it presumably would have been worth nothing if the government had let the firm declare bankruptcy and the global economy implode Greenbergs complaint that the government unconstitutionally seized his propertyand that AIG was entitled to the same bailout terms as much less troubled banks that posed much less of a threat to global financial stabilityshould have been laughed out of court That said its important to recognize that while AIGs shareholders didnt lose everything they lost an unimaginable amount of money AIG stock plummeted from a high above $150 a share to less than $5 the day of the bailout The government then took over 799 percent of the company further diluting the value of each share And when AIG needed more help there was even more dilution In his memoir Stress Test Geithner recalls how at a time when the country wanted his head for being too gentle with AIG Greenberg visited him to complain that the Fed had been overly harsh by taking so much equity in AIG "I told him we hadnt done the deal to make money and wed be happy to sell him back some of the equity if hed be willing to take some of the risk" Geithner recalled Greenberg wasnt willing so taxpayers rather than shareholders enjoyed most of the upside of AIGs recovery I helped Geithner with Stress Test so Im biased but I think Greenbergs pique is silly; there wouldnt have been any upside for anyone if the government hadnt stabilized AIG and the rest of the system At the same time I think the terms of the AIG bailout were legitimately tough on investors who made bad bets on a reckless firm They were certainly tougher than the terms of the broader Wall Street bailout known as TARPand some bankers complained bitterly about TARPs terms which were intended to be (and were) tough enough to encourage banks to pay them back as quickly as possible All of the bailouts were designed to balance the need to quell the panic in the markets and pave the way for economic recovery with the need to protect taxpayers They ultimately did both The larger point so often missed in the post-crisis too-big-to-fail debate is that the lavish Wall Street bailouts did not shield all of Wall Street from pain Critics of the bailouts often say they sent a message that you could invest in Wall Street behemoths without risk that government would cover all your losses when markets turned sour Its amazing this even needs to be said six years after a financial shock five times as large as the shock that preceded the Great Depression but thats simply wrong Some of the jerks in suits took baths Main Street bore the brunt of the pain and thats not fair but there was plenty of pain on Wall Street too Lehman Brothers disappeared; its shareholders were wiped out and its executives all lost their jobs Investors in Bear Stearns Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Countrywide Washington Mutual Wachovia Citigroup Bank of America GMAC and other firms that got sucked into the crisis took baths too Very few of the big Wall Street CEOs kept their jobs after the bubble burst although some were fortunate enough to cash out their stock before the house of cards toppled completely Some savvy investors have taken advantage of the misfortunes of others; David Tepper a hedge fund manager made billions by buying bank stocks after the market hit bottom in March 2009 essentially betting on the success of the government rescue plans But markets always have winners and losers; the bailouts did help some of the losers limit their losses but they didnt change that essential capitalist truth The even larger point which should also be clear but most definitely isnt is that the Wall Street bailouts were not designed to enrich Wall Street They were designed to protect Main Street from a Wall Street cataclysm The goal was to prevent enough financial failure to stem the panic and lay the groundwork for recovery The goal was achieved Main Street was losing 800000 jobs a month during the panic; now its gaining more than 200000 jobs a month Yes Wall Street has enjoyed an even healthier recovery But punishing Wall Street during the panic would not have made things better for Main Street now; it would have accelerated the panic which would have been devastating for Main Street So we should mock the gall of the litigants who are suing the fire department that saved their homes Still we can recognize that some of their furniture got wet Contact us at editors@timecom without his client’s knowledge, His initial court appearance is scheduled for Thursday morning. has revealed .

barrels crude oil theft that some chieftains of the People’s Democratic Party and some top NNPC officials were the actual brain behind the dealthat were also used for the movement of the crude were arrested used for on June 21 when the vessel was impounded with the oil However it was gathered that two out of the vessels were said to be owned by two PDP top members Meanwhile the suspects have equally mentioned some top NNPC officials and other ships that were involved in the theft French ship was impounded on June 21 for allegedly stealing 500000 barrels of crude on every working day starting from June 9 till the day the suspects were arrested with the said crude The Director of Naval Information Commodore Kabiru Aliyu had confirmed on Friday that the impounded ship had been taken to the Port Harcourt anchorage A member of the naval special squad which impounded a ship had confirmed on Wednesday that the Presidency had demanded for a report on the matter The source said “The President is interested in the matter because of the increasing theft of crude oil “Anytime from now there will be a meeting involving the Petroleum Resources Minister Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke and top security officials This matter cannot be swept under the carpet “Six more suspects have been arrested and two NNPC and two oil marketers have been declared wanted now “We are making progress in our investigation The suspects had named four other ships that were involved in the illegal bunkering In fact they said two of the ships are owned by two top politicians in the country” He however claimed that no crude oil was discovered in the ship “The various storage tanks of the vessel were sounded to confirm products on board However no petroleum product was found on Vannesaa” Macklemore

catch their North American tour starting May 25 in Vancouver This article originally appeared on Ewcom Contact us at editors@timecomNearly eight years ago then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stood on the floor of his chamber and delivered an angry invective against what he saw as the Obama Administration’s rampant spending something he described as a national catastrophe “The kind of spending and debt that Democrats are engaged in” he said with gravitas “is like nothing this country has ever seen And it threatens not only the livelihoods of our children: it threatens our national security and the very safety net Democrats claim they want to protect” On Thursday evening Congress steeled itself for the second government shutdown in less than three weeks with Sen Rand Paul of Kentucky taking to the Senate floor to delay a crucial vote on a government spending package hours ahead of the deadline Paul is arguably the Senate’s fiercest deficit hawk and his point was simple: the party of austerity was no longer The package in question would drastically raise tight spending caps imposed in 2013 hiking defense and non-defense spending by more than $300 billion over the next two years And this is paltry compared to the $15 trillion cost of the GOP’s tax reform bill which they rammed through Congress in December “Its not a conservative spending proposal In fact its the opposite” Paul told TIME in the Capitol basement on Thursday morning “When Democrats are in power Republicans appear to be the conservative party and when Republicans are in power there is no conservative party” Grumbling Republican staffers denounced Paul’s floor speech which went on for nearly an hour and included numerous posters illustrating government waste as little more than political theater But it seems difficult to disagree with his conclusion: that the party of deficit hawks and small government only cares about the debt and the deficit when Democrats are in power The new spending deal is the result of bipartisan talks between McConnell who is now the Senate’s Majority Leader and his Democratic counterpart Sen Chuck Schumer and the culmination of years of bitterness about the austerity policy passed in 2013 that culled government spending by tens of billions of dollars Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has urged his members to vote for the bill On the one hand it’s a feat of bipartisanship in a Congress defined by anything but: Republicans control both chambers and the White House for the first time in a decade and Democrats have very much been relegated to their minority status on crucial legislative issues like tax reform and immigration On the other it marks an abandonment of long-stated principles from those Republicans who railed repeatedly against the climbing debt and deficit during the Obama years Only a small bloc of fiscal conservatives among them Paul appeared willing to speak out against the caps deal on Thursday “Any person in the Milky Way who cares about fiscal responsibility has to be concerned about the deficit contribution of this bill” Republican Sen John Kennedy of Louisiana said “And it does bother me But there are a lot of good things in it I feel like I have to choose between love and honor here and I dont know how Im going to vote” But most rank-and-file members were evasive when approached about the caps deal’s impact on the debt and deficit turning to boilerplate talking points to avoid the topic “We’re trying to get the government going again” Republican Sen Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said “We’re trying to start legislating” “I believe what we did with tax reform is going to grow our economy” Republican Sen Richard Burr of North Carolina said when asked about the deal “That’s not true” Republican Sen John Cornyn of Texas said when asked if the GOP is no longer the party of austerity “We’re the party that wants to see the budget balance and deficit addressed But 70% of federal funding is on autopilot and sometimes you have emergencies disasters and things like rebuilding the military so they’re ready to fight the next war or keep the peace” However Cornyn described the caps agreement reached behind closed doors between only party leadership as “a lousy way to do business” “You get this big ugly caps deal which denies the rank and file members the opportunity for input and doesn’t have the kind of transparency that we’d like to see” Cornyn said “But this is the hand we’ve been dealt” Still nothing was certain on Thursday afternoon with less than 12 hours to go before the government shutdown deadline Though the bill was expected to pass the Senate its future was uncertain in the House Democrats in the lower chamber seemed prepared to withhold their votes to strong-arm House Republican leadership into giving them a commitment on an immigration compromise a strategy that evokes their Senate colleagues’ tactic that led to the last government shutdown

the US: By some estimates as many as 67% of people experience shoulder discomfort at some point over the course of their lives The most mobile joint in your body the shoulder is made up of bones held in place by muscles tendons and ligaments They’re all designed to work together to allow the shoulder to move freely in many different directions This allows you to do everything from raising your arms over your head to throwing a baseball and scratching your back “Unfortunately this mobility comes at the expense of stability” and that leaves the shoulder vulnerable to injury says Clifford Stark DO medical director of Sports Medicine at Chelsea in New York City Factor in the wear and tear of everyday life and its easy to see why you’re shouldering so much pain You’ll need to consult your doctor for a formal diagnosis of your shoulder pain That visit will include a physical exam and possibly an X-ray MRI or ultrasound or you may even be referred for physical therapy right off the bat Dr Stark says Read on to learn about some of the many reasons why your shoulder might hurt and how to find relief Rotator cuff tendonitis Of all the reasons you can have shoulder pain injury to your rotator cuff is the most commonin a recent study two-thirds of people with shoulder pain had a rotator cuff problem A group of muscles and tendons that attach to the bones of the shoulder joint the rotator cuff keeps the ball of your upper arm bone centered in your shoulder socket and also helps you raise and rotate your arm Doing the same motion over and over again can lead to inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons also called tendonitis which can cause shoulder pain “The rotator cuff is like a tirewith aging or frequent use it gets thinner and thinner and eventually wears down” says Robert Gotlin DO a sports and spine physician in NYC and an associate professor of rehabilitation medicine and orthopedics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai With tendonitis shoulder pain and weakness are often mild at first and only noticeable when you move the joint; after a while they can become more severe and occur all the time Rotator cuff tendonitis often gets better with a change in activities to avoid provoking pain so the tendon can heal “There’s a fine line between doing too much and doing too little” says Dr Stark “You don’t want to lift weights but it’s okay to do things that don’t aggravate it” Ice or heat to the shoulder and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and naproxen can reduce pain as well Your doctor may also refer you to a physical therapist for manual therapy and strengthening exercises to keep your muscles moving and to challenge weaker muscles Rotator cuff tears It’s also possible to partially or completely tear a shoulder tendon either from repetitive motion or from direct trauma like a fall The pain of an acute tear one that happens suddenly can be excruciating But shoulder pain weakness and stiffness of a chronic tear worsen slowly over timeso you often don’t notice when they begin RELATED: Everything You Need to Know About Runner’s KneeEven If You’re Not a Runner Rest ice or heat and NSAIDs may help heal rotator cuff tears But your doctor will likely suggest physical therapy to strengthen your shoulder muscles and improve the mechanics of the shoulder joint as well as provide exercises to do at home “Your tires will last you a lot longer if your alignment and shocks are good and the exact same thing is true of the shoulder” says Dr Stark Cortisone (steroid) injections which give temporary pain relief so you can strengthen your muscles or surgery may also be required Frozen shoulder This injury is exactly what it sounds like says Dr Stark “People with frozen shoulder come in with severe stiffness and inability to move their shoulder the way they normally would with varying levels of shoulder pain” Medically known as adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder results when the connective tissue that lines your shoulder joint becomes thickened and inflamed Precisely why this happens isn’t known nor is the reason why middle-age women are especially prone to frozen shoulder There are other factors that can put you more at risk of the condition For instance up to 20% of people with diabetes develop frozen shoulder and people with thyroid problems or Parkinson’s disease may also be vulnerable to this type of shoulder pain You don’t just wake up with frozen shoulder though Doctors break the progression into three stages: “freezing” “frozen” and “thawing” “Over time you’ll notice a decrease in your range of motion and then all of a sudden it escalates” says Dr Gotlin Most people get better without treatmenteventually It usually takes about 18 months for a frozen shoulder to completely thaw “You can cut it down a few months with physical therapy but it will still last a while” says Dr Gotlin Since some people wind up with a frozen shoulder on the opposite side as well doctors often treat the good side too just to keep it moving Shouler bursitis Got deep achy soreness that feels hot and swollen Chances are you have shoulder bursitis an inflammation of the bursa a fluid-filled sac that provides a smooth surface for muscles and bones to glide over “If you have two muscles aligned side by side and there isn’t something between them to reduce friction they wouldn’t move” explains Dr Gotlin Normally these sacs which are found in joints throughout the body are filled with a small amount of fluid Sometimes though when you overdo it (say by throwing a ball or lifting something over your head repeatedly) the body responds by bringing more fluid to the bursaand the swelling that influx produces is what’s known as bursitis “A bursa is like a balloon that’s practically flat and bursitis is the balloon being filled up with lots of water” says Dr Gotlin RELATED: 13 Causes of Leg Crampsand How to Stop Them The pain from bursitis is typically on the outside of your shoulder and it’s made worse when using your arm above your head Treatment is usually rest ice or heat and pain relievers but your doctor may recommend physical therapy to stretch or strengthen the shoulder muscles and increase range of motion and/or cortisone injections to reduce inflammation Labral tears It’s not unusual to hear about pro athletes suffering tears to the labrum a thin rim of soft cartilage that surrounds the edge of the shoulder socket and helps keep the shoulder stable yet mobile But these tears are a common injury in regular folks too Indeed probably half of middle-age men and women have some sort of labral tear from years of using their arms says Dr Gotlin Often you won’t even be aware you have one since some tears are completely asymptomatic and cause no problems But others can trigger shoulder pain specifically when moving your arm in an overhead motion or across your chestsay to scratch your left shoulder with your right arm There are several types of labral tears and treatment depends on the severity of the injury For instance if the labrum is still attached to the socket and just frayed rest NSAIDs and physical therapy usually help relieve pain; however because these tears typically don’t completely heal the problem can flare up again If the labrum is fully detached surgery is usually required Shoulder impingement You don’t even have to know what impingement means to know it’s something you don’t want to getthe word itself sounds like trouble Shoulder impingement often occurs after repeated overhead activity like swimming Shoulder tendons and bursa get impinged or pinched between the bones of the shoulder which makes it painful to move your arm Various positions including overhead motion reaching back or lying on the affected side may all worsen the symptoms RELATED: Joint Pain These 8 Conditions Could Be to Blame Shoulder impingement can weaken the rotator cuff so physical therapy is key to alleviating this pain and preventing further damage “Since one of the main jobs of the rotator cuff is to stabilize the joint any weakness to it will lead to further impingement creating an ever-vicious cycle” says Dr Stark Properly strengthening these muscles and balancing all the muscles and tissues that affect the position of the shoulder effectively can relieve the impingement Osteoarthritis Sometimes called degenerative joint disease osteoarthritis (OA) stems from ordinary wear and tear on the shoulder joint The condition destroys the firm rubbery cartilage that acts as a cushion between the bones and helps them to glide smoothly against each other As the cartilage breaks down and the bones of the joint rub against each other shoulder pain and swelling can limit your range of motion For instance it may become difficult to lift your arm to brush your hair or reach up to a shelf Sometimes you’ll hear a grinding clicking or snapping sound as you move your shoulder RELATED: 13 Natural Remedies for Arthritis Most people get relief from rest or a change in activities to avoid provoking pain heat or ice NSAIDs and physical therapy exercises to both stretch and strengthen the muscles to help support the joint and improve its range of motion Your doctor may also recommend steroid injections Shoulder instability By design shoulders are unstableit’s what allows them to move in so many ways But the term “instability” is also a diagnosis that’s given when the shoulder hurts because the ball of the joint is too loose and is able to slide around too much in the socket Chronic strain and worsened instability can occur when an already loose shoulder is overused especially if the use is repeatedly challenging the ligaments that help hold the shoulder in the socket says Dr Stark “We see this a lot in the throwing athlete swimmer or volleyball playersomeone who uses their shoulder a lot through its full range of motion” Instability is a likely cause of shoulder pain in younger people especially if it comes on with certain sports because wear-and-tear conditions like rotator cuff tears and arthritis tend to occur with age Rest heat or ice and NSAIDs can help control pain and swelling But the key fix for instability is physical therapy to strengthen the muscles that assist in keeping the ball of the joint in the socket This will improve stability of the shoulder and allow your joint to move more smoothly Dislocated shoulder Shoulder instability exists on a continuum and on the extreme end is complete dislocation or when the ball of the joint becomes so loose it actually comes out of the socket It’s also possible to partially dislocate your shoulder called subluxation which occurs when the shoulder almost slips completely out of the socket but then pops back in With subluxation people often notice that their shoulder feels loose and slips in certain positionsoften when their arm is raised over their head Both subluxation and dislocation can also result from trauma such as a fall or blow that occurs with enough force to overpower the strength of the muscles and ligaments of the shoulder If your shoulder dislocates it’s important to seek medical help: As tempting as it may be to let someone place the bone back in the socket (once a dislocation is “reduced” the severe pain stops almost immediately) an X-ray to rule out a fracture is a must “Even if you know what you’re doing you can sever a nerve with a piece of sharp bone” says Dr Stark Your doctor will return the ball of the joint to the socket then control the residual pain and swelling with rest NSAIDs and possibly cortisone injections You may also have your shoulder immobilized in a sling for a few weeks Physical therapy is also usually required to regain full use of your arm In some cases surgery to tighten loose ligaments is necessary Fractured collarbone Breaks in the collarbone (aka clavicle) one of the main bones in the shoulder are fairly commonthey account for about 5% of all adult fractures according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons This type of break usually occurs with trauma like when you fall onto your shoulder or your outstretched arm If your shoulder hurts due to traumayou fell on it or you hear a pop while working outsee a health care provider right away says Dr Stark Some injuries won’t heal correctly if they’re not tended to within a certain amount of time Fractured collarbones can snap just slightly or into many pieces In either case the broken pieces of bone may line up straight or be far out of place A broken collarbone is very painful and makes it difficult to move or lift your arm RELATED: Heat or Ice Which to Use for Back Pain Pulled Muscles and More Treatment will depend on the break: “Some collarbone fractures can heal with rest but others require much more aggressive treatment” says Dr Stark If the ends of the bone have not significantly shifted out of place a simple sling may be all that’s needed to position your arm and shoulder during healing If the broken ends of the bones have significantly displaced you may need surgery Whether you require surgery or not it can take several months for your collarbone to heal and physical therapy to maintain or restore movement and strength will be necessary Neck pain To help pinpoint the cause of your shoulder pain your doctor will usually take your medical history do a physical exam and ask a whole host of questions about your shoulder pain including: When did you first start experiencing shoulder pain what makes it better or worse have you ever injured your shoulder and is the shoulder pain associated with any neck pain People often have shoulder pain that’s actually stemming from the upper back or neck area; in fact this overlap is so common its sometimes referred to as “shneck” pain Heart attack Left arm pain or shoulder pain can be a symptom of an impending heart attackthe shoulder can begin to hurt as a result of the pain radiating from the chest If you think you’re having a heart attack (other symptoms include tightness or pressure in the chest area sweating and nausea) seek immediate medical attention How to prevent shoulder pain The best way to manage shoulder pain is to avoid it in the first place “As computer and cell phone use continues to climb posture problems follow and they dramatically increase the risk of shoulder injuries” says Dr Stark To help keep tech-related shoulder pain at bay raise your mobile device to eye level rather than tilting your chin down to scroll and text and be sure to place your computer monitor at eye level RELATED: 6 Ways Your Mobile Devices Are Hurting Your Body Another factor in shoulder pain: Many people only exercise the muscles they see in the mirror and this can create an imbalance that pulls the shoulder and other structures forward contributing to injury It’s crucial to balance this out by strengthening the muscles of the back and maintaining flexibility all around says Dr Stark This article originally appeared on Healthcom Contact us at editors@timecomLike any new parent 33-year-old Melissa Knobloch wants to keep close watch over her child To that end the Harrisburg Penn native downloaded a handful of apps that track her 10-week-old son’s eating habits sleep patterns diaper changes and more The result of all that data says Knobloch was information overload So she deleted many of the apps but held on to her bedside video monitor and motion detector The latter device is meant to alert a parent if their sleeping child is still too long a tool for preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS "Its more about peace of mind now" says Knobloch of her use of digital parenting aids Millions of people track the number of steps they take in a day or the quality of their sleep with devices from companies like Fitbit and Apple Some go much further keeping precise measurements of their food intake mood and even surrounding air quality as part of the “quantified self” movement The aim of the data-trackers is often to use their autobiographical output to better understand their bodies and improve their physical and mental performance But fitness tracking devices have long been aimed at adults until recently New baby-minded gadgets are helping parents like Knobloch track every bit of data generated by their offspring The result Today’s children could be the first generation to be tracked throughout their lives as parents turn to digital devices to ensure their offspring’s safety and proper development Take Mimo for example The Boston-based company makes a movement and sleeping monitor in the form of a washable crib sheet as well as an activity monitor for infants The company’s aim is to assist parents who can often feel overloaded by the daunting task of raising a young child "The one thing were trying to do for parents is help them get better sleep" says Mimo CEO Dulcie Madden Another example: Cocoon Cam a baby monitor that keeps track of children’s heart and respiratory rates temperature and activity levels Parents can watch their kids’ data along with an audio and video feed in real-time on their smartphone Siva Nattamai the company’s Chief Operating Officer and co-founder says respiration tracking is one of Cocoon Cam’s more popular features It’s also the one he personally wanted most when his daughter now two years old was born “What were trying to do is basically do all of the analyzing for you and tell you that your baby is fine it slept for eight hours at night theres nothing to worry about and that this is normal given the statistics of babies that we know about” says Nattamai A vastly different approach comes from VersaMe which created the wearable word-tracking device Starling Rather than tracking a baby’s internal metrics Starling records the number of verbal exchanges between children and their parents or caretakers The company claims that resulting data can help parents get an idea of whether they’re speaking and engaging with their children in a meaningful way Together the goal of these devices is to provide some peace of mind for parents that their child is safe or developing normally (though none are substitutes for regular visits to the doctor) Consider them the modern high-tech interpretation of the bedside walkie-talkie which helped parents of the past keep an ear out for crying or other signs of distress Still experts like Dr Wendy Sue Swanson executive director of digital health at Seattle Childrens Hospital caution that over-tracking can be a problem of its own as it was for Knobloch She says that it’s unclear if pediatricians will benefit from seeing the data collected by some of these devices for instance (Adults who bring their Fitbit data to physicians might have the same problem) She also cautions that infant wearables should “augment” parenthood not replace it “We’re in the infancy of these infant trackers” says Swanson But that doesn’t mean these devices are useless For Knobloch the secret was finding the right mix of parenting tech that help her keep tabs on her newborn without adding to her stress levels "It really helps me kind of reflect at the end of the day as a new mom and say Okay youre doing this right’” says Knobloch "It was good to reflect back and see that hes sleeping You do wind up second-guessing
