I would guess home sales and I am not sure it's even hit bottom yet. Between the ending of the first time home buyers credit and the tightening of credit requirements, not to mention the overall state of the American economy, home sales are in pretty sad shape.

Gold has risen about that much in the last year.

I will go with Beenie and say; home sales.

Take care,
Mike

Very surprisingly (at least for me) the rate of heart disease in the United States dropped by 26% in 2010

Well I must say it is good to hear some positive news for a change! Do ya think that is because people are too poor to eat out, and are cooking their own meals? lol

You're very lucky the Canucks are down here buying up some of the major foreclosure inventory, and spending in restaurants, shops etc.

Without just me and Mrs. Kuki the rate couldunemployment be 1% higher.

We know it's our job to keep at it, so the hard done top 2% of the earners in the U.S. can keep their tax break.

That is an amazing drop of 1 year - statins have been around for 10 years although there are some new ones.

That really bears looking into. Interesting.

Yes, they have been around awhile but more and more people are now taking them. Heart disease has been slowly declining over the past few years and with millions of Americans taking them we will continue to see this affects even more as the years go by. Hopefully people have learned to eat a more sensible diet along with statins.

This is a good/bad thing for me.

I make a living off heart disease!

Its good that folks are getting it taken care of but bad for the cardilogists and surgeons who fix the mess.

Sadly, I don't think you have to worry. Think there's still plenty of heart disease to keep you busy. Though you might want to get more experience in lap bands
