Sort of a Ponzi scheme spread out between at least three different companies: people invested in hedge fund A, he took money out of hedge fund B to pay A's investors, then took funds from pharma company C to pay in...
I suspect Shkrelli's convention is a result of "we don't like him, he has to have done something illegal, so find something to put him in prison with because we can't put him in prison for what we really dislike him for".

In 2011, roughly 65,000 Japanese citizens living near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant started measuring their own radiation exposure in the wake of the Tō...
Yeah, that's what Mo and I have been looking at. JasonL was the one saying that he's heard Induction doesn't do well with in-between temps or anything less than full on. i've heard the exact opposite -- you have a lot of control with induction and they're very responsive.
