Vermont unemployment rate dips to 6.0 percent

first_imgThe Vermont Department of Labor announced today the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June 2010 was 6.0 percent, down two tenths from the revised May rate and down 1.2 percent from a year ago. ‘The unemployment rate and the jobs count both showed improvement in June,’ said Valerie Rickert, Acting Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor.  ‘A decline in the number of unemployed caused the unemployment rate to drop and the over the month change in the payroll survey may suggest some positive signs for the Vermont economy. The trends of the past several months continue to show slow but steady improvement in the Vermont labor market.’Vermont Labor Force StatisticsSeasonally Adjusted June  2010  May  2010  June  2009  May  2010  June  2009   Change to         June 2010 from    Total Labor Force358,800360,800360,100-2,000-1,300  Employment337,200338,500334,200-1,3003,000  Unemployment21,60022,30025,900-700-4,300  Rate6.0%6.2%7.2%-0.2-1.2Seasonal Job GrowthThe total job gain in June was mostly typical for the period. Since May, Vermont added 3,350 payroll jobs. Leisure & hospitality contributed the majority, adding 3,800, which reflect seasonal influences at many hotels, motels and eating & drinking establishments. Retail grew by 850 due primarily to the seasonal expansion of payrolls. Construction also continued its seasonal expansion, adding 550 jobs. Manufacturing experienced a healthy over the month change, up 500; both durable and non-durable goods presented increases. Private educational services added 400 jobs, which was a divergence from the typical seasonal pattern. Government education shed a comparatively average number of seasonal jobs in June. A decline in the number of intermittent Census workers drove the downturn in Federal government employment. The annual rate of unadjusted job growth was -0.4%, which is up one percent from the revised May estimate.When seasonally adjusted, June payroll jobs added 1,500 over May and lost 1,900 from a year ago. Leisure & hospitality grew by 1,200, with all of the gain concentrated in accommodation & food services. Private educational services presented an unusual increase, up 1,100 since May, which may represent a statistical anomaly associated with the seasonal aspect of the industry in combination with the aforementioned estimated unadjusted job growth. Construction lost 500 jobs; though we may see some improvement in this sector once more data for June becomes available. Retail added 300 jobs. In aggregate, government lost 400 jobs, with state government down 1,000 and local government up 800 over May.Employment GrowthVermont’s June seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell by two tenths of a point to 6.0 percent as a result of a decline in the number of unemployed. For comparison purposes, the US seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June was 9.5 percent, also down two tenths from May.June unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 4.1 percent in Hartford to 7.9 percent in Newport. Local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted. For comparison, the June unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 5.9 percent, unchanged from May and down 1.3 percent from a year ago. The change in the unadjusted unemployment rate was not statistically significant from the May value.Source: Vermont DOL. 7.20.2010last_img read more

Tips for leading millennial employees

first_imgOver the next decade, as Gen X starts to retire, Millennials will take over as the majority in the workforce. For leaders who haven’t yet gotten a grasp on managing this generation, here are few tips to keep in mind…Give them what they want: While money is obviously a factor for anyone in any job situation, it’s usually not the main focus for Gen Y. The work, passion, atmosphere, and culture are all more important to this generation. The “old school” office culture isn’t as appealing to new talent as it used to be.Lead, don’t manage: Gen Y has a bad reputation for not respecting authority. Don’t manage like a king holding a title over their head. Instead of being commanding and demanding, be an approachable mentor that can be a source of guidance for your younger employees. And always give feedback whether it’s good or bad.Develop their passion: Millennials don’t necessarily know what they want out of their career. Help them learn new skills and develop into their best self. Millennials aren’t scared of trying new things, so help them find an area where they can grow, so you won’t have to replace them when they leave for a position they’re more passionate about. 47SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Turkey, China each report another avian flu case

first_imgJan 10, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Tests in Turkey have confirmed another human case of avian flu, bringing the country’s reported total to 15, while Chinese authorities reported China’s eighth case, the World Health Organization (WHO) said today.The WHO has officially recognized only four cases so far in Turkey, following their confirmation by outside reference laboratories, but the agency said yesterday the quality of testing at Turkey’s national flu center in Ankara is high.The latest case is in a 37-year-old woman with a history of exposure to sick chickens, the WHO said. She lives in the central province of Sivas, the seventh province to report cases, the statement said.In China, the latest case-patient is a 6-year-old boy from the southern province of Hunan, the WHO said. He became ill Dec 24 and is hospitalized in stable condition.Initial investigation suggested that the boy became infected through exposure to sick or dying poultry in his family’s flock, though no poultry outbreaks have been officially reported in the area, the WHO said.Chinese officials also have reported the deaths of two previously reported case-patients, according to the WHO. They are a 10-year-old girl from the Guangxi region and a 35-year-old man from Jiangxi province. The cases were reported Dec 7 and 16, respectively.China now has had eight confirmed cases, five of which were fatal, the WHO said. The latest case is the second in Hunan province; the other patient, reported in November, lived about 300 kilometers from the new patient.All 15 of Turkey’s cases have been confirmed by the government within just the past week. Two teenagers from eastern Turkey died last week.Despite Turkey’s rapidly rising case count, a WHO official in Turkey said the virus does not seem to be spreading from person to person, according to an Associated Press (AP) account.”It seems to be clear that we are dealing with a situation similar to what we have seen in Asia, which means in practice a number of small sites, family clusters of disease involving many children and always with documented or reported contact with infected birds, typically backyard poultry,” said Guenael Rodier, part of a WHO team in Turkey.The 37-year-old woman is only the second adult among the Turkish cases so far, according to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report. The rest are children and teenagers from several provinces who are being treated in Ankara, the northern city of Samsun, and the eastern city of Van, the story said..Turkey’s agriculture ministry said 306,000 birds have been culled in 15 of the country’s 81 provinces, according to AFP.In Japan today, the government said 77 healthy poultry workers have shown evidence of past infection with H5N2 avian flu, marking the first time that virus has been known to infect humans, according to an AFP report.The workers in Ibaraki and Saitama prefectures, north of Tokyo, carried antibodies believed to result from an H5N2 infection, officials said. Japan has had several poultry outbreaks of H5N2, a milder strain than H5N1, in recent months.An official said none of the workers have the virus now, so there is no risk they will spread it to others, according to the story. When the workers became infected was unknown.The AFP report said five people in western Japan were infected with H5N1 avian flu in 2004, but none suffered more than a sore throat.See also:WHO update on Turkeyhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2006_01_10a/en/index.htmlWHO update on Chinahttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2006_01_10/en/index.htmllast_img read more

Nakilat’s LNG tankers complete 38 transits of expanded Panama Canal

first_imgImage courtesy of NakilatLNG vessels of Qatar’s Nakilat, the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipping company, have completed 38 transits of the expanded Panama Canal.Since the New Panama Canal has been in operation, Nakilat’s LPG vessels have transited through the Canal 16 times while joint-venture conventional LNG vessels completed 38 transits, with the company looking into the possibility of traversing the canal with its Q-Flex carriers.Nakilat said on Tuesday that it conducted compatibility studies and thorough assessments of Q-Flex class LNG carriers on safely transiting through the new locks in the near future.The expansion of the Panama Canal in 2016 allowed for bigger, Neopanamax class, vessels such as LNG carriers to now transit through the canal locks as they make their journey from East to West and vice versa. Passage through the canal allows vessels to shorten their voyage by about 13,000 kilometers.It is worth noting that the Panama Canal closed its 2018 fiscal year with a record tonnage of 442.1 million Panama Canal tons, boosted in particular by LNG and LPG transit.The first LNG tanker to pass through the newly expanded Panama Canal was the 161,870-cbm Maran Gas Apollonia in 2016, chartered by Shell.In October last year, the Panama Canal introduced changes to its transit reservation system to offer two slots per day to LNG vessels. These modifications have allowed the optimization of the Expanded Canal’s capacity, in order to meet specific demands such as the transit of four LNG vessels.The modifications unveiled in August 2018 and coming into effect on October 1, also lift certain daylight restrictions for LNG vessels, as well as meetings between LNG vessels in opposite directions in Gatun Lake. This increased the number of LNG passages with the Canal reporting four liquefied natural gas tanker crossings in one day in October.last_img read more

Cricket News Cricket needs Virat Kohli’s passion and aggression: Allan Border

first_imgNew Delhi: Virat Kohli had a bittersweet Perth Test against Australia. He blasted his sixth century Down Under but India lost the Test by 146 runs to squander the advantage they had in Adelaide. He was involved in a war of words with Australia skipper Tim Paine and that received some criticism from former players like Mitchell Johnson, who termed his behavior ‘silly’. However, former Australia skipper Allan Border has justified Kohli’s aggression and said cricket needs the Indian cricket team captain’s aggression and passion in order for the game to survive. This comes after former India pacer Zaheer Khan had stressed that Kohli does not need to tone down his aggression.Border pointed out that the aggression from Kohli stemmed from the fact that he desperately wanted to win an away series as the skipper of the side. “There’s not many characters in our game at the moment. The professional era has sort of beaten that out to a certain degree. I haven’t seen anyone sort of carry on so much as a captain when his side takes a wicket. It’s really over the top but it’s good in a way. You can see some passion about what he’s trying to do. He’s so keen to win away from home and really deserve that number one ranking. That’s your KPIs (key performance indicators) as a captain I suppose,” Border said in Fox Cricket’s podcast – The Follow-on.Read More | Justin Langer terms India’s aggression ‘brilliant’India has not won a series in countries like New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and England since 2009. Kohli’s side are aiming to become the first Indian side to win a Test series in Australia and heading into the Melbourne Test, both sides are level 1-1. Border said Kohli has the passion and the drive to succeed but he is feeling the pinch as captain.Read More | Mitchell Johnson slams Virat Kohli, calls his behavior ‘disrespectful’“To drive the team to be number one, which he has achieved, but to win away from home is one of those important things you notice as a captain. I think he’s feeling that pinch. If you look at this Indian side he’s probably the only one that has the character to get really animated. The rest of the Indian boys are very good cricketers but seem to me a quiet bunch and maybe Kohli feels as skipper he needs to lead from the front and really show some passion and drive. I think it just comes naturally to him,” said Border. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
