MENLO PARK TECHNOLOGY COMPANY EXPLOSIONKILLS ONE,INJURES ANOTHER
By Paul Wisemanand Christopher S. Rugaber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Employers added no jobs in August — an alarming setback for theeconomy that renewed fears of another reces-sion and raised pressure on Washington to endthe hiring standstill.Worries
ared Friday after the release of theworst jobs report since September 2010. Totalpayrolls were unchanged,the
rst time since1945 that the government reported a net jobchange of zero. The unemployment ratestayed at 9.1 percent.The dismal news two day before Labor Daysent stocks plunging. The Dow Jones industri-al average fell 253 points,or more than 2 per-cent.Analysts say the economy cannot continueto expand unless hiring picks up. In the
rstsix months of 2011,growth was measured atan annual rate of 0.7 percent.Companies are mostly keeping their pay-rolls intact. They’re not laying off many work-ers. But they’re not hiring,either. Withoutmore jobs to fuel consumer spending,econo-mists say another recession would beinevitable. Consumer spending accounts forabout 70 percent of economic growth.Like a wobbling bicycle,“you either reac-celerate or you fall over,said JamesO’Sullivan,chief economist at MF Global.“Something has to give.”When growth is slow and unemploymenthigh,companies feel little pressure to increasepay and bene
ts. In August,for instance,hourly wages fell.

Seeing a vulture is usually perceivedas a bad omen,but the bald-headed scav-engers are an ecologically vital group of birds currently facing a range of threatsthat could lead to global extinction.Vultures feed on carrion as part of nature’s cleanup crew,and they are animportant asset to the world’s ecosys-tem. In recent years,their population hasplummeted due to viruses from carcass-es,habitat destruction and poaching.Because of the growing threat to vul-tures,CuriOdyssey in San Mateo wasinspired to join nearly 100 zoos andwildlife centers across the globe to par-ticipate in International VultureAwareness Day today.“We want people to be appreciative of animals that aren’t necessarily the cutestor fuzziest people generally want to loveor appreciate,said Melanie Echanique,a 13-year animal programs keeper atCuriOdyssey. “Vultures are importantanimals to have around,and we shouldacknowledge their place in the animalkingdom.”

End summer with a hike
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
A day at the beach in San MateoCounty usually comes with a coolbreeze and beautiful scenery.Add a little exercise to the nextouting by visiting the county’s latestacquisition — the 140-acre PillarPoint Bluff near Moss Beach.Interestingly,it’s not a new parcel of land which people can explore. Infact,those familiar with the areamay not notice a difference. Thosewho haven’t taken the drive upHighway 1 may
nd an untapped jewel in the property formerly over-seen by the Peninsula Open SpaceTrust.With multiple trail heads,the hikecan begin on pretty even land or abit of an uphill hike. The uphilloption — which is where you wouldstart if using the directions at theend of this story — isn’t too strenu-ous.Dirt trails combine over the parcelto give you numerous options for aleisurely hike with friends — two-legged or furry four-legged ones.One could walk on a rather largeloop or take a detour on the JeanLauer Trail,which intersects the
