    Frustrated with rising prices? Check. Keep getting hit with more fees and charges? Check. You're paying for more channels than you'd ever want to watch? Check. These are just a handful of the most common complaints consumers have when it comes to grappling with cable companies. And it's not just anecdotal: A survey of subscribers on the nation's biggest cable providers has found that more than half of Americans would abandon their cable provider if they felt they could. Cable rage is real, and here's the data to prove it. Fifty-three percent of respondents to a recent survey said they'd...
  • Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America

    04/27/2014 5:16:35 AM PDT · by ilovesarah2012 · 81 replies
    Even the most dangerous cities in America can have relatively safe neighborhoods, as there is more variation in crime within most cities than between cities. But using exclusive data developed by NeighborhoodScout, and based on FBI data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America, we here report those specific neighborhoods in America that have the highest predicted rates of violent crime per 1,000 neighborhood residents of all. Violent crimes include murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. These neighborhoods are the epicenters of violence in America, where social issues are likely to ignite into violence and spread....

    The Obama administration insisted that the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans erupted from a protest over an anti-Muslim video because any hint of organized terrorism would have debunked President Barack Obama's assertions that his Mideast policy was working, Sen. Jim Inhofe said on Saturday. "They were pushing the video thing because it was just a matter of days before that he had made the American people think that his Middle East policy had stopped all terrorist activity," the Oklahoma Republican told Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News program. "This was a couple of months before the election. "Obviously, with...

    “Historians and pundits always say that the first real decision a governor makes is the one of running mate,” Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, Ohio Democrats’ likely nominee for governor next year, wrote to supporters when he announced he had chosen state Sen. Eric Kearney (D) as his running mate. FitzGerald may be starting to wish voters weren’t paying attention to his first gubernatorial decision. That’s because, in the two weeks since joining the ticket, Kearney has been under almost constant barrage for owing back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. And the campaign’s response to the revelations about their...

Take their grand prize winner for worst charity, Kids Wish Network. Less than 3% of the millions it raises annually actually goes to help dying children; in the last decade, it gave nearly $110 million to corporate solicitors. Almost all of the worst charities have that in common; in fact, many are funded by the solicitors themselves, acting essentially as front companies

This dump site may or may not contain 3.5 million copies of the notorious video-game adaptation of E.T. The local government in Alagora, New Mexico has given the go-ahead to the documentary crew of Fuel Industries to break ground in a underground desert dump site. The Canadian based company hopes to be Indiana Jones and uncover secrets from the past about Atari, namely the location of the unsold E.T. games. This level of excitement over mthyos...

This year, Charleston, W.Va. ranked lowest on the pollster's index of well-being in metropolitan areas. It displaced Huntington-Ashland, W.Va.-Ky.-Ohio, which came in last place the previous two years. The index ranks well-being by averaging scores in six categories: Life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors, and access to basic necessities.

    As we approach the 32nd anniversary of John Lennon’s death, I think it’s time to take a hard look at the song that — sadly and improperly — personifies Lennon’s legacy for far too many people. That song is “Imagine.” Why this weak entry in Lennon’s dazzling oeuvre receives such adoration mystifies me. The song features a syrupy melody, a cloying piano line, none of the startling chord or time changes that distinguished Lennon’s great Beatles songs, and no memorable hook. Lyrically it’s even worse. There are lines in this song that a young John Lennon would have savaged. “No...

    Today's jobs report says the US added just 96,000 jobs in August, 34,000 less than expected. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from July's 8.3 percent, but that's only because people stopped looking for work, not because they found a job. It's hard out there on the ragged edge of the economy, but take a look at GlobalPost's 7 worst jobs. Earning an honest buck has never been this hard.

The modern op-ed dates from 1921, when New York World editor Herbert Bayard Swope first inflicted the genre upon the world.

Americans of all political persuasions can come together in affirming one proposition: Public life would be improved by scrubbing Rep. Alan Grayson from it. This act of civic hygiene probably will be performed Nov. 2 by voters of Florida’s Eighth Congressional District. Polls indicate that a majority of them plan to deny Grayson, 52, a second term by electing his resonantly named opponent, Daniel Webster.

The pessimism from traders came one day after the Federal Reserve downgraded its outlook for the economic recovery amid fears of a double-dip recession. Wednesday's tough day on the markets is the latest piece of difficult news for the White House, which is trying to promote last year's $787 billion stimulus through a series of events it has dubbed the "recovery summer."

    UN ambassador compares situation to days when Zionism deemed racism. Israel's current standing in the United Nations is the worst it has been in nearly forty years, said Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Gabriela Shalev, in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday. "Our situation in recent months can be compared to the 1970s, when Zionism was being called racism," said Shalev. Shalev added in the interview that as far as she knew the Libyan backed aid ship, the Almathea, which originally planned to sail to Gaza, "has left Greece and is headed for [Egyptian Port] El-Arish.

    European Jewry is in its worst condition since the end of World War II. This bleak evaluation was delivered by European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor on Tuesday. "Jews are afraid to walk the streets in Europe with Jewish symbols", Kantor said.

EJP (European Jewish Press) reports that Kantor was speaking at a lunch meeting in Brussels, organized in honor of Belgium’s ascendance to the presidency of the European Union. The participants were members of the European Parliament...

    On any given day in the Bay Area, it's common to come across aspiring musicians hawking homemade music CDs on the streets of Oakland, Berkeley or San Francisco.Kazi Reeves, 25, who spends time each week outside Peet's Coffee Shop on Oakland's Lakeshore Avenue, is an easygoing pitchman who uses an iPod and headphones to offer potential customers a free sample.He is unabashedly friendly and upbeat, except when it comes to the Johannes Mehserle trial in Los Angeles."I expect an unfair verdict," Reeves said. "A fair verdict would at least be manslaughter," he said. Anything less "would be enough for me...

    Polling Question: Who Do You Think Is The Worst President Of The U.S. In The Last 100 Years? President Carter Should Be Happy President Carter has long been considered the worst President of the United States in the last 100 years. No longer as Barack Obama has eclipsed him in the latest poll just out from AHF Polling. Only by 3% but this is significant as America continues a massive decline economically as more and more stimulus bills are introduced now monthly by the Democrats and Obama. These bills can only further erode the U.S. economically month after month as...

    The forced march to pass ObamaCare continues, and all that matters now is raw politics. But opponents should go down swinging, and that means exposing such policy debacles as President Obama's 11th-hour decision to apply the 2.9% Medicare payroll tax to "unearned income." That's what savings and investment income are called in Washington, and this destructive tax wasn't in either the House or Senate bills, though it may now become law with almost no scrutiny.
