The Brexit conundrum is defeating Britains political system

LONDON — British lawmakers had to be sent home in mid-debate this month when water from a burst pipe began gushing into the House of Commons chamber. That image perfectly illustrates Parliament’s problem as it tries to solve the puzzle of Brexit.On the outside, the U.K. institution is resplendent, a world-famous symbol of democracy sitting majestically on the River Thames. Inside, it’s decrepit and increasingly unfit for use.The hidden flaws in Britain’s political system have been laid bare — and televised worldwide — since voters chose, almost three years ago, to leave the European Union.Decision-making has ground to a standstill, even as business leaders and residents alike cry out for certainty. Many Britons — including politicians — feel a mix of frustration, fascination and shame at the ongoing chaos.Jill Lawless, The Associated Press read more

UN helping Central African Republic face serious challenges envoy says

7 July 2011The United Nations is sparing no effort to assist the Central African Republic (CAR) in confronting serious challenges, including poverty, corruption and impunity, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in that country told the Security Council today. The United Nations is sparing no effort to assist the Central African Republic (CAR) in confronting serious challenges, including poverty, corruption and impunity, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in that country told the Security Council today.Margaret Vogt, who heads the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the Central African Republic (BINUCA) told the 15-member body that, despite the gains made in recent years, the country still faces “serious” challenges. “It is afflicted with extreme poverty, weak national institutions, corruption, a high rate of violent crime perpetrated by armed movements and brigands, human rights violations and impunity,” she stated, as she presented Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s latest report on the activities of her office.“The United Nations system spared no effort in providing timely and integrated support to the Government and people of the Central African Republic in addressing these challenges,” she added. CAR completed legislative and presidential elections in January and March and last month signed a ceasefire agreement with the Convention of Patriots for Justice and Peace (CPJP), the only armed group not to have signed the June 2008 Libreville Comprehensive Peace Agreement. Ms. Vogt took note of the Government’s actions on political reform, poverty reduction, ceasefire agreements, and the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) of ex-combatants, and urged continued international assistance for those efforts. CAR, she said, “is at the crossroads of critical conflict zones, impacted by insecurity from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Sudan, with the possibility of an upsurge of insecurity across the Sudanese border as the country grapples with security challenges that would necessarily attend the creation of the new state of South Sudan.”South Sudan becomes independent from the rest of the country on Saturday, following a referendum staged in January.Ms. Vogt highlighted what the Secretary-General called the “dire” situation of women and children in CAR and said she was planning to establish a protection unit within BINUCA to “help coordinate these issues.”In a statement to the press after her briefing, Council members welcomed the Government’s commitment to fight corruption, its plans to increase DDR, the signing of the peace agreements, and the signing of a tripartite agreement between CAR, Chad and Sudan, but added that they were “concerned by the dire humanitarian situation.”The members “underline the importance of continuing to ensure the security of refugees, internal displaced persons and humanitarian personnel before a political solution to security concerns in the region can make their voluntary return possible,” the statement added.“They encourage the Central African authorities and the politico-military groups to play an active role in the prevention of human rights abuses.” The UN withdrew its peacekeeping operation from CAR and Chad last year at the end of its mandate, and has since concentrated on civilian peacebuilding efforts, including promoting reconciliation, supporting the DDR process, electoral assistance, reforming the security sector and helping efforts to restore State authority throughout the country. read more

Loblaw tests out new smaller discount grocery store format in Calgary

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Canada’s largest grocer is trying out a new discount small-store format in a bid to attract more customers in urban areas.Loblaw Cos. Ltd. (TSX:L) said it opened the new 10,000-square foot store a few weeks ago in Calgary.The location, named Box by No Frills, offers “hard discounts and an everyday low price” on groceries and other merchandise, Sarah Davis, Loblaw’s chief financial officer said in a conference call Wednesday.“We are trying that as a pilot to see, ‘Is it something that we can infill in a lot of areas of Canada because it’s only 10,000 square feet?’ ” she told investors from the company’s Brampton, Ont., headquarters.Loblaw’s discount chain of stores, No Frills, are typically 25,000 square feet. The company also operates a number of other banners, including Real Canadian Superstore, which has a large format and wide range of general merchandise in addition to groceries.The new Box format is being tested as the company creates one of Canada’s largest commercial real estate trusts with its grocery property assets, and prepares for stiffer competition from Target, Wal-Mart Canada and Sobey’s, which recently announced a $5.8-billion deal to buy Safeway Inc. in Western Canada.Davis said if the small-box format is successful, the grocery chain will buy new property to develop them into more locations under the Box banner.“From that perspective, it’s not reformating properties that have gone into the REIT, but trying out new formats with new real estate,” said Davis.Loblaw first announced plans to turn its properties into a REIT last December.It values its property holdings at $7 billion and said the trust will help the company optimize the value its real estate portfolio, lower the cost of capital for real estate and increase the speed of development of new retail sites.The new Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust will hold 415 retail properties, one office complex and nine warehouse properties totalling 35.3 million square feet of gross leasable area.Loblaw, which will own a stake in Choice, is Canada’s largest grocer with more than 1,000 corporate and franchised stores from coast to coast. The company and its franchisees employ approximately 134,000 full-time and part-time employees.Among the companies banners are: Loblaws, Zehrs, Provigo, Fortinos, Liquorstore and SaveEasy and among its brands are President’s Choice, No Name and the Joe Fresh line of clothing.

AutoNation to sell its own parts add used car centres

FILE – This Tuesday, July 17, 2012, file photo shows a Land Rover dealership in Pompano Beach, Fla. AutoNation Inc. said Thursday, July 19, 2012, that its second-quarter net income rose 9.3 percent as the nation’s largest dealership chain sold more new and used vehicles. AutoNation announced Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, that it is expanding into stand-alone used car sales centers and will even sell its own automotive replacement parts. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz) DETROIT – With U.S. new-car sales levelling off after hitting a record last year, the nation’s largest auto dealership chain is looking for new growth by expanding into stand-alone used car dealers and selling its own brand of replacement parts.Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based AutoNation announced the new ventures on Friday, with the CEO saying it will invest $500 million in the new businesses because of the new-car sales plateau.CEO Mike Jackson said new-car sales cycles go in three phases — growth, plateau and decline. He wants the chance to grow no matter what the cycle. New-car retail sales run about 15 million per year, while used car sales are about 40 million, he said. Having its own used-car only stores “will allow us to grow more rapidly in the larger segment,” Jackson said in an interview.Total new car sales, including fleet sales to rental car companies, hit 17.5 million last year. But in the past few months, sales have started to level off and may not match last year’s record. New-car prices already have started to fall, and there probably won’t be much sales growth for new-car dealers in the next few years.So AutoNation wanted to go bigger in used cars. It’s already found 25 sites in its existing markets to set up the free-standing used car stores. The sites will compete directly with the CarMax used car chain. Five will open next year. They’ll offer an AutoNation version of certified pre-owned vehicles which will be inspected, repaired and come with warranties. Some will have two years of free maintenance.In addition, the dealership group started selling its own maintenance and repair parts during the summer with the introduction of AutoNation-brand batteries. Jackson said that could expand to thousands of AutoNation branded parts, allowing the chain to better compete in service and retain customers who are keeping cars for 11 or 12 years. The company’s new-car stores already sell used cars, but Jackson said the market is so large that he doesn’t see the new ventures stealing business from current dealers.The company also plans to run regional vehicle auctions and add 18 collision repair centres nationwide.Jackson sees some of the ventures returning immediate profits, but said there might be a short-term hit to earnings as the company invests the $500 million over the next several years. The used-car stores, called AutoNation USA, should become profitable in their second year of operation, he said. “Over time the return on the brand extension efforts is well above our capital threshold,” he said.Also during the summer, the chain launched a one-price used car sales strategy that includes centralized pricing and used-car appraisals. The single-price strategy will give buyers a transparent and stress-free experience, the company says.The news came Friday as the 371-store chain reported third-quarter earnings of $107.3 million, missing Wall Street’s expectations.The company said it had net income of $1.05 per share. Earnings, adjusted for non-recurring costs and to account for discontinued operations, came to $1.11 per share.The average estimate of 13 analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of $1.14 per share.The auto retailer posted revenue of $5.57 billion in the period, also missing Street forecasts. Fourteen analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $5.62 billion.AutoNation shares fell $1.48, or 3.2 per cent, to $44.57 in midday trading Friday. The stock has decreased almost 29 per cent in the last 12 months._____Elements of this story were generated by Automated Insights (http://automatedinsights.com/ap) using data from Zacks Investment Research.

Upset Alert Pacers Take Game 2 as LeBron Wade

Pacers and George Hill got it done.It is one thing to lose at home to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. It’s another thing to lose with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade failing in the waning moments.But that’s exactly what happened. And the Indiana Pacers were the benefactors with a 78-75 victory that tied the series at 1-1.James, who had 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists, missed two foul shots with 54.3 seconds left and Miami down by a point. He had missed another free throw earlier. And with 16 seconds to go and the Pacers in front by two, Wade missed a driving layup.And finally, down by three in the last seconds of the game, neither Wade nor James took the last shot. It was a contested bomb by Mario Chalmers that clanked off the rim that sealed Indiana’s triumph that secured it the home court advantage.Forward David West  led the way with 16 points and  10 rebounds and guard George Hill added 15.Playing without injured forward Chris Bosh (abdominal strain), who is out for the series, the Heat received little help from anyone other than James and Wade. No other Miami player scored more than five points.The Heat have until Thursday’s Game 3 in Indianapolis to figure it out. read more

Des pinces puissantes une arme de séduction pour le crabe violoniste

first_imgDes pinces puissantes : une arme de séduction pour le crabe violonisteLors du 13ème congrès de la Société européenne de biologie évolutive, des chercheurs australiens ont exposé la façon dont, à l’aide de fausses pinces de crabe robotisées, ils ont étudié, dans les mangroves australiennes, l’attitude des femelles de crabe violoniste à la recherche du mâle le plus ‘costaud’ pour frayer.De grosses pinces, et l’art et la manière de s’en servir : tel est le secret du crabe violoniste mâle pour attirer une compagne. C’est ce qui ressort d’une étude menée par Sophie Callander, de l’Australian National University de Canberra et ses collègues biologistes, qui ont testé, dans les vasières du nord de l’Australie, le comportement des femelles de crabe violoniste (Uca mjoebergi)… en mimant celui des mâles à l’aide de 3 fausses pinces articulées, de différentes grosseurs.À lire aussiLa migration de millions de crabes rouges filmée sur l’île de ChristmasLes mâles ont coutume de se poster devant leur terrier pour y attirer une compagne en agitant leurs pinces en cercle. Essayant diverses combinaisons de taille de pince et de rapidité de mouvements grâce à leur dispositif mécanique, les chercheurs ont constaté que ces dames s’approchaient d’avantage des fausses pinces combinant grande taille et vigoureuse agitation. Une attirance encore accrue, curieusement, lorsque des ‘congénères’ (mécaniques) plus faibles se trouvaient à proximité immédiate de la pince ‘musclée’.Le Dr Callander rapproche ces résultats d’études précédentes montrant que, chez les crabes violonistes, les ‘caïds’ venaient volontiers prêter main forte à des mâles plus petits qu’un intrus cherchait à dépouiller de leur terrier. “Ce comportement est peu susceptible d’être une forme d’altruisme de type ‘surveillance du quartier’ : si les grands mâles peuvent protéger leurs voisins plus petits, ils augmentent probablement leur succès auprès des femelles”, suppose-t-elle. Une démonstration de force, en quelque sorte.Le 10 septembre 2011 à 10:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Baby Mountain Lion Rescued From Home After Being Fed Bratwurst

first_img Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Stay on target Colorado officials are warning the public to leave wildlife alone after they rescued a sick baby mountain lion from a home where it was fed bratwurst and kept indoors.On Thursday, Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW) posted a press statement about the recent incident and how it’s illegal for people to remove wildlife from their natural habitat.  Residents and tourists were cautioned to leave orphaned wild animals alone and call CPW to handle the situation.“If you find wildlife you believe to be orphaned, leave the area immediately and call CPW. By leaving the area, mom will feel safe to come back and retrieve her young,” said Travis Sauder, CPW’s district wildlife manager, in the press statement. “Many animals intentionally leave their young behind when startled, relying on the built-in camouflage of the youngsters’ spotted fur to keep them safe.”Photo Credit: Colorado Parks & WildlifeOn Tuesday, Sauder retrieved the baby mountain lion from the Walsenburg, Colorado home and sent it to Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation, a Colorado-based nonprofit that helps wild animals recover from illnesses and injuries.Even though the baby mountain lion was sick, it appeared to be in good health, according to Sauder. However, the situation could have had a much worse outcome. The baby mountain lion, which was estimated to be under six-months-old, might have died from eating the human food, because it was most likely only consuming milk and regurgitated solids from its mother.Photo Credit: Colorado Parks & WildlifeAccording to CPW, the individuals who found the kitten posted pictures on social media on Nov. 12. They claimed that they discovered the kitten in a snowbank, allowed it to “thaw out” indoors, and then released it back to the wild. Sauder said the kitten did not need to “thaw out,” and that it was kept way too long for it to be returned to its original location.“Wild animals do not need to ‘thaw out’ because they are equipped by nature to survive cold and snow. It had been almost 30 hours since it was picked up Monday and its mom would not be in the area any longer,” said Sauder. “This is why it’s vital to leave baby wildlife where you find them and call us immediately.”The kitten, which is currently undergoing treatment at Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation, will hopefully be released back to its natural habitat soon.More on Geek.com:Humans Are Inadvertently Forcing Animals Under Cover of DarknessBobcat Shows Off Dead Iguana Prey to Tourists at Wildlife RefugeWWF: Human Consumption to Blame for Declining Wildlife Populationslast_img read more

Novartis launches global paid parental leave policy across 150 countries

first_imgMultinational pharmaceutical organisation Novartis is due to begin a phased roll out of a new global parental leave policy, which will enable both male and female employees to take at least 14 weeks of paid leave.The policy aims to offer equal parental leave to all staff across the globe from their first day of employment, in line with any national legislation, applicable for birth, surrogacy or adoption.The introduction will begin on 1 July 2019 and will continue until 2021. All of the organisation’s 130,000 employees working across 150 countries will be eligible for the parental leave, where previously these arrangements varied by country.Steven Baert, chief people and organisation officer at Novartis, said: “At Novartis, we want to celebrate with our people on becoming parents and to support them at this life-changing moment.“We believe that this family-friendly benefit will empower our people to make the right choices for the health and wellbeing of their families, by enjoying more flexibility and financial stability, at the times of their life when it matters the most.”Novartis has also introduced the new benefit to encourage gender balance and diversity, empowering male employees to share childcare responsibilities.Baert added: “By offering the same parental leave to all parents, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, we want to encourage a cultural shift, making it okay for fathers and non-birthing partners to embrace an approach to family care that is closer to that traditionally taken by mothers. In so doing, we hope to provide greater choice and opportunity for mothers too.”Alongside the new parental leave policy. Novartis will also provide coaching for those going on or returning from leave; this aims to help employees understand their options and support their reintegration into the workplace.Baert concluded: “Social attitudes are changing. Research shows that fathers increasingly want to spend more time caring for their children. This is particularly true for millennials and Generation Z.“We believe that our investment in an equal global parental leave policy will be more than outweighed by the long-term benefits of higher engagement and productivity through increased loyalty, job satisfaction and greater degrees of in-house knowledge and the ability to attract top talent.“Finally, by offering more choice and flexibility to all parents, we want to lead the way in shaping a society where gender balance is the norm, because ultimately, balance drives a better working world.”last_img read more

MPA Redesigns Relaunches Web Site

first_imgTraffic to the site, which averages about 200,000 unique visitor sessions per month, varies according to what’s happening in the industry, says Martin. Though the resource-intensive sections, such as Advertising and PIB, tend to be perennial traffic drivers. “Currently, the fastest growing section of our site in terms of visitors is the Digital section. The digital newsstand, digital initiatives and the member blogroll are updated throughout the day,” says Martin. More social networking functionality is in the works, Martin says. As the AMC show draws near, a blog related to that show will be added. And within the next few months, a more robust community section will debut and will include a member discussion forum and expanded social networking features. Not to be outdone by b-to-b publishing’s American Business Media’s site relaunch in early 2008, the consumer magazine industry association Magazine Publishers of America relaunched its site Tuesday. Most prominent in the redesign is a new navigational format. Social media functionality is scarce for the time being. “We redesigned [the site] not only to increase online engagement with our various constituents but to also better take advantage of technological advances in the digital space,” said Nina Link, MPA’s president and CEO, in a statement. The comment reflects what Link has typically said when noting various examples of magazine publisher Web sites at MPA events. The site has ditched its top-of-page, mouse-over scheme for a left-margin navigation format. Additionally, the site now offers RSS functionality and a “community” page, which lists links to MPA groups and content on Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube. “The redesigned site displays the content in a smarter way to meet the needs of the users,” said Debbie Martin, director of information services, in an email. “When we surveyed members and non-members during the development stage we discovered that most people visit magazine.org for research and news. So we’ve highlighted news and research. Also, the new Flip Book feature allows users to quickly see what’s topical and relevant.” last_img read more

Will Smiths Aladdin trailer feature A Whole New World Watch

first_imgAladdin movie trailerDisney’s Aladdin (@disneyaladdin/Instagram)A month prior to the release of Avengers: Endgame movie, Walt Disney Studios has finally released a full-length trailer for their upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin. The trailer finally revealed Will Smith as Genie but what has made everyone talking is that this is going to be the first time in this movie where we got to hear “A Whole New World” song.The trailer features Mean Massoud as Aladdin, an Agrabah thief who is smitten with Sultan’s daughter, Princess Jasmine played by Naomi Scott. Aladdin meets Jafar, played by Marwan Kenzari, who takes Aladdin to a huge mountain where they could find the lamp. With the magical lamp, Jafar wishes to overthrow the Sultan but as it shows in the trailer, Aladdin takes the lamp for himself.After befriending Genie, Aladdin asks him to make him like a prince so that Princess Jasmine can fall in love with him. For this, Genie swiftly says that “You look like a prince on the outside, but I didn’t change anything on the outside.”In Aladdin’s recent trailer, we finally see the flying carpet and how Will Smith performs this musical dance number of “Friend Like Me” and how Jasmine sings, “A Whole New World.” Well, fans expected Disney to create a couple of new songs for this movie but still, it would be fun to see this live-action musical fantasy movie on the big screen.You can watch the trailer below:The upcoming Aladdin movie is based on Disney’s Aladdin and the Magic Lamp from One thousand and One Nights. The movie’s screenplay is co-written by John August and Guy Ritchie.Even before the release, Aladdin movie has drawn a lot of criticism for several reasons. At first, fans and movie experts criticized the movie for its decision to add a new original white character by casting actor Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders. At the same time, the decision to cast half-Indian actress Naomi Scott to play the lead of female Princess Jasmine also drawn criticism of colorism in Hollywood.Not only this, the previous look of Aladdin made many to wonder about Will Smith’s casting as Genie in the upcoming musical live-action movie. The first trailer was debuted during Grammy Awards and fans expressed disappointments for the poor use of CGIs. Several fans went on to say that Smith will never be able to recreate the magic of Robin Williams.Will Smith’s Aladdin movie is slated to release on May 24, 2019.last_img read more
