It's 7.45 am and I cant see any real news on TV :(

CNBC has a segment on the Middle East.

CNN is doing a segment on Africa.

Channelnewsasia has got a segment on fashion or whatever.

These guys dont do market surveys or what ?

Finally, I remember that there is BBC somewhere. Thank god for the British. Maybe they do check on their competitors and do market surveys..

1,500 dogs die from tainted feed

Some 1,500 dogs in northeast China have died after eating animal feed tainted with the same chemical that contaminated dairy products and sickened tens of thousands of babies nationwide, a veterinarian said.

The raccoon dogs - a breed native to east Asia that is raised for its fur - were fed a product that contained the chemical melamine and developed kidney stones, said Zhang Wenkui, a veterinary professor at Shenyang Agriculture University. All of the dogs died on farms in just one village.

Zhang determined that the animals died of kidney failure after performing a necropsy - an animal autopsy - on about a dozen dogs. He declined to say when the deaths occurred but a report on Monday in the Southern Metropolis Daily newspaper said they had occurred over the past two months.

Sex shop body spreads tainted with China melamine

Chocolate-flavored body spreads sold in British sex shops have been found to be tainted with melamine, the chemical that made thousands of babies ill in China, food safety authorities said on Monday.

The British Food Standards Agency said melamine had been found in Chinese-made ``I Love You'' sets, sold at Ann Summers sex shops, containing chocolate and strawberry body pens and chocolate-flavoured penis and nipple spreads.

''This is a first. We've never had to put out an alert before on 'willy spread' - chocolate-flavored or otherwise,'' the FSA said on its website.

It said the health risk from the affected products was low.

ADVISORY-Reports on Singapore's Hyflux withdrawn, corrected

Please be advised that the report "Singapore Hot Stocks-Hyflux climbs on positive broker note" issued on Oct. 22, is incorrect and is withdrawn. The reference to Credit Suisse raising its target price for Hyflux was incorrect, as there was no change.

How many versions of the report do they have?
1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

Saw on the Hyflux thread that the news agency "mistakenly reported".

So, in this case, is the news agency liable for any damages?

McCain has terse response on Palin shopping spree

Presidential candidate John McCain is not happy about having to explain why the Republican Party has had to buy running mate Sarah Palin US$150,000 (HK$1.17 million) in clothes, hair styling and accessories.

McCain was asked several questions on Thursday about the shopping spree - and he answered each one more or less the same way: Palin needed clothes and they'll be donated to charity.

McCain offered no further comment, except to say that the Republican National Committee does not buy his clothes.

News of the purchases, largely from upscale Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, contrasts with the image Palin has crafted as a typical hockey mom.
