    Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.

    Interesting article taking about most silver miners having production costs greater than silver market price. This can't go on forever https://srsroccoreport.com/majority-of-silver-miners-sustaining-cost-significantly-higher-than-market-price/ Now, according to the silver mining companies All-In Sustaining Costs (AISC), only two were lower than the current silver market price: When I put together this chart, the silver price was trading at $14.02 but has jumped up to $14.17 as the broader markets continue to sell off. However, as we can see, seven of the nine top primary silver miners AISC is higher than the silver market price (BLUE BAR). The highest AISC of $22.39 per ounce is awarded to SSR Mining which changed its name from Silver Standard. SSR Mining is mostly a gold mining company with a very high-cost open-pit silver mine in Argentina called their Puna Operations

    Bye bye Treason May?

    They don't have a majority. I know what you mean, but people forget that they have only had a proper majority for 2 of the last 20 years.

    She's always been like that. They made corbyn wear a suit, why didn't anyone tell her to stretch out her back and maybe get some massages. She never looked confident.

    Sanjeev Gupta + Liberty House

    I've worked with guys in the steel industry and they say his products are crap. Whats worst is they import slab from their production plant in the other side of the world.

    I don't really follow his logic. The rest of the world are following suit in monetary tightening. .. ECB stopping QE, Canada raising rates, we will go for it too. QE on this mad level only worked because everyone did it simultaneously. If the new tact is for tighter monetary policy, I think we'll all head that way.

    Ok, own up, who is it?

    I used to be a member when I was a student. I'm pretty sure you just pay the fee to become a member. In the end I thought it was a lot of money for the magazine they give you and quit my membership. When I was looking for a job I contacted them to see what they could suggest and they were abysmal.

    This is what scares me. Are we all so scared of being lonely that we accept being treated harshly? My grandad lost his wife when my mum was 13. He was an immigrant so raised her and my aunt alone and never re-married. Happiest person I've known. My aunty quit being a nun just before the final commitment, but could never really get involved with someone-seems content and enjoys life. My mum's the same despite never remarrying. Dad has been with his partner 20 years, she's negative and moans. I get the impression it grinds him down a bit. A few people give me the impression they can't go it alone, but are not keen on their spouse any more.

    I have to fool myself into thinking it's their problem that they aren't interested 😊

    This is terrible to read. Just under half of marriages end in divorce, and the ones that remain are full of unhappy people. Have the films lied to us?

    I do wonder whether things are worst here in Britain. My main relationships have been with women that are either German or American. Seems to be a bigger barrier with British women. A Canadian (female) mate has also made the point that she thinks British women are too dismissive when it comes to potential partners.

    Student Loans

    It's crazy, we'd all love 6% return. I'm not saying corbyn is the messiah, but when he said we would sort student loans out, I think he was referring to the fact it is charged at 6%. Instead of making it blantly obvious that this is what he meant, he kept it cryptic. Prob doesn't want to be forced to act if he got in. This is a major bore winner. As it is, young people are zombies walking towards financial ruin. It angers me that they charge 6% and angers me more that people it affects don't get angry about it.

    Student Loans

    Unfortunately, it's not always that simply. I was all set to become a teacher after studying physics. Was about to enrol in a teaching course before doubts set in that there's more to life than this. Even said in the interview that I may head off to Asia for a year teaching first. The guy appreciated the honesty and said I could defer until the next year. After just over a year teaching English in Japan and South Korea, I didn't want to continue with teaching in the UK. But I do think that there should be more done at uni to make people think about what's next. It's the same with most PhD students and even postdocs seem to have an aimless approach to careers.

    Treason May Assassination Attempt

    Centenarians are banned!
  15. I lived in German with my then girlfriend's family. They would have everything searched too despite them shopping there every week for the past 3-4 decades so I doubt it's because you are foreign. I never understood why they were so paranoid and why everyone was so happy to be searched.
