The Story Behind The Story: What's With Student Loans

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews Columnist The answer is - maybe nothing. Even the Washington elites can't agree. President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, that he was going to forgive between $10,000 and $20,000 of undergraduate and graduate student loans. However, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that the President doesn't have the authority to forgive the loans. That authority lies with Congress. President Biden is a lawyer but has never practiced law. Nancy Pelosi is not a lawyer, so I don't see this as a battle of the great legal minds. The question is what will get the most votes for the Democratic Party. Assuming that the loan forgiveness goes through, what will it mean for you and me? For those with outstanding student loans and now making less than $125,000 a year if single or $250,000 for a couple, you will most likely qualify for... Read more →

FIREFIGHTERS, NURSES, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT UNITE; Urge Biden to End COVID Restrictions

WASHINGTON, DC, August 25- Leaders representing a new coalition that unites Frontline Fire/EMS, Healthcare, and Law Enforcement personnel from across the country met today in Washington, DC. The National Coalition of Frontline Workers (NCFW) held in-person press conference in the Hay-Adams Room at the Hay-Adams Hotel on Thursday, August 25, at 3:00 PM. Their first call to action was to urge President Biden to terminate the National Emergency concerning COVID-19 and to sign into law federal legislation that will end all COVID-19 vaccine mandates. For generations, frontline workers felt underrepresented politically. Unprecedented mandates and coercive public policies enacted during the COVID-19 pandemic left many workers powerless. Then, on January 23, thousands of workers participated in the Defeat the Mandates March to hear speakers such as frontline worker Robert Malone, MD, among the original inventors of mRNA vaccine technology. That's where the idea for the organization was born. Voices from America's... Read more →

CNBNews Guest Opinion: Amazon’s Robot Workforce Could Doom The American Worker

By Jason Boyce The year is 2030. Most humans have been replaced by machines in U.S. warehouses and factories. Millions of Americans are out of work and struggling to find jobs as robots pack, sort, ship, and carry out the myriad duties that just ten years ago were the purview of living, breathing workers. There are little job prospects in sight for these workers as automation has completely taken over numerous industries. As fictitious as this sounds, it is not a scene out of a science-fiction novel, but instead a scenario that could occur in the very near future. Take, for example, Amazon’s recent launch of Proteus — the company’s first fully autonomous mobile robot. This should signal that much of the company’s workforce faces extinction by automation in the coming years.

Learning common triggers for aggressive behaviors in dogs may help you to diffuse a potentially dangerous situation.

DATA SHOWS MARIJUANA IS NOT HARMLESS

THE DANGERS OF MARIJUANA Marijuana is not a harmless drug. Although available evidence suggests that marijuana may be less likely than opiates, barbiturates, or alcohol to induce psychological and physical dependence in its users, it has the capacity to reduce the effective functioning of individuals under its influence, and prolonged or excessive use may cause harmful severe biological and social effects in many users. The recent report, Marijuana and Health, of the Institute of Medicine (1982:5 [reproduced in the appendix]) concludes: The scientific evidence published to date indicates that marijuana has a broad range of psychological and biological effects, some of which, at least under certain conditions, are harmful to human health. Unfortunately, the available information does not tell us how serious this risk may be. Overall, the report concludes (p. 5): [W]hat little we know for sure about the effects of marijuana on human health--and all that we have... Read more →

These warnings have included Enterococcus, blue-green algae, red tide, and a bacterium called Burkholderia pseudomallei (B. Pseudomallei), which can cause an illness called melioidosis.

NJBIA Statement on Law Mandating Employment Conditions in Ownership Transfers of Healthcare Facilities NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka issued the following statement following Gov. Phil Murphy signing of bill S-315 into law today, which mandates excessive employment conditions in the transfer of ownership of healthcare facilities. “While this bill intends to protect workers who already have protections, it once again strikes no balance for the concerns of the business and healthcare community and may, in fact, result in unintended consequences, like the closure of facilities. “This law now effectively forces a new owner to accept workers employed under the seller, whether they’re unionized or at-will employees. The new owner must accept wage and benefit terms negotiated by the former owner. “By requiring future employee layoffs be based on a seniority system, as this law does, a new owner no longer has the flexibility to maintain the best staff, which...
