Productive Employment, Sustainable Enterprises and Skills Development in Asia and the Pacific

Even before the current series of economic and jobs crises the quality of jobs being generated was a cause for concern. Unless this issue is addressed it will not be possible to rebalance growth in the region effectively. Non-standard and informal employment, offering low pay and poor working conditions, have grown steadily and are contributing to growing inequalities in incomes.
Closer attention is needed to reducing poverty, creating productive employment and social and economic mobility, with particular attention given to the needs of young people. The formal economy can be expanded in low and middle income economies in the region, and an enabling environment with support for sustainable enterprises is possible.

The 280 MM Gun at the Nevada Proving Ground

The first artillery test was on May 25, 1953 at the Nevada Test Site. Fired as part of Operation Upshot-Knothole and codenamed Shot GRABLE, a 280 mm (11 inch) shell with a gun-type fission warhead was fired 10,000 m (6.2 miles) and detonated 160 m (525 ft) above the ground with an estimated yield of 15 kilotons. This was the only nuclear artillery shell ever actually fired in the US test program. The shell was 1384 mm (4.5 ft) long and weighed 365 kg (805 lb); it was fired from a special artillery piece, nicknamed “Atomic Annie”, built by the Artillery Test Unit of Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Around 3,200 personnel were present. The warhead was designated the W9 and 80 were produced from 1952-53 for the T-124 shell. It was retired in 1957.
