Larchmont Sanctuary Spa Hosts Blood Drive
As part of our ongoing community wellness activities, Larchmont Sanctuary Spa is proud to host a blood drive on Monday August 22nd from 2:00 – 8:00pm at 331 N Larchmont Blvd.
For most people the decision to donate blood is a very personal one. Statistically speaking, either you or a friend/family member will need an infusion of donated blood at some point in their lives. That blood came from someone like you who was willing to help a stranger going through cancer treatments, recovering from surgery or dealing with some other medical condition.
For the recipient of the blood the value is clear – it’s the gift of life. For the donor, the value is knowing that you made a difference in someone else’s life at the point they needed it the most.
Donating blood is incredibly important and only takes a few minutes. Be a Hero today and register at www.RedCrossBlood.org or www.RedCross.org/prepare/mobile-apps using sponsor code Larchmont.
July’s Employment report. showed that 255,000 new jobs were added to the economy last month, exceeding forecasts of 185,000. The unemployment rate remained at 4.9% even though analysts were expecting to see 4.8%. However, the important headline was the payroll number that blew past expectations for the second consecutive month and indicates the employment sector is indeed strengthening after spring volatility.
This was clearly bad news for mortgage rates.
Another negative in this morning’s report that is worth noting is the 0.3% increase in average hourly earnings. This reading has picked up its pace this year. Rising wages helps fuel inflation. If inflation strengthens, more Fed rate hikes are likely in the near future.
Overall, today’s report was not what mortgage shoppers wanted to see. What the report also does is raise the possibility of a September rate hike by the Fed. Watch for that theory to become a major talking point over the next several weeks. But also keep in mind that the Bank of England just cut rates over economic growth concerns and there are still issues on the global level that are a threat to our growth.
