The Euro May Not Be Doomed, But It Is a Disaster

The Euro May Not Be Doomed, But It Is a Disaster | N.W.C | Scoop.it
ReutersHas the euro been a disaster, or what?
It seems pretty self-evident that it has been.

Via Thomas Faltin
Biff Wellington's insight:

The Euro is not in good shape right now. Unemployment is rising in many places and interest rates on the Euro are skyrocketing. This can be good toward the American Dollar. If the Euro is depreciating then the American Dollar is appreciating.  By this happening, this can help our stock because we went short on the Euro toward the American dollar. This means the Euro will go down compared to the dollar, which it should if the Euro keeps getting worse.

Biff Wellington's insight:

This article is dicussing the event that south korea and malaysia did a currency swap thats purpose was to faciltate trade and try to swing currency values. It is interesting that the values were exchanged in terms of U.S dollars, meaning that the world economy basically revolves around our currency.

GARY SHILLING: The Forces Are In Place To Propel The Economy Past Full Employment And Into Serious Inflation

GARY SHILLING: The Forces Are In Place To Propel The Economy Past Full Employment And Into Serious Inflation | N.W.C | Scoop.it
The U.S. government shutdown and debt ceiling have brought uncertainty to the economy that is putting pressure on the Federal Reserve to further delaying the tapering, or gradual reduction, of its stimulative quantitative easing policy.

Via Thomas Faltin
Biff Wellington's insight:

The government shutdown is making economists skeptical of tapering. Business insider Gary Shilling says that tapering should not be worried about in the grand scheme of things. According to Shilling the real problem is not tapering because this involves such little amounts of money. The main problem is the surplus reserves. If these reserves continue into normal growth then the level of inflation will increase exponentially.

Social Media Project Monitors Keywords to Prevent Suicide

Social Media Project Monitors Keywords to Prevent Suicide | N.W.C | Scoop.it

A Boston-based project is using predictive analysis technology to comb through social media posts in hopes of preventing suicide.

 

The opt-in Durkheim Project combines search technology with predictive analysis to estimate the suicide risk of an individual based on what he or she is posting on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Already in collaboration with Facebook, the Durkheim Project is currently gathering social media data from participating active duty military members and veterans.

Still good...

robyns tut's curator insight, October 15, 2013 8:02 AM

This could be really helpful in preventing future incidents of suicide due to cyberbullying or other causes. If the project has success among the US army veterans, we could see it being implimented worldwide.

Deandra Covington's curator insight, June 28, 2014 9:09 PM

This is probably the neatest way to utilize social media to benefit our troops. The Durkhein Project is testing for mental illnesses by analyzing social media communication. Many people with mental illness want to be heard, but that doesn't mean they will just come out and say it or try to get the help they need. By finding key words or phrases, we may be able to eventually find who has PTSD or who is contemplating suicide.


While they have built a complete science around this, my only concern is that they might pinpoint the wrong people every once in a while. If they do, and their command is notified, could it affect their career? I suppose this is dependent on how they decide to deal with alerts if this is implemented. I think it is important to maintain that clinical intervention would be necessary first and only allow the member's command in if it is verified that the person is suicidal. 


With that said, I give tremendous kudos to this project. People that have a mental illness usually try to let people know they need help in some way or another. The Durkhein Project can help us better able to pinpoint these signs.
