United States Debt By President

I haven't updated a posting on the federal government debt for some time and thought, in light of the recent White House budget and, in advance of the mid-2015 deadline for raising the debt ceiling and the fact that Washington will technically reach the debt limit on March 15th, I thought that it was time to revisit my debt-by-President information to give us a sense of how the United States became the world's largest debtor state.   {ads1}For the purposes of this posting, I source the data from the TreasuryDirect website which provides the public with a year-by-year and month-by-month update of the debt position and debt activity.  I have gone back to the Kennedy Administration and have used the debt figures for the end of the month of January during each...

15-Yr-Old Boy Stabbed to Death on North London Street

A 15-year-old boy, Alan Cartwright, was stabbed to death while cycled along a north London street with friends last night. Cartwright was confronted by three men on Caledonian Road, Islington, which resulted in his death soon afterwards. Although he managed to continue cycling a short distance after he was stabbed, he collapsed shortly afterwards and died on the street. According to the police, the attackers stole two of the teenager's friends' bikes before fleeing.  Consequently, police has started a murder probe and are searching the area for evidence. Whereas a post-mortem report is due later.  Cartwright’s friends and well-wishers took to Twitter to pay tribute to Alan, including one who tweeted: 'so sad that another Islington kid taken so soon. Thinking of your family at this sad time.' Another added: 'Devastated isn't... Read more

Tax Avoidance and the Greek Debt Crisis

With Greece and its debt problems still in the news five and a half years after it began and four years after it reached the critical point in June 2011, the country still has to find a long-term solution to its $374.5 billion potential debt default.  As it stands now, Greece's debt is 168 percent of GDP and it is accruing interest at $28.1 billion annually.   A paper by Nikolaos Artavanis, Adair Morse and Margarita Tsoutsoura at the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago examines one of the key issues that worsened Greece's fiscal health.  The authors use an interesting approach to estimate income tax evasion from Greece's private sector by examining the amount that banks lend to individuals.  They note that banks are most likely to lend...

Cuba's Oil Potential - Is It a Motivating Factor For Ending the Embargo?

The thawing of relations between the United States and Cuba after fifty years of pointless embargo is interesting, particularly given that American business investments that were nationalized in 1959, may at some point be reopened to U.S.-based companies.  As a petroleum geoscientist and a world class cynic, my mind naturally turns to oil, the hydrocarbon that lubricates the world's economy.  As you will see in this posting, Cuba appears to have potential for significant hydrocarbon reserves.   Under the current embargo, Cuba cannot access U.S. oilfield equipment for both drilling and environmental protection.  The embargo prohibits the exporting and re-exporting of items that contain more than 10 percent American components under the De Minimus Rule under Sections 734.4 and 736.2 (b)(2) of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).  What is particularly interesting about the...

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

QBs Recovering from Offseason Surgeries as NFL Training Camps Open

It has been an off-season of recuperation for a number of NFL quarterbacks who underwent surgery in recent months. With training camps now getting into full swing, all eyes will be on these recovering stars, whose health is critical to their teams’ success in the upcoming NFL season. Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton underwent surgery in late March to repair an ankle injury suffered in the Panthers’ 23-10 NFC Divisional Playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. While Newton has undergone extensive rehab prior to training camp, and is medically cleared for full workouts, he is expected to need all of camp to regain his form ahead of the start of the regular season. Last season, Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and their first NFC South title since 2008.... Read more

He also came face to face with the men and women who return from Afghanistan with visual and hidden wounds from war. That experience affected Lennie deeply as he came to realize it a small way the men and women suffer when then come home to Canada.

Preview: Matthew Bourne’s Edward Scissorhands

I don’t know about you, but Danny Elfman’s score from Tim Burton’s dark 90s fairytale Edward Scissorhandssends goosebumps down my spine. So when we heard about Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures turning the story into a ballet, we couldn’t wait for it to tour to the North West – and here it is! The Guardian have already called the show “enchanting and raptly emotional” so we were first in line when it came to bagging a pair of tickets for the opening night. Edward Scissorhands tells the bittersweet tale of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving Edward alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, he must find his place in a strange suburban world where the well-meaning and stifling community struggle to see past his appearance to the innocence and gentleness within...

Mazda3 GT: attainable status symbol?

Mazda3 GT: attainable status symbol?

The 2015 Mazda3 GT reviewed in the deep of winter. Is the Mazda3 GT as good as it gets when it comes to affordable, sporty compact cars? It could very well be. Two weeks in the 2015 Mazda3 GT revealed the taught, shapely sedan to be a comfortable, refined performer, and a surprisingly good vehicle for tackling the worst of Canadian winters. It's not hard on the eyes, either. When the third-generation Mazda3 debuted for the 2014 model year, the cartoonish 'smile' that adorned the front end of the previous generation had been wiped away, replaced with a mature and subtly elegant look. Mazda likens its company-wide KODO design language to a cheetah pouncing on prey, which isn't a bad metaphor. Viewed from any angle, the Mazda3's long hood, short deck and curvaceous flanks hint at the proportions of a classic Jaguar E-Type of the... Read more

Coming to English This Summer: Fadi Zaghmout’s Controversial, Feminist ‘Bride of Amman

This summer, Fadi Zaghmout’s debut novel, The Bride of Amman, will be released in English, trans. Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp: When blogger Nadia Muhanna wrote about the book back in 2012, nine months after its release, she gave a sense of Zaghmout’s social project, as well as why the blog-turned-novel had stirred controversy: In an interview on Roya Jordanian TV channel with writer and blogger Fadi Zaghmout, the presenter referred to a gay character in Zaghmout’s novel ’Arous Amman as shaz (an offensive term to describe gays, similar to faggot). „Muthley,” Zaghmout corrected her using a politically correct word for “homosexual”. By the end of the interview, the presenter was using „LGBT-friendly language”. But it wasn’t only The Bride of Amman’s content that made it controversial. Again, Muhanna: Zaghmout divided his novel into short, blog like sections written in a simple language often... Read more

What Happened to Saving Money?

What Happened to Saving Money?

There is one aspect of the economy that receives relatively little coverage by the mainstream media.  Perhaps because it's not as "sexy" as its employment, GDP and housing data peers, personal savings data seems to make the financial pages only when it is part of a discussion about retirement.  In this posting, I'd like to take a look at what has happened to savings by American households over the long-term and since the end of the Great Recession.   Let's start by looking at the personal savings rate, the rate of savings as a percentage of disposable income, since 1959:   Other than the spike to 17 percent in 1975 and the trough to 3.8 percent in 1987, the personal savings rate spent most of the decades between 1960 and 1990 in a range between...

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

No New Apple MacBook Air 2015 – Media and Apple Fans Jilted

For weeks the Apple Media had predicted the new MacBook Air on February 24, 2015 – someone forgot to invite Apple By Stephen Pate – The Mac Press corps – 9to5 Mac, MacRumors  and Cult of Mac – have been predicting a refresh at least and possibly a Retina version of the popular MacBook Air, AKA MacBook Air 2015. The MacBook Air is without a doubt the most popular laptop and ultra portable computer. The stylish aluminum thin body and top performance have made the MacBook Air the most desired portable computer.  Owning one is a class act. The predictions of a new 12&Prime MacBook Air have been getting hotter and hotter. The new version of the 4-year-old design will be thinner again by using the 5th generation Intel Broadwell processors. The Dell XPS 13... Read more

When Children View Pornography Parenting Guide to a Child

It is the most charming time of your life when you become a parent, but this happiness comes with a great sense of responsibility for both the life partners. It is usually said that the real importance of our parents is discovered when we ourselves become one. This is due to the fact that we realize how our parents struggled, and what they actually went through to bring up children like us, because when kids grow up, they observe the world around them more curiously than you, owing to the inquisitive nature children exhibit. Hence, this inquisition needs to be monitored especially when you give them android phones, tablets and laptops at the age before maturity. Today’s generation has more knowledge about the latest technology than you; even if they do not... Read more

MADONNA IS WEARING HER DIAMOND GRILL AND PLATFORM BOOTS AND DOESN’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK

{ads1}Madonna has a new mission: to end ageism. And women everywhere should back her up on this. Madonna is 56 and she endures horrible insults because of the way she dresses. She says she has no intention of changing her style because she’s no longer in her 20’s. While it’s not socially acceptable to discriminate against gays or blacks, somehow it has become okay to criticize women’s looks and choices as they get older. Not men, just women. “It’s still a sexist society.” She’s right. Photo Credit: AKM-GSI Click HERE to read more from Janet Charlton Read more

Movie Review Dum Laga Ke Haisha

Reviews, Friday, February 27th 2015

What's common to Katrina Kaif, Rekha, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Preity Zinta, Parveen Babi, Neetu Singh? Well, besides the fact that they are all talented and look eternally beautiful in their hourglass figures, they all are the quintessential 'Yash Raj heroine'. Yash Raj Films (YRF), which has always been synonymous with Swiss Alps, chiffon sarees and its choice of heroines, for the first time ever, introduces a 'weighty heroine', named Bhumi Pednekar in this week's release DUM LAGA KE HAISHA. Does YRF's 'latest discovery' live upto the reputation and the hype that goes hand in hand with every YRF discovery, and does size really matter in this film, lets analyze. {ads1}The film (set in circa 1995 in Haridwar), starts off with a self introduction of a neither qualified nor talented...

Movie Preview Hey Bro

Previews, Wednesday, February 25th 2015

'Hey Bro' is a comedy action drama film that depicts the journey of the very cute, innocent & love able 'GOPI' (Ganesh Acharya) from a small village in Rajasthan to Mumbai in search of his 'TWIN' brother (Maninder) & mother (Indrani) separated from him at birth. He doesn't have an address or any picture of his brother & mother, but to fulfil his DADAJI's (Prem Chopra) wish; he leaves the village in their search with his 'own picture' naively believing that his brother would look 'just like him' as 'twins always do', coz he had seen that in a lot of movies. {ads1}What follows is a roller coaster ride of fun, comedy & entertainment. The 'hunt' for his brother lands the 'bhola' GOPI, in a lot of crazy situations, the wrong... Read more

Bob Dylan on Tracks of My Tears

Bob Dylan praised or dissed Smokey Robinson’s “Tracks of My Tears” – which is it? Back in 1965 I remember a New York Herald Tribune story about hanging out with Bob Dylan when he seems to dis about Smokey Robinson’s “Tracks of my Tears”.  See One Night With Bob Dylan In New York 1965 “’I want to hear that record again,’ said Dylan, clattering back into the room…The record was “Since I Lost My Baby” by The Temptations and Dylan had played it several times during the day.” “’Do you think it’s as good as the Beethoven Quartets?’ someone asked.” “’I think it’s certainly as good as ‘Tracks of My Tears’,’ Dylan answered.” When we read that article in 1965, in the days of Bob Dylan the cool hipster, we weren’t sure if Dylan was pulling our...

Music Review Dum Laga Ke Haisha

Music :: Filmi, Wednesday, February 25th 2015

Expectations: The novel Aditya Chopra combination with Anu Malik sets the bar of our expectations very high as these two legends come together for the first time. Music: It can be called the song of the season, for such masterpieces are heard only once in a blue moon of late. Anu Malik sparkles with the dazzling classical nuances (especially in the third line that goes into komal notes) of 'Moh moh ke dhaage' with brilliant lyrics by Varun Grover and the perfect selection of singer Papon and also Monali Thakur. Getting meat they can rarely hope for in today's era, the two singers sink all their creative teeth into their respective solo versions of this fantastic and caressingly created musical gem. We will not be surprised if, like our older legends so effortlessly did... Read more

What is the Wage Inflation Relationship Telling Us?

What is the Wage Inflation Relationship Telling Us?

There are many employment statistics that play second fiddle to the headline U-3 data but two of them, the employment cost index and average hourly earnings, affect every American that still has a job.     Let's start by looking at the employment cost index (ECI).  This statistic measures the cost of workers' wages and salaries as well as benefits and bonuses at all levels in Corporate America.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics bases the ECI on a survey of employer payrolls...

Roman Abramovich Invests $15M In New US Fracking Technology

Markets, Wednesday, February 25th 2015

Are the Russians coming to Texas riding the tailwinds of fracking? That depends on who you ask, as some believe Russian forces were behind the anti-fracking vote in Denton, while a $15 million investment in new Texas fracking technology by Roman Abramovich perhaps tells another story. When the anti-fracking campaign started to heat up late last year in Denton, Texas—the heart of the shale revolution—conspiracy theories were spread from within the pro-fracking community that the Russians were behind the whole thing....

Guitar Savings With B-Stock and eBay

You can save money on guitars buying B-stock, used and on eBay. By Stephen Pate – You can save money buying B-stock guitars – guitars that have a minor finish problem or blemish. Generally B-stock means cosmetic not structural damage to the guitar. The guitar does not need a neck reset but has some smaller cosmetic issue. A guitar with structural damage would or should be repaired by the dealer before it is sold. Musicians Friend regularly lists off grade guitars along with the... Read more
