'America's Got Talent': 'Truck Drivers Aren't Supposed to Cry'


The first audition from Houston isThe Rhinestone Ropers, a Wild West skill show that may not be "Vegas" exactly but is impressive nonetheless. Dan does most of the actual tricks, with Melody acting as his victim assistant. Oops, spoke too soon as Melody shoots water balloons while spinning on a giant board. Very cool. They are through, of course.

The Ropers kick off a Good Montage: Mona Lisa, twin girls who sing "Killing Me Softly" and are decidedly better than those schmuck twins from last night; Charles Peachock, who juggles in black light, which is kinda meh for me, but he's through; and The Perfect Angels, a Hooters-esque dance troupe that has Piers drooling on his tie.

Daniel Joseph Baker is up next. He compares himself to Xtina, Lady Gaga and Nicole Scherzinger. Hmm. We'll see about that. It's great that he's proud of who he is, but that doesn't mean he has any particular talent. He sits down at the keyboard and does "Bad Romance" in his own way, kinda lounge-y, kinda burlesque-y. It's fun and very good, though his operatic pronunciation on "ro-mahhhhce" is annoying. He could dirty that up a bit, but overall excellent. Good for him. He is also through.


Five advantages of trading forex market .

1. 24 Hour Market: Since the forex market is worldwide, trading is continuous as long as there is a market open somewhere in the world. Trading starts when the markets open in Australia on Sunday evening, and ends after markets close in New York on Friday.

2. High Liquidity: Liquidity is the ability of an asset to be converted into cash quickly and without any price discount. In forex this means we can move large amounts of money into and out of foreign currency with minimal price movement.

3. Low Transaction Cost: In forex, typically the cost for a transaction is built into the price. It is called the spread. The spread is the difference between the buying and selling price.

4. Leverage: Forex Brokers allow traders to trade the market using leverage. Leverage is the ability to trade more money on the market than what is actually in the trader's account. If you were to trade at 50:1 leverage, you could trade $50 on the market for every $1 that was in your account. This means you could control a trade of $50,000 using only $1000 of capital.

5. Profit Potential from Rising and Falling Prices: The forex market has no restrictions for directional trading. This means, if you think a currency pair is going to increase in value; you can buy it, or go long. Similarly, if you think it could decrease in value you can sell it, or go short.
