A Vietnamese-flagged cargo ship sank off the coast of Sri Lanka, leaving four crew members missing, the Vietnam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Center (Vietnam MRCC) announced Tuesday.The Saigon Queen, owned by the Saigon Shipping Joint Stock Company (SSC), was carrying timber from Myanmar to India with 22 crew members onboard when it sank in Sri Lankan waters due to bad weather caused by a storm. After Vietnam MRCC received a mayday call from the ship at around 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, it transmitted an emergency announcement to other ships in the vicinity of the Saigon Queen for help. At 9:20 p.m. the same day, the Cyprus-flagged ship Pacific Skipper rescued three sailors from the Saigon Queen and kept in touch with 16 others who boarded life-rafts after the accident. Three sailors were still missing. Bad weather and darkness hindered rescue efforts.At 10:40 p.m. the Pacific Skipper successfully approached the 16 crew members on the life-rafts. The sailors were reported to be in good health, except for one who was slightly injured. When the Pacific Skipper was bringing the sailors aboard, Saigon Queen’s captain Nguyen Minh Luan, 51, accidently fell into the water. He has been missing ever since.The Vietnam MRCC told newswire VnExpress it was still working with relevant agencies to search for Luan and three other missing sailors named Hoang Van Ban, 58, Tran Van De, 54, and Pham Phu Huu, 27.The Pacific Skipper was heading for Bangladesh with 18 rescued sailors. It is expected that the ship will arrive at the port of Mongla on November 3. (Thanh Nien) read more

The new UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) military spokesman, Maj. François Ouedraogo, told journalists yesterday that security has been reinforced along the border in the wake of the killing of some 160 Banyamulenge (Congolese Tutsi) refugees at the Burundian transit centre at Gatumba during the night of 13 August.MONUC’s Force Commander, Gen. Iliya Samaila, had toured eastern DRC and visited Burundi’s capital, Bujumbura, to talk with UN troops and Congolese officers and to explore, with his counterpart of the UN Operation in Burundi (ONUB), further joint activities on the ground.In the framework of the Disarmament, Demobilization, Repatriation, Resettlement and Reintegration process, meanwhile, a high-level Ugandan delegation has arranged for the repatriation of the remaining 100 troops from Kananga Province, according to MONUC spokeswoman Patricia Tomé.The mission had repatriated the majority of them to Entebbe, Uganda, last December, she said. read more

US consumer confidence up in December as economy gains steam by Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press Posted Dec 30, 2014 8:12 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Friday, Dec. 26, 2014, file photo, shoppers stand in line at Nordstrom Rack, in Schaumburg, Ill. The Conference Board releases its December index on U.S. consumer confidence, Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File) WASHINGTON – Impressed with an improving economy, American consumers are feeling more confident, a private survey showed.The Conference Board said Tuesday its consumer confidence index climbed to 92.6 this month from a revised 91 in November.Consumers registered a more favourable view of current economic conditions; 17.1 per cent said jobs were plentiful, up from 16.2 per cent in November. Just 19.6 per cent said business conditions were bad, down from 21.8 per cent last month.Expectations for the near future fell slightly. Compared to November, fewer consumers in December said they planned to buy a home or a car in the next six months. But 52.2 per cent said they planned to buy a major appliance, the highest share since 2010, noted Laura Rosner, an economist at BNP Paribas. She predicts “continued strength in consumer spending.” And their outlook is rosier now than it was when 2014 began.Consumers have plenty of reasons to feel better. The economy grew from July through September at a 5 per cent annual rate, fastest clip in 11 years. Employers are adding nearly 241,000 jobs a month this year — on pace to make 2014 the best year for hiring since 1999. The unemployment rate remained at a six-year low 5.8 per cent last month. The missing piece of the economic recovery is pay: Wages are barely keeping up with inflation.Still, tumbling gasoline prices are putting a bit of cash back in consumers’ pockets: According to AAA, the average gallon of gasoline nationwide costs $2.27, down from $2.78 a month ago.Another measure of consumer confidence — the University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment index — jumped this month to 93.6 from 88 in November. Michigan’s December reading was the highest since January 2007, nearly a year before the Great Recession began. read more

first_imgRio Tinto is developing a new chemical procedure to process jadarite, a mineral discovered in 2004 with concentrations of lithium and boron, as it looks to unlock the potential at its Jadar asset in Serbia.The company’s Technical Development Centre in Bundoora, Victoria (Australia), in collaboration with the company’s team of global experts, is using ground-breaking methods to reduce jadarite to its component parts, according to a release from the International Mining and Resources Conference.This will see lithium carbonate and boric acid produced from the mined ore.Lithium is increasingly being used to produce batteries for electric vehicles and mobile phones, while borates are essential components for heat-resistant glass, fibreglass and smartphone screens.Rio Tinto’s Group Executive – Growth and Innovation, Stephen McIntosh said Rio’s Bundoora site had an essential role in its global business.“Our Bundoora Technical Development Centre was established more than 25 years ago. It has a proud history of applying innovative thinking to help us to maximise value in our business,” he said.“The centre is actively involved in applying technical expertise to improve how we find, study, build, optimise and close our operations.”Rio Tinto has built a pilot processing plant within a large shipping container to be relocated to the Serbia mine site should the project proceed to production. The company is currently working on a prefeasibility study on Jadar, the only project where there is a known occurrence of jadarite.Rio has invested more than $100 million on the project to date. Significant investment is required to continue technical analysis and planning to move from prefeasibility to feasibility, then to construction and operation, the latter of which could occur in 2023-2024.The resource base at Jadar is currently are 21 Mt of B2O3-equivalent and 2.5 Mt of Li2O-equivalent.The IMARC conference and exhibition, taking place this week in Melbourne, Victoria, is developed in collaboration with its founding partners the Victorian State Government of Australia, Austmine, AusIMM and Mines and Money.last_img read more

first_imgEngland boss Gareth Southgate has attributed the injury crisis and suspension in his squad to the early kick-off of the Premier League shortly after their World Cup exploits.England are set to confront Spain in Seville but are decimated by suspensions and injuries.An injury crisis coming into this international double-header has been exacerbated by suspensions to John Stones and Jordan Henderson, and Southgate revealed to the Express: “Maybe they were expecting us to be back by the end of June.“Of course it’s always easy to make a comment like that and not know the complex scenario decision-makers had to go through.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“But everybody knew when the final was and the semi-final, and that they would be away for a period of time. It’s a bit like our clubs in the Champions League. Some of the rest of the leagues in Europe help them and adjust the fixture list.“And I’m sure our clubs would appreciate that because in the end they’re representing English football and we want them all to do well.”“When you see the league, a lot of teams haven’t started yet at the level when they are at their maximum,” said Southgate.“And there are a lot of injuries across our league.

first_imgThis week the U.S. Senate is considering S. 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act(EPMA), a comprehensive energy bill that includes provisions ranging from energy efficiency to modernizing the nation’s electricity transmission grid and funding for energy research.  There has also been 231 amendments filed so far, including several aimed at eliminating ethanol from the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) or eliminating the RFS entirely.   Senate leaders hope to pass the bill this week with a strong bipartisan vote and are trying to fend off any controversial amendments.  The RFS related amendments are among the controversial amendments that are not expected to be brought up for a vote.  The American Soybean Association (ASA) and our biodiesel industry partners are monitoring the bill and the amendment process.The bill’s provisions to increase energy efficiency, modernize the nation’s electric grid, and increase federal funding for energy research are designed to lower energy costs, improve reliability, and make the U.S. economy more competitive internationally and they enjoy bipartisan support. However, there are some partisan and geographical differences regarding the conflicting interests of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources as well as issues unrelated to energy policy that threaten to derail the bill.The underlying bill includes revisions to the Biomass Research & Development Initiative (BRDI), a program that is authorized under Section 9008 of the Farm Bill Energy Title.  The EMPA would amend the BRDI program to provide research assistance and grants for the development of woody biomass heat and biopower projects, as well as a provision specifically including oilseed crops as eligible for the new grant program.  The BRDI is jointly administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Energy.Among the many amendments that have been filed is one from Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) that would establish a federal education program to ensure landowners are given all of the federal conservation options available to them when choosing to put their land into a conservation easement.  There is no indication as of yet whether the Rounds amendment will be considered.The ASA will continue to update members on the status of RFS related amendments and any other issues in the EMPA relevant to soybean farmers.last_img read more

first_img“The difference with YouTube is there is still revenue-sharing going on,” he says, noting his collective’s organically-built following based on streaming cover songs. “Universal Music is issuing mass takedowns of anything they own. The goal is to force Twitter and other social media sites to come to the bargaining table and work out a system of content ID. … Of course, it’s become clear that Twitter DOES exercise control of what gets circulated on on their platform — to the point of reinterpreting their terms of service on a case by case basis — which should require them to be held to the same standards of other media companies when it comes to copyright and liability. But that’s a deeper conversation. The bottom line that I [saw from] my Twitter jail cell, is that when the music industry fights big tech, artists become pawns to be used in negotiation.”A publishing executive familiar with Bradlee’s situation doesn’t disagree, noting, “Twitter does not have licenses to stream music. If Twitter wants to provide its users with the ability to stream music, they should obtain music licenses like other social platforms have done. Further, one would think that a company with a $30 billion market cap would be willing to do the right thing and pay songwriters for their work.” (Twitter did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The company typically does not comment on DMCA takedowns or account suspensions.)

That disagreement was addressed in the recently passed EU Copyright Directive’s Article 13, which decrees the sites must begin to police themselves, and will be held liable for any copyright infringements. The U.S. Music Modernization Act doesn’t go quite so far, but copyright lawyer Lisa Alter, a managing partner in the New York firm of Alter Kendrick & Baron, insists it’s a step in the right direction with the establishment of a Music Licensing Collective.“There will be a more streamlined approach to licensing,” she says. “Unfortunately, it doesn’t have provisions for these media sites to vet material.” In other words, the political clout wielded by the Googles, Facebooks and Twitters in the U.S. will make that kind of enforcement difficult until the technology to do so is developed, which should happen in Europe now that Article 13 is being enforced. “Along with the NRA and terrestrial radio, big tech is the most powerful lobby in America,” adds Alter. “It’s a real push-pull to come up with systems that work for creators as well as ISPs [Internet Service Providers]. I don’t think it’s going to happen any time soon.”Bradlee isn’t the only musician currently receiving Twitter takedown notices. His friend and frequent Postmodern Jukebox collaborator Casey Abrams, an alum of “American Idol” season 10 (2011), also had his share of Twitter beefs, ironically for playing Elton John’s “Rocketman” on sitar, which prompted a similar UMPG takedown. Could the company’s legal eagles be sharpening their talons to protect intellectual property anticipating the imminent release of the high-visibility biopic of the same name?In response to Abrams’ violation, Twitter essentially wiped out his account, removing all his followers, and forced him into a new approach to posting his own daily videos on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. “It’s one less site I have to worry about,” says Abrams, who has a jazz album coming out on May 31st. “It eliminates a lot of stress,” he downplays, noting that, “there’s not a whole lot of love on Twitter.” Musician Scott Bradlee is the leader of Postmodern Jukebox, a collective he formed in 2011 that’s amassed an impressive following by posting YouTube videos featuring vintage jazz, swing and blues covers of pop hits from Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to the Strokes and the White Stripes. With nearly 4 million subscribers, Postmodern Jukebox’s take on songs like Radiohead’s “Creep” (62 million views) and Panic at the Disco’s “High Hopes” have been watched more than a billion times.So when Bradlee received a notice of a copyright violation from Twitter on April 20 for a two-year-old, 20-second-long clip of him improvising the chorus to Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” on piano (without vocals), it hit him where his own music lived – on the Internet. “I received a Twitter suspension for playing the chorus of Elton John’s ‘Crocodile Rock’ on the piano,” Bradlee told Variety on April 24. “It wasn’t a commercial use and I wasn’t selling it. It was me making a fun recording on my iPhone.” Still, Abrams is perplexed at the ban. “People are posting mean and hurtful things, there’s violence, and we get punished for posting a song with love in our heart? That’s just crazy.”Copyright expert Alter says the music business’ ‘whack-a-mole” method of controlling its intellectual property is a leftover from the 1998 DMCA act. “There’s a whole new industry consisting of companies that get hired by publishers to troll the Internet, particularly YouTube, and find unlicensed music. Then the decision becomes whether to try to monetize through a synchronization license or simply take it down.“The tech industry claims that accessibility should trump copyright protection. Accessible does not translate to free. The beauty of the U.S. Constitution is that it protects original works of authorship, implemented by laws, even as it moves forward to alternate means of production and distribution.”Says Bradlee: “I don’t blame the music publishers; my beef is with Twitter. I just don’t think it’s good for society. You’re going to suspend a kid who makes a cover video for a song just as you would someone issuing violent threats? I’ve come to recognize all the ways our society and brains are being programmed by social media. And this is from someone whose band broke on YouTube.”Additional reporting by Michele Amabile Angermiller  Citing the now-antiquated 1990s-era Digital Millennial Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown provision, Twitter sent the musician a letter it received from David Benjamin, Head of Content Protection for Universal Music Group Publishing “asking for your immediate assistance in stopping this unauthorized activity.” Shortly after the warning, Scott learned from Twitter his account had been suspended “as the result of multiple copyright infringement notifications.” He then took to Facebook to express his outrage. And while he contacted both UMPG, which has since withdrawn the complaint, and Twitter about his account (which has since been reinstated), Bradlee was none too pleased at the hassle.last_img read more

first_img Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Valls said a culture of fear had taken root as violence becomes more pronounced.“In Corsica, people know but they do not say,” he said.More than 200 kilometers (120 miles) off the coast of France and with an insular culture that extends to an obscure dialect closely linked to Italian, Corsica has always been isolated from the mainland.But Valls said it would not be abandoned to criminals and declared that French law would prevail.“Corsica is France,” he said. “It is not a territory apart.”Christiane Taubira, France’s justice minister, acknowledged that only four of the 60 most recent killings on the island had ended in convictions and promised that the government would do better.“A minority of murderers, assassins, crooks and mafiosi do not control the territory,” she said. “It’s the large majority of Corsicans who control the territory, and they will have the last word.”Corsica, the starting point for next year’s Tour de France, is a tourist destination famed for its wild beaches and mountain vistas. Twenty years ago, the island was the scene of dozens of bombings, most of them linked to the homegrown nationalist movement that has persisted since the island was definitively taken over by the French under Napoleon in 1796. Hoping to sap some of the nationalists’ strength, the French government tried to wipe out the Corsican tongue, a mix of French and Italian that UNESCO lists as a language in danger of extinction. But the language has made something of a comeback in recent years and is again taught in schools.But Valls said France and Corsica were one and called on Corsicans to mobilize for their own future.“If you know something, you have to talk. Everyone has to take responsibility,” he said.After the lawyer’s death, the French government promised a series of measures to bring the Corsican administration closer to the central government in Paris.Among them were sending more investigators and improving efforts against money laundering, drug trafficking and bribes for lucrative public works contracts.Valls send the government will send 22 new officers to bolster the police and gendarmes.“The state will not surrender, will not retreat,” said Taubira.Patrick Strozda, the highest French official in Corsica, said the latest killing tipped the balance.

All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Associated PressPARIS (AP) – A prominent Corsican shopkeeper was killed by a masked gunman on one of the French island’s busiest streets. Nearby, a defense lawyer was shot by two men on a motorcycle as he stopped for gas on his way to work.The two high-profile recent deaths in the capital, Ajaccio, prompted the French government on Thursday to pledge to restore order on the Mediterranean island, long troubled by violent separatists and organized crime. France’s highest security official and its top justice official insisted that Corsica, an island of 300,000 people with their own language and culture and known as “The Isle of Beauty,” is an integral part of France and would not be abandoned to criminals.Violence is a daily affair in Corsica, though largely confined to the criminal underworld. But the two most recent killings in the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte struck down two men considered pillars of the community, and appeared to mark a turning point for a government that had largely let the turbulence slide in recent years.Jacques Nacer owned a clothing store in Ajaccio’s bustling commercial district and was chief of Corsica’s chamber of commerce. Antoine Sollacaro was a lawyer who handled some of the island’s most sensitive cases, including defending the man convicted in the killing of a local official.Both Nacer and Sollacaro, according to French media, had ties with the former nationalist leader Alain Orsoni, who returned to Corsica in 2008 after years abroad and now leads the local soccer club.Interior Minister Manuel Valls said an average of 33 people are killed each year in Corsica _ or about 20 percent of France’s gangland murders _ on a tiny territory that holds less than 1 percent of the country’s total population.
