Availability of credit and timely clearance of goods at ports to help

first_imgNew Delhi: The government should take six concrete steps such as reducing cost and time of port clearance for goods and enhancing availability of credit with a view to boost exports, TPCI said Sunday. Suggesting the six point agenda to push exports, Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI) said identifying new product basket which can easily find world market would have inherent advantage over India’s global competitors. Besides, it asked for promotion of Indian products to new and emerging markets creating a national portal for global trade inquires and providing incentives to exporters based on their performances.

The logistic cost per kilometer of road transport for India is high as compared to China, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Sri Lanka, he said. “The custom and port clearance takes six days for India, 1.5 days for China, six days for Vietnam and three days for Sri Lanka,” he said.

Calling for external outreach and promotion of Indian products to new and emerging markets, he said, India could utilise 80 trade promotion offices for promotion of various products and brands. He added that in terms of products, processed food alone has huge scope after value addition and can fetch forex exchange. On phasing out subsidies for exports, he said, the government need a cautious view to deal with this matter as the buyers also negotiate and demands some part of the subsidy. Since 2011-12, India’s exports have been hovering at around $300 billion. During 2018-19, the shipments aggregated at $331 billion.

Latest dead North Atlantic right whale off Canadas coast believed to be

first_imgFREDERICTON — The latest dead North Atlantic right whale spotted in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is believed to be a large female.Fisheries and Oceans Canada says the whale was spotted northeast of the Iles-de-la-Madeleine on Thursday.Fishery officers were able to install a satellite tag to track the carcass.Tonya Wimmer, executive director of the Marine Animal Response Society, says bad weather — including strong winds — over the next few days will complicate getting the whale to shore for a necropsy to establish the cause of death.The latest discovery, the second this year, came the same day a study was published finding more than half of the 70 known North Atlantic right whale deaths over the last 16 years were caused by entanglement in fishing gear or vessel collisions.A nine-year-old male right whale was found dead off the coast of New Brunswick this month, but preliminary necropsy results were inconclusive.There are estimated to be about 410 North Atlantic right whales left in the ocean.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Off Beat Playing organ like flying a B52 bomber

first_imgHistoric pipe organs are marvels, said Tim Nickel.As organist at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas Episcopal Church in Vancouver, he fills the sanctuary during Sunday services with musical majesty.The mechanical process of air flowing through pipes in a Johann Sebastian Bach fugue is truly marvelous.But there’s another side to it. Some organs, and the churches where they were installed, have inspired the faithful for centuries.Nickel and his wife, Nancy LeRoi-Nickel, contributed to some of that spirit during their own recitals in Europe. The highest-profile performance was in August 2015, when the Nickels were invited to play a duet recital at the cathedral in Orleans, France.“That’s Joan of Arc’s home town,” he noted. The hosts made the Nickels feel at home.“They gave us the key to the organ loft so we could adapt our material to the program.” Historic organs are all different, he said. “And since two organists are playing one instrument, we had to figure a way to accomplish that with four hands and four feet.”The Orleans organ is a relative newcomer to the cathedral, which has origins going back a thousand years. The organ was made in the 19th century by Aristide Cavaille-Coll. He actually was a contemporary of W.K. Adams, who made the organ Nickel plays at St. Luke’s ~ San Lucas.“Cavaille-Coll organs are particularly prized. They’re considered the highest achievement of French Romantic style,” said Nickel, who called the performance “an experience of a lifetime.”Despite the magnificent surroundings, the Nickels had to stay on task.“When you’re performing, you’re completely focused on the music. You’re not aware of the audience,” he said. (Even though the crowd of more than 700 was the biggest audience he’s ever had.)last_img read more

Outgoing Chief Justice Handed Down Ruling of a Controversial Case

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Misick & Hanchell question allegations going global Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 30 Sept 2014 – Before demitting office, the outgoing Chief Justice handed down a ruling in a controversial case… and now McCallister Hanchell, the former government minister for land, is commanded to pay up. Yesterday, Magnetic Media learned that Akita Holdings lost this second round with the Attorney General’s Chambers when former chief justice Edwin Goldsborough ruled that Hanchell and his brother got the land for Akita Holdings Ltd way below value, knowingly trying to dupe the government of monies owed. Akita Holdings was ordered to not only pay the balance on the land’s current value, but to pay back rent at around $2,500 and to pay the government’s legal fees for the civil recovery case. That’s nearly 70% for the property, which is now home to their Caicos Oil company. But Hanchell vows to appeal the decision… reminding that with Ariel Missick of Missick and Stanbrook as his attorney, they won the claims case in the Supreme Court already; that this victory for the AG comes on appeal. McAllister Hanchell, aka as Piper believes this retrial was a waste of public funds, that the AG appeared lost in her presentation and explained that he too plans to appeal.

LGBT discrimination claims still not valid in Alaska despite federal ruling

first_imgThe U.S. Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission ruled in late July that sexual orientation discrimination in the workplace is illegal because it is a form of sex discrimination, which is already prohibited.Download AudioSome of the most common types of discrimination LGBT people face are in the workplace and in housing. Despite this, Alaska’s statewide and Anchorage anti-discrimination commissions don’t offer protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender people. The commissions are not legally required to do so, and some activists see that as an injustice.“Just imagine if you couldn’t call the fire department because you were LGBT. I mean, that’s an analogy to make. If you are LGBT you should be able to call any state agency and get the same service,” says attorney Caitlin Shortell. She represented the same-sex couples that sued the state for the right to marry. “I mean this is an injustice that needs to be corrected.”The Rainbow Flag is a symbol of LGBT pride. (Creative Commons photo by torbakhopper)In December, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice would treat gender identity as protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.In early February, the U.S. EEOC Director of Field Programs sent a memo saying that complaints of discrimination based on gender identity should also be accepted under the Civil Rights Act. Federal and state employees already have these workplace protections.And late last month, the federal commission ruled in a 4-2 vote that sexual orientation discrimination in the workplace was illegal, too.But the Alaska State Commission for Human Rights and the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission refer LGBT discrimination complainants to a toll free number for the federal EEOC.When I called the toll-free number, I was directed through nearly three minutes of call options. To speak with a federal EEOC employee, on one particular day the wait was approximately 60 minutes.Both the state and Anchorage commissions have work-sharing agreements with the EEOC and receive a portion of their budget from the federal agency. However, the funding does not require commissions to enforce civil rights laws as the EEOC interprets them.“There’s a basis and a duty to already be taking these complaints and the commission should be doing that, without even amending our state and municipal human rights law,” Shortell said.In initial interview requests for this story, the commission’s directors — Paula Haley for the state and Pamela Basler for Anchorage — both refused to be recorded and would not answer questions directly. Neither director responded to subsequent interview requests.Gov. Bill Walker says he “[doesn’t] like any form of discrimination, at all.”But disliking discrimination doesn’t mean he’s willing to change up the state commission members and director, who serve at his pleasure.“At this point we don’t intend to address this issue. That shouldn’t be a surprise,” Walker said.Walker says his administration will not introduce legislation on this issue or any other social issue. He says he’s not reviewed the priorities of the state’s human rights commissioners or the commission’s executive director.“I don’t want to be judgmental about what the Human Rights Commission is or isn’t doing, but I will say that we are working on that issue ourselves,” Walker said. “It’s come up in the past, the issue of them having some venue to report, record circumstances where they feel they have been discriminated against.”In an earlier written statement the governor said he’d leave it to the commission to decide whether to accept LGBT discrimination complaints, or complaints from any other class.In other words, the state commission is actively choosing to not provide coverage.Only two of the seven board members on the state Human Rights Commission could be contacted. Although neither would agree to be recorded, one stated that discussion surrounding LGBT discrimination protections has only come up a few times in the past few years.The federal EEOC canceled an interview and declined to reschedule. In a written statement, an agency spokeswoman says neither the state or Anchorage commissions are required to accept claims that they don’t have jurisdiction over. And jurisdiction is based on their own assessment of the law, independent of the EEOC’s positions.In an interview with KYUK’s Elllie Coggins in May, state commission director Paula Haley didn’t include LGBT people in her organization’s duties.“So we have a very broad area of coverage and we protect people from discrimination based on race, sex, disability, age, marital status, so there’s a lot of coverage. Pretty much everyone in Alaska is protected by our laws,” Haley said.Later in the interview, Haley said most of the complaints the agency receives deal with employment discrimination—a type of discrimination transgender people are most at risk for, according to a 2012 Anchorage survey on LGBT issues.In a previous story for KTOO, Paula Haley said she’s only seen a handful of cases over the years.“Very few people contact us because they’re concerned about discrimination based on lesbian, gay, transgender, queer issues, because they know we don’t cover those. So they don’t reach out to us because we don’t have the ability to help them.”In the Human Rights Campaign’s 100-point 2014 Municipal Equality Index,Anchorage scored the highest at 35, Juneau at 33 and Fairbanks the lowest at 24.Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz says he, “everyone who lives in Anchorage has equal protection under the law.”But later in the interview, Berkowitz said he was unsure of how the Anchorage commission currently handles these complaints and didn’t mention any specific plans to address the issue.last_img read more

Physical copies of Fallout 4 on PC require a download to be

first_imgIt’s very clear to everyone who plays games that games publishers continue to not understand piracy. Bethesda is a case in point, having just confirmed that if you purchase a physical copy of Fallout 4 for PC it won’t be playable until you download part of the game via Steam.Purchasing Fallout 4 for consoles sees the entire game ship on a Blu-ray and ready to play. However, for PC Bethesda took the decision to ship only some of the game data on a DVD along with a Steam code. Installing the game requires you use the Steam code for activation and then download the rest of the game.Pete Hines, Bethesda’s vice president of marketing, confirmed this was the case on his personal Twitter account. When asked why the PC version was restricted in this way, Hines answer was a simple one: “piracy.” He also pointed out Bethesda has been using this tactic “for 10+ years” and “Lots of people bought Skyrim, Wolf, etc”I believe Hines has got this completely backwards. Gamers purchase Bethesda’s titles because they want to play them and are happy to pay for them despite such annoyances as requiring data downloads to prove you have paid and are installing a legitimate copy. Using such a system in no way limits piracy, in fact, it means the inevitable pirate copies of Fallout 4 that do appear end up having an advantage over the legitimate version: no data downloads required to make them playable.So, for legal purchasers of Fallout 4 on PC, Bethesda would like to make you aware that the disc you are buying does not contain the full game, and in order to play you are required to download the rest. Thanks Bethesda.last_img read more

Volcano erupts on southern Japanese island

first_img Comments   Share   Japan, which sits atop the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” has dozens of volcanoes and is frequently jolted by earthquakes.In March 2011, a magnitude 9 earthquake rocked northeastern Japan, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 18,500 people and ravaged much of the northern Pacific coast.Authorities recently closed part of a popular hot springs about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Tokyo because of fears Mount Hakone, which sits to the southeast of Mount Fuji, might erupt.The eruption last September of another volcano, Mount Ontake in central Japan, killed 57 people.Setsuya Nakada, a professor at Tokyo University, told NHK that the eruption on Kuchinoerabu was stronger than Mount Ontake’s.Since the 2011 disasters, “this sort of activity has continued,” Nakada said, when asked if more eruptions were likely on the island. “Probably the eruptions will continue.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Check your body, save your life Top Stories A military helicopter was sent to survey the island and assess damage. Chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga told reporters in Tokyo that the Coast Guard had dispatched a ship to help evacuate the residents.Nobuaki Hayashi, a local village chief, said about 120 of the island’s 137 residents were gathered at a local evacuation facility.“There was a really loud, ‘dong’ sound of an explosion, and then black smoke rose, darkening the sky,” he told the national broadcaster NHK. “It smelled of sulfur.”Hayashi said a few people on the island were still unaccounted for. One person, who lives in an area that is generally off-limits, was to be evacuated by boat as he could not travel safely to the shelter by land.“The skies here are blue, but smoke is still rising to the west,” he said.Kuchinoerabu is 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of the main southern island of Kyushu. A heavily forested, mountainous island bordered mostly by rocky cliffsides, it is a national park supported mainly by tourism and fishing.Footage from NHK showed the mountain shrouded in light gray ash as the clouds from the eruption cleared.Kuchinoerabu usually can be reached only by a once-a-day ferry from Yakushima island, 12 kilometers (about 7 miles) to the east, which has an airport and a population of more than 13,000 people.

(Photo by Vianney Le Caer/Invision/AP) by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted May 25, 2019 5:30 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Cannes to present Palme d’Or, with history on the line CANNES, France — History could be made when the top award of the Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or, is handed out Saturday.The Palme d’Or is decided by a nine-person jury, headed this year by the filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu. Their deliberations are done in secret, so what will win is always a guessing game.But milestone victories could occur if some of the festival’s most acclaimed films were to win. If French director Celine Sciamma’s period love story “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” won, it would be the first time a female filmmaker has won the Palme d’Or outright. Sciamma’s movie, about two women in 18th century France, has been hailed as feminist masterpiece.The only previous female director to win the prestigious Palme d’Or in the festival’s 72-year history was Jane Campion in 1993 for “The Piano.” She tied with Chen Kaige’s “Farewell My Concubine.” The only other time a woman has won the Palme d’Or was in 2013 when the award for “Blue Is the Warmest Color” was shared between director Abdellatif Kechiche and actresses Leya Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos.Sciamma is a 40-year-old writer-director who helped found 50/50X2020, France’s version of Time’s Up. She said in an interview that a Palme win for “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” would be a larger victory for women.“It would mean a lot for a lot of people,” she said. “That would be the most important.”Pedro Almodovar could make personal history by winning the Palme for “Pain and Glory.” Though he’s been one of Europe’s pre-eminent filmmakers for decades, the 69-year-old Spanish director has never won Cannes’ top award despite being in the running five times before. “Pain and Glory,” a self-reflective drama starring Antonio Banderas as a fictionalized version of Almodovar, was received as the filmmaker’s best work in years.Also in the mix is Bong Joon-ho’s class satire “Parasite,” about a poor family of hustlers who find jobs with a wealthy family. Two years ago, Bong was in Cannes’ competition with “Okja,” a movie distributed in North America by Netflix. After it and Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories” (also a Netflix release) premiered in Cannes, the festival ruled that all films in competition needed French theatrical distribution. Netflix has since withdrawn from the festival.A win for “Parasite” would mark the first Korean film to ever win the Palme d’Or.Last year’s awards in Cannes saw Hirokazu Kore-eda’s “Shoplifters” triumph and Italian director Asia Argento declare from the stage: “I was raped by Harvey Weinstein. The festival was his hunting ground.” Weinstein, who has denied sexually assaulting Argento, was for decades a prominent presence in Cannes, which has had its struggles in adapting to the post-MeToo era.This year, bowing to pressure from 5050×2020, the festival released gender breakdowns of its submissions and selections. Cannes said about 27 per cent of its official selections were directed by women. The 21-film main slate included four films directed by women, which ties the festival’s previous high. Mati Diop, the French-Senegalese director, became the first black woman in competition in Cannes with her feature debut “Atlantics.”The 72nd Cannes has had its share of red-carpet dazzle, too. Elton John brought his biopic “Rocketman” to the festival, joining star Taron Egerton for a beachside duet after the premiere. And Quentin Tarantino unveiled his 1960s Los Angeles tale “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, 25 years after the director’s “Pulp Fiction” won the Palme d’Or.Tarantino is holding out hope that he might win again. His movie did on Friday win the annual Palme Dog, an award given by critics to the festival’s most memorable canine. Pitt’s character has a loyal pit bull in the film.“We will see what we will see,” said Tarantino, accepting the award Friday. “But at least I won’t go home empty handed.”___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPJake Coyle, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Whistleblower Efimova applies for asylum

first_imgMaria Efimova, the former Pilatus Bank employee and source of the slain Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, said that she has applied for political asylum in an unspecified European Union country.“I have myself made an application for political asylum in the country where I am, and I just asked from the PANA Committee members to provide me with a letter, a letter of opinion so on their view I can be considered as a whistle-blower,” she told Manuel Delia, a Maltese journalist and blogger in an interview on Wednesday.The interview with Efimova’s comments appeared on Wednesday on Delia’s blog, a day after it emerged that Cypriot authorities had issued an arrest warrant against her and her husband after a complaint filed against her by I.D.F. Fragrance Distribution LTd, one of her former employers.The members of the European Parliament’s committee, which looks into money laundering “confirmed” that she was a whistle-blower, Efimova added. “I filed this letter together with an application,” she said.Efimova, a Russian national, worked at Malta’s Pilatus Bank, the lender which reportedly facilitated suspicious transactions by Egrant Inc., a Panamanian firm that Cuarana Galizia reported in April belonged to Michelle Muscat, the wife of Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. Egrant reportedly received funds from the daughter of Azerbaijan’s president Ilham Aliyev.On Thursday, a police source in Cyprus said Cypriot authorities recently secured a court order to issue a “European and International” arrest warrant against Efimova, a mother of two, in connection with an alleged embezzlement case at a Limassol-based firm, where she worked until 2014. Precondition for the issue of a such a warrant is that the person in question faces a possible prison term of more than a year, the source said.In a previous interview, Efimova denied any wrongdoing and said that the complaint filed by a director of Fragrance Distribution Ltd was an attempt to discredit her.Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Maria Gomes, who led a delegation visiting Malta six weeks ago, asked the national authorities of European Union member states in a letter dated December 13, to either grant asylum or international protection to Efimova since “she is at serious risk”.Gomes, a Portuguese MEP and member of the Socialist group, said on Wednesday in an email that she was unaware of Efimova’s whereabouts and whether she was “sufficiently protected,” hence she wrote the letter.Efimova said in a recent interview to the Cyprus Business Mail that she had to abandon Malta in August fearing she would have a similar fate as Caruana Galizia, who was killed in a car bomb attack on October 16.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndoGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
