Off the Grid: 5 "Right Side" U.S. Cities That'll Surprise You
America is a big place. By area, we sit at number four in the world. By population, we are number three. The U.S. ranks second (after France) as the most visited nation, but first in terms of time and money spent. In other words, there’s a lot to see and do here. Which is why more than 70 million international tourists (and millions more Americans) descend upon popular places such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Orlando and Las Vegas each year. All deserving spots, no question. But if you want to experience something a little more enigmatic, consider one of these “right side” American cities. Pastemagazine.com

Congress Passes 34th Short-Term Funding Patch For Highways
WASHINGTON -- The Senate on Thursday passed legislation funding the nation's highways, bridges, and roads for another three months -- one day before construction across the U.S. would have come screeching to a halt. The bill, which provides an extension to the Highway Trust Fund until Oct. 29, is the 34th short-term patch passed by Congress since 2009. Short patches to the fund make it harder for states to plan ahead on major transportation projects, and prolong maintenance to damaged roads and bridges. Huffington Post

The Confederate Flag Is Going Out of Business
The horrific June massacre of nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, by a gunman with a fondness for the Confederate battle flag galvanized public opinion against the symbol, resulting in its removal from the state capitol grounds after years of controversy. The perception of the flag as symbolic of racist hate seemed to gain traction against the competing view of it as a benign emblem of Southern heritage. Slate

The great equalizer
Just 30 years ago, the idea of having a computer at your desk was laughable. Ten years ago the term "mobile applications" wasn’t in our vocabulary. And merely five years ago, the notion of "cloud computing" was reserved for high-tech research facilities. Mashable.com

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Urban areas have all kinds of assets that are easy to spot. They have the population, so the labor shed is not usually an issue. Urban areas are also connected by better roads, rail and air service and many have river and deep water ports. Usually Internet access and other forms of communication are more efficient in urban areas. And you have a larger array of quality of life options to choose from, such as the cultural assets found in metropolitan areas.

By Stacy Randle
Demographer Wendell Cox recently analyzed the largest gains in holders of bachelor's and post-graduate degrees between 2007 and 2012 in the 51 metro regions in the U.S. of 1 million residents or more. The results were published in Forbes magazine and the South dominated the ranking.

After I finished the cover story for this issue, I read an interesting article by economist Paul Krugman, the op-ed columnist for the New York Times, titled, "Partying like it’s 1995." Generally I side with Krugman, even though I am a journalist, not an economist. Occasionally, though, I read some of his stuff and ask myself, "What planet did Krugman come from?" Like when he predicted a shift of automotive assembly to Canada after Toyota announced a new plant in Woodstock, Ontario in 2005 because of "free healthcare," among other benefits. That Toyota deal was the last major automotive assembly plant announced in Canada and I predict it will be the very last one for the Canadians.

If you have ever seen one of my presentations, then you know about the word "reshoring" and how that phenomenon has lifted the spirits of even the most skeptical Southerners regarding the future of the region's economy. After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
