So, years ago (in the 1980s), humanity 'invented' digital signal processing as a replacement for the analog telephone system which was rapidly collapsing under the population growth, and had been determined to be a severe limitation on 'business' by corp-gov.

Snow falling in Australia in Summer [southern hemisphere]? Naw! Go'on, mate. That can't be...unless? Hmmmmm....can we all spell 'expando earth model', and 'ice age'? Next in large temporal markers is the 'jet stream meet-up'.
Storm devastation (EU, UK, USA) is quite real (link to UK tidal surge looks like our ALTA reads) so take warnings to heart over next week. Severe northern hemisphere jet stream events causing destructive weather across our planet. - fulfilling language below...hip waders.
OK, [new lands] are here (off Japan), and other temporal markers (sino-niponese island contention) seal the deal on the forecast of a really really really rough winter. This will be pretty much across the northern hemisphere. There is language about [backwash/backflow] indicating that [eastern US], and [western Europe] will be very hard hit. Rest of forecast below from earlier data. New language indicating lots of [lost power]. (11/25/2013)
Got hip waders? Rough winter coming to North America and North Atlantic Europe. We expect 1000 year coastal flooding. Linguistics predict that [home made rafts] as THE only [practical form] of [rescue] will make it to the vids. Here at HPH we expect to see [women/children/animals] and [supplies (food/goods)] in/on [rafts] being [pulled/pushed] by [shivering males] through [kilometers] of [(salt 'flavored') waters] during [snow storms]. Hmmm....probably a good time to think about waterproof woolies (long underwear) and hip waders. (10/18/2013)
markets context updates:
BTC price is down due to selling over the chinese central bankster announcement and Baidu rescinding their acceptance of BTC. (12-7-2013)
Now watch out....TPTB may be creating 'fake crypto' currencies to have something that they can still control. i personally find quarkcoin very suspicious in its growth patterns to its very large market cap with virtually NO linguistics behind it. Caveat emptor?
US FRN (federal reserve notes) aka "dollar $" is dying. Get out while you may.
Data says 'volker rule' = 'secrets revealed + lies discovered' producing a 'bad gut reaction' in Markets entity. Most notable effects from 12-10 through 12-20.
remember... real markets are volatile...especially when they are humanity wide and nearly instantly communicative
opps....sorry, it is $3405 US FRNs to the BTC at which time (expected by our data near end of second week in Jan '14, yes, i know... improbable, but data is data...wrong, or right, reported as it presents itself to us here at hph) we get a plateau for a while. (11/17/2013).
Held your bitcoins through two/2 crashes? Ok, now you're a 'coiner'. Welcome to the 21st century. Fun, eh?
Bitcoin Magazine..a really really good article on why recent PBC (Peoples Bank of China = central bank) decisions provide green light to Bitcoin without need for it to be regulated by the state as a 'currency'. .
"Although [chinese] exchanges are required to follow know-your-customer guidelines and register with telecommunications authorities, aside from this they do not need any kind of financial license in order to operate. The Bitcoin economy will be allowed to grow, and businesses related to Bitcoin mining, trading and using Bitcoin as a payment mechanism – provided that prices are not set in BTC – will be allowed to continue to exist and prosper."China's new economic zones..[12/7/2013]"

[new electrics]: rumors coming out of cyrillic (ruski) part of planet about a new form of cooking using 'electric fields', and, no, not microwave based...microwaves are not a respected technology in russia. Anyway, this cookers' claim to fame is to be able to do a '7 course chinese meal' on a fraction of a 'milli-amp' battery. Rumor states it is now a 'sino-russian' partnership that plans to bring it out for Africa/Asia as a 'primary home cooking appliance'. Will update as rumor solidifies. [12/8/2013]

Strategies for Appreciating Currencies:
An appreciating currency such as bitcoin (the unit currency of the Bitcoin network/crytpographic protocol) is an excellent vehicle for lending. As it is appreciating (relative to fiat (and/or population growth of user base)), it can be lent out without the need for interest. Indeed, all that is necessary is the return of the principle at the agreed upon time in the future, assuming that 'growth' in the underlying 'value' of the principle. The question of 'risk' of the use of the principle in such a case is a matter separate from the underlying value of the principle in the case of an appreciating currency.
By contrast, one needs to charge interest in any future settlement, dollar based transaction as the underlying 'value' of the dollar is certain to be less at the time of settlement (likely MUCH less given the predilictions of the Fedsters). With an appreciating currency such as bitcoin, a loan today with repayment of the principle in the future has no guaranteed loss of value, and may include a probability in which the repayment of the principle with the time differential of the loan is such that great benefits accrue.
