TONIGHT: Rumours, Fleetwood Mac Cover Band Debuts

first_imgUncategorizedTONIGHT: Rumours, Fleetwood Mac Cover Band DebutsThunder will happen, whether or not it’s rainingBy Elina Shatkin – January 10, 2013578ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItSome cover bands merely get on stage and play their favorite group’s greatest hits. Rumours is a collective of another stripe. Featuring members of Rooney and Ben Lee’s band, the Fleetwood Mac devotees are halfway between a traditional cover band and a performance art troupe.Formed in the summer of 2012, they spent months meticulously researching Fleetwood Mac, trying to incorporate every detail about the band (both on-stage and off) into their show: period-accurate equipment, fake British accents, subtle vocal intonations, tormented intra-band romances, and, of course, scarves. Lots and lots of scarves. Tonight, Rumours makes their debut at the Roxy. Gold dust women and men of the world are invited. TAGSBandCover BandEventFleetwood MacL.A.

But if there is no deal, and if we see that Germany remains rigid and wants to blow apart Europe, then we have the obligation to go to plan B. Plan B is to get funding from another source. It could be the United States at best, it could be Russia, it could be China or other countries. Greece’s new government is seen as wanting closer relations with Russia. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has strongly criticised the severity of EU sanctions imposed on Russia its military activity in Ukraine. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Under the EC’s proposals, countries will be allocated a certain number of people to take in, based on the strength of their economy and unemployment rates. Mina Andreeva, the EC’s deputy chief spokeswoman, tweeted a table showing how many people would be allocated to each country, according to the EC’s maths. Interestingly, although the UK comes fairly high up on the list, Ireland is still low down.Critics of the plans have already pointed out 20,000 would cover about three per cent of asylum seekers – although the plans are expected to be blocked altogether by the UK. The government is currently seeking to renegotiate its relationship with the EU, based on objections to its immigration policies.  last_img read more

People / Vicky Brock joins returns specialist ReBound’s senior leadership team

first_img Global e-commerce returns management platform ReBound has appointed Vicky Brock (pictured above) to its senior leadership team.Ms Brock founded retail data technology company Clear Returns, which she led for five years, “enabling retailers to optimise their returns processes to boost profits and improve customer experiences”.In her new role “she will focus on developing ReBound’s returns intelligence solution and driving commercial relationships” and “drive commercial relationships with key retailers and develop the data and insights solution currently in development”“I founded Clear Returns to solve a problem I experienced as a shopper; whenever I returned items I found the experience overwhelmingly off-putting. Very few retailers seemed to take the process seriously or weren’t interested in ‘keep optimisation’: working to help customers buy the right products first time,” she said.“Returns present a major challenge for retailers, potentially harming profitability in the long term. However too few are treating their returns as a priority. With 59% of those under 35 admitting to having stopped shopping with a retailer because of a difficult or unclear returns process, retailers really need to address this issue. Businesses need to source high quality returns intelligence to improve their systems and drive returns innovation. By Gavin van Marle 07/06/2018last_img read more

Ontario budget to contain new spending

first_img Toronto home sales and home prices increased in April Ontario to deliver its second pandemic budget on March 24 Jessica Smith Cross Related news Ontario unlikely to balance budget by 2030: FAO Ontario’s Liberal government will release its first balanced budget in a decade on Thursday, with a host of new spending measures focused on pocketbook issues it hopes will resonate with voters heading into an election year. Premier Kathleen Wynne has in the past few years focused on big-picture plans for the province, such as tackling climate change, massive infrastructure spending and pension reform. But as her party and personal popularity have tanked in the polls, her message has shifted to that of fairness and everyday affordability. center_img She recently unveiled a “Fair Hydro Plan” and a “Fair Housing Plan” and in a speech Monday to announce details of a basic income pilot project, fairness was a theme she often returned to. “In this time of turmoil, we must work harder than ever to build and preserve a fair society,” she said. “We must make sure that hard work is rewarded with a decent pay cheque. We must make sure that the opportunities available to our people and especially our young people not only endure, but grow.” Read: A strong Ontario faces trade concerns By eliminating the deficit, Ontario is in a position to do those things, she said. “My plan builds on the action we have taken and the investments we have made over the past five years,” Wynne said. “It takes dead aim at the challenges that confront us in this new, uncertain world. It puts fairness at the heart of all we do and all we aspire to achieve for the people of Ontario.” Wynne said her approach is not to “cut back on public services, reduce taxes, slash regulations on corporations and let the results trickle down.” That wouldn’t help people who are struggling, Wynne said, adding that the three main elements to her plan are creating a “fair economy,” a “fair future for Ontario workers,” and education. Ontario’s finance minister has already announced that the budget will contain new spending to benefit seniors, students, parents, caregivers and patients. “I’m balancing the budget and I’m proud of that, but that’s not an end in itself,” Charles Sousa told The Canadian Press in a recent interview. “It’s what are we doing as a result of the balance.” Sousa has announced the budget will include a public transit tax credit for seniors 65 years and older. He has also promised a “booster shot” for health care, specifically funding to deal with the problem of overcrowded hospitals, which forces patients to be placed in hallways and other unconventional spaces. On Tuesday, ministers also announced $20 million in funding to increase the available respite services for unpaid caregivers who help friends and family members. The government is also launching an initiative to create 40,000 job training placements and internships over three years for students of all ages and recent graduates, as part of a $190-million Career Kick-Start Strategy. In a recent speech, Sousa highlighted investments the government has made in the innovation sector, saying more of that can be expected in the budget as the government embraces, “new, potentially disruptive technologies.” Sousa has said the budget will refer to the recent housing affordability measures the government announced. However, Sousa’s office said there is “no line in the budget” attributed to a newly announced 15% foreign buyer tax. It’s expected to be revenue neutral, as any money coming in should offset a decrease in revenue from land transfer tax. No further such housing measures will be unveiled in the budget, Sousa said Wednesday, but there will be measures on social housing for low-income residents. Additionally, $200 million will go toward creating 24,000 child care spaces and subsidies for families for about 60% of those spots — as part of the government’s promise last year to create 100,000 more licensed spaces. Cuts to hydro bills will add nearly $2 billion to the budget. An 8% rebate that took effect Jan. 1 is estimated to cost $1 billion a year, and more measures announced last month to help low-income and rural residents will cost taxpayers about $833 million a year. Even with a balanced budget this year, Ontario will still have debt of more than $300 billion. In 2016-17, interest on debt was the province’s fourth-largest spending area, with $11.4 billion of interest on approximately $317 billion of debt. The official opposition maintains the Liberals will only achieve “fake” balance in the budget as a political ploy ahead of the 2018 election. The Progressive Conservatives have even created a “Chef Charles Sousa” online caricature who talks about “cooking the books.” PC Leader Patrick Brown said he believes the Liberals can only balance the budget by dramatically cutting services or raising taxes, or by using accounting “tricks.” He’s specifically watching out for two such tricks: counting public pension surpluses as assets, against the advice of the province’s Auditor general, and counting revenue from the partial sale of Hydro One against the deficit, when the money is intended for a separate trust for infrastructure projects. “It’s Chef Sousa cooking the books to look good in an election year,” said Brown. Ontario’s NDP also sees politics in the budget. “The government’s had 14 years to address the problems that we’ve seen in this province, and they’re now scrambling at the last minute to save their own political skin, as opposed to really being concerned about the realities of life for Ontarians,” said Deputy Leader Jagmeet Singh.

World Bank Provides $265 million Boost to Improve Earthquake Resilience and Energy Efficiency of Public Buildings

first_imgWorld Bank Provides $265 million Boost to Improve Earthquake Resilience and Energy Efficiency of Public Buildings The World Bank today approved a $265 million loan to Turkey to strengthen the safety of public buildings against the dangers of earthquakes while also improving energy efficiency to reduce energy bills and harmful carbon emissions.The Seismic Resilience and Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings Project will better insulate, strengthen or reconstruct more than 140 schools, dormitories, hospitals, and government buildings, directly benefiting about 26,000 people who live, work or use these buildings, including school children and employees. More broadly, the benefits will accrue to more than 6 million citizens reliant on the public services provided by the targeted buildings.The project will make an important contribution to training female engineers and, thereby, increasing the number of female engineers in key technical roles. Turkey has one of the highest gender gaps in the world in labor force participation and this gap is even more acute in technical and engineering sectors.Turkey is one of the most exposed countries in the world to earthquakes, with 76 earthquakes since 1900 resulting in approximately 90,000 deaths, affecting more than 7 million people and with direct losses exceeding US425 billion. Generally, buildings that were built before 2000 when modern construction codes for seismic resistance were introduced in Turkey, are considered to face a higher risk of serious damage in an earthquake. Tens of thousands of public buildings, constructed prior to 2000, that provide critical health, education and public services to citizens are in urgent need of structural strengthening or reconstruction.“The World Bank is pleased to support Turkey in its ambitious plans to make the country’s stock of buildings resilient to earthquake and a source of energy savings. While focused on public buildings, this project is an important step and its success is likely to spur similar transformations in the private sector, thus contributing to Turkey’s climate change mitigation and adaptation agenda,” said Auguste Kouame, World Bank Country Director for Turkey.Energy efficiency is also critical for Turkey to sustain its economic growth while meeting its commitments for climate change and environmental sustainability. With the energy sector accounting for over 70 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and global warming on the rise, thermal insulation and other green measures are critical for ensuring comfort of building occupants without increasing energy consumption. Investments in energy-efficient buildings can also reduce Turkey’s dependence on energy imports while reducing public expenditures on the energy costs of its more than 175,000 public building stock.“Buildings with the greatest vulnerability to disasters are also energy inefficient. By combining structural strengthening of buildings with energy efficiency and renewable energy measures, this project will yield significant cost efficiencies while fostering long-term resilience and sustainability,” noted Alanna Simpson, one of the World Bank Project Team Leaders.“The project will also result in much lower operating costs which the government can redeploy to make other improvements in the provision of public services,” added Jas Singh, the other World Bank Team Leader.The project’s main components include:Investments in central government buildings for seismic strengthening and energy efficiency improvement: This will involve structural strengthening to reduce earthquake risk and increase climate change adaptation interventions, which will include strengthening roofs to withstand wind and snow loads, and rainwater harvesting during times of water scarcity. Measures to improve energy efficiency will support increased functionality and comfort for the buildings’ occupants during extreme heat and cold events, which are expected to increase with climate change. Promotion of renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, will improve business continuity during disasters.Advanced technical assistance and capacity building: This involves the development of a long term and a significantly scaled-up investment program focused on increasing energy efficiency, structural strengthening, and multi-hazard resilience of public buildings. Activities undertaken and lessons learnt under this component will also have broader applicability to private and residential structures in the country.The World Bank is a leading partner in disaster risk management, urban development, and energy efficiency in Turkey. In recent years, the Bank has implemented the Istanbul Seismic Risk Mitigation and Emergency Preparedness Project; the Safe Schools Project financed by the Facility for Refugees in Turkey; the Disaster Risk Management in Schools Project; the Small and Medium Enterprises Energy Efficiency Project; and the Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings Project, among others. /Public Release.

File photoClark County Community Services has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) to solicit possible operators of the new shelter. The RFA is open for applications until Jan. 1. A review committee composed of staff from the county, city and VHA will provide a recommendation for an operator in late January. The goal is for a single operator to be selected and ready to provide services at a site beginning in late February or early March.The shelter will operate 24-hours a day, seven-days a week, and it will be non-congregate meaning households utilizing the shelter will have their own room and restroom facilities, a critical feature during the current COVID-19 pandemic.Referrals to the shelter will be through the Coordinated Entry System utilized by the county as is required by the state. In addition to basic shelter services, it is expected that the shelter operator will also connect and engage residents with services and community supports that address their physical and mental wellness and result in positive and stable housing outcomes.The shelter will operate 24-hours a day, seven-days a week, and it will be non-congregate meaning households utilizing the shelter will have their own room and restroom facilities, a critical feature during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
