    The remains of a burnt beetle found in a grain of wheat about 3,500 years old provided a group of researchers from Bar-Ilan University with a key to a question the Bible left without a definite answer: How did Joseph the Dreamer, who became the viceroy to the king of Egypt, succeed in preserving the grain during the seven lean years and prevent Egypt's population from starving? According to the description in the book of Genesis, during the seven years of plenty in Egypt, Joseph had all the wheat collected in silos. "And he gathered up all the food of...
  • New Analysis Details Enormous Economic Consequences as Earners Flee Blue States for Red

    A new analysis of IRS data shows the financial consequences of gaining or losing population can be either extremely rewarding or devastating to individual states. In 2020, blue states repelled the highest earners while red states attracted them, resulting in massive economic losses and gains. Wirepoints, an Illinois-based research organization, took a look at the latest migration data released by the IRS and drew some conclusions that should leave Democrat-run states in a cold sweat, wondering how they’ll ever be able to maintain their profligacy. In the competition for America’s best and brightest residents, the most populous blue states are...

    New York City struggles with a sharp rise in violent crime as the new mayor fails to make the metro areas safer. Public safety is worsening and has likely resulted in a continued exodus of residents. NYPost reports that 21,546 New Yorkers left the state for Florida during the first four months of this year, a 12% rise over the same period last year. The exodus of New Yorkers first began before COVID-19 because of high taxes, then accelerated during the pandemic as the city went into lockdown. Now people are leaving in droves as the metro area descends into...

    Vladimir putin, so intent on bringing Ukraine under his control, is neglecting the problems facing Russians at home. A survey conducted between February 17th and 21st—that is, in the week before Mr Putin’s invasion—by the Levada Centre, an independent Russian pollster, found that 43% of Russians between the ages of 18 and 24 wanted to leave the country for good. And 44% of those who hoped to emigrate cited the “economic situation” as their motivation. That situation is likely to get a lot worse. Western sanctions have created an economic storm: rising inflation, a crashing currency, and imports that are...

    Fears that Vladimir Putin could soon impose martial law in Russia are pushing thousands to try to flee their country ahead of this weekend, Axios is reporting. The exodus comes amid rumors Russia will also close its borders and order a tougher crackdown on domestic protests. The news outlet said widespread suffering is arriving at Russia's own doorstep. The Associated Press reported that dozens of foreign and international companies have pulled their business out of Russia. Major car brands have stopped exports; Boeing and Airbus suspended supply of aircraft parts and service to Russian airlines; and top Hollywood studios halted...

    Jeff Gundlach is the latest in a long line of asset managers that are moving operations to Florida.Gundlach's DoubleLine Capital LP has moved its principal office, according to a report from Bloomberg this week. Formerly located in Glendale, California, the move tp Tampa comes after Gundlach has publicly complained about quality of life and taxes in California. Gundlach isn't moving to Tampa, however. Regulatory filings this past week noted that “Key decisions impacting the policies and strategy of DoubleLine Capital” and board meetings will now all be made in Florida.Taxes and quality of life in California have been gripes of...

    In 2010, as a 5th grader at Sellers Elementary in Glendora, California, part of the curriculum was learning the 50 states and their capitals. As we learned them, I felt that I could remember better if I learned information about each state. I had no clue what I was in for.During my research, my eyes were opened to how different life, politics, economics, and culture were in various states. As I dug more, my desire to leave the Golden State was planted and began to grow. Now 12 years later, due to a better financial situation, I am finally leaving.To...

    Earlier this year, researchers at Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky witnessed a cyberespionage campaign targeting Microsoft Windows PCs at government and telecom entities in China and Pakistan. They began in June 2020 and continued through to April 2021. What piqued the researchers’ interest was the hacking software used by the digital spies, whom Kaspersky had dubbed Bitter APT, a pseudonym for an unspecified government agency. Aspects of the code looked like some the Moscow antivirus provider had previously seen and attributed to a company it gave the cryptonym “Moses.” Moses, said Kaspersky, was a mysterious provider of hacking tech known as...

    Facebook is going the way of California. It's losing people.The news for the social media behemoth was grim.According to CNBC:Facebook earnings came in below expectations for the fourth quarter, and the company said numerous challenges are ahead in the first quarter.Inflation, supply chain disruptions at advertisers and users shifting to products that "monetize at lower rates" are among the key issues the company faces.Revenue in the first quarter will be between $27 billion and $29 billion, while analysts were looking for that number to top $30 billion.Facebook shares tumbled more than 20% in extended trading on Wednesday after the company...

    Specifically, in today's episode we note that people from San Francisco are flocking to Montana, which has seen a 140% increase from Fog City when comparing total moves from 2018-2019 and 2020-2021, according to the San Francisco Chronicle."I have a vacation rental [in Bozeman]," said Bozeman real estate broker Cancis Dorsch, who's spent years selling vacation homes to Bay Area residents and says that demand from the Bay Area has 'exploded.'"It became slam-booked for the entire summer. Buyers were making phone calls, buyers were buying properties, sight unseen, to get out of the Bay Area. It really happened in the...

    Lots of people are fleeing California now. More left than came in last year, even with the illegal alien inflow.We have an impression as to who they generally are — Republicans, productive middle-class people, companies looking for greener pastures.The Hollywood crowd is fleeing, too.James Freeman of the Wall Street Journal (subscription) has an interesting piece describing how Hollywood characters who are fleeing and why they are doing it:Last year brought an entertaining series of dispatches in which departing residents and their media interlocutors avoided discussing the monumental and expensive failures of so-called progressive governance. But now it seems even in...
  • That city you love so much doesn't exist anymore: Baltimore? Chicago? San Francisco? Forget it. Stop looking back and think about how to move forward.

    The place where you want to live doesn't exist anymore. There is no pathway back to the past. The future happens moving forward. These thoughts became clear recently when discussing Chicago with a friend who had moved there years ago. Some in San Francisco, New York, and other large metropolitan areas, I would assume, now also feel the same. The cities of their desire or memory no longer exist. The big-city culture, history, entertainment, eateries, mass transit, and general hustle and bustle were the allure. Amenities, job access, decreasing crime rates, overtaking the lower-income areas to create more affordable places...

    Across the country, Americans are fleeing “blue” cities and states led by progressive Democrats and moving to “red” communities governed by Republicans. Americans are voting with their feet in substantial numbers. This trend has been apparent for years, but it is now accelerating. In 2021, the state with the biggest loss of population was New York, which suffered a decline of 319,020 people. After the disgraced former Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo was forced to resign for his inappropriate behavior toward multiple women, his successor, Kathy Hochul, has continued his progressive policies with the same disastrous results in New York. Democrat...

    The Federalist ^ | 01/03/2022 | Joy Pullmann
    Rather than seeking to be places of excellence, often red states simply congratulate themselves that they ‘Aren’t Illinois or California.’New census figures show the United States added the fewest citizens in its entire history in 2021, with population growth at just 0.1 percent. The data also showed a continued exodus of Americans from Democrat-run states to Republican-run states, with New York, California, and Illinois losing the most residents and Texas, Florida, and Arizona gaining the most, respectively.The Wall Street Journal posted graphics illustrating these trends on a recent front page, then editorialized about the trend, pointing out the correlation between...

    Owning a home had never been something Kristopher Esqueda even thought about. He was a successful restaurateur in San Francisco, helping to open many popular restaurants such as Saison and Sons and Daughters, and every month he turned in a $3,500 rent check for a two-bedroom apartment in the Tenderloin. One day after visiting a friend in Nashville who had moved there from the Bay Area, Esqueda left his apartment, stepping over hypodermic needles and feces on his way to work and started to wonder whether his time in the city was up.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Thursday that a staff exodus from Vice President Kamala Harris’ press office was “natural” and “a very positive thing” — and at one point said that top executive branch staffers may also leave because they just want “to sleep more.” Psaki denied that there’s a house-cleaning underway amid abysmal polling for Harris and mass disgruntlement among her staff after reports on the latest in a trio of high-profile staff departures. “Working in the first year of a White House is exciting and rewarding but it’s also grueling and exhausting,” Psaki said.

    I ran into an old California buddy online Sunday. He asked me why I moved to Texas.We didn't have a lot of time, so I gave him the shortest explanation I could: "It's not California."For the ten or so friends, all former Californians, who have moved near us in Texas in the last year or so, no further explanation is needed. In Texas, 80 looters don't pull their cars up to the swankiest department stores and loot the place in broad daylight with impunity.San Francisco is different, and has been for a long time, nearly as long as it has...
