March 15 to May 15 is the open season for the Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2016-17 academic year. Schools may apply for initial participation, modify existing open-ended agreements, take no action and continue to honor the terms of existing open-ended agreements, or withdraw from the Yellow Ribbon Program. Please see the for more information.
Mitigating ozone and BC may benefit climate and health simultaneously (e.g., ; ; ); because methane and BC are short-lived relative to the long-lived greenhouse gases [e.g., carbon dioxide (CO2)], mitigation would reduce the rate of climate change in the near-term (; ). Although a recent series of studies has examined the ancillary health benefits of greenhouse gas mitigation (), the health benefits of mitigating ozone and BC as climate forcers have been studied less extensively. Studies examining the health impacts of all fossil fuel and biofuel emissions (), percentage reductions in ozone precursors () and BC (), and adoption of European vehicle emission standards in the developing world () suggest that controlling methane and BC emissions may substantially benefit global public health, particularly in Asia where large populations are exposed to high PM2.5 and ozone concentrations ().

There is no question that some long-term unemployment is caused by government intervention and unions that interfere with the of labor. It is, however, a great mistake (made by some conservative economists) to attribute most unemployment to government interventions in the economy or to any lack of desire to work on the part of the unemployed. Unemployment was a serious economic problem in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries prior to the welfare state and widespread unionization. Unemployment then, as now, was closely linked to general macroeconomic conditions. The , when unemployment in the United States reached 25 percent, is the classic example of the damage that collapses in credit can do. Since then, most economists have agreed that cyclical fluctuations in unemployment are caused by changes in the for labor, not by changes in workers’ desires to work, and that unemployment in recessions is involuntary.
Another cause of long-term unemployment is unionization. High union wages that exceed the competitive market rate are likely to cause job losses in the unionized sector of the economy. Also, those who lose high-wage union jobs are often reluctant to accept alternative low-wage employment. Between 1970 and 1985, for example, a state with a 20 percent unionization rate, approximately the average for the fifty states and the District of Columbia, experienced an unemployment rate that was 1.2 percentage points higher than that of a hypothetical state that had no unions. To put this in perspective, 1.2 percentage points is about 60 percent of the increase in normal unemployment between 1970 and 1985.

As you may know, the maximum amounts for tuition and fees under the Post-9/11 GI Bill change every academic year. For academic year 2017-2018, the maximum annual reimbursement for those attending a private or foreign school increased from $21,970.46 to $22,805.34. Additionally, the monthly housing allowance for those taking online training exclusively (no classroom instruction) increased to $840.50 per month. These increases are effective August 1, 2017 - July 31, 2018. Remember: while BAH rates for DoD personnel are effective in January, GI Bill beneficiaries will not see the change in MHA until Sept (for terms that started on or after Aug 1).

For ozone, we used long-term RR estimates from the ACS cohort () based on a two-pollutant model that controlled for PM2.5, in which ozone was significantly associated only with death from respiratory causes. For a 10-ppb increase in the seasonal (6-month) average of 1-hr daily maximum ozone, the RR of respiratory disease was 1.04 (95% CI: 1.010, 1.067). The study by was the first major study to find a significant positive relationship between chronic ozone exposure and mortality in a general population; biological plausibility for this result is supported by evidence from toxicology and human exposure studies showing that ozone affects airway inflammation, pulmonary function, and asthma induction and exacerbation (National Resource Council 2008). Global extrapolation of U.S.-based RR estimates for both PM2.5 and ozone is supported by generally consistent short-term PM2.5 and ozone mortality relationships around the world (e.g., ).
With over 64,000 full-time employees making up the State of Colorado’s workforce it is imperative to determine how best to improve employee satisfaction and morale as these directly affect job performance and workplace safety (Barling, Kelloway, & Iverson, 2003; STAR, 2009)....
