Berkshire Hathaway Avoids Downgrade As S&P Reclassifies It As Corporate Conglomerate

Credit-rating firm Standard & Poor’s  now views Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. as a corporate conglomerate instead of an insurance company, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Berkshire Hathaway, based in Omaha, Nebraska, has increasingly grown to include more non-insurance-based businesses, which accounted for about half of its assets and three-fourths of its pretax profits. That also includes its $37 billion purchase of Oregon-based aerospace parts manufacturer Precision Castparts Inc.

Older adults can get refresher on road rules – Dothan Eagle: Local

A lot has changed since Gwen Davidson started driving. As a result, Davidson decided it would be a good idea to take driving courses for seniors offered by Southeast Alabama Medical Center.

“When we started driving, it was all two lanes,” she said. “Now it’s all four and six lanes.”

Davidson’s decision was a smart one. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are more than 36 million licensed drivers ages 65 and older in the U.S. As our population ages, the number of older adults on the roads will increase. Older adults are at elevated risk of being injured or killed in car accidents. In 2012, more than 5,560 older adults were killed and 214,000 were injured. 


Expensive cost savings plan – Daily American: Columns

Q. My fiancé and I have lived together for almost four years. It was supposed to be a cost saving measure, but so far I’m not seeing any savings. We agreed that I would move into his house because he already had one and that we would split everything down the middle which sounded fair. The problem came to a head when during a conversation that turned into a fight that it came up that I do not contribute to my employers 401K or have any savings.
