Actuarial Outpost Hijacked

The link to the right of this blog for Actuarial Outpost Pension Forum, from which I often get useful links on what’s going on with public pensions, has been broken for a couple of days now and apparently, according to STUMP:

People who have been reading me for a long time know that I like to keep a record on the Actuarial Outpost, but that site’s nameservers seem to have gotten hijacked by a domain-squatting operation.

I know one workaround: go directly to their IP address of 204.232.242.165. I don’t know if/when they’ll get the site’s nameserver working again and in the meantime, I may do all my article round-up here on STUMP.

This link works now but not much activity since Tuesday.

    Off Topic ……………

    Article title : ‘Completely irresponsible’ Republican coronavirus stimulus plan lacks direct cash aid for states, Murphy says”

    https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/07/completely-irresponsible-republican-coronavirus-stimulus-plan-lacks-direct-cash-aid-for-states-murphy-says.html

    No Gov Murphy. YOU are the Union-beholden/ass-kissing idiot who wants to INCREASE spending and pay for it with BORROWED money.

    FREEZE the overly generous/unaffordable Public Sector pensions (ZERO further accruals) and end retiree healthcare subsidies that almost nobody in the Private Sector gets any longer.

    Seems that Bill gates agrees (about Trump) …………..

    Article Title: “Bill Gates: U.S. coronavirus response ‘shocking’ and ‘among the worst in the world’”

    Quoting …………..
    ————————————–
    ““You know, this has been a mismanaged situation every step of the way,” the Microsoft (MSFT) co-founder and billionaire said in an interview with STAT News. “It’s shocking. It’s unbelievable — the fact that we would be among the worst in the world.”

    Gates added that the variety of missteps by the U.S. government, from testing to issuing guidance to new hires, were baffling.

    “The administration’s now hired this Stanford guy who has no background at all just because he agrees with their crackpot theories,” Gates said of Dr. Scott Atlas, the president’s new coronavirus advisor.”

      Just for understanding how these things come about (at least for me) ………….

      You plan to write one thing, change your mind part way through, and then fail to go back and look for grammatical errors. In the above case, I recall that I was going to write ….”How does one spell moron” ……. but then decided to write “you” instead of “one”, and didn’t look back.
