What happens when job-stimulus funds get spent on a company that reduces its workforce? 

It looks like Barack Obama and Energy Secretary Stephen Chu made another "bad bet" in 2009, sinking $200 million into the non-profit National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. NREL isn't going under, but it's cutting back staff after getting a big taxpayer subsidy from Porkulus...

A pair of assistant principals at a New York school were each fined $25,000 for keeping more than $20,000 worth of theme park tickets meant for students.

City officials said Assistant Principal Richard Gilberto and Assistant Principal Derric Borrero of IS 24 kept the Great Adventure tickets, which were each worth $64.19 but marked "complimentary," after they were donated to the school for use by students, the New York Post reported Thursday.

All Isabella "Bella" Weems really wanted was a used car. That desire set in motion a chain of events that led to the Arizona teenager spearheading what is now a multi-million dollar enterprise that she may someday control.

Weems, now 17, is founder of Origami Owl, a custom jewelry company whose direct sales business model turns would-be entrepreneurs into salespeople and evangelists. The company, which she founded in 2010 at age 14, generated $24 million in revenue in 2012 and this year expects to reach $250 million, according to the company. Origami Owl takes on independent associates - known as "designers" - who buy products at a discount and then peddle them to others for a marked up price. One of the favorite points of sale are "jewelry bars," or private parties at someone's home or another venue operated by a "hostess" (the hostesses get discounts and some free products too). The company has about 50,887 designers.

During the month of February--as President Barack Obama was warning Americans they would see dramatic effects in their lives if "sequestration" of some planned federal spending kicked in--the federal government's debt climbed by $253.5 billion.

That one-month increase in the debt was nearly six times as much as the $44 billion in spending cuts the Congressional Budget Office estimates will take place in all of fiscal 2013 as a result of sequestration. At the close of business on Jan. 31, 2013, the federal debt was $16,433,791,850,294.04, according to the U.S. Treasury. At the close of business on Feb. 28, 2013, the federal debt was $16,687,289,180,215.37. Thus, the federal debt increased $253,497,329,921.33 during the month.

A woman who challenged a $3.4 billion settlement between the U.S. government and Native American land trust beneficiaries is asking the Supreme Court to take up her case.

Kimberly Craven's attorney filed a petition with the Supreme Court Monday. Attorney Anand Ramana said Wednesday he does not expect to know for months whether the justices will take up the case. Craven says the settlement pits Native American plaintiffs against each other.

In 2009, the Obama administration approved a set of loan guarantees to Solyndra that totaled over $520 million, which supposedly would have created thousands of new jobs.

Most of that money, $300 million, went to build a new manufacturing plant for the solar panels that cost more to build than the market price they could fetch. For some reason, the Department of Energy and the White House found this to be a solid business model. Eventually, the company went bankrupt despite an effort by the Obama administration to bring new cash into Solyndra - by illegally subordinating taxpayer standing in event of a collapse. The bankruptcy continued to unwind this week with the sale of the new facility. The $300 million facility managed to go for 30 cents on the dollar...

Jurors say they wanted to send message to Ukiah school district for death during swimming class.

In a stinging rebuke to local school officials, a Mendocino County jury Thursday awarded $4.25 million to the grieving parents of a 13-year-old boy who drowned at the city pool during a 2003 swimming class. The jury, which took less than 90 minutes to reach its unanimous verdict, awarded Sandy and Joe Talamo $250,000 more than their attorneys had sought.

A federal judge gave his final approval Thursday to a $42.6 million class-action settlement between companies that made and installed government-issued trailers after hurricanes in 2005 and Gulf Coast storm victims who claim they were exposed to hazardous fumes while living in the shelters. U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt ruled from the bench after hearing from attorneys who brokered a deal resolving nearly all remaining court claims over elevated levels of formaldehyde in trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency following hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

That's the figure. And the CEO, who I suppose moonlights writing unemployment headlines for Reuters, found Solyndra's bankruptcy to be...wait for it...'unexpected.'
