What was actually said in the intel providers giving the info is that the 800s were given to 8 WF lawyers who would in turn give the numbers to different gurus who would then let it out to dinarland.
The WF lawyers were given a time to send those #s out. Obviously the time has not arrived.
Thank you for all you do for all of us. I for one greatly appreciate it.

Dr WC: 800# codes were released by the Elders to 8 WF attorneys at 2:06am EST Wednesday. There is a plan to release them to key Intel providers tonight.

Gatorguy: Zimbabwe reclaiming their diamond mines
A new, state-owned company, Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Co., is expected to take over the vacant mines. It will be responsible for finding, mining and selling all future diamonds in the country and is intended to make the diamond industry more efficient and transparent. Zimbabwe is one of the world’s biggest diamond producers, but in 2015 the government received around $60 million less from diamond miners, via royalties and other fees, than it had in 2014.
This was not good news for a country that has recently relied heavily on the diamond industry to prop up a rapidly declining economyLast week, Zimbabwe’s Minister of Mines ordered several foreign diamond mining companies to immediately cease their activities in Marange, an area in the east of the country.
The companies have been given 90 days to remove their equipment after being told that they were operating illegally, as their licenses had long since expired. There has been much discussion in recent months about the proposed nationalization of diamond mines in Zimbabwe, with some of the affected companies openly opposing the idea.

MOT: 6-Year-Old Landry Gets The Ultimate Treehouse From Make-A-Wish...............
Going into your backyard and seeing your son doing something with a big smile on his face? What’s better… as long as he’s safe, of course.
Little boys like Landry are the type of humans I live for. He has such a contagious smile, and an infectious mood about him. I’m sure that he has his moments, but the way that he radiates happiness in this video was truly beautiful.
All of that greatness is packed into this 6-year-old who had brain surgery when he was only 9 months old.
He was diagnosed with AVM, anterior venus malformation. This means that there is a tangle of abnormal blood vessels and veins in the brain that have the chance of rupturing. If these rupture, they can cause bleeding in the spinal cord or the brain.
When Make-A-Wish finds out about this little boy’s unfortunate medical issues? They come to give him what he’s always wanted: a treehouse for the ENTIRE family.
Not everyone includes other people within their wishes, but I sure am glad that this little boy got exactly what he wanted with his great big family by his side.
Samson: Vietnam Bankers discuss internal capital assessment for Basel II

Jamal Ahmad, chief risk officer (CRO) of Standard Chartered Bank Viet Nam shares his bank experience in managing capital risk at the workshop.
HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Banking experts shared their experiences in applying the Basel II capital adequacy guidelines at a workshop in Ha Noi on August 18.
Nguyen Toan Thang, general secretary of the Vietnam Banks’ Association (VNBA), said the workshop would enhance bankers’ understanding of the internal capital adequacy assessment process (ICAAP), a key component of central bank regulations worldwide. ICAAP is also central to Basel II, which are international banking guidelines that require financial institutions to have sufficient capital to support the risks incurred in banking operations.
According to banking experts, applying Basel II is indispensable for local banks, especially when Viet Nam has become part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, with most banks of other member countries having applied Basel II or even Basel III.
Thang said the sharing of how ICAAP was used within a bank’s strategy and risk management framework would encourage local commercial banks to develop and use better management techniques to monitor and manage their risks by exploring practical experience, good practices, challenges and the lessons learned.
Supported by the government of Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), the workshop was joi tly organised by the IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, the Swiss Finance Institute (SFI) and VNBA.
According to experts at the workshop, undertaking an ICAAP would help banks to assess the capital level required to support current and future risks, including a buffer for stress scenarios.
Well-run banks across the world view ICAAP as a core strategic activity that safeguards operations such as in times of stress, rather than as a compliance exercise.
“The need for improving risk management and integrating it with business and capital planning through an ICAAP process has become much more important,” Kyle Kelhofer, IFC country manager for Viet Nam, Cambodia and Laos PDR, said. “Demonstrating credible capital buffers to absorb material risks, beyond regulatory minimum requirements, can generate positive impact on a bank’s operations and resilience, contributing to sustainable growth of both Viet Nam’s banking sector and the entire economy.”
Le Trung Kien, deputy director of the State Bank of Viet Nam’s Department for Banking Operation Safety Policies, said the central bank has initiated a timeline for the adoption of Basel II to promote a more resilient banking sector and further use of international standards in Viet Nam. The pilot programme, launched earlier this year, is being implemented by 10 local commercial banks.
Kien said the SBV would soon issue ICAAP guidelines and regulations for commercial banks.
According to Jamal Ahmad, chief risk officer (CRO) of Standard Chartered Bank Viet Nam, ICAAP was not the same in banks because of the dynamic working environment. He, however, said it was vital that the board and business section co-operated as closely as possible for the most effective ICAAP.
Le Anh Ha, deputy CRO of Vietinbank, which started studying and applying Basel II in 2013, highlighted the co-operation between the board and business for a good ICAAP, and said the greatest challenge were human resources, adding that in the local banking system, they lacked people who had experience working with Basel II, except the few who had worked with foreign banks before.
Thus, Ha said Vietinbank was investing a lot in this by training young and talented staff along with learning from international consultants from IFC, SFI and VNBA for the best results.
Ha said while waiting for the SBV’s ICAAP guidance, the bank had prepared several plans for various scenarios.
VietinBank was among 10 banks chosen to implement Basel II from February, with the others being the Bank for Investment and Development of Viet Nam (BIDV), Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Viet Nam (Vietcombank), Viet Nam Technological and Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Techcombank) and Southeast Asia Commercial Joint Stock Bank (ACB), besides Viet Nam Prosperity Bank (VPBank), Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MB), Maritime Bank and Sacombank, as well as Viet Nam International Commercial Joint Stock Bank (VIB).
