Cisco’s stock fell $1.97 or 10.49 per cent to US$16.81. The S&P 500 index was ahead 3.41 points at 1,357.99.Positive jobs data helped support stocks Thursday. Weekly jobless claims in the U.S. edged downward last week, suggesting that employers may accelerate hiring this month. Applications dropped by 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 367,000 in the week ended May 5, the U.S. Labour Department said Thursday.The recent selloff on the TSX left the market about two per cent lower than where it started the year.Besides the latest round of uncertainty in Europe, stocks and commodities have also been pressured by signs of slowing economies in China and the United States.“It’s really based on commodities and demand from the emerging markets,” said Kevin Headland, director of the portfolio advisory group at Manulife Asset Management.“They are growing but at a slower pace and I think the consensus was an expectation of continued strong markets and I think maybe that was a bit of a pipe dream.”Meanwhile, analysts expect talks to form a Greek government will go nowhere and that Greeks will go back to the polls in June.There are some hopes in the markets that in new elections Greeks who want the country to remain in the euro currency bloc will support the main pro-euro parties, facilitating the creation of a moderate coalition government.“There is talk maybe the Greeks will have realized OK, this was my vote against austerity, now we’re going to look at one of the other parties,” Headland said.“But again, how much does Greece matter? It’s more about what is going to happen with Spain and is there going to be some kind of knock on effect on their debt and perhaps Italy’s and that’s a bigger issue going forward.”In the meantime, Greece is being held together by an international bailout. And analysts warn that Greece could run out of money as soon as next month without a government to negotiate the next level of its bailout.On Thursday, China’s weak import growth data raised fears the world’s second-biggest economy wasn’t doing enough to stimulate domestic demand amid an economic slowdown.Imports edged up 0.3 per cent to US$144.8 billion in April while exports rose 4.9 per cent to $163.3 billion, leaving a surplus of $18.4 billion, according to customs data released Thursday.That compared with a surplus of $5.35 billion in March and a deficit of $31.5 billion in February.China has been an important prop for a global economy still in the midst of a fragile recovery from the 2008 financial collapse and subsequent recession. Its huge appetite for energy and metals has boosted commodity prices and oil and mining stocks on the TSX.But resource stocks and commodity prices have been hit particularly hard recently. The June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange climbed 27 cents to US$97.08 a barrel, down sharply from US$106 at the beginning of this month. The energy sector improved by 0.75 per cent as Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) advanced 23 cents to C$29.30.The base metals sector gained 0.32 per cent with copper prices up three cents at US$3.69. Demand concerns had pushed the metal down almost five per cent from May 1. HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) climbed 18 cents to C$9.45.Bullion prices added $1.30 to US$1,595.50 an ounce, taking the gold sector up 0.55 per cent and Iamgold (TSX:IMG) gained 17 cents to C$10.97.Financials were also positive as Sun Life Financial (TSX:SLF) shares gained 42 cents to $22.55 as it reported that an improvement in capital markets led to quarterly net income of $686 million or $1.15 per share compared with $438 million or 73 cents in the same period last year.Stocks also benefited from news that Spain would take over Bankia SA, the country’s fourth-largest bank, which has high exposure to bad property loans. The government is hoping to convince investors that Spain won’t need a bailout.Elsewhere in the sector, Royal Bank (TSX:RY) rose 58 cents to $53.95.In other earnings news, Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) was up 27 cents at $3.96 as it reported net income of $190 million in the first quarter, or 10 cents a share. That is down sharply from $220 million, or 12 cents a share a year ago. Revenue was $3.5 billion, compared with $4.7 billion last year.Magna International Inc. (TSX:MG) posted first-quarter sales of $7.7 billion, up seven per cent from the first quarter of 2011. Canada’s largest auto parts maker handed in net income of $343 million. Magna shares gained 96 cents to $43.64.Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.A) posted $2.4 billion in revenue for the quarter ended March 31, up 23 per cent from the same period last year and a profit of $71 million, or 87 cents a share, up 21.5 per cent from the same period in 2011. Its shares gained $2.81 to $70.23. read more

PhobosGrunt launching today in a bid to collect Mars moondust

first_imgRussia is hoping to launch its Phobos-Grunt spacecraft today in a bid to collect Moondust from the surface of Mars‘ larger moon named Phobos.The mission is Russia’s first trip to Mars since the failed Mars 96 mission 15 years ago, which had a second fourth-stage burn failure and re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere. Russia is hoping for a successful outcome this time, but so are China and the Planetary Society who are piggybacking Phobos-Grunt with their own equipment and experiments.For China, Phobos-Grunt is the means of transport for its Yinghuo-1 satellite destined to orbit Mars for at least 2 years. Once there, it will feedback information on the upper atmosphere of the planet and the space environment around it.The Planetary Society will have a canister placed on board Phobos-Grunt called Phobos LIFE. Inside the canister will live millions of organisms consisting of bacteria, eukaryota, and archaea. The idea of the LIFE project is to see if the organisms, and therefore life, can survive extended periods in space, and if so, proving that life could be transported inside meteoroids.If Phobos-Grunt is successful, it will return to Earth in 3 years having launched the Chinese satellite and bringing back moondust and the well-traveled selection of organisms. In so doing it should expand our knowledge of both the planet and space travel considerably.The only issues that could stop the launch happening today are a problem with one of the launch systems or spacecraft itself, or adverse weather conditions. Whatever happens, there’s sure to be a few nervous people involved in the project remembering what happened to Mars 96. We hope everything goes to plan and we get to learn a lot more about Mars from both the satellite and the moondust when it arrives in 2014.More at Scientific American and RussianSpaceWeblast_img read more

Senate report on Benghazi puts blame on agencies not White House

first_imgWASHINGTON — The FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies — but not the White House — made major changes in talking points that led to the Obama administration’s confusing explanations of the attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, a Senate report concluded Monday.The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee report said the White House was only responsible for a minor change. Some Republicans had questioned whether the presidential staff rewrote the talking points for political reasons.The committee, headed by independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, also said the director of national intelligence has been stonewalling the panel in holding back a promised timeline of the talking point changes.U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11 attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said she used the talking points to say in television interviews on Sept. 16 that it may have been a protest that got out of hand.Rice’s incorrect explanation may have cost her a chance to be nominated as the next secretary of state, as Senate Republicans publicly said they would not vote to confirm her. President Barack Obama instead nominated Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who is expected to win easy confirmation.last_img read more

Biden Praises Anacostia Project

first_imgD.C. Water general manager George Hawkins,Vice President Biden and Clean Water Director Carlton Ray discuss the importance of maintaining roads, bridges, ports and other infrastructure Jan. 16.Vice President Joe Biden and other Obama cabinet officials recently joined D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on a visit to an infrastructure project being built by the city’s water and sewer authority. The Southeast Washington project promises to improve the lives of residents for decades.Vice President Biden, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, and Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.-D) joinedthe mayor on Jan. 16 for a tour of D.C. Water’s Anacostia River Tunnel project located near RFK Stadium on the western banks of the Anacostia River. The Obama administration has made re-building the nation’s infrastructure a priority in the waning years of its tenure, and Biden said that the river tunnel is a model project.“We are working to make the environment better,” Biden said to a small gathering of city officials and employees of D.C. Water. “Storm water runs into sewers that go into toilets and rivers and pollutes the water. It costs so much money to fix the problem and in some areas of the country the systems are archaic because they were built in the 1800s and out of wood.”The Anacostia River Tunnel project is a part of D.C. Water’s $2.6 billion Clean Rivers Project that should stem the sewer overflows in the District with a goal of improved water quality. D.C. Water’s plan to significantly reduce sewage to the river is to build massive underground tunnels that will store the sewage and runoff during intense rainstorms and then convey the flow to the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant for processing.The Anacostia River has repeatedly been cited by the EPA and environmental organizations as one of the nation’s most polluted waterways.  Sewage from industries and farms in neighboring Maryland and an antiquated water treatment infrastructure are some of the reasons for the pollution.D.C. Water has received $210.8 million in federal funding for the project and local ratepayers will pay for the remainder of project cost. Recently, D.C. Water became the first water/wastewater utility in the country to issue century bonds, financial instruments that will mature in 100 years to match the life expectancy of the tunnels and to spread the cost of the project out for generations.The project is expected to produce nearly 2,500 employment opportunities. Biden said that keeping and recruiting new businesses as well as increasing employment prospects are a byproduct of funding projects like the tunnels.“If the United States is going to continue to lead the world, we have to have the most modern infrastructure in the world,” the vice president said. “Building the infrastructure attracts businesses and workers to communities.”Biden said Bowser should be credited for her work as a council member in setting up the public-private nature of the project’s funding. “Issuing the new type of [century] bond is not privatization but collaboration,” he said. “This type of project should be the standard for generations. Here in the United States, three percent of infrastructure projects are the result of public-private partnerships but in Great Britain, 30 percent of its projects are of that type.”District officials attending the event included City Administrator Rashad Gray, Department of the Environment Acting Director Tommy Wells, and D.C. Water Chief Executive and General Manager George Hawkins. D.C. Council members Charles Allen (D-Ward 6) and Yvette Alexander (D-Ward 7) were present also.Bowser said that the project should be supported on Capitol Hill without the partisan bickering.“We look to Congress to make it easier for this new venture to be successful and create conditions that allow us to work with regional partners and neighboring states to rebuild other infrastructure projects like our roads and mass transit system,” the mayor said. “Congress has a responsibility to help move us forward.”Biden noted that it will take $3.6 trillion to modernize the nation’s infrastructure and that he wants to see the Anacostia project “replicated throughout the nation.”“America has always built, built, built,” he said. “Let’s get to work and rebuild America.”last_img read more

Snapchats Parent Company Plans to Invest 15 Million in Media Startups

first_img 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Earlier this week, the parent company of Snapchat announced a new accelerator program, Yellow, dedicated to companies focused on creative “mobile storytelling,” further blurring the lines between social networks and media companies. (Facebook consistently insists it’s not one.)Snap will kick off its inaugural Yellow program this September, through which it will invest $150,000 in each of a maximum of 10 media startups in exchange for an unspecified amount of equity.Related: What Tech Companies Such as Snapchat and Their Users Should Remember When Updates Cause Outcry“They’ll receive the tools needed to grow a business from the ground up, including funding, mentorship, introductions to industry veterans and creative office space,” the Yellow website reads, “as well as the opportunity for distribution on Snapchat.” Snapchat’s Discover section already features content from a range of media partners.That mentorship will come directly from Snap’s executive team, including co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel. Spiegel will help to select participants, as well as advise them during the three-month program in regular meetings, a spokesperson told Recode.Snap will consider applicants who have ideas for storytelling on any mobile platform, not just Snapchat. This could take the form of “an interactive story, a show, an AR experience, building the next big media company or something in between,” according to the Yellow site.Each participant team will consist of one to four people, working full time out of Snap’s Venice, Calif., headquarters. The Snap representative also told Recode that the size of the equity stake the company will take from each startup would be comparable to that of Silicon Valley’s Y-Combinator incubator, which invests $120,000 for 7 percent and has accelerated the likes of Airbnb, Dropbox and Instacart.Snap is accepting applications for its first cohort through July 8. The program is slated to run Sept. 10 through Dec. 7, 2018.

Dolphins have been trapped in Costa Ricas Pacuare River for nearly a

first_imgRelated posts:Watch dolphins and rays devour hundreds of thousands of fish Police rescue injured dolphin from beach in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula It’s dolphin and whale season in southern Costa Rica One of Sea Shepherd’s missions in Costa Rica: Protecting whales Sediment blocking the Pacuare River’s mouth has left a group of dolphins stranded for nearly a month. The bottlenose dolphins – two adults and a calf – have been living 12 kilometers upriver in Lake Madre de Dios near Costa Rica’s Atlantic Coast.According to Gabriela Hernández, a veterinarian for ocean conservation group Fundación Keto and who has been monitoring the situation, dolphins have been known to occasionally enter the canals in search of food. The building of sediment combined with the low tide and lack of rain left the river mouth to the ocean too shallow for the dolphins to pass.“The behavior is perfectly normal,” Hernández said. “They were probably in the canal for a couple of days, giving the river mouth enough time to close up.”So far, the dolphins seem to be feeding and behaving normally. The large lake has been able to provide enough food for them, and the lake’s proximity to the ocean gives the water a high enough level of salinity for the animals’ skin. Officials from the Environment Ministry (MINAE) and Fundación Keto have made regular visits to the dolphins and have enlisted the help of people living in the area to take daily photos to monitor their conditions.Soon after the area’s residents reported spotting the dolphins, MINAE and the coast guard attempted to relocate them. Using boats and nets, officials tried to corner the dolphins in one area to net them, but failed. Currently, there are no plans for a repeat relocation mission.For now, the biggest risk to the dolphins’ safety is the lake’s human visitors.“We worry if too many people try to go see them that they could hit them with a boat or hurt them,” Hernández said. “People need to give at least 100 meters of space to the dolphins if they visit.”As long as the food holds out and people do not hurt them, Hernández and MINAE officials believe the dolphins should be able to survive indefinitely in the lake until the river mouth reopens.

UNICEF executive director talks drought immigration during visit to Costa Rica

first_imgThis Sanitation and Water for All meeting is timely given drought concerns in Costa Rica and Central America. What is UNICEF’s approach? Let’s take an area that often has drought: South Sudan. The dry season is often called the lean season because it really gets dry. We have programs where we’re helping women in villages have tap water. When you realize that people in the villages can help themselves if you get them the basic necessities, it changes lives. UNICEF works in humanitarian crises, and it also works in longer term development. So to your point about droughts, sometimes in the beginning they are dealt with as a crisis. But there is always a long term development. Water is one thing we need as human beings, so you should always think of it in a development context. It should not be that you truck in water for a day, but rather that you set up a system that can help people for a lifetime. How has UNICEF dealt with Central American immigration, specifically with Nicaraguan migrants to Costa Rica? UNICEF works with nonprofit organizations and with governments — every aspect of society, as well as businesses. What we’re trying to do is to help improve the environments in all of these countries so that young people and families want to stay, that there’s quality education, there’s a quality life.It’s their country; they’d prefer to stay at home. That’s what we need to encourage. You need to make sure there’s an economic engine for livelihood in every community. What we teach people in school is part of what they then know for a later livelihood. We need to make sure that the classroom is a place where you can learn foundational skills, but also life skills and occupational skills so that you can make a livelihood for yourself. You spent time this week in Honduras, a country for which the United States has threatened to cut humanitarian aid. What are your thoughts? I think foreign assistance is very important. The work you see being done by multilateral organizations, bilateral organizations, nonprofits, local governments and businesses — it all become the fabric that makes a society strong and healthy and good, in particular for children and young people. So we all need to work together and to try and make all of these societies strong and resilient.This story was made possible thanks to The Tico Times 5% Club.

Subscribe to our newsletter ULLOA, Heredia — Along with ministers from nearly 60 countries, Henrietta Fore, the executive director of UNICEF, attended this week’s Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) Sector Ministers’ Meeting at Costa Rica’s National Convention Center.The event, held on the heels of the Latin American Conference on Sanitation (LatinoSan), featured government officials and stakeholders from across the world who gathered to support the water-related targets of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.The Tico Times sat down with Fore to discuss her role as UNICEF’s executive director, and the organization’s goals in Costa Rica and Central America. Excerpts follow.You have been UNICEF’s executive director since January 2018. What have your priorities been since then? It’s very interesting leading an agency like UNICEF because you have a chance to hear children and young people all around the world — what they dream about, what they worry about, what they hope for. Henrietta Fore speaks in Costa Rica on April 4, 2019. UNICEF/Ezequiel BecerraI will tell you what I hear: The first is that they would like to start being in school earlier. But a kind of school that’s early child development, where they can go to class and move around, can learn about the beginnings of colors and numbers. They want to begin to learn earlier, and maybe that’s true now for all of us — that youth is speeding up, that we’re knowing more at earlier ages in life. The other thing that they’re telling us is that they’re not learning enough in primary school. They’re not coming out of primary school knowing how to read, write and do mathematics. Six out of 10 children and young people do not meet the minimum standards. And that does not bode well for their futures. And then the third thing that they’re telling us is that when they’re in that second decade of life, they’re not engaged in their secondary school. They find it’s boring; they don’t feel there’s any purpose in it. They’re not preparing themselves for the life that lies ahead. They’re learning things that are irrelevant to making a living. And for many, it’s that they’re not learning digital skills. So when you look at that, you say we as a world are somewhat failing them. We ought to be able to do more. We ought to be able to do better. As the executive director as UNICEF, it’s up to us to talk to governments about how they can improve, to talk to the private sector, the civil sector, and to make sure that children and young people’s voices are heard. You participated this week in an event with Costa Rican children at Heredia’s Centro Cívico por la Paz, a civic center which hosts UNICEF programs. What work are you focusing on with youth here? The children and young people we spoke to were gathering in safe spaces so they would have a chance to talk to each other. One young man was talking about the fact that he’d been bored at school — that he didn’t want to go to school, that Monday mornings were a real chore. But then he came to the center and he found friends, and he found ways to engage. He found things that he was interested in. It changed his mind, and it changed his outlook.They also talked about the fact that many of them had been very shy, and that they had not wanted to talk to others. That they had been lonely: there was a deep loneliness about not having a friend to talk to. What they’d found in these centers is an empowered voice, either through theater, or having a friend, or through having an issue or a mission — like more empowerment for girls — that they felt close to and therefore they wanted to speak, they wanted to engage. What you see is that you can make a difference in individual lives if you work at it. So for these groups — everything from generation courage to a group that works with young people who are disabled — it’s extremely important that we are inclusive societies and that we see the worth in everyone.center_img Related posts:Panama drops off Cuban migrants on Costa Rica’s doorstep Central American envoys in Israel Don’t forget about us USNS Comfort mission to stop in Costa Rica this year Costa Rica reports first baby born with Zika-linked microcephalylast_img read more

Cabinet approves changes to penal code

first_imgThe cabinet on Tuesday approved changes to the penal code, including expanding offences against individuals and deprivation of liberty.Justice Minister Giorgos Savvides said the cabinet has added the term ‘deprivation of liberty’ in the penal code, which until now only included abduction as an offence.“It was judged by court decisions also that it should have been extended so as to substantiate these offences,” he told reporters.The cabinet also amended the criminal procedure rules, removing one of the options afforded to a defendant who had a case to answer.Currently, a defendant has three options: to remain silent, to take the witness stand and undergo cross examination, and to make a statement from the dock without cross-examination, although this does not bear the same gravity as being questioned under oath.The authorities have decided to remove the latter option “as part of the evolution of our system and we are following the practice in other countries like England and Australia, which have a similar legal system,” the minister said.“If a defendant wants to say something, they should undergo cross-examination like all other witnesses,” he said.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
