When CafePress first started printing shirts in 1999, online retail was still a nascent industry and Google had yet to sell its first ad. Soon CafePress started selling products through search ads on Google, and their business took off.

Today, CafePress hosts millions of shops online where customers can choose from more than 325 million products on nearly any topic, from wall art to phone cases. Just as CafePress has broadened its offerings over time, we've also worked to improve and expand our search advertising products. What started as three lines of simple text has evolved into ads that are multimedia-rich, location-aware and socially-amplified.

As the changes roll out, some campaigns will see variation in keyword Quality Scores and typical ad position.

Within a couple weeks, things should stabilize and we expect most campaigns will not see a significant change in overall performance. Just like today, campaigns with better-performing ads for user queries will continue to see higher Quality Scores, lower average cost per click and higher position on results pages. The 1-10 Quality Score in the AdWords interface will continue to represent the general quality of your keyword when exactly matching a search on Google. Increases in bid and Quality Score will continue to increase Ad Rank. And the same basic approach to improving your results with AdWords applies.

On "This Week with George Stephanopolous" yesterday, Senator Rand Paul and Professor Paul Krugman got into a quick argument about the size of government under President Obama.

So what are the facts? It depends on whether you're looking at the federal workforce or the total government workforce. The number of federal employees has risen under President Obama. There were 2,790,000 federal workers in January 2009 when the president took office, and now there are 2,804,000 workers. The fact is that there is no month during President Obama's term when the federal workforce was smaller than it was in the first month of Mr. Obama's presidency. The president took over in January 2009. Every month after January 2009 has seen more federal workers than were employed in January 2009.

It's probably President Obama's most politically effective line of attack against Mitt Romney.

The president argues that it was the unchecked, reckless, casino capitalism of the George W. Bush years - bank deregulation, tax cuts for the rich - that lead to the nation's worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. And if Mitt Romney is elected in November, the Republican will bring those policies right back, risking another financial collapse. But a book by Robert Hetzel, a senior economist at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, says it wasn't Bushonomics or greedy bankers or broken markets that caused the Great Recession. In "The Great Recession: Market Failure or Policy Failure", Hetzel pins the blame squarely on the Federal Reserve and Team Bernanke.

A study coming out this week in The Journal of Human Resources gives an important answer. Teachers of classes as early as kindergarten factor good behavior into grades - and girls, as a rule, comport themselves far better than boys.

The study's authors analyzed data from more than 5,800 students from kindergarten through fifth grade and found that boys across all racial groups and in all major subject areas received lower grades than their test scores would have predicted. That boys struggle with school is hardly news. A few decades ago, when we realized that girls languished behind boys in math and science, we mounted a concerted effort to give them more support, with significant success. Shouldn't we do the same for boys? When I made this argument in my book "The War Against Boys," almost no one was talking about boys' academic, social and vocational problems.

Sunoco Inc bit the bullet on Tuesday, announcing it would get out of the brutally competitive oil-refining business as fast as possible and in the process possibly shut a huge chunk of the U.S. East Coast's refining capacity.

The company wants out of refining by July, which doesn't leave much time to find buyers for its 335,000-barrels-per-day Philadelphia refinery or the nearby 178,000-bpd Marcus Hook facility. With regional operating rates stuck at 80 percent, closures look likely.

Online retail sales are expected to be a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy holiday picture despite a host of worries for American consumers, analysts say.

Surveys indicate online sales for the critical holiday season will grow some 15 to 20 percent, with a large portion occurring on so-called "Cyber Monday" on November 26 used by many to kick off the Internet shopping season.

Because in real terms (adjusted for inflation) you literally are poorer, with pretty much each passing day.

Even those with significant assets are hurting. Keeping up with inflation was, most of the time, not terribly difficult. A cd at the local bank was often enough. But now, with interest rates at historic lows it is very difficult to find low risk yield. It's either get into the market or get left behind. Grandma shouldn't be in the market, especially the way it is now. What we see here is the Federal Reserve keeping the debt game going. This is good for the banks, but not so good for nearly everyone else.

Why does Marie McCormick - former chair of the panel that produced the botched IOM report claiming vaccines do not cause autism - currently serve as co-chair of the "Vaccine Safety Working Group" of the National Vaccine Advisory Council?

Her past remarks should disqualify her from serving on any committees concerned with vaccine regulation as illustrated by the following examples retrieved from the leaked transcripts of the January 12, 2001 closed session of the Immunization Safety Review Committee of the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine at the National Academies Building in Washington DC. Here is a comment she made in 2001, justifying a preconceived conclusion about autism and vaccines...
