Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday


How many times a year does a "Triple witching hour" occur?


      Four                                                      Source


Triple witching hour is the last hour of the stock market trading session (3:00-4:00 P.M., New York Time) on the third Friday of every March, June, September, and December. Those days are the expiration of three kinds of securities. The simultaneous expirations generally increases the trading volume of options, futures and the underlying stocks, and occasionally increases volatility of prices of related securities.        Source






Randall was first, and correct, with:
   FOUR...

  The third Friday of March, June, September, and December
  at 3:00 - 4:00 pm Eastern Time
  Stock Market index futures,
  Stock Market index options,
  and Stock options all expire.




Charlie wrote:
   Four.




Liquid Lois Of Oregon said:
   I consulted three of the leading economic experts in my attic and they informed me that witching hours occur at the expiration time for derivative contracts with values based on the stock market. In other words "by the shrinking of my cock, it's time to unload this damn stock".




Alan J responded:
   Four.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, replied:
   Triple witching days happen four times a year on the third Friday of March, June, September and December.



Adam answered:
   4.



Marian said:
   Ha, you tried to trick me by TRIPLE meaning three but the answer is four.



MAM   , wrote:
   Four ~ On the third Friday of March, June, September and December. An event that occurs when the contracts for stock index futures, stock index options and stock options all expire on the same day.
  This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as "freaky Friday".





Deborah replied:
   I think it has something to do with the stock market, but I'm hazy on the details and too tired to look it up.
  Been up since 3:30 - two hour drive to Chico, 4 hours riding the tandem bike around the area for 62 miles, two hour drive home. Good times!




Joe S     answered:
   I'm quite fond of witches but I must confess, I've never heard of "Triple witching hour." I'll have to look it up.
  What? It has nothing to do with witches. It's stack, I mean stock, market crap and it happens four times a year. It is explained thusly, bla bla bla. Garble garble garble. Misdirect obfuscate jargon, bla. That applies to all Wall Street explanations. The Dow is now over 18,000, do you know what that means? No, and neither do I, nor anyone else for that matter. Except for the guys stealing you money, they know.
  I also think the witches are pretty upset for using their name in vain, so watch out. You don't want to piss off a witch.


  These are the witches you find here in West Michigan.

BartCop

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to active@bartcop.com.

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on bartcop.com

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Works For Senate, Sleeps On Streets

Fight for 15

For the past eight years, from his custodial post in the cafeteria of the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Charles Gladden has greeted the movers and shakers of Washington, D.C.

Nearly none of them knew that, when his shift was over, Mr. Gladden, who has been homeless for five years, would spend his nights sleeping on the street near the McPherson Square Metro Station.

"Our lawmakers, they don't even realize what's going on right beneath their feet," Gladden told the Washington Post's opinion columnist Catherine Rampell. "They don't have a clue."

Gladden makes $11 an hour and brings home about $360 a week. He uses the majority of those funds, he says, to provide for his three daughters and grandchildren who struggle to find homes and jobs. He told Ms. Rampell that his family needs the money more than he does.

Washington, D.C. is one of the most expensive cities in the country to live, with households spending on average $17,603 annually on shelter, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Attending Concert Didn't Harm Girl

Pink

A mom's decision to take her 11-year-old daughter to a Pink concert has a judge saying, "So What?"

NJ.com reports the girl's parents are divorced, and her father accused his ex-wife of abusing her parental discretion by taking their daughter to the December 2013 concert at the Prudential Center in Newark.

But state Superior Court Judge Lawrence Jones rejected the complaint in a 37-page decision that contained a brief history of rock 'n' roll and a commentary on the increasing use of judges as referees for warring divorced parents.

He found that the mother "in no way, shape or form exceeded the boundaries of reasonable parental judgment" in taking the girl to the show during her own parenting time. He also found that she didn't subject the child to any unreasonable risk of harm, or compromise the girl's health, safety or welfare.

"To the contrary, when all the smoke from the custody litigation clears, it will be self-evident that all which happened here is that a young girl went to her first rock concert with her mother and had a really great time," the judge wrote in his decision, which quoted the lyrics from Pink's songs "The Great Escape" and "Perfect" as examples of messages for adolescents.

The Mockingbird Company

Harper Lee

"To Kill a Mockingbird" author Harper Lee has started a non-profit company that will produce a play about the book, ending a dispute that threatened to derail the long-running performance, a publishing group said Saturday.

Dramatic Publishing Co. had refused to extend the performance rights for the production in Lee's hometown of Monroeville, but the Illinois-based publishing company said Saturday on its Facebook page that Lee has founded a new, non-profit group called the Mockingbird Company. The organization will produce the play beginning next year.

"We are also happy to announce that the play will be performed by Mockingbird Players, who have acted this American classic so well for so long," the statement said. "We believe that this is the best way (from the stage) to celebrate Ms. Lee's masterpiece throughout the greater Monroeville area."

The play is currently in its 26th season in Monroeville, which was the template for the fictional Maycomb in Lee's book. The performances this month and next are sold out; excitement over the upcoming publication of Lee's second book, "Go Set a Watchman," helped tickets sell out faster than normal.

1,000-Year Exposure

Earth

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Jonathon Keats figures a picture can also span a thousand years.

Keats, a San Francisco writer and self-described experimental philosopher and conceptual artist, has designed a "millennium camera" that he intends to mount in a churchless steeple on a college campus and chronicle climate change by taking a 1,000-year exposure of a western Massachusetts mountain range.

If it seems far-fetched, consider that some of Keats' previous endeavors include selling tracts of real estate in the theoretical extra dimensions of space-time; opening a photosynthetic restaurant that serves gourmet sunlight to plants; choreographing honeybees; copyrighting his own mind to give his "intellectual property" a 70-year post-life extension; and, controversially, joining in a bid to genetically engineer God.

Even at his quirkiest, Keats notes he always has a serious message to deliver, and in the case of the millennium camera - a cylindrical device small and light enough to hold in one hand but hopefully durable enough to survive the centuries - it's encouraging people to think beyond their own human lifespan to what geologists call deep time, the lengthy periods in which the world changes on a grand scale.

Shut Down

Corinthian Colleges

For-profit college operator Corinthian Colleges Inc said it will immediately shut down all its remaining campuses and cease substantially all other operations.

It is working to find other schools for the roughly 16,000 students affected by the shutdown, the company said in a statement on Sunday.

The Santa Ana, California-based company had been subject to multiple federal and state probes into whether it misled investors and students about its finances and job placement rates.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Education fined Corinthian Colleges $30 million for misrepresenting job placement rates to students in it Heald College system. The government determined that Corinthian's Heald College would no longer be allowed to enroll students.

Monument Vandalised

"Hottentot Venus"

Vandals in South Africa have vandalised a monument to Saartjie Baartman, Africa's "Hottentot Venus" who was paraded in 19th century Europe like a circus freak, police said Sunday.

The incident in Hankey, in rural Eastern Cape province, is the latest in a spate of assaults on monuments that had, until now, chiefly targeted colonial symbols.

Sarah "Saartjie" Baartman, a member of the indigenous Khoisan community, was taken from her homeland in 1810 by a British ship's doctor who told her she could earn a fortune in Europe by allowing foreigners to look at her body.

She was paraded in Britain and France for years as a sexual freak because of her large buttocks and genitalia and died a pauper in Paris in 1815.

After her death, her body was dissected and her skeleton, skull and genitalia displayed in Paris' Museum of Mankind until 1974. Her remains were finally brought home to South Africa in 2002 and buried in Hankey, amid much fanfare.

Blast At Legal Moonshine Distillery

Kentucky

An explosion leveled a western Kentucky distillery, authorities said on Saturday, injuring two workers at one of the few facilities permitted by the commonwealth to produce moonshine, a high-octane liquor mostly associated with illegal stills.

Distiller Jay Rogers, 40, his assistant Kyle Rogers, 26, were severely burned by a blast and fire on Friday at the Silver Trail Distillery in Hardin, said Frank Murphy, the director of Marshall County Emergency Management.

The pair were entering the building at about 10:30 a.m. Central time to check on a batch that had been distilling for about five hours when the blast occurred, Murphy said, adding that the cause of the explosion is under investigation.

"When they opened the door, it exploded in their face," Murphy said. "They weren't quite fully inside the building."

Lean Year For Cod Ahead

New England

Catch limits set to take effect this week will take a bite out of an industry that dates back to America's colonial past: New England cod.

The stricter quota on cod taken from the Gulf of Maine - a 75 percent cut from the current year - will also affect the catch of other similar fish, meaning New England fishermen and seafood dealers expect a year of meager supply and high prices for several popular fish.

The New England Fishery Management Council voted last year to reduce the total allowable Gulf of Maine cod catch limit from 1,550 to 386 metric tons starting May 1. Conservationists say the rules are needed to save cod from commercial extinction.

But Gulf of Maine cod are what fishermen call a "choke species," as they must also stop fishing for some other species when the cod fishery shuts down. Haddock, pollock and hake - groundfish that, like cod, dwell on the ocean bottom and share space in with it in markets, restaurants and seafood auctions - will also be harder to come by.

Weekend Box Office

'Furious 7'

"Furious 7" enjoyed a victory lap over the weekend, becoming only the third film ever to make $1 billion internationally and leading the domestic box office for the fourth straight week. But the movie that's poised to topple the Universal juggernaut, Marvel's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," revved up overseas with a massive $201.2 million debut.

"Furious 7" has had little competition to challenge it throughout April. This weekend, the only new wide release was the Blake Lively fantasy romance "The Age of Adaline." The Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment release came in third with $13.4 million. The Sony comedy "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" held up stronger than expected to take second place with $15.5 million in its second week.

But the reign of "Furious 7" is effectively over now that the highly anticipated "Avengers" sequel is on the way. Though it doesn't open in North America until Thursday night, it debuted in 44 countries and territories this weekend. That represents about half of its international rollout.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "Furious 7," $18.3 million ($69.7 million international).
    2. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," $15.5 million ($5.3 million international).
    3. "The Age of Adaline," $13.4 million ($1.3 million international).
    4. "Home," $8.3 million ($13.7 million international).
    5. "Unfriended," $6.2 million.
    6. "Ex Machina," $5.4 million ($500,000 international).
    7. "The Longest Ride," $4.4 million ($1.1 million international).
    8. "Get Hard," $3.9 million.
    9. "Monkey Kingdom," $3.5 million.
   10. "Woman in Gold," $3.5 million.
