• The sequester could result in significant impacts on the national park system, including a three-week delay of Yellowstone’s spring opening and shuttered campgrounds and visitor centers along the Blue Ridge Parkway, according to an article by Lisa Rein.

• Younger veterans have a hard time finding work, even though veterans as a whole have a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, according to an Associated Press article.

• The second-term turnover among President Obama’s senior staff is typical but still challenging, wrote In the Loop’s Emily Heil.
