first_imgCity of Calgary administration says more information is needed before officials can make a final recommendation on whether Calgary should bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics. A report, to be presented to council Monday, praises the work of the Calgary Bid Exploration Committee, which found the games could create a $2.4 billion shortfall.Administration believes all levels of government should commit to funding the games, and the International Olympic Committee should say who will cover the cost for security, before any decision on a bid can move forward.Administration also says the city should only be paying for infrastructure that will benefit Calgarians long term.last_img

NEB reports crude by rail exports rose to a record 269829 bpd

first_imgThe province has called on Ottawa to help increase crude-by-rail shipments, estimating the discounts are costing the Canadian economy as much as $80 million per day.Meanwhile, oilsands producers such as Cenovus Energy Inc. and Imperial Oil Ltd. are ramping up crude-by-rail volumes to get barrels to markets where they will receive better prices.Cenovus has called on the province to impose production cuts to reduce the oil oversupply in Alberta but the suggestion has been panned by rivals who are insulated from discounts because they have firm pipeline contracts or use their oil in their own refineries. CALGARY, A.B. – The National Energy Board says crude-by-rail exports from Canada rose to a record 269,829 barrels per day in September.That’s up more than 17 percent from 229,544 in August and just over double the 134,132 barrels per day recorded in September 2017.Pipeline export constraints are being blamed for a glut of oil in Western Canada that caused the price discount to peak at more than US$50 per barrel in October for Western Canadian Select oilsands blend versus New York benchmark West Texas Intermediate.last_img read more

Tembec produces Q4 profit reduced annual loss as it adjusts to tough

by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 21, 2013 11:35 am MDT Tembec produces Q4 profit, reduced annual loss as it adjusts to tough market MONTREAL – Tembec Inc., a Quebec-based forestry products company that produces lumber, paper and pulp, says it has been impacted by lower demand for a pulp used to make products such as baby wipes and cosmetic face masks.The Montreal company is preparing to implement a plan for reducing its output of viscose-grade pulp, also hit by China’s new antidumping duties, and will put a greater emphasis on other types of specialty cellulose from wood fibres.China decided in early November that a 13 per cent duty rate would be applied to Tembec’s viscose pulp shipments — making them more expensive and less competitive in that market.“While pricing for specialty grades remained stable, demand has been softer than anticipated. We continue to assess the market with our customers and are adjusting our production plans accordingly. We anticipate that it will be one or two quarters before we see an increase in demand for specialty grades,” the company said Thursday in a news release.“The company currently has a position of 40,000 tonnes of viscose per year in the Chinese market. In anticipation of this announcement, the company had been developing a plan to reduce the impact of the duties.”Tembec is also dealing with unexpectedly weak prices for lumber used in house building, although the company says it expects prices to improve in the medium to long term.“Overall, the September 2013 quarterly results were in line with expectations,” the company said.“While the relatively small decline in random length lumber prices was not unexpected, the 15 per cent decrease in stud lumber prices was unforeseen,” said Tembec (TSX:TMB).“Pricing over the medium and longer term should increase, in step with the anticipated growth in United States new home construction.”In its fiscal fourth quarter ended Sept. 28, Tembec had a net income of $6 million or six cents per share — an improvement from a year earlier when it recorded a loss of $47 million or 47 cents per share.For the full 2013 financial year, Tembec had a loss of $34 million or 34 cents per share — an improvement from the 2012 loss of $82 million or 82 cents per share.Tembec’s fourth quarter and annual revenue was down from their year-earlier comparables, but operating earnings improved from 2012, when the value of a B.C. pulp mill was written down by $50 million.The company said it had spent $137 million as of September on a specialty cellulose plant in Temiscaming, Que., that will improve the mill’s cost structure and margins..Its obligations to a defined benefit pension plan will also be lower, due to a combination of relatively high contributions and good returns, and the company expects to realize up to $75 million by December 2014 through a B.C. land-sale program.

Civilian casualties humanitarian concerns mounting as Yemen fighting continues UN

In the last 24 hours alone, air strikes aimed at halting rebel activities have hit the Yemeni cities of Aden, Al Dhale’e, Sana’a, Sa’ada, Al Hudaydah, and Hajjah Governorates killing at least eight civilians, according to information provided today by the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the press.At the same time, clashes are continuing in the country’s south as Houthis and Government forces battle in Aden and Ma’ala, where a number of civilian targets have reportedly been destroyed including four residential buildings and a number of bridges connecting two major roads from Aden.The situation in Yemen has been rapidly deteriorating since the country formed a new Government in November 2014 aimed at ending a period of political turbulence and bringing about a full transition towards democracy. The country continued to be plagued by violence and political demonstrations despite UN efforts to bring about a peaceful political resolution.As the fighting has ratcheted up in intensity, the World Health Organization (WHO) today released its estimates suggesting that more than 540 people have been killed and some 1,700 others wounded by the violence in Yemen since 19 March. In a press release issued this afternoon, the WHO also deplored the deaths of health care workers and damages to health facilities in Yemen as a result of the conflict and voiced concern about “the serious implications of these attacks.”The UN agency reported that on 4 April two volunteer paramedics with the Yemen Red Crescent Society in Aden were shot when their ambulance was hit by gunfire while, in another incident, one security guard was killed and two nurses were injured in the health centre of Al-Mazraq camp for internally displaced persons.“In times of crisis, it is vital that [health care workers] be allowed to continue their work without additional risk,” the WHO declared. “Health facilities and ambulances must be treated as neutral premises and should never be exploited for military purposes.”The Geneva-based health agency added its emphasis that all combatants respect the protection of health facilities under international humanitarian law and underscored that patients be guaranteed their basic right to health without further endangerment to their lives.On a similar note, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) voiced concern about the escalating number of child deaths in Yemen due to the hostilities.At least 74 children are known to have been killed and 44 children maimed so far since the fighting began but the figures, UNICEF said, are “conservative” and the UN agency believed that the total number of children killed is much higher.“Children are paying an intolerable price for this conflict,” lamented UNICEF Yemen Representative Julien Harneis in a press statement. “They are being killed, maimed and forced to flee their homes, their health threatened and their education interrupted.”“These children should be immediately afforded special respect and protection by all parties to the conflict, in line with international humanitarian law,” he added.UNICEF reported that its teams were on the ground working to provide families with safe water and essential health services while also prepositioning therapeutic food and oral rehydration salts for young children.Nevertheless, the agency continued, the conflict is exacerbating the already precarious situation for children in one of the region’s poorest countries,” with much of Yemen already prone to food insecurity and with sever acute malnutrition widespread among young children.Against that backdrop, increasing numbers of people from Sana’a and Sa’ada are reportedly being displaced to Amran Governorate, just north of the country’s capital. OCHA said local partners estimated that up 28,000 people had moved into Amran since the beginning of the crisis and warned that the fighting risked interrupting humanitarian access, such as medical supplies, to those civilians most in need. In addition, the ongoing shelling in Aden has disrupted the city’s waterworks with the need to ensure a reliable water supply becoming an “urgent priority” for humanitarian partners. read more

After year of breakthrough and horror Ban urges greater collaborative action to

“Taken together, these plans and pacts have set the stage for a future that leaves no one behind,” emphasized the Secretary-General.At the same time, Mr. Ban reviewed the situation of “epic flows” of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 2015 and added that in the New Year “the world needs to aim for a new global compact on human mobility.”“Demonizing and scapegoating people based on their religion, ethnicity or country of origin has no place in the 21st century,” he stressed. The Sustainable Development Goals is projected onto the façades of the UN Secretariat and General Assembly buildings which brings to life each of the 17 goals, to raise awareness about the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UN Photo/Cia Pak After nine years of pushing hard for the agreement, the Secretary-General stressed that he will “press world leaders to translate promise into practice” by implementing it.Turning to other milestones in 2015, the UN chief spotlighted the recently adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its “crystallized” 17 Goals which stand as an “overarching guide” to end poverty and build peaceful societies. He also highlighted the significance of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda adopted in July which provides a blueprint for financing for development. The UN chief stressed that investing in development early will avert crises down the road, for which the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction, agreed in March, points the way toward resilience. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (centre) greets Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn at the opening of the FFD3 conference in Addis Ababa. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe He also noted that the UN has appealed for $20 billion to meet next year’s humanitarian needs, which is five times the level of one decade ago. And while donors have been “exceedingly generous,” 2016 will likely begin with a funding gap of more than $10 billion – the largest ever.Speaking about the World Humanitarian Summit to be held in May 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey, Mr. Ban said that conference will be critical moment to address systemic funding problems, and agree on concrete steps to better prepare for and respond to crises.“The world must invest more political energy in preventing and ending conflict, and in addressing violations of human rights – our best early warning signs of greater trouble to follow,” said the Secretary-General, adding that the efforts made this week to resolve conflict through diplomacy are “front and centre.”Regarding the Libyan peace talks, Mr. Ban said that parties are close to a “desperately needed agreement” that would help the country move beyond prolonged crisis.As for Yemen, he noted the UN-sponsored peace talks that began yesterday in Switzerland to achieve a lasting ceasefire and resumption of political transition to end the bloodshed and ease the plight of civilians, who have borne the brunt of the conflict. Despite the “daunting” situations, Mr. Ban said that political progress and smooth transfers of power over the past year, including in Sri Lanka and Nigeria is encouraging. He also reported that the transition in the Central African Republic is moving forward, following the constitutional referendum held last week and presidential and legislative elections to be conducted at the end of this month.Highlighting other progresses made, Mr. Ban said he was encouraged by the progress in the negotiations on Cyprus, and in Colombia where longest-running conflict in Americas in ending closer to the end. Additionally, Mr. Ban reported that Government and Army of Myanmar are cooperating with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to ensure a stable transition.Summarizing the year, Mr. Ban said that 2015 has brought “breakthrough and horror”, and added that the UN will continue to strengthen itself, including through wide-ranging assessments of peace operations, peacebuilding and our future role and capacities.“Despite the ups and downs, from peace processes to climate talks, we cannot afford to let up. Too much is stake. Millions of people depend on us to keep pressing ahead. I did not lose faith during the years of ups and downs of climate negotiations. I continue to believe in the United Nations – and in our staff, many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Mr. Ban.Taking heart in the cooperation witnessed in Paris for COP21, Mr. Ban said that he will “continue to have faith in the ability of the world’s people to come together for the common good. With that spirit, we can make 2016 a year of accomplishment and truly build a life of dignity for we the peoples,” the Secretary-General concluded.

Photo: UNICEF/Jacob Zocherman Mr. Ban noted that the international community has actively re-engaged in pushing for a political settlement in Syria, and added that the International Syria Support Group will meet in New York on Friday, followed by a meeting of the Security Council. “Syria is an open sore on the Middle East and the wider world. We are pressing for a nationwide cease-fire and for the start of negotiations in January on a political transition – and we must not relent,” the Secretary-General stressed.On extremism and terrorism, Mr. Ban said that it is crucial to counter threats posed by Da’esh (also known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL), Boko Haram, al-Shabab and other terrorist groups. “Next month, I will present to the Member States of the United Nations a plan of action on preventing violent extremism. Many of today’s conflicts – and often, unfortunately, the response to them – have provided a breeding ground for the spread of terrorism and violent extremism,” he announced.The UN chief also expressed alarm at the escalating violence in Burundi and termed the events that took place in the past few days as “chilling.”Warning that the country is on the brink of a civil war that risks engulfing the entire region, Mr. Ban announced that Special Adviser Jamal Benomar will visit the region immediately to speak to the African Union, the countries in the region and the Government of Burundi. “An inclusive political dialogue is needed urgently. We must do all we can to prevent mass violence and act decisively should it erupt,” he added.Turning to South Sudan, the Secretary-General said the UN peacekeeping operation there continues to shelter more than 185,000 civilians, a major advance in human protection efforts, however, he added that this is not a permanent solution, as many more remain internally displaced and under threat of violence, and urged parties to establish the transitional institutions before the end of January. “The Paris Agreement on climate change is a sign of hope in troubled times. It is a triumph for multilateralism that shows the United Nations delivering results the world desperately needs,” said Mr. Ban in his opening remarks to reporters at his year-end press conference summarizing the activities of the UN system.He also lauded French President François Hollande and Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who served as the President of the UN climate change conference, held in the French capital and widely known as COP21, for showing “inspiring leadership” and for refusing to be deterred by the terrorist attacks in Paris on 13 November.“The Paris Agreement surpassed expectations. World leaders recognized that we could and must do better than settling for the lowest common denominator. So they reached higher. The Paris Agreement gives us ‘Plan A’ for the planet – A for ambition,” said Mr. Ban, highlighting the coherence seen during the UN climate change conference (COP21) this year.

Lipreading CCTV will have people cupping hands over their mouths in street

The watchdog’s comments come as the Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, has launched an investigation into the Metropolitan Police’s use of facial recognition technology in London.Ms Dehnam said her office was “deeply concerned” about the growing use of the software, which the force was deploying at King’s Cross and St Pancras International stations as well as around restaurants and shops.Earlier this month, the civil liberties group Big Brother Watch also warned it had uncovered an “epidemic” of facial recognition technology being used around shopping centres, museums and conference venues in the UK.The pressure group said it had found that millions of people were now having their facial features unknowingly scanned and stored in data bases.Mr Porter conceded that such technologies could become an important tool for law enforcement.However, he added: “It’s important to protect a free and open society and at the moment we are at risk of ceding that to the impact of technology.“It’s the 70th year since George Orwell released 1984 and it’s relevant to say we’ve got to listen to those warnings and say we don’t want that society and what do we do about it.” People will be left “cupping their hands over their mouths” in the street if new lip-reading CCTV is not reined in, the Government’s surveillance watchdog has warned.Tony Porter, the Surveillance Camera Commissioner, said in future people would have to guard their conversations from prying cameras in the same manner as football managers on live TV, unless ministers act to regulate emerging intrusive technologies.The commissioner, who has been in place since 2014, also warned that doing nothing could see Britain become a Big Brother-style state that went beyond anything envisioned by George Orwell in his dystopian novel 1984. Among the new technologies Mr Porter expressed concern about were lip-syncing programs that can decipher what people are saying at distance as well as gait-analysis software, which can identify an individual just by the manner of their walk.“The capability to run lip-sync technology to determine what people are saying would have a very suppressive effect. It would change the nature of our society,” Mr Porter told the Evening Standard. “People wouldn’t feel they could have a conversation outside. We increasingly see the football manager cupping his hand over his mouth to give instructions for fear of being exposed. “Just extrapolate that by millions and what it would mean if people knew there was a capability of walking down the town and your lips moving could be picked up and extrapolated into a conversation.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Solidarity network links poor to donors

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A citizens’ solidarity network, based on the premise of bringing together the needy with those able to donate various basic goods, held its first distribution session on Monday in the old station house near the Larissis railway depot in central Athens.The initiative, which is being coordinated by the City of Athens but involves volunteers, distributed food and other goods to more than 3,500 beneficiaries who had submitted their details to municipal authorities.The list is open to individuals whose annual income does not exceed 7,000 euros and to families whose income is less than 12,000 euros. Would-be claimants must submit a copy of their tax declaration for 2010 or 2011 to secure a place on the list. The first step is to telephone the solidarity network on 15422.On Monday hundreds visited Larissis Station but most did not have to wait in line as packages were distributed from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.Officials at City Hall, which has seen its budget seriously reduced since the onset of the crisis, said the initiative is based on the good will of citizens, firms and organizations. “It is always easier to give help in kind than financial aid,” Angeliki Antonopoulou, the deputy mayor responsible for donations and volunteer programs, told Kathimerini.Already donations — of many different kinds — are reported to have flooded in. Members of the Greek community in New York are said to have sent large quantities of medicines, to boost the supplies of City Hall’s social pharmacy after Athens Mayor Giorgos Kaminis wrote an open letter asking for support.An unidentified Greek shipowner is said to be offering families with unemployed members one-day cruises. Food manufacturers are boosting municipal soup kitchens. And private individuals have reportedly been coming forward and contributing what they can.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Realme 3 review Reliable budget phone with premium design

first_imgWithin a year of making the debut in May 2018, Realme brand has grown steadily in India and one of the hallmarks of its devices has been good design, hardware and affordable pricing, which up until then was a bragging right of another of its Chinese peer.Like the predecessor’s Realme 1 and 2, the new edition Realme 3 has all the necessary ingredients to find traction among the youth, but does it really offer differentiating factor that makes it a standout among the current crop of the phones from the rival brands? Let’s take a look at it.Design, Display and build quality: Realme 3 sports 6.2-inch HD screenKVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaMy Realme 3 unit was dynamic black and have to say, it has been the best colourway for a phone, I have used this year. The device’s cover shell on the back flaunts dual-tone gradient finish with dark raven-hued shade blending so well with the sparkling purple, it’s a visual spectacle.It also comes with three-dedicated slots for two SIMs and a microSD, which is very rare in the budget segment and consumers never have to compromise between second SIM and extra storage.On the front, it sports a 6.22-inch HD+ display with a small notch on top and with less obstruction; I had a good time watching videos and high-resolution photos. Even under the direct sunlight, I had no trouble reading contents on the display. Realme 3 sports glossy shell with dual-tone gradient finish.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaAs far as the build quality is concerned, the back cover is made of polycarbonate material. Though it looks glossy smooth to the eyes, it offers good grip for the hand to hold on to the phone and I can feel the sturdiness, which I believe is enough to take accidental fall and protect the internal parts. I appreciate the company for offering additional shell cover with the package, as it will further increase the durability of the Realme 3 and thanks to transparent nature of the cover, the gradient design will still be visible so that user can flaunt it with full glory around his or her friends. 1/5 Realme 3 is available on Flipkart with prices starting at Rs 8,999KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 sports a lone power button on the right sideKVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 houses a three-slot tray (for SIM 1 SIM 2 microSD card) and below, it features volume rockers on the left side.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 comes with smooth surface on the top with no physical button.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 houses a microUSB port 2.0 with 3.5mm audio jack and a speaker grilles at the baseKVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaPreviousNextPerformance: Realme 3 unit comes with 2.1GHz MediaTek Helio P70 octa-core AI CPU backed by Android Pie-based ColorOS, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. During the testing period, it worked buttery smooth during app loading, launch camera, switch between multiple apps and internet browsing. I also played games such as Angry Birds and non-graphics-intense game and it performed well without any signs of lagging.Camera:It boasts 13MP+2MP dual camera on the back and it really took some stunning images and I am mighty impressed with the Portrait mode. Even in the night, the picture quality was good. But, I have to say that the Nightscape mode, was a bit turn down for me, as it needs steady hands and wait a few seconds to process the image. Sometimes, the autofocus speed was irregular under low-light condition.But, I was happy to note that the normal mode with LED flash takes a sharper image and even capture finer details.As far as the 13MP front camera is concerned, it takes decent selfies including portrait picture with good edge detection capability. 1/8 Realme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the eveningKVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the morningKVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the afternoon.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the evening.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the evening.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the evening.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the night with LED flash on.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaRealme 3 dual-camera picture sample taken in the night.KVN Rohit/IBTimes IndiaPreviousNextBattery: Realme 3 houses a massive 4,230mAh battery and truly lived up to my expectations. It was able to run through the day while performing daily chores. My routine involved taking audio calls, do internet browsing, go through social media newsfeed, watch a few movie trailers, play games in the free time and also catch up on latest cricket scores on sports app. And yet, it had more than 30-per cent juice left before I could resign to the bed at 12:00 am.Final thoughtsOver-all, Realme 3 is a really good budget phone for its price and has enough features to you to consider as an alternative to popular brands under sub-Rs 10,000, which some are still haven’t managed to improve its stocks and many consumers are getting frustrated of waiting for weekly flash sales.It has a decent camera, long battery life and the most I loved about the Realme 3 is its gradient finish on the shell and also the display quality is praiseworthy.If you are looking for a pocket-friendly phone, you can bet on the Realme and it will serve you well for long.Pros:Visually appealing design languageGood displayLong battery lifeDecent cameraDependable security (face unlock and fingerprint)Three dedicated slots for two SIMs and a microSD cardCons:ColorOS is a bit too complex to my taste, but this issue is subjective. I review several phones all through the year and every time I open and start using a new model, I have to relearn the intricacies of the highly skinned user-interface almost every time unless it is an Android One. If the customer is a first-time smartphone user, you can learn and master the ColorOS in a few days and get the best out of the device. Also, most importantly no ads will pop randomly while using the phone.Realme 3 comes in two models—3GB RAM +32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage—for Rs 8,999 and Rs 10,999 on Flipkart.

Two sub-$300 notebooks are aimed at two different markets: those who want a convertible touchscreen laptop and those who absolutely do not want that. Then there’s a premium option, the Yoga Chromebook C630 (pictured above), which pushes the boundaries of how much a Chromebook should cost.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 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Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

The convertible Yoga Chromebook delivers that, with an all-aluminum body, 15.6-inch touchscreen, 8GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of storage and all the ports you could need (1 USB-3, 2 USB-C, microSD card slot, headphone jack). Is $750 for a Chromebook too much? Take a look at the $1,000 Google Pixelbook and then ask yourself again.On the opposite end of the spectrum are two no-frills Chromebooks designed for kids in school and adults who want just the basics. The S330 (pictured above) is a $250, bare-bones, 14.1-inch clamshell Chromebook — there’s no option to flip this keyboard around to use as a touchscreen. In addition to the ultra-low price, the S330 also has ports galore, including USB-C, HDMI, SD card reader and headphone jack. That makes it a useful option for getting work done.But for $30 more, you can get the convertible C330 (pictured above), which comes in Blizzard White plastic with the same array of ports the S330 offers, same processor (MediaTek 8173C), same storage (32GB or 64GB) and same memory (4GB). Aside from being a convertible notebook, the C330 is also lighter (2.6 pounds to the S330’s 3.3), though it has a smaller screen (11.6 to the S330’s 14-inch panel). Is it worth the small price to upgrade to a touchscreen Chromebook? We’d venture to say yes, but it depends on how you feel about convertible notebooks.Lenovo also has a new always-connected LTE notebook, the $850 Yoga C630 (pictured above). Out in November (just in time for the holidays), the Yoga C630 sports a Snapdragon 850 chip, which gives it a 30 percent performance boost over laptops with the last-gen 835 CPU. Lenovo says this version can last 25 hours on a charge, up from 20 hours.The aluminum grey convertible touchscreen notebook seems ideal for the person who needs an ultra-portable, always-on machine, but Windows on Snapdragon devices haven’t impressed us in the past. We’ll put the Yoga C630 to the test to see if it meets our expectations.last_img read more

Only half of Costa Ricas roadway network is in good condition study

first_imgRelated posts:President Solís pledges to repair road to Monteverde by next year Work to begin on new road to Costa Rica’s Monteverde cloud forest community Road to Monteverde to be paved President Solís demands explanation for spike in traffic jams The percentage of Costa Rican roads in good condition increased over the past two years, theUniversity of Costa Rica‘s National Laboratory of Materials and Structural Models (LANAMME) reported Wednesday. However, the laboratory’s “Seventh Report on the Status of the National Roadway Network” also characterized the country’s roadway maintenance strategy as reactive and poorly planned.The National Roadway Council (CONAVI) repaired and maintained nearly half of the national roadway network during the period covered in the report. However, the number of roads in very bad condition also increased, researchers found.The coordinator of LANAMME’s Transport Infrastructure Program, Luis Loría, said at a press conference that, in general, the national roadway network is still unstable, “because CONAVI mostly repaves roads instead of making in-depth repairs.”The new layers of asphalt or cement are laid over damaged roads, so they are quickly destroyed.“It’s pretty much like putting on make-up,” Loría said.ResultsCosta Rica has 5,053 Kilometers (3,140 miles) of paved roads. Of these, 1,913 Km (1,189 miles) were in good condition in 2015.Two years later, the figure of roads in good condition rose to 2,456 Km (1,531 miles). This means that good roads increased from 38 to 48 percent of the total, LANAMME found.However, the number of miles in poor condition, that is, requiring deep repairs or total rebuilding, increased by 71 percent, from 279 to 478 Km (173-297 miles).Of the 48 percent of roads that are in good condition, 36 percent are in regular condition, while 5 percent require minor repairs.Roy Barrantes, the coordinator of the study, said that the most significant result is that the number of roads in regular condition decreased.“That means road conditions either improved or got worse in the past two years,” he said.Public investmentThe LANAMME study concluded that the government lacks a coherent policy for the maintenance or improvement of the country’s roadway network.The laboratory noted that CONAVI maintains a reactive road policy: they work on a road only when crews find a pothole or other damage.During the past two years, CONAVI allocated ₡14 billion ($24.6 million) for repairs along 907 Km (564 miles) of roads “without achieving the expected results,” the report says.That figure represents 11.5 percent of the ₡122 billion ($213.7 million) invested in maintaining all the country’s paved roads for a year.CONAVI invested that money mostly in fixing potholes and correcting irregularities on the surface, “but those roads actually required major repairs,” the report adds.LANAMME investigators also found several cases of roads where asphalt or cement layers did not have the required thickness to withstand vehicle traffic, so that “those layers deteriorated faster than expected.”Loría said LANAMME recommends that CONAVI change the way it creates contracts for building or fixing roads. Lab experts believe the agency should assign contractors a certain number of routes, and require them to keep them in good condition for a certain period of time.Currently, CONAVI only signs maintenance contracts when crews find potholes or other problems on a road.

Investmentgrade rating seen within reach in the next 12 months

first_imgTwo economists said that, following Friday’s upgrade by Moody’s Investors Service, it is realistic to expect that Cyprus could see its credit rating upgraded to investment-grade through an upgrade from Standard and Poor’s (S&P) in the next 12 months, in line with the finance minister’s assessment.S&P -which attributes Cyprus the highest credit rating after an upgrade in March to BB+, a notch below investment grade- could further upgrade the island’s sovereign credit rating “provided the remaining rating companies move along”, said Andreas Assiotis, chief economist at Hellenic Bank in an interview on Monday.S&P apply a different methodology focusing “more on the macro, rather on the micro,” and as a result they swiftly downgraded Cyprus ahead of the 2013 crisis and were quick in upgrading Cyprus in the following years, Assiotis said. “However, what matters is not what the rating companies will do but what we will do to provoke an upgrade. The economy is growing but non-performing loan levels remain high”.The latest rating assigned by Moody’s is Ba3, which is three grades into the junk-area, as is the BB- from Fitch Ratings and the BB (low) from DBRS. All rating companies said that further rating hikes are conditional to a further drop in non-performing loans which account for roughly half of the banks’ loan portfolio.Finance minister Harris Georgiades, who was commenting in an interview on state-radio CyBC on Monday, said that he was confident that S&P would upgrade Cyprus in the next 12 months, adding that while recent upgrades show that Cyprus is on the right track, the government has to continue with reforms. The finance ministry expects the economy to expand 2.9 per cent this year and in 2018 after it expanded 2.8 per cent last year. The forecast is slightly more pessimistic than that of the University of Cyprus which last week said that it expected the economy to expand 3 per cent this year and 2.7 per cent in 2018.“The upgrade of the Cyprus sovereign to investment-grade over the next 12 to 18 months is possible particularly by the S&P,” said Ioannis Tirkides, who heads Bank of Cyprus’s economic research and was also commenting in an interview. “This would depend on a reversal of the hitherto rising debt-to-GDP (gross domestic product) ratio, yet to be seen, and a material reduction in the level of non-performing loans in the banking sector”.“Both are likely within a sustained growth environment and near-balanced budgets, as anticipated in the government’s medium term fiscal programme,” Tirkides said. “In the banking sector, the pace of decline of non-performing loans may be expected to accelerate over the next 12 months, bearing in mind that about 40 per cent of them are restructured and, in their large majority, meeting their newly scheduled repayments”.Hellenic’s Assiotis said that the government, which achieved a fiscal surplus of 0.4 per cent of economic output last year and is expected to again post a fiscal surplus this year, which will enable a reduction of public debt to GDP ratio -of 107.8 per cent of the economy last year-, has already commenced with the repayment of public debt after it repaid earlier this month €0.3bn to the International Monetary Fund, out of the €1bn outstanding debt.He said that since banks are stepping up their efforts to reduce their delinquent portfolio, -with Hellenic agreeing a cease-fire with bank workers union Etyk last week, allowing the smooth operation of APS Debt Servicing, tasked with managing the lender’s non-performing loans, and the Cyprus Cooperative Bank announcing the establishment of a similar unit with Spain’s Altamira- over the next 12 months there can be sufficient reduction in bad loans to justify an upgrade by S&P.An upgrade to investment-grade raing by any of the four rating companies will allow Cyprus banks to participate in the European Central Bank’s (ECB) monetary operations and make them eligible for the ECB’s expanded asset-purchasing programme, which will further improve liquidity in the banking system, allowing the economy to enter a virtuous circle.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Cyprus Airways sets out to convince Brussels of its viability

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouA CAMPAIGN to convince the European Commission of the need for Cyprus Airways to survive began yesterday by the carrier’s Board of Directors in collaboration with the company’s consultants in Brussels and the ministry of foreign affairs, Cyprus Airways head Tony Antoniou said.Dramatic financial woes had brought the ‘national carrier’ to the brink of collapse, but subsequent capital injections from the government raised red flags at the European Commission, which decided to take a closer look as state aid is forbidden under EU competition law. The Commission’s decision – whether or not the government bailouts constitute state aid – will determine the company’s future, as it may be asked to return any government money received, effectively triggering bankruptcy.Speaking to state radio, Antoniou said that the board’s goal is to convince the Commission of the effectiveness of the company’s restructuring plan and expressed his confidence that the latest decisions made by the company were “in the right direction.”“We hope that, in concert with the effort in Brussels, this will lead to a positive outcome”, he said.The Commission is expected to announce its ruling in the Autumn.Antoniou did not bother masking his bitterness at the decision of 48 of the company’s 73 pilots to sue the company’s management in protest of severe – though temporary – cuts to their benefits. Court bailiffs interrupted a board meeting last Thursday in order to hand court summons to eight of eleven board members.“This executive board is literally fighting for the survival of the company, and this fight is the only reason its employees keep receiving a monthly paycheck”, he said.“We have the approval of the minister of finance on this decision – which is to say that the company’s major shareholder agrees with the cut”, he argued.“On the other hand, what is the purpose of the lawsuit? To secure their money or to send the board to prison? Personally, I consider this ungratefulness, to say the least.”The pilots’ union is the only one – out of five Cyprus Airways employee unions – to have opposed a management decision to slash the employer’s contribution to employees’ provident fund from 8 per cent to 1 per cent for 15 months.Despite criticism and charges of self-serving recklessness by their colleagues, the pilots argued that they have already accepted their fair share of cuts and proposed that the company saves money by scrapping loss-incurring departments and shedding excess staff to match the shrinkage of its fleet – currently only six aircraft.“We have accepted the slashing of our salaries to half over the last 8 years – last year alone, we had 17 per cent cut off”, pilots’ union head Petros Souppouris said.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.
