Canada hoping to solve US tariff dispute by G20 meetings at months

first_imgWASHINGTON — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is setting his sights on the end of the month as the next target date for reaching a trade-and-tariff detente with the United States.All three countries are expected to take part in a signing ceremony for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement during the two-day G20 summit, which gets underway Nov. 30 in Buenos Aires — although Canada has warned it will be a low-key, low-level affair if steel and aluminum tariffs are still in place.There’s still time to change that, Trudeau suggested Monday during a news conference in Paris.“I absolutely brought it up,” Trudeau said of his discussions with U.S. President Donald Trump during a dinner Friday organized by French President Emmanuel Macron.One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to discuss details of a private meeting, said the two leaders had a good exchange on tariffs that included Trudeau making clear to the president the tariffs are hurting consumers and producers on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.“The issue of steel and aluminum tariffs continues to be a concern to Canadians, like it is of concern to many American citizens and companies,” Trudeau said.  “This is something that, as I’ve said before and as I related to President Trump, I hope we’re able to solve by the time we meet each other in the G20 in Argentina.”David MacNaughton, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., said in an interview last week that some high-level talks on the tariff issue have taken place, and that he has extended an invitation to U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer to get formal negotiations back underway.Insiders say the U.S. has been demanding quotas be imposed on Canadian exports, something Ottawa has made clear is a non-starter.MacNaughton and Trudeau have both indicated that if a signing ceremony does take place soon, it won’t include high-level dignitaries like the prime minister or Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland if the tariffs — 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum — remain in place.On the Mexican side, however, there’s an expectation negotiators there are poised to agree to quotas in order to get the deal signed before Dec. 1, which is when incoming president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s new administration could inject an unwelcome element of uncertainty.Resolving the tariff issue with Mexico is the more pressing priority for the U.S., said Dan Ujczo, a trade lawyer and partner with Ohio-based Dickinson Wright.“The actual issue is to ensure that there’s nothing that’s going to stop Mexico from signing this deal before Dec. 1, and giving relief to farm country in the U.S. to Mexico’s retaliatory tariffs,” Ujczo said.“I think Canada’s an afterthought for the U.S. right now in this process.” James McCarten, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Fans in Canada and abroad mourn and reflect as Kawhi Leonard leaves

first_imgTORONTO — Though his jersey may have said Toronto, Raptors fans across the country — and beyond — are in mourning after star player Kawhi Leonard opted to leave Canada’s only NBA team.The two-time NBA Finals MVP, who joined Toronto’s team just a year ago when he was traded by the San Antonio Spurs, has reportedly signed with the LA Clippers after carrying the Raptors to the NBA Championship for the first time in franchise history last month.William Om, a 27-year-old Raptors fan from Montreal, said it’s painful to see an elite player come to Canada only to leave after such a brief period.“It hurts everybody, because of course we want to keep the best players,” he said in a phone interview.But he said Leonard has won over his allegiance, regardless of where he takes his talents. In fact, Om said he’s already ordered a Clippers jersey with Leonard’s name on the back.“What happened in Toronto, the way he played and everything, made me admire him a little more,” he said. “No matter where he goes I’ll support him as a Clipper.”But while some fans such as Om are grateful for Leonard’s efforts — #ThankYouKawhi was trending on Twitter Saturday after news of his departure broke — others are not so generous.Andrew Ostasz, 33, of Hamilton said he was “disgusted” with the way Leonard left the team.“The Raptors brought him here to give him every chance to succeed … basically turned him into the top three player in the league,” Ostasz said.That sentiment was echoed by Manuel Lutz, who would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night to watch the Raptors play from his home in southern Germany.“As I heard it, I was furious. How could he do that?” the 40-year-old fan said.But Lutz said his heart has softened in the time since the news came out. He now sees that it’s best to let Leonard go.“There is a saying in Germany, ‘do not keep travellers from travelling’, and that’s the way I see the position right now,” he said.As the acceptance begins to settle in, fans are turning their attention to all that Leonard brought to the Raptors in his short time in Toronto.“I never thought this would happen in my lifetime. I never thought I’d see Toronto win a championship,” said Corey West, 38, of Halifax.“You can’t really be mad because he gave you the one thing that we wanted,” West said. “It shouldn’t tarnish his legacy because he did the one thing no one else really could and that was to lead us to a championship — So I think he should be remembered fondly.”—With files from Olivia Blackmore in Halifax, Morgan Lowrie in Montreal and Brenna Owen in Vancouver.Lidia Abraha, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Caledonia Mining lines up expansion of gold output from Zimbabwe

first_imgThe New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has approved the listing of Caledonia Mining Corp’s common shares on the NYSE American stock exchange. Steve Curtis, CEO, stated “This listing for the company on the NYSE American is another significant step for Caledonia which joins some of the world’s best-known gold and precious metals companies with a listing on this prestigious US exchange. This further step in the development of Caledonia’s corporate status has taken place against the backdrop of continued progress on our major operational development projects, principally the sinking of the Central Shaft at the Blanket mine in Zimbabwe.“The Central Shaft, which is being funded from Blanket’s internal resources, is expected to fundamentally change the nature of Blanket’s operations by improving operating efficiencies and providing access to deeper levels for exploration, development and production. Completion of the Central Shaft remains on schedule for the fourth quarter of 2018.“ The listing on the NYSE American is intended to provide the company with greater access to US institutional and retail investors which in turn is hoped will result in better overall trading liquidity, a lower cost of capital and other benefits for Caledonia and its shareholders”.Following the implementation of indigenisation in Zimbabwe in September 2012, Caledonia’s primary asset is a 49% interest in the operating Blanket gold mine. Blanket plans to increase production from 50,351 oz in 2016 to approximately 80,000 oz in 2021.last_img read more

GOCMV original minutes for all to see

first_imgThe very first minutes written in 1897 by members of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GOCMV) have been released digitally for the community to see in a historical way to make the 114th anniversary of the GOCMV on 27 August.General Secretary of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GOCMV) Costas Marcos took on the auspicious task of digitising the very first minutes of the GOCMV. for the past six months. He did this because he felt the minuters were the “most important part of the history of GOCMV but not only that but the broader Greek community”. ” Looking at the minutes time after time I realised the incredible details that excised within the minutes,” Marcos told Neos Kosmos. Through the minutes, the community is able to find their ancestors, see the various philanthropic contributions the community made and also the contributions members made to the war efforts in Greece. The minutes also give you a clear understanding in the establishment of the GOCMV. These rare and historic documents encapsulate the very essence of the Greek cutlural heritage and the history of Greek migration to Victoria. By digitising these minutes, the GOCMV is able to preserve and promote them for benefit of today’s and future generations. “From an aesthetic point of view it’s an amazing piece of work they are hand-written by fountain pen,” said Marcos. “I don’t know of any particular documents like that from the early period of Greek migration.” As part of this project, Marcos aims to find out detailed information of the first 100 contributors to the churt that are documents in the minutes. “There are about 120 members I have identified and I have found at least 85 per cent of their background – where they came from and what year they came to Australia.”To view the minutes visit greekcommunity.com.au Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Les rhinocéros pourraient disparaître dAfrique du Sud dans quatre ans

first_imgLes rhinocéros pourraient disparaître d’Afrique du Sud dans quatre ansDans quatre ans, les rhinocéros pourraient avoir totalement disparu d’Afrique du Sud. Un scénario inéluctable si le pays ne parvient pas à lutter plus efficacement contre le braconnage intensif de l’espèce menacée Si le braconnage continue de décimer les rhinocéros à son rythme actuel, l’espèce aura disparu d’Afrique du Sud d’ici quatre ans, alerte Karen Trendler. Surnommée “Maman rhino” après avoir pris soin de 200 petits rhinos à Pretoria, cette spécialiste sud-africaine des soins vétérinaires d’urgence ouvrira bientôt les portes d’un orphelinat pour accueillir les bébés dont les mères ont été tuées. Elle mène en ce moment une campagne pour récolter des fonds en faveur de cet orphelinat.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Je déteste être alarmiste ou envisager le pire, mais si le braconnage continue à ce rythme, dans les prochains mois, la population de rhinocéros va baisser et nous assisterons à son extinction, certains disent en 2015″, rappelle-t-elle à l’AFP. “Nous en sommes seulement aux trois premiers mois de l’année, et il y a déjà 109 tués. Cela nous met tous tellement en colère”, explique Karen Trendler. Le braconnage n’a cessé de s’intensifier ces dernières années. Il est de plus en plus organisé. Récemment, quatre braconniers infiltrés dans le parc national Kruger, la plus grande réserve animalière d’Afrique du Sud, ont été arrêtés. Le pays amplifie sa lutte, en déployant des centaines de soldats notamment. Mais la demande en cornes de rhinocéros est de plus en plus importante. “Avec la croissance économique en Asie, les gens ont plus d’argent pour acheter des soins de médecine traditionnelle et la croyance dans les vertus de la corne contre le cancer est malheureusement en vogue”, déplore Karen Trendler. “Il faut ajouter à ça l’aspect le plus sinistre de l’affaire qui consiste à faire des stocks en prévision de l’extinction de l’espèce, ou du moment où la population de rhinocéros chutera faisant monter le prix des cornes”, explique-t-elle.Le refuge qu’elle s’apprête à créer doit être installé dans la réserve de Mokopane, dans le Limpopo au nord du pays. Il sera doté d’une unité de soins intensifs, de couveuses, et sera surveillé par des caméras. Une fois soignés et suffisamment forts pour reprendre leur liberté, les petits rhinocéros retrouveront la vie sauvage.Le 14 mars 2012 à 20:23 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

What Shape Do You See in the Orion Nebula

first_img What do you see in the image above?Some claim it’s a dark cat, front paws outstretched, nose gleaming white. I, however, can’t visualize anything but a fox-like animal, running with its mouth open and vibrant eye on the lookout.(In fact, it appears to me as Jack’s ghost-dog Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas—but with a luminous peeper instead of glowing pumpkin nose.)There is no right answer: The unknowable shape is actually a dark nebula in the constellation of Orion, snapped by the European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite.Invisible to the naked eye, this cloud of gas and dust features a star cluster (the cat’s nose fox’s eye) near the famous Orion Nebula—one of the most heavily studied cosmic targets in the night sky.The powerful Gaia satellite, launched in 2013, has been charting more than a billion stars to “unprecedented accuracy,” according to the ESA. Even in the blackest areas of firmament, Gaia can capture information valuable to astronomers studying interstellar material that blocks starlight.“It is in these dark clouds of gas and dust that new generations of stars come to life,” the agency said.Two years ago, Gaia’s first data release revealed the position of more than a billion stars, as well as the distance and motions of about 2 million stars—information used to study the most nearby regions of star formation.Cosmologists, meanwhile, anxiously await the next dump, planned for April 25, which will include distance and motions for the full sample of stars.“With the new data, it will be possible to investigate in great detail regions that are much farther away, like the Orion star-forming complex, located some 1,500 light-years from us,” the European Space Agency explained.Finding patterns in dark nebulae—aka “dark cloud constellations”—is an astronomical pastime, a tradition of various cultures, from South America to Australia.

David Luiz hails Chelsea spirit

first_imgChelsea defender David Luiz has praised Chelsea’s fighting spirit in Saturday’s thrilling 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.Despite an impressive first-half performance where Chelsea took the lead thanks to Toni Rudiger’s header and David Luiz believes more goals before the interval could have helped the home side.Manchester United fought back in the second half to take the lead, but a late Ross Barkley goal gave each side a point.“We tried to win from the beginning of the game,” Luiz told Chelsea FC website.“We controlled the game with possession, trying to create some space to score some goals. They came with a plan just to defend and play on the counter-attack.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I think in the first half it was just us who played. We could have done better by scoring the second goal to kill the game, but it is never easy to win in the Premier League, especially against a big opponent.“It gave them a chance because we had only scored one goal and in the second half they came and scored a lucky goal with the ball touching a player and bouncing about. After they scored they had a bit more confidence, and it was a great game. This is the Premier League against fantastic teams, so we have to keep going and try to work hard.“Even though we were 2-1 down, we kept trying to score the equaliser and we did that in the end so I think the spirit was amazing. This was a big game against a big club, and it is always like this. We have to realise we had amazing spirit to try and score the second goal and we did that in the end.“We are happy we have gone this many games without losing, but we are keeping on working hard to try and improve our team because it is just the beginning.”last_img read more

Don Young raises concerns over AELP purchase

first_imgA Canadian power company has refiled its application to finish its acquisition of Juneau’s power company.Alaska Congressman Don Young has written to express his concern.Listen nowThe latest filing has already attracted at least two critical comments. One of those is a letter from Congressman Young.The Republican representative wants assurances that the Snettisham Hydro Complex — which was was built by the federal government in the 1970s and supplies the lion’s share of Juneau’s electricity — doesn’t pass into foreign ownership.“I can insure (sic) you that it was never Congress’ intent that this asset be transferred for the potential profiteering by Canadian government interests,” Young wrote.The province of Ontario holds a 49.9 percent stake in Hydro One.The state owns Snettisham, but its upkeep is the responsibility of Juneau-based Alaska Electric Light and Power.AEL&P buys all the power Snettisham produces under a 1998 agreement. It also has an option to purchase the hydroelectric complex at any time. That option could pass to Hydro One once it completes its takeover of AEL&P’s parent corporation Avista of Spokane.Young wrote that he doesn’t oppose the acquisition, but wants assurances that the hydro complex will remain in the hands of the state or local owners.Young hinted at Congressional action if those assurances aren’t made. Young’s office declined further comment.State regulators rejected Hydro One’s previous application on a technicality. That filing received more than 30 comments, most of them critical of the deal.The Juneau Assembly is watching the process closely.Earlier this year, the Assembly openly floated the idea making a bid for the power company, But Hydro One says AEL&P is not for sale.The latest filing with the Regulatory Commission of Alaska reopens the public comment period through Dec. 21.last_img read more

first_imgGwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk tied the knot in 2018 Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesAcademy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been hit by reports that her marriage with Brad Falchuk is on the rocks. The Iron Man actress had tied the knot with the American Horror Story co-producer in September 2018.According to a report in Radar Online,  the couple got into a heated argument while leaving a Los Angeles restaurant on 31 March. A source said: “It looked like they were at each other’s throats.””Gwyneth can be a lot to handle. She’s used to getting her own way in business with her lifestyle brand, Goop, and as a movie star,” the insider added. “But marriage is a whole different story. Brad thinks her ideas are a little wacky.”Adding on, the website claims that Brad was not happy that she invited her former husband, Chris Martin to their honeymoon.

Now he’s already feeling that even two might be a crowd!”Gwyneth met Brad back in 2014 on the set of Glee, when she guest starred as substitute teacher Holly Holliday.

You want only what is for the highest good. You always help me see what I can’t. I am so happy you were born @bradfalchuk I love you so much.”last_img read more

Lalit Modi case Cong ups ante on unanswered questions

first_imgSenior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, a day after Millennium Post story – ‘Questions we need to ask but govt won’t answer’ – said there were still many questions the incumbent government needs to answer. “Firstly, the Prime Minister who tweets at the drop of his hat and makes a statement on every issue is silent! Nation demands explanation from the Prime Minister. Would he oblige? Is there a file in the Foreign Ministry on the Lalit Modi’s issue? Was Sushma Swaraj aware that he is under blue-corner notice? Did she know that he is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate ?” Singh questioned. Also Read – Need to understand why law graduate’s natural choice is not legal profession: CJIRaising the issue of Lalit Modi’s antecedents, Singh said: “Lalit Modi was indicted by a BCCI committee, headed by Mr Arun Jaitley, which had proved that he was rigging the bidding process in IPL to help a person who is known for his proximity to Narendra Modi. My hunch is (I maybe wrong) that the Prime Minister or Amit Shah has struck a deal with Lalit Modi to take care of both Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje Scindia. It is almost certain that all the leaks were by Lalit Modi himself.” Also Read – Health remains key challenge in India’s development: KovindAttacking Sushma Swaraj, he said, “She has violated the oath that she had taken as the minister in this government – not to favour anyone – and she has an obligation to abide by the rules of business in the Government of India. Every decision the minister takes has to be processed by the ministry, which does due diligence and puts up the case to the Minister. In this case, when the person whom she is obliging is a fugitive who has 16 cases pending cases pending against him and ED investigating him under prevention of money-laundering why did she not consult Finance Ministry before recommending his case? Although I have the greatest regard for Ms Sushma Swaraj, in this case, she has acted most unwisely and against all norms and ethics expected from a such a senior and experienced political leader. She has no other option but to resign.” “As far as Vasundhara Raje is concerned her statement is totally unpardonable and can be defined as anti-national .Both have no other option but to resign. I also would like to remind a similar case of Madhav Singh Solanki when he handed an envelope to Swiss Authorities in 1992 and he had to resign. But BJP is a party with difference which hasdifferent set of standards one for others and another when it comes to them,” he added.The Congress plans to raise this issue in Parliament as well, he said, “We certainly plan to raise this issue in next session of Parliament, if this government takes no action against the two leaders – Swaraj and Raje.”While his party colleague Jairam Ramesh while briefing the media in Delhi said, “Since June 14th, the Congress has been raising pertinent and pointed questions on the Lalit Modi affair that has engulfed the Prime Minister, the External Affairs Minister and the Chief Minister of Rajasthan. A total of 34 questions have been asked in the last four days by P Chidambaram, Anand Sharma and Randeep Surjewala. Not one question has been answered by the Prime Minister, by the External Affairs Minister, the Chief Minister of Rajasthan and by the Spokespersons of the BJP including its President. The silence is deafening and is definite proof that the BJP topmost leadership has many things to hide.”“This is no longer a question of impropriety. This is now an issue of a deep nexus between a proclaimed offender against whom the Enforcement Directorate has cases pending and the PM, the EAM, the Rajasthan CM and the BJP President. The Lalit Modi-Gautam Adani nexus has also been clearly established by the documents now in the public domain.last_img read more

VIDEO New Cavs PG Collin Sexton told Penny Hardaway his son was

first_imgCollin Sexton is known as the “Young Bull” because he’s ultra competitive and doesn’t back down. Even in high school, the #8 pick in the draft wasn’t afraid of going at anyone, even when that person was a former NBA all-star point guard.During a 2016 game between Sexton’s Pebblebrook High School and a Memphis East team coached by former NBA star Penny Hardaway at the City of Palms Classic, Young Bull took exception to a foul and proceeded to tell Penny that his son – an East player – was “trash,” as he stepped to the free throw line.Memphis East ended up winning the game 76-74, so Penny got the last laugh. Some will say this overly cocky, some will say it shows the competitive streak you want in an NBA point guard. You be the judge.h/t Harry Lyles, Jr.last_img

Dells Latest Problem Computers That Smell Like Cat Urine

first_imgAs the drama between Dell and activist investor Carl Icahn has subsided, the computer company has a new problem on its hands: cat urine. Or to be clear, an odor reminiscent of cat urine.Back in June, users starting speaking up on a Dell support forum about an odd smell coming from their 6430u laptops. People wrote in stating they believed their cat had literally sprayed their laptop. One owner went so far to have his cat put down in order to get rid of the smell and is now asking Dell to pay legal fees, because his wife left him after she found out (I would have, too). Related: Billionaire Investor Carl Icahn Drops Campaign to Derail Dell’s Takeover BidBelow are a few snippets of what people are saying about this smell:This consumer almost went that far but fortunately, didn’t.Poor kitten.Our feline friends are not to blame for this smell. Dell has issued a statement reassuring people the smell is not a health hazard nor is attributed to cat urine. The company blames a new manufacturing process and is asking people to send back their computer to get replacement parts. When I reached out to a Dell senior technical consultant known as SteveB on Twitter to see if there was any updates, he replied, “We do have a root cause and the problem is fixed. I hope to post details in the Dell forums this week or next at the latest.”  Related: 3 Decades of Dell: From Dorm Room Inspiration to Multi-Billion Dollar AcquisitionFor now, here is a full statement he published on the forum earlier this month. That said, at least one person thought Dell was onto something. 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
