[quote]2. Even if they pull off this turnaround, I don't see Love resigning. Volhalla and I disagree on this. Minnesota is probably the least appealing NBA destination right now if you factor in the cold, it being farther away than any other NBA city, and the poor management. It's not hard to turn i...

Love has a good relationship with the Timberwolves but he's frustrated with losing. If the Timberwolves some how turn it around and make it to the finals next year he could resign with them. But that's not going to happen. ...

I don't see how Rubio, Irving, and LeVine can play together. Honestly I think there is a chance Minnesota keeps Love and hopes for a playoff run to convince Love to stay. They weren't far away last year even with bad coaching and a lot of injuries. ...

The past five months show an increase in full time jobs by almost 400,000 and an increase of part-time jobs by almost 700,000. We are up 2,000,000 full-time jobs over June 2013. That's trending in the right direction. You're right that comparing May to June there is a regression. ETA: ...

My bad, I think I was misreading the report. I thought the monthly data was the amount added in that particular month, not the total workforce. Everything seems to be trending in the right direction over the past few months but the June report seems like a regression...

re: That old "with the stimulus, without the stimulus" chart - what's your summation - VOLhalla
The projected unemployment rates both with and without the stimulus were based on CBO predictions that severely underestimated the size of the recession.
