Can you summarize this article?

Question by Abby R: Can you summarize this article?
People say that economics is complicated. But it sure looks simple to me. After all, what’s so complicated about a sector that can be represented in a single arrow? Up for good, down for bad. And if that weren’t easy enough, we’ve got green for good, and red for bad. It’s child’s play. It even looks like a toy I played with as a child. The green arrow made a cow moo, as I remember.
Looks, however, can be deceiving. And so it is with the ubiquitous stock ticker arrow that increasingly serves as a stand-in for broad economic data. More and more, the arrow is all that’s discussed — did stocks rise or did they fall? — as if the movement of the market were synonymous with the fortunes of the economy.

This approach is perhaps best demonstrated by CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow, who routinely writes and says things like, “The stock market actually rose in August, and opened higher in the first day of September trading earlier this morning. If stocks are optimistic, then so am I.”

But Wall Street is not Main Street. Its fluctuations may demonstrate economic health and distress, but they may not. The stock market can go up for a variety of reasons. It can be reacting to evidence of rapid, broadly shared economic growth — or the prospect of such growth — and in those cases, it should elicit a cheer from us all. But it also can be reacting to higher corporate profits that come not from increased productivity or growth but directly out of wages, benefits, higher prices or a variety of cost-saving, corner-cutting measures that don’t make the median American’s life any better.

Sometimes, the market is just reacting to shortsighted business practices that supercharge earnings, but only temporarily — as in the case of the housing boom. Or it can go up because of simple irrational exuberance that is reversed with the next morning’s trading — or the next year’s crash. The market’s fluctuations may not say much about the economy, they may not be as simplistically positive or negative as they seem at first glance, and they may not signal durable trends. They must be treated with care.

The media, however, don’t have a whole lot of time to treat them with care. In an age of 24-hour financial channels and daily business broadsheets, the allure of an easily comprehensible number that comes out every few seconds and can serve as the subject for further commentary is hugely seductive. Increasingly, the stock tickers serve the same purpose in economic reporting that poll numbers serve for political scribes: They provide constant, reportable data that can be used to draw broad conclusions about the subject as a whole — but at a cost of accuracy, random fluctuations and significant separation from the issue at hand.

Just as polls are used because the more significant data (such as vote totals) only come out sporadically, so too is the stock ticker helpful to fill time between the monthly job reports, quarterly growth numbers and yearly census data. But polls at least pretend to reflect the relevant metric: election results. The stock market, however, lays claim to no such relevance. If the jagged line tumbles down, it does not mean the average American’s income has fallen as well. If the line shoots up, it does not mean child poverty has abated.

Indeed, in an era of inequality like the one we’re going through now, in which the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities says the top 1 percent control an astounding 19 percent of the nation’s income, the market is less attached to the fortunes of ordinary Americans than ever. In 2004, the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans owned 36.9 percent of all stock. The wealthiest 10 percent controlled 80 percent of all stock. That means the skips and dips of the market tell you very much about how the best-off are doing, but considerably less about how the great bulk beneath are faring.

To focus on the performance of the market, then, is to zero in on an economic indicator that can do well even as the country does poorly. In 2006, for instance, the Dow Jones industrial average hit highs. According to the just released census data, however, median earnings fell 1 percent, and millions more Americans entered the ranks of the uninsured. Indeed, from 2000 to 2007, the S&P 500 gained more than 500 points; meanwhile, the median household’s income, at least as of 2006, fell by more than $ 900.

Part of the reason the movements of the stock market get so much more attention than those of the labor market is that the stock market more directly affects those with the power to publicize it. It is said that a recession is when your neighbor loses his job, and a depression is when you lose yours. Both, however, may pass without the individuals who run the nation’s media properties feeling even the slightest tremor of insecurity.

This is not their fault. We are an unequal nation, and our experiences of the economy are deeply varied. But the professional classes do own stock. When the market goes down, that represents, for them, real losses, and, on a gut level, a real story. Conversely, when the census numbers are released and earnings continue to stagnate, those are numbers without any connection to the economy that reporters and editors tend to experience. And that’s not even to get into their need to attract wealthy readers and viewers — those who are more likely to own stock — in order to keep advertisers happy. It’s no wonder, then, that the twists of the market are followed closely by the media.

The economy, however, is a complicated thing, particularly as inequality wrenches us further and further apart from one another. The merry green arrow not only neglects the hungry child but the median worker. It tells the story of one of our many economies, but not all, nor even most. And we can’t be unduly distracted by it.

How does Global Environmental issues impact developed and developing nations differently?

Question by Sally: How does Global Environmental issues impact developed and developing nations differently?
I’m doing a project on this and I believe I have an idea but I can’t seem to find specific things about this topic. How do they affect eachother? I know developing countries have a weaker economy and that must do something, and perhaps over population…

Can anyone help? Links or perhaps a bit of direction would be nice.

No fly fishing in Romania

Versiunea subtitrata mai explicita la www.youtube.com Too many micro hydro power plants will be installed on mountain rivers in Romania. The water will disappear as well the fishes and biodiversity. Environmental authorities are supporting or have a strange lack of interest to regulate all these. Renewable energy like that is going to destroy environment and landscape. If things not change, in one year time Romania will not have any river flowing down from alpine area but a lot a private people with full of money pockets.

Ramsey County has recognized Hmong Village on St. Paul’s East Side for its work to recycle and reduce food waste. Ramsey County’s Environmental Health Section has worked with Hmong Village’s owners and businesses to set up a successful recycling program that has collected more than 1,100 barrels of food waste for use at a local hog farm.

Ramsey County Commissioner Jim McDonough presented a recognition award to Hmong Village’s developers for their support of recycling efforts on Monday, April 4.

Hmong Village, 1001 Johnson Parkway, is a multi-use development that opened last year in a building formerly operated by the Saint Paul Schools. The development has more than 200 merchant stalls, 40 offices, 35 produce booths and 17 restaurants. Ramsey County’s Environmental Health Section partnered with Hmong Village’s owners to help set up, and provide training, for businesses to collect food waste, and other recyclables.

Baja Hummingbird (37)

Baja Hummingbird (37)

I can’t say enough good things about the group of guys with whom I spent the last few days in Baja. Our host, Erwan, has a little Airstream on a cliff above a pristine beach, right next to some of the best wind surfing and kite boarding water on the Sea of Cortez. I had met Erwan once before at one of James and Ashley’s famous pizza parties up in Saint Francisville. But, only after I went on some rant about economics did Erwan recall that we had sat by the pizza oven and shared a few beers. What can I say? I guess I am most memorable when I am rambling about some subject that I probably have no business speaking on.

The tip of the Baja peninsula was socked in with the same cold front that had Dallas and the rest of the south in its teeth when we landed in San Jose de Cabo at around 10:30PM on Thursday. We rented two small cars to accommodate all of the kite boarding gear and then set out for a two hour drive, late-night drive through the Mexican desert. Only when the sun rose on our frosty sleeping bags the next morning did I get a full picture of what the fuss was about. The landscape and sea were stunning. The water varied from deep turquoise to the faintest blue-green. The saguaro needled desert ran straight down to the water, sometimes in dramatic cliffs and sometimes along the bed on dry arroyos. Erwan had found himself an acre or two of paradise. The area is unspoiled, largely owing to its isolation. A good, paved road had just been put in a few year back. So, the little bungalows and palapa toped cabanas there had been constructed by folks who truly wanted to be in that spot. One did not accidentally find themselves in La Ventana. A person had to make a point of seeking out this windy bay near the point where the Sea of Cortez flows into the Pacific.

Those that had found these beaches and waves just a few miles north of the Tropic of Cancer had come for the wind. Being a rather poor swimmer, I am not a kite boarder or wind surfer or much of one for water sports in general, but those who apparently know say the conditions around La Ventana are ideal. You can find a spotty internet connection, there are few roadside, fish taco stands and the occasional tiendita selling Pacifico beer in large, bomb-like brown bottles. But, this area is most certainly not geared toward the idle tourist. I could not even locate any postcards to send to the friends who are accustomed to my regular mailings. It just isn’t that sort of spot. And so much the better.

Down the road a bit, some enterprising soul has but in a high-end cabana hotel where the little outbuildings rent for around 0 a day but the folks you see flying along the water, attached to the lunatic combination of a parachute and a surfboard, are more likely to be living out of a camper or renting a bit of thatch for . The slow-growing saguaro cactus, a visual icon of the American southwest but now largely gone because of development, abound here. The salty flat between Los Barilles and La Ventana is a forest of these alien looking monoliths. Raptors and vultures rides the thermal winds cooked up by the combination of sand and sun. Laughing gulls and pelicans bob on the cresting waves. In short, its is about as un-spoiled an area as you can find that also provides running water. The throbbing clubs and all-inclusive resorts of Cabo san Lucas feel about a million miles away.

I could go on about how precious this spot seemed to me or about how much I enjoyed sharing coffee with Bob, Erwan and James as the sun rose, orange and purple, over these little fingers of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. But, I think you get the idea. I’ll just close by thanking Erwan for his hospitality and for putting it all together, Bob for his endlessly positive embrace of life and its questions and to James for introducing me to these fine folks and this lovely part of the world. It was a trip I won’t forget.

This woman was typing away on a laptop computer … alas, it was not an Apple Powerbook. But maybe she doesn’t know any better. Just think: if she had been typing on a Mac, her photo probably would have been published a thousand times by now!

*****************

Late in the afternoon on the last day in March 2009, I walked into Bryant Park, which is located behind the New York Public Library, between 41st and 42nd Street, facing Avenue of the Americas. There were several people reading and basking in the sun, a couple people typing on their laptop computers, and one chess game underway. I spent about half an hour wandering around to see what looked photo-worthy, and then wandered off to get some dinner…

Why is climate change considered a political issue?

Question by Dastardly: Why is climate change considered a political issue?
Set aside the the vast consensus of scientific thought on anthropogenic climate change (and spare me the list of so-called objector “scientists”).

Isn’t limiting greenhouse gas emission and finding alternative fuels a wise policy choice regardless? Both in terms of gaining an edge in the development of new technologies and in reducing international conflict over hydrocarbon fuels???

ZIVELO Announces Tree-Planting Initiative

ZIVELO Announces Tree-Planting Initiative

Marion, IN (PRWEB) November 12, 2011

ZIVELO, a leader in the self-service kiosk and digital signage manufacturing industry, seeks to lead the industry into a new direction – a green one.

ZIVELO has partnered with Trees for the Future, a nonprofit organization that has planted over 65 million trees worldwide since 1989. ZIVELO has made a commitment to plant at least three trees for every kiosk that they sell to help offset their carbon foot print.

“ZIVELO has made sustainability part of their business by planting three trees for every kiosk sold. Their support allows us to work with communities that need these trees to meet their basic needs. By incorporating tree planting into their business model, they are helping communities such as Haiti transform their lives through planting fast-growing beneficial trees. By partnering with trees for the future, ZIVELO is showing how businesses can help drive sustainability locally and globally,” says Gorav Seth, Director of Finance and Operations at Trees for the Future.

Since the campaign’s launch in June of this year, nearly 6,000 trees have been planted thanks to ZIVELO’s contributions to Trees for the Future. ZIVELO is also working with local municipalities to plant trees throughout the city of Marion, Indiana to give back to the community that has given them their roots.

“Being environmentally friendly is one of the core values that have contributed to the foundation of our company and as an innovator within our industry, we have a social responsibility to set a positive example wherever we can,” says Ziver Birg, CEO of ZIVELO.

Being green isn’t a new trend for ZIVELO; some of the green initiatives that have been in place since the company’s inception include:


    Utilizing a minimum amount of post-consumer materials
    Providing recycling containers throughout all of their facilities
    Producing their kiosk enclosures from aircraft grade aluminum which is fully recyclable at the end of life
    Utilizing electronically bonded powder coat finishes that are approved by the EPA to be VOC free and can be retrieved and reused
    Offering purchase credits to organizations who want to trade in their unattractive, old, and outdated kiosks for ZIVELO terminals. These terminals will often be reused in third world countries or recycled via electronic recyclers.

ZIVELO has been recognized for their efforts as a green business by the software company, Advanced Solutions, who accepted them into the Autodesk Clean Tech Partner Program. This program supports the environmental advancements of technology pioneers by providing thousands of dollars worth of digital prototyping software to companies through their Clean Tech grants.

“We’re constantly developing processes to reduce manufacturing waste and offset our carbon foot print wherever possible,” says Birg, “It is our hope that other companies within the self-service technology industry will see the difference that we can make and join us in our efforts to make this world a greener place.”

About ZIVELO

ZIVELO has rapidly grown to become the world’s largest kiosk manufacturer, with over 250,000 square feet of manufacturing facilities and over 200 employees. ZIVELO’s product line is well known globally, and now has resellers and distributors in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, and South Africa. The design, engineering, and manufacturing of their public terminal systems are contained within the United States and are compliant with fair trade standards.
