Michael Moore Wants to Be in Hillary's Cabinet
Huffington Post - 4 months
Given the shameless, over-the-top, pro-Hillary promotional hype that Michael Moore has been spouting recently (roughly, since mid-July), the only explanation is that this man--this pride of Flint, Michigan, this modest film documentarian who grew up middle-class but is now worth upwards of $50 million--secretly harbors a desire to play a role in a Hillary Clinton administration. If not a Cabinet post, then something else. In fact, it's probably more likely he has his eye on an ambassadorship. He covets being posted in a laid-back country, a "resort country," a country with a temperate climate and friendly people, a country where they speak English and don't get all carried away with civil unrest. The Honorable Michael Francis Moore, U.S. Ambassador to the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It has a nice ring to it. Don't laugh. How do you think people get these ambassadorships? It's never been about one's "qualifications." Ambassadorships are handed out in return for loyal serv ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
On September 11, 2001, America saw the worst terrorist attack on its soil. But on September 12, 2001, America came together like never before. People across the country collectively sent New York City a surge of support that brought all of us a little closer. Families who lost loved ones have, over the years, turned tragedy into triumphs of human spirit. They've started nonprofits, initiatives and campaigns dedicated to improving lives in a variety of small and big ways. We've put together a list of the incredible people who paid it forward when just moving forward was hard enough. 1. The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund Every year the Bikers For Bini charity event honors firefighter Carl V. Bini whose crew headed straight for the Trade Center towers as they fell. The Carl V.

Carmageddon II: Demolition a labor of love for one bridge engineer
LATimes - over 4 years
For Michael Francis, Carmageddon is a labor of love three years in the making. The 49-year-old Caltrans senior bridge engineer has been on the Sepulveda Pass Widening Project since its inception in summer 2009. Francis describes his job as "making sure they've crossed all the Ts and dotted all the I's for the project." From an overlook south of the construction site Saturday afternoon, Francis watched chunks of concrete fall from a section of the Mulholland Drive bridge that is being demolished. The northbound side of the bridge will be widened as part of the $1-billion freeway improvement project that will also add a new 405 carpool lane.  "To finally see this milestone makes my hour-and-a-half drive every day seem worth it," said Francis, who commutes from Diamond Bar. Even though he had staff at the construction site through the night and into the early morning, Francis stayed out himself past 1 a.m. Saturday and showed up again before 9 a.m. He's invested years into th ...

Here Are 5 Execs Who Should Give Back Their Bonuses
Business Insider - over 4 years
Infuriated British parliamentarians argued yesterday that former Barclays CEO Bob Diamond lied to or misled their committee when he described his bank’s ties to the Financial Services Authority, Britain’s main markets regulator, as cordial and their view of his stewardship as favorable. Now he’s taking his punishment – kinda, sorta – for his role at the bank while it was actively engaged in fixing a key floating interest rate, giving his institution and its traders an unfair advantage and misleading the market about the real cost of capital. Diamond will relinquish a lavish package of bonus and incentive payments amounting to about $31 million – quite generous when compared to those offered to other City of London CEOs – although he’ll still pocket his salary for the year and other benefits worth more than $3 million more. That $31 million the company will save may look like chump change compared to the $450 million plus in fines levied on Barclays by British and American regulators ...

MARKETS RALLY AS THE FED MEETS: Here's What You Need To Know (MSFT, JPM, FDX, JCP)
Business Insider - over 4 years
Markets enjoyed a nice rally, led by strength in financials and a rumor that Angela Merkel would allow the EFSF to buy distressed sovereign debt. But first, the scoreboard: Dow: 12,837.3, +96 Nasdaq: 2,929.8, +34 S&P 500: 1,358.0, +13 Here's what you need to know. JPMorgan's chief executive Jamie Dimon returned to Washington for a second hearing, this time before the House Financial Services Committee about the company's $2 billion trading. Unlike the Senate hearing, Dimon was hit with a series of sharp questions from both sides of the aisle over derivative trading, the company's risk models, and if other banks would have failed had they undertaken a similar trade. A Greek coalition government is expected to be formed by midday tomorrow, missing earlier expectations for that to occur today. PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos told reporters today that his party would "sincerely" support the coalition, but that left-wing party Syriza would not participate in the negotiation ...

Another Councilman Joins Board of Health
Hopatcong Patch - almost 5 years
Another council member was named to Hopatcong's board of health Wednesday as the governing body looks to turn the board into a council-run entity. Howard Baker was appointed to the spot recently vacated by Yvonne Syto. Baker joins councilmen Michael Francis and John Young on the seven-member board. President Mariano Gianni, Vice President Thomas Forbes, Joell Servoss and James Vanderhoof round out the board. Mayor Sylvia Petillo recently announced plans to create a volunteer health advisory committee, charged with community health outreach but lacking the board's law-making power. Petillo said council members would fill in open board seats. Last week, Gianni said the board of health would refuse to recognize council-appointed alternates. "They have no right" to name alternates for the board, Gianni said. Gianni also said the council ignored its request to appoint a member in the place of Craig Bradley, who died last year. "They decided they wanted to put the town council ...
