Doing the math

amylin-160.gifAmylin posts wider second-quarter net loss

Revenue rose nearly 13 percent to $222 million, beating the analysts’ target of $224.3 million. Net sales of diabetes drug Byetta, which Amylin co-markets with Eli Lilly and Co, rose 17 percent to $177.5 million

If the analysts expected $224.3 million in revenue and amylin delivered $222 million, how did amylin “beat the estimates”?

Just a note on the Article “World’s oldest Joke…” Thu Jul 31, 2008 11:01am EDT

I thought that there was a difference between Jokes and riddles. The world’s oldest jokes are actually riddles. (Otherwise Batman would not have had two adversaries.)

Is it just me, or has the word “Joke” been adulterated ?
(that’s a question, not a riddle.)
