Trump threatening tariffs on vehicles from Canada

US President Donald Trump is once again threatening to impose tariffs on vehicles coming from Canada. In a tweet last night trump said “Tariffs and trade barriers are far too high. Will tax cars if we can’t make a deal!”.The same post referenced NAFTA talks between the US and Mexico saying “Deal with Mexico is coming along nicely and Canada must wait”.There has been concerns about Canada being excluded from the recent re-negotiations on the three-country trade deal.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma says hes a bit old for the Internet

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Alibaba founder Jack Ma, the billionaire who has run the Chinese e-commerce giant since 1999, says he’s getting “a bit old” for the Internet.That’s what the outgoing chief executive told a charitable event in Santa Monica Thursday as he pledged $5 million toward a China-based fund that supports environmental conservation projects outside China.“I’m young for new things but I’m a bit old for the Internet,” the 48-year-old said.Ma’s gift doubles the amount raised for the China Global Conservation Fund, an offshoot of the Arlington, Va.-based organization, The Nature Conservancy.Ma steps down as CEO from Alibaba Group on May 10, ahead of a widely expected initial public offering of stock that could create a windfall for Yahoo Inc., which owns nearly a quarter of the company.Ma said that he prepared for his retirement for the last nine years and is looking forward to working on philanthropic causes such as environmental conservation.He said he was inspired to act after visiting his home in China six years ago. A lake he nearly drowned in as a boy had mostly dried up. He also spoke to a farmer who used chemicals on produce that he wouldn’t feed his family. “I know something is wrong,” Ma said.Ma will chair the Chinese board overseeing the fund once he steps down as CEO.

Ottawa runs 1B deficit in first quarter down from 5B surplus last

by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 26, 2016 9:02 am MDT Last Updated Aug 26, 2016 at 12:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Ottawa runs $1B deficit in first quarter, down from $5B surplus last year OTTAWA – The federal government ran a deficit of $1.0 billion for the first quarter of its fiscal year, down from a surplus of $5.0 billion in the same period last year though “broadly consistent” with projections in the 2016-17 budget, the Finance Department said Friday.“The financial results for the first three months of the fiscal year provide limited information with respect to the outlook for the year as a whole,” the department said in its fiscal monitor report.“This is because the timing of revenues and expenses can vary from year to year and because the results do not yet reflect several significant government initiatives, such as the introduction of the Canada child benefit.”In the spring budget, the Liberal government projected a $29.4-billion deficit for the 2016-17 fiscal year, which included billions in spending. Those expenditures included the Canada child benefit, which began going out to families in July.The new child benefit replaced the universal child care benefit, the Canada child tax benefit and the national child benefit supplement.Government revenues fell $1.5 billion or 2.1 per cent to $71.8 billion in the first quarter of the fiscal year, while program spending increased $5.1 billion or 8.3 per cent to $66.4 billion. Public debt charges totalled nearly $6.4 billion, down from $7 billion, due largely to a lower average interest rate.For June, the federal government ran a deficit of $1.1 billion as revenue fell and spending increased. The shortfall compared with a surplus of $1.1 billion in the same month last year.Revenue fell $500 million or 2.2 per cent in June due to lower corporate income tax revenue, non-resident income tax and excise taxes and duties.Program spending grew by $1.6 billion that month, an increase of 7.5 per cent, due to growth in major transfers to other levels of government and direct program expenses, though that was partially offset by a drop in transfers to people such as social benefit payments.Public debt charges increased by $100 million or 3.1 per cent, mainly due to higher consumer price index adjustments on real return bonds. read more

The Eagles And Ravens Are Screwed

We’re two weeks into the NFL season, and nine teams are 0-2. But these winless squads are not created equal: The Seattle Seahawks, last season’s NFC champion, are clearly in better shape than the terrible Chicago Bears. Still, two games is an eighth of the season, and two early losses can wipe out even the best teams’ margin of error for the rest of the season.So, how bad is it to start 0-2? And which of these nine teams have already screwed up their playoff chances? Watch the video below to find out; you can see the chart we discuss at the bottom of the post.If you’re into this kind of statistical banter, subscribe to FiveThirtyEight’s sports podcast, Hot Takedown.

Panasonic intros rugged 7 and 10inch BizPad Android tablets

first_imgAll those new low-cost, slim, sexy Android tablets we’ve seen lately are great and all, but how will they hold up on the job site? They’re all a bit too delicate to fend off environmental attackers like dust and water. Fortunately, several OEMs are building tough, manly Android tablets that can stand up to abuse — and Panasonic has just unveiled a new pair of contenders.Meet the BizPad JT-580VT and 581VT, ruggedized 7 and 10-inch (respectively) Android tablets. They’re powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and feature 16GB of internal storage, NFC support, user-replaceable batteries, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, GPS, and an infrared emitter.The 7-inch 580VT offers a 5 megapixel front facing camera while the 581 packs a 1.3 megapixel rear camera for video conferencing. Apart from the obvious difference in diagonal measurements, the 580’s touchscreen pushes 1024×768 pixels compared to the 581 at 1280×800. Both are fairly light, at 400 grams and 700 grams respectively.Those are fairly bog-standard specs for Android tablets nowadays, but it’s the rugged design that’s the star here. Both the 580 and 581 are dust-proof and water-proof, and they can handle significant drops — of up to 120CM for the 7-incher and 80CM for its 10-inch sibling.These aren’t Panasonic’s first hard-nosed Android tablets, of course. They’ll join the company’s first ToughBook slate built with Android under the hood, which we showed you back in June. Panasonic has a long pedigree when it comes to ruggedized portable devices, and these new Android slates are sure to get plenty of looks from demanding IT administrators who need resilient tablets to hand out to their users.Unfortunately, this duo is only slated for sale in Japan right now, where they’ll hit the streets in January 2012.More at TechCrunch and Panasoniclast_img read more

Debt relief still needed says Bank of Greece chief

first_imgBank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras has called for a compromise between Athens and the troika in an interview with Sunday’s Kathimerini, while also insisting that the eurozone should provide Greece with further debt relief.“It is in the interests of both the Greek side and the troika for there to be an immediate compromise based on current reality and common sense,” said Stournaras as Athens waits to see if its reform proposals will be accepted by its lenders so inspectors return to complete a review that has been on hold for several weeks.Stournaras sided with the government over its insistence that there will not be a problem with a fiscal gap next year. The former finance minister pointed out that the troika has miscalculated Greece’s fiscal gap in the past. Instead, he said that the government should focus on strengthening tax collection, speeding up privatizations and promoting more liberalization measures.However, he also disagreed with some European Union officials who have recently insisted that Greece will not need more debt relief to help its economy. He said that the eurozone should stick by its pledge at the Eurogroup on November 27, 2012 to lighten Greece’s debt load once it has achieved a primary surplus.“I believe the further debt relief foreseen at that Eurogroup has to be implemented, along with the necessary fiscal adjustment, privatizations and reforms that help the growth prospects of the Greek economy,” he said.“Firstly, because the sustainability of the current levels of public debt depend on a very high primary surplus (4.5 percent of gross domestic product) from 2016 onward. Secondly, because the lightening of the Greek debt load, according to the discussions at that Eurogroup, was also seen as a reward for Greece after a long and persistent fiscal adjustment.”Stournaras played down fears that Greek banks would lose access to European Central Bank liquidity if Greece and the troika fail to agree on a new program or conditions for a precautionary credit line by January 1 but said this would not be a welcome option.“In such a case liquidity will not be stopped but will be provided through Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA),” he said, adding that this would be a more expensive form of borrowing that would have an impact on the real economy. “Today Greek banks refinance their loans from the Eurosystem at a cost of about 0.05 percent. In the unwelcome case that they need to turn to ELA the cost will be around 1.55 percent.”The central bank governor also welcomed the recent law on the settlement of non-performing corporate loans, saying it is in the “right direction,” but added that for Greek lenders to play an effective role in the local economy, the remaining loans which are not being serviced would also need to be tackled.“The supply of loans does not just depend on capital adequacy but also on banks’ liquidity as well,” said Stournaras. “Following their recent capital increases, banks have an adequate capital base but the pressure on their liquidity is still strong.“The large amount of nonperforming loans are an important factor in shaping liquidity. That is why the effective management of these loans, based on best international practices, is vital in order for banks to support the real economy.”Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Anneaux de Saturne leur origine au coeur dune nouvelle théorie

first_imgAnneaux de Saturne : leur origine au coeur d’une nouvelle théorieUne nouvelle étude publiée dans la revue Nature indique que la formation des anneaux de Saturne pourrait être due à d’anciennes lunes qui auraient pulvérisé des particules de glace autour de la planète.Les anneaux de Saturne seraient les vestiges de satellites naturels depuis longtemps disparus, dépouillés de leur couche de glace externe avant qu’ils n’aillent s’écraser sur la planète, selon une nouvelle théorie. Les fragments de glace auraient ainsi encerclé la deuxième plus grande planète du système solaire, formant alors les anneaux que nous connaissons aujourd’hui, selon Robin Canup, un des auteurs de cette étude dévoilée hier dans la revue Nature.”Cela expliquerait non seulement les anneaux actuels, mais également la présence de nombreuses lunes riches en glace que nous avons observé”, explique-t-elle.À lire aussiUn rover détecte un étrange gel sur la face cachée de la LuneAuparavant, l’origine des anneaux de Saturne était expliquée par deux théories : soit une petite lune a plongé en direction de la planète et a explosé à son contact, soit une comète s’est écrasée sur un de ces satellites, le faisant voler en éclats. Des hypothèses qui posent problème : ces deux scénarios auraient abouti à des anneaux composés d’un mélange de roche et de glace plutôt qu’aux anneaux riches en glace que nous voyons aujourd’hui : ceux-ci sont composés à 90-95% de glace d’eau.Robin Canup a étudié ce qui s’est passé après la formation de Saturne. Plusieurs satellites de la taille de Titan étaient présents autour de la planète mais ils l’ont par la suite heurtée.La scientifique a pu montrer, à travers une simulation, que lorsque ces satellites disparus ont traversé la région occupée par l’anneau B, leur glace s’est mise à fondre. Conséquence : leur matière solide a rejoint le centre. Et c’est par la force gravitationnelle que cette glace s’est dispersée en bandes sur Saturne, à l’origine de ses anneaux majestueux, alors que le noyau rocheux continuait sa course vers le sol.Une théorie qui doit être confirmée ou infirmée par Cassini. Cette sonde doit mesurer la masse et le taux de pollution des anneaux afin d’estimer leur âge de manière plus précise. Sa mission est prolongée jusqu’en 2017.Le 13 décembre 2010 à 17:48 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Road state worsens turns slushy

first_imgMadhapur: While all roads in the neighborhood were free of water-logging, the roads of Vittal Rao Nagar had to bear the brunt of the recent rains. The residents say that the problem is due to the road not being laid for a couple of years. The entire street was water-logged and after the water receded, the road turned muddy and filled with garbage due to which commuting on the roads became difficult. A local shared, “The roads have become slushy and slippery it is very risky for someone to commute. Motorists and pedestrians who try to cross roads are at of slipping and falling down.

Smart Speakers Most Popular in Living Rooms Followed by Bedrooms and Kitchens

first_imgAmazon Echo may once have been marketed as the ideal kitchen speaker, but a new survey from Adobe Analytics shows that smart speakers are increasingly invading the living room. 63% smart speaker owners surveyed by the company said that they have a smart speaker in their living room, followed by 42% who have one in their bedroom and 37% who have such a device in their kitchen.These findings have some major implications both on the types of smart devices that are being marketed to consumers, as well as the ways consumers are using them. For one thing, the growing use of smart speakers in living rooms seems to validate an increased focus on sound quality by major manufacturers over the last several months.This included Apple’s entrance into the market with its HomePod, which is heavily focused on audio quality; Amazon’s introduction of better-sounding Echo speakers and equipment to bring the Alexa assistant to existing Hi-Fi audio systems; Sonos decision to position itself as the smart speaker maker for music lovers; and Google’s introduction of the Home Max speaker. The increased use of smart speakers in the living room should also lead to further integrations with TV sets. Already, a number of manufacturers have begun to let Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Assistant control TV playback.But the growing popularity of smart speakers in living rooms could also lead to new use cases for these types of devices around communal and entertainment experiences. “We see an opportunity to grow an entire industry of voice-based games for groups of friends having a get-together, or parents looking for an activity for their child,” said Adobe Analytics group manager Heidi Besik. Already, 20% of smart speaker owners have used their devices to play games, and 64% of these smart speaker gamers do this at least once a day, according to the survey.Adobe has been querying consumers about smart speakers for some time. The company’s newest report indicates that smart speakers are a gateway for voice technology in general, with 72% of smart speaker owners believing that voice technology works well. Among non-owners, who presumably access smart assistants via their phones, that belief is only shared by 38% of survey respondents. What’s more, 58% of smart speaker owners use voice to access the internet or control devices every day; among non-owners, that number is just 24%.Smart speakers are most often used to listen to music, check the weather and set alarms, but news consumption is quickly catching up, according to Adobe’s survey. 46% of smart speaker users check the news with their device, and 77% of that group query their speaker for news at least once a day. “For any content provider looking to drive more consumption of their stories, be it a news organization or radio station, voice offers a very compelling growth opportunity.” said Besik.The latest Adobe Analytics voice survey also shows some growth potential for device makers looking to tap into unmet demands. 22% of smart speaker owners reported having such a device in their office. Bathroom use is at 13%, and only 5% reported having a smart speaker outside. Sonos in particular hinted at plans to expand into out-of-home devices in 2019, which could help the company fill a gap for consumers who increasingly rely on voice assistants.

He will meet Rocky Fielding in a 12-round, super middleweight bout Dec. 15, 2018. (AP Photo/Richard Drew) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Canelo Alvarez is boxing’s new $365 million man.Alvarez has signed an 11-fight deal that his promotional company says is the richest athlete contract in sports history, guaranteeing the Mexican middleweight champion at least that much money to have his fights shown on the sports-streaming service DAZN, beginning with his next bout.Alvarez will move up in weight to challenge WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding on Dec. 15 at Madison Square Garden.A massive moneymaker when he fought on pay-per-view, Alvarez will be able to be seen for much cheaper through the subscription service that launched in the U.S. in September and now features perhaps the two biggest figures in boxing in Alvarez and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.“We have No. 1 and No. 2. They’re the two most important fighters in the world,” DAZN executive chairman John Skipper said. “Canelo fighting on DAZN, we believe that that will help us attract some of the other fighters, some of the other premier fighters.”Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) is coming off a victory over Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight showdown in September. That fight, like most of boxing’s biggest, was shown on pay-per-view. It cost $84.95 to be seen in high definition.And while planning his next fight, Golden Boy Promotions also needed a place to put it. With HBO bowing out of boxing after this year, the company had talks with Showtime, ESPN and Turner Sports about televising Alvarez’s future bouts.But Skipper made an aggressive offer for DAZN (pronounced Da-Zone) when he met with Golden Boy about two weeks ago and the deal was quickly finalized.“John came with the best deal. John Skipper came, he wasn’t playing games,” Golden Boy President Eric Gomez said. “He said, our first meeting with him over two weeks ago, he came to our office and said, ‘I’ve got a blank check, I’m not leaving until we make a deal.’ And he put his money where his mouth is.”Skipper said it wasn’t quite a blank check, but one that ensured Alvarez wouldn’t be taking a pay cut to leave pay-per-view. He said Alvarez’s last three fights generated 3.6 million buys and nearly a quarter of a billion dollars, making him someone who can be transformative to a subscription service focused largely — at least for now — on combat sports.“So I’ve got to find those fans,” Skipper said. “They are going to want to watch his fights and they’re going to get to buy them for a lot less expensive than they did before.”It will cost them $9.99 a month for a subscription in the U.S. Under the five-year partnership, Golden Boy also will put on up to 10 fight nights per year that will stream live on DAZN beginning in early 2019.Gomez said Alvarez is committed to fighting 11 times during the deal and willing to fight any of the contenders at 160 or 168 pounds. Alvarez said for now his plan is to return to 160 after the bout against Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs), a British fighter who appeared significantly taller than Alvarez, who will be trying to win a title in his third weight class.A third fight with Golovkin would be a natural after their draw and Alvarez’s narrow victory in the rematch, but there would be plenty more options at middleweight if they don’t meet again.Whoever he ends up with, at least Alvarez knows now where it can be seen.“I’ve always said that when one door closes another one opens and we’re very happy with this new alliance that we’ve made with DAZN,” Alvarez said through an interpreter. “Forget about what the price is, the amount of money that we’re making. The most important thing is that fans can enjoy this fight at a very low price.”last_img read more
