The worst of the "recession" is yet to hit. When it does, they will finally stop calling it a recession. Depressing though this is, it seems inescapable.  "Quantitative easing" can only lead to serious inflation, which is a huge burden on those who can least afford it.

The US government is effectively a subsidiary of Monsanto.  The good of the American people is entirely irrelevant. What Monsanto wants is all that matters. And it seems what they want is to poison America with their cancer causing products.  At that they are doing an excellent job. The FDA and EPA are also under Monsanto's control; truly the fox is "guarding" the hen house.

A study of 16 European countries from 1969-1994 found that “more generous paid leave is found to reduce deaths of infants and young children”; specifically, mathematical models found that
"a 10-week increase in paid leave is predicted to reduce infant mortality rates by between 2.5% and 3.4%,"
"a 10-week extension [in leave] is predicted to decrease post-neonatal deaths by 3.7 to 4.5% and child fatalities by 3.3 to 3.5%," and
"rights to a year of job-protected paid leave are associated with roughly a 20% decline in post-neonatal deaths and a 15% decrease in fatalities occurring between the first and fifth birthdays"

A more recent study again of 16 European countries plus the USA and Japan found that “a 10-week extension in job-protected paid leave is predicted to decrease infant mortality rates, post-neonatal mortality rates, and child mortality rates by 2.6%, 4.1%, and 3%, respectively” but that these effects were not found if the leave was not job-protected or paid.

Women who receive pad leave are more likely to be employed, 54% more likely to report wage increases, and have a 39% lower likelihood of receiving public assistance and a 40% lower likelihood of receiving food stamps in the year after the child’s birth; men were also less likely to receive public assistance and food stamps if they received paid family leave.

"Maternity leave legislation in Europe effectively increases job protection and female labour market attachment".

"An increase in leave duration is associated with a decrease in [post-partum] depressive symptoms until six months postpartum".

"Shorter maternity leave (<12 weeks) was associated with higher maternal depression, lower parental preoccupation with the infant, less knowledge of infant development, more negative impact of birth on self-esteem and marriage, and higher career centrality".

"Breastfeeding duration increased sharply, by over a month, and the proportion of mothers attaining the public health benchmark of 6 months exclusive breastfeeding increased by nearly 40% [after Canada increased the length of mandated paid maternity leave]".

"Maternity leave led to small increases in birth weight, decreases in the likelihood of a premature birth, and substantial decreases in infant mortality for children of college-educated and married mothers, who were most able to take advantage of unpaid leave [in the US]".

"Increased time with the child [due to mandated maternity leave in Norway] led to a 2.7 percentage points decline in high school dropout and a 5% increase in wages at age 30".

"Children whose mothers return to work early are less likely to receive regular medical checkups and breastfeeding in the first year of life, as well as to have all of their DPT/Oral Polio immunisations (in approximately the first 18 months of life)" and "children whose mothers return full-time within 12 weeks are more likely to have externalising behaviour problems at age 4"

I have lost so much respect for the walking dead over the last season and a half. It is now pretty much ruined for me.

Their food used to be okay but they have changed very much for the worse. Skimpy with cheese on a cheese pizza and the appetizer would have been better if they had bought it frozen from Kroger. It was definitely just some frozen garbage. A complete waste. If Yu want good beers and don't want to eat then you'll be fine. Great beers terrible food. They need to do a complete overhaul and get a good chef that has the right to change where things are ordered from.
