Severe Weather Cost US Economy Estimated $50 Billion
The severe weather that has hit much of the country this winter has cost the economy nearly $50 billion in lost productivity and 76,000 jobs, according to a new survey.
Snow, ice and bitter cold will shave about 0.3 percentage point from economic growth, according to Wall Street economists, fund managers and strategists polled by CNBC.
In an economy with about $15.7 trillion in total output, or gross domestic product, that comes to about $47 billion.
The weather that has made much of the country at times look like it could host the Winter Olympics also hindered labor market growth, partly causing the disappointing government jobs reports in December and January.
The survey respondents estimated storms and cold cost the economy 32,000 jobs in December, 25,000 in January and would reduce payrolls by 19,000 this month.
University of Maryland economist Peter Morici estimated the rough weather, such as the snowstorm that struck Washington, D.C., and much of the East Coast this week, would cost the economy $20 billion to $40 billion.
"The January freeze and crippling storms gripping the eastern United States and upper Midwest are having significant impacts on normal life and commerce," Morici said.
"The country braces for cold and storms each winter, but this year's conditions are more severe than cities and counties customarily prepare to address," he said.
The bad weather was blamed for a 0.4% drop in retail sales in January compared with December.
“Following a solid holiday sales season, it seems that many consumers decided to take a break from the stores and shopping malls this January in an attempt to avoid winter weather,” Mathew Shay, president of the National Retail Federation, said after the Commerce Department reported the disappointing sales figures.
But Morici said that unlike decades ago when lost factory time was difficult to make up, the modern service economy should recoup much of the weather losses in the second quarter of the year.
"Folks that did not buy cars in January and February will purchase those in March and April," he predicted. "Buildings will be repaired and improved, and that adds, not subtracts from GDP.
Participants in the CNBC survey also anticipated a snap back from the winter losses.
The survey found that including lost productivity from December, the winter weather would cost the economy about 0.56 percentage point of growth.
But respondents predicted pent-up demand would lead to a boost to second quarter growth of about 0.23 percentage point, reducing the total economic impact to about 0.3 percentage point.

Workers Strike in Egypt
Workers demand promised minimum wage, unpaid benefits
Thirteen-thousand workers began an open-ended 
sit-in at two state-owned textile factories in 
Mahalla on Monday, demanding promised bonuses 
and the new government-sanctioned minimum 
The workers at state-owned Misr Spinning and 
Weaving and Helwan Spinning and Weaving had 
previously warned Egyptian authorities that they would strike if their bonuses were not paid and if the new government-sanctioned minimum income did not go into effect. They succeeded on Monday in stalling production in the two factories by organizing a sit-in in the company’s headquarters.
Faisal Lacushah, an activist and textile worker in Mahalla, estimated the number of workers at 20,000. He confirmed that meetings are ongoing between the Ministry of Finance, managers of the companies, and the Worker’s Syndicate.
Ibrahim Abdel Fatah, head of the Workers’ Syndicate, blamed ministers within the government, accusing them of neglecting the need for stability in Egypt. The syndicate wrote a letter two months ago to the concerned authorities, warning them of the possibility of a strike.
The workers also have also demanded the resignation of Chairman of the Holding Company for Cotton, Spinning and Weaving Fouad Abdel-Alim Hassan. The workers allege that the company has enough money to pay the new wages and bonuses, pointing out that it has never claimed a lack of finances.
Hassan, who was removed from his position as chairman of the board of directors of the Mahalla factories following a 2007 strike, fired back at the workers, accusing them of wanting to derail the company.
Hassan in turn has blamed the Ministry of Public Enterprise Osama Saleh, who he claimed is in charge of paying the workers.
The workers’ bonuses for two months total EGP 155m. The new government sanctioned the minimum wage at EGP 1,200 a month, while presently there are thousands of workers that earn only EGP 500 a month.
Mahalla workers staged a crippling strike in 2006 to demand bonuses and better wages, which inspired numerous other strikes by factory workers across the country.


11th Annual Polar 
Bear Plunge Planned For Blue Bend
Organizers of the 11th Annual Greenbrier Valley Polar Bear Plunge Club say the charity event for the non-profit Child and Youth Advocacy Center of Lewisburg is set for Saturday, March 8, beginning at 1 p.m at the Blue Bend Recreation Area in the Monongahela National Forest.
Last year, Governor Early Ray Tomblin proclaimed the event a “special West Virginia tradition,” and the plunge was also named a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 event for 2014.
Since 2001, 23o fearless individuals have earned their polar bear membership cards by plunging into the icy waters of Anthony Creek. Last year, 131 kindred spirits helped to raise awareness about child abuse, and the event raised nearly $18,000 for the non-profit Child and Youth Advocacy Center of Lewisburg. The CYAC interviews and counsels sexually abused children in Greenbrier, Monroe, and Pocahontas counties and aids in the prosecution of sex offenders. As always, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the CYAC.
Club members from all across West Virginia and seven separate states, including Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio, have plunged at Blue Bend where water temperatures average about 36 degrees in March. 

Plungers earn their membership cards at the 2013 Greenbrier Valley Polar Bear Plunge. Over 130 members braved the icy cold waters of Anthony Creek last year to raise awareness about child abuse for the Child and Youth Advocacy Center of Lewisburg.

“The psychological fear of the cold water is much greater than actually going in,” Polar Bear Club President and Founder Christian M. Giggenbach, who has plunged in all 10 previous events, said. “But that pales in comparison to the fear that sexually abused children in our area live with every moment of the day. We all jump in to help protect those innocent children.”
New this year will be a flyover by stunt pilot Scott Yoak in his World War II vintage Quick Silver P-51D Mustang. After the plunge, the Half Bad Bluegrass band will entertain in the large shelter in the campground. Many plungers also dress up in their favorite G-rated costumes to win prizes.
Currently, polar bears are roaming the area seeking plunge sponsorships. Businesses may be listed on Polar Bear T-shirts and in the program guide. Plungers who raise at least $25 will receive a polar bear T-shirt. Fundraising packets can be picked up at the CYAC, Little Black Box Lingerie in Lewisburg, or online at Call 304-645-4668 for more details.
“We are deeply appreciative for the plungers, pledgers, businesses and volunteers who make the polar bear plunge a reality,” CYAC Executive Director Ann Weikle said. “Please bring your kids and the whole family to watch the fun and sponsor a plunger.”
The event also includes club members singing the “Ode to Polar Bear” song, the Polar Bear Spirit Award presentation and a giant American Flag hung from the swinging bridge. Past plungers have included Lewisburg Mayor John Manchester, Greenbrier County Sheriff Jan Cahill and retired Navy Rear Admiral Jay Bowling. Plungers are asked to report to the event before noon.
Each year, planners apply for a special use permit from the U.S. National Forest Service which allows the event to occur on federally-owned land.
The Polar Bear Plunge was originally created as a tribute to the club president's late mother, Kay Sweet Giggenbach, who would have been overjoyed at the sight of seeing everyone run into Anthony Creek in such freezing water.
The CYAC's mission is to end child abuse in Greenbrier, Monroe, and Pocahontas counties.

       The Offer 
A millionaire throws a massive party for his fiftieth birthday. During the party, he's a bit bored and decides to stir things up a bit. He grabs the mic and announces to his guests that down in the garden of his mansion he has a swimming pool with two great white sharks in it. He offers anything he owns to anyone who will swim across that pool. 
The party continues for some time with no one accepting his offer, until suddenly there's a loud splash. All the party guests run to the pool to see what has happened, and in the pool a man is frantically swimming as hard as he can. Fins come out of the water and jaws are snapping and the guy just keeps on going. The sharks are gaining, but the guy manages to reach the end and he leaps out of the pool, soaked. 
The millionaire grabs the mic and says, "I am a man of his word, anything of mine I will give--for you are the bravest man I have ever seen. So, what will it be?" the millionaire asks. 
The guy grabs the mic and says, "Why don't we start with the name of the person that pushed me in!"
