Alright, some hour ago I sold my 100 VOD at 30.20 per share and with
the proceeds bought 80 more shares of AT&T at 37.52.

I was spending too much time riveted to the news around Vodafone, time
that I should spend on doing physics. And I realized that a Verizon
Vodafone deal would drag on and on for months. So I sacrificed a few
dollars of loss and sold.

A long time ago I learned the lesson that "time is more valuable than
money". And a painful mistake I made when buying VOD a few days ago,
was that I did not full research when its dividend date was for
Vodafone. It appears to have been last November and so I would likely
not receive any dividend for almost a year hence. I know AT&T has a
dividend every quarter (three months) so with those 80 shares, I know
I will get a dividend for it, starting 1 August.
So a little mistake by me, but that is life itself, full of mistakes,
but overall a grand success.


More than 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.geo.geology,, 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.?Besides, Drexel's Math Forum can demand no fake
names, and only 5 posts per day of all posters which reduces or
eliminates most spam and hate-spew, search-engine-bombing, and front-
page-hogging. Drexel has?done a excellent, simple and fair author-
archiving of AP sci.math posts since May 2012?as seen?here:

Archimedes Plutonium ? ?whole entire
Universe is just one big atom ?where dots of the electron-dot-cloud
are galaxies
