India can boost exports of 300 products to US China amid trade

first_imgNew Delhi: The ongoing trade war between the US and China offers an opportunity to India for boosting exports of as many 350 products such as chemicals and granite to these countries, a study by the Commerce Ministry has said. The identification of these products is part of a study carried out by the ministry which states that the ongoing tariff or customs duties war between the US and China proves a big window of opportunity for enhancing India’s exports to these two nations.

According to the study, as much 151 domestic products including diesel, X-ray tubes and certain chemicals have an outright advantage to displace the US exports to China. Similarly, 203 Indian goods like rubber and graphite electrodes have the advantage to displace Chinese exports to the US. It said that the specific products in which India can potentially expand exports to China immediately based on its strengths and available market access in the neighbouring country and also those in which concerted efforts need to be made to acquire market access are being shared with the line ministries.

The Indian products which can tap the Chinese market include copper ores, rubber, paper/paperboard, equipment for transmission voice/data in a wired network, tunes and pipes. Similarly, domestic goods which can grab exports opportunities in the US market include industrial valves, vulcanised rubber, carbon or graphite electrodes and natural honey. Increasing exports would help India narrow the widening trade deficit with China, which stood at $50.12 billion during April-February 2018-19. Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) President Ganesh Kumar Gupta said that the trade war between the US and China is benefitting India. He has said that India’s exports to the US went up by 11.2 per cent in 2018 and to China by 31.4 per cent in the same year. Echoing the views, Ludhiana-based exporter and former FIEO president S C Ralhan said enormous opportunities are there in the engineering and machinery sector in both the countries and “we have to tap that”.last_img read more

Morocco to Renovate the Jewish Quarter of Marrakech

Rabat – In an effort to support cultural heritage and sustainable tourism development, Moroccan authorities have launched a conservation plan for the ancient medina of Marrakech.The conservation plan, which will be jointly financed by the Ministry of Housing and the Urban district of Marrakec, will cost an estimated MAD316 million, according to L’Economiste.The project includes renovating fondouks in the ancient medina, the Jewish quarter known as the Mellah, as well as public squares and reconstruction of buildings and neighborhoods. The rehabilitation of the Jewish quarter, once inhabited by Jewish communities who mixed with the locals and later by Sephardic Jews who escaped persecution in Spain, will cost an estimated MAD194 million. It was built in the sixteenth century under the reign of Moulay Abdallah.Since the establishment of the State of Israel, most Jews have emigrated and left their homes, trading booths and shops. Nowadays Mellahs in Marrakech and across the kingdom are inhabited by Muslims and they have become historical places for tourists to visit while in Morocco.Spreading over 16 hectares, the Mellah in the ancient medina of Marrakech is surrounded by fortified high walls that used to separate the Jewish and Muslim communities.Authorities are also planning to undertake safeguarding actions regarding houses threatened with collapse, the rehabilitation of around sixty houses and the demolishing of another twenty.The conservation plan will also compensate residential owners and occupiers in the Jewish quarter who will be affected by property demolition and construction work. read more

Disney to launch streaming services for movies live sports

In this Monday, Aug. 7, 2017, photo, The Walt Disney Co. logo appears on a screen above the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The Walt Disney Co. reports earnings, Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017. (AP Photo/Richard Drew) Disney to launch streaming services for movies, live sports NEW YORK, N.Y. – With new streaming services in the works, Disney is trying to set itself up for a future that’s so far largely been framed by Netflix: stuff I want to watch, when I want it.The Magic Kingdom is launching its own streaming service for its central Disney and Pixar brands and another for live sports. That would allow it to bypass the cable companies it relies on — and Netflix — to charge consumers directly for access to its popular movies and sporting events.“They’re bringing the future forward. What they talked about were things that looked inevitable, at some point,” said Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Weiser. What’s less clear is if Disney will be able to make big bucks from it, he said.This is important as the decline in cable households and the shift to smaller, cheaper bundles pressures the profitability of Disney’s cable networks. Fewer subscribers and fewer viewers mean less money. In the nine months through July 1, cable networks’ operating income fell 13 per cent from the year before, to $4.12 billion.KID STUFFStarting in 2019, the only subscription streaming service with new animated and live-action Disney and Pixar movies will be the Magic Kingdom’s own app. That will include “Toy Story 4” and the sequel to the huge hit “Frozen.” Older movies will be there too, as well as shows from TV channels Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD, and original TV and films. That could be hugely attractive for families with young children in the U.S.Disney is ending an exclusive earlier movie deal with Netflix, and the streaming giant’s shares tumbled in after-hours trading. Netflix today has grown into an entertainment juggernaut in its own right, however, as it focuses more on its own exclusive programming.Netflix already seemed to be bracing for the potential loss of the Disney movie rights earlier this week when it announced its first-ever acquisition — the purchase of Millarworld , a comic book publishing company that will develop films and kids shows based on its portfolio of character.Disney might bring more of its properties — particularly its Marvel superheroes and the Star Wars franchise — under its wing, and could even offer them as separate streaming services. CEO Robert Iger said Disney is considering whether it should continue licensing Marvel and Star Wars movies to outside services like Netflix, move them into the Disney app or develop individual services for them.The Disney service will be available in “multiple markets” outside the U.S. as well, taking advantage of Disney’s global name recognition.SPORTSDisney had already said it would be launching a streaming ESPN service. It’s not meant to compete with the company’s TV channels.The sports service is coming in early 2018, a little later than previously announced, and will air baseball, hockey and soccer games, tennis matches and college sports through ESPN’s popular mobile app. Notably, ESPN will not be streaming pro football or basketball, at least initially.Customers will also be able to buy fuller streaming packages from the baseball, hockey and soccer leagues, and watch them on the ESPN app.“Ultimately, we envision this will become a dynamic sports marketplace that will grow and be increasingly customizable, allowing sports fans to pick and choose content that reflects their personal interests,” Iger said on a conference call with analysts.Disney will have to be careful that it doesn’t transfer too much sports programming from its TV channels to the app. Getting the balance wrong could upset cable companies and weigh on the price they pay Disney for ESPN, Weiser said.THE BACK ENDTo roll out its streaming services, The Walt Disney Co. is taking majority control of BAMTech, the streaming arm of Major League Baseball, for $1.6 billion. It now owns 75 per cent of the company.The acquisition and the new services will be “an entirely new growth strategy” for Disney, Iger said.The new streaming services will likely “accelerate the erosion” of Disney’s TV networks, especially if other major cable networks make similar moves, said Moody’s analyst Neil Begley.But Iger argues that BAMTech gives Disney “optionality” if the cable ecosystem changes further, Iger said on a conference call with analysts Tuesday. If there’s greater “erosion” — say, if more people drop cable bundles or choose cheaper bundles without key Disney channels — the company has more ways to get its entertainment directly to customers, Iger said.He said there are no current plans to sell the Disney or ESPN TV channels directly to customers on the apps.But having a direct relationship with customers tells Disney exactly what they’re watching, giving it powerful tools and information that could help feed decision-making and, on the sports side, sell advertising.___AP technology writer Michael Liedtke contributed to this story from San Francisco. by Tali Arbel, The Associated Press Posted Aug 8, 2017 3:10 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 8, 2017 at 6:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

TMAC getting close to planned Hope Bay gold recoveries with additional gravity

first_imgTMAC, the owner operator of the Hope Bay high grade gold operation in Nunavut, began the process of ramping up the processing plant in June 2018 when the second concentrator line began commissioning. The company has managed a steady increase in throughput, including 1,385 t per day on average for the third quarter, and the plant has now exceeded expectations for the pace of ramp up with an average of 1,900 t/d being processed in October. The October performance has been achieved in a month where there has been extensive construction activity in the plant related to the installation of additional gravity concentrators and substantial related upgrades and reconfiguration.The processing plant is equipped with two 1,000 t/d Gekko Python lines (pre-concentrator lines) containing secondary crushing, grinding, flotation and gravity gold recovery equipment. The pythons are fed by a primary jaw crusher. A concentrate treatment plant (CTP) then processes the gravity and flotation products. TMAC says it is completing the installation of additional gravity concentrators in the plant. Two FLSmidth Knelson XD20s have been installed to capture fine gravity recoverable gold in the concentrate treatment side of the plant (the CTP) regrind circuit. Their installation included the reconfiguration of the inline pressure jigs and spinners to the CTP in recirculation with the screening circuit, with those changes completed by the end of October.The successful Sepro Falcon SB400s in each of the concentrator lines are being upgraded to Falcon SB1350s, which are being installed in November. The Falcon SB1350s will enable the plant to treat the entire flow within the primary grinding circuit, rather than solely the recirculating load. Two Falcon C2000s, which are expected to scavenge gravity recoverable gold and sulphides from the cyclone overflow feeding the flotation cells thereby further reducing losses to tailings, are expected to be online by the end of November. The surge bins for each of the concentrator lines, currently in fabrication, will be installed before the end of the year to add further stability to plant operations; this is the last significant planned modification. TMAC maintains its expectation that recoveries of at least 90% will be achieved by the end of the year with the completion of these plant modifications.last_img read more

Future of Greek community groups positive and bright

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A recent letter to the editor at Neos Kosmos wrote how much joy and enrichment he felt by his weekly attendance at his local club in Coburg. Equally he thanked in the gracious tone his sincere appreciation for the work undertaken by the Moreland Greek community.The above letter highlighted to me that the role of community groups in Victoria is complex and meaningful.Each community group has a purpose.The Argosorestikon community group valued the need to perpetuate their name through the work of another community group such as the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne.Equally, the Springvale community group hosts a Friday night of live entertainment where the board undertakes all of the cooking and service. While the Broadmeadows Greek community offers a free luncheon on Tuesdays for local Greeks.When the Greek Community of Melbourne announced it would seek to build a 15 story cultural centre, 70 different community groups undertook fundraising, concerts, dinners, and embraced this cause. Equally, when 3XY sought to raise funds for the victims of the fires at Mati, I was impressed (but not surprised) at how many community groups donated funds.So when we talk about where the communities will be in 10 or 20 years from now, the answer is undoubtedly a positive and bright one. The filotimo and deep cultural practices of those who currently serve on these boards will ensure progress and survival.This is because we are always finding ways to help one another and to come together. It is something that is inherit in us as Greeks, but also inherit in all of us as humans to seek contact.Hence I sense a bright future for the community groups in Melbourne. We are an evolving community that continues to offer new leaders and exciting initiative.When I was at university 25 years ago, I imagined that NUGAS was at its zenith. Equally, the former president of the Greek community of Melbourne, Mr Fountis who gave so much of his time to the organisation, would have also believed 20 years ago that his organisation was at its peak. However, when I look at the thousands of people today who attend the NUGAS functions and the extensive programs offered by the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne then none of us can be sure that we are at the zenith or height of our communities’ actions and activities.The Archdiocese Christmas carols last week demonstrated all of this when thousands attended and many hundreds were unable to be accommodated and waited patiently outside the Melbourne Town Hall.So without doubt, our communities’ futures are bright. More importantly they will prosper without us (meaning those of us who are currently servicing these groups) because much of what we do rests within our cultural practices which we consciously and sub-consciously pass on to those that follow.last_img read more

Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce gains living wage accreditation

first_imgIndependent business network Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) has been accredited as a living wage employer by the Living Wage Foundation.As part of the accreditation, the organisation, which is part of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), has committed to pay both its direct employees and any third-party contracted staff at least the voluntary living wage rate of £8.75 an hour.The living wage is an independently set hourly rate of pay that is calculated according to the basic costs of living. It is paid on a voluntary basis by employers and is updated annually. The living wage rate was raised on 5 November 2017 to be set at £8.75 an hour for employees working across the UK, and at £10.20 an hour for staff that are based in London. The higher London living wage rate is to reflect the increased living costs associated with residing in the capital.The voluntary living wage is distinct from the statutory national minimum wage, which is paid to employees aged 25 and over. The national minimum wage rate is currently set at £7.50 an hour.GBCC’s accreditation this week correlates with Living Wage Week, which is running between 5 and 11 November 2017.Gemma Fiddler, head of HR at GBCC, said: “Inherent in our core values is the recognition given to the contribution of our employees in achieving our business objectives and continued growth [and] success.“[While] in practice we have been a real living wage employer for some time, formal accreditation from the Living Wage Foundation acknowledges [and] recognises the value we place on our employees and the work that they do. It also extends our commitment to ensuring our third-party contract staff receive a fair rate of pay for a fair days’ work. Accreditation as a living wage employer will hopefully strengthen our position as a responsible employer and employer of choice, whereby we are able to recruit and retain the best talent.”last_img read more

Forbes Launches a Book Imprint

first_img A merging of complementary offerings, the partnership forms the next logical pillar in Forbes’ portfolio of products, which includes the eponymous biweekly magazine, website, research, and native advertising platform BrandVoice, Nina La France, Forbes’ SVP of consumer marketing and business development tells Folio:. In a bid to diversify the bottom line by adding another revenue stream to the mix — the mark of a healthy, or at least proactive, media company in 2016 — Forbes Media is entering the book business. Forbes and book publisher Advantage Media Group announced this week the launch of ForbesBooks, a new imprint aimed at marrying Advantage’s book publishing inroads with Forbes’ brand recognition, distribution channels, and cross-platform audience.  “ForbesBooks authors are entrepreneurs, innovators, CEOs, and business owners,” Adam Witty, Advantage’s founder and CEO, adds. “Allowing them to hold the copyright gives them the freedom and flexibility to monetize their work beyond just book sales by using their work to stimulate business development and lead generation, speaking opportunities, and consulting engagements; ancillary product creation.” Forbes Media declined to provide information on the actual revenue breakdown between Forbes, Advantage, and the authors themselves, but one interesting facet of the partnership is that authors themselves will retain copyright. A ForbesBooks editorial team will operate in-house at Advantage, with Forbes offering “general oversight,” which consists of brand standards and guidelines as well as marketing support, says La France, but the real punch behind the Forbes end of the partnership will be access to its various media channels. ForbesBooks authors will essentially be given the media brand as a platform to promote their writing and thought leadership through a dedicated blog on Forbes.com (48 million unique monthly visitors) as well as promotion on the site, in the print magazine, and approximately two-dozen newsletters. Forbes may be an old dog, but the 99-year-old brand is no stranger to new tricks. “This deal is the result of many conversations with Advantage Media Group and its founder, Adam Witty, that led us to see synergies we believe will be the foundation of a productive relationship,” says La France. “Forbes sees adding a book imprint to its business as a unique growth opportunity in the marketplace. This expansion is in line with our strategy to diversify revenue streams and expand our global reach.”last_img read more

And then there was light

first_imgFestival season is around the corner as is the wedding season. And everyone likes making their homes look good, not just now, all year around! Here are some brilliant tips from Retesh Sharma, Managing Director, Zynna on how to best light up your home in the party season. Whether inside or outside, lights are key to making a house a home.You wouldn’t want a bright overhead light shining down on an intimate dinner party or a single lamp lighting a space where you’re trying to do a project. The main goal of lighting design is to introduce varying degrees of light into a room, which are called layers. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’If you only have direct light sources, it will make a space feel dark and gloomy. And if you light the room evenly with no contrast, the room will appear flat and uninviting. Lighting is all about creating interest and visual drama, and these layers of light are parts of the whole that create the ultimate ambiance.Some party occasions call for bright light, but a party isn’t one of them. Your guests will feel relaxed and comfortable if the lights are a bit dimmer than usual. Consider keeping overhead lights turned off, relying instead on lamps, sconces and other light sources. This creates an intimate atmosphere, encouraging everyone to open up and socialize. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixYour home is already full of light fixtures – pendants, sconces, lamps, and chandeliers. Dress them up for the party.  Hang ornaments from ceiling fixtures so they catch the light. Wind greenery and berry branches around a pendant light’s cord or around the branches of a chandelier.Candles add personal touch to the evening. The natural radiance coming from candles sets up the mood as soon as one enters the party. Besides adding light and sparkle, candles come in beautiful varieties of perfumes.  These also add up and create mood lighting.last_img read more

1973 killing prompts extradition request

first_imgNo related posts. SANTIAGO, Chile – A Chilean court on Wednesday asked the United States to extradite a former Chilean military officer accused in the 1973 killing of a folk singer in the coup that brought Augusto Pinochet to power.Pedro Pablo Barrientos Núñez, a retired colonel, has been accused of taking part in the killing of musician Victor Jara on Sept. 16, 1973, as part of the putsch that brought the right-wing general to power.On Wednesday, the second chamber of the Chilean Supreme Court asked Washington to hand over Barrientos Núñez be tried for “voluntary manslaughter.”Besides being a singer, Jara was a leftist political activist. Immediately after the 1973 coup, he was among many Chileans who were taken to a football stadium where they were tortured and executed. Jara was shot 44 times.This is the first time a Chilean court has sought to prosecute any suspects in the killing of the pacifist singer – a crime that became emblematic of the bloody Pinochet dictatorship that left more than 3,000 people dead.The court decision to seek the extradition of Barrientos Núñez, who is believed to live in Florida, was unanimous.It classifies the killing as a crime against humanity and asserts the “absolute” necessity of prosecuting the perpetrators.The only remaining formality is for the foreign ministry to send the U.S. a written request for the extradition. The two countries have a bilateral extradition treaty.A lawyer for the plaintiffs, Nelson Caucoto, welcomed the court decision, saying, “this resolution responds to the expectations we had founded.”Caucoto told reporters he expected the U.S. to “give the green light” to the investigation.But Barrientos Núñez has told a Chilean television channel that he had nothing to do with the crime.“I don’t have to face justice, because I didn’t kill anyone,” he said. “I’ve never been to Chile, I don’t know it, and I didn’t know who the singer Jara was at the time.”In late December, a Chilean judge ordered the arrest of eight former military officials and charged them in Jara’s death as direct participants or accomplices.Barrientos Núñez is the only one of those eight who lives outside Chile.

first_img TORONTO – A former CTV News reporter facing sexual misconduct allegations is suing the broadcaster, its parent company and the woman who levelled the accusations against him.Paul Bliss, whose departure from CTV was announced last month, claims Bridget Brown defamed him with her allegations and CTV further defamed him by broadcasting and publishing stories about his suspension from the network in January.Bliss’ suit, which also targets four unidentified CTV journalists, seeks $7.5 million in damages.“The defamatory words have created damaging speculation respecting Mr. Bliss and his ability to interact and work with people and has lowered his reputation in the general public,” his statement of claim said.CTV refused to comment on the lawsuit, which was filed in a Toronto court this week.Brown, who describes herself as a Calgary-based entrepreneur and former CTV employee, said her legal team was reviewing Bliss’ suit.“I find virtually everything in the statement of claim to be false,” she said. “We have some time for our response and have not compiled one yet, nor any potential statements of claim of our own that we may decide to file.”Brown alleged in a January blog post that “an award-winning CTV reporter and anchor” had, in 2006, showed her to his office, began kissing her, pushed her head down to signal that he wanted oral sex, and exposed himself to her.Brown’s original blog post did not name Bliss, but left “no doubt” that he was the man being described, Bliss said in his statement of claim. Brown also later told CTV that Bliss was the man her post referred to, the claim said.Bliss denied Brown’s accusations in his statement of claim and said the pair engaged in a consensual encounter.CTV suspended Bliss, a veteran reporter who worked at its bureau at the Ontario legislature, shortly after Brown’s allegations came to light.Bliss claimed in his suit that the network broadcast and published “false, malicious, irresponsible” stories about his suspension and subsequent departure from the network — which the suit described as a termination.The statement of claim further says CTV’s coverage should have noted that Brown’s blog says the details of her online post were adapted from a memoir she is writing, which will be published in 2019.“Brown had an ulterior motive (in making the allegations), being the publication of her intended book,” Bliss said in the claim.None of the allegations have been proven in court.
