Saturday/ US Jobs report

We are working this weekend – to make up for the extended Chinese holiday weekend.    The US jobs report of Friday was also reported on Japanese TV here.    (Yes, for a Japanese illiterate person I watch way too much Japanese TV, but it’s fun to figure out the graphics).   The symbol 万 man means 10,000  – so it says 103,000 jobs added.   In English we don’t have a symbol for 10,000 but myriad means exactly that, actually.  So a myriagon is a polygon with 10,000 sides.

Of course the 9.1% would be the official US unemployment rate, unchanged.
