Meeting with PM wont stop BCs opposition to pipeline Horgan

first_imgHe said Notley and the prime minister should at least consider building more oil refineries in Canada.Horgan, who has often suggested building more refineries, said he will raise the issue in Sunday’s meeting.“If they have disposable billions, I would suggest a better course of action would be investing in refining capacity so that we Canadians can benefit from the jobs and we Canadians can benefit from this natural resource rather than sending it in raw form to another jurisdiction,” he said.By Dirk MeissnerTHE CANADIAN PRESS Trudeau summoned Horgan and Notley for the meeting over the escalating dispute. The prime minister is attending the Summit of the Americas in Peru, but will return to Canada for the meeting before heading to Europe on a trade mission.Kinder Morgan, the pipeline’s operator, turned up the heat last week announcing it is stopping essential spending on the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain expansion because of opposition and delays in B.C. The company established a May 31 deadline for action.“I’m happy to hear what the prime minister and perhaps Rachel Notley has to say,” Horgan said. “I don’t feel there’s any need for sabre-rattling or provocation, nor for threats.”Notley said her New Democrat government is preparing to introduce legislation that could reduce the flow of oil to B.C., which is likely to cause gas prices to spike in the Vancouver area, where motorists are already paying more than $1.50 per litre.On Thursday in Edmonton, Notley didn’t appear to soften her stand ahead of the meeting.“There is one and only one solution, and that solution is that the pipeline gets built without delay.” Trudeau was in Vancouver and Victoria last week where he was met by protests, but reiterated the federal government approved the pipeline project in November 2016 and will ensure it is built. The federal cabinet held an emergency meeting this week and has since voiced its support for the project.Horgan said B.C. intends to pursue court action that involves seeking a constitutional reference case to determine who has the jurisdiction to permit the pipeline to cross B.C.“We are in court following the rule of law. We’re developing a question with respect to jurisdiction that will be referred to a court in short order and as far as I’m concerned we are issuing (project) permits as requested by the proponent.”Green Party leader Andrew Weaver said the federal and Alberta governments are missing an opportunity to bring Canada’s economy into the 21st century by supporting the expansion project.center_img VICTORIA, B.C. — A defiant British Columbia Premier John Horgan said he won’t back down from his government’s opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline project when he meets Sunday with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.Horgan said Thursday he will go to Ottawa to hear what the prime minister and Alberta premier have to say, but if they expect him to drop B.C.’s court actions or its advocacy for protection from oil spills, they are mistaken.“I will defend to the end the rights of B.C. to stand up and defend our coast,” Horgan said during an outdoor news conference near a legislature flower garden. “This is a serious issue for British Columbians and I’ll do my level best to make sure the premier of Alberta and the prime minister understand that.”last_img read more

US companies tax windfall fuels record share buybacks

U.S. corporations spent a record amount buying back their own shares last year, using 2017’s tax-cut windfall to reward shareholders rather than to invest or expand their businesses.Companies in the S&P 500 spent $806 billion on stock buybacks in 2018, blowing away the previous record of nearly $590 billion set in 2007. The information technology and financial service sectors were the biggest spenders, with Apple leading the pack. When share prices plunged in the fourth quarter it only encouraged companies to spend more, setting a fourth consecutive quarterly record for buybacks.Companies can return profits to shareholders either via dividends or buybacks. Buying back shares has the advantage of reducing the number of shares outstanding, which often gives a boost to closely watched financial metrics such as earnings per share.“Buybacks were again favoured over dividends in both the rate of growth and aggregate dollars spent,” said Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices.2017’s tax overhaul was trumpeted as a way to give companies more cash to invest to grow their businesses. But its timing coincided with signs that the global economy had begun to slow, an incentive for companies to instead give the cash back to investors.The practice has come under scrutiny by members of Congress, who criticized companies for using their extra tax benefits to boost the value of their own shares instead of investing in outside growth or their workers.In the short term, the buybacks won’t make much of a difference for the broader market, said Scott Wren, senior global equity strategist at Wells Fargo Investment Institute. But, it will help companies deal with a broadly uncertain market.“They want to keep the ball moving down the field and if they feel like there are headwinds organically, they’ll do a bit financial engineering,” said Wren said. “Companies have done a good job over this long cycle playing the hand they’re dealt,” he said. “Buybacks are part of that.”Damian J.

Mission in Haiti needs capacity for urban operations UN peacekeeping chief says

After briefing the Security Council in closed session, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Marie Guéhenno told journalists that security in the Caribbean nation, where the UN has deployed the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) since June of last year, is the immediate and fundamental challenge, without which “no progress is certain.”In the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, there have been security improvements in one slum district, Bel Air, but no real improvement in Cité Soleil, where the people have been the first victims of gangs, he said.MINUSTAH has carried out a number of military actions in these areas, Mr. Guéhenno said, but “it is not easy for MINUSTAH to conduct these operations because, operating in an urban environment, ideally you need the kind of very specialized capacities that the mission doesn’t really have. But this security situation needs to be addressed urgently.”Saying there may have been some civilian casualties during a MINUSTAH operation carried out on 6 July in the Bois Neuf area of Cité Soleil aimed at arresting a prominent gang leader, Emmanuel Wilmer, alias “Dread Wilmé,” Mr. Guéhenno said they were “not of the order of magnitude” reported by some critics of the mission.“After the operation, there were unconfirmed reports from the Haitian National Police (HNP) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that there were a number of revenge killings,” he said.The country was extraordinarily polarized, he noted, using as illustrations the burning of a major market downtown Port-au-Prince last month and the killing of journalist Jacques Roche, whose body was found last Sunday, four days after he was abducted.Another challenge facing MINUSTAH was assisting with the upcoming elections which could be a foundation for stabilization or could further divide the country, Mr. Guéhenno said, as a consequence of which the mission was promoting inclusiveness, but on the basis that violence was not an option. He welcomed the clear condemnation of violence from moderates in Fanmi (Famille) Lavalas, the party headed by President Jean-Bertrand Aristide before he left the country in February of last year.The third challenge for the mission was the shocking poverty and high unemployment he had observed across Haiti, which “does not create, obviously, a good basis for reconciliation and progress.” MINUSTAH, for its part, was looking at using Haitian manpower in such projects as road building, Mr. Guéhenno said. read more

Opposition Growing to Va Techs Plan to Induct Michael

Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Vick (7) eludes Clemson’s Keith Adams for a short gain in the first quarter of the Gator Bowl NCAA college football game in Jacksonville, Fla. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File)BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Public opposition is growing against the planned induction of former football star Michael Vick into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame.The Roanoke Times reported Tuesday that two online petitions at change.org had received more than 90,000 combined signatures against the September induction. The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine has also announced its opposition.The university in Blacksburg has continued to defend its recent decision, noting that some believe Vick is the greatest athlete in school history.Vick served 19 months in federal prison on 2007 dogfighting convictions. He was a top contender for the 1999 Heisman Trophy after leading the Hokies through an undefeated regular season and to a spot in the national championship game. He went on to play professionally for the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. read more

Mens soccer takes seventh shutout on season

After losing three of its last four games, the Buckeye men’s soccer team broke through with a much-needed 2-0 win over Oakland (Mich.) University Wednesday night at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Ohio State scored its first goal midway through the first half, which allowed them to play with more confidence than they had during the recent downturn. “That’s one of our first goals we’ve scored in the first half this year,” midfielder Sam Scales said. “Early goals makes things so much more comfortable. To get that goal was awesome.” The opening goal came in the 18th minute on a corner kick from Scales that found the forehead of the team’s leading scorer, Konrad Warzycha, for his sixth goal of the season. Scales said that he had been working on driving the ball in from the corner instead of bending it in like he had previously. “Konrad’s a big old guy,” Scales said. “It’s pretty easy to find him in there.” OSU coach John Bluem said he thought the game was a little flat, but was ultimately happy his players were able to get a win after a tumultuous stretch. “I hope that we can build from this game,” Bluem said. “It wasn’t our best performance of the year, but the second half early goal like that sure took a lot of the pressure off and made it easy for us.” During the week, Bluem said the main symptom of his team’s struggles came from the lack of scoring up front by the forwards. After not being in the starting lineup, forward Chris Hegngi netted the team’s second goal 21 seconds into the second half. “It’s good for his confidence,” Bluem said. “He didn’t start tonight and maybe that was the fire from him that we needed.” “I hadn’t scored in a few games. You knew it was important to get the second goal, and it was awesome to get that second goal,” Hegngi said. OSU is down to its final stage of the season as it hosts Wisconsin and Big Ten-leading Indiana to wind things down. The Buckeyes came into Wednesday’s game ranked No. 6 in the conference standings and needed the win against Oakland to get back on track heading into such a critical portion of the season. “We need to be better than we are right now if we expect to win games as we get going down the stretch,” Bluem said. “The games get harder and harder at the end of the season and we have to accept that, work harder and push ourselves harder and be ready, mentally and physically for these games.” read more

The Android Market is dead long live Google Play

first_imgLast week, Google was spotted nabbing a bunch of domains related to Google Play. The early signs were pointing to this being the 7-inch Kindle Fire rival that the company has been rumored to release. Boy, was that off target.As it turns out, Google Play is instead a complete rebranding of all of Google’s media services. Think of it as Google’s answer to the brand recognition of iTunes. The Android Market, Google Books, Google Music, and more will all be rebranded as part of Google Play.This is less about new functionality, and more about brand simplicity and unification. Even if all of these services — including the Android Market — stay the same as they’ve always been, they will now be united in customers’ minds. This may sound superficial, but it’s an important part of brand recognition.It’s also further evidence that Larry Page took his reported mentoring session with Steve Jobs to heart. In Walter Isaacson’s biography Steve Jobs, the meeting is described as Page seeking advice on being a CEO from the ailing Apple co-founder. Jobs reportedly told the head of Google that his company makes too many products, and that all except for search are crap. He told Page to cut down, simplify, and focus on what’s important (hardly surprising advice from the former Apple CEO). That’s exactly what Page has been doing, cutting the cord on Google Labs, focusing more on simple design, and now uniting Google’s media markets into one united storefront. It’s positively Apple-esque.So you can kiss the Android Market goodbye, and say hello to the Google Play Store. Links to My Music, My Books, My Movies, and, of course, My Android Apps will be prominently featured at the top of the page. It’s the same as the Android Market, only unified under a three syllable brand.You should see the update roll out within the next few days, and you can already visit the Google Play Store on the web at the link below.More at the Google Play Storelast_img read more

Indian athletics star Dutee Chand reveals she is in samesex relationship becomes

first_imgDutee Chand becomes first Indian athlete to reveal her homosexualityLinato Zhang/Getty ImagesOne of India’s most successful athletes of all time, Dutee Chand, who won silver for the country in both 100 meter and 200 meter event at last year’s Jakarta Asian Games has created history by becoming first major sportsperson from India to declare herself in a same-sex relationship.This announcement by Chand was made in an interview given to The Indian Express’ Sunday edition. She stated: “I have found someone who is my soulmate. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be with whoever they decide they want to be with. I have always supported the rights of those who want to be in a same-sex relationship. It is an individual person’s choice. Currently, my focus is on the World Championships and the Olympic Games but in the future I would like to settle down with her.”Facing troubles in the pastThis revelation has made waves in the Indian social media with many people coming out in her support and praising her for what they describe as ‘courage.’ The 23-year old, who hails from Odisha, had been earlier caught in a controversy over her eligibility to compete as a female in events for that gender. Due to hyperandrogenism, a condition which causes women to have higher levels of androgens than what is considered normal for the sex, she was removed from the Indian athletics squad for the 2014 Commonwealth Games held in Australia’s Gold Coast and the Asian Games of the same year in South Korea’s Incheon.However, in 2015, thanks to a case being filed in the Court of Arbitration for Sports on her behalf, the rules pertaining to testosterone levels in female athletes were changed and Dutee was allowed to participate again. Chand had earlier been disqualified from participating due to hyperandrogenismIANSAn uncharted territoryBut her latest revelation is an even bigger step. While there are many athletes in other countries who have revealed their homosexuality and have continued their participation, India has been relatively untouched by this phenomenon. For Dutee, the Supreme Court judgement invalidating section 377 of Indian Penal Code which criminalised homosexuality was a major moment.”I have always believed that everyone should have the freedom to love. There is no greater emotion than love and it should not be denied. The Supreme Court of India has also struck down the old law. I believe nobody has the right to judge me as an athlete because of my decision to be with who I want. It is a personal decision, which should be respected. I will continue to strive to win medals for India at international meets,” the girl from Odisha said.While homosexuality has been de-criminalised, there is no provision in the Indian law for same-sex marriages. Yet, the sprinter looks forward to having the company of her partner. “I wanted to be with someone who will encourage me to continue being a sportsperson. I have been a sprinter for the past 10 years and I will perhaps continue to run for the next five to seven years. I travel around the world to compete. It is not easy. Mujhe kisi ka sahara bhi chahiye (I also need to have the support of someone),” the athlete added.last_img read more

Houston City Council Approves Ordering Study For LongTerm Financial Plan

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Al OrtizHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner says one of the things he wants to see in the study are suggestions about day to day operations in the City.The Houston City Council approved Wednesday spending $565,000 on a study that will help Mayor Sylvester Turner and council members design a long-term financial plan.The Philadelphia-based consulting firm PFM Group will do the study combining the forecast of revenues, expenditures and long-term obligations with two big goals Turner has set for his administration:  sustainable future budgets and full funding of city pensions.The study will present recommendations for a timeframe of 10 years.“What the study will seek to do is to find how can we create –whether through cuts, whether through revenue— this balance that doesn’t have us lurching from year to year for a single source… a single solution to the budget but, instead, has that long-range solution to the budget that we’ve been seeking,” explains Kelly Dowe, director of finance for the city.Turner says he also wants to see suggestions about day-to-day operations in the city.“We have 23 departments. The question is: Can we run more efficiently, more prudently? Now: are there duplications, can we streamline? Are we operating with best practices, you know, can we do better?” Turner commented during the press conference held after the council meeting.There is not a final timeline for the PFM Group to turn in the study, but Dowe says the city would like to have at least some initial recommendations by February or March, as they work on the budget for Fiscal Year 2018. 00:00 /01:21 X Sharelast_img read more

The agony and the ecstasy of waiting to play The Legend of

first_img <> 1/10Nintendo employees wrangle the Zelda faithful. 1/10Life-size Link takes aim. 1/10Almost there! 1/10Three hours away from a precious few minutes with Zelda. 1/10Even the president of the Nintendo of America needs to eat. 1/10Was the Zelda booth at E3 a sneak peak at Nintendo’s theme park plans? 1/10Zelda amiibos, now with moving parts! 1/10These folks didn’t have to wait in line. 1/10Famous goblins, bokoblins. 1/10Gorgeous Zelda artwork, did you expect anything less? Two things stick out in my mind when recalling playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the upcoming Wii U/NX entry in Nintendo’s flagship series and the first game I ever played at an E3. One, it’s shaping up to be an amazing game pumping the franchise full of much needed life and scope. Two, waiting to play it felt like a Zelda dungeon in and of itself. Smashing these thoughts together is the only way for me to honestly talk about my experience with the game.The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild confirmed for me that from now on only weird Japanese game auteurs are allowed to make the open-world games Ubisoft has boiled down into soulless product. Like Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain, Breath of the Wild adds creative flourishes and personality to otherwise standard stealth, exploration, and combat mechanics. Use a variety of tactics to tag and take down outposts full of famous Zelda enemy Orcs, Moblins. Club about to break? Chuck it at a foe Hotline Miami-style. Carrying a torch? Burn everything to the ground.If only I had thought of some better tactics. As soon as the show floor doors opened at noon I made my way to the Nintendo booth, and yet I still found myself in the middle of a ridiculously long line. I heard someone say it was the longest line they ever saw at E3. I don’t have any others to compare it to, so I guess everything else will seem relatively better. If you weren’t in line by 1:30 you weren’t going to play. That’s how unending it was.Speaking of unending, the world itself in Breath of the Wild is vast and organic, not made of prefab environmental parts. You can climb almost anything with the overdue jump button, although the stamina gauge from Skyward Sword limits you somewhat. Also from Skyward Sword are the Twilight Princess-meets-Wind Waker graphics (now in beautiful HD) as well as an emphasis on overworld puzzles and gear. Surviving in the wild doesn’t just mean carrying the right shield but also stealing enemy food or wearing a warm coat in the snow. It’s all set to moving, Miyazaki-esque music.Listening to that music helped me stay excited as the wait stretched on. I began paying attention to absurd little moments happening around me. Nintendo’s own employees were constantly baffled by how long the line was. At one point the line intersected with the line of Nintendo employees, including President Reggie Fils-Aime, getting lunch.So we were all just standing in two different lines for a while. A nearby booth for The Last Guardian lets visitors grope a giant projection of the catbird creature. At least Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma waved at us when he wasn’t talking about the game and its plot on Nintendo’s livestream.What little plot I noticed in the game involved a pig-shaped cloud of evil named Calamity Ganon and a nude Link awakening from a 100-year coma (again like Metal Gear). The gamepad is now the Sheikah Slate, a tablet Link uses for plotting his adventure and a surprisingly technological device for a Zelda item. Voice acting is new to Zelda, but the only voice I heard was the mysterious woman (Zelda herself?) heard in the trailer, guiding this new hero.center_img I didn’t get to play a dungeon, but I did play one of the over 100 little dungeon-style shrines scattered in the overworld with single puzzles to complete. There were also over 100 demo stations, but that didn’t seem to speed the line along. After three hours of waiting, and catching a glimpse at an amiibo-enabled Wolf Link companion, our group finally handed in our literal golden tickets and entered the Zelda wonderland for a brief trailer and access to the game. After a 30-45 minute demo, I took in the sights of the faux forest, picked up my swag, checked out the life-size statues, and really started processing how fun the game felt to play and poke at. It must really have been good since the wait didn’t poison the experience for me.I walked away from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild extremely hopeful. But after the ordeal of getting to play it in the first place, I was also happy just to walk away. Maybe it’s for the best this is the only thing Nintendo is showing at E3 2016. It was pretty wild.last_img read more
