Cooking in a Coffee Pot

Cooking in a Coffee Pot and Other Useful Tips for the Homeless By David Glenn Cox I write this for the millions who, like myself, are holed up in basements, garages, empty houses, fields, culverts and what have you. Guilty of being Americans and homeless, trying to make it through just one more day in the land of Fuck You and the home of the slave. I am at the top of the homeless pyramid; I still have internet access and a toilet. The one thing to remember about the homeless is that they (...)

Chinese drywall poses potential risks
By : sfgate - Sunday April 12, 2009
At the height of the U.S. housing boom, when building materials were in short supply, American construction companies used millions of pounds of Chinese-made drywall because it was abundant and cheap. Now that decision is haunting hundreds of homeowners and apartment dwellers who are concerned that the wallboard gives off fumes that can corrode copper pipes, blacken jewelry and silverware, and possibly sicken people.

Hidden Homeless Emerge as US Economy Worsens Global Research, March 26, 2009 Reuters SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Emergency shelters brimming with homeless people in California’s capital are quietly turning away more than 200 women and children a night in a sign of the deteriorating U.S. economy.

US mortgage crisis forces homeowners to take refuge in their cars

SUE ZEIDLER IN LOS ANGELES THEY are victims of the United States’ growing mortgage crisis - low-paid workers whose homes have been repossessed amid rising interest rates, a stagnant property market and a lax lending regime. But in Los Angeles, where having a car is as essential as owning a home, many are sleeping in their vehicles to ensure a roof over their head. Campaigners for the homeless expect more to hole up in their cars as they lose homes due to the problems that have (...)

The Hard Landing For Housing is Already Here
By : Solve et Coagula - Monday September 25, 2006
1 comment
The Hard Landing For Housing is Already Here The market is suddenly assuming that since energy prices are declining and mortgage rates are drifting down, consumer spending will pick up and the housing industry decline will end. In our view this outcome is highly unlikely. Our negative outlook for consumer spending is based far more on the end of the housing boom than it is on high oil prices. In turn, it is now evident that housing is already undergoing a hard landing that can’t be (...)

NEW YORK As a member of the National Guard, Nadine Beckford patrolled New York train stations after Sept. 11 with a 9mm pistol, then served a treacherous year in Iraq. Now, six months after returning, Beckford lives in a homeless shelter. "I’m just an ordinary person who served. I’m not embarrassed about my homelessness, because the circumstances that created it were not my fault," said Beckford, 30, who was a military-supply specialist at a base in Iraq that was a sitting (...)

VENEZUELA: Many Housing Plans, but Limited Resources

The Catastrophe Is Not Over
By : Jennifer Moses - Tuesday January 31, 2006
By Jennifer Moses BATON ROUGE, La. — While the rest of the country wakes up in the morning to read about the latest round of Washington scandals, the misery in Louisiana continues unabated. Except for a few older, historical neighborhoods on "high ground," New Orleans is uninhabitable, and Cameron Parish, in the southwest corner of the state, basically no longer exists, having been wiped out by Hurricane Rita.

TRAILER CASH: US paying $3,300/month to lease trailers for Katrina victims

If FEMA could distribute the fortune spent on trailers directly to those in need of housing, the recipients might find a much nicer place to live, and even have money left over for home repairs. But there’s a catch: That’s illegal Those displaced by Hurricane Katrina and seeking a temporary trailer don’t get to kick the tires or discuss financing plans, but a look at the ultimate sticker price might make them wish they could: $59,800. That’s the cost to taxpayers (...)

Discrimination against mobile dwellers in France
By : halemfrance.org/ - Wednesday January 18, 2006
Taxation without recognition? Although not recognised officially as housing, caravans will now be paying council tax. The 2006 finance law introduces council tax for people living in mobile, land-based dwellings, mainly caravans and camping-cars. This aggravates existing discrimination and contradicts recent presidential and government statements. The situation is pure dynamite. Will this blow it up? All depends on what will happen during the next few months. In fact, the law will only (...)

Fourteen children and three adults have died in a fire that swept through a building in Paris housing African immigrants, French police say. The fire broke out in the capital’s 13th district shortly after midnight. Thirty people were injured.

Paris’s poor struggle to find decent homes

By Kerstin Gehmlich PARIS. For the last year, Fatima Louarn and her family have shared a tiny Paris hotel room because they could find nowhere else to live. Now she is pregnant and the owner wants to kick her out. About 8,000 people live in shabby hotels in Paris, often sharing a bathroom with dozens of other people, and living off sandwiches because they are not allowed to cook in their rooms. "It’s not a life. You feel like you’re in prison," says Louarn, a 37-year-old (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
