The February jobs report is out and it’s a huge beat. In February, nonfarm payrolls grew by 313,000 and the unemployment rate held steady at 4.1%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Over the last three months, job gains have now averaged 242,000 per month. February’s payrolls gain was the largest since July 2016. February marks the fifth-straight month the unemployment rate has been at 4.1%, which is the lowest level since December 2000. Economists had expected the report to show nonfarm payrolls grew by 205,000 during the second month of the year with the unemployment rate falling to 4%.

This is great news for certain. I was listening to Fox Business, and the problem that is developing is that there are not enough skilled job applicants for some positions. We need to address the disparity in the skills of the workforce. Parents need to realize a trade school is better for some of their kids than traditional college. President Trump would be wise to have Mike Rowe become a national spokesman for this movement. We need to employ our own citizens instead of H1B visa immigrants.

Many Marjory Stoneman Douglas students behind the #NeverAgain movement don´t support a new requirement to carry only clear backpacks. Some see it as an invasion of privacy, and some say it´s not the change that´s needed to ensure school safety. Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure. As of Tuesday morning, the photo was retweeted nearly 2,000 times. He followed up with a comment about tampon prices, also making a point to say women´s health products should be easier to access. Last month, families of the Florida

Underfunded candidates are claiming upsets. Campaigns are grappling with thousands of new voters. And the group meant to be a guiding Democrats through it all is instead at the center of a storm of criticism. Three months into an election year that was supposed to be Democrats’ to lose, the primary season refuses to follow the usual script. And the resulting uncertainty has campaign veterans scratching their heads, desperate to quickly understand what’s changed in a Democratic electorate thrown into tumult by Donald Trump’s presidency — and how candidates can start adjusting now to take advantage with the bulk of

Like many people in Los Angeles, I like detached houses. My family lives in a single-family home that was built in 1923 by a woman from Hollywood. Houses like mine are an important part of L.A.´s built environment, history and housing stock. In a region with a housing shortage and homelessness crisis, all homes are good homes. Somewhere along the way, however, our attachment to single family homes went awry. The year my house was built was the undisputed high point of housing construction in Los Angeles. The city permitted almost 44,000 new housing units in 1923 — the equivalent

One Rhode Island state representative wants to pay cash to people willing to move there, as the state faces the prospect of losing half their congressional delegation after the next Census and reapportionment process. State Rep. Carlos Tobon (D) has introduced legislation that would give families $833.33 per month — up to $10,000 — to move to Rhode Island for a year. Those families would be counted in the 2020 Census as Rhode Island residents.

Washington, DC - Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has died, a court spokesperson confirmed. He was 87. A liberal champion, Reinhardt was appointed to the bench by President Carter in 1980. He authored key liberal court opinions on hot-button topics ranging from abortion and marriage equality to assisted suicide and immigration. At the same time, the opinions made him a target of criticism from conservative corners — and of regular reversal from the Supreme Court. Reinhardt was at a dermatologist´s office on Thursday when he died, the court spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.

Hillary Clinton is striking back at critics telling her to “shut up” following her 2016 loss, saying, “They never said that to any man who was not elected.” “And I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research. They never said that to any man who was not elected. I was kind of struck by that,” Clinton said. Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from Eagleton Institute of Politics’ director Ruth Mandel about the former Democratic presidential nominee’s reaction to those who say she should “get off the

President Trump’s approval ratings are rising, driven by a roaring economy that has dulled the effects of a White House swarmed by controversies. Republicans remain panicked over their prospects in 2018, with angst growing that the GOP will lose its majority in the House. Yet even as those fears grow, Trump’s numbers are getting better. The Associated Press and CNN released new polls this week showing 42 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance, up seven percentage points each from their surveys last month. The number is historically low for a president 14 months into his tenure, but the jump

Ms Mack said the house and smuggling operation were “dismantle[d]” and the group of people included 27 Guatemalan nationals, five Mexican nationals

Jeb Bush took a swipe at President Trump during a talk at Yale University Tuesday, saying he goes home every day to children “who actually love me.” The former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate also joked that he was “still in therapy” from the 2016 election, the Yale Daily News reported. Bush made the comments during a lecture titled “A Conversation with Jeb Bush: Restoring Conservatism in America.” The talk was sponsored by Yale’s The William F. Buckley, Jr., Program. Despite his swipes directed at Trump, Bush reportedly called for politicians to be more polite in their discourse. Bush’s

In the wake of the shooting death of Stephon Clark by Sacramento police, the city´s mayor said Wednesday that "implied racism" is behind police shootings. Clark was shot to death in his grandmother´s yard last week, and officers said they believed he was carrying a gun but it turned out he was only holding a cellphone. "I do not believe our police force is racist in any way," said Mayor Darrell Steinberg on CBSN.

The April 2 issue of the magazine features a close-up photo of Trump with a pig´s snout replacing his nose. "Not Collusion... Not Incompetence... Not Cruelty...

Tens of thousands of public school teachers in Kentucky and Oklahoma plan to attend rallies on Monday at their state capitols in what they hope will be the latest display of muscle by the nation´s educators demanding higher wages and better classroom resources. The double demonstrations come less than a month after West Virginia teachers went on a nine-day strike that ended with the governor there signing legislation giving them a 5 percent pay hike -- their first raise in four years.

Conservatives’ expectations for honest and fair movies coming out of Hollywood are understandably low. For decades now we have been brow-beaten and lectured by clueless celebrities on everything from saving the Spotted Owl to gun control – the latest flavor of the moment.

The new movie ‘Chappaquiddick,’ from Entertainment Studios and Apex Entertainment, is a brutally honest recounting of one of America’s greatest public tragedies: the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in a car owned and driven by Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)

South African anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has died aged 81, her personal assistant says. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was the former wife of South Africa´s first black president, Nelson Mandela. The couple - famously pictured hand-in-hand as Mr Mandela walked free from prison after 27 years - were a symbol of the anti-apartheid struggle for nearly three decades. However, in later years her reputation became tainted legally and politically. Family spokesman Victor Dlamini said Mrs Mandela "succumbed peacefully in the early hours of Monday afternoon surrounded by her family and loved ones"

Viral videos posted on social media show teenagers snorting condoms as part of a so-called "condom snorting challenge." In the videos, teens put an unwrapped condom up one of their nostrils and inhale until the condom comes out of their mouth. Like other viral challenges, the condom snorting challenge has been around for years but recently reemerged on social media. In San Antonio, Stephen Enriquez, who teaches drug and alcohol prevention to parents, has also started to teach parents about dangerous online trends like the condom snorting challenge, KABB-TV reported.

With the U.S. Census Bureau reporting yet another year of population loss for the city, it doesn’t take an investigator to determine the causes. The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.

The workshop, titled “Christian Privilege: But Our Founding Fathers Were All Christian, Right?!” will be hosted by Timothy Kane, the “proudly gay” interim associate director for inclusion initiatives at George Washington University.

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, fired back at Trump after the president´s Twitter tirade urging Congress to invoke the “nuclear option” -- requiring only a simple majority to pass legislation -- in order to pass bills for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and tough immigration reform.
