TransCanada CEO hopeful on LNG moving forward cautiously on Keystone XL

first_imgCALGARY – The head of TransCanada Corp. said Thursday that he’s still optimistic about Canada’s liquefied natural gas export prospects and that the company is proceeding very carefully on its controversial Keystone XL pipeline.Speaking at an investment conference in Whistler, B.C., Russ Girling said the company sees an emerging window of demand opportunity in 2022 for the Shell-backed LNG Canada project to go forward and expects to hear a decision in the next 12 months or so.On the company’s Keystone XL project, Girling said TransCanada has looked carefully at how the alternative route for the pipeline was approved in Nebraska and is now confident the decision will hold.“We’re very comfortable with the legality and the technical underpinning of that decision,” he said.His comments come as opponents of the pipeline say they’re looking to challenge the legitimacy of the approval, because it wasn’t for the preferred route TransCanada had originally applied for.Girling said the alternate route isn’t a challenge technically and the extra few miles in length will add about $100 million to $200 million to the project cost.With a new route approved, he said the company is working to acquire land and continue engineering and is being especially careful on project spending until they’re fully ready to start construction.“We’ve got a lot of bruises from not being really careful, so we’ll just be very careful of how we spend our money through the next 12 months.”One of the company’s recent setbacks was cancelling the Energy East pipeline, which Girling said was done because of its complexity and difficulty compared with other projects.“It didn’t appear like we could get all the pieces put together that were necessary.”Companies in this story: (TSX:TRP)last_img read more

Protesters Interrupt Donald Trump’s Speech in New York, Security Drags Them…

Miami – Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump was delivering a speech on Friday at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan when a group of protesters stormed the venue and accused him of fascism.Trump was at the Pennsylvania GOP’s annual Commonwealth Club luncheon at his former property, the Plaza Hotel when a mob of protesters, including a Jewish group interrupted him, according ty NY Daily News.“Mama, mama tell us why, why our people gotta die? Donald Trump is trying to bring us down, attacking people black and brown,” the protesters chanted. A video posted by Penn Live The Patriot News, showed the protesters chanting, while security guards grabbed and dragged them out of the venue.One of the protesters, a woman, got pushed and thrown to the floor as security personnel kicked her out of the hotel.“No, no, what is wrong with you? That is not appropriate behavior,” another woman is heard yelling in the background.According to the NY Daily News, Trump’s speech was full of offenses against his contender, Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.Two groups of protesters stormed his presentation halfway through, the same report noted.The first group, who were seated at one of the luncheon’s tables, reportedly stood up and quoted portions of a poem called “First They Came” about those that remain silent, while suffering persecutions.The second group of protesters were with Jews for Racial and Economic Justice.“This is dangerous,” New York resident Jordan Wouk said of ‘The Donald’s’ poll lead.“I’m very upset about what I see. It’s creeping fascism from this part of the GOP,” he added.Marjory Fine, another Jewish protester, said that the billionaire’s speech and ideals remind her of the Nazis, which still hurts her because her family escaped the Holocaust and was taken in by the U.S.“What he (Trump) said about ‘make America good again’ … it sounds like fascism,” Fine said.“If we weren’t allowed to come here as immigrants, we would have been in trouble,” she added.Other protesters who remained outside the Plaza Hotel manifested against Trump’s ideas with slogans and other signs.Marni Halasa, figure skater and belly dancer, who has appeared in nearly 100 protests, showed up to the Plaza dressed in the American flag with a sign that read, “Trump Make America Hate Again”. read more

Security Council renews UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus

Acting on the recommendation of Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the Security Council today extended the mandate of United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) until 15 June 2002. In a unanimously adopted resolution, the Council also urged the Turkish Cypriot side and Turkish forces to rescind restrictions imposed on 30 June 2000 on the operations of UNFICYP and to restore the military status quo ante at Strovilia, a small hamlet inhabited by Greek Cypriots.Reporting recently on the activities of the Force over the past six months, Mr. Annan wrote that under the present circumstances, “I consider the peacekeeping operation in Cyprus essential for the maintenance of the ceasefire on the island.” In today’s resolution, the Council noted that this view was shared by the Government of Cyprus. Among its various duties, UNFICYP monitors the ceasefire lines in Cyprus, which extend some 180 kilometres across the island. The buffer zone between them varies in width from under 20 metres to some 7 kilometres and covers 3 per cent of the island. Surveillance is maintained through a system of observation posts, as well as through air, vehicle and foot patrols.The UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus was established in 1964 and has been renewed on a periodic basis since then. As of November 2001, it comprised 1,227 troops, 35 civilian police and 139 civilian personnel. read more

People of western Sudan report nightmares suicidal impulses as result of assaults

In a new report, “The Effect of Conflicts on Health and Well-Being of Women and Girls in Darfur: Situational Analysis Report, Conversations with the Community,” based on testimony from women, as well as men, UNICEF said that on questions of safety and security, “sexual violence and abuse was mentioned in every group discussion as an existent and serious problem for girls and women,” with a deep impact on fathers and husbands.Girls and women reported that incidents of sexual violence, abuse and abductions by the Janjaweed Arab militia were continuous, with most cases of sexual assault taking place outside of the camps for the internally displaced, usually when they were collecting firewood, or grass, UNICEF said in its summary.The girls and women added that in addition to pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and other illnesses, the psychosocial consequences for them included shame, depression, social stigma, difficulty coping, and at the worst, some girls and women had committed suicide, the study said.All of the groups, but especially the men, felt powerless and humiliated by the ongoing violence directed at the women and girls. In one location, the men also said the only reason they had not committed suicide was because it was forbidden by the Muslim religion.The men summed up their situation by saying, “Their eyes see, but their hands cannot reach,” UNICEF said.Many men said if their daughters were raped, they would have no choice but to deal with it. As husbands, they would care for a child of rape, but would always bear in mind that that was a Janjaweed child and that the identity would be a problem for such a child in the future in their communities.Unmarried girls were the most affected by sexual violence and some failed to go to clinics or hospitals due to stigma and shame, UNICEF said.The study’s main objectives were to increase humanitarian understanding of how the conflict affected women’s and girls’ health, it said, to determine the men’s perceptions of those consequences, to gain insight into the community’s coping mechanisms and to recommend donor action.In its recommendations, UNICEF highlighted the need for better access to improved, more extensive health care services and increased prevention of and response to sexual violence, including training the police and the military of the Sudanese Government and African Union (AU) peacekeepers.Refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) need fuel-efficient stoves, community-driven income generation activities, access to education for girls, and community-based psychosocial treatments. In addition, an in-depth investigation needs to be undertaken to examine the barriers to seeking health care and education, it said. read more

McDonalds 3rdquarter net income falls hurt by stronger dollar

by News Staff Posted Nov 2, 2012 6:28 am MDT McDonald’s 3rd-quarter net income falls, hurt by stronger dollar AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Tough competition in the U.S. and the weakening economy abroad was a double whammy for McDonald’s in the third-quarter, sending the burger chain’s net income down nearly 4 per cent.McDonald’s said it was adjusting some of its plans to deal with the pressures, including stepping up advertising for its dollar menu and bringing back the popular McRib sandwich nationally in December to drive traffic into U.S. stores.The world’s largest hamburger chain with 33,000 locations worldwide has thrived in boom and bust times by selling cheap eats and constantly updating its menu. But global economic pressures and intensifying competition are wearing at the company, which does two-thirds of its business overseas.“When economic crisis began in 2008, few people thought the environment would still be as uncertain and fragile as it is today,” said CEO Don Thompson in a call with analysts. “It is clear however that this operating environment is the new normal. As such our near-term focus is on stabilizing and growing traffic and market share.”Thompson said revenue in stores open at least 13 months, a key restaurant metric, is trending negative so far in October.That news sent shares down $3.31, or 3.6 per cent, to $89.55 in trading. The stock had been down 7 per cent since the beginning of the year.“McDonald’s is facing a lot of pressure,” said Morningstar analyst R.J. Hottovy. “They’re seeing more competition from their quick-service restaurants and fast-casual peers in the U.S. and facing austerity measures and macro-economic pressures in Europe and Asia”Oak Brook, Ill.-based McDonald’s said Friday its net income fell to $1.46 billion, or $1.43 per share. That compares with net income of $1.51 billion, or $1.45 per share last year. Analysts expected net income of $1.47 per share, according to Fact Set.The stronger dollar hurt net income by 8 cents per share. When the dollar is strong, international sales translate into fewer dollars back at home.Revenue was nearly flat at $7.15 billion from $7.17 billion last year. Analysts expected revenue of $7.17 billion.Revenue in stores open at least 13 months rose 1.9 per cent globally, including a 1.2 per cent rise in the U.S., where the company said it faced “broad competitive activity.”McDonald’s is facing stiffer competition from newer chains like Panera Bread Co., which offers higher-end food in a fast casual atmosphere. Long-time rivals such as Wendy’s Inc. and Burger King Worldwide Inc. are also reworking their menus, renovating restaurants and launching new ad campaigns to win back customers.McDonald’s said it will step up advertising around its dollar menu rather than its more profitable extra value menu that includes items more expensive than $1. Fast-food chains usually lose money on dollar menus, but they’re used as a traffic driver in the hopes customers will spend more once they’re at McDonald’s. It’s also bringing back the always-popular McRib sandwich in December and introducing a new item, a cheddar bacon onion sandwich that will be available in both chicken and beef varieties.Hottovy, the Morningstar analyst, said focusing on the value menu was a good move for McDonald’s: “In this environment you have to give customers what they want, and across the globe consumers are squarely focused on value.”In Europe, where McDonald’s does 40 per cent of its business, revenue in stores open at least 13 months rose 1.8 per cent, hurt by negative guest traffic.In Asia/Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, the measure rose 1.4 per cent as the company promoted limited-time offers and traffic increased. In China, the measure rose 3.6 per cent. Many U.S. companies are focusing on China for growth, but there is concern of a slowdown in the country. But Thompson said the country is a “market with significant potential,” and that McDonald’s is on track to open 225 to 250 restaurants there this year, with the goal of having 2000 open by the end of 2013.Janney Capital Markets analyst Mark Kalinowski said he expects tougher comparisons with a year ago will weigh on sales trends and lowered his estimates on McDonald’s for the current fiscal year as well as fiscal 2013 and 2014. He kept his “Neutral” rating on the stock.“We would not be buyers in the context of tougher year-over-year comparisons in the U.S. to be lapped over October through May,” he wrote in a client note. read more

Des miniAVC qui à long terme affecteraient la mémoire

first_imgDes “mini-AVC” qui, à long terme, affecteraient la mémoirePubliant leurs travaux dans la revue Neurology, des chercheurs américains suggèrent que des accidents vasculaires cérébraux minimes et à première vue anodins, survenant au cours de l’existence, pourraient à la longue affecter les capacités cognitives et de mémorisation des individus vieillissant.Touchant une personne sur trois à partir de 70 ans et pouvant survenir dès l’âge de 30 ans, les accidents vasculaires cérébraux (AVC) dits ‘silencieux’ sont sans symptômes apparents et n’affectent que quelques neurones. Toutefois, ils pourraient avoir, au final, des conséquences importantes sur la mémoire et les facultés cognitives, selon des chercheurs de l’Université Columbia (New-York).À lire aussiUne activité électrique détectée dans des mini-cerveaux développés en laboratoireCeux-ci ont soumis 658 personnes de 79 ans en moyenne à des tests cognitifs (mémoire, langage, vitesse de réaction, perception visuelle…) couplés à des IRM. Les résultats, indépendants de la taille de l’hippocampe – une partie du cerveau pourtant considérée comme étroitement liée à la mémoire –  montrent en revanche que, parmi ces ‘cobayes’, les 174 personnes (soit 26 %) présentant des AVC silencieux sont moins performantes que les autres.Mais cette découverte ne s’arrête pas aux cause du déclin cognitif lié à l’âge. Potentiellement favorisés par l’obésité, le cholestérol, les maladies cardiovasculaires et l’hypertension, ces AVC silencieux pourraient même jouer un rôle dans la maladie d’Alzheimer. “Je pense (…) [que] les maladies cardiovasculaires contribuent aux symptômes de la maladie d’Alzheimer”, conclut ainsi Adam Brickman, l’un des auteurs de l’étude cité par Futura-Sciences.

ASA Applauds Completion of Senate Farm Bill

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) today applauded approval by the Senate Agriculture Committee of its proposal for the 2007 Farm Bill. ASA President John Hoffman, a soybean farmer from Waterloo, Iowa, said that “ASA appreciates action by the Senate Agriculture Committee in reporting a bill, and urges its early consideration by the full Senate, so we can complete omnibus farm legislation this year.” Hoffman added that “while the bill passed by Committee does not fully reflect ASA’s priorities on support for soybean producer income and biodiesel production, ASA will work with both Senate and House Conferees to address these issues and reach an agreement that will meet with needs of U.S. soybean farmers.”Hoffman’s comments followed a two-day mark-up by the Senate Committee during which draft legislation introduced by Chairman Tom Harkin (D-IA) was debated and several amendments were considered. The bill would establish two farm program options, including the current “three legged stool” of marketing loan, direct payment, and counter-cyclical program or an Average Crop Revenue program. The latter would include a fixed payment of $15 per base acre and a payment equal to the shortfall between a state’s target revenue and actual state revenue for a commodity at the time of harvest. ASA has supported offering an optional revenue-based program to producers.Amendments adopted included one by Senator John Thune (R-SD) that restores a producer’s option to take a Loan Deficiency Payment (LDP) in lieu of a marketing loan when prices are below loan level at the time of harvest. ASA had written a letter to the Committee urging restoration of the LDP option, and was advised by Senator Thune’s office that the amendment was offered as a result of ASA’s initiative.Responding to the Senate bill as reported by the Committee, ASA President Hoffman commented that “the Senate legislation still includes provisions that ASA will work to address as it moves to the Senate floor and to Conference with the House farm bill.” According to Hoffman, “these provisions include increasing the soybean target price from $6.00 to a minimum of $6.30 per bushel, and increasing funding for the Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels.”Hoffman stated that “ASA strongly opposes introduction of the recourse loan under the proposed ACR program, and we will continue to work to eliminate it in Conference.” Hoffman concluded that “ASA would like to ensure funding for the Quality Incentive Program to promote production of soybeans with high-stability oils, to enable U.S. food companies to eliminate trans fats without increasing use of unhealthy saturated fats.”The Senate farm bill is expected to move to the Senate floor in the next two weeks, and Conference with the House Agriculture Committee is anticipated in December. Provisions of the 2002 Farm Bill will begin to expire in early 2008.last_img read more

Jeff Lynne Humbly Messin With Music Required Listening

first_img Photo: Rebecca Sapp/ Hear It Now: Alessia Cara | “Required Listening” As a singer, composer and producer, the maestro has matured to create music with his childhood idols and a pantheon of legendary artistsPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Oct 1, 2018 – 3:33 pm On the Sept. 26 episode of the GRAMMY Museum’s Required Listening podcast, Artistic Director Scott Goldman interviewed Jeff Lynne and explored the phenomenal range of his creativity — spanning bands including ELO and the Traveling Wilburys, and his success producing legends such as George Harrison and Tom Petty. Sharing his unassuming approach to “messin’ with music,” the GRAMMY winner stays down-to-earth about his accomplishments, bands and hits. “He has to be the most humble superstar I’ve ever encountered,” Goldman said.Listen Now: “Required Listening” With Jeff LynneLynne credits much of his recent activity performing, including this year’s touring with Jeff Lynne’s ELO, as reaching a higher profile after the 2012 documentary Mr. Blue Sky: The Story Of Jeff Lynne & ELO. “That’s what started it and then suddenly the BBC got on and said, ‘How’d you like to play a concert in Hyde Park, top of the bill?” Lynne described. “I was so worried … because that was the first big, proper show for many years, 30 years actually.”After so many years, “I thought there’d be nobody there … because we were last on,” he’d worried before the show. Lynne recalled the night of his comeback:”A big long day full of music, probably eight hours of it or something, and we’re on last so by the time it gets dark, I thought ‘Oh god, I hope somebody is still here.’ And I climbed up these ladders to the stage and it was packed, the whole park was packed. It was 50,000 people. So I went, ‘Well maybe they do like this music after all.'” I’m With Her | “Required Listening” Photo: Rebecca Sapp/ Listen: Justin Tranter | “Required Listening” Scott Goldman and Dan AuerbachPhoto: Alison Buck/Getty Images Listen: Jeff Lynne | “Required Listening” Listen: Cold War Kids | “Required Listening” Prev Next Twitter Lynne’s music hasn’t been forgotten and neither has his comprehensive background. Playing every major role in music, from songwriting through production, makes for a dizzying array of all-star anecdotes. As an artist he grew from a boy idolizing Roy Orbison and Del Shannon for their plaintive expressions of loneliness to writing and producing for both, from idolizing the Beatles to writing and producing with George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Goldman and Lynne cover highlights of all of it, including the stage-prop spaceship left over from Lynne’s 1978 ELO tour and the first Traveling Wilburys sessions spent recording in Bob Dylan’s garage.Traveling Wilburys Volume One won Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal at the 32nd GRAMMY Awards. Lynne’s fellow super group members winning with him that night were Dylan, Harrison, Orbison and Tom Petty. That same year Lynne and Petty’s work on the album Full Moon Fever was also nominated along with the lead single “Free Fallin'” they co-wrote and Lynne co-produced. Lynne’s rich life creating is enough to cause flashbacks and audio hallucinations, as he recounts his early success covering “Roll Over Beethoven,” how he wrote “Evil Woman” in an inspired six minutes, and describes the fun he had writing tunes in the disco genre.While almost two dozen classics from his catalog are summed up in Lynne’s 2017 concert film Jeff Lynne’s ELO: Wembley Or Bust, he promises more is in store. Alongside his humility, his inspiration and motivation remain undiminished. And he still looks forward to discovering new chords while in the throes of composing.”I love messin’ with music, basically, it’s what I do,” Lynne shared. “I’ve the same passion — probably a little bit lazier than I was — but I will go at something until I get it … I love chasing that tune and that melody and that set of words that fits right on the good bit.”Jeff Lynne is now on tour in the UK and Ireland, leading Jeff Lynne’s ELO. “Required Listening” Billy Porter Jr. Erika Ender | “Required Listening” Podcast Photo: Rebecca Sapp/ Jeff Lynne: Humbly “Messin’ With Music” | “Required
