Job losses have been smaller on a percentage basis as well, though any job losses remain a concern.”Vermont’s observed seasonally adjusted monthly changes in employment, unemployment and unemployment rate are not statistically different from July values. For comparison purposes, the US seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for August was 6.1 percent, up four-tenths of a point from July 2008. Unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 2.6% percent in Hartford to 5.7% percent in Newport. Local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted. For comparison, the unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 4.3 percent, down two-tenths of a point from July 2008 and up 1.1 points from a year ago.Jobs Data (Vermont’s job count estimates are produced from a statewide survey of business establishments conducted under the Current Employment Survey (CES) – a cooperative effort with the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.)Seasonally adjusted job levels fell by 800 or -0.3% over July, and by -1,000 or -0.3% over the year. Job losses were spread over many sectors including Manufacturing, Construction, Trade, Transportation & Utilities, Education & Health services, Financial Activities, Other services and Government. A notable exception was Leisure and Hospitality which added 200 seasonally adjusted jobs in August.Before adjustment, Total Non-Farm jobs were essentially flat, -50 jobs from July to August, but down 600 jobs or -0.2% annually. Only Leisure and Hospitality showed any significant seasonal job gains from July to August (+700 / 2.0%), but the segment remains essentially flat over the year. The Health Care & Social Assistance sector continues to show good annual job gains (950/2.5%). Manufacturing is down over the year (-850 / -2.4%) as is the Construction sector, (-750 / -4.0%). Declines in construction may have been aggravated by poor weather in the measurement period.

first_imgBy Dialogo December 03, 2010 I think it is a disaster at this era of the XXI century that the Government of Nicaragua has made up this supposed boundary problem with a country like Costa Rica which invades with military forces against one that has no army to disgracefully receive favor in relations with the establishment of Cuba, Venezuela and Bolivia, how ignorant of these countries, like the King of Spain told Chavez, “Why don’t you shut up?” I would say “Why don’t you stop screwing everyone else and live like dogs in your own home and not in the neighborhood. This is like returning to the colonial times and times of conquests by ignorant people and the starving conquistadors of that barbaric time. When Costa Rica is an actual example of a democratic country for more than 60 years without the scumbags which are the military that run all of the underdeveloped countries of Latin America, what are they good for if they are only starving the people. Personally to me CR IS THE SECOND SWITZERLAND in America and it merits imitation, and it is a challenge for the other developed countries – come up with a solution worthy of civilized people who have evolved. I believe that in reality Daniel Ortega is a complete royal mess he hasn’t noticed that what he wants to do is finish destroying the country and the one that it should matter most to is this same Daniel because the people of Nicaragua have blood running through their veins not water and won’t tolerate such stupidity he is better off stopping these plans which will only destroy and bring pain to the families of the young at the mercy of the selfish. I am from Nicaragua and he is bad without any knowledge of governance I don’t know, do we allow this, my people let’s act the way we should. Don’t let our rights be violated, let’s show them that we love our Nicaragua. I lost an uncle in the last war and I would want any more misfortune for my country. I now live in COSTA RICA but I love my country. President Daniel Ortega has asked Nicaraguan lawmakers to pass emergency laws to give him greater power to mobilize troops, amid a surge in tensions over a border row with Costa Rica. The move has alarmed some analysts who see it as a bid by Ortega to take advantage of the diplomatic spat to concentrate more power in his own hands. Nicaragua’s constitution bars mandatory military service, but the proposed laws would allow Ortega to order a “national mobilization” during conflicts or natural disasters. The proposal would make “all human, technical and material resources that fall under the defense plan” subject to such mobilizations and any asset or public official considered useful for national defense “will be put under the control of the Nicaraguan Army.” Former president Arnoldo Aleman said it appeared that Ortega was trying to reestablish the state security and mandatory military service that existed during the leftist Sandinista revolutionary government he led from 1979-1990. The move comes amid a border dispute with Costa Rica that has prompted Nicaragua to send troops to the San Juan River, which forms most of its southern frontier with Costa Rica. The Washington-based Organization of American States has called a meeting of foreign ministers for December 7 in Washington to try to defuse the tensions. The two neighbors have clashed since the 19th century over navigation rights on the San Juan River. The International Court of Justice last year ruled that Nicaragua had sovereignty over the river, but that Costa Rica also had the right to freely use the waterway for tourism and trade. The court also rejected Costa Rica’s request that it be allowed to deploy armed patrols along the river.last_img read more

first_imgGreensburg, In. — The Decatur County Memorial Hospital has received a “Bronze” recognition by the American Heart Association in the 2017 Workplace Health Achievement Index.The index uses science-based best practices to evaluate and promote a culture of health in the workplace. The index also calculates the average heart health score for employees of participating companies that securely submit health data.“The American Heart Association is building a culture of health and well-being throughout the country, and on behalf of the Association, we congratulate these local companies and thank them for their efforts in cultivating healthier workplaces and communities,” said Kathy Krusie, chair of the American Heart Association’s Indianapolis board of directors.The Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index allows companies to measure the effectiveness of their workplace health programs, as well as the overall heart health of their employees. Unlike other existing organizational scorecards, the Index also scores companies on the heart health of their employees based on Life’s Simple 7® – the Association’s scientifically validated definition of ideal heart health. The key factors contributing to optimal heart health include smoking cessation, maintaining a healthy weight, staying physically active, eating a healthy diet, managing blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, and keeping blood sugar at a healthy level.Decatur County Memorial Hospital was one only eight hospitals in the state that were recognized in the index.last_img read more
