Five issues the parties are ready to fight over as campaign begins

first_imgThe Liberals’ pitch on this front is less about cutting people’s costs and more about what they’ve done to increase government supports, from the 2016 Canada Child Benefit that consolidated multiple family-oriented programs and increased benefits for nine out of 10 recipients to their measures on making home-buying more affordable. They point to statistics showing that 278,000 children have been lifted out of poverty on their watch.Underlying the promises is an economic red flag that indicates why many voters feel stretched: Canadians have some of the highest levels of consumer debt in the developed world.JobsThe cost of living might not seem as scary to people who feel as though they have secure jobs that pay well, but urban Canada hasn’t been exempt from the disruptions of the “gig economy” and the decline in manufacturing jobs that have been the mainstays of small and medium-sized centres’ economies for generations. For example, General Motors’ announcement last winter that it would close its Oshawa factory hit hard. The Liberals tout their carbon price — and the rebate taxpayers in the affected provinces get in compensation — as an economist-approved way to reduce Canada’s greenhouse-gas emissions with maximum efficiency. People who lead low-emissions lifestyles actually get rewarded with hard cash, they point out.The New Democrats and Greens would both toughen the rules on industrial emitters, but are broadly OK with the direction the Liberals took with their carbon tax. On the flip side, the Liberals’ decision to spend billions of dollars buying the Trans Mountain pipeline to get the project past regulatory hurdles hasn’t helped them with environmentalists.The Conservatives call the Liberal carbon policy an additional burden on overtaxed consumers that doesn’t account for people who have to spend a lot on home heating and driving gasoline and diesel vehicles. They vow to replace it with a system requiring big industrial emitters to spend on green technology.AffordabilityClosely related to environment policy are the cost of living and what the government should be doing to help Canadians who feel they can’t make ends meet. The Conservatives have put this issue at the heart of their campaign, settling on “It’s time for you to get ahead” as their slogan. Besides getting rid of the carbon-price backstop, they promise to cut taxes on home heating and parental benefits paid under employment insurance, among a raft of pledges aimed at reducing Canadians’ bills.The New Democrats have talked up a plan to cut cellphone costs, a large expense in many household budgets. OTTAWA — Here are five issues the major federal parties have been preparing to fight this election over.Climate changeLiberals and Conservatives seem eager to campaign on the Trudeau government’s signature environmental policy: the price on carbon-emitting fuels in provinces that don’t have equivalent systems of their own. It applies in Ontario, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan, and the Liberals have said it will cover Alberta starting in January. The tax starts at $20 per tonne of carbon-dioxide emissions and is to rise to $50 a tonne by 2022.center_img Albertans have been angered by a lack of progress on oil pipelines, which means their oilsands products sell at a steep discount against world prices because they’re hard to get to buyers, kneecapping the provincial economy. China has made it all but impossible for Canadian producers to sell products like canola there (more on that below).Nevertheless, Canada’s unemployment rate in May was the lowest it’s been since the 1970s, and has since ticked up just slightly. Average wages are near record highs.Canada and the worldJustin Trudeau declared after his 2015 election that Canada was back, newly keen on multilateralism and doing its bit internationally. Then the bottom fell out: U.S. President Donald Trump’s unpredictability, China’s new assertiveness, Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and designs on the Arctic, Britain’s being consumed by its departure from the European Union — all make Canada’s efforts to navigate global politics much tougher than in 2015.Canada reached a new North American free-trade agreement with the U.S. and Mexico, which is either the successful result of standing firm against a mercurial U.S. president in a largely defensive action or a capitulation to American demands on multiple fronts. The view largely depends on one’s political stripe.China is furious with Canada over its arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou on a U.S. extradition warrant. In response, China detained two Canadians there and obstructed agricultural imports. Canada has assembled lots of international support, but has not seen any of those retaliatory measures undone.Trudeau has had successful summits, including a chummy appearance this summer in Montreal with Donald Tusk, outgoing president of the European Union Council. He also had a disastrous trip to India, where the lasting memories were of him and his family in Indian-style garb, and the invitations to receptions sent to Jaspal Atwal, a Sikh separatist who was convicted of trying to murder an Indian politician on Vancouver Island in 1986.EthicsThe Liberals came into office promising openness, transparency and good conduct. Under the previous Conservative government, parliamentary secretary Dean Del Mastro was convicted of violating the Canada Elections Act and sentenced to jail time. The criminal trial of then-Conservative Sen. Mike Duffy ended in his acquittal by a judge who found he’d been the victim of scheming in the Prime Minister’s Office to get out from under a scandal over senators’ expenses.Nobody from Trudeau’s government has gone on trial, but the Liberal leader himself has twice been found to have violated the conflict-of-interest law — once over a vacation he took at the private island of the Aga Khan, the wealthy religious leader and philanthropist, and another in the SNC-Lavalin affair.That affair led to a slew of resignations — Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott from cabinet, followed by their eventual expulsions from the Liberal caucus, Trudeau’s closest aide Gerald Butts, and the early retirement of Canada’s top bureaucrat — and preceded a sharp drop in Liberal poll numbers last winter.Wilson-Raybould described a months-long campaign out of the Prime Minister’s Office to get her, as Canada’s attorney general, to arrange a deal with SNC-Lavalin to head off a prosecution over allegedly corrupt dealings in Libya. Trudeau has said his priority was saving jobs at the Quebec engineering firm and that although he and his aides didn’t recognize how Wilson-Raybould was receiving their efforts, they ultimately had their hearts in the right place.The Conservatives link the SNC-Lavalin debacle to the failed prosecution of former vice-admiral Mark Norman over leaked information on a shipbuilding contract, saying both are evidence of Trudeau’s ruthlessness.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Dominican Republic UN experts warn against deportations racial profiling of people of

“No one should be deported when there are legal and valid reasons to stay,” human rights expert Mireille Fanon Mendes-France, who currently heads the UN Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent, said in a news release.“Migrants are entitled to protection and Dominicans of Haitian descent have the right to reside safely in the territory, as well as children born in the Dominican Republic who are legally registered,” she stated.Some 19,000 people have reportedly left Dominican Republic for Haiti since 21 June due to fear and amidst concerns that there will be violations when deportations officially start in August. “The Dominican Republic cannot violate international norms or those of the inter-American system of human rights protection, and especially not violate its own Constitution,” the expert emphasized. According to the expert panel, the difficulties in obtaining necessary documents to register for the naturalization and regularization process, the lack of information on the deportation plan, and the deportations “have instilled fear, resulting in a situation whereby people of Haitian descent without documents are also leaving to avoid abrupt deportations.” The Working Group today reiterated its call on the Dominican authorities to put in place effective and transparent legislation and other measures to successfully fight the discrimination and social exclusion faced mostly by Haitian migrants and people of Haitian descent in the country. “The Dominican Republic does not recognize the existence of a structural problem of racism and xenophobia, but it must address these issues as a matter of priority so the country can live free from tension and fear,” Ms. Mendes-France added.The Working Groups are part of what is known as the Special Procedures of the Human Rights Council. Special Procedures, the largest body of independent experts in the UN Human Rights system, is the general name of the Council’s independent fact-finding and monitoring mechanisms that address either specific country situations or thematic issues in all parts of the world.Special Procedures’ experts work on a voluntary basis; they are not UN staff and do not receive a salary for their work. They are independent from any government or organization and serve in their individual capacity. read more

Smartphones now outsell feature phones in the US

first_imgThe old adage that smartphones aren’t that important because “most people buy dumbphones anyway” is no longer applicable, according to a recent Neilsen survey. In the United States, smartphones now account for 55% of all new phone sales, and feature phones have dropped to 45%. It was only October of 2010 when the numbers were the other way around.Back in February of 2010, the numbers were much different, with smartphones only making up 32% of overall smartphone sales in the United States. Feature phones clearly dominated the market at that time. The growth of smartphones overall has been largely due to the popularity of the Apple iPhone and Google Android devices.The study is also revealing because it shows us what smartphones everyone is buying. While Android saw a meteoric rise in popularity in the latter half of 2010, the only platform still growing since Q1 2011 is the Apple iPhone.At the end of 2010, the iPhone made up 10% of phones sold in the United States, and by the end of May 2011 it had grown to 17%. Some of this was due to the launch of the iPhone on Verizon Wireless and AT&T dropping the price of the iPhone 3GS in response. Android held steady at about 27%. Windows Phone 7 and other smartphone platforms held steady as well.The iPhone’s growth came at the expense of feature phones, which implies that more people are upgrading from feature phones to the iPhone specifically, possibly Verizon Wireless customers. The iPhone’s growth also came at the expense of RIM, the makers of the BlackBerry, who saw their market share drop from 11% of all phones in February 2011 to just 6% in May.Neilsen still asserts that before the end of 2011 most American mobile phone buyers will shop for and purchase a smartphone, regardless of what demographic they fit into or what feature set they’re looking for. The feature phone’s days may be numbered.Read more at Neilsenlast_img read more

EtatsUnis des milliers de chauvessouris décimées par un champignon

first_imgEtats-Unis : des milliers de chauves-souris décimées par un champignonDepuis 2006, plus d’un million de chauves-souris ont été victimes aux Etats-Unis du “syndrome du nez blanc”, une maladie mortelle engendrée par un champignon. Ce phénomène est particulièrement inquiétant, pour l’espèce d’abord, mais aussi pour l’écosystème, au sein duquel les chauves-souris jouent le rôle d’un insecticide naturel.Une équipe de chercheurs américains et sud-africains de l’université de Pretoria, de l’Institut géologique américain et de l’université de Boston, s’est penchée sur cette décimation de chauve-souris. Dans une étude publiée par la revue Nature, ils expliquent que grâce à ces petits mammifères nocturnes, les agriculteurs américains économisent entre 3 à 53 milliards de dollars en insecticides chaque année. Les chauves-souris jouent en effet le rôle d’un véritable pesticide naturel, en régulant la population d’insectes dont elle raffolent.À lire aussiIl laisse une fourmi coupe-feuille lui découper le doigtDepuis 2006, ce sont plus d’un million de chiroptères qui ont été décimés par le syndrome du nez blanc.

Galaxy Fold release delayed until June while Samsung investigates breaking screens

first_img 60 Photos AT&T Samsung 10:12 News of the phone’s delayed release was reported earlier Monday by The Wall Street Journal. That report follows a tweet from Engadget’s Richard Lai on Sunday about the postponement of launch-related events in Hong Kong and Shanghai that were originally scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.  Samsung’s Galaxy Fold woes began last week, two days after it distributed a small number of review devices to reviewers, including CNET. Reviewers discovered that peeling the plastic film off the Galaxy Fold’s 7.3-inch interior screen, which is made of a thin sheet of bendable plastic rather than glass, instantly made the phone unusable.  Comments Now playing: Watch this: 5:50 Tags Share your voice Our Galaxy Fold didn’t break.

Retail representatives and customer care are trained with information about the top protective layer.”CNET is keeping an eye on developments with the Galaxy Fold. While we’re continuing to review the early production device, we will not assign a rating until after we test the final production phone we ordered. See how it’s going with our Galaxy Fold so far. Samsung hit the pause button on its beleaguered Galaxy Fold after several incidents with screens last week left early-production review units unusable. Although the phone-maker said that it will announce a new release date for its first foldable phone “in the coming weeks,” AT&T on Tuesday sent an email to preorder customers with a new shipping date: June 13.CNET has fully reviewed the Galaxy Fold and our review unit has remained intact. We’ve been in contact with Samsung about the reported screen issues. Samsung also emailed everyone who preordered the device — including CNET reviewers — saying that it will update them “with more specific shipping information in two weeks.” It’s possible that T-Mobile and Samsung will choose slightly different shipping dates, or that AT&T should shift its new timetable as a result of the Fold’s future fixes. Samsung isn’t charging credit cards for the Fold until it ships, and the brand is also giving preorder buyers and out if they change their mind and want to cancel the order before it ships.An email Samsung sent on Monday to people who preordered the Galaxy Fold. Screenshot by CNET Foldable phones are a brand-new concept rocking the phone world. The design is supposed to give people double the screen space on a device that’s small enough to carry around, unlike today’s pocket-busting devices. But the enormous expense — the Galaxy Fold starts at $1,980 — and concerns over the durability of a bendable screen and hinge could threaten the ability of foldable phones to get off the ground.The incidents with the Fold’s plastic screen — which include a screen bulge and flickering display — have caused a kerfuffle among onlookers, casting doubt on the durability of Samsung’s $2,000 foldable phone. While Samsung’s screen woes could have been much worse, rivals might also find a way to learn from Samsung’s mistakes. Huawei has also announced a foldable device, the Mate X, and Motorola is rumored to have a foldable Razr in the works.”Initial findings from the inspection of reported issues on the display showed that they could be associated with impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge. There was also an instance where substances found inside the device affected the display performance,” Samsung said in a statement. “To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold.”Read: Galaxy Fold “loss” could help other foldable phones succeed Another discovered that the left half of the Galaxy Fold strongly flickered, and two more noticed a bulge under the screen that caused noticeable distortion in the screen’s image, possibly from debris that worked its way under the display. “While many reviewers shared with us the vast potential they see, some also showed us how the device needs further improvements that could ensure the best possible user experience,” Samsung said Monday. “We will take measures to strengthen the display protection. We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display including the protective layer so that our customers get the most out of their Galaxy Fold.” 201-galaxy-foldThe Fold is extremely pocketable when all closed up. Sarah Tew/CNET The incidents with the Galaxy Fold are also putting Samsung under intense scrutiny as consumers and industry pundits draw parallels with Samsung’s double recall of 2016’s Galaxy Note 7, after numerous reports that its battery overheated and sometimes caught fire. Screen issues tied to the Galaxy Fold have “broken” the phones, but have not been reported to cause a fire or any other damage to people and property. Samsung can address at least one recurring issue, where reviewers pulled off a sheet of plastic that wound up being an integral part of the screen. The company told CNET in a statement last week: “We are taking all necessary measures to ensure that information about protective layer is clearly delivered to our customers. Materials in the Galaxy Fold box, including the quick-start guide, will include information about the protective layer.”  19 Close up with the Galaxy Fold screen, notch and hinge People try the Galaxy Fold for the first time Now playing: Watch this: 3:56 Now playing: Watch this: Foldable Phones Tabletslast_img read more

Accelerating light beams in curved space

first_img Journal information: Physical Review X Physicists turn to Maxwell’s equations for self-bending light More information: Anatoly Patsyk et al. “Observation of Accelerating Wave Packets in Curved Space.” Physical Review X. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevX.8.011001 (a) Experimental setup, (b) propagation of the green beam inside of the red shell of an incandescent light bulb, and (c) photograph of the lobes of the accelerating beam. Credit: Patsyk et al. ©2018 American Physical Society The accelerating light beam propagates on a nongeodesic trajectory, rather than the geodesic trajectory taken by a non-accelerating beam. Credit: Patsyk et al. ©2018 American Physical Society By shining a laser along the inside shell of an incandescent light bulb, physicists have performed the first experimental demonstration of an accelerating light beam in curved space. Rather than moving along a geodesic trajectory (the shortest path on a curved surface), the accelerating beam bends away from the geodesic trajectory as a result of its acceleration. © 2018 Phys.org The ability to accelerate light beams along curved surfaces has a variety of potential applications, one of which is emulating general relativity phenomena. “Einstein’s equations of general relativity determine, among other issues, the evolution of electromagnetic waves in curved space,” Patsyk said. “It turns out that the evolution of electromagnetic waves in curved space according to Einstein’s equations is equivalent to the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a material medium described by the electric and magnetic susceptibilities that are allowed to vary in space. This is the foundation of emulating numerous phenomena known from general relativity by the electromagnetic waves propagating in a material medium, giving rise to the emulating effects such as gravitational lensing and Einstein’s rings, gravitational blue shift or red shift, which we have studied in the past, and much more.”The results could also offer a new technique for controlling nanoparticles in blood vessels, microchannels, and other curved settings. Accelerating plasmonic beams (which are made of plasma oscillations instead of light) could potentially be used to transfer power from one area to another on a curved surface. The researchers plan to further explore these possibilities and others in the future.”We are now investigating the propagation of light within the thinnest curved membranes possible—soap bubbles of molecular thickness,” Patsyk said. “We are also studying linear and nonlinear wave phenomena, where the laser beam affects the thickness of the membrane and in return the membrane affects the light beam propagating within it.” Whereas the trajectory of an accelerating beam on a flat surface is determined entirely by the beam width, the new study shows that the trajectory of an accelerating beam on a spherical surface is determined by both the beam width and the curvature of the surface. As a result, an accelerating beam may change its trajectory, as well as periodically focus and defocus, due to the curvature. Previously, accelerating light beams have been demonstrated on flat surfaces, on which their acceleration causes them to follow curved trajectories rather than straight lines. Extending accelerating beams to curved surfaces opens the doors to additional possibilities, such as emulating general relativity phenomena (for example, gravitational lensing) with optical devices in the lab.The physicists, Anatoly Patsyk, Miguel A. Bandres, and Mordechai Segev at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, along with Rivka Bekenstein at Harvard University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, have published a paper on the accelerating light beams in curved space in a recent issue of Physical Review X.”This work opens the doors to a new avenue of study in the field of accelerating beams,” Patsyk told Phys.org. “Thus far, accelerating beams were studied only in a medium with a flat geometry, such as flat free space or slab waveguides. In the current work, optical beams follow curved trajectories in a curved medium.”In their experiments, the researchers first transformed an ordinary laser beam into an accelerating one by reflecting the laser beam off of a spatial light modulator. As the scientists explain, this imprints a specific wavefront upon the beam. The resulting beam is both accelerating and shape-preserving, meaning it doesn’t spread out as it propagates in a curved medium, like ordinary light beams would do. The accelerating light beam is then launched into the shell of an incandescent light bulb, which was painted to scatter light and make the propagation of the beam visible.When moving along the inside of the light bulb, the accelerating beam follows a trajectory that deviates from the geodesic line. For comparison, the researchers also launched a nonaccelerating beam inside the light bulb shell, and observed that that beam follows the geodesic line. By measuring the difference between these two trajectories, the researchers could determine the acceleration of the accelerating beam.

Indian hotel sector sees a growth in occupancy

first_imgIn May 2017, India’s hotel sector performed strongly with rate and occupancy growth leading to a sharp rise in revenue per available room (revPAR).As per the latest monthly data from STR, India’s nationwide occupancy increased 5.4% year-on-year to 61.4% in May, which marked the highest absolute occupancy level for the month in India since 2007. The extra demand is allowing hoteliers to hike their rates; India’s average daily rate (ADR) climbed 3.5% to Rs 5,406.77 (approx $84) in May.These two factors combined to raise nationwide revPAR by +9.1% to Rs 3,319.71. During the first five months of 2017, RevPAR increased 4.2%, driven by strong domestic tourism and rising affluence among India’s growing middle class.

first_img “”Aite Group, LLC””:www.aitegroup.com/, is speaking out on contemporary issues in the commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) marketplace.[IMAGE] The company’s senior analyst, John Jay, recently released his statements in response to a New York Times article evaluating the potential impact of pre-crisis commercial loans.[COLUMN_BREAK]Within the publication’s report, the Times discussed the looming due dates associated with commercial mortgage loans that were issued five-plus years ago. However, Jay’s commentary indicates that the industry is striving to remain future-focused by extending mortgages that “”will make safer investments due to increased detail on performance.””Aite’s senior analyst noted, “”CMBS deals are not immune to the underlying factors that cratered the residential mortgage markets. Factors such as easy underwriting standards and rosy valuation projections can easily conspire to make what once seemed to be a sure-fire investment turn into a pumpkin.””Elaborating on the state of the industry, Jay said, “”The CMBS marketplace has moved on, however. All actors in this space are demanding ever more granular loan level performance detail and loan modifications (and are getting it, thanks to data and analytics vendors).””””Deeper analysis by capital-at-risk players will only make this a more efficient and properly risk-adjusted marketplace going forward,”” added Jay, concluding his forward-looking statements.
