Data refer to place of residence. Estimates for the current month are subject to revision the following month. Program Update: Beginning with the production of March 2011 preliminary Current Employment Statistics data, the not seasonally adjusted and seasonally adjusted Statewide and Burlington-S. Burlington MSA will transition from the Vermont Department of Labor to the BLS. These data will be released on April 19th, 2011.  Concurrent with this transition, the BLS will implement several methodological changes to standardize the estimation approach across States. While these changes will reduce the potential for statistical bias in state and metropolitan area estimates, they may increase the month to month variability of the estimates.More detailed information on the changes to procedures for producing CES estimates is available on the BLS Web site at http://www.bls.gov/sae/cesprocs.htm(link is external). The Vermont Department of Labor announced today the seasonally adjusted statewide unemployment rate for February 2011 was 5.6 percent. This reflects the second straight month of a decrease of one-tenth of a percentage point to the statewide rate (i.e. the January unemployment rate was 5.7 percent) and a decrease of one and one-tenth of a percentage point from a year ago, February 2010. This is the lowest rate since November 2008. The US rate was down to 8.9 percent. Vermont had the fifth lowest rate in the nation (see table below).Looking back over recent years’ data, the last increase in the seasonally adjusted Vermont unemployment rate was in April 2009.  At that time the rate was 7.3 percent.  Since then the statewide unemployment rate has trended down to its current level of 5.6 percent. On another note of interest, February 2011 data marks a new all-time high for the size of the Vermont labor force.  For the past few months, the Vermont economy has reported a positive trend in both the total labor force and total employment.   ‘These numbers are encouraging even though Vermont is still experiencing the effects of elevated unemployment and under-employment compared to its long term economic history.  The Department of Labor is hopeful for positive news regarding Congressional decisions on the workforce development and training money that Vermont is hoping to receive in federal programs such as Workforce Investment Act, Youth Employment and Dislocated Worker programs,’ said Annie Noonan, Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor.Analysis of Job Changes by IndustryThe preliminary ‘not seasonally adjusted’ jobs numbers for February show an increase of 3,250 jobs when compared to the revised January numbers.  This reported over the month change does not include the 350 job decrease between the preliminary and the revised January estimates due to the inclusion of more data.  As detailed in the preliminary not seasonally adjusted February data, Total Private reports an increase of 1,500 jobs and Government reports an increase of 1,750 jobs.  In the private sector, the industry with the largest nominal increase was Education & Health Services with 1,300 jobs.  Construction reported the largest nominal decline (-600 jobs) in the not seasonally adjusted data.  Based on the preliminary February data, the annual rate of unadjusted job growth was a positive 2.8 percent.The seasonally adjusted data for February reports an increase of 500 jobs from the revised January data.  As with the ‘not seasonally adjusted’ data, this over the month change is from the revised January numbers which experienced a downward revision from the preliminary estimates (-300 jobs).  A review of the seasonally adjusted February numbers shows Vermont’s Private Industries with a job increase of 600 jobs.  Education & Health Services (+700 jobs) and Professional & Business Services (+600 jobs) reported the largest job gains.  Leisure & Hospitality (-800 jobs) and Manufacturing (-200 jobs) reported the largest job declines.  Total Government decreased by 100 jobs from the revised January counts.State of Vermont OverviewVermont’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased one tenth of a percent to 5.6 percent in February.   The underlying data showed increases to the labor force (+1,100) and total employment (+1,500) combined with a decrease to total unemployment (-500).  For comparison purposes, the United States seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for February showed a one tenth of a percent decrease to 8.9 percent.February unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 3.8 percent in Warren-Waitsfield to 9.7 percent in Newport.  Local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted.  For comparison, the February unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 6.0 percent, which was three-tenths of a percentage point lower than the revised January data and down one and three-tenths of a percentage point from a year ago.For details, please contact Mathew Barewicz at the Vermont Department of Labor at 802-828-4153 or [email protected](link sends e-mail) Notes: Statewide Total Nonfarm is a summed total and Wholesale Trade has been added as a seasonally adjusted series in 2011.           Mining & Logging and Information are not published seasonally adjusted because the seasonal component, which is                  small relative to the trend-cycle and irregular components, cannot be separated with sufficient precision.

Panelists discuss nuclear threats from North Korea

first_imgOn Tuesday, Dornsife Dialogues hosted a panel discussion on the potential of a nuclear war with North Korea. Led by USC Dornsife Dean Amber Miller, the panel included David Petraeus, a retired U.S. Army four-star general, and David Kang, a professor of international relations and the director of the USC Korean Studies Institute. At the event, the panelists discussed the political and economic issues between North Korea and the rest of the world.With intensifying political tension with North Korea from the Trump administration, the possibility of a nuclear war hangs in the minds of American citizens. According to a Pew Research study, 65 percent of Americans are concerned about North Korea’s nuclear weapons. Both Petraeus and Kang focused on the perceptions and their opinions on North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and how his leadership affects international politics, specifically the relationship between North Korea and the United States. “I actually think [the Asia] trip is really important,” Kang said. “President [Donald] Trump, particularly on the Japan and Korea side where he was talking about North Korea, he hit all the right notes. In general, the message I hear from President Trump, even though it’s a little more flamboyant than perhaps others, remains a deterring message.” Kang explained how Trump’s recent visit to South Korea and Japan was a crucial step toward the relationship and future interactions between East Asia and the United States. Both Kang and Petraeus also assessed the security dilemma between the two countries and how the United States is trying to get a stronger stance against North Korea.“To put this into context in United States terms, I think you need to be fair with the current administration and acknowledge that it faces a different prospect from any of its predecessors and other administrations,” Petraeus said. “I think it’s understandable that there should be such a focus on this [nuclear attack] issue with the U.S. National Security Team.” Because North Korea has the ability and resources to strike the United States, Petraeus believes that China must play a more prominent role in communications between the countries, because the current message discipline is lacking. Petraeus also emphasized that the sooner China realizes these strategic gratifications, the better this situation will be for all parties. Kang observed that the United States is more worried about a nuclear attack from North Korea than the rise of the Chinese economy, and he found it interesting how the United States fears a smaller country more than a great power. “I think it’s interesting that we’ve been worried about the rise of China, but the rise of China hasn’t caused a lot of military response in the region,” Kang said. “But the smallest country, North Korea, is getting South Korea to rethink their military commitment. I think it’s very interesting that it’s not the biggest country that’s causing the instability, it’s the smallest country and I think that’s something we need to think about and starting understanding.” Kang explained how North Korea has consistently made deterring statements in past years, such as “If you strike us first, we will strike you back.” However, one of the reasons a fear of attack in the United States is growing is because most of the media only reports on the second portion of the statement, to create a “sea of fire” image to the audience, he said. Petraeus and Kang ended the forum by conversing about how the decisions China makes in regards to joining sides with the United States or North Korea will severely impact the future of international politics. Trump has threatened multiple times to stop U.S. trade with China.“If the trade sanctions are actually enforced by China, it would be a big deal,” Petraeus said. “China could literally turn the lights out in Pyongyang if it wants to. It will not, probably because it wants to try to calibrate this to bring Kim Jong-un to his senses instead of his knees. They don’t want North Korea to collapse.”last_img read more

To Combat Piracy, Music Labels to Sell Digital Singles the Same Day Songs Hit the Radio

first_imgIn an attempt to combat digital piracy, Sony Music and Universal have announced that they will put digital singles for sale the same day that the music hits the airwaves. According to record label executives, the move is meant to combat what The Guardian calls the “impatient X Factor generation” who are unwilling to wait what is sometimes up to six weeks between a radio release of a song and its actual sales release.Whether or not that length of time is what’s contributed to rampant piracy of digital music, there’s no doubt that early releases of songs on the radio do tend to find themselves available for download illegally shortly thereafter.According to music executives, the practice of “setting up” a record several weeks in advance of sales is out-of-date. “What we were findng under the old system was the search for songs on Google or iTunes were peaking two weeks before they actually became available to buy,” says David Joseph, the chief executive of Universal Music, “meaning that the public was bored of – or had already pirated – new singles.”The practice of hyping music before release was part of a strategy of having songs hit the number one position on the chart upon release, and The Guardian says that industry insiders believe this new “on air, on sale” policy will make it easier for songs to climb the charts as excitement grows, rather than simply appear on the charts on release day, only to fall off immediately afterwards.Sony and Universal will start this new policy in the U.K. It’s not clear at this time if other record labels – or labels in other countries – will follow suit. Of course, nor is it clear that the lack of “instant gratification” in getting new songs is really the impetus behind music piracy.
