MERELY AN OVERSIGHT.

MERELY AN OVERSIGHT

 Dear Friends:

Years ago, people would reprimand each other for neglecting to look at, or to “factor into” their analyses or activities, certain things. We (the guilty culprits who had been careless) would say, “Sorry, sir. It must have been an oversight on my part. I’ll be more careful next time. I promise.”

Oversight was [etymologically speaking] a first cousin to the term “Overlook.”  I remember saying things like, “Damn. We must have overlooked something. It’s got to be somewhere. We’d better find it before your dad comes home.”

Under any circumstances, the terms oversight and overlook were generally used in the negative. Ironically, in government and big business, we find a proliferation of Oversight Committees. I think these committees, or subcommittees or other groups are actually intended to oversee matters – to watch over them diligently. But perhaps what they do is more overlooking than overseeing. The sad reality of this is that whether these oversight groups overlook or oversee, they generally take no corrective action.

These groups are merely public relations ploys to appease disgruntled citizens that something is “being done.” Oversight committees are generally impotent, compromised (conflicts of interest sometimes tempt people to simply let evil things go on – especially if they are paid well), confused (i.e., “This is a swell job. Thanks Mr. President. Umm…. Whatta we supposed to do again?”), experimenting with astral projection (where their physical bodies remain in their leather seats, but their minds are travelling to vast reaches of space) or making paper planes.  

I hope that you enjoy this biodegradable piece plucked from the recent annals of The New York Times.

My questions: What does “oversight” mean? What’s the point? Why have an attack dog without any teeth and a lame leg? Why spend money on an investment that is certain to lose?

My Observation: Oversight is not a substitute for constructive, decisive action. It is means of deferring or avoiding a commitment to responsibility.

Thank you all for letting me rant.

Faithfully,

Douglas Castle

IRRELEVANT COMMENTS ON MY POSTS…
They’re Always Entertaining.

Dear Friends:

I am a staunch proponent of free speech as it was, some time ago, actually protected by the United States Constitution. It’s a delightful irony when some spammer or misguided soul posts an irrelevant or downright indecipherable comment on one of my blog posts for my consideration – it is at those times when I realize that the right to exercise “free speech” is sometimes actually interpreted by some to be synonymous with the right to promote “valueless speech,” which is something slightly different.

Here’s a great one that appeared in my inbox today regarding a post which I made on one of my old, inactive blogs. Before you read it, open a window, get a box of tissues and sit down in a comfortable chair.

Braintenance: Sand Sifting and Cypherin'

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Braintenance: Sand Sifting and Cypherin’

Here's a Braintenance question from over a week ago, with the answer posted right underneath it. I’ll bet you’d thought that I’d forgotten about it. Well…I never forget; I just get distracted.

Since we've become much more knowledgeable about cylinders and cones, this question has two parts:

If we wanted to divide a truckload of 100 cubic feet of sand (note that we're working on sand, because it's easier to part the sand than to part the sea, generally speaking) equally into two containers, and one of them is a cylinder with a base (radius) of three feet, and the other is a cone with a radius of nine feet, how tall must the cone be? How tall must the cylinder be?

As we recall:

The Formula for the Volume of a Cylinder = Pi x radius^2 x height [or Pi, times the radius squared, times the height]

The Formula for the Volume of a Cone = 1/3 x Pi x radius^2 x height [or one-third of Pi, times the radius squared, times the height]

Pi is the Greek letter representing the constant ratio between the circumference of a circle and its diameter, which is often expressed as either 22/7, or as 3.14.

To get the answers, we just substitute the radius measurements and the amount of square footage of sand (both of which we’ve been given, thank goodness) into the formulas:

For the cylinder, it will be –
Pi x 3 feet^2 x height = 50 cubic feet, or
3.14 x 9 x height = 50, or
28.26 x height = 50, or
Height = 50/ 28.26 = 1.769 feet in height. (a short, squat cylinder…kind of stumpy, in fact)

For the cone, it will be –
1/3 x Pi x 9 feet^2 x height = 50 cubic feet, or
1/3 x 3.14 x 81 x height = 50, or
84.78 x height = 50, or
Height = 50/ 84.78 = 0.589 feet in height (a short, squat cone…even stumpier than the cylinder)

Observation = The height of the cone is one-third the height of the cylinder when the radius of the cone is three times that of the cylinder. Is this reciprocal relationship always true? Yes it is. In every case where the relationship between the cone's radius and the cylinder's radius is 1 to 3 (or 1:3), the ratio of the heights (assuming that they each contain the same volume of sand, or something more interesting) will be the inverse, or 3 to 1 (or 3:1).
My, but this gets me tired. I'm leaving. See you soon.
Faithfully,

Douglas Castle

Two Paths for the US Economy: Extinction or Revolution. - [Next Post We'll Have the Answer to Your Last Solid Geometry Question]

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Two Paths for the US Economy: Extinction or Revolution.

Dear Friends:

I do not believe that an economic recovery is truly in store for the United States, and I am extremely frightened by the two glaring alternate possibilities that lie ahead in the American Futurescape. Deeper indebtedness without a means of repayment never, ever works. Unemployment (and underemployment) is growing. Consumer and business credit markets are tightening… I see an endless chain of band-aids over a gangrenous body. Are we a terminally-diagnosed patient? Are we, the patient, a sovereign nation lying in a hospital bed whose life is being artificially, scientifically prolonged through illusions, rhetoric and deferred consequences (stall tactics).

The innovators and entrepreneurs, our most productive and prolific business population segment, are not being fed much more than lip service. Collectively and collaboratively, we are called upon to take our future into our own hands. We can only do this by uniting and cooperating. Through my work with The National Networker Companies, I was led to the notion of the GICBC – the Global Interworked Cooperative Business Community. I now see this new entity as an ark to transport the willing seedlings of a new socio-economic system to a safe landing place while the flood waters rise.

Look up the GICBC in a Google search. If you feel yourself compelled to help with the groundwork required to build a future that does not have to result in extinction or revolution, please click on http://bit.ly/contactTNNW , and reach out to us. Just be certain to put “GICBC” in the subject line.

àOne of the best treatments for emotional or economic depression is to take action. Isn’t it time we, as entrepreneurs, emerging business leaders, aggressive networkers and innovators, stopped standing idly by, hands at our sides, and watching a parade of blunders, gaffes, lies and post- mortem disclosures?  

The excerpted and edited information which follows begs several questions:
1. Who is making economic policy and is the ultimate controlling force in the US economy? Is it Congress, the Treasury or the Federal Reserve Board? Has the White House any real power to intercede or control – or is it merely a symbolic institution that routinely leaks or announces “news” that is actually palliative rhetoric? Who is in charge? Who (name them!) has the power?

2. Do the country’s citizens and taxpayers have any say whatsoever in this process?

3. What will be the ultimate implications and costs of this currency and bond printfest?

4. When will the inevitable aftershocks be felt?

5. Who will be impacted and how? Who will pay this incredible, unprecedented, chasm of unsupported and ever-growing debt? Can it ever be repaid?

àThe average US citizen has come to distrust the government, large corporations, and even the notion of “honest business.” The middle-class is fast evaporating. There are more “working poor” than ever before in US history, both in absolute numbers and in percentage of the total population. A smaller percentage of US citizens (and other parties) owns and controls more of the entire nation’s wealth than ever before. We are becoming very like a creature with a tiny brain and a giant body which is unfed. Don’t creatures like that tend to become extinct?

Please read the brief excerpt which follows…

Douglas Castle

Dirty Government Tricks... Heartbreaking Tales of Corporate Chicanery... and the Biggest Investor Myth of a Generation...

February 23, 2010


NOTE: This material was excerpted from a direct email investment solicitation sent to me by THE MOTLEY FOOL. I have edited some of the content. I do not endorse their publication, its point of view, or any of its investment recommendations. I do not offer financial, investment, tax, legal, accounting, health or medical advice. I merely offer my opinion in a non-professional capacity for the purposes of illustration, edification and entertainment. Really.

Faithfully,


p.s. I occasionally quote other writers because I enjoy their style of writing, or because I believe that they might have something valid to express. I share these materials with my readers as I deem appropriate.
Dear Fellow American,
Talk about a low-down, bag-over-the-head, kick-to-the-groin tactic...

On Christmas Eve 2009, while Americans were smack in the middle of holiday festivities... wrapping presents, spending time with family and friends, and toasting the season...

The U.S. Treasury quietly issued a press release. In hopes nobody would notice. And few did at that moment.
Here's the story. In September 2008, when the government first stepped in and bailed out America's two largest mortgage companies, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Congress put a $200 billion limit on federal assistance...

Last year, the Treasury doubled the amount to $400 billion. And then on Christmas Eve 2009 -- they lifted the limit altogether!
The Wall Street Journal dubbed it "the Christmas Eve taxpayer massacre."


Of course, "bailout" and "federal assistance" are just government-speak for reaching into taxpayers' wallets and giving our money to failing and flawed companies.

You see, we're being forced to buy senior preferred stock from Fannie and Freddie to cover their exponentially mounting losses. And while the government would have us believe these firms are being nursed back to health, the truth, as you'll discover in a second, is more insidious than anyone could've imagined.

The government would have you believe the mortgage companies you're being forced to invest in (bail out) are being nursed back to health...
But would you believe these companies are actually being directed by the government to lose money? It's true.
According to The Wall Street Journal, "The loss cap is being lifted because the government has directed both companies to pursue money-losing strategies by modifying mortgages to prevent foreclosures."
In other words, Fannie and Freddie are now being permitted and directed to lose even more money, transferring wealth from taxpayers to overextended borrowers and flawed businesses.

In other words still -- we're being forced (by the government) to invest in companies directed (by the government) to lose money. Can there be anything worse?

Braintenance: Sorting Sand Into Two Containers, Continued! (02.16.2010)

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Dear Friends:

Here is the question (if you have a negative outlook, you might call it a "problem" instead of a question) which I had posed to you last week: 




The mission is to find the heights of each two containers, one which is cylindrical and one of which is conical such that each one can hold the same exact amount (volume) of sand. Each of the containers must have a floor area (which is a circular base, naturally) of three square feet.

Here are the formulas required to either a) answer the question, or b) solve the problem. These formulas are part of the study of solid geometry:

Quick Note:  In the formulas that follow, instead of using superscript ("powers") to show exponents, I have used the ^ sign. For example, 5^2 is "five to the second power" or "five squared".

The Formula for the Area of a Circle = Pi x radius^2 [or Pi times the radius squared]

The Formula for the Volume of a Cylinder = Pi x radius^2 x height [or Pi, times the radius squared, times the height]

The Formula for the Volume of a Cone = 1/3 x Pi x radius^2 x height [or one-third of Pi, times the radius squared, times the height]

Pi is the Greek letter representing the constant ratio between the circumference of a circle and its diameter, which is often expressed as either 22/7, or as 3.14.

ANSWER (SOLUTION)

The first thing we know is that both containers have the same sized base (a circle, or more properly, a disc) and therefore have the same radius.

Just by observation, it is apparent that a cone having the same radius as a cylinder, would only hold (or contain) one third the amount of anything (such as sand) that it was filled with as would the cyclinder. Put another way, the cylinder can hold three times as much sand as the cone (assuming that they both have the same radius, which also means that they would have the same base size, or footprint). Seen from yet another perspective, the cone would have to be three times the height of the cylinder in order to hold (or contain) the same amount of a substance; in this case, to hold the same amount of sand.

The answer (or the solution) is that the height of the cone must be three times the height of the cylinder. For example, if the cylinder were three feet in height, the cone would have to be nine feet in height; if the cylinder were five feet in height, the cone would have to be fifteen feet in height.  There is an infinite number of possible correct numerical answers, providing that the cone is always three times as tall as the cylinder.
--------------

Here's a question for next time. Since we've become much more knowledgeable about cylinders and cones, this questions has two parts:

If we wanted to divide a truckload of 100 cubic feet of sand (note that we're working on sand, because it's easier to part the sand than to part the sea, generally speaking) equally into two containers, and one of them is a cylinder with a base (radius) of three feet, and the other is a cone with a radius of nine feet, how tall must the cone be? How tall must the cylinder be?

Take good care of your brain. Remember, your brain is like a muscle -- it grows stronger with exercise. Give it a workout. Take it out for a spin. Your mind can expand to meet most any challenge. Ironically, most of us are far more intelligent than we think we are.

Faithfully,

Douglas Castle

Dear Fellow Frenetic Self-Growth Enthusiasts:

The mission is to find the heights of each two containers, one which is cylindrical and one of which is conical such that each one can hold the same exact amount (volume) of sand. Each of the containers must have a floor area (which is a circular base, naturally) of three square feet.

Using some simple solid geometry and some simple algebra, this mission should be easy to accomplish. Good luck.

Braintenance - At Last! Some Answers to the post of 1/25/2010.

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Dear Friends – Here are some answers to the problems posed in the BRAINTENANCE posting of January 25, 2010.

These problems are ridiculously simple. Or maybe not....
1) If you have started a savings account with $100,000.00 which accumulates interest at 4% compounded annually, after 10 years, what will be the accumulated sum in the account?

Solution:  Using the Compound Interest Calculator, the answer turns out to be $148,024.43. The principal amount was $100,000, the annual addition was $0.00, the years to grow were 10, the interest rate was 4%, and interest was compounded once annually.

2) Applying the same facts as in question #1, above, and assuming that inflation accumulates at a rate of 3% compounded per annum, how much would the accumulated sum in the account be worth (in the equivalent buying power of today's dollars) at the end of the ten-year period?

Solution: The simplest way to do it would be to use the same calculator as in the problem above, and find the total amount of “compounded inflation” which would occur on the same principal amount at 3% annually over the 10 – year period.

Doing this gives us a compounded value of $134,391.64…this means that the amount of compounded inflation on the account is $34,391.64. If we subtract $34,391.64 (the loss due to inflation) from the compounded total in the account of $148,024.43, we are left with $113,632.79. Inflation has taken its toll on our purchasing power!


3) Will the sum of an odd and an even number always turn out to be even or odd? (The smart answer "yes" is unacceptable).

Solution: Odd. Here’s the rule: The sum of an odd and an even number will always be odd; the sum of two even numbers will always be even; and the sum of two odd numbers will always be even, as well.

4) Will the product obtained by multiplying an odd and an even number always turn out to be even or odd? (Again, the smart answer "yes" is unacceptable).

Solution: Even. Here’s the rule: When an even and an odd number are multiplied together, the product will always be even; when two even numbers are multiplied, the product will always be even; and when two odd numbers are multiplied, the product will always be odd.

5) When people work together and combine their mental capabilities, the resulting "mind power" will be increased. If five collaborators are working together on the same project, what will the total mind power (expressed as a number) be if: a) the power is an arithmetic sum; b) the power is a geometric product; c) if the power is an exponential product???

Solution:

a) the power of five minds.
b) the power of 25 minds (5 x 5) or perhaps the power of 32 minds (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2).
c) the power of 3,125 minds (5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5).

If you believe that this is the potential power which could be generated by a mere five people working together (with 100% efficiency/ telepathy and 100% cooperation/ active thought), and others feel similarly, why do you suppose that that potential (assuming that it could be accurately measured) would very seldom, if ever, be reached? This is an open question that leads us into areas of behavioral psychology and group dynamics, but it’s very worthwhile to ponder.

Faithfully,

Douglas Castle
