looking up

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – New claims for unemployment benefits plunged by 16,000 last week to 453,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday, a steeper fall than had been anticipated in a sign that labor markets may be strengthening modestly.

Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast that claims would come in at 460,000. The government revised the prior week’s figure up to 469,000 claims.

The four-week moving average of claims, considered a better measure of underlying labor market trends, fell 6,250 to 458,000, its lowest level since July 24.

(It’s funny, this news hasn’t appeared yet on politico.com – when new jobless claims last rose it was their headline story…instantly. Update: ah, they finally mentioned the news, four hours after it appeared on the Time site. But it’s not the headline, it’s just linked in their sidebar. They must think it’s bad news 😉

105

President Barack Obama hugs 105-year old Virginia Shelton as he arrives a town hall style meeting in Richmond, Va

Virginia Shelton, 105, of Ashland, a retired nurse, was surprised to learn that she would not be going to a senior center today. Instead, she is among the guests attending the president’s appearance at a South Richmond recreation association.

Shelton turned 105 on Sept. 8. She said that on her birthday she received a “wonderful” letter from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Shelton, who wore a silk corsage and a teaberry-colored jacket over a black skirt, believes the mayor of Ashland arranged for her invitation to Obama’s event today.

Asked what advice she might have for Obama, Shelton said: “As long as he tells the truth, keeps looking up and keeps Christ in his life,” he will be fine. “Take the JC pill and you’ll get to 105,” she said.
