1 In 5 Workers Laid Off In Past 5 Years Still Unemployed -Survey

Number of long term unemployed - 3 Million

Still waiting on that recovery.

WASHINGTON -- Twenty-two percent of workers laid off in the past five years are still unemployed, according to a new survey.

The John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University surveyed more than 1,100 workers, including nearly 400 who are unemployed. A slim majority of laid-off workers in the survey, or 54 percent, said they received unemployment insurance when they lost their jobs. However, 83 percent of those who received benefits said the compensation ran out before they found jobs.

Congress dropped extended unemployment benefits at the end of last year, despite complaints from Democrats and a few Republicans. Last week House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who refused to allow a House vote reauthorizing the benefits, said that some unemployed people want to "just sit around" instead of trying to work.

The number of long-term unemployed in the country has fallen to 3 million, down from a high of 6.6 million in 2010. While some are finding jobs, others are no longer counted as unemployed because they've given up looking for work. Economists are unsure how much the decline in long-term joblessness owes to people finding jobs.

Nope, Al Gore gets into a big Chevy Suburban LT

Former Vice President Al Gore made his exit from Sunday's climate change march in New York City in a Chevrolet Suburban SUV after speaking to reporters about renewable energy.

Gore asked a security officer, "You want me here?" before stepping into the SUV, which appears to be a Suburban LT model, as seen in a logo behind the passenger door Gore entered. It is unknown if the large Chevy SUV was a flex fuel vehicle.

Breitbart News asked the environmental activist about the financial costs of renewable energy, as well as his own house—a mansion in Nashville which has previously been criticized for the amount of energy it reportedly uses. Gore simply replied, "Hundred percent."

Gore marched with global warming protesters at the People's Climate March along with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, among various celebrities. De Blasio praised Gore's work during a press gaggle at the march.

"I quit"

A reporter for Anchorage CBS-affiliate KTVA quit on live television Sunday night, using the f-word to punctuate an announcement that she will work to legalize marijuana as the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club.

"Everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska," she said.

"And as for this job," Greene continued, "Well, not that I have a choice, but f--- it, I quit."


When the go back to the desk, the surprised anchor apologizes for reporter Charlo Greene's comment.
Watch- This is not the way you do it.


Arizona: High School Football Coach Gets Suspended Two Games For Praying With Team (Video)

Video report from ABC15. They talk to one of the fans at the Friday night football game. His response is the quote of the day-

Ray Rice gets two games for 'cold conking his girlfriend,' the coach gets two games for praying. Something is really wrong with that

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- A Tempe school football coach must miss his team's game Friday as part of a punishment for praying with his players.

Tom Brittain is serving the second week of a two-game suspension from his job as coach at Tempe Preparatory Academy.

Headmaster David Baum says Brittain instructed a player to lead the team in prayer after they won a game.

Baum says staff cannot appear to condone religion to students on behalf of the state-funded charter school's behalf.

Some students hung a sign in support of Brittain at the school's homecoming game last week.

Some parents have expressed outrage at Baum's decision. But others say the school is not a religious institution and that Brittain violated school policy

Islamic State Tells Followers To Attack U.S., French Citizens - ISIS Website

BAGHDAD, Sept 22 - Islamic State has urged its followers to attack citizens of the United States, France and other allies who have joined a coalition to fight the militant group, the SITE monitoring website said on Monday.

The United States is building an international coalition to destroy the radical Sunni Muslim group, which has seized swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria and proclaimed a caliphate in the heart of the Middle East.

U.S. and French warplanes have struck Islamic State targets in Iraq and on Sunday the United States said other countries had indicated a willingness to join it if it goes ahead with air strikes against the group in Syria too.

Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani said the military intervention by the U.S.-led coalition would be the "final campaign of the crusaders," according to a transcript published by SITE.
