Local Unemployment rate in Putnam and Dutchess drops. https://news.hamlethub.com/somers/life/1920-local-unemployment-rate-in-putnam-and-dutchess-drops1920-local-unemployment-rate-in-putnam-and-dutchess-drops https://news.hamlethub.com/somers/life/1920-local-unemployment-rate-in-putnam-and-dutchess-drops1920-local-unemployment-rate-in-putnam-and-dutchess-drops

According to preliminary data released by the NY State Department of Labor the Putnam/Dutchess area showed a drop to 3.6%, 

In March 2019, the number of private sector jobs in New York State grew by 18,100, or 0.2%, to 8,274,100, an all-time high according to preliminary figures released by the New York State Department of Labor April 18.

 Albany, NY (April 23, 2019) - The New York State Department of Labor today released preliminary local area unemployment rates for March 2019. Rates are calculated using methods prescribed by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The State’s area unemployment rates rely in part on the results of the Current Population Survey, which contacts approximately 3,100 households in New York State each month.

From March 2018 to March 2019, the State’s private sector employment count increased by 99,100. In March 2019, the number of private sector jobs in the State was 8,274,100. The State’s private sector job count is based on a payroll survey of 18,000 New York employers, which is conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, the State’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate increased from 3.9% to 4.0% in March 2019.

Unemployment Rate Highlights in March 2019 (not seasonally adjusted):

 

  • The counties in New York State with the lowest unemployment rates in March 2019 include:
  • Nassau County (3.3%)
  • Tompkins County (3.4%)
  • Dutchess County (3.5%)
  • Rockland County (3.5%)
  • Saratoga County (3.5%)
  • Albany County (3.6%)
  • Columbia County (3.6%)
  • Putnam County (3.6%)
  • Westchester County (3.6%)

See County Unemployment Rates (opens in new window) for current unemployment rates for all 62 counties in New York State.

Labor force data for the current month are preliminary and subject to revision as more information becomes available the following month. Revised estimates for prior months are available at: labor.ny.gov/stats/LSLAUS.shtm

Labor force statistics, including the unemployment rate, for New York and every other state are based on statistical regression models specified by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are the most up-to-date estimates of persons employed and unemployed by place of residence. Estimates are available for New York State, labor market regions, metropolitan areas, counties and municipalities with population of at least 25,000.

25 Fascinating Facts about Libraries https://news.hamlethub.com/somers/life/1922-25-fascinating-facts-about-libraries1922-25-fascinating-facts-about-libraries https://news.hamlethub.com/somers/life/1922-25-fascinating-facts-about-libraries1922-25-fascinating-facts-about-libraries

There may be no greater repository of analog information than the library, a glorious assembly of printed pages that can take us on adventures, educate us, and fill our days and nights with details of worlds beyond our own—all free of charge. Today, there are roughly 116,867 public and academic libraries across the country. 

 

The week of April 11th was National Library Week so here are 25 fascinating facts about these irreplaceable institutions.

 

  1. One of the oldest public libraries in the country opened in 1790 in Franklin, Massachusetts, where residents circulated books donated by Benjamin Franklin. The Founding Father once started his own lending library in 1731 in Philadelphia called the Library Company, but it required a subscription fee of 40 shillings.
  2. Philanthropist Andrew Carnegie was a one-man library-funding machine. The wealthy industrialist donated $55 million—or $1.6 billion in today’s dollars—between 1886 and 1919 to open an astonishing 2509 libraries worldwide, including 1679 in the United States.
  3. Carnegie funded several New York City libraries, and those buildings were often constructed with apartments on the top floor. The idea was that the library’s custodians would have living quarters so that they could keep shoveling coal into furnaces at all hours of the day and night.
  4. Librarians used to have to adopt a particular style of handwriting known as “librarian hand.” The practice was prevalent in the late 1800s, when library pioneer Melvil Dewey—of the Dewey Decimal System fame—and other curators of early collections believed that legible handwriting was a must for card catalogs. The practice faded as typewriters grew in popularity.
  5. The world’s biggest library in terms of catalog depth is the Library of Congress (LOC), which has 168 million items. That record is a rebound from a calamity in 1814, when the then-14-year-old collection of 3000 volumes was destroyed after British troops burned the Capitol building.
  6. The LOC is so devoted to making knowledge available to everyone that it pays to reproduce popular magazines in Braille. In 1985, an irate senator from Ohio named Chalmers Wylie lobbied to get them to stop publishing a Braille version of Playboy. It was reinstated after protests and continues to be published to this day.
  7. You don’t necessarily need to head to the Library of Congress to feel overwhelmed by the written word. The McAllen Public Library in McAllen, Texas, is housed in a converted Walmart location and might be the largest single-story library location in the country. The 123,000-square foot space has a computer lab, a cafe, and an 180-seat auditorium.
  8. The Haskell Free Library and Opera House sits directly on the borderbetween the United States and Canada. You can walk in from Stanstead, Quebec, and walk out into Derby Line, Vermont. You don’t need a passport to cross the (literal) line running through the building, but you do have to return to your country of origin or risk fines.
  9. The Joanina Library at the University of Coimbra in Portugal has a number of bats in residency, but no one is calling for an exterminator as the bats prey on insects that could damage book pages. Staff drape tables with coverings overnight and clean up the guano in the morning.
  10. Among the more popular genres in prison libraries: paranormal romance, young adult titles, and the Left Behind series.
  11. Not all libraries expect publishers to do the heavy lifting. The Bethlehem Area Public Library in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has a publishing arm that released two books in 2018: Home At My Typewriter: Selected Poems by Bob Cohen and A Journey by Matt Wolf. Library staff helped to design and edit the titles.
  12. If you’re wondering how dirty library books can become after passing through many hands, the answer is: pretty dirty. Everything from traces of cocaine to the herpes virus to bed bugs have been found on sampled pages, but don’t worry: There’s never been a documented case of anyone catching anything from a library book.
  13. The only danger of a dirty book is to the book itself, as dust can trap moisture that can damage pages. That’s why the Boston Public Library has a machine dubbed the Depulvera that acts like a miniature car wash for books, using a conveyor system to blast dirt from volumes.
  14. Those late fees for unreturned items can add up. Libraries in larger cities can accrue millions in unpaid penalties. In 2016, the San Jose Public Library reported $6.8 million in delinquent fees, with 39 percent of members owing money. Some places will refer debts to collection agencies if a patron exceeds $10 in charges. Other institutions, like Queens Library in New York, will apply credit to fines if patrons come in for “reading time.” Sitting in the library with a book earns credit toward the amount owed.
  15. It’s never too late to return a book. In 2015, a former student at Wakefield High School Library in Wakefield, Virginia, named Eleanor Reed sent back a copy of The Underside of the Leaf. It was borrowed in 1981 and accidentally mixed in with the student’s family collection. In 2016, the granddaughter of a man who had taken out The Microscope and Its Revelations from Hereford Cathedral School in the UK returned the title 120 years after it had been “borrowed.”
  16. Some libraries went to extraordinary lengths to make sure their titles remained on shelves. At Marsh’s Library in Dublin, Ireland, visitors hoping to peruse rare books in the 1800s were locked in cages until they were done reading.
  17. Not all libraries require silence. The Tikkurila Library in Vantaa, Finland, has a karaoke room with thousands of songs for guests to perform. (Finland is home to a lot of karaoke-loving citizens.) Fortunately, all that warbling doesn’t rise to the level of a disruption: The room is soundproof.
  18. The New York Public Library offers up more than just books: Members can borrow accessories like neckties and briefcases for people looking to complete an ensemble for a job interview.
  19. If you’re in the mood to peruse those ties, you’ll pass by Patience and Fortitude, the two lions flanking the main entrance to the New York Public Library. The sculptures went up in 1911 and were originallynamed Leo Astor and Leo Lenox after the library’s co-founders, John Astor and James Lenox. They were later “anointed” as Lady Astor and Lord Lenox before getting their current names in the 1930s.
  20. Patrons of the Alaska Resources Library and Information Services in Anchorage can borrow from their collection of taxidermy items, including animals, bones, and furs. Bear and wolf fur are among the more popular requests because they’re often used in Boy Scout promotional ceremonies; Harry Potter fans opt for snowy owl mounts. Borrowers are asked not to remove specimens from their glass containers.
  21. If you’re in the mood for something a little livelier, the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale University allows patrons to check out General Montgomery, a.k.a. Monty, a border terrier mix and certified therapy dog, for 30 minutes of companionship.
  22. Many libraries offer free music that’s yours to keep. A service called Freegal allows patrons to download songs from a library of over 15 million tracks. Ask your local library if they participate.
  23. In addition to meeting rooms, book sales, and research assistance, many libraries also offer passport application services that might help you avoid lengthy post office lines.
  24. The most-borrowed fiction book of 2018 was Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. For nonfiction, it was Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff.
  25. As of 2017, there were 194,000 librarians, 40,000 library technicians, and 96,000 library assistants working in the United States.

Freshly Inked: "Miracle Creek" by Angie Kim https://news.hamlethub.com/somers/life/1916-freshly-inked-miracle-creek-by-angie-kim1916-freshly-inked-miracle-creek-by-angie-kim https://news.hamlethub.com/somers/life/1916-freshly-inked-miracle-creek-by-angie-kim1916-freshly-inked-miracle-creek-by-angie-kim

Every once in a while, a really special book comes along, a book that is just perfect for you in so many ways. For me, Miracle Creek is one of those books. It is a delectable combination of medical fiction, mystery, courtroom drama, and immigrant story, all tightly woven into a fast-paced and wonderfully readable novel.

The story centers on the Yoo family who have recently immigrated from Korea. In an effort to support themselves and their teenage daughter, Mary, Pak and Young open a business offering hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in a submarine shaped chamber they call “the miracle submarine.” Patients drive long distance to undergo this experimental treatment, hoping it will be the one that finally makes a difference. Elizabeth brings her autistic son, Henry, who has been improving more slowly than she would like. No stranger to alternative treatments, Elizabeth hopes this will be the one that changes Henry into a normal child. Kitt bring her youngest child, TJ, who is severely autistic, constantly banging his head, and only calming when Barney the purple dinosaur is on screen. Teresa comes with Rosa, her teenage daughter who developed cerebral palsy after a viral illness, and Matt, whose Korean wife is family friends with the Yoos, hopes to improve his sperm function to cure their infertility. Within the close confines of the submarine, these strangers develop a forced intimacy over the long hours of the “dives,” a sort of makeshift dysfunctional family. When a horrific tragedy occurs—someone sets fire to the chamber with patients inside, leading to the deaths of Henry and Kitt and serious injuries for Matt, Pak, and Mary—the riveting story is set in motion. I couldn’t stop turning the pages to figure out who set the fire and why.

Kim utilizes an interesting structure to tell the story. The first chapter, entitled, “The Incident,” is told from Young’s first person point of view on the day of the fire and all of the following chapters are in third person close point of view one year later when Elizabeth has been put on trial for arson, rotating among all of the characters who survived the tragedy. Every character has a plausible motive to have committed the crime and a compelling storyline. With so many narrators, I usually find some more interesting than others, but in this case Kim does a commendable job creating story arcs for every character that are all believable and interesting.

Kim’s writing is lyrical, seamless, and articulate. I often found myself stopping to highlight a beautiful turn of phrase or unique description. In this section, Young has boarded an airplane for the first time:

“She looked at the metal-smooth wing, fluttering slightly as it grazed the clouds’ diffuse edges before slicing the cottony blooms in perfect precision, and she had a flickering sense of wrongness, that she didn’t belong in the sky. It felt like hubris. Rejecting your natural-born place in the world and using an alien machine to defy gravity and dislocate yourself to another continent.”

Within the gorgeous prose, Kim also addresses many important topics and themes, including the difficulty of raising a child with special needs, the challenges of immigrating to a country where you don’t speak the language or know the customs, and the problems that arise in an interracial marriage.

In this section, Young is thinking about the explosion and its consequences and about how everything could have turned out differently if only one piece of the puzzle had been missing.

“Every human being was the results of a million different factors mixing together—one of a million sperm arriving at the egg at exactly a certain time; even a millisecond off, and another entirely different person would result. Good things and bad—every friendship and romance formed, every accident, every illness—resulted from the conspiracy of hundreds of little things, in and of themselves inconsequential.”

So many elements of Miracle Creek come from the author’s own experiences. She immigrated to America from Korea as a preteen, she experienced HBOT first hand with her son who suffered from hearing loss and gastrointestinal disorders, and she is a former trial attorney. Kim makes use of all of her life experiences to make every scene believable, realistic, and heart wrenching. For more about Kim’s experiences and her inspiration for writing the novel, check out this wonderful piece she wrote for Vogue magazine.

I finished Miracle Creek on January 18, and yet I know without a doubt it will be on of my favorites novels of the year, and likely of all time.
