Autoworkers to protest during GM investors meeting in Windsor

first_imgOSHAWA – Autoworkers from across Ontario are set to rally in Windsor on Friday across from the General Motors headquarters in Detroit.The 11 a.m. protest against the company’s decision to close a plant in Oshawa coincides with a General Motors investors meeting.Unifor, the union that represents GM autoworkers, is bussing protesters in from cities that include Kitchener, Brampton and London.The rally is the latest in a string of actions opposing the plant’s closure.Earlier in the week, unionized workers at the Oshawa assembly plant staged two work stoppages to protest their employer’s decision to close the facility.The protest came after Unifor president Jerry Dias sat down with GM on Tuesday to talk about proposals the union had made to extend the life of the Ontario plant, but came away empty-handed.Approximately 2,600 workers will lose their jobs when the plant closes at the end of the year.Related content:GM rejects Unifor proposals to keep Oshawa plant open; workers walk off the jobGM workers back to work after 2nd sit-in at Oshawa plantGM working to retrain employees affected by Oshawa plant closurelast_img read more

Sri Lanka outraged over purported US email

“We have continued to openly and comprehensively brief the international community in Geneva and elsewhere of all recent developments in this regard. Moreover we plan to inform the Council and its Membership of the current position as to all relevant matters during the forthcoming session of the Council – a practice that we will continue in the future,” the External Affairs Ministry said.Sri Lanka says it is unfortunate that such an “unethical distortion” of the true position has been resorted to by interested parties who can only be pursuing some parallel agenda, seeking to achieve some collateral gain, given Sri Lanka’s commitment to engage constructively with its partners, its forthrightness in discussing issues pertaining to post conflict recovery and the realization of positive developments within its territory relating to reconciliation and development. Sri Lanka expressed outrage over an email purportedly sent to member states of the human rights council by the U.S Mission in Geneva seeking support for a resolution on Sri Lanka.The External Affairs Ministry quoted Tamara Kunanayakam, the Sri Lankan Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka to the United Nations in Geneva as saying that the email dated 21st February, purporting to have originated from the Mission of the United States to the United Nations and other International Organisations at Geneva, was signed by one Miriam Shahrzard Schive. “It is inaccurate and misleading to seek to create such an impression that Sri Lanka was consulted, has cooperated or in any other manner been part of such a process. Indeed, Sri Lanka has started on the implementation of the recommendations of the LLRC, among other initiatives to secure peace, prosperity and reconciliation for our people, in the aftermath of the thirty year conflict against separatist terrorism,” the External Affairs Ministry statement said.Sri Lanka says it has consistently maintained that it is unnecessary, unhelpful and counterproductive to bring any resolution concerning this matter barely two months after the publication of a report by a commission appointed by the Sri Lankan President known as the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission and more particularly in the context of implementation of its recommendations. “This e-mail creates the impression that diplomatic officials of the U.S. have been in close contact with the Government of Sri Lanka, as well as this Mission, to work, collaboratively on issues of accountability (in Sri Lanka) and the implementation of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission’s Report. It goes on to express the hope that the Sri Lankan Government will work with us on this Resolution. It obliquely canvasses the position of a co-sponsorship of a Resolution and conveys a false impression that Sri Lanka is working with the United States on this Resolution,” the External Affairs Ministry said. The External Affairs Ministry insisted that that at no time has the Sri Lankan government or it’s Mission in Geneva, ever worked with representatives of the United States on any Resolution on whatsoever. read more

Annan calls for more flexibility from both sides in talks over Kosovo

In his latest report to the Security Council, released today and covering the period from 1 May to 14 August, Mr. Annan said the discussions – including the first high-level meeting between both sides in July along with other talks covering boundaries and cultural sites – revealed that “the parties remain far apart on most issues.”“I am disappointed… that little common ground has been identified between the positions of the Serbian and Kosovo delegations, which remain committed to ‘substantial autonomy’ and ‘full independence’ respectively, with minimal space for negotiation.”“Both sides would be better served by more flexibility in their positions. I again call on both sides to engage in these talks in a spirit of compromise. It is the responsibility of the parties to find common ground and a sustainable solution, acceptable to both sides, although the support of the international community remains essential to ensure progress.”Mr. Annan also highlighted the continued boycott by Kosovo Serbs of the province’s local Government ‘Provisional Institutions,’ and repeated calls on Belgrade to “remove all impediments” to their participation, while also urging Kosovo’s leaders to redouble their outreach to all communities.“Now is the time to reassure all communities that they have a place in Kosovo in the future regardless of its status.” Albanians outnumber Serbs and others by 9 to 1 in the province, which the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) has administered since 1999 when NATO drove out Yugoslav troops amid ethnic fighting.Mr. Annan says that despite the “generally stable political situation,” he is nevertheless concerned with violence targeting people or religious sites, and strongly condemns them, “particularly those that are inter-ethnic,” calling for all those responsible to be quickly brought to justice. read more

Firefighters come under bottle and firework attack as they attend scene

first_imgFIREFIGHTERS FROM DUBLIN Fire Brigade came under bottle and rocket attack last night as they reponded to reports of a fire in O’Devaney Gardens, located near the North Circular Road on Dublin’s northside.The incident, which occurred just after 6.30pm, was their third time attending the same location in a single day.Responding to calls of a “domestic fire” – a fire with the potential of someone being inside – the scene was attended by two appliances from Phibsboro Fire Station and a third from Tara Street Fire Station.Speaking to, a person at the scene said it was the first time that they had seen rockets directed at firefighters in this way.As service personnel were removing equipment from their vehicle to attend the fire in the second floor apartment, one of the rockets rebounded off the vehicle, striking a firefighter in the face.No serious injuries were sustained, however.Members of Dublin Fire Brigade have now started to log all incidents such as these – despite the paperwork involved – after being told by their union that if they aren’t reported, they aren’t viewed as having happened.The incident comes less than two weeks after the failure to pass the Assaults on Emergency Workers Bill 2012, which would have seen a minimum jail term of five years for anyone convicted of assaulting or threatening the life of an emergency worker on duty.Read: Dáil to debate five year jail terms for assaults on emergency workers >last_img read more

Concern about cherrypicking unemployed as government privatises job scheme

first_imgUpdated 12.24SINN FÉIN’S AENGUS Ó Snodaigh has expressed concern about a private company ‘cherrypicking’ jobseekers to find work for, as the government moves to outsource one of its job activation schemes.The tender process closes at the end of February for the provision of services for this scheme, JobPath, which is supposed to be aimed specifically at the long-term unemployed and those most distant from the labour market.Ó Snodaigh said that, as a company’s profits will be linked to the number of people it helps back into employment, resources may be moved to those closer to the labour market.“If we go from the experience of this in England in particular, companies there have been doing what is usually called ‘cherrypicking’ but, believe it or not, they call it ‘creaming and parking’ – they cream the best ones off the top and park those most difficult to get jobs for,” he explained.Some of the companies operating these services in England, which Ó Snodaigh described as having “dubious records”, have expressed interest in the tender process for JobPath.The Sinn Féin TD said many of those who have been unemployed for a long time have “quite a complex rage of issues” and staff working for the Department of Social Protection now have the training to handle this, with the creation of Intreo offices that offer all services for the unemployed under the one roof.“We should at least retain this in the public service, this money would be better spent on recruiting new people in to work as career guidance teachers who would have the specific skills to do this job,” he said.This isn’t something that should be down to just efficiencies, it might be easy to get someone a job but he might be back again very quickly if his issues aren’t addressed properly. It’s about getting them a job that’s sustainable for them. We could put all the PHDs into security jobs in the morning but that isn’t using their skills to their advantage and giving them opportunities where they can advance.This week in the Dáil, the TD will be calling on Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton to halt the tendering process and turn back from the privatisation of schemes aimed at getting people back to work.In response to a query from, the Department of Social Protection said it is not necessarily the case that contracts under JobPath will be with private companies. A spokesperson said many of the larger companies involved in this activity in other countries are not-for-profit organisations like the Salvation Army and Working Links.The JobPath model ensures that all programme participants must receive a defined level of service. Higher payments will be made in respect of those who are further from the labour market and lower payments to those who are closer to the labour market. Companies will not be able to recover their costs or make a profit without getting people into jobs.“The JobPath model also provides that fees will be reduced if the number of people in work exceed certain predetermined levels thus restricting the amount of profit a company can earn,” they said.First published 06.50Read: Protests at some Advance Pitstop branches over JobBridge internships>FactCheck: Were 58,000 new jobs created in Ireland in 2013?>last_img read more

Outlook grim for SJM Bernstein

first_imgBrokerage Sanford C Bernstein says it expects shares in Macau concessionaire SJM Holdings to continue to drop with “little improvement possible” in a damning assessment of the company’s future prospects.In a Friday note, analysts Vitaly Umansky, Zhen Gong and Kelsey Zhu outline a number of risks facing SJM in the long-term, most notable among them being the possibility of losing some or all of the satellite casinos it currently controls under external operators should the Macau government grant some satellite owners direct licenses. RelatedPosts Load More Melco likely to pass Australian regulatory inquiry, target full Crown acquisition: Bernstein Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts Pansy Ho becomes first Macau casino boss to speak out for Hong Kong government on protests “SJM has the second largest number of gaming tables in Macau, however 53% of SJM tables (47% of VIP tables, 54% of mass tables) are in satellite casinos,” Bernstein said. “The satellite business generates less than a quarter of SJM’s EBITDA,” yet, “due to the complex relationships between SJM and the satellite casino owners, these tables are not fully under the control of SJM and difficult to be put to better use.“Moreover, there has been concern about whether all the satellite casinos will remain under SJM when current concessions expire in 2020 or 2022 … in the long run, there is a risk for SJM to lose its satellites business if the Macau government decides to grant new licenses to the satellite casino owners.”SJM has suffered significantly from the lack of a Cotai presence in recent years, with its Macau GGR market share falling from a high of 31.3% in 2010 to just 15.0% today.However, Bernstein has warned that even the long-awaited opening of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace – coming at least 18 months after the last of its fellow concessionaires launched their Cotai properties – may not spark the revival the company is banking on.“We expect Grand Lisboa Palace will not open until late 2019 or even 2020,” Bernstein said.“Due to the high construction cost of the property and low ROI in the first few years, we foresee poor value creation for the Grand Lisboa Palace compared with other new Cotai properties.”Bernstein also took aim at recent board movements following the retirement last month of the company’s kingpin, Dr Stanley Ho, which saw his daughter Daisy Ho appointed Chairman, wife Angela Leong promoted to Co-Chairman and Executive Director and ex-wife Ina Chan elevated to the board.“Governance remains convoluted,” the analysts said. “Instead of using Stanley Ho’s retirement as an impetus to make governance and management changes, the company has opted to further entrench the status quo. A hydra-like three headed co-chairman group and the elevation of entrenched management is not an indication that any shake up at the company is forthcoming.”last_img read more

The Same Only Different

first_imgRepetition is part of any magazine’s DNA, especially if you are news-driven and have to follow key players who ARE the story. Michael Jordan was on the cover of Sports Illustrated more than 30 times, for instance, and Tiger Woods may break that record before he hangs up his clubs. Many features in b-to-b’s are considered “regulars,” which return to the magazine lineups year after year because they are on the minds of business managers: the annual CEO Roundtable, Economic Outlook, the Salary Survey.Likewise, with seasonal or anniversary topics, repetition is unavoidable. If it’s November, food books are likely to have a turkey dinner on the cover. As Christmas approaches, and if the bulk of your advertising revenue is linked to the holiday season, look for a shopping guide. The New Yorker reprises its 1925 premier issue cover, by founding art director Rea Irvin, each February to celebrate the magazine’s anniversary.Some topics are repeated because they are linked to special events and bonus distribution strategies. And there are franchise issues, of course—SI’s swimsuits, Car and Driver’s car of the year, Fortune’s 500—that are not considered repetitious at all.  They are awaited.Indeed, repetition can be a good thing, for a magazine has to be familiar, like an old acquaintance that the reader is comfortable visiting with again: “How are the kids?”  “Remember the time we…” But just as we grow tired of someone who dwells endlessly on old topics, so too with magazines. We need to move on. When I was overseeing Boston magazine, we did a big special section on tiles in the home—in the bathroom, kitchen, around the pool, all tiles all the time—and it was a spectacular success. Advertisers and readers loved it. The next year, the ad manager wanted to do tiles again. I put the topic off for another year, however, because very little had happened to advance the topic—and you have to be careful about repeating yourself editorially. Readers wonder why you are returning to a topic that they just read about. Remember, that’s who advertisers want to reach, too—an interested reader, not someone who is turned off by the same old stuff.The key for successful repetition, therefore, is to be the same, only different. Here are a few suggestions for avoiding the same-old blahs:1. Rethink the editorial calendar. A good calendar is carefully constructed around a magazine’s reader profile. Instead of reprising last year’s topics, look at your reader profile for new ideas. If readers are planning to add on to their home, that means a Home Building Resource Guide. If readers are new to an area, trying to decide where to live, where to enroll their children in schools, that could be an Annual Guide to Neighborhoods or to Day Care or to Schools. 2. Look for different themes. Brainstorm and start thinking outside the thematic box. Some offbeat themes I have observed recently include The Truth Issue (Writer’s Digest), the Envy Issue (Boston magazine), and the All-Abs Special (Shape).3. Give a repeat topic cover billing, but don’t make it the cover story. Highlight the old topic in a slash or in the skyline area above the logo, but don’t give it cover story status again.  Enough is enough, already. 4. Change its location and its look inside the book. If you have been treating a repeat topic as a feature, move it to the back of the book. Give it a directory look, with a special inside cover. If the topic means returning to the same old players (as many city magazines have found in their annual “Best of” issues), create a Hall of Fame category and put the oldsters there in a sidebar. Focus on the new players in the main story.5. Finally, start thinking long-term. You may have to stick with the oldies but goldies for a year or two, but what about after that? Assign a new editor or writer to the beat. When you have the same old people doing the same old things, it’s no surprise when you get the same-old same-old. Your goal as editor is to turn the same old into the same new, and to keep the reader coming back for more. John Brady is visiting professional at the Scripps School of Journalism, Ohio University.

Inupiaq woman criticizes use of her image in Dunleavy ad campaign deletes

first_imgThen-Sen. Mike Dunleavy, R-Wasilla, during a Senate Finance Committee meeting in April 2017. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)A Fairbanks woman objected to video of her being included in a campaign advertisement without her consent. Republican candidate for governor Mike Dunleavy’s campaign removed the footage soon after it became aware of her concern.Listen nowThe woman said the ad took advantage of her Inupiaq ethnicity.Marjorie Tahbone said she became aware of the ad on social media when friends forwarded it to her.In the original version of the ad, there are several seconds of her walking in the woods, and of her dancing as part of a group.“It’s just my face and it’s obviously my face,” Tahbone said. “And I’m obviously a brown person and I’m obviously Native in there. And so, the issue of them using me as an image to portray the support of the Native community, I wasn’t comfortable with.”Tahbone criticized the ad in a Facebook post, saying that she doesn’t support Dunleavy. The campaign took down the ad on Sunday, shortly after it became aware of the post. The ad’s been reposted, without the footage of Tahbone.Tahbone works to provide Inuit tattoos to women. She lives in Fairbanks and is originally from Nome. She said Dunleavy’s campaign may have had the right to use the footage, but should have asked her before doing it.“They made a huge mistake, by just using me, using my face without my permission,” Tahbone said.Dunleavy campaign manager Brett Huber said the use of footage from an AJ+ news video was typical for campaign ads. AJ+ is part of the Al Jazeera Media Network.“We saw the comments posted on Facebook, so we took swift action to remove the image,” Dunleavy said. “I sent a message to Marjorie explaining to her that while the footage was obtained and used legally, we didn’t want anybody included in an ad that they didn’t support.”Huber said Dunleavy wouldn’t seek to use an image of an Alaska Native woman to convey support from Natives. He noted that Dunleavy’s wife Rose is an Alaska Native.“One of the things that I like the most about our candidate is he’s colorblind and he’s gender-blind,” Huber said. “Mike’s been married to an Alaska Native woman for 31 years. He would never advantage specifically an Alaska Native, a Caucasian or any other race. People are people, so certainly that was never our intent, nor would it be something that Mike would pursue.”AJ+ senior producer Maggie Beidelman said the company wouldn’t have granted permission to use the news video if Dunleavy’s campaign had asked. Video makers might use brief clips for illustration and other purposes, arguing they can under the copyright doctrine of fair use.Dunleavy resigned from his Wasilla-area state Senate seat in January to focus on his campaign. He previously served as a teacher and school superintendent in Kotzebue.Dunleavy faces six opponents in the Aug. 21 primary: former Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell; Darin Colbry, a janitor and landscaping worker; Thomas Gordon, a heavy equipment mechanic; Gerald Heikes, who has owned a drywall company; Merica Hlatcu, an engineer; and Michael Sheldon, a handyman.last_img read more

Through December 2011, premium travelers flying from the airline’s 17 U.S. gateways will enjoy dishes created by award-winning chefs from The Ritz-Carlton hotels in Denver, Battery Park (New York City), South Beach (Miami) and Laguna Niguel (Southern California).“This expanded program is a testament to the unique and successful collaboration between Lufthansa and Ritz-Carlton, which has generated the highest customer satisfaction ratings from our passengers,” explained Nicola Lange, Director, Marketing & Customer Relations The Americas.“The exceptional relationship forged between our chefs and the culinary specialists from Lufthansa and LSG Sky Chefs has allowed us to develop menu selections that are even more creative and enticing,” said George McNeill, Vice President, Culinary Corporate Chef for The Ritz-Carlton.The new menus for dining at 35,000 feet were developed under the direction of McNeill, and showcase the talents of Ritz-Carlton Executive Chefs Andres Jiminez (Laguna Niguel and Denver), Jacques Sorci (Battery Park, NYC), and Thomas Connell (South Beach). The chefs considered many factors in creating these menus, and applied their singular culinary signature style to recipes that would appeal to fliers from vegetarians to hearty appetites. As just one example, Chef Sorci settled on pink peppercorn ahi tuna, Rivera style and fresh grilled halibut prepared with nutritious green lentils.In order to ensure the menus would be adaptable to high altitude elements, the experts at LSG Sky Chefs in Dallas – Lufthansa’s catering group – oversaw menu implementation, providing expertise that helped The Ritz-Carlton chefs make the necessary adjustments to keep the meals fresh and exceptionally tasteful.The Ritz-Carlton properties will be featured in two month cycles to keep the menus varied, especially for frequent flyers in premium class. November/December 2010 and July/August 2011 will feature the choices of Chef Andres Jiminez from Laguna Niguel. His menu choices range from grilled eggplant, ricotta, sautéed wild mushroom lasagna; whole grain and lime roasted chicken breast with rosemary potatoes; and grilled beef tenderloin served with Costa Rican style ride.The March/April and November/December 2011 menu cycles created by Thomas Connell of South Beach can be expected to reflect the local ingredients and food traditions of the Cuban and Latin American restaurants that make Miami a popular dining destination.Returning for a second year of participation in The Ritz-Carlton/Lufthansa Collaboration are the Denver and Battery Park properties. Menus with the hearty fare associated with the Rocky Mountains will be featured in January/February and September/October 2011. The Battery Park creations from Chef Sorci will be available on board May-June 2011.www.lufthansa.comlast_img read more

Cyprus lags on organ donation

first_imgCyprus is last in Europe when it comes to organ donation per capita in the EU, MPs heard on Thursday during a meeting of the House health committee.According to what Akel MP Eleni Mavrou in Cyprus organ donors clock in at 6.5 per million inhabitants while in Europe this figure rises to 20 per million.The committee was discussing a law amendment to ensure that someone who signed up for organ donation when they were alive, cannot have their will overturned by relatives upon death.The committee is also discussing a draft bill from Akel so that everyone who turns 18 can be considered an organ donor unless they specifically state otherwise.“In this way, the great lack of post-mortem organ donation will be alleviated,” said Mavrou, adding that one donor can save up to eight lives and help another 100 people.“With this in mind, we believe that the state must now move decisively. Currently, only about 1,700 donors are enrolled on the registry. The average is 6.5 donors per million population compared with 20 donors per million population, which is the average in Europe,” Mavrou said.She said most European countries have adopted regulations similar to the Akel draft, with positive results. “We believe that we must move decisively in Cyprus too because it is a matter of life, it is a matter of people, it is a matter of social sensitivity.”You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
