Clarksville, TN – We all know only two quarterbacks in Super Bowl history have won four of them and New England Patriot’s Tom Brady would join Pittsburgh Steelers’ Terry Bradshaw and San Francisco 49ers’ Joe Montana in that exclusive club if they win Super Bowl XLVI over the New York Giants. (It can’t be forgotten that defensive end Charles Haley is the only man to win five Super Bowls.)
But if the Patriots lose, Brady falls to 3-2 in Super Bowl games and join another not so wanting group of quarterbacks to lose at least two Super Bowls — Roger Staubach, John Elway and Fran Tarkenton, who both lost three, and the only man to lose four Super Bowls, Jim Kelly. «Read the rest of this article»

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
The economic data were mixed, but remained consistent with moderate growth in the near term. Consumer confidence fell in January. Motor vehicle sales picked up. Home prices were still falling in November. Construction spending improved in December (likely reflecting mild weather). The January Employment Report was stronger than expected, helped by mild weather. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 243,000 and the two previous months were revised a net 60,000 higher (note that payrolls fell by 2.689 million in January before seasonal adjustment).
The unemployment rate fell to 8.3%, from 8.5% in December and 9.1% a year ago, due largely to a drop in labor force participation. The employment/population ratio held steady at 58.5%, little changed over the last two years. The Household Survey results noted that 206,000 people were not able to work during the January survey period due to adverse weather, vs. a 425,000 average over the last five Januarys (this figure is not directly comparable to the payroll numbers, but it gives you an idea of the magnitude of the weather impact). «Read the rest of this article»
