A Soldier’s promise fulfilled

 

Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan – With tears forming in her eyes and voice shaking, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Nicole Olcott stood before a crowd of homeless Afghan children August 14th, prepared to fulfill a seven-month endeavor.

Before deploying to Afghanistan, Olcott, from Daytona Beach, FL, a flight mission planner with Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 3rd Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, Task Force Lighthorse, made a commitment to her children.

“I made my children a promise,” said Olcott. “I made it before I went to Iraq as well, that I would do something for the children in that country. I didn’t know how but I was determined to do it.”

Lady Govs fall to host Mississippi State to end first day at Maroon Classic

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsAustin Peay State University’s volleyball team twice came within sight of set victories but could not find points at critical times and lost in three sets (19-25, 22-25, 23-25) to host Mississippi State, Friday, in the nightcap of the MSU Maroon Classic.

Mississippi State (2-0) jumped out quickly in the match’s opening set, rolling to a 6-1 lead and forcing Austin Peay to take its first timeout. The stoppage only momentarily stemmed the tide as Lady Govs sophomore outside hitter Nikki Doyle scored a kill to end the rally. But the Bulldogs scored six of the next seven points to take a 12-3 advantage and force the Lady Govs to take their second timeout. Austin Peay would only get as close as five points, 23-18, the rest of the way as Mississippi State posted a 25-19 victory.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

The July figures on new and existing home sales each fell well short of expectations, and durable goods orders came in much weaker than anticipated. Real gross domestic product (GDP) rose at a 1.6% annual rate in the second estimate for second quarter of 2010 (compared to +2.4% in the advance estimate and a median forecast of +1.4%).

Growth in the second quarter was stronger than it appears, however. Imports, which have a negative sign in the GDP calculation, surged at a 32.4% annual rate, subtracting 4.5 percentage points from overall growth. Domestic Final Sales (GDP less inventories and net exports) – a better measure of underlying domestic demand – rose at a 4.3% annual rate (vs. +4.1% in the advance estimate). That indicates relative strength. But so what? The GDP revisions tell us nothing about the current pace of growth or where we’ll be in the next few quarters – and that is what matters for the overall financial market outlook.

In his highly-anticipated Jackson Hole, Wyoming, speech, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke gave mixed messages. The Fed is prepared to undertake more quantitative easing – buying long-term securities – but does not yet see that the benefits of such a move would outweigh the potential costs. “If deflation risks were to increase,” Bernanke said, “the benefit-cost tradeoffs of some of our policy tools could become significantly more favorable.” So, the Fed is armed and ready to fire (in terms of doing more), but the trigger point has not yet been reached. The economic data over the next few weeks will be important. «Read the rest of this article»
