Saw this on YouTube this morning — VERY cool video of solar mass ejection. I think this is different from a solar flare as indicated here.
Been seeing alot on the news lately about all the jobs that have been created in Texas during the current recession.
I always want to see the demographic number distributions when I hear such information coming from politicians. The one thing that I always think about with respect to job creation, for both the present and the future, is how permanent are these jobs and how will they contribute to the economy in the long run. This article makes me think that many of the stories I have heard about low paying jobs coming from this growth are indeed true, and that very little long-term investment is being made.
