The USA has many popular New Year’s Resolutions that most of the population makes year after year. Unfortunately, many of these resolutions are broken early on, during January.

Organized scientific projects join with Research Triangle Park professionals to link the Roanoke Lost Colonists and current descendants of early Native American peoples they met in. Some of the researchers are descendants, themselves.

The Croatan People are not extinct, either. Their descendants live in North Carolina today. 

Evidence has been found in old and new maps of the area, archaeological artifacts, a buried fort on the 42-mile long Hatteras Island, and DNA markers, as well as oral histories of the descendants of mixed marriages among the English and the Croatan and other Native Peoples beginning in the late 1580s.

How will fast food as an industry handle the increase to a $15.00 per hour Federal Minimum Wage?

First off, many will simply close down. Others will limit their menus, offer additional or longer periods of Drive-Thru times and close the dining room early or go to All-Drive-Thru service. and some will raise menu prices too high.

McDonald’s has found that tactics that helped them absorb the 2009 Federal Minimum Wage Increase are not working now. Because of this, the company allegedly plans to eliminate part of its human crew members with robots – but, this is really still a rumor. Those few remaining humans would  be robotics technicians and that is a good thing, since that work requires more skills and a higher salary to go with them.

Will a Phoenix Arizona McDonald’s go all-robot soon? Probably not, but it’s fun to think about. After all, sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke was the first to think up communications satellites (ComSats) and we have them all over the near-Earth cosmos now!

US National Book Festival, Historic Words And Reading Education

From Native American poetry to Classics, songs, and graphic novels, how can we not be proud of America’s literary development? Come celebrate literacy and literature of all sorts in DC this September 5, 2015 from 9am – 10 pm. Free admission!

This year’s festival is a tribute to the 200th Anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s donation of all of his personal papers and books for the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.  During the War of 1912 – 1814, the British burned 3,000 books belonging to the US Congress and took 10,000 American military and civilians captive, jailing them at Dartmoor prison in England. it was a horrible time.

Thomas Jefferson offered his personal library to replace those burned volumes, but it took us until 1815 – a full year after the war was over – to gain the release of all of our prisoners. Today, the British and filks all over the UK came to our National Book festival to speak, to sign books, and to visit the kiosks.

Times change, but books are always good.

Business and Job Trends In Hawaii

In Hawaii, many Maritime, Healthcare, and Skilled Labor types of jobs are available, expanding in numbers, and forecasted by state and federal agencies to open many new positions through the year 2018.

Compared to the Continental USA, Hawaii has experienced more job creation in IT (Information Technology) and Healthcare Industries than the lower 48 states overall. Jobs such as ship engineers are expected to triple in 2014 and long before 2018, with a near-200% increase. Commercial fishing and international trade expansions make these figures even more realistic.

An entertaining TV commerical ends with California’s Maria Shriver and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as he asks, “What are you waiting for? Come on over.” A good reason to think about a move to California is that Sacramento, the Capital City, offers nearly 10,000 new job openings each year, with the other metro areas up and down this West Coast State joining in the job market.
