    Joe Kernan doesn’t believe today’s unemployment claims

    His reasoning, it doesn’t feel like a good economy.

    Well if you stop seething at how Obama’s policies have worked to bring back growth, seven million jobs, record stock prices and record profits, maybe you’d feel differently you wing nut.

    Kernan is not a guy to listen to for financial advice. He should be ignored.

    I dont get that the Left has to come in with something more to pummel corporate America with ala the LA Times etc opinions about too many dividends and buybacks.

    Q2 business investment was 8.4%, much more than the 5.5% estimate.

    Bitch about their knee jerk hatred of Obama, their support for the idiots at the Chamber of Commerce and how they are the ones who killed corporate tax reform, after all if you jave revenue neutral reform, what do they get out of it?

    In Plastics and Cans, a Threat to Women
    August 28, 2014

    A few years ago, Jodi Flaws, a bioscientist at the University of Illinois, began testing a theory about the risks to women posed by the widely used industrial compound bisphenol A, or BPA.

    A series of studies had suggested that it could damage developing ovaries. But nobody knew how. So for a month, Dr. Flaws dosed young female mice with a BPA solution at a level comparable to estimated human exposure in the United States. She then examined their ovaries, focusing on the follicles, which contain the eggs.

    The effect of the BPA was immediately obvious.

    Compared with normal mice, the follicles of the treated mice were fewer and smaller. Further analysis showed that estradiol, the sex hormone essential for normal reproductive development, was not being produced at normal levels. BPA, it seemed, interferes with enzymes essential in the production of such hormones. Another study published by her laboratory this spring found that treated mice stopped producing viable eggs at an abnormally young age.
