Unemployment rate jumps half point to 5.7 percent

first_imgThe Vermont Department of Labor announced today that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November 2008 was 5.7 percent, up five-tenths of a point from the revised October rate and up 1.9 points from a year ago.”The nation’s economic slowdown is showing up in more sectors of Vermont’s labor market” said Patricia Moulton Powden, Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor. “Bright spots remain in Education & Health services as well as Professional & Business services which continue to show annual growth.”Job GrowthBefore seasonal adjustment, Total Non-Farm (TNF) jobs fell by 2,500 or -0.8% from October to November. Most of this decline is expected as we transition into the winter and holiday period. However, annual TNF job losses increased to -1,950 or -0.6%. The largest monthly seasonal declines were observed in Leisure & Hospitality, (-1,750 or -5.4%), Construction (-950 or -5.6%) Professional & Business services, (-450 or -2.0%) and Manufacturing, (-300 or -0.9%). Only Education & Health services, (+100 or 0.2%) and the Government sector, (+150 or 0.3%) showed month to month gains. On an annual basis Education & Healthcare, (+900 or 1.6%) and Professional & Business services, (+150 or 0.7%) are the only sectors showing significant job growth. The Manufacturing and Construction sectors have contracted by 1,050 and 1,200 jobs respectively over the year.When seasonally adjusted, November job levels declined by 600 or -0.2% over October and by 1,800 or -0.6% from November of 2007. Education & Health services, (+100 jobs), Leisure & Hospitality, (+ 400 jobs) and Total Government, (+200 jobs) were the only major employment sectors to show any seasonally adjusted monthly job growth.Employment GrowthVermont’s unemployment rate grew to 5.7 percent in November as a result of a sharp increase in the number of unemployed (+1,697 to 20,200) and a decrease in employment (-918 to 336,800). Vermont’s observed November seasonally adjusted unemployment levels and rate were statistically significant and greater than October values, but employment and total labor force values were not. For comparison purposes, the US seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November was 6.7 percent, up two-tenths of a point from October 2008. Unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 3.2 percent in Hartford to 7.4 percent in Newport. Local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted. For comparison, the November unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 5.5 percent, up three-tenths of a point from October 2008 and up 2 points from a year ago.last_img read more

Comfort Strengthens Partnership with Grenada Following Successful Medical Mission

first_imgBy U.S. Navy Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Brendan Fitzgerald October 02, 2019 The Comfort team is comprised of military and civilian personnel from U.S. and partner nations, including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Peru, as well as several nongovernmental organizations capable of delivering medical assistance, humanitarian assistance, subject matter exchanges, and partnership building.During the visit, Comfort’s U.S. Navy and civilian engineers provided a Grenadian hospital with cylinders of oxygen that were critical to helping patients. The engineers also worked with hospital staff to repair the facility’s oxygen generation plant, which was inoperable for about two years.“An oxygen generation plant is significant to the care of many patients,” said U.S. Navy Captain Patrick Amersbach, commanding officer, Medical Treatment Facility. “This was something we could do to help support not only the hospital, but the people of Grenada.”During Comfort’s six-day medical mission in St. George’s, 800 medical professionals of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, and U.S. Public Health Service alongside eight partner nations, provided care for 5,060 patients at two separate shore-based medical sites and performed 96 surgeries aboard the ship.“Men and women from Grenada and the United States working together for the betterment of the people — I think that is the most touching part of this,” said Nickolas Steele, the Grenadian minister for health, social security, and international business. “That is the enduring message of us working together.” U.S. Navy Lt. Alan Chambers, a nurse, hands a woman a cup of water following her surgery aboard the hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) as the ship is anchored off the coast of St. George’s, Grenada, Sept. 15, 2019. Comfort is working with health and government partners in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean to provide care on the ship and at land-based medical sites, helping to relieve pressure on national healthcare systems, including those strained by an increase in cross-border migrants.

Aerial Stunt Protests Google’s Relationship With Evil Lobbyist

first_imgTags:#Google#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market In addition to these issues, the Chamber of Commerce stands for a bunch of indisputably nasty things. The top 10 reasons Google should quit the Chamber according to voters on the campaign are horrifying.The Chamber wants unlimited corporate political donations. It opposed the creation of a national holiday for Martin Luther King, Jr. due to lost productivity. It opposes efforts to equalize pay between men and women. Todd Akin, the guy who thinks victims of “legitimate rape” don’t get pregnant, was one of the Chamber’s biggest recipients of political spending this year. Yeah. Nasty.The GoogleQuitTheChamber.org campaign has received over 800,000 votes on the best reasons for Google to quit the Chamber of Commerce, and over 275,000 people have signed their names to the petition. Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… At noon Pacific on Monday, an airplane will approach Google’s headquarters in Mountain View. But it’s not a skydiving product demo this time. It’s towing a banner for a campaign to convince Google to quit the U.S. Chamber of Commerce over its record on climate change denial, Internet censorship, and money.Google has been considering leaving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for nearly a year after Yahoo left in October 2011. Google is still paying dues to this powerful lobbying organization, even though its record stands at odds with Google’s positions and threatens its business.The Chamber lobbies heavily to protect the entertainment industry, a constituency Google needs on its side as it forays further into music, TV and video businesses. But the Chamber’s advocacy for Internet censorship legislation such as the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), which Google publicly opposed, proved a bridge too far for Yahoo. Today’s demonstration urges Google to follow suit.The Chamber is all about the interests of big business, so its record on the environment is pretty heinous, too. Google donates money to clean energy causes and has long-term corporate targets to reduce its own energy use. This is yet another reason Google’s relationship with the Chamber doesn’t make sense.

(Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram crossed a line early Tuesday morning. Expect the tweet you’ll see below to get some serious play in the coming days.Monday night, ahead of the national title game between Alabama and Clemson, Ingram, a former Crimson Tide running back (and Heisman winner), was an honorary captain. When ESPN’s cameras panned to show Ingram at midfield, he appeared much smaller than current Alabama tailback Derrick Henry, leading to a number of jokes at his expense.ESPN’s Jemele Hill was one to take advantage. She joked that if the two were brothers, it’d be clear that Henry got the size and speed, while Ingram got the strong hairline. When you’re little brother gets the size and speed and all you get is a strong hairline pic.twitter.com/nLc7QnESST— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) January 12, 2016Well, Ingram clearly wasn’t thrilled.

Delroy Chuck, says the building that houses the Accountant General’s Department, downtown Kingston, has been vacated and renovations should start in a matter of weeks, which will provide additional space for the Court of Appeal.“A backlog is growing in the Court of Appeal, and I know the President would like to start appointing the additional judges, but he can’t appoint them unless space is available,” Mr. Chuck said.Addressing the House of Representatives on September 19, the Justice Minister said he hopes by February 2018 space will become available for use within the building.“I am working on the basis that the contractors will start the work and finish up at least the office space for the judges by February next year.

JAMPRO Intensifying Efforts to Source Markets for Country’s Products

first_img Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) is intensifying its marketing and promotional efforts to increase exports and source additional markets for Jamaica’s authentic food brands and products.The JAMPRO team has been tapping into various markets, including Canada, United States of America (USA), Cuba and other Caribbean territories.Highlighting the marketing initiatives, Manager for Sales and Promotion at JAMPRO, Marlene Porter, told JIS News that through its Canada Market Development programme, JAMPRO has been undertaking several activations to identify and grow exports in the various areas.“JAMPRO has been looking at the Canadian market for several years now and we have had workshops that look at that country. We have had speakers share with us on the Canadian market and doing business there. We have hosted engagements in collaboration with the Canadian High Commission, so that our local stakeholders and clients can be sensitised on the market requirements, the trends in consumer demand and other dynamics relating to the market and how to penetrate it,” she said.Mrs. Porter added that there have been workshops looking at the packaging and labeling requirements within the Canadian market as well as trade missions and shows that various local companies have participated in to network and showcase their products.“We have put some 16 companies before buyers that have come in from Canada for business-to-business meetings and visits to their facilities, so that the buyers can see that we have the capacity and can sustain a presence in the market,” the Manager pointed out.Mrs. Porter said that the market development programme for Cuba has been bearing fruit, with plans for an inward mission from Cuba to coincide with Expo Jamaica in April.In terms of the United States, JAMPRO has undertaken a number of activations in Florida, New York and Georgia, and is preparing to venture into Washington DC.“The Caribbean is an important target market, and we continue to look for the opportunities there. Late last year, we did a mission across three Caribbean markets with a number of companies, to explore even further how we can build out that market,” Mrs. Porter informed.“So, we have a number of activations planned to get our export products out there, to get brand Jamaica out there, and we are looking at special programmes as well that will help to promote brand Jamaica as we build out our individual market-penetration initiatives,” she added.Come March 13, JAMPRO will be hosting an agricultural information session geared at further promoting investments in that sector.The session is targeted at persons who have a deep interest in that industry, and those with projects and seeking investors.“In going into exports, people need to understand that it requires work. You have to take certain steps to understand the market and realise there are differences in doing exports than just selling on the local market,” Mrs. Porter said.She is encouraging persons to “seize opportunities of this kind by going into the markets, gather market intelligence and take that step of doing business and expanding exports”.

Danish Flag Hits Milestone with Over 20 Mn GT

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Pixabay The Danish flag has recently passed a milestone as the gross tonnage in Danish ship registers went above 20 million GT for the first time ever.The Danish government’s efforts to ensure attractive framework conditions for the maritime industry are currently yielding a very positive effect as the Danish flag continues to grow.A recent example of this effort was the removal of the registration fee for ships in Danish registries, which the Danish Parliament adopted earlier this year.“The results we are seeing are proof that Denmark is an attractive flag state. We will continue efforts to ensure even better conditions as a strong Danish flag benefits the whole of Denmark,” Brian Mikkelsen, Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, said.“Plus, this is a good example of Denmark gaining from free trade – because global trade increases economic activity among shipping companies, and this becomes very fruitful when we are also having more of those companies choosing Denmark as center of gravity for this increased activity,” Mikkelsen added.Denmark is moving steadily up the ranks, and is currently the world’s 12th largest register.last_img read more
