Ebola and the Russian Military

Ebola crisis rekindles concerns about secret research in Russian military labs - bio war?

"She was an ordinary lab technician with an uncommonly dangerous assignment: drawing blood from Ebola-infected animals in a secret military laboratory. When she cut herself at work one day, she decided to keep quiet, fearing she’d be in trouble. Then the illness struck.

“By the time she turned to a doctor for help, it was too late,” one of her overseers, a former bio­weapons scientist, said of the accident years afterward. The woman died quickly and was buried, according to one account, in a “sack filled with calcium hypochlorite,” or powdered bleach" -

By Tiernan Ray

Shares of Nokia (NOK) are up 41 cents, or almost 6%, at $8.35, continuing pre-market gains, after the company this morning beat Q3 expectations, and raised its profit outlook.

Revenue in the three months ended in September 41%, year over year, to €3.32 billion, yielding €0.09 per share.

Analysts had been modeling €3 billion and €0.07 per share.

Profit, excluding some costs, almost quintupled to €760 million.

Nokia said its “Networks” business unit had 13% revenue growth, to €2.9 billion. The company said the results showed its “strong position in a world where technology is undergoing significant change.”

The company noted several positive factors in the networks business:

Performance at Nokia Networks was particularly satisfying, with both growth and improved profitability. Progress was widespread, with four of our six regions increasing sales; Mobile Broadband sales and profitability were up sharply; Global Services delivered its sixth consecutive quarter of doub…

Ohio Bans International Travel for Residents Being Monitored for Ebola:

Update

Today 1:08 PM ET (Dow Jones) Print

By Ben Kesling

Ohio health officials strengthened the state's Ebola-monitoring protocols Saturday to require that state

residents who are self-monitoring after contact with an Ebola-exposed environment don't leave the U.S.

Ohio residents who monitoring themselves for symptoms of the Ebola virus must also undergo daily

appointments with a health-department official, according to the state's new mandates.

Ohio instituted the ban on international travel for those being monitored citing "the inability to track

them down in the event they fail to meet their daily reporting requirements," according to a statement by

the state's Emergency Operations Department.

State officials said Sunday morning that 73 people are subject to the new regulations and that 52 other

people are self-monitoring but were at the lowest risk of infection, having had no direct contact or

extended time in the same enclosed space as a confirmed patient. Another 28…

Is Warren Buffett Building A Stake In OII (Oceaneering International Inc.)

Image
Oceaneerring International (OII) hit a 52-wk low Friday. The company traded as low as $64.59 and last at $64.92. Volume was at 911,125 shares traded. OII had previously closed at $65.41. Today it has reached even lower levels, and is currently at $60.90.


OII peaked in October of 2013 at $86.27, but for the most part, OII has been a steady climber from it's 1978 days when it traded just bove $1.50.


Aside from recent development news, complete with deals struck and long terms leases, OII has been making the news, or at least the rumor mill, with talk of Warren Buffet slowly building a majority stake in the sleeping Houston based oil and gas giant.


Oceaneering is legendary by the way. They leased the JIM Suit in 1975 (below), and the illustrious Sylvia Earle consulted and took part in their explorations.





Here is a link to an insightful ten year OII chart


OII markets their services and products to oil and gas companies, government agencies, and firms in the aerospace, marine engineering an…

WSJ - THE ARTICLE BEFORE THE CORRECTION

DON'T BE LULLED BY THE MARKET'S SMOOTH RIDE

It's Been A Long Time Since The Last Correction



By Morgan Housel, WSJ



After a five-year surge, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a new all-time high this past week. If you were along for the ride, congratulations.



But here's what's unnerving: It has been more than 700 trading days since the Dow closed 10% below its previous high. That is the fourth-longest run without a drop of that size, known as a correction, since 1929, according to data from S&P Capital IQ.



Some notable market skeptics have abandoned their bearish views. And bearish sentiment among investing newsletters recently hit the lowest level since 1987, according to Bespoke Investment Group, a research firm in Harrison, N.Y.



All this is making some contrarian investors nervous that the market is primed to take a tumble.



"Investors have clearly grown weary of worrying about risky scenarios that never seem to materialize," Seth Klarman, who runs the $…
