Big Board

The oldest and largest stock exchange in the U.S., located on Wall Street in New York City. The Big Board is responsible for setting policy, supervising member activities, listing securities, overseeing the transfer of member seats, and evaluating applicants. It traces its origins back to 1792, when a group of brokers met under a tree at the tip of Manhattan and signed an agreement to trade securities. Unlike some of the newer exchanges, the Big Board still uses a large trading floor in order to conduct its transactions. It is here that the representatives of buyers and sellers, professionals known as brokers, meet and shout out prices at one another in order to strike a deal. This is called the open outcry system and it usually produces fair market pricing. In order to facilitate the exchange of stocks, the Big Board employs individuals called specialists who are assigned to manage the buying and selling of specific stocks and to buy those stocks when no one else will. Of the exchanges, the Big Board has the most stringent set of requirements in place for the companies whose stocks it lists, and even meeting these requirements is not a guarantee that the Big Board will list the company. also called New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).


"Had you rather C?sar were living, and die all slaves, than that C?sar were dead, to live all free men? As C?sar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him." -- Act III, Scene II, Julius Caesar

Friends, Romans, healthcare system, lend me your ears. I come to bury health plans, not to praise them.

If you read the pivotal scene cited above, in which Brutus explains why he slew the beloved Julius Caesar, he explains that while the man may have had many fine qualities, he simply couldn't be allowed to live--since his lust for power was far too great. And that, my friends, is where things may stand with the commercial health industry as it exists today. Much wailing and gnashing of teeth has gone on as to whether the so-called "public option" would cripple health plans by competing on terms they couldn't beat.


market maker

A brokerage or bank that maintains a firm bid and ask price in a given security by standing ready, willing, and able to buy or sell at publicly quoted prices (called making a market). These firms display bid and offer prices for specific numbers of specific securities, and if these prices are met, they will immediately buy for or sell from their own accounts. Market makers are very important for maintaining liquidity and efficiency for the particular securities that they make markets in. At most firms, there is a strict separation of the market-making side and the brokerage side, since otherwise there might be an incentive for brokers to recommend securities simply because the firm makes a market in that security.


Oranges imported to China from the United States reflect a journey come full circle,for the orange had worked its way westward for centuries, originating in China,then being introduced to India,and traveling on to the Middle East, into Europe,and finally to the New World.The history of the wordorange  keeps step with this journey only part of the way. The word is possibly ultimately of Dravidian origin, that is, it comes from a language or languages in a large non-Indo-European family of languages,including Tamil and Telugu, that are spoken in southern India and northern Sri Lanka.The Dravidian word or words were adopted into the Indo-European language Sanskritwith the formn?ra&9{òga?.}  As the fruit passed westward,so did the word,as evidenced by Persiann?rang  and Arabic n?ranj.  Arabs brought the first oranges to Spain,and the fruit rapidly spread throughout Europe.The important word for the development of our term is Old Italianmelarancio,  derived from mela,  “fruit,” and arancio,  “orange tree,” from Arabicn?ranj.  Old Italianmelarancio  was translated into Old French as pume orenge,  theo  replacing the a  because of the influence of the name of the town of Orange, from which oranges reached the northern part of France.The final stage of the odyssey of the word was its borrowing into English from the Old French formorenge.  Our word is first recorded in Middle English in a text probably composed around 1380,a time preceding the arrival of the orange in the New World.


One of history's most devastating earthquakes hit Tangshan, China, on this date in 1976, killing approximately 250,000. The Tangshan Earthquake registered about 8 on the Richter scale; an aftershock registering 7.1 occurred less than a day later, adding to the carnage. Nearly 80% of the industrial buildings and over 90% of the residential buildings in Tangshan were destroyed in the quakes. In nearby Qinglong, where they had been warned some two years earlier of the danger of earthquake, people were taught safety measures. The result: there was a single death — of a heart attack.
Quote: "We learn geology the morning after the earthquake."Ralph Waldo Emerson


Parkinson's Law states: "Work expands to fill the time available for its completion." Having spent time working in the British Civil Service, C. Northcote Parkinson developed a cynical philosophy on bureaucracies and their efficiency, and wrote about it in his book Parkinson's Law: The Pursuit of Progress. He writes of the (in)efficiency of committees in his definition of a Coefficient of Inefficiency. Parkinson, born on this date in 1909, also wrote novels set in the nautical world, including the Richard Delancey series and The Life and Times of Horatio Hornblower.
Quote: "'The Law of Triviality'... briefly stated, it means that the time spent on any item of the agenda will be in inverse proportion to the sum involved."C. Northcote Parkinson


Dinosaurs are back in the news. Earlier this month, the computer-animated film, Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, was released worldwide. Shortly before that, scientists in Australia announced the discovery of the fossils of three new species of the prehistoric creatures. Two plant-eaters and a carnivore, they are the first large dinosaurs to be unearthed since 1981. They date back some 98 million years to the mid-Cretaceous period. Paleontologists believe the meat-eating theropod dinosaur was light, agile and very fleet of foot, with three large slashing claws on each hand. It may have been an ancestor of the carcharodontosaurs, a group of dinosaurs that grew to gigantic proportions, like Giganotosaurus. They say the two herbivore sauropods were different kinds of titanosaur, with one especially tall and giraffe-like, and the other stockier and more hippo-like.
Quote: "The dinosaur's eloquent lesson is that if some bigness is good, an overabundance of bigness is not necessarily better." Eric Johnston


On this date in 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail from Palos, Spain, on a voyage that would take him to the present-day Americas. His trip financed by Ferdinand of Aragón and Isabella of Castile, Columbus sailed across the Atlantic with three ships — the Ni?a, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria — on a quest to show that one could get to India by sailing west. Columbus and his compatriots made landfall somewhere in the Bahamas. Though he is given credit for "discovering America," he didn't get the land named for him; that honor went to Amerigo Vespucci, who led voyages to the area at around the same time as Columbus. Vespucci reasoned that America was not the eastern part of Asia — as Columbus believed — but a new continent.
Quote: "By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination."Christopher Columbus


There are still a lot of villages where people go daily to buy their bread, dairy products, vegetables and staples from a number of small neighborhood shops. In much of the developed world, though, since the introduction of home refrigeration, consumers opt for the convenience of less frequent shopping at the one-stop supermarket. On this date in 1930, Michael J. Cullen opened the first supermarket in the US, the King Cullen Grocery Company, in Queens, NY. It took another three years for the term "supermarket" to make it into the vernacular.
Quote: "I never make a trip to the United States without visiting a supermarket. To me they are more fascinating than any fashion salon."Wallis, Duchess of Windsor


Female drivers get a bum rap. They're often unfairly stereotyped as driving too slowly, too timidly or too erratically. It's assumed that they are the cause of most fender-benders and that if a car was poorly parked, it was parked by a woman driver. However, not all drivers who are women are timid or unskilled. Bertha Benz proved that on this date in 1888, when she became the first person to drive an automobile a long distance: she took her sons on a 60-mile (106-kilometer) trip from Mannheim to Pforzheim to visit her mother. Or so she said. Her ulterior motive was to show her husband Karl — the man who had received the first patent for an automobile — that the car could be marketed to the public as a vehicle for long-distance transportation, good not just for short hops.
Quote: "The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion or ethnic background, is that we all believe we are above-average drivers."Dave Barry


People trying to build their vocabulary often study affixes,a not unreasonable way to proceed.But studying a group of words that share an affix can be fascinating in its own right in the way that studying common features in a photograph of an extended family can be fascinating.The suffix-ling  is Germanic in origin and had several uses already in Old English.For example, it could be added to a noun to make a second noun that referred to something connected with or similar to the first noun;thus, adding the suffix to the Old English wordyrth,  “ploughland,” produced the Old English word yrthling,  “plowman.” The suffix could also be added to an adjective to make a noun that referred to something having the quality denoted by the adjective:from Old Englishd?ore,  “dear, beloved,” was derived d?orling  (Modern English darling ). Adding-ling  to an adverb produced a noun referring to something having the position or condition denoted by the adverb: from Old Englishunder  came underling.  The last use of the-ling  family to be described here was actually borrowed from another Germanic source, Old Norse. The Old Norse version of the-ling  suffix was used to form diminutives; thus, our wordgosling  was a borrowing in Middle English of an Old Norse word, g?slingr,  “gosling.”

想要扩大词汇量的人常常去研究词缀,这不失为一种明智的方式。就象研究一个扩大了的家庭的照片中家人的共同特征一样吸引人,研究一组词缀相同的单词本身可能也会令人意醉神迷。-ling 这一后缀源于日耳曼语, 在中古英语中便已有已几种用法。例如,它可以和一个名词相连形成另一个与之关联或相似的名词;这样,把这个后缀加到古英语单词yrth “耕地”后边便形成了另一古英语单词 yrthling “农夫”。 这个后缀还可以加在一个形容词后边形成具有该形容词所示特征的名词:从古英语单词deore, “亲爱的,被爱的”中派生出 deorling (现代英语中的 darling ) -ling 加在一副词后边可以产生具有该副词所示情况或状态的名词: 从中古英语的under 形成 underling 这里所要描述的-ling 家族的最后一个用法事实上是来源于另一支日耳曼语言,古挪威语。 在古挪威语中-ling 这一后缀被用作小后缀; 这样,我们的单词gosling 便是中世纪英语中的一个外来词,来源于古挪威语单词 goeslingr, “小鹅”


Leo Fender, born on this date in 1909, founded Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, which was responsible for the first mass-produced solid-body Spanish-style electric guitar, the Telecaster; the first mass-produced electric bass guitar, the Precision Bass; and the hit Stratocaster. Fender's idea to build the guitar's neck and body separately made it easier and less expensive to produce and simpler to repair the instruments. Though he had played saxophone at one time, Fender never learned to play the guitar.
Quote: "I went to my friend's house one day, and he had an electric guitar he had just bought with a tiny little amp. I turned the volume up to 10 and I hit one chord, and I said, I'm in love."Ace Frehley


In the US, certain kinds of bills up before Congress often fall by the wayside because of a small item or addendum that was tacked on to the bill. And, conversely, there are items that get passed that perhaps would never have come before the congressional body if they weren't attached to something much more important or timely. Most state governors have the ability to veto a section of a proposed bill, while approving the rest of the bill. The President, however, doesn't have that privilege. In 1996, Congress granted the power of the line-item veto to the president. It was used first by President Bill Clinton on this date in 1997. A year later, the US Supreme Court ruled the president's right to a line-item veto unconstitutional.
Quote: "This we must do as individuals and if we do it as individuals, there is no President of the United States who can veto that decision."Barbara Jordan


The Woodstock Festival closed in upstate New York on this date in 1969. Some 450,000 fans attended the three-and-a-half-day rock music celebration, which was held on Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, NY. The masses of youth showed up for a music and art fair, which turned out to be a rainy few days filled with music, beer and drugs. Though the festival had been conceived as a money-making event, so many people showed up and the event was so disorganized that most of the attendees were let in for free. The organizers ended up over $1 million in debt and had to pay $100,000 just to restore the site. Some of the performers included Joan Baez, Grateful Dead, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Jimi Hendrix, Arlo Guthrie, and The Who.
Quote: "We are stardust, We are golden, And we got to get ourselves back to the garden." — "Woodstock" by Joni Mitchell, who was not at the Woodstock Festival


A century ago today, the first race cars took off around the two-and-a-half mile oval track of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. That first weekend of races was calamitous: because of the gravel and tar surface of the roadway, there were many accidents and five people died. It was decided to pave the track with bricks — 3.2 million of them — and the track received its nickname, "The Brickyard." It's now made of stone and asphalt, with three feet (a bit less than a meter) of bricks remaining at the start and finish line. In 1987, the speedway was named a National Historic Landmark. It seats more than 257,000 people (additional infield seating brings the number up to nearly 400,000), making it the world's largest and highest-capacity sporting facility. The Indy 500 has been held there annually since 1911. In that first Indy 500, winner Ray Harroun's Marmon racecar became the first known automobile to sport what would become known as a rear-view mirror.


Yaba daba doo!! The Flintstones, the first animated show developed for prime time, premiered on ABC-TV on this date in 1960. With characters inspired by The Honeymooners, the show was written to appeal to adults, but kids loved it, too. Its six-year run made The Flintstones the longest-running animated prime time TV show until The Simpsons (which continues to hold the title). As in The Simpsons, guest stars often played caricatures of themselves: for example, Ann-Margret played Ann-Margrock and Tony Curtis appeared as Stony Curtis. In reruns and syndication, the Stone Age cartoon can still be seen somewhere every minute of the day. Alan Reed, who was the original voice of Fred Flintstone, was born on this date in 1907.
Quote: "Flintstones, meet the Flintstones. They're a modern Stone Age family. From the town of Bedrock, they're a page right out of history."The Flintstones theme song, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera


The end of the American Revolution did not mark the end of the conflict between America and Britain. During the Napoleonic Wars, Britain instituted a blockade of French ports, forcing American ships, which were considered neutral, to unload only at British ports. In June 1812, President James Madison declared war on Britain. Most of the fighting took place on the American-Canadian frontier between Detroit and Lake Champlain. But, British forces also made their way inland, fighting in Maine and eventually making their way to Washington, DC. On this date in 1814, the British torched public institutions including the White House, which was burned to the ground. Little was left of the building, other than the kitchen stove and iron accessories. It took three years to rebuild the structure. Architect James Hoban, who had designed the White House, also supervised the rebuilding.
Quote: "The only winner in the War of 1812 was Tchaikovsky."Solomon Short


Allan Pinkerton, the founder of America's first detective agency, was born on this date in 1819. Trained as a cooper, Pinkerton made a career change to investigations after he uncovered and captured a band of counterfeiters in Illinois. He was made Chicago's first police detective, and in 1850 he resigned from the police force to set up his own agency. Pinkerton became famous when he discovered a plot to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln in 1861. Later he was involved in developing the first secret service in the US. He pursued Jesse James, the Dalton gangs and the Wild Bunch, and contracted his men out to corporations with labor problems. In the 1870s, Pinkerton's men infiltrated the Molly Maguires, and were instrumental in having members of the organization tried and hung for murder.
Quote: "A friend to honesty and a foe to crime." Allan Pinkerton

Everyone knows that nurses have a tough job, but getting spit at, hit, pushed or shoved, scratched and kicked is another matter entirely. These are just some of the hazards faced by nurses working the emergency departments of hospitals.  Two in there nurses, two-thirds of nurses.

As is often the case with surgical procedures generally, higher-volume ranked better than lower volume programs, with those handling greater than 375 cases over three years having a 32 percent lower risk of complications than those with less than 75 cases over three years.
