Highways Made Of Solar Cells Could Be In Our Future

Florida Residents Given Capes to Fight Unemployment

A government-supported unemployment agency in Central Florida is in hot water today after it reportedly spent $14,200 to fund 6,000 superhero capes to hand out to unemployed area residents.

It's all part of what's being called the 'Cape- A-Bility Challenge,' a contest in which out-of-work Floridians take on "Dr. Evil Unemployment," a cartoon character that represents the current state of the economy. (The agency also spent $2,300 on foam cutouts of this job-killing super villain.)

Once they enter the contest, they will be provided with a red cape -- while supplies last, of course. The campaign, which some are calling "insensitive and wasteful," runs through June 30.

Foreclosure Problem In America – New Housing Problem?

I am so outraged that the common hardworking families are being tossed out of their houses or forced to leave because of SOME banks. More and more people lose their jobs and can't afford to keep their homes.

Yet, bank execs are keeping their jobs even though this is a well known practice. When I bought my home I had to have 80,000 forms of proof to be approved for the loan. I feel there needs to be tougher laws against the people committing  these crimes. They are destroying peoples lives and getting bonus checks for doing it.
