The combination could lead to a U.S. recession that could spread to other economies of the world.“Any possibility of a resolution probably gives you a little green. If somebody comes up and says, ‘We haven’t really progressed much,’ we’ll see it going the other way,” said Adrian Mastracci, the portfolio manager of KCM Wealth Management in Vancouver.“As far as investing goes, we have to get past that.”Meanwhile, a survey of top U.S. business economists released Monday by the National Association for Business Economics showed that most believe that modest growth will be ongoing in 2013, led by rising demand for housing.Based on the survey, NABE sees economic growth of 2.1 per cent after 2.2 per cent growth in 2012.In Canada, the real-estate industry’s main association released a revised forecast for 2012 housing resales.

Road safety books accused of sexualising Muslim girl aged four with hijab

Gina Khan, an advocate of Islamic women’s equality, told The Times: “You are sexualising a four-year-old girl. It is as simple as that. The reason a female is covered is so men don’t look at her. How can you integrate in society if you have a fouryear-old girl wearing a hijab?” Shaista Gohir, chairwoman of the Muslim Women’s Network UK charity, said: “It’s like trying to get that child to try to grow up far too quickly.

She alleged the former first minister touched her bottom and breasts through her clothing while she was alone with him. Police investigating sexual misconduct claims against Alex Salmond are said to be probing an alleged incident at Edinburgh Airport.Officers are understood to have interviewed staff at the airport last week after initial inquiries into complaints by two Scottish Government employees brought fresh information to light.The alleged incident is said to date back to 2008, when Mr Salmond used the airport regularly in his role as First Minister.According to the Daily Record, it did not form part of the Scottish Government investigation into the two sexual harassment claims which emerged in August and sparked a police investigation.A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport said: “We are helping police with their inquiries and are unable to comment further at this time.” Police Scotland said only that its inquiries were continuing. A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport said it was helping policeCredit:PA Mr Salmond, who quit the party to defend himself, strenuously denies the allegations and has launched a civil action contesting the way the government carried out its inquiry, which he claims was unfair.The case came to the Court of Session in Edinburgh last week when a lawyer representing the former MP and MSP, who now hosts a television show on Russia Today, said he would argue that Mr Salmond was not given adequate information about the two sexual misconduct allegations. The inquiry was overseen by the Scottish Government’s senior civil servant, Leslie Evans, the permanent secretary, and Scottish ministers, who are contesting the action.Mr Salmond raised more than £100,000 through a crowdfunding campaign to pay for his legal fees in the case. The case is due to be heard over four days from January 15.A spokesman for Mr Salmond said he “denies all suggestions of misconduct at any time and suggests that everyone should allow police enquires to take their proper course without briefing or breaching their confidentiality”.He added: “Alex has not been interviewed by the police about any matter. He is content to have his case against the Scottish Government stated in the Court of Session in January.” salmond read more

MEG publishes its annual World Exploration Trends report in partnership with the

first_imgMetals Economics Group’s (MEG) 22nd edition of Corporate Exploration Strategies (CES) concludes the industry’s aggregate budget for nonferrous metals exploration surged to $18.2 billion in 2011. Despite periods of weakness and volatility, metals prices-the primary driver of exploration spending- have improved significantly since bottoming in early 2009, and have remained well above their long-term trends through 2010-11. Almost all companies have responded by increasing their exploration budgets over the past two years. As a result, the industry’s aggregate exploration total jumped 44% in 2010 and a further 50% in 2011, more than doubling from 2009’s recent low of $8.4 billion to the new all-time high of $18.2 billion in 2011.The PDAC has partnered with MEG in making this special report on global exploration and industry trends available to its members and Convention 2012 delegates. Ross Gallinger, Executive Director, PDAC, explains “The PDAC makes use of Metals Economics Group’s services to better understand global exploration trends, thereby helping us to support our members through the development of programs and policy recommendations. Metals Economics Group is acknowledged as the leader in providing comprehensive information, expertise, and analysis to the mining industry, and is the premier source for exploration statistics worldwide.”Looking forward, MEG predicts that “despite concerns about the global economy and projections of lacklustre growth for most countries, China and other resource-hungry emerging and developing economies are still expected to lead global GDP growth and demand for metals over the next few years. On the supply side, the industry still faces many of the limitations that existed prior to the 2008 economic downturn that effectively set back the clock on many developments. While periods of weakness and volatility will likely continue in the near term, most metals prices are expected to remain above their long-term trends and comfortably above the nominal cost of production through 2012.“Most major and intermediate producers remain committed to exploration to replace mined reserves and strengthen and grow their pipelines, particularly while metals prices stay relatively strong. We expect most producers – many of which have much healthier balance sheets than they did a few years ago – to continue to invest in organic growth, resulting in a moderate increase in their aggregate exploration allocation in 2012.“Exploration spending by risk capital-dependent junior companies may be a different story, however. As the pace of exploration financings weakened in late 2011 – traditionally the busiest time of year for junior exploration – related financings as companies cash-up ahead of the upcoming field season – many juniors have had trouble raising the funds needed to sustain or increase exploration spending in 2012. Although early indications are that some juniors plan to increase their exploration budgets in 2012, unless equity markets improve over the fi rst quarter, many will likely be forced to reduce exploration spending this year. We therefore expect a slight decline in spending by the juniors, offset by increased spending by the producers, resulting in a net increase of 5%-15% in exploration spending by the industry as a whole in 2012 – a relatively small change compared with the 40%-50% swings of the past few years.last_img read more

Smithsonian Air Space Museum Acquires VSS Unity Rocket Motor

first_imgStay on target The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum has acquired a new out-of-this-world artifact.Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Galactic and The Spaceship Company (TSC), last week donated the hybrid rocket motor used to send SpaceShipTwo, VSS Unity, to space in December.Unveiled during a ceremony at the Washington, D.C., institution, the engine will be exhibited in the forthcoming “Future of Spaceflight” commercial space flight gallery.“The SpaceShipTwo rocket motor is a fitting addition to the National Air and Space Museum’s collection,” according to Ellen Stofan, the John and Adrienne Mars Director of the National Air and Space Museum. “It does not just represent technical achievement. It is sure to also inspire our visitors by demonstrating what can be achieved through entrepreneurial innovation.”Designed and built by TSC, the motor carries the Guinness World Record title of “most powerful hybrid rocket to be used in manned flight.”Weighing in around 3,000 lbs, it boasts 320kN of thrust and a burn duration of around 60 seconds—enough to propel VSS Unity to space at almost three times the speed of sound.The Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo hybrid rocket motor, as seen in the Moving Beyond Earth Gallery of the National Air and Space Museum (via NASM/Eric Long)“We’re proud to be making history as we work toward launching the world’s first commercial space line, and today we could not be more delighted to donate a piece of that history to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum for its wonderful new exhibition,” Branson said in a statement.“The desire to explore space has been an inspiration since time began and, in recent decades, an incredible catalyst for innovation,” he continued. “I hope our donation will also play a small part in inspiring the thousands of visitors as they pass through the new gallery in years to come.”The donated generator—more accurately, the Case-Throat-Nozzle (CTN) assembly—has few moving parts; its simple, robust design, which can be shut down quickly at any point during flight, is ideal for human spaceflight application.“TSC looks forward to building more rocket motors and the fleet of SpaceShipTwo’s, Enrico Palermo, president of The Spaceship Company, said, “watching them provide the power to open space and change the world for good.”On Dec. 13, 2018, Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo completed its first test flight, reaching a boundary more than 50 miles above Earth.Piloted by Mark Stucky and C.J. Sturckow, Unity coasted upwards through the black sky into space, before completing a Mach 2.5 supersonic re-entry into the atmosphere and gliding to a smooth runway landing.More on Geek.com:First Commercial SpaceShipTwo Flight Expected to Launch This YearUnder Armour Will Design Space Suits for Virgin GalacticBlue Origin’s New Shepard Spacecraft Successfully Launches NASA Experiments Virgin Galactic Gives First Look at Its Luxurious Lounge for Space TouristsVirgin Galactic Reaches Space Again, This Time With First Test Passenger last_img read more

Budget Deal Extends Flood Insurance Program – Again

first_img Listen Share X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /00:59 JUSTIN SULLIVAN / GETTY IMAGESDamaged furniture and personal belongings sit in front of a flooded home in September in Richwood, Texas. Several months after Hurricane Harvey hit southern Texas, residents are still navigating the long recovery process.The need for flood insurance became very clear after Hurricane Harvey put Houston under water.The problem is, the National Flood Insurance Program is not sustainable the way it’s currently set up. “The main concern is that it is deeply in debt and continues to be a source of taxpayers’ subsidies,” said Seth Chandler, who specializes in insurance law at the UH Law Center, “so that people in non-flood areas are continuing to subsidize people in flood areas.”He said the continuing resolution the Congress passed simply kicks the can down the road, instead of addressing the problem.“The way to make it sustainable is to both increase the premiums, particularly in the more flood-prone areas,” Chandler said. “And also to use science to draw maps that more accurately reflect risk.”Lawmakers have until March 23 to come up with either another short-term extension or a long-term solution for the NFIP. last_img read more

Commission Rules on Baltimores Confederate Monuments

first_imgMonuments to Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee stand outside the Baltimore Museum of Art. (Photo/Beau Considine/Creative Commons via Flickr)One of the members of the Special Commission to Review Baltimore’s Public Confederate Monuments spoke to The AFRO about the group’s decision to remove two such fixtures.The commission on Jan. 14 voted in favor of removing two of the monuments: the Rodger B. Taney Monument in Mount Vernon and the Robert E. Lee and Thomas J “Stonewall” Jackson Monument in Wyman Park. The group recommended that two other monuments—the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument and the Confederate Women’s Monument—remain in place with the addition of some educational signage.Commission member Larry Gibson said that the group wanted the monument honoring Rodger B. Taney, the fifth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, gone due primarily to his decision in the Dred Scott v. Sandford case.“Taney is most famous for his decision in the Dred Scott case, which advanced slavery in America and is tied to the Confederate cause,” the commission wrote on its website.“What he said was that Black people aren’t really fully human beings,” Gibson said. “He deserves a place in infamy.”Gibson said that the commission also looked at “proportionality” when evaluating what monuments should stay or go.“There are three confederate monuments. There certainly shouldn’t be three,” he said. In Baltimore, Gibson said, there is just one monument to the Vietnam War, one remembering the Korean War and one for World War I. “It’s just out of proportion to have three for the Confederacy.”They said they decided to recommend that the city remove the monument featuring Lee and Jackson because the two men had no ties to Maryland.“Neither Jackson or Lee were Marylanders and didn’t do anything admirable to Maryland,” he said. He said that it might be better to put that monument in the spot where the actual meeting took place. “We are recommending to the city that the city give it to the U.S. Parks Service,” he said.Gibson said the remaining statues could be of value to the city less as an honor to the Southern cause in the Civil War, but as teaching tools. He said that many of the statues seen in Baltimore and throughout the southern states were products of the “Lost Cause” movement, which took place in the early part of the 20th century—well after the Civil War. During this time, southern sympathizers looked to recast the Civil War as a conflict not about slavery or racism but one fought for Southern culture and values.“They painted a false image of slavery, presenting it as a much more sanguine and less horrendous activity than what it was,” Gibson said.Howard Libit, a spokesperson for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, said commission members must submit a formal report to the mayor, who will have the final say. He said that the mayor’s office hopes to have the final report by the spring.Members of the seven-member panel began meeting in September to decide the fate of the monuments. Over the last few months, they have heard from historians, educators and members of the public.last_img read more

Sinkhole at Playa del Carmen beach closes

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — A large sinkhole that appeared one morning in July along a Playa del Carmen beach has disappeared.The large 3-meter by 3-meter hole was a natural sinkhole that the city said occurred due to the natural erosion of waves. The hole, which lasted about two weeks, was tested for a variety of faults, but was determined to be natural.Now, the same sinkhole has closed itself, the only evidence left behind being the yellow caution tape marking the area.Sinkhole at Playa del Carmen beach likely natural says cityOrquídea Trejo Buendía, director of Ecology of Solidaridad City Council, said that they are natural systems which open and close themselves. From the start, they realized it was not necessary to bring in machinery to close the hole.The hole was discovered July 25th on the beach between 10th and 12th streets. On Friday, the city says the hole closed itself, naturally filling with sand from wave-action.One of the largest area sinkholes to hit the area was along the Playa del Carmen-Cancun federal highway in August of 2015 when a massive hole caused the collapse of a section of federal roadway.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
