This figure is expected to grow in the coming months as the war continues.President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, said: “Ukraine is fighting for democracy and our common values. The EU cannot match the sacrifice Ukraine is enduring but we are mobilising all our instruments to address the most immediate needs, including for housing for internally...

    The post-COVID recovery will be change not restoration. We’ll be forced to rebuild where we are.Years ago, I moved from a somewhat larger small town (pop. 30,000) in upstate New York to a smaller small town (pop. 2,500) 15 miles east in order to establish a little homestead with gardens, fruit trees, and chickens. I found this three-acre property literally on the edge of town, a five-minute walk to the center of Main Street. If you’ve been following this column on urban design the past year, you know I’ve said we’re entering an era of stark economic contraction that will...

    The fact that our nation’s unemployment rate is approaching the low rate of 3.5% that was reached just prior to the pandemic should be a cause for celebration. But for a variety of reasons, the official unemployment number is misleading.The employment situation is not as rosy as it may seem. There is a wide disparity among the states that can be explained by how much economic freedom they allow, including how severely each state shut down its economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Consider that the U.S. remains 1.6 million jobs short of our February 2020 high, just before the pandemic...
  • It’s Not The 1970s, It’s Worse: This Is The Strongest Recovery In Commodity Prices On Record

    02/02/2022 8:37:40 PM PST · by blam · 14 replies
    As first discussed last June in “Will ESG Trigger Energy Hyperinflation” and again today “Woke Capital Won’t Save the Planet – But It Will Crash the Economy“, the “green”/ESG shift in politician thinking has unleashed an epic surge in commodity prices, which are propelling inflation higher and will likely force central banks to keep tightening until they trigger a recession and/or a market crash (probably both). Unfortunately, as Deutsche Bank’s Jim Reid writes in his chart of the day, given the start seen in 2022, there is no simply solution to what has been a broad-based social shift toward environmental...
  • The 4 American States That Recovered All Jobs Lost From COVID Have Something in Common

    In 2020, our nation’s economy was booming. Then everything came to halt when COVID came to us from China. The country went into lockdown in an effort to “slow the spread,” sending unemployment levels skyrocketing to historic highs. But thanks to President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, the federal government authorized three vaccines in record time and the lockdowns ended. Yet a year later, our nation has yet to recover the jobs it lost, as incentives to remain unemployed predictably kept people from going back to work. But four states have managed to see a full recovery of the jobs lost...

    Public-health messaging from the beginning of this pandemic has had very little to say about immunity acquired following infection. But for most people, it is a real and pressing concern, and not only because of the vaccine mandates that have little or no regard for it. People want to know whether once recovered they can be confident of not getting it again.Must everyone live in fear forever or is there a basis for the recovered to live with confidence?We have looked at the published evidence and can conclude based on the existing body of evidence, that reinfections are very rare,...

    And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us. Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye. And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered, I will go. So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood. But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell...

    President Biden on Wednesday touted the number of unemployment insurance claims, stating that the number represents one of the strongest jobs recoveries ever. “Today, we received further evidence that our jobs recovery is one of the strongest ever. The average number of Americans filing for unemployment over the last four weeks is now at its lowest level since 1969,” Biden said in a statement. The four-week moving average for claims fell by 16,000 to 203,750, the lowest level since Nov. 15, 1969. New applications for jobless aide rose slightly last week, totaling 206,000, an increase of 18,000 from the previous...

    New York City is already struggling to regain the jobs it lost amid the COVID-19 pandemic — but fears are now mounting that Gov. Kathy Hochul’s new mask mandate could slow the Big Apple’s recovery even more. The city’s current unemployment rate of 9.4 percent is more than double the national average of 4.2 percent, new state and federal data shows. While the US added nearly 6 million jobs in the last year, the latest state data shows the Big Apple’s economic recovery lagged considerably with just 174,000 jobs regained in the 12 months through October. The absence of visitors...

"What I will say is people can expect the president to continue to say, today, month to month, is that what we’re seeing are good trends, that we are continuing to put people back to work, that we are continuing to see participation in the workforce, that we are continuing to see the unemployment rate go down, but...

    An elderly COVID-19 patient has recovered after a court order allowed him to be treated with ivermectin, despite objections from the hospital in which he was staying, according to the family’s attorney.After an Illinois hospital insisted on administering expensive remdesivir to the patient and the treatment failed, his life was saved after a court ordered that an outside medical doctor be allowed to use the inexpensive ivermectin to treat him, over the hospital’s strenuous objections.Ivermectin tablets have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat humans with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Monday warned senators that failing to reach a deal on raising the debt limit could "eviscerate" the U.S. economy recovery. Yellen gave this message while addressing the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. She has issued similar notices in the time since the Senate reached a short-term debt hike to last until Dec. 15. Speaking to the committee, Yellen noted November job numbers that showed around 531,000 were added in the past month and stated, "Our economic recovery is on track."

    At least eight people are dead after a crowd surge during the sold-out Astroworld music festival in Houston on Friday, the city's fire chief said. Seventeen people were transported to the hospital after the crush, and 11 who were taken by ambulance were in cardiac arrest, Houston officials said. In all, more than 300 people were treated throughout the event Friday at an on-site field hospital. Around 9:15 p.m. local time (10:15 p.m. ET) "the crowd began to compress toward the front of the stage," Fire Chief Samuel Peña said at a news conference early Saturday. "That caused some panic,...

    Economic growth slowed sharply between July and September as the emergence of the delta variant derailed the recovery from the coronavirus recession, according to data released Thursday by the Commerce Department. U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annualized rate of 2 percent in the third quarter, according to the Census Bureau’s first estimate. The economy grew at a 6.7 percent yearly pace in the second quarter of 2021, marking a sharp slowdown as the delta surge began. “The increase in third quarter GDP reflected the continued economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. A resurgence of COVID-19 cases resulted...

    Florida has recovered more than 960,000 of the around 1.3 million jobs that were lost at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, according to state officials.The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) said in a recent statement that the state has recovered 964,400 jobs of those lost when the pandemic struck last spring, which threw the economy into a tailspin and led to a sharp rise in unemployment.The Sunshine State economy now remains just over 315,000 jobs short of pre-pandemic levels, said Jerry Parrish, chief economist at the Florida Chamber of Commerce.“We still have a few to go to get...

    LA CROSSE, Wis. (CNS) — Cardinal Raymond L.

Father Paul N. Check, executive director of the shrine in Cardinal Burke’s home diocese, relayed an announcement about the cardinal from his family on the cardinal’s official Twitter account @cardinalrlburke and on the shrine website. “Praised be Jesus Christ!” the priest said....

    Job openings in the United States surged to a record high of more than 10 million in June, while hiring lagged behind that figure by over 3 million, painting a picture of an economic recovery held back by a labor shortage as businesses struggle to find workers.The Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS), released Aug. 9, showed that the number of job vacancies jumped by 590,000 to 10.1 million on the last day of June, led by gains in professional and business services, retail trade, and accommodation and food services.“This is by far the record amount of...

    New York (CNN Business)The planned grand reopening of offices across America is in serious doubt because of the Delta variant. In the past 24 hours, a slew of major companies have told employees they will no longer be expected back at their desks in September. Notably, that list includes BlackRock (BLK), Wells Fargo (CBEAX) and other Wall Street firms that had been eager to turn the page on the era of virtual work. The shift by these business leaders makes perfect sense. Many workers are nervous about returning to crowded offices and subway stations at a time when Covid-19 cases...

    Am looking for experiences from Freepers that have had covid-19. I have put this up one other time, Freepers are not here all of the time and browsing habits can vary. If you have already answered please disregard this post. I will publish the results from both polls, removing the top 10% and the bottom 10%. I had it with my wife and 5 kids in February. Thank you for your time and be blessed! Founded PS: I should probably do one on vaccines and reactions as well, in time.
