Oil industry to return to profitability this year after three years of

first_imgCALGARY – Canada’s oil industry is expected to be back in the black this year thanks to higher oil prices and more production after registering three years of losses.But the Conference Board of Canada says the recovery will be modest and ongoing pipeline capacity problems will likely continue to result in Western Canada’s oil production selling for discount prices.Michael Burt, director of industrial economic trends, says the oil industry will register pre-tax profits of about $1.4 billion this year after a string of losses since prices crashed in 2014.He says the profits are partly the result of efficiencies in the use of labour that are expected to continue to limit hiring. The industry is expected to create just 2,150 new jobs over the next five years.Total crude production in Canada is forecast to rise by an average annual rate of 3.4 per cent between 2018 and 2022, with most of it coming from the Alberta oilsands.Industry revenues are forecast to increase by about eight per cent in 2018.last_img read more

UN agency chief renews call for release of jailed journalist in Myanmar

“It’s a sad anniversary of the one that marks the arrest, 18 years ago, of this figure of Burmese journalism,” said Koïchiro Matsuura, Director-General of UNESCO, which awarded the Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize to the journalist in 2001.“U Win Tin is today an old man and his state of health has deteriorated,” said Mr. Matsuura, repeating his call for the Burmese authorities “to show compassion and free him.”A former editor of the daily newspaper Hanthawati, U Win Tin was vice-chair of the Myanmar Writers’ Association before he was arrested in July 1989 and accused of belonging to the banned Communist Party of the country. He was sentenced to 14 years jail. In 1996 he received an additional sentence of five years for breaking prison regulations prohibiting the possession of writing materials. According to the International Freedom of Expression exchange, representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross have not been able to visit U Win Tin or other Burmese prisoners since the start of 2006. UNESCO is the only UN agency with a mandate to defend freedom of expression and press freedom, and Mr. Matsuura has issued frequent condemnations of the murder and detention of journalists around the world in recent months. 6 July 2007The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today renewed his call to the Government of Myanmar to release U Win Tin, the prize-winning journalist who has been in jail since 1989. read more

First UN human rights office in European Union opens in Brussels

14 October 2009The first United Nations human rights office in the European Union opened today in Brussels, marking what the world body’s top rights official hopes will be a new era of cooperation with countries in the region. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is headquartered in Geneva but has never before opened a national or regional office in Western Europe. “We already have 10 other regional offices in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia, and we are now present in 55 countries around the world in all. Europe was in many ways the missing piece in the puzzle,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said as she opened the new office at the EU’s headquarters in Brussels. The main aim of the new Regional Office, she said, will be to strengthen engagement with European countries in the implementation of international human rights standards as well as to forge stronger partnerships with regional organizations such as the EU and its relevant institutions. The office would also work with the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. “The EU is, of course, already an important partner for us, both as a donor and as a strong moral voice on many human rights problems facing people all over the world,” said Ms. Pillay. “When the EU speaks, people listen. When the UN speaks on human rights issues, people also listen, and when we are in tune we can be an important force for change.” The High Commissioner noted that EU countries themselves face a number of human rights challenges. “This office will help EU countries in their efforts to combat racism and discrimination, and to tackle human rights violations related to migration and poverty, as well as deficits in other economic and social rights, particularly for minorities such as the Roma,” she said. “A particular challenge in recent years has been ensuring that counter-terrorism measures do not undermine human rights standards.” While in Brussels Ms. Pillay also took part in a joint OHCHR-EU conference on combating all forms of discrimination – with a particular focus on discrimination based on race, gender and disabilities – and met with Belgian and EU officials. read more

Nokia in thirdquarter loss of 125 million with sales plunge but high

by Matti Huuhtanen, The Associated Press Posted Oct 29, 2013 5:28 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Nokia in third-quarter loss of $125 million with sales plunge but high hopes in networks unit HELSINKI – Nokia reported Tuesday a third-quarter loss as sales at the handsets unit it is selling to Microsoft continued to plunge. But the company gave a positive outlook on continuing operations, including the networks unit, causing the share price to surge.Third-quarter net loss of 91 million euros ($125 million) compared with a net loss of 969 million euros a year earlier, while revenue fell more than 20 per cent to 5.6 billion euros.But the struggling company said its network operations saw net profit grow 33 per cent and was expected to have a positive operating margin of up to 12 per cent in the last quarter, with “solid net sales growth on a sequential basis.”Nokia’s share price closed up 7 per cent higher at 5.34 euros in Helsinki.The Finnish company sold 8.8 million smartphones in the period — all Lumia products — up 40 per cent from a year earlier. In the third quarter last year it sold 6.3 million smartphones of which less than 3 million were Lumias. Demand rose strongly in the U.S., traditionally one of its tougher markets.But that was not enough to keep Nokia Corp. from giving a negative outlook for the devices and services unit it has agreed to sell to Microsoft Corp. for $7.2 billion, which will be shown as discontinued operations in the fourth quarter.The company was more upbeat about its remaining operations: Nokia Solutions and Networks, or NSN; HERE mapping services and the Advanced Technologies unit.CFO Timo Ihamuotila said it will be in better shape without the devices and services unit, which saw net sales fall by 19 per cent in the quarter to 2.9 billion euros, selling only 64.6 million devices, down from 83 million a year earlier.“Nokia’s earnings profile and financial position are expected to strengthen significantly,” Ihamuotila told analysts during a conference call, saying the company will invest in growth in both mapping and location services.Although Nokia retained its no.2 position in mobile phone sales overall with a 15.5 per cent global share, that was mainly thanks to its line of older, non-smartphones that still sell in some emerging markets.In smartphones, Nokia did not fare well.At less than 9 million units, its sales lag well behind Samsung’s 88 million and Apple’s 33.8 million. Even South Korean LG, with 12.7 million units, and China’s Lenovo, which sold 11 million, surged past the former world No. 1 that once commanded a global smartphone market share of 50 per cent.Neil Mawston from Strategy Analytics near London said Nokia’s remaining operations looked promising.The networks figures were “reasonably good” and would be a short term boost for the company, he said, while the HERE mapping services — commanding more than 80 per cent market share in the automobile trade — could be a longer lasting boon.“HERE has some decent prospects, and we see it as being the long term profit driver,” Mawston said. “Nokia has a huge market share in maps worldwide and maps are core to a lot of the automotive and shopping experiences out there worldwide.”Mawston said he was also “relatively optimistic” about Nokia’s Lumia range.“All the arrows are pointing in the right direction,” he said. “Nokia-Lumia still has a long way to go but at least they are headed in the right direction after going in the wrong direction for so long.”Nokia board chairman and interim CEO Risto Siilasmaa described the third quarter as “the most transformative” in the company’s history.The company repeated its target to save 3 billion euros in operating costs by the end of 2013. Nokia employed 87,000 people at the end of the period, down from more than 105,000 a year earlier. read more

Sizing up the federal deficit experts ponder how deep Ottawa should go

by Andy Blatchford, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 16, 2016 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Mar 16, 2016 at 9:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Sizing up the federal deficit: experts ponder how deep Ottawa should go OTTAWA – It’s become the multibillion-dollar question — how big, exactly, will the federal deficit be?Analysts have made predictions leading up to next Tuesday’s spring budget on the magnitude of Ottawa’s shortfall, which is already poised to reach tens of billions.The Liberal government has acknowledged the deficit could rise above $20 billion as it fulfills election vows and introduces economy-boosting measures, such as infrastructure spending.The government has kept mum on the final figure, but many experts anticipate Ottawa will be $30 billion in the hole in 2016-17 — at least.Some have even recommended how large — or small — the government should allow the deficit to grow in its budgetary blueprint.The C.D. Howe Institute is the latest to weigh in with the release today of its annual “shadow” budget, a document that urges the Liberals to show some spending restraint.The think-tank suggests a fiscal approach that will produce deficits of $15.3 billion and $12.2 billion over the next two fiscal years — levels significantly lower than other observers.On the other end of the spectrum, a couple of big banks and the left-leaning Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives have recommended the government inject even more fiscal stimulus, which will create a deficit as high as $40 billion in 2016-17.TD Bank, meanwhile, has said the federal government is on track to run $150 billion in budget deficits over the next five years.The projections come as the government prepares its maiden budget at a time when the economy is struggling with the negative consequences of low commodity prices, particularly oil.The country’s economic situation darkened in the months that followed the October election, which prompted Finance Minister Bill Morneau to take the rare step last month of releasing a fiscal update only weeks before the budget.The document revealed the treasury was projected to produce a shortfall of at least $18.4 billion in 2016-17, a projection that didn’t account for roughly $10 billion in Liberal spending commitments.The updated numbers also predicted a $15.5-billion deficit in 2017-18.The projections also included an additional $6 billion per year for economic prudence that the government argued was necessary to account for risk.In November, shortly after they were elected, the Liberals predicted shortfalls of $3.9 billion in 2016-17 and $2.4 billion in 2017-18.The Liberals made a counter-intuitive promise during the election campaign when they vowed to run deficits over the next three years in order to pay for infrastructure projects to stimulate the weak economy.They had pledged to cap annual shortfalls at $10 billion over that span, a vow they are now poised to break. The Liberals have also backed away from their campaign promise to balance the books in four years.In releasing the grimmer numbers last month, Morneau insisted the government’s starting point was “much further back” than the Liberals thought.He has come under attack by Conservative opponents for breaking election promises and for planning to drive Canadians deeper into debt.Morneau, however, has repeatedly maintained that spending is necessary to revive economic growth and create jobs.The C.D. Howe Institute argues in today’s report that the Liberals can support economic growth and still return to a balanced budget by 2019-20.“Ottawa must temper the sense created by the election campaign and early post-election announcements that there are no limits to what the federal government can spend and borrow,” reads the document, which includes calculations that cut the government’s annual economic prudence of $6 billion in half.Last week, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives released its “alternative” budget that called for major investments in infrastructure as well as support for social programs and low-income households.The group propose generating additional government revenues by closing tax loopholes for the wealthy, raising corporate taxes, introducing a national carbon tax and ending subsidies for the energy industry.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter read more

Digital radio interim report reflects industry concerns

Earlier this year, SMMT set up an ad hoc Digital Radio Working Group (DRWG) to discuss the implications for the automotive sector of broadcasters switching radio transmission from analogue to digital. The group was established at short notice and comprises representatives from vehicle manufacturers, audio suppliers and associated aftermarket personnel. Broadcasters had intimated there would be a cut off date when analogue radio was totally switched off, in favour of digital. There is still work to be done, notably in conjunction with independent regulator Ofcom, with regard to field strengths required to give good reception in vehicles and other areas identified in the interim report – which can be viewed by clicking here. SMMT will continue to monitor the situation and offer guidance to the DCMS WG wherever possible. Once completed, a final report will be issued to the secretary of state in November or December.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Although undoubtedly successful in domestic homes, digital radio for mobile vehicles has its own set of challenges and the group rapidly pooled its collective knowledge to form a response to a call for evidence made by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). DCMS set up its own working group (WG) in November last year and SMMT welcomed the opportunity for the automotive sector to be involved. Yesterday, an interim report was issued by the DCMS WG which accurately summarises the points developed and raised by SMMT. Importantly, it does not recommend setting a date for switchover to digital radio now – rather it recommends a timetable for migration, dependent on progress against agreed criteria. read more

Kotak Bank denial of Warren Buffett firm talks rocks shares

first_imgA clarification by Kotak Mahindra Bank denying talks with Berkshire Hathaway on a 10 per cent stake sales to Warren Buffet’s firm buffeted the shares on Friday.The private bank’s shares that opened trading at Rs1,181 on NSE and dipped to an intraday low of Rs 1,176 soared 13.87 per cent following a media report about the Berkshire Hathaway talks.After the bank informed the bourses that there were no such talks the shares shed part of the gains from its intraday high Rs 1,345.35 to close at Rs 1,284 or 8.84 per cent higher, according to market reports. The share was still far from the 52-week high of Rs 1,417 that it achieved on July 16 this year.”We confirm that we have nothing to report to the exchanges on the said item. Kotak Mahindra Bank is unaware of any plans by Berkshire Hathaway to buy a stake in the bank as stated in the story,” the bank said in a notice to the BSE.NSE’s sectoral index Nifty Bank that opened the day on 26,307.40 soared to 26,659.70 on the strength mainly of Kotak bank movement before closing at 26,594.30.The rumours of the talks floated after reports emerged that the RBI had mandated Kotak Bank to reduce its promoter shareholding to 20 per cent of its paid-up capital by December 31, and 15 per cent by March 31, 2020.Uday Kotak, vice chairman and managing director of Kotak Mahindra Bank, has a 30.03 per cent stake.The tumult over Kotak Bank shares occurred days after rival lender Yes Bank accused it of allegedly instigating negative media. Yes Bank targeted financial newspaper Business Standard owned by Uday Kotak, who is also the principal shareholder of Kotak Mahindra Bank. Yes Bank included its letter to the newspaper in a filing with the stock exchanges.There were reports that the RBI rejected the bank’s proposal in August to issue non-convertible preference shares to cut the promoter holding. It had talked of a plan to raise Rs 500 crore through non-convertible perpetual non-cumulative preference shares in its attempt to dilute the promoter shareholding.Kotak Bank shares have been on investors’ crosshairs since October following RBI strictures on Bandhan Bank for failing to meet promoter shareholding norms. The central bank barred Bandhan Bank from opening more branches without approval and also ordered the freezing of CEO Chandra Shekhar Ghosh’s salary.last_img read more

SubFreezing Temperatures Intensify Homeless Outreach

Captain Bill Staney is commander of the Houston Police Department’s Mental Health Division.“We’ve got areas along the downtown bayous and we’ve got several encampments that we have downtown. We’ve got a lot of people and we’ve offered them all a place, but we don’t get a lot of people who want to come out of those encampments right now. We keep trying.”Captain Staney says there are about ten shelters, and some downtown churches are being used as warming centers. Homeless outreach teams continue their efforts, although some remote areas are harder to reach after dark. Citizens can call 311 for assistance.“And MetroLift can come out and provide transportation, particularly those that they may be wheelchair-bound, that sort of thing. Plus patrol will be out throughout the night. So there’s lots of mechanisms to get people who want to go into a shelter.”Overnight hard freezes and sub-freezing mornings in the Houston area are expected to continue until the weekend. 00:00 /01:03last_img read more

Never Pop a Zit With Woodcarving Tools

first_img(Credit: Shutterstock)Let’s preface this whole story with a disclaimer: It’s never really a good idea to pop a pimple. But, if you must, absolutely do not use a dirty woodworking blade.How do we know? Because a 23-year-old man from Chicago did exactly that, and paid a gruesome price.According to a case report published in The Journal of Emergency Medicine, doctors at the John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County treated a construction worker who came to them with a crusty, bloody, bulbous, warty lesion below his lower lip (image here, but not for the faint of heart). The wound had developed over several months after the man said he had “snipped a pimple” with a woodworking blade.The man didn’t recall experiencing fever, chills, weight loss and hadn’t traveled to any far-flung places recently. So doctors performed a skin biopsy and discovered a rare budding yeast form growing in the wound. Further analysis revealed that it was Blastomyces conidia, a fungus that thrives in soil and wet, decaying wood. The fungus is endemic to parts of eastern North America, and along the western bank of Lake Michigan and most of Wisconsin. It’s also sometimes found in Africa, the Saharan Desert and Saudi Arabia.Blastomyces causes a nasty disease, blastomycosis, which causes lesions to form in the skin, internal organs and nervous system. Infections are rare, but they are usually caused when humans and animals breathe spores into the lungs, where the disease will then cause mild, flu-like symptoms. In this case, doctors believe the spores entered the man’s skin when he used a dirty woodcarving blade for cosmetic work.Fortunately, the man was treated with anti-fungal medication and the nasty infection cleared up within a couple of weeks.When it comes to clearing blemishes, it doesn’t pay to get creative. You can never go wrong with salicylic acid and a little patience.(h/t ArsTechnica)last_img read more
