WatchTrudeaus pushback at G7 will cost Canadians a lot of money Trump

SINGAPORE — U.S. President Donald Trump says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s assertion that Canada “will not be pushed around” will end up costing Canadians “a lot of money.”Trump gave a wide-ranging news conference in Singapore on Tuesday following his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in which the two leaders spoke for several hours.Among the many topics the president addressed with reporters afterward was his recent Twitter campaign against Trudeau, whom he has called “dishonest” and “weak.”Those comments came after Trudeau’s closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec on Saturday, when the prime minister said he had pushed back against the Trump administration’s tariffs on steel and aluminum.Trudeau ‘probably didn’t know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions’Donald Trump Cole Burston/Bloomberg Trump says Trudeau “probably didn’t know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions.“I see the television and he’s giving a news conference about how he ‘will not be pushed around’ by the United States. And I say, ‘Push him around? We just shook hands!”‘ Trump said Tuesday.“We finished the (G7) meeting and really everybody was happy.”Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America’s biggest trade partners, including Canada.One particular source of his ire recently has been Canada’s supply management system, which levels tariffs of up to 300 per cent on imported dairy products.“It’s very unfair to our farmers, and it’s very unfair to the people of our country,” Trump said Tuesday in Singapore.“It’s very unfair, and it’s very unfair to our workers, and I’m gonna straighten it out. And it won’t even be tough.” Trump says he watched that news conference on his way to Singapore, and was upset because he thought he and Trudeau had had a positive meeting in Charlevoix.Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the closing G7 speech.

Judge approves 15 billion Volkswagen emissions settlement

by The Associated Press Posted Oct 25, 2016 9:20 am MDT Last Updated Oct 25, 2016 at 1:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SAN FRANCISCO – A federal judge in San Francisco has approved a nearly $15 billion court settlement of most claims against Volkswagen for its emissions-cheating scandal.U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer signed the order Tuesday approving the largest auto-scandal settlement in the nation’s history.Volkswagen admitted last year that about 475,000 VWs and Audis with 2-litre four-cylinder diesel engines were programmed to cheat on emissions tests. Under the settlement, owners of the affected cars have until Sept. 1, 2018, to decide whether to have the car fixed or repurchased. Volkswagen could start buying back the cars as early as next month if the owner submits a claim.Most of the owners are expected to sell their cars back to VW after discovering they exceed U.S. emissions standards in real-world driving conditions. In addition to having their cars bought back, owners can each get cash payments of $5,100 to $10,000.“The settlement is fair, reasonable and adequate,” Breyer wrote in his order, posted Tuesday morning by the court.VW will pay attorney fees and costs, including up to $324 million in fees and $8.5 million in out-of-pocket costs.A separate Canadian class-action lawsuit is before the Ontario Superior Court. The next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 19 and 20.The U.S. settlement releases legal claims from most of the 2-litre VW owners, but it doesn’t affect larger 3-litre six-cylinder diesels, which also cheated on tests. The settlement also doesn’t end any claims against parts supplier Robert Bosch, which drew up the cheating software.Judge Breyer gave preliminary approval to the settlement in July. The order says that 336,612 owners of 2-litre diesels have registered for the settlement and 3,298 have opted out.VW must make payments available within 10 business days from Tuesday, according to the order.Breyer wrote that the priority was to get the cars off the road as soon as possible, and the settlement accomplishes that. The polluting cars emitted as much as 40 times the allowable limit for nitrogen oxide, a gas that can cause human respiratory problems.The settlement calls for the German automaker to spend up to $10 billion to buy back or repair the affected cars. The company will buy back the cars at the National Automobile Dealers Association clean trade-in price before the cheating was made public on Sept. 18, 2015.Some owners have objected, saying they should receive the full purchase price of their vehicles. Mark Dietrich, an Audi owner from San Francisco, told the judge last week that Volkswagen played owners for fools and the settlement didn’t go far enough to compensate them for the company’s fraud.But Volkswagen attorney Robert Giuffra encouraged Breyer to approve the deal, saying it was good for buyers and would help the company regain people’s trust.The settlement also includes $2.7 billion for unspecified environmental mitigation and an additional $2 billion to promote zero-emissions vehicles.The scandal has damaged Volkswagen’s reputation and hurt its sales. The company is still facing potentially billions more in fines and penalties and possible criminal charges.The company said in April that it has set aside $18.2 billion to cover the cost of the global scandal, which erupted in September 2015 when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said Volkswagen had fitted many of its cars with software to fool emissions tests. Car owners and the U.S. Department of Justice sued.The software recognized when the cars were being tested on a treadmill and turned on pollution controls. The controls were turned off when the cars returned to the road. The EPA alleged the scheme let the cars spew more than 40 times the allowable limit of nitrogen oxide, which can cause respiratory problems in humans.Through September of this year, VW Group’s sales in the U.S. are down nearly 7 per cent from 2015 figures to just under 386,000. The Volkswagen brand fared worse, with sales down 12.5 per cent to just over 231,000, according to Autodata Corp. The VW group includes the Audi, VW, Bentley and Lamborghini brands.– With files from The Canadian Press FILE – In this Thursday, April 21, 2016, file photo, Joyce Ertel Hulbert, owner of a 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI, holds a sign while interviewed outside of the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco. A federal judge in San Francisco is facing a deadline on whether to approve a nearly $15 billion deal over Volkswagen’s emissions cheating scandal that gives most affected car owners the option of having the company buy back their vehicles. U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer said at a hearing last week that he was strongly inclined to give the deal final approval and would issue a ruling by Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016.

Samaras They lied there were other ways

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece’s main opposition leader Antonis Samaras said last weekend that the Papandreou government has mishandled the economy and had implemented the wrong mix of policies, whilst addressing the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair. The socialist government has told several lies, the International Monetary Fund and European Union memorandum was not the only solution for Greece, but they were forced into it because they turned a debt crisis into a borrowing crisis.Speaking at his first major annual policy speech, the leader of New Democracy said “tough austerity policies could have been avoided had the government acted in time”. However, he qualified that his policies wouldn’t breach promises made by the Greek state to overseas lenders. “The socialist government has told several lies, the International Monetary Fund and European Union memorandum was not the only solution for Greece, but they were forced into it because they turned a debt crisis into a borrowing crisis,” he said. Samaras said the government should have borrowed on the bond markets in January to secure enough cash for the year at a fair rate. Samaras referred to PASOK’s “seven lies”. One of these, he said, is that the agreement with Greece’s creditors – offering austerity measures in exchange for 110 billion euros – was “supposedly inevitable”. Samaras proposed seven reforms, including the reduction of taxation once Greece emerges from the stewardship of its creditors and a gradual reduction of social security contributions.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic discusses MourinhoPogba relationship

first_imgFormer Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic shared his theory on why Jose Mourinho failed to bring out the best out of Paul Pogba at United.Ibrahimovic believes Mourinho’s failure to give Pogba confidence was the reason for the breakdown in their relationship during their time together at United.The former Chelsea manager was sacked last month and Pogba has since produced some of his best football in a United shirt since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker manager, scoring five goals and assisting four more in the six matches he has played under the Norwegian.When asked about what changed, Ibrahimovic claimed Pogba is the type of footballer who goes beyond tactical organization and balance and needs to be “free.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“There are these players that need to be free, they need to feel free to do what they are able to do under the disciple of the coach,” Ibrahimovic told ESPN FC.“Obviously, he has his tactics, he has that, but some players they go above these limits, and you need to let them be free, and I think Paul is one of them.”“Paul didn’t feel confidence from the coach [Mourinho], and the coach didn’t feel confident for Paul.”“It’s difficult to perform as a player if you don’t have confidence from the coach and you don’t have that energy, that motivation, and Jose felt the same thing about Paul.”last_img

India to Cut Stake in Staterun Banks Raise 26 bn

first_imgThe Indian government has approved plans to sell part of its stake in state-run banks and raise about $25.76 billion, according to a statement issued on Wednesday.  State Bank Of India, largest public-sector bank in IndiaReutersThe decision was taken at a meeting of the Union Cabinet. The sale is expected to happen in a phased manner, till 2019.  The 27 state-run banks of Asia’s third-largest economy currently have state ownership ranging from 56 percent to 84 percent. These banks account account for 70 percent of the total outstanding loans of about $1 trillion. The government would continue to hold 52 percent stake in the banks after the stake sale.The banks also need an estimated $60 billion to build a buffer against bad loans in line with new global regulations.Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha had told the parliament in November that a reduction in government stake in the banks would reduce capital injections substantially, as mandated by the new norms.Over the last decade, the government funded these banks by about $13 billion. However the need to lower the budget deficit could limit the options available to the government on continued funding for the banks.Over the next four years, the government would have to pump in ₹788.95 billion ($12.70 billion,) to maintain its 52 percent stake. Dividend outflow for the same period would mop up almost ₹345 billion ($5.56 billion.)While the bigger state-run banks could see positive reaction to its share sales, smaller ones could languish. Most state-run banks are burdened by high levels of bad debt and corporate governance issues.A panel appointed by the RBI had recommended the government to reduce its stake in state lenders to less than 50 percent.last_img

Trump Pelosi clash over Mexico border wall

first_imgThis combination of file pictures created on 20 January, 2019 shows US president Donald Trump as he arrives at the White House in Washington, DC, on 19 January, 2019,and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-NY) outside the House Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on 3 January 2019US president Donald Trump bitterly attacked top Democrat Nancy Pelosi on Sunday and she again insisted that he end the government shutdown before border security talks can begin, but there were hints of possible movement.Trump lashed out on Twitter a day after Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives, dismissed as a “non-starter” his offer to extend temporary protection to about a million immigrants in return for $5.7 billion for the wall he wants on the Mexican border to fulfil a signature campaign promise.Government shutdowns are a disruptive political ritual that have occurred in various administrations and are almost unique to the American system. But this one is the longest on record. It has left about 800,000 federal workers unpaid — among them airport security officers, FBI agents, museum workers, and Coast Guard members.”Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat,” the president tweeted. “She is so petrified of the ‘lefties’ in her party that she has lost control.”It was Trump’s most direct attack on Pelosi since the partial government shutdown began, and appeared to reflect a mounting sense of frustration.Pointedly ignoring his personal comments, Pelosi on Twitter emphasized the need to end the impasse, which has inflicted increasing pain after one month, with some government employees having to turn to food banks or local charities to get by.”Reopen the government, let workers get their paychecks and then we can discuss how we can come together to protect the border. #EndTheShutdown,” she tweeted.Good-faith compromiseWhile Pelosi and other Democrats dismissed Trump’s offer, Republicans insisted that it represented actual movement by the president.Vice president Mike Pence, who has been leading the administration’s contacts with Congress, said the Senate would put the proposal to a vote as early as Tuesday. He called it “a good-faith compromise.”The planned vote also reflects a shift by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. He insisted previously that he would not take up any shutdown bill unless both Trump and Democratic leaders backed it.”In a very real sense, what President Trump did here was he set the table for a deal,” Pence said on “Fox News Sunday.”The bill’s fate was far from clear. Republicans hope to lure the votes of a few Democrats from Trump-friendly states to reach the 60 votes needed, but they may lose some hard-line conservatives in the process.Most blame RepublicansThe Trump administration — increasingly blamed by Americans for the shutdown — is trying to balance demands of those hard-liners and Democrats who adamantly oppose spending the $5.7 billion Trump wants for a wall.Trump has regularly warned of what he says is a serious criminal threat from undocumented migrants entering the country, which is grappling with a surge in arrivals by families and children who say they are fleeing poverty and violence in Central America.Democrats have offered more than $2 billion for a range of other border-security measures.They assailed Trump’s new offer as cynical, noting that it was the president who — by moving earlier to end the DACA program protecting 700,000 young immigrants and to expel about 300,000 others in a separate program — had placed in jeopardy many of those for whom he now offers temporary protection.But anti-immigrant voices also attacked Trump’s offer as tantamount to amnesty for the undocumented — a toxic concept for many conservatives.”No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3 year extension of DACA,” Trump said in another tweet. DACA was former president Barack Obama’s program to shield undocumented immigrants who entered the country as children.Trump said that there would be “no big push” to remove the 11 million people in the country illegally, before warning: ‘but be careful, Nancy!”His immigration crackdown has not stanched the influx of migrants, and a new group of about 400 Hondurans — the fourth since October 13 — headed north on Saturday, officials there said.Still, as the costs of the US shutdown mounted, both sides in the standoff appeared to be casting about cautiously for a road ahead.”The vote this week (in the Senate) is not to pass the bill,” said Senator James Lankford, a Republican, “It’s to open up and say, can we debate this? Can we amend it? Can we make changes? Let’s find a way to get the government open.”Representative Bennie Thompson, a Democrat who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, said that “I would not rule out a wall in certain circumstances.”He suggested that Democrats were amenable to negotiating if Trump would stop demonizing the party and its leaders and provide assurances that he would not suddenly shift positions.”The notion that we have come from a (focus on a) wall to some other thing is moving it along,” he told ABC’s “This Week,” “but we have to sit down and talk.”Representative Tulsi Gabbard, who plans to seek the presidency in 2020, told CNN it was urgent that both sides “come together and have a real conversation and hash out the differences.”But representative James Clyburn, the third-ranking House Democrat, insisted that the government must first be reopened.last_img

Ward 8 Dems Dont Endorse in Chairman AtLarge Race

first_imgBy James Wright, Special to the AFRO, jwright@afro.comThe chairman of the D.C. Council, and one of the at-large council members, didn’t receive an endorsement from one of the most influential political organizations in the District of Columbia.On April 21, the Ward 8 Democrats held their endorsement meeting for the positions of the District Attorney General, chairman of the D.C. Council, and the Democratic at-large seat on the council at the D.C. Vehicle for Hire Department in the ward. Ward 8 Democratic voters were eligible to cast ballots for the three positions and there were members of the D.C. Democratic State Committee members from other wards to police the process and see that it ran smoothly.Anita Bonds is running for re-election as a Democratic at-large council member. (AFRO File Photo)The voting took place from 12-2 p.m.The endorsements are for the June 19 Democratic primary. The winner of the Democratic primary for the three positions are favorites to win the Nov. 6 general election because the city is 74 percent Democratic, according to D.C. Board of Elections statistics.For a candidate to receive an endorsement from the Ward 8 Democrats, they needed to get 60 percent of the votes that were cast. In this instance, a candidate would have had to get 46 votes out of the 78 cast.D.C. Council member Anita Bonds (D-At Large) is running for re-election to a second full term. Bonds is running against Ward 8 activist Aaron Holmes, environmental leader Jeremiah Lowery and real estate professional Marcus Goodwin in the June 19 Democratic Party primary.Bonds got 33 votes, 13 short of the endorsement while Holmes got 21, Goodwin received 12 and Lowery had eight. Despite not getting the Ward 8 Democrats nod, Bonds told the AFRO she was satisfied with the result.“I am pleased that I came and participated,” she said. “I would note that one of my opponents came from this ward and I got more votes than he did.”WHO IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?Goodwin credited the leadership of the Ward 8 Democrats for having an open process. “The result was nothing profound to me but I take my hat off to the Ward 8 Democrats for giving the candidates a fair opportunity,” he said to the AFRO. Goodwin noted that the late Marion Barry, the four-term mayor and elected four times to represent the ward on the D.C. Council, would have supported Bonds and she would have gotten the endorsement outright because of his influence.During the council candidates’ forum that took place during the voting, all agreed that more affordable housing is needed in the District and the educational system is due for major improvements. They also agreed that the District should have a state-of the art hospital in its East End and not a jail, whether it is publicly or privately financed.In the chairman’s race, D.C. Council Chair Phil Mendelson came up three votes shy of winning the endorsement. However, there are three provisional ballots that need to be counted and they have the potential to earn the chairman the endorsement.Former D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute leader Ed Lazere had 20 votes to perennial candidate Calvin Gurley, the only African American in the race, who got eight. District Attorney General Karl Racine has no opponent in the Democratic primary and easily got past the 60 percent threshold.last_img

Diablo III accounts are being hacked

first_imgAnyone who picked up Diablo III at launch has no doubt suffered a lot of frustration when trying to play the game. The mere mention of “Error 33” will make many wince. But it seems there’s a new threat to advancing your character through the game: accounts are being hacked.Over the weekend a growing number of reports were logged of accounts being hacked. In each case the legitimate user loses control of their login and friends find themselves talking to a complete stranger. They usually turn out to be someone who has purchased the account and is now playing in their place. Or at least, that’s what is being said during a chat session. It could actually be the hacker using the account and making up an excuse to distance themselves from the hijacking.It’s unclear why this is able to happen, but it seems to be occurring regardless of whether your account is protected by one of Blizzard’s authenticators or not. That suggests the hackers are somehow hijacking active sessions, which would bypass the need to recheck security on that account.For the affected gamer it’s a case of contacting Blizzard and waiting for your account to be rolled back to a pre-hacked state. That inevitably leads to some progress being lost. The hacker/s is also taking the opportunity to steal gold and items, of course.Apparently Blizzard took the European servers offline on Sunday for 4 hours following many of these reports. It could be the downtime was related and they have patched the hole. But be aware that even with Blizzard’s requirement for a constant Internet connection, your account is vulnerable to attack.Read more at Eurogamer.netlast_img

The ZS3 expands the company’s family of Zone Sonography Technology (ZST) systems. The platform provides expanded penetration for greater diagnostic capabilities.“The ZS3 offers superb high frequency imaging in the abdomen with enormous penetration,” said Jörg Bönhof, M.D., Stiftung Deutsch Klinik für Diagnostik, Wiesbaden, Germany. “This makes structures visible [that] I have never seen before. For example, I can now visualize normal amounts of fluid around organs, such as the liver, spleen and bowel, even with the most challenging of patients.”The ZS3 uses Zonare’s Living Technology, which delivers ultrasound imaging excellence based on a dynamic and open architecture that allows continual platform evolvement to meet the changing needs of clinicians. Zone Sonography Technology is an innovative approach to echo data acquisition and image formation. Using a small number of large “zones,” ZST acquires ultrasound data up to ten times faster than conventional systems and implements the full reality of data acquisition and management in software rather than hardware.“We have previously set expectations high with ZST,” said Glen McLaughlin, founder and chief technology officer for Zonare. “However, we believe the performance of the ZS3 will be even higher. This addition to our growing suite of ultrasound systems will provide a significant additional option for fulfilling imaging needs.”The ZS3 moves ZST into the premium ultrasound market. The initial system will have a wide variety of transducer options with more under development as the technology continues to grow. Most transducers also are compatible with the z.one ultra and z.one ultra sp systems as part of the Zonare family of ZST products. The ZS3 system is offered with a five-year warranty, including transducers, at no additional cost to the clinician. Software updates are covered by the warranty while enrichments, such as new applications or transducers, will be offered as purchasable options.“Our goal is to expand our family of robust ultrasound choices while providing an unsurpassed and highly reliable platform,” said Timothy Marcotte, president and CEO of ZONARE. “The ZS3 is one of the only premium ultrasound systems on the market today [that] offers such an extended warranty.

first_img Top Stories Through six games, Arizona is 3-3, and they have yet to win a game because of their quarterback. But they have lost games because of him. In the win over Detroit, Arizona got four field goals from Jay Feely, a blocked field goal on special teams by Justin Bethel and big plays by Andre Ellington and Tyrann Mathieu. In the win over Tampa Bay, the Cardinals overcame two Palmer interceptions and won behind two picks by Patrick Peterson, a fumble recovery by Matt Shaugnhessy and a defense that held the Buccaneers to 253 yards, including just 45 yards on 27 carries by Doug Martin. That, by the way, was the game head coach Bruce Arians called the Cardinals offense “putrid.” Against Carolina, the Cardinals overcame three more interceptions by Palmer and relied on a defense that had seven sacks and three interceptions to lead the way.At some point, Palmer has to win his teammates and fans over by winning a game for Arizona. He has to have a game in which he limits his mistakes and leads the Cardinals. He is more than capable of being the catalyst in some Cardinals wins. Right now, Arizona is 3-3 because of special teams and defense. The offense has yet to deliver, and that is on Palmer. It would be nice on a Big Red Monday to praise Palmer for leading the team to victory and not rip him for another lackluster performance.

To win consistently in this league, you need to have a good quarterback. In a league with so much parity, a quarterback will be directly responsible for many of a team’s wins.
