007 - James Bond what powers the longest running film series -
… According to the author himself, he wanted to give the protagonist “the dullest and plainest sounding name he could think of – JAMES BOND”. It turned out, what has been perceived as dull and boring in the sixties, still has a lot of story fire power left, even sixty years later. The James Bond series with 24 movies is the longest running film series ever and is worth up to 7.04 billion now – the sixth highest grossing series ever produced. By the sounds of it, the British EON Production Ltd. that has been exclusively producing all of the agent stories over the decades, a new James Bond movie, number 25, “No time to die”, will premiere November 12, 2020 in London – Covid permitting. By now, the latest trailer can already be viewed online, and it would not surprise me if theaters are already taking reservations. The British agent series is still a hot entertainment commodity. Like the many 007 before this movie, it too will surely be a success. It seems that for a story that always develops and ends pretty much like the one before, the action and suspense filled, almost superhero like, plot is always able to pull in a new generation of fans. It seems 007 is not just a chameleon that can camouflage himself into any society and survive, his creators were even able to manage and design his appeal to such a degree that the multigenerational fans never got bored of watching a make-over of the previous one. So, what powers this almost seemingly never-ending villain chasing and government killer storyline? …

Covid 19 response - Sweden the pariah or a role model?
…. There seems to be only one country that did not get lured into the media frenziness, nor were they corrupted by higher powers and industry influencers. The shining star that seems to have mastered the “corona health crisis” is SWEDEN. Why does the mainstream media especially here in North America deliberately ignore the success story? And why don’t governments change course and adopt the Swedish recipe on how to deal with the flu? Especially if their own “educated” fix is obviously not helping the situation, actually to the contrary dragging it out to an unknown date in the distant future – for a vaccine with a most likely very questionable efficacy. …..

In Venice on September 8th, 2016 the Argentinian Movie “El Ciudadano Ilustre”, with the English title “The Distinguished Citizen” premiered. It was widely positively reviewed, won numerous movie awards, and was emphatically received by a worldwide audience (a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes still up to today). The, as a dark satirical comedy described, movie has been added to a North American streaming service and with that an even greater viewership can now enjoy this, I believe, quite refreshing South American movie production. Film critique Benjamin Russel from Americas Quarterly writes “ … at the heart of The Distinguished Citizen are questions about the nature of creativity, ownership of art, and the vagrancy of truth. ….

The NYSE – when will the music stop ?

The NYSE - when will the music stop ?
Presently, the New York based Stock exchange is up to this day still the conductor of the international monetary orchestra. Undoubtedly, the world economy has been moving for well over a hundred years to the tunes the New York exchange emits. Much of what defines America and its economic success over the last century has had its origin here at the “Wall Street band shell”. Many people who became interested in astrology have tried their luck in predicting the course of the Wall Street generated indices. The idea is enticing and I guess anybody who attained some astrological knowledge had their try and temptation to find a formula to predict markets. The chart of the exchange is no big secret and can be found in almost any horoscope collection. It is most likely one of the most looked at and examined charts in the world. The present state of the stock market is for many a conundrum – inflated, seemingly ever rising stock prices paint a quite different picture to what “main street” America is currently experiencing. Unprecedented high unemployment rates, a collapsing consumer appetite, lack of money, and skyrocketing debt levels on all fronts (private, corporate and government) make it hard to believe that the prices for shares reflect the economic state and reality. Last week, I believe Elon Musk was reported to be worth 100 billion. Some analysts are forecasting a second crash this year, others believe the prices are only a part of a “melt-up,” instead of a threatened meltdown. In April I already published my interpretation of the market for late April, May, and June; and it basically unfolded as assumed. I still remember writing about it when the market was down – really down – with all the Covid news and nobody dared to believe that it would recover, and I wrote that it would mildly recover and stabilize by the end of May to the beginning of June. As we know by now, it even did better. So, I dare to give it another shot. In April, my prediction was that the NYSE had entered a value favoring Jupiter-Uranus phase starting around 24.04.2020. Like with all those phases, they are not necessarily a digital process, one day bad and the next day everything is good. The start date usually marks a turning point and then towards the middle of the phase ……
