King St in Toronto reopens and being closed by hydro vault fire

first_imgTORONTO – A key route through Toronto’s financial district reopened to traffic late Tuesday night, about 18 hours after it was closed to traffic because of a hydro vault fire on Monday afternoon.Firefighters extinguished the remains of a smouldering fire in the vault on Tuesday morning, but King St. west of Yonge St. had remained closed until about 11:30 p.m.Capt. Adrian Ratushniak of Toronto Fire Services earlier said fire crews would remain on scene as a precaution while hydro crews began the work of replacing a transformer damaged in the blaze.Toronto Hydro had said crews would have to pump water out of the vault and dry the equipment before beginning repairs.There were no injuries in the incident, which included several explosion and thick smoke billowing from grates.Ratushniak says crews initially had to fight the fire with carbon dioxide gas because dumping water on the energized hydro vault would have been dangerous. They were eventually able to extinguish the blaze with water.last_img read more

Industrial livestock production near cities can damage environment – UN agency

Industrial livestock production in developing countries often causes severe environmental damages, especially when meat and dairy factories are crowded together around cities or close to water resources, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) has warned. In a report released on Thursday, the Rome-based agency urged governments to create incentives for more environmentally friendly dairy and meat production practices. Meat and dairy products have become more widely available and affordable in many developing countries. Between 1980 and 2004, meat production in developing countries tripled from around 50 million to 150 million tonnes. Although consumers in developed countries still eat three to four times as much meat per person, developing countries now produce and consume well over half of the world’s meat, FAO said. Meat production in developing countries is expected to increase by about 110 million tonnes by 2030. In many developing countries large industrial livestock operations with thousands of animals have displaced production on small farms that raise both animals and crops and recycle nutrients as fodder and fertilizer. New production has shifted increasingly from cattle that graze on grass in rural areas to industrial pig and poultry production on the outskirts of major cities, according to the reportIn industrial production systems, large quantities of animal wastes accumulate far from croplands where they could be safely recycled. Dense concentrations of industrial livestock production create vast quantities of manure. This can cause nitrates and pathogens to leach into groundwater, which often threatens drinking water supplies. Another risk is the destruction of fragile ecosystems, such as wetlands, mangrove swamps and coral reefs. Government policies such as zoning regulations and taxes can discourage large concentrations of intensive production close to cities, the report said. Taxes, certification programmes and other policy instruments can support best practices in livestock production. Unfortunately, in many countries outdated and misguided policies actively promote environmentally unsustainable livestock production, FAO said. Many developing countries provide subsidies for chemical fertilizers, energy and credit, but these tend to be of greater benefit to large operations. The agency points out that eliminating subsidies, adjusting taxes and providing incentives for investing in technology to reduce pollution could reduce the environmental damage caused by industrial livestock production. read more

Facebook active la reconnaissance faciale

first_imgFacebook active la reconnaissance facialeLe réseau social généralise un système mis en place aux Etats-Unis depuis 2010 consistant pour l’internaute à mettre automatiquement un nom sur un visage dans ses photos publiées, si la personne est déjà identifiée sur d’autres clichés et fait partie de ses “amis”.Depuis quelques jours, un nouveau paramètre de confidentialité est apparu sur Facebook, “Suggérer à mes amis les photos où j’apparais”. Cette option, uniquement disponible jusque-là aux Etats-Unis, est activée par défaut, explique Sophos. Elle consiste en une reconnaissance des visages. Ainsi, lorsqu’un membre charge une photo sur Facebook, le service compare ces clichés avec ceux stockés sur ses serveurs et qui ont déjà été associés à un nom. S’il reconnaît une personne figurant dans les “amis” de l’utilisateur, Facebook suggère alors d’associer son nom aux nouveaux clichés.Un procédé auparavant manuel et donc désormais automatisé. Si le réseau social explique que “seuls les amis peuvent vous identifier dans des photos” et que “les suggestions sont basées sur les photos dans lesquelles vous avez autorisé à être identifié(e)”, le fait qu’il ait choisi de l’imposer par défaut sans informer ses utilisateurs fait débat.

Pharma strategy GlaxoSmithKline sets up first team for acquisitions in 93 years

first_imgA British Airways airplane flies past a signage of pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in London in this file photo. GlaxoSmithKline is said to have formed a separate team to chalk out aggressive acquisition plans to further its growth in the competitive Indian market. REUTERS/Luke MacGregorGlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Pharmaceuticals is scouting for acquisitions in the domestic market for the first time since it started its operations in the country 93 years ago, according to a Business Standard (BS) report on Monday.The change in strategy for a company which has preferred to rely on its traditional strengths in the branded generics space. The decision to grow inorganically comes at a time when the government is increasing price over branded generic medicines which has affected the company’s profitability.”So far, our inorganic growth in India has primarily been driven by global acquisition strategy,” Managing Director Annaswamy Vaidheesh told the financial daily.The firm has established products like Zinetac, used for acid peptic ulcer therapy, which have been included in the National List of Essential Medicines (NELM), and reduction of prices on these drugs has affected the firm’s margins.Since the NELM inclusion, Zinetac’s value has fallen 5 per cent, despite its volumes increasing 36 per cent, Business Standard said. Zinetac has market share of 47 per cent in the category, according to December 2016 data from IMS.The UK-headquartered company recorded compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of a meagre 4.4 per cent to Rs 3,000 crore for 2016-17. Profit declined to Rs 337 crore in 2016-17 from Rs 429 crore in 2011. For the first quarter of fiscal 2018 ended June 30, 2017, net sales touched Rs 587 crore, with profits at Rs 26 crore. The company changed its financial year to March-ending in 2014-15 from December-ending earlier, the report said.Regulatory headwinds, eroded marginsDespite pricing headwinds propelled by the government’s social obligations finding their way into pharmaceutical policy, the firm has cemented its commitment to India by investing Rs 1,000 crore in a new manufacturing facility in Vemgal, Karnataka. Another Rs 500 crore is being spent for upgrading a facility in Nashik, near Pune. It is now bringing more products in areas of respiratory drugs and vaccines from its global pipeline to India, the BS report said.In 2015, the parent company, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, had swapped its marketed oncology portfolio with the vaccine business of Novartis AG, Switzerland. This involved the swapping of their businesses in India, too, the BS report said.The parent company got its current identity with the merger of Glaxo Wellcome with SmithKline Beecham in 2000.Vaidheesh said that it was only in the recent past that the company built a India team to evaluate inorganic growth opportunities in the domestic market. “Since we have got our manufacturing footprint more or less sorted, it is time for us to look at what else we can do to drive growth,” Vaidheesh told the financial daily. A woman walks past a GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Ltd logo outside the company headquarters in Mumbai in this December 16, 2013 file photo. REUTERS/Danish SiddiquiRegulatory pressures on Indian pharmaceutical companies have been worsening by the day, accompanied by pricing pressure in the generics segment denting realisations.USFDA alerts on Indian pharma companies have increased over the past few years. Regulators used to visit the plants every two years. Now they come every eight months. Increasing inspections have led to a total of 41 import alerts in the past eight years, with 33 of them occurring in the 2013-16 period. This clearly signifies increased USFDA scrutiny on Indian pharma firms.last_img read more

EU Deals EU Amazon price comparison

first_imgEU Deals: EU Amazon price comparison by Martin Brinkmann on December 17, 2016 in Internet – Last Update: December 18, 2016 – 8 commentsAmazon runs several localized stores around the world which may have different items on offer and may also price the same item differently.Companies benefit from a global economy, more so than consumers. But you and I can benefit from a global economy as well, at least when it comes to making purchases in different regions of the world that benefit us financially.I mentioned this first in 2009 in a story entitled How Consumers Benefit From A Global Economy. It comes down to comparing pricing — including shipping, handling, and maybe import tax — to buy certain items on the cheap.This works really well in Europe as you can buy in any member nation of the EU. It so happens that Amazon runs main stores in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and several other European countries. Pricing in these stores may differ, sometimes by a large margin.EU DealsEU Deals is a price comparison extension for Google Chrome and Firefox that is powered by the service of the same name.The extension works automatically once installed in Chrome; there are no options or customizations that you can do.EU Deals looks up the item in other Amazon stores, and displays its findings on the Amazon store page you are on right away.The result is either that the item is available for a lower price at another Amazon Store in the EU, or that the price is at its lowest already.The extension takes shipping and different currencies into account according to the developers of the extension.This add-on compares the prices, calculates shipping fees and converts currencies to get you the lowest Amazon price in Europe.It is still necessary to check out the offer. First to make sure that the service matched the right item, then that the item is available and indeed for the listed price.A quick test revealed that this is not always the case. The item on the screenshot for instance, the Surface Book by Microsoft, was listed as being nearly €1300 cheaper in the UK than in Germany. I followed the link and the one item that beat the price by more than 50% was a marketplace offer. The seller had only seven ratings of which 57% were positive. Other items checked out fine however.Closing WordsEU Deals checks the price of items on Amazon’s five stores in the European Union currently. This makes sense logistically,but it would still be handy if the service would add other regional stores to the mix.The price of an item may be that cheap in the US for instance that it would make sense to order it there even though you’d pay more for shipping and probably also import tax.As far as features are concerned, I’d like to see an option to block marketplace offers from the price comparison.You can download the Chrome extension and the Firefox add-on at the official stores.Now Read: Before you buy on Amazon, check out the coupons sectionSummary12345 Author Rating3 based on 8 votes Software Name EU DealsSoftware Category Browser Advertisementlast_img read more

Survey Lenders Hopeful for Credit Expansion

first_img July 27, 2011 423 Views Survey: Lenders Hopeful for Credit Expansion Lending availability may be in the swings of an expansion, as loan structures and demand loosen, leading to more financing opportunities in the broader economy, according to a “”second-quarter survey””:http://www.phoenixmanagement.com/newsroom/phoenix-survey-shows-relaxed-lending-standards released Wednesday by research firm “”Phoenix Management Services””:http://www.phoenixmanagement.com/. The survey posted hopeful signs for an erstwhile tight credit supply, even as it anticipates continued strains of volatility in home construction, real estate, and other markets.[IMAGE]The survey, titled “”Lending Climate in America,”” relied on anecdotal as well as quantitative research across a broad swath of lenders. Sections of the survey showed a rise in domestic lending by 6 percent, with 56 percent of lenders anticipating a surge in demand for financing. Most survey respondents reported feeling uncertain about the direction of the economy, giving trends over the next six months a “”C”” on an A-through-F scale.””Lending standards are being relaxed,”” says Michael Jacoby, senior managing director and shareholder at Phoenix. “”Lenders in general have become and expect to continue to become more aggressive├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬ª thinking there is capital available at financial institutions who are in the business of lending money. They are out there seeking to find opportunities to put money to work.””According to the data, 21 percent of survey respondents plan to loosen their loan structures over the next six months, posting a four-percentage increase from the past quarter. By the same token, lenders projecting tightened standards fell to 10 percent this quarter from 12 percent in the last, with 39 percent of survey respondents projecting reductions in interest rate spreads. Overall, the survey reports, 69 percent of lenders expect to hold steady with their current loan structures into the fourth quarter this year.””The survey results are consistent with what we’re observing in the market,”” Jacoby says. He adds that lenders continue to undertake “”pretty robust interest”” for financing opportunities, with loan officers at surveyed lenders and credit agencies offering up hope for a rise in aggressive lending behavior.[COLUMN_BREAK]””There’s a general sentiment out there in the marketplace that the lending community in general has reverted close to and some cases beyond where we were pre-recession,”” he says. “”The pendulum has swung back and, depending upon the situation and part of the country and minor variances, the pendulum is either pretty close to where we were or perhaps beyond.””The survey yielded continuing signs of distress in pockets of the housing sector. Asked to identify which three industries lenders felt would shake from the most volatility over the next two quarters, 66 percent elected the construction industry as the most likely candidate, followed by real estate and the rental leasing industry. Answering a separate question about which factors would impact the economy the most, 41 percent pointed at the sluggish housing market, second only to energy prices.Walter Molony, a spokesperson for the “”National Association of Realtors””:http://www.realtor.org/ (NAR), says the distress is consistent with existing-home sales figures from last week.Reported by “”_MReport_””:https://themreport.com/articles/nar-june-existing-home-sales-fall-back-2011-07-20, those figures reflected upward-bound sales across the South and Midwest, a black-on-white match with declines in the Northwest and Northeast. Drop-offs in the condo sector paired with slow-to-moderate stabilizations in single-family homes portrayed a still-brittle housing sector, with overall declines to the tune of 0.8 percent in June. Single-family town homes, condominiums, and coops plunged at a seasonally adjusted rate from 4.81 million in May to 4.77 million in June.Molony attributed the lackluster signs of recovery to last-minute contract cancellations, subpar appraisals, and the rejection of otherwise creditworthy borrowers by wary lenders.He disagrees with the optimism of the Phoenix survey. “”We’re seeing [lending] move in the wrong direction,”” he says, projecting that home sales would rise 15 to 20 percent if lenders went back to lending standards before the housing boom and subsequent recession. “”The market is under-performing given market intent.””The “”_Wall Street Journal_””:http://www.xydo.com/toolbar/22922629-tighter_lending_crimps_housing_-_wall_street_journal reports that the nation├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós top 10 mortgage lenders turned down 26.8 percent of loan applications in 2010, up from 23.5 percent the previous year, resulting in fewer home purchases nationally.In a past interview with _MReport_, Molony said that “”lenders have only been willing to lend to the cream of the crop,”” creating a “”catch-22″” whereby wary banks keep their ledgers in the black but fail to drum up financing for homebuyers that would stabilize home prices and the broader economy.He says the anecdotal data from the survey “”is a hopeful sign, we just need to see it manifest into action.”” in Data, Origination, Servicingcenter_img Agents & Brokers Home Sales Lenders & Servicers National Association of Realtors Processing Service Providers 2011-07-27 Ryan Schuette Sharelast_img read more

Nasser fastest in qualifying round of Cyprus Rally

At lunchtime the fastest 15 crews gathered at Larnaca seafront to pick their starting position for the rally proper, which kicks off early Saturday morning.As expected, Al-Attiyah – who got first pick of the starting order – chose to run 15th on the road (which will give him a cleaner surface after the passage of the 14 cars running ahead of him sweep the gravel tracks of rocks). All the other top qualifiers followed his lead, so the running order for Leg 1 is the reverse of the qualifying times, and 15th fastest Juan Carlos Alonso will be first on the road, followed by Petros Panteli and Alexandros Tsouloftas.Said Al Attiyah “it was a really nice stage – you know we like the rally.”His Russian rival admitted that he will have his work cut out to beat the Qatari.“It is a long way to be in front of many other drivers. Nasser knows better how to handle the surface,” he said.Leg 1 starts at 08:30 today and crews will return for the overnight regroup just before 4pm.
