Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Breaking: Climate Change Hoax Revealed! Wow, this is SUCH a relief! I was really ...
There is hope that we can create a thriving, healthy and abundant world, but we have to do more than hope. We must take action to transform from the inside-out (personal change), ground-up (infrastructure, built environment and supply-chain) and top-down (government, corporations and regulatory environment).
It breaks my heart to lose the house and not walk away from it as we had originally planned, but no matter what I must forge ahead and show my daughter what it means to make lemonade out of lemons and make that lemonade a bit sweeter.
The rest of the world fully understands that a nation going forward, in this century, must have a highly educated population. Historically, this same commitment has not been partisan in the United States.
The healthcare industry is a longstanding anchor in many urban centers. Poised to add nearly 5 million jobs to the economy over the next decade, this industry is uniquely positioned to expand job creation and wealth-building opportunities to some of our country's most economically vulnerable communities.
Today's lackluster employment report shows that despite substantial job market improvements over the last year or so, the Federal Reserve should not yet start raising interest rates to prevent the economy from overheating and producing unacceptable inflation. There's still too much labor market "slack" for the Fed to shift its chief concern to the risk of too much inflation.
An explosive new blog post at AdvisorHub purports to quote a high-ranking Morgan Stanley executive deriding the notion that Wall Street would ever allow a real fiduciary standard to be applied to its business.

While I think it's very unlikely that the 126,000 payroll gain marks a new, much slower trend in job growth, there are reasons for caution, especially at the Federal Reserve. This job market has fooled us before, with more head fakes then an NCAA point guard.
Many students expect and in fact prefer a hands-on approach to teaching as opposed to lecturing. Today's students are digital natives and thrive on all things technical and web-based.
Using data on economic recessions, I take a look at how long growth periods have been after recessions, and to see when the latest economic boom will likely come to an end. You're probably thinking "Economic boom? When did that take place?"
If we can roll up our sleeves and get organized and serious about really tackling the system question, about building a new system of political economy, there are grounds for optimism that deep and far-reaching change is possible.
Why should we trust the same billionaires responsible for the largest wave of minority home foreclosures in U.S. history with boosting student achievement? The answer is, we shouldn't.
Palestinian refugees need employment more than handouts. Calling for support, not only through donations, but through livelihood, is crucial. Only a sustainable aid model will empower those with no rights.
Some of you may wonder why I sent an email to one of the busiest CEOs on the planet. Well, aside from the fact that Mr. Cook occasionally replies to emails from users, there is also sense of urgency in showcasing Puerto Rico to the world.
Despite the U.S. economic recovery, low-wage jobs have accounted for almost 60 percent of the employment gains since 2010. As a result, the number of low-income working families has been growing and now represents almost a third of all U.S. working families.
We have to remember that the same banks responsible for so much of the financial strife, confusion, and crisis are guided by social forces. When we believe our financial systems are beyond our control, we neglect our responsibility to those most impacted by its flaws.
