US STORES CLOSINGS

Certainly RIMM shares are not looking so hot today, not even after the JP Morgan “take-over”; oh yes, I know, RIMM said they were “hiring” JP Morgan for financial advisory and for them to “assist in reviewing RIM’s business and financial performance”; allow me to laugh, most likely they will push for a sale and make tons of profit at the expense of the shareholder.
One source close to the company told Reuters the impending layoffs could hit as many as 6,000 people and affect RIM’s legal, marketing, sales, operations, and human resources divisions.
“The strategic question is: are you accelerating into a better future or shrinking to a niche operation,” said the source, who declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the job cuts.

“IN TROUBLED TIMES, THE FEARFUL AND NAIVE ARE ALWAYS DRAWN TO CHARISMATIC RADICALS”
Obama administration is increasing the number of deportation agents by a staggering 25% in furtherance of the aggressive goal to deport as many people as humanly possible before the end of President Obama’s first term in office.
Obama holds the all-time deportation record for a sitting President, but like Barry Bonds, the Deportation King is going to put the record so far out of reach that historians will be forced to impose an asterisk.
ICE’s hiring efforts began on May 14 with the established goal of increasing the number of “fugitive operations teams” from 104 to 129. The plan is for each team to arrest 50 “criminal aliens” per month.
It should be noted that the Obama administration’s definition of “criminal aliens” includes asylum seekers who used fraudulent documentation to escape their country of persecution, and other individuals with no criminal records.
This latest move is clearly in response to what are now confirmed reports that the Obama administration fabricated claims that they have been targeting more “criminal” aliens for deportation.

Tony Martin is an extraordinary cyclist, made of iron, from head to toe, from inside and out. Tony Martin was hit by a car in training last month of April, suffered several facial fractures and lost consciousness after impact. Tony was diagnosed with a fracture on his cheek bone and now he is the absolute winner of the Tour of Belgium 2012.
The win was a confidence boost for the Tour de France stage winner who is preparing for another assault on cycling’s biggest Grand Tour with his new team after transferring from the now defunct HTC-Highroad at the end of last season.
“I knew the day would be tough with all those hills. The team worked hard but when Barredo was gone and I was along, I was lucky enough to get a little help form my friend Griepel. That’s what friends are for.” He told reporters.
“The whole stage was pretty hard, like expected,” Martin said according to his team. “The profile, I think it was 16 climbs, really hard climbs from the Ardennes Classics, so we knew it would be a hard stage. But we really had a strong team here. We controlled the race right from the beginning, and then in the final I took the risk to stay in front, so that the gap in front couldn’t get far away. It was really hard, but I have to say thank you to the whole team. The whole week they always protected me. I am happy for this team that we could win this race here.”
“It was an important race for me. I didn’t have a win yet. I had some physical problems due to the crash, and it takes always a while to get with a new team and get used to everything, but I think we are now in a really good way. It’s important to get confidence for the future.” He heads next to the Critérium du Dauphiné as next step, in preparation for the Tour de France.“

John Williams is a well renown and respected international economist, who has been analyzing the REAL statistics about unemployment, GDP an other numbers that provide us with accurate information, not like the ones coming from the governments of the world. So, if you consider yourself intelligent and sovereign, read his statistics; you don´t need to buy his news letter (I don´t), just Google his name, find videos where he has given interviews, LISTEN to him and make your own conclusions.
The San Diego Unified School District Board of Education approved 1,534 teacher, nurse, and counselor layoffs Tuesday night, a move that could boost class sizes and leave roughly 20 percent of the district’s teaching force without a job next year.
The layoffs are designed to help stem a projected budget shortfall of $122 million in next year’s budget.
“We have to do so to stay afloat,” said Superintendent Bill Kowba Tuesday.
Tuesday’s vote is the official end to a process that began in March, but does little to indicate how many employees will actually be out of a job next school year.
A “few hundred” teachers and certified employees who received notices will return next year simply because of staff vacancies, said Lamont Jackson, Chief Human Resources Officer.
“Even though I’ve been teaching nine years, I’m getting a layoff notice this year. My fourth one in five years,” said Dennis Schamp, a language arts teacher at Lewis Middle School.

As I have been saying since 2009, when the Global Modern Day Depression started, the financial system is broken not only in Greece but all over the world; it is simply not sustainable anymore. All the excesses and greed that global institutions, corporations and governments have commited for ions are now putting the economy of the world under severe distress and danger of collapse.
As was leaked earlier today, so it would be:
- MOODY’S CUTS 16 SPANISH BANKS AND SANTANDER UK PLC
- MOODY’S CUTS 1 TO 3 LEVELS L-T RATINGS OF 16 SPANISH BANKS
- MOODY’S DOWNGRADES SPANISH BANKS; RATINGS CARRY NEGATIVE
In summary, the highest Moodys rating for any Spanish bank as of this point is A3. But luckily the other “rumor” of a bank run at Bankia was completely untrue, at least according to Spanish economic ministry officials, so there is no need to worry: it is all under control. The Banko de Espana said so.

Greese, Spain, Portugal, Italy…things are not pretty in the Europe right now. This issue will soon hit the USA. Are Americans who are 20 or 30 years old, (born in the 80′s and 90′s) obligated to pay debts —agreed to in the 40′s and 50′s—over which they had no (vote) say? Something to ponder about.
Europe’s financial crisis lurched into a perilous new phase as dire predictions emerged of a collapse in Greece’s economy, with a run on its banks bringing an inevitable end to its membership of the euro.
As leaders in Athens accepted the need for a new general election to end a national stalemate, the International Monetary Fund said Europe’s leaders should prepare for the possibility of a Greek departure from the single currency.
Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF, warned she was “technically prepared for anything” and said the utmost effort must be made to ensure any Greek exit was orderly. The effect was likely to be “quite messy” with risks to growth, trade and financial markets. “It is something that would be extremely expensive and would pose great risks but it is part of options that we must technically consider,” she said.

It is obvious that the financial recession in the world keeps getting worse as thousands of companies continue laying workers off, and all this because the global economic system has been proven to be unsustainable.
“Jobs in London’s finance sector will slump to their lowest level for 16 years as the euro zone crisis is predicted to cause over 25,000 layoffs in 2012.
That would push the number of jobs lost in the City of London since the top of the financial boom in 2007 to 100,000, the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) said.”

I wonder about Wonder, is it going to disappear or is it going to be bought out by Bimbo or another company? So far, the information out there is not very positve for Wonder Hostess, and I must say neither for Teamsters.
Hostess Brands Inc. on Friday sent out letters notifying its more-than 18,000 workers that they could be laid off in the next two months.
The maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread on Friday mailed out WARN Act notices to all of its employees, a Hostess spokeswoman confirmed to Bankruptcy Beat Monday. The federal WARN Act requires companies to give employees 60 days notice before closing a facility or ordering mass layoffs. However, sending the notices doesn’t mean a company is definitely going to lay off the recipients.
