Calgary Canada Post workers might not strike for long

first_imgCALGARY (660 NEWS) – Even though rolling strikes are hitting Calgary, Red Deer, and Sherbrooke, Quebec, the work stoppage might not last long for Canada Post employees.“With a mediator there, I’m hoping that he’ll be able to have the issues resolved.”Anna Beale, the Executive VP of the Calgary Local for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) says ideally the strike could be settled by Thursday afternoon.Workers first hit the picket line Wednesday night in the three cities, and continued Thursday at 6 a.m., and will remain on strike for 24 hours unless the matter can be resolved.Despite the optimism, there is still a lot on the table, with CUPW demanding Canada Post address their concerns over health and safety, long hours, and lack of pay for rural mail carriers.Strikes happened for two days in Toronto, which crippled their main distribution centre.Beale knows customers might be frustrated.“The public has stood behind Canada post for over 150 years, and we are there for the Canadian public as well, because it’s the Canadian public that enables us to have jobs at Canada Post.”Negotiations have gone on for 10 months now.The federal government appointed the mediator on Wednesday.last_img read more

BC premier denies crisis says one investment doesnt make an economy

first_imgKinder Morgan announced Sunday it was stopping all non-essential spending on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, saying opposition from the B.C. government puts the project at risk. It has set a deadline of May 31 for talks with various stakeholders to reach an agreement that could allow the project to proceed.“All of a sudden when the shareholders in Texas issue a press release there’s a constitutional crisis,” Horgan said.The government announced in February that it will ask the court to decided if it has the right to protect its environment by restricting diluted bitumen in the Trans Mountain pipeline. The decisions to refer the matter to the courts prompted Alberta to suspend a ban on wine imports from B.C.“What we’re talking about here is the province of B.C. going to court to assert our jurisdiction and protect the interests of British Columbians,” Horgan told the legislature. “We said in an election campaign a year ago this is what we would do.”He said B.C. is in court to defend its coast and its interests from a project that will triple bitumen shipments from Alberta to Burnaby and increase tanker traffic seven-fold in B.C. waters.Horgan said he spoke with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley on Sunday and told both leaders to build more oil refineries instead of pipelines. VICTORIA, B.C. — British Columbia Premier John Horgan showed no signs Monday of backing down on the battle over the Kinder Morgan pipeline, rejecting widespread claims his government’s challenge of the $7.4 billion project is hurting the economy and tearing apart the country.His tone ran from calm to exasperated during a 30-minute question period in the legislature where the Opposition Liberals accused his government of hurting investor confidence, ignoring the rule of law and picking an unwinnable fight with Alberta and the federal government.“One investment project does not an economy make,” said Horgan, adding B.C. has the lowest jobless rate in Canada and a solid credit rating. “The premier stands alone in his opinions,” he told the legislature. “Is this burgeoning fiasco his definition of success?”Wilkinson urged Horgan to meet with the prime minister to resolve the dispute and ensure certainty for the federally-approved project.Greg D’Avignon, president of the B.C. Business Council, said the government’s decision to prolong the process threatens the credibility of the country’s regulatory and project approval systems.British Columbia’s Chamber of Commerce said the implications of the decision by Kinder Morgan are “seismic,” and if this project can’t be built it will show the world that government approvals count for nothing.Opposition to the pipeline has ramped up in recent weeks, with several dozen people arrested near the Burnaby marine terminal in the last month.Trudeau said last week in Victoria the pipeline will be built.By Dirk MeissnerTHE CANADIAN PRESScenter_img “That would be leadership,” he said.Notley said Monday she told Horgan in a telephone call that B.C.’s opposition to the pipeline threatens the rule of law in Canada and she made it clear her province will retaliate.Notley said she will introduce legislation this week to give Alberta the power to reduce oil flows to B.C., which could send gas prices in the province soaring.Opposition Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson said Horgan’s reckless pipeline battle ignores the law, creates uncertainty and tears at the fabric of the nation.last_img read more

Debt burden and BRI

first_imgChinese President Xi Jinping will have to hard sell BRI (Belt and Road Initiative) in the 2nd Forum, concluding today in Beijing. BRI envisages massive investment in infrastructure, encompassing marine, rail and road projects across 65 countries from Asian to Europe and Africa, that collectively account for 30 per cent of global GDP. BRI was expected to emerge as a fulcrum to the global economic and political landscape, under Chinese hegemony. However, fear of debt trap for smaller and weaker nations looms large. Further, in the light of the US-China trade war, BRI is losing the steam. Many of the debt-laden countries are scaling down their projects under BRI and some are feared for losing their political sovereignty. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe fallacy of the debt trap lies with China luring small and weaker nations with massive loans in the name of infrastructure development. And, when their debt is not paid, it captures their land and resources. It violates the global norms for a development loan, as it leaves little room for debt relief. Observers and analysts accused China of playing a game of bully with “debt diplomacy”. Certain projects become dormant despite the huge investment. According to the Washington Post, some projects with big investment make no economic sense. In Sri Lanka, Chinese loan was spent in the designated airport to handle a million passengers in a year. Now, it has been dubbed as one of the emptiest airports. Also Read – Insider threat managementThe harsh critic of BRI is Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahatir Mohammad, who demanded re-negotiation of East Coast Rail Link project with Chinese financial support. The project was approved by the previous government. The present government reduced the scope and cost of the project by a third. His Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry accused over-pricing, which created a financial burden on the government. Joining the stream was Pakistan, who recently cancelled Rahim Yar Khan power project, which was part of BRI. It has cut the size of Belt and Road project by US$ 2 billion. The Railway Minister Rashid said that “Pakistan is a poor country that cannot afford huge debt burden” Sri Lanka has already sunk in the debt trap. Its Hambantota Port was taken over by China for a 99-year lease on account of Sri Lanka’s failure to repay the loan. Myanmar announced that it was wishing to scale down the Kyaukpyu Port project. In the Maldives, the ratio of debt to GDP sparked to 70 per cent, believed to be due to BRI. In August 2018, President of Maldives Abdul Yameen inaugurated Chinese–built bridge connecting two islands in the archipelago. One month later, Yameen was voted out and the new government began decoding the mountain of the debt burden. Yameen, a close friend of China, borrowed heavily from Beijing to build a new runway for the airport, housing development and hospitals and a long “China-Maldives- Friendship Bridge”. A study by the Centre for Global Development portrays eight nations vulnerable to Chinese debt trap under BRI. They are mostly African and Eurasia countries, and Pakistan. India is not a party to BRI. It suspected the project is a smokescreen, which China is using to siege strategic control on the Indian Ocean. Nevertheless, it poses a big challenge to India to increase hobnobing with its neighbours and friends in Africa. The Chinese debt trap leads to loss of financial sovereignty of these countries. Debts are turning into equity and finally, ownership goes to China. This will weaken trade opportunities between India and its neighbours, some of ASEAN nations and African countries. The growing burden of debt will give more opportunities to China to dominate the terms for trade and investment with the debt-ridden countries. SAFTA (South Asia Free Trade Area) and ASEAN are the cases in point. It will be a new turf for Chinese backdoor entry to India through Bangladesh and Nepal and some ASEAN members. The surge in debt burden will increase India’s vulnerability in the emerging trade block, say RCEP (Regional Cooperation for Economic Partnership). The countries which are currently suspected to fall prey to the debt trap are members of RCEP such as Malaysia, Laos, and Myanmar. China is the biggest stakeholder in RCEP, which includes ASEAN 10 + 6 (China, Japan, Australia, South Korea, New Zealand, and India). At present, India has a trade deficit with RCEP, which is mainly due to China. Given China’s predominance in RCEP, the major concern for India is the trade expansion with debt-laden countries, who are likely to lose trade sovereignty. It will provide a leeway to China for its backdoor entry into India. Apart from trade vulnerability, the debt trap will escalate security concerns. The growing debt burden, which will rip the political sovereignty of India’s neighbours, is feared to escalate security concerns. The acquisition of Hambantota Port in Sri Lank by China is a case in point, where security vulnerability will rise with Chinese aggression in the Indian Ocean. The port is likely to be used for China’s military base, as is suspected. Given the deceleration of BRI rhetoric in the wake of rising debt burden for smaller and weaker nations and the trade war between US and China, which hardly foresees cease-fire in the near term, it is imperative for China to reinvent the project. In light of this, India needs a constant watch and dialogue with debt-laden countries from the perspectives of trade expansion and deepening political relations with these countries.

Jet staff knock on Aviation Ministrys doors

first_imgNew Delhi: Faced with the prospect of job loss, the employees of grounded Jet Airways knocked on the doors of government for helping to save the airline. The airline staff from across various departments took out a march on Tuesday in front of Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan that houses the Civil Aviation Ministry. The employees hope government will take note of their situation and act to protect jobs. Facing severe liquidity crisis, Jet Airways suspended all its operations on April 17 leaving its almost 22,000 employees in the lurch. With the financial health of the airline worsening since then and the SBI-led lenders yet to rope in a buyer, the carrier has seen mass exodus of employees especially engineers and pilots. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad A Jet insider now estimates that the staff strength of the airline could have come down by half in over one month. “Now that elections are over we hope that government would take necessary steps to revive Jet Airways. We will try to meet Aviation Secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola and understand what government could do to protect our jobs,” said a protesting employee working with the airline’s engineering department. Another personnel said that the SBI-led lenders should expedite the stake sale process as there has already been significant delays. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka Gandhi While lenders are vetting various investment proposals, most of the top airline executives including its CEO, CFO and Company Secretary have resigned from their respective positions citing personal reasons. Close on the heels of resignation by the airline’s whole-time director Gaurang Shetty, Etihad nominee on the board Robin Kamark also resigned on May 16. Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, which holds 24 per cent stake in the crisis-hit Jet Airways, is currently the only solicited bidder for a stake in the airline. But experts have found its bid unattractive for the lenders given multiple riders attached to it. Besides offering to invest just Rs 1,700 crore against the requirement of Rs 15,000 crore to revive the crisis-hit airline, Etihad has in its proposal put the onus of finding majority buyer on lenders. The Gulf carrier also wants exemption from giving open offer in case its stake goes beyond 26 per cent.last_img read more

Womens Swimming Liz Li breaks Big Ten record claims Big Ten Championship

Ohio States Devin Smith electrifies Buckeye offense

OSU senior wide receiver Devin Smith attempts to catch a pass during a game against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Aug. 30. Smith finished with 94 yards receiving on the day and one touchdown.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorIn the last four years, senior wide receiver Devin Smith has made his mark on Ohio State football history.From the game-winning catch against Wisconsin in 2011, to his 80-yard, go-ahead score Saturday against Navy, Smith seems to have a knack for making things happen.His score against Navy put the Buckeyes up for the remainder of the game, something he said he believes helped electrify the offense.“We had a slow start, and we were just trying to find ourselves,” Smith said Monday. “We had a few good plays leading up to that … Coach (Urban) Meyer took the shot and we executed very well.”Meyer, who named Smith as one of the OSU offensive champions of the week, said the wide receiver is one of the most explosive players he has ever coached.“I want to say one of the best (deep) ball players we’ve ever had. He adjusts so well to the ball,” Meyer said Monday. “He caught someone said 18 or 19 touchdowns, average (more than) 40 yards per catch on a touchdown. That’s unique. Extremely fast. Tracks the ball down very well.”Wide receivers coach Zach Smith said he thinks Devin Smith’s ability to beat defenses deep is a luxury, especially when the offense is able to run the football.“At some point, they (opposing defenses) have to decide what they are going to be weak at. Whether they are going to play softer and give you the underneath routes, or if they are going to tighten down to stop the slow, painful death and now they are susceptible to the deep shot,” Zach Smith said. “They have to pick their poison on a kid like that.”Zach Smith said Devin Smith’s speed isn’t the only thing that makes the senior wide receiver a threat.“Obviously he has elite speed which is probably the first skill you need, but he has an uncanny ability to track a football and he has really good ball skills on the deep ball,” Zach Smith said.Devin Smith — who has scored go-ahead or game-winning touchdowns against Wisconsin (2011,2013), Michigan State (2012), Iowa (2013) and now Navy, and holds the record for longest play from the line of scrimmage in school history with a 90-yard scoring catch against California (2013) — said he is just doing what he’s told to do to be successful.“Whenever coaches need me, I’m going to do my part and do everything I can to make that play for the football team,” Devin Smith said. “It is all about just trusting in my training and believing in the coaches and them believing in me.”Devin Smith entered his senior season with 1,572 career receiving yards and 18 touchdowns before adding 94 yards and a score against Navy. In comparison, former Buckeye speedster and current Arizona Cardinal Ted Ginn, Jr., totaled 1,943 yards and 15 receiving touchdowns during his three years in Columbus.Although Devin Smith excels at the long ball, coach Smith said the Massillon, Ohio, native could improve in other areas, particularly being more productive in the short-to-intermediate passing game.“That is one of the things that he was really committed to in the spring and in training camp when he was out there is becoming a more complete receiver,” coach Smith said. “That is a battle that everyone is fighting, and he has done a good job of that.”Devin Smith said the distinctive defense that Navy ran prevented him and the OSU offense from opening up the playbook, but added that when the Buckeyes dive into the offense deeper, people will see what he and the offense can do.“That is one thing we worked on all summer during practice and in the spring also,” he said. “It is a matter of time of just showing it. I think from now on, each and every game is going to be different, so you will get a chance to see different guys do different things.”While the Buckeyes are without senior quarterback Braxton Miller for the 2014 season after he tore the labrum in his throwing shoulder in late August, Meyer said the offense has to improve around redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett in order for the coaches to open up the playbook.“I think Barrett’s part of it. The offensive line is a big part of it. What can those guys do and what can they do well?” Meyer said. “We’re expecting them in next couple of weeks to be able to do it all well. It’s not just J.T. When we say expand the playbook, it’s for J.T. and it’s for the offensive line.”Devin Smith said that despite Barrett’s relative inexperience, he is confident the offense and Barrett will continue to produce.“He is very mature. He acts like he is a starter,” Devin Smith said of Barrett. “I know how hungry he is, you can see it every day when he practices. I think with how hard he works, he is going to do everything he can to help this football team.”Devin Smith and the rest of the Buckeyes are set to take on Virginia Tech on Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. read more

Javier Hernandez staying at West Ham says Pellegrini

That was down to us capitulating. We made them look like Paris St Germain at times.“Some people went in their shell and started looking after themselves.

PDM sends Commissioner another message Bring GT Police Officers back

first_img Increased Police presence promised, TCI Police Commissioner statement on recent shootings Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 14 Jan 2016 – The PDM Leader is calling on the Police Commissioner to send the re-stationed officers back to Grand Turk. In a media statement today, Hon Sharlene Robinson said the Party has written to the Commissioner James Smith stating once again that it was a bad move to take police from the Capital and place them in Provo. “We are calling on the Commissioner of Police to reverse his decision to lower the numbers in Grand Turk. While we appreciate the need for Police presence in Providenciales, we still see this move as one that will cause a breakdown in policing efforts in Grand Turk and a reduction in the level of service the community requires and deserves.” Robinson explained that the PDM is aware of as many as eight police being re-deployed to Providenciales late 2015. In that second letter from the PDM, the Commissioner was reportedly told that this depletion of the Grand Turk police manpower is not good because, one, ‘too small a staff lends only to a 3 shift system,’ two, Police Officers will be overworked having to work longer hours and under greater strain with smaller man shifts,’ three: the move ‘weakens Police Patrol and street presence and that ‘Grand Turk sees more tourists than all other Islands combined.’ A suggested remedy by the PDM Party to cope with the need for more police officers was to activate the concept of District Constables, reopen the Training School and for a more comprehensive Policing Plan to be presented to the people of the country.

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — Aleix Lovet and Xavier Saluena, two researchers at the Polytechnic Institute of Catalonia, have made the world first RC car that runs entirely on soda cans. Well, to be more accurate, it runs on a combination of recycled aluminum soda can tabs and sodium hydroxide. This creates a vehicle that is completely carbon emission free and creates no planet harming waste.

The car, which have been dubbed the DAlH2Orean remote-controlled car, is a worlds first. The car uses the hydrogen power generated by a chemical reaction, when the aluminum tabs are brought together with a mixed solution of sodium hydroxide and water. After being run through a few filters, such as a silica gel to remove the moisture, and a vinegar filter to remove any lingering hydroxides, the fuel is complete.

While this is, at this stage of research, an interesting curiosity, this research has the potential to grow into a very real world application. The research team behind the zero-emissions remote controlled car hopes to one day transition the technology to cars in the real world. The cars, which the team sees as being microcars, would also be zero-emissions and could take a small number of people where they need to go. Hopefully, they will not be RC. © 2010 PhysOrg.comlast_img read more

Govt looks at taxes dividends to meet deficit target

first_imgGovernment is likely to step up efforts to mop up additional resources by hiking duties and seeking higher dividends from PSUs to make up for the anticipated shortfall in disinvestment and direct tax proceeds in its bid to meet the fiscal deficit target.The Finance Ministry had last week raised excise duty on petrol by Rs 1.60 per litre and the same on diesel by 40 paise, which is expected to fetch the exchequer an additional revenue of about Rs 3,200 crore during the rest of the fiscal. This will help the government in partly meeting the shortfall in disinvestment and direct tax realisation.

It has a target of Rs 69,500 crore to be garnered from minority stake sale in PSUs as well as strategic stake sale. With seven months of the current fiscal already over, the Department of Disinvestment has already indicated to the Finance Ministry that it would not be possible to meet the ambitious target.As regards dividend, the government is pushing blue-chip PSUs to either step up their capex or pay higher dividends and not sit on cash pile.

It has already received a dividend of Rs 65,896 crore from RBI, which is higher than this year’s budget projection of Rs 64,477 crore.Making up for the shortfall in disinvestment through other sources is essential for meeting the fiscal deficit target of 3.9 per cent of GDP.last_img read more
