Thirty participants on January 15 workshop on web searches

Steve Berry, CEO and founder of Battery Universe in New Meadows, was the principal instructor for the workshop and inspired the audience with his usual enthusiasm and real-world examples. The following is an outline of this workshop on web searches with links to examples or useful resources. Continue reading

The seasonal upswing in unemployment came (too) early this year and the November 2011 level nudged up to 12.6%. The good news is that this is still below the 2011 levels. It is higher than expected, however; although we have to keep in mind that these numbers are preliminary. If the numbers stay as they are, this sudden increase in unemployment is caused by a reduction of almost 200 jobs in the region per November, bringing the job pool from 3760 down to 3570. This level of 3570 more closely matches the pre-Tamarack times. Stay tuned for next month’s data.
