___US and Mexico: More talks, no deal yet to avert tariffsWASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. and Mexican officials are labouring for a second day to avert import tariffs that President Donald Trump is threatening to impose as he tries to strong-arm Mexico into stemming the flow of Central American migrants across America’s southern border. Both sides are claiming headway, but Trump says a “lot of progress” must still be made to halt the 5% tax on all Mexican goods that he has threatened to impose Monday. The escalating tariff regime is opposed by many in his own Republican Party.___China says list of ‘unreliable’ foreign firms coming soonBEIJING (AP) — China’s Commerce Ministry says it will release a list of “unreliable” foreign companies in the near future. The Chinese commerce ministry spokesman did not give a date Thursday during a weekly briefing. But he said the process of drawing up the list was underway. China said it would issue a list of foreign companies and individuals that it deems unreliable after the U.S. blacklisted Chinese tech giant Huawei for alleged theft of intellectual property and evasion of Iran sanctions.___Fiat Chrysler-Renault deal collapsed over Nissan roleMILAN (AP) — Fiat Chrysler’s plan to merge with French carmaker Renault collapsed on fundamental differences over when Renault’s long-time alliance partner, Nissan, would be brought in. The merger plan had sought to create the world’s third-largest automaker. But it collapsed suddenly after the French government, Renault’s top shareholder, asked for more time to seek Nissan’s blessing.___Google’s challenge to game consoles to kick off in NovemberNEW YORK (AP) — Google will start its Stadia streaming game service in November — but initially only as part of a $130 bundle that includes hardware and a pass for a friend. Google won’t offer stand-alone subscriptions, for $10 a month, until next year. Stadia is Google’s attempt to make traditional video game consoles such as the Xbox and PlayStation obsolete.___Regulators give phone companies new tools to fight robocallsNEW YORK (AP) — Telecom regulators have voted to let phone companies block unwanted calls by default, which could be a powerful new tool against robocalls — if phone companies do it. They’re not required to. And they are also allowed to charge for it. There are other fronts in the war against robocalls, but even so, phone spam might not disappear. There are already concerns that scammers can outwit the latest moves in the arms race.___Huawei warns US would hurt itself by cutting off tech tiesST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — A senior executive for Chinese technology giant Huawei says he is hoping the company’s animosity with the United States will be resolved and warned that the U.S. would be shooting itself in the foot if it were to shun Chinese technology. Mika Lauhde, Huawei’s vice-president for cybersecurity and privacy, told The Associated Press Thursday that he hopes for a “positive resolution” of the ongoing standoff with the U.S.___After Fed, Europe also helps economy cope with trade warVILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — The European Central Bank has taken action to support the economy in the 19 countries that use the euro, responding to fears about global trade conflicts. The ECB said Thursday it would extend the earliest date for an interest rate increase from year-end to mid-2020. Benchmark rates are currently at record lows.___Google to acquire data firm Looker for $2.6 billionNEW YORK (AP) — Google is acquiring data analytics firm Looker for $2.6 billion in an effort to expand its Google Cloud business. The company says Looker will give its cloud-computing customers more ways to use their data. The companies were already working together and share about 350 customers including Buzzfeed, Hearst and Yahoo! The deal is expected to be completed later this year.___Plant-based burger maker Beyond Meat beats forecasts in 1QEL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Beyond Meat’s shares soared after the plant-based meat company beat Wall Street’s expectations in its first earnings report since its IPO in May. The El Segundo, California-based company lost $6.6 million, or 95 cents per share, in the first quarter, up slightly from a 98-cent loss in the same period a year ago.___Boom in electric scooters leads to more injuries, fatalitiesAs electric scooters have rolled into more than 100 cities worldwide, many of the people riding them have ended up in the emergency room with serious injuries. Others have been killed. With summer fast approaching, the numbers will undoubtedly grow as cities continue to grapple with how to manage the two-wheeled vehicles that riders adore but motorists and pedestrians scorn.___US stocks climb on hope of US-Mexico trade dealNEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks finished higher Friday as optimism that the U.S. and Mexico can work out a deal before costly tariffs kick in next week helped power the market to its third straight gain. A modest rally gained strength in the final hour of trading after Bloomberg reported that the U.S. was considering delaying a 5% tariff on Mexican goods that is set to go into effect on Monday. The report came as the two countries held a second day of trade talks.___The S&P 500 index gained 17.34 points, or 0.6%, to 2,843.49. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 181.09 points, or 0.7%, to 25,720.66. The Nasdaq composite added 40.08 points, or 0.5%, to 7,615.55. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies dropped 3.25 points, or 0.2%, to 1,503.54.The Associated Press read more

White House yanks drug rebate plan to ease costs for some

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is withdrawing a plan to ease the financial bite of costly medications for people on Medicare by letting them receive rebates that drugmakers now pay to insurers and middlemen, the White House said Thursday.The once-highly promoted plan from Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar ran into opposition within the White House. The pushback grew after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated the plan would have little impact on manufacturer prices and cost Medicare $177 billion over 10 years by leading to higher premiums subsidized by taxpayers.White House spokesman Judd Deere said the proposal to create the rebate program was withdrawn “based on careful analysis and thorough consideration.” It was not immediately clear whether that meant the end of the debate on rebates because other proposals on the same issue could surface on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers are working with the administration on drug cost legislation.Deere said Trump is not backing away from his promise to lower drug prices, and the administration is setting its sights on bipartisan legislation in Congress . Various bills would cap drug copays for people with Medicare. Patients taking very expensive medications for cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions can now face copays that rival a mortgage payment.“The Trump administration is encouraged by continuing bipartisan conversations about legislation to reduce outrageous drug costs imposed on the American people, and President Trump will consider using any and all tools to ensure that prescription drug costs will continue to decline,” Deere said in a statement.The administration’s about-face was the second setback in a week for the president’s drive to lower drug prices.A federal judge in Washington, D.C., ruled on Monday that the administration did not have legal authority to require drugmakers to disclose list prices in their TV ads that were supposed to have started this week. But GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the chamber’s second-ranking Democrat, are pushing legislation that would grant the government such powers.Thursday’s reversal on rebates appeared to be a win for insurers, employers, and middlemen called “pharmacy benefit managers” who administer prescription drug plans for large blocks of insured patients.Shares of several big companies that manage prescription benefits started climbing early in the day. CVS Health Corp. and Cigna Corp. both jumped more than 7 per cent, and UnitedHealth Group Inc. rose 4 per cent while broader markets advanced slightly at the start of trading.For the pharmaceutical industry, it looked like a defeat. Drugmakers preferred the consumer rebate approach to other ideas that lawmakers are considering. Those include “inflation rebates” that drugmakers would be pay directly to Medicare if they raise prices beyond a yet-to-be-determined measure.“The administration has abandoned one of the only policy solutions that would have truly lowered what patients are forced to pay out of pocket for the medicines they need,” Jim Greenwood, head of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, said in a statement.Labour Department data indicate that something different may be happening to drug prices.Overall prescription drug inflation seems to have stabilized, with more monthly declines than increases recently. The White House credits Trump for that change, but independent experts say the trend isn’t totally clear yet. The government’s inflation index for medications also includes prices for lower-cost generics, and most consumers are worried about high-priced brand drugs.Rebates are a largely unseen part of the complex world of drug pricing.Under the administration’s plan, drugmaker rebates now paid to insurance companies and their middlemen would have gone directly to seniors in Medicare’s Part D program when they filled their prescriptions.But congressional analysts concluded that drug companies were unlikely to lower list prices across the board in response to the plan. Instead, they would reimburse pharmacies for discounts provided to individuals as they fill their prescriptions. Analysts also questioned how quickly and smoothly the program could have been rolled out.Budget hawks within the administration saw their hand strengthened by the report.The analysts did say that seniors who cannot afford their copays now would be clear winners. They would be better able to stay on their medications, and that could reduce Medicare hospital and outpatient spending by about $20 billion over 10 years.But without insurers getting the rebates, the bottom line would have been an increase in premiums. Because the government subsidizes about 75% of the premium, that would add $170 billion to program spending from 2020-2029. Medicaid spending would also increase by $7 billion.The administration’s reversal was first reported by Axios.Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, The Associated Press read more

Dramatic Arts grads in Toronto Fringe Festival spotlight

Two plays featuring Brock Dramatic Arts graduates will be playing this week in Toronto as part of the Best of Fringe.First Dates, a play about love, loss and people aching to connect, is written and directed by Niagara Falls native Wes Berger and features music by his brother, musician and Brock alumnus Aaron Berger (BA ’17).Also featured during the Best of Fringe event is Anywhere, the newest work by award-winning playwright Michael Ross Albert starring Brock alumna Cass Van Wyck (BA ’13). The thriller, set in an Airbnb, follows a cordial relationship between strangers that escalates into a tense battle for control.Anywhere and First Dates were both selected as 2018 Patron’s Picks at the Toronto Fringe Festival.“On behalf of the department, we want to congratulate Wes, Cass and Aaron,” says Professor Joe Norris, Chair of the Department of Dramatic Arts. “As always, we celebrate our students’ successes and are pleased their hard and talented work is recognized in the Ontario theatre community.”The Toronto Fringe Theatre Festival provides opportunities for emerging and established artists to share their productions with the community in an affordable and accessible way. The Best of Fringe remounts selected productions at the Studio Theatre, Toronto Centre for the Arts to give patrons a second chance to see the shows.Also in July was the Hamilton Fringe Festival, which showcased another production filled with Brock talent. September Songs was directed by Colin Bruce Anthes (BA ’14) and featured five Brock grads. The show will be coming to the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre Nov. 1 to 3. read more

Stats Cant Tell Us Whether Mike Trout Or Josh Donaldson Should Be

In 53.5 percent of the fictional seasons, Donaldson exceeds Trout. But in the other 46.5 percent, Trout betters Donaldson. With such an even split, it’s difficult to say for sure whether Trout or Donaldson has contributed more to his team’s success. If we use WAR as our guide, we have little basis to determine which player deserves the MVP more. The confidence interval on Donaldson’s WAR is simply too large to be sure that he’s the more valuable of the two. That’s not to say that Donaldson isn’t our best guess, only that we are not confident in that guess; Trout is a perfectly defensible choice as well.In the NL, the gap is more pronounced between the WAR leader and the runner-up. Harper’s sublime offensive season has earned him the most WAR (8.0) in all of baseball. Meanwhile, the Mets’ Yoenis Cespedes comes in second, with a relatively paltry total of 7.1 WAR. Yet, despite the larger gap between Cespedes and Harper than between Trout and Donaldson, in 33.6 percent of the simulated seasons, Cespedes’s estimated WAR exceeds Harper’s.Much of the uncertainty in WAR comes from our imperfect measurements of defense. Because the vast majority of defensive plays are routine, a player’s true defensive skill can be seen only on the few plays that are between the impossible and the everyday. A given player might see only about 100 such plays per season. Even in that subset of plays, the difference between a Web Gem and a hit can be as little as a couple of feet, the result of a lucky step or the wind changing at the right moment.Even if we had much more data on defense than we do, our best tools for measuring it are falling behind front-office strategy. We watch baseball in the age of the defensive shift; teams are becoming more and more savvy about positioning both their infield and outfield to maximize the chance of getting outs. Without detailed data on how defenders are positioned before the play starts, most of our metrics are confounded by the front office’s ability to instruct its players on where to stand.WAR itself is not complete. Although all versions of WAR available today cover the basics of player value (hitting, fielding, baserunning and pitching),4It is also worth considering that the different versions of WAR differ slightly in terms of how they measure and value these skills. For example, openWAR rewards contextual performance more than other versions of WAR, which arguably makes it more suitable for judging the MVP race. Although all versions agree in broad strokes and tend to give rise to similar leaderboards, differences between models can generate significant gaps between players (up to 2 to 3 WAR). no current version picks up on some of the more esoteric skills in baseball, such as a catcher’s pitch framing. Framing can contribute up to 3 wins to good catchers, so any MVP debate guided by WAR will underrate players like Buster Posey who contribute substantially in that arena.Despite all of its flaws, WAR is still the best available tool for judging value, and certainly exceeds the older alternatives, such as RBIs and pitcher wins. At a minimum, WAR can tell us who the MVP isn’t. For example, we know Matt Kemp’s 2.0 WAR isn’t likely to best Harper’s even with all the uncertainty baked into WAR.5Such a scenario unfolds only three times in 1,000 seasons. But by old-school metrics, Kemp’s 94 RBIs as of Sept. 13 exceeded Harper’s 85. Because of sabermetrics, we know that has more to do with luck and context than value.But like any tool, WAR has limitations. After a full season of baseball, our best measurement can’t tell us who the single most valuable player in the league is with any substantial degree of confidence. It could be Harper, or Cespedes, or potentially even Joey Votto. In the absence of definitive evidence, let the debate continue. As MLB award season arrives, no prize looms larger than Most Valuable Player. From a statistical perspective, the best guide to the MVP award is undoubtedly wins above replacement, and some voters develop their MVP ballots at least in part based on WAR. If you were going just by WAR, the American League MVP should go to the Blue Jays’ Josh Donaldson (7.1 WAR) over the Angels’ Mike Trout (6.8 WAR); while in the National League, Bryce Harper (8.0 WAR) of the Nationals looks like an obvious choice (all stats are current through Sept. 13).The problem is that we don’t know who truly has the most WAR in each league.WAR looks like a single easy-to-understand stat, but it’s the product of a complex model. That model integrates information on all the ways a player provides value: his hitting, fielding, baserunning and (for pitchers) pitching. The WAR you find at, say, FanGraphs or Baseball-Reference.com is an estimate of all those categories combined.However, like all statistical estimates, WAR calculations come with uncertainty. Here’s where things get pretty statsy, so bear with me: You’re about to get a crash course in confidence intervals. The true value of a player varies from what you find on the leaderboard — but we’re not sure by how much. That’s because of sample size. Although a whole season of baseball seems like a lot, it still doesn’t provide enough data to allow us to be completely sure of each player’s value. So Harper’s 8 WAR could be 6 or it could be 10, but the number on the leaderboard represents our best guess.When the uncertainty about a player is small, we can be more sure that the player who looks like the best really is the best. If the uncertainty increases, though, we become less able to distinguish his performance from those of his competitors. Trying to determine the magnitude of this uncertainty is tricky, but it’s an important part of good statistical practice.Confidence intervals help us establish how uncertain we are about our measurement. A confidence interval is a range that, based on statistical analysis, is thought to contain the true value of a player a certain percentage of the time.1For example, a 95 percent confidence interval is thought to include the true value 95 percent of the time. But the creators of only one model have made their full methodology public, allowing us to create confidence intervals. Their model is, appropriately, called openWAR. I used openWAR to generate 1,000 fictional seasons that resemble the current year2They are sampled from the current year, with replacement. but randomize the events in it.Imagine that a player’s season (hitting, fielding and baserunning) is made up of just four plays, which we number 1 through 4. When we run the simulations, all of a player’s plays are randomized, so sometimes a season consists of plays 1 (a line drive the player hits for a single), 2 (a ball he commits an error on in the field), 3 (a stolen base) and 1 again; sometimes 1, 2, 3 and 3, etc. Each fictional season arises by picking at random from the plays that have happened, allowing the same play to be picked twice or more. From that, we can ask how often, in these imaginary seasons, a given player produced more or less WAR than it appears he did in the season we’ve just lived through in real life.3Again, all numbers are current through Sept. 13.Here’s what those simulations produced: read more

Pilots accused of being over legal alcohol limit cleared after prison staff

“We will be meeting with them in the next few days to plan their reinstatement since there is no charge against them and we have no evidence that they have broken any law nor our internal rules.”They will need to undergo retraining and requalification as per applicable legislation, and we will put in place measures to ensure that their behaviour is exemplary.” Imran Zafar Syed at Paisley Sheriff Court The pair were arrested just before they were due to take off on the Air Transat flight from Glasgow Credit:David Cheskin /PA  Glasgow airport Canadian pilot Jean-Francois PerreaultCredit:Andrew Milligan /PA Mr Perreault, 41, and Mr Syed, 39, were arrested on July 18 2016 before they were due to take off on the Air Transat flight from Glasgow to Toronto.Mr Syed, from Toronto, was accused of performing “an activity ancillary to an aviation function” when he allegedly had 49 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, more than double the legal limit of 20.Mr Perreault, from the province of Ontario, faced the same charge with an alleged 32 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. They had both denied the charge. Imran Syed at Paisley Sheriff CourtCredit:Andrew Milligan /PA I wanted to have my blood sample analysedJean-Francois Perreault Canadian pilot Jean-Francois Perreault Two pilots accused of preparing to fly a plane while under the influence of alcohol have been cleared after blood samples were destroyed by prison staff.The prosecution against Jean-Francois Perreault and Imran Syed, who were arrested minutes before a flight from Scotland to Canada was due to take off, collapsed when it emerged the key evidence had been destroyed.Blood tests were said to have found the Canadian pilots above the legal alcohol limit. The case was due before Paisley Sheriff Court on Thursday, but prosecutors offered no evidence against the men and the hearing was cancelled.Prosecutors said that after “full and careful consideration” of the facts and circumstances there would be no further proceedings in the case. The delayed Airbus flight eventually set off with a different crew the next morning, with about 250 passengers having spent the night at hotels close to Glasgow Airport.At a previous hearing, which could not be reported until now, Paisley Sheriff Court heard that both men requested part of their blood samples when they were taken in July 2016 so that they could have them independently analysed. But the defence appealed against his decision, arguing that the blood samples should be inadmissible as evidence.In February, the Sheriff rejected the appeal, however the case then went to the Court of Appeal in Edinburgh where the defence won their appeal, with judges saying the Sheriff ought to have ruled that sample B was not admissible.On Thursday it was confirmed that the case has fallen.A Crown Office spokesman said: “It is the duty of the Crown to keep cases under review. After full and careful consideration of the facts and circumstances, including the recent decision of the Court of Appeal, Crown Counsel instructed there should be no further proceedings at this time.”We are working with Police Scotland to ensure there are proper processes and guidance in place covering the retention and storage of samples when an accused person is remanded in custody.” Both men were suspended by Air Transat after their arrests.A spokesman for the airline said: “We note that all charges against our pilots have been dropped. The pilots were indeed suspended pending the outcome of the court proceedings. They have now been declared innocent.”The safety of our passengers and flight crews is our number one priority. We have always taken, and will continue to take, all necessary measures to ensure that applicable regulations, as well as our internal rules are followed to the letter. We can count on the unfailing co-operation of our personnel in that respect. Following a hearing at Paisley Sheriff Court in September, Sheriff James Spy ruled that the samples were available for independent analysis at the time and that police and the Crown were not responsible for what happened to them later, and that the case could proceed. The samples were among their belongings when they arrived at HMP Low Moss on July 19 2016, but prison staff did not know what to do with them.Paul Scoular, security manager at the prison, working for the Scottish Prison Service, said he was concerned the blood samples might no longer be of any worth because they had not been in cold storage.He discussed his concerns with the pilots and said both men gave him their consent for the samples, known as B, to be destroyed.Mr Scoular passed the samples to the prison nurse who put them in a locked drawer and later destroyed them when she heard the two pilots had been released from the prison.Giving evidence himself, Mr Perreault said he did not give permission for his blood sample to be destroyed. He told the court: “I wanted to have my blood sample analysed.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Inco and Falconbridge demonstrate synergy values

first_imgInco and Falconbridge Limited provided members of the investment community with a first-hand look at how they plan to generate approximately $550 million in average annual pre-tax value by applying a ‘one mine’ approach to their combined Canadian operations if and when Inco’s friendly acquisition of Falconbridge is completed. They conducted a two-day Synergy Summit on Monday and Tuesday this week for about 60 investors and analysts, including an extensive tour of Inco and Falconbridge facilities in the Sudbury Basin.“We wanted investors to see, hear and feel for themselves the outstanding and unique opportunities we have to create value at an operational level by combining our two companies,” said Inco Chairman and CEO Scott Hand. “This tour provided a great deal of tangible evidence showing why the New Inco is the most logical transaction on the table and possibly the best combination of any two companies in the mining industry today.”To date, Inco and Falconbridge have identified the potential to realize, within 24 months following the completion of their transaction, some $550 million in average annual pre-tax run-rate operating and corporate synergies.  Using a 7% discount rate, these synergies would have an estimated net present value of some $3.5 billion after tax, representing about $9.20 per share of the combined company. “I think we demonstrated conclusively that our current estimate of $550 million in annual benefits is real and achievable,” said Derek Pannell, CEO of Falconbridge. “We also showed that there is a great deal of upside potential.” Of the estimated $550 million in synergy value that has been identified so far, about $205 million is expected to come from optimizing material feeds and processing facilities, $135 million from maximizing production by accelerating mine development, $100 million from cost and other improvements, and $110 million from savings in general and administrative costs (SG&A). The two-day tour included Inco’s Coleman/McCreedy mining complex and Falconbridge’s Strathcona mill, Inco’s Copper Cliff smelter and Copper Cliff nickel refinery, and the Falconbridge Nickel Rim South development project, which is adjacent to Inco’s Victor property. At each, investors were shown in detail specific projects with the potential to generate value for the ‘New Inco’. For example, integrating Inco’s Coleman/McCreedy mine complex with Falconbridge’s Fraser Strathcona mill complex will increase production rates and lower operating and capital costs. Investors also learned about the considerable potential to create even greater value once the two companies come together by looking beyond the Sudbury operations and considering the entire complex of combined operations in Canada as ‘one mine’.“The ‘one mine’ approach is based on looking at all the Inco and Falconbridge Canadian assets as an integrated complex to fully utilise our combined mining and processing capabilities,” said Mark Cutifani, President of Inco’s North America/Europe Operations. “We have well-developed plans that back our synergies target and we can see some other very exciting possibilities.”Current improvements planned at Inco’s Clarabelle Mill to separate 30% of the copper in bulk nickel-copper feed allows for production increases of 15% and the processing of more nickel through the smelter. Future possibilities include increasing copper separation to 70%, effectively providing additional nickel smelting capacity.This added capacity would open the door to redirecting more Voisey’s Bay concentrate to Sudbury from Thompson – creating additional mining opportunities in Thompson. Improving overall smelter throughput would also provide the opportunity to expand production at Inco’s Copper Cliff nickel refinery and Clydach nickel refinery by some 10% and 15%, respectively.  Cutifani said that, along with increased production, these changes would mean improved productivity and lower costs across the operations. “We believe these initiatives along with our strategies to utilize our people most effectively have the potential to help reduce our costs beyond what we’ve already accounted for in the synergies identified to date.” Based on current growth projects and expansion plans, and as a result of the synergies accounted for to date, Inco and Falconbridge expect by 2009 to increase both nickel and copper production by approximately 100 Mlb, and production of platinum group metals by approximately 111,000 oz in their combined Canadian operations. The increase in nickel production expected as a result of future plans to improve nickel-copper separation to 70%, described above, would add incremental production to this. “The increases planned for the Canadian operations will be the most efficient and low-cost production increases in the nickel industry,” Hand said. He added that the world will need this additional nickel as the market is very tight and is expected to remain so, as China continues to build new stainless steel capacity and demand for nickel increases. “Given China’s tremendous industrial growth, we believe that a global nickel demand growth rate of 6% per year is a conservative estimate going forward, considering that Japan’s industrial expansion led to 14 straight years of 7% compound annual nickel demand growth from 1960 to 1974,” he said.Hand said that one clear lesson from the tour was that the scale of synergies available from a “one mine” concept could only happen by combining the assets of both companies under common ownership. “Others may speculate about joint ventures, but frankly you could never achieve process changes and improvements on the scale we are talking about without major commitment and investment, and that is what we are proposing,” he said.He added that the combined teams at Inco and Falconbridge showed over the two days that they have a clear plan to achieve the synergies that have been estimated to date, and more. “There is a deep understanding by the people in these operations as to how we will implement these plans, and a tremendous amount of expertise available from people who have done this before,” said Hand. “Our people are excited about making it happen and they are ready to succeed.”last_img read more

Image: Pablo Martinez Monsivais/PA Images 11,639 Views Share103 Tweet Email US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump has said he’s willing to testify under oath about the nature of his meeting with the then-director of the FBI James Comey.There was “no collusion, no obstruction,” Trump told a White House press conference today, as he branded James Comey a “leaker” for indirectly providing to reporters the contents of memos he wrote after private meetings and conversations with the president.“Some of the things that he said just weren’t true,” Trump added.Yesterday, Comey was questioned by Senators under oath about whether Trump asked him to drop an investigation into Russian interference in the US election and former national security advisor Michael Flynn.During his testimony, Comey said that he made sure to take notes of the meeting because he “was honestly concerned that [Trump] might lie about the nature of our meeting.”He added that he didn’t receive explicit orders to stop his investigation, but said that it was implied.Trump has repeatedly rejected Comey’s charge that he urged him to end the probe into Flynn during that one-to-one meeting.Earlier today, Trump tweeted that he had been completely vindicated by Comey’s testimony.With reporting from AFPRead: James Comey on Trump: ‘I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting’Read: Donald Trump claims he has been ‘totally vindicated’ by James Comey’s testimony 113 Comments By Gráinne Ní Aodha Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Jun 9th 2017, 8:38 PM Image: Pablo Martinez Monsivais/PA Images Short URL http://jrnl.ie/3436489 Friday 9 Jun 2017, 8:38 PMlast_img read more

Reading Cooperative Bank Raises Employee Starting Wage To 15

first_img(NOTE: Reading Cooperative Bank has two locations in Wilmington — 230 Lowell Street and 352 Middlesex Avenue.)READING, MA — Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB) recently announced that it would be increasing the minimum wage for all Bank employees to $15 per hour. The decision was announced at RCB’s year-end employee meeting, where President & CEO Julie Thurlow spoke to the company about the Board of Directors’ plan to help full-and-part-time employees struggling with the rising cost of living in Massachusetts.“We just felt like it was the right thing to do,” Thurlow responded when asked about the move. “We understand that one size does not fit all, and we would never presume that every company can afford to take such measures. The Bank still strongly believes that matters such as this should remain in the hands of individuals, not government.”Thurlow went on to elaborate about the plight of small businesses in the area: “As much as we strive to support workers who just want to make a living wage, we are certainly cognizant of the limitations that our local small business owners face daily and respect the decisions they have to make.”(NOTE: The above press release is from Reading Cooperative Bank.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Five arrested in detention of 27 Cancun call center workers

first_imgThe incident occurred during the nighttime hours of Tuesday at a makeshift call center office in SM 524 used to sell vacation packages. Police say that a group of armed men stormed the office and forcefully removed those inside. They were moved outside the building into two waiting vans. Reports to police by neighbors in SM 325 alerted authorities to the presence of the group. According to the Attorney General’s Office, police acted on the tip and located a home where inside, they found the 27 call center workers and five heavily armed men. Cancún, Q.R. — A total of 27 people who were removed from their workplace against their will in Cancun, have been safely found and reunited with their families. The 27 call center workers were rescued unharmed and reunited with their families. Prosecutor Óscar Montes de Oca Rosales explained that police arrested the five men and seized the two vehicles used to transport the victims to the area of Santa Fe in Cancun. Of those arrested, four are of Mexican nationality and one, a non-Mexican. It is believed a business dispute between patners of the call center resulted in the failed kidnapping of the 27 call center workers. Arrested are Víctor “N”, Álvaro “N”, Gustavo “N”, Jan “N” and Jorge “N”. They are believed to be the five responsible for the Tuesday night kidnapping in Region 524 in Cancun. Police say their investigation continues.

Battle of Imphal WWII Tours expands into Myanmar

first_imgThe Burma Campaign revisited: Battle of Imphal Tours guide for Myanmar, Mr Yaiphaba Kangjam (‘Yai’); the remains of the bridge at Sittang (Sittaung); the Japanese memorial outside Mandalay, and the Taukkyan War CemeteryBattle of Imphal WWII Tours expands into MyanmarSpecialist WWII battlefield tour operator in Imphal, North East India, now offers tours into Myanmar to give tourists a fuller picture of the decisive Burma Campaign which started the downfall of Japanese imperial ambitions in AsiaBattle of Imphal Tours has expanded its tour options beyond Imphal and Kohima in North East India into Myanmar (Burma). The specialist battlefield tour company, founded in 2012 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the bloody 1944 Battle of Imphal in Manipur India, now offers four itineraries in neighbouring Myanmar.The Essential Burma WWII Tour lasts seven days, the Chindits Tour eight days, the Leisurely Burma WWII Tour 17 days, and the Full Burma Campaign Tour 14 days. The latter trip has the option of three extra days in which visitors can cross from Manipur in North East India to Myanmar at the Moreh-Tamu crossing, a route rich in strategic significance during the Burma Campaign.Battle of Imphal Tours was founded by Hemant Singh Katoch who has published two books on Imphal: The Battlefields of Imphal: The Second World War and North East India, and Imphal 1944: The Japanese Invasion of India.“Myanmar and North East India are bound together by their shared experience of the Second World War,” said Hemant. “That’s why we now link the battlefield sites of Imphal and Kohima with those across Myanmar, which has dozens of historically significant locations. Only by covering both sides of the India-Myanmar frontier do you get a proper feel for the full drama and terrain of the Burma Campaign,” he said.Imphal-based Yaiphaba Kangjam (‘Yai’), the company’s principal battlefield guide, will lead all tours in Myanmar.Battle of Imphal Tours have linked up with Khiri Travel Myanmar, which will handle the logistics, transport and hotels often in remote areas of the country. Khiri has also built a strong reputation as a film fixer for British TV productions in Myanmar such as Burma, My Father and the Forgotten Army, with Griff Rhys Jones, and Top Gear.“Many people in the UK and beyond have family history with Burma,” said Edwin Briels, managing director of Khiri Travel Myanmar. “We work closely with local people and institutions to help reconnect visitors with places that have emotional and historical significance for them. We also welcome anyone interested in a fuller understanding of World War II.”People and travel agents interested in visiting the WWII battlefields, museums, war graves and commemorative sites of India and Burma should visit battleofimphal.com which has specific itinerary information, photographs and testimonials.SidebarIn October 2015, the Burma Star Association awarded a Certificate of Merit and Friendship Badge to Hemant Singh Katoch, founder of the Battle of Imphal Tours, for pioneering battlefield tours around Imphal and Kohima. The letter of commendation was from Colonel Viscount Slim, President of the Burma Star Association and son of the late-Field Marshal William J. Slim, who had commanded the British Fourteenth Army to victory at Imphal and Kohima in 1944. The letter can be inspected here.Pull quotes“Imphal was one of the greatest Allied victories of the war, a turning point as significant in Asia as EI Alamein and Stalingrad had been in Africa and Europe” – Peter Heehs, History Today“The war in Burma was a combination of jungle war, mountain war, desert war, and naval war” – Col.
