It's one of those Presidential executive orders that will have pay-back....probably in five to eight years. Yesterday, the President signed the order that students loans....which you can only get via a government source now....will be capped on pay-back to ten-percent of your pay. That's all you HAVE to pay (you could pay more but you don't have to). The general gut feeling of most business analysts is that people will drag this out and at age fifty when they ought to have a eighty thousand dollar student loan paid....they will instead owe at least ten more years. You can even write up a scenario where you borrowed ninety-thousand....took a low-paying job because that's all that was available for your profession....and find yourself at sixty-five years old....still owing money. The eventual fate? It'll cause the US government to progress into another recession somewhere down the line (fifteen to twenty-five years). Pretty stupid, but then....you can't stop people from borrowing massive amounts of money.
A study came up with this statistical piece....one in three adults are on the borderline of diabetes. Between physical lifestyle, diet, and habits.....an entire segment of society is heading toward a pretty dangerous trend.
Some smart guys went out and discovered that if you had an active lifestyle.....did some minor work-outs....had some exercise each week....that you'd develop a more aggressive bacteria which reside in your stomach. And those bacteria? Well....they'd like to consume more. So as you work out and run, swim or hike.....you are building up an army of calorie consumers.
Finally, some smart guys have surveyed the public and found that people with a higher level of depression later in life.....are more prone to have Alzheimers. There's not a lot in the report to say precisely why, and if there is a trigger here. But it makes you wonder about things.
