But of major currencies, Japan is seeing the slowest growth in M2 money supply. It is strengthening vis-s-vis all other major currencies. The collapsing desire to use credit (creation of money) and the death of money servicing interest amounts to the quantity of Yen growing the slowest. Strength!?!
Over the next week Brown used the Numi card to purchase coffee and groceries. Five days later, she was charged $5.95 for a monthly service fee and then 95 cents for a declined service charge.

The Pollyanna Delusion (richcabot)
According to “One Internet,” we’re facing a crisis. (All polemics begin with a crisis—sometimes it’s real, but more often, as in this case, it’s manufactured.) We purportedly face three possible futures: (1) a broken Internet; (2) a sub-optimal Internet; and (3) an Internet that is “energetic, vigorous and healthy.” The latter option comes with an implied happy face of course.
Let’s parse out these three options.
Facebook continues its war on clickbait (jdargis)
In a post today, Facebook said that its current plan of attack involved cataloging “tens of thousands” of headlines, which were then analyzed by a team of employees that decided if the headlines withheld pertinent information or were misleading about the accompanying article. The team apparently double-checked its work, and “from there, we built a system that looks at the set of clickbait headlines to determine what phrases are commonly used in clickbait headlines that are not used in other headlines,” Facebook wrote in a press release today. “This is similar to how many e-mail spam filters work.”
“There are more and more people piling on to the internet and the number of entities pumping out material keeps growing,” says Mikkelson, who turns out to be a wry, soft-spoken sleuth. “I’m not sure I’d call it a post-truth age but … there’s been an opening of the sluice-gate and everything is pouring through. The bilge keeps coming faster than you can pump.”

A CNN poll released Monday showed Clinton with a 52 percent to 43 percent lead over Trump in an head-to-head matchup taken after the Republican and Democratic conventions. Hours after the latest poll numbers were released, Trump told a crowd in Columbus, Ohio, that he worries the general election in November will be “rigged” against him, launching a fresh attack on the legitimacy of a U.S. system his candidacy is premised on upending.
There are plenty of helpful microbes in soil already, some supplied by various dead plant matter and some by living plants. Ideally, a sustainable system uses crop rotation—swapping out crops every now and then—to replenish the microbes drained by one crop. But this is not the way things are done in corporate agriculture these days: monocropping is the norm, and those crops are even of the same specific varieties within the overall category of, say, corn.
