WASHINGTON – (PRNews) – The nation's poverty rate was 15.5 percent in 2013, down from 16.0 percent in 2012, according to the supplemental poverty measure released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The 2013 rate was higher than the official measure of 14.5 percent, but similarly declined from the corresponding rate in 2012.
Meanwhile, 48.7 million were below the poverty line in 2013 according to the supplemental poverty measure, not statistically different from the number in 2012. In 2013, 45.3 million were poor using the official definition released last month in Income and Poverty in the United States: 2013.
The a cappella choir of Wiley College will be in concert this fall at Metropolitan Baptist Church, 767 Walker Ave., at 10 a.m. during the church’s morning worship service, and again at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 60 South Parkway East, at 4 p.m. for George Washington Carver High School. The tour begins Nov. 9.
This is the 5th annual concert benefiting the high school. The evening program will honor the Carver Class of ’64, which will be celebrating their 50th anniversary. Also, as an extra added highlight this year, Carver’s contributions to Stax Records, along with some special guests, will be recognized.
Less than half of small-business owners said they would take a summer vacation lasting at least one week in 2013. Many self-employed individuals are reluctant to take time off because they worry about disappointing clients, missing opportunities, or losing income while they are away.
Unfortunately, working too hard and waiting too long between vacations may not be good for your health or the future of your business. One long-term cardiovascular study reported a link between frequent vacations and longer, healthier lives, and another found that men who skipped vacations for several years were 30 percent more likely to have heart attacks than those who took at least one week off from work each year.
