China’s Top Banks Distance Themselves From Adani Coal Mine Project in Australia

first_imgThe Adani group’s Australian coal mine project, a long-delayed plan by the Indian conglomerate, has suffered yet another setback as two of the biggest banks of China have backed out from financing it. Dispelling reports of their involvement in funding the venture, China Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) and China Construction Bank (CCB) released separate statements saying they are not working on the project.Adani is seeking A$2 billion to finance the A$4 billion first stage of the Carmichael coal mine project in Queensland state by March 2018. The project has been opposed by environmentalists, who have cited concerns for climate change and potential damage to the Great Barrier Reef. The challenges concerning adverse effects on the climate and impact on native land and water supply have earlier been rejected in court.“ICBC has not been, and does not intend to be, engaged in arranging financing for this project,” the bank said in a statement on its Australian website. “ICBC attaches great importance to its social responsibilities and keenly promotes ‘green financing’. This statement is made without any view on or prejudice towards the Carmichael mine project.” ICBC is China’s biggest listed lender by assets.“China Construction Bank is not involved with, nor considering involvement with, the Adani Carmichael Mine project,” an external spokesperson for China Construction Bank in Australia said in a statement on Dec. 4.Australian and overseas banks have also shied away from granting loans for the project.Adani was in talks with China Machinery Engineering Corp (CMEC) for a loan that could have involved China Construction Bank or China Export Import Bank, according to Reuters. Adani’s project aims to start shipping coal by March 2020 in the first stage.“Any financier with any sense doesn’t want Adani,” said senator Andrew Bartlett from Australian Greens party, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. “It’s time for Adani to give it up, save their money and for the politicians of Queensland to focus on the issues that will deliver genuine jobs for regional Queensland,” he said in Canberra on Dec. 4.National senator Bridget McKenzie, however, says Adani’s mine project would be an important source of jobs in Queensland. The Queensland Labor government promised to veto a federal government loan to the project during the recent state election.The mine, located 400 km from a Pacific Ocean shipping terminal, has been at the forefront of debate over the project’s economic viability as its location means infrastructure costs.Adani group declined to comment on its financing plans or the statements from the Chinese banks on Dec. 4, Reuters reported.

first_imgYashwant Sinha, however, sidestepped two questions fromYashwant Sinha, however, sidestepped two questions from AAP legislator Somnath Bharti – one on current Union Finance Minister being from Rajya Sabha and the other on controversy surrounding Aadhaar Bill tabled as Money Bill by the Centre in Lok Sabha.Taking a cue from Sinhas statement regarding restricted legislative powers of Rajya Sabha in budget making, Bharti asked the former Union minister to explain the contradiction in the current Finance Minister being a member of the Upper House.Terming the question as politically loaded, Sinha said there was nothing wrong with it as Constitution mandates a minister to be member of either house.He also said that on the lines of the Centre, state governments should also fix a date to table their budgets in the Assembly.Sinha stressed on the need of Direct Taxes Code (DTC), saying there have been several amendments in the laws since 1961.Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who was also present at the event, said there should be peoples involvment in budget-making process and that the Delhi government is moving towards that.

India vs New Zealand: Fit-again MS Dhoni set to return for 5th ODI in Wellington

first_imgIndia wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni has recovered fully from his hamstring injury and is available for selection for the fifth and final ODI of the ongoing series against New Zealand, India’s batting coach Sanjay Bangar confirmed on Saturday.India and New Zealand will meet for the final ODI at Westpac Stadium, Wellington on Sunday. The visiting team have already sealed an unbeatable 3-1 lead after having won the first three ODIs.Dhoni had missed the third and fourth ODI due to a hamstring injury he picked during the second ODI in Mount Maunganui. Dhoni’s experience in the middle order was missed when India suffered a collapse in the fourth ODI in Hamilton on Thursday, January 31.In the absence of captain Virat Kohli and Dhoni, India were reeling at 35 for 6 and they were eventually bowled out for their lowest-ever ODI total in New Zealand (92). Trent Boult’s five-for set up New Zealand’s eight-wicket win. Middle-order batsmen Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik disappointed as both of them walked back without troubling the scorers.All set for the 5th and final ODI What’s your prediction for tomorrow’s game?#NZvIND BCCI (@BCCI) February 2, 2019Dhoni had trained on the eve of the third ODI in Hamilton but the team management wanted to give enough time to their senior campaigner to return from the injury.Dhoni made a 33-ball 48 not out in the second ODI the only time he had an opportunity to bat in the ongoing series. Dhoni had reached New Zealand on the back of a productive series in Australia.advertisementDhoni hit three half-centuries, including a couple of match-winning innings, to help India seal their first-ever bilateral series win in Australia. Dhoni was named the Man of the Series for his performances in the series.Despite the constant criticism surrounding Dhoni’s ability to finish games, the veteran wicketkeeper looks set for the trip to England for the World Cup. Dhoni has consistently received the backing of captain Virat Kohli and the team management.Dhoni’s good run of form with the bat has only helped him silence his critics and repay the faith the team management had in him.Nonetheless, Dhoni’s quick reflexes from behind the wicket and his ability to constantly give inputs to the youngsters, especially the two wrist-spinners in Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav is turning out to be a big plus for the World Cup-bound Indian team.Also Read | Team India sweats it out in Wellington ahead of 5th ODI against New ZealandAlso Read | New Zealand opener Martin Guptill doubtful for 5th ODI vs India due to lower back injuryAlso See:last_img read more

Amendments to Municipal Government Legislation

first_imgMunicipalities would have more ways to address issues of concern with amendments introduced today, April 28, to the Municipal Government Act and the Municipal Elections Act. “A healthy province starts with strong local government,” said Jamie Muir, Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister. “These amendments will help make sure that municipalities continue to have the right tools to meet the needs of their citizens.” The changes come after consultation with the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities, Halifax Regional Municipality and other municipalities. Changes to the Municipal Government Act include: — Providing timeframes in planning appeals before the Utility and Review Board. The board will have 45 days to begin a hearing relating to a planning appeal after all information is submitted and 60 days to issue a decision after the hearing. — Approval to appoint a municipal auditor general. This is the result of a memorandum of understanding signed between the province and the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities. A 12-month notice must be given to the union by the province before this can take effect. — Providing alternatives to banning breeds of dogs. Municipalities now have the ability to prohibit certain types of dogs they consider dangerous. The amendment provides alternatives to banning breeds while keeping the focus on public safety. For instance, instead of banning, municipalities may require that signs be posted on properties or dogs receive appropriate training. — Controlling tree cutting before development. Municipalities are now faced with instances where people are stripping large residential properties of trees and vegetation without a development permit. This authority is limited to lands large enough to be divided into 11 lots or more in unserviced areas, and lands large enough to be divided into four lots or more in serviced areas. These provisions do not apply to individual lots, forestry operations, or agricultural operations. — The amendments will give all municipalities the power that Halifax Regional Municipality has now to acquire vacant, boarded-up buildings that contravene municipal bylaws. This includes procedures for giving notice and purchasing property. — Clarifying municipal authority to control development around airports. This amendment will enable municipalities to ensure developments do not encroach upon airports and that developments are protected from air-traffic noise. — Streamlining processes for site planning and variances regarding architectural control. — A number of other amendments to further clarify the act. The proposed amendments to the Municipal Elections Act will help clarify process and procedures relating to electronic voting. These amendments were developed at the request of Halifax Regional Municipality in preparation for the October municipal election.last_img read more

Six stories in the news for today Oct 24

first_imgSix stories in the news for Tuesday, Oct. 24———FISCAL UPDATE TO BOOST CHILD-POVERTY SPENDINGThe Trudeau government is expected to announce more money for children and the working poor, along with shrinking federal deficits, in a crowd-pleasing economic update Tuesday that the Liberals are counting on to draw attention away from their embattled finance minister. But despite the economy’s surprisingly strong performance in early 2017, Finance Minister Bill Morneau still isn’t expected to provide a timeline to bring the federal books back to balance. Morneau is expected to enhance the Canada Child Benefit, which the government boasts has already lifted 300,000 children out of poverty.———MORE DETAILS ON RELIGIOUS NEUTRALITY BILLQuebec Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee is expected to provide further details this morning about how the government’s controversial Bill 62 will be implemented. The law bans people from giving or receiving public services if their face is covered. The legislation has been widely derided, with critics saying it targets Muslim women. It applies to public transit, meaning bus and subway drivers might have to tell people they can’t get on if they don’t show their face.———TRUDEAU LIBERALS SCORE QUEBEC UPSET IN BYELECTIONJustin Trudeau’s Liberals have pulled off a stunning byelection upset, snatching the federal riding of Lac-Saint-Jean away from the Conservatives. Lac-Saint-Jean had been held since 2007 by former Conservative minister Denis Lebel until his retirement last spring. Prior to that, it was a Bloc Quebecois stronghold. Richard Hebert, former mayor of Dolbeau-Mistassini, won the riding Monday for the Liberals. The Conservatives held onto another long-time Tory riding, however. Dane Lloyd, a 26-year-old with a history of posting controversial views in social media, easily retained the Edmonton riding of Sturgeon River-Parkland with 77 per cent of the vote.———EX-BOYFRIEND CONTINUES TESTIMONY AT BABCOCK TRIALThe trial of two men accused of killing a Toronto woman and burning her body is expected to hear more testimony from her ex-boyfriend today. Shawn Lerner told court Monday he last heard from Laura Babcock in a text on July 1, 2012, and says he filed a missing persons report with police two weeks after that text. Dellen Millard, 32, of Toronto, and Mark Smich, 30, of Oakville, Ont., are charged with first-degree murder in Babcock’s death. The body of the 23-year-old has not been found. Both have pleaded not guilty.———JUDGE EXPECTED TO RULE IN ELECTION ACT CASEA judge is expected to rule today on an application for a directed verdict in the trial of two Ontario Liberals facing bribery charges under the Election Act. Lawyers for Pat Sorbara, who was Premier Kathleen Wynne’s deputy chief of staff and Liberal campaign director, and local Liberal fundraiser Gerry Lougheed argued earlier this month in a Sudbury, Ont., court for the case to be tossed. Their directed verdict application calls on the judge to dismiss the charges before the defence has even called any witnesses, arguing the Crown hasn’t proven its case.———TRI-COASTAL CANADA 150 JOURNEY NEARS ENDAn ice breaker is on its way to Victoria, marking the last leg in a months-long expedition around Canada’s three coasts. Canada C3 began June 1 when the Polar Prince took off from Toronto on a journey to connect Canadians and celebrate the country’s 150th anniversary.

UNHCR repatriates Angolan refugees from Republic of Congo

According to Kris Janowski, spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the majority of those returning home in today’s convoy from the port town of Pointe Noire had been living there for the last eight years. Nearly 100 refugees were expected to arrive last night from refugee camps to join the convoy, which was scheduled to take the returnees to a transit centre north of Cabinda.In addition to a reintegration package from UNHCR, the Government of Angola has allocated half a hectare of arable land for each returnee family, and will also distribute construction materials to enable each family to put up a house, Mr Janowski said.There are still more than 12,000 Angolan refugees from Cabinda in Pointe Noire alone, and probably over 30,000 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) province of Bas-Congo, where UNHCR was preparing to move 10,000 recent arrivals away from the border.The refugees had fled a rebel offensive on 3 August in northern Angola, Mr. Janowski said. Nearly 2,000 of them were now at a DRC town called Kimvula, while more than 8,000 were in an area known as Kitompolo, four kilometres from the border. UNHCR has deployed emergency teams to the border to help with registration, the distribution of basic supplies and to make arrangements for the transfer of the refugees away from border areas. read more

Arcachon les huîtres peuvent à nouveau être consommées

first_imgArcachon : les huîtres peuvent à nouveau être consomméesLa préfecture de Gironde a donné son feu vert à la commercialisation et la consommation des huîtres du bassin d’Arcachon. Cela faisait un mois que celles-ci étaient interdites en raison d’un taux de toxines supérieur au seuil de sécurité.Voilà une nouvelle qui va réjouir les amateurs d’huîtres. Depuis le 12 avril, la consommation de ces coquillages étaient interdites sur l’ensemble du bassin d’Arcachon à cause de la présence du micro-algue toxique connue sous le nom de dinophysis. Des analyses avaient en effet révélé que le taux de toxines fabriquées par cette algue avait atteint un niveau supérieur au seuil de sécurité, conduisant ainsi les autorités à interdire leur consommation. Mais cette interdiction est désormais levée, comme l’a annoncé il y a peu la préfecture de Gironde.À lire aussiOstréiculture : fin du test de la sourisPatrick Stéfanini, préfet de la Gironde, a levé “l’interdiction de la pêche, du ramassage, du transport, du stockage, de la purification, de l’expédition, de la distribution et de la commercialisation en vue de la consommation, des huîtres du Bassin d’Arcachon”, indique t-elle ainsi dans un communiqué. La semaine dernière, des analyses avaient déjà révélé une présence de toxines inférieure au seuil de sécurité, des résultats confirmés cette semaine par de nouveaux tests.En revanche, l’interdiction n’est pas levée pour tous les coquillages. Le ramassage et la consommation des moules restent interdites sur l’ensemble du bassin ainsi que ceux des coques et des palourdes au sud de la ligne reliant la jetée Belisaire (commune de Lège Cap Ferret) et la jetée de la Chapelle (commune d’Arcachon). Comme l’a souligné la préfecture, l’interdiction restera valable tant que deux résultats consécutifs d’analyse de l’Ifremer, attestant du retour à la normale de leur qualité sanitaire, n’auront pas été constatés.

Juneau Homeless Shelter To Be Closed At Least A Month

first_imgMike Ricker is a long-term resident of the Glory Hole, Juneau’s nonprofit homeless shelter, which was damaged by a flood last weekend. (Photo by Casey Kelly/KTOO)Juneau’s nonprofit homeless shelter, the Glory Hole, will be closed at least a month after a burst water pipe caused major flood damage last weekend.Patrons and staff were adjusting to that new reality Tuesday.Download AudioMike Ricker was about to go to sleep Sunday when the water started pouring down on top of him.“It came down through the Sheetrock in the ceilings three floors, because it was in the ceiling of the third floor, and down through the light fixtures,” Ricker says. “The lights were on and the water was just pouring down out of them.”Even though it’s technically an emergency shelter, Ricker has lived at the Glory Hole for about a year. He says he ended up homeless after getting behind on a number of bills. Now he’s working odd jobs and trying to get his life back on track.Ricker and about 20 other Glory Hole patrons are housed at Juneau International Hostel for the time being. St. Ann’s Parish Hall downtown is hosting the shelter’s regular breakfast, lunch and dinner service.Ricker says he’s grateful to the hostel and church for stepping up on short notice.“If they weren’t open, then what option would we have, you know?” Ricker asks. “We’d be in a pretty tough situation. Thank God for them.”Glory Hole cook Katie Parrott says the whole situation is stressful for both staff and clients.“We just want to make sure that people know that we’re still serving food and handing out sack lunches, so we’re still operating to the best of our ability,” she says.Parrott served about 10 people lunch on Tuesday, a smaller crowd than normal. She says the breakfast service for 21 patrons was about average.“So it could be just, you know, a lot of people will be doing things throughout the day, maybe won’t be here for lunch but will be here for dinner,” Parrott says. “It could be that people are trying to find somewhere to store their things. Who knows?”The closure of the shelter comes after the first big snowstorm of winter hit Juneau over the weekend. Glory Hole Executive Director Mariya Lovishchuk says the broken pipe had frozen before it sprung the leak.Lovishchuk says insurance will cover the cost of repairs, but she worries people will forget about the shelter while it’s closed during the holidays – a time when the Glory Hole typically receives a lot of donations.“One of the concerns that I have is that, you know, our fundraising efforts this year will not be as great,” Lovishchuk says. “So, you know, our operating funds for next year will be jeopardized.”She says contractor North Pacific Erectors is already working on getting the shelter back in business, and the public can help by continuing to donate money and food.last_img read more

Barry, you have no idea how badly we needed and yearned for this.”Jenkins’ follow-up to his best picture winning “Moonlight” was arguably the most anticipated film at Toronto. It’s the first big-screen adaptation of any novel by Baldwin and just the third film by 38-year-old filmmaker who was catapulted to larger renown by the astonishing “Moonlight,” a low-budget independent film that took centre stage at last year’s Academy Awards.Jenkins wrote the script to “If Beale Street Could Talk” the same time he scripted the adaptation of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue.” He did so without the rights to the novel, but later convinced the Baldwin estate to let him make the movie.“I honestly feel that Mr. Baldwin chose all of us,” said Colman Domingo, an actor in the film. “I believe that Mr. Baldwin chose Mr. Jenkins. As I’ve gotten to know these people, we know that Baldwin’s words live in us — all that soaring, searing language, all that rage, all that passion, all that love that only Baldwin can write. Baldwin is the Shakespeare of our times.”Baldwin’s 1974 novel is about two young lovers in Harlem, Tish (newcomer Kiki Layne) and Fonny (Stephan James), whose life together, just as it’s starting, is shattered by a racist police officer and a false accusation of rape. The film, bathed in the warm cinematography of James Laxton and the melancholy Miles Davis “Kind of Blue”-inspired horns of composer Nicholas Britell (both of whom worked on “Moonlight,” too), radiates with the love between two and the sorrow of their unjust but not uncommon circumstance.“We like to say there’s a Beale Street in every city,” said Jenkins before the screening. “There’s probably a Beale Street on the moon.”The moon reference was unwittingly ironic; Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong drama “First Man” had its first screening at Toronto right before the premiere of “Beale Street” — a quirky bit of scheduling that put back-to-back the famously intertwined Oscar favourites of 2017. (Chazelle directed “La La Land,” which was mistakenly announced as the best picture Oscar winner before Jenkins’ “Moonlight” was revealed as the actual winner.)But while “Beale Street” was quickly added to this year’s lists of awards contenders, its premiere was all about the beauty and hardship of being black in America. Jenkins recalled, in the making of the film, channeling an experience he had in the midst of the post-Oscars “Moonlight” celebrations. When leaving the Governors Awards, the film academy’s after-party, and heading to a celebration for Justin Simien’s “Dear White People” (Jenkins directed an episode of the series), he overheard his driver refer to him with the n-word.“If it can happen to me with someone who’s driving me, a person in power, what do you think happens to some dude working a shift at the factory, or some dude walking down the block?” said Jenkins. “I felt this at the height of my public awareness, whatever. If it can happen to me, then it can happen to anyone and we’ve got to tell these damn stories.”“If Beale Street Could Talk” will be released by Annapurna Pictures on November 30.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: read more

Wimbledon semi-final was paused with the contest balanced on a knife-edge on Friday With the clock slipping past 11pm — the official curfew time for action at the All England Club to end for the day — Djokovic survived three set points in a gripping tie-break before outlasting Nadal in a 17-stroke rally to edge ahead in the match Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal change ends during their semi-final match Reuters Battle will resume at 1200GMT on Saturday with the Serbian three-time champion 6-4 3-6 7-6(9) ahead and needing one more set to book a Sunday showdown with South African Kevin Anderson The eighth seed earlier won the longest-ever Wimbledon semi-final in a test of endurance with American John Isner that finished 26-24 in the fifth set after six hours and 36 minutes Following a three-year wait for Djokovic and Nadal to continue their Grand Slam rivalry and then an afternoon caged in the locker room while the Anderson and Isner marathon unfolded they were finally let loose at gone 8pm with the roof closed With David Attenborough the doyen of countless BBC nature documentaries a guest in the Royal Box the two players tore into each other from the start like hungry lions Nearly three punishing hours later they both left Centre Court with their title hopes still intact The exhausted Anderson can only hope that another two sets of equal ferocity are required on Saturday Then he might stand half a chance of a first Grand Slam title on Sunday Prolific Rivalry Djokovic and Nadal had met 51 times before Saturday’s semi-final — the most prolific rivalry in men’s tennis But they had not shared a Grand Slam stage since Djokovic inflicted a bitter defeat on Nadal at Roland Garros in 2015 The 31-year-old Serb who leads their head-to-head series 26-25 but trails 12-17 in Grand Slam titles has been in the doldrums for a year but in the past fortnight has rekindled the inner fire that once enabled him to barge Roger Federer and Nadal aside at the top of men’s tennis There was no easing into Saturday’s 15th Grand Slam meeting between the pair It was full tilt from the first point When the opening three games lasted 16 minutes it was clear the three-hour window to finish the match was insufficient Striking the ball clean and true Djokovic pressurised Nadal and broke in the seventh game when the Spaniard netted a forehand Djokovic sealed a sensational first set in 47 minutes Second seed Nadal saved a break point at the start of the second set and celebrated holding serve with a trademark upper-cut fist pump With Djokovic hitting the lines with relentless regularity Nadal saved two more break points at 1-1 then seized the initiative to punish Djokovic for his first lapse The 12th-seeded Serb broke back immediately with a dipping forehand but Nadal replied with another break which proved decisive as he levelled the match If anything the quality went up another notch under the lights in a third set that went with serve to the tie-break Djokovic led 5-3 but Nadal won a 23-stroke exchange with a dropshot to lead 6-5 Djokovic saved that set point but Nadal earned another with a whipped forehand winner Again Djokovic resisted and again at 8-7 down Nadal saved one set point himself but Djokovic earned one more and forced an error after another long rally to grab the overnight lead John F Kennedy’s inaugural address delivered on a cold January day in 1961 was “destined to be famed within minutes of its delivery” TIME noted the following week “At last came the event that Jack Kennedy had awaited so long and worked so tirelessly to bring into reality” the magazine reported “To the ring of fanfares he arose removed his black topcoat stepped forward with Chief Justice Earl Warren and over a closed family Douay Bible repeated his oath in a clear crisp voice Whatever lay ahead of him this would always remain the high moment of John Kennedy‘s life” The speech would in fact become as well-known as was predicted thanks largely to one of the most famous lines in Presidential history: “ask not what your country can do for youask what you can do for your country” One sign of that fame: the speech (along with others by leaders like Franklin Roosevelt Winston Churchill and Aung San Suu Kyi) is one of the inspirations for the new album from Ted Nash Big Band The music Presidential Suite: Eight Variations on Freedom was originally commissioned for Jazz at Lincoln Center in 2014 The spoken rhythms of each speech directly influenced the rhythms of the music That meant each speech would need a speakerin this case

Filled With Meetings Author: Yuki Noguchi TL;DR: Nine hours Its not how long I spend listening to Ariana Grande songs each week (OK maybe it is) Its how long American workers spend preparing for and attending meetings every week according to this survey Thats a 14% increase from four years ago Why do meetings last so long And why are there so many in the first place The answer is Parkinson’s Law: the notion that a task will take as long as the time you allotted for it The biggest culprit is a silent assassin Its not just you or your boss Its your Google and Outlook calendar invites Think about it: your meetings default to 30-minute intervals Why stick to that Try a 15-minute meeting next time and see what happens University of North Carolina Professor Steven Rogelberg says "Give the group half as much time … and they finish in half as much time And the quality of the meeting is just as good” But how about meetings that shouldnt be cut in half but cut entirely They persist because there’s little self-awareness among people who run meetings The vast majority self-report that they’re running meetings well ("But of course All these people doodling and tweeting must mean Im running
