I doubt the system failure explanation on the part of Nasdaq. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars per year on ultra-high performance computing systems with redundancies at every level of the systems. It is extremely unlikely that a system failure occurred without an outside influence.

“On July 26, Capitola resident and nationally syndicated radio host Ethan Bearman, whose program “The Ethan Bearman Show” is based at KSCO in Santa Cruz, released the results of an online survey he conducted to gauge community opinions on the local needle exchange. Bearman describes the needle exchange controversy as a lightening rod issue for the community. Last year, many began voicing their outrage at finding syringes in public spaces, in some case on sidewalks outside their homes, and generally where they or their children could step on them.
Over the course of 10 days, Bearman got 558 responses—517 from Santa Cruz County locals—and although he acknowledges that it’s not a large enough sample size to reliably reflect opinions among the county’s approximate population of 266,000, he believes it can serve to provoke discussion.
“Ultimately,” Bearman says, “what drove me to do this survey was the disconnect that I heard between county supervisors and HSA representatives and what I was hearing from my callers and the people in my day-to-day interactions.”
He does not believe that local officials are taking community opinions about needle exchanges into account, and hopes the survey gets their attention.”
