The federal government has recently eased rules for the HARP refinancing process, and it’s possible that if you haven’t tried to refinance recently, your loan will now be eligible.
Go to HARP.gov, which is the government’s new web site for people who want to refinance and are underwater. The site recommends if you’re turned down for a HARP refinance that you try again.

Calvin Thomas Jr. is delighted his documentary will receive The 2014 Amsterdam Film Festival Van Gogh Award.
But the prestigious award was the last thing on Thomas’ mind when he began shooting a 63-minute documentary, The Trouble with TQ, in 2005. Instead, Thomas’ mind was on the warm three years he spent as an altar boy in the 1970s at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. There, he assisted the Rev. Thomas Quinlan Jr., a controversial Catholic priest Time magazine in 1974 described as “an intense, long-haired, chain smoking Moses.” So, exactly, why would a priest who sparked local headlines, appeared on Phil Donahue, and was barred from celebrating Mass after he retired in 2005 still ignite warm memories?

A new report may say ordinary people’s opinions (only) carry weight every four years during a presidential election – but is it accurate?

In this new report, two political scientists at Princeton and Northwestern say economic elites have “substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.” It sounds plausible. Everybody listens to the rich. That is, until you study the impact ordinary people had after the owner of the Clippers launched a controversy.
