first_imgWASHINGTON – The Trump administration has told Congress that it’s reached a deal that would allow Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE Corp. to stay in business, a source familiar with the talks who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a confidential matter said Friday.A resolution of the ZTE case could clear the way for the United States to make progress in its high-stakes trade talks with China. But news of the agreement drew immediate fire on Capitol Hill.Under the agreement, ZTE would oust its management team, hire American compliance officers and pay a fine. The fine would come on top of the roughly $1 billion ZTE has already paid for selling equipment to North Korea and Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions.In return, the Commerce Department would lift a seven-year ban on ZTE’s purchase of components that the Chinese firm depends on from U.S. companies. The ban, imposed earlier this month, threatened to put ZTE out of business.“This is a law enforcement action being handled by Commerce,” said Lindsay Walters, the deputy White House press secretary. “We are making sure ZTE is held accountable for violating U.S. sanctions, pays a big price and that we are protecting our security infrastructure and U.S. jobs.”The Commerce Department did not immediately respond to a call seeking further details about the agreement.On Capitol Hill, one senior congressional source said leaders have not yet received formal notification.Lawmakers have warned the administration not to go easy on a company that brazenly violated U.S. sanctions against two rogue nations that were pursuing nuclear weapons production.“If the administration goes through with this reported deal, President Trump would be helping make China great again,” said Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York.Schumer added: “Both parties in Congress should come together to stop this deal in its tracks.”“ZTE presents a national security threat to the United States — and nothing in this reported deal addresses that fundamental fact,” said Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. “If President Trump won’t put our security before Chinese jobs, Congress will act on a bipartisan basis to stop him.”Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida tweeted: “It is a great deal … for #ZTE & China … Many hoped this time would be different.”Congress, Rubio said, “will need to act.”Trump responded to his critics late Friday, saying Democrats had done nothing to rein in ZTE. “I closed it down then let it reopen with high level security guarantees, change of management and board, must purchase U.S. parts and pay a $1.3 Billion fine,” he tweeted.The Commerce Department last month blocked China’s ZTE from importing American components for seven years, having concluded that ZTE deceived U.S. regulators after it settled charges last year of violating sanctions against Iran and North Korea. The ban amounted to a virtual death sentence for ZTE, which relies on U.S. parts, and it also hurt ZTE’s U.S. suppliers.On the eve of broad trade talks last week with a Chinese trade envoy, Trump waded into the ZTE case: He tweeted that he was working with President Xi Jinping to put ZTE “back in business, fast” and save tens of thousands of Chinese jobs.He later tweeted that the ZTE talks were “part of a larger trade deal” being negotiated with China.Word of a reported ZTE agreement comes nearly a week after the U.S. and China suspended plans to impose tariffs on as much as $200 billion of each other’s goods. In doing two, the two nations pulled back from the brink of a trade war over Chinese demands that U.S. companies hand over some of their technology as the price of doing business in China.Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is scheduled to travel to Beijing on June 2 for further discussions over China’s aggressive push to challenge U.S. technological dominance. Resolving the ZTE case — a company that employs more than 70,000 Chinese — could make the talks go more smoothly.___AP Staff Writers Lisa Mascaro and Zeke Miller contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta Opposition leader Jason Kenney says it’s time to take immediate action on the oil-price differential before it leads to further job cuts and losses to the province’s core industry.Kenney says he will work with Premier Rachel Notley’s government to fast-track a new law that would order companies to cut production by 10 percent.He says it’s a drastic solution but one that is necessary. Alberta oil is now selling at sharply discounted prices due in part to bottlenecks in pipelines.Alberta Energy Minister Marg McCuaig-Boyd says her department is open to all ideas.But she says opinion is divided on whether legislated cuts to oil production are the answer.Premier Rachel Notley has been searching for solutions to get more oil to market and her government is now in negotiations to buy rail cars for increased transport.last_img read more

“The football pitch and playground inaugurated today are tremendously important for the well-being of the children of Aida Camp,” said the Commissioner-General of UNRWA, Pierre Krähenbühl, in a press release.“Together with our Palestinian and international partners, we are committed to continue supporting the children who have endured so much unacceptable pain and suffering,” he stressed.The new spaces have been made possible with a generous contribution from the UN Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) and will provide the children of Aida camp with a rare opportunity to play within a very challenging environment.”The refugee children of Aida camp are particularly exposed to frequent confrontations, resulting violence and tear gas in the camp. The playground and the football pitch provide a much-needed opportunity for these kids to play, have fun and for a moment forget about the daily challenges they face living under military occupation,” explained the Director of UNRWA Operations in the West Bank, Felipe Sanchez.Diplomats from various countries and community representatives attended the inauguration in addition to UNRWA’s top officials, including the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iceland, Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson, and the Director of the Lajee Center, Salah Ajarma.The inauguration event also featured a football match between diplomats and children of Aida camp as well as an exhibition of photographs by Osama Silwadi portraying UNRWA staff’s commitment to the protection of Palestine refugees.The inauguration comes after several months of increased violence in and around Aida camp, with almost daily confrontations between Israeli security forces and Palestinians. From 1 October 2015 to 11 February 2016, UNRWA recorded 93 incursions by Israeli forces into Aida camp, and more than 512 Palestine refugees, including 61 minors, were injured. read more

“The world needs your leadership to meet the climate challenge,” Mr. Ban said in remarks at a high-level meeting on resilience with insurance industry leaders and other stakeholders at UN Headquarters in New York this morning. Emphasizing that the “impacts of climate change will affect every aspect of our lives,” the Secretary-General noted that the insurance industry played a key role at the Climate Summit he hosted in 2014 and was instrumental in mobilizing momentum for the Paris Agreement in December 2015. Climate change “profoundly affects” the core business of the insurance industry because the industry will be faced with “mounting claims of a magnitude not yet seen” and also because the industry’s investment decisions can give rise to unexpected risks. “Conversely, if you invest wisely, you could reap new rewards – for both your own businesses and society at large,” the UN chief said. Recalling the ‘Anticipate, Absorb, and Reshape’ multi-stakeholder global initiative that he launched this past year to increase climate resilience, Mr. Ban stressed the importance of better anticipating and acting on climate hazards through early earning and early action, as well as reshaping development to reduce risks at both national and international levels. The initiative – referred to as ‘A2R’ – was launched this past November by Mr. Ban and 13 agencies of the UN system, and aims to strengthen the ability of countries to anticipate hazards, absorb shocks, and reshape development to reduce climate risks. Among the actions that the insurance industry should take include greening its investment portfolios and, by 2020, to measuring its carbon footprint. In addition, the industry should also ‘decarbonize’ its investments so as not to contribute to rising greenhouse emissions, the Secretary-General said. “It is not enough to simply create new products to respond to climate catastrophes,” he stressed. “At some $25 trillion dollars, you own some of the world’s largest investment portfolios.Your investment decisions are crucial for reducing the growth of carbon emissions and protecting again the financial disruption caused by stranded assets.” Mr. Ban also challenged the industry to double investments in clean energy and work with the UN to ensure that early warning and early actions are made available to the most vulnerable countries by 2020, since more than one million people have already lost their lives to disasters in this century. In addition, he said that the world’s most vulnerable people should be provided with greater access to risk transfer mechanisms. “The poorest and most vulnerable people – those who have done least to cause climate change – need support to reduce their exposure to climate impacts,” the UN chief said. Lastly, Mr. Ban challenged the insurance industry to develop auditable standards in the industry that incorporate the Sustainable Development Goals. “It is no longer sufficient to work on voluntary principles and guidelines that do not affect vital decisions,” he said. “It is no longer sufficient to think that human development is the responsibility of governments alone. We thought the same about climate change for years. We were wrong.” Also attending the meeting were Robert Glasser, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR); Selwin Hart, Director of the Climate Change Support Team; and Mike McGavick, Chairperson of the Geneva Association. read more

We hope that our results will encourage the search for blood markers indicating the presence of pancreatic cancer, which could guide decisions to perform a confirmation examination like endoscopy,” she said. Maggie Blanks, chief executive of national charity Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund welcomed the findings.She said: “The association between pancreatic cancer and type 2 diabetes has been an area of interest to researchers for several years, so it’s great to see studies generating new and potentially very valuable information which could alert clinicians to the need for further investigation in certain patients.  Show more The pancreas creates insulin, and type 2 diabetes is caused when the body does not use the hormone properly, creating insulin resistance. Experts said it was possible that the treatment for diabetes increases  the risk of pancreatic cancer, or that the cancer caused the increased risk of diabetes. While diabetes is extremely common, with more than 3.5 million cases in the UK, pancreatic cancer remains relatively rare, with around 10,000 diagnoses annually. obese  womanlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram During the past week my company, Yellow Brick Road, started “The RBA Appeal”, an online campaign that allowed Australians to tell the Reserve Bank the kind of financial pressures they were under. While watching the videos and reading through the emails and messages, one thing that struck me was the degree to which people don’t really understand the role of the Reserve Bank. The Reserve is an independent government agency that oversees the financial system, and controls things like foreign exchange reserves and gold policy. But what it does once a month is meet and discuss whether they will raise their official cash interest rate – the rate at which the government will lend to the finance sector. By setting this official rate, they set a benchmark for variable rate mortgages because lenders price their mortgages off the official cash rate. This is called monetary policy – controlling an economy with the cost of money. The RBA’s mandate is to keep inflation within healthy limits, between 2 and 3 percent. It does this by raising interest rates when inflation is too high, and dropping interest rates when inflation looks to be too low. The problems at the moment are not of the RBA’s making. Inflation is coming from areas that cannot be controlled by monetary policy. For instance, the government can pursue a fiscal policy in parallel with monetary policy. In fiscal policy, the government controls the economy with the supply of money – its own spending- via a fiscal stimulus package or a First Home Owner Grant. This can be inflationary. So the RBA can be raising interest rates to control inflation created by government spending. There are also problems with a ‘two-speed’ economy that the RBA cannot deal with by simply manipulating interest rates. If mining is booming, creating inflationary pressures with the wages it pays and the increased spending it has to make, then the RBA cannot quarantine that inflation because of where it comes from. Likewise with the actual prices that are rising.The RBA controls overall inflation with reference to the Consumer Price Index, a rolling average of prices in Australia created by the Australia Bureau of Statistics. It’s 11 line items, from food and alcohol to education and financial services. When these add up to a CPI of near to or over 3 per cent, the RBA will lift interest rates, regardless of the fact that some of this result is caused by one sector, such as power generation or supermarkets. So, Middle Australia pays the price rises and then gets hit with interest rate rises. It doesn’t seem fair but it is our system. Regardless, we all deserve a say, so keep those messages and videos coming.last_img read more

first_imgTen Rohingya Muslim men with their hands bound kneel as members of the Myanmar security forces stand guard in Inn Din village. Photo: ReutersThe violence which drove 700,000 Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar into Bangladesh was “without excuse”, US vice president Mike Pence told Aung San Suu Kyi in stinging comments on Wednesday.On the sidelines of a summit in Singapore Pence piled the pressure on Myanmar’s de facto leader, calling for an explanation of the jailing of two Reuters journalists over their coverage of the crisis.Suu Kyi has seen her reputation as a rights defender shredded by her refusal to speak up for the Rohingya, a stateless group reviled in the Buddhist-majority country.She has already had an Amnesty International honour revoked this week and faced sharp words from Malaysia’s prime minister at a usually tepid meeting of Southeast Asian nations in Singapore.In direct marks as he sat next to Suu Kyi, Pence condemned the “violence and persecution” against the Rohingya as “without excuse”.Then in a front-on challenge to Myanmar’s civilian leader, Pence said he was “anxious to hear about the progress” being made to hold the perpetrators accountable.A crackdown led by Myanmar’s army last year sparked an exodus of the Muslim minority into neighbouring Bangladesh, taking with them accounts of atrocities — rape, murder and arson of their villages.UN investigators say the army’s actions amounted to genocide.Suu Kyi brushed off Pence’s comments.”In a way, we can say we understand our country better than any other country does,” she said.On Thursday a long-delayed — and heavily criticised — plan to repatriate Rohingya was set to begin, despite dire warnings their safety will be in jeopardy if forced to return to Myanmar.The process has undergone several false starts before.Myanmar does not want its Rohingya, who are officially described as “Bengali” illegal immigrants.And the Rohingya do not want to go back without security guarantees and citizenship.But the fetid and overcrowded refugee camps in Bangladesh offer little future for the more than one million Rohingya who have fled successive waves of violence in Myanmar.- Jailed journalists -The Rohingya crisis has tarnished Myanmar’s reputation among large sections of an international community which helped shape its transition from outright military rule.Suu Kyi has no power over the army, which retains autonomy over all security matters.But she has come under fire for not doing more to speak out against the generals’ excesses.She has also been criticised for her failure to speak up for two Reuters reporters jailed for seven years for breaching a colonial-era state secrets act after reporting on the extrajudicial killing of 10 Rohingya men during a military crackdown last year.Pence called their case “deeply troubling”, adding the US placed a “premium … on a free and independent press”.A senior US official told reporters that Pence asked Suu Kyi directly and repeatedly to pardon the two reporters during their talks.The official did not say how Suu Kyi responded.The sentence prompted a storm of global outcry as an assault on freedom of speech, casting doubt on the direction and depth of Myanmar reforms.In her only direct comments on the Reuters case Suu Kyi — herself once a political prisoner held under house arrest by the former junta — has said the pair were jailed under a fair legal process.”They were not jailed because they were journalists” but because “the court has decided that they had broken the Official Secrets Act”, she said in September.Suu Kyi’s civilian government had the power to drop the charges.Reuters has appealed the verdict and has been lobbying for the release of the pair who they say were set up by police and arrested to silence their reporting.The High Court is likely to take up to five or six months to rule on the appeal, during which time the reporters will remain in Yangon’s notorious Insein prison.After numerous delays, the first significant group of Rohingya — some 2,000 strong — is due to return to Myanmar on 15 November as part of a repatriation deal signed with Bangladesh a year ago.However, the UN and rights groups maintain that conditions for their “safe, dignified and sustainable” return are still not in place.last_img read more

first_img Journal information: Science More information: Joshua Sokol. New tactics clash on speed of expanding universe, Science (2019). DOI: 10.1126/science.365.6451.306 © 2019 Science X Network Credit: CC0 Public Domain Estimates of its value based on studying the light emitted from the Big Bang differ from those calculated using data from supernovas. Put a simpler way, researchers using data from studies involving the oldest history of the universe have calculated a different value for the Hubble Constant than those involved in studying more recent activity. And the reason it has become such a hot topic is because if a reasonable reason for the differences cannot be found, scientists in the field might have to completely rethink how the universe works.The basis of the debate began back in the 1920s when Edwin Hubble noted that the farthest objects in the universe appear to be moving away from one another faster. Theorists suggested a fixed number could be used to express just how fast the universe was expanding—thus the Hubble Constant was born. It is defined as the rate of expansion of the universe. As its name implies, theory suggests it is a single unchanging number. But experiments to find the true value of the Hubble Constant have delivered mixed results. One technique involves using data from devices that measure the cosmic microwave background, which is believed to be light emitted not long after the Big Bang. Such studies have shown the Hubble Constant to be 67.4 km/s/Mpc, with an error rate of just 0.5 km/s/Mpc. Meanwhile, other studies involving use of data from supernova have found the constant to be 74.0 km/s/Mpc—a far cry from the first error rate. Clearly both cannot be correct, unless there was something odd going on during the early expansion of the universe. Some physicists believe it is possible that there was a different kind of dark energy pushing the universe apart back then, accounting for the difference.In any case, the researchers at the recent meeting voted against calling it a crisis, suggesting that few in the field are ready to throw out major theories underlying the understanding of how the universe works—at least not right now.

first_imgHuge damage was caused in the Nicosia areas of Ayios Trimithias and Paliometocho by a whirlwind that hit homes and electricity supply on Sunday afternoon.According to reports the whirlwind was as high as 200 metres and cut through mainly Ayios Trimithias, damaging everything in its path. There were no reports of injuries but electricity lines were cut by falling trees, according to an EAC spokesperson who told Cybc that three teams were in the area but it could be as late as tomorrow before power will be restored.The community leader of Ayios Trimithias, Giorgos Iacovou called it a catastrophe. He said some homes were so damaged their occupants would have to spend the night in a hotel or with friends or relatives.“It came from the north-east and lasted a long time,” he said of the whirlwind. “It lifted tiles off roofs and cut electricity to the area.
