BETTER DAYZ!

We are living in crazy times. High unemployment, high gas rates, crazy weather and war. Sometimes we need some words of encouragement, don't we? Who better else to speak to us then the legendary Tupac Shakur!? Here I compiled a list of inspiring words by the man that went against all odds and changed popular culture forever. Keep your head up!

"Reality is wrong, dreams are for real." 

"You gotta keep your sense of humor. You gotta be able to smile through all this bullshit."

"Just cuz you live in the ghetto doesn't mean you can't grow"

"Get off your ass if you plan to be rich.”

Sandy Damage Estimated at $50 Billion

DAMAGE

Estimates of the economic losses caused by Hurricane Sandy earlier this week reached $50 billion as experts assessed the costs of severe property damage, shut-down subways and power outages.

 

On Thursday, Eqecat Inc. said it expects storm-related losses to fall between $30 billion and $50 billion. Of that, $10 billion to $20 billion will be insured, according to the firm, which calculates estimates for insurers.

 

Earlier this week, Eqecat had said that damages could reach $20 billion, with up to $10 billion in insured losses.

 

Several governors of affected states have declared this week that homeowners will not have to pay hurricane deductibles on insurance claims, reasoning that Sandy was not a hurricane when it made land.

 

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said in a statement that such deductibles typically range from 1% to 5% of a home’s insured value -- up to $15,000 for a house insured for $300,000.

Separately, analysts predict some $500 million in lost advertising revenue due to the storm, according to media research company Pivotal Research Group. That's about 1% of the quarter's revenue for the industry.

Halloween Cancled Thanks to Sandy

Tricked or Cheated?

 

 

Gov. Chris Christie has signed an executive order postponing Halloween celebrations in New Jersey because of "unsafe conditions" resulting from megastorm Sandy.

 

"I've taken this action to minimize additional risks to lives and the public safety as we begin the process of rebuilding and recovering from Hurricane Sandy," Christie said Wednesday. "In too many communities in our state, the damage and losses from this storm are still being sorted out, and dangerous conditions abound even as our emergency management and response officials continue their work. As governor, it is my responsibility to use all available resources of the state government to protect against the emergency created by Hurricane Sandy -- postponing Halloween celebrations by five days is a commonsense and necessary step to accomplish that."

 

Sandy has also caused the cancellation of New York's Greenwich Village Halloween parade, officials said. For the first time in 39 years, a parade that attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists and about $90 million in visitor dollars won't take place, the Los Angeles Times reported.

 

Halloween cancled? Postponed? What gives? Thanks to Sandy aka Frankenstorm, Halloween sucked this year, in more ways then one.
