Bsi 1.276.46 +19.09 +1.49

The first day of August marks the third straight session of gains.


Whitney Houston (WHH) 19.04 +2.31 +12.13%
Still recovering from having lost over half its value since meeting highs sixteen years ago -- Whitney Houston ends up in the winners column after a two year bounce back sparked by the shedding of Bobby Brown (BBB) on 2007.


Ray J  (RYJ) 5.01 -1.28 -20.43%

Never a big mover on the board, Ray J, who most analysts don't understand why its even listed, ends up down on the week.  Those bothering to rank the recent poor performer cite recent relationships as the reason for the downgrade.

Hell to the no!

Bsi 1,257.37 +44.19 +3.51

Continued gains in the technology sector lift the BSI as we leave July, especially in the NBA, which has demonstrated a particular faculty toward using the Internet to promote its brand and its athletes.

Yeah, I don't really know what they're doing here either, but it's funny... right?

"Boom Tho"... Could Smoove B have said it any better?

Bsi 1,213.18 +18.07 +1.48%

Integration is the catalyst that pushes the Index into positive territory after news that California prisons will no longer be segregated by race.  Analysts now look forward to a day when schools and neighborhoods follow suit.

Greetings from Thousand Oaks!

Bsi 1,195.11 -15.22 -1.25%

The Index moves less than the earth under Southern California today.

Capital Punishment

President Bush has authorized the execution of a prisoner sentenced to death by court marshall in 1988.  While the move makes Bush the first Commander in Chief in over fifty years to sign such a death warrant, analysts hardly find it surprising, considering the president's experience sending soldiers to their deaths.

Yeah, that's Dick Cheney behind him.

Bsi 1,210.33 +44.81 +3.7%

Bad news for Burger King is good news for the BSI as todays gains can be attributed to a Los Angeles City Council proposal that would place a one year moratorium on new fast food restaurants in many of the cities black and Hispanic majority neighborhoods.

The moratorium is designed to halt the further encroachment of cheap, unhealthy restaurant chains into neighborhoods disproportionally affected by incidences of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and other diet related diseases and illnesses.

"I'm lovin' it, Elizabeth!"

Fast food titan McDonald's, which has in the past been criticized for specifically targeting the African-American community with race specific advertising, came out against the proposed ban and representatives for the highly profitable Oak Brook, IL franchise denied that the company specifically targets African-American customers.

Uh-huh... sure you don't
