TORONTO — North American markets were slightly lower Friday following better-than-expected durable goods orders in April that suggested encouraging news for U.S. manufacturers.The S&P/TSX composite index fell 11.91 points to 12,646.18.On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrials average dropped 66.76 points to 15,227.74, the Nasdaq lost 21.49 points to 3,437.93, while the S&P 500 dipped 10.50 points to 1,640.01.The Canadian dollar was down 0.34 of a cent to 96.72 cents US.The U.S. Commerce Department reported durable goods orders for April rose 3.3% after a 5.9% decline in March. Analysts had predicted a jump of only 1.5%. The department says the figure was buoyed by more demand for military and civilian aircraft and an increase in business investment.But the positive news was not enough to bounce back the markets, which fell a day earlier over unexpectedly weak Chinese manufacturing numbers and worries that the U.S. Federal Reserve will start withdrawing its monetary stimulus.The Fed is buying $85 billion worth of bonds every month as part of its stimulus program that has kept interest rates low and encouraged investors to put money into stocks and other risky assets. If the Fed slows down or ends its bond purchases, investors fear it could lead to an outpouring of money from stocks.Earlier this week, Fed chairman Ben Bernanke said the central does not plan on doing this soon, but will consider it as early as next September.Meanwhile, the commodities market continued see modest declines.The July crude contract was down $1.01 to US$93.24 a barrel, while June gold bullion lost $2.50 to US$1,389.30 an ounce. July copper was down a penny at US$3.29 a pound.The Toronto Stock Exchange was boosted by a lift from Manitoba Telecom Services after its shares rose $1.78 to $33.88 in early-morning trading.Winnipeg-based MTS announced that it will be selling its national telecommunications arm, Allstream, to Accelero Capital Holdings in a deal worth $520 million.Shares in National Bank also climbed by 1.38%, or $1.04, to $76.60 after Canada’s sixth-largest bank said it was hiking its dividend and buying back some of its shares because its second-quarter profit beat analyst estimates by a wide margin.Japan’s Nikkei 225 index, which plummeted more than 7% Thursday, posted a big morning gain and then took investors on a dizzying ride into negative territory swinging more than 1,000 points between the day’s high and low before closing 0.9% higher at 14,612.45 on Friday.The Nikkei has been the best-performing major index this year, having risen around 45% to five-year highs before Thursday’s drop. The index has been buoyed by aggressive monetary stimulus by the Bank of Japan, which has piled pressure on the yen.In Europe, Britain’s FTSE 100 was nearly unchanged at 6,695.82. Germany’s DAX rose 0.3% to 8,378.07. France’s CAC-40 gained 0.5% to 3,988.59.Elsewhere in Asia, South Korea’s Kospi added 0.2% to 1,973.45. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng bobbed between slight gains and losses before falling 0.2% to 22,618.67.Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 tumbled 1.6% to 4,983.50, hit by losses in banking and mining shares. Benchmarks in the Philippines, Taiwan and New Zealand also fell. Mainland Chinese shares rose, with the Shanghai Composite Index gaining 0.6% to 2,288.53, while the smaller Shenzhen Composite Index rose 1.5% to 1,029.3.
“I’m more optimistic than I’ve been on any of my visits before to this region that some of the worst wars of our generation are coming to an end,” said Mr. Egeland at a press conference in Nairobi.He arrived there from Juba, in southern Sudan, after stops in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Uganda.Mr. Egeland said that the DRC and northern Uganda could see a dramatic return to normalcy in the coming months, with hundreds of thousands going back to their homes. He said that improving conditions in the region, where conflict has claimed millions of lives, is “the greatest challenge of our time.”Mr. Egeland added that, after meeting with the Ugandan Government and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group, he was hopeful that the LRA would soon begin releasing some of the thousands of women and children it has abducted.He expressed concern that the UN system, though more than willing to help with recovery and the return of displaced persons, would not have enough money to get the job done. He also voiced hope that African political, military and cultural elites would avoid the catastrophic mistakes they made in the past and that there would not be impunity for crimes against civilians, especially widespread rapes.“Sexual abuse of women has become a cancer really in the whole culture, in the whole civilization of the Great Lakes Region,” he said noting that tens of thousands of women had been abused. “It is destroying the whole moral and social fabric of society.”Help was needed to build a justice system, he said, while pointing out that “it takes five minutes to demote a colonel who is responsible for soldiers who have abused civilians; it takes five minutes to demote or fire a public employee who tolerated corruption or tolerated abuse.”Asked whether he would be able to convince displaced persons that indictments against members of the LRA will not stop the peace process, Mr. Egeland said that merely forgiving and forgetting could lead to violence starting all over again. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has indicted the five most senior LRA leaders.“These are war crimes, crimes against humanity,” said Mr. Egeland. “Justice has to be served in a manner which is commensurate.”
VICTORIA – One of the first questions British Columbia’s Finance Minister Mike de Jong was asked when he introduced the Liberal government’s proposed Liquefied Natural Gas Income Tax as part of last week’s budget, was how oil and gas companies would react to paying a tax that could top out at seven per cent.“Of course, they want zero,” he replied.But de Jong pointed to a recent government-commissioned Ernst and Young survey that concluded B.C.’s all-in taxes — corporate, federal, provincial, municipal, carbon and the new LNG tax — put the province near or at the top of the heap compared to the tax regimes of potential competitors in Australia and the United States.The B.C. plan “appears competitive relative to the existing frameworks in Australia and the five U.S. states,” stated the 12-page review, with the proviso that their analysis does not take into account any “discretionary credits that a proponent may or may not be able to obtain.”The provincial budget last week revealed the government’s proposed two-tiered LNG tax, which will be introduced as legislation in the fall. The first tier will be 1.5 per cent to be introduced at the start of production. The second tier, when introduced, could rise to seven per cent once the plant is running and capital costs have been deducted.But no LNG revenues are in the government’s three-year fiscal plan and the B.C. finance minister acknowledged tax dollars won’t flow until plants are in production, which would be in 2018 at the earliest.The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, which represents major oil and gas companies, was lukewarm towards the proposed tax regime. B.C. spokesman Geoff Morrison said the plan provides a framework but more work needs to be done on the rates.A spokesman for LNG Canada, a proposed export facility near Kitimat that includes Shell Canada ( TSX:SHC), Korea Gas, Mitsubishi and PetroChina, said the company supports an LNG tax, but the seven per cent rate may be too high.“We appreciate the government’s commitment to flexibility on the two-tiered piece, ” said Shell Canada spokesman David Williams. “It’s clear that the rate has to be globally competitive. We’re concerned that the top end of that range in the second tier will not achieve that level of global competitiveness.”Greg Kist, president of TransCanada Corp.’s (TSX:TRP) Pacific Northwest LNG, said his company, which has proposed a multibillion-dollar LNG facility near Prince Rupert, is looking for clarity from the government on the tax regime before making a final investment decision by the end of the year.“For us, at this point in time, it’s a situation where we want to understand the details,” he said. “The LNG tax in and of itself is merely one piece of the fiscal framework we need to get clarity on before we can make a final investment decision.”Pacific Northwest LNG includes Malaysia’s Petronas, Japex and Petroleum Brunei.The Ernst and Young analysis included an aggregate review of expected taxes and royalties from LNG plants in Australia and B.C. over 20 years of operations.It found Australia has a slight edge on the low-end of returns, collecting about $151 billion in taxes and royalties, compared to $152 billion in B.C. But at the high-end after 20 years, B.C. wins out across all jurisdictions, charging about $270 billion in taxes, compared to $320 billion in Australia. Texas had the highest aggregate taxes after 20 years, coming in at about $370 billion.The Liberals believe LNG is a trillion-dollar opportunity that could pay off the provincial debt, currently at almost $62 billion.But industry analysts and the Opposition New Democrats say the Liberals are already a year behind schedule for a tax and royalty structure and in danger of losing the race.B.C. Natural Gas Development Minister Rich Coleman said more than nine months of work have gone into developing the tax regime and he’s convinced it will keep B.C. competitive.Coleman said B.C. offers a 100-year supply of natural gas, a shorter distance to Asian markets and a cooler climate to extract and cool the gas to liquid form, which occurs at minus 160 Celsius.“I heard one company president say at a conference, the ambient temperature of British Columbia is equivalent to getting the pipeline for free because you use less energy to cool it down,” he said.Coleman said tax negotiations with the oil and gas companies are at the stage where “somebody’s going to blink.” by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 23, 2014 10:00 am MDT LNG companies say BC LNG tax too high, Coleman says it’s almost at sweet spot AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Florida State running back Dalvin Cook (4) runs for a fourth-quarter touchdown against Florida at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla., on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2015. Florida State won, 27-2. (Stephen M. Dowell/Orlando Sentinel/TNS)#3 Oklahoma Sooners vs #15 Houston Cougars (Noon) NRG Stadium, Houston, TXThe college football season gets off to a fast start Saturday with the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners taking on the No. 15 Houston Cougars. Many expect Oklahoma to contend for a national title this year with Heisman candidate Baker Mayfield once again at quarterback and Samaje Perine running beside him. Houston isn’t going to go down easy though. Greg Ward Jr. is one of if not the top dual-threat quarterback in the nation, and Tom Herman is looking to show the big schools once again that his teams can compete with anyone. Expect a shootout with plenty of fireworks, as this one already has playoff implications.#5 LSU Tigers vs Wisconsin Badgers (3:30 p.m.) Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WIWill this be Les Miles’ last year? That is the question on the minds of many as LSU heads up to Wisconsin to take on the Badgers. With 19 returning starters, including superstar Leonard Fournette, this could be Miles’ most talented team. If Brandon Harris can step up his game, LSU could find themselves in the playoffs. Many expect Wisconsin to take a few steps back this year, but Paul Chryst believes the Badgers could shock some people. If Corey Clement can come back from his sports hernia injury that kept him out for the season last year, Wisconsin has a shot to stay with anyone. This game is going to be a slow grind and likely very low scoring.#18 Georgia Bulldogs vs #22 North Carolina Tar Heels (5:30 p.m.) Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GABecause of the loaded week one slate, No.18 Georgia vs No.22 North Carolina is not getting a lot of love. This game is HUGE though as the losing team can pretty much already kiss their playoff chances goodbye. Georgia decided to go with senior Greyson Lambert at quarterback, and the return of running back Nick Chubb has Bulldog fans very excited. With a brand new starting front seven on defense, it’ll be interesting to see how they handle Elijah Hood. Hood, UNC’s running back, ran for 1,463 yards last year and 17 touchdowns, astounding numbers. North Carolina is breaking in a new quarterback in Mitch Trubisky, but he has 8 returning starters around him on the offensive side. This one is going to come down to defense. Whichever team shows up defensively and shuts down the run will win this game.#20 USC Trojans vs #1 Alabama Crimson Tide (8 p.m.) AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TXThe defending national champions are back and just as good as ever. The Crimson Tide are once again the favorites to win the national title. For Alabama, it’ll be interesting to see how Cooper Bateman replaces Jake Coker and if Bo Scarbrough is as good as advertised. The defense is expected to be just as dominant even though Kirby Smart left for Georgia. If Cody Kessler had one more year of eligibility, USC would be the favorites to win the Pac-12. They return 16 starters from last year, 10 on the offensive side, and Adoree Jackson is a name that everyone will know by the end of the year. There is a good chance this game turns ugly as Alabama is going to look to assert its dominance early.#10 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Texas Longhorns (7:30 p.m.) Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, TXHow about some Sunday night college football. No.10 Notre Dame and Texas get to start their years off in primetime in Austin, Texas. For Notre Dame, many are wondering if this will finally be the year they get over the hump. They only return 9 starters from last year, but Brian Kelly feels that this could be his best team. Week one could also ultimately decide who will be Notre Dame’s QB, DeShone Kizer or last year’s original starter Malik Zaire. On the other side, Charlie Strong could be coaching for his job this year. He returns 15 starters from last year, so there are some expectations for Texas this year. Jerrod Heard is going to have to take a big step forward though at quarterback if Texas wants to win this game and eventually play in a bowl game.#11 Ole Miss Rebels vs #4 Florida State Seminoles (8 p.m.) Camping World Stadium, Orlando, FLIn a loaded first week of college football, the best game could be saved for last when No.11 Ole Miss travels to Orlando to take on No.4 Florida State on Monday night. The Rebels lost three of their top players to the NFL in Laremy Tunsil, Laquon Treadwell, and Robert Nkemdiche. This just means that Chad Kelly is going to have to step up, and he seems very equipped to dominate in the SEC. As for Florida State, the expectations for this year are huge. They return 18 starters from last year, including all 11 starters on offense. Sean Maguire is currently nursing a broken foot, but with Dalvin Cook at running back, Florida State should only face a minor hiccup. This game is going to come down to the wire as both teams have two solid offenses, good defenses, and great coaching.
Former Ohio State linebacker Andrew Sweat made national headlines when he walked away from an opportunity to play in the NFL on May 14, less than three weeks after signing with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent. He cited concussion symptoms as his reason to step away from the game. Sweat made the decision that playing professional football was not worth risking his long-term health. “I had three (concussions) at Ohio State,” Sweat told The Lantern. “I still was having symptoms – it was very scary. It’s not something that you experience often. You’re slowed down, you can’t think as well, it’s tough.” The link between football and head injuries has been reported and discussed often by the media and scientists who determine causes of head injuries while researching the risks and ways to prevent brain damage. Sweat said one of the symptoms he dealt with was depression. “Your mind’s just not right,” Sweat said. “I’ve never been depressed in my life but I mean, I was depressed in the spring because of my concussion. It’s definitely scary.” Dr. Paul Gubanich is a team physician for OSU Sports Medicine and an assistant clinical professor of internal medicine at OSU. Gubanich previously worked with professional football players as a member of the Cleveland Browns’ medical staff from 2004-2010. Gubanich told The Lantern that the link between athletes with concussions and depression is “something that we’re seeing more and more,” but head injuries are not necessarily the reason for their depression. “The truth is that we see (depression in athletes with concussions),” Gubanich said. “The underlying cause of that is not necessarily clear. The question becomes, is that actually a symptom of a concussion or is that a symptom of some other underlying process? The fact that they’re being treated for a chronic condition, that they’re removed from certain activities … We’re taking an athlete out of their normal environment – a young, healthy, vibrant person – and we’re changing their everyday activity.” A 2007 study in Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise, an official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, investigated the link between concussions and depression. This study, which was led by Kevin Guskiewicz, the chair of University of North Carolina’s Department of Exercise and Sport Science, said he found that retired professional football players who had three or more concussions in their playing careers were three times more likely to be diagnosed with depression than players who had no history of concussions. Sweat said he met with Dr. Michael “Micky” Collins, the clinical and executive director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Medicine Concussion Program, and was cleared to play. Due to patient privacy reasons, Collins declined The Lantern’s request for comment. Sweat, who is set to graduate from OSU this spring with a degree in marketing, said he will attend graduate school to pursue a career in law or medical sales. OSU athletic director Gene Smith, who told The Lantern in October 2010 that he suffered two concussions during his playing days, thinks Sweat is making the right decision. “I’m actually glad Andrew Sweat is going to law school,” Smith said during a Tuesday interview with The Lantern. “He’s a smart kid … he had a couple of tough concussions.” Sweat is only one of multiple players who have made the move in the past few weeks to give up their professional football careers due to concussion risks. Chad Diehl, a former Clemson fullback who signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent following the draft, retired on May 16. According to the Spartanburg Herald Journal, Diehl wrote on his Facebook page that he suffered another concussion in rookie mini-camp. “The doctor and I came into agreement that it would be in my best interest for my football career to go ahead and come to an end,” Diehl added. Eight-year NFL veteran guard Jacob Bell made the same decision earlier this month. Bell, who had signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as a free agent, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his decision “came down to risk and reward.” Like Sweat and Diehl, Bell decided that the risk of long-term brain damage from concussion was not worth the reward of playing professional football. Gubanich said it is important for football players and other athletes in collision contact sports to understand the risks of their sport. “I wish (Sweat) the best,” Gubanich said. “I feel bad for these athletes … obviously some of them do know the risk, and I think our job is to help get the message out there and to try and help manage these situations to the best that we can, but there’s still a lot of awareness and education that needs to be done at multiple levels.”
MinerAndina reports that Funsur, the country’s sole tin smelter and refinery, owned by the – likewise – sole local tin producer, Minsur, has temporarily suspended operations following the earthquake on August 15 across the shores of Pisco, 200 km south of Lima. In addition, Aceros Arequipa, also located in the Province of Pisco, stopped operations for two days due to the failure of the electricity supply.MinerAndina also reports the recently commissioned Cerro Lindo copper-zinc-lead mine, part of the Milpo mining group, situated in the Province of Chincha, halted its operations for two days, due to blocked roads and the lack of electricity. Last Friday, the company announced the restart of its operations.Shougang Hierro Peru, an affiliate of China’s Shougang Group, operator of the Marcona iron ore mine, located in the Province of Nazca, south of Pisco, reported that its operations are going as usual at the mine and plant, “in spite of having suffered a slight power cut”.Other operations near the area directly affected by the quake, such as the Antapite mines, belonging to Cía. de Minas Buenaventura, and Doe Run Peru’s Cobriza, located in Huancavelica department, were operating as usual.Exploration projects such as Chariot Resources’ Mina Justa, situated in San Juan de Marcona (Nazca), and the Pinaya gold-copper project, undertaken by Acero-Martin, located in Arequipa, were not affected. Canadian company Century Mining, operating the San Juan gold mine, also in Arequipa, did not report any damage to its facilities either.Compañía de Minas Buenaventura also made it clear that the rest of its operations, including gold company Yanacocha, located in Cajamarca, had not suffered any damages. The same was the case of Barrick Gold with respect to its Pierina mine (Ancash) and Lagunas Norte mine (La Libertad). Pan American Silver announced that none of its mines had been significantly affected by the quake. Geoff Burns, Chairman and CEO, noted that as a matter of precaution, it was decided to temporarily suspend underground operations at Huarón and Morococha in order to verify the condition of rock structures and to make sure that safety conditions were adequate.For subscription information to MinerAndina,see www.minerandina.com
La captivité sauvera-t-elle le bécasseau spatule ?La semaine dernière, quelques bécasseaux spatules, oiseaux menacés d’extinction, venant de Russie, ont été placés dans un élevage du Gloucestershire, en Angleterre, pour un programme de reproduction en captivité, mené par une ONG britannique pour sauver l’espèce.Extrêmement menacé, le bécasseau spatule (Eurynorhynchus pygmeus) fait l’objet d’un programme de reproduction en captivité par le Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) britannique. C’est dans le cadre de ce projet que 13 de ces oiseaux originaires de la Russie extrême-orientale, ont été livrés vendredi à la réserve de Slimbridge, dans le Gloucestershire, au terme d’un voyage de 8.000 kilomètres.À lire aussiCette perruche imite à la perfection R2-D2, le robot de Star WarsTout d’abord, des œufs ont été soigneusement prélevés dans un périmètre de 100 miles carrés, sur les aires de nidification de la toundra de Tchoukotka (nord-est de la Russie). Ils ont alors été transférés vers un incubateur. Dès leur naissance, les minuscules poussins ont été nourris à la main, passant 60 jours en quarantaine au Zoo de Moscou. Pour Nigel Jarrett, chef de l’équipe du WWT qui a mené à bien toute l’opération, voir enfin ces oiseaux à Heathrow, apparemment sains et ayant atteint leur taille adulte, est une chose “fantastique”.Déjà chassés, les bécasseaux spatules voient de plus leurs sites cruciaux d’alimentation disparaître le long de leur route migratoire de 8.000 kilomètres entre la Russie et les aires d’hivernage du sud-est asiatique. Cet élevage représente donc un réel espoir pour la survie de l’espèce : il ne subsiste plus, en effet, qu’une centaine de couples sauvages dans la nature.Le 20 novembre 2011 à 14:48 • Maxime Lambert
Energies renouvelables : EDF ENR lance des ombrières solaires pour parkingsEDF ENR Solaire a annoncé, en début de semaine, le lancement de la commercialisation d’ombrières photovoltaïques. Fabriquées en France, elles sont destinées à être installées sur des parkings, où, tout en protégeant les véhicules du soleil, elles produiront de l’énergie.EDF ENR, filiale d’EDF dédiée aux énergies nouvelles, a annoncé lundi la commercialisation d’ombrières solaires ouvrant selon elle la voie à “une nouvelle génération de parkings durables”. De fabrication française, ces abris photovoltaïques permettront aux professionnels de protéger les voitures de leurs clients du soleil et des intempéries tout en produisant de l’énergie verte. À lire aussiLe plus grand “soleil artificiel” du monde vient de s’allumer en AllemagneCes ombrières, composées d’une charpente métallique ou en bois et de panneaux photovoltaïques d’une puissance installée allant de 32 à 99 kWc (kilowatt-crête), sont en outre conçues pour accueillir des véhicules électriques. Il est en effet “possible d’y installer des bornes de recharges” souligne EDF ENR. Un abri couvre une surface de 230m2 environ, soit douze à vingt places de parking. Il peut être accompagné d’un système de monitoring pour surveiller sa production. Le coût des installations, destinées aux parkings de la grande distribution, des concessions automobiles, des collectivités, des stations de véhicules électriques, de nettoyage à sec ou encore aux abris des transports en commun, n’est pas précisé. Mais le groupe affirme que “cet investissement éco-responsable s’autofinance grâce aux recettes annuelles issues de la production d’une énergie verte qui peut être revendue ou autoconsommée tout en réduisant ses émissions de CO2”. Selon EDF ENR, un tel projet peut être rentabilisé en dix à quatorze ans, en fonction de la région où il est réalisé. Le 27 avril 2012 à 16:00 • Maxime Lambert
Ed Lenderman, January 30, 2018 Ed Lenderman Posted: January 30, 2018 City Council approves acquisition of region’s first Housing Navigation Center Updated: 6:04 PM 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsSAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s push to create a universal entry point where homeless individuals can access supportive services to help them transition to permanent housing took a major step forward today with City Council approval of acquiring a downtown site for the region’s first Housing Navigation Center.The City Council’s decision clears the way for the Housing Navigation Center to open as earlier as this spring – the latest in a series of actions taken by City leaders to address the homeless crisis.The Housing Navigation Center will serve as a one-stop shop where homeless individuals can be connected to the most appropriate supportive services and housing solutions based on their specific circumstances. It will help people access the region’s Coordinated Entry System and serve as a hub for the core services that people need to get off of the streets, back on their feet and into permanent housing.“We’re taking decisive action to fix one of the biggest flaws in our regional care network: the lack of a universal starting point where those struggling with homelessness can go and get help,” Mayor Faulconer said. “The Housing Navigation Centers solves that problem by creating a one-stop shop for homeless services. This will advance our ‘Connect, Support, House’ strategy to reduce homelessness with a place where people can connect to our care network, get the support they need and receive help to find a home. This is how we will reduce homelessness in San Diego.”The Housing Navigation Center will be located in a three-story, 26,500-square-foot building at 1401 Imperial Avenue. This will be a place where individuals experiencing homelessness or those at risk of becoming homeless can access traditional benefits that are important to addressing issues affecting a person’s housing stability.“This navigation center is a critical step forward to provide a centralized hub for homeless individuals to connect with the services they need no matter what situation they find themselves in,” said City Councilmember Chris Ward. “I appreciate the support of my council colleagues to move ahead on this facility which will more effectively use our limited homeless resources to achieve better results on the streets, and I look forward to working alongside them to identify additional opportunities throughout the city to further expand the services we can provide.”The exact services available at the Housing Navigation Center will be determined by the operator once selected. However, it could be home or a satellite space for the following entities and services:• Homeless Services Providers• Social Security Office• County Health and Human Services• Veterans Affairs• Community Health Clinics• Homeless Outreach Ambassadors• Department of Motor Vehicles• Job Training and Career ServicesAn operator will be selected in March and the Housing Navigation Center is expected to be operational by this spring. The sale price for the property is $7 million. In addition, the City will be contributing $1.5 million annually for operations over the next five years.KUSI’s Ed Lenderman was there with more information.

“Even with the near-term challenges posed to print media by a more fragmented information environment and the economic headwinds facing all advertising media, newspaper publishers are continuing to drive strong revenue growth from their increasingly robust Web platforms,” John Sturm, president and CEO of the NAA, said in a statement.Total magazine rate-card-reported advertising revenue for consumermagazines grew 6.1 percent in 2007 when compared to 2006, according to year-end Publishers Information Bureau figures. But total ad pages—considered the more tellingstatistic, given the unaccounted rate card discounts doled out bypublishers—declined about a half a percent (-0.6) over the same period. Advertising revenue for newspapers fell 9.4 percent to $42 billion in 2007—the worst drop in more than 50 years—according to the figures released late last week by the Newspaper Association of America.It was the biggest decline since 2001, when ad revenue fell 9 percent.Total advertising revenue in 2007—including online revenue—decreased 7.9 percent. According to Editor & Publisher, there are signs that online revenue is beginning to slow. In 2007, Internet ad revenue increased 18.8 percent. In 2006, it online revenue grew 31.4 percent—the same increase Web advertising saw in 2005.
Babar, Pintu among 20 awarded death, Tarique jailed for life. Photo : Prothom AloAs many as 19 people, including former state minister for home affairs Lutfojjaman Babar and deputy minister Abdus Salam Pintu, have been sentenced to death while Tarique Rahman has been jailed for life for the grenade attack on an Awami League rally in the capital on 21 August in 2004.Judge Shahed Nuruddin of the Speedy Trial Tribunal-5 set up at Old Dhaka’s Nazimuddin Road central jail delivered the verdict on Wednesday.The speedy trial tribunal sentenced 18 others to life imprisonment in two cases while 11 people were awarded different jail terms.The deadly grenade attack aimed at killing Awami League president Sheikh Hasina at a rally of Awami League in Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital city took place during the regime of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party-led four-party alliance.Twenty-two people were killed in the attack, including Awam League’s secretary for women’s affairs Ivy Rahman. Three hundred people more, including Sheikh Hasina, who was then leader of the opposition at the time.At least 13 grenades were thrown from the rooftops of a nearby building soon after Sheikh Hasina had finished her speech at the rally.The two cases were filed in connection with the blasts—one under the Explosive Substances Act and the other for murdering.The BNP-led government then formed a one-member investigation committee comprising of High Court justice Jainul Abedin on 22 August 2004.Justice Jainul Abedin submitted his report after 40 days indicting that a powerful foreign intelligence agency had a hand in the incident. But, Awami League turned down the probe report.As the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) was later assigned to deal with the cases, they made a cooked-up story of Joj Mia and arrested him with 20 other people in connection with the incident in June 2005.Joj Mia was reportedly forced to give a statement confessing to his involvement in the attack. Later, there had been no progress in the investigation during the BNP-Jamaat rule.Fresh facts about the case were revealed during the caretaker government’s rule in 2007.Of the 491 witnesses in both the cases, the trial court has recorded the statements of 176 since the beginning of the trial in 2008.On 9 June 2008, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) pressed charges against BNP leader Abdus Salam Pintu, Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (Huji) chief Mufti Abdul Hannan and 20 others in the cases.In the meantime, Awami League came in power and formed the government in 2009 and submitted petitions on 3 August 2009 for further investigation into the cases.Following the pleas, the court ordered the CID for further investigation into the cases. Nearly two years of investigation, the CID on 3 July 2011 submitted supplementary charge sheets against 30 people, including BNP senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman, former state minister for home Lutfozzaman Babar, BNP leader Harris Chowdhury and Jamaat-e-Islami leader Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed.On 18 March 2012, the court framed charges against Tarique and others. The second trial commenced on the following month.The trial against 52 accused in the two cases was being held simultaneously with Dhaka’s Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 at the makeshift court at a building near the gate of Dhaka Central Jail.Intelligence source said of the 18 fugitive accused, Tarique Rahman is now in London while Harris Chowdhury in Assam of India, Shah Mofazzal Hossain Kaikobad in Bangkok, Mohammad Hanif, owner of Hanif Enterprise, in Kolkata, Maj Gen (retd) ATM Amin in the United States, Lt Col (retd) Saiful Islam Joarder in Canada, Babu alias Ratul Babu in India, Anisul Morsalin and his brother Mohibul Muttakin in an Indian jail.The then deputy commissioner (east) Md Obaidur Rahman, the then deputy commissioner (south) Khan Syed Hasan and militant leaders Shafiqur Rahman, Mufti Abdul Hai, Maulana Abu Bakar, Iqbal, Khalilur Rahman, Jahangir Alam alias Badar, Maulana Liton alias Zobair alias Delwar and Maulana Tajul Islam are also at large.Read More:19 sentenced to death for 21 Aug attack
Lindsay Lohan isn’t one to shy away from controversy and has been in trouble multiple times for driving under the influence offenses and subsequent misdemeanors and probation violations. The actress has also been in and out rehabilitation clinics over the past few years. Now she’s decided to sue Rockstar over Grand Theft Auto V.Lohan is claiming that Rockstar decided to design a character based on her and include it in GTA V without gaining permission. The character in question is called Lacey Jonas who’s tag line is “I’m really famous. I didn’t do anything.” In the game Jonas is an anorexic actress pursued by the paparazzi. She’s also referred to as Emacey Jonas by the press due to her state and comments about french fries making her fat. Her fans are obsessive, and she’s known as an “All-American romcom starlet.”Here’s the main GTA V mission involving Lacey Jonas. Please be aware this video contains language that’s not appropriate for everyone (or work):It’s a profile that you could say matches many a young actress, but Lohan has decided that it’s definitely her. The description sort of fits, but it’s probably how Lacey Jonas looks in the game that has Lohan convinced it is her. Either that or she’s found out just how much money GTA V has made Rockstar.Lohan’s lawyers claim that Jonas is an “unequivocal reference” to their client, including her image, voice, and even the style of her clothing line 6126. However, I find it hard to believe that without a clear reference to her name, her work, or her exact language in the game, that any judge would rule in favor of Lohan. Do you?

Nuance said the top 25 Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System customers are processing 86 percent of their transcription volume with speech recognition and are realizing productivity rates that are 98 percent above the industry average. Additionally, top performing MTs at Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System sites are producing 180 percent beyond industry standards, according to the company. The Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System Version 7.5 is designed for on-premise transcription, enterprise-wide, multi-specialty use and allows physicians to dictate in the traditional way, while speech recognition technology translates their dictation into a highly accurate, formatted draft document for transcriptionist review and edit. The company said this approach avoids the more time-consuming and costly process of transcribing reports from scratch.Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System 7.5 introduces an enhanced transcription software application that further improves MT productivity and makes the transition from typing to editing easy and fast. Additional updates include new support for Microsoft Office 2007, Windows Vista operating system and Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The new solution has been tested and qualified for use in a virtualized environment running VMware, to enable customers to more effectively deploy and support Nuance’s Dictaphone Enterprise Speech Systems within their IT infrastructure, said the company.

Go back to the e-newsletterThe Gstaad tourism slogan ‘Come Up – Slow Down’ is setting new standards for one of Switzerland’s most glamorous alpine destinations, encapsulating the essence of its appeal in one sentence. Set against the Alps, Gstaad is all about embracing visitors in peace and quiet, and in doing so, serves as a deliberate counterpoint to the general societal trend of achieving more in less time.Located in the Canton of Bern, Gstaad is a paradise for people who believe that enjoyment and wellbeing is more important than ticking off as many new attractions as possible, or as Julie Andrews said, the destination is the “last paradise in a crazy world”. The region is synonymous with a stylish and cultured attitude to life, whether guests seek relaxation away from the hectic pace of modern life with a touch of exclusivity, or holiday experiences in a landscape full of history and stories. Whether attracted by wellbeing, sport, cuisine or culture, young and old alike will find what they are looking for according to Gstaad’s philosophy: come up – slow down!Diversity in winterGstaad has a diverse range of winter offerings, including 220 kilometres of slopes and the only glacier ski area in the Bernese Oberland, sunny terraces of cosy mountain restaurants and slopeside bars. Skiing and snowboarding specialists can test themselves in a range of snow parks or in the extensive freeride and ski touring area. The village is also the gateway to one of the top cross-country ski areas in the Alps and is considered a tobogganing and winter biking paradise.Popular summer destinationApproximately half of all visitors travel to Gstaad in the warmer months. With 300 kilometres of walking tracks, accessible by up to nine mountain railways, countless bike touring and climbing opportunities as well as an idyllic 18-hole golf course, visitors have a world of leisure pursuits at their doorstep.A leading provider of wellnessGstaad has been awarded the ‘Wellness Destination’ quality seal by the Swiss Tourist Association, one of the leading providers in the area of beauty and wellness. Seven leading hotels spoil their guests with holistic spa offerings, while 10 other businesses offer their own wellness infrastructure and Alpine applications, such as barefoot walks, hay baths and whey baths.Alpine ‘capital’ of major eventsWith just 12,000 residents, Gstaad has an offering of cultural and sporting events which would be disproportionate even for urban regions. Every year, guests can choose from more than 1000 different events. Some of these events have a top international format, such as the Menuhin Festival, the J. Safra Sarasin Swiss Open ATP tennis tournament, the WTA Ladies Championship, the Swatch Beach Volleyball Major Series tournament, the Snow Bike Festival or the Hublot Polo Gold Cup – to name but a few.Go back to the e-newsletter
