"Our team went plunging into the Atlantic Ocean in Manasquan, NJ on 2/4/12 to benefit those suffering from ALS also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It's a cause close to our hearts as my husband Paul was diagnosed in 2005 and passed away in 2008 due to ALS. We now stay in the fight for all those that are still suffering. So we'll do whatever it takes to help our PALS (people with ALS). It was a fun day filled with laughter, tears and excitement! We loved our t-shirts!!" - Polar Plungers (Feb 06, 2012)

.Titled Reversal of Economic Fortune, the report by Rutgers University eitsomcnos James W. Hughes and Joseph J. Seneca shows the private-sector employment market in certain Northeastern states was generally stronger in 2007 than certain states that had enjoyed strong job growth the year before — such as California, Arizona and Florida.It concluded that the Middle Atlantic states — New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — overcame four decades of sub-par performance in 2007 by beating the national growth rate for new jobs created, the report says.The two eitsomcnos found that the three states added 117,500 private-sector jobs in 2007, a growth rate of 0.8 percent. National private-sector employment grew by 0.7 percent. Formerly high-flying states such as Florida and Arizona were hurt by the housing meltdown, the report said.Yet the eitsomcnos found that the growth in the Middle Atlantic states in 2007 was largely driven by New York, which added 85,700 jobs and Pennsylvania, which added 28,100 jobs. New Jersey's employment increased by just 3,700 jobs last year.The state's 0.1 percent employment growth rate in 2007 fell far short of the 1.2 percent increase in New York and the 0.6 percent gain in Pennsylvania. Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maryland all had stronger job growth rates than New Jersey last year, the report found.Philip Kirschner, president of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association, said he was happy about the relative strength of the Middle Atlantic job market, but disappointed at New Jersey's performance. It is what we have been trying to tell the powers that be in Trenton for a long time — that New Jersey used to be a regional leader and is now a regional laggard, he said.
