What I'm Reading Now Week 12

Rigged: The True Story of an Ivy League Kid Who Changed the World of Oil, From Wall Street to Dubai by Ben Mezrich.

After reading Bringing Down the House by Mezrich, I was intrigued when I saw this book by the same author.  It was released in 2007 and tells the story of a young man fresh out of Harvard Business School who moves to New York and begins working for the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX).  While there he is given the opportunity to pair with a young man from Dubai to create the Dubai Mercantile Exchange from the ground up.  While lacking in many of the technical details with regards to how oil futures are traded, this is an interesting first glimpse into a world that I admit that I know very little about.  Oil seems to be on everyone's mind these days and this book caught my eye.  It is an easy read (I finished it in a day), yet it was entertaining enough that I am interested in learning more about a commodity that wields enormous power in our society.

As if Tide wasn't expensive before...

Procter and Gamble recently announced that it will be raising its detergent prices by 4.5% at the beginning of June.  This is following Kimberly-Clark's announcement last week that they would be raising their prices on diapers, wipes and toilet paper by 3-7%.  I have a feeling this is just the beginning...

Did you know that today is Pi Day? ( I know, I know, I'm weird like that!) Pi represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
 \pi = \frac{C}{d}.
This ratio, Pi, is an irrational number meaning it will continue infinitely without ever repeating and thanks to computers, we now know the value of Pi to over 1 trillion digits!

Happy Pi Day all!

The Meaning and Origin of the Purple, Green and Gold in Mardi Gras

The official Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold hold special meaning.  The purple color represents justice; green, faith; and gold, power.  These colors were selected as the official colors of Mardi Gras in 1872 by Grand Duke Alexis Romanoff, brother of the heir to the Russian throne, who was visiting New Orleans.  The Krewe of Rex also established the meaning behind theses colors in 1872 during the Rex Parade theme "Symbolism of Colors."

The History of Mardi Gras

Many believe that the origins of Mardi Gras can actually be traced back to Medieval Europe yet there is no written record of how we made the transition from then to the Mardi Gras that we know and love today.  The Mardi Gras as it is currently celebrated is definitively New Orleans however it was introduced to the area by French settlers.   The French explorer Pierre Le Moyne d-Iberville and his brother Jean Baptiste Le Moyne Sieur de Bienville landed directly south of New Orleans in 1699 and called this point "Pointe du Mardi Gras."  Bienville would go on to establish "Fort Louis de la Louisiane" in the area now known as Mobile, Alabama as the first capital of French Louisiana in 1702.  These settlers in Mobile celebrated the first Mardi Gras in 1703.
