The March 13 headline on page A2 of The Gazette’s edition from the Washington Post article by Marwa Eltagouri reads – “Married Iowa lawmaker quits after video shows him kissing woman.” First of all, I knew that it would be a Republican lawmaker because if it were a Democrat, the story would never be written. The other thing of note, if you read the story, it was the woman (a lobbyist) who “leans over and begins kissing Dix” (the lawmaker). Was this a set-up? I’ll let the reader decide.LOU MOSHERAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Three seniors who started as seventh-graders providing veteran experience for Amsterdam golfEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?

The latest disaster at the Brazilian mine Córrego de Feijão is likely to reduce Capesize demand by some 35-40 vessels in 2019, according to UK-based shipping consultancy Drewry.To remind, the breach of the upstream Dam I of the Brumadinho-based mine occurred in the early afternoon of January 25, 2019, releasing a tsunami of toxic mud that swept across the area damaging buildings and trapping hundreds of people.Based on the latest information from Vale, operator of the mine, 99 fatalities have been confirmed as a result of the dam collapse, 67 of which have been identified, while 259 remain missing. A total of 393 people have been found, and 192 rescued.Drewry anticipates that the collapse of the dam will hurt Vale’s iron ore production from Minas Gerais in Brazil if the Brazilian government does not allow Vale to compensate the loss by increasing production at its other mines.“While Vale wants to increase production at its other mines to compensate for the loss of the 40 million tonnes, a furious Brazilian government is unlikely to permit the company to increase operations in the near term. Allowing Vale to do so will only add to public resentment against both the company as well as the Brazilian government,” Rahul Sharan, Drewry’s lead analyst for dry bulk shipping, explained.This is in particular due to the fact that this is the second incident in less than four years.In November 2015, at Mariana, there was another disaster when a dam using the same old technology collapsed. After much criticism, Vale decided to decommission nine of its upstream dams and the process is still underway. But following the current disaster, Vale has decided to decommission all of the remaining 10 upstream dams as well. As of today, 40 million tonnes of iron ore production associated with the dams will be decommissioned, Drewry’s data shows.As a result, Sharan expects that the loss of 40 million tonnes of iron ore on the Brazil-China route will leave an equivalent of 55-60 Capesizes unemployed, but will provide employment for some 20 Capesizes on the Australia-China route.Australia’s port Hedland is 3,524 nautical miles away from Qingdao while the Brazilian port Itaqui, which ships most of the iron ore from Feijao, is 11,979 nautical miles from Qingdao.In a year, one Capesize vessel ships two million tonnes of iron ore from Hedland to Qingdao, while the same vessel ships just 0.7 million tonnes in a year from Itaqui to Qingdao. Therefore, at 12 knots, it takes 30 days for a Capesize vessel to complete a round voyage between Hedland and Qingdao while it takes 85 days for it to complete a round voyage between Itaqui and Qingdao, Drewry’s data shows.In the meantime, most of the iron ore produced at the affected mines is sold on a spot basis and exported to Asia.Replacing the 40 million tonnes will be difficult for any exporter (India, South Africa and Canada) other than Australia.India for example will find it difficult to increase iron ore exports as its domestic demand has been on the rise and the country is fast becoming a major iron ore importer.Elsewhere, South African mines are struggling with rail/road logistic issues to transport iron ore to ports. The country’s iron ore exports declined in 2018, similar to those of India. Likewise, Canada’s exports of iron ore to Asia have been low, and have grown by less than two million tonnes annually over the past five years, Sharan pointed out.“As these three major exporters of iron ore are unlikely to be able to compensate for Vale’s loss of production, Australia will most probably gain from Vale’s loss of exports. However, due to voyage distances a sharp decline in Capesize tonne miles is on the cards,” he concluded.Vale’s CEO Fabio Schvartsman has proposed to Brazil’s Attorney General Raquel Dodge in Brasilia for the company to pay extrajudicial compensation to victims and family members of those affected by the dam breach.According to Schvartsman, payments would be made as soon as the company signs the extrajudicial agreement with the relevant authorities.“We are prepared to waive the lawsuits to expedite an agreement with the authorities of the State of Minas Gerais, so Vale can proceed immediately with the indemnification process,” he said.Vale’s CEO also stated that the company is committed to repairing the environmental damages caused by the dam breach, but, that the main focus at the moment is on responding to the people affected by the incident.
NZ Herald 1 November 2018Family First Comment: Family First director Bob McCoskrie, who revealed the ministry’s decision not to publish the latest statistics today, said the statistical uncertainty made the targets “meaningless”. “We are trying to solve a problem that we are struggling to define,” he said. “If we can’t identify the actual issue with accuracy and certainty, then it makes it very difficult to determine solutions to a problem when you can’t actually specify it.”Child poverty rates for the past two years have been wiped because of a survey mishap, just as targets for reducing the rates are about to become law.The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) has decided not to publish child poverty rates for 2016 or 2017, saying there appear to have been unusually low response rates by low-income households with children which have skewed the results.The decision comes as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s signature Child Poverty Reduction Bill, which requires the Government to set targets to reduce the child poverty rate, passed its second reading in Parliament today.The bill has been endorsed by the National Party, making it certain to pass into law.Family First director Bob McCoskrie, who revealed the ministry’s decision not to publish the latest statistics today, said the statistical uncertainty made the targets “meaningless”.“We are trying to solve a problem that we are struggling to define,” he said.“If we can’t identify the actual issue with accuracy and certainty, then it makes it very difficult to determine solutions to a problem when you can’t actually specify it.”READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12152641

Lionel Messi is among those who is most frustrated with how Barca are doing as a club and has threatened to the board to leave at the end of this season if his demands go unfulfilled. Firstly, Messi has asked for Valverde’s exit on an immediate basis. That said, he does not see Xavi as an ideal candidate for the longer term and wants Koeman to be the coach. With that said, Messi has once again emphasized the need of signings for the club, especially in the attacking department where some players are struggling and others are bearing responsibilities on their shoulders in spite of reaching the final stages of their careers. Neymar and Lautaro Martinez are the two players wanted by Messi at the Camp Nou. read also:Guardiola reacts to Aguero record with Messi comparison Finally, he has told the club to get rid of deadweight or players who may spoil the decorum next season.

More than anything, it was a lapse of concentration and tactical failure from the Blaugrana with Ernesto Valverde once again being blamed for the debacle. However, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez were quick to put the Barca manager behind their backs and insisted that the loss was only their responsibility. Diario GOL has reported that there is a lot more cooking behind the scenes and nobody really is happy within the dressing room with the kind of job that Valverde is doing.Advertisement
