BrainMaker Neural Network software
Mr. James O'Sullivan, of O'Sullivan Brothers Investments, Ltd. (Connecticut) has been successfully using many BrainMaker (California Scientific) neural networks on a daily basis for three years to do financial forecasting. He earned $250, 000 in one month using neural networks to advise him on his New York Stock Exchange seat trades. Some of his networks are 88-90% accurate in their predictions, according to Mr. O'Sullivan. He uses an automated neural network system that monitors more than twenty different financial markets on a daily basis.
Mr. O'Sullivan has some unusual designs which act more as detectors of specific market conditions, rather than as exact price predictors. He combines the neural network data with other data from his technical analysis software to produce an automated report about a certain market. He gets his data live via satellite from Data Broadcasting and puts it into a charting and technical data module. He has pre-programmed the various algebraic manipulations to be performed on his data before BrainMaker files are built. He does moving averages, changes from period to period, and a few proprietary operations. He runs new data through the system and produces the one-page report in

With the stock market lurching again, plenty of investors are nervous, and some are downright bearish. Then theres Robert Prechter, the market forecaster and social theorist, who is in another league entirely.
Prechter is convinced we have entered a market decline of staggering proportions perhaps the biggest of the last 300 years.
In a series of phone conversations and e-mail exchanges last week, he said that no other forecaster was likely to accept his reasoning, which is based on his version of the Elliott Wave theory a technical approach to market analysis that he embraces with evangelical fervor.
Originating in the writings of Ralph Nelson Elliott, an obscure accountant who found repetitive patterns, or "fractals," in the stock market of the 1930s and...

For example, there's a story about King Herod in the December issue that goes into great detail about his rein.
It's distinguished by passages such as this one:
Yet today he is best known as the sly and murderous monarch of Matthew's Gospel, who slaughtered every male infant in Bethlehem in an unsuccessful attempt to kill the newborn Jesus, the prophesied King of the Jews. During the Middle Ages he became an image of the Antichrist: Illuminated manuscripts and Gothic gargoyles show him tearing his beard in mad fury and brandishing his sword at the luckless infants, with Satan whispering in his ear. Herod is almost certainly innocent of this crime, of which there is no report apart from Matthew's account.

The other side recycles the "models-are-inaccurate" argument because it they remain the only evidence offered that humans are responsible for any observed shift in the climate. Without those models there is every indication that what we are experiencing is a normal, natural occurance and any influence humans have is minimal at worst. Those models are the GW camps stock in trade. Without those models they have nothing, or at best very little.
As the primary evidence offered for the theory any critical examination will focus on those models.
As far as credentials go it seems to me the pro-GW camp play pretty fast and loose with this as well. There are many contributors to the IPCC reports whose primary speciality is not climateology. And many that would not qualify as...
