WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- A number of metrics indicate the U.S. economy
is slowly but surely digging itself out of the dark abyss created by the worst
recession in decades, but the jobless rate remains high Nike Air Max 97

The Fed's so-called "beige book" -- an anecdotal collection of economic
information from across the nation -- expressed what some analysts billed as
cautious optimism, and the Fed noted that early frigid temperatures bode well
for apparel sales in some districts.
Small businesses, which employ most U.S. workers and have suffered for the
last several years as the economy floundered, are expressing the highest levels
of optimism since the world's largest economy took a nosedive in 2008, according
to a Gallup poll released Thursday.
The survey found that 26 percent of small-business owners say the number of
jobs at their companies will increase in the next 12 months Nike Air
VaporMax Roze Nederland , while 8 percent say the number of jobs
will go down. The low point in hiring plans occurred in 2008 when 18 percent
said their workforce would decrease and only 14 percent anticipated an increase.
The U.S. recovery is also occurring at a swifter clip than the Eurozone and
"It seems clear that the economy is moving in the right direction with income
and employment growth above the trend of the last few years. However, there is a
long way to go to recover from the losses of the last eight years," Brookings
Institution senior fellow Barry Bosworth told Xinhua.
"Also, productivity growth has been extremely weak and that is the
fundamental characteristic limiting real wage gains," he added. "In an
international context Nike Air
VaporMax Wit Nederland , the dollar has been rising in value,
making American products increasingly expensive in global markets."
Indeed, there are millions of jobless and the unemployment rate remains high,
even after several years. On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics' monthly
jobs report saw November's jobless report holding steady from the previous month
at 5.8 percent Nike Air
VaporMax Grijs Nederland , the latest in a tired trend of high
unemployment that has become routine in recent years, after the economy tanked
six years ago. The good news was that last month saw the highest level of job
creation since 1999, with 321,000 jobs added.
"Despite this surge in job creation, there's still substantial slack in the
economy Nike Air
VaporMax Rood Nederland , as evidenced by still sluggish wage
growth -- a consistent theme of the recovery and indeed of the past
thee-and-a-half decades," according to an Economic Policy Institute report
"Private sector nominal average hourly earnings grew 2.1 percent annually in
November -- similar to what we've seen this year so far -- which shows that the
labor market is still far from healthy, and that Americans are not reaping the
full benefits of the growing economy," the report noted.
NAIROBI， Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Kenyans on Wednesday afternoon flocked joint
eating and social places around the country to cheer the 3，000m steeplechase
men's event at the ongoing Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Perhaps buoyed by the fact that Kenya has won an Olympic gold medal in every
subsequent games since the country first fielded a runner in 1968 which was won
by Amos Biwott， Kenyans left nothing to chance to watch a race they have since
considered to be theirs.
On a bad Olympic year， Kenya has in the past relied on the 3，000m
steeplechase to salvage its image， like during the 1984 Los Angeles Games when
the East African nation won only one gold medal through Julius Korir.
Nairobi residents who had already signed off work for the day sipped tea in
cafes to the eight-minute event.
The cheering hit a crescendo when Conseslus Kipruto breasted the tape in a
time of 8:03.29 to break the Olympic record 8:05.51 which was set by Julius
Kariuki in 1988 during the Seoul Games.
In Eldoret， the hometown of most of the athletes taking part in the
quadrennial event， the county government erected giant screens where the
residents watched the action from.
Residents filled the streets to watch the race and for about 10 minutes， the
town came to a standstill as the people watched the action live.
In newsrooms， journalists took a break .
