BC finance minister says budget on track province to lead country in

first_imgVICTORIA — Finance Minister Carole James says British Columbia’s economic growth remains “strong and stable” and the budget is on track to record a surplus in the 2018-19 fiscal year.James says the operating debt, which builds up when tax or other revenue misses spending pledges made in a budget, has been reduced to zero for the first time in four decades.She says the province’s second quarter results for this fiscal year show a projected surplus of $1.35 billion.The Finance Ministry forecasts GDP growth of 2.2 per cent this year, while the value of all goods and services produced by the province is forecast to climb by 1.8 per cent in 2019.James says risks facing the province include a $250-million drop in Crown corporation earnings, mainly due to losses at the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, as well as a slowing down of the housing market.To offset those risks, she says a fund that covers potentially volatile revenue changes has been increased by $600 million.“That additional prudence is very critical … to help mitigate any kind of provincial revenue impacts,” she told a news conference at the legislature on Monday.James says RBC and other analysts remain positive about economic growth in B.C., forecasting the province will remain a leader in Canada this year and next, even before the benefits of a liquefied natural gas development in Kitimat are added to projections over the next several months.“Private forecasters expect that B.C.’s economic growth will be strong. In fact, they are predicting that we are going to lead the provincial rankings in 2019,” she said.The 2019-20 budget will be released Feb. 19, along with the third quarterly report.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Former executive sues Tinder claims sex assault by exCEO

LOS ANGELES — An ex-executive at dating site Tinder has sued the company and says she was sexually assaulted by its former CEO.The lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court said Rosette Pambakian was fired from her job as marketing vice-president after complaining about the alleged 2016 incident.Pambakian says former Match Group and Tinder CEO Gregory Blatt made a lewd overture to her at a company party at a hotel and later groped and kissed her without consent in front of two witnesses.Pambakian’s lawyers say the company owned by IAC/InterActiveCorp, which is controlled by media mogul Barry Diller, conducted a sham investigation that concluded the behaviour was “consensual cuddling.”IAC representatives did not immediately comment. The company previously said a related lawsuit that included the allegations was meritless.The Associated Press read more

Concerned over Afghanistans security Annan urges expansion of international force

Calling security in Afghanistan an ongoing “cause for concern,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan has advocated a limited expansion of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) currently deployed in Kabul, according to a report released today at United Nations Headquarters in New York. In a report to the General Assembly and Security Council describing the implementation of the Bonn Agreement now guiding Afghanistan’s political transition, the Secretary-General enumerates the many challenges that remain for the country and the international community. Concerning security, he notes that the Taliban have not formally given up. “They may have been significantly weakened, with those left being effectively contained by the anti-terrorist coalition headed by the United States,” he observes, “But they are still present, along with remnants of Al-Qaida.” These pariah groups are not the only elements causing instability in Afghanistan, according to the report. “The presence of armed factions that nominally support the process continues to pose a threat to the consolidation of peace and civil government in the country,” Mr. Annan notes. The Secretary-General cautions that in the absence of functioning Afghan security forces and an expansion of the ISAF, Afghanistan will stay hostage to this prevailing insecurity. “Lack of tangible improvement in the security situation could seriously undermine the political and reconstruction efforts,” he warns. Against this difficult background, the Secretary-General hails the Afghan people for successfully convening their Loya Jirga grand council, which, despite some imperfections, accomplished its central tasks of electing the country’s Head of State and setting up a Transitional Authority. “These moments provided hope that the first tentative steps in the process of national reconciliation and unity have now been taken,” Mr. Annan says. If the peace process is to succeed, humanitarian and recovery activities must continue alongside these critical political steps, the report states. But a slowdown in donor disbursements “has caused potentially serious disruptions to programmes addressing the most urgent needs around the country the Secretary-General said.” Of even greater concern, he adds, “is the lack of funding available to the Government to fund its basic services and extend its presence beyond Kabul.” read more

US expected to expand strategy of drone patrol to Canadian border

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Elliot Spagat And Brian Skoloff, The Associated Press Posted Nov 12, 2014 10:34 pm MDT U.S. expected to expand strategy of drone patrol to Canadian border SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. – The U.S. government now patrols nearly half the Mexican border by drones alone in a largely unheralded shift to control desolate stretches where there are no agents, camera towers, ground sensors or fences, and it plans to expand the strategy to the Canadian border.It represents a significant departure from a decades-old approach that emphasizes boots on the ground and fences. Since 2000, the number of Border Patrol agents on the 1,954-mile border more than doubled to surpass 18,000 and fencing multiplied nine times to 700 miles.Under the new approach, Predator Bs sweep remote mountains, canyons and rivers with a high-resolution video camera and return within three days for another video in the same spot, two officials with direct knowledge of the effort said on condition of anonymity because details have not been made public.The two videos are then overlaid for analysts who use sophisticated software to identify tiny changes — perhaps the tracks of a farmer or cows, perhaps those of immigrants who entered the country illegally or a drug-laden Hummer, they said.About 92 per cent of drone missions have shown no change in terrain, but the others raised enough questions to dispatch agents to determine if someone got away, sometimes by helicopter because the area is so remote. The agents look for any sign of human activity — footprints, broken twigs, trash.About 4 per cent of missions have been false alarms, like tracks of livestock or farmers, and about 2 per cent are inconclusive. The remaining 2 per cent offer evidence of illegal crossings from Mexico, which typically results in ground sensors being planted for closer monitoring.The government has operated about 10,000 drone flights under the strategy, known internally as “change detection,” since it began in March 2013. The flights currently cover about 900 miles, much of it in Texas, and are expected to expand to the Canadian border by the end of 2015.The purpose is to assign agents where illegal activity is highest, said R. Gil Kerlikowske, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol’s parent agency, which operates nine unmanned aircraft across the country.“You have finite resources,” he said in an interview. “If you can look at some very rugged terrain (and) you can see there’s not traffic, whether it’s tire tracks or clothing being abandoned or anything else, you want to deploy your resources to where you have a greater risk, a greater threat.”If the video shows the terrain unchanged, Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher calls it “proving the negative” — showing there isn’t anything illegal happening there and therefore no need for agents and fences.The strategy was launched without fanfare and expanded at a time when President Barack Obama prepares to issue an executive order by the end of this year to reduce deportations and enhance border security.Rep. Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, applauded the approach while saying that surveillance gaps still remain. “We can no longer focus only on static defences such as fences and fixed (camera) towers,” he said.Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican who co-authored legislation last year to add 20,000 Border Patrol agents and 350 miles of fencing to the southwest border, said, “If there are better ways of ensuring the border is secure, I am certainly open to considering those options.”Border missions fly out of Sierra Vista, home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca, or Corpus Christi, Texas. They patrol at altitudes between 19,000 at 28,000 feet and between 25 and 60 miles of the border.The first step is for Border Patrol sector chiefs to identify areas that are least likely to attract smugglers, typically far from towns and roads. Analysts scour the drone videos at operations centres in Grand Forks, North Dakota; Riverside, California; and Sierra Vista. After an initial survey, the drones return within a week for another sweep.Privacy advocates have raised concerns about drones since Customs and Border Protection introduced them in 2006, saying there is potential to monitor innocent people under no suspicion. Lothar Eckardt, the agency’s executive director of national air security operations, said law-abiding people shouldn’t worry and that cameras are unable to capture details like license plate numbers and faces on the ground.Eckardt looked on one September morning as a drone taxied down a runway in Sierra Vista, lifted off with a muffled buzz, and disappeared over a rocky mountain range into a blue Arizona sky. About a dozen computer screens line the wall of their trailer, showing the weather, maps and real-time images of the ground below.Eckardt said there is “no silver bullet” to border security but that using drones in highly remote areas is part of the overall effort. If there’s nothing there, he said, “Let’s not waste the manpower here. Let’s focus our efforts someplace else, where they’re needed.”___Spagat reported from San Diego. read more

New UN budget proposal shows commitment to strict financial management says Ban

“My proposals for the 2016-2017 programme budget are built on our progress,” Mr. Ban told delegates in the UN General Assembly’s Fifth Committee, which focuses on administrative and budgetary issues.“In formulating the proposal before you, I continued to challenge my senior managers to find new and better ways of delivering mandates more effectively and efficiently. I urged them to rethink our business practices and embrace innovative synergies,” he added.The UN chief explained that he had presented a budget outline level of $5.74 billion dollars to the General Assembly, which then invited him to prepare the proposed budget on the basis of a preliminary estimate of $5.56 billion. “I am now proposing a budget level of $5.57 billion, before recosting,” he announced. “This is 1.6 per cent – or $90.8 million – below the appropriation for the current biennium, and is $10.2 million – or 0.2 per cent – above the budget outline figure set by the General Assembly.”Mr. Ban explained that the increase of 0.2 per cent over the budget outline figure is mainly due to adjustments in light of recent General Assembly decisions on a new administrative online platform, called Umoja, which is currently been rolled out. He also indicated that the proposal reflects a net decrease of 56 posts [job positions] compared to the current budget, primarily related to the “freezing of posts.”The Secretary-General further underlined that with UN Member States adopting the Addis Ababa Action Agenda last July and the landmark 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September, in addition to commitments made to achieve a universal climate agreement in Paris in December, some costs haven’t been taken into account.“My budget proposals do not yet reflect any possible financial implications required for the Organization to support Member States in achieving these goals,” Mr. Ban explained. “We are working towards the most appropriate implementation framework for the UN system and the Secretariat. As we assess financial implications arising from this framework, I will present any cost estimates to the Assembly.”He recalled that with the end of his 10 year tenure as Secretary-General, half the executions for the budget period will have to be carried by his successor. “I have felt a sense of responsibility to make sure that my successor, whoever it may be, will be able to carry out his or her duties smoothly and with sufficient resources,” he said. “That is my commitment, and that spirt is reflected in this programme budget.”In conclusion, he called for collaboration to ensure that the United Nations “makes the best possible use of our resources in the service of humanity.” read more

Dont have a charger Just wind these batteries up

first_imgRead more at Yanko Design Rechargeable batteries are beneficial in that you you can reuse them over and over again just by dropping them into a nearby charger for a few minutes or a few hours. But what if you are in a situation where a charger is unavailable or even broken? Now matter how good they are, rechargeable batteries lose their usefulness quickly unless you have a charging unit to power them back up.That is where the design team of Yeon Kyeong Hwang and Mieong Ho Kang come in. They both have a concept for a new rechargeable battery that not only can get a boost from normal charging stations, but these batteries have the added benefit that you can wind them in order to give them a needed charge.Not only would these batteries be useful if you didn’t want to carry chargers around with you all the time, these batteries could also be recharged in an emergency where you didn’t have a charger available. Pretty slick stuff. We hope this innovative battery duo finds a backer for their wind-up battery concept very soon.last_img read more

I still think he is an important player – Zidane on

first_imgConsidering how weak has Bale’s performance been throughout the duration of this season, he was initially rumoured to be transferred to another club, which was then followed by speculations of his dissatisfaction at Madrid.Bale has exhibited inconsistency and this has led his club to consider a possible transfer of the Welshman with Manchester United and Tottenham being reportedly only a part of the interested clubs.However, Zidane recently shared he is not surprised by the fact that Bale is not among the happiest players in Real right now.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“I understand that he is not in a good mood, that’s normal,” Zidane said, according to the Express.“Players want to play in every game.

Slow traffic no jams Quader

first_imgObaidul Quader: File photoTraffic may be moving at a slow pace during this Eid season, but there are no traffic jams anywhere, according to road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader. He said traffic movement was slow as fast-moving and slow-moving vehicles were moving together and many vehicles which did not use the highways regularly were now on the roads. He said road accidents were also an impediment.He admitted that the slow movement of traffic caused public suffering.The minister was speaking to journalists at 11:00 am Saturday morning after inspecting the Mahakhali bus terminal in the city. He also spoke to passengers who were waiting at the ticket counters. The passengers complained of inordinate delays in departure. Children suffered the most, they said.The minister went on say, “Large numbers of people are going home for Eid. There are no problems along the Chittagong and Sylhet highways. The problems are being faced by the north-bound vehicles along the Dhaka-Tangail highway. Vehicle movement is slow from Elenga to the Kadda intersection on the other side of Bangabandhu Bridge. There are some slow-moving vehicles on the highway. Also, vehicles not generally used on the highway are being used during Eid. Their engines stall and accidents occur. Until these vehicles are removed from the accidents spots, traffic speed is impeded.”Obaidul Quader said that this time the roads were not damaged. All the roads had been repaired.About sufferings at the ferry terminals, the minister said rains and the river current have delayed ferry crossing. This has caused problems at the south-western ferry terminals, he said.last_img read more

Patterson Endorses Democrat over Bush for Land Commissioner

Bush, left, and Jerry Patterson.Former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, a Republican, is endorsing a Democrat for his old job. That’s after he waged an unsuccessful campaign to wrest the GOP nomination from incumbent Commissioner George P. Bush.Patterson has been a Republican for more than 30 years, heading the General Land Office (GLO) from 2003 to 2015. So why is he backing Democratic attorney Miguel Suazo over Bush?“Well, I mean, it’s pretty simple,” Patterson says. “My loyalty to my state and my loyalty to The Alamo trumps any loyalty to my party.”Patterson made Bush’s alleged mismanagement of The Alamo a key issue in his primary challenge to Bush. He also blames Bush for delays in rolling out the GLO’s home repair program after Harvey. “And that was a decision made solely to be a fiscal conservative and look good in the next election,” Patterson says. “To me that’s unsatisfactory.”Bush’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

Five books to look forward to in September 2017

first_imgThe literary scene has been quiet for some time now, but as the heat of summer gradually recedes, quite a few literary festivals and gatherings are on the cards. With such crowd-pulling platforms for publicity and launch of new books scheduled in the coming months, many works of interest by headline authors will soon hit the stores. The past two months had witnessed a significant number of fiction releases, but in September, non-fiction rules the roost. The only promising fiction title for the month marks the return of Commonwealth Writers’ Prize winning author Nayantara Sahgal.Here are the five books that we can’t wait to read this September:1. “When the Moon Shines by Day” by Nayantara Sahgal India has changed. Rehana finds her father’s books on medieval history have “disappeared” from bookstores and libraries. Her young domestic help, Abdul, discovers it is safer to be called Morari Lal in the street, but there is no such protection from vigilante fury for his Dalit friend, Suraj. Kamlesh, a diplomat and writer, comes up against official wrath for his anti-war views. A bomb goes off at Cyrus Batliwala’s gallery on the opening day of an art show.Presiding over this new world is the Director of Cultural Transformation, whose smiling affability masks a relentless agenda to create a Hindu master race. In this atmosphere, Rehana and her three book-club friends, Nandini, Aruna and Lily, meet every week to discuss a book one of them has chosen – their oasis of peace amidst the harshness of reality – even as Rehana’s German friend, Franz Rohner, haunted by his country’s Nazi past, warns her of what is to come. All revolutions, he wryly observes, follow the same path.But is India about to prove him wrong? 2. “The Indian Spirit: The Untold Story of Alcohol in India” by Magandeep Singh Drinking has been as old as eating and it has been an important part of Indian culture. The book is a treasure trove for those who have the palate to enjoy their drink and curiosity to know where it came from. It also tells you about the right way to order and enjoy your drink. It delves into history to trace the earliest instances of drinking in India. The author’s brilliant research also notes the manner in which drinking is mentioned in classical Indian literature and its recognition in our culture. Captured in the book are fascinating stories about alcohol, the etiquette of drinking and tasting notes on different spirits and brews. 3. “The Parrots of Desire: 3,000 Years of Indian Erotica” by Amrita NarayananThe erotic tradition in India is thousands of years old. In “The Parrots of Desire”, the modern reader, to whom the anthology is dedicated, will find a wealth of Indian erotic writing – beyond the famously unbridled passages of the Kama Sutra and Koka Shastra. There is, for instance, the extract “Why does sex exist?”, recreated from the 3,000-year-old Rig Veda; the work of the Tamil Sangam poets, whose contemporary finesse belies their antiquity; Bhakti poets Antal and Mahadeviyakka, who describe women’s fantasies of men; short stories by Kamala Das that have been out of print for decades; excerpts from the work of contemporary writers like Mridula Garg and Ginu Kamani, and much more.4. “Husain: Portrait of an Artist” by Ila PalSix years after first seeing him on a rainy day outside Mumbai’s Jehangir Art Gallery, Ila Pal met the star painter for the first time in 1961. It was the beginning of a long and enriching association between an eager student of art and M.F. Husain – a journey that lasted 50 years. This book is a product of that intimate relationship.Filled with anecdotes about his charisma, his sharp wit, his sense of wonder about the world at large and his insatiable hunger for love, this warm and personalised biography traces his evolution through his many avatars. It also delves into the artist’s exile from his homeland at the fag end of his life, exploring the question of creative licence in a climate where people’s sentiments are easily hurt and where censorship rules the roost like never before.5. “Barefoot To Boots” by Novy KapadiaFew football-crazy fans today may be aware that India was once called the “Brazil of Asia”. Or that the rivalry between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan is ranked among the top 50 club rivalries in the world. This is the only book on Indian football that provides a comprehensive view of clubs and players outside of Calcutta (Kolkata) – in Hyderabad and Bangalore, as also in Kerala, Punjab, Goa and the northeast. It describes major international tournaments where India performed brilliantly.last_img read more

Still remain Muslim faith is above attire Nusrat slams cleric Twitter says

first_imgKolkata: Actor and newly-elected TMC MP Nusrat Jahan’s was pulled in a controversy on Saturday after a Muslim cleric criticised her for marrying a Jain businessman and wearing a sindoor (vermilion) and bangles. Nusrat Jahan sporting bangles and sindoor while taking oath as Lok Sabha member became a matter of controversy when a Muslim cleric criticised her for marrying a person outside her religion and termed the practice as un-Islamic. “Islam says a Muslim can marry only a Muslim. I have got to know that Nusrat is a film actor and people in the cinema do not care about religious practices. They do what they have to,” said Mufti Asad Quasmi of Madrasa Jamia Sheikh-ul-Hind. He also questioned the parliamentarian’s decision to marry a man belonging to Jainism. However, Nusrat Jahan gave an apt response saying she represents an inclusive India. Taking it to Twitter, the first time parliamentarian who has recently got married, Nusrat Jahan said, “I represent an inclusive India which is beyond the barriers of caste, creed and religion.”(With inputs from DNA)last_img read more
