CN Rail line reopened after mudslide west of Chetwynd

first_imgCHETWYND, B.C. – CN Rail has reopened its rail line 40 kilometres west of Chetwynd after a mudslide derailed one of its freight trains last week.The mudslide occurred sometime overnight between Thursday and Friday, and pushed the train’s two lead locomotives off the track. No one was injured in the derailment, and the locomotives were not tipped onto their sides, meaning there were no fluids spilled and no damage to the environment.CN spokesperson Kate Fenske said that crews worked through the weekend to clear the mud and debris that had covered the rail line. She added that the rail line between Chetwynd and Prince George has since completely reopened.last_img

Mali hails Moroccan policy of massive regularization of illegal immigrants

Rabat  –  Minister of Malians Abroad Abdrahmane Sylla hailed the Moroccan policy of massive regularization of illegal immigrants.“I welcome Moroccan authorities’ efforts to control flows of illegal immigrants mainly through the operation of massive regularization of illegal immigrants living in the Kingdom,” Sylla told the press following a meeting Tuesday in Rabat with minister-delegate of the Interior Charki Draiss.Malian minister highlighted the Moroccan new migration policy aimed at a better and more humanitarian management of this phenomenon. He also recalled King Mohammed VI’s visits to Mali which contributed to the strengthening of the two countries relationships.

US tariffs hike delay draws cautious welcome boosts shares

BEIJING — President Donald Trump’s decision to extend a deadline to escalate tariffs on Chinese imports has raised cautious optimism in China and boosted share prices across Asia.The Shanghai Composite index jumped 4.9 per cent on Monday to its highest level since May 2018 after Trump said “substantial progress” was made in weekend talks between the two countries regarding their dispute over China’s technology policies.Trump said, “I will be delaying the U.S. increase in tariffs now scheduled for March 1.” He also said that if negotiations progress, he will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida resort to finalize an agreement.The vice-president of the U.S.-China Business Council, Jake Parker, said Trump’s announcement was a “positive signal.”Others in Beijing had mixed feelings, but welcomed the news.The Associated Press read more

Dressbarn expects to have all its stores shut in early 2020

NEW YORK — Dressbarn says it expects to have all its 650 stores closed in the first half of 2020.The women’s clothing chain announced earlier this week that it was shutting all its stores but hadn’t given a timeline for the closures until Thursday.Dressbarn’s owner, Ascena Retail Group Inc., has said it wants to focus on its other brands, such as Ann Taylor and Lane Bryant. An executive said Dressbarn wasn’t profitable enough.Ascena said in a regulatory filing that that it couldn’t yet determine how much Dressbarn’s closure would cost the Mahwah, New Jersey-based company.Dressbarn, which has been selling women’s clothing for nearly 60 years, employs about 6,800 people.Joseph Pisani, The Associated Press

Ottawa deficit for April May rises to 27billion as expenditures increase

OTTAWA — Ottawa’s finances got off to a rocky start in the current fiscal year, posting a $2.7-billion deficit that was nearly $1-billion more compared to the same period last year.The shortfall was larger than the $1.8-billion deficit recorded in the April and May period a year ago, the Finance Department reported Friday.The 2012-13 fiscal year ended with an estimated $25.9-billion shortfall for the government — the first year Ottawa failed to make significant progress in reducing its deficit since the recession.This year, the government is projecting an $18.7-billion negative balance, although the first two months represents a setback in reaching that goal.Still, analysts warn against reading too much into the early balance sheet reports of government revenues and expenditures because they tend to be lumpy and subject to revisions.“The year-to-date deficit figures do not give us much to hang our hats on when it comes to annual deficit forecasting,” explained TD Bank economist Sonya Gulati.“In addition, we do not have a sufficient amount of economic indicators for the second quarter to gauge whether 2013 government planning assumptions remain on point.”The Canadian economy outperformed expectations in the first quarter with a 2.5% advance, but forecasting houses are at odds about what occurred in the second quarter, the April-June period encompassed by Friday’s report.The Bank of Canada has set down a low-ball figure of one per cent, while many economists are anticipating a number closer to two based on the strong 1.9% monthly increase in retail spending in May, and stronger employment growth.Gulati said a better indicator about where the government stands will come later this summer when it closes the books on the 2012-13 period.Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is counting on an improved economy going forward, continued low interest rates, and ongoing government restraint to take major chunks out of the deficit figure starting this year, resulting in a balanced budget for the 2015-16 fiscal period, only two years away.In Friday’s report, the government said the deficit for April was a mere 0.3 billion but May brought a US$2.4-billion shortfall.For the two months combined, revenues rose slightly from last year by US$557-million to US$41.8-billion, with gains in personal and corporate tax receipts undercut by a fall-off in revenues from GST taxes and excise and duties receipts.Meanwhile, program spending rose by US$1.35-billion to US$39.2-billion, mainly reflecting higher transfer payments to residents and provinces.As well, the cost of servicing the national debt rose US$106-million to US$5.4-billion during the two months from last year.Combined total spending was up 3.4% relative to last year, a pace of growth that is unlikely to be sustained.The finance ministry noted it had altered how it calculates monthly tax revenues to better align them to the methodology used in the annual public accounts, which had the effect of increasing last year’s April-May deficit from what was originally reported. The change in methodology will have no impact on the final fiscal numbers, the department added. read more

UN official praises Peru for promoting rights of internally displaced

Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Representative on IDPs, Francis M. Deng, hailed President Alejandro Toledo and the Congress of Peru, where an estimated 600,000 people, mostly from indigenous communities, were displaced during the 1980s and 1990s in fighting between the government and rebel forces of the Shining Path and the Tupac Amaru Resistance Movement. While the overwhelming majority have returned home or settled permanently elsewhere, many of those displaced still feel the lingering trauma, stigmatization, impoverishment and other negative effects of their ordeal. Mr. Deng noted that, by promulgating the new law, Peru joined a growing number of States affected by internal displacement that are actively incorporating international humanitarian and human rights standards into domestic legal structures, building on the UN’s Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement, the most widely recognized statement of international norms in this area. The Representative also voiced hope that the implementation of the law would help heal the wounds still open from the many years of conflict and serve to prevent new injustices in the future. read more

MTS Sensors TSeries linear position sensors for hazardous environments

first_imgMTS Sensors, a division of MTS Systems Corporation, has launched the new T-Series of magnetostrictive linear position sensors. These high resolution devices, which are based on the company’s proprietary Temposonics technology, are optimised for use in hazardous working environments, where they might be exposed to flames, caustic substances and potentially explosive atmospheres. They are the first linear positioning sensors in the industry to meet safety integrity level (SIL) 2 standards. In addition, they are fully compliant with ATEX and IECEx Zone 0/1, Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 and Zone 22 safety certifications covering the protection types “flameproof” and “increased safety.”T-Series devices are supplied in an all stainless steel design. Alternatively a highly corrosion-resistant stainless steel version is available. These devices can withstand shocks of up to 100 G, vibrational force of up to 15 G (for frequencies from 20 Hz to 2000 Hz). When operating at 60°C, their mean time to failure (MTTF) figure is 100 years and have an extensive operational temperature range covering -40°C to +85°C in certain models and can cope with pressures of 350 bar static. Protection from liquid ingress is assured thanks to these devices’ IP66, IP67, IP68, IP69K and NEMA 4X compliance. They also offer a high degree of immunity to electromagnetic radiation, in accordance with IEC/EN 61326-2-3 (Class B).The patented Temposonics technology developed by MTS provides an extremely accurate non-contact method for measuring position which is highly suited to use in the most demanding of modern industrial applications. The sensors based on this technology are thus highly resilient to vibrations, shock, extreme pressures. Since these sensors are not reliant on moving parts, they have prolonged operationally lifespans, with little or no maintenance required. Furthermore, they can be mounted within even the most space constrained settings. “The T-Series delivers a combination of performance and reliability not previously available to a broad cross section of industries sectors,” explains John Emholz, Senior Vice President and General Manager, MTS Sensors. “This series is the only one to currently offer SIL 2 capability, giving the user added value for their application, while still being cost effective.”last_img read more

Paddle festival makes a big splash

first_imgHundreds took to the water, many in the head-over-heels or capsized-boat sense, at Vancouver Lake over the weekend as part of the 25th annual Spring Paddle Festival.Paul Kuthe, program manager at Alder Creek Kayak and Canoe, a local paddling sport retailer and school that organizes the event, said the festival is a way to kick off the season.“It’s kind of the start of things, so it’s appropriate it seems like the weather is turning the corner. … Finally,” he said Sunday.A big part of the festival has always been about introducing new people to paddle boating, whether on kayaks, canoes or stand-up paddleboards, said Chris Bensch, a coach with Alder Creek.“Our idea is to just get butts in boats,” he said.Guests sign in, usually, then learn about which boat type might be right for them, Bensch said.

Hospitals teeming with mosquitoes

first_imgWater accumulated in coconut shells and at open places on the premises of Dhaka Medical College Hospital. This situation is an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes. Photo: Suvra Kanti DasMugda Medical College Hospital is about seven years old only and its buildings are all quite new. Yet the hospital is unclean, garbage strewn both inside and outside, and water accumulating here and there.The government disease control unit has said that the presence of Aedes mosquitoes carrying the dengue virus is at a high risk level in this hospital.During a visit to the hospital at around 9:30 Friday morning, a banner of the medical college’s principal, Shah Golam Nabi, caught the eye. It read, “Discard unnecessary water around your house, cover all water containers.”The principal used this message to raise people’s awareness regarding Aedes mosquitoes and dengue, but the local people and hospital staff say that the road in front of the hospital becomes water-logged at the slightest of rain. Water gathers on the hospital grounds too.Around 10 cleaners were seen struggling to clear away garbage that had accumulated over quite a few days.One of the woman cleaners said, “Something has happened and that is why we have been told to clean the entire place.”Water had accumulated on almost every floor of the hospital. Old medicine bottles, water bottles, polythene, medicine packets, rags, buckets full of water and coconut shells were piled up in a gap between two walls. The skull of a slaughtered cow was also seen there.On the fourth floor of the hospital, where the director’s office is located, water had accumulated in a flower garden there. Water had also gathered where parts of the hospital complex remained under construction.According to a survey of the government disease control unit, Aedes mosquito larvae was found in 80 per cent of the empty containers lying in and around the hospital. The inside and outside of the hospital is perfect for mosquitoes to breed.The disease control unit carried out a survey from 31 July to 4 August in 14 areas of Dhaka and a dangerous level of larvae was found in 12 of the places.If Aedes mosquito larvae is found in 20 per cent of the discarded containers in any locality, that is considered a high-risk area.Dhaka Medical College Hospital was among one of the three areas where there were Aedes larvae in 60 to 80 per cent of the discarded containers included.Officials of the disease control unit said that they had informed the two Dhaka city corporations of the results a couple of days after the survey was run.Prothom Alo correspondents on Friday visited the Mugda hospital, Dhaka Medical College Hospital, Mitford Hospital, Shaheed Suhrawardy Hospital, Shishu Hospital, Dhaka Mahanagar Hospital and, outside of Dhaka, the medical college hospitals of Chattogram, Khulna, Mymensingh, Rajshahi and Bogura.Prothom Alo correspondents also visited government hospitals in Gazipur, Manikganj and Faridpur districts.The condition of almost all these hospitals was unhygienic with water and garbage accumulated in different places. It was obvious that the hospitals hadn’t been cleaned for long.Water gathered at the underconstruction second floor of Sher-e-Bangla Medical College and Hospital, Barishal. Photo: SayanDirector general of the health directorate Abul Kalam Azad told Prothom Alo, “We had issued directives to all hospitals about maintaining cleanliness and hygiene. They followed the directives too. These matters cannot be monitored every day. Sometimes some places skip attention, but we are sincere in our efforts.”Dengu patients are kept on the floors 8, 9 and 10 at the Mugda hospital. According to official records, 385 dengue patients were admitted to the hospital on Friday. This year 2,197 dengue patients were treated at this hospital so far.At a recent event organised by the hospital, in the presence of the health minister, the locality’s member of parliament Saber Hossain Chowdhury said that 11 dengue patients had died in hospitals this year.There were around 100 patients outside the ward on the 10th floor. The nurses were extremely busy, with hardly time to talk. There were no physicians available for comment. The principal of the medical college was also unavailable over mobile phone.Director of the hospital Amin Ahmed Khan said there were posts vacant for physicians at the hospital. With the increased number of dengue patients, the physicians and nurses were under extreme pressure. Physicians were supposed to be provided from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, but they hadn’t joined as yet.The patients were satisfied with the treatment they were receiving at the hospital, but not with the environment. Several of them said that there were mosquitoes all over the place. A number of patients on the 10th floor were using mosquito nets. Many didn’t get mosquito nets. Many avoided using the nets because it was too hot.The director admitted the mosquito menace. He said the hospital was located on low land and water accumulated at the slightest of rain. Water also gathered in the under-construction parts of the hospital. He said that so far 10 nurses and 12 physicians of the hospital were afflicted with dengue.Entomologist Manzur Chowdhury told Prothom Alo, “There are a lot of Aedes mosquitoes in hospitals like the one in Mugda. They bite dengue patients and spread the virus to others. This is evident in the number of physicians and nurses with dengue fever.”last_img read more

What if buildings of the future could compute European researchers make a

first_imgEuropean researchers have proposed an idea for buildings that could compute. In the paper On buildings that compute. A proposal published this week, they have made proposals to integrate computation in various parts of a building, from cement and bricks to paint. What is the idea about? Smart homes today are made up of several individual smart appliances. They may work individually or be interconnected via a central hub. “What if intelligent matter of our surrounding could understand us humans?” The idea is that the walls of a building in addition to supporting the roof, had more functionality like sensing, calculating, communicating, and even producing power. Each brick/block could be thought of as a decentralized computing entity. These blocks could contribute to a large-scale parallel computation. This would transform a smart building into an intelligent computing unit in which people can live in and interact with. Such smart buildings that compute, as the researchers say can potentially offer protection from crime, natural disasters, structural damage within the building, or simply send a greeting to the residing people. When nanotechnology meets embedded computing The proposal involves using nanotechnology to embed computation and sensing directly to the construction materials. This includes intelligent concrete blocks and using stimuli-responsive smart paint. The photo sensitive paint would sense the internal and external environment. A nano-material infused concrete composition would sense the building environment to implement parallel information processing on a large scale. This will result in distributed decision making. The result is a building which can be seen as a huge parallel computer consisting of computing concrete blocks. The key concepts used for the idea of smart buildings that compute are functional nanoparticles which are photo-, chemo- and electro-sensitive. A range of electrical properties will span all the electronic elements mixed in a concrete. The concrete is used to make the building blocks which are equipped with processors. These processors gather information from distributed sensory elements, helps in decision making, location communication and enables advanced computing. The blocks together form a wall which forms a huge parallel array processor. They envision a single building or a small colony to turn into a large-scale universal computing unit.  This is an interesting idea, bizarre even. But the practicality of it is blurry. Can its applications justify the cost involved to create such a building? There is also a question of sustainability. How long will the building last before it has to be redeveloped? I for one think that doing so will almost certainly undo the computational aspect from it.

some still competition In 2013 the five main economies in Southeast Asia Indonesia the Philippines Malaysia Thailand and Singapore attracted more foreign direct investment ($128 billion) than China ($118 billion) according to a report form Bank of America-Merrill Lynch In fact FDI rose 7% in those Southeast Asian nations last year while falling almost 3% in China The reason is simple: China is just not as competitive as it used to be relative to other emerging economies Wage growth in China has outpaced many other developing countries in the region and is now significantly higher than that

population of nearly 250 million the worlds fourth-largest is an increasingly important pool of potential new customers for everything from cars to French fries FDI into Indonesia surged by 17% in 2013 The implications for China are huge With wages rising so quickly China is losing its edge in the low-end exports that drove its economic miracle which potentially means jobs will start to flow towards its lower-cost competitors Chinas leaders may have to make some uncomfortable policy changes to improve the business environment for foreign investors stripping away red tape opening protected markets and ensuring equal regulatory treatment for local and foreign firms As the worlds second-largest economy China will always get its share of global investment But it wont be as easy as it used to be Contact us at editors@timecom By Andrew MacAskill LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan for Britain to leave the EU customs union when it quits the bloc – and not join a similar arrangement – has become a flashpoint in the Brexit process setting up a possible parliamentary defeat that could force her government into a damaging policy U-turn The European Union’s customs union is a legal arrangement in which all member states participate Some other countries have also joined under varying conditions including Turkey but May has ruled this out for Britain Members of a customs union apply the same tariff to imports from outside the union and apply no tariffs to goods from other members of the union Economic supply chains across Europe rely heavily on this For example car components criss-cross borders many times for processing before a vehicle is finally assembled The union also limits checks and other time-consuming and costly bureaucracy at borders between members Yet there are drawbacks to membership One of the biggest is nations cannot strike their own free-trade deals in goods with other countries May’s Brexit cabinet sub-committee meets on Wednesday to discuss the government’s position on a looser future customs arrangement with the EU WHY IS THE ISSUE SO DIVISIVE The issuelies at the heart of the Brexit debate setting those who argue that pragmatism andbusiness interests should shape government policy against those who prioritise sovereignty andthe idea of Britain as a pioneering trading nation The first group say staying in a customs union will smooth commerce with the world’s largest trading bloc It will also avoid the return of a "hard" border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic There are fears that reintroducing checks on what will be Britain’s only land border with the EU could reignite sectarian violence Brexit supporters say Britain must quit the customs union to pursue independent trade deals with other countries which they argue is a big advantage of leaving the EU They say Britain cannot truly leave the EU without leaving the customs union WHAT HAS THE GOVERNMENT PROPOSED SO FAR The government has proposed two ways of overcoming the difficulties of leaving the customs union and avoiding the need for border checks: a streamlined customs arrangement or a customs partnership The first would involve using technology to lower customs barriers Measures could include pre-approved "authorised economic operators" who are given faster clearance and pre-arrival notifications linked to customs declarations and vehicle registrations so trucks do not have to stop at borders The second proposal would align Britain’s approach to customs with the EU’s removing the need for a customs border Britain would continue to act as if it were in a customs union when dealing with imports from elsewhere If they are bound for EU markets British authorities would collect the tariffs and pass them to the EU WHAT DOES THE EU SAY The EU has rejected both proposals EU officials have dismissed a "digital border" as unrealistic One EU diplomat told Reuters last month it is an "elves and fairies" solution They have also said plans for a customs partnership are too complicated and are unlikely to work The EU is already demanding Britain pay it 27 billion euros it has failed to collect due to fraud on Chinese imports EU officials say that London has lost their trust on customs collection and its refusal to be bound by EU law after Brexit makes them unwilling to consider the proposal Unless a better solution is found the EU has prepared an emergency mechanism under which it would go on regulating trade with Northern Ireland after Brexit This is anathema to London and Northern Ireland unionists who see it as weakening the British province’s links to the rest of the United Kingdom WHAT HAS THE OPPOSITION LABOUR PARTY PROPOSED Labour has proposed Britain being in a new kind of permanent customs union with the EU London would have a say in any future EU trade deals and be able to "negotiate agreement of new trade deals in our national interest" WHAT ROLE DOES BRITAIN’S PARLIAMENT HAVE IN THIS DEBATE The lower House of Commons is expected to vote soon on whether Britain should leave the customs union and there are concerns that the government may be defeated by pro-European rebels in May’s Conservative Party So far 10 Conservative lawmakers have backed an amendment to proposed trade legislation that seeks to bind the government into being in a customs union with the EU A similar amendment is also expected on a customs bill Conservative and Labour sources say other lawmakers are willing to back the amendment but give no numbers The votes could be tight: with the support of a Northern Irish unionist party May has a working majority of 13 seats although some pro-Brexit Labour lawmakers are expected to vote with the government A second flashpoint is the EU withdrawal bill – the legislation that will formally end British membership The upper House of Lords last month challenged the government’s plans to leave the customs union WHEN WILL THE VOTES IN PARLIAMENT HAPPEN Sometime in May the House of Commons will consider the amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill passed by the House of Lords However the amendment requires ministers to report what efforts have been made to secure a customs union only by the end of October and does not explicitly say Britain must reach a deal on such a union Some government officials say the vague wording means it is unlikely to change policy Votes on the proposed trade and customs legislation will be more dangerous for the government but a timetable has yet to be made public Some Conservative and Labour lawmakers say they could happen as soon as this month or delayed until the autumn (Additional reporting by Elizabeth Piper William James Alastair Macdonald; Editing by Guy Faulconbridge and David
