Jobless rate tumbles to near four-year low

The U.S. unemployment rate dropped to a near four-year low of 7.8 percent in September, a potential boost to President Barack Obama's re-election bid.
The Labor Department said on Friday the unemployment rate, a key focus in the race for the White House, dropped by 0.3 percentage point to its lowest point since January 2009 as employers added 114,000 workers to their payrolls.
The drop in the unemployment rate reflected an even bigger surge in new jobs captured by a survey of households and came even as Americans returned to the labor force to resume the hunt for work. The workforce had shrank in the prior two months.
Payrolls for July and August were revised to show 86,000 more jobs created than previous reported, mostly to reflect increases in government employment.
The jobless rate is now where it was when Obama took office in January 2009. Household employment increased 873,000, the most since June 1983, according to the household survey. The bulk of the gains were part-time jobs.
"There is something in these numbers for everyone. The rise in the participation rate shows somewhat of a real improvement in the labor market," said Omer Esiner, chief market analyst at Commonwealth Foreign Exchange in Washington. U.S. stock index futures rose on the report, while prices for Treasury debt tumbled. The dollar rose versus the yen and the euro.
It was the second last report before the November 6 election that pits Obama against repugican Mitt Romney. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Thursday after Wednesday's first presidential debate showed Romney gained ground and is now viewed positively by 51 percent of voters. Obama's favorability rating remained unchanged at 56 percent.
Persistently poor labor market conditions led the Federal Reserve in September to announce a plan to buy $40 billion worth of mortgage-backed securities each month until it sees a sustained turnaround in employment. The central bank, which also pledged to keep overnight lending rates near zero until at least mid-2015, hopes the purchases drive down long-term borrowing costs and spur the recovery.
The Fed's ultra-easy stance has started to free up credit, giving a lift to consumers, economists said. That, in turn, helped lift retail hiring in September.
Temporary help jobs, which are often seen as a harbinger for permanent hiring, fell 2,000 after being almost flat in August.
Manufacturing payrolls fell for a second straight month.
Construction employment rose 5,000, benefiting from the rise in home construction, as demand for housing rises against the backdrop of record low mortgage rates
Government payrolls rose 10,000 after increasing 45,000 in August. Average hourly earnings rose 7 cents last month, which could support spending.

Big Bird to dog Romney at events


Big Big appeared at a Mitt Romney rally in Abingdon, Virginia today.  It’s apparently a mystery who is sponsoring Big Bird (I thought it was the DNC, but apparently that’s not confirmed).  I hope someone is sponsoring him.  Because Big Bird needs to dog Romney and Ryan at every single event they do between now and the election, including the debates.
Big Bird protesting a Romney rally in Virginia today.
And here’s a new video from the DNC about Big Bird:

PBS head unloads on Romney

Save Big Bird, take Lehrer.

That pretty much sums up the mood of the country yesterday, in the day following the first presidential debate.
During that debate, republican Mitt Romney repeatedly rode over the moderator, PBS’ Jim Lehrer, and then proceeded to tell voters that, if given the chance, he’s planned on running over Big Bird too.  Here’s what Romney said:
“I’m sorry Jim, I’m gonna stop the subsidy to PBS,” he told moderator Jim Lehrer, who has worked for PBS since the 1970s. “I like PBS, I love Big Bird, I actually like you too, but I’m going to stop borrowing money from China to pay for things we don’t need.”
Romney claimed his malice towards PBS was motivated by the budget deficit, but in fact Republicans have been trying to kill PBS, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, for nearly two decades – and it’s not about the deficit, it’s about far-right ideology.  As I pointed in my earlier post, repugicans think PBS, and shows like Sesame Street specifically, are indoctrinating American children in liberalism.
That’s why Mitt Romney has joined the Big Bird- bashing brigade.  Not for the budget.  For the far-right of the party.  It’s the same reason Romney has shown a recent interest in Lyme disease.  These positions seem obscure until you dig a little deeper and realize that Mitt Romney is actually, once again, playing to the fringes that have taken over the repugican cabal.
Fortunately, the head of PBS, Paula Kerger, is having none of it.  She went on CNN and blasted Romney.
“With the enormous problems facing our country, the fact that we are the focus is just unbelievable to me,” she said. Later, she called it a “stunning moment.”
PBS also issued a hard-hitting statement about Romney’s outburst:
We are very disappointed that PBS became a political target in the Presidential debate last night. Governor Romney does not understand the value the American people place on public broadcasting and the outstanding return on investment the system delivers to our nation. We think it is important to set the record straight and let the facts speak for themselves.
The federal investment in public broadcasting equals about one one-hundredth of one percent of the federal budget. Elimination of funding would have virtually no impact on the nation’s debt. Yet the loss to the American public would be devastating. PBS went on to note that surveys show Americans love PBS, don’t want to see it cut. She also pointed out that PBS raises six times as much money as it gets via federal funding.
I’ve been arguing for 16 years that Democrats should pick up the Big Bird mantle and slam it down on Republicans’ heads.  Going after PBS is “trying to kill Big Bird,” I told them. My former bosses weren’t interested in the messaging.  Fortunately, America is.
PS Brilliant satire from Alexandra Petri at the Washington Post, in an article titled “Mitt Romney is right about Big Bird.”  A quick excerpt, but go read the whole thing:
Frankly, I have always had problems with Big Bird. I don’t know what he is. He is six years old, according to the show’s count, but I have suspicions that he is in fact a fully grown man in a bird suit.
I am not a muppet hater. But I would be curious if Big Bird is capable of supporting himself without government aid. He sounds like a 47 percenter to me — have you ever seen him pay taxes? Just because you are six years old and a bird does not mean I should have to pay for entitlements like food. Who is paying for the lavish nest that he shares with his teddy bear, Radar? Where are the adults in his life?
When is he going to get a job? He can’t still be six years old. That is not how time works. I am no longer six, and Big Bird was six before I was.

Romney: I lied to top donors, 47% comments “completely wrong”

Last night, Mitt Romney flip-flopped on the 47%.  The comments were “completely wrong,” Romney now says.
Bring out that old Etch-a-Sketch, because Flip Flop Romney is back.  Recall the words of Romney communications director Eric Fehrnstrom back in March:
FEHRNSTROM: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.
First, let’s remind ourselves of exactly what Mitt Romney told a gathering of rich donors:
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.
Romney went on: “[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
Mind you, for the last month – it’s been almost a month – Romney stood by the comments disparaging half the country.  He admitted that they were “inelegantly stated,” but he stood by them.  At length.  From Politico:
Romney pushed back in an impromptu press conference Monday evening saying that the video did not fully capture his comments and that the video did not fully capture his views.
He did not step away from the major point of a government generated economy over a free enterprise-based approach.
“I am talking about a political process of drawing people in my campaign… My campaign is about helping people take more responsibility,” Romney said.
“This is ultimately a question (about) the direction of the country. Do you believe in a government centered society that provides more and more benefits or do you believe instead in a free enterprise society where people are able to pursue their dreams.”
Romney did say that he comments we’re “not elegantly stated.. I am sure I can state it more clearly and effectively than I did in a setting like that.”
He added, “The president’s approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because frankly my discussion about out lowering taxes isn’t as attractive to them and therefore I am not likely to draw them into my campaign as those that are in the middle.”
And rnc chair Reince Priebus stood by the comments as well, telling CNN that Romney was “on message.”
But now, nearly a month later, suddenly Mitt Romney has a life-changing experience and admits that his comments writing off half the country, at length, comments which he defended for a month, were “completely wrong.”  A month later he realizes this.
Here’s Romney’s newest position on the 47%:
So Romney lied to his top donors.  Why?  Why did he lie to them?  Has he lied to other top donors?  Is he lying to us now?
Why didn’t Romney realize his comments were completely wrong a month ago?  Why did he defend them if he knew they were “completely wrong”?  So you mean, Romney lied to the American people for the past month when he said his comments were accurate (albeit inelegant)?
And what happened to cause Romney ton only now realize that his comments are wrong?
I’ll tell you what happened.  Romney’s son Tagg is busy “reinventing” his dad for the 100th time, and one of the things he told poppy is that he has to come clean on the 47% remarks.
This man is incredibly disingenuous.  He will say anything to anyone to get elected President.  He used to claim that he was better on gay rights than Ted Kennedy.  Now he panders to the farthest of the gay-hating far-right, while his wife campaigns at conferences sponsored by officially-designated hate groups.  Ted Kennedy, he ain’t.
But then what is Mitt Romney?  What does he actually believe on anything?   He’s flip-flopped on gay rights.  He flip-flopped on health care reform again and again and again and again and again and again. He’s flipped on immigration a few times, on gay adoption, the auto bailout, on guns, on his own college, on SuperPACs, on Solyndra, on carbon pollution, on stem cells, on abortion, on contraception, on Iraq, on climate change, on taxes, on the recession a lot.
He flip-flopped on catfish.
He even flip-flopped on flip-flopping.
That’s why fellow repugican, fellow mormon, John Huntsman called Romney “a perfectly lubricated weathervane on the important issues of the day.”
That’s a nice way of saying that Mitt Romney is a congenital liar.

Paul Ryan: 60% of US is moochers who aren’t “American”

In a story reminiscent of Mitt Romney’s attack on the 47% of Americans who he says think of themselves as “victims,” Ben Craw and Zach Carter of the Huffington Post report today that Paul Ryan has repeatedly criticized 60% of Americans, who he calls “takers,” for getting more money from the federal government than they put in.  (People who put in more than they take are called “makers” by Ryan.)Not mentioned in the HuffPost story, and buried at the end of their video showing Ryan repeatedly mentioning “takers” and “makers,” is Ryan accusing “takers” – 60% of the country – of not being “American,” not “want[ing] the American dream,” and not “believ[ing] in the American idea.”
This comes on the heels of Mitt Romney’s retraction today of his 47% comments, after a month of defending them.
Here’s Ryan’s standard talking point, per HuffPo:
“Right now about 60 percent of the American people get more benefits in dollar value from the federal government than they pay back in taxes,” Ryan said. “So we’re going to a majority of takers versus makers in America and that will be tough to come back from that. They’ll be dependent on the government for their livelihoods [rather] than themselves.”
HuffPost has video showing appearance after appearance in which Ryan repeatedly criticizes the “60%” of Americans that he says take more than they give to America. So clearly Ryan didn’t mis-speak. This is a core tenet of the man’s beliefs, that 60% of our country is made up of people who aren’t “American”:
Particularly troubling is what Ryan says at the end of the Huffington Post video:
“The good news is, most people in America don’t want to be a ‘taker,’ they want to be American, they want to be a ‘maker’.”
So “takers” aren’t “American.”
In a different speech, Ryan explains that only makers “want the American dream… believe in the American idea.”  So 60% of Americans don’t believe in the American dream, and don’t believe in the American idea, according to the Republican vice presidential candidate.
The Romney/Ryan campaign has yet to explain how they plan on winning the election with only 40% of the vote.

Father and son accused of mimicking limp of girl with cerebral palsy

Hope Holcomb, 10, is like any other young girl. She loves to play and to be outside. She also doesn’t let cerebral palsy slow her down. But she says she has been afraid to leave her home in East Sparta, which is South of Canton in Stark County, Ohio, because she says she is being bullied by her 9-year-old next door neighbor and his father.

Hope’s grandmother shot video last week at the bus stop. In it you can see a boy and his father, William Bailey, walking slowly with a limp. “It started last year we had trouble on the bus, she was miserable she didn’t want to ride the bus, cried every morning,” said Tricia Knight, Hope’s mother. ”He treats her like crap, and most recently the dad got involved.”

After watching the video, Hope’s parents, Tricia and Mike, felt they needed to bring the bullying situation to the public’s attention. “It makes me sick too, to think that a grown man would tease a 10-year-old disabled girl that has never done a thing to any of them for no reason, and now she doesn’t want to get on the bus to go to school,” said Mike Knight. The dad in the video, William Bailey, wouldn’t talk, but his wife Vickie says this is a fight between two families and they call each other names.

“He did get out of the car, you’ve seen the video I am sure, my kid was walking like, but no offence to Hope so why they are taking it that way, I have no idea,” Vickie Bailey said. Both families have filed complaints with the prosecutor’s office. No criminal charges have been filed. The prosecutor says she will review all the reports and meet with the families next week to determine what if any charges should be filed.

Japanese trio 'barbecued and curried' victim

Three men who allegedly barbecued and curried the remains of their victim are being held by authorities in Japan, police said on Thursday. The trio are suspected of using a hammer to dismember Kazuyuki Kobayashi, before grilling parts of his body and getting rid of the remains in mountains in rural Japan, a police spokesman said.

Photos from here.

Two of the men had confessed to stabbing Kobayashi three years ago and stewing some of his flesh in a curry, in an effort to hide the smell. Tasuku Shimaoka, 34, Keita Yoshida, 30, and Koji Kawamura, 40, were arrested last week on charges of dismembering Kobayashi, who went missing in 2009, the police spokesman said.

It is common for Japanese police to arrest suspects on lesser charges initially in order to extend the time they are allowed to keep them in custody. Kobayashi's body had been stored in a warehouse refrigerator in Tokyo before being taken to Niigata in the country's north. "The suspects conspired between July and August of 2011 and used a hammer-like object to destroy (Kobayashi's body). They then cooked the flesh on a barbecue grill," the spokesman said.

"They damaged and dumped the remains in mountains," he said, without elaborating further. Reports say Shimaoka owed money to Kobayashi, adding that police were preparing to open a murder investigation. Yoshida has admitted all charges against him, Kawamura has confessed to some, while Shimaoka is maintaining his innocence, the police spokesman said.

Shoplifting woman with goatee hunted

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the community’s assistance in identifying two females wanted for shoplifting. According to an incident report, on September 26 officers responded to Kmart located on Saint Andrews Road, Columbia, South Carolina, in reference to a shoplifting.

Upon arrival, deputies met with a Kmart employee who advised officers that two black females stole merchandise from the store, the report stated. According to the employee, she observed a woman with dreadlocks wearing glasses; a white t-shirt, tan shorts and a goatee, (which is spelled “gotee” in the incident report), carrying four black and garnet USC leather jackets.

The employee added that she also saw a second female with shoulder length black hair and a white t-shirt carrying four blue and grey Dallas Cowboys leather jackets and ten red USC baseball caps. Deputies say when the employee asked the ladies if she could help them check out, the females quickly exited the store without rendering payment. A second employee who was waiting outside the store for a ride, noticed the women fleeing the scene.

Deputies say one of the suspects pulled up her shirt and revealed a handgun to the worker. According to the first employee, the women never presented the weapon inside the store, but stated that if anyone came after them, they would get shot. Deputies say the two women drove off in a white Ford. The leather jackets were valued at $65 each and the hats $13. Deputies describe the female with dreadlocks as being between 25-30 years old, 6’0 and 140lbs. The second female is described as being between 30-35 years old, 5’11 and 150lbs.
Business was brisk inside New Orleans Parish magistrate court on Monday afternoon as criminal defendants filled up the back rows while police sat waiting to testify. That's when a joint fell out of attorney Jason Cantrell 's pocket and onto the floor in front of NOPD officers.

Cantrell, 43, is an assistant city attorney and son of Magistrate Commissioner Harry Cantrell. He lost in a race for a juvenile court judgeship in 2009. Cantrell was cited and let go under a city policy for low-level marijuana cases, police said. An officer said Cantrell was a first-time offender. He was issued a summons for simple possession of marijuana, said Officer Garry Flot, an NOPD spokesman.

Flot said Cantrell was talking to an officer when the joint flew. Sources painted a comical picture of the incident, saying a pair of police officers glanced at the joint on the ground, then at each other before making arguably the easiest collar in the annals of policework. Officers were seen chuckling as their colleagues led Cantrell out of the courtroom at about 4:15 p.m. to write him up.

Cantrell was not working as a city attorney when he lost the joint, said Ryan Berni, a spokesman for Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office. He was suspended without pay pending an investigation, Berni said. Cantrell has practiced civil and criminal law in New Orleans for 17 years, including six as a public defender in Juvenile Court. His wife, LaToya Cantrell, is a candidate for the District B seat on the City Council.

City Hall evacuated after man named 'Kaboom' forgot walking stick

Akron City Hall in Ohio was evacuated after a strange pipe was found on the third floor. Workers feared it could be a bomb. They were very wrong. Turns out the duct taped walking stick was accidentally left by a man with the last name of Kaboom.

The stick is a metal shower curtain rod with duct tape on each side. It also has the words "this is not a weapon" and "Kaboom" written on it. City workers were evacuated, but Akron police quickly found the 66-year-old who goes by the names "Natural Hunka Kaboom" or James Kaboom.

Kaboom said he mistakenly left his walking stick at city hall and planned to pick it up next week. His neighbors call the whole thing very odd, but agreed city hall couldn't take any chances. "If you've got a pipe that says Kaboom on it, I'd be nervous too," one neighbor said.

Akron police Lt. Rick Edwards said there won't be any charges at this point. "Our officers did talk to him. They said it was a walking stick. Didn't appear there was any intent to create a panic or any hysteria at the city hall."

What Are All Those Old Boys' Clubs Hiding?

Decoding Secret Societies
Ever wanted to know what the Freemasons do or what all their weird symbols mean? Why Odd Fellows keep real human skeletons? Or why people freak out about the supposed Illuminati? Their members use secret handshakes and coded language. In temples, they don ancient regalia, helmets, or masks.

Thanks to their veils of secrecy and archaic symbols like the All-Seeing Eye, outsiders find fraternal orders endlessly fascinating. But what does it all mean?

The Nez Perce Historical Park In Spalding, Idaho

The Nez Perce are Native American people who live in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. An anthropological theory says they descended from the Old Cordilleran Culture, which moved south from the Rocky Mountains and west in Nez Perce lands. The Nez Perce nation currently governs and inhabits a reservation in Idaho.

Nez Perce is French for 'Pierced Nose' - a name mistakenly bestowed upon them by French fur traders. Nose-piercing has in fact never been a part of Nez Perce culture, but for some reason the name stuck. The tribe refers to itself as the Nimíipuu, which means 'The People.'

A Crow named Walter adopts family

It's fair to say that in the animal kingdom, crows invariably get a bad rap. The noisy black birds are often viewed as a nuisance, or worse, as some kind of mysterious bad omen. But one crow in Canada is changing all that. 'Walter' is building quite a name for himself in his Ottawa neighborhood as a loyal and trusted family pet. Back in the spring, the Renaud family found Walter, injured in a ditch and at death's door.

The family collectively nursed Walter back to good health, feeding him and attending to his injuries. And when it was at last time to set Walter free, they discovered that he preferred to stay right where he was, with the Renauds. "As I walked the kids to school," Elissa Renaud recalls, "He trotted along right behind us. And I realized that he thinks he's one of us and he's going to walk the kids to school and look out for them, and he's here to stay!"

The Renauds' daughter Livia confesses that Walter is among her closest confidantes. "If I'm feeling sad I know I can tell him," Livia says, "because I know he won't tell anyone else, or secrets my friends have told me." Livia's brother Zachary says Walter has truly found a home - in their home. "He's like another child in our family," Zach says. From treetop and rooftop perches above them, Walter keeps a close watch on the Renaud children.

As soon as either Livia or Zachary come out of class after school, Walter is quick to swoop down and join them. Animal experts say crows are actually among the most intelligent animal species, because they're one of the few species able to distinguish humans apart just by their facial features. And Walter knows his family as soon as he sees them. The Renauds realize that one day Walter may take off to find a mate, and on that day they'll wish him well. But for now, he's simply a loyal and loved member of the family.

The Sunflower Seastar Has Weird Way Of Eating

The sunflower seastar (Pycnopodia helianthoides) is a large sea star found in the northeast Pacific. It is the largest sea star in the world, with a maximum armspan of 3.3 ft. A sunflower seastar can have up to 26 arms and 15,000 tube feet, which it can use to pry open a clam. The sunflower seastar then pushes its stomach out of its mouth and into the clam, digesting the hapless bivalve in its own shell.

Borneo Bio-Hunt Turns Up Treasures

A Dutch-Malaysian expedition to the remote 'Heart of Borneo' has turned up more than 160 species previously unknown to science - and perhaps more importantly, enough DNA samples to figure out how more than 1,400 species in one of the world's hottest hot spots for biodiversity are related.
