World Health Org Study Says Working Too Many Hours a Week Is Killing 700,000+ Every Year

This article was originally published by B.N. Frank at Activist Post. 

There’s an old saying – “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”  According to the WHO – it may make Jack more than dull.  From Newser:

Working Too Many Hours Is Killing 745K a Year

‘Working 55 hours or more per week is a serious health hazard,’ researchers say

(Newser) – Working too many hours in a week is a massive health hazard that kills an estimated 745,000 people worldwide—and the problem is getting worse, according to a new World Health Organization study. The WHO says that compared to a standard working week of 35 to 40 hours, working 55 hours or more in a week is associated with a 35% higher risk of having a stroke and a 17% higher risk of dying from heart disease, the BBC reports. More than 70% of the deaths associated with long working hours were in men middle-aged and older, though researchers say the deaths often occurred later in life than the period of overwork.

“Working 55 hours or more per week is a serious health hazard,” said Maria Neira, director of the WHO’s Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health, per Reuters. “What we want to do with this information is promote more action, more protection of workers.” The problem is most severe in Southeast Asia and the western Pacific region, researchers say. The study found that long hours can be deadly both from the body’s direct reaction to stress and the unhealthy lifestyles, including tobacco use, unhealthy diets, and a lack of sleep and exercise, that people working too many hours tend to adopt. The study did not include data from the pandemic, though WHO officials say evidence suggests the number of hours worked tends to increase around 10% during lockdowns. (Read more overwork stories.)

This Global Depression Will Be Brutal – Tens Of Millions Of Americans Can’t Pay Their Bills And Are In Danger Of Eviction

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

Most of us have never experienced anything like this in our entire lifetimes.  Fear of COVID-19, endless civil unrest in major U.S. cities, and a whole host of other factors have combined to plunge us into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

On Friday, the Labor Department announced that the unemployment rate in the U.S. fell to just 10.2 percent last month, and if that number was actually accurate that would be pretty good news.  Unfortunately, it simply does not square with all of the other numbers that we have been seeing.  According to John Williams of shadowstats.com, if honest numbers were being used the unemployment rate would actually be 30 percent right now, and I believe that figure is much closer to the reality that we are facing.  In February, 152 million Americans were working, and since that time more than 55 million have filed new claims for unemployment benefits.  Unless tens of millions of those people have been filing fraudulent claims, there is no way in the world that the unemployment rate should be about 10 percent right now.

Other numbers tell a similar story.  According to one recent study, 24 percent of all Americans have missed at least one bill payment since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic…

Indeed, paying off bills are an unavoidable part of life, even during a pandemic. Unfortunately, a new survey of 2,000 Americans finds that one in four (24%) have already missed at least one payment since the pandemic began.

Among that group, 26% say they haven’t paid their cell phone or cable bills. Another 25% failed to pay for streaming services, and perhaps more worryingly, some of their electricity or utilities bills.

That doesn’t sound like a recovery.

What that sounds like is an economic depression.

Americans are also missing their rent and mortgage payments at a staggering rate as well.  In fact, more than one-fourth of the entire country did not pay their rent or mortgage payment during the month of July…

An estimated 27% of adults in the U.S. missed their rent or mortgage payment for July, according to a nationwide survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau weekly over the last three months. Among renters alone, just over one-third (34%) said during the waning days of July that they had little to no confidence that they could make their August rent payment, a stark measure of the ongoing economic devastation for households stretched to the brink by coronavirus pandemic.

But we are supposed to believe that the unemployment rate is only about 10 percent right now.

Right…

In some states, the looming eviction crisis threatens to be absolutely catastrophic.

For example, we are being told that in South Carolina a whopping 52 percent of all renters “are at risk of eviction”

In South Carolina alone, 52 percent of renter households can’t pay their rent and are at risk of eviction, according to an analysis of census data by the consulting firm Stout Risius Ross. About 185,000 evictions could be filed in the state over the next four months.

That doesn’t sound like a recovery.

What that sounds like is an economic depression.

And we see similar numbers when we look at business owners around the country.  If you can believe it, 83 percent of all New York City restaurant owners did not pay all of their rent in July…

The state of the New York City restaurant industry is in dire straits. July proved to be another disastrous month for restaurants, bars, and nightlife establishments across the city with a majority unable to pay rent in July, a new survey found.

NYC Hospitality Alliance surveyed about 500 owners and operators of eateries in the city, with 83% of respondents indicating they couldn’t pay the entire rent in July while 37% paid no rent at all.

83 percent.

Let that number sink in for a moment.

That doesn’t sound like a recovery.

What that sounds like is an economic depression.

And I am certainly not the only one using the “d-word”.  The following originally comes from a Time Magazine article entitled “The Next Global Depression Is Coming and Optimism Won’t Slow It Down”

First, the current slowdown is without doubt global. Most postwar U.S. recessions have limited their worst effects to the domestic economy. But most were the result of domestic inflation or a tightening of national credit markets. That is not the case with COVID-19 and the current global slowdown. This is a synchronized crisis, and just as the relentless rise of China over the past four decades has lifted many boats in richer and poorer countries alike, so slowdowns in China, the U.S. and Europe will have global impact on our globalized world. This coronavirus has ravaged every major economy in the world. Its impact is felt everywhere.

You have probably noticed that things are really starting to get crazy out there.

People are getting very desperate, and very desperate people do very desperate things.

In one community in Texas, it is being reported that someone is actually killing horses and eating them…

At least five horses have been killed around Pearland, Texas since late May — but it’s the way they’re being killed and what’s being done to their carcasses that’s particularly disturbing to locals.

Pearland police made their first discovery June 10. Responding to an animal cruelty call along the 14000 block of Kirby Drive, they found a horse, dead and butchered.

You would have to be incredibly twisted to do such a thing, but as I have been warning for a very long time, we are going to see much crazier things in the years ahead.

Of course, countless other Americans can also see that society is starting to come apart at the seams, and this has helped to fuel an unprecedented spike in gun sales

Gun sales surged 135% year-over-year in July to about 2 million and have already matched all of last year, according to a report released earlier this week by research consultancy Small Arms Analytics and Forecasting. Sales were up 145% in June, 80% in May and 71% in April.

We live at a time when rioting, looting, and violence are becoming commonplace, and crime rates are absolutely skyrocketing in our major cities.

And the worse economic conditions become, the worse the chaos is going to get.

So I would very much encourage you to set your affairs in order and to get prepared for what is ahead because the time remaining to do such things is very limited.

The U.S. Economy Hasn’t Experienced Anything Like This Since The Great Depression Of The 1930s

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

The recession of 2008 and 2009 was bad, but it was nothing like this.  Even though this new economic downturn is only a few months old, we are already seeing numbers that we haven’t seen since the worst parts of the Great Depression of the 1930s.

More than 48 million Americans have filed new claims for unemployment benefits over the past 15 weeks, well over 100,000 businesses have permanently closed their doors, and civil unrest has turned quite a few of our major cities into war zones.  But not all areas of the country are being affected equally.  For example, there are rural areas that haven’t really seen a lot of COVID-19 cases where life seems to have changed very little from six months ago.  On the other hand, some urban areas that have been hit really hard by COVID-19 have been absolutely devastated economically.  For example, the New York Times is reporting that a million jobs have been lost in New York City, and the unemployment rate for NYC “is hovering near 20 percent”

The city is staggering toward reopening with some workers back at their desks or behind cash registers, and on Monday, it began a new phase, allowing personal-care services like nail salons and some outdoor recreation to resume. Even so, the city’s unemployment rate is hovering near 20 percent — a figure not seen since the Great Depression.

We are going to be using the phrase “since the Great Depression” a lot in the coming months.

Fear of COVID-19 is going to paralyze our economy for the foreseeable future, and all of this fear is hitting some companies more severely than others.  On Tuesday, Levi Strauss announced that sales were down a whopping 62 percent during the second quarter

The denim maker Levi Strauss & Co.’s sales fell 62% during its fiscal second quarter, the company announced Tuesday, as its online sales weren’t enough to make up for its stores being temporarily shut for roughly 10 weeks during the Covid-19 crisis.

If Levi Strauss expected this to be just a temporary setback, they would probably try to keep all of their employees on board.

But instead, they apparently believe that hard times are here to stay and they have just decided to eliminate “about 700 jobs”

Levi’s also announced it will be slashing about 15% of its global corporate workforce, impacting about 700 jobs, in a bid to cut costs during the coronavirus pandemic. It said the move should generate annualized savings for Levi’s of $100 million.

Of course, a whole lot of other companies are laying off workers right now too.  Another 1.427 million Americans filed new claims for unemployment benefits last week, and that is an absolutely catastrophic number.  Prior to 2020, the worst week in all of U.S. history for new unemployment claims was in 1982 when 695,000 unemployed workers filed in a single week.  So what we are witnessing right now is nothing short of a “tsunami of job losses”, and even CNN is admitting that millions of the jobs that have been lost “are never coming back”…

The American economy’s unprecedented jobs rebound masks a difficult truth: For millions of people, the jobs they lost are never coming back.

“It’s clear that the pandemic is doing some fundamental damage to the job market,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics. “A lot of the jobs lost aren’t coming back any time soon. The idea that the economy is going to snap back to where it was before the pandemic is clearly not going to happen.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Since most Americans were living paycheck to paycheck before this pandemic erupted, millions of unemployed workers have found themselves in desperate need very suddenly.  I have written numerous articles about the massive lines that we have been witnessing at food banks around the nation, and we just witnessed another two-mile-long line at a food bank in Florida

More than 700 cars were seen waiting in a two-mile long food bank line in Florida as the US grapples with nearly half of Americans being unemployed amid a spike in new coronavirus cases that has sparked fears of more shut downs and lay-offs.

Sunrise Assistant Leisure Services Director Maria Little, who was put in charge of food distribution for the city when the coronavirus hit the US in March, said her group served about 720 cars in Miami on Wednesday.

This is not what a “recovery” looks like.

In fact, for certain sectors of the economy, the numbers are rapidly getting a lot worse.  For instance, just check out what CNBC is reporting

Delinquencies in commercial mortgage-backed securities last month had their largest one-month surge since Fitch Ratings began tracking the metric nearly 16 years ago.

The delinquency rate hit 3.59% in June, an increase from 1.46% in May. New delinquencies totaled $10.8 billion in June, raising the total delinquent pool to $17.2 billion.

And Fitch Ratings is warning that these numbers are going to get far worse in the months ahead.

And this is just the beginning. Fitch analysts are projecting that the impact from the coronavirus pandemic will drive the delinquency rate to between 8.25% and 8.75% by the end of the third quarter of this year.

I have said this before, and I will say it again.

We are on the verge of the biggest commercial mortgage meltdown in the history of the United States.

Countless restaurants and retailers are getting way behind on their rent payments, and as a result, many owners of commercial property are finding it increasingly difficult to make their mortgage payments.

The dominoes are starting to fall, and this is going to get really, really messy as we head into 2021 and beyond.

Of course, the same thing could be said for the U.S. economy as a whole.

I know that I haven’t been posting quite as often the last couple of weeks, and that is because I have been finishing my new book.  It is not too far from being completed, and it is going to be the most important thing that I have written so far.

We are right on the precipice of the most chaotic chapter in all of American history, and a collapsing economy is just going to be one element of “the perfect storm” that we are facing.

So please use the summer months to get prepared for what is ahead, because even though things are bad right now, the truth is that we have only experienced the leading edge of “the perfect storm” so far.

Americans brainwashing Businesses chaos Critical Thinking Debt Entrepreneurs Federal Reserve Government Headline News Intelwars Leverage Mainstream media mind manipulation misplaced monetary experiment old prank propaganda Shut-down Stress The Fed too divided

ARMY OF MORONS: Media Out Of Control – USA GOING DOWN!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. 

Yesterday and today, for the first time in my life, I watched the mainstream media in order to understand what people, who are clearly INCAPABLE OF CRITICAL THINKING, allow CNN to brainwash them with. I was an experiment in tapping into the intellect of the average voter.

I have to say that, at different times, I thought LONG AND HARD about the contempt of the editors and script writers, who come up with the narrative for the news, towards the viewers. Clearly, they must be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that they are speaking to people with the understanding of a three-year-old.

I sat there and thought this was a prank.

Two conclusions that any self-respecting American needs to draw in 2020:

  1. The media has NO RESPECT for its audience. They are literally engaged in dumbing down people that already probably do NO READING, NO THINKING AND NO STUDYING and are susceptible to propaganda and mind manipulation.
  2. The media is not media at all. What I saw from CNN borders on a lawsuit that ought to be filed against them for irresponsibly spreading junk around.

I had to laugh, since it was so awkward. It was troubling to view the words they chose to deliver their propaganda, and my biggest concern is that America is TOO DIVIDED and TOO MISPLACED to come back from this into the realm of real debate.

There are millions of people who are TRULY SUFFERING and I don’t think that there’s any REAL INTENTION to come together.

The survey above represents THE BEATING PULSE of America; entrepreneurs, who took it upon themselves to start a business in their own community, risked everything and built something, only to be told to SHUT THEM DOWN. There’s a cost to FORCING UNPRODUCTIVITY and the price has yet to be revealed, but it will be MASSIVE.

Small businesses are bleeding, and creating new currency doesn’t solve the problem.

Consumer spending is about emotional decision-making, not about getting government aid. Unless Americans feel secured and confident in the future, they will choose to close their wallets and to down-size.

How can politicians, who have no idea what it is like to DELIVER REAL VALUE to the marketplace, to innovate and put a smile on someone else’s face, know how to LEAD US THROUGH this crisis?

Government doesn’t lead; it only serves to make people INDIFFERENT to their true worth by offering subsidized social programs.

Since the Federal Reserve took it upon itself in 2008 to “SOLVE MATTERS,” we have witnessed debt issuance by both governments and corporations become a POOR JOKE.

Debt is death. Debt is leverage. Debt is stress.

Finally, debt is the problem of both the entity that wants it and the entity that extends it. Certainly, it is NOT MY PROBLEM if Wells Fargo or any other criminal-minded institution decides to push his luck and lend currency to people who can’t possibly repay it.

Debt will SELF-DESTRUCT and collapse under its own weight, so don’t worry about the fact that these bankers live like kings. In the end, they will pay for their actions.

The general population is SO NUMB that it might not happen until we get a full-blown revolution, but know that chaos is the result of this monetary experiment these lunatics are taking us all on and FORCING UPON US.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The world IS PANICKED. You can see it by looking at where people choose to put their money.

What we need to understand is that we can’t CHANGE THE WORLD, but we must not GET DRAGGED into the foolishness and evil that is attempting to re-program our values and principles.

Be true to yourself. Be true to what’s effective and don’t allow CORPORATE INTERESTS to influence your integrity.

Andrew Cuomo China Coronavirus COVID-19 Eric Garcetti face masks Fear Headline News infection Intelwars market drops Preparedness stockpiling Stress

“Coronavirus Anxiety” Is Running Rampant All Over America, And This Could Be Only Just The Beginning…

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

All across the United States people are getting really stressed out about COVID-19.  Every effort to contain the virus has failed, cases have started to pop up all over America, and the latest numbers show that it is 34 times more deadly than the flu.

And what makes this particular coronavirus even more frightening is the fact that it is so easy to catch.  You can become infected simply by breathing in the air around you, it can live on solid surfaces for days, and some victims can carry it around for weeks before ever showing any symptoms.  As this virus continues to spread, literally no public place will be safe, and that is really freaking a lot of people out.

But so far only 11 Americans have died from the virus.

If thousands start dying in this country, what is our national mood going to be like at that point?

Already, the level of stress that we are witnessing is very alarming.  The following comes from an NPR article about the “national anxiety” that we are currently experiencing…

And, as the coronavirus spreads, our unanswered questions can make us feel vulnerable or fearful. “Will it come to my community” or “Am I at risk?’

“We’ve got national anxiety at the moment, a kind of shared stress, and we are all in a state of extreme uncertainty,” says Catherine Belling, an associate professor at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, who studies the role of fear and anxiety in health care.

course, there are very good reasons to be concerned about this virus.

More than 3,000 people have already died around the world, and the horrors that we have seen elsewhere on the globe are starting to happen here.

And with each startling headline, the level of anxiety is going to go higher.

All of a sudden, large numbers of Americans are extremely afraid to touch each other or anything around them.  The following comes from a Washington Post article entitled “Coronavirus anxiety is everywhere, and there is no cure”

America this week began to consider the existential threat of a doorknob. The horror of a touch-screen in the self-checkout lane. The inescapable doom that accompanies any trip on public transportation. The realization of how much, exactly, we all touch our faces each day: constantly.

Last week, you pressed elevator buttons with abandon. You weren’t afraid of the free weights in the gym. You washed your hands for barely enough time to say “Happy Birthday” once, let alone sing it twice.

This outbreak has already radically altered the behavior of millions of Americans, and we are probably still only in the very early chapters.

Fear of this virus is also causing many of us to stockpile supplies like crazy.  Just check out the following numbers from Nielsen

Fears about a worsening coronavirus outbreak have led shoppers in the U.S. and other hard-hit countries to begin stocking up on supplies to fill “pandemic pantries,” a new report from Nielsen suggests.

Sales of sought-after hand sanitizers have risen 73% in dollar value in the four weeks ending Feb. 22, compared with the same period in 2019, Nielsen says. Similarly, medical masks sales spiked 319%, aerosol disinfectants rose 47% and thermometers increased 32%.

If this outbreak continues to intensify, it is inevitable that shortages will begin to emerge.

So if there is something that you need to purchase, you should go get it as soon as you can.

Each new day brings more shocking revelations.  On Wednesday, we found out that the number of confirmed cases in New York has risen to 11

Another family in New York has been confirmed to have the coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted this afternoon.

The family from New Rochelle is believed to have been in contact with the 50-year old attorney, who has since been hospitalized. The attorney and his family were confirmed to have the virus earlier today.

This brings the total number of confirmed cases in New York to 11.

Sadly, Governor Cuomo is expecting many more cases to pop up, and he told the press that trying to contain this virus “is literally like trying to stop air”

“This is literally like trying to stop air, because somebody sneezes, it’s respiratory and it’s inevitable that it will continue to spread,” Cuomo told reporters Wednesday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Cuomo said there “were going to be many, many people who test positive.”

On the other coast, six new cases were just confirmed in Los Angeles

As the U.S. death toll hit 11 Wednesday, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and county officials declared states of emergency and announced six additional cases of the deadly coronavirus that has health officials around the world scrambling for answers.

More than 130 cases have been confirmed across the nation. Los Angeles had confirmed just one before Wednesday’s announcement.

Alarmingly, one of the newly confirmed cases was a medical screener at LAX

A medical professional who conducted passenger screenings at Los Angeles International Airport tested positive for the coronavirus late Tuesday, according to the Department of Homeland Security and an internal email obtained by NBC News.

The person last worked screening air travelers for illness on Feb. 21, DHS said in a statement, which also said the medical professional had worn the proper protective gear while working. The internal email described the person as a “contract medical screener” for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Just like we have seen in China, medical professionals in the western world are catching COVID-19 despite attempting to take proper precautions.

That just underscores how easily this virus passes from person to person.

As this outbreak continues to intensify, it is probably inevitable that some pretty extreme measures will be taken to get it under control.

In fact, we are already seeing college basketball games get canceled

Chicago State became the first Division I men’s basketball program to cancel games due to the coronavirus outbreak, announcing on Tuesday the decision not to travel to Seattle University on Thursday or Utah Valley on Saturday.

The University of Missouri-Kansas City declared Wednesday the Roos men’s team would not travel to Seattle for its Saturday contest against the Redhawks.

And over in Italy it was just announced that all schools will be closed until mid-March

Italy announced Wednesday it will temporarily close all its schools and universities as the country continues to grapple with a surge in coronavirus infections, according to new reports.

Those closures will begin Thursday and last until mid-March, CNBC reported.

Can you imagine if that happened in the United States?

Of course the kids would love it, and considering the overall quality of the education in our public schools they wouldn’t miss much anyway.

Even before this outbreak started, we were living at a time of great uncertainty, and this virus has certainly taken things to an entirely new level.

We still don’t know if this will become a true global pandemic that will kill millions of people, but many prominent voices are acknowledging that it is definitely a possibility.  The following comes from Piers Morgan

Should it become a global pandemic, as many experts now fear, then the consequences could be devastating. In 1918, the H1N1 ‘Spanish flu’ virus killed between 50-100 million people.

Tech titan Bill Gates, who spends much of his time and money combatting diseases with his charitable foundation, said: ‘In the past week, coronavirus has started behaving a lot like the once-in-a-century pathogen we’ve been worried about.’

If COVID-19 does kill millions of people, it will cause fear on a scale that most of us would not even want to imagine right now.

Thanks to social media, information can spread across the globe in a matter of minutes.  There is no way that global authorities will be able to keep the general public calm if things get bad enough, and health systems in the western world will be absolutely overwhelmed as multitudes of sick people swamp the hospitals.

Let us pray that such a scenario does not materialize.

But for now, the numbers continue to grow at a frightening rate each day, and “coronavirus anxiety” is going to continue to grow right along with those numbers.
