    With 240 attending the Chicago Chapter meeting and dinner, it was the single largest chapter event in many years. The credit for this great networking event is shared with the Chicago chapter members, the great sponsors and the Chicago chapter officers lead by Chairman Bob Yeoman. Thanks to a record amount of sponsorships the evening included a hosted bar and a great steak dinner.

    Manufacturing in US Shrank in August for 3rd Month
    Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Manufacturing in the U.S. contracted for a third month in August, the longest slide since the recession ended and a sign the expansion is at risk of losing a source of strength. The Institute for Supply Management's factory index fell to 49.6, the lowest since July 2009, from 49.8 in July, the Tempe, Arizona-based group said. Economists in the Bloomberg survey projected an August reading of 50, which is the dividing line between expansion and contraction. Measures of orders, production and employment were the weakest since 2009. More

The second consecutive monthly rise in core orders signaled rebuilding in the quake-ravaged northeast was underpinning capital spending, but Europe's debt crisis and slowing Chinese and U.S. economies cloud the outlook.

    Auctioneers Feel the 'Pawn Stars' Effect
    Akron Beacon-Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Auctioneer Jack Kiko said he really started noticing it this spring. Bidders yelling, "Yuuup!" Someone telling a winner to "Go pay the lady." The term "picker" dropped more frequently into conversations.
