1…………> Crooked Broker: ConvergEx NJ


The former Chief Executive Officer of ConvergEx Global Markets Limited (CGM Limited)  Anthony Blumberg, 53, of Short Hills, New Jersey, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares of the District of New Jersey, in Newark, to one count of conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud, with sentencing has been scheduled for Dec. 5 before Chief Judge Linares.

According to court documents, Blumberg admitted that clients placed orders to buy or sell securities with G-Trade Services LLC and ConvergEx Limited, subsidiaries of ConvergEx Group that offered global trading services to clients, which in turn routed orders to CGM Limited. Blumberg also admitted that traders at CGM Limited executed the orders and sometimes added a “spread,” (a mark-down on the sale of a security or a markup on the purchase of security) to the prices they had obtained for non-fiduciary clients. To hide the fact that spread had been taken, on several occasions from 2007 to 2011, Blumberg and traders acting under his direction, acting in response to requests by clients for information that could reveal the existence of spread, sent false reports (known as time and sales reports) to these clients.





2…………> Change The Laws: Trump To Congress


The President fired a salvo of tweets, attacking his Democratic opponents of being hypocrites of failing to solve the urgent immigration problem our country is facing.

Donald J. Trump 


Why don’t the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws? Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally? 5:46 AM – Jun 18, 2018

3…………> Salvation From “Down Under”: Hydrogen Cars


As a prelude to hydrogen vehicles being developed and built in Australia, powered with a fuel derived from ammonia, two cars will be tested in Brisbane due to a Queensland breakthrough that CSIRO researchers say could turn Australia into a renewable energy superpower.

It’s the first time both Toyota and Hyundai have invested millions of dollars into hydrogen-powered vehicles, as CSIRO principal research scientist Michael Dolan said it was an inspiring day for a project that has been a decade in the making:

“We started out with what we thought was a good idea, it is exciting to see it on the cusp of commercial deployment,” he said.

For the past decade, researchers have worked on producing ultra-high purity hydrogen using unique membrane technology that will allow hydrogen to be safely transported and used as a mass production energy source.

“We are certainly the first to demonstrate the production of very clean hydrogen from ammonia,” Dr. Dolan said.

“Today is the very first time in the world that hydrogen cars have been fuelled with a fuel derived from ammonia — carbon-free fuel.” (ABC)






4…………> Forgotten Women: Impressionists


Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt were forgotten, yet leading figures in the male-dominated Impressionist movement, adored by their peers and embraced by critics at the same time.

Morisot nocturnal portrayal of the Parisian woman, true to her radical experiments with the concept of ‘finished’ and ‘unfinished’ in her painting, made her one of its most adventurous spirits.

Cassatt had the distinction of being the only American to exhibit with the Impressionists, but her uniquely modernist interpretations of traditional themes such as the mother and child brought her international recognition.
