Canadian Chamber of Commerce critical of proposed tax reforms by Ottawa

first_imgFREDERICTON – Members of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce say proposed tax changes by the federal government are casting business people in a negative light and the finance minister shouldapologize.Chamber members got to put their concerns directly to federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau Saturday at their annual meeting in Fredericton.There was a round of applause when Morneau was asked if he’d consider an independent royal commission to take a broader look at tax reform, but Morneau said the government has been talking about tax reform since the summer of 2015, and expects the current input will lead to changes in what’s being proposed.The tax proposals include restrictions on the ability of business owners to reduce their tax rate by sprinkling their income to family members in lower tax brackets, even if those family members don’t contribute to the company.Morneau also proposed limits on the use of private corporations to make passive investments that are unrelated to the company.Another change would limit business owners’ ability to convert regular income of a corporation into capital gains, which are typically taxed at a lower rate.last_img read more

Dawson Creek wins BC SPCA Award

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. — The City of Dawson Creek was awarded with the BC SPCA’s Humane Community Award at the society’s annual awards ceremony in Richmond on May 4th. The award was presented by the SPCA in recognition of the city’s approach to humane welfare for animals. BC SPCA CEO Craig Daniell said that in 2015, the city introduced an animal responsibility bylaw designed to address cat overpopulation by encouraging spay/neuter and permanent identification.“It takes a strong community effort to address the suffering of animals, and the mayor and council of Dawson Creek have shown outstanding leadership in working with the BC SPCA and other partners to create a better life for animals in their region,” said Daniell. “The city’s mandatory cat licensing bylaw has also made a significant impact. In 2017 nearly 800 cats were licensed – more than the number of dogs licensed that same year – which has enabled the BC SPCA’s South Peace Branch to increase the return rate of lost cats to their guardians from 10 to 40 per cent.”Licensing fees are $5 for a fixed cat and $200 for an unfixed cat. Thanks to the generous support of PetSmart Charities™ of Canada, the South Peace SPCA has been able to provide free spay and neuter surgeries to the city’s residents. The grant program led to a significant increase in bylaw compliance. In 2015, 73 percent of kittens coming into the care of the South Peace Branch came from the city of Dawson Creek. This number decreased to 31 percent last year. All of the 2018 BC SPCA Award winners.

UNICEF calls for better enforcement against child traffickers in South Asia

“There should be no hiding place for those selling and trading children for sex,” said Sadig Rasheed, UNICEF’s Regional Director. “While governments and law enforcement agencies must do whatever they can to protect children, a lot of problems could be stopped tomorrow if men in South Asia said ‘no’ to child sex.” The three-day meeting in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, is drawing representatives from eight South Asian governments along with children from the region and officials from nearly a dozen UN and non-governmental agencies to assess progress since the 2001Yokohama Global Commitment, which called for greater worldwide efforts to protect children. Because of links with organized crime it is extremely difficult to get reliable figures on trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children, but UNICEF said an estimated 300, 000 women and children from Bangladesh have been trafficked to India and another 200,000 to Pakistan. In addition between 100,000 and 200,000 Nepali women and girls are said to be working in India’s sex industry, the agency added. While not all those trafficked will be employed as prostitutes, a considerable proportion will have become involved in this form of exploitation. read more

Baseballs Hot Stove Has Gone From Cold To Basically Turned Off

“We’ll closely monitor developments,” an MLB Players Association spokesperson said to FiveThirtyEight last month. “If 30 clubs are competing for a pennant, the free-agent market for players will be robust.”But fewer teams seem interested in competing.The Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks, 2018 contenders, are retooling. The American League Central champion Cleveland Indians have shed payroll in a weak division they can likely win without spending on free agents.And teams seem to have learned, collectively, to wait out free agents. Thirty-five free agents signed guaranteed major league deals last year between Feb. 1 and opening day,2Excluding players who signed with one team earlier in the offseason, were released and signed with another team within the February-to-April period. compared with 18 in 2017, 13 in 2016, 10 in 2015 and 13 in 2014. The longer free agents wait, the fewer dollars they’re typically awarded.Even the star free agents are having to wait.Consider that in the not-so-distant past, top players had usually signed by now. Just look at the contracts inked before Christmases past: On Dec. 1, 2015, David Price signed the richest deal ever for a starting pitcher (seven years and $217 million) with the Boston Red Sox, and he was followed three days later by Zack Greinke, who signed a six-year, $206.5 million deal with Arizona. On Dec. 10 of the previous year, Jon Lester signed a $155 million deal with the Chicago Cubs. And in 2013, Robinson Cano signed a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Seattle Mariners on Dec. 6, just three days after Jacoby Ellsbury signed a seven-year, $153 million deal with the Yankees.But the five richest contracts of last offseason were awarded after Jan. 24. And only one contract so far this offseason has topped $100 millionThere are other factors behind the slow down, said Chaim Bloom, vice president of baseball operations for the Tampa Bay Rays. His club reportedly signed pitcher Charlie Morton on Dec.12.“I’m hesitant to call something a trend before having [enough] information to really say this is a new normal — it might just be a slight shift in the timetable,” Bloom said to FiveThirtyEight last week. “There is a lot more information available. Teams increasingly like to have more and more information before making decisions. That may push some things later in the calendar. I also think — and this offseason is a good example of it — staff movement and staff [hirings] are taking up a larger chunk of offseason. … The more coaching staffs and front offices grow, the more time that is going to take [in early offseason].”Have teams learned to wait out the market?“I don’t know if it’s ideal for clubs, necessarily,” Bloom said of the slower markes. “You want to go into spring training knowing who you have.”Free agency has become more and more a battleground between teams and players. Clubs are accused of suppressing the service time of potential stars so as to control their prime years at cheaper salaries. Teams also seem to be wary of allocating a large share of their payroll to one player. Alex Rodriguez’s $275 million deal with the Yankees — signed Dec. 13, 2007 — remains the record for a free-agent contract even as MLB revenues have increased from $6 billion in 2007 to exceeding $10 billion in 2017.Regardless of whether free-agent superstars Harper and Manny Machado set contract records, they are expected to receive guaranteed dollars well into nine figures. The greater concern for the union is what another slow-to-develop market means for the middle class of free agents — which represents the vast majority of players.A slow-to-develop market forced unsigned players to create their own spring training camp last year in Bradenton, Florida. David Freese knows this trend well. After the former World Series MVP finished the 2015 season with 2.2 wins above replacement, he sought a lucrative, multiple-year contract. But he had to settle in March for a one-year, $3 million deal with the Pirates.“It was a tough situation to handle,” Freese said in 2016. “The waiting, it challenges your heart. Sitting around while guys are out playing [in spring training] … seeing games, seeing guys in the field.”Rather than test free agency this winter after the Dodgers were likely to turn down his $6 million club option, he re-signed with the club on a one-year, $4.5 million deal.Freese isn’t the only player to take that approach. Josh Donaldson — the 2015 A.L. MVP — agreed to a one-year, $23 million deal with Atlanta on Nov. 26. He was joined by 18 other free agents signing contracts for just one year, making up 67.9 percent of the 28 signings so far through Monday. That’s the greatest share of one-year contracts signed through the first 50 days of the offseason over the past six winters. (The next closest was 52 percent in 2016-17.)Some of these players may have decided to bet on themselves on shorter-term deals in the hopes of maximizing their future earning potential. Or perhaps they are responding to seeing players with hopes of signing lucrative multi-year deals last offseason, like Mike Moustakas and Neil Walker, languish on the market until spring training had started.Free agents across the game appear to be in store for another longer wait. Perhaps this is the new normal.Sara Ziegler contributed research. LAS VEGAS — The Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino was, in some ways, the most appropriate host for baseball’s winter meetings: After all, this offseason was once expected to be punctuated by announcements of record-setting, high-dollar free-agency deals. Bryce Harper, a premier free agent, is a Las Vegas native. But away from the din of the casino floor, a podium set up for press conferences in a vast ballroom was largely quiet last week. After last winter marked the slowest signing period in at least the previous 18 years, this offseason is starting even more slowly, according to a FiveThirtyEight analysis of free-agent data.Teams already seemed less interested in giving time on the field to players over the age of 30 — the time frame in which many players first become eligible for free agency. But now, early in the offseason, teams also seem increasingly less willing to spend on any free agent.Consider that through Monday, 50 days after the World Series concluded, only 5.2 percent of available free-agent players1Our pool of available free agents includes any player with major league experience who was granted free agency or released in October and November of each season. That excludes players signed internationally or those waived by a club before the season ended or later in the offseason. had signed major league deals for guaranteed money, according to a FiveThirtyEight analysis of data from The Baseball Cube. Fifty days after the end of the 2017 World Series, 5.5 percent of available free agents had signed. Two years ago that number was 9.2 percent. In the three offseasons prior to that winter — 2015-16, 2014-15 and 2013-14 — it was 9.2, 7.8 and 10.9 percent respectively.Through Monday, $442.5 million had been spent on free agents. That’s down from $469.8 million at the same point last year, which was down from $976.5 million in the winter of 2016-17, $1.401 billion in 2015-16, $1.173 billion in 2014-15 and $1.229 billion through the middle of December 2013. read more

Govt took no precautions

first_imgMembers of fire service along with the local people conduct rescue operation. Photo: Prothom AloThe deadliest landslides triggered by heavy monsoon rains have already claimed at least 140 lives in the hilly districts in southeast Bangladesh.The government had took no preventive measures to tackle the natural calamity that hit Rangamati, Bandarban, Khagrachhari and Chittagong districts.The district administration does not even have a list of areas at risk of landslides.Experts said, given the geographically unique character of the region, it is important to have a list of places suitable for human habitat in the hilly areas.Scientific mapping and surveys must be carried out, the experts added.They also blamed the unplanned settlements and massive deforestation in the hill tracts for the great loss of lives in the districts.Professor of Dhaka University geography department, Syed Humayun Akhtar, said, “We must have a map of risk-prone areas. If we had that, lives could have been saved.”Asked about the government’s precautions, the additional deputy commissioner of Rangamati, Prokash Kanti Chowdhury, told Prothom Alo that the district administration has no list of unsafe residential areas. The roads and highway department has a list in this regard, he said.Khagrachhari district was the least affected by the landslides. A body of one person so far been recovered from the district.The additional deputy commissioner of Khagracchari, Gofran Faruki, said the authorities warned the residents after the heavy rains in the areas.He said the district administration has no list of the vulnerable areas.Bandarban’s additional deputy commissioner, Didar Alam M Maksud Chowdhury, said every year the authorities make a list of the unsafe areas and a list was prepared this year too.”People of the hazardous areas were removed after the rains began,” he said.He confessed that the landslide-hit places were not on the list.Director general of the disaster management directorate Mohammed Riaz Ahmed said a list was made after the deadly landslide in 2007 that killed 127 people in Chittagong district.But the list was not updated. “It would have been good if we had an updated one.”Disaster management expert Gawher Nayeem Wahra told Prothom Alo the administration has no list of the unsafe parts of the hilly districts.”The administration does not bother to make people aware of risks involved in living there. The hill dwellers face endless disaster due to the administration’s failures and limitations.”*The piece is rewritten in English by Toriqul Islamlast_img read more

IS chief Baghdadi may have been killed Russian army

first_imgThis image grab taken from a propaganda video released on July 5, 2014 by al-Furqan Media allegedly shows the leader of the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, aka Caliph Ibrahim, adressing Muslim worshippers at a mosque in the militant-held northern Iraqi city of Mosul. AFPThe Russian army on Friday said it hit Islamic State leaders in an airstrike in Syria last month and was seeking to verify whether IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed.In a statement, the army said Sukhoi warplanes carried out a 10-minute night-time strike on May 28 at a location near Raqa, where IS leaders had gathered to plan a pullout by militants from the group’s stronghold.”Senior commanders of the military groups of the so-called IS military council, 30 mid-ranking field commanders and up to 300 militants who provided security for them were eliminated,” it said.”According to information which is being checked through various channels, the leader of ISIL Ibrahim Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi was also present at the meeting and was eliminated by the strike,” it said.ISIL is an acronym for the so-called IS group, also known as ISIS and Daesh.The US has been informed about the attack, the statement added.Elusive IS supremo Baghdadi has not been seen in public since proclaiming himself “caliph” in the Iraqi city of Mosul three years ago.His group has earned global notoriety for imposing a hardline form of Islam that has included stonings, beheadings and amputations.The Iraqi-born world’s most-wanted man has been rumoured wounded or killed a number of times in the past.He has been nicknamed “The Ghost” as he has been reportedly spotted around the Syrian-Iraqi border but his whereabouts have never been confirmed.US-backed Arab and Kurdish forces broke into the IS bastion of Raqa last Tuesday for the first time since it became a hub of the group’s self-declared caliphate and the scene of its most gruesome atrocities.last_img read more

PS Vita games priced at 77 for Japanese launch

first_imgThe launch of the PS Vita is fast approaching with Japan getting the handheld first on December 17. With a little over two months to go, Sony has revealed the price it expects to sell PS Vita titles for in its home territory, which if it keeps for the U.S. and European launch won’t see many games fly off the shelves.For the top tier games, for example, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Sony has applied a price tag of 5,980 Yen. That’s $77 for a boxed copy of the title. The download version is slightly cheaper at 4,900 Yen ($65).Before gamers outside of Japan get too concerned about that high pricing, take into account the exchange rate and pricing already announced for the hardware in the U.S. In Japan, the PS Vita will cost $390 (3G) or $325 (Wi-Fi). In the U.S. it will be $299 and $249 respectively. If we apply the same price difference to games, then boxed copies should cost no more than $59 and download versions no more than $50 when they launch in Western markets.We also need to consider that this is launch pricing and what Sony recommends the games should sell for. Retailers will discount those prices if they need or want to, and other launch titles are already expected to be cheaper. For example, Everybody’s Golf Next will be $65 boxed and a $52 download.The real losers in all of this are those gamers who have decided to import the Vita and its games before the February launch in the U.S. With supplies of the Japanese model sure to be stretched, you could easily end up paying $600+ for it. Games could also go for $100 each. In other words, don’t expect much change from $1,000 for the device and a couple of games if you want one in time for Christmas.via Andriasanglast_img read more

first_img Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact LISTEN: Bruce Arians, Cardinals head coach “We definitely would love to have him back.” Your browser does not support the audio element. Comments   Share   When March 8 rolls around, expect the Arizona Cardinals to be very busy.That’s the day NFL teams can begin contacting and negotiating with free agents and make qualifying offers to restricted free agents.According to Arizona head coach Bruce Arians, the team’s general manager, Steve Keim, will be busy calling players when the clock strikes 12:01.“We probably have five,” Arians told Doug and Wolf Friday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM when asked if there was a specific early target for the Cardinals. “Steve and I have the same philosophy, ‘here it is, do you want it? I’m going to ask this guy in about a half an hour. If you don’t want it, I’m going to ask him. If he wants it, you’re out.’ Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “It’s easy. We don’t play games.”Of course, the second-year head coach didn’t offer names of players the team is targeting, but did talk about areas where he’d like to see the Cardinals improve.“I think we need to get bigger and stronger on both sides of line with more depth — offensive line and defensive line. We need to get some depth because of our division — you’re going to win at the line of scrimmage in our division, you have to be physical,” he said. “And we can never, never stop getting speed, everywhere. Whether it be a linebacker, pass rusher, corner, safety or wide receiver.”Then there’s the matter of the Cardinals bringing back free agents of their own. Arizona has 14 players in that category, but none more important to re-sign than veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby, who led the team with 122 total tackles and was named a second team All-Pro.Arians knows how vital Dansby is to the Cardinals’ defense.“There’s no doubt — we offered Karlos a contract the day after the season ended,” he said. “We’re still in the negotiating process, but he’s a major part because of what he brought to the table for us as a leader.last_img read more

Injured Paphos cyclist in payout wrangle

first_imgPAPHOS municipality would not be drawn to comment on accusations made by lawyers representing a cyclist who says it has reneged on an injury compensation agreement.Phileleftheros reported that a cyclist allegedly suffered injuries all over his body, when he was thrown from his bicycle after attempting to ride over a ‘hidden’ pothole on Poseidonos Avenue in Kato Paphos, close to the popular municipal baths at Ta Bania.The lawyers allege that the cyclist originally threatened to sue the authorities for €25,000, but reached an out of court settlement of €12,000, which the municipality has since refused to pay. They are reported to have informed him that he can take them to court if he wishes.Municipal Secretary Themis Filipides, told the Cyprus Mail that he couldn’t comment on the particular case as it would be ‘improper’, as it is currently under review.However, he did say that similar approaches are made to the municipality on an almost weekly basis and each case is examined on its own merit.“When there is a real issue and a real case, we are logical enough to come up with a compromise, but don’t accept all and any demands.”He added: “Our policy is that we don’t give an answer immediately, but examine any instances thoroughly. We can’t invite everyone to make demands from us and in some cases, people aren’t driving carefully, or there may be other similar circumstances. However, sometimes these demands are reasonable,” he added.Great swathes of Paphos have been disrupted over the last few years with ongoing upgrading works involving major road networks such as, the Tomb of the Kings Road and huge parts of Paphos old town. Many roads have been closed to traffic as they are dug up, and often pedestrian access has been hazardous.Poseidonos Avenue in Kato Paphos is the town’s main coastal road and connects many of Paphos hotels with the ancient harbour area.There have long been complaints about the poor state of many of the town’s road surfaces, something which the current council is addressing with the aim of improving the network.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
