Home - NeoPopRealism Journal13th, a date regarded in many countries as inauspicious, is safer than an average Friday.
A study published on Thursday by the Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) showed that fewer accidents & reports of fire & theft occur when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays.
"I find it hard to believe that it is because people are more careful or just stay home, but statistically speaking, driving is a little bit safer on Friday 13th," CVS statistician Alex Hoen told the Verzekerd insurance magazine.
In the last 2 years, Dutch insurers received reports of an average 7,800 traffic accidents each Friday, the CVS study said. But the average figure when the 13th fell on a Friday was just 7,500.
There were also fewer incidents of fire and theft, although the average value of losses on Fridays 13th was slightly higher.

A World Ocean Day Benefit
anne slaterSeafood canapés, bellinis, & tubs of moisturizer with a $1,300 price tag... Such was the high-end fare at La Mer's Wednesday-night party celebrating World Ocean Day. The beach-themed soirée, set on the Rockefeller Center rooftop, benefited - to the tune of a $100,000 donation - ocean advocacy group Oceana. Despite such boldfaced beauties as Michelle Trachtenberg, Rosario Dawson, & Alek Wek, the most popular girls in the room were two models bearing jars of Crème de la Mer for guests to sample. Rufus Albemarle, rubbing a royally hefty dollop on his face said that that was "a czar-size scoop." Later, the well-moisturized earl caught up with Amber Valletta, an old pal from the nineties party circuit in Milan. He said that he wouldn't say Amber was wild, he'd say she was classically bold. Responded the willowy supe, he wasn't morally compromised then. That came later...

New York: 2008 CFDA AWARDS

fordThe new format—an awards ceremony followed by dinner, rather than the traditional mix of the two—was pretty much a success. Yes, some of the films that introduced the nominees for each award were still too long—though Kate Moss' impersonation of Pratts Price was priceless, and Menswear Designer of the Year Tom Ford's performance as a needy patient to Gabriel Byrne's psychiatrist in a spoof of HBO's In Treatment should put the beleaguered network back on the map—but generally things moved much more quickly than in previous years...

America: A Nation Of Immigrants

usaAmerica is a nation of immigrants, but... an extremist, anti-immigrant movement grows, led by some prominent voices in the media.
Immigration from 1980-2000 raised wages of the average U.S. worker by 2%.
5% of the U.S. workforce is illegal.
Main jobs done by illegal immigrants: farming - 50%; meat & poultry - 24%; dishwashers- 21%; drywall/ceiling tile installers - 7%.
Immigrants raise wages when they fill jobs that Americans don't do, & allow Americans to upgrade their jobs. The more educated an American is, the more he or she benefits from this effect.
1986: "Are great numbers of our unemployed really victims of the illegal alien invasion, or are those illegal tourists actually doing work our own people won't do? One thing is certain in this hungry world: No regulation or law should be allowed if it result in crops rotting in the fields for lack of harvesters." Ronald Reagan.
Illegal immigrants are paying taxes to Uncle Sam, Just how much they pay is hard to determine because the federal government doesn't fully tally it. But the latest figures available indicate it will amount to billions of dollars in federal income, Social Security & Medicare taxes this year. One rough estimate puts the amount of Social Security taxes alone at around $9 billion per year.
"American competitiveness also requires immigration reforms that reflect the importance of highly skilled foreign-born employees. Demand for specialized technical skills has long exceeded the supply of native-born workers with advanced degrees & scientists & engineers from other countries fill this gap..." Bill Gates.
1963: "That Alexis de Tocqueville saw in America was a society of immigrants, each of whom had begun life a new, on an equal footing. This was the secret of America: a nation of people with the fresh memory of old traditions who dared to explore new frontier..." John Kennedy.
