How Many Minimum-Wage Hours Does It Take to Afford a Decent Life? - News So much of the talk surrounding the jobs crisis focuses on unemployment, but a huge portion of those who do have jobs are barely clinging to a decent lifestyle. In 2010, one in five American adults worked for poverty-level wages, 4.4 million of whom earned wages at or below the federal minimum. The infographic above, from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, makes painfully clear just how hard it is to make ends meet on these wages. Want a modest two-bedroom apartment in New York state for the standard 30 percent of your income? You're going to have to toil at a minimum-wage job for 136 hours a week.

Within Every Woman - The Documentary Film by Tiffany Hsiung Dear Supporters, We are coming down to the last hours! Our goal is to increase the number of BACKERS to 800. Grand Budapest Hotel: Saoirse Ronan Talks Muppets, Cakes and Mexico Whoops, I just outed Saoirse Ronan's surprise cameo in Muppets Most Wanted… to Saoirse Ronan. You'd think she would have been aware of that, but although she shot an amusing little sequence where she ballet danced on "The Muppet Show" in Ireland, she didn't know she'd made it into the finished film until I told her. She also psyched me out by saying she didn't have a birthmark on her face in the shape of Mexico in her new film The Grand Budapest Hotel, and ladies and gentlemen, she's a great actress.

Sisters of mercy, devotion — and dismay In Philadelphia last week, a child sexual abuse trial involving Catholic clergy led to a bombshell — a bishop from West Virginia was accused of abuse. In Kansas City, a Catholic bishop goes on trial in September, accused of failing to report suspected child abuse. Last year church officials paid $144 million to settle abuse allegations and cover legal bills, and although many of the cases went back decades, church auditors have warned of "growing complacency" about protecting children today. So who's in trouble with the Vatican? Nuns. You know, the thousands of women who took vows of poverty to work with the poor, the sick and disabled. New World Order Conspiracy Illuminati Mason Freemason NASA Moon Mars Apollo Lucifer Antichrist Conspiracy An excerpt from William Cooper's site website reposts conspiracy musings but thatdoes not mean we necessarily endorse the theories presentedwe are not affiliated with the author of this article] To make interstellar travel believable NASA was created. The Apollo Space Program foisted the idea that man could travel to, and walk upon, the moon. Every Apollo mission was carefully rehearsed and then filmed in large sound stages at the Atomic Energy Commissions Top Secret test site in the Nevada Desert and in a secured and guarded sound stage at the Walt Disney Studios within which was a huge scale mock-up of the moon.All names, missions, landing sites, and events in the Apollo Space Program echoed the occult metaphors, rituals, and symbology of the Illuminati's secret religion.

Powaqqatsi Powaqqatsi, or Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation, is the 1988 sequel to the experimental 1982 documentary film Koyaanisqatsi, by Godfrey Reggio. It is the second film in the Qatsi trilogy. Powaqqatsi is a Hopi word meaning “parasitic way of life” or “life in transition” . While Koyaanisqatsi focused on modern life in industrial countries, Powaqqatsi, which similarly has no dialogue, focuses more on the conflict in third world countries between traditional ways of life and the new ways of life introduced with industrialization. As with Koyaanisqatsi (1982) and the third and final part of the ‘Qatsi’ trilogy, Naqoyqatsi (2002), the film is strongly related to its soundtrack, written by Philip Glass.

Get over it, haters – apps really are the future, says Wired publisher There has been a growing revolt in the publishing community against the idea that iPhone and iPad apps are the best route to digital dollars. The Financial Times shuttered its apps this month, while a popular essay by another publisher lamented that apps were a “collective delusion” and an expensive failure. That’s bunk, according to Wired publisher Howard Mittman, who said in a recent interview that apps have proven “incredibly profitable” and touts the publication’s 165,000 tablet subscribers (65,000 of these are pure-digital subs).

Rosewater: ‘Jon Stewart's skills are considerable’ Twenty years ago I used to wonder if Jon Stewart was ever going to come into his own. It was obvious he was brilliant, but TV didn’t have a format for his gifts. Some soon-cancelled chatshows, a couple of movies, a book, and the endless treadmill of the stand-up circuit: these were his lot. Turned out his perfect format was being worn by a jockish fratboy with a hip sportscaster’s shtick called Craig Kilborn: The Daily Show. Within a couple of years – particularly during the weeks-long Florida recount controversy of 2000, when he and his Daily Show reporters stopped shaving and washing, as if caught in some neverending seventh news-cycle of hell – Stewart had made the format his own.
