Unions urge Gov. Snyder of Michigan to examine state contracts

Unions urge Gov. Snyder of Michigan to examine state contracts

State employees are hoping that a new study that shows the high cost of federal contracts will move the Snyder administration to take a look at how contractors are billing the state of Michigan. “The idea that we are saving money using outside contractors is not backed up by the evidence,” Phil Thompson, executive vice president of SEIU Local 517M, said in a statement. “We need to seriously look at whether our taxpayers are truly getting real value when it comes to the hundreds of millions the state spends on private contracts.” This week the Project on Government Oversight published a report that detailed how the federal government is wasting billions by paying contractors for work that could be done for less by state employees.

Green voter anger at Obama could open door for ‘environmental clown’ Perry, observers say

Green voter anger at Obama could open door for ‘environmental clown’ Perry, observers say

Even before tonight’s jobs speech, conservation groups in Colorado and across the Rocky Mountain West says it’s clear President Barack Obama has chosen polluting industry jobs over other employment sectors, demoralizing the environmental base ahead of the 2012 campaign. Last week’s decision by the Obama administration to shelve tougher EPA smog standards , coming hard on the heels of the State Department’s nod to the Keystone XL pipeline , has many mainstream environmentalists wondering if young, green voters will turn out for Obama next year the way they did in 2008. “ a huge mistake politically, and I don’t understand it at all,” Dr.

Study: HIV attitudes vary along racial lines, Americans ill-informed in general

Study: HIV attitudes vary along racial lines, Americans ill-informed in general

In a newly released study of public opinion from the Kaiser Family Foundation about HIV, researchers have found both hope and disappointment in the public’s understanding of HIV and AIDS. The study finds that while the epidemic has been around since 1981, the public’s understanding of how the virus is spread remains poor. Of the respondents in the study, 25 percent thought one could get HIV by sharing a drinking glass with some one with HIV, 45 percent say they’d be uncomfortable having their food prepared by someone who is HIV‐positive, 36 percent with having an HIV‐positive roommate, 29 percent having their child in a classroom with an HIV‐positive teacher, and 18 percent working with someone with HIV
