    in Entertainment

    The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 32 percent of fathers with a working wife regularly care for their children younger than 15, according to data collected in spring 2010. That is up from 26 percent in 2002.


    When comparing households with working mothers in different regions, the Midwest — with 33 percent — had the highest percentage of fathers serving as primary caregivers for preschool-aged children, according to the census. The South had the lowest with 24 percent.

    I was just thinking...Is your city dying? Detroit the example...and why?

    in Politics

    Detroit a portrate of a dying city being resucitated for gentrification.


    In the 1950's, Detroit was considered the Paris of the west in regards to architecture. Entrepreneurs had an immense amount of wealth giving Detroit unique and magnificent building structures.


    What is happening presently to Detroit is precisely what is happening to America. Jobs are disappearing, and the middle class is being systematically destroyed. Less than half of the residents of Detroit over the age of 16 are working at this point. 2010, the city had a population of 713,777, more than a 60 percent drop from a peak population of over 1.8 million at the 1950 census.


    What it will be is called “Trickle-Down Urbanism,” or the process of displacing and relocating residents from urban neighborhoods that have been targeted for new investment and resources.


    Can and is this happening in your town?

    Voting rates by race prove diversity will never loose Presidential elections

    in Politics

    According to the US Census, "In 2012, the overall voting rate was 61.8%." "Overall, in the last five Presidential elections, the non-Hispanic White share of total votes cast dropped by about 9 percentage points.  In comparison, between 1996 and 2012, the Hispanic share of total votes cast increased by about 4%, while the Black share increased by about 3%."


    The Washington Post writes, "And while Obama did loose White voters by 20 points to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (the widest losing margin for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1984) he still won a clear popular vote victory - with a majority of his total vote nationwide coming from White voters."  How about that folks.  The majority of people who voted for President Obama were White!  Let's go!

    Live:How do Men Feel, Women wearing the Pants More Educated & Making More Money

    Live:How do Men Feel, Women wearing the Pants More Educated & Making More Money


    this year noted a surge in women between the ages of 30 and 44 making more money than their husbands.Women made more money than men in 22 percent of married couples surveyed in 2007, compared with 4 percent in 1970. While men make more money overall and hold more management positions, women are making greater gains.


    "The supply of men has changed," said D'Vera Cohn, senior writer at the Pew Research Center's Social and Demographic Trends project. "The pool of college educated men isn't growing as rapidly as it is for women."


    There is also a gender shift in the realm of education. Women represent nearly 60 percent of students holding advanced degrees in areas such as medicine, law, business and graduate programs, the U.S. Census reported in April.Researchers have found educational attainment to be a higher priority among couples than ever. Popular online dating sites Match.com and eHarmony report that romances happen occasionally between educated, professional women and men who are less educated or have a lower salary.


    Leah MacIsaac-Ruff, 45, works 11-hour-plus-days as a technology vice president at a Wall Street firm. She has a college degree. So does her husband, Doug, 43, who walks dogs for a living.MacIsaac-Ruff may be the breadwinner, but she finds her husband's career choice refreshing.


    "If I were to marry a type-A personality and we sat on our computers side by side in the evenings, I think I'd die," she says. "I think I'd be in a cold relationship. The last thing I want is to go home to an investment banker."
