American Dream Fades for Generation Y *Professionals*

 

 

 

===================================================

 

 

Generation Y *professionals* entering the workforce are finding careers that once were gateways to high pay and upwardly mobile lives turning into detours and dead ends.

 

Average incomes for individuals ages 25 to 34 have fallen 8 percent, double the adult population’s total drop, since the recession began in December 2007.

 

Their unemployment rate remains stuck one-half to 1 percentage point above the national figure.

 

Three and a half years after the worst recession since the Great Depression, the earnings and employment gap between those in the under-35 population and their parents and grandparents threatens to unravel the American dream of each generation doing better than the last.

 

Those who finish only high school or drop out fare worse.

 

Almost four out of five jobs destroyed by the recession were held by *workers* with a high school diploma or less

Swaps ‘Armageddon’ Lingers as New Rules Concentrate Risk

The Fiscal Cliff Is A Diversion: The Derivatives Tsunami and the Dollar Bubble” ©  by Paul Craig Roberts –item 2 in 12 18 12 Superpower Death Watch… ]

 

 

On a good day, 27-year-old Bobby Timberlake at CME Group Inc….in Chicago rounds up $2.5 billion from the world’s biggest traders and banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co….to cover their *losses* in the $639 trillion derivatives markets.

 

What happens on a bad day will test new rules in the Dodd-Frank Act designed to prevent a repeat of 2008’s credit crisis.

 

Starting in March [2013], as much as 79 percent of derivatives trades known as swaps must be backed by collateral and go through clearinghouses such as CME Group.

 

Traders may have to post $927 billion with Timberlake and his peers at LCH.Clearnet Group Ltd. and IntercontinentalExchange Inc…., whose role as middlemen is to ensure participants get paid.

 

This arrangement can withstand almost any shock, including defaults by four of the biggest lenders, according to the clearinghouses.

 

Some bankers and researchers aren’t convinced.  They warn unprecedented amounts of risk will be concentrated in a handful of clearinghouses — some newly eligible for emergency Federal Reserve loans.

 

If they fail, taxpayers who financed $1.2 trillion of bailouts last time could be on the hook again.

10 students detained in house raids for role in ODTU [Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey] protests

The Turkish capital awoke Dec. 21 to police raids at several student houses just three days after the same students were subjected to disproportionate police force while protesting a visit by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the Middle East Technical University…on Dec. 18.

 

A group of students protested the visit of Erdo

ğan, who came to ODTU to attend the Gokturk-2 satellite launch ceremony Dec. 18.

 

[ With the GOKTURK-2 Project…the *image requirements* of the Turkish Armed Forces and other public institutions will also be met.

]

 

 

Police used pepper gas and pressurized water against the protesting students, who were not allowed to approach the ceremony hall.

The Ankara Bar Association protested the raids in front of the Ankara Court House with a press statement read by its administrative board member Erol Aras.

“Students’ being taken into custody within the framework of the *anti-terror* Law, while they were using their most natural right to protest, is an intimidation.”

Former Army doctor struck off over death of Iraq detainee Baha Mousa

 

 

 

—————————————————

 

 

Now a popular and “conscientious” family doctor, Dr Keilloh was the medic in charge who supervised a failed resuscitation attempt on Mr Mousa, who had been hooded, handcuffed and severely beaten by soldiers after his arrest as a suspected insurgent in war-torn Basra in September 2003.

 

Dr Keilloh, then a captain and regimental medical officer of the 1st Battalion, Queen’s Lancashire Regiment (1QLR), claimed later that he saw only dried blood around the nose of Mr Mousa, 26, while giving mouth-to-mouth and CPR.

 

His body swollen and bruised, Mr Mousa, a father of two, had suffered 93 separate injuries, including fractured ribs and a broken nose.

 

The MPTS [Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service] found Dr Keilloh guilty of misconduct following Mr Mousa’s death and announced “with regret” the only “appropriate sanction” was banning him from working as a doctor.

 

Phil Shiner, of Public Interest Lawyers, said: “The medical profession is well rid of such a man.

 

*All* those UK doctors in Iraq who also saw signs of ill-treatment of Iraqi detainees but took no action had best start to instruct lawyers.”
