Small business confidence gets stronger in February CFIB

Small businesses appear to be more optimistic in early 2013, the latest survey conducted by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business shows. Its Monthly Business Barometer rose a half a point to 66.2 in February on a scale of 0 to 100. An index level above 50 means owners who expect their operations to be stronger in the next year outnumber those expecting a weaker performance. Small business owners in Alberta remain the most optimistic in Canada, with an index of 71, closely followed by Saskatchewan at 69.8 and Newfoundland and Labrador at 67.0. Ontario (65.3), Nova Scotia (65.3), British Columbia (64.9), Quebec (64.6), Manitoba (63.4), and New Brunswick (62.2) are slightly below the national average while Prince Edward Island (54.1) saw a sharp drop in business confidence. The CFIB also says full-time hiring plans are better than seasonal norms, with 26% of businesses expecting to hire more staff in the next few months, and only 6% planning to cut back. “For the first time in awhile, small business owners are reporting index numbers that indicate the economy is growing nearer its potential,” said CFIB chief economist and vice-president Ted Mallett. “The January and February results suggest Canadians are seeing modest, but widespread economic growth.” The February findings are based on 974 responses from a random sample of CFIB members, to a controlled-access web survey. the findings are statistically accurate to plus or minus 3.2% 19 times in 20.Getty Images/Thinkstock read more

Commentary Sundays game between Browns Bengals offers both teams a chance at

Despite their record, the Cleveland Browns (0-5) have played competitively in every game this year. Last week, they led the defending-champion New York Giants 14-0 before their prolific offense caught fire. Now they host the Cincinnati Bengals (3-2), who are coming off a disappointing loss at the hands of the Miami Dolphins. In that game, Cincinnati’s high-flying passing game was stifled by a defense that had been ranked 30th against the pass. Trailing by four points in the fourth quarter at home, the Bengals failed to generate offense when they needed it the most with their last two drives ending in a missed field goal and an interception to essentially end the game. Last week’s loss leaves room for questions. Are the Bengals the team that averaged 13 points per game in their two losses or the squad that kept opponents guessing on their way to scoring 33 points a game during a three-game win streak? One of their victims during that run was the Browns. But Cleveland’s secondary looks to prevent that sort of production this time around. In week two, when the Browns allowed Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton to throw for 318 yards, they were without a key component of their defensive backfield, shutdown cornerback Joe Haden. Now the third-year corner is back after serving a four-game suspension and will be assigned the task of blanketing Bengals receiver A.J. Green, who has 365 yards and three touchdowns receiving in his last three games. Should Haden be able to shake off the rust and take away Dalton’s favorite target, the Bengals may be exposed for their lack of go-to options on offense. After Green, there is a steep decline in the talent at the wide receiver position. Andrew Hawkins has done an admirable job in the short passing game and rookie Armon Binns has been relevant. But neither have shown the ability to carry the load. If Green is locked up, Dalton will need tight end Jermaine Gresham to step his game up and play like the Pro Bowler he is. Meanwhile, Cincinnati’s running game has not been reliable. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is averaging just 3.3 yards per game and has already fumbled twice. Looking to get something going against the Dolphins, the Bengals turned to running back Bernard Scott. The career-backup showed signs of life with eight carries for 40 yards but sustained a knee injury and will be lost for the season. Cincinnati cannot afford another weak showing on offense against a Cleveland team that will be on the attack. While the Browns know they may not have the Bengals’ superior offensive personnel or chemistry the likes of the Dalton-to-Green connection, they are not intimidated by Cincinnati’s defense. In week two, rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden passing and rookie running back Trent Richardson each had their most productive games of the year. Weeden passed for 322 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions while Richardson rushed for 109 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries. Playing at home with their pride on the line, Cleveland will give the Bengals a good fight, hoping a win will validate and encourage a young squad that is making progress but has nothing to show for it yet. Cincinnati, meanwhile, looks to prove that last week’s game was a fluke and that their offense can score with the best of them. Another strong showing in the passing game will silence their critics and prove the Bengals are a force to be reckoned with. read more

Reliance Defence gets DIPP nod for 12 industrial licenses

first_imgReliance defence, a subsidiary of Reliance Infrastructure Limited, has received approval for 12 industrial licenses by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP). The licenses have been granted for manufacturing defence equipment, which is required by the armed forces.The DIPP gave the approval to address the defence programmes in India. The company had received conditional clearance in November 2015, and got approval from the home ministry last week, the Business Standard reported. “The foray of Reliance into these areas will give added traction to centre’s initiative for Make in India and Skill India initiatives,” a company spokesperson was quoted as saying by the publication.Reliance Defence manufactures weapon systems, equipments and hardware to meet the needs of the Indian Army, Navy and Air force.Presently, it plans to address the requirement of the Indian Navy by building light-utility aircraft valued at Rs 20,000 crore and an additional order worth Rs 9,000 crore for an amphibious aircraft, the BusinessLine reported. The Indian Air Force’s requirement in the next 10 years will reportedly be worth over Rs 60,000 crore. In addition, the Indian Army will also spend about Rs 50,000 crore in the next 15 years on different types of combat vehicles. Reliance Infrastructure stock was trading at Rs 512.70 at around 1.28 p.m. on Thursday, down 0.56 percent from its previous close.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img read more

Sugar output estimates trigger bitter war among companies in India

first_imgA commodity used to sweeten, sugar has set-off a bitter war of words after industry body, the Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA), revised downwards production estimates on Wednesday. The body has accused “vested interests” of confusing the markets with “various” output and consumption numbers to artificially lift prices globally and profiteer.Read: India’s sugar production rises 11% in season 2016-17 till December 15, says ISMAOutput estimates were revised to 21.3 million tonnes for sugar crop season October 2016-September 2017 (SS 2016-17) from 23.4 million tonnes given last September in view of drought-like conditions in some sugarcane-growing states.”Some people, with vested interests, are trying to confuse the market by simply throwing various numbers for sugar production and consumption for the country in 2016-17 sugar season. Their ulterior motive is to create panic to either artificially push up global prices because they are holding a position in the futures market or want to somehow force sugar imports into India,” T. Sarita Reddy, president, ISMA, said in an update on Friday.While drought and likely low yields in Maharashtra and Karnataka led to downward revision of output estimates for SS 2016-17, lower offtake by users prompted the ISMA to scale down consumption figures.”…based on actual sugar sales in Oct-Dec, 2016, and the trend in Jan. 2017, and reports of lower off-take by beverage manufacturers, sweet makers etc., the sugar consumption estimates for the year was revised downwards to 242 lakh tons (24.2 million tonnes),” Redddy said. The ISMA said rumours on production estimates lower than the one given by the body are being done with a purpose.”A few speculators and sugar refiners continue to spread rumours, to suit their personal vested interests, and create opportunities for themselves to import sugar. Their statements on shortage of sugar, mostly made without any analysis and research, is causing speculation and volatility in the sugar market and spiking sugar prices unnecessarily,” it said.India is the second-largest producer of sugar in the world after Brazil and the largest consumer of the commodity.A mismatch in production and consumption gives an opportunity for certain business players to import sugar globally, something that is unwarranted since the next SS is expected to witness a bounce back in sugarcane and sugar output, benefiting both farmers and millers, Reddy said. Sugar production upto January 15, 2017 in the current SS was 5 percent lower at 10.48 million tonnes YoY while dispatches between October-December 2016 were down 8.5 percent to 5.5 lakh tonnes, YoY, according to an ISMA update.Listed companies in sugar business in India include Oudh Sugar Mills, Dhampur Sugar Mills, Dwarikesh Sugar Industries, Shree Renuka Sugars, EID Parry (India), Balrampur Chini Mills, Bannari Amman Sugars and Uttam Sugar Mills.In a related development, there is a speculation that the Centre may scrap PDS sugar subsidy given to states for selling under lower prices to low-income families, resulting in a saving of about Rs 4,500 crore annually.The states procure about 2.7 million tonnes of sugar every year and sell it at the subsidised rate of Rs 13.50 per kg under the PDS and get Rs 18.50 per kg as subsidy from the Central government, reported the BusinessLine.The department of food and public distribution under the ministry of consumer affairs says that about 50 million sugarcane farmers and around 5 lakh workers directly employed in sugar mills.last_img read more

Putin wins another 6yr term to rule Russia

first_imgVladimir Putin cruised to victory in Russia’s presidential election on Sunday, giving him at least another six years in power as Moscow’s relations with the West become increasingly strained.Putin, who has ruled Russia for almost two decades, recorded his best ever election performance with more than 76 percent of the vote, but the opposition cried foul.Monitors reported ballot stuffing and other cases of alleged fraud as the Kremlin pushed for a high turnout to give greater legitimacy to Putin’s historic fourth term.The Russian strongman ran against seven other candidates, but his most vocal critic Alexei Navalny was barred from the ballot for legal reasons and the final outcome was never in doubt.”I see in this (result) the confidence and hope of our people,” Putin said in an address to a crowd of supporters on a square next to the Kremlin after exit polls put him on track for a resounding victory.”Our thoughts will turn to the future of our great country and the future of our children,” said the man who is already Russia’s longest-serving leader since Stalin.About 107 million Russians were eligible to cast ballots and in its latest update on participation, three hours before polls closed in Moscow, the central election commission said turnout was at 60 percent.Authorities used both the carrot and the stick to boost engagement in the polls.Selfie competitions, giveaways, food festivals and children’s entertainers were laid on at polling stations in a bid to create a festive atmosphere around the election.But employees of state and private companies reported coming under pressure to vote, while students were threatened with problems in their exams or even expulsion if they did not take part, according to the independent Novaya Gazeta newspaper.According to central election commission data with 90 percent of ballots counted, Putin took 76.4 percent of the vote, well ahead of his nearest competitor Communist Party candidate Pavel Grudinin who was on 12 percent.Ultra-nationalist firebrand Vladimir Zhirinovsky took around 6 percent, former reality TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak was on 1.5 percent and other candidates were on less than a single percentage point each.The election was held as Russia faces increasing isolation on the world stage over a spy poisoning in Britain and a fresh round of US sanctions just as it gears up for the football World Cup in the summer.- ‘Unprecedented violations’ -Navalny — who called on his supporters to boycott the “fake” vote and sent more than 33,000 observers across the country to see how official turnout figures differed from those of monitors — said there had been “unprecedented violations”.His lawyer Ivan Zhdanov said the actual national turnout at 1700 GMT, when polls closed in Moscow, was 55 percent, according to data collected by monitors.Navalny’s opposition movement and the non-governmental election monitor Golos reported ballot stuffing, repeat voting and Putin supporters being bussed into polling stations en masse.One election commission worker in the republic of Dagestan, which traditionally registers extremely high official turnout figures, told AFP around 50 men entered the station where he was working and physically assaulted an observer before stuffing a ballot box.But the electoral commission dismissed most concerns, saying monitors sometimes misinterpret what they see.Runner-up Grudinin said the elections had been “dishonest” in comments carried by news agencies following early results.- Putin ‘a hero’ -Among the first world leaders to congratulate Putin was Chinese President Xi Jinping, who has just been handed a second term himself and has gained a path to indefinite rule after presidential term limits were lifted last week.”China is willing to work with Russia to keep promoting China-Russia relations to a higher level, provide driving force for respective national development in both countries, and promote regional and global peace and tranquility,” Xi said in his message.Since first being elected president in 2000, Putin has stamped his total authority on the world’s biggest country, muzzling opposition, putting television under state control and reasserting Moscow’s standing abroad.The 65-year-old former KGB officer used an otherwise lacklustre presidential campaign to emphasise Russia’s role as a major world power, boasting of its “invincible” new nuclear weapons in a pre-election speech.Most people who spoke to AFP on Sunday said they voted for Putin, praising him for restoring stability and national pride after the humiliating collapse of the Soviet Union.”Of course I’m for Putin, he’s a leader,” said Olga Matyunina, a 65-year-old retired economist.”After he brought Crimea back, he became a hero to me.”Sunday marked four years since Putin signed a treaty declaring Crimea to be part of Russia in a move that triggered a pro-Kremlin insurgency in east Ukraine, a conflict that has claimed more than 10,000 lives.- Voting in space -Ahead of the vote, a new crisis broke out with the West as Britain implicated Putin in the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal with a Soviet-designed nerve agent.In response, London expelled 23 Russian diplomats, prompting a tit-for-tat move by Moscow. Also this week, Washington hit Russia with sanctions for trying to influence the 2016 US election.After his victory, Putin dismissed claims Russia was behind the poisoning in Britain as “drivel, rubbish, nonsense” but said Moscow was ready to cooperate with London in the probe.Putin’s previous Kremlin term was marked by a crackdown on the opposition after huge protests, the Ukraine conflict, military intervention in Syria and the introduction of Western sanctions that contributed to a fall in living standards.The president has said he will use his fourth term to address a litany of domestic problems including widespread poverty and poor healthcare.Election officials flew to far-flung regions to collect votes from indigenous herders, while cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov — the only Russian currently aboard the International Space Station — cast his ballot by proxy.last_img read more

It is presumed that in the current month, the state will receive more rainfall than what it had witnessed in the past two consecutive months. Various South Bengal districts, including Kolkata, saw scattered rainfall in the past couple of days.

TAKEONRACISM – Understanding the different types of racism

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite 2. Covert or subtle racism: Covert racism is a form of racial discrimination that is disguised and subtle, rather than public or obvious. Concealed in the fabric of society, covert racism discriminates against individuals through often unnoticeable or seemingly passive methods. Covert, racially biased decisions are often hidden or rationalised with an explanation that society is more willing to accept. These racial biases cause a variety of problems that work to empower the suppressors while diminishing the rights and powers of the oppressed. Covert racism often works subliminally, and often much of the discrimination is being done subconsciously.3. Internalised racism: Internalised racism is loosely defined as the internalisation by people of racist attitudes towards members of their own ethnic group, including themselves. This can include the belief in ethnic stereotypes relating to their own group. In her study The Psychology of Racism, Robin Nicole Johnson writes that this definition does ‘not provide a sense of the complexities or dynamics of racism’, and proposes the definition be ‘an individual’s conscious and unconscious acceptance of a racial hierarchy in which whites are consistently ranked above people of colour’.Click to receive news links via WhatsApp. Or  for the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

BirdLife urges House to reject new hunting law

first_imgBirdLife Cyprus expressed serious concerns and opposition to most of the amendments to the hunting law proposed by the Game and Fauna Service, and urged the House to vote against it on Friday.The NGO stressed that the proposed bill would introduce a series of relaxations and loopholes to existing legislation and make enforcement ineffective.“There are basically three things that we oppose,” Natalie Stylianou, a spokeswoman for BirdLife Cyprus said on Thursday.“The first is the introduction of an on-the-spot fine regulation for all offences, which would ensure that people will not have to go to court for committing a crime, something that they have to do now.”BirdLife Cyprus said in a statement they are concerned that game wardens would not issue on-the-spot fines for high sums that could top €2,000. The two trade union organisations for game wardens, PEO and SEK, submitted a joint letter to Parliament on October 20, 2016 expressing deep concern about the amendment, on the grounds that it will affect the undertaking of their duties and above all their safety.Much of the illegal bird trapping is well organised, and conservationists have often been threatened or had their property damaged in the past when combatting the phenomenon.The second problematic point is the suggestion that people will be allowed to consume in restaurants pre-cooked meat they have hunted themselves. The law wants to provide that hunters can consume what they themselves shoot in a concession to those who say hunting is a tradition in some areas of the island.  “How is this going to be controlled?” Stylianou asked, “who can know where it was hunted and cooked? Even worse, the EU is already against serving illegally hunted birds in restaurants. This law is a move in the opposite direction.”The third issue is a proposal to charge persons who have less than 72 lime sticks – branches covered with sticky sap to trap birds – just €200, while they now have to go to court. This, according to BirdLife Cyprus, will send an indirect message that it is not a serious crime.“We believe that the proposals included in the proposed law amendment are in breach of the Birds Directive (2009/147/EC), and very likely put Cyprus at risk of being referred to the EU Court for non-compliance with the directive and the imposition of penalties,” BirdLife said, adding that what was needed was the strict implementation of the existing legislation and the demonstration of clear political will to seriously combat poaching and illegal bird trapping, which constitute an ecological disaster while at the same time creating a very negative image for Cyprus. We must not forget the thousands of nature lovers who would like to visit our island, but choose different destinations due to the serious problem of illegal bird trapping.” You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
