven years he spent in Los Angeles broadcasting KNBC-TV Channel 4's late local news. He arrived in Los Angeles in 1966, in his first NBC News correspondent job, as California was booming. He and his wife built a house at Venice Beach for $105,000. He would ride to assignments on the back of a motorcycle driven by a KNBC cameraman. One day a child greeted him by sliding down NBC's Burbank studio halls — it was Michael Jackson. There he also encountered a Hollywood cowboy, John Wayne, who told him: "Watch ya every night, kid." "It was very hard to leave Los Angeles — even to go cover the White House and Watergate," Brokaw said in an interview with The Times. On Tuesday, Brokaw, 74, is expected to return to his old haunts to be honored by NBCUniversal. The company plans to name its new 150,000-square-foot news facility in Los Angeles the Brokaw News Center. The two buildings, on the edge of the Universal Studios lot just off Lankershim Boulevard, provide the headquarters of the company's West Coast operations of NBC News, CNBC, MSNBC and Spanish-language Telemundo News. The center, which opened this year and provides space for 600 workers, also includes newsrooms for KNBC and Telemundo's KVEA-TV Channel 52. Brokaw has covered some of the biggest news stories of the time, including civil rights, Watergate, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He has covered every presidential election since 1964 and was the anchor of "NBC Nightly News" for more than 21 years until he stepped down December 2004. Since then, he's been doing special reports for NBC News. "I get to have my name on the building, but journalism and broadcasting is really a team effort," Brokaw said. Brokaw disclosed in February that he had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer affecting blood cells in the bone marrow. "I'm happy to report that the treatment appears to be going extremely well, fingers crossed," Brokaw said. Brokaw joins such figures as Abbott and Costello, Alfred Hitchcock, Carl Laemmle and Steven Spielberg in having a building or street on the Universal lot named after him. "The name Tom Brokaw is synonymous with integrity, passion and a commitment to getting the story right," said Steve Burke, chief executive of NBCUniversal. "It is fitting to name this state-of-the-art news center after a true broadcast legend like Tom, who has done so much for journalism and for NBC News." ~ Meg James - Los Angeles Times #NBCUniversal #NBCTV #NBCBurbank #NBCNews #BrokawNewsCenter #TomBrokaw #NBC #Montage #TVC #NBCProductions #Television #TributeVideo #UniversalCity #UniversalStudios #CowMissing

Fox News: Angels Cured Cancer
As America's Christian newsroom, Fox News seems to be on a mission from God (and Roger Ailes) to spread a Christian message that includes divine intercession in the lives of those who pray to angels and "the lord." And, according to Steve Doocy, if you're really special, Fox's main man (along with Roger Ailes) Jesus, will pay you a visit and, ready for it, cure you of cancer. Yesterday, Steve Doocy credulously reported on the story of a young boy who believes that angels helped him through his treatment for cancer which was then cured by Jesus...

Michael's Baccalaureate Speech
My junior year of high school started like one of those movies we’ve all seen. My father scored a job promotion that would move my family and me far from everyone and everything I had ever known in Virginia. I left all my childhood friends and my childhood home. We all tried very hard to get used to our new surroundings, the weather, our new home and school, not knowing that an even greater change was yet to come. The twist in my story started with a trip to the doctor. I stand before you today having just completed an aggressive yearlong treatment for Ewing Sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer. I had a successful surgery that removed a tumor from my chest in addition to three of my ribs and one of my pectoral muscles. People frequently ask me how I maintained a positive attitude throughout these procedures. Let me assure you; the only thing harder than cancer treatment is seeing your parents afraid for the very first time in your life. My parents are from NY and they are tough as nails. I had never seen them afraid of anything. (my dad’s middle name is even Bruno)! Although they were strong throughout my treatment, I also saw the tears my parents shed for me. How could I expect them to be strong if I was not? So I tried hard to be stronger, and when I couldn’t be, I stepped into my shower and washed it all away and down the drain. With cancer comes a lot of “missing.” I was and am still immunity challenged. I will continue to receive treatments at Arnold Palmer Hospital for the next six months to help build my immunity. Because of my year of chemotherapy, I missed the simple luxury of walking around a Target. I missed eating at a restaurant with my family. Even being in a public venue such as this one, is still a risk for me. Cancer made me miss a lot. I missed my entire senior year and all that comes with it, such as my senior prom. I was even missing eyebrows in my photo for the yearbook (though you may not notice them ‘missing’ because my mom had them photoshopped in). The obvious thing for me to do would be to stand here before you and tell you about everything I have overcome to be with you here tonight, but that wouldn’t help you truly understand my journey. It’s not what I did to overcome such a hard obstacle, it’s what I have learned along the way. Live here in the present moment, take each day and meet it head on, don’t let others tell you what you can or can’t do, love those around you deeply and let your mom snap as many photos of you as she wants today (without rolling your eyes). You are all braver than you think. You are not an SAT score, an AP score or a GPA! You must find a way to embrace the individual inside yourself in a world that is ready to put you in a pre-labeled box. I will not live in the cancer survivor box but I will rest it proudly on my mantle because my cancer will not be for naught! This journey has inspired me in ways I could not have foreseen prior to my diagnosis. I want to be a pediatric oncologist so I can help children facing similar challenges. I will have a unique insight into their fight. In a few shorts months, I will begin college at Florida Atlantic University. While Ewing Sarcoma is not my life sentence, it is most certainly my life lesson.

How to Stay Out of Debt: Warren Buffett - Financial Future of American Youth (1999)
Buffett became a billionaire on paper when Berkshire Hathaway began selling class A shares on May 29, 1990, when the market closed at $7,175 a share. More on Warren Buffett: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=9113f36df9f914d370807ba1208bf50b&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=Warren%20Buffett In 1998, in an unusual move, he acquired General Re (Gen Re) for stock. In 2002, Buffett became involved with Maurice R. Greenberg at AIG, with General Re providing reinsurance. On March 15, 2005, AIG's board forced Greenberg to resign from his post as Chairman and CEO under the shadow of criticism from Eliot Spitzer, former attorney general of the state of New York. On February 9, 2006, AIG and the New York State Attorney General's office agreed to a settlement in which AIG would pay a fine of $1.6 billion. In 2010, the federal government settled with Berkshire Hathaway for $92 million in return for the firm avoiding prosecution in an AIG fraud scheme, and undergoing 'corporate governance concessions'. In 2002, Buffett entered in $11 billion worth of forward contracts to deliver U.S. dollars against other currencies. By April 2006, his total gain on these contracts was over $2 billion. In 2006, Buffett announced in June that he gradually would give away 85% of his Berkshire holdings to five foundations in annual gifts of stock, starting in July 2006. The largest contribution would go to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2007, in a letter to shareholders, Buffett announced that he was looking for a younger successor, or perhaps successors, to run his investment business. Buffett had previously selected Lou Simpson, who runs investments at Geico, to fill that role. However, Simpson is only six years younger than Buffett. Buffett ran into criticism during the subprime crisis of 2007--2008, part of the late 2000s recession, that he had allocated capital too early resulting in suboptimal deals. "Buy American. I am." he wrote for an opinion piece published in the New York Times in 2008. Buffett has called the 2007--present downturn in the financial sector "poetic justice". Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway suffered a 77% drop in earnings during Q3 2008 and several of his recent deals appear to be running into large mark-to-market losses. Berkshire Hathaway acquired 10% perpetual preferred stock of Goldman Sachs. Some of Buffett's Index put options (European exercise at expiry only) that he wrote (sold) are currently running around $6.73 billion mark-to-market losses. The scale of the potential loss prompted the SEC to demand that Berkshire produce, "a more robust disclosure" of factors used to value the contracts. Buffett also helped Dow Chemical pay for its $18.8 billion takeover of Rohm & Haas. He thus became the single largest shareholder in the enlarged group with his Berkshire Hathaway, which provided $3 billion, underlining his instrumental role during the current crisis in debt and equity markets. In 2008, Buffett became the richest man in the world, with a total net worth estimated at $62 billion by Forbes and at $58 billion by Yahoo, dethroning Bill Gates, who had been number one on the Forbes list for 13 consecutive years. In 2009, Gates regained the position of number one on the Forbes list, with Buffett second. Their values have dropped to $40 billion and $37 billion, respectively, Buffett having lost $25 billion in 12 months during 2008/2009, according to Forbes. In October 2008, the media reported that Warren Buffett had agreed to buy General Electric (GE) preferred stock. The operation included extra special incentives: he received an option to buy 3 billion GE at $22.25 in the next five years, and also received a 10% dividend (callable within three years). In February 2009, Buffett sold some of the Procter & Gamble Co, and Johnson & Johnson shares from his portfolio. In addition to suggestions of mistiming, questions have been raised as to the wisdom in keeping some of Berkshire's major holdings, including The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) which in 1998 peaked at $86. Buffett discussed the difficulties of knowing when to sell in the company's 2004 annual report: That may seem easy to do when one looks through an always-clean, rear-view mirror. Unfortunately, however, it's the windshield through which investors must peer, and that glass is invariably fogged. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Buffett
