Government Pursuing Talks on Reopening Bauxite Plants

first_imgRelatedGovernment Pursuing Talks on Reopening Bauxite Plants RelatedGovernment Pursuing Talks on Reopening Bauxite Plants FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Government is pursuing talks with overseas stakeholders, in a bid to determine the fate of the three bauxite plants whose operations have been scaled down.Activities at the plants – West Indies Alumina Company’s (WINDALCO) operations in Ewarton, St. Catherine and Kirkvine, Manchester, and Alumina Partners (ALPART) in Nain, St. Elizabeth – were scaled down earlier this year by the operators, due to the reduction in the international demand for alumina.WINDALCO is owned and operated by the Russian alumina company, AC Rusal, which also holds a 65 percent stake in ALPART, with the other 35 percent being held by Norwegian alumina enterprise, Hydro.Addressing Wednesday’s (May 13) Post Cabinet media briefing, at Jamaica House, Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding said that Jamaica’s Ambassador to Moscow Joy Wheeler, met with the Russian Vice Minister with responsibility for the bauxite/alumina sector, regarding AC Rusal and WINDALCO. She submitted a report on preliminary developments to Mr. Golding on Monday.No details on the preliminary efforts were divulged during Wednesday’s briefing, but Mr. Golding advised that the talks were ongoing.The Prime Minister said that he spoke with the President of Hydro Eivind Reiten, two weeks ago regarding ALPART’s future. Reiten is scheduled to visit Jamaica next month to see whether Hydro can offer any brighter prospects for ALPART.Apart from the fall in alumina demand, the Government is addressing developments with AC Rusal, which holds an overall 55 percent stake in the local bauxite industry, which the Prime Minister confirmed is in “deep, deep” trouble.“There is a US$7.5 billion loan for which they were negotiating (for) some restructuring, and the information that I have is that, if that is not concluded this week, it could have serious implications for the future of the company. That concerns me,” Mr. Golding outlined.Approximately 1,400 employees of WINDALCO and about 700 from ALPART have been affected by the scaled down operations at the three plants.In the case of WINDALCO, Mr. Golding said the Government was still waiting on a determination from Rusal.“There are certain legal obligations that they have to the workers, (but) the time has not yet elapsed (for them to be met),” he said.

Culturally and linguistically diverse community lose $22 million to scams

first_imgCulturally and linguistically diverse community lose $22 million to scams Last year scammers stole close to $34 million collectively from people who identified as culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), people with disability, and Indigenous Australians.Figures from the ACCC’s latest Targeting Scams report released earlier this week shows losses to the CALD community represented a 60 per cent increase compared to 2019, across 11,700 reports.“Last year we saw a big increase in losses to scams affecting culturally and linguistically diverse communities,” ACCC Deputy Chair Delia Rickard said.“Some members of CALD communities suffered higher losses on average than the overall community, accounting for one in every eight dollars lost.”“Unfortunately, scheming scammers try to target people who by virtue of their background, disadvantage, language skills or disability may experience vulnerability, and be more likely to fall for their tricks,” Ms Rickard said.Investment scams were responsible for $6.3 million in losses, the most costly type of scam for the CALD community.This was followed by threat based scams, and people from CALD communities lost $6 million to these scams up 248 per cent from 2019.The Chinese authority scam is a common threat based scam which cost people from the CALD community $4.3 million last year.These scammers impersonate Chinese authorities and accuse their victims of committing a crime, such as sending a parcel with illegal goods like fake credit cards, and threaten them with deportation or arrest unless they paid money or provided their personal information.“We received over 2,000 reports about Chinese authority scams in total last year with $7 million lost, and almost a quarter of these were from people with a CALD background,” Ms Rickard said.“This shows that these scams continued to disproportionately target Mandarin speakers in Australia.”Other threat based scams involved scammers impersonating Australian government departments such as the Australian Tax Office saying you will be arrested for unpaid tax and the Department of Home Affairs threatening to arrest you and have you deported.“Australian governments will never threaten you with immediate arrest. Always stop and think about who you might be dealing with, and if you’re not sure whether the call is legitimate, hang up and call the organisation directly using contact details you independently source,” Ms Rickard said.Scams also impacted Indigenous Australians in 2020. Last year Scamwatch received 3,455 reports with over $2 million in losses from Indigenous Australians. While the losses were 4 per cent lower than those in 2019, the reports increased by nearly 25 per cent.The most financially damaging scams for Indigenous communities were dating and romance scams, followed by investment scams and online shopping scams.People who identified as having disability made more than 7,500 reports to Scamwatch, and lost close to $10 million to scams last year. Dating and romance scams accounted for about half of these losses.More than one third of reporters also said they had lost personal information. Meanwhile, 25 per cent of people without disability reported losing personal information.“Unfortunately scammers do target all sectors of the community so it is important to stay alert,” Ms Rickard said.“Remember, never give your credit card details or personal information to anyone who contacts you out of the blue no matter who they say they are, as scammers can do an excellent job impersonating the government and private sector organisations like banks and telephone companies.”“If you think you have provided your account details to a scammer, contact your bank or financial institution immediately,” Ms Rickard said.The ACCC has translated the Little Black Book of Scams into ten languages to help the community understand and avoid scams.More information on scams is available on the Scamwatch website, including how to make a report and where to get help.The ACCC regularly engages in Indigenous outreach programs and shares scam warnings on the Your Rights Mob Facebook page. /Public Release.

India pegs Apple tax breaks to job creation

first_img The India government requested Apple detail its long-term investment plans for manufacturing iPhones in the country, including the number of jobs it will create, before it will consider a request by the company for tax concessions, Bloomberg reported.Apple held talks with officials about expanding smartphone production in the world’s second largest smartphone market, and the government is considering allowing the company to import components tax free provided it increases the local value addition over a certain period of time, Reuters said.The US-based vendor implemented steps to comply with local content requirements, which have increased as Prime Minster Narendra Modi’s government pushes its Make in India campaign. Counterpoint Research estimates three-quarters of smartphones sold in India in 2016 were made locally.In May Apple confirmed it started producing iPhone SE smartphones in India, with initial production of between 25,000 and 50,000 units a month.The company reached a deal in mid-February to start assembling lower-priced iPhones in India. Sources said at the time Apple planned to go ahead with production without waiting for the government to approve a list of requested tax incentives.Apple requestsAs part of its conditions to manufacture in India, Apple asked for a waiver of custom duties on imports of components and equipment for 15 years, along with an exemption from the country’s 30 per cent local sourcing requirement.The country’s Department of Revenue in March rejected Apple’s request for tax incentives. While Indian officials said they would not give-in to demands for concessions from one company, the government said it is reviewing its overall manufacturing policy to stimulate support for Make in India, and attract foreign investors.With growth slowing in China, the world’s largest smartphone market, Apple is looking to take advantage of rapid smartphone growth in India. According to IDC, smartphone shipments in the country increased 14.8 per cent year-on-year to 27 million units in Q1.Rival Samsung announced plans to invest KRW700 billion ($623 million) to double its handset production capacity at a facility in northern India to ten million units a month.

Bradley’s chance to get back on track

first_imgLAKE FOREST, Ill. – The decline finally felt real for Keegan Bradley in April. After years as a mainstay near the top of the world rankings, Bradley’s game had been slowly slipping away for months as he made adjustments both on and off the course. But it wasn’t until his peers started their annual pilgrimage down Magnolia Lane without him this past spring that the former PGA champ took stock of just how far he had fallen. “That was awful,” said Bradley, whose five-year Masters exemption for winning the 2011 PGA expired in 2016. “I normally would go early and practice and play a little bit. That was always super fun for me, and now I wasn’t allowed. I couldn’t go, so that was tough.” It doesn’t seem that long ago that Bradley was christened as the next can’t-miss prospect when he burst out of obscurity during a steamy week at Atlanta Athletic Club, hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy in his first-ever major start. It was the second win of his rookie year, and another trophy followed the next summer at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. But since then, the hardware has been hard to come by. Bradley is in the midst of a winless drought that now stretches more than five years, one he hopes to end this week at the BMW Championship where his 6-under 65 left him in a tie for second place, three shots behind leader Marc Leishman. The 25-year-old who seemingly couldn’t believe his fortune after that playoff over Jason Dufner is long gone. In his place stands a 31-year-old man with a baby on the way, a seasoned veteran who now has to fight off an incoming group of younger talent and who has experienced both the ups and the downs that pro golf has to offer. “It stinks. It’s no fun watching majors at home, no fun watching Ryder Cups and Presidents Cups at home,” Bradley said. “You start feeling bad for yourself.” The crux of Bradley’s regression can be traced back to the anchoring ban that took effect last year. His win with an anchored belly putter at the 2011 PGA was one of the results that led the USGA to take action, and Bradley admittedly struggled to find a solution. BMW Championship: Articles, video and photos Current FedExCup Playoff points standings After finishing 47th on Tour in strokes gained putting in 2014, he fell to 128th the next season and bottomed out at No. 183 on the greens in 2016. “It was tougher than I thought,” Bradley said. “But I was going through stuff with my game as well where I was working on that, so it was kind of like I couldn’t focus on one thing long enough.” Bradley failed to advance to the second playoff event in his native New England last year, but he opened the fall portion of this season with four straight top-25 finishes. That proved to be a harbinger of things to come, as a more confident and consistent Bradley now sits on the cusp of advancing to the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013. While he deserves much of the credit for his own reclamation, he put a hefty amount at the feet of veterans who offered advice during his darkest moments. Bradley has gotten tips from Ernie Els on what it takes to rebound from poor stretches, and he still has a pipeline for advice from friend and former Ryder Cup teammate Phil Mickelson, who sent Bradley a note of encouragement prior to the opening round at Conway Farms Golf Club. “He and I have been on a stretch where we are not playing at our best, and we are close to getting it back,” Mickelson said. “I just sent him a little text, ‘Hey, let’s have a special week. We’re close, we’re playing well, let’s put it together this week.’ Because his upside, his potential as a player is as high as just about anybody.” A spot at East Lake remains the goal for all 70 players in this week’s field but it holds extra gravity for Bradley, who missed two of the four majors this year and entered the week ranked No. 95 in the world. A schedule constructed with fully-exempt status is nice, but it doesn’t compare to one replete with the spoils of making the season finale: spots in each of the first three majors as well as the WGC-Mexico Championship. For Bradley, this week serves as a tantalizing opportunity to ensure his absence from Augusta National is short-lived. “Get into the Tour Championship and your year is set,” he said. “You’re basically top 50 in the world at that point. So it’s always in the back (of the mind), somewhere.” The game is still not as easy as it felt when he was taking the Tour by storm as a rookie, and the baby-faced grin is a bit more weathered these days. But after spending the last 11 months steadily climbing back onto leaderboards, Bradley has a chance this week to put an emphatic stamp on his return to form. Suddenly, the lows of April seem far away. “It was a lot more fun back then, I can tell you that. It’s a lot more fun winning, playing in majors and playing in Ryder Cups,” Bradley said. “But things are different for me now. I have a lot to look forward to, and a lot to work for. I’ve got a lot more years out here, so I look forward to that.”last_img read more

But the Chiefs found a way back into the contest with a 10-point haul via a converted try by the impressive Boshier and a penalty by Damian McKenzie.With just two points separating the sides and the clock winding down to the half-time mark, a contentious refereeing decision cost the Chiefs dearly. With the Crusaders on attack, Chiefs wing Shaun Stevenson stuck out his hand to prevent the final pass from going to hand and he was rightly penalised. But not content to dish out only a penalty, the referee and his linesman called on the TMO for a couple of television replays. Stevenson was deemed to have deliberately slapped the ball down and copped a yellow card for the indiscretion.With a man up and a minute to go before the break, the Crusaders set a lineout and from there scored a brilliantly executed set-piece try as captain Codie Taylor dove over from the back of an unstoppable driving maul. ‘ Published on August 1, 2020 熱門話題不要被酵素騙了!在萬寧賣的「這個」直接針對脂肪…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘ Crusaders surge sinks Chiefs Post by Mariette Adams  73  11 ‘center_img In a ding-dong battle at the beginning of the second half, McKenzie outkicked Richie Mo’unga three penalties to one as the Chiefs closed the gap to a single point with the game heading toward the hour mark.But, in another cruel blow to the Chiefs’ chances, the Crusaders were awarded a try – scored by Sevu Reece – despite there being a clear knock-on in the lead-up to the touchdown.From there the Crusaders pressed on and turned the screws, with Mo’unga pulling the strings and dictating play masterfully. The flyhalf  set up replacement Leicester Fainga’anuku for his team’s fourth try, which effectively ended the game as a contest.The Chiefs had a couple of opportunities for a consolation score, but they were unable to get the breakthrough, allowing the Crusaders to ultimately come away with a comfortable bonus-point win.Chiefs – Try: Lachlan Boshier.

From the outset the Crusaders looked tuned in, and although the Chiefs were able fight back well and hang tough throughout the first three quarters of the match, they could do nothing to halt the Crusaders’ surge in the final 20 minutes.The possession and territorial stakes were almost evenly split, but the visitors were more aggressive on defence and dominated the set pieces – particularly the scrum. The Crusaders, though, did not have the upper hand at the breakdown where Chiefs flank Lachlan Boshier had a field day, notching several crucial turnover penalties for his side.Be that as it may, the Crusaders raced out to a 12-point lead courtesy of two tries, the first originating from a well-executed sequence of play down the short side and the second coming after a patient 15-phase attack.
