Oilpatch wants growth policies from Alberta politicians carbon price absent

first_imgCALGARY — The energy industry has revealed what it wants to see from Alberta politicians as they gear up for a spring election.The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers says politicians should enact policies that will double the industry’s growth rate by 2020.It wants tax cuts, shorter regulatory times and government support for six new energy pipelines.There is no mention of a price on carbon or a cap on oilsands emissions, both of which were brought in by Alberta’s current NDP government.Association president Tim McMillan says the International Energy Agency predicts oil and gas demand is on track to grow and he believes Canada’s well-regulated oilpatch should be filling those markets.The agency also forecasts a three-degree rise in global temperatures by 2040 — well past the threshold at which scientists say dangerous climate change impacts will occur.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Angry Passengers Stop Train in Rabat Protest Morning Delay

Rabat – Protesting against repeated morning delays, passengers stopped a train on Monday morning in Agdal railway station.Eyewitnesses told Morocco World News that a train linking Casablanca, Rabat and Kenitra, stopped in the railway station of Agdal, Rabat around 7:20 a.m. due to a technical failure.“There was a delay of up to three hours. ONCF officials asked us through the audio system to wait, saying that the train will stop for only 30 minutes,” Oumaima, one of the passengers told MWN.“After two hours, the train did not resume its service, which caused passengers to start venting their anger,” she added. The technical problem has caused inconvenience to passengers who stood on the tracks in protest against excessive delays in the arrival of trains.The Moroccan National Railways Office, ONCF has issued a statement in the aftermath of the protest, saying that passengers “are also held responsible for the delay since they prevented the train from leaving the station after the problem was fixed.” According to the same source, the train did not leave Agdal station until 9:30 a.m.A similar incident has been reported in the train station of Kenitra this morning. Multiple local media reports said the train, which was scheduled to leave the station this morning at 8:19, hasn’t arrived yet as of this writing. read more

BlackBerry users hit with first service outage since BB10 launch

TORONTO — Some BlackBerry users were hit with yet another a service outage Friday morning.The company said its technical teams addressed the problem and services were returning to normal levels.However, BlackBerry did not say how widespread the problem was or how many users were affected, and a representative for the company did not return calls to confirm any details.“We apologize to customers for any inconvenience,” the company said in an emailed statement.“We take all service issues — no matter how small — very seriously and through constant monitoring and investigation we aim to ensure our network meets customer expectations.”The outage was the first for the company since it launched its new BlackBerry 10 smartphones earlier this year.It came a day after BlackBerry received approval from the U.S. Defence Department for the use of its new devices on its networks.The company launched its long-awaited Z10 touchscreen at the end of January, while the Q10 version with a physical keyboard went on sale in Canada this week.Shares of the company closed down six cents to $15.77 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.The Canadian Press read more

UN rights office deeply deplores latest Boko Haram attack in Nigeria

Speaking at a press briefing in Geneva earlier today, Ravina Shamdasani, spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), said the UN agency deeply deplored “the vicious, ruthless attacks against civilians” in and around the Nigerian town of Baga, in Borno State, where Boko Haram has reportedly been operating since 3 January.“The deliberate targeting of civilians is clearly prohibited by international law and we are very concerned at reports that there were children and elderly people among the victims,” the OHCHR spokesperson told reporters.According to the initial “shocking” accounts, she continued, were reports that girls, possibly one as young as 10, were also forced to carry out attacks at marketplaces in nearby Maidugiri, also in Borno State, and in Potiskum, in Yobe State. Ms. Shamdasani emphasized that the use of a child to detonate a bomb was “not only morally repugnant but constitutes an egregious form of child exploitation under international law.”Just last week, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) reported that the number of Nigerian refugees seeking safety in Chad due to the precipitating security situation had almost quadrupled over the past 10 days after attacks by Boko Haram uprooted about 7,300 Nigerians. Most of the refugees, the agency added, were forced into western Chad, where many are now staying with local communities in villages around 450 kilometres north-west of the capital, N’Djamena.Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said the 3 January attack on the town of Baga alone caused 3,400 people to flee to Chad.In her briefing, Ms. Shamdasani said OHCHR urged the Nigerian Government to act swiftly to restore law and order in the area while also ensuring that security operations are conducted in line with international law and full respect for human rights.“We also urge Nigerian authorities to redouble their efforts to create conditions for an effective investigation into the incidents, with a view to establishing the facts surrounding the killings and holding the perpetrators accountable.” read more

Parents of Matilda star Were prepared to go to jail in home

first_imgThe parents of a child actress who starred as Matilda in the award-winning musical have warned they are prepared to go to jail in an escalating row over her home schooling.Edward Hardy and his wife Eileen Tracy have been ordered by their local council to send their 12-year-old daughter Lilian to school by March 7 – or else face prosecution.Mr Hardy and Ms Tracy are refusing to comply with Westminster Council’s ultimatum and have vowed to go to jail if needs be. If convicted the couple would be liable for a fine, but they would refuse to pay it as a point of principle and are ready to go to prison to stand up for the right to home school Lilian.Writing in the Telegraph, Ms Tracy, 50, says: “We have no intention whatsoever of complying with Westminster’s order. We are exercising our rights under the law to ask them to rescind it, and we will appeal to the Secretary of State if they refuse. “If that fails, we would oppose the council in court – and if necessary, though it doesn’t bear thinking about, we would go to jail.”Mr Hardy, 51, who works full-time in a primary school in London, said: “We would both be prepared to go to jail. However absurd a situation that appears to be.” Ms Tracy writes: “But Lilian’s success seems not to be enough for our local authority, Westminster City Council. Shortly after it issued her performing licence, which put her on their radar, it requested to meet her. We declined this unwarranted inspection, offering instead a range of samples of her work and activities which we felt spoke for themselves. The Department of Education’s guidelines for local authorities ask councils not to ascertain the suitability of the child’s work or routinely inspect, so this should have been enough.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “Westminster responded that it operates its own policy, and demanded we either permit an inspection or provide some endorsement by an educator who knows the child. Now the council has ordered us to send Lilian to school by March 7; if we do not, we could be prosecuted, convicted and fined.”Ms Tracy goes on: “Perhaps we could end this easily by letting a qualified tutor sign off on her work. But there is a crucial principle at stake. Right now, home education is under sustained attack. The magnificent work of parents who dedicate their lives to their children is being maligned with insinuations of neglect and abuse.”A Westminster Council spokesman: “The council respect the rights of parents to home educate and are committed to supporting parents who make that choice. Local authorities had a statutory obligation to ensure that resident children receive a suitable education.“In Westminster, the majority of families meet with the home education adviser to discuss their education. Alternatively, parents have the option to provide endorsements from an education professional involved in the delivery of child’s education.“We have explained to Mr Hardy and Ms Tracy that we cannot solely rely on samples of their child’s work to form a view about the suitability of their education.” In her Telegraph article, Ms Tracy, 50, explained how Westminster Council has been demanding that the family meets with a home education adviser or else submits to “endorsement by an educator” who knows Lilian. The couple have refused the council’s requests and instead sent the local authority examples of Lilian’s work. Ms Tracy, author of The Student’s Guide to exam Success, point out that ‘vindication’ of their home schooling methods is clear from Lilian’s success in auditioning and winning the lead role in Matilda. She spent three months in rehearsal and performed in the musical for six months until her run came to an end in September.The girl’s situation only came to the attention of Westminster Council when the Royal Shakespeare Company, which produces the West End show, applied for a child performance licence so that Lilian could join the cast.last_img read more

Letter Budget 2018 fails to address fundamental issues of wealth generation

Dear Editor,Budget 2018, like other budgets presented by the APNU/AFC Government, lacks economic perspicacity and wit. The main findings are:* Low economic growth: Had our key sectors performed similar to 2014, the economy would have grown by 6.1%, rather than a mere 2.8%.* Erroneous forecast: a year ago, the Hon. Minister stated that a balance of payment surplus of US$20 million would be materialized by the end of 2017. Now, in Budget Speech 2018, that figure has mutated into a US$53.1 million deficit.* Loss of revenues: Export has shrunk by more than US$76.6 million, or Gy$15.4 billion, since 2015. This loss gets even bigger at US$146 million, or Gy$30 billion, when compared to 2014. Even more worrisome, using the conservative estimates of the Hon. Minister for 2018, projected foreign exchange from the export of sugar and rice is expected to further decline by US$5.8 million and US$17.5 million respectively. Had the APNU/AFC not tried to reinvent the wheel, public servants could today have enjoyed a 173% increase in salary with the amount of lost revenue.* Nothing for rice farmers: Rice is expected to contract by some US$18 million, or Gy$3.7 billion in 2018. The question now is: should rice farmers expect less for a bag of paddy in 2018, or is it that the rice deal with Cuba is only for a selected few?* More tax in 2018: The newly proposed countrywide valuation exercise of properties will rake in billions. The last valuation was done some 20 years ago. Given the massive infrastructural development under the PPP, property value since then has skyrocketed.* Less money for the people: From 2014 to 2017, overall tax has increased by more than 5%. The increase has slashed private consumption from $522 billion in 2014 to $490 billion in 2017. What this tells us is that purchasing power of the people has plummeted by more than 6.1%, or $32 billion. Evidence of this can be seen in the reduction in import of vehicles by $1.5 billion when compared to 2016.* Wastage of taxpayers’ money: On average, it cost the PPP/C Government $1.3 million in recurrent expenditure to execute $1 million in capital projects. Now, in 2017, this Government is spending $3.3 million, or 66% more, to execute the same $1 million in capital projects.* More job loss: Investment in agriculture, mining and quarrying, and manufacturing have all plummeted by more than $4.4 billion. Overall, private investment fell from $185 billion in 2015 to $163 billion in 2017.* Less money for private investment: Starting from 2015, total budget deficit increased from $9.3 billion to $34.5 billion in 2017, and is expected to increase even further by another $8.7 billion to $43 billion in 2018. And in 2018, this figure is expected to increase to $34 billion. This means there is less money for private investment.* Higher exchange rates: In 2012, some 22% of domestic credit was used to finance investments in Guyana. Fast forward to 2017, under this new administration, that percentage skyrocketed to 78%. Clearly, FDI is in a tailspin. Shortage of foreign resource inflows will put downward pressure on our exchange rate.* High food prices: Prices for food, medical and personal cares, and education, recreation and cultural services will increase by 4.5%, 3.4% and 3.6% respectively by end 2017.When assessed, Budget 2018 is nothing but a chimera that fails to address fundamental issues of wealth generation and expansion. This budget is again out of touch with reality, and certainly will continue to weaken the macroeconomic foundation, and undermine all social gains that the PPP/C Government took 23 years to build and amass.Sincerely,Cecil Williams Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedAFC reports mismanagement in Guyana’s economy; questions decline in ReservesJanuary 29, 2015In “Politics”Guyana’s economy eroding at alarmingly fast rateAugust 13, 2017In “Local News”2018 Budget should focus on growth, development & welfare of the people- OppositionNovember 22, 2017In “latest news” read more

ALM Launches Free Digital Membership Program

first_img“We’d just seen that our audience had been changing in how they consume media,” Izzo says. “A big part of the change for us was the significant adoption of mobile and the engagement on social media.”Izzo says ALM made a big effort to transform into a digital-first company as a result. Another factor that contributed to the program’s creation was the significant increase in traffic on ALM websites from mobile devices, an increase of around 80 percent July over July from last year, according to Izzo.“Digital membership establishes a simple way for us to serve today’s subscribers and future subscribers with the online news content they want, when and where they want it,” says Jeffrey S. Litvack, chief digital officer at ALM in a statement.The free membership package includes digital access to five news articles every month from three controlled circulation publications, online access to news alerts, newsletters and previously archived news stories, and discounts on ALM products and services.“Subscribers will now have an easier way to click through to the content they want to read and non-subscribers will have a viable option for continuing to read by viewing five free stories a month,” Litvack contends.UPDATE: This movement of content from behind the paywall to the forefront with free access is a key advantage for subscribers, says Izzo.“The benefit to paid members is the ability to share the content to colleagues and potential clients,” Izzo says. “This ability to pass on a story to a colleague digitally makes that sharing process, either from social media or from your inbox newsletter, easier.”Digital membership holders have free and unlimited online access to three controlled circulation publications: Corporate Counsel, Law Technology News and The Asian Lawyer. ALM maintains that their four paid premium publications—Supreme Court Brief, Litigation Daily, New Jersey Law Journal Decision Alert and Delaware Business Court Insider—will continue to be accessible only to each publication’s subscribers. Paid subscribers will also maintain exclusive access to premium reports and briefings, including the Am Law 100 report.UPDATE: The decision to only allow five free news articles per monthly cycle was a strategic move on ALM’s part.“We want non-paid subscribers to test, trial, read and consume at least five articles a month across the network,” Izzo contends. “We felt that five was reflective of the engagement level of our readers on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.”More on this topic ALM Forms New Marketing Services Team InsideCounsel Folds Print Edition People on the Move | 5.17.12 ALM Newsletter Open Rates Jump 60 Percent After Mobile Optimization ALM Expands Regional Publishing Services Jeffrey LitvackJust In Meredith Corp.

Suspended HISD Chief Auditor Back To Work

first_img Share The chief auditor for the Houston Independent School District has been ordered back to work, five months after he was abruptly suspended. In March, HISD informed Richard Patton that he was being suspended and reassigned to home duty for alleged “misconduct and other performance concerns.”HISD never gave an example or further explained his suspension.It came months after Patton questioned the district’s administration of its school construction projects and a massive budget shortfall of more than $200 million.Patton later filed a whistle-blower grievance, claiming he was retaliated against because he reported suspicious activity to law enforcement officers.Now HISD says in a statement that it “has resolved the issues related to his temporary reassignment.” He’s been directed back to duty as chief auditor, effective Wednesday.last_img read more

The attacks also raise concerns for the country’s key tourism industry, just as it was beginning to recover from years of tumult following a 2011 popular uprising.
