  • TSX closes near threemonth low on weak jobs report trade concerns from

    first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock market closed at a three-month low Friday amid a weak jobs report and reinforced trade concerns following a presidential tweet threatening more tariffs on China.Friday’s session was a bit of a roller coaster ride, with U.S. President Donald Trump’s statement that he’s prepared to impose tariffs on another US$267 billion in Chinese imports having a negative impact, said Cavan Yie, portfolio manager at Manulife Asset Management.The potential tariffs would be on top of tariffs Trump has said he will slap on US$200 billion worth of goods that ignited retaliation from Beijing on U.S. goods.“Whenever there is some uncertainty on tariffs and how much and how soon markets kind of react pretty violently,” he said in an interview.In addition to China, uncertainty remains over NAFTA as negotiations resumed this week between Canada and the U.S. with the possibility that any deal won’t come until the end of the month.Intensifying trade wars could potentially accelerate the inevitable end of the bull run, Yie added.The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 10.67 points to 16,090.27, after falling to a low of 15,994.32 on 225 million shares traded.The decrease was led by base metals and telecom services sectors, which each fell by less than one per cent. Financials, health care, industrials, consumer discretionary, consumer staples and utilities were also down.Information technology, gold, materials, energy and real estate were up on the day.The trading week ended with a report that Canada lost 51,600 net jobs last month that drove the national unemployment rate to six per cent, up from 5.8 per cent in July.The negative labour figures were fuelled by the loss of 92,000 part-time positions, but the creation of 40,400 full-time jobs.In the United States, the unemployment rate stayed at 3.9 per cent, near an 18-year low. However, wages grew more than had been forecast.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 79.33 points at 25,916.54. The S&P 500 index was down 6.37 points at 2,871.68, while the Nasdaq composite was down 20.18 points at 7,902.54.Stronger wage growth wasn’t good for equity markets because they signalled that the Federal Reserve may need to hike interest rates faster than expected, Yie said.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average of 75.96 cents US compared with an average of 75.83 cents US on Thursday.The October crude contract was down two cents at US$67.75 per barrel and the October natural gas contract was up 0.4 of a cent at US$2.78 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was down $3.90 at US$1,200.40 an ounce and the December copper contract was down 1.4 cents at US$2.62 a pound.last_img read more

  • Aid agencies face life threatening funding crisis as monsoon rains barrel towards

    Without new funding, tens of thousands of people who poured into the camps, fleeing violence triggered in Myanmar last August will be at risk, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) cautioned.“We cannot wait for funding to come in after the emergency is over and possibly preventable tragedies have occurred,” said John McCue, IOM’s Senior Operations Coordinator in Cox’s Bazar.“We need to be able to act now if lives are to be saved,” he added.Almost a million Rohingya refugees live in the Cox’s Bazar district under tarpaulins, on steep, sandy slopes – 25,000 of whom have been have been identified as at the highest risk of landslides.Without aid, numerous will have to remain in these hazardous locations and hundreds of thousands of others will also be at risk if roads become impassible, blocking access to aid supplies and medical services.“Tarp stocks are also rapidly running out and IOM, which oversees shelter distribution, reports that by mid-May supplies will fall below critical levels,” maintained Mr. McCue, noting that without more funding, neither new shelters nor replacements would be available to those who lost homes during storms.He also pointed out that other risks included safe water supply systems, which if collapsed could put hundreds of thousands of refugees in jeopardy of waterborne diseases.Only nine per cent of a $951million joint agency response plan has been secured. Of that, $182 million allocated to provide Cox’s Bazar with assistance through December 2018 is facing a shortfall of almost $151 million.Aid staff on the ground are working to improve shelters, secure key access roads and have emergency response services ready should the worst happens, “but the harsh truth is that we cannot keep doing that if we do not have the funds,” said Mr. McCue stated.IOM, the World Food Programme and the UN refugee agency are working alongside the government of Bangladesh and others to manage the scale of the response in Cox’s Bazar – the world’s biggest refugee settlement.“If significant funding is not secured in the next few weeks to keep operations running, there is a high likelihood that many children, women and men may die, when they could have otherwise been saved,” concluded Mr. McCue. read more

  • Protests expected as Angela Merkel visits Athens

    first_imgGERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA Merkel arrives in Greece today to support its embattled government amid planned new anti-austerity protests, her first visit there since the economic crisis erupted more than two years ago.DemonstratorsThousands of police will create a safety zone for Merkel’s meetings with conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and President Carolos Papoulias, aiming to keep demonstrators at arm’s length.Some 6,500 officers backed by water cannon and a helicopter have been mobilised for her six-hour visit, the first since 2010.Merkel had faced criticism in Germany for failing to visit Athens thus far during the crisis, unlike EU President Herman Van Rompuy, European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso and eurozone chief Jean-Claude Juncker.In August, when Samaras visited Berlin, Merkel had insisted that she wanted the debt-wracked country to stay in the euro and pledged German help after crisis talks with the Greek prime minister.ReformMerkel’s office on Monday said she would convey a message of support for “ambitious” cuts already in place in Athens and encouragement to stay the course.Samaras will greet Merkel at Athens airport at 10.30AM GMT and the two will hold talks at 11.15AM, after which they will address the press. Merkel is then scheduled to see President Papoulias at 1.45PM.Leftist and Communist-affiliated unions are holding separate protests at 10.00 and a three-hour strike has been called in Athens from midday onwards.The police declared a ban on “public gatherings and demonstrations” in a broad section of the city centre that includes the German embassy, parliament and the offices of government but the union gatherings lie outside this area and will be held as planned.Merkel’s route from the airport is also off-bounds. The main Greek unions said in a statement: Syndicates and all of society will give a dynamic response to the plans of Merkel and European powers that are imposed by creditors and implemented by the government.The German leader is a popular hate figure in Greece, often blamed for harsh austerity measures imposed by the government in return for vital international aid, and has in the past been depicted as Adolf Hitler in tabloid caricatures.Samaras has assured Merkel that she will be “welcomed in the appropriate way for the leader of a major power and a friendly country”, but many in Greece object to the visit.The visit comes at a crucial time for the heavily indebted country, which is in the midst of negotiations with its international creditors over a 13.5-billion-euro ($17.5 billion) package of cuts.A positive outcome is vital to unblock a 31.5-billion-euro installment from Greece’s EU-IMF bailout package, which is needed to recapitalise banks and repay outstanding domestic debts in a country that is heading for a sixth straight year of recession.Pics: Petrol bombs thrown at Greek police during anti-austerity protests>last_img read more

  • Joan Burton Above all else the Israelis need to stand back from

    first_imgTÁNAISTE JOAN BURTON has said that “above all else” the Israelis need to “stand back from some of the actions they have taken” in the Gaza conflict in order to achieve a “viable ceasefire”.The Tánaiste was speaking after the violence in the Middle East escalated considerably over the weekend.The death toll on the Palestinian is now estimated at 502 as the Israeli offensive entered its 14th day with 18 Israeli Defence Forces killed so far during its ground operation – 13 of them on Sunday alone.“The critical issue is to actually establish a sustainable ceasefire, that requires both sides to stand back – committments by Hamas in relation to rockets being fired into Israel.“But above all else that the Israelis would stand back from some of the actions that they have taken so that a viable ceasefire can actually be set in motion,” she saidBurton said there needs to be an agreement on “a sustainable long-term ceasefire” to end what she said was the “appalling violence death and carnage” that is happening Gaza.Pressed on whether the government should expel or threaten to expel the Israeli ambassador, Burton would only say that Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan is available to meet with the diplomat.Speaking ahead of the MacGill Summer School in Glenties, she said: “What we do need is a viable ceasefire because given the density of overcrowding in Gaza there is no other safe place for a lot of the civilians involved to go to.“I think that that is critical that the Israelis acknowledge that and that they actually stand back from what they’ve been doing. Hamas equally though need to desist in relation to rocket firing into Israel.”Read: UN Security Council calls for “immediate truce” in GazaRead: Councillor removes Israeli flag from Dun Laoghaire HarbourPoll: Would you support the expelling of the Israeli Ambassador to Ireland?last_img read more

  • Game of the Year Kanye West Meets Salmon in Fins of the

    first_img Review: ‘Fantasy Strike’ Is A Fighting Game That Understands…Game of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Best Video Games of 2018 For too long the definition of “Game of the Year” has been unfairly narrow. How boring is it to see every website shower the same stale AAA games with praise at the end of each holiday season? So at Geek.com we’re doing what we can to put a stop to this in Game of the Year, a new column celebrating worthy alternative picks for the year’s greatest game regardless of genre, platform, year of release, or even quality. Here, any game can be Game of the Year!Different Games is a video game festival held here in New York City where developers show off games a little left of center compared to AAA games or even prominent indie games. So it’s a hot bed of Game of the Year candidates. When I went to the conference earlier this year I played a meat-based dating sim, horror empathy text adventures, and multiple games about female anatomy including ones with… unique controllers.But this week’s Game of the Year is a game from that show with maybe a smaller brain but a great big heart. You Don’t Know the Half of It: Fins of the Father, by James Earl Cox III and Joe Cox of Seemingly Pointless, is a fishy “music video(game),” and it’s the Game of the Year.Plenty of video games feature music, and rhythm games like Guitar Hero incorporate music videos into their presentation, but the minutes-long Fins of the Father markets itself an interactive music video. I’m sure this isn’t the first instance of this idea, but it’s still pretty novel. The song in question? “Bound 2” by Kanye West, or rather, the dance-friendly “Nobody to Love” remix of that song by Sigma.A video game even tangentially inspired by Kanye West is already overqualified for Game of the Year, but that’s just the beginning of Fins of Father’s absurd delights. Here’s the thing, this game has barely anything to do with its song, except for maybe being a reference to South Park’s Kanye West fish jokes. The game begins, the music starts, and we saw some pixel graphic versions of clips from the “Bound 2” music video (with added fish), but the game then shoots off in its own wonderfully weird direction.Players control Salmontha, an anthropomorphic salmon race car driver trying to live up to the memory of her deceased father. Yes, this a racing game, not a rhythm game. The music just adds extra emotional impact. But that’s just the half of it. No matter how well you race, your car eventually explodes (sort of synced to the song), and mourners stress how your fate mirrors your father.You then meet your father in Fish Valhalla, hop on his motorcycle, and shoot down hellish undersea enemies to save this aquatic afterlife as the music keeps playing. One minute the game is Pole Position and the next it’s Gradius.When I finished Fins of the Father I briefly convinced myself it was the long-awaited Frog Fractions 2. While I hope that secret sequel is a more ambitious work, Fins of the Father’s sense of humor and willingness to change genres on a whim is definitely in line with that Game of the Year. Plus its proof that playing a dope song in the background of your game can make it way better. So bring on the music video(games)!You Don’t Know the Half of It: Fins of the Father is available for free on PC. It’s a short but heartfelt musical tribute to the bonds between parents, children, and salmon, and it’s the Game of the Year.Check back next week to read about the next Game of the Year!

  • 19300 people without power in San Diego County due to wind conditions

    first_img Posted: December 7, 2017 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter 19,300 people without power in San Diego County due to wind conditions December 7, 2017center_img , SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — SDG&E cut the power in parts of Julian and other areas in the backcountry Thursday as a way to minimize the threat of live power lines being blown down and igniting a fire.Early Thursday morning, the power was interrupted for about two hours in the main district of Julian. The outage was not part of the utility’s shutoff plan and SDG&E said the short-lived outage was due to a different cause which has yet to be determined. Fortunately, SDG&E brought a backup generator to downtown Julian, which is now doing the job of keeping the lights on.However, other parts of the mountain community remain in the dark, affected by the utility company’s plan to deliberately de-energize the power lines.That preemptive shut-off has led to concern and some inconvenience among Julian residents who say they’ve been told this deliberate outage could last for several more days. As of 2:30 pm Thursday, a spokesperson for SDG&E reported 19,000 customers were without power. 12,000 customers did not have electricity because of the utility company’s preemptive shut-off.last_img read more

  • 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition gets the slammers it should have

    first_img Tags 30 Photos 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 3 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition makes a grand entrance Lincoln When Lincoln brought back the Continental nameplate for 2017 after a 15-year hiatus, there was one iconic feature missing: suicide doors. First appearing on the fourth-generation Elwood Engel-designed 1961 Continental and burned into the collective consciousness during the opening credits of every Entourage episode, the Lincoln Continental and center-opening doors go together like ranch dressing on pizza. Yum.Happily, those suicide doors are making a comeback. The 2019 model year marks the Continental’s 80th birthday, and to celebrate, Lincoln is building a limited batch of Coach Door Edition Continentals with center-opening doors that pay homage to the Contis of the 1960s. But the Coach Door Edition is more than just a top Black Label-spec Continental with set of hinges moved aft. This Lincoln rides on a wheelbase 6 inches longer than the standard Continental, meaning there’s a ton of legroom out back. In addition, rear-seat passengers will enjoy a back-seat center console with a hideaway tray table and tablet holder. Folks in the second row won’t be the only ones in comfort, though. The front seats feature 30-way power adjustability, and no matter which door you open, a numbered sill plate will remind you of where your special Lincoln sits among its limited-edition production run.Although those rear-hinged doors to the back seats are 1960s-inspired, the Continental Coach Door Edition offers the latest in tech, such as Sync 3 infotainment and embedded navigation on an 8-inch touchscreen that can also run Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Coach Door Conti will also keep your ears drooling with its 19-speaker, Revel Ultima premium audio system.The limited Lincoln will also feature the latest in driver-assistance tech, such as a head-up display, collision-mitigation braking, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and automated parallel parking. Enlarge ImageThe rear-hinged doors can only be opened when the vehicle is in park, so no need to worry about someone opening these huge swingers into the wind. Lincoln Powering this special model will be Lincoln’s 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine pumping 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.If those rear-hinged doors aren’t your style, you’ll still be able to snag a Continental with conventionally-hinged rear doors, but if you’re hankering for some suicides, you’ll have to hurry. Lincoln just opened the order books for only 80 of these things, though more are expected to be produced in 2020. Pricing is expected to be announced at the beginning of next year, but expect an MSRP north of $100,000, with the first examples hitting showrooms next summer. That’s a ton of money for a Continental — roughly a $20,000 increase over the already lofty Black Label. But for folks who want this bit of iconic style, it could be worth the money.

  • Windows 10 version 1903 Windows Update improvements

    first_imgWindows 10 version 1903: Windows Update improvements by Martin Brinkmann on November 16, 2018 in Windows – 23 commentsThe next feature update for Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1903, may include better options to pause Windows updates and improve the operating system’s Active Hours functionality.One of the things that I hear over and over again from Windows administrators and users is that they would like control over the updating process.Microsoft introduced two new update related features in the most recent Windows 10 Insider build. Both options have been added to the Windows Update page of the Settings application.Just use Windows-I to open the Settings application and open Update & Security to see the new options. Note that these will be included in the next feature update; the new options are included in Insider builds only currently.The very first change displays a pause option directly on the main Windows Update settings page. A click on “Pause updates for 7 days” blocks any updates for the selected period.It is currently not possible to undo that on the same page; you need to open the advanced options and modify the pause period there. Seems unlikely that Microsoft will keep it like that on that page.The feature is not really a new feature but it adds some visibility to the pause update functionality of the operating system.Windows 10 users who want to pause for a different period need to open the Advanced options on the same page to do so.Also worth noting is that some updates will still be installed; this is for instance the case for Windows Defender definition updates.Active Hours improvementsActive Hours was introduced in 2016 in Windows 10 as a way to block Windows from rebooting the device automatically after installation of updates.The feature had several shortcomings including the fixed maximum length limit for the feature and missing options to set different Active hours depending on a schedule that deviates from a typical 9 to 5 work scenario.Microsoft extended Active Hours to a maximum of 18 hours in previous versions already. The change in Windows 10 version 1903 introduces a dynamic component to Active Hours. A click on Active Hours under Windows Update displays the new option: Automatically adjust active hours for me based on my daily usage adjusts Active Hours automatically based on device activity.If that will lead to fewer unwanted reboots of the system or more remains to be seen. Windows recommended to set Active Hours from 14:00 to 15:00 on my test system which seemed awfully short considering that I work on the machine regularly.The operating system highlights the recommended period for Active Hours on the page so that you know what it will be set to initially. Since it is dynamic, it might — and probably will — change on a day to day basis.Now You: Which changes would you like to see in this regard?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 version 1903: Windows Update improvementsDescriptionThe next feature update for Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1903, may include better options to pause Windows updates and Active Hours functionality.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

  • Go back to the enewsletter Japans Ishikawa Prefec

    first_imgGo back to the enewsletterJapan’s Ishikawa Prefecture showcased its culture and cuisine to travel agents and trade partners at an event held in Sydney earlier this week.Located on a peninsula by the Sea of Japan on the western coast of Honshu, Ishikawa is home to the famous Samurai town of Kanazawa. The city is easily accessed from Tokyo and Osaka and with the upcoming Rugby World Cup in 2019 and the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, tourism to Japan is projected to reach record highs in the months leading up to these events.Kanazawa is readily accessible from Tokyo, with 10 daily 1-hour flights operating from/to Komatsu Airport and a daily 1.15-hour flight from Narita. The Hokuriku Shinkansen (Bullet Train) also operates between Tokyo and Kanazawa, with a journey time of 2 hours and 28 minutes. A number of international cruise lines are also now including stops at Kanazawa Port, which is just 20-minutes from Central Kanazawa. MSC Splendida, Diamond Princess and Caledonian Sky have visited the port in 2018.Ishikawa is regarded as one of Japan’s great hubs for traditional arts and culture, and it is also the birthplace of the finest food culture in Japan, with attendees at Monday night’s event at The Grace Hotel introduced to some of the culinary delights on offer.Ishikawa Prefecture’s “Kaga” cuisine is regarded as some of the most prestigious in Japan, drawing on products from internationally renowned sake brewers, seafood caught fresh from the Sea of Japan and produce grown on fertile Ishikawa land. The natural flavours of the high-quality ingredients are preserved through the artisanal craftsmanship of Ishikawa’s culinary masters, not unlike the detailed artistry of Ishikawa’s traditional ceramics and lacquerware, producing cuisine that is not only appetising but also visually wondrous—a treat for all the senses.The authentic “Kaga” Kaiseki banquet with Geisha entertainment featured creations by the head chef of one of Ishikawa’s most accomplished ryokans.

  • TV station hires extra security after interview wi

    first_imgTV station hires extra security after interview with Canadian prof prompts threats A British news channel says it’s consulting security specialists because one of its presenters has been the target of threats following an interview with controversial Canadian professor Jordan Peterson.Channel 4 news editor Ben de Pear said on Twitter that journalist Cathy Newman has been the subject of “vicious misogynistic abuse, nastiness, and threat” following the conversation, which he says is “an unacceptable response to a robust and engaging debate.”Peterson, a professor at the University of Toronto, is best known for refusing to use gender-neutral pronouns for transgender and non-binary people who request them.The conversation between Newman and Peterson has been viewed more than two million times since it was posted to YouTube on Tuesday.In the occasionally adversarial interview, Newman challenges Peterson as he suggests that men and women are fundamentally different.After de Pear announced that Newman had been the target of abuse, Peterson took to Twitter to tell his 300,000 followers not to threaten Newman.“If you’re threatening her, stop. Try to be civilized in your criticism. It was words. Words, people, words. Remember those?” he wrote.In the segment, he expressed the view that while it would be ideal to allow the genders equal opportunity, women are likely to shy away from careers in the engineering whereas men would steer clear of nursing.Asked whether gender equality is desirable, Peterson said “if it means equality of outcome, then almost certainly it’s undesirable.”Peterson cited Newman as an example of a successful woman, but attributed that success in part to her being “disagreeable”.Agreeability, he argued, has played a role in preventing the majority of women from attaining the same career heights as many men.In addition to the reported threats, Peterson’s followers suggested that Newman was “putting words in his mouth”.Neither Peterson nor Newman immediately responded to interview requests, but the latter said on Twitter that she doesn’t plan on suing anyone.“I thoroughly enjoyed my bout with @jordanbpeterson as did 100s of 1000s of our viewers. Viva feminism, viva free speech,” she wrote. by The Canadian Press Posted Jan 20, 2018 9:46 am PDT Last Updated Jan 20, 2018 at 10:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
