"The problem is fairly simple: there's a tiny vulnerability -- a simple missing bounds check -- in the code that handles TLS 'heartbeat' messages. By abusing this mechanism, an attacker can request that a running TLS server hand over a relatively large slice (up to 64KB) of its private memory space. Since this is the same memory space where OpenSSL also stores the server's private key material, an attacker can potentially obtain (a) long-term server private keys, (b) TLS session keys, (c) confidential data like passwords, (d) session ticket keys."
A downright nasty little bug.  Is your server vulnerable?

A minor error there - the unemployed percentage includes some who can live on savings and whatnot, so are still pulling their weight.  And the percentages for hours worked is of total workers, rather than of total including unemployed, so the percentage should be a bit lower.
