News That Don't Repeat

I was told by my husband to turn on the t.v and watch FOX News on cable when he heard me one day complaining about the local news keep repeating their news all day 4 times a day. Their stories go on and and and on for the whole week which is very tiring. On Fox News by Hannity or what's the name of that news anchor there talks mostly about politics and I don't like politics to be honest and I never followed what he said.

I better read Yahoo's headlines stories for they have fresh news everyday when I open their page. One interesting news that I find worth sharing are the kinds of jobs that most likely will be lost. If you work one of these industries better be prepared as you can be laid off anytime.

Disappearing Jobs

Here's a list of the top 10 industries expected to lose the most jobs by 2018 -- and what to do if you're working in one of them:

1. Department stores: Projected to lose 10.2 percent of the 1.56 million jobs they had in 2008.
2. Semiconductor manufacturing: Projected to lose 33.7 percent of the 432,000 jobs it had in 2008.

3. Motor vehicle parts manufacturing: Projected to lose 18.6 percent of its 544,000 jobs.

4. Postal service: Projected to lose 13 percent of the 748,000 jobs it had in 2008.

5. Printing and related jobs: Projected to lose 16 percent of its 594,000 jobs.

6. Cut-and-sew apparel manufacturing: Projected to lose 57 percent of its 155,000 jobs.

7. Newspaper publishers: Projected to lose 24.8 percent of its 326,000 jobs.

8. Mining support jobs: Projected to lose 23.2 percent of its 328,000 jobs.

9. Gas stations: Projected to lose 8.9 percent of its 843,000 jobs.
