DAILY JOB CUTS I like this website. This is the first one i have seen that focuses on the job situation with actual on the ground reporting. This is similar to the "Gas Buddy" website which relies on consumer reporting to update the nationwide prices of gas. Instead of gasoline prices this specializes in people reporting jobs lost in various places across the country. Billed as "Your source for Daily Job News".

WORLD CATASTROPHE MAP I think this website was intentionally shut down by it's owners for a short while, and now they have resumed publication. Their motto is: "LET THE END TIMES ROLL!".
►The CatMap Editorial Board collectively believes that the evolutionary assets of the humammal species are leading to a cataclysmic and accelerating deterioration of the habitat (Earth) and a precipitous population decline related to that deterioration. At one point in time, destruction of our habitat was avoidable and reversible, but now it appears to be unstoppable. The Editorial Board would prefer this not be the case. We would love to have maybe just a few wild tigers and elephants alive in 20 years and even delay the Sixth Great Extinction for a while. We would be thrilled simply to maintain what's left of the astounding and beautiful diversity of flora and fauna on this planet. If we could stop mountains from being leveled, remaining old growth forests from being clear cut and lakes, rivers, and oceans from being used as toilets, that would be super and would most definitely receive the CatMap Editorial Board stamp of Approval. But this is not what's going to happen . . .◄
THE OIL DRUM Even though much of the material presented on this site is highly technical and i admit i do not understand what they are talking about many times, still every once in awhile something will be said that i think i understand and i will learn something. Lots of talk about charts and graphs which totally elude me, but not sure it is important. The best writing on the oil drum is of course the most simply explained so that the broadest audience can understand what is being said. That's my opinion of course.
►Conventional political, economic, and media institutions have yet to recognize energy's role as a key contributor to society, and its importance as a driver for all of our physical processes and economic transactions. The Oil Drum seeks to facilitate civil, evidence-based discussions about energy and its impacts on the future of humanity, as well as serve as a leading online knowledge-base for energy-related topics. Most people are not aware of society's profound dependency on energy and the
magnitude of the problems we may face if energy becomes either too expensive or scarce. Politicians and the traditional media have tended to overlook the these issues, out of ignorance or due to conflicts of interest. We seek to fill this information gap, disseminating under-reported facts and analysis and providing an educational forum for those interested and engaged in energy's role in society. This website is a space where energy issues can be debated in a civil manner. Through the encouragement of evidence-based reasoning, logical arguments and thought provoking exchange, we aim to host discussions with a depth and breadth absent from the traditional media or current political discourse. We believe that the issues such as the timing and impacts of energy supply and demand problems can be explored empirically, in an open and honest manner. Our site marries the fast pace of the internet with the time-tested traditions of peer review in hopes of generating insights and questions that other professionals and decision-makers can take to the next level. The nature of energy impacts vary greatly from country to country. We seek to leverage the open nature of the internet to create a global forum for the discussion of energy problems and solutions wherever these may lie. Your participation is welcome—if not necessary—for the improvement of our energy future. The assemblage of facts on a global scale is a powerful tool to advance understanding of what is a major challenge for humanity.◄
JIM ROGERS BLOG The owner of this blog states: Investment Ideas, Video Interviews And Media Appearances - A Tracking Blog About The Legendary Investor. Even though myself personally i cannot use the investment advice given out by Jim Rogers, he still teaches a lot of good principles to
live by even for a regular person with no money, investment knowledge or know how. And Jim talks a lot about the global situation in regards to many interesting subjects, like agriculture and general world conditions.
A Sample of the kind of things Jim mentions: ►In America, we've had states go bankrupt, cities, counties. This has happened before. It didn't end America, didn't end the US Dollar. You let entities collapse, go bankrupt. This happens all the time. This happened throughout history. That's all you have to do, let them go bankrupt, let the people who made the bad loans take their losses and start over from a sounder base. But just pushing into the future and letting debt go higher and higher will mean it's going to end very, very badly and then you know, five years from now, you may have a complete collapse of the Euro, the European Union and for that matter, all the Western world. - in Reuters◄
