8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Has America really drunk its fill of these five beverage stocks?

6 months ago James Dennin, Kapitall

Consumption of Coke and other soft-drinks is sagging

From James Dennin, Kapitall:

Coca Cola (KO) announced its earnings this week, which revealed more or less exactly what one would have expected: An increasingly health-savvy country is drinking slightly less Coke. However, the consumer giant made up for this by selling more of everything else, particularly bottled water. 

Americans, and the rest of the world, are changing their drinking habits. Not all of it is making us healthier, though.

A big part of the drop in soda sales in the US has been attributed to the rise of energy and sports drinks like Monster (MNST) or Gatorade (PEP). The market as a whole for energy drinks has grown 5000% in the last 15 years. 

It makes sense that Coca-Cola and Pepsi–originally marketed as medicinal beverages for their eye-opening dose of caffeine–would see the biggest downside as the trend plays out. 

We're also drinking a lot more bourbon and whiskey. There's been a number of noteworthy acquisitions in the spirits industry, most notably Beam (BEAM)'s acquisition by the Japanese spirits-maker Suntori. They were likely motivated by the nearly 20% surge in the market for bourbon outside of the US. 

The activity has a number of important takeaways. For one, it shows the increasing importance of an international foothold for beverage makers as taste varies wildly from country to country. India drinks almost half the world's whiskey, for instance. And the average Latin American drinks almost twice as much Coke as the average European.
