Anchorage Economic Development Corp. President Bill Popp said the Anchorage economy is "flat but good," essentially doing well compared to the rest of the nation. Photo/Tim Bradner/AJOC Anchorage's economy is muddling along and that's just fine, says Bill Popp, president of Anchorage Economic Development Corp. Popp coined the phrase "flat is good" earlier this year in his annual forecast for the city. It was an effort to put an upbeat spin on local conditions and contrast Anchorage with Lower 48 communities still confronting the sharp national recession. So far, things are bearing out Popp's ...
The Mudflats | Open Thread – Buttons!
While at the Democratic convention in Sitka I got a little collection of buttons, one from each Democratic candidate for governor.  I enjoyed comparing and contrasting the buttons, and I thought it might be fun to take a poll and see which one you all like best.  I’ll be comparing and contrasting some other things about the candidates in the coming weeks, but I thought we might as well start with the lowly campaign button and work up from there. First thing I noticed was the color scheme.  Not a drop of red to be found.  The Alaskan colors of the blue and yellow on the state flag seemed to prevail for Poe and Berkowitz, ... market research, surveys and trends
EDFish » Fishermen Express Concerns in Washington Today; Catch ...
I’ve been trying to stay quiet on this “United we Fish” march that’s taking place in Washington DC this week. But frankly it’s annoying me to the point that I just can’t hold it in any longer. I’m all for anglers going down to DC and expressing their concerns. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it didn’t bother me greatly that anglers are going, literally by the busload, to join hands with a commercial fishing industry not known for its conservation ethic, in an effort to weaken some of the most important provisions of fishery management law . A little background here before I continue with what is my opinion, and my ... market research, surveys and trends

Anchorage: Economy - Major Industries and Commercial Activity
While the U.S. economy has shown declines in recent years, Alaska's economy has shown a relatively stable growth of two percent annually. The United States government and the oil industry have been integral to the Anchorage economy. The federally funded Alaska Railroad gave Anchorage its start; later the military defense system supported an essentially undiversified economic base. This base expanded in the 1970s when the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, one of the largest construction projects in history, brought thousands of workers and increased service industries. Although Juneau is the state capital, Anchorage is the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Lawmakers from Congress gathered Tuesday in Chicago and others will meet today in Alaska, as officials give their last goodbyes to former Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-IL) and former Sen.

Veterinarian jobs in alaska? - Yahoo! Answers
Doing a bit of research on places I would like to live after college/vet-school/residency and right now Alaska is on the front burner.

I plan to continue through with a residency after vet school to specialize (surgery or pathology, can't make up my mind yet) so I would hate to go to a place that this wouldn't be taken advantage of. Also, if I could ...
Who is Harry Alford and why did he call Barbara Boxer a racist?
CIA director Leon Panetta leaks information about a secret program started under the Bush administration aimed at killing al Qaeda members. Is the agency ginning up a fake controversy to divert attention from the health care debate? "Karl Rove is right. This faux controversy is a cover for the Speaker to get out from under the trouble she's gotten herself into." Bruce Winnie Roy, UT "Leon Panetta's outing of the covert CIA program was political payback for embarrassing Nancy Pelosi a few weeks ago." William Jenisch Chandler, AZ "If Congress is upset because the CIA is working on a plan to kill ...
