Federal Reserve upbeat on growth prospects thanks to collapse in price of oil

first_imgFalling oil prices should give another boost to the economy, officials at the Federal Reserve said yesterday, despite the damage being caused to US oil and gas producers.Minutes from the Federal Open Markets Committee’s latest meeting show the policymakers believe the net effect will be positive.The price is falling both because of strong supply and weak demand. “Several [policymakers] indicated they expected slower economic growth abroad to negatively affect the US economy, principally through lower net exports, but the net effect of lower oil prices on US economic activity was anticipated to be positive,” the minutes said.Strong growth also means there were some hints interest rates could rise soon.“The minutes support our recent move to bring forward our forecast for the first rate hike to the second quarter of 2015, and for the range at the end of the year to be 75-100 basis points,” said ING’s Rob Carnell.

Supermac’s owner states Togher Plaza will be on a scale of ‘European significance’

first_img Michael Murphy and Pat McDonagh at the Killeshin Hotel in Portlaoise Speaking at the announcement of 300 jobs across six regions in the Midlands, Supermac’s owner Pat McDonagh stated that the proposed motorway plaza development at Togher will be ‘of a scale of European significance’.He also said that the infrastructure and roads to enable the plaza ‘will be built at our own cost’.“There is a special thrill for me in making this announcement here today in Portlaoise.

This must be real partnership between government, local government and private enterprise,” he announced.In an interview after the announcement, he said that two objections had been raised with An Bord Pleanála about the proposed plaza.“As you know, at the minute our application is with An Bord Pleanála , we’re optimistic. I think there’s been two appeals to Bord Pleanála. One from a competitor and another is from an individual, not inside of the county I might add. As I say we’re optimistic that sense will prevail.”He said that if the application is granted, he estimates that it should be open within a year from beginning the build.“It will take us probably two or three months to prepare to start the work. Once we get the go ahead we’d be certainly open inside the year after we get it.“The construction jobs obviously will be phased because initially there will probably only be 15 to 20 guys working on it but then as it goes on it can develop up to 100 jobs.”Among those attending the event were Monsignor John Byrne, Chief superintendent John Scanlan, Anna May and Anna Marie McHugh, Laois TDs Charlie Flanagan and Sean Fleming, Cathaoirleach of Laois County Council John King, Laois County councillors Caroline Dwane Stanley and Catherine Fitzgerald, Evelyn Reddin from Laois Local Enterprise Office, Manager of the Killeshin Hotel Michael Murphy and Jackie Carroll and Rose Bergin from Big Idea Consulting – who are overseeing the Laois Tourism strategy.“I’m grateful to each and every one of you who made the effort to join us here this morning. Our branding motto describes our products as being ‘100% Irish’ and indeed they are.“But I believe to be Irish means much more. To be Irish is to be of Ireland, it is the place you love. It is the place you’re proud of. It is the place you want to put your all into supporting. For Una and myself it is the place we want to invest; to create jobs and to build along with our company.“In September last year we celebrated our 40th birthday, now that wasn’t my 40th birthday it was Supermac’s 40th birthday. In that 40 years we went from two jobs to 4,000 jobs 40 years later.He spoke about some of the people who he believes feel supported by jobs in Supermac’s – and called the numbers, ‘merely a support act’ to the people behind them.“I love to visit outlets in Irish towns and see behind the counter the very people these jobs support. They have developed with us. Our earliest employees are our friends, and our shops employ many whose parents once worked in the company,” said Mr McDonagh.SEE ALSO – Three Ministers in Laois to launch new Regional Enterprise plan WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Twitter Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’ WhatsApp Supermac’s owner states Togher Plaza will be on a scale of ‘European significance’ Previous articleFr Paddy: Fr John… A lovely manNext articleIn Pictures: A look back on 2018 with Laois Martial Arts Siun Lennonhttp://heresosiun.blogspot.ie/2016/09/the-lekkie-piccie-experience.htmlSiún Lennon joined LaoisToday in a full-time capacity after studying Journalism and New Media in the University of Limerick.

SK Election Untouched by Missile Furore

first_img By Park Seong Guk – 2012.12.03 2:09pm News “Even if North Korea launches [a long-range missile], they will be unable to have a significant impact on the upcoming presidential election,” President Lee Myung Back told reporters at the Blue House on the 2nd.“I cannot say for certain whether North Korea will shoot the missile before the presidential election,” he admitted. “However, North Korea has intervened in every other election… They intervened in my election in 2007, and also in the recent legislative election.”“But all it has done is worsen the opinion of the South Korean people toward North Korea,” he added. “There may well be a candidate that North Korea prefers, but they have no power to influence the election.”Musing on the situation North Korea finds itself in more generally, President Lee went on, “With the emergence of its new young leader Kim Jong Eun, North Korea is faced with an opportunity for change. They are at a crossroads; whether to struggle to live with nuclear weapons or to abandon their nuclear programs and join the international community on the road to prosperity.” He asserted, “One thing that is for certain right now is that, unlike in the past, time is not on North Korea’s side. Because of North Korea’s nuclear weapons and the development of long-range missiles, the people’s lives are becoming more difficult. China’s position is also that North Korea must focus on the people’s livelihoods.”“The U.S. and China are both with South Korea in hoping for change and opening in North Korea,” he concluded, adding, “I hope that General Secretary Xi Jinping’s new administration will play a positive role in bringing change to North Korea.” North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China News Facebook Twitter There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img News SK Election Untouched by Missile Furore Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak News AvatarPark Seong Guk SHARElast_img read more

Statement on Canada’s request for CUSMA dispute settlement consultations with United States on Canadian solar products

first_imgStatement on Canada’s request for CUSMA dispute settlement consultations with United States on Canadian solar products From: Global Affairs CanadaThe Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, today issued the following statement regarding Canada’s request for consultations with the United States under Chapter 31 of the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) with respect to continued U.S. safeguard tariffs on Canadian solar products:The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, today issued the following statement regarding Canada’s request for consultations with the United States under Chapter 31 of the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) with respect to continued U.S. safeguard tariffs on Canadian solar products:“Canada is a trusted partner of the United States with long-established cross-border supply chains that enhance North American competitiveness, strengthen U.S. national security, and benefit citizens on both sides of the border.“Canada has requested consultations with the United States on its continued tariffs on solar products, as first steps in the CUSMA dispute settlement process. These tariffs are unwarranted and clearly violate the provisions and the spirit of CUSMA.“As we work to rebuild our economies and overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada and the United States must work together through strong cross-border climate action to attract investment in the North American economy, cut pollution, strengthen supply chains, and grow jobs for people on both sides of the border in the increasingly competitive low-carbon global economy.“Canada will always stand up for its workers and against unjustified trade actions. If Canada and the United States are not able to resolve this action through consultations, Canada may request the establishment of a dispute settlement panel to adjudicate the matter.”Quick factsEvery day, almost $3 billion worth of goods and services crosses the Canada-United States border. In 2019, this amounted to nearly $1 trillion worth of goods and services exchanged between Canada and the United States.Since they were imposed in early 2018, the U.S. safeguard tariffs have caused Canada’s exports of solar products to the United States to decline by as much as 82%.In 1994, the United States, Mexico, and Canada created the largest free trade region in the world with the North American Free Trade Agreement, generating economic growth and helping to raise the standard of living for the people of all 3 member countries.The new CUSMA came into force on July 1, 2020, preserving key elements of the long-lasting trading relationship and incorporating new and updated provisions that seek to address 21st-century trade issues. /Public Release.

Corey Beck Named CEO of the Family Coppola

first_imgHome Industry News Releases Corey Beck Named CEO of the Family CoppolaIndustry News ReleasesWine BusinessCorey Beck Named CEO of the Family CoppolaBy Press Release – February 2, 2018 185 0 AdvertisementFrancis Ford Coppola Winery Veteran to Oversee Operations at Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Virginia Dare Winery, Great Women Spirits & Café ZoetropeCorey Beck, photo by Amanda Marsalis for The Family CoppolaGEYSERVILLE, Calif. (February 2, 2018) – The Family Coppola announced today the appointment of Corey Beck as CEO. Beck, who most recently served as president & director of winemaking for The Family Coppola, has more than 20 years of experience in the wine industry. Beginning his career in viticulture at Napa Valley’s renowned Chateau Montelena, he joined The Family Coppola in 1998 where he rose from assistant winemaker to winemaker to ultimately president and director of winemaking. A respected member of the Sonoma County community, Beck is a past president of the Sonoma County Vintners and is regularly involved in a variety of wine industry symposiums and advisory councils. In November 2016, Wine Business Monthly named Beck one of the “Top 50 Leaders,” one of the most sought-after wine industry recognitions.“Corey has been an integral part of this company since joining nearly 20 years ago,” said Francis Ford Coppola. “His passion for winemaking and dedication to the staff are unmatched and I’m proud to appoint him as CEO.”In this new expanded role, Beck will oversee Francis Ford Coppola Winery and Virginia Dare Winery in Geyserville and the newly launched Great Women Spirits. Café Zoetrope in San Francisco will also fall under Beck’s responsibilities.About The Family Coppola The Family Coppola encompasses all of the things Francis loves most—cinema, wine, food, resorts and adventure—and embraces quality, authenticity and pleasure as a backbone to each of these vibrant business endeavors. Anchored in Sonoma County, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, known for its superior level of quality and integrity, is, as Francis puts it, “a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life: food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life.” Coppola’s second foray into Sonoma County came in 2015 with the launch of Virginia Dare Winery, American wines since 1835, ushering in a new era of elevated quality and vineyard-specific wines. The Family Coppola are lovers not only of wine, but spirits as well. Great Women Spirits—small-batch, house-crafted, classically styled spirits—are a collection of spirits as unique and remarkable as the women they honor. The Family Coppola Hideaways are a collection of unique properties where adventure meets serenity. Drawing upon inspiration from his film career and travels around the globe to the far-reaching corners of the world, Francis created each resort, embracing off-the-beaten-track locations and making each locale an ideal destination for exploring the natural wonders of the area while relaxing in tranquil surroundings. Additionally, The Family Coppola operates a venerable film production company, American Zoetrope; the award-winning literary and art magazine, Zoetrope: All-Story; Cafe Zoetrope in San Francisco’s iconic Sentinel Building in North Beach; and Mammarella Foods, an authentic line of premium organic pastas and sauces. www.TheFamilyCoppola.com.Advertisement Share Twitter ReddIt Facebook Pinterest TAGSCorey BeckFamily CoppolaFrancis Ford Coppola Winerypeople Linkedin Email Previous articleAcker Merrall & Condit Announces Grande Fête de BourgogneNext articleM.

Head to Head: Debating Du Toit’s decision

first_img‘  124  45 Pieter-Steph du Toit ‘ CRAIG LEWIS and WADE PRETORIUS debate Pieter-Steph Du Toit’s decision to stay with the Stormers when a big-money move abroad was on the table.READ: Du Toit, Marx contract cases still under reviewCraig: Du Toit saw the bigger pictureFor all those who followed the Du Toit saga, you can rest assured PSDT himself would have been frustrated to be caught in the middle of it all.It’s important to remember the players didn’t ask for the 21-day exit window. As I understand it, this was a unique clause first broached in meeting with the player agents, and ultimately a three-week ‘compromise’ of sorts was signed off in a collective agreement.Before any of this, Du Toit was just focused on his recovery from a career-threatening injury, and making the most of some time on the family farm in Riebeek-Kasteel.Almost inevitably, though, the World Rugby Player of the Year became the unwitting central figure in the SA rugby industry ‘transfer deadline’ story due to the fact he is one of the most sought-after players in the game.Suddenly there was so much more to think about as the option to exit SA and the Stormers was tabled, but from almost all I’ve heard is that his overwhelming first intention was to stay.Yes, the waters got muddied as certain amendments and ‘sweeteners’ were explored for his next contract but, again, he had his reasons to recommit to the Stormers, and eventually this was the action taken.Du Toit’s value has surely never been higher and he could have opted to head abroad for big bucks, and yet it’s clear he saw the bigger picture. Almost quite literally.By separating his image rights from his salary terms, PSDT has seized control over another revenue stream, and found the means to ensure he could justify his desire to remain in South Africa until at least the end of the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour.At the end of the day, Du Toit is happy where he is right now, and in a year or so you can rest assured there will still be plenty of options for him to explore should he fancy an overseas stint for a couple of seasons in the buildup to the 2023 World Cup.READ: Du Toit commits to WPWade: He should’ve cashed inPersonally I’m relieved that this transfer saga is over … and that rugby doesn’t have a football-style transfer window. It was a chaotic affair with mixed messages and even reliable information seemingly being tossed to the side every day. In the end, the biggest talking point – will Pieter-Steph be staying or going – was clouded in doubt and confusing statements. That said, he’s staying and I’m debating that it was the wrong move.By all accounts, he’s a proper servant to those he cares about – his family and friends and his employers. But factoring in both his near career-ending injury and the modern economic climate, it seems utterly bizarre he wouldn’t set himself up with three years in France. Or England. Or Japan.R75 million for three years makes sense. And with the rand’s market ‘strength’ it appears that sum would be vastly higher when he returns home to sip on the Kloovenburg wines. Then throw in the fact that he had to take the same salary cut as the rest of his colleagues. Will owning his image rights offset that? Doubt it.Leaving wouldn’t have tainted his legacy in South Africa nor harmed his chances of adding even more ‘oomph’ to his rising status as a Bok phenom. He would still line up as a kingpin in Jacques Nienaber’s XV to face the British & Irish Lions in 2021. We’ve seen enough from those playing and/or returning abroad to argue that a stint abroad only serves to improve them as players.He has never been more marketable than he is right now. The world’s best player and one of only three to win the SA Rugby Player of the Year award three times. I may run into some trouble by saying this, but there’s nothing to suggest he will win Vodacom Super Rugby with the Cape franchise – which could be a player’s only on-field reason for staying.There are, after all, 75-million reasons in the pros section of his own ‘pros and cons’ list for taking up the biggest deal rugby has seen. He earned it the hard way and we know sport can be cruel; we cannot predict his value in a year’s time and it could be said it’s 50-50 at best that he gets a deal on par with the one reportedly offered.If he helps lead the Stormers to next year’s Super Rugby title, I will ask my local grocer to bake me a humble pie. Sure, he doesn’t really need all that money. I don’t know about his finances but it would be safe to assume that one day when he retires, he’ll do so safe in the comforts he’s earned on the field along the way.But, back to football terms. Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t content to stay at Manchester United and made the leap to go head to head with Lionel Messi in LaLiga. And then as the clock wound down, he again made the bold move to move to Italy. My gut says PSDT would’ve benefited both financially and skill-wise from a season or three abroad.WATCH: Week eight in lockdown with the StormersPhoto: Ryan Wilkisky/BackpagePix ‘ World Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVMaverick coach Eddie Jones has named his Test dream team made up of players he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?

Atlanta Board of Education Approves New Charter School

first_img Related Stories The Atlanta Board of Education gave the green light to a new charter school Monday over the objection of the district’s superintendent.??:??Board members unanimously approved the Atlanta Classical Academy. Superintendent Erroll Davis recommended against the creation of any new charter schools while the Georgia Supreme Court decides if the schools will have to help district pay off more than $500 million dollars in unfunded pension liability.Board Chair Reuben McDaniel says board members are concerned about the liability but did not want to turn down a high-quality school application.“Both the superintendent knew and we knew that this was really his recommendation based on the overall economic issue, and I think as a board we really are pushing to try to figure out how we solve the pension liability without unfairly burdening charters or denying charter schools that would be good for students.”Davis said he’s not anti-charter school, but in a scarce resource environment he could not advocate increasing the burden on traditional schools to create non-traditional environments. Atlanta Classical Academy is scheduled to open in North Atlanta next fall. The K-8 school plans to emphasize literature, composition, history, science, math and language.WABE’s broadcast license is held by the Atlanta Board of Education.
