Canadian Pacific secondquarter profits rise to 371 million revenues increase

CALGARY – Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP) posted “record after record after record” in the second quarter despite the lingering effects of a harsh winter, CEO Hunter Harrison said Thursday in touting earnings results that surpassed expectations.Profits grew 48 per cent in the April-June period compared with a year earlier, even as the nasty weather’s impact dragged into April, particularly in its U.S. Midwest operations where congestion around Chicago has been an ongoing issue.Net income rose to $371 million from $252 million for the same period ended June 30 a year ago.On a per share basis, profits were $2.11, a penny higher than analyst expectations as compiled by Thomson Reuters.Revenues increased to $1.68 billion from $1.5 billion.Operating expenses were two per cent higher at $1.09 billion.Canadian Pacific’s operating ratio — a closely watched industry measure of operating expenses as a share of revenues — was an “outstanding” 65.1 per cent, Harrison said.A year earlier, the company’s operating ratio was 71.9. The lower the operating ratio, the better.While a sub-60 operating ratio isn’t out of the question for the third quarter, Canadian Pacific isn’t changing its 2014 target of 65 or lower, Harrison said.“If there’s no unforeseen issues in the third and fourth quarter, you’re going to see some pretty good numbers there.”The railway’s shares were up 3.4 per cent at $204.58 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. CP’s results also gave a lift to rival Canadian National Railways (TSX:CNR). Its shares gained 53 cents to $71.98 ahead of the release of its earnings on MondayCanada’s two biggest railways — Canadian Pacific and Montreal-based Canadian National — have been under pressure to deal with a backlog of Western Canadian grain shipments they’ve blamed on poor winter conditions combined with a record crop. Farmers and government officials have questioned that explanation.Earlier this year, the federal government stepped in with measures to get the grain carloads moving, slapping fines on railways that don’t ship a certain amount of grain every week.Harrison has been blunt in his criticism of Ottawa’s moves.“Anyone that thinks that some of this legislation…can have an impact on moving grain, they’re nuts,” he said, adding recent flooding in the Prairies doesn’t appear to have affected this year’s crop as much as expected.“They don’t know anything about the infrastructure or the movement or grain.”Meanwhile, Canadian Pacific said late Wednesday it would go to court to try and block an arbitrator’s ruling that a cocaine-using locomotive engineer be reinstated. The case stems from an incident in late 2012.The railway said the worker took the drug “at a time and of a quantity which could impact his duties.”“The arbitrator’s decision is an outrage and, as a railroader, I am appalled we would be forced to place this employee back in the cab of a locomotive,” said Harrison.Also, on Wednesday afternoon, 24 rail cars went off the tracks west of Moose Jaw, Sask., but there were no leaks, injuries or threats to public safety.Follow @LaurenKrugel on Twitter Canadian Pacific second-quarter profits rise to $371 million, revenues increase AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 17, 2014 5:58 am MDT read more

Ohio State alumnus Patrick Gallagher making moves in the world of racing

Ohio State alumnus Patrick Gallagher (pictured racing in his car) will be returning to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Acura Sports Car Challenge on May 4, 2018. Credit: Courtesy of IMSA/LAT.Patrick Gallagher stepped onto the track of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in the summer of 2013 with an unconventional piece of gear under his arm: an Ohio State football-inspired racing helmet.The purpose of the Ohio State graduate’s helmet design was twofold: to pay homage to the Buckeyes and to raise money for Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. Following the race, the helmet was signed by Gallagher and auctioned off to the highest bidder.“It was my home race and I thought we could do something cool. We wanted to do something and raise money and bring it back [to Nationwide],” Gallagher said. “I thought, ‘what would people in Ohio like?’ And that’s obviously Ohio State football.”The owner of Gallagher’s team at the time, Major League Baseball pitcher CJ Wilson, is also the founder of CJ Wilson’s Children’s Charities, an organization focused on supporting families with children with hemophilia.  While that team was working to build up families in need, they were also working to build up Gallagher’s racing career.Ohio State alumnus Patrick Gallagher will be returning to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Acura Sports Car Challenge on May 4, 2018. Credit: Courtesy of IMSA/LAT.Gallagher, a Thornville, Ohio, native, began racing at a young age. He desired to follow in the footsteps of his father Larry Gallagher, who raced cars for 20 years. He grew from driving quarter midget go-carts at 6 years old to speeding open-wheel cars by the time he was 16, earning his first national title at 17. From there, he broke into the Sports Car Club of America Pro Racing circuit and found his way to Wilson’s team, racing a Mazda MX-5.At the same time, Gallagher pursued a degree in industrial and systems engineering at Ohio State. Despite not having the usual perks of being a student-athlete, Gallagher found his professors supportive of his racing career and willing to accommodate his schedule.“I think the fact that it was engineering professors and racecars, they kind of got interested in that, so that probably helped,” Gallagher said. “I was just happy that I was able to go racing. If I went to class and passed all the tests, then I was going to be fine there. I just sometimes needed to take that test on a different day.”Throughout Gallagher’s career, his father has offered endless amounts of support. He described watching his son progress in his career as “real fun” and something that he’s been incredibly proud to witness.“I’ve seen people who, maybe their kids didn’t have the talent that Patrick did, and so to watch him with his natural talent to go right to the front of the pack, to always be at the front of the pack, was just something I didn’t expect,” Larry said. “He just had this natural ability and it made me feel good as a dad to be out there [with him].”Nearly eight months after Gallagher graduated from Ohio State, he had his big break, taking first place at the 2017 Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup. The winning scholarship was enough to book Gallagher a ticket into the International Motor Sports Association series, the most substantial move of his career thus far.With the help of a sponsorship from ModSpace, he joined a team with Multimatic Motorsports at the beginning of 2018 and has since been trying to leave his mark on the series.Even though he’s moved up, Gallagher said the sport still presents some distinctive challenges that are not found in other sports. During his first race in the IMSA series, his car, a GT4 Ford Mustang, broke down, setting him further back on the leaderboard. Still, Gallagher said, “It’s just part of the deal.”“We’re pushing these cars to their limits and sometimes they’re going to break. You’re in there and you’re disappointed, but it’s really no ones fault,” Gallagher said. “We’ll just learn from it and get better and go to the next [race]. That’s the way you have to look at it.”Despite the setbacks, Gallagher is determined to make a name for himself over the course of the season. On May 4, he will be returning to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Acura Sports Car Challenge. He hopes he can pull off a win for his hometown crowd and start climbing the ladder in the IMSA series.“The season hasn’t started out as we wanted it to, so right now [the goal is] to win races and we’ll see where we end up at the end of the year in the overall championship,” Gallagher said. “There’s some big names out there and [I want to] put mine alongside theirs and hopefully show that I belong.” read more

She stated Mrs. Gloag stated “I was happy to participate in Arc Minerals’ recent share placing in support of the Board’s growth plans including the development of the Zamsort copper cobalt project in Zambia. I have long believed in the regeneration of Africa through investment and commercial development and have supported this through both my charitable and commercial activities. My investment in Arc Minerals is fully aligned with this philosophy. I look forward to progress being reported over the coming months.”Arc Minerals recently announced that it has increased its stake in Zamsort Ltd to 49% from 14%.

first_img Mar 11th 2019, 6:11 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Monday 11 Mar 2019, 6:10 AM By Hayley Halpin Short URL WE’VE ALL COME together from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all different cultures to say to the government that it failed, it’s continuing to fail and we’re not going away. Following Saturday’s housing and homeless rally in Dublin, activists, politicians and members of the public are expected to gather in Cork city tonight participate in a demonstration over Ireland’s housing crisis. Crowds outside Leinster House in Dublin during a Raise the Roof protest in October Source: Niall Carson via PA ImagesSince last summer, the country has seen an increase in activists raising awareness over housing issues, as the rental crisis in Ireland deepens and homelessness continues to increase. Take Back The City (TBTC) over the summer held numerous protests in Dublin city centre, alongside a range of occupations of properties in the north inner city. In October, thousands of people gathered outside the Dáil for Ireland’s first ‘Raise the Roof’ protest over the government’s handling of the housing crisis. Raise the Roof is made up of a group of trade unions, housing activists and campaign groups. In December, thousands again turned out for a major rally held by the National Homeless and Housing Coalition (NHHC) in Dublin. Two days ago, the coalition held another rally, which saw people take to the streets again in anger. Today, ONE Cork and a number of other groups are coming together at 5pm outside Cork City Hall to hold the county’s first Raise the Roof protest, in the build up to a national rally in May.“It’s really a huge coming together of a multitude of different social groupings to try get the government to see sense and realise the reliance on the private sector is failing, has failed and will continue to fail,” Barry Murphy, housing spokesperson for One Cork and deputy general secretary of OPATSI said.  Crowds of housing protestors gathered outside government buildings on 30 October Source: Brian Lawless via PA ImagesMurphy noted that the housing crisis isn’t just a Dublin-centric issue, and that it’s an issue in towns and villages around the country, too. “This is a countrywide problem, it doesn’t only happen in the cities,” he said. The government really needs to get a grip and say we’re three years into Rebuilding Ireland … it hasn’t worked.  26 Comments center_img Share378 Tweet Email1 https://jrnl.ie/4529752 ‘This is a countrywide problem’: Cork activists to protest government’s handling of housing crisis Today’s demonstration comes after a major housing rally held in Dublin city over the weekend. Murphy also hit out at the recent homeless emergency accommodation figures for January, which showed that there are now a combined total of 9,987 people homeless and living in emergency accommodation in Ireland, a significant rise of 234 people from December.He raised the point that there is a large number of people who are homeless in Ireland who are not included in the monthly figures – meaning that the figure has, in reality, far surpassed 10,000.The monthly number recorded by the Department of Housing records only those in Section 10 funded emergency accommodation. More on that can be read here. “We have people who are homeless who are not even counted – people who are couchsurfing, we have overcrowded conditions with young families living with parents, we have people waiting eight to 10 years on the housing list,” Murphy said. “I think it’s appalling.”  Students at the Garden of Remembrance during October’s Raise the Roof rally Source: Leah Farrell via RollingNews.ieTonight’s rallyThe first Raise the Roof rally in October was held to coincide with a debate in the Dáil on a private members bill on housing drafted and signed by 47 TDs from Sinn Féin, People Before Profit, Solidarity, Social Democrats, Labour, the Green Party, Independents4Change and others.Murphy said that tonight’s protest is being held to call on the government to act on the motion which was passed in the Dáil in October. Similarly, speaking ahead of last Saturday, NHHC co-chairperson Tina MacVeigh told TheJournal.ie that the Dublin rally was being held to highlight that motion which called for “practical measures to be put into place which would at least put a block or a stop to the spiralling out of control of the housing crisis”. “The government have not listened and we need to be on the streets to say to the government the people spoke last year, not only on the streets but also through our elected representatives,” she said.“Our voices manifested in that motion, the Dáil voted for it, you are ignoring it. We will not be ignored.”Murphy added: “We’ve all come together from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all different cultures to say to the government that it failed, it’s continuing to fail and we’re not going away. Unless you take on board our suggestions, this is going to turn into a bigger movement than the water movement ever was.  11,948 Views last_img read more

Farewell Dimitri Gogos Obituary for a great publisher that the NK family

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Neos Kosmos family is saddened by the death of its founder Takis (Dimitri) Gogos on Monday, 20 May.He passed away peacefully at midday at the age of 88, marking the end of an era for the Greek community.Greek Australians will remember Mr Gogos as the man who created a newspaper that was established and nurtured on the dreams and challenges of immigrants who left Greece behind in pursuit of a better life in Australia.Born on 13 February 1931 on the island of Chios, his parents were refugees from Asia Minor. He grew up in Varvasi, with the exception of a brief stint in Cyprus. A graduate of the Kapodistrian High School of Chios, he worked in journalism parallel to his studies.In 1950 he migrated to Melbourne and worked at General Motors Holden and other factories before turning exclusively to journalism. He was the sole journalist for the ‘Australoellinas’ that circulated under difficult circumstances bearing the mind Australian laws that made it hard for a foreign progressive publication to be printed.READ MORE: Reflecting over 60 years of Neos KosmosHe founded Neos Kosmos newspaper on the date of his 26th birthday in 1957, alongside his long-term partners Nondas Pezaros. Christos Mourikis joined them later,Like the community, the publication has changed with the times to serve the needs of its readers. Its survival is due to the passion of Mr Gogos who showed great sensitivity to the downtrodden and would work to organise food kitchens for unemployed Greek immigrants and take other initiatives to help better people’s lot in life. He was also at the helm of many struggles for national matters and lobbied for the Greek community.During the Greek dictatorship, he contributed greatly to ensure visits to Australia by people like former prime minister Andreas Papandreou, composer Mikis Theodorakis and others involved in the resistance movement. He was active in ensuring the teaching of Modern Greek at the University of Melbourne and worked hard to ensure that Hellenism thrived in Australia.Dimitris Gogos with the Greek actress Jenny Karezis (cen tre) and Angela Koutropoulos during a night out in Melbourne in the 1970’s.Bob Hawke and Neos Kosmos publisher and founder Dimitri GogosDimitris Gogos with the Greek actress Jenny Karezis (cen tre) and Angela Koutropoulos during a night out in Melbourne in the 1970’s.A huge proponent of multiculturalism, Mr Gogos was proactive when it came to ensuring that proposals by Neos Kosmos were adopted by the Australian government. Many of the policies of Gough Whitlam in 1972 were suggestions made by Mr Gogos, and these proposals were later continued by Liberal PM Malcolm Fraser. It is no coincidence that the first license for 3EA radio station (a precursor to SBS) was published in the name of Dimitri Gogos. His efforts to ensure social welfare for immigrants as well as input in the creation of festivals such as Greek Week, and later Antipodes have ensured that Greek culture will continue to thrive for years to come.READ MORE: Happy Birthday Neos Kosmos! 62 years of serving the communityThroughout his life, he remained a man of conviction and his principles and humanitarian struggles never swerved. His presence has been an inspiration to us all at Neos Kosmos, and he leaves behind a legacy as far as social justice is concerned.He leaves behind his children, George, Tania and Christopher and their families.last_img read more

Quiring, Lentz lead county council races

first_img Conservative Republican Eileen Quiring took a lead in the race for Clark County Council chair, potentially imperiling the re-election prospects for incumbent Marc Boldt, an independent.In the District 1 race, newcomer Temple Lentz received a slightly larger share of the vote than the two seasoned politicians she was facing.Tuesday’s initial count shows Quiring, who currently represents District 4 on the council, leading with 26,028 votes or 37 percent. Eric Holt, a Democrat who’s never held political office, received 16,984 or 24 percent. Boldt received 16,010 votes, or nearly 23 percent.Under the state’s primary system, the two candidates with the most votes advance to the general election regardless of party affiliation.Boldt couldn’t be reached for comment after the results were announced.“I actually think that people believe I can be a better leader for the county,” said Quiring.Quiring said that she was “very, very pleased” with the early results and was looking forward to the final vote count. Holt said he was still waiting for a full vote count but was confident he’d “come in strong.”“We are excited to take on Quiring,” said Holt.He said that if the results hold, it spells good news for his campaign. Fellow Democrat Christy Stanley, who suspended her campaign and endorsed Holt, received 10,812 votes, or 15 percent of the vote. He said that in the general election he would likely pick up her share of the vote as well as some moderates who voted for Boldt.In the District 1 race, the initial vote count shows Lentz, a former county freeholder, leading with 5,240 votes, or nearly 34 percent. Incumbent Republican Jeanne Stewart received 5,136 votes, nearly 33 percent. Former Democratic state representative Jim Moeller received 4,974 votes, nearly 32 percent of the vote.

Government increases funding for industrial strategy to boost UKs productivity

first_imgAutumn Budget 2018: The government has announced increased investment for initiatives within its Industrial Strategy in order to improve productivity across the UK.Chancellor Philip Hammond (pictured) confirmed in his Autumn Budget 2018 speech, delivered at the House of Commons on Monday 29 October, that research and development will receive an additional £1.6 billion of funding. In addition, the Industrial Strategies Challenge Fund, which aims to support technologies of the future, will receive a £1.1 billion investment. This includes up to £121 million for the Made Smarter programme, which seeks to support the transformation of manufacturing through digitally-enabled technology, and up to £78 million for the Stephenson Challenge. This initiative supports innovation in electric motor technology.In alignment with this, Jason Furman, an American economist and professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, will lead a review of competition in the digital economy.To further raise productivity, the 2018 Budget also addresses management capabilities, based on the government’s work with the Be the Business movement and its findings from the Industrial Strategy Business Productivity Review. Therefore, the government will implement a Small Business Leadership Programme, delivered in partnership with business schools and leading organisations in England. In 2019-2020, 2,000 places will be delivered, with a target of training 10,000 individuals a year by 2025.As part of this commitment, the government will also invest £20 million in 2019-2020 to support local peer-to-peer networks focused on business improvement and invest up to £25 million in to the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships scheme, placing more than 200 additional graduates and academics with relevant skills into firms to translate their research insights into business growth.The government will further invest £235 million to support the development and commercialisation of quantum technologies; this includes up to £70 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and £35 million to aid a new national quantum computing centre. The government believes that a focus on these technologies could impact global issues, such as disease and climate change, by transforming capabilities in computing, sensing and communications.The Budget announcement also confirmed that the government will continue to explore the opportunities and utilisation of artificial intelligence (AI), as well as investigate how this technology and the data gathered can be used. To support this work, the government will invest up to £50 million in a new Turing AI Fellowships scheme, to bring the best global researchers in AI to the UK, and place an additional £100 million in an international fellowship scheme.The government will also invest £315 million to a new Industrial Energy Transformation Fund, to support businesses with high energy use to transition to a low carbon future and reduce their bills through increased energy efficiency.The Industrial Strategy aims to boost productivity by backing businesses to create good jobs and increase the earning power of people throughout the UK with investment in skills, industries and infrastructure.In his speech, Hammond said: “This time I will leave it to the Budget Red Book to set out more detail of the many measures we will take today, including our commitment to technology with £1.6 billion of new investments to support our modern industrial strategy, from nuclear fusion to quantum computing, and £150 million for fellowships to attract the brightest talent to these shores from around the world so that our scientific research continues to lead the world. And, our commitment to infrastructure, expanding the National Productivity Investment Fund once again, to over £38 billion by 2023-2024.”last_img read more

OBITUARY Anthony Tony DiFillippo 90

first_imgLYNNFIELD, MA — Anthony “Tony” DiFillippo died at 90 years of age on Tuesday, June 26 at his home, sleeping peacefully next to his wife of 65 years Jennie.Tony was a man of many passions – he loved his wife, his family, UniFirst Corp, and the “Boston” Patriots. He was a runner, a skier, and a consummate storyteller. Tony loved people…he came alive when he was deep in conversation with someone or better yet, in front of a crowd. His charisma and outgoing personality served him well in his career at UniFirst Corp [in Wilmington], where he started in 1951 working along side his brother in law Aldo Croatti. Tony was named President of UniFirst in 1986 and continued in that role until his retirement in 1995. But he wasn’t finished yet – he began serving on the UniFirst Board of Directors in 2002 and stayed for another 10 years. Tony truly loved UniFirst and was so proud of his son David, who is a Senior Vice President there. Tony taught his children the importance of taking the time to talk with people….and to remember their stories. He prided himself on knowing the names of UniFirst employees around the country, and he always remembered their stories. Tony had a way of lifting spirits…after talking with him people felt appreciated, and more importantly they felt respected. His son Steve, owner of Davio’s restaurants, credits his success as an entrepreneur to his father’s philosophy of how to run a business.Tony loved his work at UniFirst, but he also loved to spend time with his family. Jennie was the master cook and Tony, the master storyteller. They loved it when their house was full of people and unlike most of their peers, this included teenagers. Tony used to say that the best years of his life were when his sons played football at Lynnfield High School. He and Jennie never missed a game and often hosted the after-party for the players and fans alike. Their children’s friends were always welcome in their home and sometimes even on vacation. Tony loved hosting people at his home at Sugarloaf Mountain where he enjoyed skiing with his children, and then even more so with his grandchildren. He also loved spending time by the beach at Kennebunk where his family would gather each summer. When he was in Kennebunk Tony would run 5 miles/day rain or shine…only Hurricane Bob was ever able to keep him inside. Tony, Jennie and their family shared many happy times together in Maine skiing and going to the beach…Tony made sure he always had a place his children and grandchildren would want to visit.Tony and Jennie were world travelers but they did not start out that way. Growing up in Providence, RI, neither had ever traveled far from home. Tony’s first experience with travel was after his high school graduation in 1945, at the tail end of WW2. Tony enlisted in the Coast Guard and at 17 years of age, was stationed in Hawaii for the remainder of the war. Thanks to the GI Bill Tony was able to attend Bryant College, graduating in 1950 and becoming the first in his family to do so. It was at a Bryant College event where he first met Jennie Avila, and they married in 1953. While they were dating their travel was limited to either Boston where they would visit jazz clubs, or to Brockton where they would watch Tony’s favorite boxer Rocky Marciano train. They would eat Jennie’s homemade sandwiches on the ride, a habit they would continue with their children on family vacations. Tony and Jennie’s shared passion for travel continued throughout the course of their 65-year marriage, culminating in a 3 1/2-month cruise around the world when they were 80. They were the life of the ship – the party always began when Tony walked into the room. They went to the jazz show every evening and were on the tour every morning. They saw the Taj Mahal, they accidentally rode on a chairlift at an indoor ski area in Dubai, and they walked on the Great Wall of China (actually Tony fell off the Great Wall and had to be airlifted…it’s a long story). Their calls home were filled with laughter as Tony would recount the stories of their many adventures. Tony and Jennie were an inspiration to all who knew them, but especially to their children. They laughed together for 65 years….we will miss that laughter.Tony is survived by his beloved wife Jennie, his three children Donna DiFillippo (s. Michael Ruttner), David, DiFillippo (s. Doreen DiFillippo) and Steve DiFillippo (s. Pam Small), sister Marie Croatti, 10 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.A celebration of his life was held at Davio’s in Lynnfield on Sunday July 1 at 12:00. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Tony’s name to Lynnfield Athletic Boosters, c/o Lynnfield High School, 275 Essex St, Lynnfield, MA 01940.Anthony “Tony” DiFillippo(NOTE: The above obituary is from Mackey Funeral Home.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Former South American soccer boss mired in FIFA scandal

first_img“He knows the generic charges against him, but you have to understand that there are more than thirty people involved and no one has specified the involvement of each person,” lawyer Raul Barriocanal said during an interview with the AP, adding that his client was innocent.That the headquarters of the ruling confederation of soccer-mad South America, a continent whose teams have won a combined nine World Cups, was ever in Paraguay speaks to Leoz’s power.Surrounded by soccer and economic powerhouses Argentina and Brazil, the country is one of the poorest in the region. The corruption watchdog group Transparency International ranks it 150 out of 176 nations. In 1990s, Paraguay could not offer modern infrastructure, an efficient banking system or direct flights to Asuncion from other South American capitals.But Leoz, a real estate magnate involved in Paraguayan soccer decades before he became CONMEBOL’s president in 1986, could offer land donated by a municipality, as well as the promise that the affairs of the organization would be off-limits to authorities.For years, the organization’s headquarters rotated with its president, but in 1990 confederation heads voted to put it permanently in Asuncion. The building was dedicated in 1998, and the complex grew over the next decade. _______Associated Press writer Pedro Servin contributed to this report._______Luis Andres Henao on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LuisAndresHenaoCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Leoz, former president of CONMEBOL, lobbied Paraguay’s legislators in 1997 for the law making the headquarters exempt from legal intervention. The immunity includes protection from the kinds of raids that happened last week at the FIFA and CONCACAF headquarters in Switzerland and Miami, in the biggest corruption scandal in the history of the world’s most popular sport.Leoz, for decades essentially untouchable despite corruption allegations and now under house arrest, once bragged that only the Vatican enjoyed the same kind of “immunity and total privileges.”“The police can’t come in, nor can an investigating judge, nobody as long as this law is in force,” Leoz told Argentine sports daily Ole in 2012.But the era of grand privileges and immunity for the confederation appears to be coming to an end in this poor, landlocked nation of 6.8 million, where smuggling, corruption and tax evasion are endemic. Leoz, now 86, was one of 14 people indicted by the U.S. Justice Department last week on charges of bribery, racketeering and money-laundering.Eugenio Figueredo, who succeeded Leoz as CONMEBOL chief before becoming a FIFA vice president in 2014, was among the seven FIFA officials arrested last week in Zurich, along with vice president Rafael Esquivel of Venezuela. Leoz and Esquivel are fighting extradition to the U.S. Comments   Share   Leoz enjoys a Robin Hood status among some of his countrymen. He bought the Migone private hospital on the verge of bankruptcy in Asuncion in 2006, and helped improve a Catholic nun’s school.Edilberto Vera, a former head of the Sol de America club, recounted how his cousin was working for Leoz when he suffered a stroke. Leoz gave him a house and paid for a nurse.“If Leoz likes you, he’s going to care for you,” said Vera.Even after the previous corruption accusations, Leoz remained popular for bringing Paraguay international acclaim and providing jobs.Corruption is so widespread in Paraguay that the Leoz case will be interpreted as business as usual, said Fernando Masi, a senior economist at the Center for Analysis of the Paraguayan Economy.“Leoz’s image, arrested and possibly extradited, only worsens the image of a corrupt Paraguay,” said Masi.But to Aldo Benitez, a sports reporter at local ABC Color newspaper, the arrest and political will to scrap the immunity law represent turning points.Had Leoz died a month ago, “everyone would have been fighting to bestow awards on him and rename everything after him,” Benitez said. “He was completely omnipotent and CONMEBOL could not be touched. Not anymore.” Sponsored Stories Top Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall According to the U.S. indictment, Leoz, Figueredo and other CONMEBOL officials accepted $110 million in bribes from a marketing company in exchange for the rights to four editions of Copa America, the South America national team tournament, which starts Thursday in Chile.Interpol has added Leoz to its most wanted list as the U.S. seeks to extradite him. On Wednesday, the lower house of Paraguay’s Congress voted to overturn the immunity law, a stunning development considering the close ties that Leoz has traditionally kept with lawmakers. The bill, which President Horacio Cartes says he supports, now goes to the Senate.Hugo Rubin, a lower house member who submitted the bill, said Paraguayans were proud of having the CONMEBOL headquarters, and lawmakers at the time, less than a decade after the end of a dictatorship, believed the immunity law would provide extra protection.“Today we realize that was a mistake that might have helped orchestrate many (financial) irregularities, which I imagine could be uncovered when the immunity law is lifted,” Rubin told The Associated Press, also expressing concern that Paraguay could lose the headquarters.Leoz, who has had four heart bypass surgeries, was released earlier this week from a private hospital that he owns. He was being treated for high blood pressure. Police cars stand guard outside his home in a wealthy neighborhood of Asuncion. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facilitycenter_img Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) — The power that Nicolas Leoz had as the long-time leader of South American football is captured by a plaque in front of the headquarters of his previously impenetrable soccer kingdom.Inscribed in four sentences is the local law that gives legal immunity — similar to that of an embassy — to the confederation headquarters that sits on a 100-acre complex on the outskirts of Asuncion, and includes a five-star luxury hotel, large convention center and heliport.

Leoz, former Conmebol president and former FIFA executive member, was indicted in a bribery and money-laundering scheme in a FIFA investigation. Leoz has said he’ll fight a U.S. extradition order. (AP Photo/Jorge Saenz) “Leoz is the Paraguayan who had the most success in the 20th century,” said Horacio Galeano, a former education minister. “More than any actor, singer or soccer player. So this is all very delicate, because it has caused the fall of a Paraguayan legend.”In 2008, Leoz was identified during a Swiss criminal trial as having received $130,000 in payments from FIFA’s former marketing partner ISL, which folded in 2001 with debts of around $300 million.“These payments were apparently made via front companies in order to cover up the true recipient and are to be qualified as ‘commissions’, known today as ‘bribes’,” said a report published by FIFA in 2012.In 2013, Leoz acknowledged that he had received the money in 2000, and said it had been used it to build schools in a $1 million project for indigenous children in the northwestern El Chaco Boreal region.“Those schools have been built,” Barriocanal said.Amid the growing scandal, Leoz resigned as head of the confederation and as a member of FIFA’s executive committee in 2013, citing health reasons. FIFA reprimanded Leoz but didn’t penalize him.Leoz began his career as a sports journalist on radio in the 1940’s. Graduating with a law degree, in the 1950’s he briefly worked as a court clerk and then took over the family’s real estate business while getting involved in soccer as president of Libertad, a first-division club that was crowned champion under his helm in 1976. 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving soberlast_img read more

Trulia Home Affordability Outpaces Rental Costs

first_imgTrulia: Home Affordability Outpaces Rental Costs Agents & Brokers Home Prices Home Sales Housing Affordability Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Rates Processing Service Providers Unemployment Valuation 2011-08-16 Ryan Schuette in Data, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Sharecenter_img August 16, 2011 473 Views Volatile markets and low home sales are colluding to force mortgage rates to historic lows and sellers to mark off home prices, making actual home purchases less expensive than renting in cities across the United States. Buying a home fell below renting costs in 74 percent of the country’s 50 largest cities over July, with 12 percent of cities seeing higher price tags for apartments than for houses, according to real estate Web site “”Trulia””:http://www.trulia.com/.[IMAGE]Peak numbers for home affordability make closing on rates a better deal than signing an apartment lease in states from Nevada to Texas. Las Vegas takes the top position, registering a 6 home price-to-rent ratio for the real estate Web site. Detroit, Fresno, and Mesa follow, each with 7. Arlington finishes among these cities as the fifth best for home purchases relative to apartment costs.Where is leasing an apartment still cheaper than obtaining the mortgage financing to buy a house? Renter-rich New York City tops a five-member list with a 36 home price-to-rent ratio. Fort Worth and Omaha follow at 32 and 27, respectively. Fleet-footed cities Seattle and San Francisco take last place on the renters’ list with 24 each.[COLUMN_BREAK]Commenting on the numbers, Ken Shuman, Trulia’s head of communications, said in a “”statement””:http://info.trulia.com/index.php?s=43&item=129, “”While recent stock market volatility on top of the slow economic recovery makes homebuyers nervous, it has not destroyed the American dream of homeownership. However, prospective homebuyers, who are ready and qualified to buy, face an uphill battle despite falling home prices and record-low mortgage rates.””Today, many banks are actually less enthusiastic about approving residential mortgage applications, which has dragged out the home buying process,”” he added. “”Until a middle ground on lending practices can be met, many highly-qualified buyers may be forced to be renters by choice for now.””According to Trulia, foreclosure gluts keep a heel on home purchases, with capital pockets created by foreign buyers forcing spikes by some 112 percent in price-to-rent ratios for cities like Miami. Banks eager to pile their empty homes onto homebuyers, meanwhile, inspired price-to-rent fluctuations over the past two quarters, with Miami seeing the least change in homebuyer prospects and Detroit netting a 39-percent change.Shuman offers advice to homebuyers in the middle of decisions about prices and rentals.””Many aspiring homeowners are on the fence about renting and buying in today’s market. Should they take advantage of falling home prices and low borrowing costs, or should they continue to rent until the economy stabilizes?”” he asks. “”Price alone should never be the sole factor in deciding to purchase a home.””last_img read more

Works overrun causes chaos for morning traffic

first_imgHeavy traffic choked the centre of Nicosia on Friday morning as more roads were closed due to ongoing work for the creation of the new Eleftheria Square.People got stuck trying to get to work as Constantinos Palaiologou street was closed from Thermopylon street to Ochi square. Work was supposed to have been completed overnight with the road to re-open at 6am, however it was still not open to traffic three hours later.A municipality spokesman on Friday morning said it took longer than expected to cement the central staircase of the square as it is a complicated process.The works are expected to be completed by now, he said at 9.30am.But drivers expressed their anger. “It was absolute madness, cars were backed up Makarios Avenue all the way to the Hilton,” Petros Petrou said.“It took me 25 minutes to drive a distance that normally takes less than five,” added Maria Protopapa.You May LikeRefinance GoldChris Martin & Dakota Johnson Make Their Relationship Official On Thanksgiving – Did You Know How Far Apart Their Age Is?Refinance GoldUndoLilAnswer5 Early Signs of A Heart Stroke You Should Know!LilAnswerUndoRelocation Target11 Of The Most Remote Places on EarthRelocation TargetUndo Two days of music to dance toUndoFilm review: Child’s Play ***UndoVerstappen wins crazy German Grand PrixUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

14 per cent of Cypriot children have unmet medical needs

first_imgIn Cyprus in 2017, 1.4 per cent of children aged below the age of 16 had medical needs that were not treated, slightly lower than the EU average of 1.8 per cent.Perhaps surprisingly, the highest share of children with unmet medical needs was reported in Belgium (8.7 per cent). Romania was in second place (7.4 per cent), followed by Sweden (4.3 per cent), Finland (3.3 per cent) and Czechia (2.7 per cent).In contrast, the lowest percentages were found to be in Austria (close to 0.0 per cent), Germany (0.1 per cent), and Hungary (0.2 per cent), while another five countries, Spain, Croatia, Malta, Slovakia and Portugal also had scores of less than one per cent.In 2017, 2.3 per cent of children below 16 in the EU did not receive dental care that they needed. Cyprus scored slightly higher than the average, with 3.1 per cent.The highest share of children with unmet needs for dental care was reported in Latvia (7.3 per cent), followed by Portugal (6 per cent), Spain and Romania (both 5.7 per cent).However, in seven member states this rate dropped to less than 1 per cent, in Hungary, Croatia, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Austria and Slovakia.The information for the report was gathered by interviewing one member of a household that included at least one child aged 15 or below.“Children’s medical and dental needs can be unmet due to various reasons, such as inability to afford the treatment, long waiting lists, long travel times or no means of transport, or lack of time because of work or caring for family members or others,” the report explained.Just ten days ago another Eurostat report on children’s health was published.It was reported that some 98 per cent of Cypriot children were deemed to be in good health in 2017, compared with the EU average of 95 per cent.You May LikeSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

the state of North Dakota receiving $3 million and Grand Forks County getting $772662 Hanson saidThe concept of the program is a "housing first" option Hanson said meaning that because housing is the first and only concern on the minds of chronically homeless people by removing that concern they can return to being stable members of society Hanson said the apartment complex will also host services such as job training and therapy to help people get back on their feet"Once they know where they will spend the night the can work on their other issues" Hanson saidCity Administrator Todd Feland said the project has received preliminary approval from the City Council but that a final vote will be taken in September City Planner Ryan Brooks said that because the apartment complex is being built on a parking lot currently used by the Police Department the police lot may have to move into the space occupied by a skatepark and the skatepark will likely be movedFeland said the lot has an appraised value of $325000 which the Housing Authority will pay for He hopes the city can use some of that money to pay for improvements to the former skatepark lot and to the skatepark itself when the equipment finds a new homeThe "ingredient" was a nod to the passion bakers put into their product and wink to fans of the snack As the Concord bakery’s Twitter account shows the business has a sense

bakery can say there’s love in it and it puts a smile on people’s face"But the Food and Drug Administration didn’t see it that way A human emotion it said cannot be an ingredient in baked goodsThe FDA published a warning letter to the bakery on Tuesday which told the bakery to stop claiming that its granola contains love:Gates said the letter "just felt so George Orwell""Situations like that where the government is telling you you can’t list ‘love’ as an ingredient because it might be deceptive just feels so silly" he told BloombergWhile the bakers may have poured love into their granola they might have gone a little light on careThe FDA also noted numerous code violations at the bakery such as a single unspecified one-inch-long "crawling insect" in the pastry area among the "focaccia breads 7-Grain rolls and brioche rolls" It also listed a few mislabeled products and other sanity violationsThe agency said that the use of "love" as an ingredient was not "among the agency’s top concerns"It "expects the company to correct the serious violations found on FDA’s inspection as noted in the warning letter" the agency said in a statement to BloombergAuthor Information: Travis M
