Loonie advances amid strong Canadian jobs data weak US employment report

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 7, 2014 6:58 am MDT Loonie advances amid strong Canadian jobs data, weak U.S. employment report AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed higher Friday as employment data for January came in ahead of expectations.The loonie closed up 0.26 of a cent to 90.59 cents US as Statistics Canada said that 29,400 jobs were created after the economy shed 44,000 jobs in December. Economists had expected that the economy would create about 20,000 jobs last month.Canada’s national unemployment rate slid to 7.0 per cent in the first month of the year, compared with 7.2 per cent in December.The loonie also benefited from a greenback that weakened on a big jobs miss in the United States, where the Labor Department reported that 113,00 jobs were created in January against the approximately 180,000 that had been expected.Still, more people began looking for work in January, and some of the jobless were hired, reducing the unemployment rate to 6.6 per cent from 6.7 per cent. That’s the lowest since October 2008.The performance followed a meagre gain of 74,000 jobs in December that was largely blamed on the weather.The January employment report has been seen as key as markets have experienced much volatility in recent weeks on worries of a possible slowing of manufacturing in China and the United States.Emerging economies have also been a worry because markets in those countries have been hit as the Federal Reserve began to cut back on its key stimulus measure of massive bond buying. The stimulus had kept long long-term rates low and encouraged a flood of cheap money into emerging markets.But the Fed has moved twice in the past two months to cut back on those asset purchases, down a total of $20 billion to $65 billion a month, and the emerging markets now have to deal with an outflow of funds.Traders also took in the final speech by outgoing Bank of Canada senior deputy governor Tiff Macklem.He says while the fundamental drivers of growth and future inflation appear to be strengthening, inflation is expected to remain well below target for some time, which means the downside risks have grown in importance.He added that the central bank is still trying to figure out exactly why inflation has been on the decline since 2012 and fallen below its ideal target of two per cent.On the commodity markets, March crude on the New York Mercantile Exchange was $2.04 higher to US$99.88 a barrel.March copper moved ahead one cent to US$3.24 a pound while April gold bullion gained $5.70 to US$1,262.90 an ounce. read more

Yellen says key task of central bank is to respond to economys

by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Apr 16, 2014 10:27 am MDT Yellen says key task of central bank is to respond to economy’s fluctuations AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen, center, speaks during a luncheon at the Economic Club of New York on Wednesday, April 16, 2014. Yellen said Wednesday that the U.S. job market still needs help from the Fed and that the central bank must remain intent on adjusting its policy to respond to unforeseen challenges. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Wednesday that the U.S. job market still needs help from the Fed and that the central bank must remain intent on adjusting its policy to respond to unforeseen challenges.In her first major speech on Fed policy, Yellen sought to explain the Fed’s shifting guidance on its interest-rate policy, which at times has confused or jarred investors. She said the Fed’s policies “must respond to significant unexpected twist and turns the economy may make.”“Thus far in the recovery and to this day, there is little question that the economy has remained far from maximum employment,” Yellen told an audience at the Economic Club of New York.She said the Fed’s forecast for moderate growth has changed little since last fall despite the severe winter. Fed officials still see only a gradual return to full employment over the next two to three years, Yellen said.Yellen said the Fed continues to face challenges in its efforts to invigorate the economy’s recovery from the Great Recession. It’s been reducing its bond purchases, which have been intended to keep loan rates low to stimulate spending and growth. But the Fed has kept its benchmark short-term rate at a record low near zero since late 2008.Yellen’s speech Wednesday and her answers to questions afterward served to confirm investors’ view that the new Fed chair is firmly in the camp of “doves”— officials who are more concerned about high unemployment than about the threat of future high inflation.But in response to a question from Harvard economist Martin Feldstein, Yellen insisted that the central bank would respond quickly to rising inflation should the need arise.“As the recovery proceeds, it is obvious we will need to (at some point) tighten monetary policy to avoid overshooting our target,” Yellen said, referring to the Fed’s goal of inflation rising at 2 per cent a year. “Overshooting that goal, we have learned in past episodes and past recoveries, can be very costly to reverse.”But Yellen stressed that inflation is now rising only about 1 per cent a year. She said a bigger fear is that prices are rising too slowly and that if the economy suffered an unexpected shock, it could succumb to deflation — a period, as in the past two decades in Japan, when falling prices can slow economic growth.After taking over from Ben Bernanke on Feb. 3, Yellen presided over her first Fed meeting on March 18-19. At that meeting, the Fed pared its monthly bond buying by $10 billion for a third time to $55 billion. The Fed is expected to keep reducing the purchases at each meeting this year before ending them altogether by year’s end.At a news conference after the March meeting, Yellen had unsettled financial markets when she answered a question asking her to explain the Fed’s commitment to keep short-term rates low for a “considerable time” after the bond purchases end.Yellen said a “considerable time” could mean “something on the order of around six months.” That startled investors, who viewed the comment as a signal the Fed might start raising rates by spring 2015, earlier than investors had been expecting. Many analysts don’t think the first Fed rate hike will occur until late in 2015.But in a speech in Chicago on March 31 and again in her remarks Wednesday, Yellen made clear that she thinks the still subpar economic recovery will continue to need the help of low rates for some time. An increase in short-term interest rates would elevate borrowing costs and could hurt stock prices. read more

Countries must repeal laws that discriminate against LGBT individuals – UN officials

“The fight against homophobia is a core part of the broader battle for human rights for all,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his remarks to the International Forum on the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), held in The Hague, the Netherlands. “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights promises a world that is free and equal, and we will only honour that promise if everyone – without exception – enjoys the protection they deserve.”In his message, which was delivered by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay on Thursday, Mr. Ban called for more public education to end negative stereotypes and underlined Governments’ responsibility to the take the lead in promoting greater understanding of the issue.“We know what needs to be done. Draconian laws used to criminalize and punish LGBT people must be replaced by new laws that are in harmony with universal human rights conventions and protect everyone from discrimination on grounds of their sexual orientation and gender identity.”During the same forum, Ms. Pillay stressed that while there has been progress in recent years in overcoming homophobia “many States are still reluctant to acknowledge the extent of violence and discrimination meted out to those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex.”Ms. Pillay highlighted three areas that require immediate attention. The first is hate crimes, which “take place with alarming regularity in all regions of the world,” and range from bullying to physical assault, torture, kidnapping and murder.The second concern is the criminalization of homosexuality. Some 76 countries continue to outlaw same sex relationships, violating citizen’s right to privacy. Penalties range from jail sentences to execution. The prevalence of discriminatory practices against LGBT is the third area of concern, and Ms. Pillay noted that in many countries, LGBT individuals lack legal protection by national laws and in some instances States are actively contributing to this type of discrimination.In 2011, 85 States signed a statement expressing their concern at human rights violations perpetrated against LGBT people, and the UN Human Rights Council adopted the first ever resolution to specifically address the issue.Last year, the UN Human Rights Office produced a guide to LGBT rights entitled ‘Born Free and Equal’ that sets out States’ core legal obligations.Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) Helen Clark said that in spite of recent progress, much remains to be done to secure LGBT rights. She noted that UNDP is on the ground in over 170 countries and territories, implementing programmes focusing on the rights of all people to access important services and live lives of dignity. “Many of the people we work with are excluded from development opportunities specifically because of their sexual orientation or gender expression, contributing to the staggering levels of inequality around the world. Such inequalities impede development progress for society as a whole.”Miss Clark added that through its work in human rights, access to justice, and HIV law reform, UNDP is partnering with Government, civil society and the LGBT community in many countries to tackle these gross inequities. The Executive Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Michel Sidibé said that if the HIV/AIDS epidemic is to be eliminated, there need to be greater efforts to ensure LGBT individuals are not prevented from receiving health services.“If we are going to end AIDS we need the LGBT community more than ever,” Mr. Sidibé told reporters during a press conference at UN Headquarters in New York.“I am outraged that we still have to fight prejudice, stigma, discrimination, exclusion, criminalization of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, not only in their homes, but in their streets, police stations and court rooms.“It is unacceptable that only one in 10 gay men have access to life-saving HIV services. HIV prevalence among men who have sex with men is 19 times higher than in the general population.”To mark the Day, OHCHR has released a video entitled ‘The Riddle’ which asks: What exists in every corner of the world but remains illegal in more than 70 countries? The answer: Being gay, being lesbian, bisexual or transgender.Produced in collaboration with the Purpose Foundation, ‘The Riddle’ was watched by more than 60,000 people within 24 hours of its release on YouTube. While not an officially observed UN day, the majority of which have been established by the UN General Assembly or designated by UN specialized agencies, the International Day Against Homophobia has become an important day for millions around the world to pause and remember the victims of homophobic violence and discrimination, and to make the case for genuine equality for LGBT people. read more

Alerte Météo France orange la vigilance à la neige maintenue sur 27

first_imgAlerte Météo France orange : la vigilance à la neige maintenue sur 27 départementsMardi matin, Météo France a réduit sa vigilance orange pour la neige et le verglas à 27 départements. L’Ile-de-France, désormais épargnée, a levé son alerte de niveau 2. Alors que 37 départements avaient été placés en vigilance orange lundi, ce ne sont plus que 27 qui sont concernés. Mardi, à 6H, Météo France a en effet réduit l’alerte qu’elle avait émise la veille face à l’arrivée de chutes de neige. Les départements touchés s’étendent donc désormais du nord au sud-est mais l’Ile-de-France n’est plus touchée et a levé son alerte de niveau 2. Bien que les intempéries aient commencé à tomber tôt dans l’après-midi dans plusieurs départements, la neige a fini par se transformer en pluie en fin de soirée. Ainsi, la situation s’y est révélée moins sérieuse qu’attendue.À lire aussi(VIDÉO) Un radar détecte un nuage de coccinelles de 80 kilomètres de largeDes difficultés de circulation mais sans accidents notables, ont été relevées mardi 15 janvier, peu avant 5 heures dans le nord, l’est et le sud-ouest de la France touchés par des chutes de neige, l’Ile-de-France étant épargnée, a expliqué le Centre national d’information routière (Cnir). Dans la zone nord (Aisne, Nord, Oise, Pas-de-Calais, Somme) la circulation a été qualifiée de “délicate” par le Cnir sur les autoroutes et de “difficile” sur le réseau secondaire. Dans l’est, soit les départements des Ardennes, de la Marne, de l’Aube, de la Nièvre et de l’Yonne, la circulation était “délicate” sur l’A26, l’A4, l’A5, l’A19, l’A6 et l’A77. Dans le sud-ouest l’A20 a été coupée au nord de Limoges en raison d’un poids lourd en portefeuille. Dans le Rhône, et en particulier dans l’agglomération lyonnaise, le trafic est en partie paralysé et la préfecture a recommandé aux automobilistes de limiter au plus possible leur déplacement. Une couche de neige d’environ 5 cm recouvrait le centre-ville et les collines de la ville sont devenues impraticables pour les véhicules, selon le site de TF1. En Ile-de-France, la circulation est redevenue fluide mais les intempéries se manifestent toujours.Enfin, le risque d’avalanche est toujours présent dans les Pyrénées balayés par des fortes pluies et de la neige. Les températures, elles, restent basses sur l’ensemble du territoire et un pic de consommation électrique a été constaté : celle-ci a atteint 86.600 mégawatts à 19h, selon les données du gestionnaire du réseau électrique à  haute tension, RTE (filiale autonome d’EDF).Le 15 janvier 2013 à 10:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Reed Business Information Sues McGrawHill Over Corporate Espionage

first_imgTwo of the construction data industry’s biggest players are now embroiled in a bitter legal battle.Reed Construction Data, a unit of b-to-b publisher Reed Business Information, filed suit yesterday in federal court against McGraw-Hill Construction Dodge, charging corporate espionage.According to the 60-page complaint, RCD claims Dodge unlawfully accessed confidential and secret trade information from RCD by hiring consultants to subscribe to RCD’s confidential data, using made up names and fake companies. It also alleges that Dodge manipulated the RCD information to create “misleading comparisons” between Dodge and RCD’s products and services “in an attempt to mislead the marketplace.” The RCD complaint cites 11 counts of misconduct by Dodge dating back to 2002 and says efforts to obtain competitive information from RCD dates back to “the mid- to late-1990s.” RCD is seeking an unspecified amount in lost profits, punitive damages and injunctive relief.According to RCD CEO Iain Melville, Dodge’s alleged actions represent an attempt “to force RCD out of business and obtain a monopoly over the construction data industry.”A spokesperson for McGraw-Hill Construction told FOLIO: the RCD lawsuit is unfounded. “We believe that Reed’s legal claims are without merit, and we intend to defend against them vigorously,” the spokesperson said. “We take these allegations very seriously and are committed to ensuring that all employees comply with our Code of Business Ethics.”This isn’t the first time these two companies have been involved in a legal dispute. In February 2000, McGraw-Hill filed a similar suit against RBI’s (then Cahners Business Information), alleging it “illegally and systematically” misappropriated confidential and proprietary business information over several months, and engaged in unfair trade practices. Reed and McGraw-Hill settled that claim in March 2001. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.In April, RBI shuttered 13 of the 14 regional construction magazines published under its Associated Construction Publications group, which was managed by RCD. RBI continues to publish Construction Equipment magazine.Not long after, John White, the original co-owner of the ACP titles, reacquired the rights to the 13 shuttered titles from RBI. In late July, ACP re-launched Construction Digest and New England Construction. In August, it planned to bring back six more titles, and to have all 13 up and running again by September.Click here to read RCD’s entire complaint.last_img read more

Westlake still leading Nageak as District 40 votes are certified

first_imgThe Democratic primary results for the District 40 House seat grew closer today.Listen nowDean Westlake is challenging Barrow Rep. Bennie Nageak in the Democratic primary; in 2014, Westlake lost the race by 131 votes. (Photo by Rachel Waldholz, Alaska’s Energy Desk – Anchorage)Dean Westlake remains ahead of incumbent state Representative Benjamin Nageak, but Westlake’s lead was cut to four votes, from 21.The state election review board certified the results in Juneau, adding absentee ballots and adjusting other returns. Nageak picked up 17 votes, while Westlake’s total didn’t change. Westlake leads, 819 votes to 815.Nageak or 10 qualified voters have five days to ask for a recount. The state pays for any recounts in elections where the margin is 20 or fewer votes.Nageak has caucused with House Republicans. Alaska Republican Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock criticized the Division of Elections for certifying the results. He cited irregularities in how the election was conducted in some precincts.“It’s an absurdity that the review board or the Division of Elections director can claim that they can certify who actually won that election,” Babcock said.But Division of Elections Director Josie Bahnke said she wanted to certify District 40 first, to resolve a potential recount sooner.Nageak has hired Seattle-based lawyer Timothy McKeever to advise him. McKeever said a recount request is likely.Much of the concern has focused on the results in Shungnak, where voters were allowed to vote in both the Republican primary and in the primary for all other parties.Westlake received 47 votes in Shungnak, compared with three for Nageak. Westlake lost one vote, while Nageak gained one, in Shungnak as a result of the election review.last_img read more

SuperAwesome Launches KidSafe Streaming Platform Rukkaz EXCLUSIVE

first_img YouTube Rings in Era of Ad-Supported Originals By Making ‘Cobra Kai’ Free to Watch Related The launch could scarcely be more timely as scrutiny grows on all video platforms to make their sites safer for youngsters, even if sites were not intended for consumption by children, and as regulatory awareness grows about data collection on young users. It was recently reported that YouTube is considering removing all children’s content from its main platform as it comes under increased pressure from an FTC investigation into its data collection practices for under-13 users.Although the move from marketing service company to media provider seems a large leap, SuperAwesome is well-positioned to move into the space. It already claims to be the world’s largest kid-safe ad platform in the world, with clients including Mattel, Cartoon Network, and Niantic. And it has defined standards for appropriate and safe advertising in the children’s sector.“In 2005, when YouTube was founded, children barely registered as an online audience. Today they’re over 40% of all new internet users,” said SuperAwesome founder and CEO Dylan Collins. “YouTube would look very different if it was founded today. While the company has been doing good work with YouTube Kids, we have seen an overwhelming number of requests from creators, content owners and advertisers to do something about the kids online video situation. Everyone feels an additional platform actually designed for kids/family video is required.”Speaking at the Rise tech conference in Hong Kong this week, Collins expressed surprise that appointing a chief children’s officer has not yet been made a legal requirement in some jurisdictions. “Advertisers starting to realize that when they are operating in environments that are only ever designed for adults, they have huge risks in terms of brand exposure,” Collins said. He pointed out that China may currently be the world leader in devising ways to protect children on the Internet.U.K.-based SuperAwesome was founded in 2013 and reported revenue of close to $60 million for 2018. In February this year, it raised $13 million of additional financing led by Harbert European Growth Capital. The company already has almost 100 content creators (who have almost 75 million YouTube subscribers combined) signed up to their open development testing phase, with a significant waiting list. Silicon Valleywood: Content Creators Discuss if Storytelling is Driven by Data SuperAwesome, a digital-marketing startup focused on children under 13, is set to launch Rukkaz, its own video platform for kids and family content creators.The ad-supported video-on-demand site is akin to a YouTube multichannel network in that it does not seek to own or produce the kids-targeted content it supports, but rather allows creators to share video content and safely engage with their 7-to-12-year-old fans. Rukkaz is currently in open development testing with almost 100 content creators.Ahead of launch, Rukkaz claims almost $10 million of advertising revenue committed by major brands. It will be available on iOS and Android devices with a global rollout planned.The Rukkaz team is led by Paul Nunn, who was previously managing director of Outfit7, a family games and YouTube publisher — best known for its “Talking Tom and Friends” franchise — acquired by Chinese firm Zhejiang Jinke Entertainment Culture Co.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Saving the World One Science Fair at a Time

first_imgThis is where the magic happens: The main judging hall for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, the focus of the new documentary Science Fair. (Credit: Chris Ayers/Society for Science & the Public)When I was 16, I participated in the Montgomery County, Maryland science fair. My entry was–as I recognized even at the time–a fairly middling effort, more a research project than an original experiment. I was not surprised when I walked away with an appropriately middling “honorable mention” in my category. It was an inspiring experience anyway, for reasons that are perceptively captured in the marvelous new documentary Science Fair.The culture of the science fair is one of profound optimism, marked by a sense of common purpose more than a sense of competition. I was certainly a little jealous of the more ambitious projects I saw all around me, but mostly I was awed by the brainpower on display, the vast range of problems that kids my age were trying to solve (or at least to understand a little better). Science Fair, the movie, fully embraces these themes as it follows nine budding researchers from around the world working their way to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the largest competition of its kind.The resulting documentary is, in the words of co-director Cristina Costantini, “a love letter to the subculture that saved me.” She herself was an ISEF participant in her teens. That love for the science fair culture radiates from the screen, and so too does her generous affection for the can-do nerdiness of the competitors and their mentors. The competitive aspect of ISEF gives Science Fair a taut dramatic edge. Less expected, the film also crackles with humor, much of it springing from the students’ mix of self-aware insights and guileless enthusiasm. All the elements add up to an inspiring but also joyous experience.Science Fair the movie, like science fair the cultural event, is a welcome antidote to the small-minded cynicism and anti-science attitudes so much on display these days. I had a chance to speak with Costantini, as well as two of the stars of her movie: Kashfia Rahman (a high-school competitor from South Dakota) and Serena McCalla (a research teacher from Jericho High School in Long Island, who has helped nine of her students get into ISEF). A lightly edited version of our conversation follows:From left to right during our interview: Kashfia Rahman, high school ISEF competitor; Cristina Costantini, creator and co-director of Science Fair; Serena McCalla, research teacher at Jericho High School. (Credit: National Geographic)Each of you, in her own way, is a science obsessive. How did that come about? What are your origin stories?Costantini: I was a science fair competitor when I was in high school, and science fair was my escape. I went to a football-obsessed high school, and for me it was the one place where I felt truly validated for my ideas and my thoughts. Science fair taught me so much about myself. It’s probably the reason I got into a good college. It totally changed my life. I’d always wanted to do a documentary based on my own memories of what the science fair was like. Then I found these two brilliant women, among others. The past two years have been so much fun telling that story.Rahman: I’ve always loved learning, but I haven’t always liked school. School was always a little bit boring and routine for me. When I was in 6th grade, I did this little project about how Harry Potter makes people better readers. It all began from there; it became a gateway. It was my first science project, and I’ve done science fair since, always in behavioral science and psychology. [Her ISEF project was “The Dynamics of Habituation: A Neural Study of the Effects of Repeated Exposures to Risky Behaviors on Cognitive and Emotional Responses in the Adolescent.”]As I got older, science fair became an outlet for me, because my high school pretty much focuses only on athletics and it doesn’t have the resources or opportunities for kids who are interested in science. So I thought I’d continue my own nerdy little passions and keep going to science fair. It became an outlet for communication and learning — really just everything for me.Who guided you and shaped your scientific interests?Rahman: I’ve always been a  curious kid. If I ever had a question I’d look to books, the library, the internet, everything. Of course my parents always supported me in every endeavor, but the sort of subjects they’re involved in don’t necessarily align with psychology and the things that I became interested in. So as lot of it was self-discovery, lots of reading on my own. I just became more immersed in my passions as I went along.Did you run into gender or racial barriers in science?McCalla: In my undergraduate career, I was usually the only one of 500 in my classes who was a woman and black. I wouldn’t have the peer groupings in which to study, or even access to some of the old exams passed down by siblings. And there was no one else who looked like me in my courses, or who I had a close kinship with — that was a little discouraging. But I’ve always stated, if you want something in this life you can have it. I didn’t allow myself to be discouraged from continuing in science.Costantini: For me, science fair was the first early validation that made me think, “Hmmm, I can do things. My ideas can be celebrated. My thoughts are worthwhile.” I think for young girls especially that’s really, really important. So while science fair is important for everybody, I think for young women it’s especially crucial. Science fair is becoming more gender equal; it’s just about equal now. We hope that the rest of the scientific community will follow suit.Rahman: I come from a really small town in South Dakota, and I’m one of three Muslim people in a school of 900, and I’m the only person who wears a hijab. So that’s definitely something that’s hard to deal with. Doing science fair empowered me, it made me feel like I can do something that will make people know me for something other than my [religious] identity. If I do these science fair projects, people will start recognizing me for my personality and my talents rather than for my identity, which is not something that people are often appreciative of.Part of what is so moving about Science Fair is seeing the participants transformation from nerdy outsiders to insiders within the culture of science. Did you all have your own moments of transformation like that?McCalla: I never had an opportunity to do science fair in high school, I didn’t even know they existed. So when I first walked into an international science and engineering fair I was in awe. I was like: “Oh my God, my people!” Because they were all people who loved their thing, and they were striving to be excellent at their thing. It was amazing, and so enlightening, and fun. We [science fair types] are cool. Even though we seem nerdy, we’re just regular people. We’re sharing our gifts, which are our love of science, and we’re learning to help other people benefit from them.Rahman: For me it was just coming to ISEF as a bright-eyed, jaded freshman! All these kids excited about communicating science, just like me. It’s something I never found in my hometown. It was a relief. It was wonderful.Costantini: For me, you see that transformative moment in the movie: the science fair dance, where the kids really get down. I remember thinking when I was in high school, “Wow, this is actually a pretty good dance for a science fair dance.” In the movie, one of the kids says, “It’s quite lit for a science fair party,” and it is quite lit. That’s the moment when it’s not just about science, it’s about this bigger culture. You can feel the excitement when you are there.Kashfia in her natural environment, fitting brain sensors on a test subject in her high school library. (Credit: Univision)Dr. McCalla, you talk about sharing your gifts. What is the message of science fair in terms of civic duty, in terms of helping others?McCalla: Science fair allows me to encourage students to follow their passions. Because I am mentoring them, they’re now able to shine. The gift that I’m giving them, they’re returning to society at large. I get to see groundbreaking science, and 17-year-olds are doing it. That’s pretty remarkable! Now that they know they can do it, they will. That’s why I do what I do, and I hope  someone will follow up and keep doing what I do long after I’m gone.Rahman: Science fair is not about the awards and the prizes that people often see science fair as. It’s about the opportunity to communicate with a diverse group of individuals, learn about yourself – it’s about self-discovery and introspection. I think that’s very valuable in a world where we’re often told what to do or what to be. I think science fair gives you that boost in self-discovery that you can use in any field, in any endeavor that you pursue.Costantini: We live in a time when a lot of the adults in our world are acting like children, and you see a lot of the children acting like adults. For me, this movie is about reminding people what’s important, whether that be the contribution of scientists, or women in science, or the contributions of immigrants – the three of us are the children of immigrants. These are messages I think people really should be hearing right now. I also want to make people laugh, and make people fall in love with these little inspiring nerdy kids. It’s reminding us of who we are as a country and where our heart should be.An eccentric final question, if I may. Suppose you could live any arbitrary amount of time, always healthy, never aging, but everyone else would age around you. How long would you want to live?McCalla:  I want to live indefinitely. If you’re going to give me the opportunity to stay here forever, I’m down. I want to see how much we grow. I want to see if these students will fix the problems that my parents and their parents and me and my generation have caused, and I’d like to see how they fix it – if they will fix it with kindness, too. I’m seeing that these young people are not just great scientists, they’re great humans. I hope that some of the things that they’re seeing the adults do don’t jade them and make them less phenomenal. I would love to stick around and see what they do, how they rear their children and pay it forward.Rahman: I agree with Dr. Macala completely. I want the opportunity to see what the future becomes. A lot of adults are talking about how my generation is going to change the world, for better or for worse, and I really want to see how that plays through.Costantini: We’ll see how long the Earth is around. I’ll stay as long as it’s still comfortable here.last_img read more

Theres a halfnaked giant Jeff Goldblum statue in London and it is

first_img Travelweek Group CNET reports that Jurassic Jeff stands at over three metres high and stretches nearly seven metres long, weighs 331 pounds, and took more than six weeks and 250 hours to make.More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truckThat’s a whole lotta Goldblum (not like anyone’s complaining).In an interview with Yahoo!, Goldblum tried to justify the shirtless scene, which he said didn’t originally call for him to unbutton his shirt.“It’s supposed to be Costa Rica, right? So things are hot and I’m sure I’m in some sort of fever. So all the logic is that we gotta get some of these wet clothes off immediately. As I remember, I don’t think anybody fought me on that,” he said. There’s a half-naked giant Jeff Goldblum statue in London and it is glorious << Previous PostNext Post >> Friday, July 20, 2018 LONDON — Every woman’s 90s fantasy has just come true with the unveiling of a 25-foot statue of a half-naked Jeff Goldblum in front of London’s Tower Bridge.The temporary giant replica is the brainchild of Sky TV’s subscription service, Now TV, and is being used to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur thriller ‘Jurassic Park’. Placed on the lawn of Potters Field on the south bank of the Thames, the sexy statue recreates Goldblum’s infamous bare-chested scene in the 1993 blockbuster film, during which his character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, gets hot and sweaty in pursuit of dinosaurs.center_img Posted by As captivating as Giant Goldblum may be, some critics have questioned the logic behind it. ‘Jurassic Park’ has no ties to London, nor is Goldblum British. But who cares when you’ve got 23 feet of solid, sultry stud to look at?No word as to how long the statue will be in London. Fans who can’t get to London can get their Goldblum fix at the theatre, where ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ is currently playing. Share Tags: Art, Funny, Londonlast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Finnair has reported a

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterFinnair has reported an increase of more than 20 per cent in Australian bookings for the popular off-line carrier during the first quarter of 2016 over the same period last year.Finnair Country Sales Manager – Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, Geoff Stone, said these bookings, together with forward business already confirmed from this market for 2016 indicated a ”strong year ahead” for the acclaimed Finnish carrier.Mr Stone said the introduction of the much-anticipated A350-XWB Hong Kong service last month was of specific interest for Australian travellers, many of whom connect with their Finnair European and North American flights in Hong Kong and Singapore, where the A350 will enter service later this year.”There was much talk about the A350s and the setting of new benchmarks in comfort and technology when Finnair was announced last year as the first European airline to fly this aircraft and commenced with the long-haul service from Helsinki to Shanghai last November.”Mr Stone also attributed the strong bookings out of Australia to the continual inclusion of new and seasonal destinations to its global network.”There has been a strong uptake on our new Edinburgh service while London and the recently introduced flights for Dublin continue to perform well due to the extensive Finnair network of Asian departure points and the code share agreements in place with our oneworld partners for the Australian connections.”Mr Stone anticipated there would be considerable interest from Australians travelling to Europe and North America in the new Stopover Finland activities and tours from Visit Finland in cooperation with Primera Holidays. Passengers are now able to book a stopover for their connecting flight to or from Helsinki on the new website and can select experiences in and around Helsinki and take a short flight to Lapland, perhaps incorporating a visit to see Santa Claus.”We will continue to provide special Finnair flight and accommodation offers for Australians throughout the year,” Mr Stone said.”This is a long-standing and important market for Finnair.”Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

SP upgrades Cyprus to BB with stable outlook citing stalled reforms

first_imgStandard & Poor’s (S&P) said that it upgraded Cyprus’s sovereign rating to BB+ from BB which is still one notch below investment grade and placed it on stable outlook citing better than expected economic and fiscal performance.“The stable outlook balances our view of Cyprus’s fiscal and economic progress against unusually high levels of nonperforming loans in its financial sector, alongside risks of weaker reform delivery ahead of next year’s presidential elections,” the rating company said in a statement on its website on Friday adding that it affirmed the B short-term rating. “At an estimated 48 per cent as of end-November 2016, nonperforming loans are among the highest of all rated sovereigns. We believe that the banking sector is reducing asset quality concerns, although we still view financial stability as a main risk and consider the contingent liabilities from the financial sector as moderate”.“In our view, the deterioration in the banking sector’s asset quality reached an all-time low in early 2015,” it said.S&P added that it also expects the economy to expand this year 2.7 per cent before growth slows down to 2.5 per cent over 2018 to 2020 adding that it also expects public debt to drop to 90 per cent of economic output by the end of next year. “We think that the sovereign’s budgetary position will on average show a small surplus over 2018-2020, driving a discernible decline in government debt,” S&P said.“We expect labour demand to remain solid and project that the unemployment rate, 13.3 per cent at year-end 2016, will fall below 12 per cent by 2018,” S&P said. “We forecast investment activity to accelerate with foreign private-sector funding contributing to projects in the tourism and energy sectors, also reflecting funding from the European Union (EU), the European Investment Bank (EIB), and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Although domestic banks have increased lending activity and the real estate sector has stabilized, the protracted restructuring in the banking sector will constrain construction activity”.S&P added that it expects that the geopolitical situation in the wider region will allow tourism to continue adding to growth, even at a “lower pace” despite last year’s Brexit vote in the UK.“In the medium-to-long term, economic growth prospects may also flourish from the exploitation of natural gas fields,” it said. “An additional supportive factor to the country’s growth rate is in the possibility of currently negotiated reunification of the island, which would likely bolster investment activity and increase the economy’s growth potential, despite initial micro- and macroeconomic challenges, and the potentially substantial upfront cost of infrastructure investments in the north”.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
