Sylvia Browne, a best-selling author who claimed she had psychic abilities that allowed her to talk to the dead and see into the future, died Wednesday in San Jose, according to a statement posted on her website. She was 77. No cause of death was reported. A frequent guest on television shows including "The Montel Williams Show" and "Unsolved Mysteries," Browne published dozens of books, including titles like "Animals on the Other Side" and "Past Lives of the Rich and Famous." According to her website, 22 of her books appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. Browne, who sometimes assisted law enforcement agencies with criminal investigations, occasionally came under criticism by some who dismissed her self-proclaimed psychic talents.

Our reasons included concerns about the ultimate market cap the market would allow the company to achieve, rising competition from Android devices, the release of the iPhone 5 with a sub-par mapping application and concerns about the ability of the company to hold together its management team in the post-Steve Jobs era (a concern that was validated when the company announced management changes)" Scott Black Delphi Management's Scott Black holds no Apple shares, but engages in a mobile communications play through a stake in Skyworks Solutions ( SWKS ), which makes radio-frequency chips used by Qualcomm, Apple ( AAPL ) and Samsung ( XKRX:005930 ). In an October Barron's interview, he commented on why he is avoiding Apple: "Most big tech companies spend at least 15% to 20% of revenue on research and development. During its halcyon era, Apple spent only 2.3% of revenue on R&D. It could spend so little because Steve Jobs was a genius. I've often called him the Thomas Alva Edison of his day.

If a wedding party with 40 rooms just canceled, it will never show on Internet, so you're in a great position to get a deal an unsold room is something they'll never recoup." RATING THE ONLINE REVIEWS He doesn't give them any validity. On Travel Detective, he showed how "broken" the system of online travel reviews has become. He wrote 20 phony reviews about a hotel, and all 20 were subsequently published on a leading travel-review site. Bogus reviews are usually written by the property and friends, he says, or coerced. "I can't tell you how many hotels I've checked into that have a sign at the front desk 'write a great review of our hotel, and you'll get a free dinner.' " His alternative? Talk to friends, instead.

I hope you figure that part out on your own! You have two basic options when it comes to the type of wig you want. Both have good and bad points, which I have brought up below: Human Hair Wigs PROS: Human hair wigs are amazing. They can feel silky smooth and so much like your own hair that anyone and everyone can be fooled into thinking that it really is your own hair. Some are made 100% by hand, versus a machine-made wig, so that the cap itself can feel like a human scalp when securely on one's head.

Funds run by well known activists, including Jeff Ubben of ValueAct, Barry Rosenstein of Jana Partners, and Carl Icahn, have returned roughly 14 percent on average so far this year, twice the amount that the average hedge fund has delivered, partly because they cajole businesses into running their operations better, the activists say. In principle, this makes sense. One common criticism of passive investing is that if everybody did it, then there would be no price discovery and that the more passive investors there are, in a market, the easier it becomes to take advantage of them with a little bit of sophisticated analysis and/or activist investing. But the point at which passive investing becomes self-defeating is a bit like the point at which the gradient of the Laffer curve turns negative, and tax hikes cause revenue losses rather than revenue gains: both points are far beyond any state of the world that obtains in real-life America.
