Metro of the Month: Atlanta

first_imgThe Atlanta region has quickly built a reputation as a hub for the tech sector, and that industry is among the leaders for economic growth at the moment, along with biosciences and advanced manufacturing.Some recent wins for the city include an expansion by health care services company Kaiser Permanente, which is building a new IT center in Atlanta that will create 900 jobs by 2019, as well as Mercedes-Benz USA’s decision to relocate its headquarters to suburban Atlanta. Mercedes will use temporary offices while a new facility is built in Sandy Springs that will house 950 jobs by early 2018.The recent economic growth has also heightened the need for skilled workers in the Atlanta area. A regional collaborative, Metro Atlanta eXchange for Workforce Solutions (MAX), is trying to address that demand. In a recent poll of workforce development agencies conducted by MAX, 38 percent of respondents cited “lack of skills” as the most critical challenge facing job seekers in metro Atlanta.The third-largest concentration of Fortune 500 headquarters is in the Atlanta metro area, a 28-county region in northwestern Georgia. Among the high-profile businesses based locally are The Home Depot, UPS and Coca-Cola.To learn more about Atlanta and other metro economies, please go to:SHRM Metro Economic Outlookslast_img read more

Feds: Coast Guard lieutenant compiled hit list of lawmakers

first_img(AP) – Prosecutors say a Coast Guard lieutenant is a “domestic terrorist” who wrote about biological attacks and had a hit list that included prominent Democrats and media figures.Christopher Paul Hasson is due in court on Thursday in Maryland. He was arrested on gun and drug charges last week.Prosecutors say Hasson espoused extremist views for years. Court papers detail a June 2017 draft email in which Hasson described an “interesting idea” that included “biological attacks followed by attack on food supply.”Federal agents found 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition when Hasson was arrested. Prosecutors say he also had compiled a list of prominent congressional Democrats, activists, journalists and media commentators.Hasson’s attorney declined to comment on Wednesday. His arrest was first noted by researchers from George Washington University.last_img read more

first_imgWatford captain Deeney praises (sort of) Arsenal: But they’re four years behind eliteby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford captain Troy Deeney has launched a fresh attack on Arsenal.Deeney irked the soft-touch Gunners in 2017 when he accused of them of lacking “cojones”.And, although he has seem dramatic improvements under Unai Emery, he has once again told them they are miles off the Premier League pace.Deeney told 5Live: “Everyone knows me and Arsenal don’t get on too well.“But I think there has a steeliness that has been brought in and there are goals throughout the team.“They have different styles of play now and can play with the two boys up front that are always going to score goals and give you something to build on.“But football works in six-month periods between transfer windows and they are going to have to go again.“Look at how transfer windows they are behind the big boys. They are probably six, seven or eight behind the big boys. That is just being realistic.“I know people are saying it is a massive improvement but that’s only on what they had last year.“But they are still behind the likes of Man City and United, not just in spending but in the quality they have brought in.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

NYAY funds will come from pockets of chor businessmen Rahul

first_imgBokakhat (Assam): Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that funds for the ambitious ‘NYAY’ scheme will come from pockets of “chor” businessmen favoured by ‘Chowkidar’ Narendra Modi. Addressing a rally in the Upper Assam town of Bokakhat, Gandhi said the Congress, if voted to power, guarantees to deposit Rs 72,000 annually to 20 per cent poor Indian families under the NYAY scheme. “Modi had promised to deposit money in the accounts of people, but he has done it only in the case of some rich businessmen like the Ambanis. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “The money (for NYAY scheme) will come from the pockets of ‘chor’ (thieves) like Anil Ambani, to whom Chowkidar Narendra Modi has given money during the last four years… We will deposit it in the accounts of the poor, particularly women, irrespective of their caste, class or religion,” he said. The party has promised to roll out the Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY) scheme, under which Rs 72,000 would be deposited in bank accounts of the women belonging to poor families, annually.

Review of Moroccan editorials October 22

first_imgRabat – The daily newspapers published on Monday devoted their comments to the visit of the Personal Envoy of the UN Secretary General for the Sahara, Christopher Ross, to the southern provinces, the presentation of the Finance Bill 2014 and the management of Casablanca city.Al Mounaataf wondered if Mr. Ross will be able to draw the logical conclusions of his marathon tours between the parties to the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara or he will hand over the folder to another Personal Envoy of the Secretary General of the UN.With regard to the draft finance bill 2014, Aujourd’hui le Maroc writes that the government has dedicated to payroll a staggering 103 billion dirhams, or about half of the general budget of the State. At this pace, “the budget will go fully, in a few years, to salaries.” For its part Akhbar Al Yaoum al Maghribia says that “the government drafted, for the third consecutive time, the finance bill without preceding it with an organic law which remedies the shortcomings of the old law and improves the control of expenditure of public funds.”Commenting on the management of Casablanca, L’Economiste notes that the “governance of Casablanca finally seems to regain some intelligence (…) although people regret that it took to start the royal indictment of the mismanagement of the city.”Under the title “the city and the billion budget,” Al-Ahadath Al-Maghribia writes that criticizing the situation and contrasting trends in Casablanca, HM King Mohammed VI has raised an overriding question, namely that ‘despite the enormity of the budget of this city, which is three times higher than the budgets of other cities, Casablanca does not even have a complete sanitary sewer system.last_img read more

Ohio State womens soccer splits weekend matchups

Then-freshman forward Lindsay Agnew (18) dribbles the ball during a game against Eastern Michigan on Aug. 25, 2013, at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 2-1, in overtime.Credit: Lantern file photoTiming was everything for the Ohio State women’s soccer team this weekend. After late-game heroics guided the Buckeyes past Indiana on Friday night, two goals in the final 10 minutes denied them a point against Purdue on Sunday.OSU (4-4-0, 1-1-0) finished its first weekend of conference play with a 2-1 overtime win against Indiana (4-4-0, 0-2-0) and a 3-1 loss to Purdue (5-2-1, 1-1-0).The Buckeyes entered Sunday on a three-game winning streak but couldn’t capitalize on their momentum against the Boilermakers.Tied 1-1 at halftime, neither team could find the back of the net for the early part of the second half. Purdue sophomore forward Maddy Williams eventually broke the stalemate in the 81st minute with her second goal of the afternoon. Williams led a Boilermakers offense that outshot OSU 15 to 13 and six to four in shots on target.Both teams worked to use the width of the field in the first half. The strategy worked first for Purdue in the 33rd minute when Williams received a pass from the right flank and put it behind OSU redshirt-freshman goalkeeper Megan Geldernick.The Boilermakers nearly stretched their lead on a corner kick moments later, but sophomore defender Nicole Miyashiro made a save on the goal line to keep the Buckeyes within one.OSU leveled the score in the 41st minute when sophomore forward Lindsay Agnew’s shot from beyond the penalty box surprised Purdue freshman goalkeeper Erika Yohn and snuck inside the near post.Agnew’s tally was her first of the season and proved to be the Buckeyes lone goal of the afternoon.Defensively, OSU benefited from the return of junior defender Marisa Wolf who rejoined the Buckeyes back line against Indiana after missing the previous three games with a concussion. Wolf logged 158 minutes in her first weekend back.OSU made a splash in its Big Ten opener, beating the Hoosiers 2-1 in overtime. The Buckeyes trailed 1-0 until the final minute of play when OSU senior forward Kayla Varner converted a penalty kick with three seconds left in regulation.Junior midfielder Michela Paradiso notched the golden-goal in the 97th minute. Varner, fresh off her first goal of the season, provided the game-winning assist to cap her first multi-point game of the year.With the win against the Hoosiers, OSU coach Lori Walker recorded her 200th victory with the Buckeyes.The game marked the Buckeyes’ second overtime contest as it fell 1-0 to Toledo on Sept. 2nd.Walker said she was pleased with parts of her team’s play on Friday but said OSU needed to find more balance between possessing the ball and stretching the opposing defense.For the majority of the evening Indiana played a patient game, looking to capitalize on the Buckeyes’ mistakes, Walker said. The Hoosier’s lone tally came in the 38th minute off a corner kick.Geldernick made four saves against Indiana and added three more against Purdue.OSU is scheduled to close its three-game road swing against No. 8 Penn State (6-1-0, 2-0-0) on Friday. read more
