Questions about how Red Cross is spending Haiti relief funds ...
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Fred Sajous, a Haitian earthquake survivor armed with a video camera and a cause, is a man on a mission: to figure out how the American Red Cross spent the $430 million it raised for the disaster. The former Broward Community College student in Florida visited the tent city across the street from the American Red Cross' Petionville headquarters in Haiti. Tent city leaders said they had not received anything from the Red Cross. With the organization's monthly report in hand, he went to a dozen more settlements. "I couldn't find the $106 million," said Sajous, a 29-year-old ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Whether it's talk therapy or drug therapy, getting help for depression or anxiety helps, Americans say. But one appears to work faster, while the other may be more effective. The survey is a snapshot of the common American's experience with mental health therapy � and the second such survey published by Consumer Reports. The 1995 report "has been cited in textbooks and is considered a landmark study with worldwide impact," said Joel Gurin, Consumer Reports executive vice president, in a news teleconference Tuesday. "We think this newest study is just as important," he added. "We hope our study ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Public Deeds: Gigs and Garlands

Ruben Rosario: 'English-only' proponent might try comprehending facts only
There is a wealth of reasons why the fine 19,000-plus residents of Lino Lakes should stand up as one when the proposal to approve or deep-six an 'English-only' city ordinance comes up for debate or a vote July 12. A communal raspberry on this most idiotic and anti-American proposal, in my view, is in order. David Roeser, a businessman and longtime Lino Lakes resident and city council member, drafted the ordinance, he says, as a way to save the city money on alternative-language documents. "It's all about saving money, and we're hoping that it remains there and no one is reading too much into this," ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Cutting Through Housing Red Tape
A single home foreclosure has an impact on more than just one family. It affects the entire community. Each foreclosure depresses the property values of the properties around it, which in turn can force some of those properties into foreclosure. To avoid this damaging ripple effect, I have worked with homeowners facing foreclosure. This past summer, I heard from a Monmouth County couple struggling during the economic downturn. The husband’s income had dropped because many of his clients could not pay their bills, while the wife suffered an accident that left her unable to work at her sales job for almost a year. The value of ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Proposing an official name for an Oregon Hiking exactly ...
What procedure would one conceivably follow in order to propose a hiking trail be named for a person in the state of Oregon? A couple of years ago a man who was instrumental in mapping the hiking trails throughout the Columbia Gorge passed away. He had worked for the Forest Service. Many of the hiking trails are identified only by number. One trail in particular was his favorite and some of his friends and family want to propose naming the trail for him. Trouble is, no one has one clue how this type of thing is accomplished. Do we approach it as a formal proposal and submit it to the State of Oregon? or the Forest service? Can ...
