New website links nation's veterans, employers




FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. — First Lady Michelle Obama announced a new online tool Wednesday to help military veterans connect with employers and said some of the nation's biggest companies are expanding the number of veterans they hire.

In a speech that was the kind of pep talk you would expect for new college graduates, the first lady offered a twist — the notion that soldiers who have seen combat in Iraq and Afghanistan probably can handle a job interview at Xerox or UPS.

"Today we need you to start thinking and talking about yourselves for a change," she said. "Don't be afraid to brag a little bit about yourselves."

Obama announced the new private-sector commitments to hire veterans, including Capital One Bank's pledge to hire 55,000 veterans and their spouses, a doubling of UPS' commitment from 25,000 to 50,000 jobs and 10,000 new jobs for veterans at Xerox.

"Today, more than 100 companies have come here for one purpose — to hire you," she said at a jobs summit here for transitioning veterans. "We've got your backs."

She urged veterans not to be shy about their experiences and what they can bring to the job.

"If you want a job, you can't be modest about your qualifications," Obama said. "Anyone out there would be lucky to have you on their team."


I guarantee you: They'll be the best employees you have.

The Veterans Employment Center, available atwww.ebenefits.va.gov, allows veterans to see the benefits they've accumulated during their service, post a resume and learn what kinds of jobs they might be able to do based on their skills.

Roughly 700,000 to 800,000 military veterans are in the job market at any given time, said Rosye Cloud, senior adviser for veteran employment with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. That number includes about 240,000 people who have become veterans since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Nationwide, 172,000 post-9/11 veterans were unemployed in March, down from 207,000 the year previous, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That translates to a 6.9% jobless rate, compared with 9.2% a year ago. The overall national rate was 6.7%.

The new web tool is the first of its kind from the federal government, Cloud said.

"As my husband said, 'You fought for us; you shouldn't have to fight for a job,' " the first lady said.

Earlier at the summit, Maj. Gen. James C. McConville said the Army has a responsibility to make sure its veterans can move smoothly into civilian life with good jobs.

The commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell said his father, also a veteran, was able to "send all his kids to college and live the American dream" thanks to the G.I. Bill and steady employment.

"And that's what we owe our veterans today," McConville said.

Sgt. Clay Loymendy, 24, of Riverside, Calif., has been stationed at Fort Campbell for more than two years. He said he'll probably go to a technical school soon so he can start working in wind turbine production or as a cell tower technician.

Brig. Gen. David K. MacEwen, adjutant general of the Army, said employers should know that veterans are fit and drug free and will show up to work on time.

"I guarantee you: They'll be the best employees you have," MacEwen said.

Speakers at the forum Wednesday spoke of a period of major changes for soldiers, veterans, their families and the communities they live in as the war winds down and the number of troops shrinks.

Veterans sometimes have to change their mindset when they leave the battlefield for the job market, MacEwen said.

Soldiers are accustomed to talking in terms of "we" and what their team has accomplished, but they have to make a transition to "I" and individual achievements, he said.

Eric Eversole, executive director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes program, said too many veterans don't know how to make a "30-second elevator pitch" about themselves and their skills.

Veterans need to put their military service front and center on their resumes, he said.

Others at the summit included Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer. Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient for bravery in saving members of his team in Afghanistan in 2009, said young veterans of the post-9/11 wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have no good reason to be unemployed.

Meyer received a standing ovation from the 101st Airborne Division. But speaking from personal experience, he said not a lot of job descriptions ask for former snipers.

Meyer, who is working with the Chamber of Commerce Foundation in its outreach to veterans, said the government's launch of its integrated jobs website will help bridge that gap, translating military skills to civilian terms.

He said less than 1% of this generation has carried the burden of America's longest war. That means the civilian and military worlds have a difficult time understanding each other.

"It's something as small as in the military we call it a mission and in the corporate world they call it a project," he said.

FDA announces rules restricting e-cigarettes and cigars




As electronic cigarettes soar in popularity, the U.S. government Thursday is proposing historic rules to ban their sale to minors and require warning labels as well as federal approval.

Three years after saying it would regulate e-cigarettes, the Food and Drug Administration is moving to control not only these battery-powered devices but also cigars, pipe tobacco, hookahs (water pipes) and dissolvable tobacco products. Currently, the FDA regulates cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless products such as snuff.

The proposed rules won't ban advertising unless the products make health-related claims nor will they ban the use of flavors such as chocolate or bubble gum, which public health officials say might attract children.

"This is an important moment for consumer protection," said FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, noting tobacco remains "the leading cause of death and disease in this country." The rules will require manufacturers to report their ingredients to the FDA and obtain its approval. They also ban free tobacco samples and most vending-machine sales.

"Some of these regulations will be very restrictive," said Ray Story, founder of industry group TVECA (Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association), who added he obtained his own pre-release copy of the rules. He said they could be costly for smaller businesses and slow the growth of a product that advocates say has helped many smokers kick the habit.

Still, Story said, consumers might benefit, because "it provides them a product that will be consistent." e-cigarettes contain varying ingredients and levels of nicotine that are heated into a vapor that users inhale in a practice known as "vaping." Most look like conventional cigarettes but some resemble everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks.

The rules come as e-cigarette sales, buoyed by TV ads with Hollywood celebrities , have soared in recent year and debate has risen about whether the devices are more apt to lure kids toward tobacco or help adults quit smoking.

An increasing number of states have cracked down by extending indoor smoking restrictions to e-cigarettes. Last month, U.S. poison centers reported a surge in illnesses linked to the liquid nicotine used in the devices.

While they don't contain many of the harmful chemicals of conventional cigarettes, the FDA found trace amounts of toxic and carcinogenic ingredients in several samples in late 2008 when the e-cigarette market was just beginning in the United States. It sought to regulate them as drug-delivery devices, but in 2010, a federal judge ruled it could only do so if they made therapeutic claims. So in April 2011, the agency said it would regulate them as tobacco products, because the nicotine is derived from tobacco leaves.

"It's taken more than three years to issue a proposed rule, which we think is inexcusable," said Vince Willmore of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, an anti-smoking group. "It's allowed a Wild West marketplace with irresponsible marketing and no control over the product." He says the FDA should quickly finalize the rules, which face a 75-day public comment period and further review.

The proposed rules walk a narrow path. They will require tobacco products that weren't on the market by Feb. 25, 2007 — a date set by a federal law — to apply for FDA review within 24 months after the rules are issued. The products can stay on the market pending FDA's review, says Mitch Zeller, director of FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, adding they can seek an exemption from additional reviews if minor changes are made.

Despite these requirements, the proposal doesn't contain the marketing restrictions sought by some critics that were almost sure to trigger litigation. Craig Weiss, CEO of NJoy, a top-selling e-cigarette, said he supports "reasonable regulation" but would "respond very forcefully to any attempt to limit my free speech right to promote my product."

Several dominant e-cigarette manufacturers, which now include the nation's three largest cigarette makers — Philip Morris, R.J. Reynolds and Lorillard — have embraced limited regulation such as a ban on sales to minors. Yet they've argued that their e-products shouldn't be regulated as tightly as conventional cigarettes — an approach the FDA appears to be taking.

The FDA said the rule aims to bolster product safety. It said since e-cigarettes have not been fully studied, consumers have no way to know how much nicotine or other chemicals they contain and whether they're safe or beneficial.

FDA announces rules restricting e-cigarettes and cigars




As electronic cigarettes soar in popularity, the U.S. government Thursday is proposing historic rules to ban their sale to minors and require warning labels as well as federal approval.

Three years after saying it would regulate e-cigarettes, the Food and Drug Administration is moving to control not only these battery-powered devices but also cigars, pipe tobacco, hookahs (water pipes) and dissolvable tobacco products. Currently, the FDA regulates cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless products such as snuff.

The proposed rules won't ban advertising unless the products make health-related claims nor will they ban the use of flavors such as chocolate or bubble gum, which public health officials say might attract children.

"This is an important moment for consumer protection," said FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, noting tobacco remains "the leading cause of death and disease in this country." The rules will require manufacturers to report their ingredients to the FDA and obtain its approval. They also ban free tobacco samples and most vending-machine sales.

"Some of these regulations will be very restrictive," said Ray Story, founder of industry group TVECA (Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association), who added he obtained his own pre-release copy of the rules. He said they could be costly for smaller businesses and slow the growth of a product that advocates say has helped many smokers kick the habit.

Still, Story said, consumers might benefit, because "it provides them a product that will be consistent." e-cigarettes contain varying ingredients and levels of nicotine that are heated into a vapor that users inhale in a practice known as "vaping." Most look like conventional cigarettes but some resemble everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks.

The rules come as e-cigarette sales, buoyed by TV ads with Hollywood celebrities , have soared in recent year and debate has risen about whether the devices are more apt to lure kids toward tobacco or help adults quit smoking.

An increasing number of states have cracked down by extending indoor smoking restrictions to e-cigarettes. Last month, U.S. poison centers reported a surge in illnesses linked to the liquid nicotine used in the devices.

While they don't contain many of the harmful chemicals of conventional cigarettes, the FDA found trace amounts of toxic and carcinogenic ingredients in several samples in late 2008 when the e-cigarette market was just beginning in the United States. It sought to regulate them as drug-delivery devices, but in 2010, a federal judge ruled it could only do so if they made therapeutic claims. So in April 2011, the agency said it would regulate them as tobacco products, because the nicotine is derived from tobacco leaves.

"It's taken more than three years to issue a proposed rule, which we think is inexcusable," said Vince Willmore of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, an anti-smoking group. "It's allowed a Wild West marketplace with irresponsible marketing and no control over the product." He says the FDA should quickly finalize the rules, which face a 75-day public comment period and further review.

The proposed rules walk a narrow path. They will require tobacco products that weren't on the market by Feb. 25, 2007 — a date set by a federal law — to apply for FDA review within 24 months after the rules are issued. The products can stay on the market pending FDA's review, says Mitch Zeller, director of FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, adding they can seek an exemption from additional reviews if minor changes are made.

Despite these requirements, the proposal doesn't contain the marketing restrictions sought by some critics that were almost sure to trigger litigation. Craig Weiss, CEO of NJoy, a top-selling e-cigarette, said he supports "reasonable regulation" but would "respond very forcefully to any attempt to limit my free speech right to promote my product."

Several dominant e-cigarette manufacturers, which now include the nation's three largest cigarette makers — Philip Morris, R.J. Reynolds and Lorillard — have embraced limited regulation such as a ban on sales to minors. Yet they've argued that their e-products shouldn't be regulated as tightly as conventional cigarettes — an approach the FDA appears to be taking.

The FDA said the rule aims to bolster product safety. It said since e-cigarettes have not been fully studied, consumers have no way to know how much nicotine or other chemicals they contain and whether they're safe or beneficial.
