US stocks dip a day after biggest rally since March

first_imgNEW YORK — U.S. stocks are lower Thursday morning after huge gains the day before. Technology and internet companies are taking some of the largest losses. The S&P 500 index is coming off its largest rally in eight months and has climbed nearly 4 per cent this week. Deutsche Bank skidded after German authorities searched its offices on suspicion some of the bank’s employees helped clients launder money.KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 index lost 8 points, or 0.3 per cent, to 2,735 at 10:15 a.m. Eastern time. It soared 2.4 per cent Wednesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 55 points, or 0.2 per cent, to 25,310. The Nasdaq composite shed 26 points, or 0.4 per cent, to 7,264. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks fell 7 points, or 0.5 per cent, to 1,523.Stocks surged after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell suggested in a speech that the Fed might be almost done raising interest rates, and is willing to stop raising rates at least temporarily so it can assess the effects of the last few years of increases. Investors were happy to hear that, as they’ve been nervous that climbing interest rates will contribute to a damaging slowdown in economic growth. That fear is one of the major reasons behind the stock market’s recent slide.SEARCHED BANK: German authorities suspect that Deutsche Bank employees helped clients set up offshore companies in tax havens to launder hundreds of millions of euros. A prosecutor in Frankfurt said the investigation focuses on two employees and possibly other suspects. Deutsche Bank stock lost 3.6 per cent to $9.53. It’s down 50 per cent so far this year.CALL YOUR DOCTOR: Medical lab operator Quest Diagnostics sank 8.5 per cent to $88.69 after it cut its annual profit and revenue forecasts.

Tunisia judges stage protest demand independence

first_imgTUNIS- Hundreds of Tunisian lawyers and judges demonstrated Wednesday outside the National Constituent Assembly to condemn the draft constitution, which they say does not guarantee the independence of the judiciary. “No to the taming of the judiciary” and “the people want independence for the judges” were among slogan shouted by protesters, who have received support from the national journalists union.The judiciary was heavily controlled under Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, notably as a tool for suppressing the opposition, and particularly Islamist party Ennahda, which won Tunisia’s first free elections after the dictator was ousted in a popular uprising three years ago. The protest was the latest in a number of demonstrations and strikes by judges in recent months, who fear their independence is threatened by the country’s new charter, which lawmakers are currently examining.Over the past week there have been rowdy debates on articles relating to the powers of the judiciary, which resulted in the rejection of a number of controversial provisions, including one that defined the government’s role in nominating judges.MPs also rejected another article defining the jurisdiction of military tribunals, for being too vague.A groups of international NGOs and human rights organisations praised the new charter for evoking the general principles of judicial independence, but urged MPs to strengthen its guarantees.“The draft chapter on judicial power contains several important articles that incorporate general principles on the independence of the judiciary,” said the group, which includes Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.But a number of provisions remain too vague, the group added, warning that they “could be misused by the executive and legislative powers.”Attempts to begin significant reforms of the judiciary since the January 2011 revolution have largely failed so far.The assembly is pushing ahead with the adoption of a long-delayed new constitution, voting article by article, but failed to complete the task by an agreed deadline of January 14, the third anniversary of Ben Ali’s downfall.The charter contains around 150 articles, a third of which have yet to be ratified, as required before a vote to approve the whole text can take place.last_img read more

Fighting inequality is among greatest challenges of our times Philippines tells UN

24 September 2010Combating inequality remains one of the greatest challenges of our times and the richer countries must help their less developed, President Benigno S. Aquino III of the Philippines told the General Assembly today. Combating inequality remains one of the greatest challenges of our times and the richer countries must help their less developed, President Benigno S. Aquino III of the Philippines told the General Assembly today.“The wealth of nations must become an instrument to move the world further along the straight and righteous path of compassion and communal responsibility,” he said.“The message is clear: there are those who need help, and acting with compassion toward those who need help is a response that is both humane and necessary…“The chasm between the powerful and powerless, the haves and the have-nots, remains to be bridged. The past century has demonstrated, in terms so stark that it inspired the creation of this organization, that when the mighty clash, those who have less end up trampled. This is true where conflict exists, and true where markets exist, true in our nation, and true in an international context.”He noted that those who stand to lose much, if not everything, from the effects of human-induced climatic conditions are those who did little to cause it.“There is an enormous need to ensure, as a matter of justice, that countries, particularly the vulnerable, are assisted in their adaptation and disaster risk reduction efforts and are provided the necessary resources to build climate-resilient communities,” Mr. Aquino said.“This should go hand-in-hand with ambitious commitments by major economies to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.”In a meeting with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Mr. Aquino discussed regional issues, including the need to ensure a credible electoral process in Myanmar and the importance of engagement by other countries in the region. read more

Le mystère de la matière noire sobscurcit

first_imgLe mystère de la matière noire s’obscurcitJusqu’ici les scientifiques considéraient le voisinage du Soleil comme rempli de matière noire. Mais une nouvelle étude indique que les observations faites ne concordent pas avec cette théorie. Du coup, détecter des particules de matière noire depuis la Terre pourrait bien se solder par un échec, selon les spécialistes.Selon la théorie largement acceptée, le voisinage du Soleil était supposé être rempli de matière noire. Cette mystérieuse substance invisible qui ne peut être détectée que de manière indirecte, était repérable grâce à la force gravitationnelle qu’elle exerce. Cependant, une nouvelle étude menée par une équipe d’astronomes au Chili a trouvé que cette théorie ne tenait pas la route. Les astronomes ont utilisé le télescope MPG/ESO de 2,2 mètres à l’Observatoire de La Silla de l’ESO, ainsi que d’autres télescopes. Ils ont ainsi cartographié les mouvements de plus de 400 étoiles situées jusqu’à 13.000 années-lumière du Soleil. A partir de ces nouvelles données, ces scientifiques ont calculé la masse de matière aux alentours du Soleil, dans un volume quatre fois plus grand que ce qui avait été pris en compte dans les études antérieures. “La quantité de masse que nous avons déduite correspond très bien à ce que nous voyons [les étoiles, la poussière et le gaz] dans la région autour du Soleil”,  explique le responsable de l’équipe, Christian Moni Bidin. “Mais cela ne laisse aucune place pour la matière supplémentaire [la matière noire] que nous pensions trouver. Nos calculs montrent qu’elle aurait dû clairement ressortir dans nos mesures. Mais elle n’est pas là !”Si aujourd’hui, il est communément admis que cette matière noire constitue environ 80% de la masse de l’Univers, nous n’avons toujours pas réussi à comprendre sa nature. De plus, les modèles astronomiques existants montrent comment les galaxies se forment et tournent en supposant que la Voie Lactée est entourée par un halo de matière noire. Or, ces modèles ne sont pas capables de prédire précisément la forme de ce halo, qu’ils supposaient se situer dans le voisinage du Soleil. La détection de matière noire vouée à l’échec ? À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreAinsi, pour pouvoir expliquer l’absence de matière noire révélée dans cette nouvelle étude, il faudrait supposer que le halo de matière noire a une forme vraiment peu probable, par exemple une forme extrêmement allongée, rapporte le site de l’Observatoire européen austral. Les nouveaux résultats signifient également que les tentatives pour détecter de la matière noire depuis la Terre en essayant de repérer de rares interactions entre les particules de matière noire et la matière normale risquent très probablement de n’apporter aucun résultat.”Malgré les nouveaux résultats, la Voie Lactée doit certainement tourner beaucoup plus vite que ce que l’on peut expliquer avec la seule matière visible. Aussi, si la matière noire n’est pas présente là où on l’attend, une nouvelle explication au problème de la masse manquante doit être trouvée. Nos résultats contredisent les modèles en vigueur. Le mystère de la matière noire en devient juste encore plus mystérieux. De prochains sondages, tels que ceux de la mission Gaia de l’ESA, seront cruciaux pour avancer au-delà de ce point”, conclut ainsi Christian Moni Bidin.Le 20 avril 2012 à 13:52 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Chris Katra, Cpl. Sean McGillicuddy and Deputy Kevin Nulton responded to that address around 2:50 p.m. following reports that a man was screaming, talking about killing himself and others, and throwing items, according to a letter prepared by District Attorney Summer Stephan and addressed to San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore.Body camera footage from two of the lawmen was also released by the D.A.’s office.As the deputies approached the front door of Ayala’s unit and knocked, announcing “Sheriff’s Department” three times, Ayala opened the door, said “What’s up!” and jabbed a knife twice through his metal screen door, the body-worn camera footage shows.The deputies backed up from the door as Nulton alerted the others by saying “Knife, knife, knife.”Ayala then opened the screen door and advanced towards the lawmen, who opened fire, striking him mostly in the upper body, according to Stephan’s letter.Ayala died at the scene. His 5-year-old son was inside the apartment during the entire encounter, but was physically unharmed, according to the district attorney.Toxicology results showed Ayala had methamphetamine, heroin, cannabis and alcohol in his system.Stephan’s letter concludes that the deputies “were in a confined space when Ayala advanced on them quickly with a knife in his hand.” The letter also notes Ayala’s previously reported statements about killing people.“The deputies had no other option available to them as they Ayala could stab them immediately and seriously injure or kill them,” the letter reads.Katra has been employed by the San Diego Sheriff’s Department for 18 years, McGillicuddy for 12 years and Nulton for 10 years.

Remains of Boy Found in Kotlik

first_imgRemains of a child found Sunday in Kotlik are believed to be that of a boy who went missing there last year, according to Alaska State Troopers.Troopers spokesperson, Megan Peters says just before midnight Sunday, Troopers from Emmonak were notified that human remains were found in a large hole in Kotlik that is always filled with water.“Right now it appears that the remains that were found are that of a small boy named Terrell Hunt who went missing last May.

That is a tentative ID at this point but with everything that we know about this case, it appears that it is Terrell Hunt,” said Peters.On May 20th of last year the boy was reported missing in the village. An organized search was conducted for two weeks with no results. Local residents continued to search until the river became frozen this winter.Troopers responded to the scene Monday, where their investigation revealed that the remains were consistent with that of the missing child, including clothing the child was wearing. The water is being drained from the large hole using pumps, to recover additional clothing.The remains were sent to Anchorage to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy and positive identification.

Suprised by RJD poll debacle in Bihar Lalu Prasad skips lunch

first_imgFormer Bihar chief minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad is serving a 14-year sentence in Jharkhand.IANSAfter a humiliating defeat in the Lok Sabha election results, in which the grand alliance of the RJD, the Congress and four other parties in Bihar failed to stop the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance’s march in Bihar, former Bihar Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad has stopped taking lunch and is keeping quiet most of the time.For the first time, the RJD will not have a single member in the Lok Sabha. The party failed to win any Lok Sabha seat in Bihar, which was once its bastion, and Jharkhand. Back in 2014, despite the Modi wave, the RJD had won four seats from Bihar.”Lalu Prasad’s routine has changed in the last two to three days. He is having breakfast and dinner but not taking lunch,” said Umesh Prasad, the doctor-in-charge of the former leader’s health at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) here.According to doctors, Lalu Prasad, currently serving a 14-year sentence in Jharkhand in a multi-million-rupee fodder scam, is given insulin doses three times a day.But since he was not taking his meals on time, the doctors were not being able to administer the doses as they did earlier.Lalu Prasad has also been keeping quiet most of the time, according to doctors, reports news agency IANS.The BJP-led NDA swept Bihar, bagging 39 of the 40 seats, decimating the Mahagathbandhan parties: RJD, HAM, VIP, RLSP. The Congress won one seat.(Inputs from agencies)last_img read more

Presidency Univ signs MoU with CNCI on modern DNA sequencing technology

first_imgKolkata: Presidency University has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute (CNCI) for collaborating on a modern sequencing technology that will help researchers sequence DNA faster for investigating cervical cancer. Sequencing has been in practice for a long time, but Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a new concept, Presidency University professor and programme coordinator Abhik Saha said. Presidency University Vice-Chancellor Anuradha Lohia said on Monday that the MoU inked recently with the CNCI, one of the oldest cancer research institutions in the country, would give an opportunity to students for undergoing training. It will also open a new chapter in medical research, she said. “With this research, we will be able to see if any other microbe can cause cervical cancer, apart from the virus. “We also aim to develop a diagnostic kit, with which we can test samples from patients,” the programme coordinator said. Depending on the outcome, such research would be used to investigate other forms of cancer, other than cervical cancer, Saha said. Another university official said it will help students have access to different laboratories involved in such research and help both the institutions. CNCI authorities did not comment on the issue.last_img read more

Nicaraguas Ortega says US senator congresswoman on official list of banned foreigners

first_imgMANAGUA, Nicaragua – Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega confirmed Friday that U.S. Rep.Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Senator Marco Rubio – both from Florida – are on an official list of foreigners banned from entering the country in retaliation for travel restrictions placed on Nicaraguan officials by the U.S. government.“Just like they [U.S. officials] have their lists, we can make our own lists in Latin America of those who shouldn’t enter our country,” Ortega said during a meeting with Venezuelan officials in Nicaragua.Ortega did not say when the ban went into effect. He said it responded to “a list of Nicaraguan officials who cannot enter the United States.”“La señora Lleana Ros is on there [the list], and she wanted to enter here [last June]. Her story was that she was going to come to foment democracy in our country, but she was on the list of people who can’t enter and she didn’t enter,” Ortega said.The Republican congresswoman is an outspoken critic of the leftist governments in Nicaragua, Venezuela and Cuba, and she had planned last June to meet in Managua with leaders of the political opposition. However, she had cited health problems as the reason for the trip’s cancellation.Ortega said Florida Senator Marco Rubio, also a Republican, is banned from Nicaragua for his strong criticisms of the administration of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela.Ortega did not say who else is on the list of banned foreigners, or how many.Ortega’s comments followed the recent announcement by the U.S. of more sanctions on Venezuelan officials accused of committing human rights violations against members of the opposition during recent violent protests in that country.“We logically condemn the attitudes of the North American Senate,” Ortega said.Venezuela has provided Nicaragua with more than $3 billion in aid since the Sandinistas returned to power in 2007.Related: US Congress approves fresh sanctions on Venezuela Facebook Comments Related posts:Nicaragua’s Ortega defends military ties with Russia Russia’s Putin in Cuba, Nicaragua to rekindle Latin America ties Panel warns of Central America’s increasing dependence on Petrocaribe Central American leaders concerned over rekindling of Nicaragua-Russia military tieslast_img read more

NZ hotels increase yield productivity in 2015

first_imgNZ hotels increase yield & productivity in 2015New Zealand hotels enjoyed a record-breaking year in 2015, increasing yield and productivity, according to new Tourism Industry Association statistics.TIA’s Hotel Sector members recorded a national average occupancy rate of 79%, up 3 points on 2014 and the highest level in at least five years.TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts says returns are also improving, which is needed to encourage investment and refurbishment.The average room rate (across all star grades) was $157 (up $12 on 2014). Combined with the improved occupancy rate, this pushed the average Revenue Per Available Room (RevPar) up by $14 (13%) to $124.“For hoteliers, RevPar is a key statistic as it provides owners and investors with yield information they need to proceed with refurbishments and developments.“Hotel revenues in New Zealand are still below what is being achieved in Australia and high land and construction costs in New Zealand remain a barrier. But the upward trend is encouraging,” Mr Roberts says.TIA has identified infrastructure investment as a priority and is working with the government to identify opportunities and remove roadblocks.“To meet the goals of Tourism 2025, it is essential that we encourage investment to improve the quality of current infrastructure to meet rising visitor expectations, as well as creating a positive environment for investment in new facilities.”The tourism industry set itself a big goal with the Tourism 2025 growth framework – an industry worth $41 billion by 2025 – but as we head into 2016, it looks very achievable, Mr Roberts says.

UN still quiet on special envoy

first_imgUN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ spokesman Stephane Dujarric has said that he has nothing to announce when asked to confirm that Jane Holl Lute was named as his interim envoy for Cyprus.“I have no announcement to share with you at this point. When we are ready to announce it we will”, Dujarric added.Diplomatic sources told the Cyprus News Agency that so far, only President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci have given their consent to the request submitted by the UN for Jane Holl Lute to be appointed for exploratory meetings with the two leaders and the three guarantor powers.According to diplomatic sources, the American former UN official will be appointed temporarily as the UNSG’s personal envoy and there would be no deadline for her mission.The UNSG was still said to be considering whether Lute would launch her mission immediately or whether she would wait until the elections in Turkey, scheduled to take place on June 24.The last round of talks between the two sides broke down last summer amid recriminations.The two leaders met for dinner recently but there has not been any progress since despite Akinci proposing last week that they accept a six-point framework submitted by Guterres. You May LikeCoralDrowningDetectionKTLA 5 Unveiled AI pool safety device – Coral Drowning Detection SystemsCoralDrowningDetectionUndowww.amazon.comHow 21ST Century Entrepreneurs Think, Act And Grow Richwww.amazon.comUndoGo World Travel Magazine6 Cheapest Places for Digital Nomads To Live and Work OverseasGo World Travel MagazineUndo Modi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoHouse rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoProtest outside the House over foreclosures lawUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
