WASHINGTON — An awkward encounter above Washington’s Pennsylvania Avenue last spring provided early evidence of a rift between the Canadian government and the world’s largest aerospace company.Representatives of the Boeing Co., wound up hastily leaving a meeting at Canada’s embassy after a tense conversation with the ambassador.They had arrived to discuss business with the Canadian government. The giant plane-maker has been hoping to add a multibillion-dollar fighter-jet sale to its more than US$94 billion in annual revenues.But it so happened this visit fell on the same day Boeing filed a trade action against Canada’s largest aerospace player, the far smaller Bombardier. It also happened that the Canadian hosts were given little warning.Word filtered up to the top-floor office of ambassador David MacNaughton about an hour beforehand about the trade action, which this week resulted in whopping 220-per-cent preliminary duties on Bombardier sales.“(MacNaughton) called them out of the meeting,” one source said.Two sources say the ambassador delivered a message similar to what’s now the Canadian government’s public mantra: “I don’t do business with people suing me,” and, “You shouldn’t treat customers this way.”The Boeing people decided it was better to leave. The meeting was over.What the Canadian government has heard from Boeing is that the company is torn between two imperatives: completing the military sale with Canada and avoiding what it perceives to be a colossal mistake of its past.The company has said this publicly.In an interview with The Canadian Press, Marc Allen, president of Boeing’s international division, said: “We watched another competitor come up and enter the market in a very similar fashion.”That competitor was Airbus, in the 1970s.A consortium of French, German, and U.K. interests, Airbus started small in the U.S. market, with European subsidies propping up its twin-engine and single-aisle planes. But the product lines, and the planes, grew, and by the 1990s the company had become a U.S. giant in its own right, muscling aside smaller players like McDonnell Douglas.Now Airbus is aiming for 50 per cent of the American market after opening its first jetliner plant in the U.S.Boeing claims to fear a repeat. After Bombardier’s sale of 75 mid-sized planes to Delta Air Lines, it launched a complaint based on Bombardier’s various forms of assistance from Canadian and Quebec taxpayers.Never mind that Boeing is by far the No. 1 recipient of U.S. government subsidies. It drew US$14.4 billion in various forms of assistance since the 1990s according to the website Subsidy Tracker, far more than any other U.S. company and far more than what Bombardier received. The U.S. Export-Import bank is jokingly referred to in Washington as, “the Bank of Boeing.”And Boeing doesn’t even make planes similar to those Bombardier sold Delta. One Washington critic, Dan Ikenson of the free-market Cato Institute, compares this to a snowplow maker suing a bicycle company.What matters is a smaller rival can grow, Boeing says.It repeated that cautionary tale of Airbus several times during a day-long hearing before the U.S. International Trade Commission.“Airbus in 40 years has an airplane now in every single market segment,” said Raymond Conner, Boeing’s vice-chairman.“What Airbus did is they entered … the smaller (plane market)… and then moved on from there… Today we are fighting for our lives to maintain upper 40’s or 50 per cent (market share). The impact is real and it sometimes takes many years to materialize.“What (Airbus has) done in 40 years, we had to do in 100.”Washington aeronautics consultant Richard Aboulafia says Boeing is making a grave error. It is antagonizing governments and companies in several countries, including the U.K., where Bombardier has more than 3,000 employees, and angering big U.S. buyer Delta.That’s not all.He says it’s harming itself in two other ways: jeopardizing future military contracts in those countries and stoking protectionist sentiment in an industry that relies on international trade.And Boeing might find out its efforts pointless in the end as the Department of Commerce duty could be overturned by the more historically neutral ITC, or by the U.S. domestic trade court, or other international panels.“People said the entire Vietnam War was the triumph of tactics over strategy,” Aboulafia said.“You could win a battle and then find yourself having outraged (everyone)… Can (Boeing make) an effective trade complaint? Yeah, probably. What are the second-order effects? Oh my dear God, that’s a strategic question. (They’d) rather not think strategically.”He heaps scorn on the idea that this is the ghost of Airbus, stirring again.Aboulafia said it’s not the 1970s. The planes are different, the market is different and Canada’s subsidies to Bombardier are nowhere close to as threatening as an international consortium being propped up by different countries.Of the attempt to draw parallels, he says: “That’s what you’d think if you had no sense of strategic history.” read more

“Ethiopia is currently contending with one of the most serious climatic shocks in recorded history with 10 million people facing lost harvests and livestock as well as severe water shortages and health risks,” said Ahunna Eziakonwa-Onuchie, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Ethiopia.Humanitarian needs in Ethiopia have reportedly tripled since the beginning of 2015 as the drought has led to successive crop failures and widespread livestock deaths. The drought is tied to one of the strongest El Niño events on record.The drought response is not just about saving lives but also about protecting development gains which the Government and its development partners have worked tirelessly to build up over decades, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator added.Out of the $1.4 billion appeal, the Ethiopian Government and the international community have contributed more than $758, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.“We need to rally urgently to protect the development gains of Ethiopia over the past decade and ensure the country remains on its remarkable development trajectory,” said Ms. Eziakonwa- Onuchie. “Urgent and substantial investment in the humanitarian crisis response this year is the only way to ensure this and we must act now.” read more

200281.1Y. Ming7’6″N. Tskitishvili7’0″Nene6’11” 2018′s top 10 was calculated using ESPN.com’s latest mock draft.Sources: ESPN, Basketball-Reference.com Last season, 21 of the league’s 50 most valuable players by VORP stood 6-foot-10 or taller, another high for the league since the ABA merger in 1976. So in that sense, towering talents such as Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, Karl-Anthony Towns, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Ben Simmons are doing just fine in the modern NBA, thank you very much.But at the same time, it’s difficult to conclude that this is a true heyday for taller players when you consider how little difference any of them made during the playoffs.1Granted, NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant is listed as 6-foot-9, but he is certainly taller than that. The percentage of total postseason minutes logged by players 6-foot-10 or taller has fallen from 29 percent in 2009 (the year 6-foot-11 Dwight Howard led the Orlando Magic to the NBA Finals) to 22 percent this year. At the same time, the share of playoff VORP belonging to big men has fallen from 34 percent to 26 percent. Only two players 6-foot-10 or taller — Kevin Love and JaVale McGee — played any significant minutes in the NBA Finals.2The series’ other players who stand 6-foot-10 or taller — Zaza Pachulia and Ante Zizic — were on the court for a grand total of 11 minutes over the series’ four games. In recent postseasons, the switch-heavy defensive schemes that top teams play have often made it a tactical liability to rely heavily on traditional big-man types, to say nothing of the negative effects of playing a nonshooter like most bigs have been throughout NBA history.Even among those who have survived these shifting conditions and remained relevant as NBA big men, the core responsibilities of the role have changed substantially over time. The floor-spacing element alone has not only put added pressure on bigs to develop greater range as shooters — 7-footers now take more than double the number of threes they did just five seasons ago, according to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group — but it also requires them to be able to move fluidly in larger areas of defensive space, as well as taking a more active role in ballhandling and passing duties.You can see these changes playing out statistically as today’s big men are diversifying their contributions. Relative to the league average, the typical player who stands 6-foot-10 or taller in the 2010s gets significantly more assists and steals than in previous decades; he also is a much more frequent and efficient scorer and rebounder, but he blocks fewer shots. These changes have been about survival, and several of this draft’s elite post prospects have things they’ll need to prove in order to avoid becoming the next Jahlil Okafor, who entered the NBA with one of the best low-post arsenals in decades but couldn’t move his feet well enough to justify consistent playing time (let alone the No. 3 overall pick).The physically gifted Ayton, who spent much of this past season at power forward, logged very low steal and block rates when compared with other recent top-level post prospects, leading some to question his defensive instincts. Marvin Bagley III, who played zone during his one year at Duke, struggled at times defending the pick and roll, a vital trait in a league where that play can be used every time down the floor. And while Texas’s Mohamed Bamba will enter the NBA with a shot-blocking reputation — he has a ridiculous 7-foot-10 wingspan and erased almost four shots a game in college — it remains to be seen whether he’ll be able to make an impact on defense when teams seek to pull him out with a stretch-big who doesn’t need to be tethered to the paint.If we learned anything during these NBA playoffs — between Houston finding ways to torch and neutralize likely defensive player of the year Rudy Gobert and Golden State making mincemeat out of Cleveland’s switch-everything defense in the NBA Finals — it’s that the best offenses generally have counterpunches against highly predictable defensive sets and players. With that in mind, it wouldn’t be a shock to see someone like Michigan State’s 6-foot-11 Jaren Jackson Jr. get drafted a few spots earlier than expected, given the defensive versatility he possesses.To be clear, it’s not just the big men who find themselves adapting to a changing game. Players at other positions will also come with a handful of question marks Thursday night for similar reasons. For all his game-changing offensive talents, Oklahoma guard Trae Young’s lack of size (he checks in at 6-foot-2 and just under 180 pounds, with only a 6-foot-4 wingspan) figures to give teams pause after an NBA postseason whose earlier rounds saw smaller guards targeted and exposed consistently on the defensive end. Among perimeter players — rookie and veteran alike — Young isn’t alone in that weakness.On a larger scale, though, the sheer number of elite big-men draft prospects leading the way this year may seem a bit odd, given how the league has seemingly downsized. But just keep in mind the necessary caveat: Big men are still alive and well in the NBA — as long as they can move their feet and possess more than one tangible skill. We’ll see how many of this year’s towering prospects can check off those boxes once they start playing against the pros. Headlined by Arizona 7-footer Deandre Ayton, this crop of big men is poised to have a profound effect on the league’s future. But therein lies a paradox: In the sport that prizes height like no other, the game itself is moving away from the archetype of the plodding big man. How each top prospect handles this seeming contradiction will go a long way toward determining what kind of pro career he’ll end up enjoying.The changing role of tall players in today’s pace-and-space NBA is complicated. As our ESPN colleague Kevin Pelton noted last week, bigs are actually more effective on a per-minute basis than ever, at least according to player-value metrics. Even though their share of leaguewide minutes has stayed relatively constant since the late 1980s, the share of NBA value over replacement player (VORP) accumulated by players 6-foot-10 or taller has been on the rise, hitting a modern high-water mark during the 2017-18 season, when bigs accounted for 39.5 percent of total value: 200681.0A. Bargnani7’0″P. O’Bryant7’0″L. Aldridge6’11” 200080.6J. Przybilla7’1″C. Mihm7’0″K. Martin6’9″ When the NBA drafts its newest class of rookies Thursday, big guys should be the order of the night. According to rankings from ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, six of the top seven prospects in this year’s draft stand 6-foot-10 or taller. (The one exception is Real Madrid’s Luca Doncic, a 6-foot-8 point guard.) If things play out according to ESPN’s latest mock draft, this could be the second-tallest collection of top-10 picks in any draft since the lottery era began in 1985: 200781.6S. Hawes7’1″G.

La dernière en daté suggère que l’Ipad 3 serait prévu pour mars 2012, proposant notamment un dock connector plus petit.L’information vient d’un site japonais, Macotakara, qui assure se baser sur une “source asiatique faible”. Selon cette dernière, Apple serait actuellement en pleine préparation de la production de sa troisième génération de tablette, l’Ipad 3 qui devrait débuter fin janvier. Une date qui poserait en fait quelques difficultés à Apple alors que celle-ci tombe pile au moment du Nouvel an chinois et des vacances annuelles en Chine, ce qui obligera donc les usines à redoubler la cadence pour achever la production à temps.   À lire aussiiPhone 6 : un smartphone fragile qui se plierait en restant dans une poche ?Toujours selon cette fameuse source, la nouvelle mouture de la tablette présenterait la même taille que l’Ipad 2. La vraie nouveauté viendrait en fait du dock connector, qui n’est autre que la prise qui permet au câble USB de connecter la tablette à son ordinateur et qui aurait été repensé par Apple pour être plus petit. D’après ce détail, la volonté de la firme pourrait être de réduire l’épaisseur de sa tablette. Point noir cependant, ce changement de dock pourrait rendre le produit incompatible avec les anciennes connexions (Ipod, Iphone, Ipad 1 et 2).

first_img When I headed to Florida a few days ago, my significant other had to come with me.That would be my “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” mug.We keep selling out, but we have our last batch of the year in now.Come by Monday if you want to use a credit card. If history is any gauge, the $10 mugs won’t last long.I bought one myself. I probably need two because I do so much stupid stuff.They’re a fun gift that most people — but not all — appreciate on varying levels. But what exactly are those levels?All sociology and psychology classes are welcome to use this as an exercise. Please let me know what you come up with.I’ve got my own theories, of course.And what about those who don’t like them?After the first batch sold out, I received a call from a 92-year-old woman who wanted me to hold several for her.A couple of days later, she called back and said she would have to cancel.“I told my daughter I had ordered them; but she told me if I gave them out, people would not like me.”Well, if your daughter says so.And it looks as though many politicians agree. I originally thought they would quickly buy in. I was wrong. I suspect there is a certain sense of insecurity that many politicians have about admitting they make mistakes.Noticeably absent are the now infamous M&M boys. You know, Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke.With all due respect, these poor guys have done so much stupid stuff, they could be founding fathers of the cup. But the mugs were not made solely with them in mind. There’s plenty of stupid stuff to go around. The left and right, the short and the tall, the young and the old. Stupid stuff is an equal opportunity trait.OK, so why would anyone want to advertise that they do stupid stuff by buying this mug?Professor Brancaccio would say this: If you’re comfortable in your own skin, if you can admit that you goof up at times, folks gain respect for you. They can see that even though you don’t take yourself too seriously, you can take your job seriously.And it’s likely they’re also willing to admit that it never hurts to be reminded when making decisions to think hard first. That should lessen the chances of you doing stupid stuff. Test Captionlast_img read more

Bransfield, the former head of the Catholic Church’s West Virginia diocese, following an investigation that concluded that there was credible evidence that Bransfield sexually harassed adults and lavishly overspent church funds.The sanctions on Bransfield, which were announced Friday (July 19), bar him from publicly celebrating Catholic Mass and prohibit him from living in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, where he served from 2005 to 2018. The document also calls on Bransfield to “make personal amends for some of the harm he caused.”“The nature and extent of the amends (are) to be decided in consultation with the future Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston,” reads the announcement.Bransfield resigned as bishop last year at age 75, shortly after an aide came forward with a report alleging years of financial scandal and sexual misconduct. The bishop was promptly placed under investigation by Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, who oversees the diocese in his absence.Details of the investigation were outlined last month by The Washington Post. According to the report, not only did priests and seminarians accuse Bransfield of unwanted sexual advances and harassment, the bishop also gave roughly $350,000 in cash gifts to powerful cardinals and bishops in the Vatican and the U.S., including Lori, as well as some of the priests he is accused of mistreating.According to the Post, Bransfield denied the harassment claims to investigators.He and his staff also reportedly spent an average of nearly $1,000 a month on alcohol, and the diocese spent $4.6 million to renovate the cleric’s residence “after a fire damaged a single bathroom.” When Bransfield worked in one administrative building, he spent $100 a day on the delivery of fresh flowers.Lori reportedly received a gift of $7,500 from Bransfield, which he said he is returning and asking that it be donated to Catholic Charities.

first_img © 2012 Phys.org Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Very early human ancestors are believed to have eaten mostly fruits and insects, a trait they shared with most modern apes. At some point however, as the climate changed, our ancestors shifted their diet to include grasses and sedges. Previous evidence had shown that a Paranthropus boisei hominin had existed by eating mostly plants, but carbon dating had shown that individual to have lived approximately 2.8 million years ago. The A. bahrelghazali tooth fossils in this new study are from 3 to 3.5 million years ago, pushing back the date that our ancestors came down out of the trees and began eating C4 grasses, though it’s not clear if they were eating actual grass blades or the roots and tubers that support such plants.A. bahrelghazali stood approximately five feet tall (similar in size to modern chimpanzees) and walked on two legs. It also had a projecting jaw with powerful muscles and large teeth that enabled it to grind plant material to aid digestion. During its time, the part of African where it lived was covered with lakes, floodplains and wooded grasslands, which would lead quite naturally to a change in eating habits if a pattern of living on the ground as opposed to trees developed.Grasses and sedges are generally high fiber foods that also have complex starches and some even have tissue that also offers nutrients, thus, A. bahrelghazali would have been able to survive on such a diet despite not having evolved a sophisticated plant processing digestive system such as that seen with modern cows.The researchers acknowledge that because there is so little fossil evidence to work with, it is possible that the carbon levels found in the tooth fossils came from eating animals that consumed C4 plants, but thus far there is no other evidence to suggest that was the case. Citation: Researchers find human ancestors switched to eating grasses earlier than thought (2012, November 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-11-human-ancestors-grasses-earlier-thought.html Explore further More information: Isotopic evidence for an early shift to C4 resources by Pliocene hominins in Chad, PNAS, Published online before print November 12, 2012, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1204209109AbstractFoods derived from C4 plants were important in the dietary ecology of early Pleistocene hominins in southern and eastern Africa, but the origins and geographic variability of this relationship remain unknown. Carbon isotope data show that Australopithecus bahrelghazali individuals from Koro Toro in Chad are significantly enriched in 13C, indicating a dependence on C4 resources. As these sites are over 3 million years in age, the results extend the pattern of C4 dependence seen in Paranthropus boisei in East Africa by more than 1.5 million years. The Koro Toro hominin fossils were found in argillaceous sandstone levels along with abundant grazing and aquatic faunal elements that, in combination, indicate the presence of open to wooded grasslands and stream channels associated with a greatly enlarged Lake Chad. In such an environment, the most abundant C4 plant resources available to A. bahrelghazali were grasses and sedges, neither of which is usually considered as standard great ape fare. The results suggest an early and fundamental shift in hominin dietary ecology that facilitated the exploitation of new habitats.Press release When African animals hit the hay: Fossil teeth show who ate what and when as grasses emerged This document is subject to copyright.

(Phys.org)—An international team of researchers has found evidence that suggests a human ancestor – Australopithecus bahrelghazali – was eating grass plants almost a million years earlier than most scientists had thought. In their paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team says carbon dating of tooth fossil samples found in Chad indicate early hominins had been dining on a diet heavy in plants that contained 4 carbon atoms (C4), which are typical of grasses or sedges.last_img read more

Thirty-eight Cuban migrants caught trying to sail to the U.S. are stranded aboard a U.S. Coast Guard vessel, waiting for permission from the Cuban government to return home, The Associated Press has learned. The migrants were among about 96 Cubans who were intercepted at sea and taken aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Vigilant. The Cuban government allowed the return of the other 58 people.

Caldwell on Twitter at www.twitter.com/acaldwellapCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. WASHINGTON (AP) — Thirty-eight Cuban migrants caught trying to sail to the U.S. have been stranded aboard a U.S. Coast Guard vessel, waiting for permission from the Cuban government to return home.The would-be immigrants had tourist visas to the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia when they were intercepted at sea by the Coast Guard, U.S. officials told The Associated Press. The Cuban government has refused re-entry to the island because their return does not comport with a repatriation agreement with the U.S., one official said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of the situation by name. The decision to keep the migrants from returning is likely to cause a diplomatic rift as both governments have been negotiating conditions for re-establishing diplomatic relations. Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro announced the effort in December.The United States and Cuba are trying to wrap up an agreement in the coming days that would allow them to re-establish embassies and post ambassadors to each other’s capitals after a half-century interruption. Officials from both governments were planning to meet in Havana Friday to discuss the situation.Roberta Jacobson, the top U.S. diplomat for Latin America, will meet Josefina Vidal, her Cuban counterpart, next week in Washington.The biggest obstacle to restoring full diplomatic relations is almost gone: the U.S. designation of Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism. Obama announced his intention last month to delist Cuba, and the change will become effective May 29, when a 45-day waiting period expires. The designation has ramifications for Cuban access to international financial institutions.Lingering matters include the ability of U.S. diplomats to travel freely in Cuba and speak with dissidents. Ironically, migration has been one of the issues that American and Cuban officials say they’ve had the greatest cooperation on. The migrants were among about 96 Cubans who were intercepted at sea and taken aboard the Coast Guard cutter Vigilant, a 210-foot ship operating out of Port Canaveral, Florida. The ship typically carries 75 officers and crew. The Cuban government allowed the return of the other 58 people.The Cuban government has made no public comment about the case.Under U.S. law, Cuban nationals who make it onto U.S. soil are granted permission to come into the country and can quickly become legal permanent residents and eventually U.S. citizens. Migrants caught at sea generally are sent back to Cuba. The Cuban government has historically allowed U.S. authorities to quickly repatriate those migrants caught at sea.The migrants were found near the Virgin Islands in late April and have been aboard the Vigilant in international waters since, one of the officials said.The so-called wet-foot-dry-foot policy has long angered Cuba’s communist leaders who have argued that the policy encourages Cuban citizens to make the treacherous trip across the Florida Straits, often on homemade rafts or rickety boats in hopes of landing on U.S. soil.In recent years, the Cuban government under President Raul Castro has made it easier for Cubans to travel overseas by eliminating a decades-old and unpopular exit visa requirement.

The purchase price for the portfolio is $1.3 billion. “”We are confident that we will be able to offer customers a smooth transition and look forward to improving the overall portfolio performance for all stakeholders,”” said Jay Bray, CEO of Nationstar. While the agreement between BofA and Nationstar is solid, Nationstar awaits approvals from investors and other third parties. The company expects most of the MSR purchases to obtain approvals in the first quarter of this year. [COLUMN_BREAK]In terms of unpaid principal balance, the MSR portfolio from BofA is 47 percent government-backed–with guarantees from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or Ginnie Mae. The remaining 53 percent of the portfolio consists of private-label securitizations. With the purchase, Nationstar’s customer base grows from 1.2 million to more than 1.5 million, and its servicing portfolio reaches $425 billion. An additional $13 billion is also being added to Nationstar’s portfolio as a result of another servicing acquisition from BofA in the final quarter of last year. Newcastle will invest $340 million in the deal announced Monday. Additionally, Newcastle has pursued its own excess MSR deal with Ginnie Mae, in which the company invested $27 million in a Ginnie Mae portfolio with $13 billion in unpaid principal balance. Newcastle plans to distribute shares of its subsidiary New Residential Investment Corp., thus spinning off all its excess MSRs in the first quarter of this year. “”I am very pleased to announce these significant investments in Excess MSRs and the spin-off of New Residential,”” “”said””:http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20130107006028/en/Newcastle-Agrees-Acquire-Excess-MSRs-Announces-Spin-Off Kenneth Riis, CEO of Newcastle. “”We believe these investments offer a compelling opportunity to drive attractive returns for shareholders.”” Monday’s announcements from Nationstar and Newcastle follow “”announcements””:https://themreport.com/articles/bofa-fannie-mae-resolve-repurchase-claims-2013-01-07 from Fannie Mae and BofA regarding their repurchase claim agreement.
