Rural poverty - Social mobility in a Social Economic Vacuum etc

From my days in the 90's in sociology class in college the terms many used
where "Not brought up yet." to describe a whole mess of rural life
relating to the term "Social mobility" leading to a "Social economic vacuum."

A society that makes nothing so they have nothing helping no one.
Less income to afford to grow or have good credit as credit takes money
you have to buy something for good credit. Healthcare can't afford to use it.
Lack of sales etc all kept in check in the cost of low pay. 

Your zip code keeping you impoverished because of the surroundings of unskilled
drug making people and crime. Like how you would move to a bad neighborhood
to find out your car insurance jumped up costing you more. Like having less pay!

And having a education does not get you out of poverty! Relating it's said
"Your education is only worth the paper it's printed on." Rural places can't afford
good paper. So many colleges are more in view as a career college with the pay
out in the world as such! You get what you pay for in the world and they are broke!
Education is needed and so if you can't make it there you need to go where the money
is. "A small town might have a low cost of living but so does a trailer park, doesn't
mean you would want to live there!" - My college sociology instructor.

There is too much stuff to post so do the research for a light of whats around you!

~~~~~Intergenerational mobility
According to the 2007 "American Dream Report" study, "by some measurements" relative mobility between generations -- "we are actually a less mobile society than many other nations, including Canada, France, Germany and most Scandinavian countries. This challenges the notion of America as the land of opportunity." Other research places the U.S. among the least economically mobile countries.

Another 2007 study ("Economic Mobility Project: Across Generations") found significant upward "absolute" mobility from the late 1960s to 2007, with two-thirds of those who were children in 1968 reporting more household income than their parents (although most of this growth in total family income can be attributed to the increasing number of women who work since male earnings have stayed relatively stable throughout this time).

However, in terms of relative mobility it stated: "contrary to American beliefs about equality of opportunity, a child’s economic position is heavily influenced by that of his or her parents." 42% of children born to parents in the bottom fifth of the income distribution ("quintile") remain in the bottom, while 39% born to parents in the top fifth remain at the top. Only half of the generation studied exceeded their parents economic standing by moving up one or more quintiles. Moving between quintiles is more frequent in the middle quintiles (2-4) than in the lowest and highest quintiles. Of those in one of the quintiles 2-4 in 1996, approximately 35% stayed in the same quintile; and approximately 22% went up one quintile or down one quintile (moves of more than one quintile are rarer). 39% of those who were born into the top quintile as children in 1968 are likely to stay there, and 23% end up in the fourth quintile. Children previously from lower-income families had only a 1% chance of having an income that ranks in the top 5%. On the other hand, the children of wealthy families have a 22% chance of reaching the top 5%.

~~~~~Intragenerational mobility
According to a 2007 study by the US Treasury Department, Americans concerned over the recent growth in inequality (after-tax income of the top 1% earners has grown by 176% percent from 1979 to 2007 while it grew only 9% for the lowest 20%) can be reassured by the healthy income mobility in America: "There was considerable income mobility of individuals [within a single generation] in the U.S. economy during the 1996 through 2005 period as over half of taxpayers moved to a different income quintile over this period".

Other studies were less impressed with the rate of individual mobility in the United States. A 2007 inequality and mobility study (by Kopczuk, Saez and Song) and 2011 CBO study on "Trends in the Distribution of Household Income, found the pattern of annual and long-term earnings inequality "very close", or "only modestly" different. Another source described it as the mobility of "the guy who works in the college bookstore and has a real job by his early thirties," rather than poor people rising to middle class or middle income rising to wealth.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_mobility

Noting that the 2005 year faced the U.S. recession of December 2007 on.
Income mobility became a slug at that time for the poor along with groups
keeping workers from getting raises. "Americans for Prosperity" keeping the pay
low so many workers would stay home more often for more isolation from sales!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subprime_mortgage_crisis

~~~~~A child born to parents with income in the lowest quintile is more than ten times more likely to end up in the lowest quintile than the highest as an adult (43 percent versus 4 percent). And, a child born to parents in the highest quintile is five times more likely to end up in the highest quintile than the lowest (40 percent versus 8 percent).

This is due to lower- and working-class parents (where at least one has at most a high school diploma) spending less time on average with their children in their earliest years of life and not being as involved in their children's education and time out of school. This parenting style, known as "accomplishment of natural growth" differs from the style of middle-class and upper-class parents (with at least one parent having higher education), known as "cultural cultivation". More affluent social classes are able to spend more time with their children at early ages, and children receive more exposure to interactions and activities that lead to cognitive and non-cognitive development: things like verbal communication, parent-child engagement, and being read to daily. These children's parents are much more involved in their academics and their free time; placing them in extracurricular activities which develop not only additional non-cognitive skills but also academic values, habits, and abilities to better communicate and interact with authority figures. Lower class children often attend lower quality schools, receive less attention from teachers, and ask for help much less than their higher class peers. The chances for social mobility are primarily determined by the family a child is born into. Today, the gaps seen in both access to education and educational success (graduating from a higher institution) is even larger. Today, while college applicants from every socioeconomic class are equally qualified, 75% of all entering freshmen classes at top-tier American institutions belong to the uppermost socioeconomic quartile. A family's class determines the amount of investment and involvement parents have in their children's educational abilities and success from their earliest years of life, leaving low-income students with less chance for academic success and social mobility due to the effects that the (common) parenting style of the lower and working-class have on their outlook on and success in education.

~~~~~Prevalence
The first target of the Millennium Development Goals was to decrease the extent of extreme poverty by one-half by the year 2015, which could not be achieved. Poverty remains a predominantly rural problem, with a majority of the world’s poor located in rural areas. It is estimated that 76 percent of the developing world’s poor live in rural areas, well above the overall population share living in rural areas, which is only 58 percent. Disparities between rural and urban areas is on the rise, particularly in many developing and transitional countries. Globally, rural people and rural places tend to be disadvantaged relative to their urban counterparts and poverty rates increase as rural areas become more remote. Individuals living in rural areas tend to have less access to social services, exacerbating the effects of rural poverty.

So that points to the need to bring the wages up to stop the poverty!
The bridge out of poverty... Raise the wages! 
Well I don't think they can reach the middle class it's too far to go with no 
foundation for it! Living down only to have minimum wage retirement
from spending your life at your dead end job!

How LED Lighting May Compromise Your Health and Questions Why

I knew artificial lighting was not good for you. I was using a fluorescent light bulb
once until it burned out and when I changed it I found a dead wasp stuck in the twist
of the light the wasp was bleached white over time. So what is that doing to me 
over time and what about the LED types?

Also the question if those lights do that why is it there in the first place?
Wanting our eyesight to be altered? It brings up the point, why do it knowing
something like that is bad for us long term. Why else did they do it?
Why the effort to get rid of the near-infrared or infrared-A from the lights?

There are many saying that LED lights are the same lights people seen
from the light on a UFO. It would point about reverse engineering
lights that can harm us. And if so what else are we heading for?
The point of going with things that can hurt us. And a needed note
to be aware about things around you. Only you can take of yourself!

This story is about questions that many should be asking about!

~~~~~How LED Lighting May Compromise Your Health
Can light affect your health? In this interview, Dr. Alexander Wunsch, a world class expert on photobiology, shares the hidden dangers of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting that most people are completely unaware of.

In fact, this could potentially be one of the most important video interviews I've done, as it has enormous impacts — not only on preventing blindness as you age but it is also a pervasive hidden risk factor for sabotaging your health.

Physicists think that infrared radiation is just thermal waste. But from the viewpoint of a physician, this is absolutely not true; in the last 30 years there have been hundreds of scientific papers published on the beneficial aspects of a certain part in the spectrum, which is called near-infrared or infrared-A."

Near-Infrared Is Critical for Mitochondrial and Eye Health
The near-infrared range affects your health in a number of important ways. For example, it helps prime the cells in your retina for repair and regenerate.

Since LEDs have virtually no infrared and an excess of blue light that generates reactive oxygen species (ROS), this explains why LEDs are so harmful for your eyes and overall health.

Chromophores are molecules that absorb light. There's an optical tissue window that ranges from 600 to 1,400 nm, which means it is almost completely covered by the infrared-A part of the spectrum. This optical tissue window allows the radiation to penetrate several centimeters or at least an inch or more into the tissue.

Chromophores are found in your mitochondria and in activated water molecules. In your mitochondria, there's also a specific molecule called cytochrome c oxidase, which is involved in the energy production within the mitochondria. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) — cellular energy — is the end product.

ATP is the fuel your cells need for all of their varied functions, including ion transport, synthesizing and metabolism. Remarkably, your body produces your body weight in ATP every day. And, while you can survive for several minutes without oxygen, were all ATP production to suddenly stop, you'd die within 15 seconds.

~~~~~Can Small LED Lights Impact Your Health Negatively?
The Secret Risks of LED Lights
One of the main concerns with LED lights relates to red LED lights, one of the oldest varieties still on the market. Those red LEDs were made with a substance called AGA (aluminum gallium arsenide), which is toxic in concentrated amounts. If you are directly exposed to this material on work sights or through contact with broken bulbs, it can be hazardous to your health. Side effects of toxicity from AGA include respiratory, kidney, and reproductive issues in laboratory studies. The lead content in red LEDs is also toxic when directly exposed, and should be avoided.

"In general, quality of life (QoL or QOL) is the perceived quality of an individual's daily life, that is, an assessment of their well-being or lack thereof. This includes all emotional, social and physical aspects of the individual's life. In health care, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is an assessment of how the individual's well-being may be affected over time by a disease, disability or disorder."

Signs The Universe Is Trying To Set You Up With “The One” and so Let the Universe Guide You



In a positive sense it's said "Life's like a spinning ocean mate!"
or "Not mine spinning's the ocean heat?" In other words the universe
is doing it not anyone else.

Albert Einstein said "That powerful, universal, governing force is love."
And so love is for the better of all as love is love bring all up!
Many becoming one making better stronger things. If it makes you a better
person then it's all not that bad! We are talking about the universe and it
does those things for a reason! Listen, learn and love!

~~~~~7 Signs The Universe Is Trying To Set You Up With “The One”
It's easy to feel like the universe doesn't have your back when you're looking for "The One" and well, nothing's happening. You keep dating the same type of people who are all wrong for you. You keep dating people who don't want a serious relationship. Or, you just never happen to meet anyone who catches your interest romantically. When you're making zero progress on the love front, it can make you feel like the universe just wants you to give up. But according to experts, that's not necessarily true. In fact, the universe is trying to set you up with "The One" right now and you may not even realize it.

"I believe that in a lifetime we are in constant communication with the universe," Jenna Matlin, clairvoyant intuitive of The Queen of Wands Tarot, tells Bustle. She says we're "co-writing the story of our lives" and it's a dance between what our ego wants and what we're meant to learn and have.

When people put their intention to find love out there, it's usually delivered. "The universe nudges you in directions to get you there, but often we ignore it," she says. "The sky does not erupt into fireworks when you finally meet them. Usually, it's quiet. You will just know but in that soft kind of way." Matlin says the universe is actually always trying to show you "The One". But the question is, are you ready to pay attention?

So what are the subtle signs it tries to send your way? Here are some easy-to-miss indicators the universe is trying to hook you up with your soulmate, according to experts.

1You're Finally Done Messing Around With The Wrong Ones

The universe is profoundly generous, Matlin says. If you step off one boat, it's only a matter of time before the next one arrives. "We can only get these Ones if we are being absolutely, hardcore, 100 percent honest with ourselves," she says. When you're ready to meet "The One," there'll be a shift within you. The little things and red flags that you've tolerated in past relationships just won't work for you anymore. You'll be honest with yourself about what you want and what you don't want. When that happens, it's easier for you to open up and give people you would usually write-off a chance.

"Sometimes the chemistry is not instant and it's usually not one you are traditionally physically attracted to," Matlin says. "It's a strange, subtle energy but 'The One' shows up when we really understand who we need."

2You're At Peace With Yourself

When the universe is trying to hook you up with "The One," couples therapist, Alisha Powell, PhD, tells Bustle, you'll finally feel at peace with yourself. "You’ve started to address past hurts and other people may comment on the positive changes they’ve noticed in you," she says.

3You've Come To The Conclusion That None Of Your Exes Were "The One"

It's easy to feel like the universe doesn't have your back when you're looking for "The One" and well, nothing's happening. You keep dating the same type of people who are all wrong for you. You keep dating people who don't want a serious relationship. Or, you just never happen to meet anyone who catches your interest romantically. When you're making zero progress on the love front, it can make you feel like the universe just wants you to give up. But according to experts, that's not necessarily true. In fact, the universe is trying to set you up with "The One" right now and you may not even realize it.

"I believe that in a lifetime we are in constant communication with the universe," Jenna Matlin, clairvoyant intuitive of The Queen of Wands Tarot, tells Bustle. She says we're "co-writing the story of our lives" and it's a dance between what our ego wants and what we're meant to learn and have.

When people put their intention to find love out there, it's usually delivered. "The universe nudges you in directions to get you there, but often we ignore it," she says. "The sky does not erupt into fireworks when you finally meet them. Usually, it's quiet. You will just know but in that soft kind of way." Matlin says the universe is actually always trying to show you "The One". But the question is, are you ready to pay attention?

So what are the subtle signs it tries to send your way? Here are some easy-to-miss indicators the universe is trying to hook you up with your soulmate, according to experts.

4You Keep Running Into The Same Person Over And Over Again

If you keep running into the same over person and over again, or your family and friends keep mentioning them to you, pay attention. "Life may be pushing you towards this person," Tessina says.

5You Keep Dreaming About A Particular Someone

Whether or not dreams actually mean anything is really up to you. But if you keep seeing the same person pop up in your dream, a stranger or someone you know, it could be important. As Tessina says, "Your subconscious may be trying to tell you to pay attention to them."

6You'll See A Lot Of Repetition In The Most Random Ways

There are no such things as coincidences, so what most of us would categorize as such is always a sign," licensed spiritual guide, Kristen Engelke, RScP, tells Bustle. Signs often come in repetition, from various sources that appear suddenly and randomly. For example, you may hear the same random love song play over and over again throughout the day from different places. You may be bombarded by news stories of couples getting engaged or finding true love. If you ever thought, "Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something," Engelke says, you're probably right.

"Sometimes these events would line up over the course of an entire day or maybe a week," she says. "It's obvious if you really look and listen."

7You'll Get This Feeling Of "Knowing" When You Finally Meet This Person

"Sometimes you may meet someone and just know they are 'The One,'" psychic and spiritual counselor Davida Rappaport tells Bustle. It may not happen right away and some people have a hard time recognizing it all. But if something inside of you feels like this person is right, they really might be it. The best part is that it could be a mutual feeling. "There is a good chance that they also know you are 'The One' for them," Rappaport says. It may take some time for them to make that same conclusion, but in time, they will.

It can be hard to recognize when the universe is giving you signs. As you can see, a lot of these signs are shifts that take place within you. But rest assured, the universe is on your side. If you want love, you will get it. It may take time, patience, and some work on yourself. But when you finally find "The One" things will fall in place.

~~~~~How to Let the Universe Guide You
We live in a society obsessed with controlling outcomes. In fact, we’re so convinced that we can make sure everything goes according to our plan that even our design-y motivational prints and totes and coffee mugs reinforce this message.

Glance at Pinterest or Instagram and you’ll see what I mean.

Hustle harder! Make sh*t happen! Get stuff done! Kick ass! Get after it!

These messages are everywhere. They all imply that we have to work really hard … and that we can force things to happen the way we want. That, in fact, we’re slackers if we don’t.

There’s nothing wrong with holding big visions and doing things that challenge, fulfill, excite and move you. That’s awesome. The problem comes when we convince ourselves that we need a certain outcome — and that it has to happen on our timeline, in the way we’ve pictured it.

When we try to control outcomes, we cut ourselves off from the loving energy of the Universe and let fear call the shots. Fortunately, in any given moment you have a choice. You can choose to reconnect with the Universe.

Follow these steps to remind yourself of this powerful connection. Grab a notebook or open a Google doc, because you’ll be doing some writing.
Step 1: Be determined to see with love.

What are you saying, out loud or to yourself, that’s disconnecting you from your power? Identify your low-vibe story. For instance, maybe you tell yourself that dating is really hard and full of disappointment. Or maybe you come home every day and vent about how much you hate your job.

Once you’ve identified your low-vibe story, take a moment to get real about how it makes you feel. Recognize the way your words and beliefs block the support of the Universe.

What is the number one low-vibe story that you have on repeat, and how does it make you feel? Write it down.

Your honesty here is everything — it’s what opens the door for you to remember and accept your hidden power. Take a moment to reread your low-vibe story and how it makes you feel.

Once you’ve read your story, immediately say out loud: “I am determined to see this with love. I surrender this story and let the Universe do its thing.”

Be the nonjudgmental witness of your fear and surrender it to the Universe.
Step 2: Let your feelings navigate your path.

The next step in unlocking your hidden power is to get clear about how you want to feel.

What does it feel like to be in a place of joy? What do you want to manifest into your life and how do you want to feel?

Write about it.

Step 3: Ask for your sign.

This is the fun part! Asking for a sign means that you’re willing to collaborate with the Universe. It means that you’re committed to releasing structure and control to instead be led by a power greater than you.

Asking for clear guidance is an exercise in receiving good, orderly direction that is unrelated to what you think is right. Remember and trust that the Universe has a better plan than you do. (If you don’t get your sign, that’s a sign too!)

You can ask for a sign to guide you toward anything you desire. If you’re unsure about a decision or you simply want to know whether you’re on the right track, ask for a sign.

And don’t get hung up about what your sign should be. Just choose the first thing that comes to your mind. Maybe you think of an animal, a number sequence, a song or a book title. Just let whatever comes to your mind become your sign.

Without overthinking, decide what your sign will be. Write it down now.

Step 4: Turn it over to the Universe and be patient.

Now turn over your desire to the Universe with a prayer: Thank you, Universe, for offering me clarity. Show me my sign if I’m moving in the right direction.

After you say the prayer, be patient.

Try not to control your sign. Your sign will be crystal clear if you’re going in the right direction. And remember that if it’s not clear, that too is divine guidance. My friend Colette Baron-Reid, a powerful psychic medium who first introduced me to the concept of asking for a sign, says that your sign needs to be like a billboard, so clear that you cannot deny it.

If you don’t get your sign right away, don’t worry. There may be some personal fears you need to clear up, or perhaps faith you need to strengthen, before you can get it. If you’re not getting your sign right away consider that your impatience may be blocking it.

Often when we’re impatient it is because we don’t trust in the outcome. When you try to control an outcome or even a time frame, you cut off communication with the Universe and disconnect from all the infinite possibilities that could occur. Surrender to the Universe and remember that nothing can take away your true power: the love and peace within you.

The Universe loves and supports us all. We just need to remember to realign with the energy of love so that we can receive it.

Step 5: Welcome creative possibilities.

Of course, asking for signs is just one way we allow the Universe to support us. We should also be open to creative opportunities. When we’re willing to design our life from a creative place, the Universe can come out and play.

If you’re ready to receive creative possibilities, say this prayer: Thank you, Universe, for transforming limitation and doubt into creative possibilities.

Use this prayer when your logical mind gets the best of you, and stay open to receive new ways to perceive your circumstances. Be willing to let go of what you think you need and allow the power of the Universe to lead you to something wondrous and unexpected!

Remember that joy is the ultimate creator. Fun, joyful energy is right in line with the love of the Universe. What would happen if you chose to be more playful and have more fun? This concept may bring up resistance because we’re taught to live in the opposite way. We’re taught that we must struggle to achieve. We learn that good things don’t happen without a lot of blood, sweat and tears. I challenge you to move beyond these beliefs of limitation and suffering. I challenge you to accept that you’re here to have fun.

Get psyched about your capacity to connect with the Universe. You have denied your power for far too long. Now is your time to receive love, light and a sense of deep connection.

As I say Republicans like to cut off their legs to save their toe.
A one legged wolf caught in a trap! It's common here in America

Joe Martinez. He says his creepy encounter saved his life.

As it's said drugs are to heal and so if you are not using them to to heal 
yourself then you have a monkey on your back. Or even worse a dog like
something on your back! Truly fucked up showing there is a spiritual side
and so you have the power to do good or else not good.

Something for people to think about!

~~~~~This Man Struggled With Addiction Until He Saw Something in 
This Photo That Scared Him Straight.

A few years back, Martinez, who was heavily involved with drugs at the time, accompanied his wife to his in-law's anniversary party. It was your typical family gathering, that is until Martinez saw himself in a photo that was taken that evening.

Hovering over his shoulder, was the image of a demon, or who Martinez believes could have been Satan himself.

After seeing this jarring picture, Martinez said he was literally scared straight—he quit using drugs—and to this day, he still carries the picture in his wallet to remind him of the man he used to be.

Martinez insists that he's shared the picture with many reputable paranormal investigators who claim the photo hasn't been tampered with.

Regardless of whether or not it's a weird shadow, or you know, the devil's fur baby, at least some good came of it for Martinez.

Our story about the band Quiet City 1995



Quiet City was a band in 1995. At that time my sister was going to be 
married but my dad got sick and was in the hospital in bad shape, 
he was still alive but unconscious. 

So we all knew dad would of said to go on with it, so we did.
The band Quiet City was playing in the other banquet room in the hotel 
my sister had her reception at. They where touched by what was going on 
so they put us on their credits. We where also touched by their song 
"Touch Tomorrow" as what our family was going through.

This was not the only time my sister was on the credits of a band.
We met the band "Firehouse" in the 90's in a truck stop in Missouri
she gave the singer a tip on how to play a video game he was failing at. 
So he put her on the credits for helping!

If you hurt out there like we all did know there is a tomorrow!

Language of Data: Analyzing the State of the Union

Bringing light to the devaluation of America over the years lacking the need
to go forward but to be put in the situation of barely making it in a changing world.
There is the need to be doing better than we are!

~~~~~The Language of Data: Analyzing the State of the Union
January 31, 2018 by datascience@berkeley Staff

Each president’s first State of the Union address is an attempt to set the tone for his term in office — what are the administration’s goals, plans and promises for the years to come? Those questions dominate the 24-hour news cycle around this yearly address to Congress. Nearly 50 million people tuned in to watch President Obama’s first State of the Union address in 2010. On Tuesday, the television audience for President Trump’s State of the Union was closer to 46 million, but his speech was the most tweeted about of all time with over 4.5 million tweets, according to Twitter.

It’s been more than a century since President Woodrow Wilson’s first State of the Union address, and while the language presidents use to communicate has evolved, many of the words, phrases, and ideas have stood the test of time.

Comparing those words, over time, is one way to hold presidencies up against each other, to assess the ways in which presidential communication has changed. How can we objectively compare one early-term State of the Union address to another? Data analysis can be used to transform otherwise dry, static information into comparable statistics that show trends across words, presidents, and years.

A warning about my K-Meleon db types!

A warning about my K-Meleon db type browsers, they are
too old and insecure for the dangers out there now!

Because of the dangers of the internet I do not recommend
using K-Meleon for banking or shopping online.
Also you should use the newest type of K-Meleon
for security. My types are too old to use and is why
I gave up on them the engine was too old and my
security settings started to do no good at the time
so I stopped working on it. K-Meleon is cool but needs to focus
on security so for now take common sense on what you are doing!

Real life story: My husband let my boyfriend move in

As I say it's best to really be honest with each other. Throughout history it's always
the same, having a secret affair ending in some hostile PTSD! Why? 
Society does grow up over time as in the red scare back then vs looking
at society today in people not wanting wars but their 5G connections, gay marriages
all around freedom to live without a cost to others. It's a time to be brought up!

Life is short! if you are 50 then 50 years are gone and you have 20 to go before
you hit 70! Accepting each others needs is something that people should be thinking 
about otherwise the relationship is just a form of being a prisoner until the end
not being well adjusted! There is that need to accept it's a fail and to fix it!

Polyandry? Well there is nothing worse that the male ego going awry.
Polygyny is like a drunk redneck at a country concert nothing good comes from that.
So having two men that accept each other for the females best interest seems more
educated by proxy as the men realize it's not about them it's about her!
And so is the point of healing to make a better life for all!

~~~~~Real life story: My husband let my boyfriend move in
Married for seven years, but incompatible in bed, Holly Ritchey, asked her husband if he’d mind her dating other people.

So, with his blessing, the mum-of-three from Maryland, US, set about finding another lover.

And, last month, Dan – who doesn’t want to date anyone else – gave permission for his wife’s boyfriend to move in with them.

“Walking up the aisle in March 2006, there was no doubt in my mind Dan was the only man I’d spend my life with,” Holly, 36, says.

“In my long white dress and tiara, it was all pretty traditional. Now we’re anything but!”

When the couple met nine years ago, Holly already had two grown up adopted children from a previous relationship.

And, after they married, she and Dan, now 37, went on to adopt another girl. But although she loved her husband, there was that issue in the bedroom.

“The internet offered loads of solutions,” Holly says. “Affairs, swinging, open marriage. There was no way I’d cheat on Dan though. And I didn’t just want meaningless sex. I wanted an emotional connection too.”

In 2013, she came across polyamory online. It means having loving relationships with more than one person.

Nervous, she broached it with Dan, but he actually thought it was a great idea. “He told me his goal in life was to make me happy,” Holly says.

She joined a dating website, writing honestly about her circumstances, and was soon bombarded with messages.

One guy stood out. Will had been in an open marriage for 20 years.

Holly says: “I worried Dan would be jealous, but he was so supportive. Before my first date with Will, I gave Dan a twirl and asked him I looked. And when Will and I split after six months, Dan held me as I cried, promised me I’d find someone else.”

He was right, because in January this year, Holly started dating Tom Harryman, 40.

He’d never been with anyone polyamorous before, but a few weeks into their relationship, Holly took him home to meet her husband.

“As the three of us chatted, Dan turned to me and whispered, ‘I have a good feeling about this one,’” Holly recalls. Soon after, Tom stayed over.

He admitted it felt weird, knowing her husband was just down the hall, but it didn’t put him off. Realising it was love, Holly began to split her time equally between Dan and Tom - and last month Holly asked Dan if Tom could move in.

Her husband happily agreed and the trio became housemates on June 1.

“We decided to each have our own room and, when I want to, I invite one of them to sleep over,” Holly explains. “To make sure I don’t neglect either of them, we have a schedule.

“Some nights I’ll go out with Tom, others with Dan. Two nights a week we all play competitive pub trivia.

“The three of us hang out together too, eating dinner or curling up on the sofa in front of a film.” Occasionally they’ll all go to an exhibition or event.

“I’m not shy about holding both of their hands when we’re out in public,” Holly adds.

“Course we get a few funny looks but I don’t care. I’ll happily give Tom a kiss in front of Dan, and visa versa.” But are there any arguments over the bathroom?

“My house has three and a half bathrooms, so no fights,” Holly smiles. “They each have a basket of personal items in the master bathroom so they don't have to go searching for things when they have a sleepover.

“Personal space hasn't been a problem either, since everyone has their own bedroom and another private area somewhere in the house to retreat to, if needed.

"Dan has his office in a basement room, I have a craft desk on the main floor, and Tom has a painting desk in the basement common area.

"So we can shut our bedroom doors, or go hide in another part of the house if alone time is required.”

All their friends and family are fully supportive, and the trio couldn’t be happier with their little family.

“Of course, having two relationships instead of one can be an emotional rollercoaster!” Holly says. “I’ve got two people’s needs to deal with.

"But I feel lucky at the same time. I have two wonderful men, both who treat me like a princess!”

Living and How to lead when your competition is beating you



Back in my days when I was starting my website there was that point 
where I was pushing to do my best on the web links page of my website.
Also on other parts of my site also. Back then web links where hard
to find so I did research, I would go to the Borders bookstore
with a note pad and look at all the British car mags and others writing down
the links that they had in there. I did that also to find something I never thought
of link wise or a new project for me to work on. The point is I took the effort 
to keep my website ahead of some others... Somewhat ahead my site kept
going on being that the main part the site was the web links being the site started 
only for the other pages to follow later. The links where based for something
for business people to use. So the links and most of my site was on a all on 
one page set up on a off line set up and also set up like a phone book.
And other parts where something from my college years a term paper 
here and there relating to some links on my page and others.
http://www.angelfire.com/bug/dugbuglas2/WHATIS.html

It was just hard work over time really not in view of any king of real 
competition just love! But for those pushing to be the "Best on top"
you need to think of what you are going to be on top of? 
It's best to be real in the first place.

Accepting that it did happen whatever it might be is a point to note as
it also relates. When I was a kid I was ridding my bike going to the 
swimming pool with my swimsuit on. I didn't know that a button
was not buttoned and as I was riding by pecker was out and there 
was a few people honking at me but most never even noticed but heard 
about it latter. Those things happen to everyone but damn if only I knew
and so I didn't know! What could I do and so the point, it's ok I just went
with it without knowing I did! Such is life!

~~~~~How to lead when your competition is beating you
Lyft CEO John Zimmer admits that a few years back he got depressed when he realized that Uber had 30 times more cash than his company.

"I didn't know what to do ... I got overwhelmed with the things I couldn't control," Zimmer told CNN's Laurie Segall. During that period, he said, he was "slow to lead."

Zimmer eventually came out of his funk. And Lyft not only survived, it filed plans just last week to go public.

But Zimmer's experience of feeling defeated at a critical stage is far more common than a lot of CEOs are willing to admit.

Whether your competitor gets more funding, captures bigger market share or nabs a choice client, here's what you can do to ensure the success of your own company long-term:
Get right with yourself

Make it a priority to take care of yourself physically and mentally, especially if you are depressed or anxious in the wake of what you perceive to be a defeat.

"Have daily practices that center you," said Peter Bregman, who founded the leadership advisory firm Bregman Partners.

For instance, meditating even for a few minutes in the morning and the afternoon can give you a chance to reset yourself, much the way sleep can, Bregman said.

Reach out to your competitor
In cases where you were directly competing for something (e.g., a big client), consider offering your congratulations to the competitor who won out.

"There is no downside to it," Bregman said. If anything, you distinguish yourself and you plant the seeds for a relationship, which can bear fruit down the line.

Put things in perspective
Setbacks happen, but they're temporary.
And success is never an all-or-nothing proposition.
Stay focused. If you spend the entire time looking left and right when you swim, you'll lose."

JERRY COLONNA, EXECUTIVE COACH AND CO-FOUNDER OF REBOOT

"There's always room for more than one [successful company] in every market," said Dana Severson, cofounder of Startups Anonymous, a platform for founders to confidentially share their stories and challenges.

Also, just because a competing firm gets a big round of funding doesn't mean there won't be enough for you. "There is so much money out there if your idea is good enough," Bregman said.

Be realistic about what your competition just 'won'

Keep in mind, more funding doesn't guarantee success.

"People often think funding is a victory in and of itself," said Severson, who's founded other startups, including gourmet beef jerky seller Stick in a Box.

What's more, big funding brings big expectations and demands. It may even mean your competitor will need to take on a different kind of client than you'd like, he said.

And while more money means the other company can spend more than you on marketing and hiring, "that doesn't mean those are necessarily good business decisions," said executive coach Jerry Colonna, a founder of Reboot, which provides counseling and boot camps for CEOs, founders and venture capitalists.

Remember, too, Colonna added, companies that gain "first mover advantage" don't necessarily succeed long-term (see Myspace, GeoCities and AOL).

Swim in your own lane
The best thing you can do for your company — and your sanity — is to pay attention to what you can control.

"Stay focused. If you spend the entire time looking left and right when you swim, you'll lose," Colonna said.

Especially focus on the quality of your own work. What does your company offer that distinguishes it from others in the industry? And what can you learn from your competitor to make improvements?
Once you're clear on answers to those questions, and have gotten some perspective on your current situation, you'll be better positioned to motivate and encourage your employees for the challenges ahead.

Me getting hit by a car on a moped



Keep that in mind, I got hit by a car doing 45 mph with me on a moped
and made it! So I may not take things people think as serious, seriously!
It's not serious to me! Life is too short really to be serious!

Back in 1985 I got hit by a car on my moped. I was stopped in the street making
a left turn when a car doing around 45 mph going down the road didn't see me
because he had something on his dashboard blocking his view.
He hit me the bike went forward and I glided with the car grabbing
hold of the hood hanging on until he stopped hard and I couldn't hang on no
more andvI hit the road and skidded with the car holding on to the air dam 
to not go under the car. All that happened to me in the end was I bruised my kidney 
so I turned yellow and I pulled all the ligaments in one leg because my leg got pulled 
up too fast as I went over the hood of the car. It took me months to walk again.

Yes I got hit by a car with me on a moped and survived.
Not as bad but like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Had20POo6ZA

I also almost got hit by a love in a car I begged her to come back as it was like
being hit by cupid. I also had a cursed car before!

~~~~~Mopeds and Scooters: Crash Outcomes in a High Traffic State
Abstract
Background
Moped and scooter crash outcomes in the United States were last reported over 20 years ago. These vehicles have experienced resurgence in popularity with sales that have increased up to 60% in recent years. The purpose of this study is to identify risk factors between severe and non-severe driver related injuries and to identify modifiable risk factors.

Methods
The Florida Traffic Crash Records Database (FTCRD) was used to identify all crashes involving mopeds and scooters occurring between 2002 and 2008. A total of 5,660 moped crashes were evaluated. Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine the strength of association of severe injury for each risk factor.

Results
Over 90% of drivers involved in moped or scooter crashes were uninsured. Only 17% of all drivers wore helmets. Alcohol and drug use was a significant risk factor severe and lethal crashes OR 2.09, 95% CI (1.64, 2.66). Risk factors amenable for state intervention and associated with increased severe or lethal injury were unpaved roads OR 1.57, 95% CI (1.30, 1.88); driving speeds > 20 mph OR 2.02, 95% CI (1.73, 2.36); posted speed limits >30 mph OR 1.40, 95% CI (1.22, 1.62); major roadways with 4 or more lanes OR 1.83, 95% CI (1.04, 3.21); and poor lighting conditions OR 1.69, 95% CI (1.23, 2.32).

Conclusions
These results suggest that most of the traffic infrastructure does not accommodate the safety of moped and scooter drivers. Focused interventions and further investigation into statewide traffic rules may improve moped crash outcomes.

Open Relationship like Therapy



Being open and having that talk is like opening a door you are trapped in.
A open marriage is open. So to have that talk is just to be open on
who is who to who and why!

"Open relationship is the umbrella category,” explains Dr. Sheff. “There are different types of open relationships like swinging, monogamish, polyamory, relationship anarchy, and then just open — people sometimes choose to identify that way.”

But the point is about healing, supporting, making better. 
A lover making the other a better person a stable foundation. 
To do better than not! Like a Cicisbeo in the 21st century to protect
her from society or society from her. It's ok! Anyway you see it, it's for the better!

It's just common sense wanting better for you or your partner a time for growth
before you hit 70! A point of spirituality and Respect for all and for what is 
best for the babies!

A open marriage is therapy to make each other a better person!

~~~~~Your Complete Guide to an Open Relationship
1. Get familiar with what’s on the menu.

“Open relationship is the umbrella category,” explains Dr. Sheff. “There are different types of open relationships like swinging, monogamish, polyamory, relationship anarchy, and then just open — people sometimes choose to identify that way.”

“There’s so many different configurations,” adds Watson. “There can be a V where one person has two partners and those two partners aren’t related, there can be a triangle where one person has two partners and those two partners mess around too, and then there can be all sorts of tree of life looking branches from different people.”

In order to learn more, Dr. Sheff recommends finding people in different types of relationships and asking them about it. Here’s how: On internet communities such as meetup.com, use search terms such as “polyamory,” “sex positive,” and “open relationship” to find couples, get in touch, and ask any questions you might have.

2. Decide what you want.

After you talk to people in different types of open relationships, “see which one appeals to you,” Dr. Sheff advises. “If you have a partner already, discuss it in depth with your partner.”

Watson agrees: “Know what you are and are not comfortable with. In terms of opening up your relationship, do you just want to have sexual relationships? Do you want to have a boyfriend? Do you want to have another long-term relationship? Are you comfortable with your partner coming over to your house? Are you comfortable with other partners having sex in your bed? Are you comfortable with your partner having sex with other partners? Are you comfortable with your partner’s other partners having sex in your bed? Get really familiar with what feels good to you and what you’re not comfortable with.”

3. Make sure you’re in it for the right reasons.

“If you’re opening up your relationship to fix the issues in your current relationship, that’s not going to work,” warns Watson. “You need to work on the issues in your current relationship and not expect your new relationship to just change that.”

4. Establish guidelines with your partner.

Once you know your boundaries and feel confident in your motivation behind wanting to open up your relationship, Courtney advises you and your partner “sit down and write down what you want and what you are planning to do.”

“I have couples write three lists of something they absolutely must have in a relationship; something they would like, but are willing to flex on; and something they absolutely will not allow in a relationship,” explains Dr. Sheff. “So it’s three columns of your boundaries and where they fall. Each person does that independently, and then come back and compare lists just to give yourself a baseline of, What do I want?” Within the list, she suggests you address questions like, What kind of safe sex will we practice? What happens if someone gets pregnant? What about living with other people?

Once you’ve filled out your three columns, exchange them with your partner and see how much your values align. “If your partner has — in the Absolutely Not column — ‘Never ever have sex with other people,’ and you have in the Must Have column, ‘Must have sex with other people,’ that’s going to be a serious problem.” It’s vital that the two of you are on the same page about what you’re getting into.

5. While making your guidelines, leave other people out of it.

“If people think about them a lot and make all sorts of plans about how it’s going to be and how other people will or will not react, that’s a recipe for disaster because you can’t make rules for people and how they’re going to feel,” explains Dr. Sheff. “But couples try that all the time — couples who are already together and opening their relationship often will think a lot about it beforehand and will decide ‘This is what’s going to be okay for secondaries and what’s not.’”

“You can’t expect someone to follow an agreement that they never agreed to and never had a hand in negotiating,” she continues. “It’s not fair. Most importantly, you don’t have their buy in. There’s no reason why they should follow it. That’s a common mistake from couples.”

6. Remember the guidelines aren’t a rule book.

“Realize that people’s boundaries change,” advises Dr. Sheff. “They think it’s gonna be one thing. And then they get started and it’s something else. You are not carving these in stone. This is the beginning of the discussion. Don’t use this list as a way to badger your partner.”

“It can be a document that evolves as you get more into opening your relationship and understanding what fits and what doesn’t fit,” adds Watson. “It should be a document that you regularly revise, but it’s helpful to write it down so that people don’t get confused.”

7. Hone your communication skills.

“Open relationships will tank if there’s no communication line,” warns Watson. “You’re dealing with so many different parts, pieces, and people, you need to be able to talk really openly about what your boundaries are and your wishes and desires.”

“Expect to put effort into communication,” adds Dr. Sheff. “Develop it as a skill. Take it seriously enough that you’ll learn how to communicate well. That’s key for these relationships because, without communication, you can’t talk about how you’re feeling and if you can’t talk about how you’re feeling often those feelings become a booby trap. If you just act out of jealousy instead of communicating, that just creates a lot of drama and pain for everyone.”

8. Make a calendar to stay organized.

“Just have a calendar that you can reference,” suggests Watson. “You can share your calendar digitally with your different partners or one or two partners — however you want to do it. The more organized you can be about it, the better because the less opportunity there is for hurt feelings and misunderstanding.”

9. Don’t expect it to be easy.

“Expect it to be a bit of a challenge,” advises Dr. Sheff. “I think, at heart, most people would like to have their own harem of completely devoted people they don’t have to share with anyone, but they get sexual variety. And most of us know it’s not okay. It’s reasonable to ask for that, but it’s also reasonable to give that same openness to your partner. That is the harder part.”

While pursuing your own relationships is great, Dr. Sheff warns, “It can be really challenging to allow your partner that same leeway. So be prepared for that, be ready to talk about it, be ready to own up to it. And that it doesn’t mean, ‘Oh, that was a failure, now we have to stop, this was a disaster. Oh no!’ You can say, ‘Oh, there it is. We kind of expected this. Here it goes — how are we gonna handle this?’”

10. Seek out help if you need it.

“Know sex therapy is always an option for you and all of your partners when you hit rough patches,” Watson says. “I’m a sex therapist and I will see as many partners as want to come in. We can work together to figure out what’s going on.”

There are also people like Dr. Sheff who provide relationship coaching for people trying open relationships and advise them on how to do it. For people who feel differently about non-monogamy than their partner, they help come up with solutions. Dr. Sheff says there is great advice and supportive information online, especially in polyamorous communities.

Low-wage work really is a dead end

There is a good point to know about Dead End Jobs and how
in small towns not being able to do better.
It's a mix of the good old boys system, corruption, fighting wage growth
in that the wages are much the same where ever you go.
A manager job at the Denny's restaurant was the same pay as a Walmart worker.
A QuikTrip Store clerk was the same pay as a new Teachers job.
Years ago Georgia Pacific would hire people but found anyway to fire them
before 6 months so they didn't have to pay benefits. So the workers caught
on to it and planed to work there for a short time. And so many other places
where like that also and the workers acted like it's a temp job.

My past girlfriend working at Walmart tried to move up to a department manager 
position but as expected she didn't get the job. No one there really got
anything. Your not able to do better! All of this is small town corruption and
so is common. Many in small towns spent their life at their dead end job only to
retire at it. Minimum wage retirement is common in small towns.
People walking with no cars. And I am saying walking like 10 miles all
over town. Or riding a bike, etc the same. Living with no AC or heat to save money.
Hyper mile their car to save on gas. As many are broke the first week of the month 
looking confused about others talking about shopping online? 
"I only have $20 in the bank how??????" Too broke to shop on-line!

Just a big mess of crap overall added to issues in the changing job skills that 
will be needed with no foundation for it. How are you to do better when you
are holding your breath running a marathon? Change is needed!

And so for the workers to know otherwise they don't know then wonder what
is slapping their ass? Not to be unaware thinking it happens for 
no reason just out of the blue. Life runs over you so it's best to be aware!
There is a need to be brought up sometime keep a eye ahead to be ahead!

Bigger cities have more resources for learning. Noted why they say your 
education is only worth their paper it's printed on.
There might that time to migrate to a better environment.

~~~~~For millions, low-wage work really is a dead end
The U.S. economy is booming, unemployment is at a 17-year low and wages appear to be picking up. So what's not to like?

If you're one of the approximately 65 million Americans in low-paid service jobs, getting a share of that economic prosperity may be unbearably difficult. Jobs may be plentiful, but finding one that pays better than your current gig is much more rare than commonly believed, according to new research paper from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

"If you start in one of those low-wage occupations, you have a higher probability of becoming unemployed than moving up the career ladder," said Todd Gabe, a co-author of the paper, titled "Can Low-Wage Workers Get Better Jobs?" 

The answer seems to be, "With extreme difficulty." 

The authors looked at 175,000 workers in so-called low-quality jobs -- with low pay, unpredictable scheduling and few or no benefits -- and examined how those people's jobs changed over a six-year period ending in 2017. Of this group, only 5.2 percent were in a higher-paying job one year later, the authors found. By contrast, more than 10 percent left the workforce and 6.7 percent became unemployed. 

In other words, a low-wage worker was three times more likely to stop working altogether than to move to a better job in a given year.

Among those who did move from low-wage to higher-wage work, some common threads appeared. Typical jobs they upgraded to included work as nursing aides, customer service representatives, administrative assistants or wholesale and manufacturing sales. None of the "better" jobs typical for workers leaving low-wage work were in production, the paper notes.

The single most common "better" job that low-wage workers moved into was truck driving. About one in 300 made this move. That's in line with other research that has found some kind of truck driving a common "opportunity job," paying around the national average and accessible to people without college degrees. Other opportunity jobs included clerks, automotive technicians and repair workers.

Those who had a four-year college degree and were younger were also more likely to move into higher-paid work than their peers. "Don't underestimate the value of getting an education," Gabe said.

These findings directly contradict the rosy discussion of today's job market. Those who favor minimal regulation and oppose raising wages for service jobs often say such jobs are short-term and entry-level, providing workers with a first step on the ladder up job mobility. 

The New York Fed study's authors say, "If low-wage jobs are simply a stepping stone to higher-quality jobs, then the problem of low-wage work can be solved via the labor market." But, they added, "If, on the other hand, people tend to get trapped in low-wage jobs that are difficult to escape, then some more proactive policies may be warranted."  

However, proactive policies don't seem to be coming. Instead, public policy is pushing more people into the workforce while rescinding many protections working people have previously enjoyed.

Still, the role of low-paid work in the U.S. is important. Nine years after the Great Recession began, the largest and fastest-growing sector of the economy is in low-paid, "service class" jobs. 

Labor advocates and some academics have argued that rolling back economic polarization requires upgrading the jobs at the very bottom. As Richard Florida, a co-author of the New York Fed paper, said in another paper he co-wrote: "The only way to create a large number of family-supporting jobs that will rebuild the middle class is by upgrading the millions of precarious, low-skill, and low-wage service class jobs we already have."

Hamburger Meat

Such is a point of life being all dressed up to be in a corn field.
What? Well if your Dillard's is closing in your small town that has nothing
because they make nothing the question pops up why was it there in the 
first place? And so why dress up? Why not get out and show your 
"Hamburger Meat!" 

~~~~~Hamburger meat
Regional to shore areas of South Jersey, some residents (late teens to early thirties) often use "hamburger meat" as a euphemism for chest hair. Hamburger meat is an especially prominent feature of French Canadian tourists, as are speedos. Hamburger meat is also used to point out when a man has obviously taken great lengths to display his man mane, i.e. - unbuttoning polo style shirt completely, and flattening the collar to maximize fluff effect.
Ex. 1 
Worker 1 - Damn, dude..... Did you see that guy that just left the hotel lobby? 
Worker 2 - Yeah, he had his hamburger meat hangin out over his grape smugglers. 
Ex. 2 
Hotel guest 1 - I won't be coming back here. The dirty worker guy keeps leering at my wife... 
Hotel guest 2 - Yeah, he struts around the pool trying to impress everyone with his hamburger meat.

Lucky Ladybug

To love you need best interest in mind as love is to bring all up.
Luck and love are higher things to make all better and so is the
question, why suffer? It's not about the pursuit of UN-happiness.
It's about the pursuit of things that are better making all lives better!

Sifl and Olly season 2 ep 34 with the lucky ladybug?



~~~~~Ladybug Symbolism
Ladybug SymbolismLadybug symbolism is all about good luck around the globe. There seems to be some confusion to the name. Is it ladybug or ladybird?

In Europe the term ladybird is most common. In the United States more people use the word ladybug instead of the ladybird.

Lucky Ladybug: Superstition
If a ladybug lands on you, be careful not to brush it off. Stay very still and count the spots. The number of spots will reveal the number of months you will enjoy good luck.

The stronger the color red is on the ladybug, the better your luck will be.

Others believe you get to make a wish if a ladybug lands on your hand. The number of spots will be equivalent to the number of months (some say years) before your wish comes true.

Ladybugs as a symbol of protection
During the Middle Ages it was common belief that the ladybug symbolized protection.

Stories were told about farmers who were desperate because aphids were ruining their crops. The farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help.

The Virgin Mary responded to their distressed situation and sent thousands of ladybugs to annihilate the aphids, thus saving their crop.

The ladybird has been and still is used as a talisman for safety and protection against all harm.

As a symbol of keeping the person wearing images of ladybugs safe and healthy we can see why ladybugs on baby and child clothing is consistently popular.

Knowing the ladybug symbolism also includes love, joy and prosperity, any person would happily give gifts with ladybug images on them.

Ladybug Symbolism: Love
Common folk belief tells that if a ladybug/ladybird crawls over an unwed woman’s hand, she will be married within a year.

lucky ladybugThis lady-fly I take from the grass

Whose spotted back might scarlet red surpass?

Fly, lady-bird; north, south, or east or west

Fly where the man is found that I love best.

John Gay, The Shepherd’s Week –  1714

Ladybug Symbolism and the Newborn Baby
As mentioned earlier ladybugs bring security and good fortune, but there is still another reason why babies should have something containing ladybug symbolism.

Ladybugs are considered very lucky for babies
It is said ladybugs showers the baby with auspicious blessings.

In Italy the ladybug has been given the nickname “commaruccia” which translates “little midwives”.

The ladybug symbolism of abundant blessings has led to ladybugs being ever popular on all clothing and all kinds of other stuff for children and adults alike.

Ladybugs as a symbol of self-reliance
All though the ladybugs may be tiny creatures, they are well capable of protecting themselves from larger predators.

When the ladybug is endangered it will release a ghastly scent which the predator will find so repulsive it will go elsewhere to find its next meal.

After observing this kind of action, people have said that the ladybug is a good example and a symbol of self-reliance no matter how small a creature is.

Ladybug and the Virgin Mary
It has long been claimed in folklore that the ladybug was a favorite to the Virgin Mary. This little create has been associated with Mary, mother of Jesus for centuries.  

Some say the seven spots on ladybugs represent the Seven Sorrows of Mary; others say they represent the Seven Joys of Mary.

Social economics and children uninsured poor foundation

If you make nothing you have nothing and as it's like quick sand
being no man is a island we all rely on each other if they go down so do all.
Correcting for inflation your pays buying power is from the 1950's!
And so if you make nothing there will be nothing around you! And nothing helps no one!
As the many can't afford it so why have it? Healthcare is needed but if you can't
afford to use it why have it. Small towns are small for a reason. 
The low pay keeps it low! And so how is the town to be brought up if the town is down?

Low pay is low everything! Risk is growth and stagnation is death. Also if there is nothing there is no growth even worse by working their life at their dead end job and retiring at it common in small towns. Small towns have a lot of minimum wage retirees. This reflects to the quality of life in small towns for the people. With no foundation for needed higher job skills with people that walk with no cars or live with no heat or AC is bad for the labor force. If they can't take care of themselves then how are they to take care of the workplace. So what are you going to get... Many bad things for all showing a need for better pay!

~~~~~Cities have moods, according to new research, and when a city's mood is on 
the upswing, the city's inhabitants tend to take more risks.

~~~~~Of course, people live longer and have healthier lives in rich countries. With only a few (and usually scandalous) exceptions, water is safe to drink, food is safe to eat, sanitation is universal, and some sort of medical care is available to everyone. Yet all these essentials of health are more likely to be lacking for poorer Americans. Even for the whole population, life expectancy in the United States is lower than we would expect given its national income, and there are places — the Mississippi Delta and much of Appalachia — where life expectancy is lower than in Bangladesh and Vietnam.

Beyond that, many Americans, especially whites with no more than a high school education, have seen worsening health: As my research with my wife, the Princeton economist Anne Case, has demonstrated, for this group life expectancy is falling; mortality rates from drugs, alcohol and suicide are rising; and the long historical decline in mortality from heart disease has come to a halt.

If there are many adults making children wages then the children are less than children because the adults make the children wages not the children. And there is a need to change that because children don't pay rent, food, the bills and healthcare. So what are they going to have?
Not a lot! 

~~~~~Oklahoma Ranks Near The Bottom In Child Health Insurance Rate
Georgetown researchers examined newly released U.S. Census data and found that three-quarters of children nationwide who lost health insurance coverage live in states like Oklahoma that have not expanded Medicaid to parents or other low-income adults.

Oklahoma already has the second-highest uninsured rate in the country — more than 14 percent of adults in Oklahoma don’t have health insurance.

If Oklahoma’s application for a Medicaid waiver to impose a work requirement on very low-income adults, including parents who receive health coverage through Medicaid, is approved, Alker expects the child uninsured health rate also to increase.

Under the proposal, able-bodied adult beneficiaries would have to document that they are working at least 20 hours a week or participating in job-training or volunteer activities to maintain their SoonerCare coverage.

If it’s approved, Oklahoma would be the only non-expansion state to have work requirements.

~~~~~Oklahoma’s progress on child uninsured rate has stalled
All children should be able to see a doctor or fill a prescription when they need to. After all, access to quality health care in childhood makes it more likely that a person will succeed and thrive throughout their life. But in Oklahoma, children are less likely to have access to health care than their peers in most other states. New analysis of Census Bureau data shows that after years of steady declines in the child uninsured rate, progress in Oklahoma has stalled: for the last three years, the child uninsured rate has hovered at around 8 percent. In 2017, that gave us the fourth-highest share of children without health insurance in the US, working out to 82,000 children uninsured. That’s enough to nearly fill OU’s Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium (capacity: 86,112). 

This is bad news for Oklahoma – but fortunately, Oklahoma has the opportunity to remedy the problem. Bringing access to quality, affordable health care to our children will protect their health, position them to seize the opportunities offered in school and at work, and set Oklahoma on the path to being a better, stronger state.
