The VW beetle bug car is a classic for almost all ages of drivers. Earlier this year, Volkswagen introduced the newest generation of this marvelous little car in the form of a new coupe. Immediately prior to the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2012, they unveiled and launched their new 2013 version of the beetle bug CONVERTIBLE.
Journalist ALAN GELL was among those who were invited to the launch and during the test drive route, Alan stopped to interview ANDRES VALBUENA. Andres is the Product Manager for the VW Beetle and discussed it during this interview.
More people are moving out of New Jersey than are moving in. The same is true for Illinois and New York. Those three states top the “outbound” list compiled by United Van Lines, the big St. Louis-based moving company that has put together an annual survey of where Americans are moving for the last 37 years. The company analyzed a total of 125,000 moves across the 48 continental states and the District of Columbia in 2013 and came up with a picture of migration patterns across the U.S. According to Professor Michael Stoll, chair of the Department of Public Policy at the UNOC, and a consultant to United Van Lines who studies American migration, the moves reflect long-term shifts in the U.S. economy and the hit to employment in many states resulting from the slow recovery.
Of the top nine states where more people moved out than moved in, four are in the Northeast: In addition to New Jersey and New York, Connecticut (No. 5) and Massachusetts (No. 8) make the list. The list also reflects Americans’ desire to leave the frigid states in the north for warmer climes. “Over the last 20-30 years there has been a general shift of the population from the Midwest and Northeast to the South and West, which we think of as a move from the frost belt to the sun belt,” says Stoll. New Jersey has been stuck at the top of the outbound list for three of the past four years. Some 64% more people moved out than moved in. According to Stoll, Great Recession hit the state especially hard, accelerating a longtime shift of manufacturing to the southern states, away from the Northeast. “New Jersey has been reliant for many decades on manufacturing and industry.

Florida Makes Off-Grid Living Illegal – Mandates All Homes Must Be Connected To An Electricity Grid
It’s no secret that an opposition to sustainable living exists. Earlier this year, Texas state brought several SWAT teams to a sustainable community and threatened to shut it down. Each one of the community members were initially handcuffed at gunpoint. It was called “The Garden of Eden Community,” and was totally self sustainable. “It means living independently, mainly living independently of the utility companies. Providing your own power. It does not mean living in the stone age, it’s not about bush craft. It’s about generating your own power, your own water, dealing with your own waste. Probably as part of a community, not living on your own like a hermit. It’s also about being more self-reliant and being less dependent on the system. Perhaps realizing that the system isn’t really protecting us anymore and we have to look after ourselves.”
The human race does not need to be dependent on these corporations. While we continue to feed this dependency, the planet continues to suffer. In order to move forward, we must start cooperating with each other, and realize just how much potential we have to create something magical and amazing. Bottom line, anybody who has the desire to live off-grid should not be hassled for it, it should be a free choice.

Special guests: Fiona Roberts, HR Director, Volkswagen Group UK and Julie Stayte, HR Director, Volkswagen Financial Services UK.
One in five new cars sold in the UK come from Volkswagen Group UK, which manages five brands: Volkswagen, Audi, ŠKODA, SEAT and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS) provides finance and insurance services to customers across the entire Volkswagen Group in the United Kingdom. Although both companies have distinctive cultures they share a commitment to employee engagement recognised by their Great Places to Work accreditations and have each adapted their German parent companies’ approach to employee consultation and made it relevant to the UK workplace.
Join Julie and Fiona as they talk about the exciting ways they are giving employees across the two businesses a genuine voice with their approach to consultation and collaboration called co-determination.

What is Civil Society’s response to the alleged impending disbandment of the Firearm Tactical and Training Unit? How do they really feel about the assumptions of the much talked about Leahy Act? We will hear from Dennis Meadows, Co-Convenor of Citizens’ Action for Principle and Integrity (CAPI) and Rodje Malcolm, a director for Jamaicans for Justice (JFJ).
Then at 5:30pm, we have the indomitable Fae Ellington in our Talk Vault segment. We also have in perspective and the week that was, Talk Jamaica is live at 4pm http://talkjamaicaradio.com/listen.php
Last year the world kind of forgot about Europe. After ECB head Mario Draghi vowed to “do whatever it takes” to get the Continent growing, the markets calmed down, money got cheap and plentiful and functionally-bankrupt countries like Greece, Italy and Spain stopped making scary headlines. To the casual observer it began to look like the euro project might actually succeed.
Then the mirage evaporated. Five years into a recovery that should, if it followed the normal script, be in danger of overheating, the major eurozone countries are actually slipping back into recession. Germany and Italy clocked in with -0.2% GDP growth in the second quarter, while France was exactly zero. For countries that continue to pile new debt on top of already unsustainable mountains of old debt, zero growth isn’t stasis, it’s death. And the media is starting to catch on. The following headlines appeared in the DollarCollapse.com breaking news links list in just the past two days:
