Markit said its report is "advance warning that stretched household finances will become a greater drag on consumer spending in the months ahead".

Among people in their 30s, 46 percent described themselves as mostly or somewhat optimistic about aging, compared with 66 percent of people 70 and older. Likewise, respondents showed a decade-by-decade increase in feeling confident, not helpless, about aging, and in assessing their household finances positively. When asked to rate their quality of life, people noted an improvement as they moved from their 50s to their 60s and beyond. Among respondents 70 and older, two-thirds rated their life excellent or very good, compared with about half of 30-somethings. Least likely to fret about health Among some metrics, pessimism appears to grow as people move out of their 30s into middle age before falling late in life. Those 70 and older were least likely to express worry about age bringing poor health, a move into a nursing home or memory loss. They also were least likely to fear old age could prompt them to be disrespected or become a burden on their families.

I think we are inching closer and closer there, and for that, I am very proud. Solange also shared that growing up in a household filled with strong women was instrumental in developing this worldview. I grew up in a house with five women, she said. My mother, my sister B [Beyoncé], Kelly actually moved in with us when I was five. And my other I also consider [her] my sister, but she's actually my first cousin, Angie she moved in with us when I was 13. So this household was all women's work. Literally. And there was absolutely nothing that couldn't be done between us. My father was super smart and brilliant and instilled many wonderful qualities in us, but my other was really the heart and soul of the family.

It is more valuable than all the constitutions every devised. *** Reflecting on the calamity of this war, Ludwig von Mises wrote in 1919 One can say without exaggeration that inflation is an indispensable means of militarism. Without it, the repercussions of war on welfare become obvious much more quickly and penetratingly; war weariness would set in much earlier.*** In the entire run-up to war, George Bush just assumed as a matter of policy that it was his decision alone whether to invade Iraq. The objections by Ron Paul and some other members of Congress and vast numbers of the American population were reduced to little more than white noise in the background. Imagine if he had to raise the money for the war through taxes. It never would have happened. But he didnt have to. He knew the money would be there. So despite a $200 billion deficit, a $9 trillion debt, $5 trillion in outstanding debt instruments held by the public, a federal budget of $3 trillion, and falling tax receipts in 2001, Bush contemplated a war that has cost $525 billion dollars — or $4,681 per household.

The historian Thomas E Woods Jr observes that, during the 1950s and 1960s, between one-third and two-thirds of all US research talent was siphoned off into the military sector. It is, of course, impossible to know what innovations never appeared as a result of this diversion of resources and brainpower into the service of the military, but it was during the 1960s that we first began to notice Japan was outpacing us in the design and quality of a range of consumer goods, including household electronics and automobiles. *** Woods writes : “According to the US Department of Defense, during the four decades from 1947 through 1987 it used (in 1982 dollars) $7.62 trillion in capital resources. In 1985, the Department of Commerce estimated the value of the nation’s plant and equipment, and infrastructure, at just over $7.29 trillionThe amount spent over that period could have doubled the American capital stock or modernized and replaced its existing stock ”.

I was raised in an eccentric Jewish household outside congregational life and Israel. But Foer is speaking for affluent associated Jews, who have been inducted without asking into an army of support for Israel. They feel a tremendous responsibility. I must note that the hermetic environment of the book got to me. The world of the book is entirely Jewish, yet Foer does not seem aware of his entitlement. So he uses the wordschwartze” to characterize Jacob’s grandfather’s black neighborhood and meantime dwells joyously on Jacob's son's solemn declaration that he will never use the N word. He seeks to explain the high proportion of Nobel Prizes won by Jews22 percent— with phrases that feel dated as one of my late stepfather’s emails: “Judaism emphasizes intelligencetextually, ritualistically, and culturally….Jews have been training for Nobel Prizes for thousands of years.

70% of water withdrawals are due to agriculture Agriculture takes up the most water, worldwide. The U.N. said irrigation systems are responsible for most water withdrawals worldwide. That statistic gets worse when countries are not as developed, with irrigation responsible for over 90% of water withdrawal, the U.N. reports. This is particularly problematic as these countries are often those where access to water is already flawed. More efficient methods of farming and of providing crops with water need to be developed and used if the current situation is to be improved. Leaking taps waste around 5,500 liters of water a year Dripping taps, according to the British NGO Waterwise , waste a huge amount of water. To try and encourage us all to do our bit, the EPA have helped to run a Fix a Leak' week for close to a decade. The organization's Watersense program, said that over 10,000 gallons of water are wasted due to household leaks.

CNN's "New Day" ran a segment Wednesday morning questioning whether President Donald Trump is afraid of stairs. "A case of chivalry or a phobia?" said host Alisyn Camerota. "A theory about why President Trump grabbed the British Prime Minister's hand, now getting the thumb's down." British tabloids questioned in January whether Trump was afraid of stairs when he walked down a ramp holding hands with Prime Minister Theresa May. An anonymous source in 10 Downing Street said that Trump has bathmophobia, the fear of stairs and occasionally ramps. May shot down the rumor, telling Vogue , "I think he was actually being a gentleman. We were about to walk down a ramp and he said it might be a bit awkward." Nonetheless, CNN's Jeanne Moos said she was "slightly obsessed" about the rumor, helpfully noting it was "a fear common to household pets." She played footage of Trump walking down stairs while watching his step or clutching to railings.

Bill Gates says governments could use a robot tax to fund human services – it would also help remedy income inequality The idea of a tax on robots was raised last May in a draft report to the European parliament prepared by MEP Mady Delvaux from the committee on legal affairs. Emphasising how robots could boost inequality, the report proposed that there might be a “need to introduce corporate reporting requirements on the extent and proportion of the contribution of robotics and AI to the economic results of a company for the purpose of taxation and social security contributions.” The public reaction to Delvaux’s proposal has been overwhelmingly negative, with the notable exception of Bill Gates , who endorsed it . But we should not dismiss the idea out of hand. In just the past year, we have seen the proliferation of devices such as Google Home and Amazon Echo Dot (Alexa), which replace some aspects of household help.
