(Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP, File) NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Darius Rucker and Kane Brown are sharing a chart record as the first two solo acts who are also minorities to follow each other with No. 1 country songs in the 28-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart.According to Billboard, Brown, who is biracial, had a two-week No. 1 with “Heaven” and Rucker, who is black, followed him with his single, “For The First Time,” on the chart dated June 2. The chart, which digitally measures airplay, began in 1990.“I wanted to be involved in and make country music because I loved it,” said Rucker in a statement. “To be making history, especially with my little brother Kane Brown, is incredible and a great, added bonus.”Rucker got his first country No. 1 “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” in 2008, which was also followed at the top by Kenny Chesney’s song “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven,” with reggae group The Wailers.Meanwhile this is just the latest chart record for newcomer Brown, who is the only artist in Billboard history to top all five country charts simultaneously. He hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums, Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Songs charts.“I’ve always tried to make the music that I liked, and that I knew my fans would like, and have tried to stay true to that, and I am such a big fan of Darius’ musically, that sharing anything with him feels like an honour,” Brown said in a statement.But prior to the current Billboard chart, other minority acts have followed each other with No. 1 country singles. In 1975, Latino singers Johnny Rodriguez and Freddy Fender twice followed each other to the top of Billboard’s previous country singles chart.

US Senate committee approves immigration overhaul

first_imgNo related posts. WASHINGTON, D.C. — A U.S. Senate committee approved a sweeping immigration reform bill Tuesday that would provide a path to citizenship for up to 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, setting the stage for the full Senate to consider the landmark legislation next month.After five days of debate over dozens of amendments, the Judiciary Committee voted 13 to 5 in support of the bill, with three Republicans joining the committee’s 10 Democrats. The legislation emerged with its core provisions largely intact, including new visa programs for high-tech and low-skilled workers and new investments in strengthening border control.“The dysfunction in our current immigration system affects all of us and it is long past time for reform. I hope that our history, our values, and our decency can inspire us finally to take action,” said committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. “We need an immigration system that lives up to American values and helps write the next great chapter in American history by reinvigorating our economy and enriching our communities.”U.S. President Barack Obama, who has made immigration reform his top second-term priority, issued a statement praising the committee for approving a bill that is “largely consistent” with the principles he had outlined.“None of the committee members got everything they wanted, and neither did I,” Obama said, “but in the end, we all owe it to the American people to get the best possible result over the finish line.”The comprehensive bill is now headed to the full Senate, where Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., urged fellow Republicans on Tuesday not to block the bill from a floor vote. The Congressional Budget Office will take two weeks to issue an assessment of the fiscal cost of the bill, so Democratic aides said the floor debate could begin around June 10.The final Judiciary Committee vote represented a victory for the bipartisan group — four Democrats and four Republicans — that negotiated the 850-page comprehensive bill over several months.Four of the bipartisan group members who are on the Judiciary Committee banded together to fight off the most serious challenges to the core provisions of the bill, including a last-minute attempt from Leahy to add protections for same-sex couples.In an emotional debate, Sens. Charles Shumer, D-N.Y., and Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said they wanted to support Leahy’s amendment, but that they would not because Republican members of the bipartisan group, including Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said they would drop support if the provision were added to the legislation.Leahy ultimately withdrew the amendment “with a heavy heart,” amid near silence in the packed Senate hearing room.Rubio, who is not on the Judiciary Committee, issued a statement after the committee approved the bill praising their work but adding that “work still remains to be done.”“Immigration reform will not become law unless we can earn the confidence of the American people that we are solving our immigration problems once and for all,” he said.Schumer, representing the bipartisan group that authored the bill, also negotiated a compromise Tuesday with Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) to relax some restrictions on high-tech companies that seek to hire foreign engineers and computer programmers.The legislation already would raise the annual limit of high-tech visas, known as H-1B, from 65,000 to as many as 180,000, but Hatch had lobbied to eliminate other restrictions on U.S. companies seeking to hire engineers and programmers from abroad.The compromise amendment lifts the requirement that companies first offer tech jobs to Americans for all firms except those that depend on foreigners for more than 15 percent of their workforce and relaxes the formula for determining the annual number of foreign high-tech workers.The high-tech amendments are perhaps the most substantial changes to the immigration bill over five days of hearings on dozens of proposed changes.Hatch warned he could still drop his support in the full Senate if other concerns aren’t met. “I’ve got to get those or we’ll never pass this bill,” he said.AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka called Hatch’s amendments “unambiguous attacks on American workers” and he vowed to press for changes during the full Senate debate.© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img

FirstTime Jobless Claims At PreRecession Levels

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bureau of Labor Statistics Investors Jobs Labor Department Lenders & Servicers Mark Lieberman Payrolls Processing Service Providers Unemployment 2013-08-15 Mark Lieberman First-time claims for unemployment insurance for the week ending August 10 fell to the lowest level since January 2008, the “”Labor Department””:http://www.ows.doleta.gov/press/2013/081513.asp reported Thursday. The department said there were 320,000 new claims for unemployment insurance, a drop of 15,000 from the previous week. Economists expected the number of claims to drop to 330,000 from the 333,000 originally reported for the week ending August 3. The number of filings for that week was revised to 335,000.[IMAGE]The four-week moving average of initial claims fell to 332,000, the lowest level since November 2007–one month before the recession began.The number of persons continuing to collect unemployment insurance for the week ending August –reported on a one week lag–also fell, dropping 54,000 to 2,969,000. The number of continuing claims for the week ending July 27 was revised up to 3,023,000 from the originally reported 3,018,000.The plunge of first-time claims continues a longer-term pattern of decline, which has seen the four-week moving average tumble almost 9 percent from 364,500 a year ago.While a large part of the decline is due to fewer layoffs, some is attributable to favorable seasonal adjustment factors applied by the Department of Labor for predictable and annually recurring events that affect claims. The adjustment factor for the week ending August 10 was 87.7. An adjustment factor below 100 reduces the raw number of claims to the seasonally adjusted number, which is used for reports. The factor will continue to remain low through Labor Day, when it bottoms at 78.1, suggesting further declines in reported claims.Thursday’s report on first-time claims was consistent with a trend with other reports by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) showing a slowdown in layoffs and discharges–events that lead to unemployment insurance claims.This report on initial claims will have no impact on the August Employment Situation report to be released September 6 by BLS. That report will be based on employment data for the week including the 12th calendar day of the month (covered by the claims report to be released next week).The week-over-week decrease in continuing claims, which largely reflects hiring, was the third in the last four weeks. The four-week moving average of continuing claims has fallen a net 35,250 in those four weeks.The Labor Department said the total number of people claiming benefits in all programs for the week ending July 27 was 4,586,860, an increase of 65,906 from the previous week. There were 5,704,310 persons claiming benefits in all programs in the comparable week in 2012. Extended benefits were not available in any state during the week ending July 27.According to BLS, 11,514,000 persons were officially considered unemployed in July, with 4,246,000 “”long-term”” unemployed–that is, out of work for at least 27 weeks. Of those individuals counted as unemployed, 6.93 million were not receiving any form of government unemployment insurance for the week ending July 27, down from 6.99 million one week earlier.The Labor Department said states reported 1,552,910 persons claiming Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) benefits for the week ending July 27, an increase of 36,635 from the prior week. There were 2,373,969 persons claiming EUC in the comparable week in 2012. EUC benefits this year were directly threatened by the federal budget sequester. According to the Labor Department detail, also reported on a one-week lag, the largest increases in initial claims for the week ending August 3 were in California (+3,715), Ohio (+1,270), Texas (+1,151), Pennsylvania (+999), and Puerto Rico (+816), while the largest decreases were in Oregon (-1,638), Illinois (-999), New Jersey (-762), New York (-712), and Connecticut (-632).California reported the increase in first-time claims for the week ending August 3 was attributable to more layoffs in the service sector, while Ohio cited more layoffs in manufacturing. _Hear Mark Lieberman Friday on P.O.T.U.S. radio, Sirius-XM 124, at 6:20 a.m. Eastern. in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing August 15, 2013 404 Views center_img Share First-Time Jobless Claims At Pre-Recession Levelslast_img
