US economy grew at 3.5 percent rate in Q3
mysanantonio.com / Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:10:18 UT
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy grew at a solid annual rate of 3.5 percent in the July-September quarter, propelled by solid gains in business investment, export sales and the biggest jump in military spending in five years. Analysts believe the economy is maintaining momentum in the current quarter, with a big fall in gas prices expected to bolster consumer spending. Business spending on equipment grew at a 7.2 percent rate in the third quarter, and residential construction grew at a 1.8 percent rate. Much of the optimism for the economy going forward stems from the strength of job growth, which has lowered the unemployment rate to a six-year low of 5.9 percent. The additional workers should translate into more income and consumer spending, which accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. [...] they viewed the Fed's statement as a warning that if the economy strengthened more than expected in coming months, rate hikes could start occurring sooner than investors think.

mysanantonio.com / Mon, 1 Dec 2014 13:34:26 UT
For the first time in nearly 100 years, Girl Scouts of the USA will allow its young go-getters to push their wares using a mobile app or personalized websites. There are important e-lessons here, scout officials said, such as better articulating and tracking goals, learning to handle customers and money in a new way, and more efficiently processing credit card information. "A lot of people have asked, 'What took you so long to get online?' We spend a lot of time thinking how do we make this safe, scalable and smart," Kelly M. Parisi, chief communications executive for Girl Scouts of the USA, said at a recent demonstration for select media. For web-based sales, scouts customize their pages, using their first names only, and email prospective customers with links to click on for orders. The mobile platform offers tabs for tracking sales and allows for the sale of bundles of different kinds of cookies. Girl Scouts use their cookie money to pay for community service work or troop activities such as camping and other trips. [...] personal information is as protected as any digits out there, for both the scouts and customers, using encryption in some cases.

Ebola: How it spreads
mysanantonio.com / Sun, 12 Oct 2014 15:04:21 UT
Only when someone is showing symptoms, which can start with vague symptoms including a fever, flu-like body aches and abdominal pain, and then vomiting and diarrhea. The World Health Organization says blood, feces and vomit are the most infectious fluids, while the virus is found in saliva mostly once patients are severely ill and the whole live virus has never been culled from sweat. The Texas Department of State Health Services said Sunday that a health-care worker who provided hospital care for the first patient to die from Ebola in the United States has tested positive for the virus. Hospitals with a suspected case call their health department or the CDC to go through a checklist to determine the person's level of risk.
