Loneliness is an inevitable result of Britain's economic model (Nervous Nelly)

Hunt doesn't dispute those findings. Indeed, last week he brought forth some shockers of his own. Such stats should make tackling isolation a public-health priority for any government. This one, however, seems to be doing its best to increase loneliness: its bedroom tax and housing-benefit cuts are wrenching families out of their communities and driving them into other neighbourhoods, even other cities.

The Sixth Stage Of Collapse (Kevinoman0221)

Ideally, it would start of with a global financial collapse triggered by a catastrophic loss of confidence in the tools of globalized finance. That would swiftly morph into commercial collapse, caused by global supply chain disruption and cross-contagion. As business activity grinds to a halt and tax revenues dwindle to zero, political collapse wipes most large-scale political entities off the map, allowing small groups of people to revert to various forms of anarchic, autonomous self-governance. Those groups that have sufficient social cohesion, direct access to natural resources, and enough cultural wealth (in the form of face-to-face relationships and oral traditions) would survive while the rest swiftly perish.

Exclusive: Feds confiscate investigative reporter’s confidential files during raid (Wendy SD)

The document notes that her husband, Paul Flanagan, was found guilty in 1986 to resisting arrest in Prince George’s County. The warrant called for police to search the residence they share and seize all weapons and ammunition because he is prohibited under the law from possessing firearms.

CN hiding derailments, falsifying stats, employees allege (westcoastjan)

Hallman played down the suggestion that "internal measures" have any bearing on the company’s market value noting, “operating metrics such as yard dwell are performance indicators that are not included in any part of CN’s audited financial reports that are sent to shareholders and securities regulators.”

The implosion of the COMEX market and de-Americanization of the world (westcoastjan)

It is completely wrong to imagine that the "market price" is when the transaction is the price at which A = B. This price does not exist, there is always at least a small difference between the two. At best this "virtual market price" is an arithmetic average which corresponds to no actual transaction. ABCD are the only exact prices. All others are only approximations. Build arguments on approximations gives approximate results ... otherwise false.

Special Report: Help wanted in Fukushima: Low pay, high risks and gangsters (westcoastjan)

When Hayashi took his grievances to a firm on the next rung up the ladder of Fukushima contractors, he says he was fired. He filed a complaint but has not received any response from labor regulators for more than a year. All the eight companies involved, including embattled plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co, declined to comment or could not be reached for comment on his case.

China's Back-Door Natural Gas Supply (James B.)

One of the most critical changes in global energy flows we've seen for years happened this week. China inaugurated one of its boldest pipeline projects in recent memory. A 2,500 kilometre pipe to carry natural gas and oil from the Indian Ocean across Myanmar in southeast Asia and into southwest Yunnan province.

28 Signs That the West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried with Nuclear Radiation from Fukushima (Amanda)

Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean. That means that the total amount of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain.

Krugman is Funny

like toothache is funny.

The Japanese know how well they are doing- they have stopped breeding.

A woman cried out "Blessed is the womb that bore you and blessed is the breast that suckled you".

Christ said "Well may you cry out that blessed is the womb that bears and the breast that suckles, for the will come a time when blessed is the womb that bore none and the breast that suckled none."

The Gospel of St. Thomas.
