Shop Small on Saturday, November 24th 2012

November 19, 2012  Karen Mills

In between the Black Friday sales and the Cyber Monday deals is Small Business Saturday (November 24th) – a day set aside to support the small businesses that play a vital role in creating jobs and economic opportunities all across the country.

Small businesses are the back bone of our communities. And when we shop small, we not only get great products and services, but we support our neighbors and strengthen our local economies.

Over the last two decades, small and new businesses have been responsible for creating two out of every three net new jobs in the U.S., and today over half of all working Americans own or work for a small business.

Last year, Small Business Saturday gave a boost to many of these Main Street businesses, with more than 100 million Americans shopping at independently-owned small businesses. And this year we can do even better!

So what can you do to participate?

  • If you are a business owner, register your business at www.shopsmall.com so your customers know where to find you and you can receive free Small Business Saturday promotional materials. You can also make sure you’re prepared for the holiday season by checking out SBA’s advice at www.sba.gov/saturday.
  • If you are a customer, learn which businesses in your community are participating in Small Business Saturday at www.shopsmall.com. The website provides information on businesses currently registered and how you can rally your community to support the initiative.

By shopping small, we can help America’s small businesses do what they do best: grow their businesses, create good jobs, and ensure that our communities are vibrant.

I encourage you to join small business owners and the more than one hundred million people who were part of Small Business Saturday last year.

Shop small this holiday season. I know I will.

      Made in America: A New Trend of Manufacturing Returning to US

      Posted: Nov 20, 2012 12:53 PM PST By Heather Rosenbaum – wset

      Danville, VA – Companies sending their manufacturing jobs overseas is an unfortunate reality that is leaving people without jobs. But American companies are now saying “no thanks” to foreign labor, leading to a new “Made in America” wave.

      As many companies are making the leap back home, they supply Americans with jobs, often well-paid ones. But experts say the way of making the products may look a little different. In fact, even the most simple products are often created by high-tech production and an experienced workforce.

      Going from lumber into chair and every step in between, a southside furniture factory defines manufacturing. But the plant isn’t located in China or India, it is right here in Virginia.

      “They are making an investment here. So when it lasts longer, gets there on time, and it is exactly what they want…it’s much easier for them to see that,” said Greg Terrill, president of Frank Chervan Inc.

      Over the past two decades, many companies moved overseas. American workers were left without jobs. Struggling to make ends meet.

      But ask Director of Economic Development at Virginia Tech John Provo about the trend, and you get a different opinion.

      “Companies make decisions about where they think they can make the most money doing what they do,” said Provo.

      For years, Provo says manufacturers thought the best job potential for their companies were overseas.

      “There were certain calculations about labor, there were certain calculations about transportation costs that looked a certain way at the time. But increasingly, companies are finding that the calculations are a little bit more complicated,” said Provo.

      On Cyber Monday the White House Releases New Report on the Impact of Middle-Class Tax Cuts on Retailers and Consumer Spending

      Report Details Consequences if Congress Fails to Extend Middle-Class Tax Cuts

      WASHINGTON, DC – As we move into the holiday shopping season, the White House released a report from the National Economic Council and the Council of Economic Advisers called The Middle-Class Tax Cuts’ Impact on Consumer Spending and Retailers. This report provides new analysis on the impact to retailers and consumer spending if Congress fails to act to avoid taxes going up on 98 percent of Americans at the end of the year.

      This report is embargoed until 6am ET. The link to the full report can be found HERE.

      The President believes Democrats and Republicans should come together to renew middle-class tax cuts so families and businesses have more certainty at this critical time for our economy. If Congress acts, every American will get a tax break on their first $250,000 of income, and income taxes won’t go up for 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses. The President believes we must take a balanced approach to reduce our deficit, that’s why he has laid out a $4 trillion deficit reduction plan that asks the wealthy to pay a little more and preserves the investments we need to grow the economy. The President has already signed $1.1 trillion in spending cuts and he looks forward to working with Democrats and Republicans on a balanced approach to further reduce our deficit. This is an important moment not just to avoid the fiscal cliff—but to lay the groundwork for an economy that will support a healthy middle class, restore economic certainty, and lead to long-term job growth.

      Apple to produce line of Macs in the US next year
      Apple CEO tells NBC that line of Macs will be produced in the US next year

      12/6/12 By Bree Fowler and Peter Svensson, Associated Press | Associated Press – 1 hr 57 mins ago

      NEW YORK (AP) — Apple CEO Tim Cook says the company will move production of one of its existing lines of Mac computers to the United States next year.

      Industry watchers said the announcement is both a cunning public-relations move and a harbinger of more manufacturing jobs moving back to the U.S. as wages rise in China.

      Cook made the comments in part of an interview taped for NBC’s “Rock Center,” but aired Thursday morning on “Today” and posted on the network’s website.

      In a separate interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, he said that the company will spend $100 million in 2013 to move production of the line to the U.S. from China.

      “This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people and we’ll be investing our money,” Cook told Bloomberg.

      That suggests the company could be helping one of its Taiwanese manufacturing partners, which run factories in China, to set up production lines in the U.S. devoted to Apple products. Research firm IHS iSuppli noted that both Foxconn Technology Group, which assembles iPhones, and Quanta Computer Inc., which does the same for MacBooks, already have small operations in the U.S.

      Made in the USA: Journey behind the label

      6/24/13 By Rick Klein, Olivier Knox, Richard Coolidge, and Jordyn Phelps | Power Players – 2 hrs 22 mins ago

      Top Line

      After a manufacturing plant closed down in his hometown of Ravenswood, W.Va., resulting in 650 people losing their jobs, Josh Miller began to wonder what was really made in America anymore.

      He decided to set out on a 30-day road trip across the United States in search of answers for how to revive American manufacturing – all the while trying to survive on only goods and products stamped with “Made in USA.”

      “I really thought that I could take this opportunity to give the Made in America movement and these folks a voice,” said Miller, who documented his trip in a film, “Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey.”

      Miller told Top Line that the Made in America movement isn’t so much about trying to get people to buy only American-made products that might be more expensive than foreign-made ones, but it’s about finding solutions to lower the prices of American-made products.

      “I think there are a lot of policies that we can push to help allow our businesses here in America to help reduce costs and lower the prices,” Miller said. “We need to put policies in place that allow us to outcompete the world, and that’s what this film was about.”

      While Miller hopes that Congress and the president will act to help American businesses become more competitive, his producer, Ron Newcomb, added that they also want to see less government regulation.

      “They need to also get out of the way, if you will, and let Americans to do what they do best, thrive in a business environment,” Newcomb said, referring to the federal government.

      But perhaps the most effective and immediate solution to create more manufacturing jobs in the United States, Miller and Newcomb said, is for the American consumer to demand it.

      “It’s a business aspect too,” Miller said. “If the consumers create that demand, the businesses will meet that demand. Request it, demand it, and it will come back and jobs will come back.”

      For more of the interview with Miller and Newcomb, and to hear how they say you can live by the principles of the Made in America movement without being a purist, check out this episode of Top Line.

    Dr. Biden Writes Children’s Book on Deployment

    Jan. 18, 2012 By Elaine Sanchez – American Forces Press Service

    WASHINGTON, – Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, has written a children’s book to raise awareness among Americans, particularly children, of military families’ challenges during deployment.

    The illustrated children’s book — titled “Don’t Forget, Nana, God Bless Our Troops” — will be released in June.

    In a telephone interview yesterday, Biden, nicknamed “Nana” by her grandkids, told American Forces Press Service that she decided to write the book after speaking with hundreds of military families across the nation. Many Americans aren’t aware of what military families go through when their loved one is deployed, she noted.

    “What better way than a children’s book to help parents reading to their children … understand, and the children understand, just what it’s like to go through a deployment?” she asked.

    The story, she explained, was inspired by her own family’s experiences with deployment. The Bidens’ son, Beau, a major in the Delaware Army National Guard, deployed to Iraq for a year in 2008. “I really thought if I wrote the book from the heart, then that would be the best kind of book, and the message would get across and it would be a strong message,” she said.

    Biden tells the story from the perspective of their granddaughter, Natalie. She traces Natalie’s journey from coping with her father’s absence to finding support from community members, including teachers and neighbors.

    Biden said she gained insight from Natalie during conversations on her porch last summer. “I told her I wanted to write a book to help other boys and girls understand what’s it’s like — what she went through,” she said. “I also wanted her to know it was important that other children in other classrooms across the country got to know what she went through.”

    For more: http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=66821

    Dr. Jill will donate all net author proceeds to charities that support military families and children, and will forgo an advance for the book. The book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, also will make a donation to charities that support military families, according to a news release.

    Friday: First Lady Michelle Obama To Receive Official White House Christmas Tree

    19-foot Fraser Fir was grown in North Carolina by Grand Champion tree farmers…
    The White House winter holiday season officially kicks off this Friday, Nov. 23, when First Lady Michelle Obama will be presented with the Official White House Christmas Tree, which will be displayed in the Blue Room throughout the holidays. This year’s centerpiece tree is from Peak Farms in Jefferson, Ashe County, North Carolina, the White House announced on Monday. The 19-foot Fraser Fir was grown by the 2012 National Christmas Tree Association Grand Champion winners Rusty and Beau Estes, who will present the tree to Mrs. Obama. (Above: Mrs. Obama receiving last year’s tree, with her daughters and Bo)

    The tree “was selected in early October and harvested this month,” the White House said. The presentation ceremony by the North Portico each year includes the tree being delivered by horse-drawn carriage, complete with a costumed coachman and jingle-bell harnesses for the horses, and a Marine Corps Band playing carols. Mrs. Obama will “approve” the tree as it is delivered.

      White House tree begins its journey

      11/19/12 7 hrs ago by James Howell – Heartland Publications Staff Writer

      The White House Christmas tree finally started its long journey from Peak Farms to the White House’s Blue Room, stopping along the way to be celebrated by the community.

      “This is a very exciting time for the Estes family and Ashe County,” said Jennifer Greene, the executive director of the North Carolina Christmas Tree Association.

      The journey began at Peak Farms at 10 a.m., when the White House Christmas tree was cut down, baled and loaded into the semi-truck that would deliver the tree to the White House.

      N.C. Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler attended the tree cutting at Peak Farms.

      “I would like to thank Rusty and Beau for bringing the bacon back to North Carolina,” said Troxler. “North Carolina hadn’t sent a tree to the White House since 2008, and it was nice to end the drought.”

      Troxler also said “I don’t think Christmas trees from any other state can match the quality of the Christmas trees grown in North Carolina.”

    State Department appeals for calm in Egypt amid presidential power grab

    11/23/12 1:35 PM EST By BYRON TAU – POLITICO44

    The State Department is calling for calm in Egypt after that country’s Islamist President Mohamed Morsi granted himself sweeping powers this week.

    “The decisions and declarations announced on November 22 raise concerns for many Egyptians and for the international community,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement.

    In a Thursday decision, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi issued a decree granted himself non-reviewable authority in a country that has operated on a provision constitution since 2011.

    Democracy activist Mohamed ElBaradei said that Morsi had essentially declared himself “Egypt’s new pharaoh.” The move also prompted clashes between Muslim Brotherhood supporters and pro-democracy and seclarist protesters in Cairo, Alexandria, Giza and other cities. In three cities, the local offices of the Muslim Brotherhood were burned.

    “We call for calm and encourage all parties to work together and call for all Egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues peacefully and through democratic dialogue,” Nuland said.

    Morsi’s move came just days after he was praised by U.S. leaders for helping to negotiate a cease-fire between the Palestinian militant group Hamas and Israeli. Morsi’s foreign minister announced the cease-fire with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at his side.

    The State Department also condemned the move as contrary to the spirit of the 2011 revolution that swept former President Hosni Mubarack out of power after near three decades in power.

    “One of the aspirations of the revolution was to ensure that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. The current constitutional vacuum in Egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances, and respects fundamental freedoms, individual rights, and the rule of law consistent with Egypt’s international commitments,” Nuland said.

    11/24/12 1:54 PM EST By BYRON TAU – POLITICO44

    President Obama made a surprise appearance at an Arlington, Va. bookstore on a nationwide small business shopping day.

    Obama and his daughters Sasha and Malia visited One More Page Books on Saturday, where he purchased about 10 books.

    Obama used his BlackBerry to look up a title, as he spoke with shop owner Eileen McGervey. “Preparation,” Obama said. “That’s how I shop.”

    Obama declined to answer a shouted question from reporters, saying only: “We’re doing Christmas shopping. … Happy Thanksgiving, folks.”

    Small business Saturday is a nationwide day where Americans are urged to shop at local stores. It comes the day after Black Friday, the biggest holiday shopping event of the year.

    A GOP stronghold goes wobbly

    11/23/12 1:09 PM EST By CHARLES MAHTESIAN – POLITICO

    It’s a sign of the GOP times: Republicans in California’s Orange County, once a conservative citadel, are worried about the future of the party.

    From a Los Angeles Times report:

    Orange County was once an instant synonym for Republican power, and the GOP’s dominance looked impregnable. Now, battered by the recent election results and dismayed by the slow, steady decline in party registration, Republicans here are struggling to craft a new strategy.

    The percentage of registered Republicans has eroded — it now stands at 41% — and the party has long since lost control of the political districts that envelop the county seat of Santa Ana, a Latino-dominated city of 330,000, and surrounding communities in the county’s core.

    Orange County is no ordinary county. It holds a storied place in Republican lore, a locale Ronald Reagan once described as where “good Republicans go to die.”

    In the 1960s, when its explosive growth and exuberant conservatism led the East Coast media to regularly parachute correspondents in to explain the suburban behemoth to a curious nation, a local politician joked that he joined the John Birch Society “to get the middle of the road vote in Orange County.”

    In the 1980s, the local GOP had good reason to boast that it was “the most Republican county in the nation” — Reagan carried the county by 429,000 votes in his reelection bid.

    Now, however, the OC continues to slip through the party’s grasp, another once-mighty GOP machine laid low by demography. Mitt Romney won 53 percent here, a far cry from Reagan’s 75 percent in 1984, or even George H.W. Bush’s 68 percent in 1988.”
