What if neither Mitt Romney nor President Obama wins on Nov. 6?

What if we wake up on Wednesday, and find out that in several states the outcome is in doubt, and neither President Obama nor Mitt Romney is the clear winner? America could be heading for court battles that will make Florida in 2000 look like a tussle at the local PTA.

By Jeremy D. Mayer / October 31, 2012

President Obama, accompanied by American Red Cross President and CEO Gail J. McGovern, speaks at the Red Cross National Headquarters to discuss superstorm Sandy Oct. 30 in Washington. Op-ed contributor Jeremy D. Mayer asks: 'Bigger than any single issue, bigger than the entire agendas of both candidates, looms the question: Can America still peacefully exchange power without bitter controversy and weeks of uncertainty?'

What if neither Mitt Romney nor President Obama is the clear winner on Nov. 6? What if we wake up on Wednesday morning, and find out that in one, three, five, or even more states, the outcome is in doubt, and America is heading for court battles that will make Florida in 2000 look like a tussle at the local PTA?

The possibility of that happening has never been greater. More than 10 states are putting new election laws into effect in this election dealing with voter identification, early voting, or absentee ballots. Other states are altering their election laws in less obvious ways that affect administration. Each of these changes increases the possibility that there will be unintentional errors, confusion, or systemic failure.

Remember the butterfly ballot in Palm Beach? If that one innocent snafu had not been made by a local Democratic election official, Al Gore would have been easily elected.

But there?s more. The parties and outside groups are lawyering up to respond to these changes, and to the fears that the ballots will be tainted.

On the Democratic side, many believe that millions of voters could be disenfranchised by voter identification laws. Or, voter watch groups will challenge legitimate voters in heavily Democratic precincts, tying up the voting process. If challenges push lines to an hour or more to vote, some voters will be unable or unwilling to wait for their chance to cast a ballot for President Obama.

Democrats also worry about widespread registration fraud on the part of Republicans. In battleground Virginia, it seems that a Republican contractor threw away Democratic registration cards. This follows reports that a firm linked to registration fraud worked for the Romney campaign and the Republican Party of North Carolina, another swing state.

On the other side, Republicans seem deeply afraid of voter fraud, from illegal immigrants or from multiple voting by the same persons.

Patrick Moran, son of Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran, resigned from his father?s campaign last week after being secretly recorded by a conservative activist. The congressman?s son seemed to advise the activist, who was pretending to be a supporter, that utility bills could be used to commit voter fraud.

These largely phantom fears about voter fraud will motivate Republicans to police the polls with unprecedented fervor. As was revealed to many voters in 2000, America, unlike most advanced democracies, does not have, in most states, a nonpartisan election administration system. Instead, elected or appointed partisans are typically in charge of elections. This is such a bad idea, that when we set up quasi-democracies in Afghanistan and Iraq, we didn?t copy our own system.

And unlike almost all other advanced democracies, America has a creaky, state and locally run election system that is woefully underfunded and can be inaccurate. For some widely used voting methods, the fail rate, in which a voter?s intent is unable to be ascertained, is well above 2 percent of ballots cast, which would be an outrage in western Europe. The fail rate is even higher for absentee ballots, as is the risk of fraud.

Ryan leads unbeaten Falcons over Eagles 30-17

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ? Asante Samuel stared directly at his former team's sideline and started trash-talking right after the coin toss. By the fourth quarter, Samuel was dancing on the field between plays.

Matt Ryan made it easy for his loquacious teammate to gloat.

Ryan threw touchdown passes on Atlanta's first three possessions against the Eagles and new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, and the Falcons remained the NFL's only unbeaten team with a convincing 30-17 win over Philadelphia on Sunday.

"We're 7-0 over here baby," Samuel said. "If I was over there now, they have to go to work."

The Falcons are 7-0 for the first time in the franchise's 47-year history while the Eagles (3-4) lost after a bye for the first time in 14 games under coach Andy Reid since 1999.

"That was an embarrassing performance," Reid said. "I'm stating the obvious. We need to get better. I need to do a better job. This is fixable. We have the talent."

Ryan finished 22 of 29 for 262 yards and three TDs for his first win against his hometown team in three tries.

Michael Vick didn't turn the ball over for once, but he played so-so and failed to beat his former team in his second start against the Falcons since returning to the NFL in 2009.

"Whatever decision coach makes, I support it," Vick said when asked about possibly being benched for rookie Nick Foles. "I know I'm giving it everything I have when I'm out there."

Reid said he's going to evaluate whether he makes a quarterback change. The defense was the problem against Atlanta, however.

The Falcons scored on their first six possessions before punting for the first time with 5:35 left.

"When you do that, it's going to be a good day," Ryan said.

This was a validation win for Atlanta. The Falcons entered with no victories over a team with a winning record and their opponents were a combined 13-24 going into this weekend. Perhaps that's why they were a surprising 3-point underdog despite Philadelphia's recent struggles.

"We like to have a lot of fun," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "We have a very mature group. We have a bunch of guys who are mentors. We're good at focusing on the task at hand. We're on point when we kick off and guys have done a good job focusing all season."

Reid's Eagles have lost three in a row since starting 3-1. Reid fired Juan Castillo and replaced him with Bowles two days after Philadelphia blew its second straight fourth-quarter lead in an overtime loss to Detroit.

Clearly, it didn't work.

Castillo's defense allowed 18.5 points per game, excluding two TD returns against the offense. Bowles' D allowed 21 points in the first 24 minutes and couldn't make a stop until the fourth quarter.

"I did what I did and what I thought was right at the time," Reid said about the switch. "We need to get better there."

A sellout crowd anticipating a pending storm expected to hit the East Coast soon started filtering out in the third quarter. Those who stuck around booed the Eagles off the field, though one guy chanted "E-A-G-L-E-S" in the final minute.

The anti-Reid fans may be seeing him in his final months with the team. Owner Jeffrey Lurie already stated before the season that another 8-8 finish would be "unacceptable."

The Falcons methodically drove 80 yards on 16 plays on the opening possession, converting five third downs. A holding call on defensive end Jason Babin kept the drive going after Ryan threw an incomplete pass on third-and-10. Ryan then threw a 15-yard TD pass to Drew Davis for a 7-0 lead.

Ryan tossed a 3-yard TD pass to Jason Snelling to make it 14-0. Penalties on Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Mychal Kendricks on separate third downs kept Atlanta's drive going.

After going three-and-out on the first series, the Eagles put it together on the next drive by mixing in seven runs among their 13 plays. LeSean McCoy scored from the 2 to cut it to 14-7.

But the Falcons answered quickly. Ryan connected with Julio Jones over Nnamdi Asomugha for the 63-yard score to put Atlanta up 21-7.

Atlanta converted their first nine third-down tries, including three by penalty. The Eagles finally held in the final minute of the second quarter and Matt Bryant's 43-yard field goal gave the Falcons a 24-7 halftime lead. Bryant kicked field goals of 29 and 30 on the next two drives.

The Eagles made it 30-17 on Vick's 7-yard TD pass to McCoy in the fourth quarter.

Samuel had 25 interceptions and went to three Pro Bowls in four seasons in Philadelphia before the acquisitions of Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie forced him out. He was traded to the Falcons for a seventh-round pick in April and enjoyed his return to Lincoln Financial Field.

"I love the fans," he said. "They can boo me. They can cheer for me. Doesn't do anything but add fuel to the fire."

NOTES: The Falcons won in Philadelphia for the first time since Oct. 30, 1988. They were 0-6 with two playoff losses. ... Neither team had a turnover. ... The Eagles got their first sack in four games since Week 3. ... Eagles rookie Dennis Kelly took his first snap in the NFL, starting for the injured Danny Watkins (ankle) at RG. ... Kendricks was benched for the first series for disciplinary reasons. Casey Matthews took his place at strongside LB. ... Falcons coach Mike Smith moved past Dan Reeves into first place on the club's all-time list with 50 wins.

New York police officer charged with plan to cook, eat women

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York City police officer was charged on Thursday with conspiring to kidnap, torture, cook and eat women whose names he kept in a list on his computer.

Gilberto Valle III, 28, of Forest Hills, Queens, was arrested on Wednesday by the FBI, a spokesman for the agency said.

In a criminal complaint unsealed on Thursday in Manhattan federal court, Valle was charged with conspiring to cross state lines to kidnap and with illegally accessing a federal database.

The complaint said investigators had uncovered a file on Valle's computer containing the names and pictures of at least 100 women, as well as the addresses and physical descriptions of some of them.

The complaint said that Valle had undertaken surveillance of some of the women at their work and at their home.

In an excerpt of a July conversation with an unnamed co-conspirator, Valle is quoted in the complaint as saying: "I can just show up at her home unannounced, it will not alert her, and I can knock her out, wait until dark and kidnap her right out of her home."

"I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus... cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible." The woman in question is identified only as "Victim 1."

Valle was not charged with carrying out any of the alleged planned attacks, according to the charges, suggesting he was arrested before any of the targeted women were harmed.

A lawyer for Valle could not immediately be identified.

A spokesman for the New York Police Department could not immediately be reached for comment.

Washington Reminds Workers of New Workers' Comp Provider ...

The Department of Labor & Industries(L&I) is sending 45,000 letters to injured workers this week letting them know whether or not their doctor has joined the new workers? compensation medical network.

The medical provider network is part of the historic 2011 workers? comp reforms designed to improve outcomes for injured workers and cut costs for the state?s workers? compensation program. Network doctors will treat injured workers covered by L&I as well as by self-insured employers.

When the network begins Jan. 1, 2013, an injured worker can still see any doctor for their initial office or emergency room visit, but for additional care, they will need to transfer to a medical provider in the new L&I network.

?We have about 6,000 doctors in our network and we expect to have many more by the time we launch the network on January 1,? said Vickie Kennedy, L&I?s chief policy advisor. ?The new network will help injured workers get the best possible care and return more workers to good health and their jobs.?

Anyone can check to see if their doctor is in the medical provider network by visiting, an online directory that is updated daily.

Workers whose doctors are already in the network, or whose applications to join are being processed, do not need to take any action. But injured workers whose doctors have not yet applied to join should encourage their doctors to do so.

Any workers with an open claim will need to move to a doctor in the network no later than Jan. 1, 2013. L&I will help workers covered by the state workers? comp plan who have trouble finding a new medical provider. Workers whose claims are managed by their self-insured employers or third-party administrators should contact those companies directly.

Those providers required to be in the network include: physicians, chiropractors, naturopathic physicians, doctors of podiatry, advanced registered nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists and optometrists.

Workers can continue to see out-of-state providers and other providers not on this list, until those practices are asked to join the network.

The coming change is important not just for injured workers, but for medical providers as well. That?s because those providers who are not in the network won?t be paid for treating injured workers, except for the initial office or emergency room visit when a claim is filed.

L&I invites all of the provider types listed above to apply to its open network. All qualified providers who meet network requirements are being accepted.

In addition to the network, the 2011 reform legislation expands access to the state?s Centers of Occupational Health (COHEs) and directs L&I to offer incentives to providers that use best practices for occupational health. These reforms are expected to save $218 million over the next four years.

Kyrgyz protesters demand closure of Chinese gold mine


October 23, 2012

With resource nationalism rising in Kyrgyzstan, over 200 people joined a demonstration on October 22 in the Kemin district calling for Superb Pacific Limited's operations at its gold mine be shut down.

The demonstration took place outside the Chinese mining company's headquarters in Orlovka. Demonstrators claim that Superb illegally fired several Kyrgyz workers, and polluted the local environment, RFE/RL reports.

Kyrgyzstan has recently seen a wave of protests against international mining companies. The most serious was a demonstration led by the opposition Ata-Zhurt party calling for the nationalisation of the country's largest gold mine on October 3. Around 1,000 people joined the demonstration against Centerra Gold's operation of Kutamor, which ended in clashes with police when Ata-Zhurt leader Kamchibek Tashiyev and around 40 supporters attempted to break into the White House ? the presidential seat in Bishkek.

In September, around 100 residents of the Jalal-Abad region attacked a workers' camp belonging to Spektr, a construction company building a road to the Charaat gold mine, and seized the company's equipment. They claimed that heavy trucks serving the project had damaged local roads.

The Island

Hi All!

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in an RP based off of the 2005 movie The Island? I have never been a GM before, so it'd be awesome if I could get someone to help me out on that part. I am on RPG daily and I'd like to get a committed group of RPers together that could post at LEAST twice a week.

Anyway, here are the few thoughts I have for this at the moment:

Players could be:


There is one clone in particular that goes against the grain. It starts out a little at first, but then s/he starts asking more and more questions, pulling more of the other clones into the fray. There may be a few security members or a doctor or two that would help out the clones if they decided to revolt.

It's a very basic idea at the moment, but if anyone is interested in helping me further develop it, that would be awesome. Please let me know if you're interested!

Sharp says boosts IGZO display output; shares soar

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Sharp Corp said it has boosted output of its IGZO displays, the thin, power-saving screens that the struggling TV maker wants to sell to ultrabook PC makers to spark a revival in its fortunes.

Shares of Sharp gained as much as 11 percent to 165 yen in early trading, their biggest one-day gain in almost two months, after local media earlier reported the increase in production capacity.

Sharp is seeking supply agreements with ultrabook makers Lenovo Group , Dell Inc and Hewlett-Packard , Kyodo news agency reported.

The Japanese company, which secured $4.6 billion in emergency loans from its banks in September, this month began producing IGZO screens at a liquid crystal display factory in Nara prefecture western Japan, Sharp spokeswoman Miyuki Nakayama confirmed.

"We are starting in two different plants. The volume is increased," she said.

Sharp already makes IGZO displays that it supplies for Apple Inc's iPad tablet at its Kameyama plant. The facility also makes screens for the iPhone 5.

Sharp says IGZO, which consume 10 percent to 20 percent of the power required by conventional panels, may be better suited for ultrabooks. Needing less backlighting, IGZO screens are also thinner than conventional LCD displays.

Intel is promoting ultrabooks to counter tablet computers from Apple. Earlier this year, the U.S. chipmaker signed deals with several panel makers to ensure adequate supplies for a wave of ultrabooks with touch screens expected to hit the market following Microsoft Corp's launch of Windows 8 this month.

Giants beat Cardinals 9-0, advance to World Series

Score and situation: They may have used the most painful (and wet) route to get there, but the torture-minded San Francisco Giants are headed back to the World Series. A 9-0 romp over the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals in Game 7 of the NLCS on Monday night earned the Giants a Fall Classic date with the Detroit Tigers and ran the team's record in elimination games to 6-0 this postseason. The final out came as rain poured down on AT&T Park and ended in an appropriate fashion as Matt Holliday popped out to Game 2 run-in mate Marco Scutaro.

The Giants are the 11th team in postseason history to overcome a 3-1 deficit in a seven-game series and the first since the 2007 Boston Red Sox came back to beat the Cleveland Indians in the ALCS. (St. Louis fans should be familiar with such heartbreak. The 1996, '85 and '68 Cardinals also blew 3-1 leads while going on to lose the series.)

Leading lads: Scutaro capped ?off his series MVP performance with a 3 for 4 night and led a Giants lineup that saw every starter notch at least one hit. Brandon Belt put an exclamation point on the whole affair, launching a moonshot home run to right field in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The numbers of Giants starter Matt Cain were not eye-popping, but the righthander did exactly what he needed to do, striking out four and spreading five hits and a walk over 5 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball. Four relievers ? Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Casilla, Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo ? then took the team the rest of the way home.

(Getty Images)Head hangers: Kyle Lohse answered a lot of questions for the Cardinals this season, but the free agent-to-be bombed in what might be his last start for St. Louis. The 34-year-old righthander gave up five earned run and failed to record an out in the third inning before getting yanked. The six relievers behind him hardly faired any better, though it didn't make a difference with the offense the Cardinals had been sending to the plate. St. Louis was shut out for the second time in three games and managed only one run in its Game 6 defeat.

St. Louis rookie shortstop Pete Kozma had a particularly bad night, breaking the wrong way on a key play, making a bad throw home on another and going 0 for 3 with two strikeouts at the plate.

Key play: Hunter Pence's awkwardly-hit double faked out Kozma and brought home a total of three runs to start the five-run third inning.

Interesting stat: Though the NLCS went seven games, it featured only one lead change and that was when Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the third in Game 3. San Francisco outscored St. Louis 27-2 in its four wins while St. Louis outscored San Francisco 17-8 in its three victories.

What they'll be talking about: How do the Giants keep on doing this? They overcame a 2-0 deficit in the NLDS to beat the Cincinnati Reds and have now staged a 3-1 comeback against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the first Game 7 victory in Giants postseason history. The collapse has to sting for Cardinals fan, though the bitter feelings will eventually be softened with more viewing of that 2011 World Series title DVD and a great organization that produces postseason trips on a frequent basis.

What's next: The Giants will welcome the Detroit Tigers to AT&T Park for Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night. It's the second time in three years that the Fall Classic will begin in San Francisco.

Are you ready for the World Series?

Wider Music Community: Fines for those who download music - Artipot

Oct 20, 2012

All over the world people listen to music, make new bands and want to discover new music. They sell music online as they learn how to promote a band. The trouble is, most of the audio samples are illegal download music and this is causing a terrible crisis in the music distribution industry. It is important for the music community not just to concentrate on what's going on in our spheres of music distribution. We must also understand what the wider music community is doing. It's important that the music community take responsibility for music distribution. We need to take charge. We need to buy and sell music online so there can even be a music distribution industry. How can musicians eat if they aren't paid for their work? Even when they sell music online it gets plagiarized. It's a very difficult situation. So what can the music community do?! Japan's music community has been debating this in recent weeks. Japan's recording industry strongly backs criminal treatment of those who download music illegally, while lawyers and media say it may be too harsh to punish people for pirating audio samples. A revision to Japan's copyright law to impose criminal penalties on those who illegally download music and movies has sparked debate in the country over how to manage the rapidly changing music distribution industry. We all love to listen to music, discover new bands and share new music. But we as a music community need to be wary of the danger to the new bands and new music if we download music illegally. Music distribution is an industry like all the others. Why do we think it's different for musicians? They want to sell music online so that they can make money to live. Should we punish them for doing something they love rather than just working in offices like everyone else. Maybe we're just jealous? On Wednesday, says one article, Japan's parliament passed a measure to revise the law so that to download music illegally is a criminal activity, punishable by up to two years in jail or a fine of up to ?2 million (US$25,000). The revisions will go into effect from October. Currently violations are considered a civil matter. The drastic increase in punishment for what could be as little as a single track of download music was highlighted in the Japanese media. The Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan's largest newspaper, ran an article about the law Thursday with a headline that read "Even one click is now a crime?" While online streaming and download music services like Hulu and iTunes are popular in Japan, sales and rentals of physical CDs and DVDs are still common. Years after U.S. video rental firms like Blockbuster went bankrupt, Japanese equivalents like Tsutaya are still widely used. The Recording and music distribution Industries of Japan, a powerful new music trade group, immediately applauded the new measure, and said it would work to inform people of the new penalties. "This revision will reduce the spread of copyright infringement activities on the Internet," said Chairman Naoki Kitagawa, who is also the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Japan. But the Japan Federation of Bar Associations, a widely respected legal group, said that the law treating downloads as a civil matter, which was adopted in 2009, should have been given more time for its effectiveness to be judged. "Treating personal activities with criminal punishments must be done very cautiously, and the property damage caused by individual people who download music illegally is highly insignificant," the group said in a statement. A study published by the Recording Industry of Japan found that in 2010 about 4.36 billion files of download music were taken illegally, about ten times the 440 million files that were paid for. The study found that in Japan, dedicated video download sites are far more popular than peer-to-peer software, which can be harder to trace. We as the music community should understand that new bands cannot be made if we continue to download music illegally. The new music will simply not be made if the artists can't sell music online. The music distribution industry will be killed along with the creativity. The time is now, music community, to stand up and do something about it so that new bands will be able to have a future. They will also need to learn how to promote a band in the age of audio samples, though! It's not just about sticking with the status quo. To sell music online in this day and age is the only way to make any money. People are not buying CDs anymore. But how do we stop people from stealing download music? Music websites like are doing their part to win the war on illegal audio samples. Now, music community, what are you going to do?

Reverse brain drain pulls Brazilians home, and Europeans with them

Reverse brain drain means twofold "brain gain" for Brazil as the global recession pulls native Brazilians home and, with them, a wave of European migrants leaving their austerity stricken homelands.

By Sara Miller Llana,?Staff writer / October 21, 2012

Miguel Lago works at the nongovernmnetal organization Meu Rio (My Rio), in Rio de Janeiro. He left Brazil to go to Columbia University in New York and returned in the global reverse brain gain when the economy in his home country turned around. This is part of the "Great Brain Gain" cover-story project in the Oct. 22 issue of The Christian Science MonitorWeekly magazine.

Melanie Stetson Freeman


When school friends Alessandra Orofino and Miguel Lago were growing up here in the 1990s, their hometown wasn't where they envisioned getting an auspicious start to their futures. It was depressed, dirty, and violent. So like thousands of Brazilians with means, they headed abroad for college ? both to Europe, and she, later, to the United States.

"When I left, people said, 'You are never going to come back,' " says Ms. Orofino, who graduated from Columbia University in New York City.

Both friends ? like many immigrants around the globe ? figured they'd have careers abroad, returning home much later. They were part of the classic brain drain in which human capital flows from developing to developed nations.

But as they began college in the mid-2000s, the Brazilian economy was starting to boom, with a rising middle ? and consuming ? class. Indeed, by 2009, when Rio won the bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics, Brazil was an economic magnet for investment and "brain gain" migration. It was no longer a place to flee.

Now, not only is the Brazilian diaspora reconsidering its exile, but educated Europeans, fleeing economic recession, are flocking here.

Orofino and Mr. Lago returned in 2011 and started a nongovernmental organization ? Meu Rio (My Rio) ? to foster citizen promotion of transparency and good government in this era of explosive and lucrative growth in Rio.

"I saw the way that France's public services work, [and] for the first time in my life I experienced what was possible," says Lago, who studied at Sciences Po in Paris. "I thought, we have to fight for that in Brazil."

As Meu Rio opened its doors, Portuguese engineer Francisco Cruz saw firms around him downsizing as projects dried up. So he left his job in Portugal to relocate in Rio, which was drawing up blueprints for stadiums, bridges, and tunnels.

It was "riskier to stay in Portugal with a job than to move to Brazil without one," says Mr. Cruz, who got his first employment interview on his second day here and within a month was on the job at a firm designing Rio's bus transit system for the Olympic Games. The firm now is bidding on an Olympic Park project.

UN: Southern Africa food shortages worsen

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) ? The United Nations deputy humanitarian chief says food shortages are "a chronic problem" in southern Africa and more than 5.5 million people in eight countries need aid this year, a 40 percent increase compared to 2011.

Catherine Bragg, winding up a five-day southern Africa trip Saturday, said worsening food shortages are the result of drought or floods and rising world food prices.

In Zimbabwe, 1.6 million people are affected by food shortages and many rural families have begun selling village livestock, often kept as a symbol of status and wellbeing, to cope with the "dire situation," Bragg said.

A decade of seizures of commercial farms has disrupted food production in Zimbabwe, a former regional breadbasket.

Food shortages are also particularly acute in Lesotho, Malawi and Swaziland, Bragg said.

This Candy Is From Heaven (But Don't Eat It)

Pop quiz: What is this thing?

Can you guess what this is? Mark Mauthner /Heritage Auctions

Mark Mauthner /Heritage Auctions

Maybe it's because Halloween is right around the corner, but our first thought was, candy! Specifically, nougat ? a confection made with nuts suspended in egg whites and sugar or honey. In Spain, it's called turron; in Italy, torrone. In the Provence region of France, it's one of 13 de rigueur desserts traditionally served during Christmas. Iranians have a version called gaz, sweetened with the sap of the desert plant gaz-angebin.

Nougat has been around for centuries. But what we're looking at is a whole lot older ? and more heavenly.

It's a chunk of the Fukang Meteorite, found in China's Gobi Desert in 2000. Those enticing shiny "nuts" are bits of the mineral olivine, encased in a matrix of nickel-iron. This little beauty, a rarer type of meteorite called a pallasite, is 4.5 billion years old ? a leftover from the birth of our solar system.

The nougat doppelganger was one of many meteorites up for auction last Sunday in New York. Asking price started at $100,000.

Alas, no one bit.

"It did not sell," says meteorite dealer Darryl Pitt, "and so we ate it, so to speak."

Perhaps it was because, as meteorite expert Meenakshi Wadhwa explains, it only looks like candy in pictures. In person, she tells The Salt, "it's clearly metal and stone."

Braking, now steering: Is Nissan driving for us?

Nissan has announced an 'Autonomous Emergency Steering System,' that can steer a vehicle to safety if a driver can't. Is this bringing us closer to fully self-driving cars?

By Richard Read,?Guest blogger / October 20, 2012

A Nissan Mixim concept car is exhibited at the Wuhan Motor Show, Hubei province Oct. 12. On the heels of a new emergency braking system, Nissan has announced an emergency self-steering feature.



Nissan?has been on a high-tech run the past several days. On Friday, the automaker announced its?"Emergency Assist for Pedal Misapplication" system, which can apply the brakes when drivers hit the gas by mistake. And on Monday, we heard about a new?rear-facing camera on the 2013 Altima?that warns of lane-departures, watches your blind spot, and, of course, serves as a backup camera.

Now, Nissan has debuted yet another high tech feature: the "Autonomous Emergency Steering System", which brings us one step closer to fully self-driving vehicles.

How it works

We've all been in situations where we've been forced to hit the brakes because traffic has suddenly come to a stop or because a slower driver has jumped into our lane. Occasionally, we've even had to swerve to the side of the road or into another lane to avoid rear-ending the?car?in front of us. These are terrifying, life-flashing-before-your-eyes kind of moments.

Nissan's?Autonomous Emergency Steering System?doesn't make such situations any less harrowing, but it can handle all that?braking?and steering on its own. And since the system can never be distracted by text messages or spills of hot coffee, it's always on the lookout for danger -- meaning that it may notice problems earlier and bring your car to a more gentle stop.

The Autonomous Emergency Steering System relies on one radar/camera combo up front, two radar detectors on the sides, and five laser scanners strategically placed around the vehicle. When the system identifies a problem ahead that requires immediate braking, it checks for obstacles in front, alongside, and behind the vehicle, then shows the driver where he or she ought to steer.

That in itself isn't too different from the brake-assist safety devices currently found on other vehicles. The difference in?Nissan's?case is that if the driver doesn't respond -- perhaps because of a distraction, a medical emergency, or dozing off --?the system will take over and steer the vehicle to safety.

Nissan's Vision Zero

Like its Emergency Assist for Pedal Misapplication, the Autonomous Emergency Steering System?is part of Nissan's Vision Zero?safety?plan, which aims to eliminate most traffic fatalities and injuries by the year 2025. In Japan, the U.S., and the U.K., the program is well ahead of schedule.?

Unlike Emergency Assist, though, Nissan has given no indication when or where the Autonomous Emergency Steering System might first appear. It's possible that it, too, may debut in Japan on the?Nissan?Elgrand?luxury?van, then roll out to other markets and models.

From where we sit, Nissan's?Autonomous Emergency Steering System?moves us step further down the road toward fully autonomous vehicles. Does it interest you? Is it the sort of thing you'd be willing to purchase as part of a safety package upgrade?

Is it possible to get a HARP 2.0 refinance with a high dti? - Zillow ...

The simple answer is yes, you can get a HARP loan approved with a high DTI, it just depends how high. HARP loans allow for higher than normal DTI ratios for conventional loans. But it doesn't allow for unlimited DTI. I have personally seen them approved at 60%, with an EA/Expanded Approval, but no higher.?

No lender will be able to?count?boarder income. They could use it as a compensating factor, but HARP loans are not manually underwritten (they are underwritten by Fannie/Freddie's automated systems) so that doesn't really make a difference.

If Chase can't do it for you and DTI is the issue something will have to change in your debt ratio. Moving out is not a good idea, as the rental income would not be able to be used for qualifying right away anyways. And if if it could you could only use a maximum of 75% of the actual income against the payment.

But maybe there is an expense you can get rid of? How many cars do you have? Can you pay off a credit card? Something like that?
