Today's employment report stands out-unfortunately as a stray from the other good news this week. Payroll growth for November was unexpectedly soft and the unemployment rate rose. Payroll employment in November increased a soft 39000, following a revised 172000 boost in October and a 24000 dip in September. The latest figure fell short of the median forecast for a 168000 advance. The September and October revisions were net up 38000. Private sector payrolls increase 50000 in November, following a 160000 boost the month before. Weakness in the latest month was in goods-producing and government sector jobs. Good-producing employment declined 15000, following a 3000 rise in October. In the latest month, manufacturing fell 13000; construction slipped 5000; and mining rose 4000. Private service-providing gained 65000 after a 157000 increase in October. Within private services for November, professional & business services gained 53000; health care rose 23000 jobs; and leisure & hospitality increased 11000. On the downside, retail trade fell 28000. Average hourly earnings were flat in November after rising 0.3 percent the prior month. The latest figure came in below the consensus projection for a 0.2 percent increase. The average workweek for all workers was unchanged at 34.3 hours, equaling expectations for 34.3 hours. Turning to the household survey, the unemployment rate bumped up to 9.8 percent from 9.6 percent in October, topping analysts' forecast for 9.7 percent. The ...

(Reuters) - Gold prices rose to an all-time high within a few dollars of $1400 an ounce on Friday as the US Federal Reserve's program to resume buying government bonds stoked inflation worries. - (Realestate.com) Renting is expected to become even more expensive due to a boost in population and a shortfall of new homes being built. For people caught up in the rental cycle, the process of securing a property at a reasonable price is likely to become trickier over the next year, a series of recent rental surveys show. - (Press TV) New records show the US homeownership during the third quarter has remained steadily unchanged, continuing to languish at its lowest level in almost 11 years. According to latest figures published by the United States Census Bureau -- a leading source of data about America's people and economy -- the number of Americans living in homes they own has shrunk to 66.9%, the lowest level since 1999. - (Bloomberg) More Americans than forecast filed applications for unemployment benefits last week, showing the labor market will take time to improve.

Phony Navy SEAL, Kurt Allen Wilkinson from Michigan, is our "PHONY NAVY SEAL of the WEEK." Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley exposes Phony Navy SEALs and Military Impostors. www.pownetwork.org www.state.mi.us en.netlog.com www.youtube.com What does a liar do when his lie is exposed? He lies. It seems the subject of our Stolen Valor series which stretches across several 360 pages has backtracked from his original statement in private that the picture of PO2 Dietz is him. Kurt Wilkinson now says this in his blog blast: "I am a seal and I apologize for the picture, MY PICTURE is there and ws NOT out of Disrepect at all ...just a respectfull I AM in there running thing..." Kurt: You are NOT a SeAL. The Jig is up. There is no lie you can tell to overcome the lies you've already told. It is time for you to come clean. Tell all the women (and few men) on your list that you are a liar, that you have stolen the valor of two fallen heroes. Quit threatening those that have exposed you. KURT: You are a COWARD. You are obviously so lacking in ability and merit of your own that you feel you must lie to attract women. You are a disgusting, despicable POS. And by the way, learn to spell. It is NOT respectful to claim the pictures of men that were killed in service to their country to be you. Now he claims publicly that the picture of Scott Helveston, taken from a 1992 Seals Calender is him. Who is Scott Helveston? Scott was a REAL SEAL who served his tour of duty honorably and after his ...

(Reuters) - Gold steadied on Friday after its first weekly decline in nearly 3 months, with bullion investors keeping an eye on any statements from the G20 meeting. - AP) NEW YORK (AP) - Treasurys were mixed in a quiet day of trading Friday, as bond buyers look toward an upcoming meeting of the Federal Reserve. The 10-year note was down 12.5 cents to $100.53, raising the yield to 2.56 percent from 2.54 percent late Thursday. The yield on the 30-year bond slipped to 3.93 percent from 3.95 percent, as the price rose 43.7 cents on the dollar to $98.90.

But job creation was weak in most areas of the country. Unemployment fell in 23 states and Washington, DC, rose in 11 states and was unchanged in 16 during September, the Labor Department said Friday. The declines were nearly double the number reported by states in the previous month. - (Press TV) British retail sales unexpectedly fell for a 2nd month in a row in September, driven lower by weak clothing and fuel sales, meaning consumer spending is slowing.

Director for labor market policy at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) DW-TV: Well it looks like the US hire-and-fire principle has finally crossed the Atlantic and reached the German job market. Let's find out. I'm joined by Hilmar Schneider, director for labor market policy at the Institute for the Study of Labor. So, what do you say? Are short-term contracts just a trend or are they here to stay? Hilmar Schneider: Well, they are likely to stay, but still it's not the hire-and-fire labor market like in the US. We still have a strong employment protection in Germany, but this is the reason why some kind of replacement instruments get stronger and stronger. That means since during the labor market reforms between 2003 and 2005 these instruments were introduced, firms are now heavily making use of it. Since these are instruments that allow firms to circumvent the strong employment protection. But once you get across the hurdle, you get a unlimited contract, then you're subject to employment protection and then things are as they used to be. DW-TV: Right, but that's going to be more and more difficult from now on, as we've just heard. We also just learned how employees feel about having a short-term contract. But what about the employer? Are there any pitfalls for the employer, perhaps, as well? Hilmar Schneider: Well, I mean, since this liberalization of the labor market, the labor market has really been boosted in Germany. There's much more willingness to hire ...
Greg Afarian's Market Report for the week of 6/28 to 7/2. This has been a pretty negative week for stocks and the housing sector.

US jobless claims jumped 13000 to 472000 last week, according to Labor Department data showed Thursday in Washington. As an indicator that the labor market's recovery is slowing down, the number of Americans who applied for jobless benefits last week increased, as did the amount of individuals receiving unemployment insurance, Bloomberg reports. "The labor market is not generating employment for anyone, even for people who have been out a long time," said Mizuho Securities USA Inc's chief economist Steven Ricchiuto. "What we're seeing in the backup of claims is not a particularly healthy story, showing we can't generate upside momentum in the labor market." Economic analysts expected a drop to 455000 in jobless applications, following the prior week's 457000 reported claims.

Thousands of Americans enduring long-term unemployment could start losing their 99 week jobless benefits!!! This affects people if they've been collecting unemployment insurance for close to the overall state-plus-federal maximum term, which right now is typically 99 weeks in most states with high unemployment. When the extended benefit expires next week, those entering their 100th week will start losing benefits, unless this legislation gets passed by the House and Senate and signed by President Obama. So please, anybody that has exhausted all 99 weeks, please encourage Congress to add additional weeks on top of the current 99 weeks. Thank you.
The National Employment Law Project said that about 1.2 million jobless workers may be "cut off" from federal unemployment benefits next month if Congress does not pass an extension soon. The House may vote as early as Tuesday on extending the benefits and the Senate could consider the bill later this week, according to congressional aides. National Employment Law Project's executive director Christine Owens said, "Unemployed Americans are pulling their hair out -- and they are looking to Congress for help. Even if it means staying in Washington as the congressional recess approaches, the unemployment bill must move forward."

Republican Senator from Kentucky, Jim Bunning, blocked unemployment benefits from clearing the senate last week. The legislation, which had already passed the house, would have extended emergency unemployment benefits for an additional month. Without action, the National Employment Law Project, an advocacy organization for lower-paid workers, is estimating that nearly 1.2 million jobless workers will lose benefits by the end of March. Democrats oppose Bunning's view that leftover funds from the 2008 stimulus package should be used to pay for the bill. Arizona Republican, Senator Jon Kyl, said on Fox News Sunday that despite his agreement with his colleague Senator Bunning that QUOTE "it ought to be paid for", he says the legislation will ultimately pass because it is a temporary extension of benefits, versus a lasting piece of legislation. On the docket this week - the senate will look at 31 billion dollars in corporate tax breaks and the extension of added benefits for the jobless. The house will be moving forward with the 15 billion dollar jobs bill passed by the senate last week. The US jobless rate currently stands at 9.7 percent.

www.TheContrarianTraders.com Folks, current Federal Reserve interest rate policy is allowing cheap money to pump this market higher. Friday's employment data which came in worse than expected allowed traders to pump the market higher due to the perception that the Federal Reserve would remain dovish on rates. The AIG bailout and Goldman Sach's gain from that bailout will have Treasury Secretary Githner on the hot seat in Congress later this month and possibly out of a job.

According to ANN, Funimation has acquired Spice and Wolf (first season), and announced the dub cast of Eva 1.0. Kai-Ming Cha reports that Hayao Miyazaki will be in UC Berkeley to receive an award in late July, same weekend as the San Diego Comic-Con. ANN tells us that Miyazaki's latest film, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, will premiere in the US at the LA Film Festival June 28th, then go nation-wide August 14th. Meanwhile, Yoshitoshi ABe (lain, Haibane Renmei) is working on a new show called Despera with several lain staffers. (Source: ANN) And there's a new ep of Haruhi! As part of the re-airing of the original series. ANN reports that Christopher Handley, the Iowan who imported loli rape hentai manga, pled guilty on Wednesday "to possessing drawings of children being sexually abused." He faces up to 15 years and up to US$250K in fines, though the sentence is still to be handed out, and will likely be less because he's co-operated with authorities so much. DannyChoo.com tells us of a new, Japanese-government-sponsored anime about jury duty, Bokura no Saibanin Monogatari. Finally, also from ANN, ccording to the Japan Animation Creators Association (Janica), animators in their 20's working on anime earn an average annual salary of about US$11K. This is based on a survey of 700 animators and directors. But when you hit your 30's, hey! You're up to a whole $22K. By your 40's and 50's, you're at $31K. Worse, 47% had no employment contract, so they can be terminated at-will.
THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Important steps are being taken in the Congress this week with respect to three major parts of the Administration's program and I want to take this opportunity to stress their importance to every American family. First, hearings are being completed in both Houses on the Youth Employment Opportunities Bill, and I hope this measure can be enacted before the Easter recess. One million of our youth are out of school and out of work, creating an explosive social situation in nearly every community. This bill would put their hands to work, and minds, in our parks and forests, manning our hospitals and juvenile centers, and developing skills and work experience which will help them in later life. Secondly, hearings have been completed in the House on our bill to train more physicians and dentists, to expand our medical colleges, and to provide loans to deserving students with our population increasing every year. With the number of doctors and dentists in relation to that population increase deteriorating, it really seems a waste of our most valuable resources, which are our skills, to turn deserving young men and women away from our medical schools because they can't afford to go. We need them and we need their talents, and I hope this bill will pass. Third, hearings begin in the Senate this week on our bills to combat mental illness and mental retardation. Almost every American family at some stage will experience or has experienced a case of ...
Week 4 of the recovery special - What GDP means to the recession... Hi Guys, Welcome to week 4 of the Recovery Special! Apologies for the lack of news last week - I was in Ireland for St Paddy's day :) But we're back this week and first up I'll be taking you through a quick review of the what's happening in property. First up the backlash against new FSA regulations which may stop you from getting a mortgage if its value is more than 3 times your income. Next we'll take a look overseas at the US market and how they're solving their toxic loan problems. We'll be looking at why Sir David Tang is saying that optimism is a cure for the economic downturn and how your mindset is crucial to beat the recession. Finally we'll look at why there is a select portion of the market where prices are on the rise and why getting in now is so important. The Recovery Special presentation will take a look at GDP what it is, how it's calculated and how we can use it to predict the length and severity of this recession. You'll learn why actions and emotions are your best defense and why you need to act now or miss out on a massive opportunity! If you have any questions or want to know more then give the team a call on 0207 812 1255 or visit www.YourPropertyClub.com Happy watching, Brett Alegre-Wood
Google turned 10 years old on Monday. Happy Birthday Google. Ten years after 2 Stanford Grad students launched Google from a friend's garage, Google now employs 20000 people worldwide, operates out of the 1.5 million square foot "Googleplex," overseas hundreds of thousands of computers in massive data centers, receives over 1 million applications for employment per year and enjoys a market value of $150 billion. Wow, how are they going to top that over the next 10 years? Well, they certainly intend to try, as they are continually expanding into new markets, but they are greeted by increasing opposition as various groups grow concerned over Google's growing power. Earlier this week, the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) voiced their opposition to the pending Google-Yahoo! partnership. The ANA expressed concern over the proposed agreement and the PPC search-marketing share it would provide Google. This powerful organization represents over 400 companies and 9000 brands, including Coca-Cola, Exxon Mobil and General Motors. This mounting pressure against Google's expansion comes in addition to an existing probe by the Department of Justice, initiated to determine if Google's success and near PPC advertising monopoly, are actually harming advertisers. Privacy groups have also expressed concern over Google's collection of information for more than 650 million people who use their services. Despite increasing concern over Google's enormous and growing online empire, the ...
