  • A young mother leaves her newborn next to a tree; stray dogs eat the baby.
  • What does the net neutrality vote mean for consumers?
  • Many Americans are either unemployed or underemployed, according to recent numbers.
  • “Classifying the consumer broadband service as a public utility under Title II of the 1934 Communications Act would help control what consumers are charged and their access to Internet service, which would be deemed something critical to society.

    In everyday terms, think of it this way: There won’t be any uneven service, so everyone can stream their Netflix queue more or less at the same speeds. Supporters of net neutrality have also said that without regulation, a greater socio-economic digital divide could develop, creating a class of information ‘haves’ and ‘have nots.'”
            ― Alyssa Newcomb (ABC)

    “A study published this month in the Journal of Applied Psychology examined a sample of 6,769 German adults — 3,733 men and 3,036 women — who took the same personality test twice in a four-year window. During the experiment, 251 subjects were unemployed for less than a year; 210 faced joblessness for one to four years.

    The authors focused on five traits: conscientiousness, neuroticism, agreeableness, extraversion and openness. Dispositions of perpetually job-hunting people transformed considerably — and dismally — compared with their steadily working counterparts.”
             ― Danielle Paquette (The Washington Post)

    “The labor market remains much weaker than unemployment rate alone suggests. Tens of millions of Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have been encouraged to stop working because of big government policies and low wages. The urgency for getting Americans back to work, working the hours they desire, working in good-paying jobs, and keeping more of what they earn should be as high as it’s ever been.”
             ― Abby McCloskey (Forbes)
