Numerology Class

A bunch of new numbers came out today so lets get to it ...
#####
February Unemployment Rate
8.9%
Wow! its a lot lower than they figured - they had thought that there would be a surge of people entering back into the job market with the new jobs created ... but the unemployed are still skiddish, I guess.
Lowest since Apr2009
#####
New Jobs Created in Feb
192,000
Not a lot of jobs, but its still a growth.
#####
222,000 private sector jobs also created
30,000 goverment jobs lost
(funny I thought we wanted to cut government, so wouldn't this be a good number?)
#####
Underemployed
15.9%
24,400,000
(now they gave this a down arrow which should be good, but they colored it red which means its a bad number)
#####
8.3Million
Part-Time workers
#####
2.7Million
"Marginally Attached"

#####
7 days
amount of time allowed by FL judge for WH to appeal
ruling on Health Care Law
I'm not sure the judge can do this ... granted the ruling came down 1 month ago, but I'm not sure the judge can dictate the appeal time.
#####
17,000 Acres
Are on fire in FL
1 acre = 4840 sq. yards = approx 22ydX220yd (1chain X 1 furlong = 4rods X 40rods) = the amount of land oxen could plow in one day
