We just passed the 10-year anniversary of the Great Financial Crisis, the worst capital market meltdown since the Great Depression. Given that the Great Recession saw the US stock market shed $7.9 trillion in value (global market lost $34.4 trillion) and cost the US economy $22 trillion, it’s understandable that Americans and investors today fear a repeat of this disaster.

In other models, the planet’s people (creatures? beings?) delay switching the energy sources for too long. They all switch in the end, but the laggards still don’t make it. The population starts to fall, then appears to stabilize for a while, then rushes downward to extinction. Nobody saw that one coming, but it’s what the models are telling us.
This year, Justice Goodson is up for reelection — and JCN is back at it. They’ve already spent nearly $1 million in connection with the race, including on ads accusing Goodson of ethical violations, which an independent group of retired Arkansas judges determined to be “false and misleading.” JCN even launched a website to promote their allegations: greedygoodson.com. When Goodson sued to block TV stations from running the ads, one court issued a preliminary injunction, temporarily blocking JCN ads in some parts of the state. That case is on appeal at the Arkansas Court of Appeals.

It’s a pairing fraught with historical significance. Over the years, the metropolis has coped with various epidemics, from yellow fever in the early 19th century to HIV/AIDS in the 1980s.

In the years since, the retailer’s presence has been shrinking at those properties as space is leased to new, higher-paying tenants. Nearly a quarter of the former Sears stores still in Seritage’s portfolio are no longer in use by the retailer. Sears and its sister brand Kmart share space with at least one other tenant in about half the remaining occupied stores, according to the company’s most recent financial report. Sears and Kmart now account for less than half the rent Seritage collects each year.
To get the free coffee, university students must give away their names, phone numbers, email addresses and majors, or in Brown’s lingo, concentrations. Students also provide dates of birth and professional interests, entering all of the information in an online form. By doing so, the students also open themselves up to receiving information from corporate sponsors who pay the cafe to reach its clientele through logos, apps, digital advertisements on screens in stores and on mobile devices, signs, surveys and even baristas.

Parties and politicians who want to convince others of their point of view lay out the data, make their best case, and leave it to the electorate to weigh the arguments and exercise their capacity to reason.”
