Do You Have Royal Blood? - jamesnews's Blog - Blogster

Posted 12:19 PM 10/19/2016 Do you think your family originated from the top 1 percent?

According to a new study of unique last names from around the world, moving in or out of the upper class doesn’t take just a few generations — it takes centuries.

Measuring not just income and wealth but also occupation, education, and longevity, researchers found that upper-class families took 300 to 450 years before their scions fell back into the middle class. Throughout society, poor families, taken as a whole, took an equal amount of time — 10 to 15 generations — to work their way up into the middle class.

Wednesday wisdom Lessons Learned - jamesnews's Blog - Blogster

Posted 10:35 AM 10/19/2016 We all make mistakes in our lives but how should we think about them? Research shows the more we believe we can improve after a mistake, the more we will. In our series Wisdom Wednesday, we take a look at mistakes and why they’re valuable. That’s what science says and most of the women we spoke with agree. Amy Edgar/Founder, Children’s Integrated Center for Success "Mistakes are really truly are for me a learning opportunity so when I think about mistakes I’ve made in the past the value and the meaning comes from not doing them again and then helping to inform future thinking and decision making."  Read this article here and see video

Posted 8:36 AM 10/19/2016 Senate Republicans can run from Donald Trump. But debate season is making it really tough for them to hide.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) proved the rule when, earlier this month, she said in her debate that “absolutely” Trump is a role model. She scrambled to walk that back with a TV ad. (Just in time, too. The very next day, Trump's Tape ™ came out, and the day after that, Ayotte announced that she couldn't vote for Trump anymore.)

Posted 10:59 AM 10/18/2016 John Podesta is about as thrilled to have his personal emails broadcast as you would be.

The media is deeply committed to the pretense that:

The Wikileaks documents are not just someone’s personal email being doled out by Russian intelligence forces in the service of the Trump campaign

We’re not paying enough attention to these documents (repeat this message through all available channels, at least 50 times per day, to demonstrate how it’s not getting attention)

Somewhere between the pasta recipes and inter-office gossip, if you hold the paper sideways, or read it backwards, is something Hugely Bad for Hillary Clinton.

The latest Hugely Bad thing? A supposed 'quid pro quo' deal between the State Department and FBI to get the classification altered on emails that landed in Hillary Clinton’s private server

Never Say To Black People - jamesnews's Blog - Blogster

Posted 7:10 AM 1/11/2015 Both Democratic and Republican candidates will begin announcing plans to run for president in 2016 soon, and many will engage in the typical brown-nosing for key voting blocs, especially among minorities. Black voters have consistently cast their ballots for Democratic candidates at a rate of nearly 90 percent during each election cycle, and that doesn’t look like it’s changing anytime soon. But that won’t keep Republicans from attempting to lure black voters away from the “Democratic Plantation,” as former Florida Rep. Allen West once characterized the party’s lock on African-American constituents.

Posted 9:55 AM 1/10/2015 Hillary Clinton is going to run for president. Jeb Bush is going to run for president. Rand Paul is going to run for president. At least, if you went up to a bookie in Vegas and asked the odds, you wouldn't make much profit in predicting that any of them would be on the ballot.
