Are you 'binge working'? The question is deadly serious
Thu Jan 23, 2014
Time for a crackdown against corporate slave-masters. Let's start with some strict laws protecting worker privacy: 1) No more credit checks on prospective employees. Your credit is none of a company's business. 2) No more peeing in a cup. What you do in your off hours is none of yo …
Bad news for whales and dolphins: Navy to expand sonar testing

The U.S. Navy had to greatly accelerate its active sonar program (the kind that puts a lot of acoustic energy in the water) after a subsidiary of the Japanese company Toshiba sold the secret of quiet U.S. submarines to the Russians in the 1980s. (See "Toshiba" in Wikipedia). Before that, we we …
GM: CEO-elect Barra chosen for talent, not gender
Wed Dec 11, 2013
GM finally placed a smart engineer at their CEO desk. Good for them! Now if Ford can just hold on to Alan Mulally (also a well-respected engineer who has Ford running well), US car companies will finally have a chance to compete with the Japanese and Koreans, who never adopted the bad ha …

Wed Dec 11, 2013

College enrollment going down, but will tuition fees follow?

So they expect this trigger happy a-hole to turn himself in? Puhleeze.
Why Washington is failing at 'too big to fail' regulations
Thu Oct 31, 2013
We need a president with the balls to take on the financial industry and cut them back to what they were prior to 1980, when Reagan let them out of the dog house. We need Elizabeth Warren in the White House, and we need her right now.
Gold rush sparked by global financial crisis devastates Amazon
Tue Oct 29, 2013
The dramatic rise in gold prices, and the subsequent environmentally destructive gold-mining in the Peruvian jungle are just further consequences of the criminal financial shenanigans of the banksters who caused the 2008 disaster. (Not to mention other consequences such as millions of jobs lost, hom …
