Retired, and recovering, lawyer coming back to online forums. I've been here before, and have many friends who are deeply involved in the Wiki world; it can be used for much good, it can be used for much bad. I only want to do good.

My interests are mainly in the areas of corporate mergers and acquisitions, and leaders in business and politics, trying to keep them honest! But, I love to just browse too. I look at geopolitical, and market trends. I examine mainly publicly traded companies where strong "buy" or "sell" suggestions have been made by the "experts", and I examine the experts as well. I will swiftly, but politely, delete anything that is not supported by sources, that appears to be used to "pump" stock (even without dump intent), or that seems irrelevant to issues or articles. I don't tolerate vandalism, or people who seem to have an axe to grind against companies or other people.

Feel free to leave a message on my talk page here with any comments or questions.

Drainage of water in Lake Urmia in Iran between 1984 and 2014. Once the largest lake in the Middle East, with a surface area of approximately 5,200 km2 (2,000 sq mi), this salt lake has shrunk to less than 10% of its former size.Video: مانفی using NASA imagery
