Cyclone Fani leaves 12 dead in Odisha relief work underway

first_imgBhubaneswar: A day after cyclonic storm ‘Fani’ ravaged parts of Odisha, killing at least 12 people, a massive restoration and relief work was launched on war-footing Saturday across 10,000 villages and urban areas, officials said. The extremely severe cyclonic storm, which made landfall at Puri on Friday, unleashed copious rain and windstorm that gusted up to 200 kmph, blowing away thatched roofs of houses, swamped towns and villages, before weakening and entering West Bengal, they said.

All the four people were killed after uprooted trees fell on them at different places in Baripada, the emergency officer of Mayurbhanj district, S K Pati, said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and discussed the prevailing situation in the aftermath of the cyclone’s landfall in the coastal state.

Assured continuous support from the Central Government … The entire nation stands in solidarity with all those affected by the cyclone in different parts,” Modi said in a tweet. Though the “extremely severe” cyclone weakened into a “very severe” cyclonic storm in a few hours, it flattened houses with thatched roofs and kutcha houses, uprooted scores of trees, electric poles and mobile towers in coastal Odisha, with the seaside pilgrim town of Puri being the worst hit. Patnaik, after reviewing the situation on Friday night, had said that Puri district suffered huge damage. “Energy infrastructure has been completely destroyed. Restoration of electricity is a challenging task,” he had said. Hundreds of engineers and technicians are working to restore power supply, the officials said. Work is on to restore road communication, thrown into disarray with thousands of uprooted trees blocking the way in innumerable places, Patnaik said. Men and machinery of the NDRF, the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force (ODRAF) and fire services swung into action and launched a massive restoration work to bring back normalcy, Special Relief Commissioner (SRC), B P Sethi, said. Odisha Energy Secretary Hemanth Sharma said around 30 lakh power consumers have been affected by the cyclone, which threw electricity distribution infrastructure out of gear in most coastal districts. Restoration work is on in full swing, he said. In Bhubaneswar city itself, over 10,000 electric poles have been uprooted or broken, he said, adding, efforts are on to restore power supply in 25 per cent crucial sectors such as the airport, the railway station and hospitals. Another 25 per cent work will be completed on Sunday and efforts are on to restore complete normalcy at the earliest, Sharma said. The power network had been severely damaged in districts such as Puri, Khurda, Ganjam, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara and Balasore. The Quick Action Team (QRT) of the premier naval training establishment, INS Chilka, was immediately deployed to provide emergency assistance in cutting and clearing trees in some areas, said an official. A naval Dornier aircraft carried out aerial survey and found extensive damaged to vegetation in many places around Puri. Large-scale water inundation was observed in many places, particularly in low-lying areas between Puri and Chilka lake, he said. The chief minister said nearly 12 lakh people were evacuated and shifted to safer locations from about 10,000 villages and 52 urban agglomerations, 24 hours ahead of the cyclone, “probably the largest such exercise at the time of a natural calamity in the country”. The evacuees have been accommodated in over 4,000 shelters, including 880 specially-designed cyclone centres, he said. Cooked food is being served to them for free. The cyclone, after the landfall, passed through Khurda, Cuttack, Jajpur, Bhadrak and Balasore before entering West Bengal, the SRC said, adding, Bhubaneswar city was hit by high velocity winds of around 140 kmph. Telecommunication lines got snapped in several parts of the state capital and other areas. Summer crops, orchards and plantations also suffered huge damage, he said. Around 220 trains on the Howrah-Chennai route have been cancelled in view of passengers’ safety, an East Coast Railway (ECoR) official said.last_img read more

Annan discusses Middle East Iran Darfur in talks with national ministers

In a meeting lasting more than 40 minutes with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Mr. Annan underscored the need for Israel and the international community to support and strengthen the Palestinian Authority as it takes full control of the Gaza strip following Israel’s withdrawal. “This includes providing the Palestinian people with a political horizon as the peace process moves forward,” a UN press statement on the meeting said. It noted that Mr. Sharon told Mr. Annan Israel’s withdrawal would provide momentum for a furtherance of the peace process and stressed that the Palestinian Authority now had a responsibility to stabilize the situation in Gaza and prevent acts of terror against Israel. The Israeli leader said he was committed to the Road Map plan drawn up by the diplomatic Quartet – UN, European Union, Russia and United States – which calls for a series of parallel steps leading to two states living side-by-side in peace, originally by the end of this year. Mr. Annan noted the professionalism shown by the Israeli army and police during the disengagement process, and the two men also discussed ways in which Israeli expertise on agricultural and development issues, notably in combating desertification, could be used through the UN system to help developing countries. In a later meeting Mr. Annan told Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Nasser al-Kidwa that the Gaza disengagement was an important opportunity and he hoped that it would be a step forward towards the full resumption of peace talks. He stressed the importance of moving back to the Road Map. Mr. Al-Kidwa replied that the Palestinians realized the disengagement was an important opportunity for them but stressed that it would be impossible to solve all of Gaza’s economic, political and security problems without further movement forward in the West Bank as well. He expressed strong support for the work of Quartet Special Envoy James Wolfensohn, entrusted with coordinating the withdrawal from Gaza and the economic and social transition there, and noted the importance of moving forward with all points on Mr. Wolfensohn agenda. Mr. Annan also met with Indian Foreign Minister K. Natwar Singh and the two men discussed Iran and the nuclear issue as well as the possibility of achieving UN reforms in the current General Assembly session with particular focus on Security Council expansion. Iran’s nuclear programme has been a matter of concern since 2003, when the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) determined that the country had for almost two decades concealed its nuclear activities in breach of its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful energy production but some countries, including the United States, say is part of an effort to produce nuclear weapons. On Security Council expansion India, along with Germany, Japan and Brazil, was a member of the so-called G-4 that expressed their desire during the lead-up to last week UN World Summit to become permanent members. Mr. Annan also held talks today with Sudanese Foreign Minister Mustafa Osman Ismail. The two agreed on the urgent need for a political settlement in Darfur, where tens of thousands of people are estimated to have died and more than 2 million others have been displaced since a conflict erupted in 2003 between the Government, allied militias and rebels seeking a greater share of economic development. They discussed the implementation of a comprehensive peace agreement and Mr. Annan assured the minister that the UN intended to assist in the implementation of the agreement “over the long haul,” the statement said. read more

With awards in tow Ohio State footballs Braxton Miller still focused on

Nearly three months after his sophomore season ended, Braxton Miller is still being praised for what he accomplished in 2012. At Ohio State’s men’s basketball game against Northwestern Thursday, the quarterback received his Big Ten Player of the Year trophy on the court amid a standing ovation from the crowd during a media timeout in the first half. Miller, smiling, held the Silver Football, courtesy of the Chicago Tribune, high above his head for all the people in attendance at the Schottenstein Center to see. Miller enjoys the recognition. It humbles him. The trophies and cheers help Miller realize how his hard work – and that from the rest of his team – can pay off. “I’m just thankful for all the things I can do out (on the field) and receive awards like this,” Miller said, moments before accepting his trophy while wearing a black T-shirt, black sweatpants and red Nikes. “It’s a blessing.” Miller, though, would much rather focus on the present and what lies ahead of him. His mind is dead set on preparing for the 2013 season. At the forefront of that emphasis are the dual-threat signal caller’s fundamentals. “I had bad mechanics last year,” Miller said. “I want to focus on it this year.” To better his footwork and throwing motion, Miller traveled west over OSU’s winter break to work with San Diego-based coach George Whitfield Jr. The quarterback guru – who has helped notable NFL gunslingers Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck, along with 2012 Heisman winner Johnny Manziel – trained Miller on the beaches of California. Part of those workout sessions centered around “chaos mechanics.” When a play breaks down, Miller said he needs to be just as fundamentally sound as he would be in a standard three-step drop. “You got to keep your composure and just keep your mind on your mechanics and it gets you through it,” Miller said. “I’m just getting comfortable right now.” If Miller, who set a school-record for total yards in 2012 with 3,310 during the Buckeyes’ 12-0 season, can better the small details of his game, 2013 could be a Heisman season for OSU’s signal caller. Consistency will be the key for the Big Ten’s most heralded offensive threat. “When he’s good, he’s really good, and when he’s bad, he’s bad. We need him to be really good more often,” said OSU offensive coordinator Tom Herman Thursday. “His good is really, really stinking good and he just needs to continue working on the consistency of it, because he’s capable of that.” Miller will have some new skill-players to work with in 2013. The Buckeyes signed multiple high-level prospects that helped OSU attain one of the top-three recruiting classes in the country this winter. When asked if he is excited to play with the new talents, Miller grinned widely and replied, “Heck yeah.” On-the-field skills aren’t the only aspect of his game that Miller is working on during the offseason.  OSU’s players are currently in a no-contact period with their coaches. Players are holding lifting sessions and position-centered workouts on their own. Miller might be one of the Buckeyes who is taking on a significant leadership role during this time. “Every year, you’ve got to be a leader and just push the team and we got to start up from what we did last year,” Miller said. Coming off a record-setting and undefeated year, expectations are quite high for Miller and the Buckeyes heading into next season. Miller is at the head of nearly all preseason Heisman lists. OSU finds itself ranked in the top-5 of all the early poll projections. The Buckeyes’ playmaker said he wouldn’t have it any other way. Miller will keep on working and preparing as he always has. “No change, been this way my whole life,” Miller said. read more

Provo Airport handling hundreds of tourists on Saturdays – officials say it

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Related Items:flight, houston, Michel Nuetelings, Portia smith, provo international airport, ralph higgs Road Show delegation starts in the Western USA Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 05 Jun 2015 – Houston’s inaugural flight landed on Saturday at the Provo International, but stealing the thunder of that new commute was the hundreds of visitors arriving almost simultaneously for their TCI vacations. As many as nine airliners were on the ground Saturday and it seemed the International Arrivals area was going to burst at its seams with so many visitors getting in to Providenciales at one time. Saturday is the busiest day for the country’s gateway – Providenciales International Airport – and as hundreds filed in to be processed by Immigration, collect their bags at the one baggage carousel and file through Customs – it seemed an awful mess, but Lavern Reynolds, Terminal and Marketing Manager with the TCI Airports Authority assured things were under control. “I don’t think it is overwhelming. I think it is one of those things whereby we have to put all of our ducks in a row; we have other partners that we are working along with which is Customs, as well as Immigration and the airlines and the other entities within the airport itself. I think it’s wonderful for us to be able to keep busy and give them work pretty much, all year round. So I think it keeps us on our toes because you might get a bit relaxed in the off season and then you have to speed things up for the winter season; this way you keep yourself at a very busy pace, all year round.”Ralph Higgs, Tourist Board Director, was pleased with the processing speed of TCI Border Control but said, there is some work to be done.“Today is clearly a very busy day. A very impressive eight or nine jets are on their airport at the same time, I think that speaks to a lot of positive things but it also speaks to situations that we must internally address as quickly as we can. Sometimes success can present challenges and we are very cognizant of that, and we will continue grow as we try to mitigate the challenges that growth brings.”There was reportedly a disgruntled guest who posted a long waiting time on the arrivals side in Provo on social media; but President of the Hotel & Tourism Association, Michel Nuetelings said there have been no complaints officially. “It would be better if they were spaced out, but I think we the airport expansion things are a lot smoother than they used to be and I think everyone is putting in every single effort possible to make it work. Now you always have a few people who may complain about it but I think we know how to turn those around in our hotels and in the various services they get to, they know how to turn that around and make sure people leave here with a memorable experience.”It was unknown what the average processing time per guest family is at the PIA. Later, hear what Minister of Tourism, Porsha Smith and other delegates had to say about that inaugural flight from Houston which touched down Saturday in Provo.

Icy Strait Point to add megaship dock as Hoonah readies for hundreds

first_imgExecutives from Norwegian Cruise Lines visited Hoonah to participate in the groundbreaking of a second cruise dock designed for the company’s two megaships deployed to Alaska.Senior Vice President Howard Sherman says that Hoonah’s beautiful setting and thriving Alaska Native culture is what convinced his corporation to invest.“You can’t buy that authenticity,” Sherman told the dozens of school children, elders and community members assembled at the site. “You can’t build it, you can’t put it in a T-shirt shop, you can’t put it in a jewelry store so we are so excited and so honored to be a part of this and I thank you.”Tlingit elders blessed the site and retold the story of the town’s founding. Two centuries ago, their ancestor’s village was displaced by advancing glaciers in what’s now Glacier Bay National Park.As Frigid winds blew in from the northwest, elders interpreted it as a sign of approval from the village’s ancestors.Hoonah elder Kenny Grant says there are deep ties to the forested uplands that  will be the site of a cruise ship dock starting next year.“To us this land has a spirit,” Gray said as elders murmured “Gunalchéesh” approvingly. “And we’re going to treat it properly.”The 500-foot floating dock project is a partnership between Norwegian Cruise Lines and Huna Totem, the community’s village corporation. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed. The arrangement is possible because the city approved a 25-year lease for the project.Hoonah community members Bill Wilson, Kenny Grant and Heather Powell hold a traditional Tlingit ground blessing for the site of a second cruise ship dock being built in partnership with Norwegian Cruise Lines and Huna Totem Corporation. (Photo by Jacob Resneck/CoastAlaska/pkg)The name “Hoonah” doesn’t appear on cruise ship schedules. On promotional maps it’s Icy Strait Point that passengers will visit. That’s the result of shrewd marketing by Huna Totem Corporation, which transformed a defunct seafood cannery into a seasonal entertainment complex. Since 2004 it’s expanded rapidly and now features a zip line, rope course, restaurant and brewery.A controversial purpose-built cruise dock at Icy Strait Point was added in 2015. This second dock will be about a half-mile further from town, creating a tourist exclave away from downtown Hoonah.Early on, cruise visitors numbered in the thousands. But this season will bring a projected 267,000 passengers on 137 ships.The second dock adds even more capacity with 192 ships scheduled to call in Hoonah. By next year some 408,000 cruise ship passengers are expected making the small community among the top Alaska cruise destinations of Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.That makes some Hoonah elders at the ceremony uneasy.“You see our town’s only 800 people. So you get 5,000 people on this ship and 5,000 people on that ship — that’s 10,000 people,” said Stuart Mills, who works as a seasonal bear viewing guide.This forested area a half-mile from Hoonah’s Icy Strait Point will be the site of a 500-foot floating dock to accommodate Norwegian Cruise Lines megaships visiting Hoonah. (Photo by Jacob Resneck/CoastAlaska)He’s worried that bringing in too many people could dilute what Hoonah has to offer.“We’re going to have buses running everywhere and people running everywhere,” Mills said. “It might of kinda hinder us because of the fact that won’t have enough excursions for all the people to do what they want to when they come here.”The village corporation is mindful that feelings are mixed here. But it’s difficult to gauge public sentiment. When the project was announced in December, the village corporation said it would hold public meetings in the winter. That didn’t happen.Huna Totem CEO Russell Dick said Wednesday he still plans to do public outreach later in the year. And he told an assemblage of community members in Icy Strait Point’s restaurant that history won’t judge his organization by its profits.“Because if it did, we’re no better than any other company out there,” Dick told community members. “But I do truly believe that history will judge us on whether we create those economic opportunities for our shareholders and whether or not we ensure a vibrant and strong culture as we go forward.”The first of 137 cruise ship visits to Icy Strait Point is scheduled on May 9. Icy Strait Point is an Alaska Native-themed entertainment complex built on the outskirts of Hoonah by the community’s village corporation. It projects to receive 267,000 cruise visitors this season. (Photos by Jacob Resneck/CoastAlaska)Hoonah’s Icy Strait Point is positioning itself as one of Alaska’s top cruise ship destinations. Roughly one in three cruise ship tourists will visit the entertainment complex on the outskirts of the small Southeast community next year.last_img read more

Merkel seeks way out of crisis after talks collapse

first_imgGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel reacts as she attends a session of the Bundestag in Berlin. ReutersGermany’s president was to lead a push from Tuesday to save the EU’s top economy from the political turmoil sparked by the collapse of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition talks.Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who takes centre stage because he can call snap elections, was to use his diplomatic skills as former foreign minister to persuade parties to return to the negotiating table.The head of state, who has spoken with Merkel already, plans to meet the Greens Tuesday and the Social Democrats (SPD) Wednesday, and also schedule talks with the Free Democrats (FDP), to remind all sides of their responsibility toward the electorate.“Germans are not natural fans of instability, minority governments or immediate repeat elections, to put it mildly,” said Berenberg Bank chief economist Holger Schmieding.After the shock failure of the month-long coalition talks, “we now have to watch the reaction of the various parties and their political bases”, he wrote in a note.Merkel, in power for 12 years, now serves only as caretaker chancellor after she failed to win a clear majority in the September 24 elections, largely due to the rise of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.Her problems were compounded when the second-placed SPD, after humiliating ballot box losses, refused to serve another term as her junior coalition partners and vowed to go into opposition.A subsequent four-week negotiating marathon to forge a new governing alliance with two smaller parties, the pro-business FDP and the left-leaning Greens, collapsed when the FDP pulled out early Monday in a shock move.Although financial markets, after initial dips, quickly digested the news, Germany’s political world was stunned by the first such debacle in the usually staid politics of the country’s post-war era.‘Deep uncertainty’ -Steinmeier, the mainly ceremonial head of state, in a televised address implored all mainstream parties to rethink their positions and be mindful of their responsibility, including his own SPD.Underlining the duty of lawmakers, Steinmeier noted: “We have before us an unprecedented situation in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany, that is, in the last 70 years.”“The mandate to form a government is … perhaps the highest mandate given by voters to a party in a democracy,” he said.SPD chairman Martin Schulz was, however, quick to reiterate that the labour party was “not available to form a new grand coalition” with Merkel’s conservatives, vastly complicating the picture.Germany now faces weeks, if not months, of paralysis with a lame-duck government that is unlikely to take bold policy action at home or on the European stage.“The politics of Europe’s most powerful economy-and until recently its main anchor of stability-has just entered a period of deep uncertainty,” said Eurasia Group, a political risk consultancy.Merkel had been spared very harsh criticism because it was FDP chief Christian Lindner who ended the talks and sparked the chaos, in hopes of gaining “greater bargaining power in a fresh election”, it said.Merkel stressed Monday that she favours running in new elections, which likely wouldn’t be held before February, to the shaky proposition of trying to govern with a parliamentary minority.The FDP’s shock move, most commentators agreed, left only losers-with the exception of the anti-immigration AfD, which relished the chaos and said it proved “Merkel has failed”.The general secretary of Merkel’s Bavarian sister party the CSU, Andreas Scheuer, demanded that the SPD “stop sulking” and think seriously about joining a new “grand coalition” government.But this is a long-shot hope, given the SPD’s determination to recover its fighting spirit from the opposition benches.Fresh elections could be the only way out but, according to opinion polls now, may lead to a similar outcome rather than a game-changing result, spelling mainly the risk of boosting the extremist parties at the fringes.last_img read more

Dell XPS 13 2019 Heres What We Really Want

first_imgThe Dell XPS 13 (9370) has been our best laptop for all of 2018, which is saying a lot because there were plenty of great machines released this year. Despite a wave of strong competitors, nothing quite matched this ultraportable’s premium design, stunning edge-to-edge display, beefy performance and long battery life. Dell XPS 13 Gets Intel Whiskey Lake and Ditches the NosecamAfter making its smallest webcam ever and adding an Intel Whiskey Lake CPU, the Dell XPS 13 is ready for primetime.Volume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?03:46关闭选项Automated Captions – en-US facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/dell-xps-13-2019-preview?jwsource=cl已复制自动 1080p720p406p270p180p正在加载广告直播00:0002:1502:15Your Recommended Playlist03:46MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?02:01Apple’s Mac & iPad Pro Event: 5 Things You Need To Know01:30How to Use VLOOKUP in Excel01:30Best & Worst Laptop Brands 201901:34How to Reset a Windows 10 PC01:32How to Turn Your Windows 10 PC into a Wireless Display01:25How to Freeze Rows in Excel关闭  And yet, there is definitely room for improvement on Dell’s flagship laptop. Here’s what we’d like to see on the 2019 version of the Dell XPS 13.Dell XPS 13 2019: Release date and priceLast year Dell unveiled the XPS 13 during CES 2018 in January, and we expect the new model to launch during the same time frame this year. As for how much you’ll pay, the current XPS 13 9370 starts at $949 for a Core i5 model. There was a  cheaper Core i3-powered version that started at $849, but that’s not currently not available. Expect the 2019 XPS 13 price to be in the same ballpark.Our XPS 13 2019 Wish ListNo more nose webcamAdvertisementAt first, we totally understood the trade-off. In order to achieve such minimal bezels around the InfinityEdge display, Dell decided to place the webcam underneath the screen. But the resulting placement means that other people are forced to look at your chin and up your nose during video calls.Dell clearly needs to devise a design that retains the edge-to-edge screen while putting the webcam in the right spot. There are a number of ways to accomplish this goal, including designing a smaller camera or perhaps putting a small punch hole in the screen where the camera resides, similar to what Samsung is reportedly attempting with the Galaxy S10 phone.Whatever Dell decides to do, it is now time to make a change.A full-size USB A port?The Dell XPS 13’s slim 0.46-inch profile houses two Thunderbolt 3 ports on the right and a USB-C port and microSD Card slot on the left along with a headphone jack. That’s it. So if you want to plug in a peripheral that uses a regular USB-A port, you’re out of luck.We’d be willing to live with a slightly thicker design on the XPS 13 if it meant having to schlepp around less dongles. But you shouldn’t hold your breath for such a design change.Whiskey Lake processorsThis one is a no-brainer. The XPS 13 9370 is powered by Intel’s 8th-gen processors (Kaby Lake Refresh), but Dell will likely upgrade to the newer Whiskey Lake chips. These 14-nanometer CPUs promise twice the performance of a 5-year-old Intel laptop and 1.8x better web performance. Tasks like video editing could be nearly three times as fast.MORE: Intel Whiskey Lake and Amber Lake RevealedHowever, you shouldn’t expect huge performance gains from the 2019 XPS 13 versus laptops that are 1 to 2 years older.Make the lid easier to openIf you look at Dell’s own forums, you’ll find people complaining that the lid on the XPS 13 is difficult to open, as there’s no lip or indentation that’s easy to find by feel. The previous version of the XPS 13 generated similar complaints on Reddit. A small tweak to the 2019 XPS 13 design could go a long way toward making this laptop easier to use.OLED Display, pretty please?Look, this one could be a long shot. But Dell was the first to debut an OLED display on a laptop with the Alienware 13.

IMF projects economic slowdown in Costa Rica in 2018

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica drops two spots in global competitiveness ranking Costa Rica records lowest poverty figures in seven years Government tables draft bills aimed at approving fiscal reforms Consumer optimism remains low in Costa Rica The economy of Costa Rica will slow in 2018 and reach a growth of 2.6% on the year, concluded a report from a team of International Monetary Fund (IMF) experts who visited the country.“The slowdown reflects multiple shocks that affected the Costa Rican economy, including a three-month strike by state workers against fiscal adjustment efforts and the effects of the Nicaraguan crisis,” among other factors, the IMF representatives said.According to IMF data, Costa Rica’s economy grew 3.3% in 2017, and the organization forecast an expansion of the same level in 2018 in its October report.“Economic growth slowed in the second half of the year, with an increase in the monthly index of economic activity of only 2.7% in the third quarter of 2018, compared to 3.9% in the second quarter of the year,” the IMF said.The IMF noted that in November consumer confidence also fell to its lowest level since it began keeping records in 2002.“The team welcomes the recent approval of the tax reform law, which is a critical step toward restoring confidence and, if fully implemented, fiscal sustainability,” the IMF experts added.

Chinas Hanergy vows to challenge HK regulators stock halt

first_img 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Comments   Share   Shares in Hanergy, a unit of Beijing-based Hanergy Holding Group, had already been suspended in Hong Kong since May 20 at the company’s request after they plunged by nearly half in a spectacular meltdown that wiped out $19 billion in market value in less than an hour.The plunge also slashed Chairman Li Hejun’s fortune, which surged alongside the rapid rise in Hanergy’s stock in the preceding 12 months and had made him, on paper, one of China’s richest people.Hanergy’s announcement came a day after the SFC took the rare step of issuing its trading halt, which prevents shares from resuming trading even if the company requests it.In its statement, the company said the regulator ordered the trading halt because it had refused to hand over financial statements for Hanergy Holding and details of outstanding loans taken out by Li. Hanergy said the documents are the parent company’s private financial information and Li’s personal affairs.Hanergy also shed some light on a possible reason for the stock’s dramatic drop, saying the “significant price fluctuation was caused by speculations of a possibility” that a customer would not complete a deal to purchase solar panel equipment. HONG KONG (AP) — Troubled Chinese solar panel maker Hanergy said Hong Kong’s securities watchdog is demanding documents it’s unable to hand over and vowed to challenge a suspension order that prevents its shares from trading in the Asian financial center.Hanergy Thin Film Power Group said in a statement late Thursday that it will appeal to the Securities and Futures Commission and may go to court if necessary to challenge the trading halt, which it said was not in the interest of shareholders. 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Copyright © The Associated Press.

first_imgSource = TravelManagers Expo allows Personal Travel Managers to show expertise within local community TravelManagers’ personal travel managers Leisa Burette (left) and Denise Dean (right) surprised and delighted to see Denise’s client Marian Flanigan at the Scandinavian ExpoExpo allows Personal Travel Managers to show expertise within local communityTravelManagers’ personal travel managers are well known for their innovative and creative business approach, with Queensland’s Denise Dean representative for Hendra and Leisa Burdette representative for Hamilton, being no exception.Driven by a passion for Scandinavia, Dean and Burdette participated for the second consecutive year, in the annual Scandinavian Festival held in Newstead.“The festival brings together the local clubs of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Estonia and it attracts large crowds of visitors keen to see wares like clothing, trinkets, toys, furniture and jewelry, and sample the delicious specialties of these countries and celebrating everything Scandinavian. The average traveler is unaware of the incredible travel experience Scandinavia can offer and I saw this as an opportunity to raise awareness of a country I’ve always loved. It’s a real unexplored gem of a destination and it’s a real desire of mine to educate and inspire people about natural beauty and the wonders that await them,” says Burdette.Experience proved to be a valuable asset for the personal travel managers.“Having attended the show last year was a real benefit. We found this year’s event to be much better than last year as we knew what to expect and we were able to create more of what people really wanted with regard to products and information,” says Burdette.The event also provided a fantastic opportunity to promote the personal travel manager concept.“It was great to meet so many members of the wider public and explain the benefits and expertise we can provide as personal travel managers to potential new clients. It also provided an occasion to reconnect with our clients, it was such a nice surprise to see my client Marian Flanigan at the event,” says Dean.Dean and Burdette are shining examples of working together is far more productive than working against each other.“I love working with Denise! We work well together because we inspire each other and balance each other well. We recognize each other’s specialties and we also have very, very similar perspectives on presentation, delivery and service, so it’s very easy to achieve results when we are working in the same direction. She also makes me laugh, which is so important. We take what we do seriously but not so seriously that we can’t fall about laughing,” says Burdette.Dean agrees wholeheartedly “There is no competition between us. Working against each other creates stress, anxiety and negativity. As with our fellow PTMs at TravelManagers we choose to work together and create positivity, happiness and prosperity, you can’t ask for more than that.”TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal applauds Dean and Burdette’s buddy relationship that really resonates with the TravelManagers family based philosophies.“Denise and Leisa’s support and encouragement of each other to achieve mutual rewards and success epitomizes TravelManagers’ philosophy of personal travel managers working collectively together to support each other and foster community spirit. We recognize each personal travel manager has wide-ranging strengths in different areas and actively encourage this type of peer community support both from a social and business point of view. It’s this level of innovation and forward thinking that makes TravelManagers’ personal travel managers stand out from the rest and the results speak for themselves.”Personal travel managers Dean and Burdette received support from the national partnership marketing team and partner suppliers Finnair, Lufthansa, Collette Tours, Scenic Tours, Albatross Tours and 50 Degrees North.“The marketing team are simply awesome. We have the ideas but they created and delivered incredible marketing and branding collateral to make our stand look fantastic and also provide clients with flyers to take away that included pricing, valuable information and highlights of the regions to inspire clients to visit the Scandinavian region. We can’t speak highly enough about our partner suppliers whom we have fantastic relationships that also provided incredible support on the day,” says Burdette.Dean and Burdette view their presence at the Scandinavian Expo as a valuable experience in marketing.“In conjunction with our partner suppliers we put together mini packages that included tours, flights, and cruises featuring the earlybird deals. We had about 15 solid enquiries with four eventuating into great quality bookings. We have added a good number of new subscribers to our eNewsletter.

GLENDALE Ariz — The preseason is finally here F

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — The preseason is finally here.For an Arizona Cardinals team hosting the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday, it’s about more than an opportunity to start hitting another team.It’s the beginning of a new era for the Cardinals in a lot of ways. This is the first game as an NFL head coach for Steve Wilks. And it’s the fans’ first chance to see how he approaches live game action — even if he’ll be walking that fine line of attacking without giving away too many secrets in August. To be fair, that’s the tone Rosen took on the show.“It’s always going to be noted in my head that three GMs made a very poor mistake, but I’m happy they did,” the rookie quarterback told Doug & Wolf on Thursday morning. “I am very satisfied with where I am. I get to play with two Hall of Famers and hopefully a couple more. I have a great coach who came from (coaching) Peyton (Manning) and Philip (Rivers) and I get to learn behind Sam. I think I landed in the best situation of any quarterback in the draft.”EXTRA POINTS– Wilks said defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche is just dealing with “a little tendinitis” and is fine after he left Thursday practice. As far as the injuries at linebacker, Wilks didn’t want to give an exact timetable but said the team is “looking for maybe one day next week” as far as a Bucannon return from a knee injury. It will likely be longer for Bynes, who is dealing with a neck issue, though Wilks stressed he didn’t think that was too serious. Bucannon and Bynes sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday.– When asked how he would improve the infamous helmet rule that the league is focusing on this preseason, Antoine Bethea had a simple solution: Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires And then there’s center, where A.Q. Shipley’s season-ending injury has thrust rookie Mason Cole right into the spotlight.Beyond that, the team’s linebacker depth – already a concern before camp even began – will be tested this weekend with Deone Bucannon and Josh Bynes expected to sit out on Saturday due to minor injuries. On the bright side, that gives Wilks and his staff a chance to get a clean look at what options they have behind them.FOUR QUARTERBACKSSaturday also marks the start of the Sam Bradford Era in Arizona — and the beginning of Josh Rosen’s career. Wilks has indicated he’ll use Bradford sparingly in the preseason, though Bradford did say earlier this week he still sees the benefits of getting some reps in the exhibition contests, especially since he missed nearly all of 2017.Wilks said all four quarterbacks will play Saturday. When asked specifically about Rosen’s Thursday comments on the 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Doug & Wolf suggesting he might still be mad that three other quarterbacks were drafted before him, Wilks opted to look forward.“I didn’t know he said that and, you know, it’s time for us to move on,” the coach said. “He’s here, he’s a Cardinal, we love him. He’s going to be here for a long time and he’s going to help us win a lot of football games. That’s my take. He’s a young man, a grown man and he can have his own feelings and if that edge is going to keep him going, that’s great. But to me, again, I love where he is and I’m glad he’s a part of our team.” Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks talks to fans prior to an NFL football practice Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) “Oh throw the rule out of there,” he laughed. “Because it’s garbage.”He went on to acknowledge there are some blatant plays that need to be called, but he reiterated the game moves fast and it’s going to take a while for all the officials to interpret the rules the same way. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Everybody talks about what you should show, what not,” Wilks said Thursday. “There’s certain things you don’t want to show, but they’re going to get the film eventually. So do you hurt yourself by not working on that? I’ve never been a guy like that, you know? We line up, we play as 11-on-11, we’ve got to stop them. So I want to make sure that we’re efficient in doing things we have to do from a game operation standpoint, not just doing them in practice.“There’s some things that you don’t want to reveal but for the most part you’re going to run your offense, you’re going to run your defense, you’re going to execute special teams.”Related LinksCardinals’ Rosen on criticism of asking ‘why?’: ‘Dumbest thing I’ve ever heard’Cardinals, David Johnson not ‘close at all’ on extension, says Ian RapoportCardinals plan to use heavy doses of Rosen, Kirk early in preseasonDespite the depth chart, Cardinals’ No. 2 WR spot is still up for grabsA number of key positions to keep an eye on have already emerged, beginning with the annual search for a corner opposite Patrick Peterson. Wilks said he’s hopeful players like Jamar Taylor and Brandon Williams get a lot of passes thrown at them this weekend, so they get the opportunity to make plays and show the new coaching staff what they’re capable of.The second receiver spot behind Larry Fitzgerald is a hotly contested role right now as well, with Brice Butler, Chad Williams, Christian Kirk, Greg Little and J.J. Nelson all vying for snaps. Top Stories 2 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
