    Boston Herald ^ | 11/9/12
    The shuttered sister company of the Framingham pharmacy at the center of the nation’s deadly meningitis outbreak is laying off hundreds of workers, including many permanently, as it struggles under a temporary closing order issued last month amid questions about its sterility process. Westboro-based Ameridose LLC notified workers in a letter that it would begin a “mass layoff” starting tomorrow, a process that will affect roughly 650 workers at the company and another 140 at the marketing company, Medical Sales Management, with which it works directly. The companies have the same owners as New England Compounding Center, the Framingham company...
  • Exclusive - Inside Orca: How the Romney Campaign Suppressed Its Own Vote

    As Republicans try to explain their Election Day losses in terms of policy, tactics, and strategy, one factor is emerging as the essential difference between the Obama and Romney campaigns on November 6: the absolute failure of Romney’s get-out-the-vote effort, which underperformed even John McCain’s lackluster 2008 turnout. One culprit appears to be “Orca,” the Romney’s massive technology effort, which failed completely. ... Likewise, Twitchy recorded widespread real-time complaints and criticisms on Twitter by Project Orca volunteers. At one point during Election Day, the system had malfunctioned so badly that desperate volunteers wondered if the program had been hacked. ......
  • Energizer to Slash Workforce by 10% – Or About 1,500 Jobs

    Energizer announced today it will layoff 10% of its workforce. 1,500 will be affected. Plants in Missouri and Vermont are slated for closure. StL Today reported: Energizer Holdings Inc. will reduce its global workforce by more than 10 percent — or about 1,500 employees — as the company closes three manufacturing plants and streamlines other operations. The moves are part of a companywide restructuring plan for the maker of batteries and personal care items such as Schick razors and Playtex tampons. Energizer said Thursday it plans to save about $200 million in annual pre-tax savings through the changes. In August,...

    Republican Party Begins Election Review To Find Out What Went Wrong Peter Wallsten Top Republican officials, stunned by the extent of their election losses Tuesday night, have begun an exhaustive review to figure out what went so wrong and how to fix it. Party leaders said they already had planned to poll voters in battleground states starting Tuesday night in anticipation of a Mitt Romney victory — to immediately begin laying the groundwork for midterm congressional elections and a Romney 2016 reelection bid. But as they watched one state after another go to President Obama and Senate seats fall away,...

But an armed customer of Adi Coney Island, 6171 Michigan, who is permitted to carry a concealed firearm, turned the tables on the would-be crooks. Gunfire erupted and bullets were exchanged. When the smoke cleared, one of the 29-year-old robbers had endured a fatal gunshot wound and later died.

    Bradley Manning, the US soldier accused of handing hundreds of thousands of classified diplomatic files to Wikileaks, has offered to plead to guilty to some of the charges against him. Private Manning's lawyers said the 24-year-old was prepared to "accept responsibility" for some of the 34 charges but would continue to contest the US government's case that he aided al Qaeda and compromised America's national security. A US military judge will decide whether to accept his unusual offer, which was made unilaterally and not as part of plea bargain with prosecutors. …

    Asian Americans Overwhelmingly Backed Obama, Democrats By Kim Geiger November 8, 2012 Much has been made of the Latino vote and its crucial role in boosting President Obama to victory, but it was Asian Americans who made the most dramatic shift in support for the president Tuesday. Exit polls show that 73% of Asian Americans backed Obama, an 11-point increase since 2008. Asian Americans came out in such force for Obama that they topped Latinos as his second-most supportive ethnic group, behind African Americans. Latinos, who made up 10% of the electorate, went 67% for Obama, 5 points higher than...

    Movies often serve as a useful shorthand for how to address some of life’s issues. In the movie Usual Suspects, Keyser Soze is confronted with the fact that his wife and children would be an impediment in dealing with his business competitors. In a way the House GOP finds itself in the same position as Keyser Soze. Our home has been invaded. Our family despoiled. And we are facing a never ending series of ever increasing demands from the criminals who have abused us. Sometimes the only way out of a dilemma is by clearing the table and starting again...

    The Philadelphia School Reform Commission moved Wednesday to borrow $300 million - money it needs just to pay teachers, heat buildings, and buy books for the rest of the school year. Chairman Pedro Ramos made it clear that the SRC's back was to the wall and that the state of its finances constituted "dire circumstances" for the district. "I couldn't be more unhappy that we're in a situation where it's necessary to do a borrowing for the purposes of merely paying our bills," Ramos said. The bond sale the SRC unanimously authorized at the Wednesday special meeting comes with a...

    Those who think that the immigration issue was not a primary concern for the American Latino community in the 2012 election may want to think again. While the Catholic Church strongly urged its parishioners to vote against a president that championed secular values, Obama only lost 7% of white Catholic voters but gained votes among Latino Catholics. The religious component of their vote became secondary to the immigration issue.

    Greek unemployment rose to 25.4pc in August. Youth unemployment rose to 58pc. Under the official forecast, the economy will contract by a further 4.5pc next year, so it fair to assume that lots more people are going to lose their jobs. It is certainly not going to improve in any meaningful way for years to come. This is what happens when you lock into the wrong currency and block the escape routes – or join a "burning building with no exits" in the words of William Hague. Even if Greeks comply with all demands, public debt will reach 179pc...

    A 30-year-old Russian man has shot dead six of his colleagues at a pharmaceutical company in Moscow. Dmitry Vinogradov was granted access to the building as he worked at the firm as a lawyer. He changed into camouflage gear and armed himself with two semi-automatic rifles, before shooting dead four men and two women at their desks. Another woman was wounded. Following the rampage, Vinogradov gave himself up to security guards.

    Republicans know they’re going to have to budge on revenues in the looming debt and spending debate. The question is when to blink. The problem: Revenue increases, which could solve the fiscal cliff riddle this fall, are also their best bargaining chip for an even bigger fight to overhaul the Tax Code expected next year. GOP lawmakers — especially those on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee — say tax increases should happen only as part of a fundamental Tax Code rewrite that also lowers marginal tax rates, a policy dream that won’t be realized until next year at the...

    If you haven't heard yet about the GOP's huge "demographics problem," then get ready, because you'll be hearing about it a lot over the coming days and weeks. The media will hammer on the idea that the GOP is doomed by the rapid "diversification" of America, because they want to demoralize the American people. Many of the GOP-elite who pushed Romney on their base will concur, mainly because it's a convenient way to deal with their loss without pointing the finger at themselves. But neither of these groups are living in Realville, where there is no demographic problem that can't...

    The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama’s victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican waiting to emerge in the Hispanic population. If Republicans want to change their stance on immigration, they should do so on the merits, not out of a belief that only immigration policy...

    Based on CNN vote totals and estimated percentage of votes in by state (a number of states still have less than 90% votes counted), through spreadsheet analysis Romney will end up with approximately 64 million votes; McCain received approximately 60 million votes. Of course, we can't know how the uncounted votes will turn out; my assumption is that it matches the relative percentages of the votes already counted in each state. I'd be pretty surprised if it ended up less than 3 million more votes for Romney than McCain. Even adjusting McCain's total upward to reflect growth in the voting...

    The battle for the U.S. Senate between Tim Kaine and George Allen in Virginia may have been settled in the litter box instead of the ballot box if the tightly contested election had come down to about 6,000 votes given to a cat. It’s entirely possible that third-place finisher in Virginia is Hank the Cat, a Maine Coon who ran on a pro-feline, job-creation platform. In the current online results, Kaine is ahead of Allen by about 184,000 votes as of Thursday morning. The race was expected to be very close, and it was part of a record spending spree...

The incident occurred on November 1st at 4.15 a.m. eastern time and wasn't revealed publicly because the drone was on a classified mission.

    Mark Levin responds to calls from conservative commentators, like Charles Krauthammer, to grant amnesty to illegal immigration in order to entice Hispanics to vote Republican. Levin explains why this won't work and what a slippery slope amnesty would be. (Mark Levin Show, November 8, 2012) MARK LEVIN: You know, I've always known this, but I'm coming to the conclusion yet again that Republican leaders are really stupid people. And I'm coming to the conclusion that are an awful lot of stupid people posing as commentators on cable TV. I mean, where do these people come from? Now, this immigration issue....

    What could be worse than Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense? Another post-racial RINO (Republican in name only) with an antipathy for Israel: Yiddish speaking former Shabbos goy Colin Powell. One new name that has become a topic of speculation on military listservs and among Democratic national security hands in recent days is that of retired four-star Gen. Colin Powell. The moderate Republican former Secretary of State, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and National Security Adviser to Ronald Reagan post-Iran Contra famously endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008. Powell has consulted with Obama on Iraq and Afghanistan...
  • Joy-Ann Reid Dismisses Black, Hispanic Republicans As Mere 'Window-Dressing'

    As if she half-expected conformity, the Grio's managing editor Joy-Ann Reid expressed doubt on MSNBC's Now with Alex Wagner that conservatives will ever be enlightened enough to move enough towards the center to win an election. Diversifying the messengers beyond white men and women simply isn't good enough to Reid, who condescendingly described Black and Hispanic Republicans as "window dressing" and "decoration": [video below, MP3 audio here ]

    Christie — a potential 2016 White House contender — said he worked harder than just about every other Republican to elect Romney, and that his recent praise of Obama had nothing to with Romney’s loss. “My activity with President Obama was just another chapter in the leadership I’ve tried to show in this state, which is people care more about getting things done than they care about partisanship,” he said Wednesday. “And I’m going to continue to conduct myself that way.”

    President Obama's second term may include some cabinet reshuffling, and guess who might become Secretary of Defense.... Yes, Chuck Hagel. Many believe that current Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is only going to stay on as long as he has to, and sources say candidates for replacing him are already being discussed. Chuck Hagel, former Republican senator from Nebraska and good friend of the President’s, is being mentioned as a top candidate according to Politico. But the prospect of Hagel in such a high-level position would be a cause for concern for the state of Israel seeing as he has a...

    Deadly Ebola & Lassa Viruses May Be More Common Than Thought Wynne Parry, LiveScience Contributor Date: 08 November 2012 Time: 02:01 PM ETEbola and Lassa are hemorrhagic fevers, made memorable by the horrific symptoms that can accompany them. First identified about four decades ago, these killer viruses can cause their victims to bleed both internally and from the mucosal membranes of the eyes, nose and elsewhere. A severe infection can also produce neurological problems, including tremors and brain swelling. But mounting evidence indicates these terrifying diseases, which occur in Africa, may not be the terrifying new arrivals — called emerging...
