first_imgThe province released its annual financial statements today, Aug. 9, showing a higher surplus than expected for the 2006-07 fiscal year. The public accounts for the fiscal year ended March 31 reports a surplus of $182.4 million, $109.0 million higher than budget. This is the sixth year in a row that the province has brought in a balanced budget and recorded a surplus at year end. “These are solid results for Nova Scotia, further evidence of our commitment to careful management of the province’s finances,” said Finance Minister Michael Baker. “It takes a lot of effort to produce a surplus each year, and we must continue that focus.” Total 2006-07 revenues from all sources were $8.3 billion, $420.1 million higher than 2005-06, mainly because of higher revenues from petroleum royalties and income taxes. Total expenses from all sources were $8.1 billion, $476.5 million higher than 2005-06, as the government addressed rising costs in health care, education and universities. Financial results of the consolidated fund for 2006-07 showed a marginal overall increase in revenue of $88 million compared with budget, because of small changes in a number of revenue categories. Departments and public-service units in the consolidated fund stayed close to budget, as net program expenses ended up only $4.8 million, or 0.1 per cent, higher than budget. Nova Scotia’s net direct debt — the difference between the province’s liabilities and financial assets — increased as planned because of higher spending on provincial roads, schools and other infrastructure. The government spent $74.7 million more than budgeted on tangible capital assets, for a total of $433.1 million. As of March 31, net direct debt was $12.4 billion, $118 million higher than the previous year, but $18 million less than budgeted. The net direct debt is scheduled to drop in 2007-08 under the province’s debt reduction plan. “We made a deliberate choice to invest more in Nova Scotia’s infrastructure this year, while keeping within our debt reduction targets,” said Mr. Baker. “Roads, schools, and other infrastructure are vital to our economic development.” Nova Scotia’s economy performed well overall in 2006, with a real Gross Domestic Product growth of 2.0 per cent, 4.4 per cent personal income growth, and a 2.7 per cent increase in exports, despite the higher exchange rate. Although overall employment levels dropped slightly (0.3 per cent) to 441,800 jobs, unemployment also dropped to 7.9 per cent, compared with 8.4 per cent in 2005. The March 31, 2007 financial statements are in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Nova Scotia’s auditor general has provided an unqualified auditor’s report that is included in Public Accounts Volume 1. “We are pleased to release the public accounts seven weeks earlier than last year,” said Mr. Baker. “This provides financial results to Nova Scotians in a more timely way.” The province also released its first budget forecast update for 2007-08 today, indicating little change from the budget estimates released in March.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s director of public prosecutions is firing a new volley at SNC-Lavalin that could hobble the company’s ongoing legal fight for a special settlement agreement over alleged corruption in Libya.The prosecutor wants the Federal Court of Appeal to strike out a key element of the construction and engineering firm’s challenge of a ruling that went against the company.Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin faces corruption and fraud charges related to business deals in Libya from 2001 to 2011.The company unsuccessfully pressed the director of prosecutions to negotiate a “remediation agreement,” a legal means of holding an organization to account for wrongdoing without a formal finding of guilt.In a March ruling, a judge tossed out the firm’s plea for a judicial review of the 2018 decision.SNC-Lavalin is appealing the judge’s ruling, pointing to recent revelations from parliamentary committee testimony to bolster its arguments.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Addressing a high-level meeting of the Security Council, Mr. Brahimi, who is Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for the country, stressed that while there was agreement on the goal of establishing a representative and accountable government in Afghanistan, difficulties were encountered in how to achieve this end. Since time was now of the essence, he said, it was indispensable that the efforts of the various Afghan groups be brought together in a single process. “[T]he Secretary-General thinks that instead of continuing with the shuttle diplomacy from one group to the other in the various capitals, the need for nimbleness in finding a political solution now requires that the Northern Alliance and the representatives of the existing initiatives should meet with the United Nations as early as humanly possible,” the envoy said.Based on ideas widely discussed by Afghans themselves, Mr. Brahimi said the approach might begin with a UN-convened meeting of representatives of the Northern Alliance and the Rome and Cyprus processes, among others, that would be later complemented with representatives of other groups, to agree on a framework for the process of political transition. The meeting would suggest concrete steps to convene a provisional council, composed of a large and representative group of Afghans and chaired by an individual recognized as a symbol of national unity. Deputy chairmen could conduct day-to-day proceedings. The council would propose a transitional administration and programme of action for the period of political transition, to last no more than two years, as well as security arrangements, he said. An emergency Loya Jirga would then be convened to approve the proposals and to authorize the transitional administration to prepare a constitution. The transitional phase would result in the convening of second Loya Jirga, which would approve the constitution and create the Government of Afghanistan.Mr. Brahimi stressed the crucial need to have Afghans constitute their own administration. “Parachuting a large number of international experts into Afghanistan could overwhelm the nascent transitional administration and interfere with the building of local capacity,” he said. At the same time, he emphasized the need for a “robust security force able to deter and if possible defeat challenges to its authority.”Options included an all-Afghan security force, a multinational force, or a UN peacekeeping operation. He said the first option was the best, but since it would take time to constitute, serious consideration should be given to deploying an international security presence. He also emphasized that a UN force was not recommended.Calling attention to the looming humanitarian catastrophe in Afghanistan, Mr. Brahimi pledged the UN’s commitment to assisting all people in need and urging the international community to support this effort. At the same time, he highlighted the need for significant international resources for the reconstruction of Afghanistan.”The processes being proposed are not perfect,” he said. “The provisional institutions, whose creation is suggested, will not include everyone who should be there, and it may include some whose credentials many in Afghanistan have doubt about, but let everyone please remember that what is hopefully to be achieved is the elusive peace the people of Afghanistan have been longing for so long.” read more

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 19, 2013 8:39 am MDT Canadian dollar lower amid declining commodities, rising U.S. bond yields TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed slightly lower Monday amid rising U.S. bond yields and falling commodity prices.The loonie was down 0.03 of a cent to 96.69 cents US.Oil and metal prices were lower following strong advances last week.The September crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell 36 cents to US$107.10 a barrel after the continuing violence in Egypt helped push oil up 10 per cent last week.September copper dipped three cents to US$3.33 a pound while December gold bullion fell $5.30 to US$1,365.70 an ounce.The major event for markets this week is the release Wednesday of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s minutes from its most recent meeting at the end of last month. Investors hope to get a better idea of the pace at which the Fed will start to wind up a key measure of economic stimulus next month.Recent economic data and public statements by Fed policy-makers have reinforced the point of view that the central bank will begin tapering its US$85 billion a month in bond purchases as early as September. The policy, which is intended to lower interest rates to shore up the U.S. recovery, has also been credited for a strong rally on many global markets.Speculation about Fed tapering continued to send U.S. bond yields higher, with the benchmark 10-year Treasury at 2.88 per cent late Monday afternoon, up 0.05 of a point from Friday.“In some ways the Fed’s message has already been delivered,” said Scotia Capital chief currency strategist Camilla Sutton.“The U.S. 10-year yield is up (about) 118 basis points since the end of April, more than any other major economy’s bond yield.”Other key events this week include the release of Canadian retail sales data for June on Thursday and inflation data for July on Friday.Beyond the release of the Fed minutes Wednesday, traders will also look to existing home sales data for July on Wednesday and new home sales for July on Friday.

Manny Pacquiao (right) is set to fight the undefeated Floyd Mayweather for the first time on May 2.Credit: Courtesy of TNSGrowing up as a boxing fan, I’ve heard tales of the legendary bouts of Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns, the dominance of Mike Tyson’s prime, and Ali and George Foreman.As time passes, these iconic figures in the sport have become forgotten and almost mythical, as our demographic is much more familiar with George Foreman the grill salesman than the all-time great heavyweight. Today we have two prominent figures in Floyd Mayweather (47-0) and Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2), who will one day be among the greats when they hang it up and can perhaps make boxing the center of the sporting world once more, maybe for the last time. With every waning moment, the sport’s popularity diminishes with the UFC and its chaotic nature, itching closer and closer to the sport’s extinction.For years and years, we heard rumblings about these two fighting, but what was the fuss about?I mean, one guy has never come close to losing a day in his professional life, while the other still gets made fun of on the Internet for getting knocked out just two years ago. What makes this fight so interesting is the contrast of styles in how each fighter approaches each match. Mayweather is an all-time great defensive fighter, perhaps the greatest of his kind, and Pacquiao is a no-holds-barred brawler with devastating punching power he still possesses at the age of 36. Pacquiao is also left-handed and fights southpaw, which has been a problem for Mayweather in the past with their awkward angles and combinations of punches. Pacquiao is still one of the greatest fighters of our generation, despite his reckless abandon nature which can get him in trouble, as we saw against Juan Manuel Márquez in 2012.What’s also very compelling about this fight is the comparison of hand speed and quickness. Mayweather usually overwhelms his adversaries with his all-time great defense and quickness. Pacquiao is just as quick with his hands as Mayweather, so whoever can set the tone and pace of this fight and force the other into their realm of boxing should come out on top.With Pacquiao bouncing back from the devastating blow to his legacy that was the Marquez knockout with convincing wins against Brandon Rios, Timothy Bradley and Chris Algieri, this fight should live up to the hype and give boxing fans the dream matchup that’s been lacking in the sport for decades. Two marquee names that can both satisfy the attentive fan and draw in the casual fan are exactly what the sport needs to see a possible resurgence in popularity and attract some of the younger viewers who are more infatuated with the UFC. While this fight might not be Ali-Frazier in 1975 or Hagler-Hearns in 1985, in 2015, it’s the closest we can get to an all-time great fight.With all that being said, the two best fighters of our lives will finally square off on May 2, and personally, I can’t wait. read more

That involves setting up the Battle.net SMS Protect service before linking your Battle.net account to PayPal. And to use SMS Protect you need a cell phone with a data plan.If you prefer to keep the funds as part of your Battle.net Balance, then you need to either attach a Battle.net Authenticator or use the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app. If you don’t have either you will be prompted to buy the Authenticator, or setup the mobile version before you can proceed.It may seem like an overly-cautious process, but Blizzard is dealing with real money here and wants to ensure gamers are protected.

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — It was revealed at this week’s Board of Selectmen Meeting that MBTA will not honor the request of Wilmington Public Safety officials to keep the North Wilmington train crossing clear for emergency vehicles when a train is stopped at the station.“When the northbound train comes in, if they stop just the first car at the platform, it leaves four train cars across Route 62. The concern of emergency responders in town is we simply can’t get across the tracks while the train is in the depot,” explained Wilmington Police Chief Mike Begonis earlier this summer. “An average train stop runs between a minute and a minute-and-a half, sometimes up to 2 minutes. That’s a critical concern of ours when there’s a major incident on the other side of that crossing that we need to get to.”The feared “nightmare” scenario occurred on Monday, June 17 when several fire apparatus and police officers were held up by a train at the North Wilmington station while responding to a call for service off of Salem Street.“This has been an ongoing source of frustration for us. With that serious call for service, we would have hoped to have gotten there earlier,” said Begonis. “When we do observe the train blocking the station, we do call Keolis. We now have a 2-year history of logs.”The town’s public safety officials and members of the state delegation met with MassDOT, MBTA and Keolis officials this summer to discuss these concerns. Wilmington Fire Chief Joe McMahon updated the Board of Selectmen on the progress of those talks on Monday night.“The issue is, with trains going inbound, the gates are always going to be down. [MBTA’s] biggest fear is if the train stops prior to the crossing, and they’re loading the train, [drivers] are going to jump the gates,” said McMahon. “Outbound trains, for the most part, clear the gates and the gates do go up during the stop… But going inbound, things are not going to change. They told us that at the meeting. That will always occur unless they make the station bigger.”“The way Keolis left it was for [the gates to go up during inbound stops], we need to update the station. The platform is too small. The trains have gotten larger and the platform has gotten smaller,” stressed McMahon.To that end, Wilmington’s State Senator Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) recently inserted $1 million in the state’s most recent economic bond bill to fund improvements to the North Wilmington train station.“That was a product of a discussion we had with Chief Begonis about an absolutely unacceptable situation that occurred there in regards to an impediment to an emergency medical response because the train was in the middle of the road,” Tarr recently told Selectmen. “We’ve been working with the Chief and officials from the MBTA to try to make operational improvements so that will never happen again. We put monies in the economic development bond bill in the hopes that we could agree upon a design, improve the attractiveness of that “port” into town, and ensure that the configuration of the train station would be such that it would now be conducive to getting the train out of the road when it stops…. The measure is two-fold — [economic development] and public safety.”Governor Charlie Baker has signed the bond bill and did not veto the two Wilmington expenditures. The projects, however, must now be selected for inclusion in the Governor’s 5-year capital budget in order for the Town to have access to the funds. The next capital budget isn’t expected to be filed until May 2019.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

first_imgA map of the Susitna Flats State Game Refuge — one of the eight state wildlife refuges to add “hunting preserve” to their names under HB 130. (ADF&G image)The Alaska Senate has a passed a bill that adds “hunting preserve” to the names of eight state wildlife refuges. The original version of the bill passed by the House last year, clears up boundary discrepancies for numerous state refuges and critical habitat areas.Listen nowThe refuge name changes were added in a Senate committee Friday at the request of Senator Cathy Giessel, an Anchorage Republican. Giessel told the full Senate Wednesday that it more accurately reflects the refuge’s purpose.”Hunting is available in all of the places we added ‘hunting preserve.’ Mr. President, a lot of people seem to think hunting is a dirty word,” Giessel said. “I would oppose that attitude. As Alaskans, we should take pride in our hunting heritage, our hunting tradition.”The amended bill also replaces the word “protect” with “conserve” in regard to the refuge and habitat areas purpose, terms the Alaska Department of Fish and Game officials say are interchangeable, but Anchorage Democratic Senator Bill Wielechowski questioned.”If it’s not gonna change anything, why are we changing the words. Of course, it’s gonna change something,” Wielechowski said.Wielechowksi referred to a legal opinion provided to legislators that says the wording could sway future refuge management. Wielechowski also expressed concern that the name and purpose wording changes were made in a committee, without opportunity for public comment.”And just in the last couple days since this ha happened, we have gotten letters of opposition,” Wielechowski said. “We have gotten letters and emails and phone calls people who are saying, ‘No. Don’t change this. Give us an opportunity to weigh in on this. We don;t know how this will change things.”The Amended HB 130 passed the Senate 16 to 4. The House will have to consider the changes made to it by the Senate, before the bill can be forwarded to the Governor.last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Fewer public college presidents hit the $1 million mark in earnings in 2014 compared with the previous year, according to a new survey.The Chronicle of Higher Education study found that two college presidents at public universities received more than $1 million in total compensation in the 2014 fiscal year — Rodney A. Erickson, former president of Pennsylvania State University, and R. Bowen Loftin, former president of Texas A&M University. The Chronicle’s survey for the previous fiscal year found nine college presidents exceeding $1 million in pay, though data from one school was later readjusted, leaving eight presidents earning more than a million. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Erickson retired in May 2014 after 37 years at Penn State as a faculty member and administrator. Loftin is now chancellor of the University of Missouri in Columbia.Among the other presidents on the Chronicle’s list of top earners are Elson S. Floyd at Washington State University, who earned just over $877,000, and Patrick T. Harker at the University of Delaware, with $800,156 in compensation.The Chronicle takes a separate look at private-college pay. Its most recent review of data from 2012 found 36 private college presidents earning at least $1 million.___Online:Presidential pay: http://bit.ly/pres-pay-15Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The Chronicle changed its methodology for total compensation in this year’s survey to include only deferred compensation that was paid out. Previously, deferred compensation that was promised to presidents if they remained on the job was factored into total compensation. Under the new methodology, three of the public college presidents in the 2013 fiscal year would have exceeded the $1 million mark.The survey being released Sunday examined pay for chief executives at 220 public universities and school systems. It found the median salary for presidents who served a full year was $428,250.Total compensation for former Penn State President Erickson was nearly $1.5 million, but the Chronicle said a significant portion of that was because he took ownership of his balance in a university-sponsored life insurance plan valued at $586,000.Loftin, the former Texas A&M president, earned $1.1 million. Most of that was a severance of $850,000 that was paid out in 2014, the survey said.The Chronicle calculates total compensation for public college presidents as base salary, plus bonus, severance and deferred compensation that was paid out. Used as a retention tool, deferred compensation is typically lost if a college president leaves the school early.

He ranks backup cornerback Justin Bethel as Arizona’s best free agent despite Bethel losing his starting job to veteran Tramon Williams, who played well down the stretch run of the year.Williams, a free agent himself, could be a value signing for the Cardinals, as he will turn 35 on March 16. Bethel, who had 41 tackles, one interception and four passes defensed last season, may hold more value in the longterm due to his age (28 years old) and ability as a special teams player.56.

first_imgMembers of an initiative against high rents set up camp outside the Limassol district offices during the weekend to protest over inaction by authorities to support vulnerable groups.The ‘Movement for the Right to Housing’ set up tents outside the Limassol district administration offices on Saturday and some of its members spent the night there as part of their 24-hour protest over lack of sufficient measures to help vulnerable groups. They are to remain there until Sunday evening.The aim of the protest is to raise awareness over problems faced by people with serious financial problems and the homeless, Lefteris Georgiou, one of the group’s coordinators told the Cyprus News Agency, “and to finally restore dignity to people.”“We will continue our struggle and carry on with helping homeless people get off the streets, we will continue exerting pressure where necessary,” Georgiou said.The group, that staged a similar protest last November, are now a registered association under the name ‘Energo” (I Act).The head of the association, lawyer, Elina Zoi, said that their aim is to mobilise members of the public into becoming “active and start participating and claiming their rights.”The first step will be claiming the right to housing, she said, but they will later launch campaigns on the rights to health and education.She called on everyone to support the initiative.The group had said last December that the increase in rents in Nicosia reached up to 30 per cent while in Limassol they have doubled resulting in an increase in homelessness.According to the latest data of the labour ministry the number of homeless people on social welfare’s radar has more than doubled each year since 2015 with 129 cases being managed last year compared with 49 in 2016 and 26 in 2015.The Limassol chamber of commerce and industry (Keve) warned last week that rents in the city will continue to spiral, because of the thousands of construction workers needed to complete the many development projects underway, and all requiring housing in or near the city. You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoMacy'sYou Will Not Believe Macy’s Deals for MondayMacy’sUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
