Us unemployment rate falls to 7.3 percent

uS unemployment rate falls to 7.3 percent

But at the same time, the number of americans still looking for work has fallen to its lowest level since 1978. Experts interpret this as increasing discouragement in large parts of the people. Reason is also the hard-naked long-term unemployment.

The bottom line is that 169,000 new non-agricultural jobs were created in august. This is 65,000 more than in the previous month, but significantly less than the average for the past twelve months. In addition, the previously reported job growth in july and june was corrected downward. Experts had expected better numbers. Rule of thumb is that 200,000 jobs per month must be created in the USA to keep pace with population growth.

The still ailing labor market could also mean that the U.S. Federal reserve will stick to its ultra-loose monetary policy for longer than previously expected. Fed chief ben bernanke had previously emphasized in public statements that the timing of a slow exit from quantitative easing would depend above all on developments in the labor market.


A child’s trousers makes furore

A child's trousers makes furore

Treasures are precious, treasures must be protected, treasures are hidden in some chambers, this is the rule. Must be? No, that’s what the ministry of home affairs and the ministry of art of the free state of bavaria thought, and they got together with the state agency for non-governmental museums. In the local museums there are many "jewels", objects, which not only by their appearance suggest a treasure, but rather can tell an extraordinary story. With the help of a competition, since spring, the search has been on for 100 local treasures in private, company, club and municipal museums. Among other places, they were found in reckendorf, where the "house of culture – former synagogue" was built shows a historically interesting judic children’s trousers.
The exhibition "culture and cult" in the house of culture is probably one of the youngest museums selected by the minsteries. Opened in april 2014, it shows a small selection of the material found in the so-called "genizah": for centuries, the jewish community, which was dissolved in 1910, deposited all the objects that were sacred to them in the attic. Special treasures were sent to bamberg and burned there on the night of the pogroms in november 1938.

Contacts with furth

In addition to the three cubic meters salvaged from the monument by a group of students before restoration work began in march 2003, there were also over 60 moving boxes in a depot of the judisches museum in furth, which the schlossbrauerei reckendorf had already handed over there for further evaluation in the early 1990s. The oldest stucco in the permanent exhibition there comes from this find among others.
After the renovation of the former synagogue in reckendorf in 2005, the then incumbent mayor klaus etterer and the municipal council began to think about the future of "their geniza" to make. With the help of the district’s local authority, experts from the state office for the preservation of historical monuments, the state office for non-governmental museums in bavaria and a research center for jewish cultural property in veitshochheim, a selection was made of the most interesting fragments with the most valuable content. After restoration, these were presented in the former women’s gallery with the support of curator adelheid waschka.
As it has now become clear, all the effort, including the financial effort – the community was only able to cover the costs with generous subsidies – was worthwhile: a pair of "jewish children’s trousers became as a "heimatschatz" selected.
Interesting is the story behind the object. Among many textile remnants from which tefelin bags were made, a pair of children’s trousers was found that, according to their design and fabric, dated back to the 19th century. Century dates. It is easy to imagine that a child at the age of two years, dressed in these pants, had entered the synagogue for the first time to offer his circumcision pennants (mappa) to the torah scroll. Among the reckendorf jews, many children completed an apprenticeship as art weavers from 1814, when the grand duchy of wurzburg became part of the bavarian kingdom. It may be assumed that the fabric for this garment was also made here locally.

Simple, frugal, modest

The art weaver families from reckendorf included koppel haas and his sons kalman, abraham and wolf (william). Her home at 10/12 muhlweg is featured in a photo in the san francisco city museum, as wolf and bertha haas bequeathed their home to the city as a museum (haas-lilienthal house).
The niece of levi strauss, who had no children of her own, also married into the haas family, who were certainly able to support the levi strauss company with their know-how from home. The descendants of the "reckendorfers visit their former home on their cavalier tour to europe. They are always moved by the simplicity, frugality and modesty in which their ancestors once lived as francophone country jews.
The award for the "reckendorfer heimatschatzla" by art minister marion kiechle (CSU) and home minister albert furacker (CSU) in munich were attended by curator adelheid waschka, first burgermeister manfred deinlein (SPD) and altburgermeister klaus etterer from reckendorf.

Floristry becomes a luxury goods
Consumption festival or not, christine schatz still has 400 red roses ready for the day of love. "Mostly a single red rose is bought", the owner of the store "blumen am stadtpark" is a woman in forchheim. For this one rose hour in the afternoon of valentine's day already a queue manner in the store.
But in the past there were more mannerists. According to christine schatz, there is no need to be afraid that there will be no more red roses in the stores on valentine's day. As with all other events, floristry had become a luxury good.
Treasure hold on to the fact that flowers express best the attention of the friend or husband.
