“There are thousands and thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet screaming desperation where they work long hard hours at jobs they hate which allows them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like. Now it’s my contention that going to work on Friday in jeans and t-shirt is not really getting to the nut of the issue.” ~ Nigel Marsh

Thousands & thousands? Anyone think it's higher than that? I do. I came across this quote from Adam Baker's Ted Talk. Watch it here: TEDxAsheville - Adam Baker - Sell your crap. Pay your debt. Do what you love.

Emergency Alert: Tropical Storm Sendong

Tropical Storm Sendong (international name: Washi) ravaged Mindanao, slamming it with devastating rains and unleashing flash floods and landslides that have left a horrifying trail of destruction. As of 12PM, the death toll has reached 720 (Cagayan De Oro 346, Iligan City 279, Bukidnon 47, Negros Oriental 37, Lanao del Norte 9, Compostela Valley 5, Zamboanga del Norte 3, Surigao del Sur 1). Most of the dead were asleep in the middle of the night on Friday when raging floodwaters pounded their homes from rivers and cascaded
from mountain slopes following 12 straight hours of heavy rains in Mindanao. Drowning has been identified as the main cause of death. Sendong affected 21 municipalities, 78 barangays and 13,924 families (63,779 persons), with 245 injured and 807 reported missing. 3,422 houses were totally or partially damaged and there are still 38,332 persons housed in evacuation centers to date.

There are currently 7,431 persons in 4 evacuation centers in Iligan City, which was consumed by flashfloods last night after the heavy downpour of rains. Cagayan De Oro, which has now been placed undera state of calamity, experienced 180 mm of rainfall in less than 24 hours, which has led to massivefloods in 23 of its 80 barangays, leaving about 20,000 residents in evacuation centers. Prior to theonslaught of Sendong in Zamboanga del Norte, about 143 persons had already evacuated their houseswhich were destructed by flash floods that swept the municipality of Polanco as well as Dipolog andDapitan cities. Dapitan River had overflown early yesterday morning which flooded several barangaysin Dapitan.

Philippine Red Cross (PRC) maintains strict 24-hour monitoring of all situations in Mindanao, whilenearly 700 PRC staff and volunteers deployed in the field are conducting detailed assessments. Searchand rescue teams have been mobilized and hot meals have been prepared and distributed in evacuationcenters. Welfare desks, psychosocial support and first aid stations have been situated in the evacuationcenters for affected families. PRC has provided support by giving food packs, sleeping materials,hygiene kits, dinnerware, water containers, body bags and slippers.

Sendong is the 19th tropical cyclone to lash the Philippines this year. As we wage this battle againstdisasters, we are appealing for immediate cash assistance to continue providing relief and recoveryefforts for all affected communities. We are counting on your support to be able to provide food, non-fooditems (including kitchen ware, dinner sets, cleaning materials, latrines, medicine, livelihood programs andshelter) and our services to the most vulnerable Filipinos in the hardest hit cities and provinces.

We appreciate your generosity and continued support to the Philippine Red Cross. Thank you!

The question we should all ask is: What would make this economy grow? What has stopped it from growing much over the last few years - indeed over much of the last decade?

One theory heard a lot these days is that the economy is burdened by excessive government regulation, interference and taxes. Cut them, the Republican candidates all say, and the economy will be unleashed.

It's a compelling picture, but the data simply do not support it.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released a study last week measuring tax revenue as a percentage of GDP. Of the 30 countries studied, the United States came in 27th. Taxes are low in historical terms as well - the lowest since the early 1950s.

The Kauffman Foundation, which looks at the level of U.S. entrepreneurship, found that in 2010, 340 out of every 100,000 Americans started a business each month. That rate hasn’t changed much in the past few years; it is only slightly higher than in 2007, before the recession. Regarding regulations, Bloomberg News has crunched the numbers and found that the Obama administration has not reviewed or issued significantly more rules than its predecessors.

Or look at competitiveness. The World Bank publishes a report that looks at "Doing Business" across the globe. The U.S. ranks 4th in the world. The World Economic Forum does an annual ranking of overall economic competitiveness. The U.S. ranked fifth. In both these rankings, the countries that score higher are tiny places like Singapore and Finland, with populations often at 5% that of the United States.

And these rankings have not slipped much over the last decade. So where has there been change? Where have we slipped?

The answer is pretty clear. Only five years ago, American infrastructure used to be ranked in the top 10 by the World Economic Forum. Now we're 24th. U.S. air infrastructure has gone from 12th in the world to 31st - roads from eighth to 20th.

The drop in human capital is even greater than the drop in physical capital....(Read on or watch the video through the link below)
