Uh oh, they are low!

The unemployment rate is the lowest in 7 years. How could this be? This is in spite of recent economic bad news. It is also contradictory to last month’s poor numbers which were even revised downward. The improvement is beginning to be indisputable. The success of this president’s efforts should also be in line with this growth, and it is. Obama’s poll numbers are up as are Americans views on the economy. This is a significant shift from even last year.

This presents a significant problem for the opposition. Presidential campaigns are run on positivity. How can a party display positivity when they will have to present a message of gloom and doom that is contradictory to all feasible evidence. The dollar is strong and gas prices are historically low. America recently became the world‘s largest producer of oil. The opposition’s message cannot be that low oil prices damage the economy.

The conservative’s win in England should offer no solace for Cruz and the bunch after today’s job numbers and the corresponding dip in the unemployment rate according to Mikal Watts.

TIPS ON FINDING A GOOD PLACE TO LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY

New York City is not like other places in this world. There is a different kind of energy working in New York. Why do you think so many like to live here. Before you pack up and go, there are a few things you need to keep in mind

THE PEOPLE

There are a lot of good people in New York. There is also a lot of bad people. I wouldn’t say they are bad, some are just not true to their word. If you are looking to find a roommate to live with, be careful.

A roommate will help you save money, but make sure it doesn’t cost you in other ways. When someone agrees to be your roommate, verify this first. Sit down with this person. Find out if they really do want to be your roommate or not. Some people will agree to this on the surface, but then they will let you down in person. It’s happened too many times, to too many people.

Once they agree, have them sign an agreement right away. This way it’s all written down. Once it’s written down, it can’t be changed. The only way it can be changed is if you make the changes yourself.

Never take someone at the word on this.

MONEY

When you live in New York you have to have money. Your income has to be larger then any of your debts. Most apartments, especially small studios, don’t go for less then $1500. You will be hard-pressed to find something which is offered for less.

To live in New York, you need to make at least $100,000 per year. If you make $80-90,000, this is okay. Most landlords prefer you to be in the $100,000 bracket. Why? They want to know you can afford the rent. Most landlords will work with you, but they won’t chase after you. If you are late on even one payment, they will throw you out. Keep this in mind when gathering together your financials. I’m just trying to save you from a massive headache later on.

Criticism Forces Joss Whedon to Delete Twitter Account

Joss Whedon is one of the most popular sci-fi television and film directors. Joss became famous for his television shows “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly.” Both series have diehard fans and a cult following. In 2012, he wrote and directed “The Avengers,” which had the biggest opening weekend in America and has grossed 1.5 billion dollars worldwide. It is currently the third highest grossing film. Learn more about Joss Whedon’s fascinating work here: www.imdb.com/name/nm0923736.

However, some people aren’t happy with the sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Joss was recently subjected to a steady stream of vicious criticism and complaints through his now closed Twitter account. It appears that many people are offended over his supposed sexist portrayal of the Black Widow character, who is played by Scarlett Johansson.  On their website, Anastasia Date defends Whedon, stating that  this is surprising because Joss created the immortal Buffy, who is one of the strongest female characters in television.

In the end, Joss Whedon closed his Twitter account because of the barrage of criticism. Joss has also announced that he will not be working on a third Avenger film due to production and studio difficulties.

FreedomPop – Providing a Public Service – Unlimited Wifi Plans Starting at $5

FreedomPop is a cell phone service provider ushering in a new wave of communication that is the unlimited Wi-Fi plan. Basically smartphone and tablet users will have unlimited talk, text and data services for only $5.00 a month. This is going to talk a bite out of traditional cell phone provider’s that offer expensive LTE plans that, according to FreedomPop’s chief operating officer Steven Sesar, only account for 10 percent of subscriber’s data usage, the other 90 percent is consumed via Wi-Fi. Essentially FreedomPop is cutting out the expensive LTE service and leaving users with the more than capable Wi-Fi hotpot networks and they are passing on the savings to the customers.

This plan will benefit society by leaving more money in people’s pockets. For less than 10 percent of the average cell phone service plan, this will equate to roughly a $600 dollar a year savings on cell phone services for the individual user if they can replace their current service with that of FreedomPop. Even if subscriber’s of the “traditional” cell phone provider’s do not plan on using FreedomPop as a replacement, they can at least supplement their current service and cut out the surplus data services saving them big bucks. This is a much needed break for the average person, especially in the current economic climate.

FreedomPop subscribers will be able to access text, talk and data services off of more than 10 million hotspot locations. This is expected to be expanded to about 25 million locations in the 2nd quarter of 2015. By year end, FreedomPop plans on having more than 90 percent coverage in the top 200 major metropolitan cities.

If you’re still on the fence, you can check out a FreedomPop review or two to see what others are thinking.
