I was playing with Apple’s iMovie app in my iPhone yesterday, and I found an option to create movies from Trailer templates. So I tried, and I had a few clips from our Manila Ocean Park trip last February lying around.
This movie I created for like 30 minutes or so only with my iPhone 5S and the iMovie app. Here goes:
Eight rounds down, five more to go for the 2015 edition of Tata Steel Masters Chess Tournament, and Wesley So is planted on 2nd place (after tiebreaks are applied), and just half a point behind the World Champion, Magnus Carlsen. This happened after 3 wins and 5 draws (with 0 loss).
Giulia Raphaelle christening that happened last December 20, 2014 at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Manila, while reception followed at Movie Stars Cafe in Pasay City. Here’s the video brought to you by Deuts Production.
Back in the late 1990s, I received a steady stream of research reports from prestigious Wall Street brokerages recommending the stocks of, you guessed it, publicly traded pay phone companies. There were four of them still in business at the time, and as the reports pointed out, they were all attractively “cheap” by traditional valuation measures, such as their price-to-earnings multiples or market capitalization-to-revenues ratios. Not only that, but recently enacted deregulation was allowing pay phone operators to boost the prices they could charge for local calls, leading to predictions of new “windfalls” on Wall Street and in the financial media. Of course, in hindsight, we can see that those forecasts were wildly off the mark and that there was a clear reason those stocks were such bargains: They were well on their way to oblivion. The widespread adoption of cellular phones had already started, and it wasn’t going to stop. But at the time, many investors dropped their coins into the slots of these classic value traps and never got them back.
