    Report comes after North Carolina senate proposes bill to ban predictions of increase in rates of sea-level rise. Research from the US Geological Survey (USGS) shows that sea levels are rising much faster between North Carolina and Massachusetts than anywhere else in the world.

Asbury Sallenger, an oceanographer at the USGS in St Petersburg, Florida, and his colleagues published their report today in Nature Climate Change1. They analysed tide-gauge records from around North America...

    Business weighs cost of immigration failure PHOENIX (Reuters) - Sheridan Bailey is offering workers $20 an hour to raise the steel building frames that are giving the U.S. city of Phoenix a taller skyline. Only thing is, he can't find any. "When we advertise, people don't show up, or if they do, they are not qualified," said Bailey, the chief executive officer of Ironco Enterprises. "We were paying $15.50 last year," he said. "We are now paying 20 bucks an hour and we're still not getting enough of what we need." The builder is one of hundreds of U.S. employers...

    According to the Russian astronomer Nikolai Fedorovsky, a giant comet flying at top speed is bound for Earth. Should the comet stay on the collision course, it may hit the planet in late October. The impact will cause devastating tsunamis, earthquakes and avalanches, says Fedorovsky. He saw the killer comet in a telescope two weeks ago. He managed to calculate the comet’s trajectory. We got in touch with Nikolai Fedorovsky: “I’m not trying to scare anybody, I just want to warn the public,” sums up Fedorovsky. “We should pay attention to this suspicious celestial body. We could obtain more accurate...

    FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF ST. LOUIS REVIEW ^ | July 1, 2006 | Laurence J. Kotlikoff
    SynopsisIs the United States bankrupt? Many would scoff at this notion. Others would argue that financial implosion is just around the corner. This paper explores these views from both partial and general equilibrium perspectives.

The paper offers three policies to eliminate the nation’s enormous fiscal gap and avert bankruptcy: a retail sales tax, personalized Social Security, and a globally...

What do topless dancers in Vegas have to do with terrorism, you may ask? Nothing, everyone agrees, unless perhaps you count the violence that some of the ladies inflict on the wallets of their mostly male clientele. Nevertheless, the FBI now confirms...
