Slow Rise Stocks

USA Stocks rose again this week as the reports from real estate front were rosy. The consumers and Best Buy are also on the mend as Best Buy reported their earnings.

According to Strategas Research Partners, the American stock swings have been their lowest in two decades. The summer heat over North America is representing the slow but rising market.

Hybrid Information Superhighway

WAY BACK when I was the representative of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to the National Information Technology Council (NITC), I was already opposing the idea of what was then being proposed as the Philippine Information Infrastructure (PII).
