ESTIMATED NONFARM EMPLOYMENT IN VERMONT(Not Seasonally Adjusted) Current Employment Statistics Program (CES). Produced by the Vermont Department of Labor in cooperation with the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics. TotalNumberNumberSept-11Aug-11Sept-10AreaLabor ForceEmployedUnemployedRate (%)Rate (%)Rate (%) Program Update: Starting with the March 2011 numbers, the Current Employment Statistics (CES) estimates transitioned from the VT Department of Labor to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS implemented 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.

Compared to a year ago, the rate is lower by one-tenth of a percentage point. The Vermont unemployment rate continues to be well below the national rate. In September 2011, the seasonally-adjusted national unemployment rate was 9.1 percent. The United States has held steady at this rate for the last three months. ‘This monthly data was the first glimpse into the economic picture post-Irene. While the destruction caused by the storm was extensive and wide spread, it did create economic opportunities. The recovery effort generated job openings and enticed discouraged workers to return to the labor force. During the recovery, the Vermont Department of Labor’s Career Resource Centers’ services have effectively assisted employers by matching them with potential employees. Employers are encouraged to continue to leverage these services and list employment opportunities with the Department of Labor. Overall, weare excited to see tremendous cooperation between public and private entities working on Vermont’s recovery,’ said Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan.State of Vermont OverviewThe Vermont seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased by one-tenth of a percent in Septemberto 5.8 percent. The comparable rateover the same time period for the United States was unchanged; remaining stable at 9.1 percent.The seasonally-adjusted Vermont data show the total Vermont labor force grew by 2,300. Total employmentincreased by 2,100 while total unemployment was unchanged over the month. Theover the month changesto the total labor force and total employment were statistically significant.September unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 4.0 percent in Hartford to 7.7 percent in Newport (note: local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted). For comparison, theSeptember unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 5.2 percent which reflects a decrease of two-tenths of a percent from the August level and a decline of three-tenths of a percent from a year ago.Analysis of Job Changes by IndustryThe preliminary ‘not seasonally adjusted’ jobs numbers for September show anincrease of 7,600 jobs when compared to the revised August numbers. This reported over the month change does not include the 100 job increase between the preliminary and the revised August estimates due to the inclusion of more data. As detailed in the preliminary ‘not seasonally adjusted’September data, Total Private displays a decrease of 2,950 jobs and Government reports an increase of 10,550 jobs. The positive increase to Government was driven by typical seasonal fluctuations in the public education system as reflected in the over the month changes in both State Government Education and Local Government Education, +2,400 and +9,150 jobs, respectively.In the private sector, Educational and Health Services (+1,200 jobs) reported the largest nominal increase while Leisure and Hospitality (-2,800 jobs) reported the largest nominal decrease.The seasonally adjusted data for Septemberreports an increase of 700 jobs from the revised August data. As with the ‘not seasonally adjusted’ data, this over the month change is from the revised August numbers which experienced a downward revision from the preliminary estimates by300 jobs. A review of the seasonally adjusted Septembernumbers reflects that the large nominal over the month changes reported in the non-seasonally adjusted data were seasonal in nature and typical. The seasonally adjusted data had few over the month changes of significant magnitude. Vermont’s Private Industries reported a decrease of 200 jobs while Total Government reported a 900 job increase. The private industries of note were Manufacturing (-500 jobs) and Professional & Business Services (+500 jobs).

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:NV Energy one-upped its huge 2018 solar and storage procurement on Tuesday, announcing three new solar projects totaling 1,200 megawatts paired with 590 megawatts of battery storage.Colin Smith, a senior solar analyst at Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, called the procurement “hulkingly big.” When built, one of the projects — at 690 megawatts — will be the largest solar plant in the U.S., according to tracking from WoodMacThe three solar-plus-storage projects, developed by 8minute Solar Energy, EDF Renewables and Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and Arevia Power, should be complete by 2023. Two will be built on the Moapa Band of Paiutes Indian River Reservation, in partnership with the tribe.Aside from their massive size, the contracts also come as a vote of confidence in utility-scale solar-plus-storage, according to analysts. Developer 8minute said its project could run 65 percent of the time during peak summer hours, as opposed to the 29.9 percent availability of the average solar plant in Nevada. “That’s really a paradigm shift from the utility had to take my power whenever the sun was shining to the utility telling us what their customer’s needs are and we design and engineer a power plant to fit those criteria,” said Tom Buttgenbach, president and CEO at 8minute. “The days of renewable equals intermittent and a headache for utilities to integrate into their systems is now reversed to where this delivers exactly what the utility wants.”WoodMac’s Smith said the back-to-back, big-time procurements show that utilities can make the quick transition towards renewable resources that’s under discussion in states and at the federal level through policies like the Green New Deal. “When we go back to the question of, can we make the transition fast enough to help climate change, it’s easy to point to someone like NV Energy, which is a pretty large utility in a pretty large state,” said Smith. “They’re moving towards renewables at a pretty rapid pace.”More: NV Energy announces ‘hulkingly big’ solar-plus-storage procurement Nevada utility announces another round of massive solar-plus-storage projects
The city of Varaždin on Franjevački trg received a new artistic urban installation – an interactive bench. The idea of the bench is to symbolize the musical heritage of Varaždin, one of the most important elements of the city’s identity, which is proud of its long, rich and vibrant musical tradition and scene.The bench is designed so that it has five surfaces that produce sound and emit light under load. The sound samples, created by Varaždin music artist Emil Herceg, are ambient, as is the light produced, and the interactivity and modularity of the design allows the tonal setting to change depending on the time of day, season or other authors.This is an intervention in space realized through the project “Art on the street – urban furniture in the function of tourism” which the Tourist Board of the City of Varaždin has been continuously implementing since 2012. The aim of the project is to enrich the public space of Varaždin with permanent artistic creations that strengthen the city’s identity, enrich its cultural and tourist image and strengthen the comfort of living and living in Varaždin.So far, as part of this project, a number of art installations have been set up in the historic city center, such as the city’s “roommates” (turtles, mermaids, iron man…), the installation View and Birds, benches Obluci, the Royal Chair, Krinolina ljubavi, the installation Varaždinsko zelje and Varaždinski clip, etc.The project of setting up specially designed and designed benches was created as a result of creative cooperation of TZGV with mentors and students of the Design Studio of the Zagreb Faculty of Architecture and young Croatian product designers.The interactive music bench, which is set up on Franjevački trg in front of the former Varteks department store, is the result of cooperation with Zagreb’s Studio Clinica, which specializes in product design and the design of interpretation setups for various institutions. Based on their idea, the bench was made and equipped by the Varaždin team.
Japan’s SoftBank Group said Monday it is selling British chip designer Arm to United States chip company NVIDIA for up to US$40 billion, potentially creating a new giant in the industry.”We reached a final agreement with… NVIDIA to sell all shares in Arm… at the value of up to 40 billion dollars (about 4.2 trillion yen),” SoftBank said in a Japanese statement.The deal is subject to approval by authorities in several jurisdictions, including Britain, China, the United States and European Union, the statement added. If approved, it will be one of the biggest merger-acquisitions in the world this year and promises to propel NVIDIA to the forefront of the semiconductor sector.Founded in 1990 in the United Kingdom, Arm specialises in microprocessors, and dominates the global smartphone market. But its chips are also found in countless sensors, smart devices and cloud services.NVIDIA, well known for graphics cards that are favoured in the video game industry, has seen sales skyrocket during the coronavirus crisis, with gaming a popular past-time in lockdown.Its products are also increasingly used for artificial intelligence and in data centres. SoftBank bought Arm in 2016 for $32 billion in a deal that left investors cold and saw the conglomerate’s stock plunge sharply.Analysts at the time said SoftBank had paid too much for the firm and the purchase revived concerns about the Japanese company’s balance sheet.NVIDIA said in a statement that under the deal it will pay SoftBank $21.5 billion in common stock and $12 billion in case, $2 billion of which will be payable at signing.SoftBank may receive up to another $5 billion in cash or stock, dependent on Arm’s performance.And NVIDIA will also issue $1.5 billion in equity to Arm employees, for a deal worth a total of up to $40 billion.SoftBank said it felt Arm would perform better in combination with NVIDIA and the sale would “contribute to an increase in our company’s value for shareholders”. It said the deal would give it a combined total of 6.7-8.1 percent in NVIDIA’s outstanding shares, but insisted that would not make the US firm a subsidiary or affiliate.Topics :

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) has achieved 50% completion mark, nearly 16 months after the start of the construction. This includes all engineering, procurement and construction scope, TAP informed.TAP’s contractors have cleared around 70% of the project route in Greece and Albania, approximately 539km out of 765km.Approximately 95% of the total 55,000 pipes to be used for the construction of the pipeline have been received in Greece, Albania and Italy. The last shipment of offshore line pipes has been offloaded in Brindisi, Italy, between September 3 and 6, 2017, the company noted.TAP managing director Luca Schieppati said: “We are pleased that TAP continues to progress on time and on budget. We therefore remain on track to deliver the first Shah Deniz II gas in 2020, bringing a much-needed new source of energy into the European energy network.“I want to underline that our project is built with the utmost care for the environment. Our teams are working very carefully along our route to ensure that the land on which construction has been completed is returned to the owners or users in its original condition or better. We are also collaborating with local authorities and local stakeholders to ensure that the benefits of our project are tangible across all those communities crossed by the pipeline.”
Lower depreciation expenses and vessel impairments during 2018 led Singapore-based shipowner First Ship Lease Trust to end the year in loss.The company managed to shrink the net loss on an annual basis,and in 2018 reported USD 18.9 million net loss, a cut of 74.3% compared to a net loss of USD 73.8 million seen a year earlier.In the fourth quarter of 2018, FSL’s net loss stood at USD 18.5 million, against a net loss of USD 33.8 million reported in the same period in 2017.Impairment charges for the quarter, and the full year, were at USD 20.6 million.FSL generated revenue of USD 18.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 and USD 67 million for the full year, a 6.8% and 17.7% decline compared to the same period a year ago, respectively.The company said the lower revenue for both the fourth quarter and full year was the result of a reduced fleet following the disposal of a chemical tanker in early 2018, and the disposal of two feeder containerships in late 2017 reducing the fleet size to 19.In addition to a reduced fleet, the company said the revenues were impacted by the ongoing market volatility and continued softening of rates across all shipping sectors, which has weighed on FSL’s earnings.“Having successfully completed a much needed refinancing in the summer of 2018, FSL’s balance sheet was strengthened and the viability of the business was protected. Profit before impairments during FY18 was USD 1.6 million,” Stathis Topouzoglou, Chairman of the Trust, said.First Ship Lease Trust owns a fleet of 19 vessels, comprising three containerships, twelve product tankers, two chemical tankers and two crude oil tankers.
