Reading a Bank Statement

Remember that vocal minority of annoying customers I have been talking about? Apparently, many of them have the time and ability to check their bank/credit card statement several times a day, but no idea how to properly read what is on there. Let me explain with a few choice examples of what we frequently get in the customer service logs.

“You double charged me!”

We get this so often I get a little chill down my spine every time I hear the customer service reps in the next room dealing with it. The problem arises from those banks that are so helpful as to show authorizations on your card as well as the actual transaction. An authorization is when a company first checks to see if the money is available, and then later closes the authorization for either the amount checked or a part of it. The various business we all use to do this every day, such as pay at the pump gas stations and restaurants that allow for tips to be added later.

Simple concept, right? Apparently notAnother version of this is when we do issue a refund to a client, which appears as a credit on their statement. Somehow that +/- difference, sometimes shown in the typically accounting fashion with parenthesis surrounding the number is a difficult one to grasp. Even when it says “credit” next to the transaction we get people who assume this new line item on their statement means we have the gall to be charging them again. Pick up that phone and lay into a customer service rep, that’ll teach ‘em!

Reading a Bank Statement

The kicker is that those that don’t get this concept right off and take the time to call in and complain, either never get the concept or won’t back down on it. These people will hang on the phone forever arguing with reps that are sincerely trying to explain this in the simplest of terms. Our reps often will have to resort to asking the customer to fax in their statement as proof, which many do not do, likely because they finally realize their error. Yet, somehow we have customers that will fax things in only to show that it does, in fact, say “credit” or “authorization” right next to the transaction just like we are trying to explain.

“You need to refund every charge I have on here that is unauthorized”

This is another oft-repeated concept in a variety of ways. When people purchase products online, they seem to do it in spurts. I find this is true of myself in fact; though I try hard not to compare my spending habits to those I complain about here, they are on a much different level. Because our company actually answers the phone because are a legitimate company we tend to waste a fair amount of time trying to convince people that we cannot, in fact, provide customer service for other companies on their statement.

Reading a Bank Statement

Does this sound ridiculous to you? I hope so.

Sadly, their plenty of companies out there that try hard not to help their customers with billing customers as a part of their business model. Their modus operandi is to see if customers will just give up and let the business keep their money. We, on the other hand, feel good about the products we are offering, and though we deal with our share of loonies that we end up refunding, the bulk of our customer base is happy and enjoys the services we charge for.

Funny thing is, next to every charge on your statement is a “descriptor” that a business can customize with a limited number of characters to help customers identify the charge. We include our toll-free number as part of that descriptor to help customers get a hold of us, as do many other businesses. When our reps suspect a charge is not from us, they ask the customer to read off what it says next to the charge – no small feat in many cases – and even when it says another business name, the customer will refuse to believe it is not our company! No matter how hard I shake my head, I cannot get my mind to clear enough to understand the logic on this.

Our reps are repeatedly called liars, thieves and many other choice names when they continue to deny these charges are from us and therefore not our responsibility. Just today a lady just kept screaming “LIAR!” over and over to a nice girl on our end until she finally had to just hang up.

BCB – The Better Customer Bureau

I really am baffled out people like this can act this way to customer service reps. Even beyond that, I just don’t get how people that cannot read a statement or understand the concept of taking responsibility for their purchasing habits can feel justified in trying to bully their way into getting a charge refunded. I really think there needs to be some business reporting process that allows companies to report errant or fraudulent customers back to credit card issuers and banks. Some kind of flagging system so you have the ability to know if a “problem” customer has a history of buying and charging back items without basis. Though the eBay system is flawed in many ways, having some public accountability for their actions keeps many customers acting nicer than they might in a more anonymous world. Think of it as the Better Customer Bureau. I know there are many privacy issues and other flaws with this concept, but I’m here to tell you that most BBB and Consumer Protection Agency complaints I have seen over the years are just if not more flawed…

Semafo’s bumper gold quarter

New, higher grade deposits of gold are coming to bear on gold-miner Semafo’s production, buoying output and finances.

Semafo reported strong results in its latest quarter including 72,700 ounces in porduction at cash costs of $475 an ounce gold, versus 41,500 ounces gold at $604 an ounce last year.

The improvement – which looks to be one that will largely hold for Semafo – has been some time in the making after a change in strategy that started in 2012.

Semafo's bumper gold quarter

The course change was two pronged. Semafo decided to unload its high-cost Samira Hill gold mine in Niger and it discovered high-grade gold near its existing Wona-Kona deposit and nearby Mana processing plant in Burkina Faso.

Quickly after the discovery the focus turned to bringing the new ounces, in what became known as the Siou deposit, into the production fold once it was clear there was a substantial deposit. So far reserves have grown to 4.8 million tonnes gold @ 4.94 g/t Au.

These compare very favourably to reserves in Wona-Kona, which Semafo has been mining for some time, which holds 18.8 million tonnes @ 2.19 g/t Au in reserves.

So this quarter, with ore finally coming in at full steam from Siou and another higher grade deposit called Fofina, Semafo’s gold grades popped. It processed 723,900 tonnes ore @ 3.37 g/t gold versus 712,100 tonnes @ 2 g/t Au a year ago and meantime recoveries jumped from 85 to 93 percent.

Semafo's bumper gold quarter

The jump in recoveries owed to easier to process ore from Fofina and Siou, and Semafo also noted that grade was higher than it expected due to an enriched zone at Fofina.

Still, it was a mighty quarter for Semafo, bolstering its view it would meet the upper end of its 200,000 to 225,000 ounce gold forecast for production this year.

So it was not much of a surprise today to see Semafo’s shareprice leap, up 10 percent at presstime to C$5.29 and to new 52-week highs.

At last, some CEOs who understand the mining cycle

Mining companies are beset with major investors who browbeat the CEOs and the boards into making major capital cutbacks when metal prices move against them.

mining cycle 1They just don’t seem to understand that the time to build major capital projects – and make what may seem like expensive and counter-intuitive investment decisions and acquisitions – is actually at times when metal prices are low. This will enable them to reap the rewards when the mining cycle picks up again as it inevitably will. That is the way the world’s mega miners built their real wealth.

I am probably being unfair in the title here – there are probably plenty of mining CEOs who understand this but they more often than not don’t have the clout to carry their boards and major institutional investors with them. The latter, in particular, tend to look only at the bottom line and the prevailing stock price with their ultra short-term investment outlook, thereby missing the huge upside potential that lies ahead.

As the Elliott Wave followers will point out, all economies move in quite pronounced cycles – there are boom and bust scenarios which repeat over and over again through time – and the mining cycle is more pronounced than most. Major investment decisions are made as the cycle picks up and tend to peak at or near the cyclic top thus bringing big increases in supply on line at around the same time, leading to big surpluses and thus contributing strongly to the succeeding downturn with too much production chasing too little demand.

mining cycle 1The smart company that looks to the long term, though, will make its big capital project decisions on the cycle downturns and low points (downturns are good given the length of time it can take to bring a new project on stream nowadays). That’s how the Rio Tinto’s and BHP Billiton’s of the world became the world’s mega miners.

All credit therefore to Rio Tinto’s CEO, Sam Walsh, for slamming the company’s critics who pontificate that it is mad for it to implement major increases in its iron ore and copper production at a time prices have been slipping dramatically given the apparent downturn in Chinese and global demand. BHP Billiton, the world’s biggest diversified miner, has made similar policy decisions as no doubt have a few others waiting in the wings – notably X2 Resources’ Mick Davis, former Xstrata CEO, who is building a massive investment war chest to build a new diversified mining company by acquisition when prices are depressed.

True, these companies do have the financial resources to build production when others are being forced to cut back. There is strong method in their financial madness as seen by some. Take iron ore for example. Companies like Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Vale have enormous iron ore resources which can be mined profitably even at much lower iron ore prices than those prevailing at the moment and, of course, what the expansion policy has done is stop in their tracks global new iron ore mine developments predicated on higher iron ore prices from less well financially supported companies.

Much of the world’s unmined high quality iron ore is located in remote areas requiring huge infrastructure commitments to bring them on stream. The longer iron ore prices remain depressed, the further back investment decisions on these new projects will be put. This will allow the mega miners not only to dominate the iron ore market for many years to come, reap huge profits when prices pick up again as much of the competition will have been eradicated, but also to acquire many of the best new projects from their financially distressed owners.

mining cycle 1But of course this doesn’t only apply to iron ore. It will apply to coal and copper too – the other two most significant mined minerals/metals. Indeed iron ore, coal and copper hugely dominate global mining. Gold only comes a far distant fourth yet generates most of the coverage. Again BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto are among the Western world’s largest producers of both coal and copper. Continuing investment during low cycle points is how they achieved their dominant positions. Sam Walsh is thus quite right to slam the critics from a company long-term corporate standpoint. The policy will mean that when economies, and the cycle, pick up again Rio and its peers will be even more dominant in the global mining sector.

ETHIOPIAEthiopia is an African country known for its beautiful landscapes and its resistance against European powers. The state is the only African nation that managed to resist Europe’s imperialist tendencies, more precisely in the war against Italy. Although it’s actually better known for its poverty and famine, other elements of Ethiopian culture are acknowledged worldwide. We have our first coffee trees exploited in Ethiopia, in Kaffa, where its name comes from. It’s also one of the oldest civilizations, inhabited by Assyrians. The Olympics made its runners globally famous.

Coffee is not only a national product, but also indispensable when socializing. ‘Serving a coffee’ can be a full 2-hours ritual where people get to know each other; instead of sweets or pastries, popcorn is more popular. You’re supposed to enjoy the coffee; if you drink it hastily, they’ll think you don’t like the taste. The coffee is served according to the social hierarchy, starting with the eldest person. You may see everywhere that elders are greeted with a bow and so are people in a superior position. Ethiopians are known for their politeness and humility. They don’t like overconfident persons and are very respectful, even when they don’t like somebody. Sarcastic remarks or criticism means a loss of honor, which is the most sought after value to them.

ETHIOPIAEthiopia’s name is linked to Rastafarians. One of the emperors was called Tafari and ruled as a descendant of King Solomon. This historical figure is the subject of worship for Rastafarians. Ethiopians have a 13-months year and their current year is 2005. It’s also one of the earliest officially Christian nations. Ethiopian tribes may adhere to other beliefs, such as Mursi (better known for their lip plates than their deities).

As for sightseeing, you’ll have the best experience if you explore its nature, including its safari and a volcanic lake, and if you dare to eat Ethiopian food. They don’t use forks, only their right hands. Many spices flavor the meat and fruits and vegetables complete a serving. Festivals offer you the opportunity to learn about their traditions and art.

The wildlife reaches its peak in Kenya. The parks have many natural wonders, including one of the 7 World Wonders: the migration of savage animals in Maasai Mara Natural Reservation. The Maasai tribe lives in this area and is recognizable by its red-painted skin. A huge number of wildebeests periodically cross the border from Tanzania to Kenya, exposed to other animals’ attacks in their journey. Nowhere in the world does something so spectacular happen.KENYA

Nairobi National Park and Amboseli are equally impressive. The lakes are also rich in fauna and flora; the mountains can be challenging for climbers and offer great landscapes. In addition, Kenya was the ground of Ancient civilizations, so you should check Kariandusi’s archaeological sites. The Lamu Archipelago includes one of the oldest inhabited towns in Africa. Nairobi and Mombasa are the better-known cities, with various tourist destinations and a very exciting nightlife. Actually, besides coffee plantations, tourism is the most profitable ‘good’.


Kenyans live in communities and value togetherness and solidarity. They can be very friendly and don’t appreciate gossip. They despise selfishness and individualism. People like to hang out in big groups and most of them are passionate about dancing. Cavacha and zouk are popular, but the music in clubs tends to be very diverse. There are many stereotypes about Kenyans, such as the fact men can marry many women. This is very, very rare. It’s true though that cows are a symbolical price for a bride. The prejudice that Kenyans respect tribal deities and have weird rituals remains untrue. Most of them are Christian, either Protestant or Catholic, and less than 10% of the population still holds indigenous beliefs.


They do have some interesting superstitions. They don’t depart with any farewell by night — ‘Good Night’ means you’re wishing the death of that person. What you do at the beginning of the week, of the month or of the year is what you’ll have to go through for that whole period of time. So it’s nice to give someone money on the 1st of January or make them feel good, since it means they’ll have a great year.

Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

Everybody knows Hillary Clinton is running for president and – like last time – she’s acting like she’s already secured the nomination and will be elected.

We know how well that worked out for her last time.Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

So imagine the surprise when the poll for New Hampshire came out showing that Sanders has 31% to Hillary’s 41%.

The poll is meaningless in terms of predicting how either candidate will do nationally, but it does show that Hillary is far from a “done deal” this time around, especially considering she will also face competition (more serious than with Sanders) from former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley.

Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

Hillary has never been seen as a serious “progressive” by the Left. She’s the establishment candidate and too hawkish on foreign policy causes and too cozy with big corporations for the taste of Liberals. Bernie Sanders has no chance of winning anything except the protest vote but he will force Hillary to tack Left more than she’d like and he may siphon enough votes off if he runs as an independent nationally.

Think of Ross Perot costing George H.W. Bush enough votes to allow Bill Clinton to win back in 1992.

Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

The more momentum Sanders (and O’Malley) build the more Left wing wackos that will come out of the woodwork which will expose more and more Americans to just how extremist the Democratic party has become.

That is why I am hoping Sanders keeps gaining in the polls. What I think will likely happen is O’Malley will win the nomination but the Democrats will be so bloodied by the Leftist in-fighting that they will be heavily weakened and, unless a complete idiot wins the GOP nomination (i.e. Bush) Republicans will take control of the Executive branch.
