Daily Financial Crisis Recap 30.10.2008

Consumers are already feeling the next crisis, the credit card crunch. It’s normal. In North America, people live beyond their means thanks to credit cards. That’s how people accumulate thousands of dollars of bad debt.

The money is disappearing out of AIG. Analysts wonder where the $123 billion went.

The biggest portion of the Fed loan is apparently being used as collateral for A.I.G.’s derivatives contracts, including credit-default swaps.

Doesn’t sound good. That and exec pay. However, they were asked by Cuomo to halt any bonuses or exec compensation

The economy is showing signs of a slowdown. No shit. It’s at the lowest it has been 17 years. The Dow was up thanks to a report on the economy. It finished at 9,180.69, a gain of 189.73 or 2.11%. This morning, stocks are up as well. The Fed lowered its key interest rate by half a percentage point. Taiwan and a few other Asian countries followed suit.

Japan plans to invest $51 billion into their economy.

6 KM

Well, I’m disappointed that my right knee is still bugging me. Tonight during our run, it was the outside of my knee that was acting up. The back tendon wasn’t as sore. Still it slowed me down considerably. I ran a shorter distance though, which was actually what was recommended for me. If it continues like this, I won’t be able to take part of the running workouts with the triathlon team, which are demanding physically.

I’m a lot slower than before as well. I completed 6 km in 35:24. I usually run 7.8 km in 42 minutes. 9.2 in 47. This is really slow. Also, I have to take frequent brakes because my knee is acting up. I might see a physiotherapist tomorrow to see what’s up with that.

This is the route we took to the oval. We ran another 1.6 km there. The good news is that yesterday, my left knee was hurting more. My left was sore. My left knee was fine today. Hopefully by the weekend, I’m going to be feeling faster. It’s really annoying to run so slow.

Dexter stars Michael C. Hall, most known for his role as David in the HBO drama Six Feet Under. Michael C Hall plays Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter specialist working in Miami for the police.

It’s the season premiere of Dexter. Lila is dead. Dexter is back at work. His life with Rita is going well. Dex does something stupid when he moves in to kill Freebo. He kills someone else. He wasn’t prepared to find out who it was he killed. At least no one is on Dex’s case.

Dex is able to move on, to get by his father’s death while Deb is still stuck. I thought that this was a great way to start the third season of Dexter. I recommend this show, it was filled with interesting bits.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
