Now I realize that Verizon is trying to buy Vodafone's 45% stake in Verizon wireless. And I realize that Vodafone has made one of the finest investments of the 21st century when buying that 45% stake. But now that Verizon wants to own that 45% stake at a price tag of almost what Verizon in total was worth a year ago, about 140 billion US dollars. Let me make a suggestion to Vodafone to repeat its excellent investing prowess by insisting that for every share of Verizon wireless that Vodafone hands to Verizon that it be compensated not with cash but with 1.5 shares of AT&T.
So that at the end of the deal, Vodafone will own approximately 45% of AT&T rather than 45% of Verizon wireless.
I am kind of anxious to see if corporations can make such a deal, and whether lawyers can draft such a deal. So that Verizon will have to buy shares of AT&T and hand them over to Vodafone which in turn hands over shares of Verizon wireless to Verizon. -- Approximately 90 percent of AP's posts are missing in the Google newsgroups author search starting May 2012. They call it indexing; I call it censor discrimination. Whatever the case, what is needed now is for science newsgroups like sci.physics, sci.chem, sci.bio, sci.geo.geology, sci.med, sci.paleontology, sci.astro, sci.physics.electromag to?be hosted by a University the same as what Drexel?University hosts sci.math as the Math Forum. Science needs to be in education?not in the hands of corporations chasing after the next dollar bill.
Only Drexel's Math Forum has done a excellent, simple and fair author-archiving of AP sci.math posts since May 2012 as seen here :
