Obamacare Is Dampening The Job Market In 3 Principal Ways
For most Americans, Labor Day is an opportunity to take an extra day off of work and enjoy a long weekend with family and friends. But for more than 100 million Americans, Labor Day isn?t a day off from work. That's because two-fifths of the population is either unemployed, or out of the workforce altogether. The U.S. economy is still not back on its feet, six years after the financial crisis of 2008. One big reason is Obamacare, a law that is hampering job growth in three principal ways.

Putin Demands Federalization For Ukraine, But Declares It Off-Limits For Siberia
The very architect of the Russian power-vertical that concentrates all power in the Kremlin demands a ?federalization? of Ukraine that destroys virtually all of Kiev?s central power. When it comes to Russian regions, ?what?s good for the goose is not good for the gander.? If Putin had to share power with the regions, as most other countries do, he would lack the political and economic means to resurrect by force the Russian empire of which he dreams. If you do not believe me, I?ll show you below how Putin?s greatest nightmare ? a federalized Siberia ? would destroy his power vertical.

Inside Mumbai's Taj Mahal Palace Hotel
The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is one of the leading hotels in the world. Located in chaotic Mumbai just outside the British Raj's old Gateway of India on the Arabian Sea, the five story five star hotel was the scene of a shootout between Indian armed forces and terrorist groups in 2008. Today, the hotel is coming back stronger than ever. Here's a look at the property, including Tom Cruise's massage table and Mick Jagger's bedroom; when they're guests, that is.

•  Why Applying to Schools Based on Tuition Prices Can Cost Families Money
Parents comparing college costs would be doing themselves and their kids a huge disservice if they just pay attention to listed tuition prices. What really matters is how much the school will cost you after financial aid and outside scholarships. And frankly some schools offer more scholarships than others. You'd be surprised to see which schools are on the Princeton Review's Best Value Colleges for 2014 list. Harvard, Yale and Princeton which have tuition prices that are multiples of state schools were some of the top picks. Why were schools with high tuition rates included?
"At 65% (97) of the 150 "Best Value" colleges, the average grant to freshmen with need is more than $10,000. Among the top 10 private "Best Value" colleges, the average cost of attendance is about $17,000 after deducting the average grant to students with need. Among the top 10 public "Best Value" colleges, the average cost for in-state students is about $8,400 after deducting the average grant awarded to students with need."
Schools such as Harvard are giving out a ton of scholarships and grants. There are even public schools on the list that giving out a lot of grant money. However, grants numbers from a list of 15o schools are great to look at as a starting point, but what an individual qualifies for based on their financial need and merit varies from college-to-college. How can families figure out what a school will really cost?

•  Avoid These Common Mistakes Made with Student Loan Refund Checks
The universal regret most college graduates with federal student loan debt have is how they spent their student loan refund checks. Student loan refund checks are issued to the student from the remaining amount of a federal student loan after all university costs are paid, generally close to the beginning of each semester. For all students, the amount debited from student accounts includes tuition and fees after scholarships are accounted for and for students living on campus university expenses also include any dorm and meal plan costs. Sometimes the refund checks are thousands of dollars that students might feel is theirs to spend as they please. Problem? The debt is part of their student loan tab and will come due when they have to start repaying their student loans.
