Technology and the Katrina Recovery

Just wanted to share my thoughts about the human spirit this 5 years on since this disaster too place and how we adapt like animals in this kingdom, to changes in our lives. It always amazes me how we can feel about such an incredible disaster that took so many lives and then be able to gird our loins and get ourselves up and running in amazing ways. My personal belief has led me to a conclusion that this is the power of God in all of us spurring us on to put right what is so wrong, by moving in mysterious ways. That allows us from such a tragedy to recover and grow by mending our hearts and minds and enables us to see something good from something so bad.

Arizona Payday Lenders Leave State After Voters, Legislature Let High-Interest Loans Expire

Arizona Payday Lenders Leave State After Voters, Legislature Let High-Interest Loans Expire: "


These type of lending institutions are springing up all over the UK over the past few years and now due to the internet we have short-term lending institutions able to thrive and charge by providing loans for 7 days a massive loan interest upward of 2,467% APR but disguise it as just £75.00, some even add a hidden administration fee or front-end charge.


So great news and more of the states should follow suit as l pioneer my way in the UK of stopping as much illegal practices as possible.


The only way out of debt is good financial management advice given by honest people who charge nothing, as this only makes matters worse for the person in debt and is wrong. Help people out of debt not into debt and your business will grow as trust will exist within your everyday life.

Treasury Secretary Geithner — ‘Spinning’ Out of Control

Treasury Secretary Geithner — ‘Spinning’ Out of Control: "

I do not want to answer the figures quoted in your article Leo but to cover a more fundamental aspect of your article, namely that every week we are being told that things are improving but we see no evidence. The fact that these people like Tim Geithner believe their own hype has become even more evident when the cracks appear and become even larger fissures that by minting more from the Fed we cannot fill.


As we progress ever closer to the edge of this financial precipice we are being shown – what l truly believe we need to learn that the way we live our life has to change from profit to people first, that by making institutions more accountable with their profits and investing it back as a not-for-profit organisation should do we become more responsible as a bank, government or elected person, in charge of making peoples lives better and not lining our own pocket, with wages of sin.

Existing Homes Sales PLUNGE To 15-Year Low: "Sales of previously occupied homes plunged last month to the lowest level in 15 years, despite the lowest mortgage rates in decades and bargain prices in many areas.

Housing Fades as a Means to Build Wealth, Analysts Say

Housing Fades as a Means to Build Wealth, Analysts Say: "Housing will eventually recover from its great swoon. But many real estate experts now believe that home ownership will never again yield rewards like those enjoyed in the second half of the 20th century, when houses not only provided shelter but also a plump nest egg.
The wealth generated by housing in those decades, particularly on [...]

Housing Fades as a Means to Build Wealth, Analysts Say

" This is something that has been on the cards since the collapse in the US of the sub-prime markets, one reason being that hedge funds bet on the market rising but sold their investments on the basis of the market falling " Basically this means by investing in what the market will do next you make a killing providing you get it right and as an owner of any hedge fund will know you cannot lose as you have your information from both the seller and the buyer namely yourself. Also as the market nose dived and hedge funds took to being unable to borrow at such competitive rates in the money markets through bonds then your so-called nest egg was losing value and they were making hay while the sun shined.

Is is the home owners that keep the hedge funds in business and when it falls due to people not buying at the high prices then the market collapses and in so doing as it is the largest asset most people buy, the so called double dip recession will bit us all hard.

So my advice is to retract borrowing and do not pay the prices of the houses at present as you will become a loser in the nest two years.

Government website to take on credit-card companies

Government website to take on credit-card companies: "

Credit-card users will be able to see if they are being ripped off at the click of a button using a government website set up to take on the banks.

"As long as this Government body has teeth and is not like so many a toothless or paper tiger we may see some progress in curbing credit card companies being able to wriggle out from their responsibilities and not always blaming the customer. Let us wait and see and l will update as matters proceed.

Payday loans industry needs extra safeguards

Payday loans industry needs extra safeguards: "

Borrowers are becoming dependent on high-cost credit they cannot afford to repay, research published today reveals. People are turning to supposedly 'last resort' payday loan companies again and again, rather than using them only in emergencies, says the Government-funded consumer champion Consumer Focus.

" For many a year and too many to remember the fact that regulations in this country have become abused by so called companies providing what l can call bail-out funds for the mandatory 7 days or in the US they are called pay-check loans. Simply you can borrow at arm and leg rates an amount of up to £750.00 and you repay just x or y interest some as much as 2,367% APR or more in some case.

Back in the 80`s as a broker companies were charging door to door as much as 182% but now it is normal just to say words such as - only or just as a way to placate themselves for charging such extortionate rates of interest, just to make a buck.

The rules relating to extortionate credit bargaining need to be tightened up and as soon as possible and remember if it seems too good to be true it usually is and its hidden in the small-print virtually unreadable unless you use a magnifying glass. Its time to put on all loans advertising and agreements in large black letters " This Loan Can Damage You And Your Families Financial Health " - what do you all think out there in the blogger`s world ?

Remember the Latin for interest is usura " interest " originally meaning charging of interest " more at Wikipedia for anyone interested. I prefer to say being used as in the English translation and in this case it is you being used and they are the users.

Profits up 40 per cent at Coventry BS

PROFIT BEFORE PEOPLE ITS TIME FOR PEOPLE BEFORE PROFIT ?

Profits up 40 per cent at Coventry BS: "

Coventry building Society posted record results yesterday as its conservative business model enabled it to thrive despite the credit crunch. The UK's third largest building society reported a 40 per cent jump in underlying pre-tax profit to £46.5m for the six months to 30 June.

" Many years ago people invested into building a future in this country and saved for their future l was one that believed in a good quality reputable building society and Coventry Economic as it was once know grew to become Coventry Building Society and still provides a good rate of return for all its products together with being local and handy to pop-in and put that odd £10.00 in on a Saturday morning or pay day.

It seems so long ago that people preferred building to banking their hard earned cash but by saving a £ in those days when you needed to get that first home, you had a human face to talk too and not some obscured Mr Nobody who is called a bank manager by name only but would struggle with a piggy bank. Of course not to say that all bank managers or banks are the same, but it does seem that more and more are only interested in profit and not people.

Bernanke soothes rattled markets

Bernanke soothes rattled markets: "Federal Reserve chairman boosted markets when he said the foundations for US
growth next year are present despite the recent slowdown."

Due to the ever growing debt problem this will be only a short respite as fears will become evident that chances of double-dip recession in the US is becoming more probable, as the only way to provide growth is by cutting debt and the only way to cut debt is by spending less. This may seem like l am telling people " How To Suck Eggs " but we need good financial management more than ever before it is too late. Please read the statement by Bernanke and let me know your thoughts ?

Franklin Graham, Evangelical Minister: Obama's 'Problem Is That He Was Born A Muslim' (VIDEO)


The fact that President Obama and his religious beliefs seem to have prevailed over this present situation more than the fact he was trying to bring forth a way for the Muslim Church to be built in an area that has thoughts related to terrorism and not to peace, has enabled us to forget the reason.



The news hounds and social media seem to have taken this fact of his Muslim connection and blown it out of all proportion and maybe to read this article and watch the video will lay to rest any speculation, but l feel that there is a lot more to this and it is related to vote catching. For anyone wanting to know more visit huffpost or follow this link and read the article for yourself. http://www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,1546579,00.html



But my favourite part is of the article in 2006 states -



" My Father was almost entirely absent from my childhood, having been divorced from my mother when l was 2 years old; in any event although my father had been raised a Muslim by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist ,thinking religion to be so much superstition"



Does this not speak for itself - look deeper do not guess and the answer is right in the

statement ?

Nancy Pelosi Questions Opponents Of 'Ground Zero Mosque'


This has now become a way to politically bash President Obama and the Democrats as it is all about one-up-man-ship as usual. As l wrote on my news blog and Time`s Swampland the way we use any small tit-bit of information to denigrate this building of a Mosque is amazing to say the least.



Let us spare a thought and be sensitive to people who lost their love ones in the 9/11 disaster and consider their feelings first. Then in a calm reverent way approach the subject of what we believe is right and wrong and maybe reach a compromise that is suitable for all parties.



As l said in previous posts this is becoming a question of racism over common sense and is now about whether President Obama is a Muslim or not as if this really matters in the present scheme of things.



My final word on this subject is that Nancy Pelosi is right and we need to question but only if at the end we can reach some sort of conclusion.



An idea allow all faiths and creeds to build a place of worship and try to bring peace not war as remembrance to the place we call Ground Zero,as at present we actually do have O to be thankful for and the way we are going it will remain so for many years to come, do not bash try to build.
