The bank predicted last month that the economy would grow 3.7 percent in 2014. Such strong growth would normally be expected to boost prices but the bank pointed to a number of factors behind the modest inflation data. “Contributing factors are subdued wage inflation, well-anchored inflation expectations, weak global inflation, falls in oil prices and the high New Zealand dollar,” Wheeler said. “Growth in the New Zealand economy has been faster than trend over 2014, reducing unemployment and adding to demands on productive capacity.” Wheeler also repeated his view that the New Zealand dollar is overvalued.
History shows that to win the Super Rugby title teams need a world-class flyhalf and the Blues haven’t had one since Carlos Spencer. Kirwan has again opted for journeymen in the No.10 jersey and veteran former All Blacks scrumhalf Jimmy Cowan as the replacement for more-recent All Blacks Piri Weepu, who is now playing in England. The Crusaders, who were beaten in this season’s final by the New South Wales Waratahs, have made four changes to their squad for 2015. The most notable is the return of center Robbie Fruean who was a regular with the seven-time champions until 2013 but spent 2014 with the Hamilton-based Chiefs. Fruean recently underwent heart surgery for the second time to correct damage caused by rheumatic fever.

For the 146.2 million Americans who are 18 and older without an associates or higher degree, such opportunities offer a pathway to higher pay and job stability that would be difficult to find on their own. Success hinges on identifying openings at local employers and equipping a spectrum of Americans — from the jobless to the underemployed — with needed skills. Such programs might also help hiring catch up with job vacancies, which are near a record high .

He repeated his concern that too many trucks deployed to fires are undermanned.

McConnell countered that preventive measures and education have caused the number of fires in New Orleans to drastically drop, lessening the need for a larger firefighting force. Crews have responded to 244 structure fires this year, down from 337 in 2013 and 746 in 2002, department data show.

”Right now what we can’t get caught doing is letting anybody else define who we are at this point, or what our goals are at this point,” Sparano said. ”We need to concern ourselves with our own goals for right now, and there should only be one and it should be Seattle at this point. We shouldn’t be looking down the road at anything right now. We shouldn’t be looking any place other than with what’s directly in front of us, and that would be this challenge this week.” The Raiders have been competitive in all three games under Sparano, having led late in a loss to San Diego in the first game under the new regime and being within a score at the start of the fourth quarter the past two weeks. But they have failed to come through at the end with the most costly play Sunday coming when Darren McFadden lost a fumble deep in Cleveland territory in the third quarter of a 9-6 game. The Browns turned that miscue into a touchdown and added another late TD after rookie quarterback Derek Carr lost a fumble deep in his own territory.

Carolina should be getting back an important player for the Week 9 tilt. DeAngelo Williams says hes ready to get back on the field, after missing four straight games with a sprained ankle. Without Williams, the Panthers running game struggled mightily, ranking 27th on the season in rushing yards per game. Theyve surpassed the 100-yard mark in the last three contests, but thats largely a result of Cam Newtons ability to use his legs.

Users right now are spending a fair amount of money on devices that are currently pretty limited in function. Consumers are not going to be the ones to shell out much of their own money, Connolly said. They think its kind of neat. Yet investors are pumping money in. By the middle of this year, digital-health startups had collectively garnered $2.3 billion in funding, with $200 million of that going to devices like those covered in the report. One potential solution to bridge the gap between cost and consumer? Make the devices an employer- or insurance-provided benefit.

“I would like to hear more from both major party candidates [for governor] where we are going to be during this transition,” Rothstein said. “A lot has been done in a few years.” Opponents of Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co.’s planned $6 billion natural main line expansion, which would cross 28 Massachusetts communities, have argued that the state and region “are at a tipping point” in terms of a long-term trend toward renewable energy, making a new 129-mile gas line unnecessary. Project supporters and gas company officials deny that assessment, contending more natural gas is needed in New England simply to provide an adequate bridge toward predominant use of renewable energy sources.
