UN may run out of funds by month-end, warns Guterres    


<br>With only 128 of the 193 member countries having paid their dues in full as of October 3, he has reportedly warned UN staffers that the organisation faced a shortfall of $230 million.

The UN's regular budget for the year is $5.4 billion and it is separate from the peacekeeping budget of $6.5 billion.

India paid up its $23.25 million dues for the regular budget on January 30 itself, one of the few countries to pay up on time.

If the funds don't flow in this month from more of the nations in arrears, the UN will likely continue its operations by dipping into its working capital fund temporarily.

One of the reasons for the shortfall is the US, which funds 22 per cent of the UN's regular budget amounting $674 million, not having paid up in full so far.

Because members do not send in their dues at the beginning of the year and the funds trickle in, the UN faces periodic budget crises.

The number of countries paying in full has fallen significantly this year compared to previous years.

Only 127 countries had sent in their contributions this year by the end of September compared to 141 last year.

Guterres had told the General Assembly's budget committee in May, "We are at a tipping point and what we do next will matter for years to come."

"Despite numerous efforts to contain expenditures this year, we are likely to run out of cash in August and, therefore, borrow from the Working Capital Fund," he had warned, but the UN managed to coast along till now.

Guterres wrote to member countries in July last year when its finance went into a crisis mode, "An organization such as ours should not have to suffer repeated brushes with bankruptcy."

The UN has a separate budget for peacekeeping operations, which also operates consistently in a deficit mode.

As India's Permanent Representative Syed Akbaruddin has repeatedly pointed out, this affects the countries contributing troops to UN peacekeeping operations that are owed millions to offset their expenses and salaries of the peace-keepers.

While India can absorb the delay, it can badly hurt smaller countries like Nepal and Rwanda.

Employment: According to the Washington State Employment Security Department we lost 50,540 jobs in this state in January. The Evergreen State’s unemployment rate went up to 9.7% (the U3 number, or those who are collecting unemployment benefits). That means that 338,910 folks are on the U3 roles and that includes 15,910 new claims that have been filed, SO FAR! In addition the U6 number or the TOTAL number of folks who are unemployed or marginally employed increased to 642,880 as Washington’s U6 percentage rose to a record 18.4% in January. Particularly disturbing with these numbers is the fact the 64,930 folks dropped out of the work force around the state, because most of them have given up trying to find a job. Snohomish County was hit particularly hard with a new U3 number of 10.1% or 38,090 collecting benefits and a U6 number of 69,392!

For those of you who follow my blogs you know that I have said that the indications are that Washington is in a double dip recession. This is very bad news for the State Legislature awaiting news from the Department of Revenue about to issue its revenue forecast for the remainder of the year. With this many job losses, the news is not expected to be good. That means that the 6.8 Billion dollar deficit “can” the Democrats seek to “kick down the road” over into the next fiscal year on 7/1 may end up being a lot more than that figure.

In the all important housing market here in Washington, things are bleak to say the least. The latest RealtyTrac numbers are stark. 4,981 new home foreclosures and a total of 37,207 since this recession began. That depresses not just the sale of housing but also the value or homes on the market. With a large number or ARM’s about to be re-set over the next 60 days and with even more mortgages about to go “under water”, that will impact future foreclosures amongst many who are currently in default.

In conclusion, we are lagging the rest of the country, still struggling with what is being referred to as a “modest recovery”. Many analysts conclude that the three states on the West Coast are all suffering a double dip recession to include Oregon and California. Alan Greenspan has commented on the problems with the nation’s economy and his candid assessment is not very positive.

Unemployment Not Improving
Reverse Mortgage Foreclosures
Foreclosures Continue in Washington State at High Rates
Municipal Bonds at Risk?

For the month of December things weren’t quiet as bad as the awful November numbers in Washington State except for the fact that some 36,730 Washingtonians dropped out of the workforce and gave up trying to find a job. The U3 number (% collecting unemployment benefits) came in at 324,270 which was less than November because of a math detail. That detail centers on the number of people LEAVING the workforce (above). The U6 number or the number of folks unemployed including those in the U3 category was 599,195.

Things were gloom in King County: 8.4% collecting benefits or 92,170 that means that 186,534 people remain unemployed in the state’s largest county. In Snohomish County the U3 & U6 numbers were 9.8% or 37,220 and 64,565 totals. In Pierce County it added up to 9.2% or 36,620 and 67,667 folks out of work.

On the national scene the numbers at the end of the week ending 1/15 were not very encouraging. (Editor’s note: don’t believe the fools who write for the newspapers or report on the local TV outlets who report only the SEASONABLY ADJUSTED NUMBERS. These numbers MEAN NOTHING!). Going to the unadjusted numbers at this website we find the following: 550,594 people filed for FIRST TIME unemployment benefits for this week. Remarkably we now have 9,607,423 people collecting some sort of unemployment benefits nationwide according the US Department of Labor. If you calculate the U6 number or the total number of unemployed folks it comes in at 14,880,092! That is a lot of people who are unemployed. Several million other Americans have resorted to finding jobs that they are over qualified for and are simply doing what they can to survive.

Reverse Mortgages in the thousands up for foreclosure

If you are over 62 don’t believe these ads folks and see an attorney before signing any reverse mortgage contract. Fact is that even though the FHA is trying to help out seniors, the unfortunate truth is that literally hundreds of thousands of seniors who took our reverse mortgages are about to lose their homes as lenders are now going after those seniors who have not followed their contracts. That contract requires them to pay for a certain level of home insurance and PAY their property taxes. In addition, many of the reverse mortgage contracts have a clause that gives the home to the lender, no matter how much equity exists in the home.

HUD has already given approval to lenders to proceed to foreclosures on seniors with reverse mortgages in default and that is NOT good news! On top of that many real estate investors are already monitoring the public record to zero in on these foreclosures in order to make money on this terrible situation. Apparently this problem is particularly bad in California, Florida and Arizona.

The latest foreclosure numbers for the State of Washington are not good. Here is the map and you can take a look on a county by county basis. 40,874 homes have been foreclosed over the past 12 months and some 4,029 recent foreclosures on the market.

The Obama Administration has been very skilled at lying and doing everything it can to hide the worst recession in the history of the USA. Changing the subject on the left leaning MS/NBC, CNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC and ABC doesn’t put food on the table or pay the car and mortgage bills!
Fast Breaking News: State's want to go bankrupt, Do you own muni's? You might want to selectively review them and get out of those that your broker or research indicates are risky and uninsured, such as almost any municipality in the State of California or the State itself. For those of you who scoff at this suggestion you might want to recall the default here in Washington State of the Washington Public Power Supply System (WHOOPS!) that cost bond holders 2.25 Billion Dollars (that with a B)!
Right now institutional investors have unloaded more than 14 Billion dollars in Muni’s and are running for cover. A link to today’s NY Times piece about States that want to declare bankruptcy is above. By the way Washington State’s budget deficit is now estimated to be much more than $6 Billion dollars, and I would like to know where they intend to come up with that money.


Internet Berpotensi Ubah Kinerja Otak   


Internet tidak hanya mampu mengubah cara hidup manusia, juga berpotensi mengubah cara kerja otak manusia. Ahli fungsi otak UCLA California, AS, Gary Small berpendapat, internet memicu perubahan evolusioner pada otak sehingga penguasa teknologi akan menempati posisi tertinggi dalam tatanan sosial baru.

Dalam sebuah penelitian, Small menemukan, orang yang banyak melakukan pencarian di internet dan banyak menggunakan SMS memiliki otak lebih tajam dalam menyaring informasi sehingga mampu membuat keputusan lebih tepat. Namun begitu, Small memperingatkan, pengguna internet terancam pula oleh kecanduan sehingga gagap ketika berinteraksi sosial offline. Small menemukan pula, jumlah penderita attention deficit disorder di dunia meningkat sejak kehadiran internet.

Karena itu, Small mengingatkan, orang yang fasih menggunakan internet harus mengimbangi kemampuannya itu dengan keterampilan sosial offline. Saat seseorang fasih menggunakan teknologi sekaligus berkomunikasi tatap muka, maka dia akan menjadi manusia unggul pada masa depan.

"Kami melihat perubahan evolusioner. Orang-orang generasi berikutnya akan lebih menghargai orang yang menguasai teknologi dan keterampilan komunikasi tatap muka," ujar Small.

Small menegaskan, kehadiran media komunikasi digital seperti e-mail, IM (instant messaging), dan SMS tidak akan bisa menggantikan komunikasi tatap muka. Sebab, komunikasi-komunikasi digital yang mengandalkan teks tersebut tidak bisa mengungkap ekspresi pengguna. Small menuangkan temuan- temuan penelitiannya dalam buku "iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind".

GE froze pension benefits for thousands of employees. Here are 5 large companies that have done the same in the past.   


general electric

  • General Electric announced on Monday that more than 20,000 of the company's employees would see their pension benefits frozen as it moves to cut costs and reduce its mounting debt pile. 
  • GE is far from the first company to freeze pensions. US corporations have been increasingly transitioning employees from direct-benefit programs to traditional 401(k)s. 
  • Here are 5 other companies that have frozen pension plans in the past.

General Electric froze pension benefits for thousands of employees on Monday, and it's far from the first company to do so. 

The industrial conglomerate joins a growing list of firms over the last decade that have grappled with swelling pension deficits. 

GE froze benefits for more than 20,000 employees in an effort to shrink its mounting debt pile. The company said it expects the effort to lower its pension deficit by $5-8 billion and reduce its net debt by $4-6 billion.

Many other companies — including some of GE's competitors —have suspended pension plans in the past. 

Its important to note that several companies on the list transitioned employees from direct-benefit pensions to 401(K) plans, which are subject to market volatility. Direct-benefit programs include a specified payment amount for employees and the employer manages the plan.

Ron Paul: Fed's Latest Bailouts More Proof Bad Times Ahead   


Ron Paul: Fed's Latest Bailouts More Proof Bad Times Ahead

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

Since September 17, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has pumped billions of dollars into the repurchasing (repo) market, the first such intervention since 2009. The Fed has announced that it will continue to inject as much as 75 billion dollars a day into the repo market until November 4 [ZH - and today, Fed Chair Powell confirmed the ongoing buying of T-Bills in what he demanded the American public not call QE].

Source: Bloomberg

The repo market provides a means for banks that are temporarily short of cash to obtain short-term (usually one day) loans from other banks. The Fed’s interventions were a response to a sudden cash shortage that caused interest rates for these short-term loans to climb to 10 percent, far above the Fed’s target rate.

One of the factors blamed for the repo market’s cash shortage is the Federal Reserve’s sale of assets it acquired via the Quantitative Easing programs. Since launching its effort to “unwind” its balance sheet, the Fed had reduced its holdings by over 700 billion dollars. This seems like a large amount, but, given the Fed’s balance sheet was over four trillion dollars, the Fed only reduced its holdings by approximately 18 percent! If such a relatively small reduction in the Fed’s assets contributed to the cash shortage in the repo market, causing a panicked Fed to pump billions into the market, it is unlikely the Fed will be continuing selling assets and “normalizing” its balance sheet.

Another factor contributing to the repo market’s cash shortage was a major sale of US Treasury securities. Sales of government securities leave less capital available for private sector investments, increasing interest rates. This “crowding out” effect provides one more justification for the Federal Reserve to pump more money into the markets.

The crowding out effect is just one way federal debt increases pressure on the Fed to keep interest rates low. Increasing federal debt increases pressure on the Fed to maintain low interest rates to keep the federal government’s interest payments from reaching unsustainable levels. The over one trillion dollars (and rising) federal deficit is the major reason the Federal Reserve is likely to keep interest rates low or even adopt the insane policy of negative interest rates.

The American people are not even allowed to know what banks benefited from the Fed’s intervention in the repo market, or what plans the Fed is making for future bailouts — even though the people will pay for those bailouts either through increased taxes, debt, or the Federal Reserve’s hidden inflation tax when the next crash occurs. Of course, the average people who will lose their savings and their jobs in the next crash will not be bailed out. This is one more reason why it is so important Congress takes the first steps toward changing monetary policy by passing Audit the Fed.

The need for the Fed to shove billions into the repo market to keep that market’s interest rate near the Fed’s target shows the Fed is losing its power to control the price of money. The next crash will likely lead to the end of the fiat money system, along with the entire welfare-warfare state.

Those of us who understand the Fed is the cause of, not the solution to, our problems must redouble our efforts to educate our fellow citizens on sound economics and the ideas of liberty. This way, we can create the critical mass necessary to force Congress to cut spending, repeal the legal tender laws to restore a free market in money, and audit, then end, the Fed.
