Hedge fund Greenlight Capital warns of tech stock bubble 24.4.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
Greenlight Capital Inc., the $10.3 billion hedge fund firm run by David Einhorn, said it is betting against a group of technology stocks as evidence grows of a bubble.

"The current bubble is an echo of the previous tech bubble with fewer larger capitalization stocks and much less public enthusiasm."

The Rochdale Pioneers to Paul Flowers: how the Co-operative dream died 23.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Mounting debts, chaotic governance, controversies over executive pay and a bank chair who has become a laughing stock. The high street chain that once cared for British people from cradle to grave is in dire straits The history of the British Co-operative movement In February 2009, the Co-operative Group announced that Bob Dylan had allowed it to use one of his most treasured songs in a UK TV advert . The work of London agency McCann Erickson, the commercial in question was soundtracked by his 1962 classic Blowin' in the Wind, and was a self-consciously epic affair: two-and-half minutes long, voiced over by the Scottish actor John Hannah, and first shown on ITV at 7.40pm on a Monday night, mid-way through Coronation Street. It began with a boy launching dandelion seeds into the breeze, which then floated over windfarms, arctic glaciers, Fairtrade coffee plantations, and other symbols of the Co-op Group's supposedly towering ethical standards.
