  • Retirement Will Kill You (i.e., "Work Will Set You Free")... Obama's Ex-OMB Hack Says Work To Death

    Retirement Will Kill You Teddy Roosevelt once said “the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” Recent research suggests he may have been more right than he knew: Life’s “best prize” might actually extend life itself. Our common perception is that retirement is a time when we can relax and take better care of ourselves after stressful careers. But what if work itself is beneficial to our health, as several recent studies suggest? One of them, by Jennifer Montez of Harvard University and Anna Zajacova of the University of Wyoming,...

    Len Nichols, a health economist who teaches at Virginia's George Mason University, says without a requirement for coverage, Congress might have to find another way to make the consequences of not having insurance even more dramatic. For example, he says, perhaps if people don't buy insurance when it is first available, "if you ever try to buy insurance again, you'll have to pay three times the market price, and we will put a gold sticker on your forehead and say to all hospitals, 'You do not have to treat this person; this person has forfeited their right to uncompensated care.'...

    Claws bared in row over shelter for Auschwitz cat OSWIECIM, Poland (Reuters Life!) - A cat living at the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz has caused fur to fly between an animal care group and Polish authorities refusing to allow a shelter to be built for it. The grey and white cat, known variously as Rudolf or Bruno despite being female, can often be seen sitting near the notorious "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work sets you free") sign at the entrance to the camp. She has seemed unperturbed by an unusually cold winter in Poland that has seen night temperatures...

    Closure of Soviet Concentration Camps Where ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ First Appeared Recalled 23 December 2009 By Paul Goble VIENNA – The theft of the sign, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” which hung over the entrance to the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz has not only sparked international outrage but also called attention to the place where those words first hung at a place of detention of the innocent in the 20th century – the Solovetsky Camps of Special Assignment in the USSR. Seventy years ago this month, Yury Brodsky writes in today’s Novaya Gazeta, Stalin’s secret police chief Lavrenty Beria shut down...

    Investigators believe the infamous "Work Sets You Free" sign could have been destined for a private collector who was determined to own one the symbols of Nazi terror. Five people were detained yesterday during raids in a village near the northern city of Torun in connection with the robbery on Friday. Police found the inscription, which had hung over the entrance to the camp since 1940, hidden in woodland and covered with brushwood and snow. Dariusz Nowak, a police spokesman, described the suspects as "common criminals" aged 20 to 39, and said they would face up to 10 years in...

    A crazed collector may be behind the extraordinary theft from Auschwitz concentration camp of the "Arbeit Macht Frei“ sign, which was been recovered after a 72-hour nationwide manhunt by Polish police. The iron sign — which means “Work Sets you Free” — had been split into three parts, each separate word wrapped in cloth and hidden in Polish woodland. Five men, aged between 20 and 39 from the Torun area of northern Poland, have been arrested and Andrzej Rokita, deputy commander of Cracow police, described them as non-political. “We can say that none of the five are members of a...

    One of the most chilling reminders of the Holocaust has been found by the Polish Government. The sign outside the Auschwitz concentration camp which said Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Will Set You Free) was taken down from the gate of the former death camp sometime Friday night. Police spokeswoman Katarzyna Padlo said police believe it was stolen between 3:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday morning, when museum guards noticed that it was missing and alerted police. Padlo also said that the iron sign, which spanned a gate at the main entrance to the former Nazi death camp in southern Poland,...

    The slickly organised theft of one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust sent a wave of outrage around the world yesterday. The sign that hung over the gates of Auschwitz extermination camp, where more than a million people died during the Second World War, was stolen in minutes. Polish police suspect that the culprits were either neo-Nazis or acting on behalf of collectors or a group of individuals. The slogan wrought in iron, Arbeit Macht Frei (“Work sets you free”), was the cynical welcome to those entering the camp in the 1940s. One million of the 1.1 million...

    The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill Tuesday to strengthen national service by increasing funding for thousands of volunteers. The House approved 275-149 the Senate-passed Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature. "Just one month ago, in his address to Congress, President Obama called upon Congress to pass legislation 'to encourage a renewed spirit of national service for this and future generations,'" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. "Today, the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act is on its way to his desk to become law." Obama...

    A demonstration against the "Islamization of Europe," where participants planned a moment of silence to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 attacks in the United States, was brutally suppressed by Belgian police acting on instructions from the Socialist mayor of Brussels Freddy Thielemans. The mayor described the police violence as a “precautionary measure.” “The demonstration was very offensive to our Muslim citizens,” Thielemans pointed out. “To be against Islamization is, in their eyes, an affront to God. And to choose 9/11, the day of the jihad of the martyrs, was abysmal timing. I can’t tell you how many calls I got...
