    Citigroup's settlement was to compensate investors who lost Money on mortgage assets
    A US judge has rejected a $285m (£184m) settlement between Citigroup and Wall Street's regulator, the SEC, over the sale of toxic mortgages.

    Federal court judge Jed Rakoff ordered a trial, saying the settlement was "neither reasonable, nor fair, nor adequate, nor in the public interest".

    The SEC claimed Citigroup sold $1bn worth of Mortgage Assets and then bet that their value would fall.

    Neither the SEC nor the US's third-largest bank had any immediate comment.

    In a written opinion, the Manhattan judge said the allegations against Citigroup should go to trial.

    Under the settlement, agreed in October, Citigroup was to pay $285m to compensate investors for losses on the mortgage assets, which plunged in value months after the bank sold them in 2007.

  • Comprehensive List of Christian Metal and Rock Bands

    1. Apr. 2011, 21:15 von mrmichel0927


    This list is not all-inclusive, as I am mortal, and cannot know every band that exists, especially in the underground scene. Also, I am sure to have forgotten some. If you have a band(s) that you want me to add to the list, simply post it and I'll get around to adding it. The criteria is simply a metal or rock band that is Christian. I'm sure I'm not 100% accurate with the genres, they are a general guide to help people out. But feel free to argue with me if you think I'm crazy! The purpose of this is hopefully to provide those who like this type of music with a resource to find new bands.

    Bands with an apostrophe in their name ( ' ) will not link with code. If anyone knows a solution to this issue, please leave a shout. Otherwise, links to the band's page has been provided for your convenience. Please report broken links in the shoutbox.

    A special thank you to everyone who has suggested a band name to add to this list, which is growing all the time. Spread it around to your friends!

    the bands below represent what's in my mp3 player at the moment. and these are just some lines (favorite and whatnot) from the songs of the bands below. two bands have two lines because there are two albums of each on the ipod at the moment.
    your task is - to guess which lyric belongs to which band and what's the name of the song. let the game begin!

    1) though my knees become weak, I will cause my foot another step to carry the task
    2) I knew this girl named Jessie, kept her life messy
    3) but I sit at a banquet for traitors placed here between a thief and a liar
    Oh, Sleeper - A Banquet For Traitors
    4) I didn't know what I was looking for but I found it when I took your hand
    Maylene and the Sons of Disaster - Listen Close
    5) and I didn't shave today, I probably won't tomorrow
    6) Jesus, I want to know you, I lay my life before You.
    7) we must relieve the suffering / we will liberate the captive
    8) and come what may, I'll still be here
