Biology Exam From Scotland     This is straight  from Scotland. Students in an advanced Biology class were taking their mid-term  exam.   The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk.   The question was worth 70 points or none at all. One student, in  particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages.     However, he wrote: 1) It is perfect formula for the child. 2) It provides immunity against  several diseases. 3) It is always the right temperature. 4) It is inexpensive. 5) It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa. 6) It is always available as needed.   And then the student was stuck. Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test,  he wrote:   7) It comes in two attractive containers and it's high enough off the ground whe...

INFO THAT EFFECTS US WHERE WE LIVE THIS QUARTER Some people felt there was really nothing to say after Housing Starts dropped 3.0% in August, to a 1.126 million annual rate. But, as usual, a deeper dive into the data gives us plenty to talk about. While it's obvious that home building took a summer break in August, it's been pretty active the last 12 months, with starts in that period up 14.9% for single-family units and up 16.6% overall. Some see that trend continuing at least through the end of 2016. They say that with population growth and tear downs, housing starts need to get to about 1.5 million units annually, so there's lots of recovery still to come.  We could get there sooner than some think, since new building permits went up 3.5% in August, climbing to a 1.170 million yearly...

THE TIME IS UPON US WHAT WILL 9/17/15 BRING US?The Federal Reserve will decide whether or not to raise interest rates on Thursday, September 17. Will they do it? To find the answer, I have stayed away from black and white analysis of the economy. For example, a strong jobs report would likely bring about a rate hike. Last month, a disappointing 173,000 jobs were created (200,000 is typically the goal). Even though unemployment sunk again to 5.1%, the employment participation rate is only 62.6%, a multi-decade low. This number, in reality, only raises more questions. Have a record number of Americans given up looking for work, or is low participation due to Baby Boomers retiring in droves, while Millennials are staying in school longer than ever? We predict a fiery debate when Fed offici...
