CAPITALISM AT WORK . In the latter part of the 1990s, companies such as Dynegy, Duke Energy, El Paso and Williams began following Enron’s lead. Enron’s competitive advantage, as well as its huge profit margins, had begun to erode by the end of 2000. Each new market entrant’s successes squeezed Enron’s profit margins further. Despite all this trouble bubbling under the surface, in the heady period of 1999-2000, Enron stock exploded in price, reaching ~90 in Aug 1999 before being split 2:1, then doubling to reach 90 again in Aug 2000 for a market cap of $70 billion. It outperformed the S&P by over 200%. Nigerian Barge Deal: A 1999 agreement between Enron and Merrill Lynch in which Enron transferred an interest in energy-producing barges located off the coast of Nigeria to Merrill Lynch. The sale ... In 1990, Lay created the Enron Finance Corporation and appointed Jeffrey Skilling, whose work as a McKinsey & Company consultant had impressed Lay, to head the new corporation. Skilling was then ... The Enron scandal was an accounting scandal involving Enron Corporation, an American energy company based in Houston, Texas.Upon being publicized in October 2001, the company declared bankruptcy and its accounting firm, Arthur Andersen – then one of the five largest audit and accountancy partnerships in the world – was effectively dissolved. In addition to being the largest bankruptcy ... The tip should have been that Peter Coyote, one of the top liberals in "hallow wood" was the narrator. I wanted, as most of us I assume to, watch an objective, fact based documentary which was VERY WELL done, only to be ruined by the constant intrusion of the implication the Republicans groomed the Enron execs, gave them carte blanche while mostly democrats grilled them after the collapse. Consider the following quotes published just months before Enron’s demise: “For Enron to say we can do bandwidth trading is like Babe Ruth saying I can hit that pitcher. You tell him to get up there and take 3 swings. The risk is staggeringly low and the reward is staggeringly high.” – Steven Parla, Energy Analyst at CSFB, Fortune, 24 ... Enron Corporation was an American energy, commodities, and services company based in Houston, Texas.It was founded by Kenneth Lay in 1985 as a merger between Lay's Houston Natural Gas and InterNorth, both relatively small regional companies.Before its bankruptcy on December 3, 2001, Enron employed approximately 29,000 staff and was a major electricity, natural gas, communications, and pulp and ... On Friday, Enron announced the merger with Dynegy. Shares rose 16% to $10. On Tuesday, November 13, $2 billion arrived for Enron. Arthur Andersen and Enron took a breath, but it wasn’t enough.

2021.12.02 00:29 throwawaynumberX564 Anyone work at an “Enron” before the demise?
Does anyone work at a company that is either riddled with audit findings, in the mist of a Ponzi scheme, or has zero internal controls?
Do you get out fast? Report findings to higher ups? Help to make changes? Or keep your mouth shut?

2021.12.02 00:29 AdviceRepulsive Did anyone come out and end up moving?
Honest post ahead. I grew up in a small very bigoted town. Mostly white population no real diversity at all. LBGT was unheard of. I moved away to a bigger city for a job six years ago that has lots of diversity. Unfortunately this year has not only been my coming out year but my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I realized after my dads diagnosis that I have lived in Ohio my entire life. I desire to move away. I wouldn’t mind a suburban with decent LBGT presence or at least hangouts. I’m not a big city life person but don’t mind visiting. Has anyone came out and moved away? I just feel like life is passing me by where I’m at. I feel the old me here and to be honest I don’t want to remember some of those times. If I don’t move now I may never move. Thoughts?

New to the forum, I'm at 3 days or so a week, usually on weekends when going out drinking or out wherever. Usually anywhere from 25-50mg a night on those nights. Been around there for about 2.5 years. Is that a lot or a little compared to the people here?
Not sure if it matters but I'm 32, take several vitamins/supplements and workout 4 days a week.

2021.12.02 00:29 flakey_salt69 It has been 1 month since I have applied to 7 universities
Well, not exactly 1 month. I applied on Nov 5th and 6th to 7 universities (1 ambitious, 5 moderate, 1 safe). All my lors were submitted before Nov 12th except for 1 university (UNC Charlotte) since the university was in the process of changing the website and my professor is out of town this week. I will remind her next week. I applied for a master's degree in Computer Science.
The application process was smooth. I applied to 4 universities on Nov 5th and 3 universities on Nov 6th. I took things slow. I took 2 1/2 weeks for SOP, 1 week for LOR. I don't exactly have good grades and GRE scores. This is the reason why I submitted fairly early.
I was supposed to apply in October but I had trouble getting lots. Initially, 2 professors who I asked for a lor, who said yes, dropped in the last minute and I had to ask other professors. Luckily, I was able to get 1 from the head of the department, 1 from the dean, and 1 from my project guide and I am super happy.
For SOP, I read tons of SOPs online and asked my seniors and relatives. 2 SOPs struck me. In 1 SOP, I read how a person talked about his biggest regret and how he went on to love CS. In another essay by a Harvard undergraduate, he talked about how he envisions music and math together. I did the same thing as these SOPs resonated with me the most. I did not copy the SOP but I wrote in a similar style.
I wrote a short story about myself and how I overcame my biggest regret. I then went on to talk about my achievements and what I have done in my undergrad. I sent my SOP to my relatives and seniors and got positive reviews and some minor changes. I am very pleased with my essay.
I have so much free time now. The whole application process right from the preparation took almost 1 year and it is now over. The wait is killing me. I don't know what to do. I used to check the universities website every day for new notifications but now I check once or twice a week.
I hope your application process goes well and good luck!

2021.12.02 00:29 thedarklord_95 My best friend is friends with someone I dislike a lot.
I’m an adult and I feel like I should not be worried about friendship drama at 26, but I can’t help but get a gut feeling about this situation…
My best friend and I became close after going through shit in 2019. One of the reasons why we got close was because of the actions of another girl. This other girl was toxic and really fake around us, and I immediately couldn’t stand her.
My best friend is starting to warm up to this girl now and I can’t help but wonder and feel betrayed. The other girl really hurt me, and my best friend is aware of the girl’s actions and my feelings. I can’t control her friendships, but I’m starting to feel like I’m losing my best friend.
Any advice would be appreciated!

2021.12.02 00:29 Braden675 Questioning Myself
I'm a thirty year old male and I have been questioning my sexuality for years. Up until almost two years ago I lived in a very abusive household where I literally lived in a room with the door locked almost all day and night because I was harassed daily by a father who quit his job and retired in his forties and has been last two decades almost sitting around all day and night become irrational and disconnected from reality. I was told he was Bipolar but I never believed it because he never did anything about it. This is a person who literally sits outside of the room downstairs or in the hall until I come out to go to work or school and to verbally and emotionally abuse me twenty four hours a day. In some ways it was like living in the Turpin house if you're familiar with that situation.
His goal was literally to frustrate me so much I would leave and have to be on the street homeless because it's expensive where I am and he knows this was probably going to be my situation. Literally I could have no friends over, not leave for extended periods of time, nor socialize in almost any respect because this was going on in my household or if I was seen with someone it would be brought up.
This started when I was in middle school and went on until I left two years ago almost. My mother did nothing about it and literally lives there still despite being divorced for almost a decade. My other family did nothing about nor anyone else. Almost no one I knows this is how I lived through school and college. It was my problem as an adult to those who had to handle it. I've cut off sections of my family as a result. Needless to say for years I've had massive issues with depression, self-esteem, identity, and otherwise for years. I have really no friends now and moved out as the pandemic started with the isolation and lock down periods.
There was absolutely nothing that brought me positivity each day. When I was nineteen I started to look at porn. Most of it became gay porn because it was literally the only thing that would get me up during the day. It's only certain acts in porn too that I get used to. I had to masturbate just to be motivated to even get up. This created an addiction that has lasted over a decade. I told my other about this issue who is a Christian when I was twenty three. She was somewhat understanding, but never really listening to me on the situation. There were times we argued over it.
For the past two years I've started working on ending the addiction because I moved out. I've never really known what I am sexually. During all of these years I've never had a lust for someone in person, no crushes or infatuates with anyone of any gender, or similar feelings. Over time a few encounters with guys who were interested in me happened at parties and stuff when I actually was able to get out, but I don't reciprocate those feelings. I did it just to see how I felt and actually be kissed by someone, literally anyone because it's never happened and between my past living situation and the pandemic have never been able to find anyone all and spend time to figure this out further. We kissed, it felt hollow.
They gave me some head, also nothing to it and hold me. The times that has happened it's just like two pieces of meat laying together. It's hollow, empty, and similar. I've had no feelings for any of these individual in any form. It was part of the reason I stopped using porn because I realized I couldn't see myself with a guy. I've never done anything sexually with anyone besides these few encounters. There's never been any form of intercourse because I've never been into it and don't want to do that with another male. It just don't have a desire for it.
During the past six months as I've stopped looking at any pornographic material I've had instances where I will meet a girl for a few minutes and I will think they are pretty almost kind of like I was under a spell where I wanted to talk to them more and get to know them. It's happened a few times now I had never experienced a feeling like this until now. This has never happened with a male. It's like an invisible feeling or spell comes over me and I want to know them more.
I've been able to bring the addiction down to the point where I am no longer actively looking at new porn material and am in what they call the flatlining period where I have no sex drive, but also now depression, anxiety, and similar feelings. I've gotten sick of looking at porn basically and want nothing to do with it.
During that time I've looked at straight porn and actually started masturbating to girls and seeing myself into them. I don't know how to explain this and why this has happened in the ways or order it did. I can't see myself being in a relationship with a male. I have no emotional connection to any of those I've played around with. My instinct is forming a relationship with a female and seeing where it goes instead. I don't think this is just social pressure, but what my natural interest is. I feel like I never was given square odds to see what I am or is going on because there's always been chaos in my life from start to finish.

I've never been in a relationship (22m). I've been on a couple of dates but the relationship doesn't go past that. It kinda dies out during texting, I feel like I am a boring texter. Any tips on how to get better? Also, I want to ask out a girl I went to high school with, she comments on my post once in a while with fun banter and I comment on hers. Would it be kinda weird to ask send a retweet of a sushi date to see if she's interested?
