Online job demand up 600 in Vermont, flat across US

first_imgOnline advertised vacancies was up a solid 600 jobs in Vermont while they only inched up nationally by 19,600 in June to 4,154,000 following a small decline in May, according to The Conference Board Help Wanted OnLine (HWOL) Data Series released today.  New York and New Hampshire also showed strong gains. The gap between the number of unemployed and advertised vacancies (supply/demand rate) stood at 3.62 unemployed for every advertised vacancy in May (the last available unemployment data) but is down from 4.73 in October 2009. – Job demand remained essentially unchanged in May and June but up over 500,000 nationally during the first 6 months of 2010- Demand for sales workers continues to climb- Job demand is strong in several states in the Northeast including NY, NJ & PA- NOTE: The June release incorporates new seasonal adjustment factors”In the last two months, labor demand has been little changed following a strong start for Spring hiring in April,” said June Shelp, vice president at The Conference Board. “Thus far, job demand has been uneven across geographies and occupations, and weakness in the housing market is one factor. While all states have experienced some positive upturn in labor demand, states that were heavily impacted by the housing market downturn, in general, are rebounding more slowly. Also, occupations that are most closely associated with real estate—construction, architecture and engineering, and legal—have been slower to advertise for additional workers while the labor demand in other occupations such as sales, entertainment, food preparation, and healthcare and personal care have already risen to pre-recession levels.”REGIONAL AND STATE HIGHLIGHTSJune job demand strong in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania in the Northeast and North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia in the SouthIn the Northeast region, online advertised vacancies in June were up 50,600, showing strength in several of the large states. Among the large States that have shown gains in recent months, New York was up 23,800 in June to its highest level since March 2008.  Pennsylvania gained for the fourth straight month, up 15,000 in June, and reached its highest level since October 2008.  New Jersey increased by 11,700 and reached its highest level since March 2008.  Massachusetts decreased by a slim 2,000.  Among the smaller States, June job demand in New Hampshire was up by 1,700, Rhode Island gained 700, Vermont rose 600, and Connecticut dropped 3,300 while Maine was down 1,200.In June, labor demand in the West dropped by 51,600, reflecting in large part a decline of 46,800 in California, the most populous State in the region.  Arizona and Colorado experienced drops of 5,200 and 2,900 respectively. Washington State gained 2,100.  Among the smaller States, Oregon gained 1,100, New Mexico increased by 800, and Nevada inched up 700 while Alaska dropped 1,600 and Hawaii fell 1,300.The Midwest declined this month by 21,300.  Illinois experienced the largest drop in the region (9,800).  Missouri was down 6,600, Minnesota fell 6,200, and Michigan declined by 2,200.  Wisconsin and Ohio continued to gain momentum and rose 8,400 and 5,500, respectively.  Among the States with smaller populations, Indiana decreased 1,800 while North Dakota was up 1,700.The South rose in June by 49,200, reflecting significant gains by some States and lessening declines in the others.  Texas led the way with a gain of 25,800 (most in the country), North Carolina rose 12,200 in June to 110,900, and Virginia rose 10,400 to 178,500.  Among the most populous States with declines in June, Georgia and Maryland decreased 2,800 and 4,300, respectively, while Florida remained unchanged. Among the less populous states in the South, advertised vacancies in Oklahoma increased by 1,900 in June while Louisiana decreased by 800 and Kentucky decreased by 200.The Supply/Demand rate for the U.S. in May (the latest month for which unemployment numbers are available) was at 3.62, indicating that there just under 4 unemployed workers for every online advertised vacancy.  Nationally there are just over 10 million more unemployed workers than advertised vacancies.  States with some of the lowest rates include North Dakota(1.24), South Dakota (1.51), Alaska (1.53), and Nebraska (1.57), where the Supply/Demand rates reflected the fact that there was just over one unemployed for every online advertised vacancy. Among the States, the highest Supply/Demand rates are in Mississippi (7.63) and Michigan (7.22), where there are over 7 unemployed people for every advertised vacancy.  Although still among the highest in the Nation, Michigan’s S/D rate has improved significantly from the 10.2 in July 2009 when there were just over 10 unemployed for every online advertised vacancy.  Other states where there are over 5 unemployed for every advertised vacancy are Kentucky (5.38), Indiana (5.22), and Florida (5.08).It should be noted that the Supply/Demand rate only provides a measure of relative tightness of the individual state labor markets and does not suggest that the occupations of the unemployed directly align with the occupations of the advertised vacancies.OCCUPATIONAL HIGHLIGHTSDemand for Healthcare Practitioners and Technical workers rises 52,000 in JuneOnline demand for occupations such as Healthcare Support, Personal Care, Sales, and Food Preparation & Service are at or near all-time highsIn June, the trend in online demand in a range of service occupations like healthcare support, sales workers, food preparation, and community and social services continued to be strong.  In these occupations advertised vacancies are at or near their all-time highs since the HWOL series began in May 2005.  Other occupations, including those most closely associated with the real estate and construction industry and production, continue to lag behind pre-recession levels.  While demand for traditional “office” occupations – including administrative occupations, business and finance, and management occupations – rose, these occupations continue to lag behind the levels seen before the recession.Among the top 10 occupation groups with the largest numbers of online advertised vacancies, Healthcare Practitioners and Technical occupations posted the largest June increase, up 51,900 to 592,300.  The June rise was largely due to increases in demand for physical and occupational therapists, registered nurses, physicians and surgeons, and family and general practitioners.  Healthcare Support occupations, which remained relatively strong throughout the recession, rose 2,100 in June to 113,900.Healthcare is a broad field, and the relative tightness of the labor market varies substantially from the higher-paying practitioner and technical jobs to the lower-paying support occupations.  In May, the latest month for which unemployment data are available, advertised vacancies for healthcare practitioners or technical occupations outnumbered the unemployed looking for work in this field by nearly 3 to 1, and the average wage in these occupations is $33.51/hour.  In sharp contrast, the average wage for healthcare support occupations is $12.84/hour and there were over 2 unemployed looking for work in the field for every online advertised vacancy.  Computer and Mathematical Science occupations were down 12,700 to 554,900 in June.  The drop was largely due to decreases in demand for computer systems analysts, computer software engineers, and computer support specialists.  Like the demand for healthcare practitioners, demand for workers in this occupational category exceeds the number of unemployed looking for work by 3 to 1.  Management occupations declined 10,000 to 540,300 in June.  The June decrease largely reflects decreases in demand for sales managers, storage and distribution managers, marketing managers, and computer and information systems managers.  Demand for Business and Financial Operations rose 3,600 to 215,600.  In both of these areas the balance between the number of unemployed looking for work and advertised vacancies was relatively in line with or slightly over one job-seeker for each advertised vacancy.Office and Administrative Support occupations experienced a June decline of 4,300 to 399,500.  The June dip reflects decreases in postings for a wide variety of occupations including tellers, first-line supervisors/managers of office and administrative support workers, data entry keyers, and payroll and timekeeping clerks.  In this field there are over 4 unemployed for every advertised vacancy.Supply/Demand rates indicated that, among the occupations with the largest number of online advertised vacancies, there is a significant difference in the number of unemployed seeking positions in these occupations.  Among the top ten occupations advertised online, there were more vacancies than unemployed people seeking positions for Healthcare Practitioners (0.4), Computer and Mathematical Science (0.4), and Architecture and Engineering (0.9).  On the other hand, in Sales and Related Occupations, there were over three people seeking jobs in this field for every online advertised vacancy (3.4) and there were over four unemployed looking for work in Office and Administrative Support positions for every advertised opening (4.1).METRO AREA HIGHLIGHTSWashington, D.C., Baltimore, and Honolulu have the lowest Supply/Demand rates Washington, D.C. is the one area in which the number of advertised vacancies exceeds the number of unemployedWith the exception of New Orleans, online advertised vacancies in all of the 52 largest metropolitan areas are above last year’s levelsIn June, 51 of the 52 metropolitan areas for which data are reported separately posted over-the-year increases in the number of online advertised vacancies; New Orleans posted a slight decrease.  Among the three metro areas with the largest numbers of advertised vacancies, the New York metro area was 45 percent above its June 2009 level, the Washington, D.C. metro area was 28 percent above its June 2009 level, and the Los Angeles metro area was 8 percent above last year’s level.The number of unemployed exceeded the number of advertised vacancies in 51 of the 52 metro areas for which information is reported separately; Washington, D.C. was the exception.  Baltimore, Honolulu, and Oklahoma City were the locations with the next most favorable supply/demand rates, where the number of unemployed looking for work was only slightly larger than the number of advertised vacancies.  On the other hand, metro areas in which the respective number of unemployed is substantially above the number of online advertised vacancies include Riverside, CA, where there are over 9 unemployed people for every advertised vacancy (9.2), Detroit (7.3), Sacramento (4.8), and Miami (4.7).  Supply/Demand rate data are forApril 2010, the latest month for which unemployment data for local areas are available.PROGRAM NOTESThe Conference Board Help Wanted OnLine™ Data Series measures the number of new, first-time online jobs and jobs reposted from the previous month on more than 1,200 major Internet job boards and smaller job boards that serve niche markets and smaller geographic areas.Like The Conference Board’s long-running Help Wanted Advertising Index of print ads (which was published for over 55 years and discontinued in May 2008 but continues to be available for research), the new online series is not a direct measure of job vacancies. The level of ads in both print and online may change for reasons not related to overall job demand.With the June 1, 2008 release, HWOL began providing seasonally adjusted data for the U.S., the 9 Census regions and 50 States. Seasonally adjusted data for occupations was provided beginning with the July 1, 2009 release. This data series, for which the earliest data is June 2005, continues to publish not seasonally adjusted data for 52 large metropolitan areas, but it is The Conference Board’s intent to provide seasonally adjusted data for large metro areas in the future.People using this data are urged to review the information on the database and methodology available on The Conference Board website and contact the person listed at the top of this release with questions and comments.  Background information and technical notes on this new series are available at: http://www.conference-board.org/data/helpwantedonline.cfm(link is external).The underlying data for this series is provided by Wanted Technologies Corporation.  Additional information on the Bureau of Labor Statistics data used in this release can be found on the BLS website, www.bls.gov(link is external).The Conference BoardThe Conference Board is a global, independent business membership and research association working in the public interest.

Bordeaux Coach Gives Reason Why Maja is not Getting Enough Playing…

first_img“His main strong characteristic is the ability to strike even in small spaces.“All the rest he works to improve it to have a good volume of play with and without a ball, to help the team. He has already done so. I hope and I am sure he will help us”.With Jimmy Briand ruled out of Sunday’s match against OGC Nice, Maja stands a good chance of making the starting line-up.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Bordeaux coach Paulo Sousa has explained why Super Eagles striker Josh Maja is not getting enough minutes at the French Ligue 1 club.The former Sunderland wonderkid has the title of being the most efficient Nigerian striker playing in the top five European Leagues, scoring a goal every 123 minutes. Of his 22 appearances for Bordeaux in all competitions this season, Maja has managed only seven starts, including five in Ligue 1.“Josh is still a player at the moment who needs a team that has good control of the ball to be as close as possible to the opponent’s area because he is a player in small spaces in our team who can do the difference,” Web Girondins quoted Sousa as saying.last_img read more

Cody Bellinger is making difficult things look easy

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers can’t lose for winning.On Sunday they fell behind 5-0, largely thanks to Brandon McCarthy’s three wild pitches.They were playing their second baseman (Logan Forsythe) at first, their first baseman (Cody Bellinger) in right, their super-utility man (Kiké Hernandez) at shortstop, their backup catcher (Austin Barnes) at second and a pedigreed shortstop (Chris Taylor) in left.The day droned on, quiet and hot, and then you started seeing things. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The strike zone somehow contracted in the heat. Five Dodgers scored on wild pitches, which hasn’t happened since “baseball” was two words.Kenley Jansen, the closer, stroked a double to the wall and drove in a run. If he’d done that more often as a minor league catcher, he wouldn’t be pitching today. But he also gave up his first walk, four days into the official summer.The Dodgers won, 12-6. They did have one constant, although he only showed up on April 25.Bellinger hit home run No. 23, beat out a fairly routine ground ball to shortstop, sprinted and made a barrel-roll catch in right field, and then fired his 24th home run into the right-field pavilion like American Sniper.The personal history is getting longer with Bellinger and yet the words are drying up. “He is not of this earth!” yells play-by-play man Charley Steiner. If Bellinger had only half as many homers he would still be a sensation.center_img Bellinger says the ball “is looking real big” right now, at least until he hits it, and he said he’s enjoying the “cat and mouse” game with the pitchers. They are not. Tom has eaten a whole nest of Jerrys by now.The second home run prompted Bellinger’s first curtain call.“I don’t know what took so long,” McCarthy said. “He should be three or four curtain calls deep by now.”Yet with all these leisurely trots around the bases, it was revelatory to see Bellinger digging to beat a throw by shortstop Pat Valaika, who kicked everything into gear a little too late. Plus, Bellinger hasn’t played much right field.“I’d played more right than left in Double-A, I think,” he said. “On the catch, it was a weird one. I thought it was more toward center and I started running hard, and then it started tailing toward me and I thought, ‘This is mine,’ and I got a glove on it.”That catch came with two out in the seventh, off Valaika’s bat, and it happened with L.A. down 6-4 and with Rockies on first and second.Hold-the-fort plays like that are easily forgotten, as was the one by Barnes in the second inning. Colorado had scored three times, and Charlie Blackmon, author of 56 RBI from the leadoff spot, shot a hard grounder toward right field with a man on. Barnes scooted and picked it and threw out Blackmon.“Things like that are game-changers,” said Manager Dave Roberts. “But we’re going to keep grinding it out. We have been making guys continue to make pitches. What we’re doing to pitching staffs … there’s a relentless kind of approach to what we’re doing.”Translated, the Dodgers have stepped on home plate 76 times in the past nine games, and have homered in each of their previous 17.And there was serendipity, too. Colorado’s Adam Ottavino was walking off the mound with strike three in his pocket, in the seventh inning, when home umpire Mark Carlson refused to move his right arm. Rockies manager Bud Black did throw up his hands, but Barnes walked, and then came two wild pitches and three Dodgers runs, the last two scoring because catcher Tony Wolters couldn’t locate the ball.If Barnes strikes out, Colorado carries a 6-4 lead into the eighth. Instead the Dodgers led, 7-6, and Bellinger keyed a five-run eighth.No one in all of baseball’s pages has gotten to 22, 23 and 24 home runs quicker than Bellinger. No rookie has hit 24 home runs before the All-Star break since 1933, the first year of the All-Star Game. No rookie except Mark McGwire has had more than six multi-homer games in a season, and McGwire had seven, and Bellinger and the Dodgers have 85 games left.“He’s unconscious right now,” McCarthy said. “It’s great that he can ride this as long as he can.”But with numbers that defy perspective, what keeps a 21-year-old from becoming a Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade inflatable and floating into neverland?“I’m going to come in tomorrow like this didn’t happen,” Bellinger said.Then he paid homage to a clubhouse fixture since 1969, a man who has seen Rookies of the Year stay and go and prosper and fail.“Manny Mota always comes in,” Bellinger said. “He always reminds me that I already got paid for yesterday.”Somehow the days are running together like weird visions in a formidable sun. But no mirage lasts this long.last_img read more

Report More allegations of Zach Smith abuse emerge

Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith talks to junior wide receiver Eric Glover-Williams prior to fall camp on Aug. 5. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports Editor.Courtney Smith, the ex-wife of former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith, reported violent acts performed against her to the Powell Police Department, including choking, physical abuse and death threats in October 2015, according to a report from the Columbus Dispatch. According to reporters Dean Narciso and Rita Price, Ohio State sent a lawyer to speak to Courtney Smith in her home in Powell and tried to convince her to drop the charges because, “it would embarrass OSU if she proceeded with the prosecution.” Ohio State spokesman Chris Davey told the Columbus Dispatch the university was unaware of any allegations made and would investigate. The Lantern reached out to Ohio State for comment, but did not receive a response at the time of publication. According to the reports acquired by the Dispatch, Courtney Smith reported multiple incidents of domestic violence against her, including events where, “the suspect choked her until she could not breathe” and Courtney Smith telling the police, “the suspect tells her all the time that he will kill her.” The report acquired by the Dispatch said Zach Smith’s actions against Courtney Smith stemmed from allegations she made against him that he was cheating on her with other women. Zach Smith was fired from Ohio State on July 23 after allegations were released against him for domestic violence against his ex-wife. read more

ExMan Utd star Time for Mourinho to get sacked

first_imgPaul Ince believes that Jose Mourinho has had long enough and is out of excuses at Manchester UnitedAfter winning three pieces of silverware in his first season in charge at United, Mourinho has since failed to deliver any more trophies to Old Trafford and is enduring an extremely challenging time right now.The under-fire Portuguese coach has won just five of his 13 games this season with United down in 10th-place in the Premier League table.Contrary to club legend Paul Scholes’ views, former Red Devils midfielder Ince believes that Mourinho must shoulder responsibility for what’s happened.“It looks to me like Jose Mourinho is stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea,” Ince told Paddy Power News.Daniel Fark, Norwich City, Premier LeagueDaniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“Realistically, he wants to play defensively and nick a one nil win, but he knows that the fans and players at United won’t accept that. And they’re right not to.“We’re three seasons into Mourinho’s reign now. There are no more excuses. You’ve spent a lot of money, if I was managing a team and they’d given me three years, and it was clear we weren’t up to standard, I’d expect to lose my job.”Ince made 167 appearances for United between 1989 to 1995 and won two Premier League crowns along with the European Cup in his time at Old Trafford.The 51-year-old also had spells with the likes of Inter Milan and Liverpool before retiring in 2007.United will next face Everton in the Premier League on Sunday with ties against Bournemouth, Juventus and Manchester City awaiting them afterwards.last_img read more
