first_imgAdvertisement Facebook Twitter Advertisement Login/Register With:center_img After spending the hiatus speculating over his fate, Mary Kills People revealed that Ben (Jay Ryan) was indeed still alive. The mystery was solved in the Season 3 premiere episode’s final minutes as Detective Hall (Scott Cavalheiro) approached Ben about an apparent suicide call he had just been on that seemed a bit fishy given the “angel of death” herself, Dr. Mary Harris (Caroline Dhavernas), also happened to be on the scene. While Ben wasn’t so easily swayed into helping by Detective Hall, he was clearly shocked to learn that Mary was five months pregnant.Those five months have been pretty hard on Ben as well. “He’s kind of down and out,” Ryan told The TV Junkies on a set visit earlier this year. “He’s not only given up Mary, but he’s also given up his career. He’s become a bit of a recluse.” Luckily, Ryan did add that while “he is in a bad state,” when viewers see more of him in this week’s “Girl Problems,” written by Jane Maggs and directed by Norma Bailey, he “progresses and moves forward pretty quickly.” Jay Ryan (Corus Entertainment) LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment last_img read more

Rabat – Manchester United’s Manager, Louis Van Gaal, expressed his concern following a few physical injuries suffered by his left-footed players.The British club has been forced to take two footballers, who happen to be left-footed, out of the game due to injuries, namely the English left-back Luke Shaw, who has a broken leg, and the Argentinian international Marcos Rojo, who has a hurt hamstring.Dutch manager, Van Gaal, said he is facing a problem because of this series of injuries. “The left-footed players, Shaw and Rojo, are injured, so I have a problem,” he said according to British media.Shaw and Rojo were left out of Wednesday’s United’s match against Ipswich, in which Van Gaal’s team scored an absolute win (3-0).Despite their win, United’s manager had to come up with a strategy to retain the “balance” within his team, in order to lessen the absence of Shaw and Rojo on the pitch.“We have to spare the players. Smalling and Mata have played all the minutes, Blind also,” he said.“I have changed every player except a left-foot player, so Blind has played all the minutes,” he added. read more

6 May 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today congratulated the Government and people of New Zealand, the recipient of this year’s Franklin Delano Roosevelt International Disability Award, for their efforts to improve the lives of those living with disabilities. The Award is presented by the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute to a UN Member State that makes noteworthy progress towards the full participation of citizens with disabilities as called for in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.In his remarks at the award ceremony, Mr. Ban noted that New Zealand is widely recognized for its leadership on disability issues, particularly as a leading proponent of the Disabilities Convention, which just entered into force on 3 May. Ambassador Don McKay of New Zealand chaired the committed tasked with drafting the Convention, and his “inspired leadership ensured an open, transparent and inclusive process that led us to a successful outcome,” the Secretary-General noted. The Ambassador’s leadership was a reflection of his country’s deep commitment to disability issues domestically, Mr. Ban added, noting that the Government’s comprehensive disability strategy led New Zealand to adopt Sign Language as its third official language in 1996. It has also promoted quality living for persons with disabilities within their communities. “As a result of these many similar measures, New Zealand has become a model for the world on disability issues,” said Mr. Ban. “Your example strengthens our resolve to ensure human rights and development for all – especially through the full and meaningful participation of persons with disabilities in every level of society, from the local to the global.”The Secretary-General’s own country, the Republic of Korea, was the first recipient of the Award, which was established in 1995. read more

BERLIN — Bombardier Transportation has signed two contracts with Transport for London worth US$558 million to build and maintain another 45 four-car electric multiple train units.The first contract covers the design and manufacture of 180 new vehicles and the second is a 35-year agreement providing maintenance for the new vehicles.The contracts include an option for up to 24 additional trains and another to extend the maintenance support for five years.Bombardier Inc’s top business-jet customer says it has ‘all the trust in the world’ in the companyBombardier Inc ‘doing all the right things’ — but still a long way from CSeries targetBombardier Transportation, which is based in Berlin, says the new trains will be built in Derby, England and will create hundreds of jobs.Bombardier had announced during the Paris Air Show in mid-June that it had been selected as the preferred bidder for the trains.The company had won an original deal to provide 57 trains starting in 2007 for a suburban rail network in Britain that serves Greater London and Hertfordshire with 111 stations on several routes. read more

TORONTO — Canadian municipalities must take the initiative to seek out international business and economic opportunities, especially given U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats to tear up the North American Free-Trade Agreement, Hamilton Mayor Fred Eisenberger says.Speaking from the Colombian capital of Bogota, Eisenberger said his city and nearby Niagara region is trying to build a relationship with the South American country that began at the Pan-Am Games in the greater Toronto area two years ago.“Municipalities today are much more aggressive and need to be,” Eisenberger said in an interview. “(They) can’t necessarily wait for the national government to do a junket to a country of its choice or for the provincial government, although we participate in those as well.”Trump has long made it clear that he wants, at the very least, to renegotiate NAFTA, saying the deal with Canada and Mexico has put the U.S. at a disadvantage. He repeated that position on Sunday.“We are in the NAFTA (worst trade deal ever made) renegotiation process with Mexico & Canada. Both being very difficult, may have to terminate?” the president tweeted.“The only thing that needs to be terminated is your presidency,” Eisenberger shot back in a tweet of his own. “Save yourself and your country. Resign and you will be popular everywhere.”Justin Avery, CEO of Hamilton-based Xeist Inc., has just returned from Colombia with a view to finding a manufacturer to produce the company’s sportswear. Trump’s statements on NAFTA are disturbing and underscore the need to look at places to do deals, he said.“It definitely does become a concern, especially with a 75 per cent hike that he was talking about on some tariffs,” Avery said. “We have to weigh our options and look at different options now just because of that.”While Eisenberger said he expects NAFTA to survive given its importance to the United States, the mayor made it clear he has little time for the president’s threats and style of politics. Sunday’s response to Trump, Eisenberger told The Canadian Press, was borne of anger over what he called the president’s divisive politics, misogyny and racism.“I’ve been watching this whole Trump experience with interest and frustration — certainly the kind of divisive politics has caught my attention and certainly is something we should stand against and speak against,” Eisenberger said. “The NAFTA tweet was a culmination of frustrations, and this one culminated for me on Sunday when he put a tweet out there saying he may want to terminate the NAFTA agreement, which I think is ridiculous.”Eisenberger is leading a delegation during a 12-day visit that will take in three Colombian cities — Barranquilla and Medellin as well as Bogota. Representatives from several area businesses, such as Air Canada Cargo and Kubes Steel, as well as from McMaster University and Mohawk college, are joining the mayor starting Saturday.The Pan-Am Games afforded Hamilton an opportunity to host business people and others from the Americas and Colombia, with whom Canada already has a free-trade deal, turned out to be a country of particular bilateral interest. The South American country has finally put behind years of a drug-cartel-fuelled insurgency and entering a period of growth and stability that is making it an attractive place to further ties, the mayor said.“We’ve continued to nurture that relationship and are now getting more specific in terms of meeting businesses and leaders here directly on potential opportunities in agri-business, in information and communications, in advanced manufacturing,” Eisenberger said.Among other things, the McMaster Innovation Park research centre is expected to sign a memorandum of understanding with a Colombian counterpart. read more

DETROIT – Fiat Chrysler says it will sink $1.5 billion into a suburban Detroit factory as it retools plants to make more trucks and SUVs and stops producing small and midsize cars.With the investment announced Tuesday, the company will equip the Sterling Heights, Michigan, Assembly Plant so it can make Ram pickup trucks. The plant currently makes the Chrysler 200 midsize car, but that production will end in December.Fiat Chrysler says the investment hinges on formal approval of incentives by state and local governments.CEO Sergio Marchionne has said the company wants to find a partner to build small cars, but spokeswoman Jodi Tinson says FCA has nothing to announce at present.The investment is part of a series of moves to increase Jeep and Ram production and cease manufacturing of smaller cars.After December the 3,000-worker Sterling Heights plant will close so the company can set it up to make Rams. FCA wouldn’t say when it would reopen, but until it does, the company’s Warren, Michigan, truck plant will keep making Rams. Eventually, that plant will be retooled to produce the Jeep Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer, an SUV that’s larger than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.Tinson said the number of jobs wouldn’t change at either facility once the retooling takes place.Earlier this month FCA said it would spend $1 billion to retool a factory in Toledo, Ohio, for production of a new Jeep Wrangler and to move its Jeep Cherokee line to a plant in Belvidere, Illinois.In all, the changes will add 700 jobs along with a $700 million investment in Toledo. Moving the Cherokee will bring 300 more jobs and a $350 million expansion in Belvidere.The Belvidere factory now makes the compact Dodge Dart car and Jeep Patriot and Compass small SUVs. FCA plans to stop making the Dart in September and the Compass and Patriot by the end of the year. But it has plans for a new compact SUV.The moves come as the U.S. auto buyers continue to shift away from cars toward trucks and SUVs. Through June, car sales fell nearly 8 per cent while truck and SUV sales rose 9 per cent, according to Autodata Corp. Trucks and SUVs accounted for almost 58 per cent of U.S. sales, while cars were 42 per cent. The truck and SUV market share is two percentage points higher than a year ago.

South Carolina defensive star Jadeveon Clowney likely will miss the Gamecocks’ spring game Saturday because of a neck injury that is not deemed to be serious.“His neck and back (are) stiff,” defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said. “Whether he goes another snap [this spring], I don’t care.”The All-American defensive end reportedly sprained his neck last week when he collided with defensive tackle J.T. Surratt in practice. Clowney was not cleared for practice Tuesday, but he seemed optimistic his absence the rest of the week will not hurt his preparation for 2013.“It’s not really about being out here,” Clowney told reporters. “It’s about learning the playbook. We put in some new stuff, so all I have to do is learn the play calls. The rest of it, I’ll catch up on.”As long as Clowney’s neck heals properly, there should be no fallout from this injury other than disappointment for fans watching the annual Garnett & Black Spring Game on Saturday. Clowney is expected to be a Heisman Trophy candidate after ranking second nationally in sacks (13) and tackles for loss (23½).While Clowney might not be in pads, he will be honored at halftime as the winner of the 2012 Ted Hendricks Award, presented to the nation’s top defensive end. Former college and NFL great Ted Hendricks will be on hand to present the trophy with Gamecocks’ coach Steve Spurrier. read more

This is in addition to a previous contract awarded to JR Ranch for the Manari Bridge approach realignment in Region 9, Rupununi valued at $83M.The roads were identified following discussions with the Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association and several miners and forest operators who had explained that the condition of the roads was hindering their production efforts  and costing them more to move supplies in and out of the interior.“Ultimately, it is government’s intention to assist miners and foresters to achieve and maintain high yields of production, and as has occured in the past, the intervention became necessary” a MNR statement posited while highlighting that concerns raised by hinterland residents during outreaches conducted by them also guided the decision by Minister Trotman to see the re-engagement of the MNR in hinterland roads maintenance.“In particular, rehabilitation of the Linden-Ituni- Kwakwani Road, Region 10, will recommence at the end of the May-June rainy season” the statement said.The Guyana Geology and Mines Commission through the Ministry of Natural Resources awarded the contracts for the repairs to the road to International Imports and Supplies to the tune of $239.7M. The contractor has mobilised equipment at site and marking out of the road has commenced.According to the MNR, “the Linden-Kwakwani road is an important conduit for forest operators and repairs will also benefit the residents of these two communities and those along the corridor including the residents of Ituni and Aroaima. Persons living along the Berbice River will also benefit. The works include ditching, excavating, section repairs of soft spot and filling with laterite.”Also in Region Ten, maintenance of the Rockstone-Mabura Road should commence at the end of the rainy season. A $140.4M contract was awarded to MMC Inc. for this project.“Meanwhile, maintenance of the Annai to Lethem Road should commence in the first week of June pending facilitating weather. A contract for $139.3 M was awarded to D&R Construction and Machinery Rental on May 3, 2018. The contractor has submitted all bonds and the mobilisation advance is being processed. The contract for the continuing section of the road from Annai to Kurupukari was awarded on the same date to MMC Inc. and work was scheduled to commence in the final week of May” said the Natural Resources Ministry.It was also outlined that the realignment of the Manari Bridge approach is also expected to start at the end of the rainy season.An $83 million contract was awarded to JR Ranch for this project. This realignment has become necessary following several accidents and a promise made by government to intervene. read more

first_imgLess than one-fifth (18%) of employee respondents have some form of critical illness or income protection cover that would help them financially if they were to develop a serious illness, according to research by Canada Life Group Insurance.Its survey of 1,010 UK full-time and part-time employees also found that 72% of respondents would struggle to cope financially if their income dropped by £570 a month, the average loss of income experienced by 80% of families following a cancer diagnosis.The research also found:80% of respondents who are single and have children would struggle financially if their income dropped by £570 a month, and 10% of these respondents have some form of critical illness or income protection cover.70% of respondents who are married or in a committed relationship with no children would struggle to cope if faced with a £570 a month reduction in income, and 18% of these respondents are covered by critical illness or income protection.71% of respondents with children who are married or in a committed relationship would struggle to cope with a £570 drop in monthly income, and 22% of these respondents have critical illness or income protection.12% of respondents who are single with no children have critical illness or income protection, and 70% would find it difficult to manage if their income fell by £570 a month.18% of respondents have no savings at all, and 10% have less than £1,000 to fall back on.72% of respondents would struggle to afford utility bills if their monthly income dropped by £570. Other expenditures that would be difficult to afford include the weekly food shop (57%), mortgage or rent payments (43%), TV, internet and phone costs (51%), and car and other travel costs (50%).45% of respondents would need to apply for state benefits to get by financially if they were diagnosed with cancer and lost their income.22% of respondents worry about being a financial burden on their family, and 16% are more concerned about their finances than their health.46% of respondents are not worried about their lack of critical illness or income protection cover.Paul Avis (pictured), marketing director at Canada Life Group Insurance, said: “A head in the sand approach to the financial impact of cancer is putting families’ futures at risk. Cancer accounts for nearly seven in 10 critical illness claims and incidence rates have risen across all age groups, affecting those of working age as well as older people.“As cancer survival rates also rise, more will undergo extended periods of treatments, likely resulting in a leave of absence from work and a reduction of income. It’s clear from our research that most families would struggle to cope with this financially, but few have protection in place to provide the support they would need.“With the ability to meet essential areas of expenditure such as housing, utility and food costs at risk, employers should consider the workplace benefits they can offer to prevent valued members of staff having to experience such hardship.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Obama administration’s plan for shuttering the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay released Tuesday offered no new information for defense communities anxious to learn which installations DOD was eyeing to house prisoners that would be relocated from Cuba.Officials identified 13 potential facilities in the United States — including federal and state prisons, as well as military installations — for the purpose of preparing a cost estimate, but the plan neither names them nor recommends a specific site.“Based on past reviews and a 2015 survey of potential detention locations in the United States, the Department of Defense determined that, with modifications, a variety of Department of Defense, Bureau of Prisons, and state prison facilities could safely, securely, and humanely house Guantanamo detainees for the purpose of military commissions and continued law of war detention,” the plan states.Last year, DOD teams surveyed the disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.; the Naval Consolidated Brig in Charleston, S.C., a federal supermax facility in Florence, Colo.; and the Colorado State Penitentiary II in Canon City. Officials also considered building a brand new prison at a DOD facility, according to the plan.“As part of the assessment process, the Department of Defense examined ways to split the detainee population between sites, but concluded that a single detention center was the most efficient course of action,” the plans states.At a Pentagon press briefing that followed President Obama’s White House introduction of the plan, press secretary Peter Cook said the names of some of the 13 locations possibly may be revealed during the dialogue with Congress over the issue.“At this point, we don’t anticipate releasing those names publicly, in part because this conversation has just begun with Congress, but it could be something that comes up during the course of those conversations,” Cook told reporters. Some of the information may be classified, he added.When asked why the plan didn’t recommend a single location, Cook said officials first needed lawmakers to offer their input on possible locations.“There are details here that matter, and we want Congress’ input on issues about whether a remote location or locating a facility like this on an existing DOD property, whether or not there’s a preference there,” Cook responded.“Congress is going to have to decide ultimately … whether this plan moves forward and in what shape, but we think we’ve presented with them a pathway, a range of options, if you will, cost options based on a DOD facility, a greenfield facility, a facility perhaps that’s not at a DOD location,” he said.And while reporters repeatedly pointed out the overwhelming opposition to the administration’s plan from congressional Republicans, Cook said the plan offers an opportunity for the administration and lawmakers to jumpstart a discussion on the best way to close the Guantánamo prison.“We think there is the opportunity to engage with Congress now, consider what these options are, what the costs are, what the benefits are, what the potential negatives might be with regard to each and every one of these potential locations and that that will present an opportunity to … advance this,” Cook stated.

People who already have Apple Music will receive three months of additional service on their accounts. Since the music service will be fully built into to the vehicle, users will be able to tag songs from terrestrial radio and add them to their Apple Music playlist. The Porsche’s voice command system can also be used to play songs, albums or radio stations on Apple Music.Bose and Burmester audio systems will be offered in the Taycan.

first_imgState Seismologist Michael West. Photo: Liz RuskinThe tsunami warning that rattled Alaskans last week exposed weak spots all over the disaster safety net. An unfortunate coincidence struck the Alaska Earthquake Center in Fairbanks that night.Listen now“Twenty minutes or so before the earthquake occurred, unrelated, Golden Valley Electric Association had a modest regional power outage,” State Seismologist Michael West, director of the Earthquake Center, told the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Tuesday.West said the outage shut off networking equipment at the Geophysical Institute, where the Earthquake Center is housed, on the campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.“So essentially, the Alaska Earthquake Center, all of its data and products, were dark for about an hour or so,” West said. “Yeah, not a proud moment, really.”The center collects data from about 130 seismic monitoring stations around the state, what West calls the backbone of earthquake monitoring in Alaska. But the Tsunami Warning Center had other stations supplying information. If the earthquake had been catastrophic, West said the data outage might’ve been a problem for, say, responders trying to determine which communities were hardest hit.West told committee chair Lisa Murkowski this was a known vulnerability.“We’ve been clear with stakeholders for several years now that we do not have back up systems in place,” West said. “We do not have modern continuity of operations. I mean, the reasons are fairly simple.”West said the center’s revenue sources, state and federal, have been pared back.West acknowledged the bad timing was fairly astounding.“When we develop in-house scenarios to test,” West said after the hearing, “this is one that people would write off as unrealistic: ‘Let’s have a power failure, and then an earthquake!’”A spokeswoman at the Fairbanks utility confirmed the power failure was unrelated to the quake. She said heavy snow fell on a distribution line Monday night, briefly cutting power to part of the city.The Earthquake Center continued to put out information on social media early Tuesday morning, during its data outage.last_img read more

first_imgEmployees of WM Motor Technology Co., Ltd. work at their office in shanghai, China, August 1, 2016. (Representational Image)ReutersEmployee happiness is one of the key issues that companies are facing today and more organisations are looking at how to boost it in order to become the best in the business. Now Ramco Systems has developed an app that captures the employee mood and helps employers improve productivity. In an exclusive chat with International Business Times India (IBT) Raghvendra Tripathi, Chief Performance Officer (CPO), Ramco Systems, talks about employee happiness, the need for the app and more.IBT: Why is there so much stress on happiness of employees today?Today’s business globe spines twice as fast, with employees facing do-or-die situations at every other juncture, rising stress levels at workplace. The inability to strike a good work life balance is another key reason for unhappiness. Organisations have realized the catastrophic consequences of unhappy employees. Most unhappy employees eventually and/or reluctantly move on from the company, incurring the organization significant expenses – from the recruitment to on-boarding, training and bringing him/her up to speed. While there are a few who do decide to stay back, the repercussions of an unhappy, uninspired employee are equally disastrous. Studies reveal that human happiness has positive effects on productivity and happiness tends to invigorate and inspire human beings. An inspired employee is any company’s best asset.IBT: Around the globe, the concept of work from home and working on the move has increased. Does this impact employee happiness?Organisations are gradually adapting to “zero employee cost” model, where zero/minimal cost is allocated to employee management by means of domesticating data through digitisation. Employees are now contracted based on their expertise to complete a specific task or activity. We can broadly categorize today’s workforce into passionate Gen-Y workforce and substitutes. While passionate employees have autonomy in their work and are usually highly inspired, substitutes might feel some amount of stress and anxiety.IBT: What is the EMPSENSE app all about? How will it help employers?EMPSENSE, derived from EMPloyee SENSor, is a user-friendly app that instantly captures employee mood. In other words, the app helps onsite employees enter their mood with a single tap on devices placed at strategic locations within the premises. The data generated from the app integrates with the rest of the employees’ data through an NFC (near field communication)-enabled ID card. Post a detailed analytics, extensive data insights are delivered via a cool UI dashboard. The dashboard provides detailed patterns and trends to team leads and managers, to better engage and inspire their employees.Raghvendra Tripathi, Chief Performance Officer, Ramco Systems.PR handoutIBT: Is this app the first of its kind?There are only a handful of apps across the globe that measure employee moods and Ramco EMPSENSE is one of them. What differentiates EMPSENSE from all else is its ability to integrate data with the company’s HCM (Human Capital Management) application and derive powerful inferences from detailed analytics. Moreover, the apps are also customisable to include other organisation-specific parameters – simple questions related to growth, quality of life, and remuneration.IBT: How will this app help employees?EMPSENSE is powerful in its ability to deliver disruptive results, thus proving to be instrumental in improving/enhancing employee engagement models across the business landscape. Better engagement can lead to increased productivity and reduce burnout scenarios in the workplace. EMPSENSE results are also displayed at various spots of the workplace with results that display the overall happiness percentage in the office. This increases the overall morale of the employees in the organisation when the results are positive. When the results showcase otherwise, it provides an excellent opportunity for the management to further steps towards creating a more conducive work environment for their employees.IBT: Isn’t happiness related to more than just productivity?Of course it is… While studies do reveal that happiness is correlated to increased productivity, happiness does so much more. A happy employee has reduced stress levels and improved work-life balance. We often see that the major challenge organisations face today is to improve the work-life balance of their employees, in order to lower attrition rates. A happy employee is a balanced employee. Happiness also has an impact of certain physiological reactions that occur in our body, and thus can improve health aspects. It is safe to say that happiness is related to the overall, holistic well-being of employees.IBT: How would define a ‘happy employee’?A happy employee is someone who understands, likes, values and finds satisfaction in the work they do. They have a sound sense of self-worth in the organisation and a feeling of accomplishment at the end of most work days. An employee who feels a strong sense of belonging and truly identifies himself with the culture in which he operates is an employee who is happy to be where he is.IBT: What are the other apps Ramco is working on?We, at Ramco, are constantly thriving on our disruptive innovations. Ramco Systems is now focusing on the application of bots in enterprises for automation and straight-through processing. While bots are the hot favorites of B2C companies, very little has been explored on their role in enterprise applications. We recently created 22 bots related to human resources-related functions and 12 for the aviation industry. The HR bots are already in use within Ramco and we have also are piloting it with a few select clients.last_img read more
