    Doug Z – Shredding vehicles results in its own environmental nightmare. For each ton of metal produced by a shredding facility, roughly 500 pounds of “shredding residue” is also produced, which includes polyurethane foams, metal oxides, glass and dirt. All totaled, about 4.5 million tons of that residue is already produced on average every year. Where does it go? Right into a landfill.

    —————————————–

    Not in all cases. The non steel (fluff where i worked) is sold. The place i worked stop taking the “cash for clunkers cars.” The stuff (i forget the name) they poured in the engines to make them non functional was poisonous. When a car was shredded it produced a powder that was toxic to breath.

    Ethanol gas has many problems I believe. One is the U.S. shouldn’t mandate making it, and especially in years with crop shortages. Use the corn for food first.

  • Doug Z

    Jeff, Mr usa

    2012 saw Fox News mark 11 years as the number one cable news channel in total viewers and the demo, though the election didn’t provide much in the way of a ratings bump, with the network only up a bit in total viewers, and down slightly in the demo.

    Unlike CNN, which was down in both total and demo viewers just about every hour, and MSNBC, which was up in both categories just about every hour, Fox News had some high points and low points, with most of its programs roughly on par with their 2011 performances. That said, the network still drew more viewers than CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in primetime. It was also the second-highest delivery for the network ever in total viewers.

    Good afternoon everyone,

    Cathy, “I’ve worked for a health insurance company, you are wrong on how they work. It’s not as easy as you get a large group of people to spread the risk.”

    I never said that is the ‘only’ way they operate, I said that government wants to do what insurance companies do which is spread the risk. It’s pretty logical.

    “I need your links to support your statements about schools too. And please don’t give me a NEA link. I want supported facts not the same NEA talking points”

    The income achievement gap is now more than twice as large as the black/white achievement gap. Furthermore, this gap is large when children enter kindergarten. To ignore these factors is to ignore the debate on education and the impact poverty has on it.

    Here is research that was done on it recently: http://cepa.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/reardon%20whither%20opportunity%20-%20chapter%205.pdf

    Are country is so educated

    I think it says something about the “target demographic” that is soooo important to media people that Fox News came in 2nd to freaking Nickelodeon in viewership in the oh-so-important “young” demo. These are the people who get their news from John Stewart and spend the rest of their time watching SpongeBob.

    From the original article:

    “During the fourth quarter, FNC was the number two cable channel in total day, behind only Nickelodeon, the first time that has happened since 2003. It was a very close number three in primetime.

    Doug, I agree about Obama. The problem is most people who voted for him believe his for the middle class. Lots of fools in this country.

    The Avg inc has been way up over the years. The Med income , not so much.

    This is because of manufacturing and natural resources being shipped out of the country.

    Mitt was BHO as Gov.Why vote for more of the same. Because he said he changed?

    Where do you work?

    ————————

    Self employed. I’m a gigolo. :razz:

    No offense Doug Z I don’t give out personal info on the net. I get spousal support from Faith3 as long as i don’t remarry. :grin:

    Heres the junk yard i was referring to. I call it a junk yard. They don’t sell parts like a “typical” junk yard. All cars are scrapped/ground for recycling.

    You can click on “location” to see some of the satellite yards.

  • Faith3

    I’m sorry Doug but how can manufactoring/resources guarantee income security? Places that have high levels of manufactoring and/or resource development may mean great GDP for a country but GDP does not mean a decent living for working people. Sure, at one time it did before the race to the bottom model became a popular policy worldwide. Now the norm is the inequality gap in many countries including ours.

  • Faith3

    ^Manufacturing^

  • Jeff

    If Newt would remain Newt, and not join the silly stupid race to the extreme whacko right with the chick fil a idiots, he would of been a formidable candidate based on his impressive record as a politician and his work on the 90’s economy. He also believed in compromise, that did not make him a lib.

  • Doug Z

    It is pretty funny to see the Fox News/Rove/Bush haters revel in any slip in ratings but don’t ever mention the ratings for the loony left talking head’s suck.

    Air America ….RIP!

    Newsweek ….RIP!

    Liberal Curent TV ….poof sold to big oil!

    And the eventual death of the Old Grey Lady aka The New York Times which is losing money at a breathless rate.

    Faith3

    Manufacturing and natural resources produce product, that is real money. Everything else lives off the products and the money they create. Without them all you have is service that produces very little , but is the by-product. You need it all , but Manufacturing and natural resources is the foundation of it all .

  • d.d.

    Faith3,

    Stanford has excellent abstracts & articles on education in their SUSE Open Archive section. I read it prn.

    The income achievement gap has been growing steadily for at least 50 YEARS.

    “Does a dollar buy more achievement than it did before, or do the rich just have more dollars than they did before? Dollar of income (or factors correlated with income) appears to buy more academic achievement than it did several decades ago.

    In sum, the forces at work behind the rising income achievement gap are likely complex and interconnected, but, many of the other patterns in this chapter are not fully consistent with the simple explanation that income inequality has driven these trends.

    * Education policy increasingly focuses on standardized-test scores as outcome measures for schools. As these scores become more important, families may be increasingly likely to invest in improving their children’s scores. GOOD !

    I found this difficult to follow not being able to compare statements to graphs side by side…. I did a lot of ping ponging back & forth.

    I said that you owe copy right to me.

  • Faith3

    Hi d.d,

    I don’t know what is causing this disparity but can tell you for fact in the low income school I taught at, their was a GREAT disparity in skills when these children were benchmarked day one of kindergarten. It is a trend. Many low income children are coming into school far behind their wealthier peers for basic skills. One thing the school was able to do, largely due to federal funds, was set into place programs designed to address these gaps early. Consequently, our school won an award for being one out of a few to show success closing the gap. I’m not sure if those specific programs still exist at that school. I can tell you many cuts happened which our superintendent tried to slow down to some degree. Hopefully, they didn’t lose those programs.
