By Jon Lafayette   jlafayette AddThis Sharing Buttons Share to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreMore133 Cord cutters say they are saving an average of $115 per month, according to a new survey, which also found that within five years more than half of current cable customers doubt they’ll still subscribe to traditional pay TV. At a time when pay-TV subscribers are eroding, the poll, conducted by personal finance website LendEdu, indicates things may not be getting any easier for the traditional TV business. In the poll, 58% of cord-cutters said they cut the cord because their  TV cable subscription was too expensive, 21.2% said they used their cable subscription less because of streaming services and 11.8% said their cable subscription didn’t provide the content they wanted. The survey puts the average cost of traditional pay TV services at $116.93 per month. A smaller number of cord cutters, 4%, said the resented the “greed” of cable companies. The vast majority of cord cutters, 71.6% said they used streaming services before dropping cable. The average cord cutter in the survey had 2.77 streaming subscriptions before cancelling traditional pay TV. The cord cutters said they paid $33.74 per month on streaming before cutting the cord.

That password sharing was saving them about $51.38 per month. Of those subscribing to pay-TV, 79.8% said the subscribed to at least one streaming service.

America is most murderous country in the world by a wide margin. Why?

Why the U.S. is No. 1 — in mass shootings By Melissa Healy Aug 24, 2015 | 3:48 PM Since 1966, mass shootings have occurred in the United States at a rate five times higher than in the Philippines, the country that ranked second in mass shootings, says a new study, which explores why the U.S. so outstrips other countries in such crimes. (David J. Phillip / Associated Press) The United States is, by a long shot, the global leader in mass shootings, claiming just 5% of the global population but an outsized share — 31% — of the world’s mass shooters since 1966, a new study finds. The Philippines, Russia, Yemen and France — all countries that can claim a substantial share of the 291 documented mass shootings between 1966 and 2012 — collectively didn’t even come close to the United States. And what makes the United States such a fertile incubator for mass shooters? A comprehensive analysis of the perpetrators, their motives and the national contexts for their actions suggests that several factors have conspired to create in the United States a potent medium for fostering large-scale murder. Those factors include a chronic and widespread gap between Americans’ expectations for themselves and their actual achievement, Americans’ adulation of fame, and the extent of gun ownership in the United States. Set those features against a circumstance the United States shares with many other countries — a backdrop of poorly managed mental illness — and you have a uniquely volatile brew, the new study says. With those conclusions, University of Alabama criminologist Adam Lankford set out to illuminate the... read more

Why there are so many mixed races couples on TV.

The War Against Black Male/Black Female Relationships – Part 1 Posted: February 19, 2017 in Uncategorized 442 Anyone who watches television or movies or reads magazines should know exactly what this post is about When did black male and black female couples become obsolete? (State Farm commercial of a black male proposing to a white female) I have NEVER ONCE seen a commercial for a jewelry company of a black male proposing to a black female I have watched with increasing dismay the landslide of advertising over the last two years that depicts either one of the following: A dark or brown-skinned black male with a white female (with or without children) A dark or brown-skinned black male with a racially ambiguous or bi-racial female with light skin and curly hair (with or without children) A bi-racial male and female couple A dark or brown-skinned black male alone with children who are obviously bi-racial with light skin and curly hair. Black males who are isolated from other black people and are “best buddies” with white males and females A black female (often a bi-racial female) with a white male (A white male with a bi-racial female) Now, some might say, “Hey, this is racial progress! It’s about ‘diversity.’” BUT if that was true why wouldn’t there be as many black male/black female couples as there are mixed and white couples? Why is it so rare to see a brown or dark-skinned black male with a brown or dark-skinned black female paired in a commercial AS A COUPLE with children who look black? And why are the vast majority of the... read more
