Abstract:
The Triangle has one of the nation’s lowest unemployment rates, registering at about three-percent most months. However, this statistic does not capture the thousands of people who want a job but are discouraged by their personal constraints. Homeless and welfare recipients are also unaccounted for in unemployment statistics.

Abstract:
Many of the latest food fads are scams, but others, such as the fish fad, are riddled with pesticides and pollutants. North Carolinians are more prone to food contaminants due to the state’s farming activity, humid climate, and proximity to the coast. Citizens are advised to take food precautions, and to consider new laws that would encourage organic farming and tax pesticide use.
