  • Gig Economy Company Launches Uber, But for Evicting People

    "SINCE COVID-19 MANY AMERICANS FELL BEHIND IN ALL ASPECTS," reads the website copy. The button below this statement is not for a GoFundMe, or a petition for calling for rent relief. Instead, it is the following call to action, from a company called Civvl: "Be hired as eviction crew." During a time of great economic and general hardship, Civvl aims to be, essentially, Uber, but for evicting people. Seizing on a pandemic-driven nosedive in employment and huge uptick in number-of-people-who-can't-pay-their-rent, Civvl aims to make it easy for landlords to hire process servers and eviction agents as gig workers.
  • States Want Coronavirus Aid to Pay for Years of Fiscal Mismanagement, Not Coronavirus Fight

    05/29/2020 3:51:26 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | May 29, 2020 | Kay Coles James
    At a time when huge spending bills marked “coronavirus relief” are easily passing Congress with little scrutiny, poorly run states are asking unscrupulous members of Congress to slip in taxpayer bailouts to rescue them from years of their own fiscal mismanagement. In response, the House of Representatives recently passed a coronavirus relief bill that includes a half trillion dollars (trillion with a “t”) in unrestricted funds to bail out state governments for years of reckless expenditures entirely unrelated to the pandemic. I have the same reaction to these proposals that I had when I worked in government and people were...

    Joe Biden's brother is a scofflaw who is defying paying almost $1 million in compensation to the family of a young single father killed in a horrific car crash more than 20 years ago, can reveal. Frank Biden has failed to pay a dime to the family of Michael Albano despite having defaulted on a lawsuit filed against him for the death, our investigation uncovered. And even though Albano's orphaned daughters pleaded more than a decade ago with Joe – then a senator - for help recovering the money from his brother it was to no avail, telling them...

    How else would one describe the bunch of 2020 Democratic Presidential except for: Deadbeats-R-US. Unlike President Trump, these folks have relied on the government to give them money for their do-nothing jobs they have held. I hope this name sticks. Maybe it will make it to 'talk radio' or other media outlets other than our 'controlled media'.
  • Why the Gap Between White Men and Black Women Paying Off Student Loans Is So Huge

    The experience of repaying student loans is unpleasant for millions of graduates, but for some borrowers, paying off student debt is an almost insurmountable challenge. Twelve years after entering college, white men have paid off 44% of their student-loan balance on average, according to an analysis released Thursday by Demos, a left-leaning think tank. For white women, that share drops to 28%. For black borrowers, the picture is even bleaker. Black women see their loan balances actually grow 13% on average, 12 years after leaving school, while black men see their balances grow 11%. The age at which students enter...

    Cannabis businesses owe millions in overdue taxes to the Oregon Department of Revenue. The latest numbers show 176 businesses owe a total of $15.7 million. . . . The Oregon Department of Revenue says the top 10 businesses with outstanding balances owe more than $600,000 each.The problem is getting worse. Since July the total owed to the state has gone up by $3 million. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission says it does not have the ability to immediately pull licenses like its counterparts in Washington and Colorado. That's because the tax money is collected by the Department of Revenue and...

    With two of out every five member states of the United Nations not yet having paid their dues for 2018, the world body says it has never been so far behind in receiving contributions by this time of the year, and officials are looking for belt-tightening options. Among the 81 countries yet to pay, by far the biggest amount due is the United States’ contribution of $591.3 million, which comprises 22 percent of the total regular budget for 2018. Next up are Brazil ($102.7 million, or 3.8 percent of the budget), Saudi Arabia ($30.8 million, 1.14 percent) and Argentina ($23.9...

    When we checked in with Newsweek last week, the magazine had just published a news article critical of the magazine’s owners. That article only saw the light of day after a number of reporters and editors threatened to quit if it were spiked. It came after two top editors were fired and a raid based on an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney. Today, the Daily Beast reports the struggling magazine is unable to pay its rent and may face eviction. Guardian Life Insurance, the sub-landlord for the company’s downtown Manhattan office, informed International Business Times Inc. in late November...

    Just as the Golden State Warriors set out to defend their NBA title, a legal defense is ramping up over how much the team will owe for improvements made to Oracle Arena once the franchise makes its planned move to San Francisco. Lawyers for the Warriors, in an Oct. 6 letter to the American Arbitration Association, argue that the team has no obligation to pay any remaining debt once it leaves Oakland. The arena’s operator, the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority (OACCA), contends the team must pay all the remaining debt — estimated to be about $40 million — regardless of...

    The police finally found former Yankees slugger Danny Tartabull — thanks to Danny Tartabull. Tartabull, 54, got himself arrested in Agoura, Calif., on Monday evening in connection with $275,000 of unpaid child support dating back to a 2011 conviction. According to TMZ Sports, Tartabull called the police to report his car had been broken into. When the cops ran Tartabull’s name through the system, they saw an active warrant and arrested him on the spot. Six years ago, Tartabull entered a plea of no contest, but did not comply with probation and was ordered to surrender and serve 180 days...

    Bernie Sanders paid same department upfront Multiple police departments in Iowa say they still have not been reimbursed for services provided to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to local The Des Moines Police Department and the Marshalltown Police Department both say they are owed money from the Clinton campaign. In Des Moines, the campaign still hasn’t paid for $1,800 worth of services provided last October for a Katy Perry concert. The campaign told that it will pay the bill as soon as it receives an invoice, but the Des Moines Police Department provided a copy of the invoice...

    The Clinton campaign says as soon as they receive an invoice, they'll pay the Des Moines Police Department for the services they provided at the Katy Perry concert last October. City Hall provided us a copy of the invoice that has already been sent. The invoice is dated November 19, 2015. The bill is nearly $1,800. The Marshalltown Police Department is dealing with the same problem. "We have requested reimbursement from the Clinton campaign. We haven`t received that payment yet," said Marshalltown Police Chief Michael Tupper. . . "In my 23 year career, the Trump campaign actually paying this large...

    Believe it or not, the US Marshals Service in Houston is arresting people for not paying their outstanding federal student loans. Paul Aker says he was arrested at his home last week for a $1500 federal student loan he received in 1987. He says seven deputy US Marshals showed up at his home with guns and took him to federal court where he had to sign a payment plan for the 29-year-old school loan.

    BRUSSELS/ATHENS (Reuters) - Talks on breaking a deadlock between Greece and its international creditors broke up in failure on Sunday, with European leaders venting their frustration as Athens stumbled closer toward a debt default that threatens its future in the euro. With Athens insisting it would never give in to demands from the EU and IMF for pension and wage cuts, the European Commission declared that the negotiations in Brussels, also involving the European Central Bank, had not succeeded.

    There are some valid points raised in Lee Siegel's 1100 word rant against college loans (if not so much against college education). There are some bad ones. But two things are clear: the words "personal" and/or "responsibility" were used precisely zero times, and the op-ed writer, who described himself as "the author of five books who is writing a memoir about money", is hardly a glowing advertisement for an education attained (funded with either debt or equity) at one of the Ivy League's "best", Columbia University.That, or the return on money after spending nearly a decade in university and...

    Exit polls suggest a historic victory for the anti-austerity Syriza party in Greece's closely fought general election. One poll suggested Syriza took 35.5% of the votes, and the other suggested it took 39.5%, well ahead of ruling New Democracy party on 23%-27%. It is unclear whether Syriza has enough votes to govern the country alone. Syriza's Alexis Tsipras has pledged to renegotiate Greece's debt arrangement with international creditors....
