David Furnish Leave No One Behind In The Fight Against AIDS

first_imgDavid Furnish has written an article in the Independent, urging the world to leave no one behind in the fight against AIDS.People who Inject Drugs are one of the key populations that have the highest prevalence of HIV and whose access to HIV services is severely limited. Below is an extract from the article and information about one of our projects funded by the Elton John AIDS Foundation.“For the last few decades, those of us in the fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS have rallied around two powerful words: Ending AIDS.“And while we are closer to that goal than we have ever been, another set of words threaten to undermine so much of our progress: Left Behind.“In most communities, People who Inject Drugs still don’t have access to clean syringes, opioid substitution treatment, or naloxone to prevent overdose and the spread of infections. Moreover, many People who Inject Drugs are still denied access to basic health services, non-judgmental primary care, mental health and drug treatment services, and the support they need to maintain stable and healthy lives.“How can it be that over the past 15 years science has delivered approximately 14m antiretrovirals to people living with HIV, but still managed to exclude 96 percent of People who Inject Drugs?”To read the full article, click here.Source:Elton John AIDS Foundationlast_img read more

Cost on families from feds carbon tax plan will be known in

first_imgOTTAWA – The Opposition Conservatives are pressuring the Trudeau government to divulge how much the federal carbon tax will cost Canadian households — but Finance Minister Bill Morneau says they’ll have to wait until September to find out.The Liberals’ controversial carbon pricing policy has been under regular attack by the Tories, who are hoping it will become a key campaign issue ahead of next year’s federal election.During a parliamentary committee hearing Thursday, Morneau was repeatedly pressed by Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre to disclose how much the carbon tax would cost Canadian families.In response, Morneau said the plan will be revenue neutral overall and that there will be no net increase in taxes.However, he added that details on how much people will pay will only be determined in September after each province reveals their individual approaches to applying the policy.Poilievre then suggested Morneau was asking MPs to pass budget legislation that would allow the government to impose the carbon tax before explaining how much it would cost their constituents.The Tories have attacked the Liberals’ carbon tax policy and have argued it will raise prices on almost everything — from gasoline and groceries — without actually cutting emissions.The carbon price is set to rise from $10 per tonne per year until it reaches $50 per tonne in 2022.The Liberal government has argued that putting a price on carbon has a low cost and a big impact.The government has said carbon pricing encourages the pursuit of innovative ways for reducing emissions and will help Canada meet its international commitment to reduce climate-changing emissions.last_img read more

Minor in Fez Drives Commercial Vehicle Injures 10 Chinese Tourists

Rabat – Fourteen people, including ten Chinese tourists and four Moroccan nationals, sustained injuries after a 15-year-old minor drove a commercial vehicle without its owner’s permission in Fez.Preliminary investigations carried out by the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) showed that the 15-year-old did not have permission to use the vehicle.The owner of the commercial vehicle had given his keys to the minor so that he could bring bread in from the car. However, the 15-year-old took to the wheel.   The Chinese tourists were taking pictures in Bab Boujloud in Fez before the accident.Police opened a judicial investigation under the supervision of the prosecutor’s office. The minor and the owner of the vehicle will both be questioned as part of the investigation to determine the circumstances of the case.The legal minimum age for driving in Morocco is 18. read more

Details about Ontarios plan to sell and distribute pot once its legalized

TORONTO — The federal government has told provinces to devise their own systems for the sale, distribution and usage of marijuana when it becomes legal next summer. On Friday, Ontario outlined its plan. Here are the details:— The approach is modelled on the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, which regulates the sale of alcohol throughout the province— The proposed minimum age to use, purchase and possess recreational cannabis in Ontario will be 19, the same as the current minimum age for alcohol— The use of recreational marijuana will be prohibited in public places and workplaces— The LCBO will oversee the legal retail of cannabis in Ontario through new stand-alone cannabis stores and an online order service.— LCBO stores selling cannabis won’t be selling alcohol— Approximately 150 stand-alone stores will be opened by 2020, including 40 in July 2018, servicing all regions of the province.— Online distribution will be available across Ontario from July 2018 onward through a site run by the LCBO— Cannabis dispensaries currently operating are illegal and will be shut down with the help of police and municipalities— Police will confiscate small amounts of cannabis from people under the age of 19, but the focus will be on prevention and harm reduction, nor criminal prosecution.— Pricing and taxation decisions will come at a later date— Legislation regulating the control of marijuana will be introduced in the fall read more

Muslim Council deplores statement by Wijeyadasa on ISIS

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has raised serious concerns about the statement made in Parliament by Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe MP, Minister of Justice about the Muslim community.MCSL noted that the Minister has implied that 32 Muslims have joined the ISIS recently. MCSL said it strongly objects to the misplaced statement. “The Thableeq Jamath, Sunnath Jamath, Thowheed Jamath and Jamaithe Islam and several other organizations are all Muslim religious and social service organisations. They do not promote any form of violence as implied by Hon. Wijedasa Rajapaksa. Certain parts of his statement are verbatim of the hate speech spewed by the extremist priest Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero. The Muslims of Sri Lanka has a long history of peaceful co-existence and have stood with the Sri Lankans at good times and at times of adversity. The entire Muslim community has condemned the un-Islamic comments of the Secretary of the Sri Lanka Thowheed Jamath, Abdul Razick. Twenty-three Muslim Religious and Civil Society organizations headed by the All Ceylon Jamiathul Ulema issued a statement condemning the speech made by SLTJ’s,” MCSL said.MCSL also said that a little known fact that did not attract any media attention in July 2013 was that the All Ceylon Jamiathul Ulema and Muslim civil society intervened in court in support of Ven. Soranathota Chandrarathana Thero who filed action and pleaded with the magistrate to sentence Abdul Razick and six others with maximum punishment. MCSL also noted that as alleged by the Minister, no Muslim international school invites extremists to indoctrinate its children with fundamentalism.MCSL urged Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe to provide the evidence and take immediate action against anyone may have violated the laws of the land irrespective of ethnicity or religion. (Colombo Gazette) “The facts given by the Honourable Minister were reported in the media more than one year ago when a Sri Lankan combatant died fighting with ISIS. There have been no new reports of any others involved since this was reported last year. It is believed that one family had gone to Syria to provide humanitarian support to the war wounded and refugees. Some of the men are alleged to have joined or forced to join the fighting forces of ISIS. The Muslim community, including the Muslim Council, Jamiathul Ulema and other organizations cooperated with the government in identifying the families to provide the necessary support for the intelligence agencies to investigate. Those who have gone to Syria as quoted by Hon. Rajapaksa include women and children,” MCSL said. MCSL said Rajapakshe’s statement comes at a very opportune time to certain extremist elements bent on tarnishing the image of the Muslim community for reasons only best known to them. read more

Changing tastes brew bitter times for Japans beer makers

by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Aug 16, 2017 12:18 am MDT Last Updated Aug 16, 2017 at 9:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TOKYO – From beer gardens on the rooftops of department stores to fireworks extravaganzas to quiet, wood-paneled craft breweries, Japanese seem to quaff an awful lot of beer in the summer.But beer consumption has been tanking for five years straight in Japan, as the younger generation shies away from the obligatory after-work drinking that was a trademark of the dark-suited heroes of Japan Inc.Japan’s annual per capita beer consumption fell about 7 per cent between 2010 to 2015, according to a study by major beer maker Kirin.The future outlook is for more of the same. It’s such an obvious trend that there’s a Japanese phrase to describe it, “beerooh banareh,” or “leaving beer,” a gradual decline that hit after beer drinking peaked in about the mid-1990s.Younger Japanese tend to be more independent-minded than their baby boom generation parents or their grandparents, who saw going out for beers with their office bosses and co-workers as a call of duty.Brews also are losing out in Japan to a wide variety of other liquors, from wines to “kanchuhai” fruity cocktails, whiskies and cheaper beer-like drinks, and of course, sake.Naturally, all this worries Haruhiko Matsuba, marketing manager for Asahi Breweries, the industry leader in Japan.“The custom is getting lost,” said Matsuba, who says he enjoys a beer or two a day. “Beer can offer joy, happiness and smiles, and so everyone should try beer again.”Asahi, founded in the late 1800’s, is an institution in Tokyo, where its huge golden suds sign shines on the banks of the Sumida River. The annual Sumida River summer fireworks it sponsors each July work like one big huge ad for its beer — this year the city’s governor, Yuriko Koike, donned a summer kimono for televised “kanpais” —traditional toasts — by the river.In its effort to grab attention and help reverse the decline in beer consumption, especially among the younger generation, the iconic Japanese brand has turned to Hollywood. It tapped actor Johnny Depp to help sell a limited-edition version of its 30-year-old hit Super Dry — the brew that helped catapult it to No. 1 in the Japanese beer industry in 1998. The company’s latest ad campaign features Depp riffing on an electric guitar on a rooftop before popping a cold one.“He is an extraordinary character,” Matsuba told The Associated Press. “It’s about the unexpected factor of Hollywood.”To expand its already formidable global reach, Asahi has signed agreements with overseas beer brands, such as Italy’s Peroni, the Dutch Grolsch and Pilsner Urquell of Czechoslovakia.Other Japanese breweries also are expanding. Asahi’s rival, Sapporo Holdings, which has been the No. 1 Japanese beer maker in the U.S. for three decades, announced this month it was acquiring Anchor Brewing Company.It likely would take way more than a cameo by Depp, though, to reverse the trend away from beer.Data compiled by Kirin Brewery Co., a rival Japanese brewery, found the annual global consumption of beer, at nearly 184 million kilolitres, fell in 2015 from the year before, for the first time in 30 years, as consumption in China peaked.By region, Asia still tops the world in beer consumption, making up 34 per cent of global beer guzzling, followed by Europe at 27 per cent. North America accounts for 14 per cent and Africa just 7 per cent, according to the Kirin study.By nationality, Czechs were No. 1 in per capita consumption of beer. Americans ranked No. 20, while Japanese were 55th, down from 38th in 2010.“The days of the daily ‘kanpai’ and chugging beer are over,” says Kirin spokeswoman Naomi Sasaki.At least, though, Japanese are starting to appreciate more nuanced craft beers, she says, reflecting their more individual-oriented lifestyles.Japan now has about 200 small craft breweries, giving consumers more choice about the beers they drink, said Hiroyuki Fujiwara, president of the Japan Beer Journalists Association.Fujiwara believes changing tastes in part reflect a change of perspective after the tsunami and nuclear disaster in northeastern Japan in 2011. These days, many Japanese are less concerned about keeping up with their neighbours, he said.“The biggest contrast to that kind of thinking is the bubble era when people simply wanted what was considered cool by society, be it their home or their car,” he said, referring to the go-go economy of the late 1980s, which collapsed in the early 1990s.Last year, Kirin signed a deal with Brooklyn Breweries, founded by former AP war correspondent Steve Hindy, to replicate its flavours at its plants in Japan.Kirin also opened a craft brewery — still relatively uncommon in Japan — in Tokyo’s fashionable Daikanyama district two years ago: Spring Valley Brewery. Asahi opened one near its head office recently.Kirin’s brewery has a western menu, spacious terrace and beers with names like DayDream and Jazzberry that are brewed behind transparent walls.Shizuka Nagasawa, 29, was enjoying a recent weekday afternoon off at Spring Valley Brewery with her husband Keita Nagasawa and their 3-year-old son. They’re such fans they joined the brewery’s club and have craft beer delivered to their home each month.“There is such a wide range, like bitter-tasting ones and fruity flavours. Checking them out is fun,” said the clerical worker at a tea-maker.Later that day, in Nihonbashi, an older part of downtown Tokyo, about a dozen “salarymen,” jackets and ties off, each armed with a glass of cold beer, were downing their after-work beers the old-fashioned way.At Mitsukoshi department store’s rooftop beer garden, it was all-you-can-eat-and-drink for three hours at 4,801 yen ($44) for men and 4,301 yen ($40) for women. The food: classics like fried noodles, curry and wieners. The star beer: Asahi Super Dry.Eiji Itou, 50, a technology company employee who was sitting beside his company’s president, shrugged at the notion that drinking with co-workers in a beer garden is no longer trendy.“Kanpai,” the group shouted in unison, raising their beers together and gulping them down.“We, the old guys, are upholding tradition,” he said with a smile.___On the net Johnny Depp beer ad: https://youtu.be/lCzy1dwONTM?list=PLwzxp_rzFs73wh9HnEHf-NEc55zQkONiH___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaHer work can be found at https://www.apnews.com/search/yuri%20kageyama In this July 31, 2017 photo, Shizuka Nagasawa, right, drinks beer with her husband Keita Nagasawa and son at Spring Valley Brewery in Tokyo.

Potential threat of violence in Ohio State cafeteria moves past the window

An investigation by the Ohio State University Police Division into a potential shooting threat on campus is pending. Police believe the initial threat to be over with, but have not yet identified the perpetrator of the crime. “Ohio State University Police have been investigating postings to fantasy, role-player game sites which referenced a potential public safety threat of a shooting at OSU,” said OSU Police Chief Paul Denton. “We continue to investigate and are taking this seriously.” University Police released a public safety notice via email and text message to faculty, staff and students between 11:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Wednesday, warning the university community of the threat, which Denton said was “specific to a cafeteria at the Ohio State University and today.” “We felt it important to notify the university community to heighten awareness and to stress the importance of ‘if you see something, say something,’ and report suspicious activities or individuals to the appropriate authorities,” Denton said. The public safety notice stated that anyone with information concerning the threat should contact University Police or Columbus Police. “I want to encourage anyone who knows anything about this situation to notify University Police immediately for further information,” said Jay Kasey, OSU senior vice president for Administration and Planning. Denton said police will continue to monitor the situation until they are certain the threat is over. “We have expert police and security presence on or around campus dining facilities,” Denton said. “Although we have moved past the window of concern, we will continue to have additional resources and presence for as long as necessary. The safety of our campus is our top priority.” Kasey said the person responsible for the threat has not yet been determined. “The matter will not be considered complete or closed until we’ve identified the individual or individuals who are responsible for this incident,” Kasey said. Denton said police will continue to have a presence at campus dining facilities throughout the evening. When asked whether the security presence will continue into tomorrow, OSU Director of Public Safety Vernon Baisden said they are handling the situation “one day at a time.” University Police sent another notice at approximately 4 p.m. Wednesday to inform the university community that it has moved past the window of concern but will maintain “security presence and heightened awareness for as long as necessary.” The increased police and security presence applies to areas on or around campus dining facilities, including at the Wexner Medical Center. Officers at OSU’s regional campuses were also informed of the threat and took necessary precautions, according to the afternoon notice. read more

New survey of global mining stakeholders by BCG WEF shows regional differences

first_imgA report was undertaken by the Boston Consulting Group and the World Economic Forum in response to the increasing number of resource related disputes in 2012. The study was based on a global survey of 300 mining stakeholders in 37 countries with the aim to develop a new tool to mitigate the misunderstanding and conflict of mining disputes around the globe.The report, Mineral Value Management – A Multidimensional View of Value Creation from Mining provides insights gained from the World Economic Forum’s Responsible Mineral Development Initiative (RMDI). The study introduces a new tool named mineral value management (MVM) which has been designed to enhance understanding among diverse stakeholders of how value is created in mining.The RMDI initiative found that governments, local communities and mining companies approach mineral development with widely divergent perceptions and aspirations about its benefits and costs. Creating a better understanding of these differences is the key to establishing trust and constructive collaboration, according to the report. Such an approach can be an effective way for companies to engage with and create increased value for stakeholders.Roland Hasleher, a BCG partner and member of the RMDI Advisory Group said “Many mining companies invest significant resources in areas such as community infrastructure, environmental management and economic development. Establishing an understanding of needs and expectations across a range of dimensions can help more effectively direct these resources.”The RMDI survey also found that expectations and drivers of value varied widely depending on the stakeholders’ country of origin and level of economic development. In Africa and Asia, for example, governments were generally less positive than other stakeholders about the current value creation of mining but significantly more positive about the future.MVM is an analytical tool developed to facilitate stakeholder dialogue. It will be used in multistakeholder platforms being piloted by the World Economic Forum as part of the RMDI project in 2013. The platforms are designed to provide a neutral setting for dialogue and collaboration among stakeholders with the aim of actively advancing responsible mineral development at both national and regional levels.MVM measures and compares perceptions and expectations across seven dimensions of value. It accounts for the full range of effects—cultural, psychological and environmental—as well as more familiar and readily measurable economic and financial effects. MVM also takes into account that value created from mining can take the form of both benefits and costs.“Financial value is important, but it is not the only measure,” said Stephen D’Esposito, an advisor on the project and president of RESOLVE, a nonprofit organization that promotes collaborative resolution of public issues. “Anything that matters to stakeholders and affects their view of mining—be it a new road development that benefits local businesses or impacts on traditional cultures—needs to be included.”last_img read more

La ruée vers lor noir dans lHexagone

first_imgLa ruée vers l’or noir dans l’HexagoneLa France n’échappe pas à la ruée vers l’or noir des compagnies pétrolières, trop contentes de profiter de l’augmentation indécente du prix du baril de pétrole. Ainsi, les multinationales prospectent à proximité des côtes marseillaises, dans le Val-de-Marne ou encore en Camargue.Il ne serait pas impossible de voir prochainement apparaître des plateformes pétrolières en Camargue ou à Marseille. Et pourquoi pas même, un oléoduc traversant le Val-de-Marne. Avec la ruée vers l’or noir, les compagnies pétrolières n’ont plus peur de rien. Sous prétextes de participer à la recherche scientifique, les géants du pétrole poursuivent leurs explorations.Par exemple, l’étude scientifique « Gold » (pour « Gulf of Lion’s Drilling », forage du golfe du Lion), lancée par l’Ifremer prévoit de réaliser un forage de plus de 11 km sous la surface de la mer, à 200 km au sud de la Camargue. Comme ce forage est extrêmement coûteux, des compagnies pétrolières proposent leur aide financière. En contrepartie, ce forage permettra d’identifier d’éventuelles « ressources énergétiques » et le « potentiel en hydrocarbures sous le sel ». Cinq compagnies sont engagées dans le projet : Total (France), Petrobras (Brésil), Statoil (Norvège), Sonatrach (Algérie), Melrose (Grande-Bretagne).À lire aussiDes géologues ont retrouvé la preuve d’un “pont” entre la Grande-Bretagne et la FranceUne autre échéance approche : le renouvellement du permis d’exploration « Rhône maritime », indique notre-planete.info. S’étendant sur 9.375 km² (plus que la Corse), cette zone de prospection pétrolière située à environ 30 km des côtes varoises et à moins de 30 km du périmètre du futur parc national des Calanques intéresse les pétroliers texans. À l’invitation des collectifs contre les gaz et huiles de schiste et de nombreuses associations, une double manifestation, sur terre et sur mer, se déroule à la Seyne-sur-Mer et à Brégançon, pour demander le non-renouvellement du permis Rhône maritime.Par ailleurs, quatorze permis de forage en attente sont « arrivés au terme de leur instruction » et sont « envisagés pour octroi », dont douze en Île-de-France. Dans le lot, on compte les permis de Chevry et d’Ozoir, qui couvrent une zone de 395 km² en Seine-et-Marne, Seine-Saint-Denis, Val-de-Marne et Essonne. En effet, largement explorée dans le passé, la région parisienne intéresse les pétroliers pour ses possibles réserves d’huiles de schiste, que seule la fracturation hydraulique permettrait d’exploiter.

Top Deals of 2007

first_imgThe Top Deals of 2007Gemstar-TV GuideALMTime4 MediaAdvanstarInteractive DealsZiff Davis EnterpriseClarity Partners/Modern LuxurySummit Business Media/Wicks Business InformationAscend’s DivestmentsPrimedia Enthusiast After consecutive years of record-breaking media deals (both in volume and value), there are finally signs that the industry is cooling slightly. The credit market, so favorable to many of the jawdropping multiples seen over the past two years has tightened up considerably. Private equity, which has dominated the media M&A landscape, may be pushing back from its buying binge, leaving strategic buyers to pick up the slack. And a magazine industry that already expected a continuing flat-todown trend in print revenue in 2008 braces for a recession. Still, in M&A terms, 2007 had several market-defining moments. A strong start in both volume and value yielded to a fourth-quarter stall and the strategics laid the groundwork for their likely 2008 comeback, according to a report by DeSilva & Phillips. However, one area in which 2007 remained strong throughout was a trend of traditional media companies buying new media and digital niche players. Publishers ranging from consumer heavyweights like Hachette Filipacchi, Hearst and Meredith to b-to-b publishers like CMP sought to expand not only their technical infrastructure but also buy skill-sets that could be integrated throughout their existing operations. In FOLIO:’s 2007 Top Deals Report, we identify 10 acquisitions we deem to have the most significant impact on the publishing industry. These are not necessarily the largest deals according to price, but transactions that will have a lasting effect, ranging from long-expected sales of several legacy publishers to the entry of aggressive European players into the U.S. to the shift in digital media acquisitions. This year FOLIO: has expanded its coverage to include not only summaries of the top deals, but an M&A report that examines the changes digital publishing is having on media M&A, as well as what that means for owners preparing for their own sale.last_img read more

Pakistan to release Indian pilot in afternoon

first_imgIndian people hold placards and photographs of Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, as they celebrate the announcement of his soon release, in Amritsar on 28 February 2019. Photo: AFPPakistan was set to free a captured Indian pilot Friday in a “peace gesture” aimed at lowering temperatures with its nuclear arch-rival, after rare aerial raids ignited fears of a dangerous conflict in South Asia.Wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who has become the face of the crisis between Islamabad and New Delhi, will be handed back to Indian officials at the Wagah border crossing on Friday afternoon, Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said.In New Delhi the announcement of his release was seen as a diplomatic victory, with Indian leaders welcoming the pilot’s return but announcing they would remain on “heightened” military alert, showing little sign of de-escalating the rivalry.Abhinandan was shot down over Kashmir on Wednesday, after a dogfight in the skies over the disputed Himalayan region which sent tensions between India and Pakistan to their highest levels in years and alarmed world powers, who issued calls for restraint.”As the prime minister has said, as a peace gesture and to de-escalate matters, the Indian pilot will be released. So today, this afternoon, he will be released at Wagah,” Qureshi told a joint session of parliament Friday.A diplomatic source told AFP the handover was expected between 3:00-4:00pm Pakistani time (1000-1100 GMT).The Wagah crossing gate is famed for hosting an elaborate daily ceremony by Indian and Pakistani soldiers at sundown. Thousands of people had already gathered on the Indian side early Friday to welcome the pilot home, an AFP journalist said.The pilot’s parents travelled to Amritsar, near Wagah, via Delhi late last night and were applauded by all the passengers on the plane they travelled on, TV footage showed.Media on the Pakistani side were being stopped by authorities around 1.5 kilometres (a mile) from the border.The surging tensions had prompted Pakistan to close down its airspace, disrupting major routes between Europe and South Asia and grounding thousands of travellers worldwide.On Friday morning the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) announced a decision would be taken on re-opening airspace “shortly”. Earlier it had said flights would remain grounded until at least 1.00pm Friday local time (0800 GMT).#WelcomeBackAbhiPakistani students hold placards with the image of Abhinandan Varthaman, the Indian Air Force pilot captured by Pakistan authorities in Pakistan-administered Kashmir on 27 February and shout anti-India slogans during a protest in Lahore on 28 February 2019. Photo: AFPThe latest confrontation between the neighbours, who have fought three wars since independence in 1947, erupted after a suicide bombing in Indian-held Kashmir killed 40 Indian troops on February 14, with the attack claimed by a Pakistan-based militant group.Twelve days later Indian warplanes launched a strike inside undisputed Pakistani territory, claiming to have hit a militant camp.It was the first such aerial raid since their last war in 1971 — before either country had nuclear weapons.An infuriated Islamabad denied casualties or damage, but a day later launched its own incursion across the Line of Control, the de facto Kashmir border.That sparked the dogfight that ended in both countries claiming they had shot down each other’s warplanes, and Abhinandan’s capture.Residents on either side of the LoC also reported heavy shelling, which continued into the early hours Friday.Analysts said the pilot could prove to be Islamabad’s trump card, but prime minister Imran Khan unexpectedly announced Thursday that he would be released a day later in the first sign of a potential thaw.Khan alluded to the catastrophic consequences of nuclear war and called for talks, even as he warned India should not take the announcement as a sign of weakness.With the pilot attaining hero status and the hashtag #WelcomeBackAbhi swiftly trending on social media, India’s prime minister Narendra Modi called on his citizens to “stand as a wall” in the face of an enemy that “seeks to destabilise India”.The last time an Indian pilot was captured by Pakistan, in 1999, the handover was facilitated by the Red Cross (ICRC), who met flight lieutenant K Nachiketa at the Pakistani foreign office in Islamabad before escorting him to the Indian high commission overnight.He left for India that same day.On Friday a Red Cross spokesman told AFP the aid organisation is “ready to provide any assistance necessary”, but so far “is not involved” in Abhinandan’s return.Kashmir is ruled in part but claimed in full by both India and Pakistan. Two of their three wars have been fought over the territory.last_img read more

Credit Availability Up in February

first_img Mortgage credit availability opened up for the third straight month in February, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported in its monthly index.MBA’s Mortgage Credit Availability Index (MCAI), a measure of borrower eligibility and underwriting criteria from more than 85 lenders, moved up half a percentage point to 113.5 last month, building on an increase of two points recorded in January.Once again, the expansion in credit offerings in February was the result of offsetting factors, including changes in lending brought on by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), said MBA chief economist Mike Fratantoni.“Specifically, the recently implemented QM/ATR [qualified mortgage/ability-to-repay] sections of the new CFPB regulations stipulate that ARM [adjustable-rate mortgage] loans must qualify at the highest allowable rate for the first five years of the loan. As a result, many investors have discontinued loans whose interest rate adjusts after only 3 year[s] (also known as 3/1 ARMS),” Fratantoni explained.On the other hand, “[w]hile there was significant pull-back on these 3/1 programs, lenders and investors added several new 5+ year ARM programs, including those for Jumbo loans, to their repertoire resulting in a net increase to the MCAI.”The base level for the index is 100, a benchmark set in March 2012. Had the index existed in 2007, it would have sat at a level of roughly 800.

Zillow Chief Economist Stop Sugarcoating Housing Data

first_img National home sales are falling, and according to Zillow Chief Economist Svenja Gudell, the housing industry needs to stop sugarcoating the truth behind the data: the U.S. is severely under producing housing.According to Gudell’s reaction to August new home sales, which fell 560,000 (SAAR), down 3.4 percent from July and 1.2 percent from 2016, housing inventory is stuck at roughly mid-1990s levels despite the fact that the country has grown by more than 60 million people since that decade.Though buying conditions are great in theory, considering jobs and incomes are increasing, and interest rates are keeping financing costs low, Gudell said a lack of homes available to buy at a reasonable price point is missing from the equation.According to Zillow, the median, seasonally adjusted new home price is $302,100, down 7.5 percent from July and up 0.5 percent from 2016.“We’ve been hovering roughly at or below the 600,000 annual sales level for more than a year now, when the market could seemingly easily accommodate sales levels of 750,000 or even much more,” Gudell said. “While Hurricane Harvey likely held down sales in Texas, its adverse effect on August sales was probably pretty modest at around 6,000 units.”Given the South’s recent pattern of contributing to much of the new construction market, Gudell said it will be interesting to watch how new home construction fairs in the upcoming months after the hurricanes.“A surge in activity could set the tone for the rest of the country to follow; a lull will only mean the prolonged new home sales slump we’ve been enduring will continue,” Gudell said.

Laiki depositors claim buyer was paid to buy Ukrainian bank

first_imgThe buyer of Laiki bank’s subsidiary in Ukraine was “gifted” the bank along with a €1.5m to top it off, former Laiki depositors (Sykala) alleged on Monday.In a statement, they called on the Central Bank (CBC) to refute the allegations surrounding the sale of the subsidiary.The depositors said that the CBC, as a resolution authority had announced the sale of the subsidiary in Ukraine for €2.5 million.Citing inside information, however, Sykala claimed that the subsidiary is waiting on an €8m payment from an insurance company as a result of an abuse of power case by employees at the subsidiary. The cost of this is allegedly covered by the insurance contract.Sykala went on say that the sale contract of the subsidiary contains a clause offering 50 per cent of the amount paid by the insurance company, to the buyer.“When the insurance company proceeds to pay this off, the buyer will have taken the Ukrainian bank without having paid anything. He’ll pay €2.5m but receive €4m. Essentially, we’ll pay them €1.5m to gift them the bank.”“We call on the resolution authority to publically refute this information making the sale contract public,” Sykala said.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

have laws that prohibit discrimination due to sexual orientation and gender identity according to the Human Rights Campaign The central issue rests on whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which protects discrimination based on "race color religion sex or national origin" also covers sexual orientation and gender identity It also questions whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) a federal law with similar state-specific guidelines that protects religious freedom can subsequently exempt employers from abiding by these protections Attorneys arguing on behalf of LGBTQ individuals in cases like Stephens’s have relied on an interpretation of the Civil Rights Act that includes sexual orientation and gender identity (or both) under the prohibition of discrimination based on “sex” Those on the other side have also used the RFRA which initially came into law two decades ago to protect minority religious groups in the US to argue that employers can claim religious opposition to hiring a person because they are transgender or gay Lower court rulings and case law have produced a smattering of results and interpretations of what is defined by “sex” under the federal law and under the Trump Administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last year the Justice Department would take the position that LGBTQ individuals are not protected under federal civil rights laws Separate from Stephens’s case the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled in a different case that the Civil Rights Act should be extended to include sexual orientation "We are building the biggest body of love that we can when this issue makes its way to the Supreme Court" said Rachel Tiven the CEO of Lambda Legal which is representing a number of other individuals in similar cases to Stephens It’s possible Stephens’s case could make it to the Supreme Court as early as this next term if her former employer RG and GR Harris Funeral homes which is represented by the Christian conservative nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom appeals the case and petitions the high courts next term In May the organization along with a Michigan-based attorney requested an extension to the Supreme Court to file a petition for the court to review the case And they plan to file the petition before the deadline Jim Campbell a senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom representing the funeral service wrote in an email to TIME “We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will take the case interpret Title VII consistently with the clear language that Congress enacted and reverse the Sixth Circuit’s attempt to rewrite that law” Campbell said With Kennedy out Trump has moved quickly to consider nominees with the hope of a swift confirmation process likely cementing a conservative majority on the Supreme Court The President’s list of potential nominees includes a few with a history of favorable rulings for the LGBTQ community according to James Esseks director of the LGBTQ & HIV project at the American Civil Liberties Union which now represents Stephens "This idea that the federal civil rights laws protect LGBT people from discrimination is not even a left or right thing" Esseks said "Its something about the basic norms of protecting people from discrimination that we all share" Kennedys rulings on LGBTQ-related issues though wide-ranging resulted in key decisions that altered the lives of those most impacted His closing paragraph in his Obergefell v Hodges opinion is often cited in marriages across the country including those officiated by James Obergefell the namesake of the case himself "To say I feel it in the pit of my stomach now that he is leaving the bench is an understatement" Obergefell wrote recently in TIME Kennedy "took us on an incredible journey from a place where we were viewed as criminals under the law to the place where we can marry the people we most love in the world" said Esseks of the ACLU "The prospect of having a new justice who may not share those values and that view is concerning" he added Of course Kennedys rulings on LGBTQ rights varied over the years Most recently in the case where a baker at Colorado’s Masterpiece Cakeshop case refused to decorate a wedding cake for a gay couple Kennedy wrote the courts majority opinion a narrow decision that ruled the civil rights commission that considered the case before them exhibited anti-religious bias The Alliance Defending Freedom defending the funeral service in Stephens’s case cited Kennedys Masterpiece Cakeshop stance as one to remember rather than his Obergefell v Hodges ruling of which the organization said it "respectfully" disagrees In a new judge the organization said it hopes Trump will appoint someone with a strict interpretation of the law who “will uphold the First Amendment and the original public meaning of the Constitution” As for Stephens she hopes a new justice will consider cases "with the one thought in mind that were all human beings" Although her fight over the last few years has been riddled with health concerns and highs and lows Stephens says she feels comfortable and supported with who she is and has found a new calling as the face of a potentially historic case "Sooner or later someone comes along who has to be willing to fight for that cause and do what it takes in order to accomplish our goals" Stephens says "And I set out to be that person if I could be" Contact us at editors@timecomDylan Fulton had been drinking vomited when he was passed out and choked to death said Lori Hedican chief investigator

apologies: pictwittercom/KRBFr44n0y — Atul Kochhar (@atulkochhar) June 12 2018 The Kochhar incident sparked a counter-reaction on social media where some from the right-wing have called for a boycott of JW Marriott chain of hotels This is a silly position to take Marriott is duty-bound to obey strict Islamic laws of the UAE if it wants to conduct its business It is unreasonable to expect the luxury brand to keep Kochhar on at the risk of hurting its business It has taken a decision which became inevitable as the controversy grew The question to ask is why liberals hounded Kochhar in such a way that leaves the chef facing "imprisonment of up to five yearsand a fine of between 500000 dirhams and 1 million dirhams" This is not merely hypocrisy at work but Islamic exceptionalism that forces liberals to concede that Islam and Muslims should be kept outside the purview of liberalism This of course is a deeply unprincipled and perverted position to take but asJeffrey Tayler wrote inQuilette these liberals are "not genuine progressives at all… but deeply confused de facto apologists for the most illiberal notion conceivable: Namely that one group of humans has on account of its religion an inalienable right to dominate and abuse other humans: And to do so unmolested by criticism" It is here that the can hits the road In order to justify their illiberalism liberals performed the old trick of labelling Kochhar’s words as "hate speech" and called for punishment against "bigotry" This purportedly frees them from carrying the can of liberalism and they may go about their task of bullying those they do not approve of This fake liberalism similarly prevents them from standing in favour of the AMU students who were hounded (and received death threats) for visiting a bar
