So, if we use the Inks option in the next months, who do we designate as the "front runner" ?

Santorum because he leads the national polls, or Romney because he leads among delegates ?

21632  About this Site / The Atlas / What should be done right now regarding polls added to the database ? on: February 16, 2012, 12:05:45 pm
Inks and I have discussed recently how to enter polls to the database in the next few months.

I favor this:

General election polls should be entered to the database using the leader of the most recent GOP primary poll in each state. For example: Santorum leads in OH's primary, he should be entered as Obama's opponent. If Romney wins OH on Super Tuesday, we pick Romney as Obama's opponent.

Inks favors this:

We should establish a current "frontrunner", say Romney, and use him for every poll until we know the eventual nominee.

...

What do you say ?

What's even better:

With all the positive polling coming out of NM & MI recently, the Obama campaign can expand the playing field into states like AZ, MO, IN, SC and GA - previously solid GOP - and force the Republicans to spend tons of money there (where they actually shouldn't have to worry about).
21634  General Politics / Economics / More good news from the US economic front on: February 16, 2012, 11:34:00 am
(Reuters) - The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week to a near four-year low, suggesting the labor market recovery was gaining steam.

Other government data on Thursday also pointed to sustained momentum in the economy, with builders breaking more ground on new residential projects in January and little signs of a pick-up in inflation pressures.

"The job market is getting better and that's really key. We're still in the early innings of this but I'm glad to see another data point that adds to the picture of an improving economy," said Kevin Caron, market strategist at Stifel, Nicolaus & Co in Florham Park, New Jersey

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 348,000, the Labor Department said, the lowest level since March 2008.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 365,000. The four-week moving average for new claims, seen as a better measure of labor market trends, fell 1,750 to 365,250 - the lowest since April 2008.



In a separate report, the Commerce Department said housing starts rose 1.5 percent to an annual rate of 699,000 units last month, beating economists' expectations for a 675,000-unit pace.

Starts were boosted by multi-unit buildings, reflecting growing demand for rental apartments as Americans move away from homeownership. Permits for future home construction rose 0.7 percent to a 676,000-unit pace in January.

U.S. stock index futures and crude oil futures pared losses after the data. The dollar rose against the yen, and U.S. Treasuries prices rose modestly.

...

Could we see another month with 250.000 or more jobs created ?

The 15 year itch is a bit strange. That's what I call it.

Back in 1995, my mother rented a horror film for her, me and my sister to watch on a Friday night. One she said scared her as a kid. It wasn't full of explicit sex or violence, but it was scary. I was 8 years old. We rented "When a Stranger Calls", a 1979 film with Carol Kane and Charles Durning (still alive, BTW). I also watched many 80s slasher flicks, circa 1980. It was a 15 year-feeling. My mother would say, "Wow...that was out when I was 16 years old just 15 years ago..." ect.

Then by the year 2000, with George Bush running for President suddenly the past politics of the days of Reagan/Bush/Quayle from the 1980/1984/1988 campaigns all came flooding back on television and what not. Around that time I remember hearing about the 15th anniversary of the Challenger disaster, and again, those classic 80s flicks being about 15 years old or so. For my 12th birthday, next to my PlayStation and Super Nintendo and N64, I recieved an original 1985 Nintendo as a gift. I received games like The Paperboy, Super Mario Brothers as well as the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th Nintendo video games. All of this was "about" 15 years ago.

Suddenly, my favorite film, "Armageddon", released in 1998 is 14 years old. Another favorite of mine, "Con-Air", is at the 15 year mark. TWA 800, Bob Dole, and any possibly good 90s pop culture is suddenly becoming dated. Comic books I bought in Very Fine+ condition for cheap in the late 90s now have 15 years more worth to them.

That does sometimes get me feeling a bit depressed. Suddenly we are now six years past a remake of a film I saw when it was 15 years old. Now that movie is 33 years old.

I wonder what a person from 1981 who just watched the newly released "The Evil Dead" would say if you'd show him the latest "Saw 57" right after the first one ... Tongue

I'm sure a kebab-stand is quite necessary at St. Peters Square.
LOLWUT?

Why not ? Similar to all the hot dog stands in NYC.

Even though I have been to St. Peters Square before with our school class, I do not remember anymore if there were kebab or hot dog stands in St. Peters Square. Would be good though, because I really like to eat a bosna/kebab/hot dog once in a while during sight-seeing.

Just write in "Franzl for President" if possible, because "Franzl for President" would be much better than any of these 4 figures on the ballot.
