Here's a quick rundown from the world of business and economics this morning: the things you need to know, and some you'll just want to know.

• It was a good day in the desert for Boeing (BA), as Persian Gulf airlines placed several huge orders to open the Dubai Air Show. Dubai-based Emirates Airline ordered 150 new Boeing 777-Xs at a price of $76 billion. Nor did Emirates leave out Airbus, ordering 50 A380s for $23 billion. Other deals for Boeing came from Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways and Lufthansa, which picked up a total of 109 777-Xs.

• When a customer has a bad experience, a common response nowadays is to vent their frustrations in a scathing online review. And given the First Amendment, you'd think that there would be little the company in question could do about it, as long as the review didn't rise to libel or slander. But that isn't stopping a company called Kleargear.com from trying: In response to one couple's negative review, the company hit them with a $3,500 fine, and damaged their credit.

• American society may be deeply divided on issues around guns and gun control, but for investors, Quartz reports, the numbers point in a fairly clear direction: America's firearms industry is probably still a buy.

• In the latest Apple (AAPL) vs. Microsoft (MSFT) news, an interesting tidbit. There are reports that Apple has spent $345 million to buy an Israeli chipmaker whose 3-D machine vision technology was used, among other things, to power the XBox Kinect.

• And finally, the ex-chairman of one of the Great Britain's largest retail banks was caught buying cocaine in a sting by a tabloid newspaper, CNBC reports. He was also caught on camera discussing his use of ketamine and crystal meth, and there are allegations that he'd smoked crack as well.

ooooooooooooooh yes HOT -AMN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we absolutely MUST KNOW ABOUT THIS.

listen.........anyone with children,handicapped adults--YOU REMAIN under threat from either CPS or APS and then PROBATE courts which HANDLE guardianship in MANY STATES.
now in CERTAIN STATES,guardianship IS A MUST due to BS legislation which ALLOWS mentally impaired ADULT AGED to sign CONSENTS--HOW ? most likely LIBTURDIA LEGISLATION and JUNK LEGISLATION aaaaaaaaaaaaand THEIR MONEY MAKER.
ALL guardianship DOES IS MAKE YOUR ADULT AGED KID A WARD OF THE STATE--research it as the LOIYUUHS do NOT GET INTO THIS ASPECT,
NOW BOTH CPS and these probate courts ARE NOT COURTS as YOU HAVE NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS and these social workers/CPS and COURT APPOINTEES ad litems in the probate courts CAN AND DO SPEW TOTAL LIES-

AND THEIR LIES which ARE NOT SWORN TESTIMONY in MOST CASES.simply THEIR ALLEGED INVESTIGATIONS though in some CPS hearings...go to TRIAL and the BS LIES CONTINUE==
THIS RESULTS IN THE DESTRUCTION OF INTACT,NONABUSIVE AND CAPABLE FAMILIES BEING DESTROYED.

well FINALLY the LAWSUITS BANGING BACK HAVE BEGUN,and THEY ARE GETTING THEIR DAY IN COURT--perjury etc FINALLY

now getting the atty has ALWAYS BEEN hard and basically IMPOSSIBLE--so there are a FEW out here HELPING OTHERS TO GET THIS DONE.

RESEARCH sue CPS and win--
THIS IS NOT SPAM--aol and all the REST have shut down MESSAGE BOARDS and these finance pages REMAIN UNMODERATED and UNCENSORED.

PLEASE LEAVE THIS UP and do YOURSELF and YOUR families a favour and RESEARCH PROBATE GUARDIANSHIP and of course CPS--

they way THEY are SUING CPS ??? we are optimistic that ENOUGH WAKE UP to the REALITIES of probate courts,ASSIGNED GUARDIANS via these SAME COURTS and the AUTHENTIC ABUSE and charactor assasination that CONTINUES leading to PERMANENT REMOVAL of your ADULT AGED MENTALLY IMPaired kids and EVEN adults that had SEVERE MEDICAL PROBLEMS WINDING UP IN THIS SAME BS SYSTEM DUE TO TEMPORARY IMPAIRMENT and LOSING homes and any bank accounts etc all DUE TO COURT ASSIGNED guardians ad litem.
families destroyed DUE TO court appointed guardians ad litem PROHIBITING VISITS ,phone calls etc---THIS IS FOR REAL---look at what THEY DID TO THERESA SCHIAVO---her guardian was that POS husband and he REFUSED HER FAMILY THEIR RIGHTS to simply TAKE HER HOME--
STOP THEM.
get involved as the WAY THINGS ARE GOING EVERYONE WILL WIND UP THROUGH THIS SYSTEM.
