CAI, UT Offer Executive Education in Bradley County

CLEVELAND, Tenn.—Executive education is now available in Cleveland, according to Lisa Pickel, executive director for Cleveland Associated Industries (CAI).

CAI is collaborating with the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Business Administration to provide a Manufacturing Leadership Program in Bradley County. The program’s purpose is to accelerate the development process of becoming an effective and successful site leader and is designed to impact plant managers, manufacturing managers, directors of operations, directors of manufacturing and other managers being considered for site leadership positions.

“Seven consecutive, two-day sessions over an eight-month period will allow participants to apply concepts learned in the classroom directly to their manufacturing facility with the support of UT’s business faculty, and without their having to travel to Knoxville,” Pickel explained.

She continued, “Manufacturers in our region no longer function within the boundaries of our county, our state or even our country. They must know how to compete successfully in a global environment. To take our manufacturing facilities to the next level, site leaders need to develop solid leadership skills and the broadened functional business skills necessary to do so.”

Austin Cone, cost accounting manager with Mueller Company, is a core participant of the Manufacturing Leadership Program. Cone views the program “as an investment in both my company and career. Every session has been applicable to situations I have faced in the last 12 to 18 months. Being able to share and hear experiences within my peer group has had a powerful effect on me and helped to engrain the ideas being taught.”

 The Manufacturing Leadership Program began in January at the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce with 10 core participants who will be a part of the eight-month program. Each participant will build an individualized leadership development plan under the guidance of a dedicated leadership coach. The goal is to help them better understand themselves as leaders, the people they lead and the environments in which they lead.

“We have some amazing manufacturing facilities in Cleveland and Bradley County, and we must be proactive about preserving and advancing them by developing their leadership,” Pickel said.

The Manufacturing Leadership Program also allows individuals to choose from the sessions offered each month.

“The curriculum offers a variety of classes during each two-day session that any interested individual can select from a la carte,” Pickel said. “For instance, the January session included a class on Conflict Resolution and one on Management vs. Leadership that could have been selected without being one of the core participants registered for the entire series.”

The next session is slated for Feb. 27-28 followed by March 27-28. For more information about the individual classes, contact Lisa Pickel at 423-472-6587 or lpickel@clevelandchamber.com. For details about UT’s graduate and executive education leadership programs, visit www.Leadership.utk.edu.

Cleveland Associated Industries, established in 1965, has a twofold purpose: (1) to serve the needs of its member companies and (2) to establish an organization through which industry may effectively utilize its collective resources and talents in a program of positive action for the betterment of the community.

Last Update on December 18, 2014 18:59 GMT

WALL STREET

NEW YORK (AP) --Wall Street is in rally mode for the second straight day.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up close to 300 points in midday trading. The Nasdaq was ahead nearly 80 and the Standard & Poor's 500 was up more than 30.

Oracle is leading a rally in technology shares after the business software maker reported earnings that were better than expected.

Energy stocks are lagging as the price of crude oil turned lower after an early gain.

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fewer Americans sought unemployment benefits last week, a sign of solid job security and growing confidence among employers.

The Labor Department says weekly unemployment benefits applications dropped 6,000 to a seasonally adjusted 289,000. That is the lowest level since late October.

The four-week average, a less volatile measure, declined 750 to 298,750.

Applications are a proxy for layoffs. The average has fallen nearly 13 percent in the past year, evidence the job market is improving. Companies are cutting fewer jobs as the economy expands and hiring has picked up.

In the first 11 months of this year, employers have added 2.65 million jobs. That already makes 2014 the best year for hiring since 1999.

MORTGAGE RATES

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Average U.S. long-term mortgage rates fell this week, with the benchmark 30-year loan rate reaching a new low for the year.

The rates' historically low levels could be a boon to potential homebuyers. Mortgage company Freddie Mac says the nationwide average for a 30-year mortgage dropped to 3.80 percent this week from 3.93 percent last week. It is now at its lowest level since May 2013.

At the beginning of the year, the 30-year rate stood at 4.53 percent.

The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, declined to 3.09 percent from 3.20 percent last week.

Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which has fallen to its lowest levels since May 2013. It traded at 2.14 percent Wednesday.

LEADING INDICATORS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An index designed to predict the future health of the economy posted a third straight solid gain in November.

The Conference Board says its index of leading indicators increased 0.6 percent in November, matching the revised October gain. The October reading had originally been reported as a 0.9 percent increase. The index posted a 0.8 percent rise in September after being unchanged in August.

Conference Board economists say the widespread gains in the leading index are pointing to strong underlying conditions in the U.S. economy.

The leading index is composed of 10 forward-pointing indictors.

PHILADELPHIA FED

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Manufacturing in the Philadelphia region grew at a much slower pace in December compared with the previous month. But the drop came after factory activity reached its highest levels in 21 years in November.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia says its index of regional factory activity dropped to 24.5 this month from 40.8 in November. Last month's reading was the highest since December 1993. Any figure above zero indicates expansion.

The data indicates that manufacturing is still growing at a healthy clip, despite this month's slowdown, and helping to drive a broader economic expansion. The survey found that factories are hiring, but at a much slower pace. Measures of new orders and shipments also fell.

The survey covers manufacturing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

FORD-AIR BAG RECALL

DETROIT (AP) -- Ford says it's expanding a recall for faulty driver's side air bag inflators to the entire U.S. as demanded by the government.

The move adds 447,000 Ford vehicles to the list of those recalled due to driver's inflators made by Japan's Takata Corp. The inflators can explode with too much force, spewing shrapnel into drivers and passengers.

Ford's action puts pressure on BMW and Chrysler, the only two automakers that haven't agreed to national recalls. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration made the demand, saying the inflators are dangerous.

Honda and Mazda recalls already are national. Previously the recalls were limited to high-humidity states mainly along the Gulf Coast.

Ford's national recall covers certain 2005 to 2008 Mustangs and 2005 and 2006 GT sports cars.

MERCK-CANCER DEAL

KENILWORTH, N.J. (AP) -- Drugmaker Merck says it's bought a Swiss biotech company developing cancer drugs as part of its strategy to be a top player in cancer, one of the hottest pharmaceutical research areas.

Merck & Co., based in Kenilworth, New Jersey, will pay up to $110 million upfront to OncoEthix. The privately held company could receive further payments of up to $265 million if it meets targets for testing and product approval.

The deal gives Merck ownership of an experimental treatment called OTX015 that could be the first in a new class of drugs that block proteins involved in cancer cell growth and survival.

The drug demonstrated effectiveness in early-stage testing of patients with blood cancers, and OncoEthix last month began initial patient testing against five different types of solid tumors.

AMAZON-ONE-HOUR SHIPPING

SEATTLE (AP) -- Amazon says it is offering one-hour delivery of thousands of basic products to its Prime customers in Manhattan.

The online retail giant rolled out the service, known as Prime Now, to select areas of Manhattan on Thursday. It provides delivery of household products like paper towels, shampoo, books, toys and batteries.

Amazon says Prime Now is available to customers who are already enrolled in Amazon Prime, a membership service that costs $99 a year. The one-hour delivery costs $7.99 but the company also offers two-hour delivery for free.

Seattle-based Amazon says it hopes to roll the service out to additional cities in 2015.

ARIZONA SHERIFF-IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT

PHOENIX (AP) -- An Arizona sheriff known for arresting immigrant workers on charges of using fake or stolen IDs to get jobs is planning to close the controversial squad that investigates such cases.

The ID theft cases marked Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's last major foothold in immigration enforcement after his powers to enforce such laws have been curtailed in recent years.

Lawyers for Arpaio told a judge overseeing a challenge to such cases that he intends to close the squad once an investigation concludes in January or February.

Since 2008, Arpaio's office has raided 83 businesses in which more than 700 immigrants have been charged with using fake or stolen IDs to get hired.

A memo by a sheriff's official says the agency will be voluntarily halting its work-related ID theft enforcement.

GAY RIGHTS-APPLE CEO

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Apple CEO Tim Cook is donating money to help fund a gay rights initiative in his native Alabama and two other Southern states.

The Washington-based Human Rights Campaign announced the contribution Thursday.

The amount isn't being disclosed, but the organization calls it "substantial."

Human Rights Campaign spokesman Jason Rahlan says the group hopes Cook's support will encourage others to support its Project One America campaign in Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi.

The $8.5 million campaign aims to build acceptance for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people in the states.

Cook made headlines in October by coming out as the first openly gay chief executive of a Fortune 500 company.

His announcement came just days after Cook encouraged Alabama to be more accepting of gay rights during a speech in Montgomery.

RUSSIA-PUTIN

MOSCOW (AP) -- President Vladimir Putin is promising to fix Russia's economic woes within two years by diversifying, and predicts that the plummeting ruble will soon recover.

In a live, three-hour news conference that has become a Putin holiday tradition, the Russian leader demonstrated unwavering confidence in his domestic policies despite the catastrophic collapse in the ruble. His fierce defiance toward the United States flared throughout as he insisted the West was trying to destroy Russia to grab Siberia's great natural resources.

Despite his tough rhetoric, Putin held out hope for normalizing ties with the West, saying that Russia still hopes to expand its gas supplies to southern Europe using a prospective gas hub on Turkey's border with Greece.

This year Putin held his televised extravaganza from a particularly strong vantage point: An Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Thursday showed his approval rating among Russians stood at 81 percent -- a level far above the ratings for other world leaders.

SAUDI-OIL

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- Saudi Arabia's Petroleum Minister Ali Naimi says there are no links between the kingdom's decision to oppose production cuts and politics.

Naimi told the official Saudi Press Agency on Thursday that there are "incorrect information and analyses... linking petroleum decisions with political objectives." He says eventually "others will see that what we are doing will yield the best results for the kingdom."

Last week, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that the sharp fall in global oil prices is the result of "treachery," in an apparent reference to Saudi Arabia. The kingdom's rivals are concerned that Saudi Arabia, which is capable of withstanding revenue losses, is forcing lower oil prices to damage their economies.

Naimi says oil prices would be unaffected by production cuts and erode Saudi Arabia's market share.

BRITAIN-AIRSPACE

LONDON (AP) -- Britain's air traffic service says it will compensate airlines for last week's computer glitch that briefly shut down London's busy airspace.

The National Air Traffic Service said late Wednesday "there will be a financial consequence for the company from the delay caused by the technical problem." It says the amount of the rebate to airlines is being calculated.

Passengers caught up in the disruption will have to seek compensation through their airlines.

NATS says an unprecedented computer systems failure Dec. 12 touched off mayhem that caused delays and canceled flights for thousands of passengers.

Chief executive Richard Deakin told British lawmakers Wednesday that "I can guarantee that this particular problem will not happen again but I cannot honestly sit here and say we will never have a computer glitch again."

IRELAND-AER LINGUS-IAG BID

DUBLIN (AP) -- Irish airline Aer Lingus has rejected a takeover bid by the International Consolidated Airlines Group, the parent company of British Airways and Spain's Iberia.

Shares in the Dublin-based carrier surged by as much as 21 percent Thursday amid rumors of a possible bid. Those gains were pared after IAG issued a statement confirming its proposal had been rejected by the Aer Lingus board.

Analysts long have seen IAG as a likely bidder for Aer Lingus. IAG chief executive Willie Walsh was previously chief executive of Aer Lingus before the formerly state-owned airline's 2006 privatization.

Aer Lingus operates a substantial European short-haul network and a half-dozen routes to the United States. In recent years it has struggled to compete with larger Dublin-based rival Ryanair, which has mounted three failed takeover bids.
