Spending rose 0.5%, but gasoline accounted for about 80% of that. The PCE Price Index rose 0.4% (+1.5% y/y), up 0.1% ex-food & energy (+1.6% y/y) – trending below the Fed’s 2% target.

Clarksville, TN – In 1991, The Welding Institute in England discovered a strange new method for joining two metals together without melting the two pieces in a traditional fusion welding process.
The process, known as friction stir welding, softened and deformed the metals and then forged them together as one using a rotating tool. The welding process used heat and force to join the metals, similar in nature to the way blacksmiths forged swords and armor in the Middle Ages.
