United States Department of DefenseWashington, D.C. –  The Defense Department is conducting pilot classes of a new program designed to better prepare service members transitioning out of the military to civilian life.

Transition Goals Plans Success, known simply as Transition GPS, replaces the 20-year-old Transition Assistance Program, or TAP. In a sweeping overhaul of the 20-year-old TAP, as part of the VOW to Hire Heroes Act passed in 2011, Transition GPS takes military members through a week-long class, compared to the original TAP’s mandatory two to four hours of separation counseling, said Susan Kelly, the Defense Department’s deputy director for the newly formed Transition to Veterans Program Office.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of August 19th, 2012

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

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

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesThe economic data were mixed, but generally stronger than expected. Retail sales popped 0.8% (overall and ex-autos) in July, following weak reports in April, May, and June. The CPI was flat overall in July and up only mildly ex-food & energy. However, higher prices of food and energy are expected to show through more in the report for August. Industrial production advanced, fueled by strength in autos (seasonal adjustment issues?) and hot weather (higher output of utilities).

New Report Highlights Impacts of Teacher Layoffs, Need to Invest in Education

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – The White House today released a new report that finds that the loss of teachers and other education staff is forcing communities into difficult choices that harm our children’s education and future, including increasing class sizes and shortening school years and days.

The report shows that more than 300,000 local education jobs have been lost since the end of the recession – a figure that stands in stark contrast to previous economic recoveries. As a result, the national student-teacher ratio increased by 4.6 percent from 2008 to 2010, rolling back all the gains made since 2000.
