The Economist Seeks Termination of Printing Agreement with Quebecor World

first_imgThe Economist is looking to terminate its contract with commercial printer Quebecor World, but says it is open to discussing how to continue the relationship, according to a statement filed jointly by the companies. Quebecor World filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year.According to a court filing, The Economist wants to terminate its print agreement at the expiration of the initial term in September. The printing agreement would continue to be valid until then. The Economist argues that it is being harmed by some of the automatic legal protection that the printer has received under its bankruptcy agreeement. According to the filing, the magazine “is not seeking to enforce a monetary claim against the debtors of their estates. The Economist merely seeks to exercise its contractual right to terminate the printing agreement.” “We understand and respect the decision taken by The Economist and we will continue to provide them with the top quality product and service they expect,” Quebecor World Magazine Group president Doron Grosman said in the joint statement. “We will also work with them in the coming months to prolong and extend our mutually beneficial partnership.”A Quebecor spokesperson could not immediately be reached for further comment.In the court filing, The Economist does not say why it is seeking a termination of the printing agreement. A spokesperson for The Economist declined to comment.Quebecor World, one of the world’s largest printers, announced its bankruptcy filing in January and its entering into a $1 billion financing deal with Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley to help finance the company’s operating needs. Earlier this week, the ailing printer said that, under bankruptcy protection, it would delay the release and filing of its 2007 financial statements until the end of April.last_img read more

Partnerships Trimming Facilities Footprint Are Keys for New ACSIM

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Unsurprisingly, many of the priorities of Lt. Gen. Gwen Bingham, the Army’s new assistant chief of staff for installation management (ACSIM), are focused on ways to cope with severe funding constraints.One of her priorities is carrying out the Army’s ongoing “Reduce the Footprint” initiative, an effort to cut the overall cost of maintaining infrastructure by eliminating excess facilities. The Army spends an estimated $450 million to $500 million annually maintaining underused facilities, reports the Army News Service.“Right now we are in fiscally-constrained times. So being able to garner back dollars on reducing excess infrastructure is important,” Bingham said. “If you could imagine recouping that amount of money every year, and think about how we can invest that in the readiness of our soldiers — that’s huge.”To mitigate funding cuts for morale, welfare and recreation programs, as well as family support programs, Bingham plans to identify efficiencies, and establish and strengthen partnerships to sustain support for personnel and their families.“Realistically speaking, we won’t be able to do everything at the same level that we used to do it,” she acknowledged. “But I can assure you we will spare no effort to make sure that our soldiers and their families have that quality of life that they so richly deserve.”One solution will be to pursue partnerships with military service organizations, according to the story.“Any which way that we can partner to help retain as many of those programs we’ve had in the past, we are certainly going to do that,” Bingham said. “We’ve been doing that already. That’s not a new initiative. Partnerships occur at every level on the installation.”For top leaders in the Army, though, the No. goal is readiness. For Bingham, who assumed the duties as the ACSIM on June 30 after serving as commanding general for the Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Life Cycle Management Command, that means ensuring installations can continue operating under any contingency, including a power outage.“Energy security is becoming an area of increased focus,” she said. “I see it … as a form of force protection and mission assurance. So being able to secure our energy on our own posts, camps and stations and installations is critical. That’s an area we are putting a lot of emphasis on. We have to make sure those installations are able to do their mission.”last_img read more

Study downplays leaking mines impact on fish

first_imgA state Department of Fish and Game staffer works on sampling fish for a study on toxic metal concentrations in Tulsequah and Taku river fish. (Photo courtesy Department of Fish and Game)State biologists say a study shows pollution from an abandoned Canadian mine upstream of Southeast Alaska does not harm fish.A chief critic of the Tulsequah Chief Mine says the research doesn’t tell the whole story.Listen Now The Tulsequah Chief, about 40 miles northeast of Juneau, has been closed for more than a half-century. Two companies tried to reopen the copper, zinc, lead, gold and silver mine in the past decade. Both failed, the most recent earlier this year.So, polluted water has continued to leach into the Tulsequah River, which flows into the Taku River, which enters the ocean near the capital city.That has raised concerns among Taku fishermen that salmon runs are being damaged – or that the fish might be unsafe to eat.Dissolved metals such as copper, which can affect aquatic life, were of particular concern.A Department of Fish and Game study, released in late October, says fish samples aren’t showing metal contamination.“What we found was that the metals concentrations in the fish that we captured at the mine were real similar to the fish upstream and downstream of the mine,” said Jackie Timothy, Southeast regional supervisor of the department’s Habitat Division.The study she co-authored updated similar research released by the department in 2012, with additional sampling of the test fish, Dolly Varden char.Critics of transboundary mines, including the Tulsequah Chief, say the study could leave a false impression, because it doesn’t answer all the questions.“This is just one very small, very discreet little piece of data,” said Guy Archibald, who runs the Inside Passage Waterkeeper Program for the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council.Archibald and other critics point to earlier research estimating 15 tons of dissolved metals flow out of the mine each year. Archibald, who helped write the study’s funding proposal, said it should also have looked for dead fish.Tests sites used in the 2012 Alaska Department of Fish and Game Dolly Varden study are shown. (Map courtesy ADFG)“When you collect fish, you’re collecting only the survivors. You have no idea of what that effluent is killing,” Archibald said.Another concern is that the study tested Dolly Vardens, not salmon.Fish and Game’s Jackie Timothy said Dollies are year-round residents, while salmon are not.Timothy also stressed that the study had a very specific focus.“We weren’t looking at whether or not there was a problem with the mine and whether there was pollution at the mine. That has been well-documented,” Timothy said. “What we were looking at was whether or not fish were being impacted because that was the concern of the fishermen.”Metals found in the sampled fish come from the general environment, she said. They occur naturally in the Tulsequah River, and other areas with mines and large ore bodies.last_img read more

Whats in a name After student push JuneauDouglas High School adds Tlingit

first_imgJuneau-Douglas High School: Kalé sits at the base of the mountain from which it takes its Tlingit name, Jan. 8, 2019. (Photo by Zoe Grueskin/KTOO)On Tuesday night the Juneau School District Board of Education voted unanimously to accept the gift of a Tlingit name for Juneau-Douglas High School. As with other schools in the district, the Tlingit name of Kalé will be an addition, not a replacement.The oldest high school in Alaska’s capital sits at the base of a mountain. That mountain shares its name with the city, and with the school: Juneau.But it has other names.“ Kalé is an ancient name. So it’s not as if Mt. Juneau was always called Mt. Juneau,” said Barbara Cadiente-Nelson, Indian Studies Program director for the Juneau School District. She believes names have power. They connect people and places.For more than a year, a group of people has worked to connect Kalé to another place: Juneau-Douglas High School.The push was led by students, including senior Arias Hoyle.“Even though it’s the name of Mt. Juneau, it does not mean Mt. Juneau. It means ‘beautifully adorned face,’” Hoyle said.Hoyle said student support for the Tlingit name was widespread at his school. To prove it, he collected signatures from around 70 students of diverse backgrounds.Arias Hoyle shows the Juneau School District Board of Education the signatures he collected from students at Juneau-Douglas High School in support of adding a Tlingit name to the school, on Jan. 8, 2019. (Photo by Zoe Grueskin/KTOO)Elders and leaders representing the Áak’w Ḵwaan and T’aaḵu Ḵwáan approved the choice of Kalé. They offered the name as a gift to the high school, after meeting with students and district staff last April.Tlingit elder David Katzeek was one of the leaders at that meeting. He graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 1962.Katzeek said Kalé is open to interpretation. One of the things it means is “coming home.”He explained it like this: Imagine you’re on your way back from a long trip hunting or fishing. Stormy waters. You’re in a small canoe. Waves are crashing.“Sometimes the people in the boat would feel like maybe we’re not going to make it,” Katzeek said. “And they’d be working together, woosh.ji.een.”Katzeek then demonstrated how the boat’s passengers would express themselves in Tlingit when the mountain comes into view.“We see that beautiful face of the mountain … That mountain is just getting more beautiful all the time,” Katzeek said.Juneau-Douglas principal Paula Casperson welcomes the name.“It’s hard for me to see a downside. I think that this just adds on to what I view as a strength of the Juneau School District, which is incorporating where we live and the people and the place that we are,” Casperson said.Cadiente-Nelson said using Tlingit names can be a step toward healing from a painful history. One that has been marked by violent suppression of the Native community.The name, though, is for everyone.“The restoration and bringing it back to life, though it’s always been there. It’s meaningful to not just the Native people of this region, but I believe to the majority of this community,” Carperson said.At their January meeting, the Juneau School Board voted to make Kalé an official part of Juneau-Douglas High School’s name.It won’t happen overnight. Some things, like a new sign out front, will take time and, more importantly, money.But Casperson said the school’s website will be updated quickly. She hopes it will include a pronunciation guide, with audio. Getting the new name on anything printed, like student IDs, will be as simple as changing the template.Hoyle was at the school board meeting when the name was accepted. The vote was unanimous and earned a standing ovation from an unusually large audience. The board members joined in.After the vote, Hoyle said he felt confident. The change, he said, would be empowering.Hoyle plans to graduate in May. When he does, he hopes his diploma will name him a graduate of Juneau-Douglas High School: Kalé.last_img read more

Study indicates Spanish conquest of Peru may have resulted in changes to

first_img The sand dune ridges along the northern coast of Peru came about, the researchers claim, due to earthquakes loosening sand deposits in the Chira valley. That sand was eventually swept into rivers which carried it to the sea. Currents then carried it north eventually depositing it along the shoreline, building up over time into large ridges. Radiocarbon dating of charcoal remnants from fire pits atop some of the ridges has shown them to have formed from over 5000 years ago to as recently as 400 years ago. Excavating one of the existing ridges, the two researchers report, revealed mollusk shells which because there were so many of them, served as a shield against the wind, which would have blown the sand off the ridges long ago, had not the shells been there to offer protection.The Inca, the researchers report, lived along the shorelines of northwest South America for thousands of years, catching, cooking and eating mollusks and tossing the shells aside as they sat atop a ridge. The result was millions of shells littering the surface of the ridges, forming armor of sorts, which allowed the ridges to remain intact far longer than they would have otherwise. But, then, the Spanish arrived, conquering the Incas and forcing them to move inland. After that, the shell littering ceased—without a constantly rejuvenated suit of armor, many of the ridges succumbed to the winds and vanished. Thus, the coast was altered in a way that neither the Inca nor their conquerors could have possibly imagined. Space image: Aorounga Crater, Chad ( —A study by a pair of researchers with the University of Maine suggests that the northern coast of Peru may have been altered due to population shifts as a result of the Spanish conquest in the 1500’s. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Daniel Belknap and Daniel Sandweiss describe a field study they conducted in the area that suggested that Inca living on the coast prior to the Spanish conquest, may have inadvertently been supporting the existence of sand ridges by discarding mollusk shells. After they left, it appears, some of the sand ridges were blown away by the wind.

Belknap, PNAS, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1404568111AbstractWhen Francisco Pizarro and his small band of Spanish conquistadores landed in northern Peru in A.D. 1532 to begin their conquest of the vast Inca Empire, they initiated profound changes in the culture, language, technology, economics, and demography of western South America. They also altered anthropogenically modulated processes of shoreline change that had functioned for millennia. Beginning with the extirpation of local cultures as a result of the Spanish Conquest, and continuing through today, the intersection of demography, economy, and El Niño-driven beach-ridge formation on the Chira beach-ridge plain of Northwestern Peru has changed the nature of coastal evolution in this region. A similar event may have occurred at about 2800 calibrated y B.P. in association with increased El Niño frequency.last_img read more

GeForce Experience 3 ships with mandatory registration

first_imgGeForce Experience 3 ships with mandatory registration by Martin Brinkmann on September 09, 2016 in Games – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 32 commentsGeForce Experience 3 is the latest version of Nvidia’s gaming application for PCs powered by Nvidia video cards.The software ships with Nvidia display drivers but is also available as a standalone application. Designed initially to make the configuration of graphics settings easier for games, GeForce Experience has since then evolved to much more than that.Users of the software may use it to keep their graphics drivers up to date, and even record videos provided that the video card meets the requirements.Its primary purpose however is to provide users with configurations for games that make them run in optimal fashion on the system. This is especially handy for inexperienced gamers who don’t want to or cannot configure games manually.Nvidia GeForce Experience 3Nvidia released GeForce Experience 3 recently which takes the application to the next level according to the company.First thing you will notice after upgrading the application to the new version, or installing it anew, is that you cannot do anything without an account anymore; no driver updates, no video recording, no access to other features.If you don’t register an account or sign in to one, GeForce Experience 3 is dead weight sitting in the system tray and using up memory.While you cannot use the program if you don’t sign up for an account, you may still download display drivers from Nvidia. That’s a manual process though and you won’t benefit from other features that GeForce Experience offers.These features include recording game videos (only if the video card meets the requirements), and configuring video settings for supported games automatically to improve your experience.Note: I have not tried to stay on the old GeForce Experience 2.x version. You may want to try this as you may still use the program without registration. If anyone tried that let me know in the comments.How to uninstall GeForce ExperienceThe best option that you have if you don’t want to sign up for an account to use GeForce Experience is to remove the software from the system. Since it provides no features to you if you don’t have an account, it makes sense to uninstall it.Use the keyboard shortcut Windows-Pause to open the System Control Panel applet.Select “all control panel items” from the address bar.Locate and select Programs and Features.Find Nvidia GeForce Experience in the program listing.Right-click on the program and select uninstall/change.Select uninstall on the Nvidia GeForce prompt to remove the program from the Windows machine.Please note that you need to download and install drivers manually from that moment on. Make sure you select custom installation, and uncheck GeForce Experience and other modules you don’t require, to avoid installing the software again.Check out this Nvidia driver installation guide for instructions on how to do that.Now You: What’s your take on the new GeForce Experience 3.0?SummaryArticle NameGeForce Experience 3 ships with mandatory registrationDescriptionGeForce Experience 3 is the latest version of Nvidia’s gaming application for PCs powered by Nvidia video cards.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Drug traffickers who cooperate with the US government have it pretty good

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. — Drug traffickers who cooperate with U.S. federal investigators are poorly vetted, and the Drug Enforcement Administration did not properly monitor at least 240 informants — some of whom crossed the line into illegal activity and were under criminal investigation by other authorities.That’s the conclusion of a new report from the Justice Department watchdog, who found another weakness in the DEA’s oversight of its informants: Some of them get workers’ compensation benefits from the government despite questionable qualifications.Investigators from Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s office found that the DEA paid more than $1 million in these benefits in 2014 to 17 informants or their dependents — without proper government controls, according to a report made public last week. The DEA used “over 240 confidential sources without rigorous review,” investigators found in the report, made public last week. “This created a significant risk that improper relationships between government handlers and sources could be allowed to continue over many years, potentially resulting in the divulging of sensitive information or other adverse consequences for the government.”In some cases, the agency continued for years — with no intervention from the Justice Department, its parent agency — to use informants involved in criminal activity, some of them considered high-risk.The criticism comes as the DEA has been under fire in recent months from Congress and Justice officials. Administrator Michele Leonhart was forced to step down in May following revelations about “sex parties” involving prostitutes overseas and other misconduct among agents.The DEA, created by the Nixon administration in 1973 during the war on drugs, enforces the country’s drug laws and bring violators to justice. A basic way agents do their jobs is by recruiting informants. The agency is supposed to monitor when they cross the line into illegal activity and keep tight tabs on them, according to guidelines set by the attorney general.Interesting read: The intellectual architect of the US’ modern war on drugs has diedBut investigators found that the agency hasn’t always followed those guidelines, instead setting up its own standards. So drug kingpins, as well as lawyers, doctors or journalists haven’t been vetted as they should be, even though they’re considered high-risk informants.Despite what the policies say, the DEA’s review of potential informants’ files has long been a quick rubber stamp, investigators found. In a video released with the report, Horowitz said his investigators uncovered evidence that he said “raises significant concerns for one of the DEA’s more significant and sensitive programs.”A committee charged with reviewing informants weighed each source for an average of a minute each from 2003 to 2012, Horowitz said. “And that’s when there was any review at all.”Justice Department spokesman Patrick Rodenbush said Justice officials ordered a comprehensive review of the DEA’s confidential source policies late last year.“The review will address and revise policies related to high-level, privileged and media-related confidential sources and put in place more stringent requirements to better assess and mitigate risk when approving” illegal activity, Rodenbush said in a statement.The agency also has a put moratorium on seeking workers’ compensation for confidential sources and is reviewing its policies and procedures for handling current recipients, he said.Horowitz said said the report was delayed “for months at a time” because the DEA held back information from investigators. Even after a year of investigating, the inspector general’s office calls its review of the informant program “limited.”Despite a lack of documentation, claims submitted to the Labor Department by DEA officials seeking compensation for injuries or death of informants were routinely approved, investigators found. For example:A confidential source was presumably killed overseas in 1991, and the DEA got benefits for the source’s family. But according to the file, there were no witnesses to the informant’s death and the body had not been recovered.A source who was shot and injured at home in 2002 received benefits, even though the informant’s file indicates that there were no witnesses to the shooting and contains no evidence of a link between the shooting and the person’s status as a DEA source.The U.S. Labor Department apparently considered the applications for workers’ compensation to be accurate. Some “disabled” confidential sources drew paychecks from both the DEA and the Labor Department for years.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:Military helicopter shot down as drug violence surges in western Mexico Global drug policy isn’t working.

Deadline looms for legal status in Dominican Republic

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 The law is aimed at regulating the historic flow of migrants from impoverished Haiti to the relatively wealthier Dominican Republic. The government pushed it forward last year amid international criticism of a Supreme Court decision saying people born in the country to non-citizens did not qualify for citizenship under the constitution unless they had at least one parent who was a citizen or legal resident. The ruling rendered thousands effectively stateless. The government said about 50,000 people in this category will be granted citizenship.The Interior Ministry has said there are about 500,000 people who could qualify for residency under the program. So far, about 250,000 have registered, but officials said only about 10,000 have produced sufficient documentation.Those who have registered have temporary documents that will allow them to remain while their cases are evaluated. Although Dominican officials sent some Haitians across the border at Malpasse, Haiti, on Wednesday, authorities have said they don’t plan mass deportations soon. Still, the country’s migration agency has prepared about a dozen buses and set up repatriation centers.“There is a lot of uncertainty and worry,” said Joseph Cherubin, director of an organization called the Sociocultural Movement of Haitian Workers.

Comments   Share   The vital role family plays in society Human rights groups say they fear that migration agency officials and the military will deport people arbitrarily if they look Haitian or speak Spanish with a Creole accent as has been done in the past. Associated Press journalists along the border said about 12 people were deported Wednesday, some claiming they had been in the country before October 2011.Another concern is an estimated 50,000 people who have no documentation at all, including many who were born in the Dominican Republic. Some may qualify to stay but have no way to prove their claim and could be deported to a country they know nothing about.“It would be catastrophic because they have never been in Haiti, they don’t know anyone there, they don’t have family,” said Chiari Ligouri, a researcher for the Caribbean chapter of Amnesty International. “What would happen with them?”The Haitian government has cleared a field near the border-crossing point at Malpasse to provide assistance to people who have been deported. That area was deserted Wednesday except for some guards and construction crews.Some Haitians apparently were unwilling to wait around the find out what will happen: A local TV station broadcast images of what it said were Haitians in vehicles loaded with furniture and other belongings, headed for the border. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — People waited anxiously in long lines throughout the Dominican Republic on Wednesday, eager to submit applications for legal residency before a midnight deadline and avoid possible deportation.Many had been waiting since the night before, clutching documents they hoped would be sufficient to establish their legal status and allow them to stay in a country that, for some at least, is the only home they have ever known. Nearly all are from Haiti or of Haitian descent.

Under the “regularization” program, he should qualify for legal residency, but the Haitian government has yet to provide him with a birth certificate to establish his identity.Others said they had similar difficulties getting identification from the Haitian Embassy or have been unable to get documents from employers in the Dominican Republic, where many work under informal arrangements in construction, agriculture or as gardeners and maids.“On my own, I haven’t been able to resolve anything,” said Delinua Jean-Francois, who said he had been harvesting sugar cane in the country since 1984.The immigration registration program was supposed to have started in 2004 but it was delayed by legal challenges and didn’t begin until last June. Non-citizens must show they have been in the country since before October 2011 to qualify for legal residency.last_img read more

Cruise ban continues for schoolies

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H P&O Cruises allowed to enforce ‘schoolies’ ban A ban by Carnival Australia on ‘schoolies’ cruises will continue after the Australian Human Rights Commission gave the company, operators of P&O Cruises, a two and a half year exemption from age discrimination legislation.The exemption, which covers ‘unauthorised events’ on its ships, allows P&O Cruises to apply the policy without being in breach of the Commonwealth’s Age Discrimination Act. The ban, which includes strict policies on the responsible service of alcohol and zero tolerance of excessive behaviour, is key to the company’s ‘safety-first’ approach.  “Our strong stance on ‘schoolies’ cruises is part of an approach that aims to prevent unauthorised events that could compromise the health, safety and security of our passengers and crew,” Carnival Australia chief executive Ann Sherry said.“The Australian Human Rights Commission’s determination is a commonsense outcome that will be welcomed by all cruise passengers wanting to enjoy a relaxed cruise holiday without the risk of being subject to excessive behaviour. “It effectively recognises that P&O Cruises discriminates in favour of maintaining a safe and secure environment on board our vessels.” Key to Carnival Australia’s policy is the proviso that any passenger under the age of 19 travelling between 1 November and 7 January from an Australian port must be accompanied by a responsible adult.last_img read more

OCC Announces Deputy Comptroller Appointments

first_img October 27, 2014 451 Views in Government, Headlines, News The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) announced Monday two deputy comptroller appointments, naming Darrin Benhart as deputy comptroller for supervision risk management and Bethany Dugan as deputy comptroller for operational risk.A veteran of OCC since 1992, Benhart has served in a variety of technical and managerial roles in the last two decades, including roles as director for commercial credit in the agency’s Credit and Market Risk division and as deputy comptroller for the same division, a title he received in August 2011.During his earlier tenure, Benhart was heavily involved in OCC’s efforts to implement the recommendations of the Supervision Peer Review, which brought together a group of senior international regulators to evaluation the agency’s supervision of large and midsize banks.As deputy comptroller for supervision risk management, Benhart will serve as full-time chair of OCC’s National Risk Committee, a new position created as a response to the international peer review. The committee is tasked with identifying primary and emerging areas of risk affecting national banks and federal savings associations and assuring they are communication throughout the industry.”Darrin has played a key role in the OCC’s efforts to monitor and address risk in the national banking system, and he has served as co-chair of the National Risk Committee for the past three years,” said Jennifer C. Kelly, senior deputy comptroller for bank supervision policy and chief national bank examiner at OCC. “This new position will enhance the OCC’s ability to address risk in the system, and nobody is better qualified than Darrin to fill this role. He has a deep understanding of the industry, strong analytical skills and a well-deserved reputation for collaboration across the agency.”Meanwhile, Dugan, who is currently the examiner in charge of Citizens Bank, NA in Providence, Rhode Island, will now oversee the development of policy and examination procedures that address operational risk issues.Dugan joined OCC in 1987 and was commissioned as a national bank examiner in 1993. In her time at the agency, she has developed specialized skills in information technology, leading to her appointment as IT lead expert in the Southeastern District. From there, she transitioned to Large Bank Supervision as an IT specialist, serving as a team leader on the Wells Fargo supervision staff.”Operational risk has been a key concern for the OCC for several years now, and Beth has held a number of key positions that have amply prepared her to assume responsibility for policy in this area,” Kelly said. “Of particular importance today is cybersecurity, which falls under operational risk, and Beth has spent a number of years as an Information Technology (IT) specialist in both community bank and large bank supervision.””I’m very pleased that we have men and women of the caliber of Darrin and Beth to fill these important positions,” she added.
