The United States’ Disservice To Afghan Translators

states in August: Its private sector gained 5,900 jobs from the previous month, but its public sector lost 1,100 jobs. The state had the second highest unemployment rate in the United States at 9.2 percent, which was unchanged from the previous month, according to Labor Department data released on Friday. “Adding jobs without lowering the unemployment rate underscores the uneven nature of this economy and could continue depending how national and global events shape business plans and consumer confidence,” Jay Rowell, director of the Illinois employment department, said in a statement. In August, the federal government, excluding the postal service, lost 300 jobs, and state governments shed a total of 3,000 jobs from July. Local government gained 21,000 education jobs, the second month in a row that schools boosted hiring, but cities and counties eliminated 500 jobs in other areas, the Labor Department reported earlier this month. Over the year, the entire government sector loss 94,000 jobs. “In general, governments have been slashing jobs and the private sector has been picking up the slack,” said Brent Campbell, who follows U.S. regional trends as an associate economist for Moody’s Analytics. In Wisconsin, where the jobless rate ticked down to 6.7 percent in August from 6.8 percent in July, the private sector added 7,300 jobs, mostly in construction. Local government, meanwhile, lost 1,200 positions, according to the state’s employment department. Maryland, where the federal government is a large employer and contractor, is also seeing strength in the private sector. The state gained 9,700 jobs in August from July, and its unemployment rate dropped to 7 percent from 7.1 percent. “Today’s jobs report also reaffirms the strength of Maryland’s dynamic private sector. Over the past 12 months, our businesses have created 37,800 jobs – nearly nine out of every 10 new jobs created in our state,” Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley said in a statement on Friday.

MONEY LIST You’ll be amazed how much money the world’s biggest clubs make. Check out the top 20 from 2013 . Estimates are the new TV contract will represent an increase of “between 35 and 38 per cent on the previous three-year deal” according to Red Devils executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. But evidently, commercial income is the main force behind a 13.4 per cent rise in overall revenue to 363.2million. And the United States is where the Old Trafford outfit are looking to expand their horizons now. “The US market is under penetrated,” Woodward said. “It is a very big media market, the most developed sports market in the world. “But we don’t want to deals that are quick and wrong, that tie us up and we regret afterwards. “We believe there has been an inflection point from 2010-11 when interest levels in football have increased. “In the last three years the number of people watching Manchester United has gone up by between 30 and 35 per cent each year. NBC reported peak viewership for our game against Chelsea last month was the biggest weekday afternoon audience since the Olympics. “It is moving away from being a niche sport and into the territory of competing with some of the top sports in the country.” United’s massive commercial arm, which will shortly boast an office in New York, in addition to the one that was opened in Hong Kong last year, now represents 42 per cent of total revenue, with sponsorship deals alone amounting to 90.9million, a rise of 44.1 per cent. With a new shirt deal with US car giant Chevrolet due to launch next season and negotiations with Nike over an extension to the lucrative manufacturing contract ongoing, the Glazer family have ridden through the storm that accompanied their massively controversial leveraged buyout in 2005. While debt remains enormous by usual standards – 389.2million – it is way below the levels it once was and the Glazers still have large cash reserves, in excess of 50million following the summer arrivals of Marouane Fellaini and Wilfried Zaha. Still the costs associated with the takeover continue to rise, to around 680million, which those fans who remain implacably opposed to the Glazer ownership believe would have been better invested in either the squad or a further expansion of Old Trafford.

United States Steel Corporation Announces Management Changes In Raw Materials And Procurement Organization

Every person granted a visa poses some risk. A dozen Saudis with visas attacked New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001. Two refugees from Russias Chechen conflict attacked Americans in Boston this spring. Yet last year, the State Department issued visas to more than 20,000 Saudis and 100,000 Russians without repetitive reviews by security committees. Witholding visas for Iraqi and Afghan interpreters does not make sense; our country is discriminating against those who have proven their loyalty and work ethic. The State Departments reputation is hurt by its discrimination. Many of us in the military who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan rarely saw U.S. diplomats out at the district and village level. The task of nation-building was foisted upon the military, which pitched in to aid our diplomats. Our soldiers never leave a comrade behind, but State is leaving the interpreters behind. The result is that generals proffer faint praise for State when testifying before Congress but in the hallways offer searing judgments to staffers.

United States Caught Exaggerating Terrorism Numbers

These inaccuracies are important in part because DOJ management and Congress need accurate terrorism-related statistics to make informed operational and budgetary decisions, said Michael E. Horowitz, the inspector general of the EOUSA. Indeed, these numbers are important, which is all the more reason it shouldnt take an audit to learn the right statistics. Mistakes happen, but inflating the rate of terrorist convictions by more than a quarter seems pretty fishy. Math isnt that hard. It doesnt take a conspiracy theorist to wonder whether the exaggeration is intentional to help fuel the fear of terrorism . The government has used this fear to push some unpopular agendas; making terrorism real might require convincing people that there are more potential terrorists around than is actually the case. That, or perhaps the focus is on embellishing Americas success in the war on terror. While spending countless billions in taxpayer dollars, establishing an elaborate international spy program and foregoing a slew of other civil liberties in the name of national security, American citizens want to know that these sacrifices are necessary and worthwhile. What better way to justify these costs than to exaggerate the number of terrorist convictions the United States is securing? Certainly, it wouldnt be the first time government agencies were caught playing fast and loose with terrorist data. When information on the NSAs surveillance program first leaked, authorities insisted that the information collected disrupted over 50 terrorist plots.
