Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 31st, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Next week, the ISM surveys have some market-moving potential and we should receive anecdotal information on the strength of holiday sales, but the focus is expected to be on the employment figures.

Seasonal adjustment is a bit quirky in December and can easily magnify the normal statistical noise in the job market figures (as a reminder, the monthly change in nonfarm payrolls is reported accurate to ±120,000 and the unemployment rate is reported accurate to ±0.2%). Market participants are likely to focus on average hourly earnings, which can be noisy.

Drinking to Death

 

Written by Chris Frazier
U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center

U.S. Army Combat Readiness CenterFort Rucker, AL – The profession of arms is inherently dangerous. Every Soldier knows that when they take the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, they could lose their life.

But not every loss occurs in a desert or mountain range halfway around the world. The risks back home are just as deadly.

Hyponatremia is a condition that occurs when the sodium level in the blood becomes too low. While there are several possible causes of hyponatremia, a contributing factor is drinking too much water, which is most often seen in those participating in high-intensity activities. Humans lose sodium through sweat, and drinking too much water during those activities can dilute the blood’s sodium content.

Nashville Predators Blank Minnesota Wild 3-0

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators rebounded from a disappointing loss to the Minnesota Wild last night with a resounding shutout win at Bridgestone Arena, 3-0. 

With the news that Filip Forsberg had been placed on injured reserve earlier in the day, there was an ominous cloud hanging over Smashville when the puck dropped at 7:00pm.

Team officials had revealed the news about Forsberg earlier in the day, saying only that he had an upper body injury and further evaluation was needed to determine how long he would be out of the line up.

NASA reports new study shows Star’s dimming episodes due to Clouds of Gas and Dust

 

Written by Francis Reddy
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – A team of U.S. astronomers studying the star RZ Piscium has found evidence suggesting its strange, unpredictable dimming episodes may be caused by vast orbiting clouds of gas and dust, the remains of one or more destroyed planets.

“Our observations show there are massive blobs of dust and gas that occasionally block the star’s light and are probably spiraling into it,” said Kristina Punzi, a doctoral student at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in New York and lead author of a paper describing the findings. “Although there could be other explanations, we suggest this material may have been produced by the break-up of massive orbiting bodies near the star.”
