Maxed Out takes viewers on a journey deep inside the American style of debt, where things seem fine as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. With coverage that spans from small American towns all the way to the White House, the film shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of "preferred customer" and tells us why the poor are getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer. Hilarious, shocking and incisive, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us.
Another Tulane Energy Institute hard hat trip - touring Shell's oil refinery in Norco, Louisiana.
Some of my colleagues and I from the Tulane Energy Institute recently spent several hours hiking around this $721 million natural gas unit under construction at the Ninemile Point Plant in Westwego, Louisiana. It will generate 550 megawatts of electric power when completed in 2015. I think I like wearing a hard hat. LOL!
According to a working paper from researchers at Harvard University and the University of British Columbia, the five happiest cities in the U.S. all happen to be located in one state, which also ranks as the happiest state...
That state is Louisiana. Specifically, the list-toppers of cities include Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport-Bossier City, Baton Rouge and Alexandria. Although some disagree that Louisiana is the happiest state, some research is proving otherwise. Polls that disagree typically use determinants such as financial, economic and purpose driven objectives many of which are career oriented, none of which apply (or have a significant impact) on happiness levels of Louisianans. Some studies have even declared Louisana to be one of the unhappiest states according to tweets and other statistics which are being proven wrong....
On the other end of the spectrum, the unhappiest cities had New York City topping the list, followed by St. Joseph, Missouri; South Bend, Indiana; Erie, Pennsylvania; Evansville, Indiana--Henderson, Kentucky; Toledo, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Jersey City, New Jersey; Gary, Indiana; and Scranton--Wilkes-Barre--Hazleton, Pennsylvania....
Louisiana ranks very low in median family and household income, typically 47th and 48th out of 51 states. It also ranks among the highest in percent of people below poverty level. So why are they so happy and makes cities and states unhappy?
According to a study from Lund University, collective picture of what makes us happy is more about relationships and people, and less about things.
"It's relationships that are most important, not material things, and this is in line with other findings in happiness research," says Danilo Garcia, researcher in psychology at the Sahlgrenska Academy's Centre for Ethics, Law and Mental Health.
