Meatman, I live in a place where smoked meat is practically unknown and would like to build my own smoker. There are lots of designs and plans on the Internet, but it looks very much like you would be the voice of experience in such things. Any advice on a design of a wood-burning smoker?

Bad news. The only way this makes sense is if Shell is really in trouble.
There are only two viable GTL process designs in the world. Shell and Sasol each have proprietary and patented technologies. So Shell does not have to pay royalties as does everyone else save Sasol. If they still can't aff...

If you're spending a lot of money for a trip and it's as important as your honeymoon, a good travel agent can save you money and headaches.

Lots of US airlines have problems but the reason I don't fly Delta (or their partner KLM) is because Delta's Customer Service department does not care.
I had confirmed reservations that were cancelled 'by the computer automatically' for unknown reasons.

But the mistake was Hitler's. A classic underestimation of his foe. That and declaring war on the US when he d...

Damn, getting 5 to 6% in this market would be all you could ask. Yes, the short term rates would eventually get you when rates increase, but as you point out, ZIRP will control this end of the curve longer.

Thanks Benny. Appreciate the enlightenment as always.
I'm guessing with ZIRP controlling the steepness of the curve but not the levels, roll down will continue to be the play. Could the resulting total return for the 10 year issues be in the (maximum) 5 to 6% range, duration/coupon returns plus r...

Ask yourself who's driving this - Saban or Sexton? Because it makes a big difference.
The motivation for Sexton is money. That's why if you see Sexton behind this, it's just the annual holdup.
For Saban however, the motivation is power and control and very little else. Yes, both schools have ...
