Roger Waters in a visually stunning concert at Scottrade

The show opened with an airplane dropping bombs and then crashing in a fiery explosion. The show ended, for the most part, with the tumbling down of a 75-foot wall made out of large cardboard bricks.
Roger Waters did not put on just an ordinary concert Friday night at the Scottrade Center — he created a huge, technologically complex and metaphorically dense theatrical spectacle.
Waters was a member of Pink Floyd in 1979 when he created "The Wall," a double album that became a stage show so huge it could only then be performed in a few cities, and then a movie. For this tour, Waters and a crack band of hired guns recreate the music of "The Wall" in its entirety, and they perform it as an elaborate ritualistic experience.

Columbia based scientists working on ways to control Asian carp

COLUMBIA, Mo. • The fish tank at the U.S. Geological Survey's Columbia Environmental Research Center looked like it held a swirling black cloud. A school of juvenile Asian carp was clustered together and rapidly rotating from the outside of the school to the inside.
"They hate to be alone," said Robin Calfee, a USGS biologist who studies the carp.
The carp were acting like this because they were frightened; people were standing over their tank. One of the fish had released a chemical signal known as an "alarm cue," and the others reacted accordingly. The group clustered together to protect itself from a potential predator.
USGS biologists want to take advantage of this behavior. In groundbreaking research, Columbia-based scientists are looking at ways to use the carp's alarm pheromones, attraction pheromones or commercial bait scents to control the movement of carp populations that have taken over many Midwest waterways. They believe this research might hold the key to preventing the invasive species from spreading farther.

First Banks losses continue, but problem loans ease

First Banks lost another $47.8 million in the third quarter, but the privately held bank's problems with bad loans eased.
The third quarter's loss was just more than half the $91.1 million lost in the same period a year ago.
The holding company's main unit, First Bank, generally improved its capital position during the quarter, remaining "well capitalized" by regulatory standards. However, the holding company's capital ratios declined and remained below the "well-capitalized" level.

Another city added in Missouri Supreme Court case involving city of Hermann

Springfield City Utilities has been included in a Missouri Supreme Court case that may clarify whether excess municipal utility charges can be used by other city departments.

The case before the Supreme Court involves the city of Hermann, which a local business alleged raised utility rates more than needed and used the excess cash to bolster the city’s general fund.
The business lost the case, but the court’s decision was reversed on appeal and is now before the Supreme Court.

Attorney General Chris Koster filed the “friend of the court” brief today.
It includes utility information from several city audits that State Auditor Susan Montee has done in recent years - including a 2007 audit of City Utilities in Springfield.

Montee and Koster believed the practice violates the state’s Hancock Amendment, which requires a public vote before taxes can be increased.

According to Koster and Montee, the cities of Marcelene, Salem, Farmington, Lebanon and LaPlata also overcharged ratepayers.. Click Here for more info.

Internet Tax for Gasconade Co. Consumers on ballot November 2 a.k.a INTERNET TAX

County use tax on Nov. 2 ballot 
     Gasconade County residents will get a chance to vote on a county-wide use-tax in next Tuesday's election.    Commissioners put the proposition on the November ballot to capture some the sales tax that is being missed on out-of-state sales.    A use-tax imposes a tax on purchases made online and out of state. 
 It would apply only to those who spend more than $2,000  online or outside Missouri in a calendar year.    The use tax does not apply if the purchase is from a Missouri retailer and subject to Missouri sales tax.    The responsibility of remitting use taxes falls on the consumer, but not everyone who buys a pair of shoes or a book online would have to pay the tax. Only those who spend more than $2,000 a year on merchandise from the Internet or out-ofstate vendors are affected.

SHOCK POLL: OBAMA DIPS to 37 APPROVAL...lowest job approval rating of his presidency

President Obama Heads into Midterms at Lowest Approval Rating of Presidency

Two-thirds of Americans believe country going off on the wrong track

NEW YORK , N.Y. - October 25, 2010 - President Obama is spending the next week crisscrossing the country in support of Democratic candidates before this year's midterm elections. While the president may do a great job of energizing the base, he may not be able to convert any Independents who have yet to decide for whom they will vote. Currently, two-thirds of Americans (67%) have a negative opinion of the job President Obama is doing while just over one-third (37%) have a positive opinion. This continues the president's downward trend and he is now at the lowest job approval rating of his presidency.
These are some of the results of The Harris Poll of 3,084 adults surveyed online between October 11 and 18, 2010 by Harris Interactive.

Millions Of Unemployed Americans Now Live As Paupers

October 26, 2010


unemployed7.jpg



Widespread long-term chronic unemployment was something that America was never supposed to see again.


Most Americans still do not understand just how bad the economic horror we are facing really is.  Today, millions of Americans are living as paupers in the land that their foreathers built even as America’s infrastructure is literally being sold out from under their feet by corrupt politicians.  The “official” unemployment rate in the United States has been at nine and a half percent or above for 14 consecutive months, and today it takes the average unemployed American about 35 weeks to find a job.  However, the “official” unemployment rate is misleading, because it does not include workers that have quit looking for work or that have had their hours cut back to part-time.
