Education

“By next year, an estimated 70% of jobs in Washington State will require some sort of post-secondary credential.”

Mississippi seems to be happy just getting 70% of the children graduated from High School. Tupelo needs a graduate school and research center that employs over 2000 professionals. This does not happen when the state promotes factory workers as an accomplishment. They do not even make the average American wage. The present Tupelo airport would make a good place to build such a University. Move the airport out to farm country.

Mississippi Values

Study shows Mississippi ranks 49th in internet speed for 2019. I am not surprised as the state puts money into sport teams and refuses to value intelligent people that need to exchange knowledge and creative ideas. Ever wonder why so many of our top students leave the state?

Mississippi needs to create and contribute new products to the world stage not just hire share croppers to labor for low wages and corporations that ship the profits to other countries. These growth potentials do not happen with the current Mississippi values.

Again Mississippi Ranks Last on Health

Beyond these death rates, the report looked at 44 other factors that influence a population’s health to determine each state’s ranking.

Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Washington, Connecticut and Vermont ranked the highest (Connecticut and Vermont tied for fifth place in the rankings), while Arkansas, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi received the lowest rankings.

Most of the cost of health insurance reflects people’s personal health habits.

The Same In Mississippi?

Alabama sheriffs who lost reelection in 2018 personally pocketed funds and deleted public records, an investigation by AL.com and ProPublica found. Holes were drilled through government-issued smartphones and leftover rice was poured down the drain, among other things. It’s a longstanding tradition that sheriffs aren’t typically held accountable for.

Lack of morals and ethics is the norm in today’s world regardless if people have a religion. Could education and over population be part of the cause?

Finite Resource Problem

Our hectic, on-demand lifestyles rely upon allocating finite sets of resources to constantly changing numbers of people. As this task grows ever harder, it will require solutions to a little-known mathematical riddle.It’s not easy to accurately predict what humans want and when they will want it. We’re demanding creatures, expecting the world to deliver speedy solutions to our increasingly complex and diverse modern-day problems Over the last few decades, researchers have developed a range of pretty effective mathematical solutions that can allocate resources across a variety of industries and scenarios so they can attempt to keep up with the daily demands our lives place on them. But when an allocation made at one time affects subsequent allocations, the problem becomes dynamic, and the passing of time must be considered as part of the equation. This throws a mathematical spanner in the works, requiring these solutions to now take into account the changing and uncertain nature of the real world and the growing population. If we don’t start to address dynamic resource allocation problems now, we won’t just struggle to get dinner on the table – the entire world could grind to a halt.

The South’s Economy Is Falling Behind: ‘All of a Sudden the Money Stops Flowing’

Policies that once drove the region’s growth—relatively low taxes and low wages that attracted factories and blue-collar jobs—have proven inadequate in an economy where the forces of globalization favor cities with concentrations of capital and educated workers.NATCHEZ, Miss.—The American South spent much of the past century trying to overcome its position as the country’s poorest and least-developed region, with considerable success: By the 2009 recession it had nearly caught up economically with its northern and western neighbors.

That trend has now reversed. Since 2009, the South’s convergence has turned to divergence, as the region recorded the country’s slowest growth in output and wages, the lowest labor-force participation rate and the highest unemployment rate.

The plan to use the education system to make workers has failed to produce creative individuals that work with their minds rather than their bodies. Automation has replaced the low I.Q. worker. Lack of freedoms and liberty has driven the intelligent youth away. All that is left are the serfs.

Comcast

Public utilities are required by laws to provide access to emergency communication if problem arise. Comcast adds 911 charge to the telephone bill so the government does not have to put fire alarm boxes on every corner. The law requires that the utility keep those emergency systems working and if they break down repairs them as fast as possible.

It has come to my attention that Comcast puts its construction work to add more customers ahead of repairing existing services to already paying customers. Customers are paying for emergency service and not having access to it so Comcast can make more money.

The City of Tupelo and the city council have no intentions or ability to make Comcast honor its legal requirements. The City has given exclusive rights to Comcast to be the only cable provider with no competition from companies like C-spire to hard wire a second emergency system. The leaders of the City council enjoy campaign contributions from Comcast to block any completion that will provide better service to the paying public.
