In the news today Nov 5

first_imgSix stories in the news for Monday, Nov. 5———CASE OF ALLEGED SERIAL KILLER DUE IN ONTARIO SUPERIOR COURTThe case of the man accused of killing eight men with ties to Toronto’s gay village is due in court today. Bruce McArthur is expected to make his first appearance in Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice on eight charges of first-degree murder. Police arrested the 67-year-old self-employed landscaper last January, and last month McArthur was ordered to stand trial after he waived his right to a preliminary hearing. Several funerals for McArthur’s alleged victims took place last week after Toronto police released the remains of the men to their families.———TRUDEAU LIBERALS TO UNVEIL ANTI-POVERTY LAWThe federal Liberals are set to enshrine into law a plan to lift more than two million people out of poverty. The government notified MPs before the weekend that it planned to introduce anti-poverty legislation as early as today that will, for the first time, set an official poverty line for the country. The government’s strategy sets reduction targets of 20 per cent from 2015 levels by 2020 and a 50 per cent drop by 2030. Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos is expected to outline the new law to a group of anti-poverty activists.———TRADE DEAL ANGER PUTS LIBERAL MP IN TOUGH SPOTThe newly struck North American trade agreement will let more American dairy products into Canada and, while it has yet to be ratified, it’s already putting at least one Liberal MP in an awkward spot. A couple of weeks ago at a rally in his Shefford, Que., riding Pierre Breton used some theatrics to offer support to farmers protesting his government’s trade policy. On a small stage in Granby, Que., Breton took a mouthful of American milk, then spat it on the ground in front of a cheering crowd of about 300 farmers.———CUPW LAUNCHES NEW ROUND OF ROTATING STRIKESThe Canadian Union of Postal Workers has launched a new round of rotating strikes in Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador. The walkouts began either last night or first thing this morning. Canada Post says the strikes have now impacted operations in more than 70 communities across the country causing backlogs that could delay mail delivery to its customers for several days. The two sides have been unable to reach new collective agreements for two bargaining units after 10 months of negotiations.———OLYMPIANS TO TOUT CALGARY BID AT RALLYA rally planned for today in favour of a Calgary bid for the 2026 Olympics will feature some familiar faces from the last time the city held the Games. British ski-jumper Michael Edwards — better known as Eddie the Eagle — and 1988 mascots Hidy and Howdy are to be at a downtown convention centre for the event. Canadian Olympians expected to attend include gold-medal sprinter Donovan Bailey and multi-medal-winning hockey player Cassie Campbell-Pascall. The rally comes a week before a plebiscite on whether Calgary should bid for the 2026 Games.———RESEARCHER WARNS CANADIAN LIFE EXPECTANCY COULD FALL LIKE IN U.S.A paper published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal suggests life expectancy in Canada could be threatened by the same factors that are causing it to fall in the United States. Jurgen Rehm of Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health says life expectancy in the U.S. has begun to decline slightly, due mainly to so called “deaths of despair” resulting from drug overdoses, suicide, or alcohol abuse. And he suggests a similar trend is taking hold in Canada, though to a much lesser degree.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz gives a speech to the Canada-U.K. Chamber of Commerce in London.— Matthew Vincent Raymond, accused of killing four people including two city police officers, is due back in Fredericton court.— Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan hosts annual candlelight tribute for fallen soldiers.— Ribbon-cutting ceremony in Toronto for HXouse, a program that supports artists and entrepreneurs in the arts, fashion, music industries.— Franco-Canadian roundtable in Edmonton on the impact of climate change on the Arctic Ocean.— Inauguration of new Vancouver mayor and councillors.———last_img read more

NBC Launches Female Forward Initiative To Train Hire Women Episodic Directors

first_imgAdvertisement Following a broadcast pilot season, in which no NBC pilots were helmed by a female director, NBC is stepping up its efforts to employ more female episodic directors with a new annual initiative, “Female Forward.” It is spearheaded by NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke, who made the announcement during the network’s portion of the TCA summer press tour, in partnership with top TV director Lesli Linka Glatter (Mad Men, Homeland). The new program will provide ten female directors with the opportunity to shadow up to three episodes of an NBC series, followed by an in-season commitment to direct at least one episode of the series she shadows. “Female Forward” will begin with the 2018-19 season on 10 NBC series with the intent of expanding the number of directors and shows in subsequent years. The goal is to achieve gender parity among scripted series directors across the network.“There’s a huge drought of female directors and females across the board in our business,” Salke said. “And we were really determined, after pilot season and after staffing directors for the first season, to do something actionable about that finally. It’s an honor to have a partner and advocate in the amazing Lesli Linka Glatter, who shares these ideals with us and has passionately acted as a mentor to other women throughout her career.”READ MORE Login/Register With: Twitter Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebooklast_img read more

Closing Bell TSX closes higher traders look to Fed meeting for clues

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed higher Monday as traders bought into stocks beaten down in a string of recent declines while hoping for more clarity from the U.S. Federal Reserve on whether it might start to ease up on stimulus measures.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 12,288.90 +101.54 0.83%S&P 500 — 3,452.13 +28.57 0.83%Dow — 15,179.85 +109.67 0.73%Nasdaq — 1,639.04 +12.31 0.76%The S&P/TSX composite index finished up 101.53 points at 12,288.9.The Canadian dollar was down 0.08 of a cent at 98.26 cents US.U.S. indexes also closed positive but well off the highs of the session after a published report a day before the start of a two-day Fed meeting said the central bank will indeed indicate a tapering off of its bond purchases.The Dow Jones industrials backed off from a gain of 192 points to close up 109.67 points at 15,179.85. Gains started to fade after the Financial Times said Fed chairman Ben Bernanke will use a news conference Wednesday to signal the bank will start to cut back on its US$85 billion of bond purchases each month.The Nasdaq climbed 28.58 points to 3,452.13 and the S&P 500 was ahead 12.31 points to 1,639.04.Markets have been volatile since late May when Bernanke first mentioned that the Fed would consider cutting back on the bond purchases if economic data — particularly job growth — improved. Triple-digit swings on markets have become almost commonplace.But the stimulus measures, known as quantitative easing, have been popular as they have kept interest and bond yields low and kept a rally going on stock markets practically non-stop since late last year.Craig Fehr, Canadian markets specialist at Edward Jones in St. Louis, observed that there has been a growing sense that the Fed will move slowly when it withdraws stimulus.“I think the market is starting to warm up to the idea that the tapering is a very deliberate word — there’s going to be a slow, wind-down of monetary policy that is not sustainable,” Fehr said.Speculation on the Fed tapering its bond purchases has depressed equity markets and markets in Toronto and New York retreated more than one% last week. At the same time, bond yields have been rising, pushing mortgage rates higher. And that has raised worries that rising rates could derail the recovery in the housing sector.Investors were encouraged by data Monday showing that most U.S. homebuilders were optimistic about home sales in May.And the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index released Monday leaped to 52 this month from 44 in May. The index hasn’t been that high since April 2006, just before the housing market collapsed.In corporate news, Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (TSX:BAM.A) is selling its Longview forestry assets in the U.S. Pacific Northwest through deals totalling nearly $3.7 billion. Weyerhaeuser Co.

HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) rose 10 cents to C$7.81.Financials also provided lift with Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) up 30 cents to $16.03.The telecom sector was also higher following some steep losses. Interest rate sensitive sectors such as real estate, telecoms and utilities have been punished lately as speculation about cutting back on the QE program has had the effect of pushing U.S. Treasury yields sharply higher.The sector was also pressured after Ottawa quashed the idea that big telecoms could take over the spectrum of smaller players. Federal Industry Minister Christian Paradis said current rules would stand, leading Telus Corp. (TSX:T) to abandon its plan to buy Mobilicity.On Monday, the component was ahead 0.27% and Telus advanced 21 cents to $34.93.August bullion fell $4.50 to US$1,383.10 an ounce and the gold sector was also up about 0.27%.

The employment balance also fell.“Overall, the rise in sentiment on the headline balance is encouraging,” said CIBC senior economist Andrew Grantham.“But we will need to see firm indicators of orders and shipments improving as well to say that U.S. manufacturing has really turned a corner.”Here’s what investors were watching today: New York Times’ Paul Krugman warns Canada vulnerable to a ‘big deleveraging shock’A look ahead at the Fed rate announcementON DECK WEDNESDAYECONOMICS NEWSUNITED STATES8:30 p.m.Consumer Price Index (May): Economists expect 0.2% rise from the month before, 1.4% year over year Housing starts (May): Economists expect 11.4% rise from month before Building permits (May): Economists expect 3% decline from month before CORPORATE NEWSUNITED STATESAdobe Systems Q2 earnings: Analysts expect 34¢ a share read more

Disney axes Guardians director James Gunn over offensive tweets

Director James GunnSAN DIEGO, United States (AFP) — “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise director James Gunn has been axed from the third movie over a series of offensive messages posted on Twitter several years ago.The tweets, mainly from 2008 and 2011, joked about taboo topics such as rape and paedophilia.Disney, which owns the franchise as the parent company of Marvel Studios, sent AFP a statement confirming the studio was parting ways with one of its biggest stars.“The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him,” said Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios.Gunn has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and has drawn the ire of conservative critics, who went back through his timeline and dug up the tweets.Jack Posobiec of The Daily Caller and right-wing commentator Mike Cernovich are among those who unearthed the messages.“Many people who have followed my career know when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo,” Gunn wrote on Twitter after the offensive tweets resurfaced late Thursday.“As I have discussed publicly many times, as I’ve developed as a person, so has my work and my humour.”Gunn, who has deleted his account, described himself as a “very, very different” person than when he wrote the tweets, now focusing on love rather than anger.“My days saying something just because it’s shocking and trying to get a reaction are over,” he added.Gunn directed both “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, and was planning to head to San Diego’s huge annual Comic-Con fan convention this week with a secret film project that he had teased on Instagram.“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is due out in 2020.

GECOM at no time can refuse to respect the Constitution of Guyana, so the main culprit behind the deliberate delay of elections is solely David Granger.David Granger, while addressing the staff at the Office of the Presidency, publicly stated that whatever the outcome of the courts is he would respect the decisions. Unfortunately, we can only have General Elections if there is a dissolution of Parliament by the President, in accordance with the Constitution. Besides that, we are quickly approaching a ‘constitutional crisis’.Regards,Zamal Hussain read more

ABB buys GE Industrial Solutions

first_imgABB has announced the acquisition of GE Industrial Solutions, GE’s global electrification solutions business. GE Industrial Solutions has deep customer relationships in more than 100 countries and an established installed base with strong roots in North America, ABB’s biggest market. GE Industrial Solutions is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, and has about 13,500 employees around the world. In 2016, GE Industrial Solutions had revenues of approximately $2.7 billion, with an operational EBITDA margin of approximately 8% and an operational EBITA margin of approximately 6%. ABB will acquire GE Industrial Solutions for $2.6 billion; the transaction will be operationally accretive in year one. ABB expects to realize approximately $200 million of annual cost synergies in year five, which will be key in bringing GE Industrial Solutions to peer performance. As part of the transaction and overall value creation, ABB and GE have agreed to establish a long-term, strategic supply relationship for GE Industrial Solutions products and ABB products that GE sources today. “With GE Industrial Solutions, we strengthen our Number 2 position in electrification globally and expand our access to the attractive North American market,” said ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer. “Combined with the long-term strategic supply relationship with GE, this transaction creates significant value for our shareholders.” He added: “Together with the GE Industrial Solutions team, we will execute our well-established plans in a disciplined way to bring this business as part of the global ABB family back to peer performance. With this next step of active portfolio management, we continue to shift ABB’s center of gravity, in line with our Next Level strategy, by strengthening competitiveness, mainly in the North American market, and lowering risk with an early-cycle business.”“This combination brings together two global businesses with a broad complement of electrical protection and distribution assets,” said John Flannery, CEO of GE. “ABB values our people, domain expertise, and our ability to operate in the segments where we have depth and experience. GE will also benefit through an expanded strategic supply relationship with ABB as the two companies work together.”GE Industrial Solutions will be integrated into ABB’s Electrification Products (EP) division, resulting in a unique global portfolio and very comprehensive offering for North American and global customers. They will benefit from ABB’s innovative technologies and the ABB AbilityTM digital offering coupled with GE Industrial Solutions’ complementary solutions and market access. Included in the acquisition is a long-term right to use the GE brand. ABB will retain the GE Industrial Solutions management team and build upon its experienced sales force. After closing, this transaction will have an initial dampening effect to EP’s operational EBITA margin. ABB commits to returning EP to its target margin corridor of 15-19% during 2020.Tarak Mehta, President of ABB’s EP division, said: “This acquisition strengthens our position as partner of choice for electrification globally and in North America. We look forward to working with GE Industrial Solutions’ and ABB’s customers and channel partners to create new opportunities in this highly attractive core market for our division. We have a clear integration plan to realize the synergies of this combination and to bring our combined business back into the target margin corridor during 2020.” ABB’s EP division delivers more than 1.5 million products to customers around the world every day through a global network of channel partners and end-customers.

Game of Thrones Writer Bran Stark Shares a Bond With Tyrion Lannister

first_img Game of Thrones’ third episode, also known as the major battle between Winterfell and the Night King’s army, is almost here. Before the big night, Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman discussed key highlights of Season 8, Episode 2 and why Bran Stark’s bond with Tyrion Lannister sets the stage for the show’s final season.On Saturday, Cogman spoke with HuffPost about Game of Thrones’ last season, including the significance of character relationships leading up to the Night King’s arrival. Sadly, some Iron Throne contenders might not live after the battle, however, every conversation counts leading up to this peak Season 8 moment.“What’s fun about this show is they all have these connections with each other, and Tyrion does have a connection with Bran. The first episode I ever wrote is when he presents him with that saddle, and I think he is intrigued by the Starks and fascinated by their story and indeed fascinated by stories in general,” Cogman told HuffPost. “He’s a student of history and I think him wanting to talk to Bran is about him trying to understand ― understand the breadth of everything that’s happened to all of these people.”Tyrion Lannister might have not had the best relationship with the Starks, however, at this point in the series, he wants to learn more about Bran Stark’s journey, and perhaps, find some answers for what’s to come for those at Winterfell.“Obviously, Bran’s had a very unique experience. I think it’s just about him wanting to know more,” Cogman added. “A mind needs a whetstone. I think that’s what that’s about.”Game of Thrones’ showrunners and writers have also emphasized the importance of connections, and how each character’s fate is related to the past, present, and future at this point. Especially in Season 8, Episode 2, where we witness major alliances, reunions, and apologies between some Iron Throne contenders who might not survive the epic showdown.“I kind of ripped my heart out of my chest and put it on the page for that episode. It was a wonderful opportunity [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] gave me. … The episode was a real chance to say goodbye to [the characters] and say goodbye to this incredible adventure I’ve been on,” Cogman explained. “So the fact that people are responding to it is very gratifying because it was arguably the biggest labor of love of the 11 scripts I wrote.”Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 premieres on Sunday, April 28 at 9 p.m. EST on HBO. ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… Stay on targetcenter_img More on‘Game of Thrones’ Director on Upcoming Battle: ‘This Is Survival Horror’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kristofer Hivju Hints an ‘Intense’ Battle Is ComingFirst Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 3 Photoslast_img read more

Russian River Scheduled To Open June 11th For The Season

first_imgLegal tackle in the Russian River area is a single-hook, artificial fly, with hook gap no larger than 3/8 inch. Most anglers use a bucktail streamer fly, such as a Russian River Coho Fly, with enough weight at least 18 inches ahead of the fly so that the hook travels close to the bottom of the river. Oftentimes, best success is early morning or late evening, when the sun is not directly shining on the river. Sockeye also tend to hug the bank, and long casts are not necessary. Good numbers of fish aren’t usually present until the last week of June, according to DF&G. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Russian River is scheduled to open on June 11th for the season. The Russian and Kenai River make up one of the most popular sport fishing spots in Alaska.center_img Fishing areas are managed between multiple different agencies who all work cooperatively to keep anglers informed of forecasts, and to ensure the areas are maintained and regulations followed.

Zomato starts placing advertisements on porn sites to boost business

first_imgAs the competition gets fierce in the online food ordering business, the Gurgaon-based Zomato has begun giving advertisements to some of the world’s top porn sites to boost its income.By doing so, Zomato has emerged as the first domestic consumer internet company to resort to such an advertising strategy.The main idea behind serving advertisements on porn websites is to attract customers who watch porn at night. Zomato expects the ads on porn sites to increase its food delivery business during late night hours in big cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru.Besides, the cost to advertise on porn sites is much cheaper than on Google AdWords and Facebook Ads.Zomato said the average cost per click (CPC) on porn sites would be “one-tenth of what it pays for Google AdWords and Facebook Ads.””The alternative seemed almost obvious when someone said ‘Hey we should try advertising on porn sites’, and then justified it with ‘look, people watch porn, and people get hungry, so stop judging me’,” Pramod Rao, senior vice-president of growth at Zomato, wrote in a blogpost dated December 15.Currently, Zomato is giving ads on porn sites such as Pornhub and XVideos on both mobile and desktop platforms from 11pm to 4am.”Advertising on porn websites makes sense commercially,” Business Standard quoted Harish Bijoor, a brand consultant, as saying.”We are not a brand that goes and advertises on billboards and does sustained TV campaigns. We do it in bursts and we have always had a hunch that porn might work out, or do very well, with our target audience,” Rao added.last_img read more

Baltimore Students to Study African Diaspora in Cuba

first_imgSharayna Christmas, Moriah Ray and Jasmine Hall work with Baltimore youth at Muse 360. (Courtesy photo)While youth in Baltimore are working summer-jobs or fending for themselves during the summer break, a group of students from Frederick Douglass High School will get an opportunity to study abroad in Cuba.The opportunity has been afforded to these youth by the Muse 360 Arts initiative in partnership with The African Diaspora Alliance, an initiative dedicated to enlightening Black youth about the African Diaspora in comparison to America. The group will take more than a dozen youth to Cuba.Muse 360, an organization that provides Baltimore youth with artistic training and experiences, has worked to educate students from Frederick Douglass for nearly a decade, introducing them to arts and culture from a Black perspective. Morgan State University graduate Sharayna Christmas spearheads the movement, incorporating music and dance into studies of the African Diaspora to challenge students to break out of their comfort zone. Alongside Christmas is Bashi Rose, who helps prepare curriculum for students dealing with African and African-American history and has introduced youth to various activities such as yoga.“We have eight principles of the program:  pride, individuality, perseverance, intelligence, growth, collectiveness, substance and passion,” Rose said.University of Maryland graduate Moriah Ray is the brainchild behind the African Diaspora Alliance. Jasmine Hall, a graduate of DePaul University in Chicago, has been friends with Ray since childhood. They studied in Cuba together.Seeing the plight of people of color across the world along with the problems in the United States forced the duo to create the African Diaspora Alliance, Ray said.“Let’s create a space where Black lives really do matter,” said Hall “that’s why we are here.”Despite lack of help from the city of Baltimore, the groups have managed to raise the money necessary to constantly travel abroad with students.Shakura Shird is a recent graduate of Frederick Douglass and will be attending Full Sail University in the fall.“It has helped me love myself, and given me a different outlook on my future on what I might do and made me look at Black people in general different,” she said.During the excursion, students will partake in courses for two weeks at Casa de Africa, attending lecturers on Afro-Cuban descent during their time in Havana, Cuba.last_img read more

first_img 2016-12-01 MirashaBrown December 1, 2016 598 Views DocMagic, Inc., a national provider of loan document preparation and comprehensive eMortgage services headquartered in Torrance, California, has announced the completion of the start to finish eClosing using its Total eClose solution system in Massachusetts.Total eClose’s all-encompassing system incorporates eSignature-enabled SMART Documents, World Wide Notary’s (WWN) eNotarization services to electronically notarize documents, MERS eRegistery access, a secure eVault, and Investor eDelivery to execute a seamless eClosing. The solution keeps track of progress by logging and storing all activity.Santander Bank played an integral role in the eClosing process by serving as the eWarehouse lender. Tim Anderson, Director of eServices at DocMagic, described the promptness of the eClosing process using Santander Bank. “We helped test and implement an eWarehouse process to eDeliver acceptance of the eNote to Santander Bank within seconds after the eClosing was completed. This is an industry-altering achievement.”DocMagic was selected as one of 12 participants in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) eClosing pilot project in 2014, which helped explore the benefits of digital mortgage technology. After the pilot was deemed a success, DocMagic continued to further develop and perfect its eClosing solution.Dominic Iannitti, President and CEO of DocMagic, discussed the process of digital closings and what they mean for the mortgage industry. “There are a few mortgage technology vendors that have been working to deliver an eClosing for some time now, but they have all fallen short in various ways,” he said. “Most of these solutions are merely hybrids that require certain documents to be executed on paper and often force lenders to maintain numerous complex integrations. With Total eClose, however, you work with a single vendor, on a single platform, and clients need to only access DocMagic or the company’s SmartCLOSE system to seamlessly and compliantly fulfill paperless closing.” in Headlines, Newscenter_img DocMagic Announces First Start to Finish Paperless Digital eClosing Sharelast_img read more
