Most economists discuss homelessness from a statistical perspective. Vange Ocasio Hochheimer speaks from firsthand experience. As a teen growing up in the Bronx, she became homeless when her mother abruptly returned to Puerto Rico. A neighbor took her in until Ocasio Hochheimer was able to rent a tiny room. "I was working and going to high school, and I remember walking from the subway station through a very bad part of town with a hoodie thrown over my head because I did not want to see all the drugs and prostitution around me.".

Most parents in the U.S. provide some sort of financial support to their adult children, multiple surveys have found. But often, financial aid goes the other way. A 2015 survey by TD Ameritrade found 13% of American adults provided financial support to a parent. Millennials were far more likely than older generations to report they were helping their folks. Of people born between 1981 and 1996, 19% helped support their parents, compared with 13% of Gen Xers (1965 to 1980) and 8% of baby boomers (1946 to 1964). Sometimes the money is provided happily, or at least without resentment, by those following cultural norms or personal conviction that they owe it to their parents. Other times, financial aid to parents is a source of tension – betwee.

“Want to make thousands from your own home? Want to do it in 30 days? Come work for us!”Sounds like a dream, sign me up! Whoa, whoa, whoa. Not so fast. These claims of overnight success are empty promises made by businesses like 30 Day Success Formula. More than 150 complainants reported to the Better Business Bureau that the company promised them they could earn thousands of dollars when they sign up and pay to become a member. However, the dream is short-lived when the only “product” they receive are flyers to help them recruit others into the program. The victims said the company also told them if they didn’t make back their initial investment within 90 days, they would receive a refund. But promises continued to fall short when flyers

If you’re looking for a company that’s growing at a healthy clip, pays a dividend and has been increasing that dividend regularly, take a closer look at Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX). Its dividend recently yielded 1.7%. And that payout has been increased by an average of more than 20% annually over the past five years, with more room to grow. With its strong brand and plenty of customer loyalty, Starbucks has been able to sell a relatively simple product – coffee – at premium rates. Its commitments to purchasing goods from ethical sources and to being environmentally friendly reflect a focus on important issues that resonate with its customers. In its last fiscal year, Starbucks posted revenue of $26.5 billion, up 7% over year-ago levels – impre.

I vividly remember hoping – cross-the-fingers wishing – for a home-loan rate of less than 12 percent. In the early 1980s, double-digit interest rates had bobbed up and down like a kid in an autumn apple barrel. We had one child in the house, another one on the way and I knew exactly how much cash the bank would lend us if rates remained steady. “Man-o-man, just give me 11 and seven-eighths,” I said aloud at the dinner table. “We can fly with anything under 12.”Today, while some consumers are gambling and waiting for the absolute bottom (like stocks, you won’t know until they move up), I’m encouraging folks who are shopping for a home or planning to stay put for a few years to lock in to a program that seems best for them. If you are refina.

Twitter’s new ban on political ads will cover appeals for votes, solicitations for campaign contributions and any political content. But the company quickly acknowledged Friday that it expects to make mistakes as individuals and groups look for loopholes. Twitter is defining political content to include any ad that references a candidate, political party, government official, ballot measure, or legislative or judicial outcome. The ban also applies to all ads – even non-political ones – from candidates, political parties and elected or appointed government officials. However, Twitter is allowing ads related to social causes such as climate change, gun control and abortion. People and groups running such ads won’t be able to target those ads

Maplewood Garden assisted-living facility will get nearly $300,000 in improvements, according to permits issued by the city. The four buildings at the retirement community at 1100 N.

DALLAS – The union president of Southwest Airlines pilots worries that Boeing may be rushing the 737 Max back into service, and he says Southwest should consider buying planes from another company. The union president, Jon Weaks, said Boeing is raising the threat of shutting down the Max assembly line to pressure regulators to let the plane fly again soon and force airlines to resume making payments on their Max jets and absorb some costs of getting the planes back in the air. "Boeing will never, and should not ever, be given the benefit of the doubt again," Weaks said.
