Canaccord agrees to IIROC penalties of $1.1M

VANCOUVER - The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada says Canaccord Genuity Corp (TSX:CF) has agreed to fines and other penalties totalling more than $1.1 million related to allegations of inadequate supervision of retail account activity. The IIROC says Canaccord will pay a fine of $750,000, plus an additional $310,000 for disgorged commissions. It will also contribute $50,000 towards the IIROC's investigation costs.

The settlement arose from allegations of failing to adequately monitor first-level supervision of such accounts and by failing to have effective second-tier supervision from 2005 through 2010."
Its back to the wicked large and systemic problems with the Venture bordello and they don't come any bigger than the whores at Cannakrap. A horse of course we are talking about the "accredited investors" loophole that has seen a vast multitude of public types get fleeced by utter fukkin scumbags for many years.

"The IRROC also alleged that between June 2009 andFebruary 2001 Canaccord refused to adopt procedures to reasonably assure itself that its clients who purchased private placements were “accredited investors.”"

BuySAFE for aretards

There is but a singular voice which continually expresses support for the fraud that is Kleargear. That voice promises ... "A comprehensive consumer confidence program for online retailers."

Just so we're clear here. BuySAFE will be BACKSTOPPING all the obvious consumer fraud at a time when NOBODY can reach a single one of these K9s for love nor money? Somehow I doubt it very highly. How about BuySAFE is yet ANOTHER spewing load of utter and complete nonesense, designed to support any other ongoing scamolas?

That sounds much more plausible in my little world.


In geology, beryl is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate with the chemical formula Be3Al2(SiO3). Beryls come in a number of varieties including the blue-green aquamarine, yellow-green heliodor, pink morganite, deep green emerald and the extremely rare red beryl. The name comes from the ancient Greek word beryllos describing a blue-green stone the color of the sea.
Emeralds are a form of beryl, showing the deepest and richest green which is caused by trace amounts of chromium and sometimes vanadium. This rare and beautiful stone has been a favorite of royalty and the wealthy throughout history and was worshiped by Incas and Aztecs as a holy stone. Its various legendary attributes include the ability to foretell the future, bring good luck and wealth and protect against illness.

Emeralds in antiquity were mined by the Egyptians and in Austria, as well as Swat in northern Pakistan. A rare type of emerald known as a trapiche emerald is occasionally found in the mines of Colombia. A trapiche emerald exhibits a "star" pattern. It is named for the trapiche, a grinding wheel used to process sugarcane in the region. Colombian emeralds are generally the most prized due to their transparency and fire.
Golden beryl can range in colors from pale yellow to a brilliant gold. Unlike emerald, golden beryl has very few flaws. The term "golden beryl" is sometimes synonymous with heliodor. Both golden beryl and heliodor are used as gems.
Morganite, also known as "pink beryl", "rose beryl", "pink emerald", and "cesian (or caesian) beryl", is a rare light pink to rose-colored gem-quality variety of beryl. Orange/yellow varieties of morganite can also be found, and color banding is common.

Pink beryl was first discovered on an island on the coast of Madagascar in 1910. In December 1910, the New York Academy of Sciences named the pink variety of beryl "morganite" after financier J. P. Morgan.
Red beryl (also known as "red emerald" or "scarlet emerald") is a red variety of beryl. It was first described in 1904 for an occurrence at Maynard's Claim (Pismire Knolls), Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah.
Red beryl is very rare and has only been reported from a handful of locations including: Wah Wah Mountains, Beaver County, Utah; Paramount Canyon and Round Mountain, Sierra County, New Mexico and Juab County, Utah. The greatest concentration of gem-grade red beryl comes from the Violet Claim in the Wah Wah Mountains of mid-western Utah, discovered in 1958. While gem beryls are ordinarily found in pegmatites and certain metamorphic stones, red beryl occurs in topaz-bearing rhyolites. It is formed by crystallizing under low pressure and high temperature from a pneumatolitic phase along fractures or within near-surface miarolitic cavities of the rhyolite.

Natural Fancy Champagne Diamonds

Thirty years ago, Champagne diamonds were seldom seen on the market, until the Argyle Mine in Western Australia began raising international awareness of their alluring beauty. Since then, Champagne diamonds have become the ultimate fashion accessory for A-List celebrities and style trendsetters worldwide.
Argyle Diamonds has devised the C1 to C7 colour scale to grade champagne diamonds.

Gemologists use three terms to describe color in natural colored diamonds:

Hue: the dominant color of the natural diamond. Sometimes, modifying colors or tints can affect the hue of a diamond.

Tone: the amount of lightness or darkness in the natural colored diamond. The range of tone extends from light to dark.

Saturation: the strength or intensity of color in the natural diamond. The saturation of light in diamonds can vary from pastel to vivid and intense. The darker and more intense the color, the rarer and more expensive the diamond.

A famous Champagne colored diamond is the Golden Jubilee. The diamond weighs 545.67-carats and is known as the largest faceted diamond in the world. The rough was 755-carats and was discovered in the Premier mine in South Africa in 1985. As a gift for the 50th anniversary of his coronation, the Golden Jubilee was presented to the King of Thailand in 1997.

Public Citizen Litigation Group issues letter to Kleargear

The Public Citizen Litigation Group issued a letter yesterday. One wonders mightily who will be around to read it. Everybody and their dog knows the Kleargear corporate address is a mail drop.

Personal Upshot? Threatening utter criminal scumbags with litigation in 30 days time whilst they are in the middle of a "midnight move" after ripping as many people off as humanly possible now isn't a fair resolution.

By 100% absolute rights the cops should be shuttering that fraudulent website. NOW.

The plot is getting thicker and deeper citizens as this monkey has received an e-mail from denying everything except the birth of Jesus.

"Please be advised that your emails were directed to the wrong person. I am not and never was the attorney for Clear Gear or any other entity with a similar name. I was contacted by 2 television stations and explained the same to them.

Your email threats have been reported to the local police department who advised me, if you continue, to report this matter to the FBI. I am sure they will be able to find you despite your efforts to hide your identity."
Well DAMN says we with gusto. The grotesquely offensive remarks were directed to what appeared to be a licensed lawyer's (gag) domain. Specifically, we e-mailed a wicked large, MFing PoS Coksucker at ...

So whats the deal?

Here is our confused reply ...

"I am not certain which e-mails you are referring to exactly. Send me a copy.
I sent my e-mails to a practicing lawyer at what appears his domain, not yahoo.
I threatened nobody and DO call the FBI, the CIA the National Guard ... and your momma.

If you are NOT a wicked fukkin scuzzy bag PoS offense excuse for a lawyer (soon to be disbared) then HELP ME track that wicked crooked MFing basterd down.

Have super duper pooper day,


p.s. Our blog numbers are outstanding."

So WTF is going on here? No clue whatever. At first blush this reply is SOUNDING distinctly lawyerly. WHY is a Yahoo address replying to something sent to ""?

ONLY the shadow knows citizens ... stay tuned, it can only get better.

Gemstones of Minas Gerais, Brazil

Brazil produces the greatest variety of gems and semi-precious stones in the world, including diamonds, emeralds and amethyst.
Portuguese colonists created the state of Minas dos Matos Gerais, later renamed "Minas Gerais," in 1720, while exploring this region of Brazil in search of gems, gold, and other valuable natural resources.

Some of the most spectacular gems come from the state of Minas Gerais. This area produces emerald, aquamarine, rubellite (pink tourmaline), green tourmaline, imperial topaz, alexandrite and amazonite.
During the 1700s, when Minas Gerais was under Portuguese control, gold and gem mining labor was conducted by slaves taken from the west coast of Africa. This accounts for the large percentage of African descendants who now populate the region.
The gem-bearing pegmatites of the Minas Gerais region are some of the most significant deposits in Brazil and the world. The topography consists of hilly country defined by mounds called inselbergs, which are pegmatites that eroded more slowly than the surrounding schists and metamorphic rock.

As the pegmatites began to erode after prolonged exposure, tougher material such as beryl, topaz, tourmaline and quartz were transported to secondary eluvial and alluvial deposits located in downstream drainage basins.
The finest Brazilian aquamarine comes from the Marambaia valley region of Minas Gerais, 100 kilometers north of Teófilo Otoni. The highest concentration of aquamarine occurs with gem-bearing pegmatites located near the villages of Catugi, Ponto de Marambaia, and Padre Paraíso.
Topaz mining in the vicintity of Ouro Prêto dates back to the 1700s. Imperial Topaz was originally mined in the "topaz belt" of Minas Gerais, which was comprised of three distinct regions (Dom Bosco, Rodrigo Silva, Saramenha) near the mining town of Ouro Prêto. In 1768, he Portuguese government designated all gem deposits in the region as property of the crown, under state control. The Mina do Capão, near Ouro Prêto has produced some of the finest imperial topaz (topázio imperial) in Brazil.
Brazilian diamond mining in Minas Gerais was short lived. In 1714, Brazil's first diamond discovery was made by miners prospecting for gold along the Rio Jequitinhonha river near the town of Tejuco (now Diamantina), in the Espinhaço Mountains.
By 1729, the Portuguese government had declared the placer mines as the property of the crown, labeling the area as a "forbidden district," and proclaiming a "royal monopoly" on all mining.

In the years that followed, there was a diamond-rush to the Rio Jequitinhonha and Rio Abaeté alluvial deposits, and diamond production in the region reached its peak between 1785 and 1807. Thereafter, there was a rapid decline as the area became mined out. The largest red diamond known, the "Moussaieff Red" was discovered in the 1990s by a Brazilian farmer in the Abaetezinho river in 1990. The rough stone weighed 13.9 carats (2.78 g).
Brazil is the one of the largest volume producers of emerald in the world, and the states of Minas Gerais, Bahia, and Goias have the largest deposits in the country. Significant emerald deposits in Minas Gerais are found at the Capoeirana mine and Itabira mine in Nova Era, Município Itabira, about 90 kilometers east of Belo Horizonte. Brazil has been known to produce large rough emeralds up to 200 carats in size.
Brazilian tourmaline is found in igneous rock pegmatite dikes and alluvial deposits (cascalho), located in the area around the Município de Virgem da Lapa, north of Teófilo Otoni. The Ouro Fino, Arazuai-Itinga, and Arazuai-Salinas mining areas north of Marambaia are a significant source for green (chrome) tourmaline.
