Hat brand Kangol returns jobs to U.S. but is struggling
"When the famous hat brand worn by celebrities like Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt and Gwen Stefani moved into a Pennsylvania factory last year from China, executives with the Bollman Hat Co. billed it as an effort to create U.S. manufacturing jobs.
But as labor costs went up, profits went down. Way down. The 149-year-old company behind Kangol says it's losing money on every kangaroo-logo cap knitted at its factory in Adamstown, 60 miles west of Philadelphia.

Employment is down 85 per cent since 1990 - the biggest decline of any manufacturing sector - as cost-cutting apparel companies shifted production to Asia in search of cheaper labor. Bollman spends about $11 an hour per worker in Pennsylvania vs. $2.60 in China."

Many countries in the EU have adopted policies which deny medical care for newborn infants under specific weight, and/or under specific number of weeks gestation. They do this for two reasons, first to save money, and second to inflate their infant mortality statistics.
Meanwhile, the religion of peace, love, and understanding murders 80 with truck bomb in Kabul near US and UK embassies . . .

. . . with 350 wounded. These people are out of control. There is absolutely no rational reason to allow people from these countries to visit, or emigrate until this problem is brought under control. Last thing any country needs is to allow entry to lunatic religious zealots bent on mass murder.
Teacher Mary Kay Letourneau, 55, who was jailed for sex with TWELVE-year-old pupil is getting divorced from him
Mary Kay first raped Vili when he was only 12, in the end they had two children together both before Vili was 15. Yes, that means she serially raped him was discovered, arrested, convicted, served 6 months (delivered his first child), then raped him again was arrested, convicted (delivered his second child), served more time, married him, and raised the two children.
Now 20 years on, their children have grown and are no longer dependent, so he wants a separation from this train wreck of a woman. This seems mature, and he is only 33, so, he can begin again, after a divorce. This time as an adult.
Act III: "Vili Fualaau, 33, filed an official request for a legal separation from 55-year-old Mary Kay Letourneau on May 9, court records show.

Fualaau, now working at a home and garden centre, said in his application that the couple's two daughters are no longer dependent on them.
He asked the court for a fair division of the couple's joint assets."

Gordon Ramsay explains why he won't let his children sit with him in First Class while travelling
I use my kids to get me an upgrade to first class. Maddog story at the link below.
Traveling with children is always a blast
Ok, I agree that the kids haven't work long enough, or hard enough to get the luxurious perk like first class air flights, and treating them to these things is not a positive. Kids need to learn how difficult it is to earn the money necessary to pay for these things before they are set loose to buy them. Otherwise one might have to keep them like the lepidopterist keeps butterflies in a box with a pin holding them to a board. I would rather have children who are independent, not dependent.
