Davos prescriptions for the U.S. economy
Reuters.com - about 4 years
DAVOS, Switzerland – Get ready for a new elite consensus on the U.S. budget deficit. One of the functions of the World Economic Forum – decide for yourself whether this is a virtue or a vice – is to give the plutocrats a venue for figuring out their party line. Think of it as crowdsourcing for the 0.1 percent. For a long time, the conventional wisdom among this crew has been that the deficit and the debt were the United States’ chief economic problems. That’s why I wasn’t surprised when Martin Sorrell, the head of the global communications giant WPP, referred to the deficit as the country’s most important economic issue at a breakfast discussion he moderated at the forum this week. The conversation was off the record, but when I asked Sorrell if I could quote his comment, he happily doubled down: Not only was the deficit the United States’ most important economic woe, it was the most important economic issue in the entire world. “This is the world’s gray swan,” Sorrell told me, in ...

Leeds nostalgia: Fifty years since the city screamed to the sounds of The Beatles
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Fifty years ago today, (Sept 29) one of the biggest singles of all time was released and just over a year later the band behind Love Me Do, The Beatles came to Leeds. It was the first of several visits to the city, each of which gave countless teenage fans (mostly girls) the chance to scream their hearts out. The fab four first performed at the Queen’s Hall in 1963, on the same bill as Acker Bilk. They came again on June 5, 1963 and on that occasion, dozens of police were employed for crowd control. In addition to throwing assorted items of underwear on stage, the mainly female crowd pelted the mop-tops with pounds of Jelly Babies, because Ringo Starr had recently expressed a liking for them. Former policeman Alex Jones, who was on duty that night, recalled John Lennon was hit on the head by a cigarette lighter, which caused him to utter a swear word. Although the group weren’t due to perform until 6pm, by 4pm a large crowd had gathered outside and whenever any of the band so muc ...

Man Saves Drowning Child, Gets Stuck With Huge Medical Bill
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Maybe good deeds do go unpunished -- it just takes the help of a local TV report. Last month, 17-year-old Vancouver, Washington, resident John Clark heard the screams of a 12-year-old boy drowning off the Oregon coast, KOIN 6 reports. Rather than let the boy drown, Clark -- just days after receiving his lifeguard certification -- swam out and saved the his life. Clark was then promptly repaid for his bravery with a $2,600 medical bill, $1,907 originating solely from a 15-mile ambulance ride to the local hospital after he reported having a headache. John's parents are just two of the nearly 800,000 Washingtonians who are uninsured. Some 81 percent of people without insurance report to holding off getting proper medical treatment for fear of costs, a fear justified by John Clark's experience. Luckily for Clark, scores of people from across the country reportedly called the local station after seeing his story and offered to give some financial assistance. Clark isn ...

Police Shoot Dog in Animal Attack on Fornance & Juniper Streets
Norristown Patch - almost 5 years
According to reports from the Norrisotwn Police Department, officers were called to the area of Fornance and Juniper streets on Wednesday, May 9, shortly after 2:30 p.m. for a report of an aggressive dog attacking people in the area. Once on the scene, officers observed a large black dog jumping on blue car in an apparent attempt to get at a man and three women inside. A fourth man outside the vehicle was attempting to keep the animal at bay by kicking it. The dog eventually retreated back towards a yard later identified as the property of its owner. As the dog retreated, it caught site of a responding officer and advanced in his direction in an aggresive manner. The officer drew his service weapon, aimed at the animal and gave a loud verbal command to the dog's owner, later identified as 48-year-old John Clark Daywalt, of the 1300 block of Markley Street, to control his animal. Police say Daywalt identified himself as the owner and told officers to "go ahead and shoot it." The d ...

SpaceX chief wants to be spaceflier
MSNBC- Cosmic Log - almost 5 years
SpaceX founder Elon Musk links the aims of his various companies together and explains why he'd rather be engineering than lobbying in Washington. By Alan Boyle Follow @b0yle The billionaire founder of the SpaceX rocket venture, Elon Musk, says that within five years he wants to make orbital space trips available to regular passengers — including himself. And if he sticks to his timeline, Musk just might go beyond Earth orbit before NASA's Orion spaceships do. "Am hoping to travel to orbit in about 5 years, beyond in 7 to 10," he wrote during a Twitter chat organized by The Associated Press. Later, he said it would be "5 years max before we fly civilians." That suggests that Musk is aiming to take an orbital trip in 2017 or so, along with paying passengers, and follow that up with more ambitious journey beyond Earth orbit in the 2019-2022 time frame. In comparison, NASA's current schedule calls for astronauts to launch aboard its Orion multipurpose crew vehicle, the f ...

Patti Hartigan of The Boston Globe described the play as a "triumph", and Lloyd Rose of The Washington Post said of Redgrave's performance in Clark's production, "Particularly when she is not speaking, her face can seem to hold an impossible number of emotions simultaneously, yet such fullness of feeling is mysteriously unreadable.
